Beautiful, tranquil, peaceful
Myself, partner and poochy spent two nights here from the 18th Sept until the 20th! What an absolutely beautiful setting. We were in the field closest to the brand new toilet block which was always very clean! The view we had from our tent was amazing. Our poochy was in her element with lots of areas to explore. We cant fault this site and cannot wait to visit again for longer!
Had such an amazing time here. The view was out of this world. The coastal path was a few mins walk from the site and other sights are within driving distance. Only downer for me was the toilets were a bit of a walk but everything else was amazing 😊
Great site with amazing views
This site is simple and wonderful . Super clean facilities with care to make sure it is as Covid safe as possible. Fantastic views - lots of sea breeze due to location Perfect for walkers
The view - Ramsey Island and coastline. The peace and, sunset over sea and clear night sky. Easy access to coast path. Spacious pitch with water and EHU. Friendly owner who came round every day. New facilities block very good, but we didn't use it much. We were in the field furthest away from entrance and could not get any phone or Wi-Fi connection, but that wasn't important to us. Overall it was a lovely 4 nights, even though the sea mist came down for 24 hours! Will definitely be back.
Glorious sea views from perfectly-located camp site
With grassy fields gently sloping down towards the rocky cliffs of the Ramsey Sound, Rhosson Ganol has an enviable pitch on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. The sea view over to Ramsey Island and the seals with their pups in the secluded bays are just some of the natural delights. Boat trips out into the Celtic and Irish seas are taken down the lane at Justinians RNLI station. There's a laid back vibe to the camp site which is well suited to getting away from all the complicated shite going on around the rest of the world, although if big city life still tempts, then Britain's smallest city, St Davids, is a 30 minute walk inland. And well worth exploring it is too. But, from the campsite - setting off north or south - the coastal path is the thing. Absolutely stunning.
Gorgeous views and great location
Beautiful views from our pitch and just a couple of minutes away from the coastal path which makes for stunning walks in both directions. Really felt like we were away from it all, seals on the beaches, porpoises swimming off shore. Had a great boat trip round ramsey island which left from the RNLI jetty 2 minutes walk from the campsite. And St Davids is only a 5 minute drive away so still very convenient. Quite a windy spot so I'd recommend bringing a wind-break if you want to be sitting outside eating/drinking in the evenings.
Relaxing & Beautiful
So to be honest turning up was a little confusing and trying to find where to pitch up, however once settled this location is potentially one of the most beautiful locations I have ever been too. Relaxing, tranquil & stunning. I spent my time walking along the coastal path taking in the beautiful views across the water to Ramsey island, I was fortunate to also see baby sea lions along the coast. There are beautiful beaches within walking distance and well as get yourself into the uk's smallest city of St. David's to take in the culture and a great lunch. I didn't get to do some of the amazing activities i.e. boat trips or cliff jumping eat. due to travelling alone with my dog Kodi who also loved the walks. I should also mention the facilities on site are great and I assume newish, when I called the owner they were fabulous and very helpful, I would highly recommend booking yourself a stay at this location!
Beautiful views - great site
All laid out really well. Name tag on a post, find your spot and pitch up. Pitches are large. Plenty of room for the car and tent next to it. The view from the site is stunning. Sun sets in to the sea. Lovely evenings spent with a beer watching the sunset. Modern shower block and wash facilities. Coastal paths right on the doorstep. The coastline is beautiful, seal spotting along the way! St David’s and the Cathedral a 30 minute walk away. I would 100% stay again.
Relaxing stay with extraordinary scenery and ample walking trails at your finger tips
The location and views from Rhosson Ganol are excellent. Pitch your tent and look out to sea framed by craggy cliffs and islands. There are several beautiful walking trails around the coastline accessible from the campsite with famous trails such as the Blue Lagoon walk just a short drive away. Shower and toilet facilities are modern, clean and comfortable. I stayed towards the end of the campsite where wifi and internet was very limited but this added to the peacefulness of the site. Nearby villages including St Davids and Solva are quaint, pretty and offer traditional Welsh pubs with delicious food and friendly crowds. A top pick. As a solo female traveller, it felt safe, comfortable and convenient. I would definitely recommend and return.
