The best camping experience we've ever had
This is our second visit to Little Haven Campsite and we love it so much, I think now any other campsite will be a disappointment! Greg and Alison have thought of everything to make the campsite safe, peaceful, authentic and planet friendly. The pitches are so generous in size and beautifully mown out of the long meadow grass, facilities are really clean and provided us everything we needed and so great that we can recycle everything during the week too. It is a beautiful site and we love the freedom of it. So lovely being able to walk to the beaches but equally, the site is so lovely, we really enjoyed just staying on site too and enjoying the peace and tranquility. Camping can't get any better than Little Haven Campsite!
Just back from another idyllic stay having discovered this wonderful campsite last year. The owners have worked incredibly hard to make everything 'covid ready' without loosing the relaxed and natural vibe of the campsite. It even seems to have its own microclimate as we missed most of the major storms but still got to see the lightening shows and during the day swam in the sea under the 'relentless' Welsh sun. Amazing beaches near by at Little Haven (big shout out to the castle Pub for great food and service) and Broad Haven (endless sand), further afield Freshwater West Bech is worth driving to and for Harry Potter fans it is the location of Dobbie's memorial. Definitely will be looking to return

Generous size pitches in tranquil setting
Just the right amount of amenities for us. Pleasure to wash up outside. Good and funky toilets and showers. Made to feel very welcome. Will definitely be back.
My favourite camp site
We only stayed for the one night but it was enough to know that we will definitely be back. The pitch we chose was so quiet with no one else around, it was blissful. We made use of the free firepit and spent the evening putting the world to rights and star gazing. The shower block is kept clean and with lots of room to move around. We walked to Broad Haven and Little Haven, both amazing places with lots of restaurants and pubs. We will be back next year with our dog who will obviously love the site as much as we did.
Magical - the best campsite ever!
This is definitely the best campsite I've ever stayed on. You get much more space and privacy than the average pitch and they are quite varied - some open, some near woodland, some nestled by a brook. Alison and Greg have thought through the details of what you really need - like space to actually get changed in the shower rooms - without it feeling over managed or manicured. You still feel like you're out in nature with plenty of the natural habitat intact. A lovely fresh veg/eggs stall just up the road and Little Have is a beautiful little village with lovely seafood and a wonderful sandy beach. I can't recommend this place enough!
Friendly, idyllic and peaceful
This is a campsite unlike any we have been to before. Set in a peaceful field with generous plots mown into grass the site is open whilst also giving the sense of privacy. Our 3 children (9,7,3) loved running through the grass and around the field. The facilities are cleverly designed, clean and showers hot. The site is very peaceful and yet still within walking distance to Broad Haven and Little Haven beaches. Sitting under a blanket of stars with a fire in the brazier crackling away is an abiding memory from our holiday this year. We will definitely return.
Walton West a wonderful campsite.
We booked Walton West camp site hoping for a relaxing and tranquil break in a beautiful part of Wales. Walton West exceeded our expectations and was just wonderful. It is all the website says and more, a beautiful site with huge pitches surrounded with boarders of exquisite wildflowers and hedgerows filled with blackberries. Greg and Alison are super people who are friendly, helpful and very relaxed. The facilities are great, super showers in cubicles made from reclaimed wood which allowed natural light, were really clean and warm. The whole ethos of the site is eco-friendly and makes you feel you have made a positive contribution to improving the environment. Little Haven is a very short walk, so pretty with great pubs and food. Pembrokeshire has outstanding beauty, we will definitely go back.
We had such a lovely week at this gem of a campsite exploring the gorgeous Pembrokeshire coast - a perfect spot.
Beautiful, peaceful site within walking distance of two beaches and the Pembrokeshire coast path.
The pitches are like large crop circles mown in the long grass, nicely spread out so lots of space, and cars parked separately so quiet and safe. Lots of fridge space which was great since we were lucky enough to have hot weather. Occasional queue for the showers and washing up sink, but for a busy week in the school summer holidays, not really surprising, and not a problem. A lovely, friendly site, I would recommend it if you like getting back to basics, and we hope to come back one day.
