Park Accessibility

This brief guide regarding accessibility access at Caerfai Bay Caravan and Tent Park is designed to help customers with additional needs plan their stay.

Park Accessibility

Caerfai Bay Caravan and Tent Park is located just south of St Davids and accessed by a single track road with passing places. The road is wide enough for motorhome and minibuses but not suitable for full length buses of coaches. Most people travelling to Caerfai have their own transport. Those relying on public transport may use the train to Haverfordwest or Fishguard and the connecting bus services to St Davids. From St Davids, Caerfai Bay Caravan and Tent Park is just under a mile walk or taxi services are available.

For visitors with disabilities who are looking to explore the beautiful Pembrokeshire coastline there are a few options. Pembrokeshire Coastal Bus Services are designed for tourists to access the Pembrokeshire Coast National Trail without having to use a car. The ‘Celtic Coaster’ bus service takes you to the St Davids Peninsula. The bus runs on LPG – an environmentally friendly fuel – and can carry wheelchairs. The 14-seater minibus runs from St Davids to Porthclais, St Justinians and Whitesands, enabling you to see the peninsula, catch the boat trips to Ramsey Island or enjoy a day on the beach.
