Camping in West Wales

toddler camping


Over the bank holiday we joined a few friends camping right on the tip of the West coast of Wales in beautiful St Davids - the UK's smallest city, really it's just a quaint and picture perfect seaside village but with a very impressive Cathedral that really takes your breath away.

Even though we knew it was going to rain during half our trip it really made no difference to us, in fact it made it more of an adventure and there is nothing better than cosying up inside your lovely dry tent while it rains outside - there is something very natural about that.

It was also lovely for Mr A to have so many friends to play with - all of different ages and at one point because of the rain they all piled into one tent and all that could be heard was laughter. He really is a very happy little camper.

I also love to cook on our little campaign stove and how everything becomes very slow such as waiting for the water to boil for morning coffee - there is something wonderful about this very relaxed way to start the day.

We enjoyed a lot of running around at the quite and rural campsite, playing Frisbee and flying planes. We also enjoyed a lovely walk around St Davids and a hearty pub meal at the Bishops which I highly recommend - I had a delicious homemade soup with rustic bread - the perfect warmer on a rainy day.

  6. I'd love to give camping a go but with the kids and a bad back i'm just not sure. You've made it sound appealing though so maybe next year we'll give it a go #countrykids

  8. I feel a bit sad to have not been camping this summer. I'm not very good with the cold but there's something so wonderful about putting the tent up and getting the camping stove going. Love the photos.

  9. That van is so cool! It looks gorgeous there too, I'm not too sure if I could handle camping in the rain though! x
