Grass Pitch

Grass pitch Sleeps 6 16 Available
A basic, peaceful, family-friendly campsite in Pembrokeshire, where campfires are welcome and the sea, sand and surf of the Welsh coast are within easy reach

On the stillest of still nights at Walton West Campsite in Pembrokeshire you can hear the waves crashing along the coast. It’s less than a mile to the beach (less than a mile to two beaches, in fact) but all the same the soft crunch of water tumbling in upon itself is usually lost beneath a gentle chorus of other sounds. Campfires crackle, marshmallows bubble, wildlife rustles among the bushes and at dusk the resident barn owl can sometimes be heard. They are the sounds of traditional, no-frills camping. And for folks like us heading to the coast, they are exactly what we’re looking for.

Set in an organic meadow, where short camping lawns have been mown into irregular aprons of longer wild grass, Walton West Campsite is a simple site of old with four flush toilets, a couple of hot showers and washing-up sinks, half a dozen fridge freezers but very little else besides. There are no electrical hook-ups – though small campervans are still welcome – and there’s no shop, café or playground. The entertainment here is more about having space, peace, being surrounded by nature and a cracking beach within easy reach.

Little Haven is the closest – a picturesque fishing village with plenty of facilities (car parking, toilets, etc) and quaint village pubs nestled into a sheltered valley that opens up onto a beautiful golden beach. The sandy bay is dotted with rock pools and spectacular craggy formations to the sides, while there's easy access onto the beach itself – ideal for families with young children. It also offers safe swimming and surfing for all ages and abilities. Once you round the headland, the beach actually stretches much further, linking up with neighbouring Broad Haven. It’s here that you can hire water sports equipment to make the most of the surf, or retreat back onto land to snake your way along the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. It too can be easily reached from the campsite.

At night the skies remain wonderfully dark. The campsite is within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and not only does this mean spectacular scenery and wildlife but also restrictions on further building, so there's no neon urban glow once the sun sets. Dusk means putting another log on the fire, wrapping up in a blanket and admiring the spectacular star lit skies. The unblemished nighttime views echo the Walton West ethos – that interference and manmade luxuries aren’t the way to enjoy the great outdoors and just leaving things alone works much better. Walton West Campsite has, but for the basic facilities and the occasional trim of the grass, been left nicely alone for campers to enjoy. And isn’t that what camping’s about?
