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 10 pitches in our  11 acre field you will be able to enjoy the wildlife and take your family on a true wild camping adventure!

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.

Composting Toilets

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

only 10 pitches in 11 acres

The 10 pitches will be spread across half of the field with around 35 meters between each pitch so there will be lots of space.


Tree Field is an 11 acre field, the biggest field on the farm. The 10 pitches will be spread across half of the field – there will be around 35 meters between each pitch so there will be lots of space.

In the middle of the pitches we will mow a small playing field for families to play football and other games.

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 £10 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

We are are a close knit family and all of the animals (and people) on the farm are very important to us. Our animals are much more like pets to us than livestock and we hope you will enjoy spending time with them as much as we do. They can be inquisitive and nervous (just like the humans) so please be kind to them and observe from a distance. Penback Farm is 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. the woods will be topped and there will 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 your 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.