Great views, recommended
Place easy to find, big pitches, park a car next to a tent, very quiet at night and during a day too. New toilets and showers block, that are kept clean. Place to wash your dishes too. View from my tent amazing. I really liked the place. Very windy though but this is not the owners fault, just the weather...
This was our second time visiting this campsite- and won't be our last! The views are spectacular especially at sunset, pitches well marked and spaced, and the facilities excellent. Great location for exploring nearby beaches, coast paths and St Davids.
Great location to access coastal paths and walking distance to amenities .
Great location with wonderful views over Ramsey Island. Beautiful walks along the coast and to historic St David’s with good food and amenities. Looking forward to our next visit.
Beautiful location, great site
We loved our weekeend here. The sunsets are so beautiful, and the location is so lovely, looking out to see and Ramsay island. Great showers, a perfect base for exploring Pembrokeshire.
Location, location, location - beautiful, clean and uncomplicated.
Exquisite views from where you stand on lovely flat pitches. This is a perfect place for simple, peaceful enjoyment of the peninsula, with very quick access to the coastal path. Toilet block was spotless. We are returning!
Decent campsite with great scenery
Situated very close to some nice coastal walks and the views are great from the camping field. The washing up facility with the family showroom is nice but the toilets and showers for men and women are very dated and not great condition. Hopefully they’ll replace these with nicer facilities in the future but they’re useable.
Great campsite with incredible views
Lovely site, helpful staff and great new facility block. We didn't manage to stay as long as intended due to Storm Ellen, but will definitely look at coming back another time.
Beautiful views over Ramsey island! Great facilities, cold water tap at every electric hook up. Brand new shower/toilet block with a family shower room which is really handy with little ones! Would definitely recommend bringing a bike as the walk into St David’s is quite far. Friendly and helpful owners, really enjoyed our stay, thank you!
Fantastic location, great facilities - perfect pitch!
This is a fantastic location - right on the coast with beautiful views over to Ramsey and plenty of scenic paths to explore. The site is very well maintained and organised, the facilities are excellent (particularly the new shower block complete with a family shower room) and there is ample space between pitches. We enjoyed being right at the end of the top field and, although these meant a little walk to the facilities, that wasn't a problem for us at all. The owner is great - we had mistakenly pitched our tent in his site rather than the one next door but he couldn't have been more gracious in the face of our error. We had a perfect stay and would return (ensuring to book the correct site this time)!
The Rhosson Ganol site is set in one of the most beautiful locations have have been too, with some stunning walks along the coast located right next to the site. A short drive away there are some lovely villages with great pubs and all the amenities you need. There is a beach which is a 15 min walk away but there are no public toilets, but if you drive out a little there are some great beaches. the only down side to the site are the showers and loos are a bit of a walk and apart from the family bath room they are all a bit dated.
This site has lovely views over Ramsey Island. It has pretty basic facilities, which are over the road, but we didnt use them due to COVID19. The pitches are flat and we obviously booked electric hook up, which was a bonus. It got a bit breezy one night, being quite exposed and there was quite a bit of sea mist. But the weather can't be helped. We really enjoyed it though. Away from all the hustle and bustle.
Submerged in beauty!!
A basic site with lovely, clean, new facilities. The area and views are stunning and the site enables you to enjoy them from your tent. Sandy beaches and coves With crystal clear sea, amazing coastal path with wild life and flowers in abundance- all very near to the site. Friendly and helpful staff who leave you to it unless you ask for help. It really did feel like another world.
We loved it. No fuss and lots of space. The Griffiths family are really welcoming and working super hard to adapt everything for covid-19 precautions. It does get windy so be prepared for that!
A beautiful campsite right on the coast.
Fantastic views out towards Ramsey Island in the Pembrokeshire Coast. The family room washing facilities were great. You really feel as if you are away from it all here.
We just keep coming back!
We love it at Rhosson Ganol! This is our favourite campsite and we return every year. This year was very special as we brought our 9 month old camping for the first time and she loved it! It has the best views, coastal path access, friendly owners and good facilities all for a reasonable price. This year they have added new facilities making our stay even easier as there is now a family shower room and a washing up room. We will be back again next year!
