All

As you may well be aware I had an accident in December and therefore my trip across north India in March has been cancelled.
Kim and I have always wanted to visit that other great celtic country of Wales but never managed.
Well now it has and I'm looking to visit south Wales end May or early June of this year probably for a couple of weeks and was wondering if anyone could recommend a nice quiet site in Pembrokeshire close to beaches and good restaurants as I like my food especially seafood?
Is May / June a good time to visit?

We have been watching the Griff Rhys-Jones series "A Great Welsh Adventure" that's currently showing on ITV on Mondays at 8pm, David.

He's already done Snowdonia, the Gower and Pembrokeshire (yesterday) and I have to admit that it's a stunningly beautiful country. If you haven't seen it you can catch up on ITV player.

The content is a bit lightweight but the scenery more than makes up for it.

We've stayed at the CC site at Lleithyr Meadow (or somesuch) since renamed St David's I believe. Not far from the city (?) and cathedral and walking distance of beaches and coastal path. We were there in August and it was just a third full. Good scenery from the site.

Recommend a visit (or even stay at or near Porthgain, a bit further east along the coast) interesting village and harbour and wonderful food) http://www.theshedporthgain.co.uk/ also http://sloop.co.uk/ which was too packed when we were there.

Sitting outside the Shed on a hot summers day with seafood lunch - superb.

Hi David.

Firstly we're glad to hear you're on the mend, all be it slowly.

Regarding Pembrokeshire camp sites, the only one we have stayed at recently is http://www.redlandstouring.co.uk/ which we found to be reasonably good but not terrific. Haverfordwest and Milford Haven are not too far away for eats.

Also, have you considered the Gower as an alternative? You could always "day trip" to Pembrokeshire from there. http://www.enjoygower.com/index.cfm

There are two camp sites on the Gower that we have recently visited but not stayed at, that look terrific. I suspect however that you would have to book "like now" to get into them.

Plenty to see and do and Swansea is very close by.

On the subject of beaches, I'll re-link you to the dog friendly beach thread here:- DOG FRIENDLY BEACHES
and ABERTAWE (the second one down) or COUNTY OF PEMBROKESHIRE and also CEREDIGION are the pages you want.
Just noticed the Pembrokeshire list (of one) is totally wrong so here's another website http://dogrover.co.uk/

If you are determined to visit Pembrokeshire I think Rodders had a camp site lined up down there a couple of years ago?

We were cancelled by the site because of flooding, but St,Davids looked a really good area.
Some nice resturants and the Lily Ponds at Stackpole/Bosherton
Have a google.

Hi David
Our favourite site in West Wales is Pencnwc near St Davids. No hookup but decent showers and they will let you top up your leisure battery for free. It is surrounded by beautiful walks around the headland and you can walk along the coast into St Davids. Website http://www.floronpencnwc.co.uk/index.html . If you like fresh seafood, particularly crab go to Porthgain. A lovely fish and shop - sit down with pot of tea and bread and butter can be found at Letterston http://www.somethingscooking.net/ . There is some of the finest coastal walking in Wales to be found around St Davids.
If you want to see the Gower walk between Port Eynon and Rhossili - don't know much about Gower campsites although they do tend to be a bit pricey. if you want to see the stunning beaches south of Pembroke visit Barafundle and the adjacent Broad Haven - the nearby St Petrox is a lovely small site, also Trefalen Farm at the back of Broadhaven beach is good but with minimal facilities (loo and wash basin). If you get the weather you will not regret your visit to West Wales.

Hi Vanman and welcome to the forum. We are really pleased that you could join us

Although we were "dragged up" near The Gower we have only camped there a few times. Last September however we took advantage of The Eriba Owner's Club Meet at Bank's Farm, Horton to really explore the Peninsula. Armed with a copy of Andrew Davies' book "Walking The Gower" kindly bought for us by one of our Daughter-in-Laws we walked our legs off including your recommendation of Port Eynon to Rhossilli. Fabulous although the book's author has either got very long legs or a conservative pedometer for every walk we did was at least 50% longer than he suggested

Here's some photos of the walk you recommend :-

Not a patch on what I've seen of your photos mate but they give a flavour. Looking forward to you uploading some of your own. Please feel free to use our Gallery facility.