Peaceful retreat near the beach
Humongous pitches separated by long wild grass. Clean toilets, fridges and freezers. Free charging points for phones. Bats come out at dusk. Perfection!
Beautiful setting and great location. We loved our first trip to Pembrokeshire and will definitely be back.
Beautiful, peaceful eco-friendly site
We absolutely loved our stay at Walton West and can't wait to go back! The site is very well designed with incredibly spacious pitches, all in their own individual meadow space. There are lots of little touches to help the experience be as kind to the environment as possible. The site is very peaceful, in a beautiful location and the owners are really helpful and full of local knowledge. Can't recommend it highly enough!
Beautiful campsite - great base for exploring the surrounding coastline
I stayed at Walton West for 4 nights at the start of July with a good friend. We found the owners very welcoming, and really enjoyed being able to use the stands provided and wood, kindling and fire-lighter sold on site to have campfires in the evening. The pitches are mown into the meadow, which in addition to looking very pretty, gave a sense of privacy and meant that we saw lots of butterflies! Great bathrooms - always clean, and it was wonderful to be able to shower in so much natural light! Being able to charge our phones and store our food in the fridges provided was also really handy. Both Broad Haven and Little Haven are easily within walking distance, and there are plenty of other stunning beaches only a short drive away. Walking and driving a long the single track roads to the coast made me a little nervous at times, but it was well worth it to enjoy fantastic walks and paddling in the sea.
Peaceful, beautiful basic campsite within easy reach of Skomer, Marloes and St Davids.
Set in a stunning location with basic amenities but everything you need. There are clean showers and toilets and fridges/freezers to keep your ice packs and food. Little Haven is a 20 minute walk with 3 lovely pubs and a cafe. Don't miss a trip to Skomer Island to see the puffins, best time June/July
Gorgeous coastal stay
This is a gorgeous back-to-basics campsite with big pitches in a stunning sheltered spot. Very clean and spacious showers and toilets, though £1 for a seven minute shower seems a bit steep. There's also no hot water for washing up. Little Haven beach is a 15 minute walk away from the campsite and it's clean and safe for swimming. You can walk around to Broad Haven when the tide is out, too. Little Haven has a couple of fabulous pubs and cafés for food. You can pick any spot along the coastal path for a walk and it's jaw-droppingly beautiful!
Quiet, peaceful campsite with everything you could need
Four nights of peace and tranquility, within walking distance of the beach and coastal path, and with everything I could need meant I had an amazing stay. The pitches are huge, and there are loads to choose from - I would definitely recommend exploring the site before setting up camp. Each site is separated by long grass, giving the illusion of seclusion, and there are firepits and BBQ bricks available to use, as well as wood and kindling to buy. There are several flushing toilets and showers, which were always clean (and £1 for a 7 minute shower was plenty of time) and fully stocked with loo roll. The washing up area was more than adequate, and with cars only allowed on site to unload and pack up, the site was peaceful and child/dog friendly. The location is perfect - just a 10-15 min walk to Little Haven and Broad Haven along quiet country lanes, with the coastal bus stopping even closer. I'll definitely be returning.
Quiet and secluded, beautifully layer out.
Despite the weather not being very clement during our stay, we enjoyed the campsite tremendously. There were plenty of lovely spacious spots for us to pitch and we soon had our bell tent in one of them. We explored the site and it's facilities, which were superb and very clean with most things provided, such as washing up bowls and eco liquid, fire fits and plenty of toilet paper. Logs and kindling could also be purchased from the house and so we had a warming fire for the evening. I would recommend Walton West Campsite to anyone, though wouldn't want too many to know about it! 😘
What an amazing find, tucked away from all the world. We stayed for 5 days as a family of 3 with our teenage daughter and on day one she saw bats flying overhead, toads hopping past and a newt on the tent and we went to sleep every night after campfires and the noise of owls. The night sky here is just something else! A lovely contrast to city living, the toilets and amenities were always impeccable, such wonderful hosts. Will definitely be back. Thank you for a great holiday!
