Dyfed Shire Horse Farm: Great site

General

  • Small family-run site on a working farm, six miles from Newport
  • Free admission to Dyfed Shire Horse Farm
  • Café, nature trail and indoor and outdoor play areas

All ages – and the dog – will be kept delightedly busy on fab little Dyfed Shire Horse Farm at the foot of the Preseli Mountains on a site run by the Lewis family since 1849.

As you might have gathered from the site name, shire horses live here – meeting them and visiting the farm for free is included in your pitch price. The farm is also part of a small visitor attraction, where you can take your pick from horse-drawn carriage rides, tractor rides, bird of prey displays in summer, and stacks to do for small sorts including a roomy play area adjacent to the site, and a spacious and well-equipped indoor soft play area open daily in the summer holidays. A one-kilometre and dog-friendly nature trail runs through woodland and meadow.

Dyfed Shire is on a working farm in a secluded and safe paddock in west Wales, six miles from the coastal path and beaches of Newport and Poppit Sands. It has a farm café (next to the outdoor play area) serving hot and cold food, a well-stocked shop and ice pack freezing. Barbecues and campfires are both allowed.

Toilets and showers are a short walk from the camping field, and include a parent and baby washroom.

Please note

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

Group bookings of 20 or more adults are not permitted (couples and immediate family members excepted).

Onsite entertainment will not be offered due to restrictions imposed by the coronavirus outbreak.

    The farm is fantastic, lots to see and do. Set in a beautiful location, close to stunning coast line.
    Pitches were pretty level, all the staff were so friendly and helpful. Really relaxed feel to the farm. Lots for the kids to do on site.

    Disliked: 

    Shower and toilets were very basic. Showers were hot but lost pressure when the toilets flushed. Only 2 showers on site. But it's a farm sooooo..... Still would benefit from an upgrade.

Local attractions

This is a stunning part of west Wales, with beaches and coastal walks, castles, ancient forts and family attractions all easy to get to.

Less than a mile from the farm in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is the Iron Age archaeological site of Castell Henllys with its Celtic roundhouses and regular events. Even the most iron-willed history resister should be stoked with a day here, where kids can hear ancient tales of the Pembrokeshire people, train as warriors, take the history trail or take part in some of the 80+ activities arranged here each year.

Beach days are a must around here too: if you feel up for it, you can hike six miles from the farm to reach the coastal path at Newport, part of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Path running for 186 miles from Amroth to St. Dogmaels around this part of Wales shoreline.

Family days at Folly Farm, Pembroke Castle, Tenby and Caldey Island are all within 30 miles of the farm.
