 Lovely site but.

A) The owner never smiles and can be very rude when asserting her authority, like the cold wind of Siberia. She never days Hello.

B) No where for children to play, an accident waiting to happen, as all children play on the roads

C) Gipsy campers park for nothing on the public car park just outside the site but use the toilet facilities of the Caravan park for free.

D) The beach is a 500 yard walk down a very steep path.

E) how on earth the Camp site won an award this year because all pitches on on a steep Hill, and exposed to winds that often destroy the Tents and awnings attached to the caravans.

F) Access to the site is down 3/4 mile single track road, a nightmare If your are towing a Caravan and another is heading towards you. Many caravanners leave in a convoy so forcing other caravanners to reverse back up the Hill.

 Been visiting this site for 5 years and it remains our most preferred site.

For those who have yet to visit you are missing a view that has to be experienced and the proximity to the Pembrokeshire coast path is the icing on the cake. Sunsets are spectacular and the night sky is something else.

Facilities and staff are lovely and the site fairly well set out but some pitches a bit too close.

Very busy and somewhat noisy in peak season, but do what we do and go out of season.

Narrow approach lane from main road and a tight right hand bend into site mean that you don't want to meet anything coming the other way.

Once pitched and settled leave your car and take the short walk into St Davids.

 This is the 3rd time me and my flower and the two dogs have stayed at this site and every time we love it! First two, the sun shone (which aways makes it better), 3rd time rain and wind!

It commands great views over the sea, great walk around the coast into St. Davids (and the pubs).

The site is lovely and clean, piping hot water in the shower block and the staff at reception are really friendly. Its a lovely open site, we will be returning!

Reviewer: Motorhometrips 22 reviews from this member

 This is a superb site. We received a friendly welcome and they were perfectly happy for me to look over the site and choose our pitch, All pitches appear to have excellent seaviews and the one we chose, it appeared that we were nearly on the coastal path.

Sanitary facilities are good and kept clean and disabled access appears reasonable. There is a dedicated motorhome service point which always receives a plus from me. For these facilities, 18 for EHU was reasonable and the high season premium is not excessive.

The coastal path is a short stroll away and St Davids is a 25 minute walk, along the coastal path route, rather than the road, which you enter the site. St Davids is a delightful town with plenty of places to eat and a supermarket. A visit to the Bishop's Palace is a must as you are easily transported, by imagination back into history. There are superb coastal walks and additionally there are reasonable bus services, if you only want to walk one way. The Puffin bus and an hourly regular bus runs to Solva and Newgale whilst the Coaster runs an hourly service from town to Whitesands. (more regular in peak season)

The last 1/2 mile of the road to the site is single track but as long as you take it steady there should be no problem and there are opportunities to pass as well.

 Excellent site on the outskirts of St. Davids, short walk into town and right on the coast path so you can go one way one day and the other the next so ideal for walking. Beach is very close too.

Two shower blocks on site depending where you are pitched, we were in the second field where the pitches for the campervans is levelled out of a slope (and hardstanding) so you have a tiered affair, these are at an angle to the coast so once a van parked next to us we had to sit at the front or back of the van for a view, no great hardship at all. Shower block was very clean, good sized shower cubicles.

The greatest attention to detail - unlike many many campsites you go to the showers had a proper sized seat in there for your clothes and plenty of hooks. Stupid little thing really but makes showering that much easier and gives you an idea of the little details that they have done to make the place comfortable to stay at.

Dogs are not allowed for most of the year but they were when we went at the beginning of September, I guess the long term caravanners know that dogs arent allowed but we got tired of having to explain they were at that time of year since there was an evident anti dog feeling from those people (not the site owners who have provided a dog walking area, not that this is needed with the coast path near by), but hey ho, that's their problem.

Not the cheapest site but you certainly get good value for money with regards facilities and location.

 The site is excellent. Great location, great views from our pitch and also the organic shop that serves hot croissants/pan au chocolates when it opens at 9. 00.

The road down to the site is a single track which we fortunately didn't meet anything coming teh other way whilst arriving or leaving.

St David's is an easy walk in and the cafe Sound does an excellent Tapas.

If you have an awning take wind straps.

The only problem we found and it is a big one is that the bay itself attracted a lot of rubbish opposite a shipping lane which was a shame as it had great waves for boarding. One day I had to remove a wheel (minus tyre) and the following day a large jerry can and a pink rubber glove.

The beaches around by whitesands are cleaner (saw seals around there) and much better and so we stopped using the bay which was one of the main reasons that had attracted us to the site in the first place.

 This is a wonderful site. We absolutely loved it! Peaceful, beautiful views, great facilities and within walking distance of beautiful St Davids.

Pitches are a generous size and all have fantastic views out to sea. Toilets/showers are a good size, immaculately clean and with plenty of (free) hot water.

There is direct access to the Pembrokeshire Coast path with some wonderful walks in either direction - remember to keep your eye out for porpoise and seals. There is also a fantastic beach within two minutes of the site albeit via a relatively steep path - worth the small amount of effort required.

St Davids is about a 10 to 15 minute walk away and is extremely pretty with lots of pubs and eateries - as well as the gorgeous cathedral.

Our children are grown up so I didn't notice if there was a play area but I think kids would love it. There is a small dog walk but given there is a dog friendly beach and coast path a minute or so away the size wasn't an issue.

All in all a really fabulous site - we have booked a return visit!

 We had 5 Nights at Caerfai Bay touring park, Nr St Davids, we enjoyed every minute of it, we were in field one, on washed gravel hard standing, with fresh water and drainage close to the pitch, stunning views from our pitch.

As mentioned by other visitors to the site, it has good facilities, a wee gem of a site and will come back in the future.

We had two days of heavy rain and gales, but still managed down to the beach and local farm shop.

 Unfortunately, our stay was cut short at Caerfai Bay due to the unfortunate British weather.

Site is beautiful, views are stunning. We were pleased with our pitch (we were in Field 3).

The shower block/washing facility were very clean and we never had to queue for showers. There are 2 in the female toilets and there are also 4 family rooms. The water was hot when I used the showers.

The only downside was that the hot water for the dishwashing was heated by solar panels and it was cold. We were told by another camper that they had been there a week, and they hadn't known the water to be hot yet.

I will definitely go back to Caerfai Bay - we were gutted we had to leave early, but it was better to be safe than sorry.

 What more can I say other than a great, fantastic site overlooking the sea from the cliff tops.

We were blessed with glorious weather for the two days we were there so made the most of it. We cycled to Whitesands bay, pretty easy except for the last bit when you leave which is all uphill then reasonably level for the main part of the journey.

It is a short, reasonably non steep walk down the path to the beach which is a tiny cove ideal for kids to rock pool and explore.

The coastal walk goes from this location too all along the Pembrokeshire coast and affords stunning views but make sure you have a head for heights, which I do not!

Overall, all facilities were spot on. Modern, clean, spacious and warm showers.

Easy walk or cycle into St Davids city which is lovely with just the right amount of bars and places to eat. Small galleries are dotted around with local artist and craft ware although in one of them, the front room of a house the name escapes me, when the owner realised I was a painter too, the mood changed from welcome to hurry off out as I know you are not going to buy! to be fair, it was the artists wife and I am sure the artist would have been more chatty and interested as us artists do like to share! it was a shame as the work was stunning but expensive, and after at least half a dozen mentions of 'they have to pay the mortgage' we left a little jaded!

Anyway, I ramble on.

Great site, great pitches all with a view and lovely location with easy access to organic shops etc. What more can you want?
