Facilities

What makes Cilrath Wood Camping such a special place is its rich fauna and flora, beautiful wild life lake adjoining ancient oak woodland and unspoilt pasture untouched by modern agriculture. A secret tranquil haven which is close to the amenities of Narberth town and with excellent access to all Pembrokeshire has to offer visitors.

Suitable For

Romantic couples, special friends and lone campers will appreciate the privacy and peace. Young families will enjoy introducing their children to an old fashioned idyllic rural scene and the more energetic agile oldies will reminisce on similar tranquil times past.

Cilrath Wood camping is an ideal place to come on holiday for anyone who likes gentle outdoor activities or wants to relax in beautiful surroundings. Its' special and unique charms will be enjoyed by anyone who appreciates traditional wildflower meadows, old hedges, natural woodlands, brooks and ponds teaming with wildlife.

Nearby

Pembrokeshire is the most wonderful place to be.

The most westerly point of Wales, it's a ferry hop from Ireland and a three hour car drive from England.

The air is so clean, evident by the lichens, mosses and ferns that cling to anything that stands still long enough. Peaceful and tranquil but never silent as there is always the sound of birds, humming insects and distant agriculture in progress with sheep bleating, cows mooing and the occasional tractor mowing hay.

The landscape is so diverse but everywhere are wild flowers and some are quite rare. Numerous woodlands and copses are connected by miles of traditional hedges and earth banks forming an unending patchwork. The ancient history of Pembrokeshire is etched everywhere into the landscape if you know what to look for. Wherever you go you can see the Preseli Hills lifting the horizon with their own unique weather system hovering above, which no weather forecaster has seemed to master.

In any direction every 10 to 20 miles there is a diverse choice of interesting historic market towns. Ancient castles crop up along the Landsker borderlands where there is the remarkable blend of cultural Welsh speaking Wales meeting English speaking “Little England beyond Wales”

One of the special things about Cilrath Wood Camping is that it is smack in the centre of where all the main routes stretch out across Pembrokeshire, into Carmarthenshire and also up towards Cardiganshire (or Ceredigion as it is now known). Our location makes it easy to access the entire spectacular coastline on all three sides of the Pembrokeshire peninsula, which forms Britain’s only coastal National Park. It is the most westerly point in Wales. The coastline has a coastal path that twists and turns its’ way for 186 miles covering almost every kind of maritime landscape, from rugged cliff tops and sheltered coves to wide-open beaches and winding estuaries.

Its nice here!

Food & Drink

Food matters but a meal matters more. But greater than a meal is a shared meal.

There is no shortage of interesting places to eat only a short journey away in Narberth town.

A favourite for me is Ultracomida, which is an amazing Spanish Deli and café. It has rave reviews and is definitely worth a visit a couple of times. Once perhaps to stock up on cheeses, olives and bits, and another to sample its' lunchtime menu in its' compact arrangement of large communal tables.

Another great day time place to eat is Plum Vanilla café, a local favourite offering multiple vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options, which excites even the most avid carnivore. You may need to get there early as it is often full of locals.

There are a number of pubs offering bar food in and around Narberth but I would first head for the Dragon Inn or the Dingle Inn which are always busy and you are sure of something really fresh. Just out of town is a pub in a field in a converted steel agricultural barn called the Snooty Fox where it is nice to sit out on a sunny day. The Plash Inn, a Pub in a local village called Llanfallteg offers well priced fare in a friendly village pub atmosphere.

Two restaurants I like in Narberth are Mad Tom’s, specialising in high end seafood dishes, and the Peppercorn, a trendy bistro restaurant with interesting choices.

Quayside is a multi award winning tearoom, down by Lawrenny Yacht Station on the Estuary of the Cleddau the major river basin in Pembrokeshire, a delightful place to sit out on a calm day watching the boats.

Further afield I like to go to Tafarn Sinc an amazing very Welsh pub up in the Preseli Hills recently bought out up by the locals with shares in a community cooperative. Formerly the last stop railway hotel adjoining an old slate quarry it's clad in painted corrugated roofing sheets and the floor inside is literally deliberately covered with sawdust.

Further still, spectacularly positioned on the north Pembs coast it the Sloop Inn at Porthgain. Seriously hearty pub food with seafood options.

The Owner Says

Cilrath Wood Camping is hidden away on a Grade Two Listed traditional Pembrokeshire farmstead which is situated directly on the historical Landsker border marked by frontier castles running through the county of Pembrokeshire dividing Welsh speaking heartlands from the area known as “Little England beyond Wales”. It is a rare haven of old pastures and semi-ancient woodland, rich in fauna and flora. The campsite is focused around an old unploughed meadow with uninterrupted views of the countryside and Preseli Hills, a beautiful wildlife lake fed by two babbling brooks and an area of mixed deciduous woodland; all of which are out of sight and far from any dwelling or roadway.

Ten pitches are available either in the sheltered meadow or tucked away within the woodland itself. Pitches have a regularly mowed area where there is a picnic bench seating six people and a fire bowl with a cooking grill. Rustic compost toilets in a converted cattle trailer and spacious hot showers are close by. Two sheltered communal spaces are provided for activities and evening get togethers. One is in the form of a silk parachute canopy hung from branches in the shelter of an ancient quarry now a small attractive Bluebell hollow where a fire pit forms the centre of attention on dark evenings.  The other is a lakeside zinc and wood-pole open barn adjoining a babbling brook which tumbles into a series of little pools before it joins the wildlife lake.  It is wonderfully situated to catch the last of the evening sun.

Whilst secluded, Cilrath Wood Camping is only a few minutes drive from the little market town of Narberth, famed for being “UK’s Cleanest and Greenest Town, shortlisted as one of the “Best High Street in the UK”, named amongst the “Best places to live in Britain” and has been ranked as one of the “Happiest places in Wales”! The camp site is centrally situated giving easy access to the spectacular coastline on all three sides of the Pembrokeshire peninsula that forms Britain’s only coastal National Park and is the most westerly point in Wales.  It has a coastal path that twists and turns its’ way for 186 miles covering almost every kind of maritime landscape, from rugged cliff tops and sheltered coves to wide-open beaches and winding estuaries.
