We visited this site as a group of 10 with 2 tents. We had 6 children ranging from 3 – 14. On arrival at the campsite there was no member of staff to greet us. When we did eventually get shown our pitch it was discovered that there had been a mix up with dates and 1 of our pitches was still occupied by a tent. The second pitch was waterlogged. We were advised to squeeze 2 tents onto the waterlogged pitch. We were informed that staff would help us move our tent the next day. The offer of help to move never came so we remained in situ for the rest of the holiday. Our tents were so close together they were almost touching. On one of the days we were there we had a torrential downpour. The pitch flooded and water ran through the porch of one of the tents. Drainage was poor and we spent the rest of the holiday keeping the children out of the deep muddy puddles.
The electric point we were to use was broken with the wires exposed. I asked for this to be repaired as it was a risk, particularly to our young children. A plastic bag was placed over the point (this later blew off and was exposed to the rain).
The campsite is setup for static caravans which have their own facilities. The shower block consists of 1 toilet and one shower per sex. The female shower had only a shower curtain and there was a large hole in the window above it. The toilet seat became broken and was not fixed and the floors near the shower were muddy. Towards the end of the holiday there were approximately 30 people using these amenities.
The owners of the site live in a house next to the site. They used a short cut to get to the site which was at the back of our tent. This meant them walking closely past our tents (which was already cramped into 1 pitch) at various times of the day or evening along with their children. The owners/staff were not very accessible and we often had to catch them as they walked past. The office is rarely manned.
The location of the site to Saundersfoot is good if you are fit and are able to walk up/downhill. The paths are not very wide and I would be wary walking young children down to the beach. Saundersfoot is a lovely beach. The car park on the sea front is £2.50 all day. Tenby is gorgeous and close by, but be prepared to walk your stuff some way to the beach as cars are not allowed within the ‘walled’ town.
Folly farm is well worth a visit and is only a few minutes down the road from the camp site. We easily spent a full day there and you can buy a half price ticket if you want to revisit another day during your stay.
We also visited Oakwood which was another good day out. Pre book tickets on the Internet. It is cheaper and there is no need to queue when you get there.
Saundersfoot and the surrounding beaches are lovely and the area is well worth a visit. If you are planning on booking a static caravan then this site is ideal. However avoid if you are planning on camping or touring
