This charming and unique glamping pod is the perfect retreat, with stunning beaches and harbours close by. A great place for those who like adventure and those who want to relax.

Studded amongst the countryside with enchanting views out to sea, this wooden glamping pod is a bolthole for couples. You’ll be hidden away from the hustle and bustle of Pembrokeshire’s market towns and within easy reach of the coastline for water sports and cliff-top walks. Based just 7.5 miles from St. David’s, you can explore by day and enjoy peaceful evenings sizzling up special suppers on your BBQ and relaxing with a glass of wine on the decked patio.

Inside is bright and inviting with underfloor heating to keep the open-plan living space cosy whether you are snuggling up on the sofa bed to watch the TV/DVD or sipping your first coffee of the day from the comfort of the double bed. Rustle up meals in the compact yet well-equipped kitchen, choosing to dine at the drop-down table or venturing outside to dine alfresco. There is a handy shower room concealed behind a mirror, and beyond the patio doors, the garden stretches into the countryside with ample grounds to explore.

Leading from the property is a track that will take you cross-country to the beach 2 miles away, or load up all the essentials into the car and explore the coast. Adrenaline seekers will appreciate the variety of water sports on offer such as kayaking and sailing at Abercastle harbour 2.5 miles away, but there are lots of historical monuments to investigate along the coast for those who prefer to keep their feet on dry land. This includes a Neolithic burial chamber on the outskirts of Abercastle. Perhaps best known for being Britain’s smallest city, St David’s is a delight to explore thanks to the cathedral, The Bishops Palace, independent shops and selection of eateries, 7.5 miles away.

  • 1 double bed
  • 1 shower room
  • Gas hob, fridge and microwave
  • Electric and underfloor heating included
  • Off-road ample parking
  • Beach 2 miles, pub and shops within walking distance
  • TV/DVD in lounge area
  • Gas BBQ
  • Sleeps an additional +2 on the sofa bed

The pod was extremely clean, comfortable and for us in the perfect spot. We were there a couple of years ago and was just as immaculate then as it was this time. I love the little gift basket that is left as a welcoming gift, nice touch. Looking forward to going again next year.

What a sweet little pod, like a long wooden igloo! It was beautifully decorated in blue and white and the bedroom "nook" with its porthole to the stars was very cosy. The view from the deck was the best we have ever seen from a self-catering cottage.

For two people this Pod is all you could want for a wonderful week's holiday. The Pod was spotless when we arrived and supplied with everything, kitchen equipment, towels linen cleaning materials. There were even some Welsh cakes and cookies. view was to die for overlooking 5 field then the coastline and sea. Well worth the money.
