Alan Rogers Review
Described by the owners, June and Joe Folder, as an estuary-side naturist and nature reserve, this is indeed a naturist site with a main camping field for 20 units. Of the 20 well spaced undulating grass pitches, 16 have 6A electricity. Readers who have ventured to enjoy some of the naturist sites featured in our France guide or Southleigh Manor in Cornwall may be intrigued to visit Tything Barn. Stretching down to the backwaters of the Milford Haven estuary, it is situated in 23 acres of ancient quarries where meadowland and springy turf edge the salt marsh which is covered by spring tides.
The main seawater lagoon of two acres is suitable for swimming and has access steps, a diving platform and a little beach for toddlers. Fishing is possible on the incoming tide flowing up the gullums (gullies) or messing about on boats either side of the tide, and children can enjoy crabbing when the water is out. Parents do need to be responsible for children in this type of environment. It is possible to walk in ten acres of secluded grounds dissected by inlets and lagoons. For those wishing to explore the aspects of naturism, Tything Barn could be a suitable stepping stone. The site is idyllic if you are seeking an unspoilt, tranquil setting; Pembrokeshire offers something for everyone, from cathedral to castles, coastal walks, fishing, and boat trips to view grey seals and dolphins.
The limited sanitary facilities are used by both sexes, very clean but basic. In high season, one may have to wait for one of the unscreened showers or use of the dishwashing sink. Washing machine and dryer. Use of freezer and fridge and cooking possible. The ‘Flower House’ or ‘The Tunnel’ is a large polythene rounded greenhouse for relaxing or socialising when the weather is inclement. It is paved, tastefully planted with tropical plants and has a soothing water feature. Small library. Croquet, boules and badminton. Events are never organised they just happen. Two cottages and two log cabins to rent.
