About Digs in the Wig

Suitable For

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.

Gem in the Woods

A great base to explore the area from, fantastic camp facilities, with personal composting toilet and hot shower which was much appreciated since we arrived on a rainy, blustery weekend. Howell, also ensured we had plenty of fire wood, while the kitchen area also provides some welcome shelter if needed. The area is very central to Newport, St David's and Cardigan. There are lovely walks within the camping area which are great for families to explore. Llys y Fran reservoir is really close as well. I would definitely recommend going. It's a magical experience. Thank you Howell!

The best campsites we’ve visited 10 out of 10

We had the most amazing week at Digs in the wig. The owners were friendly and nothing was to much trouble. The site was well thought out and everything we could have asked for, the kitchen Sheds are a well thought out extra that provided a space for cooking or storage. It’s was also great having a toilet on the pitch, and also to be able to park right next to your pitch Lots of space for children to play and explore. It was peaceful and relaxed and a great location with easy access to the coast or countryside. We will definitely be back.

A fantastic weekend spent a Digs

We are sadly on our last night here at Digs in the Wig. What a fantastic site. Really relaxing location with private pitches and our own compost loo and kitchen shack - what a luxury. I cannot recommendation this site highly enough. We will definitely be back next year!

Great campsite - lovely stay

Had a lovely stay at Digs in the Wig. Brilliant little campsite. Our pitch was lovely and secluded with a kitchen and eco loo. There are only 5 pitches and are well spread out so a fantastic feeling. There is a nice walk through the woods and the owner (Howell) is a really nice host. All in all it was one of nicest campsites we had stayed in. Would definately come back.

We had a fantastic five days in September at this campsite. It felt like we were camping in a fairytale wonderland in the woods. Such a lovely feel to it. (The nice weather helped I’m sure) I think the privacy of the pitches really contributes to this feeling. Howell really understands hospitality, you are made to feel very welcome and he could not be more accommodating. We have stayed at some lovely campsite’s but have never been made to feel so welcome. Having the kitchen hut was a real treat it was really nice to be able to put all the kitchen things in there out of the tent and have somewhere to stand to cook, I imagine if it was raining that would be more useful. Loved the showers too, so simple. Thank you so much!!