Perfect get away!
What a beautiful area for a campsite! We unfortunately only stayed here for 1/2 nights as we accidentally stayed in the wrong campsite on our first night without realising! However, we were lucky enough to realise the following day and what a great camp we had in stall for us for the second night! The staff were very understanding and helpful with our clumsy mix up when we'd explained what had happened, and quickly resolved the issue. The views are absolutely stunning, watching the sun set over the sea from Porthselau beach (a 5 minute direct walk or a 20 minute coastal path walk) was simply magical, add a barbecue and some drinks to the scene and it was undoubtedly perfect! The campsite itself was very, very clean, peaceful and spacious and everyone is given plenty of space to pitch their tents. The hot showers were a blessing compared to our cold showers at the wrong campsite the previous night (silly us!) and although we didn't use the freezer that's on site, it's a great little gesture to save you from buying food each day. The Nisa shop in st David's was quite busy so if you can, try to avoid obvious times where there could be a queue. Whitesands Bay is great for a sausage and bacon roll in the morning if you don't fancy cooking your own food, plus you can do some sunbathing (if you're lucky) and have a dip in the sea whilst you're there! There are plenty of activities around such as surf schools and coasteering plus the gorgeous coastal path! We stopped in Aberaeron and Porthglain en route for some lovely honey ice cream and scrumptious fish and chips at The Shed, respectively. We would highly recommend this campsite to anyone, first time campers or pro campers, the location is ideal and the campsite was perfect, we will definitely be staying here again! Diolch yn fawr!
We stayed at Rhosson Ganol with friends and enjoyed a weekend of exploring local beaches, towns and good food. The site is situated right on the coast and every pitch has glorious views. It's a very short walk to Porthselau and only a drive to many others. We loved Caerfai, so beautiful. We would absolutely stay again!
My wife took me here and it was great. All you hear is the cows, birds, sheep and the ocean. Waking to Ramsey island for breakfast and fantastic walks around the coast path. The people were friendly and the farmers arms on goat st was excellent. John was on hand for anything we needed great guy. If your looking for relaxation you've found it, we were there for 4days and had a magnificent time, so pack your bags and get out here you'll love it. Big thanks to john and Wales happy campers Rosy and Arron
beautiful location for basic camping - not for beginners
This site is in a really lovey location and the description from the owners is accurate. This was our 3rd site on our holiday and i'm glad it wasn't the 1st as it could have really put us off camping due to basic or lack of facilities. As it was, we were getting into the swing of things with our two small children and so this just added to our adventure. We found the owner after driving around the whole site a couple of times and he told us where our pitch was. We had to find him again to ask where the loos etc were - across the road away from the site, very basic and no washing up facilities. So tips - lovely location but take a camping loo, bottled water and a washing up bowl etc! Also very exposed site (clear from pics) so have a windbreak and strong tent.
Lovely campsite at a great location
We really enjoyed our stay the Rhosson Ganol campsite. The campsite is conveniently located at a walking distance from St. Davids and very close to Pembrokshire NT. The grass pitch was flat and clean, and the hosts were friendly and welcoming - that's all I'm asking for!
Poor facilities in beautiful surroundings
There is zero information on arrival. There is no reception and no information where to find the owners. There is only one shower for men and one washbasin - one! And the site is not small. Even with only a few guests, you can queue. The toilets and showers are rarely cleaned. When I asked the owner for a possibility to wash dishes, he explained to me that the campsite was located in a nature reserve and therefore no permission had been granted for the construction of another building. I should therefore wash my dishes in my caravan. But we only have a tent? Then next to the tent. All clear, in a nature reserve... Maybe the authorities shouldn't have approved a camping site in a nature reserve. But who thinks of such details as washing dishes?
Lovely campsite in a beautiful location
We loved our stay at Rhosson Ganol. The pitches were well organised and spaced out. The facilities are basic but had everything we needed. Close enough to walk to St David's (around 40 mins) but far away enough to feel like you were in the middle of nowhere. We will definitely be back.
