Relaxing tranquil great location and wonderful people
I can’t say enough good things about Dewslake Farm just spent 4 nights camping here. It’s close to loads of amazing beaches. The facilities are great. There’s also a really lovely Vegan cafe on sight which does a top breakfast. I honestly can’t recommend enough, already looking forward to going back.
Handy location, peaceful surroundings, good kitchen/shower facilities etc. Ideal campsite.
Great location and facilities
Great location, close to Tenby and Freshwater East. Camp site was small and not too many people with great/clean toilets and showers. Did not have to que to use any of the facilities. Great overall place
Idyllic setting and facilities
Beautiful space, large plots. We stayed in non electric field in our camper. Flat field trees for shelter. Vegetarian cafe on site with an array of goodies. Clean facilities. We took our firepit and bought logs on-site so the evenings were spent sat by the fire roasting marshmallows. Daily trips to amazing beaches so near to the site. Freshwater East beautiful with amazing ice cream in the car park. Manorbier beach a safe cove next to manobier castle. Barafundle bay, a 20 minute walk from the national trust car park, absolutely stunning once there. Lovely cafe and Ice cream next to car park. Took a trip to pembroke which is an eclectic place of interest. Travelled home via Lamphey Quays which was well worth the trip, with a fabulous cafe and outdoor seating available. We are already planning a few trips back to stay here as there is so much to see and the site suited all our needs with extremely helpful and kind staff. Everything about this site was memorable in a good way. We felt safe as the Covid compliance was extremely good.
Fantastic location, camp field with poor facilities
Positives: - Great location - Great camp field - Great pitch sizes -Great cafe Negatives: - Kitchen facilities - 4 sinks 2 with hot taps with only one that had some warm water. You have to boil kettle 2 or 3 times to wash dishes - Not enough freezer facilities. We had to ice packs taken out and put to one side. we had 2 bottles of water clearly marked up with our name on them go missing. When mentioned to the presumed owner ( as she did not introduce herself) she said they may have been taken out and recycled. when challenged about being marked up all she could say sorry and she could not see what use other people would have (really??) - Not enough showers for 83 plots, 5 good showers 2 useless in original toilet block - Original toilet block is an old construction site toilet block which works and that is it. - Newish but good individual toilets in a construction site cabin ( I work in construction so I know what I see) - No hot water to wash hands in the whole 7 days in newish toilet blocks - Approach down campsite drive looks like dowdy - Facilities look like a construction site - not much of attempt to disguise them. We have stayed on cheaper and far superior sites which have done a great job at this. - No warden walking round policing noisy campers as other site we have stayed. Even though the presumed owner claimed they police it. I was woken on several occasions throughout the night - no number to call to report as other site provide this facility. - Pitches next to noisy road which gets busy before 7am - what is the point of 8am quiet time? - Very messy site - not tidy at all around barn no attempt to hide junk. - Waste point in need of refurbishment. - Too expensive for what is offered on EHU pitch - can't say how much for non EHU pitch We will never stay here agine. I wanted to love this site but there is far too much wrong with it.
Arrived and picked our pitch, as it was Bank Holiday it was fairly busy, but had no trouble setting up(You do have to leave your car in the car park once done) if you're expecting a 5* site, this is more your basic so maybe not for you... We thought it was great, everything you need, toilets, showers and dog friendly! There's also an onsite cafe, which we took the dogs and had a latte, it's vegan friendly and serves food too. We only stayed 2 nights, but explored Freshwater East, Barafundle Bay and Manorbier, so it's ideally located and Tenby is only 6 miles away. The only thing missing is a local shop for supplies and a fish'n'chip shop, we hunted high and low and only found one on our way home!! The only downside is noise, we picked Dewslake Farm for its 10pm-8am quiet time, but this wasn't the case,lots of campers having late night get togethers till gone 12.30am, keeping most of us awake. Plus we had a loud snorer next to us ( not the campsites fault) So, lack of sleep was an issue for us. However, it's a well run site, very chilled and it was great for a little break away.
Family friendly relaxed campsite
We had a lovely 5 day stay in our camper with our 2 dogs. Friendly staff who were really helpful with local information and even going the extra mile to help remove our bikes from the fence when our lock broke! Quiet and peaceful. Facilities were clean and showers lovely and warm. Ideally situated to explore the local area and stunning beaches. Will definitely be back!!
Family friendly, fun and fresh
We really enjoyed our summer mini-break here. We were able to select our own spot and had no other tents either side of us - this added to the relaxed vibe as we could be that bit louder and not have to keep ssshhhing our 2! The staff were very friendly; the grass was cut and the facilities clean every time we used them. It was safe and relaxed enough for our children to use the facilities themselves (a big tick for us being no cars parked up next to pitches!). The ability to hire a fire-pit was a huge welcome so we could star gaze with toasted marshmallows. The on-site cafe was a really lovely touch (with great coffee and hot chocolate) and the live music on the Friday night was a nice touch that added to the general “chilled out vibe” of the place. In the field to the left of us it sounded like all the tents/families had gathered together for a big game of something - such were the cheers - and to hear frivolity and human interaction (given these past Covid months) was really heartwarming… All in all, we found the 9 hour round trip totally worth our Welsh camping experience at Dewslake and would def undertake it again. Great location for beaches (visit to Dobbys grave included) and local amenities. Thank you Dewslake for a special end to our family break!
Beautiful setting at the campsite, loads of space, really good showers, very chilled vibe. Would recommend x
Great place to holiday. Ideally located in beautiful countryside near the sea. The campsite itself was busy but not crowded and the camping pitches were set around the outside of the fields to give space for children to play. We stayed in the glamping hut, it had everything we needed and comfortable beds. Loved the firepit and picnic bench. The toilets were clean, the showers were great. We loved the cafe onsite a great added bonus.
Fantastic beautiful site
Me, my husband and 2 children loved it here! We were camping with EHU. Staff super friendly and location is so beautiful. Showers were hot, nice kitchen area and overall a fantastic quiet place. We will definitely will be returning. Thank you Dewslake
Lovely and laid back
We struggled to find any availability for our camping holiday this summer since we’d left it late to book, so we hadn’t had much choice when picking Dewslake. We were really pleasantly surprised when we arrived - really friendly and helpful staff and a lovely vibe to the place. The kids loved being able to run around the big field and make friends. The facilities are quite basic but as it wasn’t particularly busy while we were there (I guess due to the bad weather) they were perfectly adequate for us and we never had to queue for a toilet or shower. It was a really great spot for our first family camping trip.
