Stopped here for one night before catching the ferry the next day and found an impressive location, right on the cliff edge overlooking Fishguard and Goodwick harbour. Approach road very narrow and twisting though and would not want to meet other traffic on it as I don't remember seeing passing places.

Site is well laid out with beautiful flower beds between pitches. Our pitch was allocated to us on arrival as the site was fully booked but didn't feel cramped at all. Slide and swings for children overlooking the bay were great fun for our 3 children and they also loved the model railway inside. There was also a TV room and games room and the toilets and showers were numerous and immaculately clean. Also laundry room and washing up facilities very clean.

We found the site quite expensive and more than we are used to at 29 for a family of five, but the facilities are great and the site is very well managed so we could see why it cost that.

The bonus was a mobile fish and chip van on site for the night we stayed (Wed and sat Eve's in the summer months) which saved cooking for our one night camping. Great campsite if you will make use of the facilities, particularly for longer stays, but if like us you are used to simpler campsites or just need a quick stopover then may be not worth paying more for this one.

I could probably sum this site up in one word - WOW!

I have long wanted to visit this particular area and stumbled across Fishguard bay whilst searching for hours on the web looking for a suitable place to spend our holiday and it immediately appealed.

Yes, there is a narrow winding road to the site but to me, that just adds to the appeal, there were a few passing places (that we only needed to use once during our week long stay anyway) and the whole site has a lovely sense of seclusion. There is everything you need here and the facilities are top notch and spotlessly clean. Pitches are well spaced and you hardly notice the static vans that make up quite a large portion of the space but they are cleverly arranged and in no way a blot on the landscape.

The real jewel in the crown is the views, our pitch literally faced out onto the bay and the Irish Sea and was absolutely stunning and somehow never got boring!

Staff were very friendly and helpful in all aspects and gave great advice both over the phone and on arrival.

This site really does have a lovely laid-back attitude and I felt totally at ease (so much so that I didn't want to leave) its a great location to explore Pembrokeshire itself and we managed to squeeze in most of the coast from st David's to cardigan, it really is a beautiful county.

I think that everything else has already been said but personally I felt that one of the best things about the site is that it never felt busy. Everyone was friendly and we got chatting to some lovely people who shared the sentiment.

I would highly recommend this site and can't really find anything to flag up as a negative. Possibly a bit more pressure in the showers. There! I found one.

The owners clearly care a lot about the site and staff were constantly making the site spick and span which only added to the charm. Keep up the good work guys, we'll be coming again :)

We have been caravanning for 10 years and this is definitely the best site we have visited (and we have stayed at some lovely sites).

The pitches were well spaced out with flowerbeds and plenty of room for games etc.

The views were spectacular with the coast path coming right through the site. We are walking the Pembrokeshire coast and the shuttle bus service made getting to starting points easy. True the lane is narrow but we encountered no problems and it was worth it.

The owners were friendly and helpful and there was a pleasing lack of 'bossy notices' everywhere. Obviously they felt able to trust their visitors to behave with courtesy towards others and keep to the simple rules.

The loo blocks were just great, plenty of facilities, modern, clean and as good as a hotel.

This is the first time I have left a review but we felt it was well deserved. Sadly we will not be returning as we need to move on further around the coast. We booked for 4 nights and stayed for 8

Great site with fantastic views over the haven

We have a 7.2m touring caravan and getting to the site off the main road was scary, so if you have a large caravan or motor home then take caution. The road is single track and has stone walls and quite bendy so very hard to manoeuvre to get to the site and if you met anything coming the other way not sure what you would do luckily we did not!

The site is clean tidy toilet blocks very good clean and tidy and staff couldn't help enough.

We had a pitch up high with. Gorgeous view of the haven and in march we had lovely weather by coincidence.

Lots of places to visit Newport Pembs, Fishguard, Solva for the beach and coastal walks along the Pembrokeshire coastal path.

Great food in Newport Pembs just up the road if you fancy a meal out

I would recommend this site but take care re the single track road off the main road.

Excellent site - one of the best. Tremendous cliff-top situation, beautiful (and clean) facilities, friendly staff, and great views. We stayed on a very windy night, but the shelter provided by the wall/hedges in the main camp area (tent) was very effective at keeping us sheltered.

The Puffin Pantry mobile fish and chips (two nights a week at time of writing) provide some of the best fish and chips you will get anywhere.

Can't fault any of it! I just wish more sites were like this.

Nice site in a lovely position. Very useful shop and well stocked.

Beware the advice to arrive in the afternoon is for a reason, the access road is a single track with no passing places.

If you are in a motorhome this may not be the site to use as once you are there you are stuck.

We had a small concrete pitch surrounded by tents. The site states 6 metres between pitches, does not happen we had tents both sides within 2 metres of us.

They state dogs must be kept on a lead, but this did not happen dogs roamed everywhere with no policing by the owners.

Management response: The pitch that is mentioned is actually a pleasant pitch that many of our regular motor caravanners specifically ask for. We have attached two pictures of it which show its location on the park.

There are tent pitches each side of the pitch, as can be seen in the pictures. We work hard to maintain a six metre gap between tents and/or motor caravans. Customers on arrival are given an information leaflet stating the gap between tents etc. And we regularly check to ensure this gap is maintained. All pitches are marked out to help ensure the gap is adhered to.

The access road is quite narrow. It is a council adopted road and does have several passing places, some of which are capable of allowing two motor caravans to pass each other. Indeed, this access road enables 40' x 12' static holiday caravans to come down to the park on caravan transporters. Each year we have many motor caravanners who return to the park, some have been here on several occasions over a number of years.

We have a strict 'dogs on a lead' policy on the park and are quick to talk to any dog owners should they not adhere to this. Our reception is manned from 8:00am to 8:00pm this time of year (late July and August) and a report of any dog roaming would be dealt with quickly.
