Our Campsite in West Wales

Family camping on the Pembrokeshire, Camarthenshire border.

Our green camping field

We are passionate about our landscape and we want you to enjoy it in all it’s natural beauty so we operate an environmentally friendly campsite here at Cowpots. With only 18 pitches set in 18 acres of fields you will be able to enjoy the wildlife and take your family on a true wild camping adventure!

only 18 pitches in 18 acres

Tree Field has 8 ensuite camping pitches and 2 ensuite Campervan pitches. Tree Field pitches also boast their own under cover eating area!

Our 8 new pitches are situated in the 2 fields above – Middle Field and 4 Acre Field. They include 2 ensuite Campervan pitches and 6 ensuite tent or van pitches.

Ensuite Hot Off-Grid Showers

Using on demand instant gas water heaters to make sure that the hot water is there when you need it for a refreshing shower.

ensuite Composting Toilets

Used by the Eastern world for hundreds of years they are only recently becoming more popular in the West. The composting toilets are highly water saving and produce an end product that can fertilise the soil. An eco friendly solution!

We often get asked if they smell. Martin has been perfecting his toilet design and toilet box changing system over the past 5 years. We can guarantee our toilets are odour free and with our toilet box system, once they are full you can simpy clip the lid down and swap it for an empty one! 

dogs allowed

We welcome up to 2 well behaved dogs per pitch.

Please keep your dog on a lead at all times.

We have a large dog walking field next to our camping fields, once inside this field you may take your dog off the lead.


This year (2022) we will be offering freezer space for ice packs only. As we have grown in size it has become increasingly challenging to provide enough fridge and freezer space for everyone so we will be switching to ice packs only so make sure you bring some icepacks and a cool box to keep your food cool! We will always have some spare icepacks just in case they are needed!

phone charging and hair drying

Our campsite is an ‘off grid’ campsite. We have no electric hook up or power supply in our camping fields. We do offer a space on the farm to charge phones and other devices. This year (2022) we will also have a new, designated hair drying area with mirrors.


The 18 pitches are spread across 3 fields, all campers also have access to a large part of the farm too, including 40 acres of woodland!

In the middle of Tree Field we have a small playing field for families to play football and other games.

All our pitches are spaced out, giving you peace and privacy for your stay!

camping Pitches

Campervan Pitches



Greener Camping

Our rural location on the Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire border means we are only able to operate as a campsite within tight planning controls which protect the environment. To comply with this policy, we are affiliated to the Greener Camping Club. This means we are a Greener Camping Club members-only site. Membership costs £12 for the calendar year. This amount is added to your camping fees when you book. Only one membership is required for each pitch or glamping accommodation booked. Membership includes participation in the club’s Carbon Offset Scheme. This commits us to planting a tree for every booking we take. We’ll issue your membership card upon receipt of your deposit.

Our Family Farm

 Sadly we said goodbye to our small Jersey herd in 2021 🙁

Penback Farm is still a working farm which means that there will be times that tractors will use the lane that leads to the campsite in order to do the necessary operations of farm life. There will still be grass to mow all over the farm.

Enjoy Outdoor adventures

Camping is all about exploring and we want you to have great adventures.

At Cowpots you’re welcome to do all the things that make camping great. Campfires, marshmallows, bbqs, playing and exploring. We only ask that you do this with a little common sense and consideration for our campsite and it’s inhabitants (people and animals).


The campsite at Cowpots will be open from April to October.
