Green Sheep Camping
Situated above the start of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, our smallholding is located near the lovely Amroth beach. It takes just 20 minutes to walk or 10 minutes to drive to this blue flag seaside village. Our campsite is well placed for easy access to other beautiful Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire beaches, as well as charming towns and a wide range of tourist attractions catering for all ages and interests. Outdoor enthusiasts, walkers, cyclists and runners will find plenty of local opportunities to pursue their activities.
What can be done from the base of Green Sheep Camping is only limited by your imagination.
WALKING AND HIKING
The world famous 186 mile (290 km) Pembrokeshire Coastal Path starts just to the south of our farm, but you don't have to be a serious hiker to enjoy stretching your legs. There is a whole range of walks to suit every ability, with some starting from the farm so that you don't need to get in the car.
You can explore the fern-filled woodland on the farm, along with neighbouring valleys to see what birds can be spotted. The ecosystem in this part of Britain is as close as we get to the temperate rainforests of New Zealand and Tasmania. The cliffs and beaches are a treasure trove for budding geologists and we even have a 7,000-year-old fossil forest that is exposed at low tide on Amroth beach.
Nearby Caldey and Skomer Islands are wonderful potential day-trips to see puffins and seals.
Colby Woodland Gardens (owned by the National Trust) is just 5 minutes drive away. In addition to the delights of the garden itself, the carpark is an ideal location to start a wonderful walk to the sea.
Literary buffs will enjoy a trip to Laugharne to visit Dylan Thomas's Boat House and his grave. Why not get your paint brushes out, or do a tour of the many artist galleries in the area?
SURFING AND PADDLEBOARDING
Amroth beach is 5 minutes drive away and it often has good surf conditions. For serious dudes, Pembrokeshire has many awesome surf beaches, including the famous Newgale Bay near St Davids. Stand Up Paddleboarding is increasingly popular, and local beaches and harbours are ideal for you to explore on your boards.
We benefit from very low light pollution, so the farm is an ideal place to gaze at the heavens.
The much loved seaside towns of Tenby and Saundersfoot are just down the coast from our smallholding and the quirky and artistic town of Narberth is only 20 minutes away. Slightly further away are Carmarthen and Britain's smallest city, St David's.
CASTLES & HISTORY
Pembrokeshire is full of castles that are a result of its rich history. St David's cathedral is beautiful and well worth a visit. Nearby the farm there are many traces of industrial heritage such as the ironworks near Wiseman's Bridge.
Our farm is well situated for day trips to places like; Folly Farm Zoo, Manor Zoo, Bluestone, Oakwood and the National Botanic Garden of Wales. Don't forget the St David's bug farm.
