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.

    Nice and peaceful with great scenic views on a Shire Horse Farm. Horses are stunning and live like royalty! It's a shame that there was heavy rain and wind as this deters visitors to this wonderful place. Facilities are basic but very clean and tidy and we had a warm welcome when we turned up. Due to the storm in the area, the owner gave us the option of staying in the courtyard or the barn but as I am allergic to hay, this was not an option for me, but we did have a fairly flat pitch in the corner of the field which was surrounded by trees and bushes which gave us a lot of shelter from the wind.

    Good farm site, child friendly with lots for them to do. Good location close to Cardigan, Newport beach and Fishguard. Very easy to find. Horses and donkeys are beautiful and a rare Suffolk punch has been added to the group. Gorgeous breakfast in cafe. All in all a good place to stay.

    Disliked: 

    We were the only campers on site so the toilet/shower were fine, think they may be in high demand if site was full.

The following morning was donkey brushing, horse and cart right, all the children’s play areas..we both had bags of fun and would definitely return .

    Friendly welcome and tour of the farm and facilities, play area for the kids who were straight on the trampoline. Several areas with different activities kept then busy running around playing, they especially liked the sand pit and the crazy golf. Lots of fun playing frisbee and cricket on the large open field we were pitched in. We all spent ages enjoying the company of the shires in the yard and the fields.

    Disliked: 

    The toilet and shower could do with cleaning and repairing.

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.