A pleasure as always
We keep coming back to this site, aside from the idyllic location and stunning views it’s exactly what you want from a campsite. Well kept with friendly hosts and a really nice atmosphere! We’ve been a few times now and went on a boat trip just at the bottom of the hill and had a fantastic experience all round! Definitely going to be coming back again!
Peaceful & Simple
A remote idealistic location. Back to basics camping, with simple amenities. The view is fantastic, and the location is so peaceful. Right in the coastal path, and a short drive anywhere. Would definitely visit again
Relaxed site with stunning views
Stunning views across Ramsey and and Carn Llidi. Nicely kept site. Refreshing lack of notices rules etc. Free wi-fi but short range so not available on most pitches. Some information about what to expect would have been useful. Eventually discovered that pitches were assigned but were free to move to a different pitch if vacant. Had to ask other campers for wi-fi password and where to find the facilities. Location of toilets and showers was remote from the site, clean but with some functioning issues. Worst point was chemical toilet emptying facility which was a long walk from the site and just a manhole cover to lift in the middle of a narrow path to the gents, tap near by but no hose for washing down. Despite these minor points, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend it.
Peaceful and friendly
Spacious pitches very close to the coast with great views and even better walking trails. Also good for lifeboat trips around Ramsey Island. Good wifi access and clean (although basic) toilet block. Very friendly staff even found us a pitch when we had accidentally arrived a day early! Would recommend visiting if you fancy a chilled out break to connect with nature
Brilliant place, friendly, peaceful and beautiful.
Rhosson Ganol was a great campsite. Flat field nice short grass with a large pitch. The views were out of this world. The site is surrounded by stunning g sea views. Short walk to a lovely secluded dog friendly cove with blue clean sea sand and pebbles. I will go back! So will my dog.
Stunning location, escape from it all!
Have just returned from our stay at Rhosson Ganol and found it a truly wow location. We were able to book and pay for our pitch online which was really convenient. David let us know that he had reserved us a pitch on the big camping field overlooking Ramsey Island & when we arrived we were delighted by the stunning location. The camping fields were well maintained, grass all mown and many perfectly flat pitches so perfect for tenting! We were right at the front of the camping field so an unobstructed view out over the sea and Ramsey Island (apart from a fairly low Gorse hedge which was welcome shelter from the wind!) The site is in a stunning, rugged location on a wild and beautiful bit of coastline. The night we stayed was lovely and quiet so the perfect relaxing, uplifting get away from it all. But I know the site gets busier over the main bank holiday weekends and school holidays. We visited to walk on the coast path and the location couldn't have been better. It was a very short walk from site onto path which runs just in front of farm fields. And from there you can walk along one of the most special stretches of the Pembs coast path and catch the Celtic coaster bus right back to the site entrance. The facilities were fairly basic and a bit of a walk from the bottom of the main camping field ( so something to be aware of if you have small kids), but perfectly clean and had everything we needed (toilets & showers) so we were more than happy as we love proper old style camping trips! Being right out on the most westerly peninsula of Wales, the site is quite exposed to the wilds of the Welsh weather, but we were more than prepared for this and had no problems even in the rather brisk wind when we visited as we had all the necessary camping kit for such eventualities :) plus the upside of this location is the stunning views of the sea to 3 sides of you, which for us more than outweighs a bit of exposure to the weather! Loved our visit and wished we could have stayed longer. Will definitely be back very soon. Thanks to all at Rhosson Ganol for making such a wonderful place to get away from it all.
The view is WOW, the friendliness is lovely!
Best not to use GoogleMaps to guide you to the site, but once there the view felt special. The facilities were very clean and the showers were fab, you just have to plan your visit to them from the top end of the field! The only reason I haven’t given a 5* was although we had a very friendly welcome and allowed to stay longer than planned, more information about how to get to places and places to get to would have been useful. But apart from that, a very memorable lovely time had and would definitely recommend it!
