We loved our stay at this campsite. It is right on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path which attracted it to us. The site was peaceful and clean and the views were absolutely stunning. There was no internet connection near our pitch but we found that extra relaxing. It is a shame that the toilet and shower block was so far away from our pitch. If there were toilets nearer it would be one of our favourite campsites in Wales.
Campsite is in a really great location, right on the coastal path and within easy walking distance to a nearby beach. Toilets and showers clean and hot but quite a walk away from the pitches, quite tricky when you have young children. Some people were riding their bikes to the toilet block which is great idea if you plan to take them. Sunsets were amazing and we had a fantastic view from our pitch.
This is one of the calmest campsites we’ve been to. A great location with stunning views. We had great weather and went to some fabulous beaches near by. Shower facilities good & clean. Highly recommend.
Fantastic views and facilities
The views are stunning in most directions and we had the best sunset every night. We stayed in a tent in the top field and had a very spacious pitch with a picnic bench from which we enjoyed meals and watching the impressive sunset. The new shower block is fab, warm and cleaned regularly. The room with freezer facilities and washing up is a bit tight in the evening but otherwise I could not fault the campsite. It is a short walk to the little sandy cove which we strolled down to on the first evening and is a few minutes walk from the coastal path. Easy to get into St davids where there are pubs and shops. We had an amazing time at Rhosson Ganol and will hopefully get to visit again next year! 😀
Ecllent location and amenities
When you book a campsite unseen you never know what you will find. I guess that adds to the anticipation but its a joy to find the reality living up to the hype! Amazing views of the sea at this campsite. The location of our pitch was just like the photos advertised! The new shower/wash/amenities is large and rarely crowded. The Griffith's family seem to have thought if everything. We went on an amazing boat trip, spotting dolphins and porpoises, that we caught just at the bottom of the hill at St Justinian's and St. Davids is a short car ride away - but you can walk. We also had a wonderful day's walking around the head of the promontory discovering amazing wildflowers and surprising the odd basking seal. A wonderful week of de-stressing close to nature. We shall be back!
Campsite has excellent shower block, laundry facilities etc. Only steps away from the coastal path, St Justinians and a 10 minute walk to a beach. The owner David is incredibly friendly and helpful.
The views from this campsite are amazing and make even a rainy day seem brighter. The facilities were spotlessly clean, a great relief for a group who aren’t experienced campers! We were a big group of 11 people and the two pitches we booked gave us plenty of space to setup comfortably. Only thing to consider when staying here is the lack of local takeaways/ food options, with St Davids being the local city but takeaways closing early. As long as you plan your evening meals, unlike we did, this campsite will not disappoint. The staff here were also very helpful and friendly when helping with any queries before arriving. We’d love to stay again and have already recommended to friends.
Puppies first adventure!
Lovely windy campsite, only to be expected with the views of Ramsey Island and the most terrific cliff walks. Be prepared for a little trek to the facilities but they are well worth it, lovely and clean with super hot showers. Postcode leads you to the wrong campsite, but it’s just over the hill. If you want to take advantage of the boat trips they leave from the lifeboat station at the bottom of the hill, five minute walk. Loki loved it will definitely be back.
Little gem of a campsite
Cracking campsite with spectacular views over Ramsey island and beyond, made even more amazing at sunset. Top notch toilet/shower block that the owner was always flat out keeping clean. Little things like this make the difference. A bit exposed to the wind but It’s part-and-parcel of a coastal campsite. Will definitely be coming back.
Stunning views from a lovely campsite
We had a lovely time at Rhosson Ganol. The location, right on the coast was beautiful - the only downside is that it's a bit exposed in very windy weather, but that's the price you pay for such stunning views. The sunset was amazing and the night sky was also very impressive. The facilities are very clean and everything works well. It is a bit of a walk to the shower & toilet block from some of the pitches but that didn't bother us. The coastal path is on the doorstep and there are stunning walks along the coast in both directions. The campsite was quiet but friendly and a very relaxing place to be. We would definitely return.