Beautiful and peaceful
I have to give it to Greg and Alison they have a fantastic site here and all the people camping on the week we were there were friendly and really considerate of their fellow campers. We have a family of 5 with two autistic children and found it just lovely, will be returning new year. I thought that honestly logs and kindling was just a nice added to]ouch and the fire lighters were fab. Perhaps Greg you could let me know how to make them. Only niggle is that there is no hot water for washing up. ( maybe we should have thought of boiling a kettle for that !! ) Newbies to camping.....
Fantastic ,relaxing peaceful campstie
The campsite was just what we were looking for ,your own space ,well maintained,and within easy walking distance to the beautiful Pembrokeshire coastline. We were made very welcome by the lovely owners, Greg and Alison. Can't wait to visit again ,hopefully in the not to distant future. We had the most perfect relaxing holiday ,and recommedend this campsite very highly .
Amazingly peaceful campsite
A great place to get away from it all, it's a campsite that makes you feel like you are out in nature but also has all the creature comforts you need (hot showers and even fridge/freezers to store your food). We loved the chance to make your own fire (bags of wood £5.00) and sitting out watching the stars with bats flitting over head was magical. Will definitely be back 10/10!
Wonderful Campsite brilliantly situated in beautiful Pembrokeshire
Great place to go camping! The owner, Greg has done a fantastic job with lovely spacious pitches, the views are perfect and fantastic facilities. The campsite is within short driving distances of some of the best beaches in Pembrokeshire and there's a couple of brilliant local ones within easy walking distance. Very child friendly and a nice atmosphere on site. This campsite has gone straight to the top of our favourites and we will be staying again!
The perfect campsite
We loved our stay so much we have stayed twice this summer. Big enough to have a lovely range of pitches and small enough to feel very secluded. Lovely friendly atmosphere. The facilities are just perfect, hot showers and toilets without taking away the nature feel. The campsite is also the perfect walking distance from beautiful seaside villages. Both times we bought fresh lobsters down by the beach to cook up at our campsite, very luxurious! Would gladly stay again!
We had a great week staying here. Loved the layout of the site with the large pitches separated by uncut meadow. The facilities were good with showers and toilets always clean. Having the use of freezers and fridges was something I have never had camping elsewhere and was really nice touch. It was great to sit around a fire using the metal fire pits which were available for all to use. The campsite is also located in a beautiful area of Pembrokeshire with lots of places to go nearby. The Friendly owners gave the site an easy going atmosphere, what more can I say, recommended!
Absolutely stunning campsite - Cant wait to go back
This is by far the nicest campsite we have stayed on. We have both been camping for around 20 years now and I felt so lucky to have stumbled across somewhere as beautiful as this in such a stunning location. I will keep my review short but list below the reasons why fell in love with this place and will definitely return for a number of years to come. - Each pitch is so spacious. You do not feel crammed in or on top of each other like some sites, meaning that each space felt big and private. In our pitch we had a campervan, awning, gazebo and still had plenty of spare room. - the facilities are ideal with lovely clean showers, fridge-freezers, washing up facilities and nice clean loos. - The local town Little Haven is picturesque and only a 10 minute walk from the site. With three lovely pubs and a stunning beach it was ideal for nights away from camp. - you are only ever a 5 to 40 minute drive to anywhere on the Pembrokeshire coast line. Meaning we used the site as a base and explored some of the worlds best beaches. - the camp site owners Greg and Alison are very friendly and accommodating. We had only booked for 3 nights and ended up staying an extra 5 because we just didn't want to leave. All in all 10 of 10 from us !! We cant wait to go back again next year.
