Your car may possibly want a nice rest after a drive to Pembrokeshire. Which is why there aren’t many Mor prime Pembrokeshire locales than Glan-Y-Mor Camp Site: the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and the teenily enticing city of St Davids are within walking distance and it’s a simple saunter to the nearest beach, cutely compact Caerfai. Going further afield? There are regular local bus services to the many other beaches in the area, for surfing, sunbathing or snapping the coastal views.
Glan-Y-Mor is on two and a half acres of flat grass among the grounds of former guesthouse and nineteenth century house Glan-Y-Mor (rumour has it that the house was once a haunt for smugglers peddling their nefarious wares). These days, it’s a peaceful place to use as a base for touring around St Davids Peninsula via any way that takes your fancy: stick to walking, hail down a bus or hire a bike on site for a coast path cycle.
The roomy pitches all have rather stunning views of St Brides Bay to the south and include access to free hot showers, loos, a washing-up area, chemical loo disposal and an ice pack freezer. Supplies and essentials are plentiful locally, even on foot: an organic farm shop selling milk, cheese, bread, bacon and warm morning croissants is about half a mile down the road, and St Davids has a first-class food and wine deli selling fresh local produce and made to order rolls and baguettes. Your car will thank you for the rest…
