Woody Kiln Farm is a Club Certificated Location set on a small Farm in the heart of the Pembrokeshire National Park – the only coastal National Park in the UK.

The site is located on a large field of which approximately 0.75 acres and a further 1.25 acres is lawned and accessible to CL users with a distant view of the Atlantic Ocean. Our visitors have full access to the farmland totalling 12 acres to exercise dogs. All pitches are surrounded by peaceful paddocks where our horses and sheep graze. There is a small orchard adjacent to the park and guests are welcome to sample the fruit. We operate all hardstanding pitches which are well maintained.  Our site is special as we offer facilities which are commonly found on larger sites - such as with 16 amp electric hook- up, fresh water tap with screw fitting, satellite and terrestrial digital TV points and Free Superfast Wifi.  

The site is an excellent base for exploring the vast attractions within the Pembrokeshire National Park. With over 950 km of public footpaths, walking is an excellent way to discover the spectacular scenery, abundant wildlife and fascinating history that Pembrokeshire offers. A sandy beach is 20 minutes’ walk away. There is a local shop and public house within 500m of the site.  

The site is in a perfect location for exploring the spectacular wildlife around the Pembrokeshire coastline. The coastal path is accessible by foot, which is a 10 minute walk from the site. The islands of Skomer, Grassholm, Ramsey and Skokholm will enable you to experience the incredible breath-taking sights of Puffins, Guillemots, Gannets and Razorbills, along with a host of other birds and wildlife including seals and dolphins.

The local town of Milford Haven (2 miles away) has cafes, restaurants, smart shops, Leisure Centre with Swimming Pool, Theatre and two supermarkets.  Milford Marina is located on the picturesque Milford Haven Waterway and has some stunning waters up river from the Marina. It benefits from a variety of shops, cafes and restaurants on the quayside as well as a Dockside Gallery, Museum and 10 pin bowling centre.

Haverfordwest is an attractive and ancient town (7 miles away) which has a great variety of shops in the town and the outlying retail parks. Dominated by the Western Cleddau that runs through the middle of the town and the castle that towers above it. There are plenty of pubs, cafés and restaurants as well the award winning Farmers Market held every Friday. Produce includes fresh fish, crabs & lobster, organic meat and vegetables, artisan cheeses and traditional-recipe cakes.

Nearby are also the historic seaside towns of Pembroke and Tenby – probably the most iconic seaside town in Wales. It was awarded a Silver award for the best UK coastal resort at the British Travel awards in 2014.

Further afield include the beauty spots of Little Haven, Broad Haven, Solva and Newgale which is rated as a top three location in Pembrokeshire for Windsurfing and Kayaking. The smallest city in Britain namely St. Davids has a Cathedral built from a local stone with a beautiful pink and grey colouring. It occupies the valley floor below the city and cannot be seen until you are fairly close!

The site is on a bus route which gives visitors access to many of Pembrokeshire’s Villages and Towns, and the village also has a cycle path to our nearest town of Milford Haven. From here, you can access cycle path links to the National Cycle Routes.

Adults, Children and pets are welcome.

Simple, but Perfect

I really don't want to write this review, as it will just make more and more people want to visit, and why wouldn't they, the whole site is FANTASTIC. A nice wide and easy access opens out onto 5 hardstanding pitches of a very good size. Each pitch has its own 16amp hookup, fresh and waste water and TV/Satellite hookup. Once pitched you are overlooking several fields, which double as the excellent dog exercise area, perfect for letting them run and play. Milford Haven, a 5 minute drive has several stores and takeaways to suit a variety of tastes. The site has it's own Wi-Fi and the signal on EE and Vodafone was perfect for those that like to stay connected (me) In short if every CL was like this the world would be perfect, we loved it so much we have already booked for next year, and hopefully depending on everything (and Dean having space) we might get back sooner than then.

