The Owner Says

Our four metre bell tents nestled within our woodland are cosy, tastefully furnished and perfect for either couples wanting a romantic getaway or small families wanting a peaceful woodland glamping experience. These charming tents are nestled within our woodland, set apart from the open meadow so provide a more private and secluded alternative to our meadow glamping.

Each bell tent is kitted out with a luxury foam mattress on a recycled matted floor, pillows, duvets and full bedding, basic cooking equipment (cutlery, plates, BBQ tongs, pans, a coolbox to store your food...etc.) and solar powered lamps. You also get a private fire pit/BBQ, table and stools & use of the HOT TUB.

We can put additional beds in the bell tents to meet your requirements, 1 double bed and a single for 3 people or 1 double bed and 2 singles for 4 people.

Features & Facilities

The meadow has 2 flushing toilets, and 2 hot gas showers. The woodland glade has 1 hot gas shower and 1 composting toilet. Each also has a washing up area with clean drinking water, a kitchen sink, bins for recycling and food preparation worktop. There is a communal shelter provided in the meadow, available for all to use, to cook and eat under, if the weather turns bad. Each bell tent is accompanied by a private shelter with a firepit that doubles up as a BBQ, picnic benches and a hammock. Each camping pitch has a firepit/BBQ and a picnic bench. The meadow has a selection of family-friendly games and a swing, plus ample space for ball games.

Activities

It's a few hundred metres from your tent to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, which you can follow to the Castle Pill Inlet of the Daugleddau estuary. From the water’s edge, you can continue to Milford Marina, home to a number of shops, cafés, a maritime museum (01646 694496), boat trips, a waterfront gallery and several popular waterfront bars and restaurants, or you can head along the coast path to the village of Hazelbeach and it's dog-friendly pub The Ferry Inn (01646 600270). It's a 10-minute drive to the unspoilt and dog-friendly beach of Sandy Haven, while the big sandy beach of Broad Haven is only a 15 minute drive away with a beach-side shop, pub, café and opportunities to hire wetsuits, kayaks, paddles and surf boards. For a spot of history, it's 15 minutes to Henry VII’s Pembroke Castle (01646 681510) and 30 minutes to the stunning cathedral (01437 720202) that classifies tiny St Davids as a city (the smallest city in the UK).

Getting There

Please don't follow google maps directions to us, as it takes you down a bridleway rather than a road. Instead follow directions for sa73 1dn and keep a look out a couple of miles along the Waterston road (the B4325 between Waterston and Blackbridge) for a farm gate immediately adjacent to the blue gates of JP Auto's Garage (please note there are a set of blue gates in Waterston village itself, but we are more than a mile further on than this). Go through the farm gate (with the wooden sign of a wind turbine and tree) to the right of this garage, drive down the lane and go through the second gate on left (signposted Eco-escape). Head down the field to the gate in the middle (the parking area) and walk through gate with the 'no vehicles' sign. The glamping and camping meadow is to your left, the woodland glamping and camping area is through another two gates to your right. There is a wheelbarrow in the field you are welcome to use for your things (we don't allow cars in the meadow).

The nearest train station is Milford Haven (0845 748 4950) a 5-minute drive away. The nearest bus stop is approximately 1 mile away (walkable up a country lane), in Steynton. Taxis are relatively cheap - 01646 698818 (Jock's Taxis).
