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.

Carousel -Ensuite Grass Pitch
Our 2nd visit to Cowpots and have stayed on the top track and in Tree Field. Can't decide where we'll book for next year as both were wonderful. We love the campsite, the enormous pitches, the pizzas and the great beaches and kids activities. This time we treated ourself to the spa - hot tub/sauna with a view - and so loved it. Think we might have to make that a regular camping thing - was great even in the rain!

We had a wonderful stay at Cowpots. The pitch has so much space and was lovely and quiet. The facilities were great and the onsite Pizza was delicious. If only all campsites were this good.

Fantastic!
We absolutely loved our 2nd trip to Cowpots. Pitch was spacious and clean, really liked having a shelter with large table and benches. Compost loo was easy to use (even with a 5yr and 3yr old in tow!) with clear instructions for check out. We also loved our outdoor shower. Hosts are friendly and approachable, and we really enjoyed our pizza from the cowshed! Thank you so much, we'll be back soon!

We had a brilliant stay at Cowpots. Huge pitches, beautiful views and great facilities. The on-pitch 'en-suite' is great. Really friendly welcome from Amelia and family. Brilliant pizzas at the Cowshed too.

From the host
Situated on Pen Back Farm, Cowpots Camping offer 19 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. Above Tree Field you will find our Top Track Pitches, boasting amazing sunset views over the Preseli Hills. Onsite you will find a Farm Shop Vending Machine (open all the time!) A Wild Spa and a Licensed Pizzeria. We also have 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. Cowpots Wild Spa Welcome to Cowpots Wild Spa! Indulge in pure bliss with our Wild Outdoor Spa Experience, where nature meets luxury.

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).
