The Owner Says
About Digs in the Wig
Campers, glampers, tents, campervans, well behaved dogs and considerate, quiet groups – yes. Caravans, big motorhomes and noisy folk – no.
Half a mile down the road from the farm is the reservoir of Llys y Fran Country Park (01437 532273), a good spot for a picnic and with a 7-mile trail around its perimeter that is great for trail running and mountain biking. This is just the start of the outdoors fun, of course. Digs in the Wig is located amongst the Preseli Hills and, if you head north out of the campsite, there are ample excellent hiking trails. Be sure to visit the hills' highest and most characterful pub (Tafarn Sinc, see Food & Drink) along the way. There are plenty of pretty towns to intrigue. Narberth has a lively arts scene and is 25 minutes by car, while it's a scenic half hour to Cardigan and 40 minutes to St Davids, well worth a visit for its cathedral, as well as the independent shops and cafés. If you love the cathedral, it's well worth checking out Pembroke Castle (01646 681510; 40 minutes) too – the medieval castle is set on the river Cleddau and the birthplace of the Tudor dynasty (Henry VII) – as well as Castell Henllys (01239 891319; 30 minutes), an Iron Age-style encampment in the woods, and Melin Tregwynt (01348 891225; 40 minutes), a working woollen mill that makes beautifully crafted Welsh textiles. Of course, you'd be a fool to come to this part of the world and not visit the beaches that make Pembrokeshire so famous. It's 25 minutes to the coast around Newport and Fishguard, half an hour to St Brides Bay (and the beaches of Newgale, Broad Haven and Little Haven) and 40 minutes to Saundersfoot and the beaches around Tenby.
Food & Drink
The nearest shop is a couple of miles away in the village of Maenclochog. It's a small village store – Sarah's (01437 563272) – and has a post office and the essentials you need at camp. There's a café in the village too; Caffi'r Sgwar (01437 532078) is in a zinc-clad building, serving homemade cakes, tea and the best sausage butty for miles. A couple of minutes further by car, Tafarn Sinc (01437 532214) is a seriously characterful and cosy little pub with woodburning stoves, saw dust strewn floors and a place for your mucky boots. It is the highest licensed pub in Pembrokeshire, located in the shadow of Foel Cwm Cerwyn. Other options are more of a drive away. It's 20 minutes to The Dyffryn Arms (01348 881305; sometimes just called 'Bessie's' after the owner) – a hidden gem in the Gwaun Valley where beer is served in jugs through a wooden, sliding hatch and worldwide bank notes adorn the walls from customers near and far. Other good pubs include The Grove (01834 860915), a fancy gastro number on the outskirts of Narberth, The Golden Lion (01239 820321), a more traditional spot with plenty of menu choice, and The Druidstone (01437 781221), on the coastal path overlooking Druidstone beach – great for sunsets. All are 30 minutes by car.
