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.

Brilliant
Fantastic campsite. Gorgeous views and well kept pitches. Loved the covered picnic areas. Composting toilet surprisingly easy to use. Lovely hot shower. We had pizza which was also delicious. Will be getting our trip for next year in the diary soon! Thank you!

Nice big camping space with a lovely view across the valley. Worth bringing a wind breaker if cooking on the fire pit provided. Private shower was lovely and hot. Totally recommended.

Thyme - Ensuite Grass Pitch
Superb Stay
Really great site, unique. Lots of space to roam, wild flowers and views. The enpitch facilities are great and worth paying that but extra for. The hots are lovely folks, really putting love and care into what they do. Yoga and pizzas on site are a great addition. Highly recommended family fun

Carousel -Ensuite Grass Pitch
Camping in Wales!
We stayed at cowpots farm for four nights. We loved the spacious pitch and the cabins with our own hot showers and toilets. my boys (12 and 2) loved running around and even helped taking things to and from the pitch with the wheelbarrows. The views were beautiful. The pizzas and the icecreams from the restaurant were fantastic. Martin was very helpful. We loved our stay and hope to come back next year.

Cowpots campsite was brilliant, each pitch was massive and the private shower/loo huts were great. Our kids loved walking down into the woods, playing in the stream and running round the grass labyrinth. The pizzas and ice cream at the Cowshed were the added bonus on top.
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. ***NEW FOR 2023!*** Welcome to Wild Wellbeing at Cowpots Camping! Indulge in pure bliss with our Wild Outdoor Spa Experience, where nature meets luxury. Our outdoor sauna and hot tub provide the perfect escape from the stresses of daily life, while our cold plunge pool invigorates your senses. Relax in our calming outdoor space, listening to the soothing sounds of nature, and leave feeling rejuvenated and refreshed. Open to guests on site, our new Outdoor Spa experience will be open for public bookings and exclusive group hire. Spa experiences can be booked along with Hatha Yoga classes, retreats or 1 - 1 sessions. Please book early for this!

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).
