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.

A genuine, honest camp site with friendly staff and lovely animals.10/03/2020

Reviewer's country: United KingdomGrace M.Confirmed

    The best part of the trip was honesty the genuine owners who offered us their gift shop/cafe to sleep in when our tent got wet. They let us feed the animals with them and really made our stay special, even though we had to leave early.

    I'd read reviews about the facilities being poor but honestly, they were fine. To clarify, there wasn't a portaloo, instead 2 very large rooms, each with a toilet and one with a shower. For a family with young children it would be perfect as there is plenty of 'dry' space for clothes etc, something ive always found scarce with campsite showers.

    Although we didnt get to explore too much, there is a supermarket 5 minutes away and a petrol station just outside for any little bits you may have forgotten - like we did.

    If you want peace, good company, a back to basics family site based on a great farm this is the place for you. Freedom for the kids with plenty of outside play areas, building your own fires in the evening and loads of animals to see and learn about. The cooked breakfasts in the cafe are good too. If you want smart sophistication go somewhere else as this is not what a working farm site is about. Pleased to read that you have plans to up grade the showers and toilets as I felt this was the only area you needed to improve.

Thank you for your very fair and balanced campsite review Shirley.

You're quite right that we are indeed a working farm and it's great that you appreciated that and 'got' what we're all about.

You clearly made the most of everything that we have to offer which includes free admission to our farm attraction during the duration of your stay.

Great value and great location.09/14/2020

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousConfirmed

  • Liked: 

    Great location with easy access off the main road onto a site with level pitches. I asked and got given a quiet spot away from other campers. The showers/toilets are within easy walking distance of the site and having a cafe was a big plus offering excellent food at a good price.

    A 25% "off peak" discount made a well priced pitch even better value. On arrival i was provided a map of the farm/campsite and was given a quick tour of everything i needed to know, eg: shower/toilets location, location of bins and water taps, etc. Staff were friendly and approachable and i was provided a free fire pit and was able to buy logs on site.

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.
