  • Simple back-to-nature site in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park
  • Boat trips around Ramsey, Skomer and Grassholm a short walk away
  • Spacious grassy pitches, spectacular views and close to the coast
If all you require from a retreat on the Pembrokeshire coast is wide open skies, plenty of grassy space and spectacular views towards St Davids and lush Welsh countryside, it’s a safe bet that Rhosson Campsite will very much float your boat. This family-run site in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is a 10-minute walk from the St Davids Lifeboat Station at St Justinian – also the departure point for boat trips around the islands of Ramsey, Skomer and Grassholm – and is half an hour’s walk from the teeny city. Set across two spacious grassy fields, this is a back-to-basics site that aims to keep things nice and simple. When you arrive, pick yourself a preferable pitch in one of two large fields overlooking the spectacular Pembrokeshire countryside; most are on a gentle downhill slope, with some flatter pitches available near the bottom of the field. As befits a simplistic site such as this, there’s oodles of space for kids to bound about and play ball games in, and campfires are also actively encouraged, so be sure to bring plenty of eats, a well-tuned guitar and your very best scary stories… Amenities include cold running water suitable for drinking and washing, as well as outdoor cold showers, and separate ladies’ and gents’ toilets. This site is generally left to run itself so isn’t always staffed – but you'll be provided with contact details should ever you need to get hold of someone.

Liked: Nice open field. Relaxed atmosphere. Sink for cleaning dishes A place to charge your phone (although the door did blow shut on the last night and we couldn't charge up before we left). Good location between coastline and St. David's. Bus stop right outside.

Non-electric grass tent or motorhome pitch

Liked: I love the locality and tranquility of this Campsite. We stay here every year and I do not tire of the views, the locality and the simplicity of this site. Plenty to see and do locally (in no particular order): St Justinian's Porthclais Whitesands Porthgain Abereiddy St David's Solva Haverfordwest

Disliked: Honestly, nothing. There is nothing to dislike about a natural back to basics site with toilets, cold showers and incredible views.

Local attractions

As the site's right in the middle of the Pembrokeshire National Coast Park, there’s a whole heap to do around here. Start off at the RNLI St Davids Lifeboat Station at St Justinian to take a boat tour around Ramsey, Skomer and Grassholm and to look out for seals, porpoises, dolphins and whales. A short two-mile drive (or half an hour’s walk) away is the handsome city of St Davids, with a 12th-century cathedral, the ruins of the medieval Bishops Palace and a good collection of independent shops and excellent eateries to peruse. Spectacular beaches fringe this area’s coastline too: a short walk away is the enclosed sandy cove of Porthsele, a splendid and peaceful spot for open beach fires and sunset gazing. Award-winning Whitesands, famed for its soft golden sands, clear waters and watersports, is the most popular beach on the peninsula and an easy three-mile drive from Rhosson, or if you’re confident when it comes to navigating tide times, you can walk to it at low tide from Porthsele. For outdoorsy and adventurous activities, a company based in St Davids organises activities such as coasteering, kayaking, surfing, and climbing for individuals and groups.