This site is awesome! We stayed for 3 nights and loved every second. The weather was fairly changeable including sun, rain and strong winds. The tent took a bit is a battering but nothing that double pegging couldn’t solve! There was plenty of space between pitches and a real sense of privacy. The facilities were basic but beautifully clean at all times. Despite only having 3 showers, there were never queues. The view from the site was truly breathtaking and a great indicator of incoming weather! All in all this site is camping perfection for those who like a relaxed experience and can make the best of the variety of weather on offer. A boat trip around Ramsey Island was fabulous and a never to be forgotten experience. My 9 year old described it as the best experience of his entire life! St David’s is beautiful and full of things to discover. The butcher on Goat Street was brilliant - well priced, quality produce which was perfect for a camping bbq. Fish and chips with a cold glass of beer, whilst sitting on the patio at the back of the Dyfed Cafe was delicious. The Grove hotel provided an excellent evening meal. We walked to Whitesands bay on the coastal path, which took about 50 minutes. The bay is huge with enough space for everyone. Quite honestly this was the holiday of a lifetime. We will be back.
A beautiful place for the soul to unwind and the pace of life to slow to what it should be
This is an exceptionally beautiful site overlooking the sea. The owner is friendly and the whole site kept very clean. There aren’t separate washing up facilities but you choose a site like this for it’s near-to-nature appeal. I’m glad of its clean loos and hot showers! We chose a pitch tucked into a hedge as strong gusts were forecast on our first night, and though we did feel the force of the wind (after all we had chosen a site by the sea under canvas) it was so worth bearing with that first night. The following days showed it was the perfect spot for coastal walks or days at the beach. Rhosson Ganol Camping is the sort of place for your soul to unwind and your pace of life to slow to what it should be. Add to this a very friendly owner who was more than fair in part reimbursing members of the family couldn’t stay the whole length of time we had booked.
Really great few days at Rhosson Ganol
We have just returned from four nights at Rhosson Ganol and had a brilliant time. The campsite is beautifully located with great sea views - although it is worth bearing in mind that this can leave you quite exposed during south to south-westerly storms. As noted elsewhere, the facilities were basic but kept very clean and the showers were always hot! Our reserved pitch with electric hook-up was clearly flagged ready for our arrival. Wifi was also a welcome surprise and the connection was very good indeed. The seasonal bus service into St Davids was truly excellent with a bus every half hour - on one wet evening our bus driver even dropped us directly to our tent! My only very minor criticism would be that we never saw any of the site staff to have a friendly chat and pick up some information about the general area and places of interest. With no site office or point of contact this can make planning a stay a little more difficult. That being said, it was a great holiday - thank you Rhosson Ganol.
Wonderful view but facilities limited
As others have said.... the location is beautiful with outstanding views and a good space for children to play. The main problem for us was the impossibility of allowing the children to go to the toilet alone. I didn't read the reviews before hand so hadn't realised the facilities were remote from the actual field. It was also a little disappointing to have no reception or indication of where to pitch. Although on the one hand it can be nice to chose exactly where to go, it was full enough that we struggled to find a pitch large enough for our very large group. It is a lovely site for the views alone but personally I would go elsewhere in future for a more reasonable price with more accessible facilities.
Lovely 'basic' site
I've got to admit I was a little disappointed with our experience of staying here... there were some great points going for the site such as: Well maintained areas to camp Beautiful views and plenty of space (grass pitch without hookup area) But I thought it was a bit let down by... No advice beforehand on what to expect on arrival... no reception, no check in process, some pitches labelled as booked but not uniformly so after driving around for 20 mins without seeing our booked pitch we just had to pick a random emply place. The facilities are described as excellent...I wouldn't go that far. They did tend to be clean but still had spiders etc crawling around in them which freaked some of our party out. I know its farm camping etc. There weren't THAT many facilities considering they also seemed to be shared with the Rhosson camp site up the road too? For males there are two urinals, two toilets and 1 shower. I think the ladies had 2 showers. There was only 1 sink in each toilet block which mean that when people had used the loo and wanted to wash their hands, they couldnt get to the sink because of others brushing teeth etc. The toilet block as has been mentioned is across a road from the site! This is pretty poor really as it means that any younger kids just can't go to the loo on their own. As as has also been mentioned, nowhere at all to wash any plates or pots etc. This site would be amazing if they added another toilet block, ON SITE, with dish washing facilities. I think next time we'll research a little better as those things are, INHO and when travelling with kids, pretty essential.
