Family-run, family-friendly camping and yurt glamping with campfires allowed in the heart of Pembrokeshire

In Pembrokeshire, all roads lead to Haverfordwest. It’s the very centre of the action — and as this is Pembrokeshire, there’s quite a lot of that. Pitch your tent near this market town and you’re well placed to experience it all: from the family-friendly farm parks of the Welsh countryside to the surf-friendly beaches of the west coast and from isolated islands that teem with wildlife to buzzy harbour towns like Tenby. Quarry Park Camping is just a few miles east of Haverfordwest in the very heart of this Welsh county. It’s easy to get to, easy to explore from and easy to camp at, too.

This is a family-run campsite on a smallholding with simple grass pitches and two fully-furnished yurts. It’s all off-grid for “proper” camping but thoughtful touches, like a communal undercover kitchen, make the whole thing easier — especially if the weather turns a bit Welsh. When you arrive, Matt or Caroline will welcome you to the site and show you where to pitch in the 10 acres they have set aside for camping.

With just ten pitches and the two yurts here, to say there’s plenty of space is under-egging it; there’s literally acres of it. Each pitch is a 12-metre round mowed into the longer, surrounding grass (with a fire pit, barbecue grill and picnic bench included) and kids can run free with cars parked in a designated area outside of the field. If you don’t want to pitch a tent, the site’s two yurts offer a "glampier" option. Fully furnished with beds made for a family of four, each has a woodburning stove and private facilities: a camp shower and toilet as well as a covered kitchen and dining area of their own.

There’s not much within walking distance of this rural spot so Matt and Caroline’s little shop in reception is a welcome treasure trove. Local produce sold here includes award-winning sausages and fresh-from-a-local-farm ice cream; what more could you possibly want for a campfire dinner? If you have an answer for that, head to Narbeth or Haverfordwest, both just a few miles away, to stock up on supplies. The walking-distance delights may be limited but come by car and Pembrokeshire pulls in every direction. Just as all roads seem to lead to this peaceful place in the heart of west Wales, they radiate out from here too.

Facilities

There are three flushing toilets and two electric showers within a covered, communal camp area for campers to use. The yurts are kitted out with beds, bedding and a wood-burning stove. They have private toilets and camp (gas-powered) showers, as well as a covered kitchen area with gas hobs, a picnic table, cooking pots and utensils, crockery and cutlery, and a kettle. All guests have use of the communal facilities in the covered camp area which include a washing-up area with two sinks and lots of surface space, picnic benches and tables, a clothesline, shared fridge/freezers, ice blocks to borrow and electric sockets and charging points. The reception area has a few bits and bobs to borrow including barbecue utensils, books and games. There are also locally-sourced barbecue packs, ice creams, eggs (from our own free-range hens and ducks) and honey (from local hives) to buy. Campfires are allowed and each pitch or yurt has a fire pit. Logs are provided for yurt glampers and available to buy on-site too.

The Owner Says

We are a family run site and we are passionate about Pembrokeshire, and enjoying it from the outdoors.  Pembrokeshire is the ultimate outdoor play area - great for young children, adventure seekers and those who enjoy a good trail run, cycle ride or ramble.  We would love to share our enjoyment of Pembrokeshire with you......it truly is a special place. 

From the myths and legends of the Preselis and Landsker trail, to the modern day thrill seeking of coasteering, climbing, abseiling or kayaking, we have experienced much of it ourselves.  And if we haven't, we know how to direct you to someone who has.

​A small-scale, peaceful site deep in the Pembrokeshire countryside, between Narberth and Haverfordwest. Alongside the well-kept and spacious main camp field, there's a small woodland for strolls around the site. Many more top walks can easily be reached on foot – or, if you're after hikes along the Pembrokeshire Coast Path or up in the Preseli Hills, they’re only a short drive away.

Each pitch has a private firepit with barbecue grill and outdoor furniture, with wood, kindling, matches and charcoal handily all available to buy on site. For some extra flavour, feel free to help yourself at the communal herb garden.  Fridge-freezers are available for shared use.
This site may has a low-key, back to basics vibe, but we’ve also got some great facilities like free wifi (at reception), a drying area and – on the chance you need protection from the elements – a covered area.
There's also a small shop at reception where you can stock up on holiday basics, including free-range eggs and local honey, ice creams and barbecue packs, all locally sourced. For more food shops and restaurant options, head 10 minutes down the road to Narbeth or Haverfordwest.
Dogs are welcome to stay here, but please keep them on their best behaviour at all times.

Getting There

From the A40 between Carmarthen and Haverfordwest, take the turn signposted for Wiston, Clarbeston Road and Llysyfran Country Park. It's about three-and-a-half miles west of Robeston Wathen (if coming from the east/M4) and five miles east of Haverfordwest (if coming from the west). Drive up the lane for just over half a mile and turn right after the cottages. Quarry Park is on your right after 300 metres.

The nearest train station is Clarbeston Road, but this is a small request stop with no taxi service so Haverfordwest is usually a better option from where you can take a taxi to site.
