This well-equipped two-person shepherd’s hut – built by local Welsh craftsmen – is set in beautiful Pembrokeshire farmland. Your mini-camp has everything you can think of: there’s an inbuilt double-bed cocooned at one end of the hut, a fantastic stove warming the entire abode, a French toaster – plus, a beautiful copper basin can be found in the kitchen. The decor is stylish and cosy, with heaps of throws provided, and all bedding and towels you need. Space inside has been smartly increased by adding an extra, up-cycled horsebox next door – which, in turn, houses an off-grid bathroom with a gas-powered hot shower, sink and toilet. There’s even room to pitch an extra tent outside, too, if you fancy bringing a few more people along. The hut provides comfortable accommodation for wildlife watchers (the place is buzzing with birdlife) and photographers are drawn to the big Welsh skies.
Based in the heart of an organic dairy farm on the Cleddau Estuary, Dragonfly Camping is accessed by a long stone track off a quiet country road, so you’ll be blissfully disconnected and completely off-grid, with birdsong as your soundtrack. Actually, to say it’s disconnected isn't the whole story; nearby villages such as Lawrenny are tiny but do play host to a local shop, cricket club and a lovely 12th century church. It’s a little further down to the quay where the boat club is neighboured by charming tearooms, and the garden there makes a great spot to have a brew after walking the waterside footpath (which takes you through the National Trust-owned Cleddau Woodlands). Back at Dragonfly, glampers have the choice of a beautifully crafted shepherd's hut and a luxury floating cabin, both set in scenic farmland just beyond estuary. Bruce, your host, grew up here and has been farming the land for over 30 years, building up his prized organic dairy herd. Over 300 acres, there's a mixture of woodland, grassland, saltmarsh and moorland providing a wonderful pasture for the cows and sheep and a unique habitat for many bird and animal species. With his wife Nicola, they have created a stunning getaway, where guests can relax and recharge, whilst enjoying Pembrokeshire's great outdoors.
