About Dragonfly Camping

Suitable For

Glamping only. Pets not permitted. Minimum age (8 years old) for children in the Kingfisher floating cabin.

Nearby

Dragonfly Camping is within walking distance of the Cleddau Estuary. The ancient woodlands that overhand the edges of the creeks are a treat for family walks – there’s a short, spell-binding trail through Lawrenny Woods, starting at the boatyard on the Quay. Holly and Rowan trees grow beneath the canopy and there’s wood rush, heather and bilberry carpeting the ground. Little Milford Woods, meanwhile, is owned by The National Trust and borders the village of Hook. For an interesting walk, go down to the bottom of Pill Road and take the old miners' drove road over to Lower Quay Road. You can access the waterside here if you are fit and have good boots. Dragonfly Camping is also within 15 minute's drive of several blue flag beaches and the historic towns of Tenby and Pembroke (each with a castle). Manorbier Castle (01834 871394) is also worth a visit – a well-preserved 12th century gatehouse where life-size wax figures in costume are dotted about the place. From the turret windows you get great views down to Manorbier’s surfer friendly beach. For families, Manor House Wildlife Park (01646 651201) is decent – kids love getting up close and personal with the Lemurs, Wallaby's and Meerkats; youngsters are also invited to help feed the goats and sheep.

Food & Drink

Strike out on foot for a pint at Cresswell Quay (01646 651210) or a short drive will take you to the Lawrenny Arms (01646 651367) or Lawrenny's Quayside Tearooms (01646 651574) for locally sourced food. Further afield, the award winning Café Môr (07422 535345), a seafood shack based at Freshwater West beach, is well worth a stop or head into Tenby for a wide variety of good restaurants and pubs.

Lovely secluded spot in a great location.

Stayed in the Kingfisher - which floats on the edge of a beautiful lake. It’s on a working farm but is tranquil, private, and secluded. The accommodation is clean, comfortable, and characterful - with strong emphasis on the amazing views, and an absence of modern intrusions such as TV and WiFi. The hosts were very welcoming - and kept us stocked with ice packs for the cooler. Lots of interesting places nearby with the amazing Pembrokeshire coast a 15 minute drive away, and many castles, and pre-historic sites to explore. Had a wonderful trip and loved swimming and canoeing in the lake, while watching the abundance of wildlife.

A lovely time away.

It is the most peaceful and relaxing place we have ever stayed. If you are going to the dragonfly I 100% recommend staying in the kingfisher as you are on the water. We were lucky with the hot weather and it was stunning. You have everything you need in there, be aware it is the minimum of things but it’s all you need. The pub up the road is lovely also and has a nice outside seating area. If you are looking for a place to stay to unwind and to get away from TV and phones and all the other hectic things in life go here. Will be re recommending to everyone I know and I will be returning.

Wonderful stay

I had a wonderful few nights in the cosy Shepherd’s Hut. The Welsh cakes and fresh milk were a lovely welcoming touch. Every detail had been thought of - it was perfect. Sitting out on the porch listening to the birds as the sun set was just wonderful. The bed was so comfy - I slept like a log. I will be back to visit again as soon as I can!

A cosy little cabin with a lot of lovely touches

We stayed in the Shepard's Hut for two nights at the end of September. The hut itself was super cosy and had everything you would need (coffee maker, pots, pans, a coolbox etc). I would advise anyone trying out the 'bush bath' to be patient with the process of getting it up to heat - but it was totally worth it in the end! Bathing under the stars and listening to the sounds of the owl calls was magical (we even saw a shooting star!). The shower in the separate horsebox was functional, though the trips out to the loo left us with chilly feet (would advise bringing wellies and a dressing gown). Altogether a lovely remote getaway with access to the unbounded beauty of the area, would definitely recommend!

Peace and tranquility in abundance

This is a very special place . 4 girls at Kingfisher in September - it exceeded our expectations . The double bed was so comfortable, the lake bracing for a swim but worth it. To eat outside under the verandah and just talk about life - just unbelievable. We shall return - thank you.

Getting There

From the A40 take the A4075 towards Cresselly. At the top of the hill turn, right onto Millway lane. At the bottom of this lane, turn right and go over a little stone bridge, carrying straight on at the next bend and following the sign for 'Chris Buzzard Bushcraft'. Pass the Bushcraft site on the left and keep going until you see a Greener Camping Club sign on the left hand side. Go down the farm track, through a gate and turn right, passing a small quarry on your left. You'll see the shepherd's hut in the meadow on the right before you come to the end of the track. If you're coming from the other direction on the A477, you turn right at the Carew roundabout onto the A4075 and then left towards Whitehill – this will bring you passed the Cresswell Quay pub and then over the little stone bridge mentioned in the directions above.
