The Small Campsite with Great Sea Views
West Hook Farm Camping is run by Karre and Robert Thomas. The farm and campsite is situated on the Marloes Peninsula, which is within part of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
It is a small campsite with clean basic facilities, which consist of 8 communal toilets and wash hand basins, 3 showers that work on 50p coins (the shower lasts approximately 4 to 5 minutes), 3 washing up sinks and a chemical disposal point. There are several fridges and freezers available to all campers. We also have picnic benches available for hire.
Karre and Robert are big on recycling. There are separate bins for plastic bottles, newspapers and magazines, tins and cans and glass bottles and jars. There is also a compost heap for organic waste and peelings.
We are open from mid-March to the end of September. The site does not have electric hook up, but we are happy to re-charge any type of battery from car to phone. We are a Calor and Camping Gaz stockist.

The site has 30 pitches, which are set out over 4 acres of land. There is between 6 and 18 metres between pitches depending on position. Some pitches are on a gentle north facing slope.
You are very welcome to Turn Up Without Booking and just pay for the camping you require. If there is no available pitch we have an additional large field available that has plenty of space, but no dedicated pitches. The only disadvantage of this field is that it is further to walk to the facilities.
People wishing to stay for one week or more can Reserve a Pitch, a £30 deposit is required for this reservation, which must be received within 7 days of booking. No booking is confirmed until deposits have been received and all deposits are non refundable. The balance of payment has to be made on arrival, this is whether you decide to stay or not (I am not responsible for any bad weather)
Touring Caravans: It is essential for touring caravans to be booked in due to Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority restrictions. The minimum stay for a touring caravan is 4 days.
Searching For The Perfect Beach
"Pembrokeshire has the world's best beaches" - says Kevin Rushby, who set out with his daughter and a vintage VW campervan to find the ultimate stretch of shore.
"Now we were approaching our destination: West Hook Farm on the Marloes peninsula. This proved to be the best campsite we visited: basic but clean facilities, loads of space, and a glorious clifftop panorama. We jumped into wetsuits and ran 500m along the cliff path to reach Martin's Haven. This is a tiny stony cove best suited to snorkelling and rock-pool exploration. We swam out along the east side and were rewarded by a view of a big edible crab scuttling between the kelp. He evaded our hungry fingers".
