 Cliff-top location so expect wind. Campervans must pitch in first field which doesn't have the best of the views. Walking distance of St Davids. Well positioned for coastal path and great walks. Other than that, rather isolated.

Vans and cars from the furthest pitches did drive to the facilities early morning but didn't particularly blame them in wet and windy weather. Most expensive of the 4 sites booked on our tour of Wales, and not our favourite.

Not all level pitches - the best seemed to be taken by permanent caravans. Plenty of toilets but the wash basins were a little cramped and awkward. Most visitors were there for watersports.

 This is a lovely well-run campsite in a location which is exceptional. It has sea views, direct access to the coast path, and is within walking distance of the lovely, interesting town of St. Davids.

The charges on the site are per person, so I had a bargain as I was on my own in quite a large tent, and only paid £7 a night.

It was quite windy on one night, but that's to be expected really in top of a cliff, and I was prepared for this.

Freezer blocks and mobile phone charging are both available, information which I couldn't find easily on the web site.

My only gripe is about campers driving to and from the toilets starting at about 6. 30 on the Sunday morning. This wasn't very noisy, but as I was pitched just the other side of the hedge from their route, it was unpleasant to be lying there breathing in the fumes and being aware of wheels spinning just above my head. I would advise you to look the other side of the hedge when choosing a pitch.

 Visiting in early July meant we had a huge choice of pitches across the different fields available, all of which were well maintained and had spectacular views. Direct access to the coast path meant we could watch the sun come up over the bay and set over Ramsey Island. A bit breezy on the last night but worth it for the views.

The facilities were excellent, clean and tidy. The owners came round checking we had 50ps for the showers which was a lovely touch. They also provided details of the local bus routes so we could walk out and get a bus back without worry.

Perfectly positioned site for exploring St David's and the surrounding islands.

Reviewer: Chuckylefrek 1 review from this member

 We narrowed our choices of campsite down to 3 campsites in the area and visited each of the 3 sites on the day or our arrival to select our favourite. All 3 sites had superb sea views and several fields, important factors for us.

Porthclais Farm was an instant hit with all the family. It was in a superb setting, the owners of the site are really nice people and the facilities are clean and enough showers and toilets to cater for the number of people on the site. I did not have to queue once for the showers in a whole week though I do get up rather early and was at the showers at around 7am each day.

There were several fields to choose from all with space which is great considering it is August. We chose the field with the best views though all fields would have had a view. On reflection, I may have chosen a field further back from the edge of the cliff as it got rather windy on the last day and we took the brunt of it in our position. It was worth it for the views though.

The location of the campsite is fantastic - you can walk into St David's either along a path or along the road and it is approximately 30 minutes walk - probably less but I was taking photos along the way so that slowed me down. There is also a lovely harbour next to the site, no more than a few minutes walk from all the fields. There is a cafe and carpark next to the harbour so you could drive if you are feeling lazy or have old dogs who refuse to walk.

Overall we were really pleased with this campsite and it was perfect for our needs and we will definitely be back.

 This is a wonderful campsite and I agree with all the already positive comments of all the other reviewers. For us it was exactly what we wanted. It's a fantastic location - the only caveat being that the lowermost field is exposed to all weathers (including wind) so you might want to think carefully how/where you pitch.

Owners are lovely, the facilities well thought out, clean and function fine, pitches are good. 50p for 4mins worth of shower.

You can walk into St Davids via a footpath rather than on the road. St Davids itself has an excellent variety of food shops and including an excellent deli, butchers and veg shop. Also excellent Giannis ice-cream shop, the fish and chip shop and Saffron (the Indian restaurant).

 First time to Wales and spoilt by a large picturesque campsite, with stunning views over the sea and countryside. Owners were chatty, friendly and very helpful. Choice of pitch and freedom to arrive and depart at leisure.

The large fields provide ample space and people pitch around the edges leaving plenty of room in the middle for activities such as ball games and kite flying.

50p showers ensures enough hot water and sufficient time to wash, condition hair etc. Never had to wait. Just a suggestion (intended to mention at the time) a row of lower hooks in the shower would make it easier for children to hang up their clothes whilst showering.

A path provides an easy walk into town where there's a choice cafés, pubs and a small supermarket. Crabbing in the nearby harbour is a must for young children.

Will definitely return to explore more of the coastal path, beaches and bike rides.

 Our second visit to this site, returning after our visit last year.

Nothing more to add - it's still in a stunning location. Facilities were clean and practical. People running the site were friendly and helpful.

Mostly tents with plenty of space in the fields. Reasonably priced.

I hope we'll return next year.

Reviewer: Jacs5 2 reviews from this member

 Can't really add much to the previous reviews. We loved this site. Nice to be able to pitch where you like as long as you're not less than 20ft from the next unit. There was plenty space in all the fields even in a gorgeous week in August. Slightly busier at the weekend. Being a campervan we were asked to camp in the top field but after a couple of days we were glad of this as the walk to the loo is not quite so far! The facilities are basic compared to some but the showers worked fine (50p gives plenty time) and the toilets always flushed first time! A footpath leads to St Davids and took less than half an hour to walk. A van comes onto the site every morning selling bread etc. Can't say exactly what as we never used it but could be very useful. We would definitely go again as loads to do in the area too.

Reviewer: Aduffelluk 1 review from this member

 Location: 20 mins' walk from St David's on quiet footpaths so great for pubs, cafes and dinner. Right on the coast so quite exposed especially in the lower fields (we had 40mph winds on the first night!), but great views in good weather and good walks all around you.

Management: well-run, friendly welcome. Lots of notices telling you to do this / don't do that but didn't mind those as they were only encouraging people to be considerate.

Character: big, natural and rugged.

Ground: solid and well-drained – take a hammer!

Price: £7 per adult per night, which we thought was good value.

Facilities: toilets and showers kept very clean (showers 50p a go), but everything is clustered together near reception with nothing on the rest of the large site. This means the caravans and camper vans (all in the first field) that already have toilets are nearest to the blocks, with all the tents further away, which is not the ideal setup. Having said that, there was plenty of room even in August so there's no reason why you have to pitch miles away from it all.

Nice things: mobile catering van comes round every morning serving hot drinks and all sorts of breakfast items, so cheating is easy.

All round a good campsite with lots of space to spread out.

Reviewer: Essendy 8 reviews from this member

 The site is right on the coast and so offers easy access to the coastal path and there are great walks in either direction.

The shower, toilet and washing up facilities are very good and there was plenty of hot water. The showers take 50 pence pieces, but one gives you enough time.

St. David's is a mile away and is a lovely little city with shops for your supplies and dog-friendly pubs.

The pitches are not allocated and this is a very relaxing and quiet site, despite it being so popular.
