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.

  1. We have never been to St David's and do need to go somewhere for camping. Looks a nice relaxing break.

  2. What a successful camping trip and it sounds like you all had a great time with friends - not letting the weather get in the way of exploring some beautiful countryside too. Thanks for linking up and sharing with Country Kids.

  3. It sounds and looks like you had a great time!! Lovely photos x

  4. Oh wow, I live about an hour from St David's, it is beautiful there. You make camping sound fun! #CountryKids

  5. 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

  6. looks like you had a great time! I love camping - and waiting for the stove in the morning is nice - reminder to slow down xx

  7. 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.

  8. 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

  9. I've never heard of St Davids but i like the idea of visiting the UK's smallest city - it looks so pretty!

  10. I have such a special place in my heart for seaside places!

  11. Looks like such a great family camping trip! And right by a cathedral, how nice and weird for this American :)
