Warm & cosy bunkhouse on the Coast Path between Freshwater West & Broadhaven South. Perfect for climbing, surfing, walking & exploring the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
With 12 super-comfy beds & wetroom, you'll be set for anything!
Main view of the bunkhouse. Each bed has an orthapedic mattress, lots of pillows & its own bedside light - for a great night's sleep
Warm & cosy bunkhouse for up to 12 active adults in gorgeous rural location in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. 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 hordes in Devon & Cornwall) beaches, countryside, castles, river walks, Neolithic remains, geological formations, charming pubs, film locations and other places of interest.
The bunkhouse is in a single story stone built former Dairy, with purpose-built robust and generously-sized bunkbeds for up to 12 active adults. All mattresses are orthopedic & hypo-allergenic, so you'll get a good night's sleep even after the most energetic day. Complete with wet room and Ladies & Gents toilets.
Being single storey with no internal steps & only a door hearth to negotiate at the entrance, we're accessible to those with limited mobility, though not specifically designed for it. Ask for more info.
The bunkhouse is well supplied with all you need to make a hot cuppa of tea & coffee and opens on to a small enclosed courtyard with a picnic bench. Please note that the bunkhouse does not have cooking facilities but we can provide extras, like barbeques, firepit, patio heater and even the use of a barn or our indoor patio (complete with giant paddling pool!) for a supplement.
Private camping is also available, if you need to squeeze extra friends or family in. We usually only accept one group at a time, so you can let your hair down & have the run of the Bunkhouse and the outside grounds.
(Please note that all other buildings are out of bounds except by prior arrangement.)
Dog friendly - we have two very sociable hounds ourselves.
We run regular Volunteer Weekends (stay for free!) and other events at the farm, find us with the keywords WarrenFarm InWarren to see what's coming up.
History fans may enjoy the unusual shape of the toilet cubicles, which are curved where they back on to an original medieval bread oven, and spotting the year the Dairy was extended to its current size carved into a wooden beam (over 150 years ago). The bunkhouse also has good views of the medieval St Mary's Church to the sea beyond. You may even be able to see Lundy Island on a clear day.
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.
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;
- we'll endeavour to provide wireless internet access, 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.
We have plenty of parking space for cars, vans and even campervans.
Interaction with Guests
The bunkhouse is self-contained, so you can be completely private.
Jane, and especially our dogs Minnie and Molly, will give you a warm welcome when you arrive, and will be on hand throughout your stay to answer any questions you have, help advise on how to make the most of your stay, or resolve any issues. Depending on timing, Chris & Hannah are also likely to be around at times. Probably up to their elbows in paint :)
The location of the Farm is pretty special: we're nestled just under the crest of a hill with views over unspoilt countryside to the sea to the west, to the south, and even to the south east.
If you're interested in extreme sports, we're ideally located for:
- surfing, kite surfing, kayaking and coasteering: 2 miles west to Freshwater West, 5 miles south east to Broadhaven South, and around 8 miles east to Manorbier
- walking the Pembrokeshire Coast Path - it's on our doorstep
- climbing: the Green Bridge of Wales is just 1 mile directly south of us (we're the closest you can stay to it) on Castlemartin Range West
- scuba diving: go diving straight from the beach at Stackpole Quay, just 6 miles away.
For more leisurely pursuits, Pembrokeshire has lots of seaside & riverside pubs, restaurants and tea rooms, picturesque villages, and castles and forts in almost every other town.
The Farm is in a very rural area, which makes for a lovely peaceful stay. There are buses (search for the Coastal Cruiser) but the service only runs a few times a day and only visits the main spots. For the best experience, we strongly recommend that you have your own mode of transport: bikes for the very energetic (it's quite hilly!) or better still, a car. Without it, you'll miss some of the best bits of Pembrokeshire.
1) Enjoy Pembrokeshire
2) No muddy boots in the bunkhouse bedroom or shower, please
3) It's a bunkhouse, so you'll need to bring sleeping bags or other bedding as well as your own towels. Pillows are provided
4) We're pretty flexible on cancellations, but as we only really have weekends to clean & prepare the bunkhouse we'd appreciate knowing about cancellations/changes at least the Saturday before your arrival
5) The bunkhouse will usually be ready for you to settle into as soon as you arrive, but in order to make sure we're ready for the next party you will be expected to help out by stripping beds & emptying bins before you go
6) Watch your head! The door into the Dairy is traditional - in other words, very low but wide. Please be careful
7) Our two dogs act as 'alert dogs' (rather than guard dogs) - they will bark loudly & long when you arrive, but they are very friendly and you'll get bored of fussing them way before they will
8) Let us know if there's anything you need, anything you've run out of, or if anything is broken - we'll do our best to get things sorted ASAP
9) Like the rest of the farm, the waste water system is a venerable age and needs to be treated a bit gently. Help us minimise future problems by being careful about things that go down the drains, especially the loos. You may also find that the on/off switch on the shower occasionally sticks; a gentle thump on the side will soon show it who's boss.
10) 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!"
11) We don't currently let the bunkhouse to more than one group at a time, so only your group will have access to the bedroom. There's a code lock on the door to the bunkhouse bedroom, so all your possesions can be secured even if we have other visitors camping & using the shower or toilets - something that happens only very, very rarely!
unbelievable little gem of a place. jane and team were so accommodating, the type of people that just get it, they've put themselves in your shoes and have delivered a great experience.
the location was exceptional and we'll be going again - so easy, really comfortable beds and great for a large team - well done jane and company!
Lovely host, very informative about local area and walks. Kitchen was beyond what we expected. Whole experience was very good for money. Nice, quiet neighbourhood, which was good if you wanted to have late nights. The bunkhouse was surrounded by beautiful countryside - plenty of outdoors activities to do. We had 8 people in the bunkhouse for a week, think 10 would have been doable, but a week of 12 people in there may have been a bit tight! Overall, loved the kitchen and outside area, very pretty and well thought out. Brilliant stay and amazing hosts. Thank you!
