This is a Certificated Site (CS). These select sites are small, privately run campsites that operates under the Club’s jurisdiction and can only accommodate up to 5 caravans or motorhomes and up to 10 trailer tents or tents, unless express permission has been given by the Club to accommodate more. They range from secluded Hideaways to fully facilitated family friendly sites, and are often found in locations where larger commercial sites are prohibited so you could be camping close to a beach or in the National Park, for example.
Cresswell Barn Farm is ideally situated for exploring Pembrokeshire. If you are looking for a peaceful, small and unspoilt campsite then you have found it here. Located next to a tranquil river, the Meadow of the farm offers everything traditional camping in Pembrokeshire needs. Surrounded by nature, with a daily supply of fresh eggs and seasonal vegetables, straight from the farm, you are also just a 5 minute stroll from the village pub "Cresselly Arms" set on the banks of the Cleddau Estuary. The farm is also just a stones throw from beautiful walks, and short drive from beaches and restaurants and local attractions.
Toilet and shower not on field but approx. 120mtrs up oak tree lined lane, located at the farm buildings.

A little gem of a site.
We stayed here as a family for 8 nights, 2 adults and a 4 year old. On arrival we located our pitch and soon were set up in a lovely looking field, a really peaceful location.
A bit of a look around and discussion with other members on site soon directed us to the toilet and shower. There is only one of each a short walk away up at the farm but this wasn't an issue for us. In fact we only queued twice during the visit. On our third day a portaloo arrived on the field which was an added bonus. There were mostly caravans and motorhomes on site during our stay so the facilities were not in too high demand anyway.
Fiona, the owner, was lovely and came down most days to speak to everyone and check we were all ok, or remove Lilo the farm dog who loved to visit us. He was very friendly and no trouble (our Frisbee however did not make it home in one piece as the small child and dog played very enthusiastically with it!)
There are two fields and we were in upper meadow. Both have plenty of space per pitch and some lovely long grass for playing in. Water and waste disposal are nearby and it's so quiet as night. We loved our holiday and were genuinely sad to come home. We're already planning on booking again next year.

Peaceful and relaxing
You will receive the warmest of welcomes from Fiona before pitching your tent in the spacious meadow. This really is the perfect setting for a relaxing holiday, on a beautiful farm in the middle of nowhere but with easy acces to the nearby coastal towns and beaches. We camped with our young son who immediately made friends with the other children in the meadow, they had a whale of a time exploring the brook that runs round two sides before entering a small shallow river. The trip to the farm to use the facilities took ages as we had to visit the farm shop to buy eggs, potatoes and beans, stroke all the dogs, cats and horses!!! The facilities are limited but the plus points far outweigh the negatives. We will go back.

Delightfully peaceful and relaxing.
A wonderful gem of a campsite, secluded and peaceful, somewhere you can unwind.
Fiona and Ian are very, very friendly and the welcome you receive is second to none.
Facilities are basic and limited (1 shower, 1 static toilet and 1 porta-loo) but we have found more than adequate although it does help to have your own toilet.
In the heart of Pembrokeshire so allows easy access to all other areas and a great central base to enable you to go exploring.
Local to the site are a couple of great pubs, The Cresselly Arms which doesn't serve food, the other, The Lawrenny Arms, does and it's extremely good but booking is essential.
Highly recommended, we'll be back next year hopefully.

A nice flat field with a stream running down the rear of the pitches, down side is only one toilet and one shower, could do with more when the site is full. But its well worth a visit, loved the area and owners are great, we will visit again.
