Camping and glamping with immaculate facilities, wood-fired pizzas, and sea views to and Abereiddy and Porthgain.

Ah, Pembrokeshire. Truly a coastline to rival any of the world's greatest. Epic sea views, mysterious hidden coves, lush verdant fields – the undeniable allure of this area in south-west Wales is clear to see. This is the Welsh holiday experience. And yet, the trouble with top-rate tourist destinations is... all the blinkin' tourists! While the snap-happy hordes descend en masse to St Davids and the surrounding hives of Solva, Whitesands and Newgale, we know a little gem of a place a little off the beaten track. Head north from Pembrokeshire's tip, and tucked away a little inland from the glorious golden sands of Aberiddy beach you'll find Coastal Stay Camping.

Originally a one-season-side-project to the adjacent four-star B&B, campers were so enamoured with the stunning views and lazy lake-side air of relaxation that the owners have now re-opened for successive years. Your wonderful host Marilyn is a proud farmer's daughter who'll greet you with a sunny "shwmai" and some organic eggs and veg from the small-holding. With a well-tended field for tents, tipis and the odd caravan, friendly goats for the kids to meet, an onsite wood-fired pizza shack, and possibly the most immaculate bathroom this side of Offa's Dyke, facilities are ample to say the least.

Location-wise, Coastal Stay offers the perfect retreat from the tourist trail while still being readily accessible for all the region's stunning sites and attractions. After a day of foraging or exploring Aberfiddy's famous Blue Lagoon, you can retire back at camp to watch the sun descend over the Irish Sea. As campfire mingles with the heady scents from the herb garden and the unspoilt night sky starts to twinkle, you'll thank your lucky stars you went off the beaten track. Just remember, keep it to yourself...

Our campsite is small and intimate with just 20 pitches. We make sure that the campsite remains a calm and relaxing enviroment Our aim is to give you just enough luxury and conveniences to keep your content but not too much that you forget you are camping in Wales. Each pitch comes with its own fire pit for toasting marshmallows or cosying up with a blanket and picnic table

Nestled in the tranquility of the South Wales, coast, Marilyn's campsite proved to be a haven during my stay this past November. Remarkably flat and miraculously mud-free, these grass pitches offered a perfect foundation for setting up my large tent without the usual hassle associated with uneven terrain. One of the standout features of Marilyn's campsite is the thoughtful provision of easy car access to the pitches. This is a godsend for campers with larger tents and camping gear. What truly sets Marilyn's campsite apart, however, is the awe-inspiring backdrop of the sea. The views are nothing short of breathtaking. Beyond the picturesque scenery, Marilyn's personal touch adds a warmth and care to the camping experience. Her regular check-ins during my stay showcased a genuine concern for the well-being of her guests. Knowing that she was just a message away, ready to assist with any needs, enhanced the overall sense of security and comfort. I also find myself particularly indebted to Marilyn for her exceptional kindness in accommodating my camping request during a period when the campsite was technically closed. Rather than opting for the easy route of canceling my booking, Marilyn went out of her way to ensure my stay was not disrupted. This speaks volumes about her character and dedication to customer satisfaction. It's rare to encounter such genuine hospitality, and Marilyn's commitment to going the extra mile left an indelible impression.

Beautiful site, view, people & pets
An awesome campsite!! Such friendly hosts, gorgeous views and a beautiful site in itself. The three goats who live on site provide plenty of entertainment whilst you sip on wine, watch the sun set and light up the campfire. 100% recommended!

The location was wonderful, pitches are spacious, the toilets and shower rooms were always clean. It's a 20 minute walk from the local seaside village where there is a pub and restaurant, I swam in the Blue Lagoon (bit chilly, not for the fait hearted) . Ensure guide ropes are in well as can get a little windy. Will be visiting again without a doubt.

The location was gorgeous, we could see the sea, only a 20 minute walk from the local seaside village with a cute little pub, we also walked to Blue Lagoon. The small lake is lovely, the site is small but perfect, we visited in February, it was very blustery weather, we had the place to ourselves! The bathroom was lovely and warm! Can't wait to go back in the warmer weather :)

We stayed here for three nights in some truly awful weather, the indoor shower room and loo were a real bonus. When the sun came out we saw that the views were gorgeous. Nicely situated and spacious pitched. We’ll definitely come again.

From the host
Escape to a beautifully finished campsite small-holding located in a National Trust Conservation area with uninterrupted views of the north Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Views overlooking the Pembrokeshire Coast National park with incredible sunsets and unhindered views of the night sky, making our campsite perfect for stargazing around a camp fire after watching the sun set into the sea at Abereiddy. An ideal and tranquil base for viewing the attractions of Pembrokeshire and only a few miles from the shops, pubs and restaurants of St Davids. If you are looking for a hi-tech holiday park then we are probably not for you. But if you want your children to know how to build a den or forage for blackberries, then our Pembrokeshire camping site will be exactly what you’re looking for. Every pitch we have provides a view of the Pembrokeshire Coast. There are a range of pitches available to suit every type of camping setup. Our standard pitch is a spacious eight by eight meters, it is perfect for small, medium and large setups. ‘Forest’ pitches are offset in a small wooded area, they provide a bit more privacy and shelter from the wind, they can accommodate small and medium tents. As well as these we have a handful of pitches that are suitable for large motor homes and caravans, they provide easy accessibility in and out of the campsite. We also have two extra large specialty pitches, specifically for dome tents, tipis or other unique setups