Beautiful location, friendly owners but....
A stunning setting and extremely friendly and helpful hosts makes this a good site. However if you’re a tent wanting hook up, the space is pretty squashed in amongst the camper vans and so not the best space for kids to play. The facilities are basic as already mentioned but also very limited with only 3 showers in total and nowhere to wash your dishes. They are also across the road from the campsite, again not ideal for kids if you like to give them a bit more freedom when camping.
5 star location with severe weather warning
Rhosson Ganol is a truly wonderful camp site, in one of the most stunning locations imaginable. But campers must be advised of risk of exposure to severe winds. Our stay was cut short by severe - and unforecast - wind. Nearly all the many tent campers left the next morning, with many tents just dropped in the skips. Our tent survived, but we had to bail for the car in the middle of the night. We’re experienced campers, and I thought I had found a relatively protected spot. In one sense, the location itself calls out “be warned,” but I did not storm brace as severe winds were not forecast until the following night. But the site location is truly special, the shower and toilet are cleaned very regularly, and there is plenty of hot water. The owners do a good job too. If you enjoy old school camping, it doesn’t get better than this - but be prepared for severe winds and prepare accordingly!
Amazing views, peaceful site
This is a lovely no frills spot to camp and even over a sunny weekend in June it was quiet and peaceful with lots of space. The pitches are generous and mostly flat with hedges for shelter if the weather was poor, views are great out across the Ramsey Sound and the sunsets are fab, it's also an easy walk along the coastal path to Whitesands Bay for the beach. The toilet and shower block, which is a short walk across a country lane, is simple, clean and has loads of hot water. Loved it here and look forward to a return trip sometime.
Fantastic views, great facilities
We booked this campsite as a last minute getaway and we’re so glad we did! Stayed at the site for three nights and loved it. The views from the lower field where we were staying are spectacular, particularly at sunset and sunrise. The facilities are great – hot showers, clean toilets, everything you need. You can also park next to your tent, which is really useful. A short walk along the cliffs and you’re at the beach – highly recommend and will definitely stay again.
Everything you could want from a campsite- stupendous all round sea views right on the best coastal path in the uk - can walk to beaches town and around coast. Friendly quiet unfussy and well serviced site. Just returned as seasoned travellers from a four day stay at one of the best sites we have ever stayed on in a vw camper with dog! Perfect break thank you-we will be back!
Wow...... what a first experience!
We have just returned home from our first EVER camping trip. We stayed at Rhosson Ganol site and I was blown away by the views. Everyone was really friendly and we took our 5 month old pup who also enjoyed his first holiday. We will definitely be back.
I stayed here in mid summer 2017. Annoyingly, after several sunny weeks, it rained as soon as we arrived which was a real shame because I could see the campsite had everything for an amazing holiday but for us it was a bit of a washout weather wise. We still managed to do some swimming e.t.c. though and the campsite itself was perfect. Well priced, amazing views, amazing location, nothing too flashy or fancy but that's not the kind of camping we were after. Really friendly owners. Highly recommend. Next time we go we want sunnnn though!
Wonderful and truly amazing. View to die for, great, clean if basic facilities, friendly, peaceful and cheap. We were there for two nights at the start of our holiday and one at the end in a campervan. I wish I could live there, thank you for a much needed slice of peace and tranquility.
We've been going to Rhosson Ganol four or five times a year for nearly 30 years. Due to 'knees' we no longer tent but have a small caravan. We have such a lot of happy memories and now we take our grandchildren. Believe me, you have never seen stars until you have been to this corner of Wales. Breathe the fresh air, hear nothing but the sounds of nature and chill.
We spent one night here at the end of May. The site has a wonderful location with amazing views over the sea and Ramsey island. It was very quiet when we visited, the owner told us that it is busy at bank holiday weekends. short walk down the hill to St Justinian and the boats to Ramsey and around. Right on the coastal path too. We walked into St Davids and back for the evening, about 30 minutes, all along quiet lanes. Highly recommended, but if busy, the toilets and showers would, as the cool camping review suggests, be under pressure. They were well kept and effective for our stay.
