Comfortable shepherd's hut and yurt glamping a stone's throw from the beaches (and walking) of the Pembrokeshire coast

Rustic and back-to-basics, there was a simple charm to Becks Bay Camping when it first opened in 2006. It was a natural next step for friendly owner, Tom, though, to branch out in the prevailing years and add a cluster of secluded glamping options too. Now the enviable meadow, set just back from the Pembrokeshire cliffs, is home to furnished bell tents, a new, spacious yurt and, in a separate and private area, a luxury shepherd's hut for couples. It may not sound as back-to-basics as it once was but it retains that homespun charm and, if you don't fancy camping, it's the perfect way to enjoy that same, oh so special, seaside location.

The real star of the show is the Frankshore Shepherd’s Hut, an abode that, despite its traditional roots, really is a far cry from camping of old. Complete with electricity, a proper bed and en suite bathroom, it’s almost a self-catered cottage in miniature, housed within the quaint, corrugated cladding of a shepherd’s cabin. There are gas hobs for cooking, a heater for your towels and, of course, a wood-burning stove, so you can shelter yourself away if the weather turns and listen to the rain tap tap tapping on the roof top. Tastefully decorated and furnished, it’s a wonderfully cosy retreat.

It’s the priceless location of it all that's the real draw though. Even as your drive here, passing through the colourful old harbour town of Tenby, the scenery of the Pembrokeshire coast stands out. Tucked beyond the roads and across a meadow, Becks Bay Glamping can feel rather cut-off and secluded, yet wander back across the fields and glampers can quickly connect up to the famous Pembrokeshire Coast Path, leading in well worn twists and turns between the coves and beaches that mark this landscape out. It’s not long before you’re stumbling across Tenby’s ancient stone castle, Tudor merchant’s house and pretty harbour beach. A lick of ice-cream is a deserved reward.

While there’s space for a toddler and cots are available by request, the hut is best suited as a couple’s retreat for those who enjoy some extra comforts. The bell tents, meanwhile, can sleep four and the yurt a family of five and the whole site is small and spread out so you always have ample space. Secluded and serene, while remaining accessible, it pulls of the great feat of offering one of the best locations in popular Pembrokeshire while still allowing you to escape the summer crowds. Bliss.

Nearby

The hut has direct access to the Pembrokeshire Coast path – simply stroll across the meadow and cross the road to where it passes on the far side. From here you can easily connect to some of the best beaches on the Manorbier peninsular, with secluded sandy beaches both east and west of the main surf beach. Precipe and Swan Lake Bay are particular local favourites. Nearby Tenby; is an excellent old walled town to visit, with a harbour and expansive beaches at low tide. There are plenty of treats on the waterfront, too, with fish and chippies, ice-cream and more to be had!

Stroll across the meadow to Bubbleton Farm Shop & Café (07929 334826) on site and a further 15 minutes to Waves Italian restaurant (01834 870085) or the Lydstep Tavern (01834 871521) just beyond. The bright blue painted Cross Inn (01834 844665) in Penally is also a top choice – home to a fantastic, traditional, seaside pub atmosphere – while The Plantagenet (01834 842350) in Tenby is a high-end option set in a romantic 10th century building – the oldest in town.

The Owner Says

This must be the most romantic place to stay in Pembrokeshire! Set in an idyllic, secluded area in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park within walking distance of two beaches, this gorgeous Shepherds Hut is a unique glamping escape.

Furnished in a delightful antique Welsh style, it is a beautifully finished, hand crafted Shepherd's Hut by the sea, with a bathroom and kitchen, and a wood burning stove. Open the stable door whilst cooking your breakfast and then enjoy the blissfully peaceful rolling landscape while you dine.

Our farm is ideally located just 2 miles from Tenby and 3 miles from Manorbier. It is connected to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, which is perfect for walking to nearby beaches: Lydstep is a 15 minute walk to the West and Penally 20 minutes to the East. Trefloyne and Tenby golf clubs are also within walking distance.
