Four fantastic Welsh campsites to book this spring!

I recently came across a quote by Alan Kesselheim and it goes like this “a great many people, and more all the time, live their entire lives without ever once sleeping out under the stars.”. If this is true of the UK then that is truly a shame. To help remedy this, we’ve researched a selection of Welsh campsites that will take you out of your normal routines and open you up to the possibilities waiting in nature. 

1 Hafod y Llan Campsite – link here

Located in Snowdonia National Park’s Nant Gwynant Valley, Hafod y Llan is a photogenic family friendly campsite with all the usual amenities. Run by the National Trust, the site sits on a Site of Special Scientific Interest covering 4000 acres. Local attractions include the idyllic village of Beddgelert, a farm, waterfalls and wild valleys. In summary; the perfect getaway.
Where? Hafod y Llan, Snowdonia, Caernarfon, Gwynedd, LL55 4NQ.

2 Llanborth Campervan Site – link here

The small and quiet Llanborth Campervan site is found on the beautiful Cardiganshire coast of West Wales. Set only 400 metres from the beach and surrounded by greenery, local walking paths through the woods join onto the reputed all-Wales coastal path (870 miles long). Make sure to check out the charismatic café in the main car park. Note: campervans only.
Where? Penbryn, Llandysul, Ceredigion, West Wales, SA44 6QL. 

3 Gupton Farm Campsite – link here

Next up is Pembrokeshire’s Gupton Farm which is a larger National Trust site, housing up to 50 pitches. Positioned ideally to explore the Freshwater West beach (seen in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows as the place of Dobby’s grave). Informal and family friendly, the campsite is a short walk from the popular solar powered beach shack Cafe Môr (Welsh for sea) for some award-winning grub!
Where: Gupton Farm, Castle Martin, Pembroke, Pembrokeshire, SA71 5HW.

4 The Snowdonia Glamping Pod – link here

For the more luxurious touch check out this Welsh glamping pod. Link here.
If glamping is more your style – problem. The cosy Snowdonia Glamping Pod is located on the Isle of Anglesey in North West Wales. The natural surroundings are suitably the main attraction with incredible scenery (and stargazing!) which can be enjoyed from long walks or with the provided BBQ set up which includes a fire pit. Toilets and shower facilities are available on site. Look out for the local chickens!
Where? Isle of Anglesey.
