A peaceful, eco-friendly glamping cabin, where you can get literally jump out of bed and dive straight into a lake from your own private deck. Step inside, and the cabin is comfortable and cosy; the curved roof is like an upturned hull, while the woodburner, rustic Scandi-style interiors, and breakfast hampers (local sausages, eggs and salty Welsh butter anyone?) make for the perfect romantic retreat. The open-plan living area – designed by local craftsmen who worked to the owner's brief – has a modern kitchen and huge sofa beds, accompanying the main king-size bedroom, while there’s a piping hot shower and bathroom on-board, too. Other thoughtful touches include delicious Welsh cakes, freshly cut wild flowers, and a hammock chair on the wraparound deck. This is a real ‘get away from it all' experience as there’s no WiFi, the cabin is solar-powered, and the lake itself can be accessed by canoe or from the shore. Some of the things you may hear whilst dipping your toes? Birds singing, cows mooing and reeds swaying. Fantastic.
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.