We stayed recently on an electric grass pitch with 3 young children and 2 dogs. The campsite itself has a nice relaxed feel, with beautiful views (very windy). The layout I feel is better suited to older families, there was not much space for the little ones to run around with a football, and the shower block is across a road. Although not a very busy one.
Relaxed campervan experience
We were gifted the most amazing sunsets over the water each evening. A friendly campsite, clean facilities and walking distance to St David's. The coastal walks were stunning and we had lovely weather.
Great views, good facilities
Lovely view from the campsite with excellent access to the coastal path. Windy as you would expect from coastal campsite. Great facilities - clean and modern - but a bit of a walk from some of the pitches.
Amazing location, relaxed feel.
Amazing location with beautiful views out over Ramsey sound (quite exposed when the wind picks up!). Modern wash house, never had to queue for a shower always plenty of hot water. Very relaxed feel in terms of where to pitch your tent, no interference from the owners although this was a negative for us on our last night when at 11:30 I had to get up and ask our neighbours to turn off their music (they were having a loud party…) No real WiFi or phone signal if this is something you care about.
Fantastic 4 nights away
Wonderful peaceful campsite in an amazing setting. Stunning views and about 1.5 miles from St David’s. Beautiful coastal walks with several days Sandy beaches within walking distance. Clean shower/toilet block with plenty of hot water. Would stay again and recommend.
Lovely clean and family friendly site with beautiful views and good facilities in a separate field which requires you to cross a road. Great walks and close to St Davids. Would be perfect if you could get a visiting shop maybe twice a week or perhaps a fast food van one evening.
A very nice campsite
A nice place to camp. A good site with lots of space. The toilet shower and washing up block was very clean. Plenty of hot water. Would stay there again.
Super campsites, good facilities, will be back.
Very nice place
This is a great campsite, had very friendly people, and outstanding facilities. It is right next to a beach, and a boathouse for tours around neighbouring islands. It wasn’t too advanced, no shop, but there is another campsite shop nearby, just along the coastal path next to the boathouses. The facilities are very clean. I would come here again!
Absolutely stunning view from the campsite, and generous pitch size (we had a van and a large bell tent no problem). Toilets and showers recently revamped with a nice washing up area. Good pressure hot water. Only complaint is there are only 2 female showers for the site, would recommend avoiding popular shower times in summer or you’ll be queuing!
We love it here!
Second time visiting in the past month or so. It really is a fab campsite! The view from the site is stunning, the shower/toilets are kept nice and clean. I’ve found it’s quiet compared to some sites. Some real gems within walking distance along the coastal path too!
Perfect location and great facilities
Perfect location with views of to Ramsey and Whitesands bay. 20 minute walk to the Porthsulet beach or 30minutes to Whitesands. Short drive to St David's and the local beaches. Lovely toilet and shower block regularly cleaned. If you have a pitch with electricity you also have a tap on the pitch which is very handy. Definately returning!
Almost don't want to say how nice it is incase it gets too popular
This was our fist Wales trip, and somehow we managed to book the perfect campsite (we believe). Facilities are clean, and it has a really nice family atmosphere, most people who went there seemed to have been respectful of the place and its surroundings. Nestled in-between trails and private family beaches, just a short drive up to St. Davids. If you do go, I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
Large spacious plots with amazing views over the sea to Ramsey island. We booked for 2 weeks and were so pleased we had. Brand new toilet/shower block with washing up area. Beautiful coastal walks, bike rides, boats to the island, kayaking, just a few of the things we did during our stay at Rhosson Ganol. Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday. P.s. I forgot to mention the sunsets . . . How could I forget the most amazing sunsets!!
Stunning campsite with top facilities
Location: the location of this campsite is perfect. Coastal path a couple of minutes away, as with the bus stop. Views: stunning views of the sea and sunset. Really really beautiful. Facilities: it has everything we need, and everything is well maintained, clean and modern. Toilets are super clean. Showers are hot and pressure is amazing. Cleaning dishes area is great, with sockets for charging phones.
