Comfortable shepherd's hut and yurt glamping a stone's throw from the beaches (and walking) of the Pembrokeshire coast

Rustic and back-to-basics, there was a simple charm to Becks Bay Camping when it first opened in 2006. It was a natural next step for friendly owner, Tom, though, to branch out in the prevailing years and add a cluster of secluded glamping options too. Now the enviable meadow, set just back from the Pembrokeshire cliffs, is home to furnished bell tents, a new, spacious yurt and, in a separate and private area, a luxury shepherd's hut for couples. It may not sound as back-to-basics as it once was but it retains that homespun charm and, if you don't fancy camping, it's the perfect way to enjoy that same, oh so special, seaside location.

The real star of the show is the Frankshore Shepherd’s Hut, an abode that, despite its traditional roots, really is a far cry from camping of old. Complete with electricity, a proper bed and en suite bathroom, it’s almost a self-catered cottage in miniature, housed within the quaint, corrugated cladding of a shepherd’s cabin. There are gas hobs for cooking, a heater for your towels and, of course, a wood-burning stove, so you can shelter yourself away if the weather turns and listen to the rain tap tap tapping on the roof top. Tastefully decorated and furnished, it’s a wonderfully cosy retreat.

It’s the priceless location of it all that's the real draw though. Even as your drive here, passing through the colourful old harbour town of Tenby, the scenery of the Pembrokeshire coast stands out. Tucked beyond the roads and across a meadow, Becks Bay Glamping can feel rather cut-off and secluded, yet wander back across the fields and glampers can quickly connect up to the famous Pembrokeshire Coast Path, leading in well worn twists and turns between the coves and beaches that mark this landscape out. It’s not long before you’re stumbling across Tenby’s ancient stone castle, Tudor merchant’s house and pretty harbour beach. A lick of ice-cream is a deserved reward.

While there’s space for a toddler and cots are available by request, the hut is best suited as a couple’s retreat for those who enjoy some extra comforts. The bell tents, meanwhile, can sleep four and the yurt a family of five and the whole site is small and spread out so you always have ample space. Secluded and serene, while remaining accessible, it pulls of the great feat of offering one of the best locations in popular Pembrokeshire while still allowing you to escape the summer crowds. Bliss.

Details

Facilities

The shepherd's hut has a double bed, wood-burning stove, gas hobs, table, chairs and fitted double bed (bedding included). It's fully en suite – hot shower and eco-loo – and connected to mains electricity. The yurt has its own private toilet and hot shower adjacent to the yurt itself, while the four bell tents share the use of two hot showers and two flushing loos. The yurt and bell tents all come fully furnished and also each come with a firepit and BBQ, outdoor seating and access to a shared kitchen with a gas stove and cooking equipment. There are two washing-up areas shared with the wider campsite.

Suitable For

The shepherds hut is best for couples. Dogs are also permitted in the hut. The glamping accommodation sits within a small campsite that's also home to pitch-your-own tent camping.

Nearby

The hut, yurt and bell tents have direct access to the Pembrokeshire Coast path – simply stroll across the meadow and cross the road to where it passes on the far side. From here you can easily connect to some of the best beaches on the Manorbier peninsular, with secluded sandy beaches both east and west of the main surf beach. Precipe and Swan Lake Bay are particular local favourites. Nearby Tenby; is an excellent old walled town to visit, with a harbour and expansive beaches at low tide. There are plenty of treats on the waterfront, too, with fish and chippies, ice-cream and more to be had.

Food & Drink

Stroll across the meadow to Bubbleton Farm Shop & Café (07929 334826) on site and a further 15 minutes to Waves Italian restaurant (01834 870085) or the Lydstep Tavern (01834 871521) just beyond. The bright blue painted Cross Inn (01834 844665) in Penally is also a top choice – home to a fantastic, traditional, seaside pub atmosphere – while The Plantagenet (01834 842350) in Tenby is a high-end option set in a romantic 10th century building – the oldest in town.

Open

Early April–end of October. Shepherds hut open all year.

