If you’ve set your sights on glamping in Pembrokeshire in South Wales, wonderful treats lie ahead of you. Famous for its stunning coastline, award-winning beaches and rich and vibrant history, this is an area well worth getting to know. Wigwam® Holidays Shellstone is a wonderful base for your adventures in South Wales.
Shellstone is a picturesque site, surrounded by mature native trees. Pretty wooden glamping pods sit among the trees, around a wide wildlife pond. Each cabin is set back in its own clearing, so it’s easy to feel that this peaceful and beautiful site is yours and yours alone.
In the morning, hop out of your soft bed and open the double french doors onto your private dining area. Enjoy breakfast al fresco with views across the pond or prepare a BBQ lunch while watching the children play. Each glamping pod comes with a fire pit and BBQ to enjoy good food in good company, day or night.
There are six Wigwam® cabins in total, and all are perfect for a luxurious glamping experience. Most of them sleep up to 4 adults. However, if you have a larger party, or if you someone in your group uses a wheelchair or is in need of extra mobility support, the Wigwam® Lodge Accessible sleeps up to five. As well as being roomy for larger groups, it is fully adapted to meet Category 3 disabled regulations.
Wigwam® Holidays Shellstone sits on the edge of a lovely little village called Jameston. It’s a short walk along a country lane from your cabin and boasts two excellent pubs - Tudor Lodge and the Swan Lake Inn. Both serve delicious food and a range of local ales. It’s worth booking ahead if you’re after a meal.
The village also plays host to events in the village hall throughout the year: film nights, dances and a weekly market all take place here, so make sure to check the events calendar and add a visit into your holiday itinerary.
Adventures further afield are also easy to get to from Wigwam® Holidays Shellstone. The site is close to the larger towns of Pembroke and Tenby. Both towns are rich with historical interest and offer a wide variety of places to eat and drink. A visit to Tenby Museum is a great way to learn about the historical importance of the area, and no visit to Pembrokeshire is complete without spending time wandering around Pembroke Castle.
Pembrokeshire National Park is set along the area’s stunning coastline. Rich in rare flora and fauna, it’s easy to see why this beautiful area is popular with walkers and nature lovers. Walks along this coast will take you through many breathtaking scenes, such as the gravity-defying Abereiddi and Traeth Llyfn steps at Porthgain Harbour. Another gorgeous option for walking is a stroll along the golden sandy beach downhill from Tenby Castle. This spot was voted Britan’s Best Beach by The Sunday Times in 2019. From there, escape on a boat to the monastic Caldey Island or spend the day exploring the Preseli Hills, steeped in ancient history.
If you’d like to get out and enjoy a truly thrilling treat, you’ll love the rides and rollercoasters at Oakwood Theme Park, just 10 miles from your glamping site. To see some more exotic nature and wildlife, visit Manor House Wildlife Park, just a four-mile drive from the glamping site along the B4318. Here, you can help feed the animals, take the pigs out for a walk, enjoy guided tours and talks and cuddle with giant rabbits.
Whatever you choose to do with your days on your Pembrokeshire glamping holiday, it’s always good to know that there’s a warm, inviting bed at the end of your busy day of sightseeing and exploring. You can be sure of a great night’s sleep in your cosy Wigwam® cabin: double glazing and insulated walls and flooring ensure a toasty stay, while your luxury foam mattress and peaceful surroundings will lull you into a sweet, restorative sleep.
One thing’s for sure in Pembrokeshire: you’ll need that good night’s sleep after a busy day of exploring to recuperate and enjoy even more of what this marvellous area has to offer the next day.
