Coastal woodland glamping and meadow camping pitches, nestled in a beautiful wooded valley, with short walk to a secluded sandy beach.
About: Nestled in an ancient wooded valley with views down to the spectacular North Pembrokeshire Coast, the Preseli Glamping meadow with secluded camping glades and woodland glamping, is just a 15 minute walk through the bluebell-carpeted National Trust woodland trails to the secluded sandy beach of Abermawr, and the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path.
Located on the wild and dramatic north Pembrokeshire coast between Fishguard and St David’s, Preseli Glamping is near the hill-top village of Mathry, and is a great spot from which to explore, right in the unspoilt heart of the National Park. Seven spacious camping glades fringe a rolling meadow amongst the wildflowers and woodland saplings, whilst a luxurious geodesic dome and two lovely bell tents are sheltered in an arboreal amphitheatre of birdsong, hidden at the foot of the valley. A rural retreat, rich in wildlife, Preseli Glamping offers a unique opportunity to restore and reconnect with Nature in a secluded coastal sanctuary. With a brand-new sparkling bathroom block, plenty of hot water provided by our air-source heat pump, private picnic tables and fire pits with cooking grills for every pitch, and a wide open grassy space for yoga, reading in the sun, ball games and children’s games, it’s the perfect setting for families, couples or groups of friends to escape, relax and reset in beautiful, comfortable surroundings. Kids are safe to play freely as the meadow is not suitable for vehicles, so all cars are parked securely in the private camping car park. Wheelbarrows are provided to transport your bags to your camping glade.
A plethora of local walking routes, starting and finishing at the campsite, as well as longer coast path walks which link up with the coastal shuttle buses, will immerse you in the natural and historical heritage of the landscape. From craggy cliffs and undulating coves, ancient drowned forests to Neolithic burial chambers; from Tregwynt Mill the oldest working woollen mill in Wales, to the magnificent St David’s 12th century cathedral. Exploring these well marked trails, swathed in bluebells, sea campion, yellow gorse and pink thrift flowers, you can spot inquisitive grey seals bobbing by the rocky shoreline, pods of harbour porpoise and Atlantic sea birds such as gannets fishing, peregrines diving and kittiwakes nesting. Mull over mesmerising rock pools where ruby-red beadlet anemones sway, blennies dart between pebbles and winkle shells shimmer in the sun… Comb the tideline for a mermaid’s purse or sea-smoothed driftwood.
Neighbouring Preseli Glamping is the 5-star sustainable outdoor activity centre, Preseli Venture, and here is the place to meet your adventurous edge. Sea kayaking trips will take you paddling amongst towering stack rocks and natural archways, booming sea caves and beautiful rock gardens. Take an invigorating plunge on a coasteering adventure, traversing the natural playground where the land meets the sea with the encouraging guidance of passionate and knowledgeable local guides. Suit up, boot up and pop up on clean, green, peeling waves with the help of expert surf instructors who’ll take you to the best blue-flag beach breaks. Excellent quality specialist kit and minibus transport to take you to the nearby chosen venue is provided from the adventure centre, right next to the campsite. Adventurers of all ages are very welcome with minimum age of 8 years.
After taking an invigorating sunset dip in the clean fresh waters of Abermawr bay, back in the comfort of the campsite, cosy up and cook on your open fire and relax for the evening under the starry night sky. Or alternatively stroll over to the Preseli Venture eco-lodge restaurant and bar where you can enjoy delicious and wholesome meals prepared with fresh locally sourced ingredients by their in-house chef, accompanied by a local brew from the well-stocked and beautifully furnished eco lodge bar.
Worth Noting: The neighbouring adventure centre offers a range of exciting activities for families and adults and these are also available to Preseli Glampers. The activities can be booked as half-day and full day activities.
