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.

A Good All Rounder

We dropped into Freshwater East for four nights on a tour around Pembrokeshire. We were a bit reticent given it was school holidays and knew that the site would be busy. As previously mentioned, if you arrive ahead of one o clock, you will have to wait in the pay and display carpark just outside the site entrance.The site was nearly full but we went onto the lower level at the very back of the site which turned out to be quite peaceful - go for the pitches on the right if you want the sunshine (the ones to the left were in shade). If you haven't got children and there is a choice, stay away from the pitches by the play area - it was mayhem in the evening!! Dog walk is small and ok but quite slippy after rainfall and as is the way - full of kids who seemed to be using it as an off road track - who knows why?? However, to balance this, there is plenty of walking from the site and the beach allows dogs. There is a Coastal Cruiser bus service that stops outside the site which may be of interest to those who want a 'lift out' somewhere and then walk back. Basic shopping at Pembroke which was quite a pleasant town to wander around.

Nice site, but won’t be back.

We have just returned home from a 9 night break with our daughter and grandkids at Freshwater East. The site is up to the expected Club standards and the facilities very clean (although only three toilets in the mens’ block lead to some queuing). Our welcome was good, notwithstanding the problems of a one o’clock earliest booking in and the ensuing bun fight at the entrance which was handled well by the staff. Not so good was the attitude of one male warden who told us that my daughter’s car would have to go on the public pay and display well outside the site, this despite several pitches with up to three cars. A more pleasant lady later came by and told me where we could park the second car on the pitch and it was booked in. The speed of some members through this site was incredible, slowing down ( sometimes) for speed humps before accelerating to the next is NOT acceptable. I found it mildly amusing to hear the bump and clatter from the Caravans being towed too fast over these humps by some, I would hate to think what a mess ensued inside. I feared for the safety of both children and the many dogs on site. My grandson was not happy when I told him he couldn’t play ball ANYWHERE on the site, and when he and his sister found a piece of grass away from other Caravans to throw a soft rubber frisbee ring, the occupant of the nearest pitch told them to stop. Good for families? Yes, but only outside the site. Maybe the Club should add children to the “all dogs must be on a lead” rule.

A holiday to remember!

We visited Freshwater last week for our first break in South Wales with the caravan. We stayed six nights and wished we could have booked more. The site was clean and well cared for, with excellent shower blocks. The neighbouring beach was fantastic and very well used without being overcrowded. We visited many places but our favourite was a boat trip from Tenby to Caldey which was so beautiful and clean we even swam for a couple of hours before taking one of the regular boats back to Tenby. My own opinion is that the holiday was probably one of our best ever. Thanks to all the staff! Ann and Peter,
Caravanner from Lancashire

Nice site

We only stayed for one night. The site is very long. The shower & toilet blocks were spotless & looked like they had been refurbished. The only disappointment was yapping dogs from other visitors. We would revisit though.

Excellent site and facilities only spoilt by barking dogs

Wonderful location, friendly helpful staff. Great location for exploring the coast. lots of hills though. Not so relaxing on site though as there were several dogs nearby that were taking it in turns to yap which eventually drives you insane! I am baffled as to how the owners put up with it. On the plus side all of our neighbours had dogs that were absolutely fine.
