We wanted to create a camping experience which although green and ecofriendly offered comfort and a little bit of luxury. We started small in 2016 with just one Shepherds Hut and a Houseboat in a secluded area of the farm. The former in a grass meadow and the latter on it’s own private small lake. In 2019 we introduced 7 woodland camping pitches, each with their own shelters, picnic tables and fire pits. Imagine sitting around the campfire toasting marshmallows, gazing at the stars, watching the sunset or listening to the early morning bird song.

Kingfisher houseboat was built by master craftsmen to our own specification with stunning lakeside views. An ideal romantic retreat for couples.
THE SHEPHERDS HUT
Dragonfly Shepherds Hut has a cosy interior, fluffy king size bed and bush bath, it is an ideal hideaway for couples.
Dragonfly Campsite is nestled in a 9 acre woodland on our 300 acre organic dairy farm on the edge of the Cleddau estuary. It is a quiet rural location within easy reach of Pembrokeshire’s finest beaches and National Park or a 5 minute drive to Lawrenny estuary where you can launch your own small boats and canoes. Each pitch is in a clearing within the wood and comes with its own shelter, fire pit and picnic table. There is plenty of room to pitch a couple of tents, park your car or campervan and space for the children to play. As there are only 10 pitches it is never crowded or packed and a bit more like a wild campsite with perks. Peace and quiet and enjoying nature with a few creature comforts is what we aim to provide. Whether it is toasting marshmallows around your own campfire or gazing at the stars on a balmy summer’s night, it is a family or couple experience we hope will be memorable. There is a communal area situated in the heart of the campsite no more than 100 meters from any one pitch. Here lies an off grid wash house with wash hand basins, 2 low flushing toilets and 2 hot water showers. Alongside the wash house is a beautiful timber framed canvas covered building for washing up with plenty of hot water and a games area for rainy days.
Please note that Dragonfly Camping is off grid with renewable energy technology and sustainability at the core of our ethos. All of our electricity is supplied via solar panels so there are no 3 pin plug sockets, electric hook-up charging points or Wi-Fi. However there is 4G coverage across some of the site and a couple of USB charging points in the communal area for phones. We will supply 3 ice packs for each pitch daily to keep your cool boxes cool. All our firewood is sustainably sourced from the farm and is included in the price of your booking. You will however have to cut or split the wood to size. A saw and axe will be provided and an induction given if needed. Use of the tools will be at your own risk and liability. We also offer Bush Craft courses for all the family with our resident woodsman Chris Buzzard.

Bruce grew up at Little Pencoed Farm and has been farming here for over 40 years building up his mixed organic dairy herd. Over 300 acres, the farm is a mixture of woodland, grassland, salt marsh and moorland providing a wonderful pasture for the cows and sheep and a unique habitat for many wild animal species. With his son Jacob’s lack of interest in milking cows and uncertainties facing traditional farming at present, Bruce and Nicola looked into farm diversification that would tie in with their organic nature and sustainable ethos. In 2016 the shepherds hut was created followed by the boathouse in 2017. With Jacob fresh back from travels in Asia and Australia, and wanting to join the family business, he decided to make practical use of his skills learnt from graduating in Renewable Energy Engineering. Following almost in his mothers’ (Nicola) footsteps to create dragonfly woodland camping in 2019. They now like to share this space with people wanting to enjoy the outdoor experience at Dragonfly Camping. Only 15 minutes from Tenby!
WE ARE EXCITED TO SEE YOU