Great location. Facilities need upgrading
Easy to find and great location for exploring Pembrokeshire by bike, foot and public transport. Creative and friendly vegan/veggie cafe onsite. Sadly the facilities were very poor. Located in shipping containers with only 5 ‘showers’ and a number of toilets out of action. The number of pitches meant heavy traffic in the facilities, mud, grass & in the end poor hygiene. Limited hot water in the washing up area. Unfortunately due to this when we visit the area again we will choose a different site. No grass was cut during our stay which also didn’t help.
Lovely campsite, the on site cafe with live music on the weekend made it have a lovely festival vibe
Dog friendly campsite, with good facilities including allowing camp fires, and generally a nice relaxed feel. I found the online booking system complex as I was booking for a large group, but when we arrived it was all very easy and plenty of space across three large fields. Great veggie/vegan food in the cafe and we loved the live music on Friday and Saturday night, watch out though, the alcoholic drinks were very expensive!
We chose this site mostly because the availability fitted our schedule - this year you couldn’t be too picky. And what a treat it turned out to be. From firstly staff and an epic cafe with live music, to large open areas for camping (where cars must stay in the car park) so kids can roam and explore safely. It will be hard to find a better camping experience. Thanks again!
Fab campsite for families
Plenty of room to pitch your tent without feeling on top of everyone. We had a non-electric pitch. Lovely site for families, loads of room for kids to play. Much busier than previous years but no extra facilities so more queues for toilets and showers but wasn't an issue but imagine it will be if the sites popularity continues. Great cafe on site and even though none of the family are vegetarian or vegan the food is very good. Will come back again.
Spot on! Friendly, spacious, beautiful, great location.
They’ve thought of everything, we loved that the fields were big and safe enough for kids to play out until they got tired. We loved being able to hire a fire pit to toast marshmallows. Facilities were great and the staff were friendly and organised. We loved having the bubbling cauldron cafe on site, with tasty options for everyone, and a live band on our arrival night was pretty special. Our toddler, who has only ever known a series of lockdowns, had the time of her life. Fab location, a holiday to remember.
Beautiful fun campsite
We had an amazing time at Dewslake :) So family friendly, great facilities and a lovely little Cafe that even serves vegan food! The location was great too, walking distance to the train station and Lamphey village and a short drive to so many beautiful beaches. There was even a pick your own Sunflower field onsite. Would definitely visit again!
Great campsite with a fantastic on-site café
The campsite was easy to find, there was plenty of room to pitch our tent and the amenities were well-maintained. We especially enjoyed the veggie café - delicious brunch!
Dewslake is full of friendly staff, happy to accommodate anything you need. They checked on us in bad weather and kept our tent safe from the wind! The bell tent was beautiful and very well equipped. It had more in it than we needed. The on-site restaurant was full of vegetarian delights which we all enjoyed. We would highly recommend a stay here and next time we’re in Wales we would definitely be back!
Unwelcome, uncomfortable experience.
I have never felt so unwelcome in my life. The owner was ageist and rude. We were a quiet group of young adults hoping for a relaxing stay, but the owner obviously assumed we were going to be loud. She talked down to us, repeatedly gave us unnecessary warnings and all-round made us feel uncomfortable and unwelcome. The location and facilities were great but all ruined by our unfriendly welcome. We stayed in a few different campsites around Wales, and this is the only one where we felt uncomfortable.
Portal cabin amenities
Loads of space for kids to run around, but the toilets, showers, and kitchen are porta cabins which are not really that clean, no hot water to wash dishes so you got to boil the kettle, did enjoy walking around the sunflower field but wouldn't stay there again.
Warm welcome, flat pitches, but facilities could be better
Warm welcome from staff member. Flat fields to pitch tents with ample room to play games. Easy access to nearby beaches and Pembroke. Take away good and drinks available on site. Limited hot water in kichen for washing dishes - had to boil kettles to get hot water. Toliet facilities could have been cleaner and often there was no toilet paper.
Great campsite in a great location!
Really nice campsite with very chilled family vibes. Facilities are good, particularly the showers, pitches are nicely kept and allowed BBQ and open fires as long as they are off the ground. Has a very cute veggie/ vegan cafe onsite with great food. Great location with a pub just 10 minutes walk and Pembroke 10 minutes drive for more shops. Tenby and loads of other beaches/ walks close by. Overall a great campsite and would recommend to anyone wanting a chilled stay somewhere!
Really nice farm, close to lots of good stuff in Pembrokeshire. Super flexible and great veg/vegan food too!
Really enjoyable stay with friendly staff
The campsite was clearly set out. The grass was mowed during our stay. The facilities were cleaned regularly and problems fixed quickly. The kitchen had access to a fridge and freezer and this was useful in the extreme heat during our stay. We enjoyed our visit to the café on site. We enjoyed walking and biking in the local area.
Glamping with a difference
Stayed 3 nights in the bunkhouse cabin (shepherds hut). Fabulous experience. Bed very comfy and hut well equipped for bbq or basic cooking. Pitches all around edge of field so lots of space to play and not be disturbed if a couple like is. Cafe is spectacular and absolutely loved the random music playing. Made us feel like we were in France one day then Spain the next! So relaxing and unusual to hear a double bass playing then an accordion! Loved it! Showers free and cleaned regularly. Great location too. 2.4miles walk to a gorgeous beach. If you’re looking for a full on campsite then this is not the place for you, but if you want a laid back site that lets you enjoy freedom and no ‘jobsworth telling you what you can and can’t do’ then definitely the right place. Worth every penny. Highly recommend the place.
Great camping site
Just came back from 2 nights in dewslake, we had a good time, even with the rain the field wasn’t muddy, but they had just mower the lawn, so there was lots of grass getting stuck everywhere. The bathrooms was as clean as they could be under this weather! The showers are great!
Very gentle staff, even it was raining the site were not mudy, they left sprays to clean every touching area in the bathroons and in the kitchen! There was lots of families in the site! Lovely place about 15 min to Pembroke and 15 min to Temby.
