Campsite will open again when Wales 2021 lockdown has been lifted.
23 February 2021. We normally open the campsite at Easter every year. However, all of Wales is currently in Covid 19 lockdown (Alert Level 4). This means campsites are to remain closed until told otherwise by the Welsh Assembly Government. The next 3 weekly review is due the week starting 8th March 2021.
Based on current government statements, the campsite is very unlikely to open for Easter, with self-catered accommodation in England not open for example until 12th April. We await further details on accommodation and campsites in Wales.

Beautiful summer sunsets in August: this photo was taken in 2020, looking out from a campsite field towards St David's Head:
Met Office Whitesands Beach Forecast
The new 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).
Farm Fields (13 acres, or nearly 10 football pitches) above the beach; open in August, with plenty of room and space. This 'wild camping' is restricted to tents and trailer tents, with places to pitch that are set far apart. There are water taps located in most fields, no hook-ups. 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 in order to remain self contained (many did this in the 2020 season).
Happy campers from Abergavenny:

The new Shower and Toilet Block opened in August 2020.
There are electric hook-ups on the main site ("first-come-first-served"). It is not possible to book hook-ups in advance.
Electric showers are £1 for a token. Campers must not use coins, they shut down the meters.
We do not allow campfires on the ground which damages the grass (the campsite is part of a working farm).
In the interests of other campers, dogs should be kept under close control or preferably on a lead on the site. 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 is fairly flat, sloping gently down towards the sea. The farm fields open in August. The higher up you go in the fields, the flatter your pitch will be (and more dramatic the view).
