If you're looking for a good base in the Pembrokeshire area then you can do no wrong here. Chalet was extremely clean, with ample furnishings and space for our family of three, and even if we had an additional one or two with us!
The park was very empty in the period we were there, but I expect that if every chalet had people in them, for example over the school holidays, I imagine it could potentially become noisy and overrun with cars, with the car parking outside the front doors and many chalets within the same area. This was not a problem for us though as no neighbours were around whilst we were there so it was lovely and quiet with hardly any cars around.
Location is about 5 minutes walk to the local beach which is a nice place for a walk or a swim, join the coastal path or just do some moon-watching. We never visited the on-site bar but this looked closed/totally dead whilst we were there, with a sign on the door saying they couldn't serve food, but this didn't affect us anyway.
Another 'slight' gripe is that having no phone signal is fine (we were warned of this) but no access to any wi-fi instead was a wee bit of a pain, as when we're away somewhere new we do like to explore online what is in the area whilst we're actually there. So if there was any way to add this it would be very useful and gratefully utilised I'm sure!
We were there with our 18 month old who is literally in to everything, and although there were great touches like a baby travel cot (just took our own mattress but this saved us taking his cot), a travel baby gate and a booster seat, we found that the stairs open to the living room made our life quite difficult, with us constantly stopping him climbing the stairs with the gate only fitting the top (and the bottom too wide to affix the gate). So perhaps if we had any suggestions it would be to have a couple of baby gates available, or just people to take another themselves. Another impracticality (only in terms of having young children around, otherwise it wouldn't be a problem at all!) is that in the colder months when the fire needs to be put on (or perhaps even the storage heaters) a guard would be required. We 'made-shift' guarding by moving furniture around to stop him getting to various bits - like I say, only a consideration if you have young kids/toddlers with you.
In the area, Tenby is worth a visit, also Barafundle has some lovely long or short walks, and Pembroke castle was a nice attraction when the weather wasn't good, but I wouldn't expect too much by Pembroke town itself (we were disappointed). Carew karting was good fun too if you fancy a quick outdoor spin in a new kart!
I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this chalet for anyone looking to book accommodation in the area, with the owners being both polite and helpful during any correspondence required beforehand. In the summer holidays, with its vicinity of the beach this would be a great place to stay with the kids too!
