Either bring your own tent to camp, glamp in the woods or pick a tent in the open wildflower meadow, all within walking distance of Millford Haven's natural harbour

There’s no castle on Castle Pill Farm, an agricultural smallholding one mile from Millford Haven and the Daugleddau estuary, but you can find natural fortifications in the shape of hulking, bushy hedgerows and great, turret like trees. A tiny stream is the closest thing you might find to a moat, bubbling its waters east to a tidal inlet, while battalions of sheep patrol the local fields. In all, it’s a pastoral scene reflecting the farm’s variety – through the years they have grown potatoes, established a pick-your-own fruit business and opened a small farm shop – and today there’s an even newer venture: a gorgeous glampsite.

Split between an open meadow of long, lush grass and a wooded glade with small clearings, Eco-Escapes Glamping offers seven fully furnished bell tents, each sleeping up to four people. Inside they feature beds and soft furnishings, while outside each tent is accompanied by a private barbecue shelter and picnic table. Though the campsite is off-grid, comforts aren’t lacking. Solar lighting, gas-powered showers and even a wood-fired hot tub hidden among the trees keep glampers nicely pampered, while ‘extreme’ badminton offers some extra fun – the court has been mown on a jaunty angle, meaning players on either side have to factor in the slope.

The entire glamping site, in fact, is on a gentle angle, which reaches down towards the tidal inlet. It's just a hundred metres from your tent to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, which you can follow to the waters edge. As you go, the footpath tumbles through a large wood, home to a pair of community-built roundhouses with a campfire area adjacent to the stream. It’s a perfect patch for paddling and dam building – children love it. From the water’s edge, keen walkers can either follow the meandering coast (at low tide) along the old railway line path all the way to Milford Marina or you can stick to the coastal path to the quaint village of Hazelbeach taking in views of the impressive energy infrastructure of Milford Haven along the way.

By car, meanwhile, the whole Pembrokeshire coast becomes your oyster. It’s 20 minutes to St Brides Bay, the water sports-friendly village of Dale and the picturesque harbour town of Tenby or bring bikes and tour the Brunel cycle trail, a long and lovely flat cycle trail which starts at Neyland Marina and extends to Haverfordwest, through the village of Johnston.

For a meal out, try The Harbour Master (01646 695493) and Martha’s Vineyard (01646 697083) at Milford Marina, serving fresh seafood dishes. There are also a number of lovely little cafés and shops along the marina front. The Jolly Sailor (01646 600378) at Burton is also excellent. They serve reasonably priced and hearty pub grub with fantastic views of the river. It also has seats outside, so you can take your dog with you. Finally, try a visit to Neyland Marina where The Bar (01646 602550) is particularly good.

The Owner Says

Eco-Escape is our small, family-run, dog-friendly and eco-friendly campsite, nestled in the valley of our working farm. Ancient Oak Woodland trails, the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and an inlet of the Tidal Estuary are all within 100m of your tents, and just a short walk up the country lane, you will find the local pub, serving hearty pub food. Our wood-fired hot tub, meadow swing and field space for games mean there is something for all the family, we provide a sheltered area for cooking and eating so it won't matter if there is a shower, and we are a perfect base from which to explore the best of Pembrokeshire's stunning beaches and coastline!
Having grown up on a farm in the heart of Pembrokeshire, we have a deep appreciation for the countryside, and our beloved environment, and so are passionate about recycling and up-cycling, and doing our part to look after the environment. Our aim is ultimately to become a zero-carbon campsite. Therefore, we have many eco-features to our site, including; an eco-composting toilet, up-cycled firepits and furniture, sustainable firewood, solar lighting and we offset our energy use by having wind turbines gently generating away on the edge of  the farmland. There’s no electricity; just firelight and the starry night sky!
We offer an escape away from the hustle-and-bustle, a chance to relax and reconnect with family, friends and nature, an opportunity to try new experiences, see new, breathtaking places, and feed the soul with wild and fun adventures!
Having grown up in Pembrokeshire, we know what this beautiful county has to offer. We have a passion for all things wild including local ecology and wildlife, water sports and outdoor activities. We have ventured into Camping and Glamping to share what we love with you!

Getting There

Please don't follow google maps directions to us, as it takes you down a bridleway rather than a road. Instead follow directions for sa73 1dn and keep a look out a couple of miles along the Waterston road (the B4325 between Waterston and Blackbridge) for a farm gate immediately adjacent to the blue gates of JP Auto's Garage (please note there are a set of blue gates in Waterston village itself, but we are more than a mile further on than this). Go through the farm gate (with the wooden sign of a wind turbine and tree) to the right of this garage, drive down the lane and go through the second gate on left (signposted Eco-escape). Head down the field to the gate in the middle (the parking area) and walk through gate with the 'no vehicles' sign. The glamping and camping meadow is to your left, the woodland glamping and camping area is through another two gates to your right. There is a wheelbarrow in the field you are welcome to use for your things (we don't allow cars in the meadow).

The nearest train station is Milford Haven (0845 748 4950) a 5-minute drive away. The nearest bus stop is approximately 1 mile away (walkable up a country lane), in Steynton. Taxis are relatively cheap - 01646 698818 (Jock's Taxis).
