Clover Fields Camping Pitch Sleeps 6
The Owner Says
Pembrokeshire is an outdoor instructor’s playground, with Canoeing, sailing, hiking, Climbing, Kayaking and coasteering to mention a few. Just 2 miles away, is our stunning backdrop, Foel Cwm Cerwyn, the highest peak in the Preseli hills, or indeed Pembrokeshire. From here (Brynhaul) you enjoy panoramic views of the Preseli hills and the rural landscape of Pembrokeshire (with no neighbours). While you take in the beauty and quiet, the children can explore the hedges for blackberries, hazel and litchens. We provide a car free environment (other than set up and take down) so playing is safe. If they join one of our bushcraft courses, they might be the ones cooking your bbq or lighting the fire pit! For us, the priceless part is star gazing and sunsets – it is so dark here you really feel the stars are in touching distance and we could photograph probably 200 sunsets a year!
We run Brynhaul as green as we can, the site is off grid, but with modern compost loos and pleasant gas heated showers. Much of our power is solar and we recycle just about everything.
What to do with the kids
In nearby Mynachlog ddu there is horse riding in the hills. Castell Henllys the iron age fort. The Shire Horse farm in Eglwswrw. Oakwood, folly farm, Manor park. Play park in the village. Canoe trips on the Teifi river, kid friendly Kayaking or stand up paddle boarding in Fishguard. Loads of castles. Welsh wildlife centre.
For Free Tons of beaches that are great on any day, that includes swimming, rockpooling, diverting streams and making the biggest sand castle or sculpture ever! Blackberry, hazel and sloe picking. Blowing dandelion clocks. These hills are fantastic for walking with a family, short walks and full days out - our kids were up there before they could walk!! Teach them how to read a map (or learn yourself!!). DIY bush craft (start with chopping kindling for the BBQ or fire pit). Llys y Fran lake park. Scolton manor park (park is free but museum is paid for).
Brynhaul is situated on the edge (like 500 yards) of the wonderful Pembrokeshire Coastal National Park. Walking distance is the quiet village of Maenclochog, which has grocery shops, garage, café a country pub and 2 artists galleries. The next village is Rosebush, with a fairly unique, grade 2 listed, community pub/restaurant, Pantmaenog forest for walking and cycling, a cheese farm, old slate quarries and a hidden lake. Llys y Fran Lake Country Park, with its walks, cycling, excellent fishing and soon to open adventure centre is only 3 miles away. The stunning glaciated Gwaun Valley, where Bessie of, Dyffryn Arms, still serves beer from a jug is about 5 miles, in fact we are centrally located for all of Pembrokeshire’s 186 miles of beautiful beaches, coastline, villages and attractions.

Shepherds Hut and Hedgerow Hut:
Your kitchen is well fitted and thought out, you can bake it, boil it, BBQ it, grill it, chill it, fry it, or even microwave it! All you need to do is bring your choice of food and drinks. Or dine Al-fresco around the BBQ / fire pit.
There is a double bed that rises out of the way in the day time, giving you a snug dining area underneath and the 2 sofas double up as single beds with storage under them. There is something nice about snuggling up in a warm bed, after a day exploring and being so close to nature. Both huts also have comfortable en suite bathrooms.
Hedgerow Hut has its own exclusive Hot tub.
Pembrokeshire is an outdoor instructors playground! We love that we get to walk, bike, canoe, kayak, sail, coasteer, stand up paddle board, surf, wind surf, rock climb, paint, photograph or just squiggle your toes in the sand. We have beaches listed in the top ten in the world, Britain's only coast national park (186 miles of crazy, stunning beauty). That's before we get on to Celtic historic sites that are 3,000 years old, hundreds of castles, churches and cathedrals that stretch from the Celts and Normans onward. Visit our local artists' Galleries and Mohair workshops. Then there are the pleasure parks and zoos like Heatherton, Manor Park, Folly Farm and Oakwood or Castell Henllys Celtic Fort - I think you get the picture, we are not bored here!
Food & Drink
Maenclochog (our village, just a 15 minute walk away) has Cafe y Sgar (that we nip off to when we can). The Globe is a great local, as is Tafarn Sinc in Rosebush is a community owned pub that does food. Not far away are the towns of Narberth and Newport (get the right Newport on your satnav!) which have great choices of food and drink. There are plenty of local brewers and breweries in the area including Gethin's cider (here in Maenclochog), Caffle or Bluestone Brewery in the spectacular glaciated Gwaun Valley. We have recently enjoyed the Trewern Arms in Nevern, Block and Barrel in Haverfordwest, the Cross Inn in Clarbeston Road and the Salutation Inn in Felindre Farchog , with great food in all of them.

Response from Brynhaul Clover Field Camping and Shepherds Huts
A fantastic restorative retreat with so much to do nearby.
From Carmarthen follow the A40 towards Fishguard for about 18 miles. Two miles beyond the village of Llandewi Velfrey, head onto the A478 signed for Cardigan. Continue for five miles through Clunderwen, Llandisilio and Efailwen until you come to a crossroads with a garage on the right and the Cross Inn pub on the left. Turn left and at the end of the road turn right. After passing Pont Hywel Mill, turn right. Follow this road for a couple of miles until you reach Brynhaul on your right.
Or - navigate to Maenclochog. Look for Cafe y Sgwar, take the road that goes between it and the Murco garage (sign posted Crymych) we are three quarters of a mile on the left.
Brynhaul is not far from Sustrans cycle route 47, which connects Newport to Fishgaurd, so arriving by bike is a great way to get here; whether as part of a cycle tour or after the train to one of the local stations. The closest are request stops at Clarbeston Road or Clynderwen (Clunderwen), both around seven miles from the campsite. The closest station with other onwards means is Haverfordwest or Fishguard. Buses to the village operate infrequently so a taxi would be best for the final 11–12 miles to Brynhaul Camping and Shepherds Huts.
