Authentic Mongolian yurts and camping in a laid-back Pembrokeshire site with scenic views and friendly alpacas.

Wellstone Camping is what you get when owners with an eye for natural beauty take over an idyllic campsite and spruce it up with their own ideas. Owners Dan and Lesley knew a perfect staycation location when they saw one and, after purchasing Wellstone this year, gave this already-scenic spot a makeover. They added two Mongolian yurts and introduced a 'pitch-where-you-please' policy for regular campers which means everyone gets to enjoy their perfect pitch at this riverside site in Pembrokeshire.

The Wellstone site is tucked away in a valley along the River Tâf, favourably placed just outside the village of Llanfyrnach and 12 miles away from the sprawling Pembrokeshire coast. Visitors can opt to stay in either of the two eye-catching Mongolian yurts, or pick their own spot in one of the site's little pockets of glade camping. This choose-your-own-pitch approach allows guests to find their ideal location (after confirmation from the site's owners) and set up their home-away-from-home just how they like it. Whether you want a view overlooking the river or a pitch nestled in shade, it can probably be arranged. Spend your time away paddling in the river, which has been newly renovated to make it more swimmer-friendly, or get up close with the alpacas that graze the site's fields.

But while its picturesque campsite is inviting in itself, Wellstone's unique Mongolian yurts are certainly its most intriguing option. Both the Red Kite yurt and Badger yurt provide comfortable, authentically-furnished accommodation that is brimming with character. Their colourful East Asian design provides a juxtaposition with their Welsh countryside setting that works surprisingly well. Each yurt boasts its own shower room, flushing toilet, and small kitchen shed too, so they are a lot more than just eye candy.

Although Wellstone Camping is ideal for laid-back campers who don't want to do much moving around, its location within the heart of North Pembrokeshire makes it the ideal spot to drop your bags and explore your surroundings. A disused railway line, dappled with sun and shade, runs through the site for scenic walks, while the mountainous Preseli Hills are only three miles away. Some of the region's finest beaches are within driving distance, such as the dune-backed Newport Sands that's frequently descended upon by surfers, sailors, and anglers alike, and the National Trust hidden cove of Mwnt, where you may spot a dolphin or two frolicking in the open sea. It all makes for one of the most naturally beautiful destinations you're likely to find.

The Owner Says

Wellstone Yurts and Camping promises peaceful riverside yurts and camping pitches, woodland walks, fantastic birdlife and friendly alpacas.

The site is nestled in a valley on the upper reaches of the River Taf, just 12 miles from the stunning Pembrokeshire coastline.

You can walk along the disused railway line dappled with sun and shade, take a dip in the river or simply chill out by your tent.

The location is truly magical – a sun trap when the skies are blue and sheltered from coastal winds.

In addition we have 15-20 pitches for you to bring your own tent.