Perfect spot 👌👌
Very large pitches, good atmosphere all round 10/10 can’t wait to visit again
Beautiful Campsite, Great Location, Brilliant Facilities
Stayed for a week with three friends at Rhosson Ganol and had a absolutely brilliant time. The pitch was a good size and had a wonderful view of the sea and Ramsey Island. Views in the early morning and at sunset were spectacular. Owners very relaxed, found our pitch with our name on it and simply popped our tents up, no nonsense. Facilities over the road were new and to a good standard, and have exactly what you need - hot showers, washing up facilities and phone charging (handy for us on a non-electric pitch). They also were cleaned regularly. The location of the site was perfect, right next to the coastal path, with walks to Whitesands, Carn Llidi and St Davids, and a short drive away from other locations such as Abereiddy and Porthgain. Site had a calm and friendly atmosphere which was perfect. At the very reasonable price per night, this is one of the best campsites in the area, would highly recommend.
One of the best, we will return!
This is a great location for active, fuss free holidays- just a hop down to the coast path for walking/running and there is a great network of quiet lanes and bridleways for cycling. Our favourite was the route from the campsite to whitesands beach past the golf course. Great coastal views!! Campsite facilities are modern and clean and ideal for our (childfree) needs, the wetsuit trough (wash) was particularly handy. Camping field non-electric pitches are very spacious and the bracken hedge rows provide good protection if it's breezy. Westerly view and sunsets are AMAZING if you're lucky with the weather. We wouldn't hesitate to book again. Only slight downside is the distance between the camping field and the loo block. St Davids food recommendations: Oriel y Parc cafe for lunch and Grain pizza for dinner (arrive before 6:30, they don't currently take bookings or takeaway. The queue gets very long, very quickly- and with good reason!). These are within a cycle ride (short steep hill into St Davids) or short drive.
Most beautiful campsite!!!
Unable to go abroad during our first uni summer, we were looking for campsites that would take groups. Not only did Rhosson Ganol provide this, they guaranteed a beyond-lovely holiday vacation. Despite the weather we had a lovely time, especially waking up to the wonderful coastal view of the sea and Ramsey Island - a boat trip around the island is essential for seeing incredible wildlife and natural sights, as well as learning some deep and fascinating history. We will 100% be coming again!!!
Organised; pitches are numbered and set - you'll find your name tagged onto the numbered pitch pole. Basic and clean facilities if a bit of a walk there. Friendly management on the rare occasion we saw any. Beautiful scenery and a good location with 5 minutes down to coastal path by rocky shore and 20 minutes walk (5 minutes with car) into St Davids. Quiet with campers being all friendly and considerate; no large young groups. Personally i prefer Celtic Camping a few hours walk north along the coastal path. I find its location better with easier walking distance to Porthgain for lunch and the facilities one notch up. On the other hand; Rhosson Ganol might suit you better if you can't stand midnight tipsy laughters from bonfire crowds next door or if you'd like to be closer to St Davids.
Such a lovely, peaceful site with amazing views across to Ramsey Island. We had a problem on arrival but within a short space of time, David and his father came to our rescue. Our grateful thanks. We didn't use the shower block as it was quite a distance and we had our own facilities but it was very clean and we noticed a fridge and freezer for Campers. The location is to die for and we were quite happy looking at that view. Well recommended.
Stunning views and lovely friendly site
We loved our three days at Rhosson Ganol. We had a pitch overlooking the sea and Ramsey Island - the best view of any campsite we’ve been to. The site was quiet and beautifully maintained. David Griffiths was welcoming and helpful. The showers were good and hot and the rest of the facilities clean and new. Smart campers (not us!) brought bikes with them since the facilities are quite a distance from some of the further pitches. The cliff walking and wildlife are spectacular. We will definitely be visiting again.
Such stunning views
On arrival we couldn’t believe the views. Handy for the coast path, only half hour walk from st David’s. Well maintained site with lovely new shower block. Only downsides were the distance to the shower block from our pitch (5 min walk) and the lack of WiFi or phone signal at our far end of the site. However, these were minor niggles and we would certainly return.
