A conservation project and our home

Our campsite is only open for a short season to protect the environment and to go "easy" on the ground. As a result, you will share your holiday with many creatures and flora and fauna of Pembrokeshire. We actively encourage wildlife by providing habitats both natural and artificial (bat boxes and nesting boxes).

Some of our ground is grazed by sheep. Some areas including the valley meadow and areas of the woods/brush, are left completely natural with many varieties of wild flowers and all the insects, butterflies, dragonflies etc. that you would expect and some that are rarer too.

We have been particularly successful with bats, newts, and small wild birds, with returning nesting pairs of ravens, swallows, sparrow hawks, perregrines and many other varieties. All of which you will probably see during your stay.

2014 will see us planting more trees, comprising a variety of natives including Oak, Ash, Alder, Hawthorn and many other lesser species.

We encourage recycling and composting onsite. Hot water is provided by a solar hot water heating system and the balance on not so sunny days is backed up by renewable electricity. Likewise, our toilets and drains empty in to our own sewage treatment system , so reducing our impact on the local environment. This is another reason why we limit the total number of visitors to 35 or so and keep the season short.

For 2014 season we will be able to recycle, most plastics, plastic bottles, metal/tins/cans, glass, tetra packs, raw vegetable waste and cooked waste.

We already recycle where possible broken camping equipment and other sundry items.

Really apart from nappies and a very few other items we recycle 95% of normal rubbish

So enjoy your holiday in the mind set that at least your accommodation and surroundings are having a minimal impact on the environment.
