Reviewer: Bricklayer 22 reviews from this member

 We stayed for a week in high season, the site as stated is spread over 3 fields, - all seem to be well kept, and have a gentle slope, 2 fields appear to be serviced with EHU's

We pitched up in the ' main' field (with the 3 camping pods in. )

You can select your own pitch. There is plenty of space

One good rule is once you are set up they ask for cars to be removed from the field and parked in the car park, so there are tents and caravans and very few vehicles upon the field.

The facilities are ok, - there is a older wc block housed in a steel shipping container, the gents is tired but usable, next to this there is a container with further shower cubicles, there is also a group of toilets round the corner by the ' kitchen/ shipping container'.

Its wales, we had some wet weather, the shower block showed its limitations this during our stay as clearly the grass and the mud gets trampled into the cubicles, - the floors with drains set in had standing water and this didn't drain away. It was not that appealing. But we coped.

There are about 8 individual toilets round the corner next to the kitchen shipping container. These are cleaned daily but out of the 8 or so only about half were ever in use. The remainder were locked shut to keep them clean. In high season this is daft, people were stood waiting outside for a vacant loo.

The kitchen container is serviceable, there is a freezer for ice packs, kettle etc, there are also power points with usbs -so while we were there there were campers using these to charge phones and stuff. There are several sinks for washing up

You can rent barbq's and fire pits and you can buy logs and stuff, there are loads of bins and stuff to keep the site tidy.

Iced cream van visits the site daily at 6pm ish. Well it did during our stay (it was in august,

There are picnic benches scattered around and it seems tenters grab these when they arrive !

The site is quiet, and close to the village of lamphey, there is a small shop at the petrol station here which has all the basics, - you are a 10 minute drive to pembroke with its shops/ supermarkets etc.

The site is ideally situated for visiting tenby, st governs, pendine sands, folly farm, and oakwood and surrounding areas

The site feels quite relaxed, - there were lots of families using the site, but I do wish people would keep dogs on leads and under control,

We had several loose dogs running around during our stay. And loose dogs don't clean up after themselves.

The site overall is ok, - is it worth the fees ? 250 for our week ? erm. There are some great sites out there for the same money.

Its ok, and pembrokeshire is lovely.

 Contrary to the previous review this site is lovely! quiet and rural, choose your own pitch.

There are 3 big fields, 1 only for tents, all have a bit of a slope but there are many flattish places.

The showers, loos and kitchen are kept clean by the new owners who took over this year.

There is good recycling and another large field to exercise dogs.

There are picnic tables dotted around to use, fire pits can be hired and logs bought.

There isn't a children's playground but there is a huge amount of space for them to play in!

There is a good Spar shop at the garage in Lamphey half a mile away.

We spent a happy 5 nights here and would recommend it!

 Dews lake disappoints, the clever branding lifts expectations, but the facilities are atrocious. There needs to be serious investment if they are to continue to charge the high rates, we paid 10 per adult and 6 per child per night, 32/ family per night. Only 2 out of the 3 ladies toilets worked and there were are only 4 showers. The men's toilets overflowed. There were 4 extra portaloos in the field but they were not serviced so the smell from outside was nasty, and the chemical disposal was either blocked or not serviced so this was full also.

This is a beautiful part of wales, barfundle is 10 minutes away, and Tenby 15 minutes it's a shame the site doesn't cater for its guests as its website promises.

On a positive note the Dial inn which is a 5 minutes walk from the campsite in Lampney is a gem, quirky decor, lovely food, very accommodating staff, pool room and beer garden which help when you have energetic kids. Pizza were freshly made and divine, they also would provide a take away.

 Had a lovely stay at this campsite, it's very convenient for Pembroke, Tenby, Freshwater and lots of beaches. We could pitch where we wanted in the electric field but felt that marked pitches would have been better use of space.

The facilities were ok - the toilets are very small and a bit of a squash when there are people also there brushing teeth etc. The showers were lovely and hot, but desperately in need of new shower curtains.

When we stayed the campsite was very noisy at night. Also dogs were meant to be kept on a lead - we took our dogs and adhered to this rule but lots of people didn't.

All in all a nice campsite, but quite pricey considering the facilities.

 Nice staff, beautiful area, close to the lovely Pembroke Castle (which was great for a cloudy day). We were made to feel welcome to pitch up anywhere in the electric hook up field.

Showers and toilets extremely basic (we've stayed in a lot of campsites so are not fussy in the slightest), to be honest they could do with modernising the facilities and putting more in. A kids play park would go down well as would a little shop to buy essentials and let the kids spend a few pence.

We did find it pricey all in all for the kind of camping site it was. Sorry but there are cheaper and more well equipped sites out there.

 Lovely little campsite close to shops and amenities. Garage with shop off license in Lamphey also pub and bakery. McCalls on Lamphey road towards Pembroke 5 mins away. Pembroke and Pembroke Dock with more shops only 10-15 min drive away.

Showers clean and nicely tiled was hot. Toilets clean.

Excellent kitchen with 2 ring hob 2 fridges and a freezer was also spare plates cutlery and pans. Useful for us more forgetful campers. Wheelbarrows provided for taking stuff from car park to tent.

Beth very helpful and pleasant, we fell in love with her dog Bungle. Have suggested a step from kitchen and maybe an arrow on opposite side of road, if coming from Pembroke you can soon shoot by it.

Would definitely stay there again. Wasn't the cheapest in area but facilities made it worth it.

There is noise from the trains but only about 2 hourly and they don't run through night. There is road noise and this may be busier in peak season but we weren't disturbed by it.

 We have just had a very happy stay at this very pretty, relaxed and friendly campsite. Booked a pitch in the electric hook-up field and once we had unloaded and set- up our stuff, and the car was back in the car park, all the children were able to get together to play and run about in the middle of the field safely and happily - free hula hoops and balls were available (also great races in the wheelbarrows!)

It is a great set-up. The camp owner is really friendly, helpful & responsive anything you mention, she does her best to sort out. The kitchen is a top spot with additional crockery / cutlery / pans provided for those who have forgotten anything. Also on offer, spare bin bags, recycling bags, local info, and a communal fridge (& freezer) to keep your milk/ butter / wine/beer etc cold. (Washing machine also available). Showers in loo blocks don't seem to run out of hot water but the other ones do a bit.

The location is great too - v near Pembroke, Tenby and heaps of amazingly gorgeous beaches: we went to Barafundle (good sand & swimming, beautiful beach but 25min walk from car park; Broadhaven (our favourite - great sand, sea & rock-pooling); Manorbier (great rock-pooling & rock- collecting); Freshwater East, Wisemans Bridge etc. Loads of great castles around too - Carew Castle was lovely. Also good boat trips from Tenby - mackerel fishing, Caldey Island etc.

We rented/borrowed a free fire pit, bought some wood for a fiver and toasted marshmallows - and felt v lucky with sensational weather until Hurricane Bertha hit UK and rained (and blew) heavily on our parade the night before and day we left. We have fallen in love with Pembrokeshire and would definitely come back to Dews Lake again. It was fab!
