Reviewer: Mattarbon 1 review from this member

We arrived home yesterday from a visit to Hill Fort Tipis and cannot recommend the site highly enough.

The location is stunning. The website does not do it justice if you are researching potential sites for glamping or camping. The site is enormous with a maximum of 15 pitches in total across different fields. You will never be overcrowded because there is so much space between pitches. I have stayed on plenty of campsites where you are allocated a small amount of space with neighbours very close on their allotted patch, this place allows you privacy. Even if you had noisy neighbours, which we didn’t, you wouldn’t hear them because they would be 50 metres away as a minimum.

I was amazed by the small number of pitches. Some campsite owners would have 100 pitches in the space Hill Fort have but the ethos of the place is in keeping with the Pembrokeshire National Park. Peace and beauty.

From the (on site) craggy mountain tops which you can climb easily with the kids (mine are 4 and 6), to the coastal headland, sea views and rural vista, the place has scenery and serenity which needs to be experienced. It is a very peaceful site, tucked away down country lanes with no traffic noise.

The owner and his team were incredibly helpful. They dried us out when the tent leaked, making cups of tea at the house and offering dry clothes. They lent us binoculars to spot Peregrine Falcons on the coastal path, made bacon sandwiches while we dried out by the fire, found us spare tent pegs and were a constant source of humour and advice on local beauty spots whilst allowing us privacy. Nothing was too much bother for them and they really are top guys.

The tipis are fantastic too, they look really spectacular set against the scenery, very spacious inside and will appeal to the glampers out there.

We found the washing and shower facilities clean, charming and simple, set inside a converted horsebox with a hot-tub outside!

We will be return as will every other camper we spoke to there.

We have just returned from a week staying in a tipi for the first time. My wife and four children (5 months to 12 years old) have had a wonderful time, despite experiencing the worst weather the area has had for quite a while.

The site is wonderful and the nearest thing to wild camping one can do with young children. Steep crags and gorse strewn fields stretch out on all sides with spectacular views over the bay and surrounding countryside. Our kids could range freely, our four year old disappearing with a new friend to climb and explore in relative safety whilst developing great risk assessment skills.

Facilities are basic but clean and in keeping with the landscape and ethos of the site. Goodwick is a short drive away and wood for open fires is available from the owner.

The whole site was rained out on the Monday - tents were damaged and the wind, gusting up to 70 mph, made tipi living interesting to say the least. The owner invited all the families into his home, dried us out and fed us a wonderful meal, washed down with wine and finished off with trifle and cake for the kids. His generosity of spirit made what could have been a nightmare for parents a special experience for all of us. The children adored him and the freedom the site was able to offer.

We will definitely visit again and would recommend the site to anyone looking to recapture a carefree holiday for children lacking in today's frantic and risk-adverse culture whilst enjoying spectacular vistas and warm and generous hosts.

My partner and I took our own tent and probably survived the first night gale because of it. So happy we did because once the storm passed it left behind the most beautiful spot for a campsite we've stayed on. Wonderful views towards all points of the compass and a feeling as though the hilltop is yours alone.

John is the most helpful and friendly of owners and was always willing to help us out or just pass the time of day or evening.

Toilets and showers were clean and the water hot, even if the housing of them was on the eccentric side.

If you want a camping experience where you feel part of the great outdoors in which you and your tent are in then this is the place. We'll be back.

Reviewer: CommerCamper 1 review from this member

This campsite is perfect for people who want to escape a busy life. It's situated on a nature reserve - so the facilities have to be temporary and are, therefore quite basic. Don't expect to plug in your TV here (though it's probably not your kind of place if you want TV, anyway). However, this is compensated for by the beautiful, unspoilt views and the amount of space separating each pitch.

Really the best thing about this place is the warm welcome - we were greeted with friendliness even though we turned up at 10pm. Nothing spoils a holiday more than campsite fusspots but here you will find kindness, generosity and freedom.

To wake up at 5:30 with the sun and walk up the hill, past the looming rock outcrops, to see the sea across the fields below is a lovely experience - all you can hear is cattle and the odd gull.

The site is within short driving distance of Goodwick & Fishguard - easy access to coast road and all it has to offer. Lovely cycling area too, if you have strong legs.

It is a bit more expensive than the usual side-by-side pitch campsite but overall, what you are paying for is privacy, tranquillity and the beautiful views - with an obliging disposition thrown in for free - I think it's worth it.

I have been to the pen parc site a few times now and every time I gGo I am struck by the beauty and serenity of the place. There are no roads near by and the nearest small group of houses are quite some way out of sight. The view is fantastic, right the way around 360 degrees. There is a mountain to the right of you, a huge rolling green valley to the left and what looks like a sparkling lagoon in front. It is one of the highest points around, but is sheltered by the Welsh mountain next to it from the weather and there is an unobstructed view of the sun when it sets out to sea.

There is no noise pollution, no light pollution and no air pollution. You are surrounded by life there, as opposed to being surrounded by noisy, smelly dead things (cars)in a town. I really could not think of a better place to relax and take in the majesty of nature.

Reviewer: Chris.bamber13 1 review from this member

We stayed in a Tipi for a week at the end of July, 2 adults & 2 teenage girls. The Tipis clean & spacious with a sheltered kitchen area outside & a fire pit.

The location is stunning, especially at sunrise & sunset. The proprieters, John & Susanne, are very welcoming, very helpful & can not do enough to make your stay enjoyable.

The site has only opened this year so the facilities are basic, ie porta-loo & porta-shower (always with hot water), but as we're used to camping in a tent it wasn't a problem for us.

There is plenty of space so you're not on top of the next pitch & John wants to keep it that way. There are bound to be teething problems in the first year but John is still trying to improve everything, so hopefully by next year the place will be even better.

There are plenty of things to do in the area for young & old alike. For the more adventurous, we went Coaststeering & on a boat trip around Ramsey Island.

Scolton Manor is worth a visit if you like old houses & museums, Oakwood & Blue Lagoon is 30 mins drive & Tenby is about 45 mins drive. John is very helpful in advising places to visit & things to do in the area.

Overall we had a great holiday, apart from the British weather, & will hopefully be returning next year.
