Why stay here ...

Following redevelopment on Pembrey Country Park, children can now enjoy a brand new play area and other site-wide improvements include a newly installed motorhome waste point and 12 new serviced pitches.

Set on the edge of a 520-acre country park, Pembrey Country Park Club Site has all the luxuries you could ever wish for. The space allows a range of outdoor sporting activities to participate in with the use of the seven-mile stretch of safe, sandy beach only a mile away. You could spend your entire holiday happily occupied within the caravan park itself and for families this may be the perfect site to spend your holidays at.

For the parents, Pembrey Country Park Club Site's main selling point is the superb Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course just 4 miles away. Older children have the use of an equestrian centre with riding on the caravan site as well as a super dry-ski slope and toboggan ride. For the little ones, the miniature railway is noteworthy, and there's also an adventure playground to keep them busy. Located in picturesque Pembrey, Llanelli, this part of Wales retains the splendour that makes it a favourite amongst caravan owners of all ages. Even getting to the beach is a pleasure with access available for cycles. Bird and butterfly watchers will find the area a delight, and there are a whole series of guided walks. There are many restaurants in the seaside town of Burry Port just two miles from site, offering a variety of places to eat.

Good visit as usual but a few gripes this time

Pembrey Country Park Caravan Club Site
We have been visiting Pembrey for decades and love the site and the park. We’ve taken our children and now our grandchildren. They love it. The biking through the woods and on the beach is great and there are no crowds. There’s a good bike route along the coast to Burry Port which is well worth a visit. In the summer there are lots of children on site and they all make friends and have a great time. Several sites now have food outlets on various nights and the Pizza van on Friday and Saturday here was very good – we recommend. Unfortunately there are some gripes this time. Dogs! Maybe there are lots of new members who don’t know the rules or just don’t care but dogs are supposed to be under control and taken off site for walks and toilet, not led to the nearest bit of grass and allowed to mess. Clearing it up is not the point; children play here and it’s unacceptable. Refuse. As we’ve read in reviews, you now have to take all your rubbish to the front gate area of the site, where you can segregate it for recycling. The bins are large with heavy lids making it difficult for some people to lift a lid and put rubbish in at the same time. When I asked a warden what the rationale was for changing the system, I was told it was to do with there being a lot of rubbish – 150 bags was mentioned – hypodermic needles - the bags are heavy - “health and safety”, etc. It sounded to me as though the wardens just didn’t want to do it anymore. It was inconvenient as rather than take bits and pieces frequently to the local bins, you tend to let it mount up to make the journey worthwhile, so rubbish is hanging around for maybe several days. Some people even needed to take the car to dispose of it. Hardly progress and it just isn’t rational as now all the rubbish has to be hand-carried (by customers) to the front gate instead of being towed in bulk bins by small tractor. The smaller toilet block was still permanently closed so facilities are not “fully open”; don’t know why as the site was full. That said, we will of course visit again as the location is great but the Club needs to get these things sorted.

disappointing reception on arriving before 1.00 pm

Pembrey Country Park Caravan Club Site
With Covid restrictions lifted we incorrectly assumed that the arrival time had reverted to 12.00 noon. We were instructed to turn our twin axle caravan around and proceed back out of the site with extreme difficulty due to the inadequate turning space, even though there would have been ample room had the warden deigned to move a few traffic cones which was sealing off a parking area. Not being able to check in until 1.00 pm is very inconvenient for hungry children, many of whom have sat in the back of a car for a few hours travelling to the site. Only the main toilet block was open even though the Welsh Government announcement on 6 August stated that All internal shared facility areas, including toilet and shower blocks. etc would be open. The site was full, which would indicate that the facilities provided were inadequate. Very shocked to see many dogs off leads and dogs being allowed to defecate anywhere on the site and also on grassed areas where young children play hide-and-seek etc. We have been taking children to Pembrey regularly for six years and am saddened to have to make these negative comments.

My experience

Pembrey Country Park Caravan Club Site

This is a fabulous site - ideally located for cycling, walking, beach, castles and driving to stunning places such as Saundersfoot, Mumbles and Tenby. I read earlier reviews which were not so great, though I thought this site is as good as any other site of similar location. Yes, it attracts families so children playing can create some noise. Some families seemed to stay on site for large parts of the day. I was a little worried by the number of children cycling around the place and even some adults flying by on electric scooters at some speed and at night. Luckily we found a pitch on a quieter section of the site which was mainly occupied by adults. It's the grassed areas that seem to attract families. I also read another review who said that several vans/MH were arriving and trying to reserve pitches before they had fully checked in. I caught sight of such activity AND even saw a caravan being driven right across several pitches to take a short cut to a vacant pitch they had spotted...the route they took was clearly not correct and would contravene driving 'rules' and compromise safety. Anyway, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was peaceful and pleasant on our pitch and we watched others with some amusement at times! I'm sure we will return. Oh, and having to take your rubbish to the bins at the front of the site is not a problem at all. Those who winge about this are probably those who would benefit from some exercise! It's also probably better to have rubbish away from the pitches....more sites should do this. Thank you to all the wardens! Keep up the good work. From a grateful couple.

Disappointed

Pembrey Country Park Caravan Club Site
This was our first stay at this site.good location,facilities were spotless. However,although it’s a rural location on a country park,there is often a continuous noise from a nearby racing circuit which really spoiled the tranquility of the site during the day. Half way through the week,all of the bins at the service points were removed for reasons unknown,meaning you had to do a long walk to the site entrance to dispose of your rubbish. Although the facilities were clean,shutting them for cleaning between 10.30-12.30 was a poor choice of times.why couldn’t they be closed in the afternoon at anytime?,and I didn’t appreciate being barked at by one of the wardens that the facility was closing for cleaning at 10.25. Whilst the site had rules,it seems the wardens were a bit haphazard of how and when these were implemented.there is no dedicated dog walk on site,so you have to walk off site to allow for dog exercise/toilet,one morning my wife was chastised abruptly by one warden for the dog doing its business,although we always clean up after our pets.we noticed other campers dogs doing the same,but not being challenged.although there is a 10 pm traffic curfew,on a number of occasions vehicles were driving around the site after 11 pm,and although there was a Covid ‘no visitor’ rule,the motorhome next to us had visitors staying.? We found a couple of the wardens ‘sergeant’ like and this took the ambience of the site away. Unfortunately,if you have a less than perfect holiday you tend not to go back or recommend a site which I would apply here. Shame.