Just came back from 4 nights camping. We were welcome to the site with a big smile, the field was on a slope but was mowed and we were told where to pitch. They advertise for a cafe on site. In reality it was only open when we arrived and that's it. They were still building it! No problem, just don't advertise it! The toilets and showers are not pleasant. The building is old and small or you have it as a portaloo style. Either options weren't pleasant. They could add some bins in the shower building. Some facilities were good: picnic bench near tents, kitchen appliances were available.
Great facilities, friendly staff and lovely grounds.
good space and relaxed site.
We had 3 nights but 2 were very wet. It's grass sites only so lots of grass in van. Showers and Toilet block Ok, perhaps too few if the site is full and a longish walk from the far fields. There is a vegan cafe on site and its easy to walk to the pub 10 minutes along the road. Train and bus travel from Lamphey west and east. It is a spacious site which was nice and a friendly reception. Some wifi if you loiter near the office. A nice site.
Site was great. Staff were friendly, polite and helpful. Facilities were kept clean, plenty of toilets and shower facilities looked modern and worked well. Utilities including electricity and drinking water outlets were close to where we were pitched. Overall 10 out of 10. Would definitely stay again.
Great clean lovely campsite
Great friendly campsite. Very clean and spacious. Thank you for a lovely stay. We will stay again
Relaxing break away
Lovely spacious pitches, good facilities, had a fab weekend with the family, will definitely visit again plenty to see and do in the area. The host was very helpful and pleasant. Only downfall I would say is that its expensive for a few adults to say given you have to pay per adult and not pitch, but overall fab
Fantastic camping site in beautiful countryside
Had three nights on the campsite and found the facility’s excellent especially the clean toilets Each camping space has its own bench and most spaces have an electric hookup . I’m a solo backpacker with a small tent and found the site easily accessible to rail links and buses. The seaside town of Tenby is 8 miles away and the nearest beach freshwater east is 2 miles from the site I also liked the on-site cafe which also hosts musical entertainment at the weekends I can imagine it could get very busy especially in the summer and school holidays so booking ahead of your arrival is a must ..over all a very pleasant camp and stay and would recommend dew lake farm to friends and family
We have just returned from a weekend of camping at Dewslake and had a lovely time. It’s in a quiet, rural setting and has clean facilities. The on-site cafe is fab and offers tasty food and had live classical music on Saturday night that we enjoyed from around our campfire. The pitches are very roomy and not over booked so there was lots of green fields for the children to run around. It’s very close to the pretty village of Lamphey were we had a tasty meal at the Dial Inn. We’ll definitely being going back to stay at Dewdslake.
Lovely spacious quiet campsite
Plenty of space between each pitch, really quiet both morning and night, love the fact that you can have a fire pit and the picnic benches that are available, friendly site, basic facilities, we will be back
Lovely relaxed site. Plenty of space. Basic but clean. Very helpful & friendly manager on site during the day.
Fantastic location, great surroundings, chilled experience
Having chosen this site without knowing the area we were delightfully surprised and pleased with the welcome by the staff, the site, the facilities and it's location. The nature reserve is particularly lovely and should be visited. We will return.
Lovely break in stunning surroundings
We really enjoyed our stay, thank you. Easy to book and book in with contactless check in, but still very friendly and welcoming. We had an excellent pitch with EHU and a water pipe nearby and a picnic bench to ourselves too. The campsite felt relaxed and friendly with lots of families and couples.... but not at all crowded. We will definitely be back xx
Peaceful and relaxing plenty of space
My daughter and I stayed 5 nights along side our friends and we had such a peaceful time. Felt like a holiday much further than just 10 mins away from my home. The middle of each field is left untouched for activities. We always felt quite private too due to the spaces in between each tent (6m). We had our fire pits and a BBQ going. Facilities were cleaned twice daily with fully stocked hand hygiene and toilet roll, plenty of points to fill up on water too. Veggie cafe is delicious and friendly. The hosts were very friendly and made sure everyone was happy. Definitely coming again
Lovely, relaxed site
Cars were not parked on site, which made it feel really spacious and safe. Kids could roam freely. The fscilities were basic but adequate and spotlessly clean. It has a really relaxed atmosphere but was quite noisy in the evening. Pleasant noise of kids playing and adults chatting though not loud music or shouting. Quienened down by 10.30 so not really a bother.
Freedom! Amazing! Best break ever!
We loved our first camping holiday. The kids loved being outside and meeting new friends. We have a hectic lifestyle to the freedom was a perfect escape. The people who work here are lovely and friendly and make sure that all facilities are cleaned several times a day taking into account everything that's been going in with C19. Will defo be coming back. Thankyou for making my daughters first camping experience memories that will last a lifetime x
Facilities are clean and well maintained. The showers are excellent, spacious and powerful. The veggie cafe was so nice, had two breakfasts there. Looking forward to coming back and going to the cafe for evening drinks!
Absolutely lovely! Perfect family campsite
We had the loveliest time at Dewslake Farm! It was a last minute booking and it turned out just perfect. Elly and everyone were so friendly and the campsite itself was calm, relaxing and beautiful as well as being a great location to explore some lovely beaches and countryside nearby. My almost 3 year old daughter was so happy here she didn't want to leave. She made lots of friends and it was such a safe location for her to run around and play, I've never seen her so free and happy! The pizza on the Saturday night was great and the live music on Sunday made the weekend for us :) If we come back to Pembrokeshire we'll definitely stay here. Thanks for having us.
Friendly and chilled
This was our first experience of using our camper van and it was fantastic, the campsite staff are really lovely and nothing is too much trouble. Everything was very relaxed and chilled. Would definitely go back. Thanks for a great stay.
Fantastic week away
Just returned home after a week at Dewslake and we couldnt have been happier with the site. Lovely spacious pitches with bouncy green grass. Going towards the end of the normal season we expected mud and wet as per the usual welsh weather however this didnt affect the cleanliness of the facilities. The showers recently renovated were spacious individual cabins that were spotless. The toilets whilst slightly dated couldnt be faulted for their cleanliness, only comment would be no hot water in the bathroom sinks on our visit. The kitchen was spacious and cleaned daily. The staff were all so lovely from the ladies in the office to the ladies in the cafe. The cafe is ABSOLUTELY worth a visit, vegan/vegetarian food that would satisfy even the most ferocious of carnivorous tastes. All decorated beautifully with the focus being on local made produce. Its an ideal base to get to all of Pembrokeshire, the nearest village is a 2 minute drive, we even forgot our hiking socks and were able to Amazon Prime them to the local post office for the next day! Overall a really fab family campsite, we will definitely be back!
