Pencarnan Farm Caravan and Camping Site: Overlooking 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.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

No bachelor/bachelorette parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

    Location, friendly staff.Lovely courtyard area for outdoor eating.

    Disliked: 

    Sadly the facilities and bins hadn't been cleaned for some time and there was a serious leak in the ladies toilet block. Once cleaned up after a couple of days, they were perfectly adequate, if a bit tired. Showers we're hot even if a bit cranky. Not great for a winter stay but we'd definitely come back in the summer.
    Hook up in lower fields was only low voltage so not enough for toaster and kettle but not a problem for us in a campervan.

    Fantastic location and the local ‘private’ beach was stunning.
    The walk to the bigger beach was very pleasant and easy.
    We stayed out of season so can’t comment on the cafe but it looked good.
    Hook up for our van was v close to pitch and water access was easy.
    Staff were great and lent us an adapter for the electric plug.

    Will defo return.

  • Liked: 

    Relaxed approach by reception, free pick of pitch in the low season. Horses free to roam on the site gave a natural feel to it.

    Closeness to the coastal walk and local beach was great.

    1.5 mile walk in to St Davids was ideal to stretch the legs.

    Disliked: 

    A cool shower block, but it was November !!

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.

Must see

  • St Davids Cathedral (3.2 kilometers)
  • Pembrokeshire Coast National Park (32.4 kilometers)
  • Pembroke Castle (35.2 kilometers)

National Trust

  • St David's Visitor Centre and Shop (2.8 kilometers)
