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.

LOVELY SITE NEAR FANTASTIC BEACH

Visited September 2019. My husband had booked this site as it was central, as meeting a couple of friends at the same site. When I read some of the reviews I was a little cautious as other caravan and motorhome sites we had stayed on were so friendly. What I will say is you can take on board reviews but visit and find out for yourself. On booking in I walked through the door and was greeted with a Hello Mrs ***** think it was a good guess due to our numberplate but it was an excellent start. The lady was very friendly and gave good advice on where best it would be to pitch up as our friends would be on the pitch next door. The site itself is very big but well maintained. The toilet/shower blocks as usual were of a high standard and very clean. I had read one review that no staff were ever seen on site - however this was not the case there was always someone around, collecting rubbish, cleaning, mowing the grass etc and they were all very friendly. We have a very old dog who cannot walk very far so we have to use a pram so very limited on walks but it was a 5 minute walk to local pub and beach which was lovely. There is another nice pub in the village but its up a very very steep hill BUT it was well worth the walk as good location and very nice food and friendly staff. Visited Tenby about 15/20 min drive away which was lovely. Excellent stay and likely to stay here again in the future. Wifi on site is hit and miss and has to be paid for but it is what it is as phone signal in the area is terrible but at least you can't be contacted which added to the peace and quiet.

Campsite next to the beach

An August bank holiday stay, the site is in a an excellent position to discover all the different beaches in the area. Freshwater East is calm and sheltered, Freshwater west is quite wavy and good for surfing. Barafundle is a great sheltered beach. Dogs seem to be allowed on most if not all the beaches in the area. Most car parks at the beaches are national trust. The site had excellent WiFi coverage throughout the whole site, it does go a bit slow in the evening, and is at its fastest in the early morning. No mobile phone coverage at all on the site, you’d have to go to the beach or the top of the hill for a signal. The rear of the site is quietest, at the top for families with kids using the playground, at the bottom for members wishing to stay clear of the kids and the playground. Toilets are usual high quality. Two toilet blocks. Would recommend the Stackpole Inn for food, not cheap but excellent quality. 5 min drive, 20 min cycle or an hour walk. 20 minutes from Pembroke Dock with retail parks and Tesco/Asda. Smaller shops and a co-op in Pembroke which is about 12 min drive away.

An enjoyable mid summer break

We last visited this site about 10 years ago, and decided to come again during school holidays with our 14 year old granddaughter and the dogs. We pitched at the far end of the site on the second level and had good pitch which was quiet. The facilities were as ever spotless with good showers. the wardens came round in the mornings and afternoons to clear the waste bins and hose down the chemical loo disposal area, and were very friendly. The beach near is great with good swimming and Barafundle is only an hours walk over the coastal path. The only pub at the top of the hill doesn't take reservations during the holiday times so we had to wait 40 minutes for the order to be taken, but the food then came quickly and was very good. Overall we really enjoyed our visit to Freshwater East and the surrounding area. So much so that our granddaughter was asking about next year's booking !!!!

First time visit

Having travelled 6 hours to this site which is not sign posted until the end of the drive way we arrived at 12.35pm to be told to get off site until 1pm. The warden was most rude and told us didn’t we see the cones? The cones were behind the club sign. (On other days the cones were placed on the roadway.) There was no greeting at all. Then at 1pm when we did check in and we questioned that we had booked the correct pitch we had a short sharp reply again. In all our visits to sites we have never experienced such rudeness. Throughout the week of our stay these wardens are the only wardens we have never seen around the site doing various jobs. We can count on 1 hand the times we saw a warden and they never spoke to us. The information hut was useless. These wardens need to visit some of your other sites to see how ‘good practice ‘ is done. We shall never return to this site and there was a lot of disgruntled visitors.

Comment from the Club:

Thank you for your review. The site staff at Freshwater East have been in touch as they work hard to ensure all members have a wonderful time at the site and are always helpful, greet everyone with a smile and work on site each day, often stopping to chat to members. With regards to early arrivals, the site has a 1pm arrival time which is due to the site access. Only one vehicle can pass through the entrance at a time. There is a sign which states no arrivals before 1pm and there is also a large car park where members can park if they arrive early. We hope this clears up any confusion with regards to arrival. if you ever have any concrs when staying on a Club site we welcome members feedback and the best way to get this to the right department  is via our feedback, complaint and compliments procedure which can be found on our website here: https://www.caravanclub.co.uk/contact/compliments-and-complaints/

No internet connection

We stayed on a serviced pitch on this site from the 16th August. We had to cut our holiday short because there was no WiFi available on the lower section of pitches which incorporated the service pitches. It was advertised as a 'Silver' rating on the WiFi.
