We do not formally take bookings at any time of year and cannot allocate pitches or electric hook-ups in advance: "first-come-first served policy".
Office opening hours are posted daily by Mark the Campsite Manager; if you arrive outside of these hours, you are welcome to pitch up and visit the office when convenient (for shower tokens, payment, advice etc).

The Shower and Toilet block opened in August 2020. There are separate female, male and disabled/family sections; an outside washdown shower and stainless steel washing-up sink. Tokens are available for the shower meters (coins will not work).
Main site (30 pitches - shown in photo below): Tents, trailer tents, campervans (such as VW T5) and smaller sized motorhomes are welcome. Sorry, we don't have pitches for caravans or very large motorhomes ('A' class @7 metre plus; and RV).
Farm Fields: (13 acres, or nearly 10 football pitches) right above the beach; plenty of space. This 'wild camping' is restricted to tents, trailer tents and vehicles with driveaway awnings; the pitches are set far apart. Of course, the facilities on the main site (showers and toilets) are also available to campers using the farm fields. There will be no additional charge for those who bring their own toilet tents to remain self contained.

There are electric hook-ups on the main site. It is not possible to book hook-ups in advance.
Electric Shower Tokens are £1. Campers must not use coins, they shut down the meters.
We do not allow campfires on the ground because they damage the grass (the campsite is part of a working farm). Respect the Farm.
In the interests of other campers, dogs should be kept under close control or preferably on a lead. They are not allowed in the shower and toilet block.
To avoid damage to the grass-cutting machinery and natural environment: campers are requested not to remove stones from the hedges or leave them on the fields: Respect the Farm.
The main 30 pitch site slopes gently down towards the sea. The farm fields are open in August 2022: the higher up you go in the fields, the flatter your pitch will be, and more dramatic the view. Park next to your pitch.
Groups of under-18s are accepted if contact details of "a responsible adult" are provided by e-mail, and payment for the camping visit is made immediately on arrival at the office.
We accept contactless and card payments (preferred) or cash.
Mobile Phone - signal on the campsite next to the beach is weak, it improves with a walk to the top fields or a short distance up the hill on the St Davids road. Alternatively use wifi calling.