Great Views, Great Facilities
This is a fantastic campsite. The pitches are well spaced, and the supplied water and electricity is really useful. Toilet and washing facilities are new and work really well. There’s even wetsuit washing and hanging! The views from the site are great, and the arrangement of the site is such that the views aren’t obstructed by other pitches. We felt safe letting the kids run around, and found it a good launchpad for visiting nearby St David’s and Porthgain.
Really lovely spot. Great location, 5 min walk from the coastal path and the lifeboat station and about 25ish minutes walk into St David's. The site itself is basic but that's all you need if you're looking for an escape. Enjoyed so much I've already booked to come back :)
Absolutly Stunning Site with Excellent facilities
We have just returned from staying here Our stay has been absolutely fabulous. Incredible views excellent shower and toilet block . Owners very friendly and helpful. Will definatly be back
Superb location overlooking Ramsay Sound, with beautiful sunsets. Good facilities, well maintained. Porthselau beach, a short walk away, is wonderful. Great bus service into St David, and taxis back if you stay too late at the Farmers. Owner couldn’t be more helpful. We loved it so much we stayed 2 days longer than planned.
Lovely site with amazing views
Arrived and read the notice board and found our pitch which also had a big blue tag on it with our name and outfit on so as I have no problem reading a site map on the notice board and reading the blue tag didn’t need anyone to physically point to where we needed to be. Didn’t see any of the owners during our stay which was fine by me and family who were staying with us on the pitch next to us as everything was perfect. You can see exactly where you can pitch if you can count and don’t encroach past the next numbered pitch. St.David’s is close by but we walked the coastal path which is a longer route and terrain a bit rugged but great views. We used our own toilet/shower but did pop in as we were leaving to quickly use loo before we departed and they looked new, fresh and clean. First time we have not used hook up on a site because we wanted to stay on the front looking out to sea and yes it was a little breezy but we fully expected it as your camping on the coast so your not going to get any shielding but the view more than made up for it and the sunsets were amazing. I will definitely return as it was such a lovely well kept site in a perfect location.
We stayed here as a two couple group in our VW Campers on a grass pitch without services looking out to sea. The location was fantastic, we walked the coastal path one day along with walking into St David’s and another day we caught the local shuttle bus to St David’s and then another bus to Solan. The site was just what we needed, the shower facilities looked very new and were very clean although we only popped in there to use the loo before leaving as we had our own toilet and shower facilities. Our only comment would be that a water tap for those not on service pitches would have been very welcome.
We were camped on pitch 21 one of the furthest from the amenity block but this meant we had tonnes of space and unrivalled views! The new shower block was brilliant, lovely hot water and very clean. realistically a 5 minute walk from the tent so really not that bad! If you have a wind break bring it! when it's windy its realllllly windy! Stunning walks in both directions along the coastal path and we walked into St David too several times, the road is quite enough. Fully recommend The Bishops pub, great 'sun trap' pub garden and very dog friendly. I can't fault this campsite! The number of caravans that park up for the whole summer is testament in itself. We will return :-)
This was without a doubt the best view from a campsite I have ever stayed at, the site was very clean, the toilet and shower block were exceptionally clean and well looked after. Would 100% stay again!
We loved this place.....the views were stunning, the facilities really clean and such easy access to the coast path. The owner was really friendly and could not have been more accommodating when we arrived a night early and managed to fit us in. Would definitely recommend and would definitely return. Thank you!
We spent three nights at Rhosson Ganol in our tent. The perfect escape, wonderful setting with outstanding views and sunsets. Booking was easy, location and the site itself were fantastic. Super clean facilities! Only about 1.5 miles from the city centre, it was perfect distance to be close to shops, pubs and restaurants. Thank you so much, I'll definitely be back!
Perfect half term break!
This site is a gem - the setting is superb with lovely views on all sides, and the sunsets were spectacular whilst we were there. As it's right on the coastal path, we parked the van and didn't move it again all week - perfect! It's a simple set up - the facilities are in an adjacent field with a short walk to get there, but they're modern, clean and better than most we've seen. We had an issue with the electricity tripping out, and the owner was on hand almost immediately to fix it once we let them know. Couldn't fault it - a great place and we hope to return again soon!
