General

  • Pub site a mile from Haverfordwest and five miles from the coast
  • Folly Farm, Oakwood Theme Park and Heatherton within 30 minutes' drive
  • Excellent amenities; restaurant on site with home-cooked meals

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 beach and with Folly Farm, Oakwood Theme Park and Heatherton all within a half hour drive.

The site 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.

The restaurant is open between 01/01 and 31/12.

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

Disappointing attitude from the owner on hot water - penny pinching.10/12/2020

  • Liked: 

    It was easy to find and pretty quiet - we were the only tourers on site. It was a convenient location for exploring St. David's and St. Bride's Bay.

    Disliked: 

    The owner refused to turn on the hot water for the washing up facilities and toilet block. The water wasn't even switched on for the bloke's showers. We asked the manager about this and he said that the owner wasn't going to switch it on since we were in a campervan and should be self-sufficient. I wouldn't mind if this had been made clear before booking; we would have booked elsewhere with that info.

    Also, we booked because this was a site with a pub - the pub was shut the first night we were there.

    The pub was onsite and looked lovely although we didn’t use as cooked o. Bbq. Owners were friendly and site clean. Friendly chickens wander around the site.

    Disliked: 

    Noisy busy road very close to site, only 1 ladies shower and pressure poor if washing up and someone was using shower.
    Some old long term shabby vans parked up. Very limited WiFi only let me use 2 hrs and said I’d used my quota?? Quite expensive compared to other sites with more facilities/views/location.

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 site 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 site 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 Whitesands Bay.

Must see

  • Pembrokeshire Coast National Park (13.5 kilometers)
  • Pembroke Castle (16.3 kilometers)
  • St Davids Cathedral (19.4 kilometers)

National Trust

  • St David's Visitor Centre and Shop (19.6 kilometers)
  • Stackpole Estate (21.9 kilometers)

Cycle routes

Find local routes on the National Cycle Network - over 12,000 miles of cycling routes.