Simple, Super CL

It is very tempting not to leave a review of a fantastic CL you stayed at in the vain hope that it doesn't become too popular. Woody Kiln Farm CL in Herbrandston, Pembrokeshire is such a place. My wife and I stayed here, on pitch 5 for 16 nights in October 2020. We would have stayed longer but for the impending Welsh Covid-19 lockdown. Firstly though, something to note, Dean, the owner asks for a 50% deposit to secure a pitch, and why not? It’s a business and when people book a pitch and choose to stay elsewhere without cancelling their other bookings an empty pitch is not good for business. Herbrandston is a small village on the Pembrokeshire coast. Do not forget to download the directions from Milford Haven which Dean will send you. If you follow your satnav you will end up on some very unsuitable roads for caravans. Otherwise, the route in is easy. Dean has worked hard to make his CL is user friendly. It is situated on a small hill which slopes down towards the coast about half a mile away. The pitches are plenty big enough to accommodate a caravan with 3m wide awning or tow car. Despite the sloping terrain the pitches themselves are almost level which meant my awning was perfectly pitched for a change. The pitches are dressed with a layer of hardcore beneath which is solid ground so, awning pegs stay put. The grey waste drain lies roughly in the middle of the services side of the pitch so long lengths of drainpipe are not required. The services post with the fresh water tap and EHU also has a box for digital and satellite TV. A long aerial lead is required to connect the box to the caravan though. Dean has cables for sale if required. Dean also has a small stock of basics such as caravan steps and toilet chemicals. We also bought local eggs, butter and home cured bacon from him. There are no showers or loos on site therefore, you must use your onboard facilities. The toilet waste disposal point is near the entrance of the CL and easy to use with a proper flush. The recycling bins are emptied daily. For dog owners, the dog walking field comprises two huge fields on which dairy cattle used to graze so, there is no excuse for letting your pooch mess on the grass in front of the pitches!! Also, on site is a hairdressing and beauty salon which is run by Sharon, Dean's wife. There are no shops in Herbrandston but Milford Haven has plenty and is only a ten-minute drive away. There are more shops and supermarkets further afield in Haverfordwest and Pembroke. Woody Kiln Farm CL is located close to the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. The area is stunningly beautiful. So full of history, with a rugged coastline, beautiful beaches, interesting castles and attractive towns and villages. Pembrokeshire was a real surprise and we will definitely be returning to Woody Kiln Farm CL as there is much more to see. That is of course if we can get in now! Thank you, Dean and Sharon, for providing probably the best CL we have ever stayed on.

A Little piece of Heaven

We have just had an amazing week here, this is a wonderful site we both felt so relaxed from the start, brilliant pitches and the site is so clean you overlook the fields our dog loved them and the grass is so beautiful worthy of a gold at Chelsea, there is a lovely walk down to sandy haven a beautiful beach and lots of rock pools and at low tide you can cross over a small footbridge and continue on the coastal path,we were recommended this site from a lovely couple we met in Anglesea and they were right about how amazing it is we are already looking at booking for next year if we can get in so thanks Dean and Sharon

Great Week

Just back from a lovely week at this site. A fully serviced pitch on a CL for £15 all in? Wow! Even better were the lovely three fields in front of us where we could let the dogs off the lead to play. When I say fields, they were more like lawns, neatly and freshly cut. The welcome was excellent with Dean keen to see we were settled in and sorted us with some items we've left behind (Steel awning pegs are needed). Although there was no rush Dean came out, promptly, in the rain when I contacted him...thanks Dean. The site had adapted well to Covid-19 restrictions and everything was very safe. The site itself, is all hard standing nicely laid-out so your view is of the fields and not other vans. Access is through a small farm courtyard making the actual CL feel very safe and secure. As we were just looking to escape our three grownup children (all at home for 3 months lock down!) we didn't venture too far; this was a holiday for the dogs and reading. However, the Tesco in Milford Haven (about 10 mins away) was covid safe and very friendly. Our main trip off-site was to Sandy Haven beach, dog-friendly. This is walkable for most from the site although we drove due to one of the dogs having bad legs. The beach is hidden away at the bottom of a small lane with a carpark for c.30 cars. It didn't have more than 5 when we visited and was a real gem of a find. If you have children they will love the rock pools and it also has lots of sand as well. We went at both high and low tide without problems. Concrete steps down, so not for wheelchairs, but possible with a child's buggy. Our only problem was our own fault. As usual -use the instructions -not the Sat Nav for the final approach! We had a caravan Sat Nav but it still tried to take us down an unsuitable road. If you do miss it, follow the road through Milford Haven and out the other side. When you arrive go down the road with the dead-end sign to the left of the small estate. DO NOT go past the site and round the right-hand bend! You will be going for miles until you can turn around and it gets narrow! Guess who did that! The site is understandably popular so make sure you book ahead.
