The Best Campsites in Pembrokeshire

Pembrokeshire is home to one of the best beaches in the world, the nation’s only coastal national park and one of the greatest long-distance walking paths on the planet. It is an outdoor lover’s paradise, so it’s no surprise that Pembrokeshire campsites rank among the best in the UK too. Travel writers lavish near constant praise on this beautiful part of west Wales and, of course, it’s our opinion that the best way to visit it is on a camping or glamping holiday where the great outdoors is the star of the show.

With stunning beaches and glorious countryside, Pembrokeshire is true camping country and there’s a wealth of sites to choose from. Our pick of the best campsites in Pembrokeshire are shown on this page and range from basic campsites where you can pitch your own tent in a beautiful beachside location to ultra-luxurious glamping sites where you can expect fluffy towels and private hot tubs. There are fantastic family-friendly sites and places that are perfect for a pair on a romantic retreat too.

Camping Holidays in Pembrokeshire

The beauty of classic camping in Pembrokeshire is its simplicity. When you’re tucked up in your canvas cocoon there’s just a zip separating you from all the natural splendour that has won Pembrokeshire so many accolades. The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park dominates the coast and there are lots of amazing campsites right on the beach where you can enjoy a sea view and the taste of salty air. But in Pembrokeshire you’re never far from the sea and you can still make the most of the coast if you prefer to stay inland too: wildflower meadows, working farms and enchanting woodlands all play host to some of Pembrokeshire’s best camping sites.

Whether you are hiking on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and want somewhere to pitch up that’s not too far from the route or you're looking for somewhere that’s suitable for a two-week holiday with the family, the Cool Camping selection should have a site to suit you and let you explore everything Pembrokeshire has to offer.

Glamping in Pembrokeshire

If it’s luxury that matters most, you may want to pay more attention to the carefully-selected Pembrokeshire glamping sites that are featured in our collection. There’s a great range of glamping sites across the region, offering luxury camping for those who prefer a little more comfort in camp. Almost every conceivable type of glamping accommodation is available in west Wales from treehouses to tipis, and from modern geodesic domes to old-fashioned gypsy caravans. There are shepherd’s huts and gleaming Airstreams as well as bell tents, yurts, safari tents and more.

The level of luxury varies depending on the site you choose and the luxury tent, cabin or caravan you go for. Some places pop-up for the summer and simply save you the hassle of putting up a tent while others are more permanent fixtures with a little more sturdiness, sumptuous bedding and indulgent extras.

Family camping in Pembrokeshire

Glamping can be a great way to holiday with the whole family – offering a compromise between the great outdoors and the great indoors. If some of the family are classic campers with a taste for the simpler things in life while others like a few home comforts, what could be better than glamping? In addition, a lot of glamping accommodation offers a bit more space and a lot more charm than your average tent. Kids will love the pint-sized proportions of some of these tiny homes with their cabin-style beds, miniature equipment and clever fold-aways.

But whether you’re glamper or a camper you’ll find somewhere to suit you for family camping in Pembrokeshire. Most sites are family friendly and many even let you bring the dog. There are loads of great family-friendly days out in Pembrokeshire, too, from the free entertainment of a day on the beach to taking part in adventure activities such as coasteering, climbing and horse riding.

Romantic camping and glamping in Pembrokeshire

If you are looking to get away on a glamping holiday for two in Pembrokeshire, look out for places with secluded pitches and glamping accommodation that is set apart with plenty of space. You might also like to consider taking a mid-week break or a trip outside of the school holiday season, allowing you to start exploring Pembrokeshire at the quietest time. Camping and glamping sites tend to be quieter mid-week, so it’s a great time to visit if you are looking for a bit of time out and seclusion. Visiting outside of peak times can also give you the chance to explore the popular spots with less people around, making those awesome walks on the coast even more enjoyable.

Autumn and winter camping and glamping can be a really romantic experience as the cooler weather means you’ll be keen to cosy up around the campfire. It’s also when glamping comes in to its own: extending the camping season and offering snug getaways surrounded by nature. There’s not much more romantic, in our opinion anyway, than candlelight, campfires and cosy cabins.

Exploring the Pembrokeshire coast and countryside

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park accounts for much of this special region and beautiful beaches like Barafundle Bay are a big draw but there’s much more to this protected landscape than sea, sand and shingle. The national park stretches 240 square miles over most of Pembrokeshire and, in addition to the wide sandy beaches in Pembrokeshire, you’ll find rocky coves and impressive limestone cliffs. A great way to see some of the most stunning coastal areas is to join the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path which stretches 186 miles along the protected coastline. There are of course, plenty of other adrenaline-inducing ways to appreciate the coastline too – including climbing, coasteering and kayaking.

