Cowpots Camping, Penback Farm, Ciffig, Whitland, Carmarthenshire SA34 0NG
Back-to-basics tent camping on a working farm that produces the finest homemade ice-cream for miles!

There must be something special growing in the grass around Cowpots Camping. It’s not just that it provides soft, easy-to-pitch potential for a family tent in summer. But, over the fence, a dozen or so Jersey cows graze the green slopes here too. They’re Penback Farm’s pride and joy and, when you taste the homemade ice-cream, you’ll quickly understand why. After a long day on a nearby Pembrokeshire beach or a stroll in the 40-acre wood at the foot of the campsite, you’ll quickly discover this is surely the tastiest, creamiest ice-cream in all of West Wales. It’s a sign of the way things work at Cowpots: keep it simple, keep it authentic, keep it traditional and, unsurprisingly, things will come good.

The campsite itself is a similarly unpretentious affair. There are just ten tent pitches – each one huge, with some 11-acres of camping meadow in total – while a space in the centre has been mown out for playing ball games and generally hooning about. There’s a couple of composting toilets and gas-powered showers mean you can still have a hot, powerful wash in the morning. At the top of the meadow, meanwhile, a wooden shed houses a row of washing-up sinks, too, and a small honest shop where you can buy logs and marshmallows for your evening campfire.

Accessed via a farm track, the Cowpots meadow is safely tucked away for children to run wild (though it is still a working farm so be aware of tractors on the local lanes!) and offers wonderful views of the Preselli Mountains. Though you can’t see the sea, it’s only a short drive away. Vast Pendine Sands is one of the closest beaches, aided by lifeguards in summer it’s an excellent spot to swim, while Amroth beach is similarly close and has excellent rock pools to poke around in on the western end. Both are good places to pick up the famous Pembrokeshire Coast Path, too, for a walk along the dramatic waterfront that this part of Wales affords. It’ll all neatly work up the appetite again for your return to the farm where The Cowpots Cowshed serves up wood-fire-cooked pizzas along with that renowned Jersey ice-cream.

The Owner Says

Situated on Pen Back Farm, Cowpots Camping offer 10 pitches for camping in the countryside. We call the camping field “Tree Field” because it has a beautiful Welsh Oak tree in the middle of it. It is a huge 11 acre field, the same size as the roof that covers Wembeley stadium! Accessed by a farm track and 600m away from the farm buildings you’ll be sure to find some peace and quiet in the countryside, surrounded by nature. Pen Back Farm is on the border of Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire so we have excellent access to the delights and sights of both counties and we are only 15 minutes away from the closest beach.
