Yurts and quirks in a Pembrokeshire meadow, where there's a couple of aeroplanes, a UFO and a giant PacMan-themed glamping pod to discover

Apple Camping is a glamping site with a difference. The three Mongolian-style yurts – two for families, one just for couples – have recently been drawing customers to this four-acre meadow in rural Pembrokeshire but owner Toby's newest additions have caused more of a stir. After all, it's not everyday local residents get to see a 20m-long Jet Star aeroplane being driven down their country lanes. And as for the space craft... who knows how that arrived?

First opened in 2015 and attracting early glampers for its pleasing location near the old harbour towns of Tenby and Saundersfoot, Apple Camping is a well equipped glamping site with modern shower, laundry and washing facilities and covered BBQ areas and kitchens outside each yurt. In one corner, the Jet Star noses from the trees, a grey fuselage with its wings missing, like a crash-landed aircraft from the opening scene of Lost or the pages of Lord of the Flies. This is no accident, though. Inside the ex-first class aircraft still has the original bar, ambient lighting and a exquisitely converted captain's cabin with a double bed and another single bed behind the cockpit, while, up front, you can play pilot using the Xbox provided, which comes readied with flight-simulator games. In 2019, meanwhile, a second airliner – and Etihad Airways Airbus – 'crash landed' into the scene too, similarly equipped with original features (like a trolly dolly) as well as added facilities like a kitchen.

The yurts, of course, still remain. They have everything needed for those looking for a more restrained glamping style – comfortable and cosy without any over the top quirkiness – while, for those who really want something different, Toby has also added a giant PacMan themed geodesic dome (complete with a PacMan console inside) and has built an innovative space craft. The saucer-shaped UFO is, needless to say, suitably out of this world in the experience it offers. There's a double bed and two singles, cooking facilities and comfortable seating, but also a monitor for playing classic 80s games like Space Invaders and Defender. The main entrance hatch, meanwhile, works by remote control, while eight different windows provide all-round views of the surroundings.

Once you've landed and have you're feet back on solid ground, you can slip out into the surrounding countryside or down to the coast. It's a ten minute drive to the nearest beach and, located just a few hundred metres from the nearest A-road, the campsite is conveniently placed for really exploring the Pembrokeshire area. Kayak in the Daugleddau estuary, catch crabs of Tenby harbour wall or kick back on Saundersfoot's blue flag beach.

For families, Manor House Wildlife Park (01646 651201) offers a chance to explore the globe – head down to the African Village where you can walk with lemurs or trek through the wallaby enclosure in the Australian bush. Back in Britain, the nearby harbour town of Tenby is a cute little spot, with ferries running out to Caldy Island, or try the harbour in Saundersfoot where there is also a sandy, blue flag beach. Freshwater West, meanwhile, was the filing location for Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows and Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood, while Barafundle Bay was recently voted the best beach in Wales.

Food & Drink

The family-friendly, Parsonage Farm Inn (01834 871436) in the village of St Florence (2¼ miles) is an excellent local pub, while the Sun (01834 871322), also in St Florence, is a traditional picture-postcard pub full of local memorabilia.

Response from Apple Camping

Thank you for sleeping and drinking with Arabian nights airlines, hope the evening wasn't too turbulent  The plane is now ready for more departures
many thanks Toby

First class stay on the jet star!!!

Excellent experience on the Jet star, my two boys felt like real pilots, the original detail in the aircraft is amazing and they loved sitting in the cockpit pretending to fly. The aircraft was surprisingly spacious for a family of four and the outside private kitchen area was well equipped with kettle, toaster, microwave and gas cooking hobs. Wolf was extremely accommodating providing us with a fire pit so we could toast marshmallows under the stars in an ideal peaceful location with lots of grassed area for the children to play. Would highly recommend thanks

Highly recommend

Excellent communication - this is my 2nd time staying at the site - 1st time was in the space ship and this time the Pacman dome - I would highly recommend - wolf who runs the site is so lovely and explains how everything works - he will allow you to view the other experiences on camp if they are not occupied. Will defiantly go back and stay in the aero plane next time- the pacman dome was so comfy - I had the best nights sleep - really warm and honestly such a nice site they have got here :)

Great welcome and very warm team, incredible imagination, plenty of room and none of the accommodation is too close to the others. I would completely recommend Apple to anyone looking for a campsite for a different experience, great facilities, the site and accommodation is really clean, and somewhere you will never forget. Planes, UFO, original Space Invaders ..... The location - few miles from Tenby - is perfect, reasonably easily found and is a very relaxing, superb place to stay. Definitely want to go back.


Let’s face it, what could be better than staying in a UFO? It was a case of ‘beam me up Scottie’ and we were there in a flash, well it took a long drive in the car from London actually, but just suspend your belief for a bit! (Incidentally, the drive was well worth it) The UFO is itself amazing both inside and out. Decked out in all white with touches of silver. At night it unleashes a new angle, lights on the outside, interplanetary projector on the inside. Amazing wow factor. The campsite is very safe, quiet and intimate- although none of the accommodation impinges on its neighbours. Children can run around, make friends, explore and play. The ‘utility block’ is spot on giving you all you need. There is plenty to do and explore on the doorstep, castles, wild life park, dinosaur park, the coast.... Highly recommended.

We'll be back!