Just got back from an extended weekend at dewslake farm. I would highly recommend this site. The staff were courteous and helpful, facilities clean with plenty of sanitizer and antibacterial spray in the loos and showers. A good clean diet to use as a base for exploring the beautiful pembrokeshire coastline. We will definitely be going back there.
Lovely campsite with plenty of pitches
Lovely campsite, not too busy. Didn’t queue for facilities at all. Very close to lots of lovely beaches and places to visit. Plenty of space for energetic children to run free 👍🏻 Facilities pretty clean, no complaints. Would definitely stay here again. Could do with a few more fire pits as there was none left! We luckily found an old BBQ by the bins and used that (it might be still there as we put it back after!)
Peaceful friendly campsite
We came here on our first camping trip in our VW camper and had a lovely time. It’s a great, simple farm site with lots of space, relaxed atmosphere with friendly. Mostly camper vans and tents and 1 or 2 caravans. We parked up on top of the hill in field B when we arrived as it was a lovely warm and still evening so we had a BBQ and watched the sun set. However, the weather turned the next day and we were getting a bit battered by the wind so we moved to the corner of field A, which was close to the road but it didn’t bother us and we were well sheltered tucked away in our corner. The fields here have a bit of a slope in places so remember to pack levelling blocks. The showers at Dewslake are AMAZING! Really hot, powerful, the shower heads are removable and no push buttons so washing my hair here was easy. It was also lovely to have a really hot shower after walking all day. The showers and the newer toilet block are arranged so that each “cubicle” is actually a sealed room with a door leading directly to the outdoors so you’re enclosed in your own space and they’re well aired out in between uses, frequently cleaned and lots of sanitiser around so we felt comfortable in light of covid. We didn’t want to go exploring in the van so we walked from the campsite to Freshwater East which took just over an hour and had a walk along the beach. We also walked to Pembroke which was another hour-ish walk away, had a look at the castle and the mill pond and picked up some local milk from the vending machine in the bakery. One evening we had an early dinner of handmade pizza from the Bubbling Cauldrons which we enjoyed by a campfire. The fire pits here are £25 for the pit, firelighters, kindling and logs. £10 is refunded when you return the pit. This is cash payment only but you can withdraw cash at the post office in the garage in Lamphey when it’s open. We also had 2 excellent veggie breakfasts from the cafe. Hopefully we will be back for more!
Great glamping experience
In the 5m bell tent. Clean & comfortable. Bed was really comfy & all basics provided. Toilets kept clean & showers were excellent. Also very helpful & friendly staff happy to advise on good places to go. Close proximity with 2 other bell tents but we got on well with out neighbours! Would definitely go again if we are in that area!
Beautifully situated awesome for dogs
This site is in such an amazing spot so many awesome things so close by to see and do, friendly helpful staff, perfect for the dogs, myself and my partner stayed in one of the bell tents and it was so cosy of a night time in the lovely bed with the electric blanket on. Will definitely be going back at some point.
We stayed at the campsite in early September. It was a last minute booking and were surprised there were spaces as other sites were booked up. We were met on arrival by the very helpful receptionist, who walked round with us to help us choose our spot. There were 4 fields to choose from, with ample space, some with electricity. The views were lovely, surrounded by fields and peaceful. The facilities worked well with social distancing as the showers were individual rooms, quite big, with hot power showers and space to hang clothes, as well as a chair, nice and clean too. As the campsite was soon, there was never a queue. Sanitiser available as well. The lovely surprise was that there was not only a cafe on site, but that it did vegan and veggie options which was brilliant. Not sure why this isnt in the campsite info. Anyway this place was a great find and we will be back.
Lovely relaxed campsite in great location
Lovely 4 night stay at Dews Lake. Really friendly staff, ample and good facilities and nice flat pitches with tonnes of choice. We picked the corner of the field behind the willows, which felt like our own space, especially after the weekend campers left. Great location with everything you might want nearby in Lamphey or Pembroke. Really perfect location for exploring the surrounding areas. Thanks for a great stay, we definitely would stay again if we return to this part of Pembs.
Lovely site in a fantastic location
We spent 5 nights at Dewslake farm in early September and had a fantastic time. The site is peaceful and facilities good (although hot water hard to come by in ladies loos and pot wash but showers great). Amazing vegetarian cafe on site is a bonus. Lovely part of the world which we enjoyed exploring and will return to.
Lots of space, great showers and very friendly staff
I visited just after the summer holidays, the showers were excellent and the toilets were great. Lot's of Water taps available around the Fields. When I arrived I was given a choice of Fields to choose from but given some recent wet weather I was advised on where to go and it paid off! Can't park next to your tent but you can drive up and set up, and drive up when you leave so it's not a problem.
Lovely spacious campsite with gorgeous views. Really well located for local beaches and walks. The toilets and showers were always very clean even over the busy bank holiday weekend. Fire pits to hire was fantastic as it was chilly in the evening. The staff were friendly and helpful. My only complaint would be that the site has camping rules - no amplified music and noise curfew after ten, there didn't seem to be a way that the staff were monitoring this. The bank holiday weekend was very noisy until late.
Lovely clean site
Lovely site, clean and friendly greeting on arrival, pitch was good and flat, nice walk down to the nearby village would definitely visit again
A really lovely campsite, great for families. Our children loved playing around the apple trees and toasting marshmallows on the campfire. Thank you!
