Coastal Stay - Noddfa Farm
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 May 2014

We've just returned from a May bank holiday camping experience at this lovely small site, hosted by Marilyn and Nick, who just could not do enough for us. We were a party of 13, with a VW campervan and numerous tents, 6 adults, 7 kids and a dog, and were given a relatively sheltered spot in the trees on what turned out to be a very blowy weekend. Marilyn brought everyone on arrival a hot brew, much appreciated, and was eager to share her local knowledge, best walks, nicest pubs, etc. The views across the fields to Porthgain and to the sea were great, the sky at night was lit up with stars, our own campfire kept us snug and happy. The kids enjoyed playing football on the field, swinging on the giant punchbag, stroking the goats and generally exploring and going a bit feral! The adults fared similarly! We all had a fab bbq on our first night, enjoyed a lovely coastal walk to Abereiddy and round to Porthgain, the kids took on the locals on the football pitch at Porthgain while the grown-ups enjoyed a local ale in the sun and browsed the crafts shops and art galleries. We walked back to Porthgain for a great meal at the Sloop Inn (book in advance if big group) - Marilyn was kind enough to dog sit our friends' young dog while we did so, which was really going above and beyond. The whole ambience of the site was friendly, laid back and peaceful. Facilities are ace, two power showers and three loos in a warm and beautifully made outdoor facility close to all tents, and there's also the luxury indoor bathroom with power shower and toilet. There's a brill cwtch, a whole site firepit; there were personal firepits available last year but they've all been stolen by campers - some people really have no concept of shared benefits! We took our own as it happens but the cwtch looked like a great communal facility. It was well worth the journey from the Midlands. People like Marilyn and Nick, who go out of their way to be welcoming, accommodating and kind, really do deserve support - highly recommended.

Room Tip: The "woodland" setting is the most sheltered, it's quite an exposed site so take a win...

We were welcomed by Marilyn and Nick and offered a choice of pitches to choose from. Electricity was set up for us pretty quickly and we were shown around and offered a free hot drink on arrival. The views and sunsets are spectacular here in the summer. We were allowed to build a campfire near our tent which isn't usually available at other campsites! Short trip down to the sloop pub next to a beautiful little fishing harbour and a perfect distance to St Davids which you can drive to or walk the coastal path that doesn't take too long. If you want a quiet, peaceful site this is it! We even had a visit from Troy the cocker Spaniel (although I fear he was after our bacon sandwiches!) who had a broken leg at the time and were amused to watch Marilyn and Nick, or some lucky children, take the goats for a walk around the site every afternoon.

The only small downfall here is the showers as there was often a queue, not a problem for the loos as there was a portaloo available aswell. However after raising this with Marilyn she assured me it's in the pipeline to buiild a shower block next year... do this and you'll get 5 stars from us!

We will definitely be back again :)

The campsite is small and cosy with enough room for about 11 pitches. E arrived late Friday night to a warm welcome from Marilyn and her daughters who showed us with slight amusement the way to to our pitch in the dark and asked if we needed anything before they left us to out up our tent with the car headlamps for light. Next morning we woke up to a surprisingly well put up tent, sunshine, beautiful views and and flat battery. With the help of the campsite owner thankfully we got the car started.
Part from this boy stArt to our camping holiday we had a great time. The views are wonderful, the sky so full of stars at night and the posh shower and toilet only a short distance away - although there would be sometimes be a bit of a wait to get into the shower, once In and shower on it was well worth the wait. Nothing like a proper shower to freshen after sleeping on a bumpy bed roll.
All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our time on the site especially our 12 year. The goats were great entertainment and being able to build campfires kept us warm and under the stars well into the night. Many campsites don't allow campfires so this was a real treat. Plenary of lovely places to visit . And long walk with beautiful scenery. One of our favourite places was portgain a picturesque and tiny old fishing village, and not to forget the blue lagoon - a must see and a great place for a swim. We would definitely go back and spend more time there next time - walking and kayaking. The kayaking around the coast line is fantastic!

We had a fab time. Location - amazing views and sunset. Great coastal walks and yummy food to be had at the local pub. We were made to feel like part of the family and once you got your head around showering inside their home - it was just fab to have a power shower that you didn't constantly have to push the button like in generic campsites....best part was the tent service of toasted bacon sandwiches & unlimited fresh coffee :)) will def be back Jane & Kerry (and Boston & Lily Lou our labs) x

Stayed here for 3 nights in August and had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. Marilyn and Nick are lovely hosts - very warm and genuine. The campsite is small and on spilt levels with views out to the Irish Sea. It has a large pond and central, paddock with goats and ponies which children can feed and stroke. There are options to have breakfast cooked for you in the main house which we did on one lazy morning and it was great.

The bathrooms are located in the main house and are like hotel bathrooms with amazing power showers and modern decor plus there are separate loos outside. We never had to wait any more than 5 mins for a bathroom and it was pretty busy when we were there.

Overall a great time was had by all the family. Our boys have never been that into animals and they ended up feeding the goats from their hands which was lovely to watch.

Special thanks to Nick for helping me reverse up the field in the damp - I'd never have made unless he egged me on to "floor it".

Hope to go back next year.

It seems that this site has just been set up. We were welcomed by Nick who was very friendly and accommodating but almost seemed to apologise for the cost - £40 per night for 2 adults 2 children and 2 dogs in a camper/tent set up. This is twice the price to other campsites in the area. There is one portaloo and one other loo in the owner's house which feels a little weird and unsatisfactory. The washing up area is a plastic table next to a cold water tap. Despite this, the views are great and nearby walks spectacular. Another gripe though - to get anywhere you need to walk half a mile on roads, not ideal for dog owners.
