The Owner Says
Perched in a sheltered spot with views over the willows across the Brandy Brook valley, the 5m Mongolian yurt comes with a double bed, two single futon chairs, plenty of storage for your things, a book shelf and a cosy stove to warm you up. The white silk lining inside, behind the lattice, gives it a luxurious finish, calming on the eye. The star gazing crown above is covered with a transparent plastic cover so that you can lie down and gaze up at the stars or the sea gulls in the evening light, heading back to the coast after a trip inland.
Apart from the ensuite compost loo and gas shower, there is also a camp kitchen containing everything you need. Three containers under the counter have all your crockery, cutlery, pots and pans, spices, serving bowls, you name it, as well as a cool box to keep perishables cold for longer. Also in the camp kitchen and immediately outside your door you will find:
- Gas hob
- Kitchen sink with hot and cold water
- All kitchen equipment including dining crockery, bowls, pots and pans etc
- Picnic table
- Camp fire
- Solar lights
- Bins for general waste and recycling

ActivitiesA 10-minute walk from site there's a playground for those with young kids, 2 public tennis courts and a good pub (see Food & Drink), while you can also walk to the main coastal footpath for longer rambles along the cliffs. Walking from the campsite, there is a magical woodland walk along the ancient Brandy Brook valley. Great for kids. It's a circular walk that takes you past Roch Castle (01437 725566) and back. It takes less than 5 minutes to drive to the breathtaking Newgale Beach, a 2-mile stretch of sand at the heart of St Brides Bay and one of Pembrokeshire’s finest blue flag beaches. It's backed by cafés and places you can hire surf boards, while sea kayaking, and kite- and wind-surfing are also options. The beach is so expansive that there's room for all types though, from family sand-castle building at one end to youngsters riding waves at the other. For a smaller beach, Nolton Haven is only 7 minutes in the car. Our favourite family beach with easy access from the car and a smaller option and good access to coastal walks. Finally, a visit to Hilton Court (01437 710262; 5 minutes by car) is a must. Home to a tranquil woodland garden with its own lake and magical little houses, the place is a treasure trove for a child's imagination, while there is also a on-site pottery studio, a restaurant and a tea room. The famous Melin Tregwynt (01348 891 225) woollen mill is also just 15 minutes drive away.
Food & DrinkIt takes just over 5 minutes to walk to The Victoria (01437 710426) in Roch, a welcoming old pub with its own micro brewery. Good for a pint. Roch is also home to Hilton Court Gardens (01437 710262) where there's a restaurant and tea rooms, while the fisherman in the village sells exceptional dressed crab caught locally. Beyond, head to nearby Solva for choices – The Cambrian (01437 721210) is a great gastro pub, The Ship (01437 721528) is a little cheaper and Café 35 (01437 729236) does top fish and chips – or drive the 15 minutes to St Davids. For a really special meal out, Druidstone Hotel is one of those places you'll never forget. Nestled on top of the Druidston beach, it boasts the most beautiful sea views in a rambling stone built house with walled garden and cosy cellar bar. (01437 781221 - needs booking in advance)
