Nestled in sleepy Pembrokeshire, yet still conveniently close to the regions finest sights, Dews Lake Farm is the perfect choice for campers wanting to enjoy the wonders of Western Wales

First time campers? The family not bowled over by the idea of a weekend camping in rural Wales? Then Dews Lake Farm might be the ideal choice for your first under-canvas foray. The site provides pitches for ‘traditional campers’ and ‘glampers’ alike on a friendly, authentic working farm teeming with wildlife and countryside character. Tucked away in sleepy Pembrokeshire, yet still conveniently close to the regions finest sights (including Manorbier Castle & Freshwater East Beach), Dews Lake Farm is the perfect choice for campers wanting to enjoy the wonders of Western Wales and its remarkably unspoilt landscapes.

Upon arrival you realise everything here is relaxed and pretty low-key. There’s no designated pitches, just rock up and find your corner of tranquillity. You’ll find decent facilities here too with pipping hot showers, 16-amp electric hook-up points (for caravans) and handy phone charging stations.

Dews Lake’s patch of flat green farmland sits only six miles from the loveable bucket-and-spade town of Tenby. Many literary greats such as Roald Dahl, Jane Austen and Beatrix Potter have taken inspiration from its elegant white Georgian mansions, glorious hilltop views and traditional fishing village feel. Today, Tenby is a postcard-maker's dream and delights visitors who stroll leisurely through its medieval streets lined with cosy pubs, quirky gift shops and tempting ice-cream parlours.

As luck would have it, Dews Lake is also on the doorstep of one of Europe’s finest beaches, Barafundle Bay. Reached after an invigorating half-hour cliff-top trek, the immaculate, golden sands and turquoise blue waters give it a paradisiac feeling, often drawing comparisons to the Caribbean. Out of season you often have the place to yourself, apart from a few brave surfers who tackle the choppy Irish Sea. From Barafundle, take a delightful little stroll to Bosherston lily ponds. The best time to visit is in late spring or summer when the lilies are in flower and become home to an eclectic array of wildlife, including otters, swans, herons, dragonflies and 'robbing' robins who won't hesitate to pinch food right out of your hands.

Nearby

A 20 minute walk away is the small village of Lamphey. The birthplace of Henry VII (Henry VIII’s father), Lamphey was home to a fourteenth century parish church, used by the Bishops of St. David’s. However, Bishop Barlow wanted it removed to Carmarthen and he is seen as responsible for the churches decay. The ruins survive today and are a fascinating insight into the history of Pembrokeshire. On the history theme, Manorbier Castle (01834 871394) is a well-preserved 12th century gatehouse. When the crown disposed of the castle in 1670, it was declared derelict until a local family purchased it and it remained with the family until the 20th century. Life-size wax figures in costume are dotted about the place and you can admire the view from the turret windows down to Manorbier’s surfer friendly beach. Adults are £5, children £3, and dogs are permitted (if kept on a lead). Alternatively, head east to Tenby and explore its many shops and cafés. Manor House Wildlife Park (01646 651201) is an enjoyable, educational family day out. The kids will love being able to get up close and personal with the Lemurs, Wallaby's and Meerkats; youngsters are also invited to help feed the goats and sheep. Heatherton World of Activities (01646 652000) is a theme park with go-karts, zip-wires, zorbs, and bumper boats. Other activities include clay pigeon shooting, fishing, adventure golf, and paintball.

Food & Drink

The site can arrange outside catering for parties or guests hiring the entire site for a wedding or party. The Dial Inn (01646 672426) is only a mile away and serves excellent homemade food and local ales. Lamphey is home to Mr White's Bakery (01646 672102), a renowned artisan bakery that has fed the community for years. The Stackpole Inn (01646 672324) is a great choice for when you visit the beautiful Barafundle Bay. The pub was awarded the prestigious "Best Gastropub in Wales" award at the Great British Pub Awards. Narberth (12 miles away) is renowned for its fantastic deli’s, café’s and boutique shops. Everything served at Plum Vanilla in central Narberth (01834 862762) is home made, from the fresh bread loaves, soups, quiches, and salads, through to their fantastic desserts. They also cater for vegetarian and vegan diets.
