A lovely Dog and child friendly site

We stayed at Windy Hill in Aug 14 with our new born baby, 5 year old boy and our dog. This was our second time at Windy Hill. We love the big open field which lovely and quiet. Waking up in the morning to rabbits and pheasants on the field. John is lovely. The site has rules which keep our children and our belongings safe. Oggy was barking one afternoon when we were out. She was in the awning on a long lead. John came down and put her in her crate for us. He later came to us and asked if we minded. of course we didn't and felt bad that the dog had been barking but it was due to somebody playing ball next to the caravan which is not permitted and they were asked to stop playing. If dogs are off the lead you will be asked to leave if you do not abide by the rules which I completely agree with when young children are around playing just incase. The play area is lovely and has a baby swing which is very well kept. Its a must see site with a nice walk to saundersfoot and Wisemans Bridge. We will be back another year. Thankyou John for a lovely holiday. We hope you are well.

Good location, but didn't like approach

This is a lovely large mown field with a children's play area, ladies and gents toilet and showers. Showers take 10p coins, but found you would need 30p-40p for a shower. Directions in the book say to turn left at the signpost for Sardis, there is no sign there now, so be careful. We ended up going through Kilgetty to the roundabout to go back and look again. The Iron Man challenge was on the day we arrived, but as we do not know the area were not aware until we were almost there and came across numerous road closed signs. Majority of the local roads were closed as well as the A4075 and A478. We were travelling from Haverfordwest direction and had to divert to St Clears. If we had been told of this event by the owners when booking, we would have arrived a day earlier or a day later as we felt we wasted a day of our holiday. All roads to Tenby and Saunsdersfoot were closed on the day we arrived. The access road is narrow with some passing places, but this road is also used by local buses. The entrance is also a tight turn, so although it says no maximum outfit length, we would disagree as we scraped our caravan on the brick wall when trying to turn right into the site. It is a very tight turn. On leaving the site, we chose to turn right of the site and drive down to the church to turn around so that we could leave the way we arrived. After pitching and levelling, we noticed that there was a very small sign on the electricity point to say not to pitch within 4 metres of this point or you could be asked to move. We weren't asked to move, but if this is a rule, then it should be pointed out before pitching and levelling. Agree there are too many signs. Why not put them all on one notice board. Commercial site adjacent, but no noise from here. Slight traffic noise at night from A477, but we are used to living in a very quiet road where we don't hear any traffic noise. Probably wouldn't bother most people.

August Bank Holiday week 2014

Our stay during late August was very enjoyable. We loved the quiet site and the space available. We were also happy that the pitch we chose was secluded and level. The welcome on our arrival was nice and friendly and we were able to select the pitch we preferred too! The facilities are good for the CL site, although the toilet block was somewhat tired. Showers were within the toilet block, but were nicer. We liked the area as it is close to Tenby and West Wales. The directions were good to the site with a tight left hand turn and a road to the site that was a little narrow in places, but we didn't have any problems. Overall I would recommend the site as it has everything needed for an enjoyable stay.

Fab site

We visited this lovely site for seven nights in early July and had a truly wonderful stay. We met the owner on several occasions and he was extremely friendly, attentive and nothing was too much trouble.  The site is huge and the pitches are ideally positioned to give adequate privacy.  We had the perfect pitch at the far end which didn't require any levelling blocks.  There are separate toilets for ladies and gents (two in each) and two separate showers.  You need to pay for the showers so you need 10 pence coins. We found 30p was adequate. The showers were kept lovely and clean.  There was a folding chair and ample drying area.  The site was well maintained and yes there are signs which we didn't have an issue with. Unfortunately, in all walks of life, there are some who spoil it for others so if it means signage needs to be displayed, we would personally prefer this and it shows the owner really cares about his site ensuring everyone enjoys their stay. There are several lovely walks from the site. One of which is down to Wisemans Bridge and then along the coastal route through a couple of tunnels, to Saundersfoot.  We also walked to Tenby which we didn't realise how hilly and far it was but it was a relief to know we could get the bus back which dropped us off at the bottom of the site lane. Stackpole is definitely worth a visit on a hot summers day; a must! A perfect holiday at a perfect site.

A Gem in Pembrookshire

We are reluctant to review this C.L as it is our favourite of all C.L's. We have been using this site for the past 18 years and we think it could easily win C.L of the year,but we try to be secretive about it. However for some strange reason this site has had 2 negatve reviews which we know has upset the owners Libby & John Maddox, they are the lovliest caring family that you wish for and their sole ambition is to look after their cliental. At least 75% of the their trade is returning Caravan/Motor Home clients,so I am sure that speaks for it self,nobody goes to bad places twice I am sure.By writing this review we have probably made it more difficult for ourselves to book in the future,but these nice people don't deserve bad press. PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A TRUE AND HONEST REVIEW .A.D.P 1963

Too many rules

A very good CL  field, not many level areas however. Access road is narrow and tricky, particularly as it is used by buses and forestry vehicles. Facilities are excellent but there is a profusion of signage of a threatening nature which doesn't fit in with a CL. This is possibly a spin off from the adjacent commercial site. Didn't see anything of mine host for the two weeks after we had paid. Obviously prefers signs.

Signed Off

The site field is very sloping so caravans need to pitch around the perimeter-make sure you have plenty of levelling blocks. This is a fairly quiet site in the countryside but the owner has signs everywhere warning of the consequences of not abiding by the instructions. He seems to have a particular paranoia about dogs(although he charges an extra £1 per night per dog) and will actually watch you returning from the dog walk to check if you have a bag of poo in your hand. If you haven't he will question you! My dog doesn't poo EVERY time she goes for a walk! If you don't have a dog no problem but we did feel we were being watched

Comment from Community Manager: 

Hello Jen47, Many thanks for leaving a review. The CL owner has contacted us because he works really hard to ensure that members have the best possible time on their site and wants to address any concerns raised. Firstly, the information signs are there to help visitors get the most out of their stay and as such we would just like to assure you they are not there to cause offense. During your stay unfortunately there was dog mess found on site and if a dog is spotted fouling the CL owner will either remove the mess or ask that the member removes the mess from the site so as not to impede on other people’s enjoyment. They also ask that dogs are not left unattended or loose on site, which is the same rule on Club Sites. This again is so that other member’s enjoyment is not impeded whilst staying on the site and they do ask that people abide by this. As per previous reviews you can see Windy Hill Farm is in an excellent and peaceful location, which is why the owners try their utmost to ensure members have a relaxing time on their site.

this site is a gem

We stayed for 2 nights in the middle of July . The showers ,toilets and the services were exeptional . The views from the site are over gently undulating farm land .. It is a large well mown field . When we were there only one other caravan was on the field and this was some good 40 yards away .. The owner Mr Maddox was very welcoming and the laundry room has lots of brochures showing things to do . We will certainly be returning .

Beautiful little gem.. Too good to share

Very easy access even in our 7.5 meter motorhome. Lovely large well kept field with spotless toilets and showers and children's play area. Book early though to avoid disappointment. Would hav loved to have returned this summer but they are already fully booked.
