A small, tents-only, off-grid campsite on a working sheep farm in rural Pembrokeshire

At first glance, Great Redford Camping is a fairly back-to-basics affair. It’s a tent-only campsite of five pitches on a 25-acre sheep farm. Just below the surface, however, it becomes clear that there are plenty of little touches that go down well with proper campers. There's a private compost loo for every pitch, for example, and a picnic bench each too, while sustainably sourced firewood is included in the price. But there’s more to it than that. Owner Lisa and her two children have put together a simple and functional base, with a focus on low-impact living, from which to explore nearly everything that Pembrokeshire has to offer.

Situated just a couple of miles south of the quaint, and increasingly famous, town of Narberth and a ten-minute drive north from the stunning beaches of Amroth and Saundersfoot, this is a campsite that you might not want to leave once you’ve pegged down the guy ropes, but that you probably should. In all directions there is something to do for families and for couples alike. That’s not to say there is nothing to do on the campsite itself. One of the adjacent fields has been mown especially for the use of ball games and guests are free to roam the farm or wander lazily down to the brook and dipping pond where indigenous tree species have recently been planted as part of a rewilding project.

On the perimeter of the camping field, marked by the hazel and hawthorn hedgerows, are the facilities: three good hot water showers with cubicles tastefully upcycled from pallets, a washing up sink and extra basins for brushing teeth. Don’t forget head torches, though – there's no artificial lighting here. All the better for marvelling at the blanket of stars you’ll find yourself under on cloudless nights. The minimal light pollution is just another reminder of what makes this site so special; a quiet, rural location, with bucket loads of space yet still within five miles of the coast. As you drive past the caravan site near the farm entrance and mill about in busy Tenby, 25 minutes' away, you can feel just a little bit smug you found somewhere so far from the crowds yet so close to the attractions. And far more than the basic site it seemed at first glance.

Beaches - if nothing else, Pembrokeshire is well-known for its world-class beaches. Fortunately, the likes of Saundersfoot, with its blue-flag grade beach is not far away. Amroth is also nearby, perfect for having a fish and chip supper followed by a walk along the sand. At low tide, an ancient petrified forest reveals itself, breaking the surface of the sand amidst the surf.

Out on the western reaches of the Pembrokeshire coastline, and in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, is St.Bride’s Bay. Stretching North to South, encompassing several small seaside towns and villages, and several long beaches, St.Bride’s Bay has a great deal to offer anyone with an interest in the wild outdoors. With surf hire at Newgale, and shops and eateries in the likes of Broad Haven, there is something to cater for all tastes. Not to mention the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, with spectacular scenery and bustling wildlife.
