Care-free Pembrokeshire glamping with acres of space, excellent walks and a beautiful woodland on the doorstep

It’s easy to get lost at Top of the Woods. Not literally, thank goodness – owners Soo and Jon give you a map on arrival – but in a who-cares, do-as-you-please kind of way. The atmosphere is so laid-back it’s almost horizontal – nature domes, safari lodges and pioneer camps & an exclusive campervan pitch, spread over 27 rolling acres, soothed, and charmed by the sights and sounds of myriad bird- and wildlife and the white-grey wisps of campfire smoke. In the adjoining Ffynone Wood – a vast 325 acres of forest – you might be lucky enough to spot a resident or two of the largest badger population in West Wales . You'll see rabbits, and maybe even an otter or two slipping into Afon Dulas, a peaceful stream that runs along the southern edge of the site.

Top of the Woods is part of Penrallt Farm, a quaint 18th-century farmstead with chickens scratching around outside and three pet Kunekune pigs, plus farm sheds that are home to barn owls, house martins, migrating swallows and a rare breed of bats (the farm hosts seven of the UK's 17 bat species). They have won sustainable tourism awards for the past seven years running and are a thoroughly eco-friendly and a nature haven. Its a perfect place to relax and enjoy slow living, with a variety of glamping styles to choose from – four fully furnished geodesic Nature Domes , four luxury safari lodges and nine spacious pioneer camps situated in their own wildflower meadows surrounded by nature and woodlands. It's all pretty high-spec, but the feeling and style is very definitely back to nature – stargazing and guitars around the campfire fire, gadgets, and noise not so much.

Every tent has a wood burning stove or gas stove for heating, a dining area with a fully equipped camp kitchen, a 2- ring gas stove, firepit, BBQ with all your dining equipment and cool box.  They all have proper beds with good quality linen, lantern, rugs, and cushions. The safari lodges & nature domes both have running water, the Pioneer camp meadow has two water stations, and the safaris now include their own private toilet & shower facilities

The Dutch Barn serves as a covered picnic and meeting area for the whole site (which also has regular camping), with tables, hammock garden, phone-charging points, and a stash of games for anyone to use. It's a handy place to mull over the mapped-out walking route that leads you to the enchantingly named ‘secret waterfall’. There is also freezer and a microwave, while the main courtyard area has hot showers and flushing toilets, washing-up sinks and free (if limited) wifi, the pioneer lodge and safari lodge meadows also have their own hot showers and compost toilets.

Soo and Jon offer hot farmhouse breakfasts at weekends and hosted dinners in the evenings as part of the World Food Café, or local quality pop up food option, such as woodfired pizza and vegan / vegetarian food, with a mobile fishmonger visiting weekly, so you will get the chance to try some excellent local food. There are usually any number of activities going on, from Barn cinema, weekend yoga to bushcraft sessions, storytelling, and other events –They also now offer inclusive glamping weekends (food, accommodation & experience) where you can “Find Your Wild” and have a nature adventure,  such as Wild Gin, River Trek, SUP (stand up paddleboard) Safari or SUP Adventure and Coastal Foraging

Finally Top of the Woods enjoys an undeniably great location, right in the heart of Pembrokeshire, and next to the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Pembrokeshire Coast Path and Preseli Hills. The nearby Teifi Gorge is great for Stand Up Paddleboarding, kayaking and canoeing, while other attractions in the vicinity include Cardigan Castle and the Welsh Wildlife Centre in the Teifi Marshes Nature Reserve with several excellent wild beaches that are 20 minutes away. Even with all these attractions on your doorstep, you may find you spend more time on the site than you meant to, delving into the woods in search of adventure, playing cricket in the meadows and picnicking in the sun. There's a lot to explore, and a lot of space to get lost in – why would you want to leave?
