Having booked this campsite at short notice for the bank holiday weekend and being told we couldn't have an electric hook up for less than three nights, we accepted a three night booking using the logic that although we probably couldn't stay three nights we might stay until late on the last day and make the most of the weekend.
Other reviewers on other review sites mention the state of the site etc and we could go on about it too (it's far from decent) but what you need to know is that the owner allows low life to stay on the site. We were woken at about 2am by a loud and what escalated in to a violent row from our next door neighbours. The volume and language was beyond anything we have experienced before and my wife was extremely scared of what might happen next as punches were being thrown and stuff hurled about violently. One drunk member of the family then got in his car, revved it up and drove off the site at at speed, only to return later and it all kicked off again. Someone on the site did go and raise the owner (the police should have been called in our opinion) and then we heard him come and talk to the family. He was positively jovial with them and we could hear him ticking them off lightly and then even laughing with them. As soon as he left it started again and it went on with foul language, hysterical screaming, shouting and car doors being slammed until gone 4am. There was a small child in their party, what a disgrace that a child had to witness that, not to mention all the children in the vicinity that must have been woken up by it and frightened.
The next morning the owner had made himself scarce and although the disturbance was the talk of the campsite, no-one was authorised to talk to us and give us our money back. We hung around until 2pm before finally deciding that as our holiday was ruined we would leave, although in an effort to intimidate us the car parked next door had been moved so we couldn't open the drivers door of our motorhome. No-one did anything about ejecting the trouble makers and the next day they were swanning about arrogantly as if nothing had happened. I have since discovered they were allowed to stay for more nights. Other staff said they were appalled by what had happened and that we should get a refund but after waiting 4 days for a call the owner has now refused to refund our other two nights.
There are lots of lovely sites in Pembrokeshire and it was our great misfortune to have ended up at this one. There is a lovely site in Manorbier that we spent the rest of our holiday at and the owners know how to treat people. The owners of Buttyland genuinely don't care about anyone or their safety. Avoid at all costs.

This is a great Park for the convenience to the beach.
loads of open space for the kids to play.
It also offers a rally field for VW meets and club meets of all types.
A friendly comfortable park that I am sure has improved no end since we stayed since there are new owners.

Stayed at this site last year for 2 weekends and my Dad stayed for a mid week break in our caravan.
The site had recently changed hand and the new proprieters were absolutley delightful. Very helpul. The name has changed but I can't remember what it is now called.
It is a very quiet site a few seasonal caravans on site but we did go at the beginning of the season.
Hot showers which were nice and a toilet block electric hook up and water very close by.
Ideal base for travelling around although to get to the beach you would need a car if you have kids. Plenty of lovely walks around.
They have a mobile van that sells hot food although it wasn't open at the time we went.
There is a field to excersise the dog which was nice.
Not alot on the site for the kids to do when it was raining but I am sure they will improve greatly on it this year.
They offered us onsite storage but it was very limited.
Very close to Manabier Castle which was very interesting and Dogs are welcome. Manobier beach is also dog friendly.
A lovely garden centre is just across the road that serves Sunday Lunch.
We will definatley take another look this year.
