Sunny day at the site

General

  • 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 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.

Back to basics camping, beautiful and charming13/08/2020

    To quote a famous advertising campaign:- "It was exactly as it said on the tin". Really easy to book on pitchup. Toilets although basic were cleaned and regularly stocked with loo roll. Occasionally it ran out, but the site was very busy. I didn't brave the cold showers, but plenty did. Rhys came and checked on our booking, and was charming. Free wood for burning. 5 mins walk from the coast path, 15 mins walk from the beach. Set amongst the Beautiful Pembrokeshire countryside. What more could you ask for. Thank you very much.

    Disliked: 

    The toilets could perhaps do with updating. But we knew that from the website. The fact that it's all a bit basic, I'm sure keeps away the less hardy campers. By giving such a positive review(which it thoroughly deserves) I may encourage lots more campers, which could then detract from it's charm.

    Great location, close to coastal path and easy walk into St Davids. Plenty of space and everyone on site was very friendly. Owners are clearly very trusting, we never saw any staff having booked online and other campers just told us to pitch up wherever.

    Disliked: 

    An upgrade on the toilet facilities would make it better still.

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.
