Caerhafod Lodge is a Visit Wales graded 4 Star Hostel, situated within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. The location is rural as Caerhafod is a small holding, we still have a small herd of suckler cows. It has a breathtaking 180 degree view of the coastline from Strumble Head – the North Bishop Island. It makes an ideal base for all kinds of activities.
Caerhafod Lodge has 5 en-suite rooms, a fully equipped self-catering kitchen diner and a sitting room with both comfortable chairs for relaxing, and tables for writing etc, ideal for lectures, seminars and tutorials. There’s also an additional toilet and shower area attached to this room. We also have a laundry/drying room with washing machine. We don’t have CCTV, but as I live on site I’m available most of the time for help and advice.
