Why stay here ...

Located within Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Freshwater East Club Site offers more than just the fresh coastal air and warm sunshine. The park boasts many picturesque walks along the coastal path with stunning cliff top views. The caravan park itself is flanked by trees on one side, with a mixture of grass and hardstanding tiered pitching areas to choose from.

A stretch of long, sandy beach is minutes away, with rock pools and coves for exploring at one end. You will be spoilt for choice for castles to visit in the area - take your pick from Pembroke, Manorbier or Carew with its restored tidal mill and pond. If you have a pooch they will be spoilt for choice, with plenty of dog friendly beaches nearby.

Freshwater East Club Site puts you within easy reach of a wealth of attractions. A visit to Barafundle Bay (only accessible by foot) and Broadhaven beaches, taking in Bosherton lily ponds is highly recommended. Or head in the opposite direction to the popular walled town of Tenby with its colourful harbour, sandy beaches and boat trips to Caldey Island. If you fancy something a bit more adventurous, why not visit Ireland - sailings leave daily from Pembroke Dock, only a short drive away from the main caravan site.

In about 2 miles in Pembroke (immediately after passing under railway bridge) turn left onto A4139 (signposted Tenby). In 1.75 miles at Lamphey, just past sharp right bend and over bridge, turn right then immediately left onto B4584 (signposted Freshwater East). In about 1.75 miles turn right (signposted Stackpole, Trewent International Caravan sign) into Trewent Hill (do not continue beyond junction as it is a dead end and manoeuvring is very difficult).

The weather made it

Just returned from a 12 day stay, a fair mix of pitch types (perhaps too many grass pitches for us) however if you like grass you will be more than happy. The toilet blocks were always very clean, the system in place is ‘bands in Milton’, disappointingly some members were seen entering the facilities without taking a band, we ALL need to follow the guidance, it’s serious and the rules are here for a good reason, for all concerned. Personally I think the signage on door as people enter should be bigger and more direct. The site is ideally situated for lots of great beaches and if you enjoy walking there are lots of good coastal paths, and access to the beach is just across the road from the site. Tenby is really nice and all car parking fees locally are reasonable. We found the wardens polite and helpful, and if they read these reviews thank you for maintaining a clean site.

Lovely site if you want to disconnect from the world for a bit..

My wife and I recently stayed at Freshwater East for a couple of weeks. We had been here before so knew what to expect, and in most respects the site is still a really lovely spot. The site is landscaped well, and has a mix of service and non serviced pitches and grass or hard standing pitches. The facilities are maintained to the usual club standards, and the wardens were very friendly and helpful. The site is also located a short walk from a lovely little beach. We enjoyed our stay very much. The downsides were mostly caused I think by the remote location of the site. There is no mobile signal, and almost non existent TV reception. The site was fairly busy while we were there, which may explain why the site wifi was virtually unusable. The lack of connectivity might be an attraction to some, but I don't think I can risk being that "cut off" from the rest of the world again so I doubt I'll be back. Shame, as it's a lovely site in every other respect.

I booked for 5 nights from 9th September left after 3 we have a motor home and like to use the buses that it said there were, no there are not, we were told no bus, hasn't been since before lock down that should have been told on booking, was given taxi number and told Tenby was £10 no it was £30 each way. Then ask if we could have a paper was told no you can get one at the garage turn left out of the site 3 miles there and 3 back for a 80 year old up hill too much. Then the cows mooing all night. 5 Showers only 2 in use. Rubbish

Same as it ever was.

Just managed to get in for 3 nights and we were mighty glad we were one of the first arrivals of the day and were lucky enough to find a hardstanding pitch. I'd forgotten how many grass pitches there were and though we were told by the wardens that there were a few closed because they were too wet, we saw quite a few 'vans struggling to get onto the remaining ones. The site was as clean as ever and the social distancing rules were adhered to. I'm a bit mystified as to how the rules are chosen, as this is the third site we've been on since lockdown and all three (C&MC) had different interpretations. This time around there were four wristbands available, which seemed to cut down on the queuing (outside at least) though as there were only two toilets available in the gents, there was queuing inside! On such a large site, I wonder whether the ratio of 3 toilets to 6 showers was a sensible option when it was refurbished. One thing that hasn't altered though, is how steep that hill is back up to Lamphey. It's 3 years since we last cycled it but it was far tougher this time around!
