Looking for a pretty pub site in Pembrokeshire close to Blue Flag beaches, a stroll from the Pembrokeshire capital and with the potential for squealy good times at three local theme parks? House your little animals at The Rising Sun Touring Caravan Park and Campsite, only a mile from Haverfordwest, five miles from a stretch of perfectly sandy Pembrokeshire beaches and with Folly Farm, Oakwood Theme Park and Heatherton all within a half hour drive.
The campsite attached to this traditional and very friendly family-run pub and restaurant has just a handful of pitches over its scenic and well maintained two and a half acres, set between the inn on one side and a brook on the other. Standards are kept sky high for the facilities including refurbished shower and loo block: the staff say that some guests have called this the best campsite shower in Wales, so we recommend happily singing numbers from The Animals and their contemporaries as you lather up.
The Rising Sun has another soaring reputation for quality and good value home-cooked meals using locally sourced produce wherever possible, in a newly refurbished restaurant with adjoining lounge bar with Freeview.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

From the A40 Haverfordwest, head south-west towards Cartlett Road. Exit the roundabout onto the A487. Go through another roundabout and continue for about a mile. At the following roundabout, take the second exit onto St David's Rd/A487, and continue for about a mile until you reach The Rising Sun on your left-hand side.
Theme parks, beaches, castles, coast surfing, sailing, fishing, history and heritage are on the doorstep in almost every part of Pembrokeshire – the county has over 50 castles and 50 beaches, hundreds of miles to walk on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and gardens, multiple museums and a good cluster of islands for sightseeing and birdwatching. Tenby is about 20 miles from the campsite and Pembrokeshire’s county town Haverfordwest a mile away with an award-winning farmers’ market, riverside walks and plenty of shops, restaurants and cafés.
Sand fans will find acres of beaches to pick from in the area whether they want to carefully craft sandcastles or get active with surfing, swimming, boating, kayaking or kite surfing: Pembrokeshire has more Blue Flag beaches than anywhere else in the country and the several sandy beaches – and exceptional fishing – of St Brides Bay are only about five miles from the Rising Sun Inn (beaut beaches, places to eat, small villages and means for boat hire are dotted all along the Pembrokeshire coast if you want to venture further). The wide sandy beach of Druidston Haven is the closest to the campsite and allows dogs all year; your mutt’s spirits will rise high indeed.
Near St Brides Bay, take a boat out to Skomer Island from the tiny National Trust-managed village of Martin Haven or the fishing village of Dale for the spectacular and screechy spectacle of hundreds of thousands of chattering birds; Skomer is a National Nature Reserve and is crammed with seabirds such as guillemots, razorbills, the biggest collection of puffins in southern Britain and half the world’s population of Manx Shearwaters. Also look out for inhabitants like the unique Skomer vole, glow worms and seals sunning themselves on the nearby rocks, and for peregrine falcons and kestrels overhead.
The teeny city of St Davids is 14 miles from the Rising Sun and twitchers can access Ramsey Island from here, an RSPB reserve with thousands more seabirds to see; if this might make you a bit board, one of the best surfing beaches in the country is two miles along the coast at Whitesand Bay.
Little animals will be kept happy with the wealth of family attractions within half an hour: the wooden rides of Oakwood Theme Park and the Blue Lagoon waterpark are both at Narberth; fun at Folly Farm and its vintage funfair is in Kilgetty, and sport, activity and adventure among the tree top trail, driving range and maize maze at Heatherton on the outskirts of Tenby.
If you want to travel a bit further it’s easy enough to get from the Rising Sun Inn to other popular Wales destinations like Carmarthen and Cardigan Bays and the Brecon Beacons National Park.