Noisy, sleepless nights
We had a terrible weekend at Rhosson Ganol and ended up leaving early. Initially we rang to check whether there was any thing we should know about regarding covid restrictions/regulations etc. There was no answer so I left a message with my phone number but there was no call back. On arrival the pitch allocations were posted up on a board with no contact details for owners or their representatives. The pitches were not delineated apart from by a peg with the number. No indication of where each starrted or ended. This lead to some consternation on the second day of our stay where another camper was concerned that another of their party would not fit between our tent and the next. There was no obvious contact to check with. There was a large party staying at the same time, the first night they were very talking deafeningly loudly until gone midnight. With no obvious way to complain I was forced to confront them myself. The second night was the same, except worse, they pulled out a guitar and one of their group was singing awful songs until gone midnight. I'm a veteran of the Reading festival, Glastonbury and other festivals and the noise level was far beyond anything I've experienced at those. We couldn't face another night of it and with nowhere to complain we left the next day. I drove home after having very little sleep and now I'm back at work feeling worse than I did before I went on holiday. I will never go back again.
Terrible,nobody to greet us and direct us to our camping pitch we had to work it out ourselves, the owners of the site nowhere to be seen.very windy on arrival,even worse by the morning with tents getting blown in,ourselves and others packed up and headed home after one sleepless night.this site is very near the sea and open to the elements, with nowhere to pitch your tent and shelter it from the wind,this site is only really suitable for camper Van's and caravans, as it is too open to the elements for tents,maybe this should be mentioned in the advertising for this site,a wasted 230 mile trip,with a site fee of £125,and fuel costs of £60 plus a ruined holiday.
Glorious star filled sky and incredible views
We stayed a couple of nights on the site. It’s well laid out with good facilities - but it’s more a low impact site than all mode cons. The real attraction is the views, the tranquility and the dark night skies. It’s fairly close to st David’s and there’s plenty to do nearby. Or just do nothing. The owners are lovely too. I wouldn’t hesitate to return.
Right from the get go, our stay at Rhosson Ganol was brilliant. Booking was easy, location and the site itself were fantastic. Only about 1.5 miles from the city centre, it was perfect distance to be conveniently close to shops, pubs and restaurants but also feel like you're far enough to enjoy sea views and some peace and quiet. The site and facilities were super clean - shower has a lot of pressure (would go as far as saying it was almost better than my shower at home!). Can't fault the place at all - wish we could have stayed longer! Thanks so much, I'll definitely be back!
The Perfect Escape
The perfect escape, wonderful setting with outstanding views and sunsets. Clean, modern facilities and the owner Dave was very helpful. We loved it and hope to return soon.
Stunning location with easy access to the coastal path
We spent three nights at Rhosson Ganol in our campervan, overlooking the coast and Ramsey Island. It was quiet and peaceful, but it was the end of September. The site is well cared for and the facilities block is very good. We spent our time walking the coastal paths and enjoying the views. We walked into St Davids, about a forty minute walk. The van never moved all the time we were there. At this time of year I cannot think of a better place to park your van for a few nights. Highly recommended.
Lovley stay at Rhosson Ganol
Really enjoyed our stay at this campsite, even though it was quite windswept the day we arrived the campsite was very level & flat. We stayed in a campervan with awning. Beautiful coastal walk from the campsite to Porthclais, saw some seals online the way then onto St Davids and walked back to campsite via the quiet road. Lifeboat Station just 5 minutes walk down the road. Not very clear where to go on arrival but we soon worked it out when pitching up, finding the post with blue tag with our name on. The brand new Toilet & Shower Block a bit of a walk on the opposite side of the road but that was fine & kept very clean & really warm inside. Always plenty of hand sanitiser available. Nice quiet campsite
Great views and camping spot
Amazing views of the sound and location! A great spot to start of walks along the Pembrokeshire coastline. White sands is a short walk along the coast. Shower and toilet block is brand new, kept very clean throughout our stay. Clear rules around Covid, along with lots of access to alcohol soap dispensers on site. Tape water is also super tasty too!
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.
