Warm & cosy bunkhouse for up to 12 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 (no measly kids bunkbeds to squeeze into). All mattresses are orthopaedic & 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 very low doorstep 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 and it is our only dog-free zone. If you need to feed a group or plan to bring a dog, you may wish to consider booking one or more of our beautiful bell tents, which each sleep up to eight. They come complete with campfire and outside kitchen, and are dog friendly. The bell tents are also much more suitable for young families, as there is limited suitable floor space for cots in the bunkhouse and toddlers often find the original slate floors a little unforgiving when they tumble!

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 across our site but only limited parking in the farmyard.

The Pembrokeshire region

If you're more into food & drink, you'll be pleased to find out that we have our fair share of fantastic restaurants (including Michellin-rated chefs and BBC Food & Farming Award winners), artisan food producers, local craft breweries and even a vineyard. Even our humble spuds have been deemed worthy of their own denomination - you can't beat a proper, soil-grown, Pembrokeshire new potato for flavour.

Artists have long flocked to the region for its amazing light - look out for Turner's views of Carew Castle. It remains highly popular with artists & photographers across the spectrum. Don't forget to bring your camera to capture your own shots to remember.

We think of Pembrokeshire as Cornwall's equally (dare we say 'even more'?) beautiful but much more unspoilt cousin. Easier to get to than you might think, & not yet discovered by the crowds - why not give us a try before the rest of the world realises what they're missing? We're sure you'll soon be convinced!


The farm is right down on the far south west tip of Pembrokeshire, which makes it the ideal place for:

- great surfing beaches at Freshwater West (surf school available) & Broadhaven South

- amazing climbing at Castlemartin Range East & West

- one of the 3 best long distance walks in the world: the Pembrokeshire Coast Path

- super swimming beaches at Barafundle (often voted the best beach in the UK) and Freshwater East (not to mention one or two 'secret' beaches - you'll have to sweet-talk us to share their location)

- nipping to Stackpole Quay, for scuba diving from the shore (no boat needed!) and jumping off the Quay at high tide into our crystal clear waters

- sightseeing at St Govan's Chapel, Pembroke Castle (with the biggest keep in the country & birthplace of Henry VII), the Green Bridge of Wales (head down the lane beside our field & stop before you fall off the cliff edge), Stack Rocks, Bosherston Lilyponds and many other sights

- visiting local galleries at the Golden Plover and Bosherston

- looking for Lundy, as seen from your doorstep on clear days

As we're all the way out on the peninsular, we're surrounded by sea - it's 1 mile south to the coast at the Green Bridge, a couple of miles west to Fresh West, and a handful of miles east to Barafundle - which makes for great light for the artists & photographers amongst us as well as making it impossible to go too far before stumbling over another bit of gorgeous coast.

"Friendly relaxed place to stay close to several beautiful beaches"

I stayed here for a weekend and me and my fiance and young toddler had a lovely time. The bunkhouse is nicely decorated and cosy and the welcome is warm and friendly. There are a couple of great beaches within walking distance and if you have a car there are several more within a five to ten minute drive. Will stay again to explore the other beaches we didn't get round to the first time.

Thanks for the review; looking forward to seeing you all again next year. And, if you're wanting to explore *all the beaches, for many more years to come! Can't wait to share some of the 'secret' beaches with you when M is a little older & you can explore off the beaten track a bit more.

"Great location & comfortable accommodation"

Really relaxed & hospitable atmosphere, accommodation clean and comfortable and great value. Excellent base for beaches & coastal path. You need a car to really enjoy the area.

Thanks for the review, and for the good advice for future visitors. Getting around by bus can be done, but it's true that you'll see more if you have a car & can come & go as you please. Bike is a good second best, providing you're feeling super-fit - there's lots of hills round here!

"Friendly accessible comfortable bunkhouse in beautiful location."

This is a friendly and comfortable place to stay in a beautiful location. Hannah and Jayne are wonderful hosts and the grounds of Warren Farm are authentic and fascinating! The beds have orthapaedic mattresses which are very comfortable. This is not the first time we've stayed and we've always had a great nights sleep. The shower room is spacious and clean as are the loos. There are fantastic beaches nearby - oh and there's tea and coffee on tap! Hannah also makes amazing cakes :-) I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay here.

Thanks for the review. We're looking forward to hosting you again many times in the future, complete with comfy beds & lashings more cake :)

"Marvellous location, friendly owners, exceptional prices; GO HERE!"

WOW! What a pleasant surprise staying at Warren Farm was! Such a lovely and well-kitted-out place to stay with wonderfully friendly owners. Stayed here with friends around Easter to enjoy some early surfing, we were unable to fill all of the beds but the price per person was still comparable to the price of camping! Enjoyed every moment of our visit and will certainly be returning as soon as I get a chance, Many thanks for such an enjoyable stay, Tom

Thanks for the review Tom, and we look forward to seeing you again - just give us a shout if you're ever in need of a warm bunk after a good surf.
