Grass Pitch (1 at Shortlands Farm)
The Owner Says
The Shortlands Farm campsite is the perfect model of Pembrokeshire camping. We have 16 pitches spaced around the edge of a large field with sea views. The camping fields are backed by traditional hedgerows and slap bang amid the rural beauty of Pembrokeshire farmland.
We are a very friendly, family-oriented campsite off the beaten path. We are not a bells and whistles site, but if you like nature, getting away from it all, stunning views, wildlife and sometimes a bit of weather (!) then we are the site for you. We love sitting out round a campfire but please respect your neighbours and keep noise to a minimum after 10pm.
We pride ourselves on offering a wonderfully relaxing base for your Pembrokeshire holiday. We are 10 minute walk from the golden(ish) sands of Druidston Haven beach and a little less from the renowned Druidstone Hotel.
Unzipping your tent reveals absolutely breathtaking sea views across St Brides Bay to the west. There are stunning sunsets year round over either Ramsey Island to the north or Skokholm and Skomer islands to the south, depending on the season. We are within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and only 5 minutes from the coastal path.
Outside the fields, we have a modern unisex toilet and shower block which has 3 toilets and 3 showers as well as 2 wash-basins both with shaving points. There are also three outdoor sinks for washing-up and fresh drinking water taps in the fields. Hand soap and hand sanitiser is also provided.
There is a chemical disposal point should you wish to bring your own toilet.
About Shortlands Farm
Tents and small campervans ONLY, there is NO electric in the camping field. Small groups and dogs – yes. They also have a separate Caravan & Motorhome Club site for touring caravans and motorhomes. PLEASE DO NOT BOOK A PITCH VIA COOL CAMPING IF YOU ARE IN A CARAVAN OR LARGE MOTORHOME.
Access to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path is 5 minutes from the farm. There are plenty of stunning beaches in the area too, with Druidston Haven the nearest, just a 10-15 minute stroll away. The medieval ruins and seaside charm of St Davids (Britain's smallest city!) is a 20 minute drive away. You'll find a wealth of aquatic activities to partake in here including coasteering, sea kayaking and, of course, surfing. For something a little more sedate, The Gallery at Oriel-Y-Felin (01437 720 386) is worth a visit, while a boat trip to Ramsey Island (01437 721 721) is also an unforgettable experience.
Food & Drink
For fish and chips, The Shed (01348 831 518) in Porthgain takes some beating. The Swan Inn (01437 781 880) in Little Haven is the pick of the bunch for gastropubs with a great line in inventive seafood dishes. The Druidstone Hotel (01437 781 221) restaurant boasts a decent menu of home-cooked dishes and some enviable views overlooking St Brides Bay, booking essential. The bar at The Druidstone Hotel is for guests and members only. The Old Pharmacy (01437 720661) in Solva is a cute little vintage tearoom serving delicious cakes and traditional dishes like Welsh cawl and their famous Pembrokeshire crab sandwiches. For quaint little Pembrokeshire pubs, make the short trip to The Ship Inn (01437 721 247) at Solva – a CAMRA-award winning, harbourside – or The Cambrian Inn (01437 721210) also in Solva. For supplies, the nearest shop is in Broad Haven – either 5 minutes by car or a 40 minute walk along the coast path.
Sea-sickness, scurvy, shark infested waters. If you're not a fan of boat trips you might not like the views at Shortlands Farm. The panoramic vistas of the sea from this laid-back cliff-top campsite are second to none. Don't worry though, you're on dry land and this campsite's not going anywhere.

Shortlands Farm is located at Shortlands Farm, Druidston, Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire SA62 3NE
From Haverfordwest: Take the A487 towards St Davids. Turn left at Simpson Cross (signed Nolton Haven). At small crossroads, go straight over (caravans should be on your left) then turn right into the no-through-road with the cream cottage. Keep going all the way to the end – it turns into an unmade lane and Shortlands Farm is the last property, overlooking the sea.
Train to Haverfordwest, then local bus to Newgale, and Puffin Shuttle bus to the end of the lane at Shortlands Farm.