Idyllic chilled camping
My boyfriend and I stayed at Walton West for 7 nights at the end of June. Greg was really welcoming and helpful and when we arrived we were able to choose our pitch from those that were free. The pitches are absolutely huge, and separated by patches of tall grass which helps to create a more private feeling. There are fire pits which are free to use and you can buy fire wood at the campsite, with the camp fires making the evenings feel really cozy and special. The campsite is beautifully quiet and helps you really feel like you’re getting away from everything. It’s only a 15-20 minute walk to Little Haven village where you can swim and there are three lovely pubs. We ate at the Swan one evening and the food was excellent quality. The campsite is also in a brilliant location with regards to accessing the rest of Pembrokeshire. The facilities at the campsite are great, with the showers and toilets always very clean. A £1 coin gives you a 7 minute hot shower which is more than enough time. There’s also plenty of fridge and freezer space which is especially useful in hot weather. We’d definitely recommend Walton West and I’m sure we’ll be back before too long!
Perfect haven in beautiful surrounds.
We found Walton West Campsite within a few minutes 2 days before we were to drive to Pembrokeshire for a well needed break. The price was amazing and the booking procedure easy. We easily found the site and were delighted with everything about it. The description on the website was completely accurate - a simple, quiet site in a beautiful area with good recycling facilities and electricity run from renewable energy. As described it was a pleasant 15 min walk to the coastal village of Little Haven with its 3 pubs and several cafes and close to the Pembrokeshire coast path. Each large pitch was neatly mown with meadow grasses between giving space and privacy and the hedge was full of birds (and bats at night). The rustic wooden shower rooms and toilets were beautifully set up and outdoor dish washing was a pleasure. Everything was clean but simple and small details eg washing up liquid, cloths, hand wash liquid and toilet paper were really helpful. The small room with fridge/freezers, power socket for phone charging and useful local information was very helpful too. We felt that the business was not just there to make profit or attract holiday makers but to blend in with local networks to enhance the life of that part of Pembrokeshire. So we had a relaxing and enjoyable holiday greatly enhanced by our experience on the campsite and would definitely go again.
We had a brilliant time there!
Greg was really friendly, helpful acoomdating and a good laugh! The site is so pretty with long grass inbetween so you feel secluded. It's close to beaches on foot. my favourite thing was all the recycling facilities including food. They've put a lot of thought into this site and you can tell. Even doing the dishss was a joy with a prrfect look out spot. Great for day trips and waking to other beaches too. We will definitely be back! Thank you again.
Back to nature!
We stayed for 12 days at Walton West, 2 families with toddlers. We loved it, and would love to return. The pitches are huge, we fitted 2 family tents on one pitch, with plenty extra space for eating/playing. The facilities are basic, but always clean, and certainly enough for our needs.
Ticked all the boxes
Had a lovely stay at Walton West Campsite. Amenities were clean, spacious, sweet smelling and well constructed. There was plenty of fridge and freezer space. We were able to choose our own pitch and appreciated the long grass between pitches even though there weren't many other people staying there. Would definitely recommend to others
Peaceful, huge nicely spaced out pitches
Just spent a couple of nights at Walton West at the beginning of June. Such a lovely relaxed site with great facilities. So quiet and peaceful at night and felt totally safe for the children to run around as we were encouraged to leave cars in the car park except for loading and unloading. Both the nearby towns and beaches were fabulous - safe and clean and lots of nice pubs etc if you didn't fancy cooking back at the tent. Fire pits and wood easily available, with an honesty box so you could go and help yourself if you find you've run out of wood at 10 pm but not ready to turn in for the night! Pitches are huge - you could easily get a couple of good sized tents on most of them - and beautifully spaced out. Really lovely site, one of my favourites so far and will definitely be returning!
One of the best campsites
Beautiful setting, the field is part of 10 acres of meadow land left to grow, long grasses and wild flowers, the pitches are mown with long grass in between each pitch, which makes you feel you have your own space and separate from other campers. The showers and flushing loos are impeccably clean as is the washing up area, there are recycling bins, fridge freezers and free charging facilities too. Best of all fire pits provided..you can't go camping without a fire. It was wonderful. We went horse riding on the beach at near by Nolton and that was one of best organised stables I've been to too, you get a good ride at a stunning beach. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
Very relaxing campsite!
