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.

Nearby

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.

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.

Fantastic

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!!

A little disappointing

We were lured by the promise of private, grassy pitches. The reality was somewhat different. Gone were the grass pitches as shown in the promotional photos. Instead we were faced with a pitch strewn with bark chippings which made pitching our tent more of a challenge. Our pitch, number 4, was split level with no option to park our car adjacent to the tent. The car parking spot was very muddy which made ferrying our stuff to and fro quite unpleasant. While the private compost loo and kitchen shelter were a bonus, it must be noted that there is no lighting whatsoever so it was fortuitous that we had plenty of lanterns and fairy lights! A simple cup hook in ceiling of the loo, kitchen and shower would have made a world of difference as we could have hung lanterns. Our tent completely filled the pitch which meant we were forever hopping over guy ropes which was tiresome. The owner was friendly on the one occasion we met him and the starry skies at night were amazing but for us these were the only real positives. We felt that at £40 a night it was rather overpriced. We booked for three nights but decided to leave after two as it felt like too much of a struggle. We are seasoned campers and used to a variety of sites but unfortunately this one wasn’t for us.

Response from Digs in the Wig

This is certainly not the way most people feel when they leave our campsite. It is a wild woodland campsite which uses lots of woodchip on paths and pitches. There is no lighting on the pitches intentionally as this would spoil the natural feel of the surrounding area and any star gazing that campers so often do. There is a parking space for a car next to every pitch. With regard to the pitch size this on the booking information. Pitch 4 was designed with a split level to allow for a private dining area. Big families routinely fit on the pitch. With regard to the mud there had been a lot of rain. There is now stone for the parking space. We pride ourself on being avaliable to deal with any issues or concerns that campers wish to raise but to do this we have to be informed of any issues at the time. We are a micro campsite offering an unique and personal camping experience in our beautiful ancient woodland. If your looking for basic field camping this is not us.

Beautiful location - Treetops pitch is amazing!

We loved our stay here and even got to see a Tawny Owl land in the treetops above our pitch (of the same name). We loved the rope swing on our pitch too. Only gripe was that the wood for our fire pit just would not light - we think it may have been a bit wet (?) but we went and bought some logs nearby and then our campfire under the trees was just perfect. We will be back next year - this is a real gem of a place in the wild.
