Big Barn Camping: The geodesic dome

General

  • Small friendly eco site on a smallholding, 2.5 miles from Laugharne
  • 15 minutes from spectacular Carmarthenshire/Pembrokeshire beaches
  • Stargazing haven with campfires allowed

You'll certainly want to wax lyrical when you arive at this lush little site. Two and a half miles from Dylan Thomas's house at Laugharne, Big Barn Camping is a cracking Carmarthenshire site in a wildlife haven where red kites and other birds of prey regularly soar overhead.

There's stacks of space to stroll about here: the site is on a Georgian farm covering 36 acres of meadows and woodland (and home to sheep, pigs, chickens and waterfowl if you want to say hi while on your travels). The views are splendid, with sun over the countryside, rainbows if it rains, and stars aplenty at night against the flames of your fire; Big Barn is in a stargazing haven and campfires are allowed.

Off site, it's two and a half miles or under 10 minutes' drive to the coastal town of Laugharne, famed as the final home of Dylan Thomas, 15 minutes to Pendine Sands and 20 to Carmarthen; it's also within 20 minutes of Pembrokeshire beaches at Amroth and Saundersfoot. Walks around Laugharne and the estuary of the River Taf are popular picks for local wanders.

The site is eco friendly, using solar power, compost toilets and full recycling. It's part of the Greener Camping Club Association; customers that are currently non-members can sign up when booking and a tree will be planted for you, as well as giving you access to over 140 other GCC sites.

Local attractions

The famed former home of famed Welsh poet Dylan Thomas, The Boathouse, is under 10 minutes' drive from the site. There are spectacular views of the Taf estuary from here (Thomas's first poem after moving in was on the view from his writing shed), and you should be able to see local species like seals and oystercatchers as well as herons and egrets.

From The Boathouse (have a sturdy bite to eat in the tearoom first), set off on the mighty Wales Coast Path, the 870-mile route from Chepstow in Monmouthshire north to Queensferry in Flintshire. This is some spectacular scenery (hailed by travel boffins as the best coastal landscape in Britain), so aim to hike as much as you can manage; the Carmarthenshire section is 68 miles and includes the 2,470 acres of the Millennium Coastal Park overlooking the Gower peninsula.

A couple of castles are within easy reach (Laugharne is 10 minutes' drive away and Llansteffan 25), but for a day out with a difference drive the 15 minutes to Pendine Sands, home of the splendid Museum of Speed.

Must see

  • Pembrey Country Park (17.7 kilometers)
  • National Botanic Garden of Wales (24.6 kilometers)
  • National Wool Museum (26.8 kilometers)

National Trust

  • Tudor Merchant's House (19.4 kilometers)
  • Rhossili Visitor Centre and Shop (28.5 kilometers)
