Pencarnan is 96 acre working farm extending to the high water mark on Porthsele beach. We are situated on the most westerly point of Pembrokeshire looking out toward St Georges Channel which connects with the Irish sea to the north and the Celtic Sea to the south. The campsite part of the farm began around 1956. My parents were tenants here before they bought the farm, my father was born at Pencarnan in 1915. Aside from the farming and caravans and camping we also run a miniature horse stud and now show these horses all over England and Wales. Most of our campers have come to us from word of mouth recommendation since it all began back in the 50’s….and some of the ‘original’ campers are still visiting.
If you are looking for a bit of the wild life and love the outdoors then Pencarnan is for you. When the wind blows it sure does blow, and the rain is driven in off the sea with some force. But when the sun shines and the sea is however you like it, this corner of Pembrokeshire is the most amazing place to play in. The Pembrokeshire coast path runs over our headland and the Celtic Coaster bus runs every hour in the summer months from the top of our track…this little bus will take you to various points on the coast path around the St Davids area so you can walk/run to one of these points then get a lift home. St Davids is 2 miles away, so not too far to cycle with the family for a pub lunch or a mooch around the shops.
