Alan Rogers Review
In a superb rural setting with wonderful views across the countryside towards the sea, Gwaun Vale provides 29 pitches. On mainly level grass, with one terrace above another, connected by an oval, gravel and tarmac road, ten pitches have hardstanding and 21 have 10A electricity connections. There are plenty of water points and several picnic tables. A useful little shop doubles as reception with a well presented display of tourist information and variety of books on local walks, to buy or borrow. One can also borrow a barbecue, iron and board, or a baby bath.
Very convenient for Fishguard and the ferries, day trips to Ireland are possible, as well as windsurfing, boating and fishing trips, and the Pembroke coastal footpath is nearby. A must to see is Wales’ answer to the Bayeux Tapestry, a 100 ft. long tapestry on view in Fishguard (the French invaded Britain in 1797 and the tapestry, embroidered by 70 local women, gives a carefully researched account of this invasion and its defeat – full of life and humour).
The toilet block, beside reception and to one side of the site has been refurbished and is neat, clean and heated. Cheerful laundry room with laundry sink, washing machine and dryer and two dishwashing sinks. Shop. Play area in a small sloping fenced field with adventure type equipment, and a field for dogs adjoining. New entrance barrier (£5 deposit for key) – if reception is closed, telephone for a key.
