Great CL

This is a great CL with lovely owners. The toilets and showers are clean and serviceable. Not quite sure what the recycling regime is for the area but it did seem a little confused. No WiFi but could tether to my phone although somewhat intermittent. Radio cover was good, can't comment about about TV. Location of site was just right for us being fairly close to Marloes and the area of the coastal path we wanted to explore. Can recommend this site and will certainly be returning.

Heaven In Wales

My family (myself, husband, grandfather and 5 children) have been staying on this wonderful site for nearly 15 years (sometimes twice a year). The owners Helen and Matthew and previously their parents have always made us welcome. Not sure why previous reviews state that the facilities are old, the toilets and shower are impeccably clean and are no different to any porcelain toilet. We are keen cyclists and walkers and are able to leave straight from the site onto quiet lanes and cycle or walk to many local beautiful beaches, coast paths and pretty villages. This site offers outstanding value for money, where else can you stay for £12 per night, per unit with awning and including electricity and hot showers?! The grass is regularly cut, seems to be done on a Saturday when the previous weeks caravaners have left and before the next weeks arrive. Unless of course it's heavy rain. This is a gem of a site, and most definitely my favourite out of the many I have stayed on over the years in many parts of the British Isles.

Disappointing

We arrived at this CL and the grass was very long, as we are a motor home we parked as close to the tarmac strip as possible so that we knew we could get off as it had been raining that morning. The facilities were old and dated, although kept fairly clean. The bin in the toilets was overflowing when we arrived and had still not been emptied when we left. There was no toilet roll or hand soap either. We decided to walk to Little Haven and Broad Haven and the first road you walk along is quite scary at times as is very busy. The little area at the back of the site for dogs was good, although I had to dodge the nettles and overgrowth to get there. We only stayed 2 nights and didn't see the owner at all. It was on our day of departure that we had to go looking for her to pay her. At £13 a night we felt that if more time and attention was taken to keeping the grass cut and the facilities clean and tidy it would be worth it but as my title says we were very disappointed.

Enjoyable stay

I had a three night stay and a great welcome when I arrived. There was a good choice of pitches to choose from and everywhere is fairly level. The facilities are a bonus and are kept very clean. A great base to explore the beaches, harbours and beauty spots in the area. This is a very nice CL and I look forward to my next visit to Upper Bushford.

Lovely site!

We have just returned from another great stay at Upper Bushford. This was our third visit to this site and we stayed for 10 nights. We arrived to a warm welcome from Helen who was cutting the grass. Our pitch was spacious, plenty of room for our caravan, awning and car. There were 3 other pitches taken when we arrived and all was quiet and peaceful as always. Even during the Bank Holiday weekend when the site was full - it was still peaceful and we had plenty of room and space. The site is surrounded by bushes, shrubs and mature trees and hedges which gives wonderful shelter on windy days. At the bottom end of the site through a gate is a dog walking area with a bench under a tree where one can sit and leave the dog(s) roam free. Our collie loved his evening stroll down there. This site is a real find. How often does one find a CL that has 2 toilets and a shower, easy access and easy pitching in a beautiful location and all for the great value of £12 per night. We are very happy to have found it. (I would like to point out that one of the previous reviewers comments about the facilities is wrong - there IS a wash basin in the toilet block as well as one in the shower room.) Helen and her family are lovely people and always warm, welcoming and helpful. The area around is beautiful - so many little bays and beaches and coastal villages to enjoy. We have loved every visit we have made to this site and we cannot wait to go back again next year!

Disappointing

Very disappointed with this site. When we arrived there were already 5 vans on it and ours made 6. I had a word with a family member of the owner and he said it was ok as the local Caravan Club inspector was a good guy and he would turn a blind eye!!!!!!!!!!!!!! To make matters worse on day 2 of our weeks holiday van number 7 turned up, and had to park 6.4m from our van (only just outside the safe distance recommended ) I go to a CL for a quiet break ,this was more like a club site . We found the facilities adequate but very tired . I am sorry this could be a great site BUT WE WILL NOT BE BACK.

The location is the the only good thing about this site

We were not impressed by this site at all. Like the previous reviewer's experience the site was overcrowded and it is clear this is a regular occurrence. When we arrived on Thursday there were already 6 units on the site and we set up on a well-worn pitch that had clearly been vacated that morning. I think there were five electric hook-up points each with two connections! The field is NOT 1 acre as stated in the listing, it is smaller so the caravans are nearly as close as they would be on a large campsite, which completely misses the point of a CL. One unit is clearly kept there and the owners of it come and go as they please, which I didn't think was allowed on a CL. The grass had not been cut for several weeks (it was eventually cut on the day we left), and all the facilities are very tired. Yes, there are toilets and a shower but they are old (although clean) and there is no handwash basin in the toilets, only in the shower which one has to go outside and in another door to access. The driveway is full of potholes and the hedges need cutting - maybe then one could see if there is a view, at the moment one can only see the hedges. The owner was very nice but clearly doesn't have time to run it properly: she told us she is a deputy head and has taken on a pub in a nearby village (presumably with her husband but we never saw him), as well as running the CL. Time, effort and a change of attitude is needed on this site to make it worthy of being a Caravan Club CL. The only good points are the location with access to the local area for walking, cycling and places of interest. Would we stay here again? No, definitely not.

Good Location

Booked this CL mid July but arrived at mid day Saturday to find 4 designated pitches taken and a reserved notice on the 5th. Helen said we could pitch up anywhere directing us to a quiet spot at the back of the filed. Quiet, but long wet grass, dodgy if the weather hadn't been good. Monday 6th caravan arrived and Tuesday 7th caravan arrived. Site felt overcrowded. Don't think this was an overlap/oversight. For 6 caravans maybe but not 7.

One of the best!

We just returned from 12 nights at this lovely campsite. It was our second visit and I was determined this time to remember to do a review. The site is very pretty and garden like with easy access off the Haverfordwest to Dale road. It has a nice little dog walk at the far end. Two toilets and good showering facilities are a bonus and it's all very peaceful and relaxing. Helen and the rest of the family are so friendly, welcoming and helpful and they make the site a pleasure to stay on. The site's position in the middle of the beautiful Dale Peninsular means that nowhere is far to go. We enjoyed Dale, Marloes, Little Haven, Broadhaven, Sandy Haven, St Ishmaels, St Brides and the occasional trip to Milford Haven where you can sit at the Rath and enjoy the views of the ships etc or stroll around the Marina. Milford Haven (about 5 miles) has a Tesco and many other shops as does Haverfordwest about 8 miles away. I cannot recommend this site highly enough - we love it so much we have already booked to go back in August! It's one of the very best!  And all for £12 per night! Brilliant! Smile

A great CL

This is a great CL - warm welcome, good facilities and spacious.  It is well situated for touring the whole of Pembrokeshire but the nearest place with facilities is Little Haven - this is a nice cove, good walks and has a great pub called Swan Inn which has by far the best eating out experience in Little Haven.  Will be back when again in Pembrokeshire to both the CL and pub
