These are the most common FAQs we receive about the campsite.
If the answer to your question is not here, give us a call on 01646 683167.
It depends how far you like to walk! The campsite is within the old part of the Stackpole Estate but the old path down to Bosherston Lily Ponds is now a private farm track so you cannot walk that way (although the route still shows on old OS maps).
You can walk to the lily ponds and then around the ponds to Barafundle Bay or Broadhaven South and Bosherston village, but the route from the campsite starts with a 15-minute road walk. (If you choose to walk on the road, you do so at your own risk). It is then about 40 minutes’ walk to either of the beaches (longer if you like to stop and look at the views and the wildlife).
There are 3 options if you’d prefer to avoid the road walk:
2-minute drive to the Stackpole Court end of Bosherston Lily Ponds (National Trust car park) and walk to the beaches, Stackpole Quay, or Bosherston village from there.
6-minute drive to Stackpole Quay (National Trust car park) to take the shortest walk to Barafundle Bay over the clifftops. This is about a 15-20-minute walk.
10-minute drive to the Bosherston village end of the Bosherston Lily Ponds (National Trust car park). It’s then about 30 minutes to Broad Haven South beach if you take the right-hand loop around the lily ponds; 45 minutes if you take the left.
We are lucky to have the multi-award-winning Stackpole Inn as our local pub. You can walk to it from the campsite, but you have to walk on the road for most of the route so it’s not good with young children. It’s about 40 minutes and a torch and high vis gear are a necessity if you walk in the dark.
Taxis are available (but not cheap!).
If you like a really good walk with a pub at the end, you can walk to the St Govan’s Inn in Bosherston. The first part (about 15 minutes) is on the road down to Bosherston Lily Ponds but the rest of the beautiful route is on footpaths around the lily ponds. It’s more than an hour’s walk, depending how much you take in the sights. You could also make a day of it by walking via the beach at Broad Haven South.
Yes! We welcome dogs with responsible owners on the campsite. However, dogs MUST stay on a lead (long lead or tether is fine) on the camping field and the grounds. We have free range chickens visiting from next door and we are next to a dairy farm. Children (and sometimes their parents!) run barefoot in the field – this is one of the simplest joys of being a child and is spoiled if you run through dog poo.
So, if your dog is not used to being on a lead or if you do not like your dog being tethered then we're sorry but our campsite is not for you.
Please note, the campsite is about 3 miles from a military firing range. Since we opened in 2017 we have had 3 instances of nervous dogs being affected by noise from the range.
Yes, our 5 grass camping pitches have optional electric hook-up at a charge of £8 per night (2023 price). The luxury glamping pod also has electricity.
In the autumn/winter time we have 3 electric hook-ups available on the gravelled area adjacent to the camping field, for use by campervans/motorhomes when the field is too wet to drive on.
We now have a very small shop on site (it is called Siop Fach Dwt - the Tiny Shop). It is open daily from Easter to the middle of September and after that, whilst the shop won't be open, you'll still be able to buy most of the items at the house on site. We sell basic food essentials including bottled milk and OJ, cereals, baked beans, biscuits, crisps, snacks, drinks and ice creams. Also postcards, stamps, batteries, tin foil. We have a partnership with our local bakery so fresh bread is available to order and every Friday in the school holidays we have French Friday, with fresh croissants, pain au chocolat and baguettes on sale.
The nearest supermarket is in Pembroke (a Co-op with a small car park in the main street) and there are several supermarkets in Pembroke Dock, including Tesco, Aldi, Asda and Lidl.