We had a lovely if adventurous time staying here. We pitched in a side field with some wind protection and sunflowers growing. The toilets and showers were kept very clean and of a good standard. The showers were especially good - lovely warm water and very powerful. The staff were helpful and friendly, although we didn't see any in our field and they didn't seem to walk round and check up how things were going as we've known happen at other sights but maybe we always missed them. We camped through Storm Francis and sadly our brand new gazebo didn't survive and if it weren't for the kindness of our neighbours I think we'd have lost our tent too. Apparently the young woman in the office spent the whole day repegging lots of tents. Sadly we counted at least three tents in the bin and nearby campers left in the middle of the windiest night. In hindsight we were very glad we pitched where we did against the hedges and trees and many other pitches didn't have much protection from wind. People near us had dogs and left quite a bit of poo when they went home. They also ignored the request to park in the carpark and constantly drove up to their tents which churned up the field quite a bit and no-one seemed to remind them not to. Our youngest loved seeing the tractor about and hearing the sheep and cows. He also enjoyed seeing the trains which come past in a nearby track - never very loudly. The cafe looked very nice but we didn't eat there. The location is great and we explored many local beautiful places including Saundersfoot, Tenby and a walk to St Govans Chapel. Other campers were generally very friendly. Overall we had a really good time.
Just got back yesterday from 4 days camping with 2 kids and 2 dogs. It was probably one of the best camp sites I’ve been too and for the past 7 years I’ve only gone on camping holidays! The fields are large and there is loads of space between tents. The set up is very good. Quiet at night. Great showers and the cafe would hold its own on a top high street! Fresh healthy food. You can hire a fire pit for your stay and buy firewood. £20 to hire but this includes a £10 deposit. Firewood is only £5 a bag. The staff and owner are really friendly and helpful. Showers are clean and I never had to queue. It was a great location to set up a base to explore the local area. The only improvement I could think of was the cafe being opened earlier as it doesn’t open till 10am and also a little shop area that you could purchase forgotten essentials like washing up liquid or matches. The beaches are phenomenal and if you have young kids I would highly recommend going to Folly Farm. Probably one of the best of this type of offering for kids I’ve been to. Great for the kids and very reasonable prices once you’re in. Had to drag the kids out of there after 5 hours. Will definitely be returning.
Very friendly campsite!
We felt very welcome at Dewslake Farm...as soon as we arrived everyone was very friendly and happy to help. They helped us park up away from the mud and we had a lovely quiet spot at the top of the field, without being too far from the facilities. Our favourite thing was the on-site cafe...we had delicious ice cream, dinner and breakfast there!
Not too crowded. Good facilities and a laid back atmosphere. Had a lovely time despite the brutal weather!
Very friendly experience
Dewslake farm was friendly and welcoming, lots of space to pitch up and we were surrounded by very friendly campers! The campsite had a beautiful sunflower field just around the corner. The bathroom facilities were clean and sufficient but not the biggest. In addition, recommendation to owners: provide compost bin option!
A great place to stay!
There were 10 of us camping at Dewslake Farm - 4 adults and 6 children and we had an absolutely brilliant time despite Storm Ellen! The campsite is easy to find, beautifully clean and so well spaced out! The fact you can park in the car park is great as it means the fields don’t get too churned up and there is so much space for the kids to run around! We hired a fire pit and roasted marshmallows, which we loved and the field of sunflowers is lovely! The showers and toilets are very clean and We never had to queue to use the facilities. The showers themselves were amazing - better than some I have had in hotels! They were boiling hot and powerful and the shower room was really big, with tons of space. The campsite was central and we were able to use it as base to go into Tenby, little Haven, abroad Haven, St. Florence (for Manor Adventure Park) and Fresh Water. We didn’t get to go to the local beaches due to the weather but from previous visits to Pembrokeshire we know the beaches near this campsite are lovely. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Dewslake Farm and would not hesitate to stay here again!
We booked Dewslake as they seemed to have the last pitche with e- hookup available in Pembs- this is never a good sign. When we called to add more nights we were told that wasn’t a problem and that there had been extra fields added. Great for us but I was worried that more pitches would have been added without an increase in facilities for the extra camper and that this would be a nightmare- we couldn’t have been more wrong. Facilities fab and very plentiful, tonnes of space to stretch out and enjoy generous pitches. The lower meadow was just magical and the cafe was cool- we had pizza one night which was ok, other food looked more enticing. The drinks/ vibe though were the best yet for a campsite. Short walk to Lamphey, great location for the beaches/ attractions- we will certainly return.
What a lovely week!
A truly special place that manages to combine a laid back camping experience with excellent facilities. There are so many places to visit nearby we were spoilt for choice. We will definitely be returning. Thanks!
Fantastic camp site very clean with good facilities
The site is quite central to lots of points of interest. It is immaculately clean with ample facilities available to facilitate social distancing. The whole process from booking, arriving choosing a pitch and leaving was brilliant and hassle. The on-site cafe the bubbling cauldron was also amazing a chance to try different food even though I am not vegetarian all the food was delicious and very well presented the staff were very welcoming and friendly. I also took my two dogs to the campsite it was perfect for them with plenty of walks and fenced off fields on site. Highly reccomend staying at dewslake farm I will be returning.
We were only camping for one night, just a little couple getaway! We arrived and the woman at the desk was lovely. She told us that we could camp anywhere but would recommend the sunflower field. So we pitched up next to a field of sunflowers which was absolutely gorgeous to wake up to! The toilets were clean and there was cold drinking water to access at all times. The kitchen and fridges were also kept spotless. Despite lots of families around the night was extremely quiet. The location is great too, a 15 minute walk to the train station, which takes you right into Tenby, or a 15 minute drive to Tenby (if thats where you wish to go!). Alternatively, there are loads of lovely beaches around too, such as Manorbier or Freshwater East Beach. I would definitely return.
Simple, Effective, Good value for money
Greeted upon arrival Good value for money, and would recommend a visit Plenty of space, flexibility to choose our own pitch Fairly busy facilities but reasonable considering it was a mid summer Saturday Close to beaches and supermarkets - well worth another visit!
Excellent Campsite. Only a few dog issues
I loved this campsite. The location was great, facilities were clean, and was set up for social distancing. We were surrounded by beautiful sunflowers, and the was plenty of space. We had one meal in the cafe there, this was delicious and reasonably priced. The only issue for us was other campers control of their dogs. We have dogs too, and we really happy that the campsite were so relaxed on allowing dogs off the lead, because this meant we could use the empty field to throw the ball for the dogs and allow them to burn off energy. However two families with dogs allowed their dogs to be off their leads all the time. So when walking from the tent to the toilet facilities the dogs (large) would charge towards you barking. These dogs were friendly. However, I still felt uncomfortable the first time theh did it, and for a young child or an elderly camper, this could be really dangerous and frightening. The campers were asked by other campers to put their dogs on the lead, however they refused. I think the campsite would benefit from having a designated place for dogs to be off of their lead, and have dog owners tether their dogs up near their tent all other times. Despite this I would still return to the campsite because it meets all my needs. I would just be weary taking small children, or people afraid of dogs.
