Campsite questions

What is there to see and do at Gupton Farm?

Gupton Farm’s the base from which you can explore Freshwater West and the wider landscape. Nestled in a cwtch-like hollow, our farm feels a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

It’s a place to escape, reconnect with nature and breathe in the salty sea air; wake up to striking sunrises, unwind with equally spectacular sunsets and enjoy stargazing after dark.

You can follow our network of footpaths from the campsite, go wildlife watching at the nearby bird hide or head straight to the beach for sandy adventures.

When is the campsite and farmhouse accommodation open and how do I book?

Gupton Farm campsite and farmhouse accommodation is open! We accept pre-bookings and drop-ins on the day if there is availability.

If you'd like to book, please use the online booking system at the bottom of the page. Alternatively, you can contact the team on 01646 661640.

Is there parking on-site?

Yes, parking is included as part of your stay. Vehicles aren’t permitted in the camping fields, so we provide free wheelbarrows for transporting kit from the car park to your pitch.

Are campervans allowed?

Yes, campervans are welcome. We have 5 grass pitches with electric hook-up and 1 hard standing pitch with electric hook-up.

Are caravans allowed?

Due to space and facilities, we don’t accept caravans at the campsite.

Is Gupton Farm dog-friendly?

Well-behaved dogs on leads are welcome at the campsite. Please note that restrictions are in place on the permissive paths to minimise disturbance to the wildlife. Dogs are also welcome on Freshwater West beach and bridleway. Please keep your dogs under close control and put dog poo bags in the bins provided. 

What else do I need to know?

We share this remote and rugged peninsula with the Ministry of Defence; our neighbours use the Castlemartin Range as a military training area. Live firing can be heard from the campsite, so please don’t be alarmed. You can view the firing schedule on the MoD website.
