Date of Visit: August 2009 Unit:  Touring Caravan
Reviewer: Footpather 5 reviews from this member

 The first thing that hits you on this site are the amazing views of the sea. The staff were warm and friendly. The pitches were well marked and well looked after. Ours was on gravel but some are on grass. The sign outside the site said it was full but there was masses of room still so they don't try packing you in like sardines to maximise their profit.

There are good clean toilets, showers and family amenities. There is also the usual dishwashing areas and additional veg prep room. Nice to also have a wetsuit washing room. Near the office there was also a laundry room with two washers and two dryers and a sink. Other facilities included a 'takeaway' that was open for breakfasts, packed lunches and evening meals. The farm shop slightly up the road from the site had all the basics plus some tasty treats.

The bay was down a steep path but well worth it, small but perfectly formed. It was safe for body boarding but spectacular when the sea was in and rough.

We enjoyed a couple of really good meals at The Grove which is situated at the top of the Caerfai Bay Road. Childrens menu was only £2.99.

I would definitely return here as there was little to fault.

 I had mixed feelings about this site. Firstly, the 3/4 mile narrow road to the actual site was very nerve racking. Towing a large unit, we were praying we were not going to see another vehicle come towards us, unfortunately we did but luckily it was a 4x4 so he had to reverse back. There is a 1/4 mile stretch where if 2 caravans meet you are stuffed, nightmare scenario we didn't get luckily. The views from any pitch on the site were fantastic. What spoilt it for me was the numerous statics. Toilet facilities were average. The money we paid for the pitch per night I would have expected higher quality and standard. One positive was how quiet the site was. One final thing that put us off was the 'Farmyard ' smells. 

Date of Visit: August 2009 Unit:  Trailer Tent
Reviewer: Azpluk 3 reviews from this member

 This is one of the most beautiful locations we have ever camped. From our tent we just looked over fields out to sea. At night we could see the lights on the tankers waiting to come into port.

The walk down to the bay itself is steep, but not too bad. The bay is breathtakingly lovely when the tide is out a vast expanse of sand and rocks pools is exposed. It is so gently sloping that it is lovely for children to swim in. One word of caution, the tide comes in very very quickly and I would advise against exploring the rocks once the tide as turned as it is very easy to get completely cut off. We witnessed this happen the 1st day we were there to 3 children and the Lifeboat had to be called out. Tide times are published in the free Pembrokeshire magazine available from the site office and tourist info.

Facilities were OK. Site was busy but never had to wait for shower/toilet although at times the water was not quite as hot as I like it! Washing up space was a bit tight and we did have to wait on a few occassions.

When the camping field was full there was no large areas for the children to play in, but pitches are generous and campers tolerant of footballs etc.

10-15min walk up the road into St Davids, which does have a supermarket, find it if you can! Fish and chip shop not much cop, sorry. We took a 20min drive out to 'Somethings Cooking' which is recommended by Rick Stein and it was the most delicious fish and chips I have ever eaten.

The only downside to the camp was the wind. We endured gale force 8, gusting stronger and started to see damage to our tent. After 3 nights of this, we had to cut our 12 night holiday short. Because our trailer tent had been damaged we were given a refund for the remaining nights, which we weren't expecting. We did have 3 days that were beautiful, but just be warned.It is very windy up there!

 This was a site to return to, great scenery, dramatic walks along the cliffs, pleasant open pitches separate from caravans and statics so retaining a really good atmosphere. Facilities were very clean, management helpful. The only criticism was the lack of a freezer for cooling ice packs. Short walk into St Davids and a slightly longer walk to Solva along the cliff tops. Very useful farm produce.

 The photo certainly doesn't disappoint. When you arrive at the Site the view is truly amazing, just as the photo promises. It is definitely worth driving down the narrow lane to get to the campsite. We (family 2 adults, 2 children) were very happy with the site. We have a tent so were initially worried about how busy/noisy it would be during peak time, but needn't have. The campsite has strict rules about noise which people adhered to so we weren't disturbed at all and the pitches are very generous so you didn't feel that you were on top of anyone. The facilities were excellent there are ample family rooms, two of which have small baths which made our lives much easier as one of our children hates showers. There's lots to do in the surrounding areas and with the beach 5 mins walk away the children were never bored. You can walk to St Davids, but there is also a bus available at the top of the road, opposite the Tourist Information Office which would probably take about 10 - 15 mins to walk. In all the site is ideally positioned for people who want to explore and/or spend time at the beach neither of which requires a car to do so. The staff are friendly and helpful and in all would have no hesitation in recommending the site.

