Named one of the best Hipcamps to visit in 2023.
Amazing views
Hipcampers say this spot has amazing views.
Wales' westernmost campsite, boasting stunning views overlooking Ramsey Sound on the Pembrokeshire Coast

All manner of weird and wonderful campsites are brought to your attention via Hipcamp, but we all need a little bit of normality in our lives and this includes campsites where us average bods, whether couples or families, can enjoy a standard camping holiday – after all not all of us are searching out the weird or eccentric.

This is where Rhosson Ganol rides to the rescue, and where there isn’t a yurt or a tipi to be seen. Neither are the owners on a campaign to save the planet, and there is absolutely nothing strange or uniquely different trying to sell the site to the camping punters. They (the Griffiths family – Henry, David and Kate) just want their guests to enjoy their holidays.

The wide and unspoilt view may very well be the strongest reason for falling in love with Rhosson Ganol, but there is something else here gnawing at the senses, and it could be that feeling of being in a place where there is nothing beyond. In effect this is the Welsh version of Land’s End, or John o’ Groats, with Rhosson Ganol being the westernmost campsite in Wales. All this can be felt in your bones, too, sitting outside the tent staring happily and vacantly out at the sea on a warm summer evening.

Right, enough notional nonsense, for this is a fantastically practical place to come for that normal camping holiday we promised. Before venturing too far from the site in search of things to see and do it is worth kicking off the explorations by strolling down to that rocky little cove at Porthstinian, where a few leisurely facts become clear. The first being that a walk along the coast path from here is eminently possible, with a bus service bringing walkers back to base at the end of the day.

There are also quite a number of boat trips running out of Porthstinian, offering a bewildering variety of aquatic adventures including contrasts such as a visit to the RSPB reserve on Ramsey Island, to an outrageously mad jet-boat session in the whirlpools and big, big waves that batter this coastline. Added to all this is the existence of a nice beach just half a mile away, the city (well, it’s a village really) of St Davids just over a mile, and the whole of west Pembrokeshire readily accessible from this small campsite, which teeters on the very edge and makes a normal kind of holiday something rather extraordinary.

Amazing sea views
Amazing tent pitch with views over the sea and Ramsey Island. The walks along the coastal trails are very beautiful and has a lot of flora along the way which is very nice to see. Really nice spot for a swim off the pier also, the water is very clear. Shower's were very clean and good supply of hot water. Very close to St Davids for some lunch and a pint.

Grass pitch
Peaceful site in Pembrokeshire
We really enjoyed our stay at Glan Y Mor. It is located within easy walking distance of the town of Pembroke and a short drive from the beautiful coastline. The campsite is quiet and peaceful with a lovely woodland walk. We really enjoyed the communal shelter and fire pit and toasted some marshmallows with other friendly campers. There are great hot showers and toilets on site and dishwashing facilities. The owners are also really friendly and welcomed us onto site.

One word… STUNNING
We’ve just come back from a long weekend at the campsite… omg what a beautiful place! Amazing location newgale and white sands on the door step, the view you wake up to ever morning of ramsey island is unbelievable! I accidentally booked a grass pitch for our tourer caravan, but david was so lovely and upgraded us to an electric pitch free of charge! 10/10 clean spotless toilets and hot showers. Dog friendly. WiFi isn’t brilliant but to be honest we wanted to give our phones and TV a break so didn’t bother us… but you won’t have time for social media and texting when you’re in such a beautiful part of the world. RNLI station definitely worth a visit you can see it from the site, visit the cathedral it’s stunning and all the little shops in st David’s! We can’t wait to return! Thank you so much David

Wonderful site, great for walking
I had a fantastic stay on David’s site. The hookup location gave me wonderful views over the sea and Ramsey Island. The washing facilities, while a bit of a walk away, were spotlessly clean. The site was an excellent starting point for walks on the coast path and within easy reach of St David’s on foot. Although Wi-Fi was advertised, I couldn’t find a network, but who goes camping for Wi-Fi anyway? I’ll be back!
