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.

Excellent stay. Highly recommended.

Howell was an excellent host. Very welcoming. Site is excellent as are the facilities. Was a lovely couple of days away nestled in the woodland. Lovely and peaceful. Not far from lots of different things to do including the beach. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Perfect peaceful camping in beautiful surroundings

Howell, the owner, is very welcoming, and booking communication was easy and stress free. This is the perfect camping experience for you if you’re looking for eco camping with a bit of privacy. It’s quite a unique experience with lovely little kitchen huts per pitch and your own eco toilet. Don’t let the thought of the toilet put you off if you like your creature comforts normally, as Howell has done a top job. They are private and comfortable. The showers are warm and it was lovely to see the sky through the clear roof. We would definitely stay here again. Such a great base to reach lots of the sites.

Super peaceful site

We loved the woods, the wildlife around the place and the peace and quiet. Facilities were spot on and Howell is a star - very responsive and welcoming. Perfect few nights away surrounded by greenery, toasting ourselves by the campfire and exploring the local area.
★★★★★

Fabulous

Excellent stay! We took our VW campervan (there are a couple of pitches where this is permitted), but also had a drive-away awning, and pitched a small tent for our daughter. Having the composting loo was a big plus, and the quality of the shower was way above our expectations. Lovely setting and the owner Howell was attentive, but equally respectful of guest privacy. We would definitely stay again and have no hesitation in recommending this site.
★★★★★

Natural Therapy

If you want wild camping but with a few creature comforts this is perfect. You are in your own private part of the woods and it feels like they are untouched, but equally you can use the compost toilet, the shower, and the outside kitchen, when you need. Was truly idyllic, and hosted really well. Lovely bike rides from site, including the the newly re-opened reservoir where you could hire bikes, or canoes etc if required. Very much recommend.
