There's a beach in almost every direction you turn at this small-scale family campsite in the picturesque Pembrokeshire Coast National Park

When Lynne and Tim planted willows around a one acre fruit patch on their Pembrokeshire market garden, their intention was to help shelter the soft fruit they were growing for the local farmer’s market. What they didn’t realise is that they were also sowing the seeds for a camping sanctuary, transforming their home into one rather charming Pembrokeshire campsite. Today, you won’t meet a single camper leaving Spring Meadow Farm who isn’t singing its praises. They’re easy people to find too, since they all return again the next year!

Smack in the middle of St Davids Peninsula, Spring Meadow Farm’s enclosed meadows boast just five grassy pitches, providing ample space even when fully booked. Stays are of a simple and natural kind – there are no electrical hook-ups and each pitch has a moveable wooden picnic table, along with a firepit for that essential evening campfire. The remaining 12-acres are still a bountiful market garden – complete with polytunnels full of vegetables that are sold on site – and, though campervans are allowed, it’s predominantly tents that pepper the flat camping meadow.

It’s the relaxed approach to camping here that makes the place so endearing. Guests are welcome to stroll the margins of neighbouring fields, where unkempt hedges attract gold finches and grasshopper warblers, while kids can busy themselves on the outdoor table-tennis table. Several bright buddleias are also grown on the fringes of the camping meadows – earning their horticultural nickname as ‘the butterfly bush’ with the numbers they attract. It all gives the place a slightly wild and rustic feel, hidden in the back of beyond.

Above all else, however, it’s the location that keeps most of those praise-singing campers returning. Though it may feel delightfully isolated, Spring Meadow Farm is surrounded by popular beaches on almost every side. The coast path walk from Porthgain to Abereiddy is the spot to watch the sunset from, head west for surfing and swimming on Whitesands Beach or drop south to pretty Solva, where the long quayside is ideal for crabbing. The village overlooks a picturesque, dinghy-dotted estuary that is fed, in part, by a tiny stream originating back at the campsite itself. So campers here, it seems, are really just following the natural order: Always bound for the seaside.
