Pencarnan Farm Caravan and Camping Site: Private vehicle access is available to Porthsele beach

General

  • Family-run site situated on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path
  • Direct access to Porthsele beach; a mile from Whitesands
  • Farm shop, coffee hut, bar and pizzas available in high season

Fancy a stay on a family-run farm… with direct access to a beach below? Make your way to Pencarnan Farm Caravan and Camping Site, a 96-acre farm overlooking Porthsele beach on the Pembrokeshire coast. The site is on the most western tip of Pembrokeshire, with views of St Georges Channel connecting the Irish and Celtic seas.

You'll be in good company with a stay here: generations of the same family have been running the site since the mid-1950s, a holiday spot for guests who return year after year – some with their kids and grandkids now in tow. This place is just the ticket for outdoor adventures too, as it's set directly above Porthsele beach (with private vehicle access so you can cart all your kit along with you).

The sea and bay are safe for swimming and kayaking, and there are plenty of rockpools to explore at low tide. If you haven’t got your fill of sea breeze, surfing beach Whitesands is a one-mile walk along the coastal path or, if you’re feeling adventurous, a half-mile swim or kayak from Porthsele.

Sorting supplies is easy at the farm too: in the high season, a site shop is on hand with camping and food supplies, wetsuits and logs for beach fires, and a coffee hut opens every day. A bar and pizzas are also available at peak times.

    We had never been before! The fields are beautiful and spacious. Our children loved playing and running around freely.
    The views are stunning. The courtyard was a hit with adults and children, a beautiful little spot to socialise, have a coffee, a pizza by night. A stunning roof top area to enjoy a drink and breath taking views and sunset. Not forgetting the private little beach which was literally a 5 minute walk.
    Perfect in every way and we cannot wait to return next year... The family of staff are all so lovely too. See you all again😀
    Thank you😁

    Views are stunning with the beach right by the campsite. Sandy beach with lots of rocks when the tide is out. Easy walk to boat trips and a larger sandy beach, although uneven walk along the coastline so may be difficult for people who are unsteady on their feet. Great little shop, good you can swap your ice packs for frozen ones. Pizza was very nice and great having a little bar and cafe. Was live music one evening which was also very good. Showers are basic but does the job. Toilets look a bit tired but were always clean. Great place to stay, enjoyed the boat trips to see dolphins, seals and Ramsey Island. Hosts were very helpful and friendly.

    Disliked: 

    Lack of phone signal....was hit and miss in the field I was in.

Local attractions

This is heaven for beach buffs: Porthsele and Whitesands beaches are both within walking distance of Pencarnan. At Porthsele, take your pick from kayaking, surfing and paddleboarding from its sandy shore; if fishing's more your bag you can fish for mackerel, pollock and seabass from the beach and from certain points on the cliff around Pencarnan's land.

There are also a few marked climbing spots around the cliffs on the land and some good entry points for coasteering or a coastal swim back to Porthsele beach… followed back at base with a sunset beach fire or barbecue to end the day. The famed surfing centre of Whitesands, a mile away on the coast path from Pencarnan, has a café, deckchairs and wetsuit hire, plus lifeguards in the summer months.

Heading south, St Justinian’s (under a mile away along the coast path) is home to RNLI St Davids Lifeboat Station and a departure point for boat trips around, onto and beyond Ramsey Island to spy seals, seabirds, porpoises, whales, dolphins and sharks. Make time too for a trip to the tiny city of St Davids, to browse its shops and galleries and take a look at sixth-century St Davids Cathedral.
