General

  • Private streamside pitches in a secluded Welsh valley
  • Close to the coast and Skomer Island
  • Barbecues and campfires allowed; breakfasts and dinners available

What a super little site is Slate Mill Lodge, in a secluded Welsh valley with plenty of privacy for pitching up.

Birdwatchers and nature fans – this Pembrokeshire coast park is for you, as it's near the birsdspotting haven of Skomer Island and within a short drive of the wildlife-laden coastal path to regard puffins, heaps of spring and summer wildflowers, and seals nursing their pups at the end of the summer season. (You'll see all sorts of other species soaring and roaming around the campsite too.)

Beach buffs – this is also a site for you: Slate Mill Lodge is within a mile as the crow flies of at least four peaceful and unspoilt Pembrokeshire beaches for plunging into/onto water: kaykaing, sailing, kitesurfing, diving and windsurfing are all easily accessible from the site. As is fishing, and we think this is the place to point out that Slate Mill Lodge allows campfires and barbecues.

The tent, tourer and motorhome pitches at Slate Mill are alongside its lodge, where guests can dig into the big breakfasts of a morn or dinner of an evening, all utilising homemade, fresh or free-range produce from the Slate Mill Lodge organic garden.

Pitches are along a stream and have plenty of privacy from other campers, and the amenities include a modern facilities block with separate male and female loos and showers, a washing-up area with hot water, charging facilities and use of fridges and freezers.

    Peaceful location. Ideal for visiting the coast, St Davids, Tenby and other attractions.
    Water in showers was nice and hot. Great to sit round the campfires at night watching the stars.

    Great location for Dale, St Annes Head, Broad Haven, Little Haven, Skomer island
    Quirky and individual
    Toilet and shower block cleaned regularly
    Good showers in the men's block, although with a tendency to overflow
    Communal fridge is handy
    Campfires permitted
    The wandering chickens were very friendly!

    Disliked: 

    Our pitch was pretty boggy, if we'd had more rain before or during it would've been a challenge

Great rural site with excellent facilities and friendly owners. 29/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Victoria H. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass tent pitch (large)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The campsite is beautiful, little individual pitches surrounded by flowers and bushes, with a stream running through the middle. The owners have thought of everything; the shower blocks and toilets are clean and the water was always hot when we were there, there are sinks for washing up, a fridge and freezer for campers to use (we particularly loved this!) and solar lighting at night. There is wifi as well, but I can't comment on that because we never needed to use it. Fab!

    Disliked: 

    The only thing we didn't like is that you can't park by all of the pitches, and you have to use a wheelbarrow to transport everything. This is fine if it's sunny, as it was when we pitched up, but not so fun in the rain when we had to pack everything up again! I probably wouldn't have minded if this was mentioned on here, but it isn't. It wouldn't put us off though - we'd definitely stay here again, just bring less stuff!

    Very easy to book especially when ours was quite late in the season.

    Very friendly and helpful welcome, including sorting out a query I raised the day before arriving. Really liked how pitches are set out - easy to pitch tent without impinging on any one else!

    All facilities very clean and not overcrowded at any time in spite of being there over a Bank Holiday.

    Within easy reach to a lot of different places, none of which were particularly crowded.

    Overall a very pleasant stay and my 17 year old daughter felt it has been her best camping experience so far (she had asked to go camping this year as she had enjoyed it so much in the past, including trips abroad).

    Owner and staff very friendly and accommodating and took the time to show guests the site and facilities available.The layout was much to our liking as it offered unusual individual pitches unlike some , and gives a feeling of being truly in the countryside with the bonus of modern amenities available.

Local attractions

Slate Mill Lodge is in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, the only fully coastal national park in Britain and crammed with cragged cliffs, sandy beaches and estuaries – all most excellent locales for coastal walks, swimming, surfing, fishing and other watery pursuits.

Make for Dale a couple of miles from the campsite for a heady introduction to Welsh watersports: the windsurfing and sailing centre here offers instruction in both as well as kayaking and powerboating for all levels, or boat charters and trips are available around the Dale and Marloes peninsulas to try deep sea fishing. Also take a boat out on a deep sea safari around Skomer, Skokholm and Grassholm islands for some of the best wildlife-spotting in the land.

If you're more into padding gently along sands, several are within a few miles of Slate Mill: isolated, quiet and spectacularly scenic Marloes Sands with first-class swimming and surfing; quiet Musselwick Sands with stunning views to St Davids; the sheltered bay of Dale, popular with families and yachters; and sandy Druidstone Haven, where you'll find not only rock pools but a waterfall.

And for walks, the 30-mile Broad Haven to Milford Haven stretch of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path is about 15 minutes' drive from Slate Mill Lodge: the team can arrange pick-ups, drop-offs or packed lunches as required.

  • Pembrokeshire Coast National Park (9.6 miles)