What a lovely find! Tucked away just inland from 2 great beaches is this rustic, meadow-like campsite. The friendly owner cuts grass pitches out of the long tall grass. There were yellow irises and meadow flowers all around our pitch. The sound of birdsong and the bleating of the lambs in an adjacent field. There's no playground etc and I think this encourages imaginative play. Certainly the lovely children on site when we were there kept us amused with their games! Hot showers (for £1) and a helpful sink with washing up gear made camping life a civilised affair (we often wild camp so this was a treat!). Highly recommended!
Fantastic pitches but found facilities lacking
Recently returned from a 3 night stay at Walton West. As mentioned the pitches are great, they are well spaced and nicely mown giving each pitch a decent amount of privacy. The location is great too, great views, lots of wildlife, not far from the coats but in land enough to be sheltered from the weather. I did feel the facilities were a bit lacking however, what was there is clean and tidy its just there is not enough of them. There are only 4 toilets, 2 of which are in with the showers and 2 showers, When the site filled up there would often be a queue 3 or 4 people deep waiting for either the toilet or shower, in quieter times i am sure this isn't an issue but when the site is full, it was. There was also only 1 sink to wash dishes which was not undercover and had no hot water, i don't mind roughing it a bit when camping but its difficult to wash things properly with no hot water and if its hammering down with rain you get soaked, an undercover washing area is a must. Really loved the location and pitches and would have happily gave 5 stars if the facilities had been better.
What a great campsite! We really liked how the designated pitches were mown, so you get a good sized area to yourself. Toilet blocks are great, and super useful to have fridges/charging. Easy to walk in Little Haven and Broad Haven - great pubs in Little Haven. We saw buzzards hanging out at the campsite - bliss! Greg, the owner is a great guy and could not be more helpful. Highly recommended!
Fantastic Campsite, very relaxed atmosphere, idyllic location!
We stayed 2 nights this May, and would highly recommend this campsite. The way the pitches are marked is a really nice way to keep the place from being overcrowded. Very relaxed atmosphere, and the owners couldn't do enough to help. Walking distance to some of the most picturesque fishing villages, with excellent pubs and cafes.
Superb campsite !
If you looking for a quiet and rural campsite near the coast with no trailers this is the place to go. Nice pitces, mowed as they are grain circles, spacy and privat. The facilities are simple, beachstyle which i like, clean and proper. We stayed here end of june 2017 and we were about the only tent exept for the weekend. The owners are very friendly and proud about the site. They are right, come on over and see for yourself. Grtz from Holland.
Relaxed and magical bank holiday camping
We have just returned from a wonderful three nights at Walton West Campsite over a hot August bank holiday weekend. We stayed on a very large "double pitch" which accommodated our family of 4 and a family of 4 friends (along with 2 Walton West toads who were discovered in one tent when packing up!). The weekend will live long in the memory - warm days exploring the nearby beaches, with clear starry nights spent by the campfire (courtesy of the fire pit provided free of charge by the campsite). The facilities are nice, new and clean. All the essentials are catered for, with 2 showers, 4 toilets, a good washing up area (washing up liquid, brush and tea towel supplied). In addition there are fridges, freezers and phone charging points for free communal use. We all agreed this place has a magical quality. It has been cleverly managed and very subtlety developed by the owners, Greg and Alison, to retain the natural beauty and wild feel of the site, whilst also being practical and compact. This is the best campsite we have stayed in. It also happens to be in a wonderful location for exploring the varied and beautiful local coastline. In the end, our time for doing so sadly ran out. We cannot wait to return, and to discover more.
As a keen, life long, camper this truly is one of the best sites I've ever stayed at! Cool grassy nooks cut out of a meadow create your own personal pitch where you can enjoy long evenings sat around the campfire (available at no extra charge), sipping a cool glass of prosecco (chilled in the on-site fridges provided). Greg and Alison give a warm welcome on arrival and are often seen around the site chatting to campers and providing a friendly touch. The facilities are beautifully clean and always well stocked with the necessary items! The added bonus of a beautiful beach in easy walking distance, local pubs and a small shop make this a perfect getaway from city life.
