A small and peaceful wildlife haven, 10 minutes' drive from the beach

Looking for somewhere undiscovered? Why not go covert? As the name suggests, this small farm has a suitably hidden setting, ideal for guests looking to unwind in a wildlife haven. Home to a wide variety of birds and wildlife and set beside a Site of Special Scientific Interest, we don’t know how this campsite has managed to stay covert for so long – we’re just glad we discovered the secret.

In a tranquil paddock tucked behind a stud farm in rural Pembrokeshire, it doesn’t take long pitching up here before you start to unwind from everyday life and connect with nature. Swathes of the meadow are left long and unmown, attracting butterflies and fledgling birds, and south-facing views are over reeds and bushy hedgerows. To maintain the peaceful nature of the site, amplified music is not allowed and there’s a ‘quiet time’ after 10pm. Not that there's ever much chance of the place getting noisy; with just 30 camping pitches and a furnished bell tent it never gets too busy.

Facilities-wise, all the basics are covered without too many extra frills. The toilet and shower block has hot running water and washing-up and, as long as they’re in firepits (available for hire), campfires are very much encouraged. Ultimately, though, it’s the space and the natural setting that really make the place stand out. That and it’s proximity to the best of the Pembrokeshire coast – it’s a 10 minute drive to Tenby, 10 to Saundersfoot Bay and a little over 15 to Manorbier.

You needn’t always rush off to the beach though. Cross the B-road by the campsite and follow the county lane to an old 12th-century church and the village of Jeffryston, where there’s a pub and bistro (which doubles as a shop by day) all of about 10 minutes’ walk from your tent. It’s a sleepy spot compared to the excellent eateries in Tenby. Covert, you might say. But hanging out somewhere quiet after a good day at the beach is exactly what this campsite is all about.

This is an amazing little site, so chill, so good for star gazing and wildlife. Sleep better here than at home. Run by lovely people with good standard amenities. Couldn't ask for more.

Peaceful
Third time visiting this campsite, we love it hear. Owners are very welcoming, we came as a party of 11 and three grass electric pitches. Pitches are a fantastic size. Shower facilities are continuously improving this time with a new shower block new from last year. Warm water and clean always. We will of course be back again next year for our fourth visit. Highly recommend for families close to everything you'd want to see in Tenby.

Lovely quiet site, with big pitches and clean toilets but let down by the awful showers. In 9 days I managed 3 intermittently lukewarm showers and they were stone cold the rest of the time. For that price, I expect to be able to have a hot shower in the evening/morning.

Basic camp site, location just ok
Frances, our host, was lovely. The site has a lot of rewilding and makes it more pleasant than it would otherwise have been, The facilities were average: although the toilet block did have shower rooms, they were a bit basic. Location means that there is only one pub that's really in walking distance and even then part of the walk is on dangerous roads. Nearest food shop is several miles away. The extended family next to us (3 pitches) were very noisy and kids were allowed to play around our pitch. We mentioned this to the owner, but not sure what was really said to the family.

Hide away here for as long as you can. Covert Farm Camping is a family-run haven next to a Site of Special Scientific Interest, home to a wide variety of birds and wildlife living among reeds and trees… and it's only 10 minutes' drive from this splendid spot to the spectacular Pembrokeshire coast. The owners have set the site up to be a peaceful getaway for guests who want to unwind in a wildlife haven. The farm is surrounded by fields for leisurely walks away from roads too, and a huge amount of family days out are close by: Saundersfoot and Tenby beaches, Heatherton, Folly Farm and Manor Wildlife Park are all within 15 minutes' drive. Gratified former guests have approved most fervently of this lovely little site, hailing the friendly team, the spotless amenities and the setting among other aspects. Campfires are encouraged too as long as they're in firepits: these are available for hire, along with firelighters, logs and kindling to buy. The toilet and shower block has hot running water and washing-up facilities.
Nearby attractions

Covert Farm has the perfect location for exploring the beauty of wider Pembrokshire, particularly it's southern coast. Saundersfoot, a 10-minute drive away, is one of the most visited holiday spots in Wales, home to an award-winning beach where you can enjoy activities such as canoeing, water skiing and wind surfing. There are two more fabulous beaches (north and south) at Tenby, along with the ruins of Tenby Castle, boat trips to Caldey Island (07980864509) and the Tenby Dinosaur Park (01834845272). If you're here with children, try a visit to Folly Farm Adventure Park and Zoo, while two other famed Pembrokeshire theme parks are also within 10 minutes: Heatherton World of Activities (01646652000) and Oakwood Theme Park (01834815170).

Food and drink

Just up the lane, a five-to-ten-minute walk from the site, is the Jeffreyston Inn (01646651394), a family-run pub and bistro that also operates as the village shop. The Begelly Arms (01834812601) is a five-minute drive away and there’s also a good Indian, Chinese and traditional fish and chip shop within five minutes’ driving distance. If you're looking for a romantic evening meal out, then the fine dining at the Stables restaurant (01834843318) in Tenby is tough to top, set in an old coaching inn between the medieval town walls and now an up-market, contemporary restaurant. For all your extra bits and pieces the local Co-op is a five-minute drive away.
