Children
Children
can play safely here; during the week vehicle movements are restricted to journeys between the site entrance and the parking and the camper van pitches are all together and to one side of the site. The only exception is Guillemot which is adjacent to the parking area anyway.
The site is dog free and with the right supervision children love toasting marsh mellows over the camp fire. There are also mowed tracks within the site where children can explore nature.

We have planted thousands of trees on our site and with the help of the Greener Camping Club we are planting more every year. Owing to our close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean the trees are slow growing and struggle to survive, however with time and a lot of care they can survive!

Our Reviews:
"Amazing - got everything
Stayed in a van - couldn’t fault it, convenient water , hook up and ready made fire pit and picnic table . Great views - enormous pitch - really gave feeling of space - hope they don’t ever reduce them in size !! Probably the most comprehensive and clean facilities we’ve ever used outside a hotel !! Good walks, bike rides and near to st David’s - a must- stay campsite" (Review on Hipcamp June 2022)

"It is not very often we will write a review for anything let alone for a campsite however on this occasion we thought we should. We have been camping for over 30 years or so and this is the best site we have ever stayed on. There are so many positives it is hard to list them all, nonetheless, it is worth mentioning the size of the pitches and the excellent facilities which are in fantastic condition and immaculate in every way. The attention to detail for every campers need is what really impressed us, again there are so many examples to list but the extent of recycling bins we have never seen elsewhere. And last but not least the friendly and helpful hosts, Richard and Fran. A truly great camp site, go and check it out for yourselves" (Review on Google June 2022)
