Idyllic farm campsite with campfires in south Pembrokeshire, 10 minutes' drive from several top beaches

“Easy to get to but difficult to leave”, that’s how owner Charles describe Park Farm Camping. And, when you see the site, as well as the endless list of local options to explore, you’ll understand the struggle. The National Trust beaches, the cosy pubs, the nearby Stackpole Estate… It’s easy to see why he’s so passionate about Pembrokeshire and, with a local like him giving you tips, you won’t spend long deciding what to do each day.

As well as the area, the site itself is a quaint and friendly place. Charles and family are accommodating to guests’ different requirements and go out of their way to make sure your stay lives up to expectations. There are pitches for families with children and a field just for adults, all surrounding a quaint thatched cottage with stable doors and whitewashed walls. Whatever your plans, there’ll be a place where your kids are free to laugh and play or a quiet spot for those looking to chill out. It’s only in the peak of summer that suiting everyone becomes a bit more difficult but, with a maximum of around 50 pitches, the place is never too busy.

To match the classic farm setting you'll get a classic camping experience. Well-behaved dogs are welcome, campfires are permitted and lighting in the area is minimal, so you can enjoy the clear night skies that only somewhere this rural affords. You can also use the time round the campfire to decide how to best spend the next day. There’s a lot to choose from. Firstly, which beach? National Trust-owned Freshwater West (great for surfing), smaller Broad Haven (backed by the beautiful Bosherton Lily Ponds), sheltered Brafundle Bay (only accessible on foot) or popular Freshwater East, all within a 10-minute drive of Parke Farm. That’s not to mention the six different castles in the vicinity or the simple pleasures of walking the coastal path. Either way, however you decide to spend your stay, don’t worry about how difficult it is to leave. After all, it’s just as easy to come back and pick up where you left off.

The Owner Says

Parke Farm’s idyllic location in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park does justice to one of the prettiest traditional cottages in the County. The farmhouse has been stunningly and sympathetically restored with the surrounding fields offering a perfect camping location.

Internationally renowned Broadhaven and Barafundle beaches are ‘just down the road’ Both are accessed via National Trust car parks 4 miles away. Why not meander over to Bosherston village? The Lily pond walk leads directly to the sand dunes at Broadhaven

Parke Farm is ideally situated to explore part or all of the 180 miles of Pembrokeshire’s coastal path. There’s a multitude of award-winning, Blue Flag beaches in our corner of Pembrokeshire. Freshwater West, Freshwater East, and the picturesque village and beaches of Angle are only a few miles away.

Count the steps down to St Govan's Chapel. The tiny stone building has a stunning setting among the limestone cliffs. Local folklore suggests the steps are never the same number on the way back up.

Norman influences on the County are evident with castles at Manorbier, Carew, and spectacular Pembroke |Castle, the birthplace of Henry Tudor.

There’s so much to see and do in South Pembrokeshire. Parke Farm is well laid out and has great facilities. Thank you for considering us for your stay in this lovely area. We look forward to welcoming you to our campsite.

Getting There

If you’re coming from the A477, take the London Road/A477 to Ferry Lane/A4139 for a quarter of a mile then continue on the A4139. After this, take the B4319, Clay Lane and Windmill Lane to the B4319 for eight and a half miles (around 18 minutes). Following this, Windmill Lane turns left and becomes Merrion Cross/B4319. From here continue to follow B4319 and Parke Farm Camping will be on your right.

The nearest train station is in Pembroke, four miles away. From there you’ll need to take bus 387 or 388 to Merrion Cross, but they’re very infrequent and only run four days a week. Taking a taxi to the campsite (about 10 minutes) is the better option.

Perfect first camping trip!

This was our first time camping with our 5 year old twins and this campsite made it a success!!! Great hosts, the twins loved the marshmallows on sticks at night. Toilets and showers are brilliant and cleaned several times a day. Tea and coffee in the morning by the shower block was a lovely bonus! Even a shop which sells everything from bread, meat and sweets to shower gel and sun cream... and not ridiculously priced either. Our field was lovely and quiet at night. Would recommend this as so close to Pembroke and some attractions we wanted to go to!

Idyllic, quiet camp site with super hosts!

We stayed in the on site tourer which had a super comfy king size bed! Charles, and especially his wife, were very welcoming & accomodating! The location is superb with beautiful beaches very close by. The bathrooms are spotless! Very enjoyable stay & would highly recommend!!

