Why stay here ...

The Gatehouse CL was originally a toll gate built in about 1830.

It is found in a very quiet road with a private, sheltered and level site, with hard standings and surrounded by trees.

Access to the Miners Walk (the old coal railway line) is opposite the site which is great for dog walkers, so well behaved dogs are welcome.

Klgetty village is a 5 minute walk away and has a petrol station, bakery, supermarket, chemist, take aways and other shops. Also not forgetting the Begelly Arms Hotel at the end of the road serving good food.

We are 4.5 miles from Tenby and 1.5 miles from Saundersfoot with lovely beaches and harbours.

National Express and local bus routes stop at the end of the road and the train station is 0.5 miles in Kilgetty village. Entrance to the site is through a stone gateway allowing access to even the largest outfits with care.

Advance booking is recommended for peak times as we have many regular visitors.

We hope you come and visit us and do not forget to ask for your welcoming cup of tea!

Lots of Pros & some Serious Cons to this CL.

PROS: Good geographically and easy to find by looking out on the left behind some trees and grass verge and a quiet location. The owners were very welcoming and explained where all the various local shops etc. are, plus recommended the local pub that is at the beginning of the road, where we had a pleasant meal. Driving into the charming places of Tenby and Saundersfoot is easy, plus plentiful car parking at both on the day that we visited. CONS: There is a need to be well lined-up via the entrance gate with a standard 24ft long Caravan as well as care when leaving, as the roadway is not very wide. The main picture of the site is very old and could be considered misleading, especially as the Hard Standing pitches are questionable. Three being just long/narrow “Tandem style” plus the other two are only just wide enough for the actual caravan and car alongside and no-more, without walking on sodden deep rutted grass, plus very short. We also happened to be located under a large oak tree that had its acorns thunder down on our roof at 2am one morning during a rain storm and then drip drip for many hours after. If we had moved forward we would have blocked the narrow roadway. The grass areas immediately to the side of the pitches and roadway displayed many wheel ruts and were well and truly waterlogged, thus lots of care needed at all times unhitching, car parking and re-hitching. The separate shower and toilet was spacious but very dated. The Chemical/Waste water emptying point was via a standard “Manhole” with only a Water-tub and watering-can adjacent. No Running water to flush things! SUMMERY: Why would anybody suggest “Candidate for CL of the year, A Gem or Fabulous, at anytime? We all have our own standards! We left after two nights instead of staying our paid Four Booked nights and will not return, under any circumstances! Many other great CL's elsewhere!

What a great Site. Definitely a candidate for CL of the year award

This is the first CL we have been to that you get a coffee on arrival. I have caravanned and motorhomed for 20 years visiting hundreds of sites and this was an absolute first. Pam and Geoff were the perfect hosts, giving us lots of information and assistance from dog walks to train times and walks into Sandersfoot. Sits is lovely with hard standings, lovely facilities and the warmest greeting ever. Thanks ever-so-much Pam and Geoff

Gem Of a Site.

This is a lovely site run by Geoff and Pam who welcome you with a hot drink. The owners are extremely helpful and the facilities are clean and tidy. Walks into Saundersfoot are available with Bus and Train routes into Tenby and Saundersfoot nearby. Shops are a short walk away with the Begelly Arms even closer for food and drink. Recommend this CS.

Fabulous Site Highly recomended

As we arrived at The Gate House. We were welcomed by Geoff and Pam. Whilst Geoff assisted us to pitch our caravan Pam had the Kettle on. A tray was set up for us with tea cosy to keep it warm for when we were ready. We were given a tour of facilities and recycling operation, which was well laid out. Toilets and shower room had all the equiptment stocked ready to clean down after everyuse to keep covid at bay whilst we enjoyed our holiday. Site Location was brilliant to explore all of Pembrokeshire with Saunderfoot just 10 minutes away in car. Some lovely walks from the site and Bagelly arms pub do lovely food just a 4 min walk away. Looking forward to going back soon

Nicest welcome to a lovely CL

We were greeted on arrival and offered tea and coffee which is a first in nearly 50 cl sites of which we have visited. The owners gave us all the info we needed and showed us to our pitch. The pitches are very near level with minimum adjustment required and each pitch has plenty of space. Access to the site is a little tight and so requires extra care but it is not overly difficult. The facilities were adequate and my family and I all used the free shower as ours was full of items needed for a long break. I would certainly recommend this cl site.
