Sonar Submarine! Another UK first for Apple Camping, beneath the waves or beneath the ground (partially)

The Owner Says

Descend down the spiral staircase into an ex British naval sonar hull that was built to be attached to an HMS Destroyer, hard to describe but lots of fun to stay in. Triangular Sofa bed that converts into a dining table. A Tiny kitchen with a fridge, toaster, kettle and induction hobs. Sonar also has its own en-suite loo and highly original shower!

About Apple Camping

Suitable For

Glamping only. So no tents, campervans or caravans.


Owner Toby has sent his life round these parts and is never short of recommendations. Just ask if you want some local advice. 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.

Quiet and peaceful

Me and my other half stayed in the JetStar for 5 days , absolutely loved every moment, enjoyed waking up and sitting outside with a cup of coffee enjoying the view and silence, also so many places to explore. Definitely would like to experience the Pacman and the new submarine, only down side is it ended too soon could of easily spent another couple nights there, definitely recommend to anyone looking for a nice week getaway from the big city.

brilliant campsite

we stayed for 3 nights in the witches hat and it was spot on,clean and comfy beds,the kitchen with it has got most things,so most of the time you don't have to use the main one,toilet and sink we're really useful and when the shower is finished it'll be brilliant,site is really chilled and ideally positioned to access all the attractions and Tenby etc,would highly recommend this place

We all had such a great time!! We had no idea what to expect and nothing disappointed! We struggled to get a little trip away booked for the girls but the dates we wanted suddenly came up so it was a no brainer to book! Very cute campsite which was nice, clean and relaxing! We will definitely be back and will hopefully stay in the UFO.. Or the plane or train... Such a super choice of quirky places to sleep! Thank you for having us. Big shout out to Wolf... Super friendly and helpful on arrival and during our stay! Peace and love to all ✌️ xx

My son and I had such a great time during our stay. The Rosebud Yurt was super comfortable and the entire site was really well thought out (right down to the finest details)! The staff really went out of their way to make us feel welcome. It was a fab experience from start to finish. We'll definetly be back again soon!

Getting There

Turn right off the A477 which is sign posted Redberth then immediately take the next right which is sign posted to Jefferson. You will go over a hump backed bridge approximately 100m then pass Norchard Farmhouse and the farm of the same name on a sharp 90 degree right hand bend. The entrance to Apple Camping is just round this corner on the left.
