Camping with 'en-pitch' facilities on a working farm that produces the finest homemade ice-cream for miles
The great thing about camping on farms is that there’s usually acres of space and oodles of rural scenery. The downside can be shared facilities that are a little on the rustic side. But over at Cowpots Camping, they are offering farm camping like you’ve never seen it before. An on-site pizzeria and ice cream parlour and 'en-pitch' toilets and showers make sure of that. The 20 pitches at Cowpots are spread across 18 acres and separated into three fields. Choose a pitch in the biggest one, Tree Field, and in addition to your own private loo and shower, you also get a handy covered kitchen shelter. This field is car-free and the mower has been put to good use here; not only making paths between pitches, but also a grassy labyrinth and an area for ball games and generally hooning about. There’s yet more space for that in an additional 20 acres of fields and 40 acres of woodland that are open for campers to explore. There's a fallen oak to clamber on, hedgerows to follow and a stream to splash about in. Good old fashioned fun that can be capped off by a nightly campfire. Stock up on logs and marshmallows at the honesty shop on the way back to your campfire pit then settle back for sunset, s’mores and satisfied smiles. Accessed via a farm track, the Cowpots meadows are safely tucked away for children to run wild (though it is still a working farm so be aware of tractors) and offer wonderful views of the Preseli Mountains. Though you can’t see the sea, it’s only a short drive away. Vast Pendine Sands is one of the closest beaches. It’s aided by lifeguards in summer and an excellent spot to swim, while Amroth beach is similarly close and has excellent rock pools to poke around in on the western end. Both are good places to pick up the famous Pembrokeshire Coast Path, too, for a walk along the dramatic waterfront that this part of Wales affords. It’ll all neatly work up the appetite again for your return to the farm where The Cowpots Cowshed serves up wood-fire-cooked pizzas along with their homemade, renowned Jersey ice-cream.

Camping in style!
This campsite is excellent. The pitches are very big with amazing views of the Welsh countryside. The ensuite facilities are great especially having your own hot shower! Cowpots is well positioned, only 20mins from Tenby, Saundersfoot, and other beaches. They also have an onsite pizzeria which makes its own ice cream. We will definitely be returning here.

Fantastic eco site with great views
Lovely, well kept and well laid out site with loads of space allocated to each pitch. Individual shower and eco-loo pods with wash up facilities were great. Great dog runs on fields and through trees. On site wood-fired pizzas were delicious, as was the ice cream and Welsh beers and ciders. Really friendly and professionally run, we loved being there and will definitely be back!

Nugget - Ensuite Campervan only
We hired both Frisky and Nugget for a group of 10 and had the best time! The toilet/shower areas are such a good idea. Everywhere is well looked after and spotlessly clean. The owners are lovely and helpful. We're already planning our next trip. Thank you so much!

Thank you to the Cowpots people, for a wonderful week in sun and rain. Quiet, peaceful, relaxing in a lovely campsite. Our first holiday since Covid, and it laid our worries to rest. I can recommend the pizza.

We had 7 nights at Cowpots in early September and it was absolutely fantastic! We had Frisky pitch and the views were stunning. In light of Covid, the huge pitches are perfect and we had so much space and peace and quiet. The compost loo was a first for us but was no problem to use and the shower was lovely and warm. Spending star filled nights sitting round the fire pit was a relaxing end to the day and a real treat. The surrounding area is full of things to do and we had the perfect mix of days out and chilled days on the farm. Wood fire pizza is a must because it is super fresh and delicious!! The Cowshed is beautiful and the perfect place to enjoy your meal along with a crisp Welsh cider. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Cowpots and would certainly recommend to anyone looking for an off-grid, tranquil camping experience. We will be back! Thanks to our hosts who were warm and friendly and keen to make sure we had everything we needed. The perfect escape from a busy life and a much needed bit of R&R.
From the host
Situated on Pen Back Farm, Cowpots Camping offer 18 ensuite pitches for camping in the countryside. We call the lower camping field “Tree Field” because it has a beautiful fallen Welsh Oak tree in the middle of it. It is a huge 11-acre field, the same size as the roof that covers Wembley stadium! This field has only eight ensuite camping pitches and two ensuite campervan pitches. Accessed by a farm track and 600m away from the farm buildings you’ll be sure to find some peace and quiet in the countryside, surrounded by nature. Our new camping fields are called Middle Field and 4 Acre Field. Adding another seven acres to our campsite! Last year (2021) we opened up even more fields for walking, so all our campers now have access to another five fields, 40 acres of woodland and a new designated dog walking field. Pen Back Farm is on the border of Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire so we have excellent access to the delights and sights of both counties and we are only 15 minutes away from the closest beach. Please note we have a two-night minimum stay off peak and three-night minimum stay for the summer holidays. No arrivals on Tuesday and Sunday. No arrivals on Saturdays in the summer holidays.
Nearby attractions
On the Pembrokeshire-Carmarthenshire border, Cowpots Camping offers easy access to both counties. So, whether you're planning a Tenby boat ride, a visit to Laugharne Castle (01994 427906) or a walk on the beach in Llansteffan, the campsite is well placed. Amroth Beach and Pendine Beach are the closest beaches (less than 15 minutes by car) – the former is easily accessed from the road, the latter is a vast sand beach popular that's great for long walks. Llansteffan (30 minutes drive) has a lovely beach, too, as well as it's own impressive ruined castle, while the literature town of Llaugharne is home to the Dylan Thomas Boathouse (01994 427420), where the poet once lived. The National Trust-owned Colby Woodland Gardens (01834 811885; 15-minute drive) and the Stackpole Estate (30 minutes) are both close by, while the harbour town of Tenby has its fair share of history and a great beach too.
Food and drink
The Cowshed (01994 240790) is the farm's fully-licensed, family-run pizzeria and ice-cream parlour that serves the site's own hand-made, wood-fired pizzas and homemade Cowpots' Ice Cream. It's open to the public as well as campers and you can eat in or takeaway to your pitch if you prefer. For a local pub, The Station House (01994 240556) is directly opposite the train station in Whitland, less than two miles away, and The Alpha Inn (01834 831484) is up the hill and in Tavernspite (home to a delicious Sunday roast).
