‎To make sure that everyone who stays with us at Gupton Farm has a great holiday, we have a few simple site rules.

Gupton Farm is in an area of high conservation value, situated on a site of Special Scientific Interest and you will have your own patch of Pembrokeshire National Park to pitch up on. We want to keep this area special for everyone and therefore we do have rules to make sure that people can enjoy the area without causing damage to this unique natural habitat. No one likes hearing about rules, but our campsite rules are created with you in mind, and help to ensure that everyone on-site has the best possible experience and this beautiful landscape remains unspoilt.

Arrival Times

After 2pm and before 6pm.

If you're arriving at our campsites without booking in advance, we recommend you aim to arrive at the beginning of the times above to secure a pitch, or to phone ahead for information.

Visitors must register at reception (before pitching).

If you have pre-booked your pitch and circumstances beyond your control prevent you from arriving within these times, please contact the campsite on 01646 661640 and staff will do their best to assist.

Please park in the car park and use the wheelbarrows provided when pitching in Green field (tented camping only). Campervans can drive onto Furzy Field to pitch/park up.


Dogs are welcome on site (maximum of two per pitch), but please notify us at the time of booking.

Dogs are not allowed on the permissive footpaths where the bird hide is situated due to ground nesting birds, however you can walk your dog from the campsite to the beach on the bridleway where there are no dog restrictions. Dogs are allowed on Freshwater West Beach.

We have three fields and one hardstanding pitch with electric hook up away from the main camping fields.

Campfires and Barbeques are not allowed on the camping field due to the sensitive nature of the site; however we do have a designated fire pit and barbeque area.

Please make use of the fire pits provided. Cut logs, firelighters and matches can be purchased from the reception shop.


Cooking inside tents is NOT permitted and can be lethal due to carbon monoxide poisoning. We do have a wet weather barn with picnic benches so you can cook/eat undercover.
