Camping

Abercastle Campsite

…offers spacious pitches which include campfire pits and picnic tables. It is surrounded by traditional earth banks which encourage wildlife to visit. At night, the sky is caressed by the loom of the Strumble Head lighthouse.

Abercastle Campsite (formally known as Garn Gwely Campsite) is set on the small holding of Garn Isaf, Abercastle. It sits in a picturesque location just 5 minutes walk from the tiny fishing harbour and beaches of Abercastle and the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. It is in the heart of Pembrokeshire National Park, Wales, the only coastal National Park in the United Kingdom and close to St Davids.

It is a CL (Certified Location) campsite, with extremely large individual pitches, with many of them surrounded by traditional Pembrokeshire banks, each one with its own picnic table and camp fire, water tap and electric hook up ( there is an additional charge for use of the hook up) where you can spend the evening exchanging stories, singing and playing instruments, melting marshmallows, cooking stick bread or some delicious local catch of mackerel, crab or lobster.

Abercastle Campsite is surrounded by stunning scenery and a plethora of wildlife habitats.

Camping with individual private facilities per pitch, so you don’t have to share with other people. Extra piece of mind in these scary times of Covid19.

We are a quiet site so everyone can enjoy their camping holiday. ( No loud music, a no radio site ( meaning the volume of music is low so no other pitches or the properties of Garn Isaf can also hear your music!)).

We are a dog friendly site and dogs are very welcome, but please be mindful that there are other guests and to keep your dog under control at all times, out of courtesy. We are just minutes away from the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and Abercastle beach ( also one of many dog friendly beaches around us) and a short distance from St. David’s. For families who enjoy camping, it is the ideal location.

We now have WiFi on the campsite to enable campers to access emails and to do searches ( you will not be able to do streaming on it though) so you can still access the outside world but not have it take over your holiday!

Our site is exclusive to Greener Camping Club Ltd members, membership is done at the time of your booking, we will do this for you and is only £10 to join. With your £10 membership fee a tree is planted which goes to creating greener habitats which we at Abercastle think is really lovely and are all about.

We have a 15 pitch site, each with its own picnic table and fire pit. We can only have 5 in total Caravans and / or Camper Vans so please book early to ensure you can have a pitch. We will keep to a maximum of 11 or 13 pitches on the site to ensure we keep that lovely feeling of a small, quiet and relaxed campsite.

We ask guests to arrive after 4pm and on departure days, leave by 10am in order that ground maintenance & cleaning can be undertaken.

The permanent facilities have keys. Only your pitch or if you are in an allowed bubble can use your facilities that are given to you.
