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.

It's a four-minute drive or half-hour walk into Narberth town. Try the excellent Spanish deli and café Ultracomida and stock up on cheese, olives and other bits or enjoy lunch at their compact arrangement of communal tables. Close by on the opposite side of the High Street is Fforc Welsh Produce, an all welsh food delicatessen & micro sourdough bakery. Another great daytime spot is Plum Vanilla (01834 862762) café, a local favourite offering multiple vegetarian, vegan and gluton free options, which excites even the most avid carnivore. You may need to get there early as it's often full of locals. For restaurants, try the high-end seafood at Mad Tom’s (01834 860506) or trendy bistro the Pepper Corn (01834 861778).

If it's a good pub you're after, try the Dragon Inn (01834 860257) the Dingle Inn (01834 869979), or the newly renovated Angel gastro pub (01834 860318) all of which are always busy and you're sure of fresh food. Just out of town, the Snooty Fox (01834 891300) is in a converted agricultural barn with a great outside area on sunny days. The Plash Inn (01437 563472) in nearby Llanfallteg Village is also a great bet.

Further afield, Tafarn Sinc (01437 532214) is an amazing Welsh pub up in the Preseli Hills, recently bought out by the locals with shares in a community cooperative. Formerly the last stop railway hotel adjoining an old slate quarry, it's clad in corrugated roofing and the floor inside is covered with sawdust. An atmospheric must-visit if you're in the area.

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

Open

Easter–October.

The Owner Says

Cilrath Wood Camping is hidden away on a Grade Two Listed traditional Pembrokeshire farmstead, focused around a rare haven of old pastures with uninterrupted views of the countryside and Preseli Hills, semi-ancient woodland rich in fauna and flora and a beautiful wildlife lake fed by two babbling brooks; all of which are far from any dwelling or roadway. Ten pitches in total are available each with a firebowl for a wood fire and picnic bench. Six spaced far apart in the ancient hay meadow, two on firm hardstanding suitable for campervans and a few in the slightly more secluded fringes of the woodland. It is possible within the meadow to bring several pitches together to form a traditional group encampment.

Nearby are two comfortable compost toilets with wash hand basins and a male urinal in a rustic converted cattle trailer. There are two separate spacious hot showers and a covered outdoor washing up and food prep area with two sinks and cold running water. Eco-friendly hand wash, shower gel and washing up liquid products are provided. Car parking, a flush toilet, a fridge-freezer and USB charge points are also on site.

There are two sheltered communal spaces 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, beside a brook which tumbles into a series of small pools before it joins the wildlife lake. It is perfectly 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 being ranked as one of the “Happiest places in Wales”! The campsite is centrally situated giving easy access to the spectacular coastline on all three sides of the Pembrokeshire peninsula, which forms Britain’s only coastal National Park and is the most westerly part of Wales. It has a coastal footpath 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.