The Owner Says

This must be the most romantic place to stay in Pembrokeshire! Set in an idyllic, secluded area in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park within walking distance of two beaches, this gorgeous Shepherds Hut is a unique glamping escape.

Furnished in a delightful antique Welsh style, it is a beautifully finished, hand crafted Shepherd's Hut by the sea, with a bathroom and kitchen, and a wood burning stove. Open the stable door whilst cooking your breakfast and then enjoy the blissfully peaceful rolling landscape while you dine.

Our farm is ideally located just 2 miles from Tenby and 3 miles from Manorbier. It is connected to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, which is perfect for walking to nearby beaches: Lydstep is a 15 minute walk to the West and Penally 20 minutes to the East. Trefloyne and Tenby golf clubs are also within walking distance.

Quiet and well equipped.

We’ve just had a lovely week at Beck’s Bay. The bell tents are fab. Everything you need, warm, dry and spacious. Nice hot showers. Space to cook undercover if it rains - which it did!! A really well thought out campsite. Brilliant to be able to have campfires in the cooler evenings. We loved it and would definitely come again.

Fantastic coastal campsite

We loved staying at Becks Bay. We chose one of their glamping bell tents which meant we could easily get there by train. It was set up with everything we needed and my daughter loved the novelty of having a bed inside the tent. The location is amazing, just off the coastal path with bags of room to run around and play frisbee in. The solar powered facilities were lovely. Best of all was the farm shop and cafe which did amazing breakfasts. We would definitely stay here again- I’m plotting to go back with our own tent.

Response from Becks Bay Glamping

Amazing - we'd love to see you again! Took a learning that we must add a sign on the coastpath that welcomes arrivees rather than simply stating Private (we do like to keep it hidden mind!) :) Love Eco travellers!

A luxurious way of getting back to nature.

We stayed in the Barafundle bell tent... all the joys of the great outdoors, but with added luxury- our own hot shower and toilet, comfy bed and although no electricity solar USB charge sockets to keep the essentials going. Everything is clean with a real emphasis on being green. Great location and the bubbleton farm shop and cafe was an absolute gem for groceries, drinks as well as breakfasts, brunch, lunch, afternoon cake and steaks for the bbq. Host Tom was helpful and we felt very welcomed. Looking forward to coming back in the future.

The most peaceful beautiful place

We had such a lovely time for my partners birthday here, location was amazing so quiet and peaceful yet still close to amenities. The hut was super clean and had everything we needed from a cosy large bed to a hot shower (which was amazing) and Tom the host was such a lovely person very friendly and welcoming. We cant wait to book here again next year. - Sam

Just back from three nights in the shepherd's hut, and we loved it

The shepherd's hut is a great place to relax. Surrounded by fields life slows down. Sleep, eat, walk, enjoy, and forgot about the time of day. The weather wasn't kind to us but it didn't matter. We got wet, but once back in the hut we just lit the log burner and instantly we were warm, dry and relaxed. The farm shop is full of fantastic produce, no need to leave the farm for supplies. Tom was friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

A relaxed & cosy glamping week

We spent 4 nights in a spacious & comfortable bell tent on the beautiful coast. 3 teenagers enjoyed huge skies, walks to sandy beaches, fishing, coasteering, delicious breakfast at the camp farm cafe. Very well equipped, great hosting from Tom and amazing hot showers! Highly recommended.

wonderful camp site

We spent 2 nights in one of the bell tents glamping on our first family camping holiday in Wales and this site we perfect. The tent and facilities were fab and Tom was the perfect host. We visited the farm shop for breakfast on our way to our next site and that was great too. My only comment would be to have a selection of gluten free foods in the shop/cafe.

wonderful relaxing site with comfortable Bell Tents

We stayed for a week the last week of September 2018 for our honeymoon. We had a Bell tent with all the facilities and comfortable large bed. We took our dog as he loves camping and had an amazing time. The owners made sure we had everything we needed .. fresh eggs, bread, milk butter and jam for a breakfast starter. The site is located so close to all amenities with coastal walks within metres of the camp. Great location. Can't wait to book again next year.
