Idyllic farm campsite with campfires in south Pembrokeshire, 10 minutes' drive from several top beaches
“Easy to get to but difficult to leave”, that’s how owner Charles describe Park Farm Camping. And, when you see the site, as well as the endless list of local options to explore, you’ll understand the struggle. The National Trust beaches, the cosy pubs, the nearby Stackpole Estate… It’s easy to see why he’s so passionate about Pembrokeshire and, with a local like him giving you tips, you won’t spend long deciding what to do each day.
As well as the area, the site itself is a quaint and friendly place. Charles and family are accommodating to guests’ different requirements and go out of their way to make sure your stay lives up to expectations. There are pitches for families with children and a field just for adults, all surrounding a quaint thatched cottage with stable doors and whitewashed walls. Whatever your plans, there’ll be a place where your kids are free to laugh and play or a quiet spot for those looking to chill out. It’s only in the peak of summer that suiting everyone becomes a bit more difficult but, with a maximum of around 50 pitches, the place is never too busy.
To match the classic farm setting you'll get a classic camping experience. Well-behaved dogs are welcome, campfires are permitted and lighting in the area is minimal, so you can enjoy the clear night skies that only somewhere this rural affords. You can also use the time round the campfire to decide how to best spend the next day. There’s a lot to choose from. Firstly, which beach? National Trust-owned Freshwater West (great for surfing), smaller Broad Haven (backed by the beautiful Bosherton Lily Ponds), sheltered Brafundle Bay (only accessible on foot) or popular Freshwater East, all within a 10-minute drive of Parke Farm. That’s not to mention the six different castles in the vicinity or the simple pleasures of walking the coastal path. Either way, however you decide to spend your stay, don’t worry about how difficult it is to leave. After all, it’s just as easy to come back and pick up where you left off.

Upper Park East - Non Electric Grass Pitch
Charles is a very accommodating site owner and has thought of lots of additional benefits for the comfort of his campers. Toilets and showers are small but clean lots of hot water. There is free tea and coffee in the morning with wifi at a communal area where campers can discuss the weather and there are flower beds to decorate the communal areas. There is a well stocked convenience shop where campers can freeze their ice blocks or store small amounts of food in a fridge.

Upper Park East - Electric Grass Pitch
Nice marked out pitch areas. Not over crowded Toilets/showers were always clean and showers were hot!
Staff were very friendly and helpful
Met lots of lovely people and my boy enjoyed playing with the other children.
Free morning tea and coffee was a lovely touch
However it could be loud sometimes because of the army base over the road but this wasn't so much in the evenings

Chancel Green - Electric
This is a lovely campsite with a beautiful thatched cottage in the grounds. Massive pitches and friendly owners.
Some feedback on improvements:
- shower block - there's only one so some of the pitches have a bit of a walk to get to if you are in the far fields
- wifi - is available but expensive and only covers part of the field so if you're going and expecting connectivity you can pay but have to be within the area. If you're wanting to be off grid then no worries but many people had to come to sit in the tea/coffee station to get on
From the host
Parke Farm’s idyllic location in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park does justice to one of the prettiest traditional cottages in the County. The farmhouse has been stunningly and sympathetically restored with the surrounding fields offering a perfect camping location.
Internationally renowned Broadhaven and Barafundle beaches are ‘just down the road’ Both are accessed via National Trust car parks 4 miles away. Why not meander over to Bosherston village? The Lily pond walk leads directly to the sand dunes at Broadhaven
Parke Farm is ideally situated to explore part or all of the 180 miles of Pembrokeshire’s coastal path. There’s a multitude of award-winning, Blue Flag beaches in our corner of Pembrokeshire. Freshwater West, Freshwater East, and the picturesque village and beaches of Angle are only a few miles away.
Count the steps down to St Govan's Chapel. The tiny stone building has a stunning setting among the limestone cliffs. Local folklore suggests the steps are never the same number on the way back up.
Norman influences on the County are evident with castles at Manorbier, Carew, and spectacular Pembroke |Castle, the birthplace of Henry Tudor.
There’s so much to see and do in South Pembrokeshire. Parke Farm is well laid out and has great facilities. Thank you for considering us for your stay in this lovely area. We look forward to welcoming you to our campsite.
