  • Peaceful site with sea views, 15 minutes from Carmarthen Bay
  • A 10-minute walk from a beach and a village pub
  • Half a mile from trains to the Gower Peninsula and Cardiff
You can see the sea from Ferryside Farm Caravan Park and Campsite. Within a 15-minute drive of this peaceful south Wales getaway, there are beaches which are famed over the world. The full seven sandy miles of secluded and silky Cefn Sidan, for example, as well as stunning Amroth Bay, and the sands and surf of Rhossili, regularly voted as one of the best beaches on the planet. For families, this spot is splendid for days of rockpooling and crabbing; theme parks and similar are further away, around a 40-minute drive or so. Ferryside beach is 10 minutes’ walk away (for the former activities), as are a village pub and a couple of eateries. A kids' play area is five minutes' walk away behind the rugby club. Kidwelly, the nearest village after Ferryside, has another pub, Indian and Chinese takeaways, an off-licence and a newsagents. Keep the car or take the train: Ferryside is only a few miles off the A484 between Carmarthen and Kidwelly with quick access to both towns as well as Swansea and Llanelli, and half a mile from Ferryside rail station where you can steam ahead to the Gower Peninsula, Milford Haven, Tenby, Pembrokeshire and Cardiff or on to Crewe, London and Manchester. Facilities at Ferryside include a shower and toilet block. Guests can pick their own pitches, and dog guests are welcome too. Please note this is a quiet, peaceful site: no radios/music are to be played after 10pm and if you wish to party this isn't the site for you.

Powered cement/asphalt RV campsite

Liked: We loved everything about this site and will be coming back. Do stock up on your necessary food / drink supplies and bring a handful of 20ps for the shower. The nearest pub The White Lion was cash-only so we walked on to the Three Rivers hotel / bar at the edge of the village where a pint of ale was less than £3 need I say more!

Disliked: Nothin

Powered cement/asphalt RV campsite

Liked: Pitch size, shower block. Everything was well thought out. Dog walking area was superb. Philip was fantastic, very helpful, even lending me a long extension lead as we were on the far pitch. Showers were really good and always clean.

Disliked: The pitch was not as level as I would have liked, and I had to position the van carefully. (Basically first night I did not set up properly!) Everyone needs someone to blame!

Route directions

By car: On approaching the first roundabout in Carmarthen turn left onto the A484 for Kidwelly. After about 500 metres you will pass Morrisons on the left-hand side. Go through the village of Idole (careful - there is a speed camera!) and continue for another three miles passing the Star Forge Garage on the right. A mile down a hill, take the turning for Ferryside located on the right-hand side (opposite the turning for Llandyfaelog). As you're approaching the village, turn right immediately before the humpback bridge. Ferryside Farm is the first property on the right. By train: From London, Bristol, Cardiff, or Swansea: the village of Ferryside can be reached via Arriva and First Great Western. Please check times before travelling. On arrival head down through the village passing the school on your right. After about 1.5 miles you will cross over a humpback bridge where the property can be accessed turning left into a no through road and then right into the driveway.

Local attractions

Naturally, the beaches – and the castles – are first: a paddle on Ferryside beach gives you a chance to see 12th-century Llansteffan Castle, on the other side of the Towy Estuary. It’s not much of a surprise to find out that this perch has been protected since at least Iron Age times – there was once an Iron Age fort here built by savvy ancestors protecting their section of bay from invaders. If you want to pop over for a look (as you should), it's a half-hour drive to get there. A fine collection of other castles are in the vicinity – it is Wales after all: 12th-century Kidwelly Castle and 11th-century Carmarthen Castle are the closest, but Laugharne is within 17 miles, Oystermouth 27, Newcastle Emlyn 28 and Carew 36. Once (or before) the castles are conquered, Carmarthen Bay, the Gower Peninsula and neighbouring Pembrokeshire have so many award-winning beaches you are hereby challenged to get around them in one trip. If you then fancy something inland, get to Colby Woods and Gardens or Pembrey Country Park, which has a dry ski slope, wildlife trails, horse riding and the longest toboggan run in Wales. Two types of racing are within 15 minutes of Ferryside: motor at Pembrey Racing Circuit and horse at Ffos Las Racecourse.
