Yurts and quirks in a Pembrokeshire meadow, where there's a couple of aeroplanes, a UFO and a giant PacMan-themed glamping pod to discover

Apple Camping is a glamping site with a difference. The three Mongolian-style yurts – two for families, one just for couples – have recently been drawing customers to this four-acre meadow in rural Pembrokeshire but owner Toby's newest additions have caused more of a stir. After all, it's not everyday local residents get to see a 20m-long Jet Star aeroplane being driven down their country lanes. And as for the space craft... who knows how that arrived?

First opened in 2015 and attracting early glampers for its pleasing location near the old harbour towns of Tenby and Saundersfoot, Apple Camping is a well equipped glamping site with modern shower, laundry and washing facilities and covered BBQ areas and kitchens outside each yurt. In one corner, the Jet Star noses from the trees, a grey fuselage with its wings missing, like a crash-landed aircraft from the opening scene of Lost or the pages of Lord of the Flies. This is no accident, though. Inside the ex-first class aircraft still has the original bar, ambient lighting and a exquisitely converted captain's cabin with a double bed and another single bed behind the cockpit, while, up front, you can play pilot using the Xbox provided, which comes readied with flight-simulator games. In 2019, meanwhile, a second airliner – and Etihad Airways Airbus – 'crash landed' into the scene too, similarly equipped with original features (like a trolly dolly) as well as added facilities like a kitchen.

The yurts, of course, still remain. They have everything needed for those looking for a more restrained glamping style – comfortable and cosy without any over the top quirkiness – while, for those who really want something different, Toby has also added a giant PacMan themed geodesic dome (complete with a PacMan console inside) and has built an innovative space craft. The saucer-shaped UFO is, needless to say, suitably out of this world in the experience it offers. There's a double bed and two singles, cooking facilities and comfortable seating, but also a monitor for playing classic 80s games like Space Invaders and Defender. The main entrance hatch, meanwhile, works by remote control, while eight different windows provide all-round views of the surroundings.

Once you've landed and have you're feet back on solid ground, you can slip out into the surrounding countryside or down to the coast. It's a ten minute drive to the nearest beach and, located just a few hundred metres from the nearest A-road, the campsite is conveniently placed for really exploring the Pembrokeshire area. Kayak in the Daugleddau estuary, catch crabs of Tenby harbour wall or kick back on Saundersfoot's blue flag beach.



Modern, communal shower and toilet block, with hot showers and disabled facilities; separate laundry area with washing machine, dryer and washing lines; BBQ and kitchen area outside each yurt and another shared kitchen outside the Jet Star. The kitchen includes a toaster, kettle, cooker and fridge. See accommodation for individual glamping unit details.

Suitable For

Glamping only. So no tents, campervans or caravans.


Owner Toby has sent his life round these parts and is never short of recommendations. Just ask if you want some local advice. For families, Manor House Wildlife Park (01646 651201) offers a chance to explore the globe – head down to the African Village where you can walk with lemurs or trek through the wallaby enclosure in the Australian bush. Back in Britain, the nearby harbour town of Tenby is a cute little spot, with ferries running out to Caldy Island, or try the harbour in Saundersfoot where there is also a sandy, blue flag beach. Freshwater West, meanwhile, was the filing location for Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows and Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood, while Barafundle Bay was recently voted the best beach in Wales.

Food & Drink

The family-friendly, Parsonage Farm Inn (01834 871436) in the village of St Florence (2¼ miles) is an excellent local pub, while the Sun (01834 871322), also in St Florence, is a traditional picture-postcard pub full of local memorabilia.

Mouldy, overpriced tents. No first aid kit. Unsuitable for families.

I booked with my family, taking four large tents including the Pac Man tent. Most of the tents were fine, with only a few rough edges. However one of the tents was covered with black mould and mildew and, worse, leaked in several places. This left my sister, with young children and a baby, afraid to use the electric lights and using cups to catch leaks. We complained to the owner, who apologised, promised to look into it and offered to put up a new bell tent for us. Unfortunately the new tent was smaller and had nothing in it - no carpet, no matting, no furniture, making it completely pointless and just as wet. The owner was on site the following day and didn't check in on us even as the rain worsened. Elsewhere, the inconsistent service was another problem. Toilets we're constantly running out of toilet paper. Showers we're flooding. Several of the kitchens for the more expensive tents do not have sinks or fridges as big as the smaller tents. Mice were getting into one of our kitchens. When glamping, I don't expect full hotel service and appreciate the rustic feel. But when you're charging £100s per night and competing with hotel options I expect tents that are at least dry and mould free, facilities which are suitable and an environment that is safe for children. We enjoyed our stay at Apple Camping in Tenby, but it was despite the campsite and not because of it. I wouldn't recommend, especially for families.
