Porthclais Farm Campsite situated near St Davids in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is a small family run campsite catering for caravaners and campers, open from Easter to the end of October, with the most beautiful sea views. It is bordered to the south by the cliff path and St Brides Bay and to the west by Porthclais Harbour where small boats can be launched.

The campsite covers a large area: 24 acres are available for tents and one field of 5 acres is licensed for 12 touring caravans. The campsite is flat and well-drained and ideal for camping. Another field of 4 acres will be available this year for August Bank Holiday and High Season.

A new toilet/shower building provides EXTRA facilities: 7 toilets, 6 wash basins, 3 free hot showers for ladies; 3 free hot showers for men.

We also have Craig-yr-Awel, a new static caravan to let, please enquire for details.

Sandy beaches are nearby; Whitesands is blue flag standard and manned by lifeguards. For walkers there is direct access onto the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path.

Enquiries and bookings are welcome. Charging is on a per person basis; there is plenty of space for extra tents and toilet tents. Booking is advisable for touring caravans and campervans. Campers are asked to register at the farm house on arrival. Dogs are allowed.

MJ's Dairies provides deliveries twice daily to the site; at approx 8.30am they arrive to deliver milk, free range eggs, bread, fruit juice, bacon, sausages, croissants and Danish pastries. They return again in the evening to supply barbecue meats, salads and cooked jacket potatoes along with many other goods. No prior orders are required and all requests will be met to the best of their ability.

Porthclais Farm Campsite is situated just next to the famous Pembrokeshire Coastal Path with its miles of spectacular scenery. The offshore islands of Skomer, Grassholm and Ramsey are renowned for their resident and migrant birds and grey seal colonies. Open air theatres and concerts take place in the medieval Bishop's Palace. The historic Cathedral City/village of St Davids is just half a mile away, with a wide range of shops, banks and restaurants.

A little distance away is the beautiful sandy Caerfai beach, one of the four best beaches in the British Isles (Holiday Which). Very safe for small children and toddlers with shallow rock pools for paddling and shrimping.

The large sandy beach of Whitesands is nearby. This has golden sands at all stages of the tide, with easy access for pushchairs from the adjacent car park. Whitesands is an EEC Standard Blue Flag Beach (free from contamination and manned by Lifeguards). Enjoy a quiet picnic and swim at the sheltered sandy beaches of Porthlysgi, Porthselau, Porth-melgan or Caerbwdi, accessible only on foot. The large sandy beaches of Traethllyfn and Newgale are only a few miles away. Abercastle, Aberbach and Abermawr have rock pools and sandy beaches. The tiny picturesque Porthclais harbour, beloved by children for "crabbing", has a slipway for launching small boats and free boat park. There is also a famous lifeboat station at Porthstinian. Boat and fishing trips to the offshore islands are organised by local fishermen.