Response from Dewslake Farm
Thank you for this review this is really important information for us. I am glad you enjoyed your stay in the main and I am sorry that there was an issue with dogs. We love being able to welcome dogs to Dewslake and allowing them to enjoy the space we have but the human guests are always our priority! I hadn't been aware this was happening. I have asked all staff to remind any dog owners that their dogs must be kept under control and on a lead around the site and I am going to recommend that if people want to give their dogs time off the leads they can utilise the empty fields beyond the campsite (providing there is no livestock). I will also get some signs to remind guests of the rules around dogs and signpost the dog walking field so that they can use that if they want. Thank you for the feedback!
Perfect set up!
This was our first camping trip since being children. Two adults and two Labrador’s exploring Pembrokeshire. Dewslake was perfect in every way!
Simplicity at it’s best!
We had a week long stay at Dewslake Farm this August and loved it! The campsite has everything you need, the facilities are basic but well maintained and staff very friendly! Highlights for us were the showers (no push buttons and power showers!) and the on-site vegetarian cafe! Lamphey is quiet and not really a tourist spot but to escape and enjoy life in the slow lane for a few days this is the place!
Great family site and base for exploring Pembrokeshire
Stayed for a week in August 2020, staff were very friendly and have a hands off approach letting us camp where we wanted in a choice of fields, facilities were decent with good showers. The site has managed to encourage social distancing effectively. Really good cafe on site with excellent vegetarian and vegan food. We'd definitely go back.
It was our first time staying at Dewslake farm and we would definitely return for another stay. The staff were really helpful and polite and made us feel very welcome on our arrival. The facilities here were always kept clean and easy to use. They have done a good job with re-opening after being closed due to COVID-19 and have taken many precautions to keep their guests safe. This included antibac spray in the toilets, hand sanitizer stations, one in one out rules for the kitchen and cafe and lots of signs reminding people to social distance. Overall it is a lovely camp site, very close to lots of beautiful locations and local amenities. We felt very safe and really enjoyed our holiday here! Would definitely recommend 😁
What a lovely week!
Such a lovely campsite, very easygoing but with excellent facilities. I didn't once have to queue for the shower and the loos were well kept and clean. The kitchen has freezers for cold packs and a fridge that campers were welcome to use. It felt remote but was actually very close to local towns and shopping. There are so many lovely beaches nearby we were spoilt for choice every day. Would definitely return!
Peaceful, tranquil and a slice of Welsh heaven.
If you are seeking the freedom of the countryside, let Dewslake farm wash your soul with its charm and beauty. The fine line between wild camping and “battery hen camping” is delicately achieved, allowing those with EHU to be spaced nicely apart and get a good feeling of escapism. For those wishing to distance and not take advantage of the EHU, there are gorgeous fields around to enjoy the benefit of (as we did at our peril; hello new USB jump leads!) The farm is well attended, the fields are mown regularly, the option of firewood and fire-pit was available, the recycling centre was clean and I imagine the facilities, when opened, will be inline with everything else; above par. The cafe is testament to the hard work, with it nicely filled with locals on Sunday morning- which obviously Speaks volumes! James and the family couldn’t have been more hospitable and welcoming to us with our pooch and newborn. Thanks Guys, look forward to next time.
Such a lovely place to stay
It was my first campsite to visit on my Mazda Bongo camper van & it was perfect. I had the choice of the whole place & was extremely happy with the set up. Obviously in the current situation facilities were not available but I was organised & enjoyed my 3 nights. I met the farmer who was so helpful as was everyone else I met. The Bubbling Cauldron Vegie cafe on site is gorgeous. Even m first experience of emptying a portaloo was a pleasant surprise as the chemical toilet was spotlessly clean. I would definitely go back as its such a good spot & convenient for such a lovely area. Myself & my Yorkie Pixie had a great relaxing time & such a positive experience on our first adventure.
Good location and nice site; facilities so-so
Site is in a good location and overall a nice camping site in terms of the fields and space. Electric hook-up was fine and standpipes easy to access. We stayed in our campervan on a grass pitch with electric hook-up, and were given the choice of vacant pitches in our field, which was a nice way of doing things. As in a previous review we only saw the girl in reception when we arrived, did not see anyone else who was visibly associated with the site during our stay, it was hard to find anyone to help. However, the facilities are our main gripe - in our view there are not sufficient for the size of the site when it is busy; using converted shipping containers for toilets and showers does not seem to be the best approach, signs of problems are already appearing; the wash-up facilities are insufficient for the size of the site and hot water is only provided to 2 of the 4 sinks; getting hot water in the showers was hit and miss on occasions; the old toliet and shower block is really not nice. The photos on the website also need updating, most do not reflect the site as it is now.
Everything camping should be
We stayed for a week at Dewslake and loved it (despite the rain). It's in a great location for walks, bike rides and getting to the beautiful beaches and countryside of Pembrokeshire. The site was gorgeous, with everything you need for a comfortable stay, including a communal kitchen and excellent showers (a far cry from the cold, low-pressure trickle I expect from campsites!). The staff were super friendly, and it was great to be able to have a fire and toast a few marshmallows in the evening after a day on the beach. Will definitely come back next time I'm in Pembrokeshire.
Great 'Glamp' experience.
It was the first time we've ever tried 'glamping' and I was really impressed with the cabin. It was brilliantly designed, compact but very comfortable, warm but with enough windows that we could get some fresh air in at night. There was a box with cutlery and basic camping equipment for 4, which has all you need for making a cooked breakfast and a basic BBQ at night. Being regular campers I normally have my own equipment so I missed some of my own essentials, like a sharp knife, a pan to make hot chocolate, and my own washing up liquid, sponge, t'towel, so don't forget those! The field is nice, but next to a main road which can be a bit noisy at night. You get your own fire pit and BBQ and a single stove burner for boiling the kettle. The shower blocks are great - really powerful showers, well maintained. I thought the toilet block was fine until I discovered that I'd been using the old toilets! The new ones were even nicer. The only reason I haven't given this 5 stars is because I quite like peace and quiet when I go camping and also I like a good area for the kids to go play in and this site didn't really have that (but kids made do with running around the field like mad). For location it was good - there's loads to do and see within easy drive. This was our first visit to the Pembrokeshire Coast and I'm sure we'll go back. The owners of the site were really friendly and helpful. The cabins are lovely and clean and definitely worth the money.