Reviewer: Jaclmur 4 reviews from this member

 This is just the most wonderful touring park. We have been twice now and would definitely go back again. The facilities are excellent. The shower/bathing facilities cater for all needs with either a shower, bath or disabled shower in each cubicle along with a sink and toilet. Even if the site was full, there was no waiting for a cubicle.

The views across the bay are breathtaking, and all the pitches have sea views. There is a small bay close by (albeit with a short but quite steep walk to it). The coast path has excellent walking right from the site.

It is a short walk into St Davids, with a pub-stop half way.

The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Dogs are welcome, and many of the pubs in St Davids are dog-friendly.

I would highly recommend this site.

 Me My husband and our 2 boys have just returned from Caerfai Bay after staying 8 nights.

We arrived to glorious sunshine and amazing views My husband was very pleased with my choice which was a good start.

Our pitch was quite central in field 3 and on a slight slope but with such amazing views that was a small price to pay.

It is a lovely walk up the lane into St Davids with all the amenities you could want and a great surf shop Ma Simes which my boys loved.

The bay itself can be a bit sea weedy first thing but soon clears and then the sea is lovely and a great place for rocky pooling.

White sands and Newgale Beaches are brilliant loads of parking and only £2/£3 per day great for body boarding, surfing and lovely flat sands for playing or lazying on.

The coastal walks are great and very accessible from the campsite,maps available from St Davids Tourist info at top of the lane for only 50p each bargain.

Loads to to in the area so you won't run out of ideas if you don't get blessed with good weather.

We has fantastic weather during the day bar 1 when it rained but had 2 very,very windy nights so good tents and firm pegging down is highly recommended incase you should encounter a breeze!

We all had an amazing time and are definitely returning next year with in laws nieces and nephews.

Overall the site has great facilities Wetsuit wash rooms,Take away, Laundrette and good pot washing facilities.Showers can be a little cool if you go at busy times but they are clean and I never had to wait to use either the shower or the toilet.

A fantastic site with fantastic views in a fantastic area.

Reviewer: Steve Fox 2 reviews from this member

 I agree with all the comments that have been made. The views are to die for and the charges are reasonable, but there is a price to pay: the access road is very narrow as you approach the site and although there are passing places, as a previous reviewer has commented, they are not particularly wide if you encounter another motorhome coming in the opposite direction.
The second problem is that if you are in field two, it is quite a long trek to empty your chemical toilet - not great if it is pouring with rain and there's a howling gale. Finally, when I was there, the site was quite crowded and as a result I had to queue for the loos, showers and washing-up facilities at various times.
Having said all that, I have to be fair and repeat that the views are stunning, the pricing fair, the welcome friendly and the location very convenient for the delightful city of St David's. The facilities were very clean too, despite all the traffic.

 Caerfai Bay, one of the loveliest sites we have stayed on, the view’s are amazing over looking St Bride’s bay. The site is well kept, good facilities plenty of hot water. The pitches have strict rules on where you pitch, so plenty of room between, no over crowding, and very quiet.

The beech is a secluded cove it’s quite a steep walk down but well worth it, and easy access to the coastal path, with the most dramatic coast line, aqua green sea, bright blue sky, coves and little islands, views that would beat any Greece island hands down!

St David’s is within easy walking distance, either up the country road or via the coastal path, plenty of shops including supermarket. Also a really good coffee shop with the yummiest ice creams (just past police station on way down to cathedral)

The Framers Arms serves good food, and do try its sister pub ‘sloop inn’ highly recommended. And if you what really excellence food, try the Swan @ Little Haven, what a find, the best meal we had all year (not just the holiday)

Additionally most pubs are dog friendly so bonus in the hot weather, and boy was it hot, definitely staycation for us

Reviewer: Snoopy33 2 reviews from this member

 We were disappointed by this site. It occupies a lovely position with stunning views but the site was unkempt - the grass hadn't been cut and there were weeds everywhere.

Upon arrival we reported in to an office that was full of tatty furniture with clutter all over the floor and the welcome was lukewarm to say the least. The facilities were tired and the whole site could do with a bit of tidying up. Although new arrivals were not supposed to turn up until after 2 pm, the people who were going to occupy our pitch turned up at 11:00 while we were still packing up and couldn't wait for us to leave. They should not have been allowed in at that time of day.

Also, the statics were dated and spoilt the view.

St Davids is a gem, with a lovely cathedral and nice shops and restaurants. Lots of beaches and the lovely Solva not far away. I agree that the lane is very narrow and we too hoped not to meet another outfit coming the other way!

All in all, it is a shame because this site is popular because of its setting and access to the beach, not because of the facilities.
