1. Campfires, bushcraft and stargazing


Trellyn Woodland Campsite’s location is hard to beat. Not only does it lie within 10 miles of a dozen coves and beaches and barely 100 yards from the Pembrokeshire Coast Path at Abercastle, but you are also within easy striking distance of St David’s, Ramsey Island ( and the reconstructed Iron Age hill fort of Castell Henylls ( The campsite itself has plenty to keep you occupied, whether it’s stargazing around the campfire or learning how to make fire yourself on one of Trellyn’s three-hour bushcraft courses (from £15 per person). There are just five pitches, each with its own picnic table and campfire, while the Dragon Tipi has a double bed, two futons and a separate campfire kitchen. Upping the glampingstakes, the yurts have oak floors and handcrafted furniture, while the modern and spaciousgeodomes have panoramic windows and wood-burning stoves.

Best for kids aged: 6–12 years.

Price: Pitches £250, Family yurts from £690 – £840 (all sleep four to six)
