Digs In The Wig
A unique, luxury camping experience, in a mostly untouched magical woodland in Pembrokeshire.
About: The Preseli Hills in Pembrokeshire were once covered by forest but today the area is better known for its expanses of open lowland and beautiful hills.
On its southern edges there’s a peaceful stretch of ancient woodland that still has a thoroughly timeless feel. Inhabitants cook over campfires, the smell of wood smoke lingering in the air, and children play in the long wild grass. It is, of course, a campsite and an excellent one at that.
There are just five camping pitches in total at Digs in the Wig campsite, each in a private clearing with its own campfire pit and stack of free firewood. The highest standards of sustainability have been reached and, as a result, facilities remain minimal and the wild, natural ecosystems here are largely untouched. Grassy clearings are strewn with tall buttercups and wild garlic grows in springtime beside the shadier patches of trees.
There are private eco loos and kitchens for each pitch, communal fridge-freezers and washing machine and also a cosy chill-out 'hwb' if you want to be a bit more sociable.
Digs is two miles from Maenclochog, where there’s a newsagents, café and petrol station. Slightly further are the towns of Narberth and Haverfordwest which will have just about anything you would need for your stay. Digs lends itself to those who want a peaceful camping experience and, of course, to those hoping to explore the stunning Preseli Hills.
Worth Noting: The Preselis have Special Area of Conservation status and are extremely popular with walkers. From hillforts and stone circles to ancient burial grounds, there are plenty of sights to appreciate, while newer Llysyfran Reservoir is two miles away and offers sailing, windsurfing and canoeing (along with cycling and walking on the seven-mile-long perimeter track).
