Naturist Holidays


Tything Barn - 2001, 2008, 2023

In 2001 we had our first summer holiday in our touring caravan here. On the way down we stopped at the Caravan Club site near Pembrey Country Park - see Cefn Sidan on the Carmarthenshire page - and then spent ten days at Tything Barn in July.

Tything Barn - N51.7116° W4.8452° - is a twenty-three acre site about seven miles roughly north-west of Tenby in Pembrokeshire. There are several camping fields and two large lagoons, with islands that can be explored. When we were there many of the camping pitches had electricity points. There are also two cottages attached to the main house and two wooden cabins set among trees. One of these has superb views out over the estuary.

One of the waterways is crossed by a floating bridge.

While at Tything Barn we visited Carew Castle - N51.6969° W4.8286° -  which is only a few miles from the site, and Tenby - which, after our home town, is probably our favourite town in the whole land.

In January 2008 we holidayed in one of the cottages at Tything Barn. At that time of year the weather was not conducive to outdoor naturist activity, but on one particularly sunny day we did see one chap in his skin washing his caravan.

This was more of a touristy holiday during which we visited Tenby, Bosherston Ponds, Manorbier and St David's.

In 2023 we included Tything Barn in our tour of Wales and spent a week there. The site was much the same, but there was a new service block containing a lavatory with wash basin, two showers, two other wash basins and two stainless steel sinks for washing up.

There also seemed to be more mown paths throughout the site, although as it rained for much of our week we didn't get the chance to explore them all. One thing that hadn't changed was the wonderful bubbling call of the curlews on the extensive foreshore. It's a sound that always brings a smile to our lips.

From here we visited Tenby; St Govan's Chapel, a tiny stone structure built into the cliff to the side of St Govan's Head; and Bosherston Ponds, a National Trust property just north of Broadhaven Beach.

The road to St Govan's Chapel passes through the Castlemartin military firing range and is sometimes closed to all civilian traffic. The times of closure can be seen on the website below.