It was our first time at Dewslake & we found the location ideal for the beaches we love. The kitchen is good as indoors not just under cover. We had electrical hook up & our own fridge but there was a fridge & freezer for guests to use (although they were packed full). The showers & toilets are a bit dated & could do with updating but functional. The field we camped in was nice & not too full so plenty of room for the kids to play. The rule of only driving onto the site though for setting up & packing up needs enforcing as others did not comply to this. Overall a good experience & we would stay again.
Great location uninspiring campsite
This is in a great location for nearby beaches etc. The campsite itself was a few fields, nothing that made it stand out. I’ve been to far nicer ones. There was a fridge and a kettle in the kitchen that was handy. The office was never open and we never met the owner. It was a bit unfriendly. There were additional new toilets but for some reason these were all locked. The other block was pretty old and dirty. Do t recommend.
It's got fantastic views quite location and fantastic walks
This was our fourth stay at Dewslake fantastic location for walks, fantastic views and not to far from the very busy town of Tenby, you will need to drive in or walk into Lamphey and catch the train its only a ten minute ride and again fantastic views, see you there next year
Dews lake disappoints
Dews lake disappoints, the clever branding lifts expectations, but the facilities are atrocious. There needs to be serious investment if they are to continue to charge the high rates, we paid £10 per adult and £6 per child per night, £32/ family per night. Only 2 out of the 3 ladies toilets worked and there were are only 4 showers. The men's toilets overflowed. There were 4 extra portaloos in the field but they were not serviced so the smell from outside was nasty, and the chemical disposal was either blocked or not serviced so this was full also. Splitters were used to share the electric hook up so many more are on site than the number of advertised hook ups which add to the facility burden. This is a beautiful part of wales, barfundle is 10 minutes away, and Tenby 15 minutes it's a shame the site doesn't cater for its guests as its website promises. On a positive note the Dial inn which is a 5 minutes walk from the campsite in Lampney is a gem, quirky decor, lovely food, very accommodating staff, pool room and beer garden which help when you have energetic kids. Pizza were freshly made and divine, they also would provide a take away.
Beautiful location but facilities sub standard
We stayed at this campsite for some nights. The location is beautiful but the facilities are really too basic. The sanitary facilities were bad . Only 3 ladies' toilets and 2 men's is not sufficient for over a 100 campers. The kitchen was really dirty. Only one sink with hot water. This could be a lovely campsite with some investments.
Perfect Get Away Site
My husband and I stayed for 6 nights in one of the pods recently and were more than happy with it. Kate looked after us very well and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The bed in the pod was very comfortable, my only criticism would be that the ladder is a little difficult to get up and down... The pod was well equipped. I would recommend this site. Nix
Wonderful Relaxing Campsite
This is a wonderful campsite, relaxing, friendly, laid back and beautiful. The cars stay in the car park rule leads to a laid back vibe, with kids and families running around and enjoying the open spaces. The showers manage to be both powerful and hot (you usually get one or the other in my experience) and the kitchen has fridges, freezers and a kettle - again rarely found. The coastal path is a couple of miles away (as is the nearest beach) and the village is 10 minutes walk away. I can't recommend this campsite enough - I will certainly be back
Both me and my boyfriend loved this site. We visited for the Ironman in near by Tenby and luckily managed to watch the cycle route go right past the site. The facilities on the site were superb! The toilets and showers were always clean and well stocked with soap and toilet roll. The kitchen area was also clean and well stocked with a kettle, toaster and a hob.
We will definitely be returning to the site in the future and will also recommend it to friends.
Dews Lake Farm
I'm glad I found this little island of calm close to some of the most beautiful coastline in GB.
I stayed for a (mostly dry) week during early September 2015, pitching up in my small campervan with awning alongside. Although the site slopes along three sides forming a sort of arena it is possible to find relatively level pitches all around. When I arrived, the Shepherds Huts and a few Bell Tents were occupied along with a few tent campers spread amongst the three available fields, the site was quiet and everyone friendly. The facilities were clean with plenty of loo paper and hot showers; the kitchen useful complete with fridges, freezers, kettles, hob and sinks. Bethan runs a relaxed but well managed site, I didn't get the name of the guy who was erecting/dismantling bell tents, etc., but he was friendly and helpful and Bethan's dad is both pleasant and sociable.
For me, a big plus was that just 10 minutes walk down the lane (past the pub / reasonable food) into the village and you arrive at the bus stop and railway station with regular buses into Tenby (£3.90 adult single / 30 minutes) and regular trains into Tenby (£3.50 adult single / 16 minutes) one way and Pembroke (less than 5 minutes) the other. Also in the village are the bakery and a couple of hotels with food/drink plus a petrol station with well stocked Spar shop.
Having my bicycle with me, I enjoyed good rides around the area along quiet lanes and enjoying breathtaking views and numerous cafes, welcome stops after conquering the occasional 1 in 6 climbs!
Dews Lake Farm
We have just returned from a fab week at Dews Lake. Large pitches, friendly, relaxed staff and lots of space in the centre of the field for the kids to run around in. The showers were awesome and the kitchen/fridge/hob set up is a nice touch too, as are the fire pits. The site is well located for exploring beaches and castles - we will definitely be returning!
An excellent place for a few days relaxed camping. We arrived and managed to pitch our tent just before a six day long heavy rain shower but we were exceptionally pleased with the site. A more than adequate number of showers and loos available which in general were hot and clean and without queues - even with a number of overly ambitious hen doers in Wellys and heavy mascara (I wish I had been the one to invent waterproof makeup as I would have made a killing!!). All of the staff and campers were friendly and relaxed adding to the lovely views (even through the rain) making this a gem of a site.