The national park is also home to the wildlife haven of the Daugleddau Estuary and the Preseli Mountains (or hills), a limestone outcrop among moors and grassland. This part of the national park offers great walks and even better views: on a clear day from its highest peaks (536 metres) you can see all the way to Ireland and Snowdon. The national park also has some fascinating market and harbour towns within its boundaries which are well worth a visit – including the UK’s smallest city, St David’s (population 1,600).

What to see and do when camping in Pembrokeshire

You won’t be short of things to do in Pembrokeshire: in fact there’s so much going on you may find it hard to know where to start. To give you a helping hand we’ve put together this handy Cool Camping list of ten things to do in Pembrokeshire.

1. Walk along the coast

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path runs 186 miles along the entire Pembrokeshire coastline from St Dogmaels in the north to Amroth in the south. You may not want to tackle the whole route whilst glamping in Pembrokeshire but why not take a picnic and tackle a short section to see some spectacular coastal scenery? It was Wales’ first national trail and falls almost entirely within the Pembrokeshire National Park giving walkers the chance to see rare wildflowers and wildlife as well as stunning views.

2. Spend the day on the beach

With more than 50 beaches along the Pembrokeshire coast, there’s bound to be one to suit you. If you like quiet beauty and don’t mind a walk, you might like to take the four-kilometre footpath to Barafundle Bay to find out why it’s been voted as one of the best beaches in the world countless times. If

3. Have a go at coasteering

This combination of climbing, swimming and cliff jumping was invented in Pembrokeshire so it’s a great place to give it a go. Open to all (over eight years old) coasteering is an adrenaline-fuelled way to explore the coastline and a great activitiy for families with older children and teenagers. There are plenty of qualified and experienced coasteering activity guides who can take you for a day out on the rocks.

4. Take to the water

Just as there are plenty of people to teach you the ropes of coasteering, there are plenty of opportunities to indulge in your favourite watersports or even try a new one. Whether you want to paddleboard, surf, kitesurf or kayak, you’ll find somewhere that will hire out the gear and teach you the ropes. Official tourist information provider, Visit Pembrokeshire has a handy searchable list of providers.

5. Head for the hills

While enjoying all that lovely coastal scenery, don’t forget about the inland beauty of the Preseli Mountains. You’ll find yourself far from the crowds if you take a hike or go for a run across heather moorland on one of the many well-marked walking trails. It’s worth making your way to Foel Eryr and some of the higher peaks for panoramic views and you may just spot some of the reminders of Bronze Age and Iron Age settlements along the way.

6. Visit the UK’s smallest city

It won’t take long to explore the city of St David’s as it is such a teeny, tiny little place. Named after the patron saint of Wales, it has a population smaller than many villages at just 1,600! It was awarded city status in 1995 thanks to the fact that it has its own cathedral built at the final resting place of St David. The 12th century cathedral has been attracting pilgrims since it was built.

7. Go kayaking (with a pair of binoculars)

The Daugleddau Estuary in the middle of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is at the confluence of four rivers. It’s known as a great spot for birdwatching and a lovely place for a paddle in a kayak – so why not combine the two? This quiet way to ply the waterways leaves the wildlife undisturbed so it’s a great way to get up close to some of the interesting birds and animals.

8. Cruise out to sea

There are more wildlife watching opportunities offered by taking a boat trip out to sea. All along the coast there are companies offering wildlife watching trips to see seals, dolphins and porpoises. Book in for a trip with one of them and you also get a closer look at the populations of seabirds who make their home on Pembrokeshire’s cliffs and, if you’re really lucky, you might just catch sight of a blue whale.

9. Visit a wild Welsh island

The islands of this stretch of wild Welsh coastline are a haven for wildlife and heaven for wildlife watchers. Head for Skomer Island, just  a mile off the Pembrokeshire coast, to see the resident population of puffins and seals or take a trip to Ramsey Island. Ramsey is an RSPB reserve which is recognised as one of the best places in the UK to see wildlife. It is home to shearwaters, guillemots and choughs – among others.

10. Explore seaside Tenby

The quaint seaside town of Tenby is one of Pembrokeshire’s best-known and best-loved towns and has been attracting holidaymakers for centuries. Its town walls surround cobbled streets that will have you reaching for the camera at every turn. It has a historic harbour and a choice of three sandy beaches with tea rooms, cafes, pubs and gift shops to browse within its historic heart.
