    Location: Well Park Caravan Site, New Hedges, Tenby, Wales. SA70 8TL

    Welcome to Tenby, also known as the 'Jewel in the Crown' of Pembrokeshire. The club has secured a private field at Well Park Caravan Site, for a June 2018 meet. A number of campsites were considered, with Well Park being the best option.Tenby is a busy holiday resort getting a campsite to meet our needs for such a short period of time was quite a challenge.

    The availability of this field will allow the club to be self-contained and social activities are being considered to ensure members get the best out of the occasion. June is a great time of year to visit Tenby, before the main holiday season when the town is very busy.

    We have added an additional day (Thursday 28th) for those members who plan to arrive on the Thursday rather than the Friday. Departure day would be Sunday 1st July for all.

    The normal fee for a camper without electric is £16 per vehicle with additional fees for the number of people (over 3), pets and awnings. The club has negotiated a price to include no restriction / additional fees for additional persons, pets and awnings. In addition we have the use of a private gated field on site solely for club use.

    Cost

    £33.50 per vehicle for the weekend - Friday and Saturday
    £49.50 per vehicle for Thursday, Friday and Saturday

    This includes up to 5 persons and booking / transaction fee. Dogs go free


    The site is well maintained and has good facilities including free use of showers. Members should note the following before booking; the allocated field has no electric hook-up facility and the showers and toilets are approximately 70yds from the field. A main road is adjacent to the site and one corner of the field will run alongside this. Please see the attached picture.

    Well Park has a small bar and the site is next to the main Tenby road in the village of New Hedges. Two public houses are a short walk away, together with a small mini-market which sells everything needed. Tenby is less than one mile away and a pleasant walk (downhill) via a shortcut through a wooded lane, (bicycles OK). If you don’t want to walk, there is a bus stop is just opposite the site. The nearest beach is Waterwynch (900yds ) as is the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park coastal footpath which will take you either into Tenby or the lovely village of Saundersfoot.

    Tenby is a seaside resort and harbour town in Pembrokeshire. It’s known for its 13th-century town walls, picturesque harbour, and beautiful sandy beaches. There is a great range of shops and restaurants. Siting just 2 miles offshore is the monastic island of Caldey which can be visited by boat. Nearby attractions include Pembroke Castle, the birthplace of Henry VII, and a range of amusement parks and entertainment venues.

    The Club is taking bookings for approximately 40 VANS ONLY working on a space of 21' wide per allocated plot so we recommend to book early to avoid dissapointment


    The caravan site have said that they would prefer the club to coordinate the bookings and these can be made via the below link and Cali Club Admin. In discussions with Admin as per usual club meets, the booking fee is non refundable.

    This thread will be updated as the date approaches with full directions, details of planned events and anything else thought relevant. Happy to answer any queries along the way. Tenby is a beautiful place, not too far off the M4 so come and enjoy.

    There is no dog ban on Waterwynch (900 yds from site) and you can also use the 2 miles South Beach Tenby (West of the South Beach Cafe includes Car Park)) and this is basically next to the town centre. Saundersfoot is connected to Coppet Hall Beach (200yds) where there is no ban. You can even take your dog on North Beach Tenby at low tide near an area behind the stone pier. Monkstone Beach (see map) also allows dogs. Lots of residents and visitors have dogs.

    Thanks @dayslikethis . Is the dogs allowed bit of the South Beach essentially the stretch by the golf course? It's quite hard to tell from the linked document unless you know the area.
    The site looks well placed for the coastal path so that's an alternative option.

    Yes that's correct - its a stretch of beach about 1-1.5 mile long where dogs are allowed. You can even take the dogs into the South Beach Cafe and park in the Beach Car park if driving. Some people drive west to the village of Penally and park there entering the beach further west. In terms of Tenby town there are quite a few dog friendly cafes. In terms of the coast path I would recommend that dogs are on a lead at all times ie sheep and cliffs.

    As car as I'm aware the only ban in the South of the County is on Tenby North Beach whilst there are restrictions on
    • Saundersfoot beach and promenade
    • Tenby Castle and South Beach
    • Amroth beach and Promenade
    However, there are so many other lovely beaches within a short distance and the coast path is simply fantastic. I can assure you that you will be spoilt for choice for areas to walk your dog's.

    Look forward to welcoming you to Tenby. If you are not familiar with Tenby then from 8pm Monday 30th October a documentary series starts on ITV called "The Harbour". Based around Tenby Harbour. It's been on ITV Wales once and the photography is excellent.

    Yes, unfortunately we have no hook up. It was quite a challenge to get a site, close to town to take us all for such a short period such is the nature of a busy holiday resort.