A great campsite and lots of space in August . Tents well spaced apart but the no noise rule seemed to be a little slack as the tent opposite actually had amplified films coming from their tent in the next field . However it did stop quite early . Chilled out vibe but be aware there is a road at the back of the field ... To the left .. Loos need a bit of a clean but showers were incredibly hot .. . And great use of fire pits . Good for dawgs too my two loved it
One of the best campsites I have ever stayed at
Dews Lake Farm has everything - a laid-back feel, roomy pitches, lots of room to run around, and best of all - fire pits for hire. It really takes care of those hours when it's getting dark but it's too early for bed, which can be tough in a tent when you're trying to play card games with an inadequate light. Camping wouldn't be camping without a campfire and marshmallows to toast!
We found all the facilities more than adequate - hot showers (no extra charge), never a queue for the loo, and a very well appointed kitchen. When we were there a takeaway van set up stall for the weekend, and there was also a daily visit from an ice cream van (it was quite entertaining to watch it bonging its optimistic way around the three fields during a rainstorm of biblical proportions!)
Location-wise it is perfect - our teenagers loved Heathertons and Oakwood, both only 20 minutes' drive away, and Tenby is within easy driving distance. We also drove out to Freshwater West where there is an excellent surfing beach (and incredibly managed to park for free on the road right next to the beach).
If I could change just one thing it would be to add a plug socket somewhere in the loo block so those of us with non-electric pitches could use a hairdryer. There is power in the kitchen, but I didn't think people cooking would appreciate me doing my hair in there! It's not a gripe though: this is an excellent campsite, and one I would definitely stay at again.
Lovely chilled out site
We've just returned from a lovely bank holiday weekend at Dews Lake. The site has a really nice, relaxed atmosphere and we really enjoyed our stay. There were lots of family groups staying with kids which can sometimes be annoying if you don't have any but as we were staying on the non-electric field we could choose our own pitch away from any screaming children which was great. There is plenty of space and even though the site was busy it didn't feel cramped. It was lovely just to sit out in the evening and being able to hire a fire pit was fun and added to the atmosphere. The facilities were good, although one sink for washing up meant you did have to wait around sometimes. The hot water ran out quite a lot too, which did unfortunately mean cold showers most days. Location couldn't have been better and it was great not to drive too far to get anywhere. Overall a brilliant weekend and we would definitely stay at Dews Lake again.
My husband and I just spent the weekend at Dews Lake and what a great place to stay. The washing facilities were great, luvly warm showers and the kitchen provisions were also great. This is a very clean well run site and we will definitely be returning.
Fab family-friendly campsite
We have just had a very happy stay at this very pretty, relaxed and friendly campsite.We had a pitch in the electric hook-up field and I loved the fact that once we had unloaded and set- up our stuff, and the car was back in the car park, all the children from round the edge of the field got together and played and ran about in the middle of the field safely and happily - free hula hoops and balls were available. The permanent camping cabins looked lovely too. Didn't see inside the Bell Tents in the non-electric field but spoke to someone staying in one and they were loving it.
It is a great set-up. Bethan (camp owner) is really friendly, helpful & responsive (people previously had lamented lack of showers and now there are double the amount (tip: the ones in the loos always seem to have hot water whereas the ones in new block sometimes run out!; and when we mentioned we would really have found it useful to have access to a freezer for cooling our ice-blocks, Beth said she was about to plug one in and true to her word it was on the go in the kitchen area later that day!
The kitchen is a top spot with additional crockery / cutlery / pans provided for those who have forgotten anything. Also on offer, spare bin bags, recycling bags, local info, and a communal fridge to keep your milk/ butter / wine/beer etc cold. (Washing machine also available).
The location is great too - v near Pembroke, Tenby and heaps of amazingly gorgeous beaches: we went to Barafundle (good sand & swimming, beautiful beach but 25min walk from car park; Broadhaven (our favourite - great sand, sea & rock-pooling); Manorbier (great rock-pooling & rock- collecting); Freshwater East, Wisemans Bridge etc. loads of great castles around too - Carew Castle was lovely. Also good boat trips from Tenby - mackerel fishing, Caldey Island etc.
We rented/borrowed a fire pit and toasted marshmallows - and felt v lucky with sensational weather until Hurricane Bertha hit UK and rained (and blew) heavily on our parade the night before and day we left. We have fallen in love with Pembrokeshire and would definitely come back to Dews Lake again. It was fab!
Can't think of anything we didn't really like - fellow campers were a friendly bunch. Only thing was cold showers but par for the course when camping occasionally.
Holiday fever kicked in as soon as we stepped onto the site. The site looked lovely with bell tents, caravans and small huts, surrounded by endless greenery. The spacious and relaxed nature of the camp site meant we were able to sit out and enjoy the Pembrokeshire sunshine without even feeling the need to jet off out and around the county. Although it was not far to venture out to some beautiful spots and beaches. We were able to cycle to a nearby beach and the adjoining village itself was very quaint and friendly. I recommend taking the local cruiser bus that goes through the village, we were able to stop at several beaches throughout the day by hopping on this service as it takes you right along the coastline. Lunch and diner options were easy to access from the bus stops, we had a fantastic locally sourced lunch from the Cafe Mor stall on the breezy surfing beach of Freshwater West.
Relaxing little campsite
A fab find, away from the hustle and bustle of the busy well trodden tourist path and yet a short distance from Bosherston, (the best beach ever) Barafundle and Tenby. We enjoyed cycling into the Lamphey village for freshly baked bread from Mr White's Bakery. Dewslake Farm is on cycle route 4 perfect for exploring Pembrokeshire. The site is basic but had everything we needed, hot showers, plenty of space, campfires, beautiful views there is even a kitchen area where we had use of a fridge, kettle and washing up area. The owners were friendly and helpful and everywhere on site was kept clean. We will be back!
This campsite was perfect for what we were looking for. It's simple but has all the camping essentials you need - electricity if required plus hot (NB!) showers and toilets which are kept clean and stocked up, even though we visited on a very busy Easter weekend. There were some bell tents too which could be hired which looked lovely and while we were there some fisherman's huts were being built too, which looked very cute and I'd be tempted to head back again to try these! There was a little festival on the grounds while we were there which created a nice atmosphere. The campsite is a short drive to the beach and nearby towns but a car is a must around here. We'll hopefully return soon!
