A tiny seaside campsite overlooking Dale bay and running alongside the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path

It was a while ago that Cool Camping first discovered ‘the Pembrokeshire paradox’ and, if we were the scholarly type, no doubt we would have written a few academic papers on it by now. Pembrokeshire, you see, is a county of unbeatable beauty, home to one of the UK’s most enchanting stretches of coastline, broken into rocky outcrops, islands and broad, sandy beaches. Yet while it offers charmingly peaceful countryside away from the rush of modern life, its tiny towns and villages positively burst in the summer months – it’s an escape that’s so attractive there are now just too many escapees.

What a joy it is, then, to discover Point Farm Campsite. Out on the Dale peninsular, the county’s remote tip, where the cliffs wind in every conceivable angle matched only by the coastal path, Point Farm is a truly tiny hideaway that offers camping of old in an environment away from the tourist hype. There are just eight camping pitches in total – something somewhat inconceivable as your journey towards to the coast, haunted by holiday parks further inland – and a ‘no caravan’ policy that gives the whole place a nostalgic, traditional vibe. It’s a teeny tiny paradise that epitomises what Cool Campingis about – right down to  the encouragement of campfires.

The campsite is actually a relatively new venture – a family spot run by Nia, Fil and their two children – though the farm itself dates back to the 1720s. It sits proudly up on top of a gentle slope like an ancient local landmark and boasts panoramic views not just out across the sea, but also back in land to the Preseli Mountains and up the Milford Haven estuary.

There are two types of pitch: Four all-weather pitches have a gravelly base suitable for campervans, with electrical hook-ups and space for cars to be parked alongside, while, slightly lower, a terraced grassy space is left for tent campers only, their cars parked in an adjacent parking area. There’s also a newly added Shepherd’s Hut, with a kitchen, beds and all you need inside, suitable for a family of four. All areas are just a few footsteps from the wooden shower block, with a family shower room and a washing up area, while in the opposite direction you can tumble down through the trees directly onto the Pembrokeshire Coast Path that runs right next to the site. As a walker’s stop off point it’s ideal.

Even if you don’t have the legs for the full 186-mile coastal route, though, you needn’t worry. Provided you can follow the first 400 meters from the campsite you’ll already find yourself at the first pub break! It’s here that Dale village is found; a quaint village fronted by a beautiful sandy beach. It’s a convenient, thriving hub from which to plan your stay – whether it’s renting a surfboard from one of the waterfront shops or planning a kayaking trip up the Milford Haven estuary. You can also hop on a boat for a ferry journey out to Skokholm and Grassholm islands, the former a rugged, remote island noted for its impressive cliffs of red sandstone, the latter home to some 80,000 screaming gannets. The boats can’t land (for that head a few miles across the mainland for a ferry to Skomer Island instead), but they do stop so you can watch the wildlife.

Nearby

The location makes off-site activities a bit of a no brainer! The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path runs directly alongside the campsite, with a number of circular walks taking in the local beaches – Dale, Watwick, Marloes – and the site is a mere 450 meters walking distance from picturesque Dale village. On the waterfront, West Wales Watersports (01646 636642) offer tuition and hire of sailing dinghies, windsurfs and stand-up paddle boards. Or, take a short drive to Martins Haven where you can take the ferry out to Skomer Island (01646 603123) and marine nature reserve (15 minutes). Dale Fort Field Studies Centre (01646 636205) run short wildlife courses for all the family (1 mile) and there are local charter boat fishing trips for any budding anglers.

Food & Drink

You don't need to look far. The Griffin Inn (01646 636227) is 400 meters away – an award winning pub offering fresh seafood and an excellently cosy, family-friendly atmosphere. In the summer, there's a terrace outside too. You can also head down to the Dale Yacht Club's restaurant, Coco's Brasserie (01646 636362), which is open to non-members for lunch and dinner (check their seasonal opening times depending on when you're there). The Boathouse Café (01646 636929) in Dale offers simple food at breakfast and lunch times (again, seasonal opening hours) and also has a small shop selling basic supplies.  Slightly further away at Marloes Sands is the wonderful Runwayskiln (01646 636545) - National Trust owned cafe (less seasonal hours but good to check opening times)

Opening Times

Easter – end of September.

Family Friendly

Like nippers on Christmas Day, you need to be prepared for a very early start to enjoy the gift that is Point Farm Campsite. Book early enough, though, and you can bag a pitch at this teeny, tiny campsite and beat the Pembrokeshire crowds.
