About Home Farm St Davids

perfectly placed pitches on the Pembrokeshire Coast

The Owners

If you’ve visited before, then you might have noticed that Tynewydd Farm campsite has got a new name – Home Farm St Davids. That’s because it also has new owners; Paul and Linda Andrews have been coming from Cardiff to Pembrokeshire on holidays themselves for years, and having a property in St Davids city for approximately the last 4 years, they jumped at the chance to be able to offer other people the opportunity to come and have holidays on this gorgeous peninsula that they love so much.

Paul and Linda also look forward to meeting returning guests who know this spot well and come back for the panoramic coastal views year upon year. They just hope that they can offer the same warm hospitality that previous guests received from Mrs Samuel, and look forward to sharing one of the best campsites in the West with old friends and new.


The Site

Although Paul and Linda have made some changes to the amenities available on site, those visiting will recognise their favourite views from the same fields – after all, why change something so great? To learn more about the site and each pitch location, please visit our Camping page.

The site itself sits neatly below a small yet distinctive cairn called Clegyr Boia, which translated from Welsh means Boia’s Crag. Boia was a 6th-century Irish pirate who claimed this outcrop as his stronghold, although it’s the rare Neolithic settlement that makes this spot historically interesting as there are very few remaining in Wales. It seems everyone liked the view from this impressive and imposing cairn, as there is evidence of Iron Age and Roman occupation. Our guests can enjoy a 360-degree panoramic view of St Davids Head from this fantastic spot, with paths leading up the rock and out towards the Pembrokeshire Coast path that runs 186 miles along the only coastal National Park in the UK.


The Area

Less than a mile away from Home Farm, the ancient religious pilgrim’s destination of St Davids cathedral can be seen clearly from the campsite. This impressive building, erected in 1181, sits on the site of David, the Patron Saint of Wales’s monastic community from the 5th century, and attracts tourists year-round due to its religious and cultural significance for Wales, as well as its majestic architecture and incredible location deep in the valley below the cobbled streets of the tiny city. St Davids itself is home to many cafes, restaurants, takeaways and pubs, as well as many boutique shops, a small supermarket and post office, a fantastic local butcher, and a petrol station. We include emergency numbers such as doctors surgeries and vets, garages etc on our Camp Conduct page and within your booking email, but we’re proud to list some fantastic local amenities below that serve locals and visitors well throughout the year

Other Activites in the area


If you fancy a short walk from your pitch to the sea, then follow the road down towards Upper Treginnis Farm and out towards Porthllysgi beach, which is about a mile away. This stony inlet is quite shallow and can be lovely and warm when the tide comes in over the warm sand in summer.

Porthclais harbour is also very close by – it was once the harbour for St Davids even before it was named after our patron Saint when it was known as Menevia. Today it’s a small but bustling fishing harbour with a slipway for launching small boats and dinghy,with seating to take in the beautiful views, it’s pet-friendly and a great place for bringing children to try crabbing. You can also get the best coffee, ice cream and sandwiches from Porthclais Kiosk.

If you own a boat and want to bring it with you on holiday, then this is the place to bring it! We can accommodate small boats on-site – for more information, call us on 07970 741495. Fishing is extremely popular in this area, whether off the coast or out to sea, so don’t forget your rod!

Award-winning Whitesands beach is a 5-minute drive from Home Farm. This gorgeous sandy stretch is great for swimming, sunbathing and building sandcastles and is a family favourite blue flag beach. It also has Whitesands Beach Cafe on site, as well as ample car parking, an ice cream stand, a lifeguard station, and wetsuit and deck chair hire in the summer months.

A short drive up the peninsula, you’ll find Abereiddy, a small hamlet set within a sandy cove and home to the infamous Blue Lagoon. The remnants of the mining that used to take place here have been engulfed by the sea, but the ore left exposed in the mine shaft make the water a distinctive turquoise colour, hence its name. From here you can swim, go coasteering or just take the lovely walk along the coastline and through this area’s slate mining history. If it’s industrial history that takes your fancy, then head to Porthgain to see the remnants of the brick hoppers that made this port a brick-making super port in the late 1800s. Why not also visit the Sloop Inn for a pint, and the Shed for delicious fish and chips?

Activities in the area

At Home Farm, you’re a mere 5 minutes from St Justinians where you can take boat trips around the coastline’s many fascinating and wildlife-rich islands. Ramsey is the largest island and is the closest to the mainland – you can see it from the campsite. It’s an RSPB Nature Reserve as it’s home to an impressive number of birds including choughs, guillemots, and peregrine falcons. If you’d like to take a peek at Pembrokeshire’s resident celebrities, then head over to Skomer Island between May and September to see the 22,000 pairs of puffins who call this island their summer home. Skomer and Skockholm are also home to the second-largest breeding colony of Manx Shearwaters in the world! These islands and waters are full of playful creatures including grey seals and harbour porpoises, so it’s worth taking a trip even if you don’t visit the islands.

The companies that run boat trips locally are:
Aquaphobia Boat Trips – 01437 729 459
Voyages of Discovery – 01437 721911
Falcon Boats – 07494 141764

If you’d rather be in the water than on it, then why not indulge in Pembrokeshire’s very own original form of watersport, coasteering? Coasteering is a mixture of scrambling rocks and cliff jumping – all this takes place in a wetsuit and under the watchful eye of experienced coasteering leaders. It’s a brilliant adrenaline rush and is suitable for all ages.

For coasteering adventures:
TYF takes tours out of beautiful Porthclais harbour.
MUUK take tours out of the incredible Blue Lagoon at Abereiddy.

For chartered fishing trips for those of you keen to do a spot of sea fishing, contact
Blue Shark Charters operate from St Justinians.

Or if you’d like to do a bit of sea swimming but you’re not sure how to get started, why not call on the BlueTits, a group of all-year-round sea swimmers who welcome visitors and new members with open, wetsuited arms!
