Pembrokeshire’s Neyland Yacht Haven is situated within the UK’s only coastal national park.
Positioned within the spectacular Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Neyland Yacht Haven is the only marina in west Wales to offer full-tidal access for resident and visiting boats.
Neyland benefits from a stunning location in the Westfield Pill area of the Milford Haven waterway. The tree-lined creek provides a well-protected sanctuary for boaters with a wide range of facilities ashore to suit all types of boaters.

BERTHING & STORAGE
The 420 berth marina is split across two basins with berths for boats from 6m to 20m LOA. The Lower Basin provides full-tide access berthing for residents and visitors whereas the Upper Basin, accessed over a Tidal Cill, offers a peaceful setting and more economical berthing option.
The Milford Waterway offers a well-protected playground for smaller boats to enjoy. The creeks, rivers and land masses ensure there is an abundance of quiet, calm waters to explore, whatever the wind direction.
The waterway has become an extremely popular place for trailer sailors and boats under 6m who are able to sail in relative safety. Neyland Yacht Haven has therefore created specific berths for small boats such as Merry Fishers, RIBs, Quicksilver boats, Orkneys, Fletchers and other similar day boats.
Boat owners can enjoy all the luxuries and comfort of marina berthing, and no stress of slipways and trailers.
The Haven Pods are two unique floating accommodation cabins located in the beautiful Upper Basin within the Yacht Haven.
Sleeping two adults and two children, the Haven Pods are made from ethically-sourced wood and are full of eco-friendly features that provide a unique holiday location, all-year round.
The self-catered units are finished with a kitchenette and a floating terrace that will make you feel you are walking on water.
The entrance into the Milford Haven is very straightforward but during periods of heavy weather, you are advised to give the ebb at St Anne’s Head a wide berth. Two main channels lead you eastwards into the waterway towards Neyland, passing Milford Haven town.
After passing the Weir Spit port hand post and north of the Pennar Gut, head north-easterly to Pembroke Reach and follow the channel, marked with port and starboard posts.
Leave Neyland Spit port hand buoy (Fl(2) R10s) to port and head for the Cleddau Bridge (aim between the 2FR vert and 2FG lights), until Westfield Pill. Approach the marina from south-east giving the westerly bank a wide berth. The final approach is marked by channel buoys and the Haven Team listen on Channel 37 and 80 to provide mooring and/or further instructions.
THINGS TO DO
For those days when sailing is not on the agenda, the pretty eight mile Brunel Cycle Trail starts at the Yacht Haven and runs through the national park before finishing at Haverfordwest. Other trails, all suitable for cyclists of all abilities, take you to the towns of Milford Haven and Waterston.
Bikes, children’s bikes, tow trailers and electric bikes are available daily from the marina office.
“I moved my Moody Eclipse 33 Rapport to Neyland in 2009. It is a three-and-a-half hour drive from home, but it is beautiful, safe and secure, with good local facilities and excellent staff.
There is a good café and the food at The Bar is outstanding. As Neyland is half-way up the Haven, it is nearly always possible to go out sailing, with sheltered waters upstream, open water downstream or right out into the Celtic Sea. The Haven is never crowded, and staying out of the way of the tankers and ferry to Ireland is not a problem.
Having no gate from the Lower Basin, there are no tidal access restrictions, which is a big advantage. The Dry Stack process runs seamlessly. I am amazed and delighted at how smoothly the marina operates without fuss and without delay.”