Perfect Mini Break

What a lovely find. A quiet, family orientated campsite within easy reach of such beautiful beaches. We were warmly welcomed to the campsite and given free Welsh cakes on arrival. This was a last minute mini break with my husband so we had just the tent and bare essentials. What a lovely treat to learn that there would be free tea and coffee every morning! We stayed in the huge field with no electric. It was a joy to watch the children and dogs playing in the evening. Such a lovely, friendly atmosphere. Toilets were clean and functional. We will certainly be back.

Amazing place to stay

We have just got back from five nights at Parke farm, what an absolutely lovely place to stay. We were a family group of ten spread over three generations and we had asked to have two pitches together ( booked through pitch up) which had got mixed up somehow, but we needn’t have worried Charles and the team quickly sorted us out with a massive corner pitch which was more than we needed. With a water supply on every pitch and beautiful shower/toilet facilities not to mention the free tea and coffee in the mornings all topped off with A nightly delivery of Marshmallows to toast under the stars, perfect. This site is very rural and well suited to those that like the quieter campsite. We will be back soon!

Our best UK campsite experience!

Just returned from 2 weeks at this fantastic site. Huge pitches, drinking water tap in pitch, fire pit, lovely extras such as Charle’s wife delivering huge marshmallows to all campers each evening to roast on the fire pit & free tea & coffee in the morning, lovely idea if you wanted to chat to other campers. Garth, their builder, handyman, jack of all trades, was super helpful & friendly too, lent us a spanner for the surfboard, told us a few off the beaten track beaches to visit & the whole clan made us feel very welcome. There’s no loud music, light or traffic pollution at night, just twinkling stars & the smell of roasting marshmallows. We’re definitely coming back!

Beautiful campsite with super owners!

Absolutely enjoyed our stay here (4 nights). -- Facilities: hot shower, clean toilets, a shop with some meat and essentials, many drinking water taps -- all brill! Super nice touch to provide free coffee and tea in the morning with nice comfy chairs in the area, as well as the welsh cakes upon arrival. The best thing is the firepit which makes a huge difference when the temperature drops at night. Also comes with a free mashmallow -- absolutely highlight of the night! The sky was so clear while we were there and so we see the stars. -- People: I think the people really make this place special. Charles and Tete (I'm sorry if I mispelt) are so so so friendly. They went above and beyond helping us when we were in need. Charles printed some walking routes for us, which was super helpful. Thank you so much!!!!!!!!!!!!

An absolute gem!

Handily placed for a number of beautiful beaches, bays, coastal walks and National Trust’s Stackpole Estate. The pitches were really large, visitors were not crushed it at all. The facilities were clean and the owners and their employee could not have been more welcoming and helpful…if are considering this area we would thoroughly recommend this site.
★★★★★

Warm, friendly and beautiful campsite

We’ve just got back from 5 days at Parke Farm and we had a great trip. The setting was idyllic. The owners were really helpful and Garth was particularly forthcoming in helping us camping novices with blowing up our air bed and lending us a camping chair after ours broke! We loved the little touches such as being able to hire a fire pit and the daily marshmallow treat. The facilities were really clean and we never had to queue. There was plenty of room between each pitch. There is plenty to do nearby and lots of fabulous beaches to explore. I’d highly recommend Parke Farm!

Park farm was easy to find on arrival i went to the office to check in and was given a free pack of Welsh cakes which was a nice gesture and the was taken to our pitch which was very spacious later that evening the owners went around every guest and give them giant marshmallows on sticks which was very nice the campsite is very clean and in a good location and is run by a lovely family who do their best to make your holiday special can’t wait to go back soon

Top camping site!

I like the campsite for many reasons: - Close to beautiful coastal walks - Close to other national trust sites such as lily ponds - Great communal facilities such as toilets, showers and multiple drinking water taps located around the site - Great customer service - Spacious pitch big enough for 8 people or more I highly recommend this camp site if you're looking to stay in Pembrokeshire, would definitely stay here again.

Unforgettable, fun, clean

We couldn't have camped in worst weather, rain rain and more rain but Parke Farm made it so memorable. Arrived to friendly welcome and Welsh cakes- what a welcome! Everything is so clean and well spread out. Toilet facilities all over & amazing hot water for showers. Marshmallows offered every evening- kids favourite! Friendly advise on what to do in the area. We will definately be back.
★★★★☆

Friendly welcome

We had a great stay in Parke Farm. Super friendly owners with two gorgeous whippets! My only criticism would be to have a separate toilets and showers as they get dirty very quickly with people walking in and out throughout the day. Located near some gorgeous beaches.

Really nice site with very well spaced pitches and good facilities. Obviously still working to further improve as well.

