About the Event
PLEASE READ ALL OF THE EVENT DETAILS BEFORE BOOKING YOUR TICKET
THIS CAMPSITE IS FOR TENTS, EHUs AND VAN PITCHES.
Tickets will be a flat rate of £31 (including £1 bank transfer fee) per person for three nights stay.
Tickets will not be refundable.
Tickets will be on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. Once the site is full I will stop the ticket sale and set up a reserve list for people who still want to come. If anyone has to cancel then they will be able to exchange their ticket to the first person on my list. THIS EVENT WILL SELL OUT!
Electric Hook Up PitchesPre-booking is required for electric pitches which are suitable for all unit types. We have the following types of electric pitches (nearly half are dog friendly).
- Grass & Electric
- Grass, Electric & Water
- Hardstanding & Water
All our EHU pitch areas are marked within a 12m x 6m boundary. Each EHU pitch area is flanked by a 12m x 3m void area to ensure our guests enjoy an element of privacy and personal space during their stay. No physical objects i.e. guy ropes, chairs, wind breaks etc. are to be placed within these void areas. Your combined unit, caravan, motorhome, vehicles, tent, awning or gazebo (Including guy ropes) must not exceed the 12m x 6m EHU pitch boundary.
We have several water taps around the site as well as those on the serviced electric pitches. An ELSAN drain is located to the left of the facilities block for black water. There is also a drive over drain for grey water disposal.
Our electric hook up pitches are 8 AMPs; power is limited so please avoid using rapid boil kettles or several appliances together.
Tents using electric on site will need a 15m hook-up cable with a built-in circuit breaker and RCD. This helps protect you and your equipment.
These can be purchased on most outdoor and camping websites.
NON ELECTRIC PITCHES
These are grass pitches which are not marked out pitches to allow flexibility for camping alongside friends. The pitches are either in the "no dog" area or the "dog friendly" area.
If you wish to camp alongside a friend who has a dog, the whole group should book dog friendly pitches. If there are not enough available, it’s only a short walk to the non-dog area.
For the comfort of all campers, please pitches are limited to one unit with an awning or similar, maximum 5 adults per pitch.
Check In is 1pm and check out is 12 noon at the latest. Any extensions to pre-booked pitches are subject to availability.
Facilities Block - contains separate male and female toilets & showers, a washing up area and laundry room. Use of a freezer is provided free of charge to freeze your cool blocks.
Showers - 20p per 2 mins (Only 20p or £1 coins accepted). A free cold-water shower is available at the rear of the building for beach users to wash sand off wet suits before entering the main shower area.
Laundry appliances – washing machine and tumble dryer, charges apply.
Phone Charging Unit - £1 for 1 hour.
WIFI - The WIFI is a free service, and is provided as is. The best coverage is around the reception area. At busy times the speed can slow down, and the connection or availability is not guaranteed at any time.
Waste & Recycling – Please recycle as much as possible. Please take large unwanted / broken items home with you.
BBQS & Fire Pits – these are permitted providing they are lifted off the ground, under control and the grass is not marked. Fire pits are available to rent and logs are for sale at reception. Disposable BBQs are NOT allowed.
The Duke of Edinburgh Inn is next to the campsite providing meals and drinks and is dog friendly
The Victoria Inn in Roch (a 3-minute drive) caters for all with great food and their very special real ales which we really love! Dog friendly.
NEWGALE: A 2 minute walk across the road from the campsite is Newgale Beach, famed for being one of the longest sandy beaches in the UK and for its surfing. At low tide, it is an awesome sight, wet suits and surfing equipment can be hired in the surf shop adjacent to the Duke Of Edinburgh Pub.
WHITE SANDS: This is also another good surfing beach on the outskirts of St David’s.
SOLVA: There is a lovely coastal walk of 5.5 miles to Solva from Newgale. A bus back Monday to Saturday is optional. Solva is a quaint village with a harbour, several pubs, coffee shops and gift shops.
ST. DAVID’S: St David's is a city and a community with a cathedral in Pembrokeshire, Wales, lying on the River Alun. It is the final resting place of Saint David, Wales's patron saint, and named after him. St David’s is the United Kingdom's smallest city in terms of population and urban area. Pop around the back to The Refectory you’ll find a beautiful, calming space that’s designed to give you a bit of time for contemplation. The city itself boasts shops, cafes and pubs together with a well-established tourism office.
TENBY: This popular town has beautiful beaches and lots of shops and restaurants to choose from. The individually painted terraced seaside houses are extremely picturesque.
BROAD HAVEN & LITTLE HAVEN: These beaches can be accessed along the coastal road. Broad Haven is slightly more commercial than Little Haven which is more scenic and quainter.
BARAFUNDLE BAY AND BROAD HAVEN SOUTH:
These are one of the jewels of Pembrokeshire if not the UK and to see them at low tide is breath taking. They are quite isolated and you have to walk a short distance to get to them from the car park.
TRAETH LLYFN beach is between PORTHGAIN & ABEREIDDY. At Abereiddy there is the “Blue Lagoon” which is an amazing blue pool of water. At Porthgain there is a great pub called The Sloop and a fish and a gourmet fish and chip shop called The Shed which makes its own tartar sauce, scrummy! You can easily walk to all three locations within an hour.
ABERMAWR and ABERBACH are two nice pebble beaches if you want something small but quiet.
If you like walking there is no finer walk that at PWLL DERI or STACKPOLE as the views are spectacular and there is a hidden church built into the cliff face. You can walk right round to STRUMBLE HEAD LIGHT HOUSE in one of the most isolated parts of the Pembrokeshire Coast and if you walk down to the viewpoints looking down at the small craggy beaches you will occasionally see groups of seals. You can also look down at where the last invasion of the British mainland took place in the 17th century.
If you fancy seeing some sights inland, here are a few choices. Nevern is an old church out near Newport that has a famed 6th century Celtic cross as well as “the bleeding tree” which bleeds red sap and has an old legend attached to it. Over the same way you have Pentre ifan, a classic example of a Neolithic burial chamber (Cromlech). Nearby is a recreation of an iron age fort Castell Henllys, which does have an entry charge. Just up the road again you have Cenarth waterfalls and Cilgerran. There is a castle with stunning views as well as an old standing stone in the graveyard with Ogham inscriptions.
All extra activities are taken at your own risk and you will not be covered by the BSC insurance.
PLEASE LEAVE NO TRACE at the campsite and beach. Pick up any rubbish and remember your bin/recycling bags. You are all responsible for our area and your own trash. Put all recycled and rubbish bags in the bins provided at the toilet blocks and not leave them on the field.
Remember to be kind and inclusive to all members. We welcome all genders and cultures, in fact I don’t know a better bunch of lovely people, so if you are struggling in any way then don’t be afraid to come and chat to one of the Committee members.
Again… THIS TRIP IS FOR BSC MEMBERS ONLY.
Any other questions will be answered in the comments in the event page on the BSC Facebook.
