Ferryside Farm Caravan Park and Campsite

9.7

This park does not currently take bookings here on Pitchup.com.

General

  • 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.

But pack the bucket and spade and then an extra one or two, for within a 15-minute drive of this peaceful south Wales getaway you’ll also reach beaches famed the world over. 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.

Keep the car or take the train from here: 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.

And that sea you can see from the farm? It and Ferryside beach are 10 minutes’ walk away, 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.

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.

    Lovely, quiet site with only 3 pitches in use during our stay. Spotlessly clean facilities block, well maintained. Only 2 loos, 2 washbasins, 2 showers so could get busy if at full capacity but was perfect for our 2 night stay.
    Well situated site for Wales Coast Path, especially when using local train service to access different sections.
    A warm welcome from Phil who takes a friendly interest in his guests. Short walk to the White Lion where we had an amazing Sunday lunch.
    Would happily stay at Ferryside again.

    The campsite is in a very scenic place and picnic tables are provided to sit and enjoy the view. The facilities are attractive and well looked after. Phil is very welcoming and friendly and does his best to be helpful. We found the site very quiet. Although the trains are audible late evening and early morning they did not trouble us. The site is sloping. We found a flat pitch which suited us very well near the loos. The high field is a long way from the toilets but has an excellent view and Phil allowed the tents up there to use a fire pit. There are only two showers and two loos for each of the men's and women's areas. This worked surprisingly well when we were there in September despite the large number of touring caravans which are obviously on the site semi-permanently. Phil allowed us to use a freezer for freezer packs and a place to charge our phone

    Disliked: 

    There are coin operated showers which is a nuisance as so few people carry coins these days. 40p for 2 minutes and £1 for 7 minutes.

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.

Must see

  • Pembrey Country Park (6.8 miles)
  • National Botanic Garden of Wales (10.2 miles)
  • National Wetland Centre Wales (12.7 miles)

National Trust

  • Rhossili Visitor Centre and Shop (14.5 miles)
  • Tudor Merchant's House (16.1 miles)

Cycle routes
