The Owner Says
A truly unique place to stay - retaining most of the original features, including the illuminated bar area. The Jetstar is a first class executive jet plane that would have carried up to nine passengers. Originally built in the 1970, it has been expertly modified to create comfortable glamping accommodation, and to the rear is a new addition, a spacious double bedroom in the style of a first class ships cabin. There is a toilet and cold water basin on board the plane and the cockpit has an Xbox console with some flight games. As well as the double bed in the cabin area, there is a small single bed behind the cockpit. (This is only 5'7"/170cm which is fine for many adults, but not all!) There is also a leather sofa on the plane which is 6'4". Given this configuration, it is more suited to a couple or two adults and two children. The cabin and the cockpit are powered by mains electricity however the fuselage has the planes original lighting and is powered by car batteries and should be used economically. There is a double plug with usb ports which lamps can be plugged in. A blue tooth compatible CD and radio is mounted in the main fuselage. A nearby facilities building has hot showers and toilets, (including disabled access) plus a kitchen area with sink, pots, pans, cutlery, fridges, toaster and kettle. There is also a laundry area with washing machine and dryer which can be used by request at an additional cost. If you like to BBQ...we have a large gas fired grill station with two cooking rings on each side. Guests are respectfully requested to remove shoes when wet. Elsewhere on our alternative campsite, you'll see a variety of other glamping structures including Mongolian yurts, Bell tents, Showmans' Caravan, Geodesic Dome and coming soon - a UFO! Our quirky campsite is designed experience the outdoors in a rustic setting. We look forward to welcoming you to Apple Camping!

About Apple Camping
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.

Relaxing , fun experience
Stayed for 4 nights in the UFO. Such a novelty ... and good facilities.. Can’t say the weather was kind to us but hearing the rain on the roof of the UFO all night was quite relaxing ! Good location for Tenby, Carmarthen and Saundersfoot. When you lead a busy lifestyle a break like this certainly relaxes you and was a perfect way to unwind.
Very cool glamping experience on a fabulous site in a stunning area
My husband and I had a wonderful 2 night stay in the "Arabian Nights" Airbus. Everything you should ever need, and so much more. Trolley dolly fun. Secure site which is keep in a lovely condition. Beautifully peaceful too. We will be back and plan to try all the different accommodation.
Fun and Unique Experience
This was arranged by our daughter as a birthday treat for my partner and myself as we are both Commercial pilots, with my partner still flying the Airbus type we stayed in. The communication was excellent and the campsite very easy to find. We were met very warmly by the host and given a tour of this totally unique campsite. We could park directly outside the accommodation so unloading was very easy and quick. The aircraft was absolutely spotless and warm (despite it being one of the coldest September nights on record). There was everything you could want from tea/coffee to lashings of hot water in the shower, a fridge, microwave and induction hob. The overhead lockers provided ample storage for all our weekend clothes and cases. There was loads of nearby places to visit with children and I can't wait to visit again.
very relaxing time away with hosts extremely friendly and accommodating
we stayed in the rosebud yurt for 2 days . the accommodation was extremely comfortable and the separate covered kitchen area made it very convenient to cook in comfort during our 2 days. the Yurt was well sited and private but located conveniently to shared shower and toilet block. The shared block was extremely clean and showers excellent . the shared area had ample facilities for showering/washing clothes / dishes and shared items for cooking. overall a very enjoyable stay in a quiet peaceful location with welcoming hosts. the site location is within 5 miles of Tenby and Saundersfoot so very convenient

Fab few days
We had a wonderful stay at Apple Camping, there was great communication between the hosts and myself, via phone and email. They greeted us when we arrived and showed us around the site. The site is so wonderfully interesting looking at all the different lodges, and lots of space between all of them. The cooking facilities were great, and we were able to sit outside every morning in the sunshine. Showers were hot and cleanliness was good. We had a really enjoyable stay-so close to the coast for walking and going to the beaches. Barafundle and Fresh water East were our favourites. The Stackpole Inn had a lovely garden and did great food. We will be back to try another cabin!
Apple Camping is located at Apple Camping, Redberth, Pembrokeshire SA70 8RX
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.
