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.

Peaceful Stay

Freshwater East Caravan Club Site
Having read a couple of poor reviews on the club website we arrived in trepidation, but the person on the arrivals desk was welcoming and efficient. The site was up to the usual club standard and our serviced pitch was flat and roomy, the only issue being the fact that Freshwater East is very poor for phone and TV signals. However, we purchased an extension lead for the TV aerial and plugged it into the bollard, so that was solved. The free wi-fi was also useful, as it allowed us to look things up on the internet , use Wi-Fi-calling on the phone, etc. Whether this would have been possible in peak season is doubtful, but the site was quiet in mid-October, with staff re-seeding grass pitches, painting kerbs and doors etc. in readiness for the autumn shutdown. The walks along the coast were gorgeous and we will probably return to explore the area again.

Why did I have to have a serviced pitch

Freshwater East Caravan Club Site
I tried to book a pitch online but it said the site was full, I then rang freshwater east site and was told that they only had one serviced pitch available which was fine however we spent 3 nights there only to find that there where empty hard standing pitches all over the site for the whole weekend. After speaking to other members I found that they had also been told that there where only serviced pitches available. Please could someone explain why this has happened. The site itself is really nice and we had a great time, we will definitely be going back but hopefully I won't have to spend out on a serviced pitch when other hard standing pitches are free

Such a shame.

Freshwater East Caravan Club Site
We arrived at the site ten minutes early to be met by a most unpleasant 'warden' and there were several vehicles queueing in front of us. It was almost 13.12 when i asked the 'warden' if there was a problem as the queue didn't seem to be moving much, to be told that we were the problem and we should have seen the notice on the way in. We hadn't seen it and accept that yes we did arrive 10 minutes early. However, the man's manner and words were beyond rude. He was aggressive and unpleasant and thereafter never spoke to us as we passed him. On one occasion he actually blocked our access along one of the paths when he was doing a job. We've been members for several years now and have never been spoken to in such a manner, very upsetting. The site itself was fine, very clean and good facilities but what a shame that one man can spoil it for people.

Not the best

Freshwater East Caravan Club Site
Although the site is nicely located just above Freshwater beach and its facilities are to the club's usual high standards, we were disappointed with other aspects of our 3 night stay in September. We arrived after heavy rain and found that there were very few standard pitches unoccupied, those remaining being on grass and all on a slope on the downward side of the access roads. We have a large motorhome and foresaw problems getting off the pitch (all those left had lost their grass due to previously being covered by awnings, so were already muddy, with more rain forecast). When I asked the office about people getting stuck the response was 'We have some mats but otherwise it's up to people to call in a breakdown service). We had parked with our front nearside wheel about 3 ft off the peg to try to ensure we had some grass under at least one side of the vehicle. Shortly after we were set up the site manager arrived and told us we had to move up to the peg and turn the motorhome around. I appreciated that the requirement to park up to the peg was to minimise fire spread (although in my view awnings and barbeques present a far greater risk than a vehicle or caravan catching fire). However I pointed out that I was free to park in either direction, as advised when we checked in. We were fortunate to get a hardstanding space the next morning but on the following day witnessed a camper van unable to get off a grass pitch. they too were told if necessary to call out breakdown. Maybe this is the necessary response but the manager lacked the normal friendly and helpful approach we have always experienced on other club sites. We also noted that throughout our stay 2 empty serviced pitches were available and discovered 2 people who had requested to upgrade to these but were refused. This site is known to be badly drained and needs a much higher proportion of hardstanding, particularly as in our experience this is what most members prefer. This is the first club site we have stayed on where we have found issues with the way the site is managed.

A peaceful site close to a wonderful beach

Freshwater East Caravan Club Site
This was our first stay and to be honest before we arrived I was a little apprehensive after reading the comments. Yes, the rules and wardens are there for a purpose, but they were very polite with me, even after I changed my pitch. When we arrived there were only grass pitches available, these were on a slope and quite muddy so I tried to find the most level and least muddy one. Fortunately directly opposite were hard standing pitches and a motorhome owner told me he was leaving the next morning, so I took his pitch. When I informed the wardens there was no problem at all. Now onto to the toilet blocks. They were immaculate and in the large block there were 7 showers so it was never full. Whole site - very narrow with several levels, and LOTS of trees overhanging that could do with a trim. I parked under a tree on a visit to a previous site thinking it would help keep cool, but all it did was the birds used my roof of my van and awning as a toilet!!! so don't park under trees!! If you want to walk to the beach, then try and get a pitch closer to the entrance as if you are at the back of the site on the lower level then it will be a long trek. I have seen people on reviews moaning about the dog walk. There is an ample one between levels and plenty of room to walk the dog first thing in the morning to save soiling pitches, before you go out for the day. Wifi - as mentioned it is practically non existent, unless you hang around the front of the toilet block. I didn't want to hang around too long for obvious purposes!!! But saying this, you do not go on holiday to sit on your phone all day do you? If you do, then go somewhere else. The site is right at the bottom of the hill over the road from the beach and next door is a superb pub called Jacks at the Longhouse, which was lovely. Ideal for visiting Pembroke. No shops nearby but a petrol station that has a version of Budgens in it in nearby Lamphey. I would happily go there again, mainly for the stunning beach and coast nearby
