I suppose Pembroke is the nearest town with decent shops etc, that is atleast where we normally go for grub etc.

Well we are coming down on the friday, and camping at the vicarage fields in Bosherton. This is about 300m before the lilly ponds, through a tight gate on the right hand side. Im sure there will be alot of climbers in this field hope it helps Andy