Idyllic

An idyllic little campsite with big pitches, toilets in every field, and amazing showers. You get a big pitch and half the field is left empty so it never feels full. Perfect for families or people like us who enjoy the peace and quiet. The owners are lovely and I'd absolutely come here again. Highly recommended.
★★★★★

Warm and friendly campsite with lovely facilities

This is a lovely friendly campsite. Large pitches, plenty of space and new facilities make it a real little gem. A warm friendly welcome awaits and there are lovely touches like tea/coffee provided each morning, and large marshmallows delivered to your tent each evening to toast on the fire. Great location for exploring all the wonderful beaches and attractions nearby.

Perfect getaway

This was our first camping trip in our converted van. The family who run this site are so lovely and not just because they brought us marshmallows every evening! Very friendly and helpful. The site has excellent facilities and the showers were the best I’ve had on a campsite before! It’s in an excellent location not far from a beach or Pembroke itself!

Lovely, quiet and friendly

From the friendly welcome (including the Welsh cakes) it’s easy to feel at home here. A very quiet location with easy access to all the places you could want to visit near to Pembroke. I will undoubtedly be back..

Lovely relaxing family break

We have spent a lovely long weekend with our children at this site. The site is so nicely laid out and the facilities are lovely and very clean, I loved the horse box style it added to the charm of the site. The children loved the extra touches of Welsh cake and marshmallows. The owners are incredibly friendly and thoughtful. We will definitely be back to stay again. Thank you

10/10 but worth 11!

We have never been welcomed at any camp site like at Parke Farm. The Welsh cakes, marshmallows and complimentary tea and coffee were very generous of you. But what impressed us the most was the warm friendly feeling of the camp site and the impeccable facilities! We cannot wait to return!

Fantastic weekend

This was our first camping trip and we all had an amazing time! Apon arrival we were greated and made to feel very welcome plus we were gifted Welsh cakes which was a bonus. There are 4 different fields, we booked into the electric one which was fault less. The site staff were very helpful and friendly, the facilities were very clean and well maintained and such a bonus having showers there. The little personal touches like the marchmallows to toast in the evening just made it that more magical for thr children. Beautiful surroundings with beaches very close by, would definitely recommend and will be returning to this wonderful campsite. Thabk you so much

Loverly 9 day stay

We stayed for 9 nights to enjoy fabulous Pembrokeshire. The site is great. Nice grass pitches, plenty of space for kids to play. Clean showers and toilets in purpose built shepherds huts. Very chilled atmosphere with fire pits tea/ coffee available in the morning and a little shop for food essentials. Owners are very helpful and friendly. Well situated close to fine beaches and coastal path. Would love to stay again. Fall asleep at night to the distant sound of tank fire is a novelty.

Lovely clean site in stunning countryside

In a fantastic setting, less than 15 mins from Bosherston, Freshwater West and Stackpole. This part of the Pembrokeshire coastline is unrivalled. The campsite is clean and divided into four fields with hookups and larger pitches in certain fields. There are wet room/shower/toilets in a block, big outdoor sinks for washing up and a set of separate loos in another field. It is a sedate site, perfect for those who want a chilled out camping experiences. Quiet mornings and quiet evenings, fire pits to hire and great service. The little shop is handy too. The owners bring round giant marshmallows to toast every every evening and have an urn set up to help yourself to tea in the mornings; really lovely gesture. We loved this place. Some reviewers mention the sound of bombing at Castlemartin army range. It’s true that there is a lot of live fire audible from this part of Pembrokeshire; the same can be said of any campsite or cottage along this stretch. It didn’t bother us one bit, the kids just thought it was all a bit exciting seeing the odd big tank go by. I’d say don’t let the idea of it put you off as this area is a joy.

Fantastic stay

This was our first camping trip in nearly a year! We camped for the week with friends and were put on adjacent pitches which was fantastic. The site staff were very helpful and friendly, the facilities were very clean and well maintained.

Beautiful surroundings would definitely recommend and will be returning to this wonderful campsite.

Lovely little get away!

Me and my partner stayed at the Parke Farm for 4 nights from Thursday till Monday over the bank holiday weekend and we really enjoyed our stay! The owners were extremely friendly and very helpful and made us feel very welcome. Only downfalls i would say is that the wifi costs £5 a day or £20 for the week and only works in certain areas which meant when we was using the internet to plan our journey we would have to walk down from our tent. Also, there is no signal in the area so you will need to pay for the wifi. Another thing to note the toilet rooms are also wet rooms where you wash, which some people may feel uncomfortable to use! Overall our experience was lovely and we would come again, thankyou for a relaxing weekend :)
