10 Places to GO Camping on Pembrokeshire Coast
If you’re looking for a short holiday break, with family or friends, we’ve compiled a list of 10 campsites to try in Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Spend a night in a truly stunning area of the UK.
- Gwaun Vale Caravan Park
One of the best campsites for couples, families and groups on a walking holiday with hills and valleys all around, Gwaun Vale Caravan Park is a scenic and pet-friendly site just outside Fishguard that offers spaces for caravans with electric hook-ups and pitches tents. There is a laundry area and showers so you can have a wash after a long day walking, (great if you’re caught in the rain), and it is perfectly located for anyone catching the ferry over from Ireland. Maybe the best point, however, is that there’s a great little pub nearby!

- Tycanol Farm
As a real working farm, Tycanol Farm is the perfect site for a family to visit – especially if you have young children who just love animals and tractors. With pitches for as many as 60 tents it can get quite busy in peak seasons but that just goes to show how popular a site it is. There is also space for four caravans and campers have access to toilets, showers and a laundry area so you can give your clothes a good scrub if you get muddy out walking or cycling. The farm is situated in the very centre of the Pembrokeshire National Park so there is easy access to a wide range of activities and popular tourist spots.
- Llwyngwair Manor Holiday Park
Open from March to October each year, Llwyngair Manor Holiday Park has a friendly and fun atmosphere in the peak season and even features its own children’s playground so the kids will have plenty of entertainment even when you’re trying to relax back at the tent. There is space for as many as 80 tent pitches and both caravans and motor homes are permitted. Guests can even bring as many as two dogs (who must be kept on a lead) with them for a truly family-friendly holiday and its central location makes it ideal for walkers and cyclists to venture out into the National Park. There’s even Wi-Fi and electricity if you’re stuck in your caravan or tent because of the bad weather! You can even pre-book a breakfast for a small fee!

- Tir Bach Farm
On the working Tir Bach Farm you’ve got a number of different options when it comes to accommodation, including traditional yurt holidays! They offer a glamping experience and each comes with its own private space and even a balcony so that you can thoroughly enjoy the peaceful surroundings. If you’d rather opt for a more traditional camping experience then you can bring your own tent to stay in the levelled fields for a comfortable night’s stay. The owners have listened to a number of suggestions from past guests and have provided great facilities that even include a pizza oven! Pets are permitted on-site but must be kept on a lead because of the free-roaming animals.
