Knock-out sea views, direct access onto the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and a beach within reach
This campsite will have you dancing a little jig of joy as soon as you’ve stepped foot on its delightful ground. Nuzzling the shores of the Irish Sea, the gaping National Trust land on which the farm and campsite reside offers knock-out views along the coast as well as direct access to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and a sheltered swimming cove. Owner Ian is a softly spoken guy who greets campers with warmth and ease. He and his wife Judy opened the site back in 1992 with just a tiny green corner of grass for campers. Since then he’s added a flat terrace with electrical hook-ups, situated even closer to the coast, for families and, because two is never a crowd, a third field – huge, undulating and guarded by a magnificent army of hawthorn bushes – has also been cleared for camping. The farm’s evolution didn’t stop there; its diminishing outbuildings have also been transformed into an impressive facilities block, while barns have become year-round holiday accommodation, activity and dining spaces, or cosy, ivy-clad bunk houses. The camping meadows have almost become a footnote to the rest of the farm’s great holiday offerings, albeit the sort of footnote that you’ll instantly remember and will return to again and again and again. Testament to the site’s allure are the tales of grumpy teenagers who arrive in a sulk at the lack of mobile-phone signal, but who after a week of outdoor activities, campfires and barbecues, become tearful when it comes to going home. One or two Hipcamp authors may even confess to having felt the same way on packing up their tents…

Everything I guess is a trade off. The views are amazing and it’s dog friendly. Other campers there are very sociable but I was amazed at how quiet it was at night. The stars were amazing. The down side… and I hate to say it because I don’t think it should put u off, but maybe prepared… the shower and toilet facilities are not the best. They are a little dirty. If the owners got to grips with this the place would be perfect

Grass pitch (No hook up)
Lovely place to camp, views were great, location is good for walking along the coastline or going out for the day. Got to admit spent a lot of time just relaxing on the site just looking at the views. Having great weather helped but would have been a lovely place if it wasn’t. Yes there’s porta loos in the fields, but these were clean, if a little wobbly, but there’s also great toilet and shower facilities in the main blocks which were good. On top the facilities, the shop and more importantly the takeaway food options were great for when we didn’t feel like cooking. Will camp there again
From the host
Celtic Camping is a rustic open field site, which gives you the space to breathe, the space to play and the space to relax.  Our Pembrokeshire camping site is set in 250 acres of open farmland, you can enjoy knockout ocean views, our own little cove pebble beach of ‘Aber Pwll’, easy access to the ‘Pembrokeshire Coastal Path’, which runs directly through the farm and a wealth of stunning local activity beaches around our coastline. IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Whilst Wales is now at alert level 0 - So you must still: - follow social distancing rules with people you don’t live with or who are not in your extended household - wear a face covering (if you are able to) in all indoor public places (not including hospitality) and public transport. "Please do not travel to the campsite if you or anyone in your household has COVID-19 symptoms. Please also show consideration for everyone in the local community. We also urge everyone to respect social distance in and around the campsite plus whilst you are out in the local area and maintain good hand sanitation - very masks and face-covering where appropriate". Remember "Hands, Face, Space"
Nearby attractions
The pebble beach is a 10-minute walk away – just off the coast path. It’s small but has rockpools and is good for swimming. Or ramble along the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path for just over 30 minutes towards Abereiddi’s famous Blue Lagoon. For the activities, we use external providers and you are welcome to book directly with them. Here are a few companies that we work with:  Man Up UK - 07855 954702  CELTIC QUEST COASTEERING - 01348 837337 TYF ADVENTURE  - 01437 721 611 ADVENTURE BEYOND - 01239 612133 - 07787123761 They all have pretty amazing websites and offer a fantastic service. We can also put you in touch with a local boat company (Voyages of Discovery - 01437 721911) that runs fantastic trips around our islands and just offshore.
Food and drink
There are lots of places that you can visit locally and whilst we are slightly remote taxis are not a problem. There is also a local bus service that runs infrequently up and down the coast road. St Davids, which is 4 miles away, has a number of really good pubs The Bishops and The Farmers Arms, along with some cracking hotel restaurants; St Davids Cross Hotel and The Grove Hotel. In the other direction, Porthgain, which is a tiny fishing village with a famous pub called "The Sloop"; which serves fine ales and very good food and is set in a beautiful location. Also in Porthgain, you can also find the fabulous fish restaurant 'The Shed' which serves up delicious fish and chips and freshly caught fish specials. If you are looking for breakfast you can either eat here on-site, (when we are open) or venture into St Davids where you will find The Mill cafe and Pilgrims Cafe at Oriel y Prac but if you are looking for something different there is the amazing restaurant The Really Wild Emporium. There is also CK's NISA convenience store and supermarket which provides just about all your needs  - this is situated 4 miles away in St Davids.  For those who need a little more both Tescos and Morrison drop off on-site.
