About this listing
Gorgeous secluded bell tent glamping on the Coast Path between Freshwater West & Broadhaven South. Ideal for romantic getaways, family/friend gatherings, or a hen (or stag) party with a difference. With climbing, surfing, walking & exploring nearby
Located in our secluded & sunlit copse on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, with views south over the Bristol Channel & as far as Lundy Island on a clear day, Sage enjoys similar views to Damson next door. Elderflower is set at the back of the copse, screened by trees. Sloe and Goosegog are nestled beneath a high sheltering hedge in our field across the lane, just a few steps from the Coast Path. Each one has its own private lawn, with plenty of room for outside dining and a campfire.
Ideal for a romantic getaway, for a family gathering or for groups of friends, and especially for a hen (or stag) party with a difference. Can also be booked in conjunction with one of our other 6m bell tents (particularly Sage - which is in a separate but adjoining area) or our 12 person bunkhouse.
We believe in going the whole hog when it comes to glamping, so all our tents come supplied with:
•allergenic orthopaedic mattresses, not the uncomfortable (& cold!) airbeds you might find elsewhere
•camp fire circle, perfect for toasting marshmallows, bottoms, or even toast! (Your first bag of marshmallows and instant light charcoal are on us)
•picturesque & secluded woodland or meadow site, away from the rest of the farm for your privacy
•fully furnished, with antique & vintage furniture inside the tent and garden furniture for outside dining
•wicker picnic hampers with all the plates, bowls, mugs, wine glasses, tumblers, and cutlery you need for 8 people, even down to salt & pepper and bottle openers
•solar & candle lanterns, chandeliers & fairy lights inside & out, for romantic yet reliable lighting
•your own off-grid piping hot shower & loo, so you don't have to wander all the way back to the farmhouse in the middle of the night or share with anybody else
•sheltered location with unobstructed views down the hill over countryside to the sea
•plenty of pillows, cosy duvets, cushions, rugs and blankets, so you'll be snug even on the coolest nights
•well equipped outdoor camp kitchen, complete with full range of pans & other necessities; 4 ring gas hob; and even the kitchen sink with hot & cold running water - for a great 'outdoor cooking' experience without roughing it *too much!
•beautifully decorated, complete with our hand printed bespoke bunting
•larger than average, high quality traditional canvas bell tent with zipped-in groundsheet (ZIG) so that you can choose to let the breeze in on hot days yet keep the insects out
•dark skies, for star gazing up through the trees once the last traces of sunset have gone (have we mentioned the fabulous sunsets you get this far west?)
•anything else we can think of to make your stay perfect (let us know your suggestions on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), there might be a prize in it!)
Right on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, close to fantastic climbing at Castlemartin Range East & West, the excellent surfing at Freshwater West & Broadhaven South, and within striking distance of many of Pembrokeshire's best (and unspoilt, especially if you're used to the comparative hordes in Devon & Cornwall) beaches, countryside, castles, river walks, Neolithic remains, geological formations, charming pubs, delicious cafes & restaurants & even the UK's best Street Food (according to the BBC in 2014), film locations and other places of interest.
Dog friendly - we have a very sociable hound ourselves.
Nature fans may be lucky enough to spot badgers & our visiting barn owl at the farm. Or otters, seals, bats, puffins, etc. elsewhere in Pembrokeshire.
There are also two shared lawns for playing garden games, having afternoon tea or general chilling, including one with our driftwood swing and ground level trampoline that is very popular with kids of all ages!
For special events, we can provide extras, like a large gas barbecue or the use of a barn or our indoor patio (complete with giant paddling pool!) for a supplement. Or arrange your own mini festival in the field.
Private camping is also available, if you need to squeeze extra friends or family in.
Please note that all other buildings (the farmhouse, barns, the polytunnel, the bunkhouse, other bell tents and their kitchen/bathroom blocks) are out of bounds except by prior arrangement.
Interaction with guests
Jane lives at the farm full time and she will be on hand most days to answer any questions or help out. Hannah is usually only around at weekends, but is on the other end of email, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) & (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) for anything you need before or after your stay.
You'll probably get a few visits each day from Minnie, our dog, who is very friendly and likes to see if she can persuade you to give her a bit (or better still: a lot!) of fuss.
Other things to note
Bedding (including plenty of pillows and cosy duvets for eight, plus extra blankets) are provided, but not towels, so don’t forget to throw a few in.
You will be allocated a specific tent a few days before arrival, so that you get the perfect tent for your group and for the weather conditions (wind direction being key!). Don’t worry that you’re missing out: they are all very, very similar, with just slight differences in some of the furnishings (for example, different cushions or rugs) and slightly different orientations.
We have plenty of parking space for cars, vans and even campervans in the farmyard and the field. The copse is around 80 meters away from the main parking area, with temporary parking for loading & unloading a little closer. We'll loan you our garden cart if you want, though as each bell tent is fully equipped you won't need to bring quite as much kit as you would usually need.
Please note that we are in a remote rural location near to an Army Tank Training Range:
•there is no mobile signal at all for most providers, though the copse happens to be the most likely spot to get signal;
•we'll endeavour to provide free wireless internet access near the house (sorry, it doesn't reach as far as the bell tents), but can't guarantee it at all times;
•depending on Army manoeuvres, there may be noise. This is usually only Monday to Friday during the day, with occasional firing up to 10 pm. It's nowhere near as noisy as you'd think, and also quite interesting to watch with the flares & tracer fire!;
•facilities (such as pubs, restaurants, cafes, shops & petrol stations) are all a drive away. There is a bus service, but you are highly recommended to drive as it is infrequent and changes route depending on firing.
•the tents are off-grid apart from water and, despite some expectations, don't have TV or mains electricity. We'll happily charge your phones and cameras in the house but you might not want to bother packing the hair straighteners (we think the sea-tousled look is more 'you' anyway ;) )
•we're an intimate, family-friendly site. We've hosted some amazing groups who have thoroughly enjoyed relaxing around the campfire after an energetic day. But if you're after bright lights and busy pubs, we'd recommend you consider staying closer to Tenby.
Please note that the AirBnB diary takes a periodic feed from our main booking diary. It usually connects every few hours but in 2015, we had a few issues with much longer delays and subsequent double-bookings. We will always do our very best to fulfil any booking but if your booking is short notice or you have very specific dates, please do check availability direct with us at Warren Farm, Wales.
We're a small, intimate, family-run site and usually host a mix of families, friends and single sex groups.
1)Please be considerate of other guests, respecting their private space and keeping noise to reasonable levels, especially in the early mornings or late at night.
2)Let us know if there's anything you need, there's anything you've run out of, or if anything is broken - we'll do our best to get things sorted ASAP.
3)You're very welcome to use the trampoline & swing, at your own risk. No shoes on the trampoline please, as we regularly have tiny tots crawling on it.
4)Pets are welcome, as long as they're friendly with other visitors, us and our cats & dogs. You'll be responsible for all their care, control and cleanup of "oopsies".
5)Please do your best to keep mud outside the tents and shower – our local blend is *really* tough to clean up and stains at the drop of a hat!
6)Our toilet & waste water systems can only cope with biodegradable materials. Please:
a.wrap nappies & other items well before disposing in black bins,
b.food waste must be thrown away/composted, not washed down sinks.
Cancel up to 7 days before your trip and get a 50% refund plus service fees back.