May 2017 Half Term
We spent 3 nights and 3 days at Walton West during the May 2017 half-term. It was the first proper camping experience for our 4 kids aged between 3 and 9. From the moment we arrived, met Greg and started to set up camp, we knew we had stumbled on a great choice. Although the whole site is set up for convenience, there is still plenty of space and privacy and lots of room for kids to run around and explore. The pitches themselves are nice and big, and we found it an advantage to be able to park our car right on the pitch for extra storage. Plenty of good kindling and wood was available for great fires and outdoor grilling. The washing up area was really useful, and clean, and the fantastic quality and cleanliness of the shower and toilet facility was a totally unexpected bonus. At the end of a day in a wetsuit or in the wind on the beach, and those showers were lovely. Further afield we were really struck with how amazing the beaches were, particularly Broad Haven and the beautiful little bay at Little Haven. The kids happily spent hours a day on both. There were great little pubs, some good seafood and stunning views just about everywhere. The kids were hooked, and so were we. We would absolutely not hesitate to come back here for another break. Really great place!
I have just spent 8 nights at this wonderful campsite! After an unusual welcome from two Canada geese who were protecting their off-spring in a rather aggressive fashion, we quickly realised that we had made the right choice of campsite here in Pembrokeshire. I always think about what my ideal campsite would be like and I have to say that Walton West ticks almost all of the boxes. First of all, the field is enormous and the pitches are extremely big. They are allocated pitches, but there is plenty of space in each of them and they are all mown attractively into the field. The grass separating each pitch is much longer which gives you a feeling of having your own space and privacy which is nice. There is also space to park your car next to your tent which is an advantage for someone like me who has a relatively small tent, so it is convenient to use your car as a storage facility. The facilities onsite are very good as well with 2 toilets and 2 showers (which also contain toilets). This is the first campsite I have stayed at where you have to pay for the use of the showers which I always thought was a bit of a liberty but, having witnessed guests completely abuse hot water in other campsites, it does make sense and I was surprised to learn that 7 minutes was more than enough time for both myself and my partner to shower! The showers and toilets were well-built and very modern and were kept in an excellent state of cleanliness at all times. There was also a huge amount of fridge space (4 fridges I think) which is a major plus for me as I like to cook fairly extravagant meals by camping standards! There was also the ability to charge phones and toothbrushes which is extremely helpful. The site is well situated too and is within easy reach of Haverfordwest where there is a huge Tesco and the attractive village of Little Haven with its picturesque beach and 3 pubs not too far away. If there was one small thing missing, it would only be hot water in the washing up area. I have seen this at some (not many) campsites I have stayed at, although I appreciate campsites aren't charities and some guests might use more than their fair share of hot water. All in all, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this campsite to anyone wishing to explore this area of Pembrokeshire. If I come back to this area, which I would dearly love to, then I would not hesitate to come back here. I hope that the geese will be better trained by then!
Perfect site - loved every minute!
We have just got home from an amazing 8 nights at this site - two units consisting of 4 adults and 4 children (10, 8, 2.5 and 4mths) Always a bit of a risk going somewhere new, but the reviews here really helped. Totally our perfect kind of site - small, unassigned pitches and basic facilities (showers, toilets, water, washing up, fire pits, logs, fridge/freezer, charging points (at own risk), recycling, local info, tide times etc). A couple more toilets would be ideal but they are planned to be put in later this year (2016). Great value for overnight, showers are a small charge (£1 for 6 mins which is ample to shower you and a child!), and log price standard, the rest is all included. Loved the communal fridge/freezer set up which was also a godsend in warm weather (and after a local fishing trip which brought back a lot of fish!). Worth booking, as we did, as they have to turn a few people away at this time of year which keeps it small and spacious. All email comms and in person were lovely - thank you both! Very close (and walking distance by road) to lovely beaches and a cute little farm stall very nearby for fresh eggs and other produce. We loved this site and will definitely be visiting again and recommending to our other camper friends.
The Perfect Campsite!
