General

  • Peaceful site on the Afon Dewi Fawr river, two miles from St Clears
  • Within easy reach of castles, beaches and local pubs
  • Birdwatching and stargazing haven

Lakeside Leisure is a peaceful site centred around a lake and bordered by the Afon Dewi Fawr river, two miles north of St Clears.

The town's restaurants, pubs and supermarket are within easy reach but the site maintains a quiet rural atmosphere where you can relax in natural surroundings. Buzzards and kites often fly overhead, and Canadian geese land on the lake, making this a good area for birdwatching. The lack of light pollution also means you can expect good stargazing on a clear night.

Activities nearby include riding, walking in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and a range of watersports in Pendine. The local area also plenty of attractions to visit, including castles, gardens and museums.

Lakeside Leisure has a clean shower/toilet block for guests' use.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Facilities/activities including kayak hire are subject to extra charges payable on arrival.

The private and secluded island pitch is accessible by boat only. Please take this into account when booking.

    I loved the way they have the pitches on the banks of the lake, the sound and sight of wild birds and animals added to the stay and I couldn't think of a better way to be woken up, then by the wild life on the lake . Lovely place they have done an amazing job to make the place so welcoming.the toilet and shower room were clean and tidy and no different to what you would have at home, I am partly disabled and access was good, and as the couple that own the site were lovely and friendly I am sure they would do their best to accommodate wheel chair users.

    This is a really lovely, quiet campsite, with lots of wildlife to see including birds of prey. Very clean toilet and shower and washing up area. Good location, near Tenby and other lovely beaches. Lovely village nearby with shops and a good curry house!!
    If you enjoy quiet back to basic camping then this is the place for you! We will definitely be back 😀

    Lovely site with easy access and good facilities. Surrounded by trees and with nice even ground you are secluded and comfortable. The lake in the centre of the site provides excellent character which separates this from your standard tent in a field type of site. The owners are very friendly and can provide you with logs and a fire pit for your evening pleasure.

    This is a really lovely small site with lots going for it and with owners who have great plans for improvements in the future. The site was quiet and peaceful and surrounded by nature. The toilet and shower were immaculate and the pitches were spacious with plenty of picnic tables and fire pits around for people to enjoy.
    we really loved our stay and will definitely be back. Thanks for a lovely stay

Great little quiet campsite yet close to amenities 17/06/2018

  • Liked: 

    Location was awesome. Close to local amenities but far enough away for tranquility and quiet. Loads of local wildlife to see. We camped right near the river and had massive dragonflies on our door step every day. Free boat on the little lake. And the young couple that owned it were really nice and friendly. Picnic benches for adults and children next to every pitch and free fire pits. There is only one shower and one toliet and they are pretty much in a shed but they were surprising. They were clean and the shower was lovely and warm. Overall this is a great little find if your wanting something with a bit of character and some peace and quiet.

    Disliked: 

    Only thing was that there wasn't a washing up area.

From the manager...

Thank you for your kind review. We are currently in the process of moving the washing up area so that we can make it more suitable to be used than just one at a time.
We hope to see you again and thanks for choosing us.
All the best
Brad and Lil
