Hillfort Camping & Yurts voted number 1 by the Telegraph in 2016’s ranking of ‘Incredible campsites that will convert you to canvas’. But don’t take their word for it – See all of our reviews! There is no better place to relax and get away from the stress of urban life!
Hillfort Camping and Yurts was created by affable local land owner John, who was born and bred in the farmhouse in this quite incredible corner of Pembrokeshire. John really is the loveliest of owners, an unassuming guy who just wants people to enjoy their time here. Never fear, though; if you don’t want chat, he won’t force it upon you. And the site? Well, unassuming it definitely is not; instead it is quite simply staggering. You really are camping on top of the world, with the Pembrokeshire coastline unfurling beneath you, like a rolled out carpet.
This immense, panoramic view almost defies description. To put it into perspective, anyone who knows North Pembrokeshire knows that the Strumble Head lighthouse rises from the coastline like an imposing beacon. But, overlooking it from one of Hillfort’s craggy outcrops, Strumble looks like the tiniest, least significant dot in the landscape.
John recently changed the campsite's name from 'Hillfort Tipis' after he stopped renting out the structures and began offering yurts instead. And, while the rest of its name was inspired by the remains of an Iron Age fort on the side of the mountain, it could just as easily be called ‘camping in the clouds’, for that is about as high as it feels. We often write about a place’s sense of space in our Cool Camping recommendations, but this takes space and freedom to another level. Buzzards and kestrels fly overhead, while dolphins can be spotted (with binoculars) from your elevated vantage point. Rabbits and badgers burrow amongst the gorse. Kids clamber up to the cave in the rocks. The perfect place, then, to contemplate life and all that it has to offer.
The peace and quiet of the Pembrokeshire countryside surrounding our pitches provides the perfect setting for a relaxed and stress-free holiday.
Tents, glampers, campervans, families, couples, dogs on leads – yes. Group bookings can sometimes be accommodated please contact the site directly.