I have recently returned from a week stay at Walton West with my wife, 2 children and dog and for us it was pretty much the perfect campsite. There is plenty of space and the pitch areas broken up by wide areas of wild flowers and long grass (perfect for the little ones to play in). We thought that we had the best pitch on the site but then when we spoke to other families everyone thought that they had the best pitch on the site as well! This is very much a back-to-basics site. Although there are 3 family sized bathrooms (two of them with hot showers) and a communal fridge there are no electric hook-ups, there is a single sink with cold water for dish washing a and single drinking water to outside of the bathrooms. This basic approach suited us just fine and it also seemed to attract many other like minded campers so we found it to be probably the friendliest campsite that we have ever stayed at. For those who like the old-school approach to camping I can't recommend this site highly enough and we will certainly be visiting again.
I came here with 4 of my friends, we are all 18 year old boys and had a great time. The campsite is a short walk from the beach/small nearby town and has a lot of room to pitch up. It has clean toilets, showers and fridge. We had a great time here and would highly recommend.
Hard to beat
Our recent week away in Pembrokeshire, camping at Walton West, was such a positive experience that it is making life back home rather hard for my 6 year old daughter (and trying for me) who every ten minutes or so wails "I miss Wales! I miss camping!" We were a family of four and even my husband who'd been dreading camping (bad childhood memories) really enjoyed it and would like to return. Walton West is a lovely haven of a campsite in aptly named Little Haven, which perfectly suited our needs. There are three charming geese who seem to have the job of vetting each new arrival before kindly waddling out of the way and back towards the wetland area (pond sounds too manicured-this is a wonderful wild habitat for a wide variety of creatures) allowing our car to slowly wind up the path and meet the equally charming owners, Alison and Greg. This warm and friendly couple immediately made us feel very relaxed and welcome, and had loads of useful tips and information to share. I was impressed with the facilities - basic, but all you need and always clean and well stocked (plenty of loo roll, soap, tidy washing area and bins). An added bonus was the fridge and freezers, which was very handy. The children spent hours playing in the (organic~ yay!) grass, both the mown areas and the left alone long meadow grass, where they would burrow and pretend they were rabbits, or whatever. We loved how quiet it was at night (apart from my husband's out of control snoring) and how free the skies were from light pollution. The night skies were amazing, especially when the moon was low and full. As for the location, it's perfect. As it's not overlooking the coast directly but set back a bit, you are sheltered from strong winds. We thoroughly enjoyed the nearby beaches of Little Haven and Broadhaven, excellent gelato in St David's, exploring Pembroke Castle, but the highlights, at least for my daughter and me, were a perfect sunny day at breathtaking Marloes Sands (15 minutes away) and kayaking at Newgale. A week was not nearly enough at this brilliant little campsite in this amazing part of Wales, and we shall be back for more. Mummy's honour.
camping at its best
This is a really welcoming and charming campsite. Stayed here with my 2 children and dog, and were lucky enough to be there fairly early in the season so had our pick of pitching spots. Incredibly laid back atmosphere at the site, with no designated pitching areas, which was really lovely. The site had everything we needed: toilets, showers, washing up area, a chilled out vibe and beautiful views. The toilets and showers were kept beautifully, and very well stocked. Brilliant night sky viewing too, with mini al light pollution. From the campsite, little haven is only 5minutes drive and has really good rock pooling for the kids, who also went crabbing with much success. Broad haven, again only 5 minutes drive, offers a really good stretch of beach too. Pretty much all the beaches in Pembrokeshire are dog friendly, which was such a bonus for us, and so empty compared to the southern / south west areas of the UK....beautifully clean too. Marloe's sands, about 15 minutes drive, lived up to the hype we'd heard about it being one of the best beaches in the UK. One of the highlights was riding at nearby Nolton stables, which had us cantering on the beach at druidstone (again, stunning beach) on impeccably behaved and well looked after horses. A brilliant week away, and would happily have spent another couple of weeks there. Alison and Greg, the campsite owners, were so friendly, and nothing was too much trouble. I'd recommend this site to anyone who enjoys camping away from commercial and overcrowded sites, for a truly laid back and peaceful experience, and in a really good location to access so many of the gems that Pembrokeshire has to offer, at an incredibly reasonable price. Highly recommended!