I was a little dubious about having a "glamping" weekend for my daughter's 50th birthday, but of all the unusual celebrations we've planned, this was the best! The site was so original and unique, with great facilities, and the units were spotless. Many thanks to our gracious hosts for making 20 "young" ladies so welcome.

Unique and friendly glamming experience

We stayed in one of the yurts as a family of four (with 2 small children). The sight was unique, quirky, excellent facilities and a safe place for the kids to run around which they loved. It also looked incredible lit up in the night!! Would definitely recommend 😀

Brilliant site with original quirky features

We booked two nights in what we thought was just a Glamping area of a conventional camp site. We had no idea about the uniqueness of this site. We were pleasantly taken aback when we saw the bits of aircraft and a flying saucer in the field. Wolfgang welcomed us and gave us a tour of facilities. Excellent showers and kitchen area. Could do with more power in the showers. Space between units is excellent. Units are super clean and cosy. Unintrusive host. Extremely laid back and helpful when needed. Quirky and imaginative use of different kinds of accommodation. We gave 4 stars only because we felt a plumbed sink would have been very useful in our cabin cooking area. Also, a loo would be great. It's not a long walk to the shower area but in the middle of the night....? Overall you can't help but to enjoy this place. It's quiet, tucked away and ok to find although, a sign saying 'Apple Camping' would help. Great value for money...

Fantastic stay

We recently stayed in a yert at apple camping and it was amazing I have to say, the facilities the peace and tranquility, the yert was a fab experience and very cosy, the owners are so friendly and helpful..I can’t praise this place up enough to be honest

Fun experience

When my son said we were going back to Tenby after 25 years and staying in a witches hat, I thought he was mad. It was only for a long weekend. When I got out the car, I couldn’t believe my eyes. A airplane, a ufo was just a few funky objects to say in. The witches hat was great, being disabled the bed was just the right height. No big steps to climb and they provided a ramp for the wheelchair. The disabled toilets are the best I have ever seen. It was an experience no to be missed. Everyone was friendly and out for a good time even though we were strangers. The host is great fun, helpful. There is a shop, laundry and showers. It made a weekend that brought back memories of when I first visited Tenby and now added new and very memorable new ones.

Superb site in an even better location, withing 5 mins drive is Heatherton world of activities, Manor Wildlife park and dinosaur world. Ten mins drive to Tenby beach or Saundersfoot and Folly Farm. Such quirky acommodation, the only reason I give 4 stars instead of 5 is for the lack of childrens play facilities, a playground with climbing frame, swings etc would make it perfect. The toilet/shower blocks were immaculate, and the honesty box area had loads of supplies if you forget something... even toothbrushes! Will 100% be returning!

Wonderful, quality site

Just back from 4 nights in Rosebud yurt. Tucked away from the road, we got a great welcome and tour around the site from Wolf. Our yurt was spotlessly clean and plenty big enough for me and my son. The rest of the site was pristine too - from the toilets and showers to the lawns and public areas. The location is great too being within a few minutes of Tenby, Narberth and Pembroke. All in all a great site, relaxing few days and I may well return.

Out of this world!

We've just returned from an all-too-brief one night stay in this UFO in Pembrokeshire (a sentence I never thought I would write!). Where do I start – this place is amazing! This surely has to be one of the most visually striking places to glamp on planet earth. Surrounded by carefully cultivated grass banks, it really looks like this craft has just landed from a galaxy far, far away. The attention to detail is staggering – from silver space-age bedding, to dinky vintage robot toys, laser gun mugs, Space Invaders arcade game, and an amazing cosmos projector for night time. There's even button-operated steps that slowly lower (or an 'escape hatch' directly underneath if you can't wait). It's also incredibly comfortable and there's a comfy outdoor space with oversized bazaar bags to chill out in and enjoy the sun.

With such wonderfully unique accommodation, you might assume the rest of the site is afterthought. Not so. The beautifully landscaped grounds are a joy to behold. Apple trees dot the field and there are several quirky features like the strawberry bed (strawberries planted in an old antique bed frame), oversized orb lights that glow in the evening and a landlocked speedboat that the kids couldn't get enough of clambering over and playing pirates. The facilities here are impeccable, with proper hot power showers, flush loos, and an immaculately clean kitchen area which includes a well-stocked honesty shop.

The host Toby (and his right-hand man Wolf) couldn't have been more accommodating – even treating us to an smoke machine display underneath the UFO which when combined with the multicoloured LED lights on its outer shell made for an amazing show! Besides the UFO, there's a whole range of visually stunning accommodation (including a retro gypsy caravan, yurts and domes) each carefully plotted in its own pocket of the spacious field. For our next stay (which we're already planning!), we'd love to try the Witch's Hat cabin or the Jetstar plane (although it might be a step down altitude-wise after our cosmic spaceship stay!).

A safe space for children to play and grown ups to relax

The team at Apple camping can't do enough to make your visit a great stay. Toby and Wolf have just the right balance of visibility. There is plenty of room and everything is clean and well maintained. Our son woke one morning singing "everyone should have a bit of apple camping in their lives" over and over. We're not that worried about him! All I can say is, I had built in a days wiggle room before returning to work..... Instead we stayed an extra night. Thank you apple camping we will be back.

Ready for take off!

We stayed on the jet plane, had a great time. Facilities are good, you have your own kettle, fridge, job and microwave. There is a shared kitchen with more facilities. Shared toilets and showers we’re very clean and well maintained. We hope to come back sometime.
