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.

Great location

We returned to this site for the first time since a visit in 1997 and found little had actually changed. Still had great facilities and of course a superb location for visiting the South West of Wales. The wardens were efficient and helpful although not perhaps as Friendly as we usually see on club sites. The rules in place to cover the current Pandemic were simple and seemed to be obeyed and we never had to wait for showers or toilets. We are caravaners and decided to book a fully serviced pitch as this allows us more scope to use the on-board shower. It was surprising to see most of the serviced pitches taken by Motorhomes, which as they tend to have on board water and waste don’t really need or tend to use the full service facilities. I therefore wonder why they book them when they are more useful for caravans. Overall we had a great time with unexpected fantastic weather for the middle of October and will certainly not wait another 23 years before returning.

Lovely location within a short walk of a huge beach.

Freshwater East site is in a lovely location just a short walk from a huge dog friendly beach. The site is well maintained and facilities spotless. Covid H&S measures are in place with sanitiser on all service points. Wardens were pleasant but not over friendly which is unusual for CMC sites that we've visited. The site includes hard standing and grass pitches which are good sizes, but some of the grass pitches are sloping. Due to the layout of the site, many of the pitches are behind trees & hedges so get little sun most of the day. There is a good dog walk (not secure) on site. The Freshwater Inn (situated in the village at the top of a very steep hill) serves excellent food. The location of the site itself is great for visiting the tourist spots of Pembrokeshire with the seaside towns of Tenby and Saundersfoot a 30 minute drive away. Nearest large supermarkets are in Pembroke itself (about 7 miles). Those with motorhomes may find the site a bit too secluded and the area is very hilly if depending on cycles for shopping and touring around.

Great location!!

First time here, but this is a site we'll definitely come back to. The site is so conveniently placed for visiting this wonderful area. We were here during the time of covid but we thought the systems in place around the facilities blocks worked very well. Just pick your times. Well done to all the staff and visitors who made things work!!

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.
