Ffynnonddewi Camping The Greener Camping Club

UK Wales South Wales Pembrokeshire Newgale

Dog-friendly camping with campfires permitted and all just a 20-minute walk from a sheltered swimming cove

You know you’ve found a special spot for a holiday when you wish your getaway could last forever. It’s a feeling that Gareth and Luci Chapman know only too well, having experienced it year after year during their camping trips on the Pembrokeshire coast. Not content with poring over the photographs of cliff-top walks and salt-water-washed coves, the couple decided to up roots and harness that holiday feeling. The result is Ffynnonddewi Camping, just a few miles from St Davids and some of the best beaches on the Welsh coast.

Pitch up on one of Ffynnonddewi’s grassy pitches and you’re surrounded by miles of farmland with a 20-minute walk across fields to Porthmynawyd Cove. From here, you can turn left on the Wales Coast Path for a two-mile walk to the sand and surf of Newgale Beach or right towards the harbour village of Solva. But this is Pembrokeshire, remember, so expect some fairly challenging ups and downs on the way. And, if that sounds too much like hard work, just ignore the path and take a few more steps for Porthmynawyd’s low-tide sands and swimming in sheltered, turquoise waters.

It was coast and country that lured Gareth and Luci to Pembrokeshire’s quieter, northern end and that’s exactly what their campsite showcases. There’s nothing flashy about the place (apart from the gleam of their immaculate facilities). They’ve kept things simple with a couple of family bathrooms, an undercover washing-up area and a few convenient camping facilities which reveal that this pair know a thing or two about camping. Communal-use freezers, little phone-charging lockers and free Wi-Fi are solar powered and all part of the deal. Firepits are available to borrow and campers with dogs are well-catered for too – there’s a separate field where four-legged friends can run free and even a dedicated doggy shower.

Those walks on the coastal path are great for a day out with the dog but for two-legged campers there’s more besides. Days on the beach, wildlife watching and eating the freshest fish and chips are some of the simple pleasures that make trips to Pembrokeshire memorable. And they’re easy to find from Ffynnonddewi, with Newgale and Whitesands beaches, St Davids city and quay, and the harbour villages of Solva and Porthgain all within a 10-minute drive. But campers be warned: get a taste for these Pembrokeshire pleasures and you might find it hard to drag yourself away too. Maybe you'll end up returning to start your own campsite one day just like Gareth and Luci...

The Owner Says

Conveniently situated just outside of Solva near St Davids in Pembrokeshire and set in 10 acres of flat land and with only 15 pitches, Ffynnonddewi is a back to basics get away from it all sort of place where you will find yourself surrounded by nature.

Its just like camping used to be, but don't think we are left in the past, we have a newly built bathroom with hot showers and real flushing toilets, 4G mobile phone reception is available on most networks and we also have free, fast wi-fi across the whole site, for those that need to keep in touch with the outside world.

Our new facilities block has an under cover wash up area and all lighting and phone charging lockers are solar powered and there is also a campers freezer for your ice blocks.

Camping wouldn't be camping without a campfire and we have fire pits for your use and plenty of wood available to purchase on site. There is nothing better than cosying up around a roaring campfire for a bit of stargazing and being so close to a designated dark sky observation point, the night sky's can be truly stunning.
