Dolcoed 03Exploring the beach

Carmarthenshire

West of Burry Port is a seven to eight mile long beach - Cefn Sidan, in Welsh - which is backed by dunes and woodland.  Most people seem to be unable to walk more than a couple of hundred yards from the car parks which means that about 90% of the people use about 10% of the beach!

 

We stayed at the Caravan Club site at Pembrey Country Park, near Burry Port, in July and walked down to the beach each day.  From the far end of the westernmost carpark, entrance at N51.6771° W4.3138°, there is a wide track heading north-west and parallel to the beach.  After about 500 yards the track swings right and a narrow path continues ahead.  Take this path and after a further 1,000 yards or so, turn left and the beach is couple of hundred yards over the dunes.  On more than one occasion we were able to strip off soon after entering the narrow path and continue our walk in comfort or to leave the beach nude and follow the path until dressing as we were getting near the car park.  On one occasion, soon after leaving the beach, we noticed a clothed couple walking towards us.  Thinking that this would be a good way of testing public opinion we continued walking.  As we passed we all greeted each other and continued.

 

In 2009 there were moves to ban nudity on this beach, click on the BBC link to read more about it.

For stocking up the cupboards there are a Waitrose, a Budgens, an M&S Foods and a Lidl in Monmouth, about five miles north, and a large Tesco in Chepstow, about eight miles south.

 

There are no rubbish disposal facilities at WSF, but there is a municipal recycling depot on the outskirts of Monmouth.

 

It was as a result of a conversation with another member that this website came to be.

Dolcoed - 2017

Dolcoed - 2017

There is space for fifteen tourers, each with sixteen amp electric hook-up. There is also one static caravan that is available for hire. As the site is so new, the pitches all looked a bit raw, but there are plans to improve this by laying turf between the pitches which will improve the general look. The electricity is provided by means of a prepaid card, obtainable at check-in, which is then loaded into the supply tower.  Wi-fi is available only near the owners’ house, but there are plans to extend it.

 

One end of the large barn contains brand new showers and lavatories, built to a high standard with automatic lighting; a washing machine and tumble dryer; a refrigerator and freezer; and a microwave oven, kettle and toaster. The other end contains a full-sized billiard table, a table tennis table, a dart board and a large television with comfortable seating together with a small library of books and DVDs. There are plans to improve this area with a new floor, interior cladding and patio doors at the entrance.

When we visited Dolcoed in July as part of a tour of the country, it was very new. The owners had purchased the site in November, worked hard all winter and opened at Easter. A huge amount of earthmoving and landscaping had been done to achieve what will, in a year or two’s time, be a very pleasant site. Already there are large areas of immaculately kept grass for sunbathing

 

We were welcomed by the owner who gave us a tour of the facitlities and told us of the plans for improvements. While we were there he was always around the site and willing to give help and advice when needed.

In Lampeter there is a Co-op supermarket on the right just as you enter the town and a Sainsbury’s in the town. There is also a good range of other shops, including an excellent ironmonger that seems to sell everything.

 

We did enjoy our stay here, but didn’t like the fixed temperature, push-button showers. We do like to be able to vary the temperature and, if it is a particularly hot day, finish with some cold.

 

We hope to return in a year or two to see how the site has developed.
