Grass Camping pitch

UK Wales South Wales Carmarthenshire St Clears Big Barn Camping

  • Sleeps 6 (max 4 adults, 4 children)
This is a large camping pitch, which can accommodate up to 6 people. Campfires are permitted and a picnic bench is adjacent to each pitch.

The Owner Says

Our camping paddock sits nestled in the hills of the Carmarthenshire countryside, the camping paddock is 4 acres so with only 10 Camping pitches this means lots of space for everyone. Each pitch is individually cut so you have your own designated area with plenty of space between any neighbours. You have a picnic bench and fire pit, so no hire charge for these items, unlike some campsites.

We welcome campervans but please note we not accept touring caravans.

We have a facilities block which includes 3 showers, 3 washbasins, 2 washing-up sinks, composting toilet and recycling facilities. We also have 2 eco-friendly composting toilets located within the camping field.

Recycling is a fundamental role for all of us and is a key part of everyones stay on the campsite and a major goal for the Greener Camping Club. Each booking will be given a recycling bucket to sort and deposit waste in the correct recycling bins located at the Big Barn. So please do take pride and recycle correctly during your stay.

Thank you.

Laugharne is synonymous with Wales’ most famous writer, Dylan Thomas – visit his iconic writing shed at the Dylan Thomas Boathouse Museum (01994 427420). The town’s magnificent medieval castle also served as a place of inspiration for Thomas who composed in its garden summerhouse. Today, you can enjoy its atmospheric ruins and ornate Victorian gardens. Pendine Sands is one of Wales’ best beaches, boasting a vast expanse of soft sand and stunning views of Carmarthen Bay. The nearby Pendine Museum of Speed (01994 453488) commemorates the beach’s role as the setting for various land-speed record attempts, most notably with ‘Babs’ the vehicle used by Parry Thomas in his fatal 1927 attempt.
