Where do you imagine the greatest coastlines are? Perhaps the sun-dazzled, vineyard-riddled West Coast of America or the winding roads and colourful villas set into the hills of the Amalfi coast. You might be surprised to find out, Pembrokeshire was voted the second-best coastline in the World by National Geographic magazine – or if you’ve already been, entirely unsurprised. With 50 beaches, and over 186 miles of coastline, scenic barely covers it. If you’re thinking of going glamping in Pembrokeshire, we’ve a few places you just might want to take a peek at.
Glamping in Pembrokeshire gives you access to the wild and wonderful rolling hills and coastline unique to Wales. With 134 named mountains, 5 islands – home to puffins, seals and deer, glamping on the Pembrokeshire coast is an unforgettable dive into the wilderness. Go in search of adventures wild swimming in the River Teifi, or lounging around under a secret waterfall at Ffynnone. Hike the Preseli Mountains for a 360-degree panorama that stretches as far as Snowdonia, and the Wicklow Mountains in Ireland. Or just go glamping with a hot tub in mind, bring the swimsuit, and your best book to fall asleep reading.
Mya-Rose Craig, also known as Birdgirl, speaks to us about why we should all go birding, how to get started and what birds to look out for.
Who we are Not to brag, but we’ve got 12 years’ experience exploring the many nooks and crannies of this little island. We’re a small, independent travel company, with a focus on sustainability. We believe in travelling better, without sacrificing all that makes it great. We personally inspect every place, to ensure the owners have put their whole heart and soul into it.
Why choose glamping? Glamping was invented by single-celled organisms, when they grew weary of one side of the primordial soup as life began on Earth. Ok, maybe not. But it’s still the oldest form of travel, and there’s a reason it hasn’t died out. Nothing compares to the unfiltered exposure of the wild, the unbroken coastal winds stoking your firepit, or the twinkle of starscapes peeking in through the skylight. Glamping in Pembrokeshire, or anywhere else, is travel in its purest form.
Glamping in Pembrokeshire with us When some glamping companies who shall not be named, ‘inspect’ their properties, it can be as simple as looking at the photos, and calling it a day. Not so with us. For 12 years we’ve been shlepping ourselves up dirt roads, to the peaks of hills, and the bottom of valleys in search of spaces you won’t find anywhere else. When we say inspect, we mean we live it – the road travelled, the bed tousled, the hot tub reluctantly relaxed in.
Is Pembrokeshire worth visiting? Pembrokeshire is really only worth visiting if you’re interested in clear un-light-polluted skies with stunning starscapes, feasting on a smorgasbord of fresh seafood, coasteering, kayaking, paddleboarding, wild swimming, breathtaking hikes (sometimes all too literally), numerous national parks and even more AONB’s. Glamping in Pembrokeshire can be seclusion in the hills, fresh lobster on your deck, star-spotting through glass ceilings or secret waterfalls in walking distance. But, that aside – there’s not much to see.
