4m x 8m - All-weather pitch suitable for campervans (max 6m) and tents (max 6 berth) with electrical hook-up and space for car to be parked alongside.
The Owner Says
This all-weather pitch is the smallest terrace pitch, second of 3 running up the side of the site. It measures 4m x 8m with a short narrow, sloping track leading up onto the pitch, where one car can be parked. The pitch base is a mix of re-cycled tarmac chipping and grass - suitable for tents (MAX 6 berth) and campervans (MAX 6m length). *NOT SUITABLE FOR MOTORHOMES* We advise laying a ground sheet under tents to avoid any punctures from the chippings. The main facilities are a short walk up the track. The main entrance leads directly onto the Pembrokeshire Coast Path taking you back into Dale or out towards St Anne's Head. Views from this pitch look down over the grass terrace and adjacent woodland, with glimpses of Dale bay through the trees, and up towards the top of the site across the open space in the middle. It is fenced on one side, providing a boundary along the main drive to the house. *OUR SITE DOES NOT TAKE TOWING CARAVANS*

The location makes off-site activities a bit of a no brainer! The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path runs directly alongside the campsite, with a number of circular walks taking in the local beaches – Dale, Watwick, Marloes – and the site is a mere 450 meters walking distance from picturesque Dale village. On the waterfront, West Wales Watersports (01646 636642) offer tuition and hire of sailing dinghies, windsurfs and stand-up paddle boards. Or, take a short drive to Martins Haven where you can take the ferry out to Skomer Island (01646 603123) and marine nature reserve (15 minutes). Dale Fort Field Studies Centre (01646 636205) run short wildlife courses for all the family (1 mile) and there are local charter boat fishing trips for any budding anglers.
Food & Drink
You don't need to look far. The Griffin (01646 636227) is 400 meters away – an award winning pub offering fresh seafood and an excellently cosy, family-friendly atmosphere. In the summer, there's a terrace outside too. You can also head down to the Dale Yacht Club's restaurant, Coco's Brasserie (01646 636362), which is open to non-members for lunch and dinner (check their seasonal opening times depending on when you're there). The Boathouse Café (01646 636929) in Dale offers simple food at breakfast and lunch times (again, seasonal opening hours) and also has a small shop selling basic supplies. Slightly further away at Marloes Sands is the wonderful Runwayskiln (01646 636545) - National Trust leased cafe (less seasonal hours but good to check opening times)
Like nippers on Christmas Day, you need to be prepared for a very early start to enjoy the gift that is Point Farm Campsite. Book early enough, though, and you can bag a pitch at this teeny, tiny campsite and beat the Pembrokeshire crowds.
We stayed in Puffin Shepherd's Hut for 2 nights. I can't really say enough good things about it. The hut itself was comfortable, clean, roomy (2 people). As it was hot weather, having the kitchen partially open was great, and sitting outside cooking on the firepit was fun. The campsite was very calm and peaceful. Everything we needed, and more, was available. Bring food with you as the nearest shop is about 20 mins drive. The location is excellent; one direction takes you onto the coast path and a tiny beach (15 mins). The other way into the centre, about 5 mins walk, for paddle boarding, pubs, cafe etc. West Dale beach was about a 20 minute walk, although you can get there the long way via the coast path. We're hoping to go back to Point Farm campsite one day.
Point Farm is a special campsite with a small number of pitches giving a unique feel. Facilities are excellent, and lots of additional touches such as brushes for use, a kettle, food waste containers & even a fridge shelf for each pitch. Hosts Nia & Fil provide laid back professionalism, so helpful & available without being in your face. Location is amazing just yards from the village with a great pub (food & beer excellent, esp the Guiness (best in Wales?) & cafe overlooking the sea plus coastal walks from the site. Highly recommended, thanks for a great stay 😊
We’ve just stayed for 4 nights , and I was lovely , it’s a 10 minute walk to dale where we SUP and 15 minute walk to a small secret beach . The campsite was quiet and lovely with beautiful views , and the owners were friendly . Would definitely Recommend. Also the showers and toilets were always kept clean and we had our own shelf in the fridge which was very handy as we have 2 small children.
From Haverfordwest, follow the B4327 to Dale. On entering Dale follow the road along the seafront. Turn left around the front of The Griffin Inn and continue past the pub straight on towards Field Studies Centre. Keep the sea on your left and continue past Dale Yacht Club on your right to follow a road behind some cottages to the left. Point Farm is about 350m further up on the right. The site entrance is immediately left after you have turned onto the drive way.
A local bus service runs daily to Dale village (seasonal timetables) and the nearest trains are in Haverfordwest or Milford Haven.
