General

  • Pub site a mile from Haverfordwest
  • Folly Farm, Oakwood Theme Park and Heatherton within 30 minutes' drive
  • Excellent amenities

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.

Please note

Facilities/activities including washing machines and tumble dryers are subject to extra charges payable on arrival.

  • Liked: 

    The pitches were a good size and well maintained. The older gentleman who escorted us to the pitch was friendly

    Disliked: 

    We chose this site as it advertises as offering a nice pub with restaurant dog friendly. Therefore we expected these facilities!
    The pub and restaurant were closed for a private party NO food NO pub NO alternatives NO notifications of this on arrival! Unhelpful manager/owner in bar.
    We did not stay the night as the above advertised facilities were unavailable.
    Angry as this was supposed to be a Father’s Day treat ! Expensive re costs n fuel but real dissatisfaction with this place

From the manager...

We are very sorry to hear you have had a bad experience in our restaurant. We get extremely busy at weekends and it is always advisable to book. Had you booked we would definitely reserved a table for you with your dog. Please call if you would like to discuss any issue with us.

    We were extremely happy with the site. It was very well looked after and toilets and shower we're spotless at all times. The site is not big, which is why we picked it The pub also serves fantastic food and as a very friendly atmosphere. Not far from the site you have all the major supermarkets. Will definitely be going back.

    Delightful site ,although small it's well managed ,lovely helpful owners. Pub offers superb food, which arrives promptly ,beer is excellent too!
    Pitch sizes are generous and picnic tables provided which was great. Lovely to have a warm shower room for each and 2 toilets for each gender with a warm laundry/wash up room.
    At the time we visited we didn't experience any delays as the site didn't have many campers.

    The Rising Sun is very well placed to visit lots of brilliant attractions just off the main trunk road to St David's with lovely walks for you and your dog to enjoy straight from the campsite.
    We enjoyed it so much we are planning to return.

    .

    Disliked: 

    Nothing to disappoint if you like an easy peaceful break ,the site is just right ,small but perfect!

Local attractions

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.
