Unassuming little site tucked away in one of the least visited corners of Pembrokeshire

You’ll likely be greeted by sheepdogs Beau and Luke and/or a clutch of rescue chickens as you drive into North Lodge, an unassuming little campsite in the grounds of the former Pant-y-Deri Estate and the shadow of the Preseli Hills. It consists of a selection of unmarked but secluded pitches set between rhododendron bushes and high hedges. Site owners Jane and Martin Callaby make sustainability and recycling a central tenet of the North Lodge experience and are heavily involved in a wide variety of eco-schemes. That said, there’s never a holier-than-thou attitude to camping here – the welcome is warm and friendly and above all there’s a genuine laid back feeling to the site.

What’s especially nice is that this is a part of Pembrokeshire that the guide books and tourist brochures generally overlook in favour of the more high profile coastline (one of the most spectacular sections of which is still only a short drive away). You’ll find it hard to resist the temptation to walk in the blue-shadowed Preseli Hills in the near distance, from the summits of which, on a clear day, you can see most of West Wales and even Ireland’s Wicklow Hills on the other side of the Irish Sea.

The Owner Says

North Lodge is a traditional campsite with  picturesque views over the Preseli Hills in remote Pembrokeshire.  Long grass and hedges surround  a selection of the grass pitches allowing maximum privacy for guests. The unique off grid cabins and horse lorry all have their own private spaces.  At night, campers can enjoy star gazing around a campfire and, by day, there are many beaches to explore just 10 minutes away.  For walkers there's the Coastal path or inland there are many different woodland, hill and riverside walks.  

Accommodation

There is a range of pitches and pitch sizes, all are big and not overcrowded. There are long grass areas and bushes around the pitches for privacy. For very large tents please specify and we will allocate a space. Vehicles not allowed on the field, wheelbarrows supplied for your kit. Damson off grid cabin is set in the old orchard with plenty of space outside, sometimes cabiners friends also bring tents and pitch up next to the cabin.  Preseli Cabin is on the edge of the camping field with its own hedge lined garden area. Our converted horse lorry Romerco is set in its own meadow, very private and secluded ideal for couples or friends who want to chill in their own space.
