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.

Too many dogs.

This is a lovely site but too many dogs. We had to pitch near the childrens play area and EVERY morning we had to watch the dogs going to the toilet just outside our motorhome on a grass area whilst we were eating our breakfast. Not a pleasant sight. The owners couldn't be bothered to take them to the dog walk which was just a few yards further on. It has to be time for the caravan and motorhome club to restrict the number of the dogs you can take. On the plus side, the site is well situated for lovely walks along the coast and access to lovely beaches. We will return but next time we will try to select a pitch actually overlooking the dog walk so that we don't have to witness the dogs going to the toilet whilst eating our breakfast.

Dog Lovers Heaven

We enjoyed our stay at Freshwater, the toilet facilities were very good, the site itself was also very well maintained. Mobile network signal non existent, so is 4g data network so forced to buy the clubs website log in, which was OK, but not great. ... But wait, this place is overrun by dogs. I have a dog so no claims of "I bet he's a dog hater". If you missed Crufts this year , you can always get your doggie fix at Freshwater. I do not drive 4 hours for some tranquility to listen to dogs barking and whining all weekend. Great site but kerb the influx of dogs guys, the bloke opposite us had 3 greyhounds turned up in a van with a big cage in the back, every time a dog and its owner walked past (which was frequently) , it let fly barking and growling.... Not acceptable and won't, for this reason only be going back. I'm wondering if i have joined a club, which is subliminally a back door for a Dog Owners club in disguise.

Perfect.

A fabulous site in a fabulous location. The site is meticulously maintained, by the team of helpful wardens. The location a few minutes walk from the beach is ideal for families too. The coastal scenery within a short drive is dramatic and beautiful. Greet place for walking, and relaxing. You can hear the waves crashing on the shore at night! Highly recommended

Midterm break at Freshwater East

Beautiful setting and immaculately kept club site a couple of miles from Pembroke. Fresh water east beach was a 5 minute walk from the site - a small, clean sandy beach that our dog and 14 year old son fell in love with. We were reluctant to venture further out from the site area in Freshwater as the weather was dry and sunny and a body board and wet suit from Tesco were all our son needed to while away the hours in the sea. The longhouse restaurant next to the beach served up a delicious evening meal at a reasonable price after a long day. We visited Pembroke castle and Tenby but returned to local beaches in the afternoon. We visited Freshwater West beach (where Dobby from the Harry Potter films was buried in the sand dunes) for a bracing evening stroll. National trust Barafundle bay was a must see beach too but be warned there are steep steps leading down to the beach. The costal path along the top was spotted with orchids and an abundance of other wild flowers. We estimated we were spending just over a tenner each a night for 5 star accommodation with the friendliest wardens who never seemed to stop working around the site to keep it looking pristine. A five star experience and a holiday to remember.

A little bit of paradise!

Fantastic location, Wardens always willing to go above the call of duty and very friendly. Facilities immaculate and site very well maintained. Some of the previous comments/reviews are obviously from very stressed people who want to find fault with everything! Would we visit again? Definitely YES and we would recommend this amazing site to anyone.
