General

  • Friendly family-run site within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park
  • Clifftop location with spectacular views and stargazing
  • Toilets, hot showers, washing-up area and hot tub

Have a tiptop stay among stunning scenery and a warm welcome at Hillfort Tipi and Campsite Holidays in Pembrokeshire, a friendly, family-run and eco-friendly site set high on a clifftop within Britain's only coastal national park.

Stargazing, wildlife watching, award-winning beaches, horse riding, quiet country lanes for cycling, and direct access to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path are among the many options easily accessible from this smashingly scenic and peaceful place, along with spectacular sunsets sinking over the Irish Sea, a communal firepit and well spaced-out accommodation with loads of room for all.

And might you fancy a dip in the hot tub while gazing up into the stellar sights of the clear night sky...? There are no street lights for a couple of miles around Hillfort, so the night sky is unpolluted by light and a top spot for stargazing. (If you're here in August, stick around for the glittering meteorite show.)

The site is a wildlife haven, unfarmed for over 60 years and with nature now taking over in a sympathetically managed way: butterfly, moth and bee numbers have all increased, and the wildflowers and grasses on site are all flourishing. Nearby, Fishguard, Newport Bay and further along the coast are well-known Pembrokeshire places for spotting seals, dolphins, porpoises and seabirds.

Shared facilities on site at Hillfort include hot showers and toilets, sinks for washing up and the hot tub, set in the middle of the site.

Several restaurants and country pubs are within a ten-minute drive.

Please note

Dogs are not allowed in the accommodation units.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

This site is part of the Greener Camping Club Association - customers that are currently non-members will be signed up to the club at no extra cost.

Fantastic site in superb surroundings and great host! 05/06/2017

    We Loved our stay here and my six year old son especially loved the surroundings offering him ample places to explore!
    The showers and pot washing facilities were fine for what was needed as were the toilets (even if it did take me a few days to get used to the compost loos!)
    John was fab and was on the go constantly making sure everyone was OK and brought round marshmallows for all the kids!
    We booked an evening in the hot tub and it was LUSH!
    If you want a proper camping experience this is the place to be!

    Disliked: 

    Not really anything to dislike I came with an open mind and ready for a proper camping experience.
    The facilities are basic so if you like your creature comforts and are not willing to give them up for a period of time and liberate yourself from the Internet/Network and Electricity then you may not enjoy it as much as we did.

Beautiful wild site with friendly owners and campfires 25/04/2017

    This is a perfect spot if you like your camping a bit wild. Each pitch has loads of space and privacy and its own fire pit, and it's in a national park so you really feel like you're getting away from everything. Views from the site are beautiful and there are nice walks all around so you don't have to go far if you don't want to. The facilities aren't glam but they're thoughtfully put together and kept clean and tidy. John the owner was so helpful and friendly, and clearly loves this place, which made for a really welcoming stay. They don't over populate the site so you're not surrounded by people, which is great. I had accidentally booked the wrong weekend (!) but they were totally accommodating and found us a spot with no bother. Great place and I would return!

Spectacular clifftop location. Very windy. Helpful owner. Basic. 26/08/2016

  • Liked: 

    This is an amazing campsite in a spectacular location. On a fine day the views are fantastic- out across the sea. There are good walks up onto the hills directly from the campsite and it is close to lots of beaches/St Davids etc. The pitches are fine- lots of room. |You can build fires and fly kites. (Windy!)
    The facilities are basic but serviceable. Portaloos in each field. A portacabin with a washing up sink and kettle for hot water, and a electric shower.
    The owner was very friendly and helpful - happy to dry clothes and offer showers when one broke.
    We really enjoyed it.

    Disliked: 

    Washing facilities a bit basic and could do with more of them.

Directions


From Haverfordwest
Take the A40 signposted Fishguard. Follow the A40 towards Fishguard (follow the ferry signs). When you reach Fishguard, at Rafael roundabout take the first exit onto the A40 signposted Goodwick (again following the ferry signs).

At Windyhall roundabout take the first exit onto the A40. At the next roundabout take the second exit onto Station Hill signposted Goodwick village centre. Turn left onto Quay Road and continue forward onto Goodwick Hill. Continue forward onto Heol Penlan; carry on up the hill and out of Goodwick. Stay on this road for about four miles, passing two signs to Strumble Head on the right.

After the second road sign to Strumble Head, you will come to a white church/chapel on your right. Take the next right and turn: signposted Hill Fort Tipis and the Camping and Caravanning Campsite sign.

Local attractions

Coasteering, caving, hiking, climbing and horse riding are popular picks for local land-based activities; on water, there's the surfing and kayaking at award-winning beaches like Newgale and Whitesand, and kayaking nearby at spectacular Fishguard Bay.

If it's wildlife you're after, you've come to the right Welsh place: Hillfort is close to several spots for birdwatching and nature spotting trips, such as the boat trips to spot seals and dolphins in the likes of Newport and St Brides bays, or around St Davids Peninsula and the wildlife havens of Skomer and Ramsey island.

Seabirds, blazes of purple heather and possibly marine critters in the waves below can be seen with a hike along part of the 186 miles of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, running from St Dogmaels in the north of Pembrokeshire to Amroth in the south.

You can access the path directly from Hillfort to hike the few miles to Fishguard; from here, the so-inclined can go on for 12 miles to Newport and the very hardy 14 miles from there to the end of the path at St Dogmaels. No to all that? Catch the mighty handy coastal bus instead.

Must see

  • St Davids Cathedral (12.2 miles)
  • Pembrokeshire Coast National Park (22.0 miles)
  • Pembroke Castle (23.7 miles)

National Trust

  • St David's Visitor Centre and Shop (12.6 miles)
  • Stackpole Estate (27.2 miles)
