Bôn is a beautiful Welsh word meaning ‘base’ or ‘root’. It is more usually used in the phrase, 'yn y bôn' which literally means, 'at heart', ‘fundamentally’ or 'at it's root'.

CROESO I / WELCOME TO BÔN CAMPING

We invite you to come and join us in our magical west Wales coastal valley, at the heart of Britain’s only coastal National Park. Our 29 acres are teeming with wildlife, meadows and trees.

We are a basic eco or wild campsite, and the ideal base for your Pembrokeshire summer adventure. A chance to reconnect with family, friends and the great Pembrokeshire outdoors.

Our Pitches

For our pioneer year we have nine spacious pitches spread across our two camping fields. Each pitch enjoys a fantastic view and a picnic table. We encourage you to have camp fires and provide wood for you to do so. What is camping without a campfire?

There is one compost toilet by the camping fields – serviced daily, and a tap for fresh drinking water.

Mongolian Yurt

Everyone who stays in the yurt, enjoys it so much, they leave with the wish to return. This is the spell cast by the yurt! The yurt comes with views across the valley, in a sun trap nestled between the shelter of the hedgerows and the woodland.

Follow the winding path through the butterfly meadow, and discover the yurt with its camp kitchen fully equipped with crockery, cutlery, running water, sink and gas stove.

Coedwig / Woodlands

We have 20 acres of wild woods for you to explore and enjoy. In the shelter of the woods you can hear a mixture of bird song, the breeze in the trees and the murmur of waves on the shore. 

The woods provide the perfect chance for you to relax and enjoy the calming effects of nature. Much of the habitat has been left undisturbed for many years and we encourage you to share any wildlife sightings in our book especially for that purpose as we build up a picture of exactly what species fill this rich ecosystem.

Low Impact Facilities

So far as possible we want to live in harmony with the wildlife that shares our life here. We see ourselves as temporary stewards of this patch of beautiful Pembrokeshire – and a key part of our habitat management plan is to secure it for wildlife and make any changes slowly, and only when we have studied what is already here.

We encourage you to use only eco products on site, and we provide these for you during your stay. We have one compost toilet – serviced daily - and a communal washing up area situated in the shed. Also in the shed are 2 hot electric showers and 2 flush toilets.

 main barn we have a chest freezer, fridge, dining area with local information about things to do and a tide timetable updated every day.

We have two kayaks for you to borrow at no extra cost but these are only available on a first come, first serve basis.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Moon and Stars

When was the last time that you were truly aware of the cycle of the moon? Here you can’t avoid it. And that’s a good thing! When the moon is at its fullest and the sound of the surf is rolling up the valley, it is somehow easy to feel in touch with the mystery of it all. And when the moon is dark, the skies are even more brightly covered with a blanket of stars.

With so little local light pollution, it is very easy on a clear night to see the milky way and start teaching your children about the constellations around the warmth of a campfire. We have two powerful telescopes for those wanting to take a closer look.

A torch is a good idea, but why not give your eyes a chance to get accustomed to the dark before you decide to switch it on!

Within a 10 min walk

We are less than a 10 minute walk from the Victoria Inn that offers food and a place to stay for grandparents who might want to come on holiday but fancy a bit more luxury. Opposite the pub is a children’s playground and tennis court. The post office and shop for basic groceries can be found at the centre of the village.

      Why Greener Camping Club Membership?                

      We are situated in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, which is a wonderfully unspoilt area due to limited development through tight planning control. As a result we are only able to operate as a GCC members only site. This means we have an obligation to ensure all guests are members of the issuing authority namely the Greener Camping Club.

      We self-limit the number of people on our site to approx. 35-40 people. This means there may be other pitches on the site empty for the week, once a larger group is in the fields or on the woodland. It doesn't mean we have extra availability.


      Booking and Availability

      We would love to welcome you to Bôn Camping for your summer adventure. The quickest way to see if we have availability - and indeed to book! - is to use the calendar below. We are always happy to take bookings over the phone or by email if that's what you would prefer.

      If you have a question about our campsite, feel free to pick up the phone and ask, we are happy to help in any way we can.

      Sea & Do

       

      If you already know Pembrokeshire then you need no convincing that this is one of the most beautiful places in Britain. With 180 miles of coast path, more than 50 beaches, island nature reserves, historic castles and seemingly endless options for messing about in the sea, we believe that whatever the weather you will find something to enjoy.

      Beaches

      We are only a four and a half minute drive from Newgale sands, one of Pembrokeshire’s most impressive blue flag beaches. A full two miles long at low tide it is a favourite haunt for surfers, walkers, sunbathers and families.

      We are in the middle of St Brides Bay famous for its beaches, havens and harbours. To the north is the ever more rugged north Pembrokeshire coast and historic St Davids. To the south lies the Dale Peninsular, the wildlife islands, magnificent Pembroke Castle, Tenby and the famous southern beaches.

       

      Brandy Brook walk

      We overlook the valley of Brandy Brook, so put on your hiking boots, pack a picnic and head down hill for a walk up stream, towards the ruins of an old mill. This is a circular route that brings you out past Roch Castle and through the village before returning back to your tent for a well earned rest.

      There are plenty of activities to suit all ages and abilities in the area. Walk the coast, gallop on a horse along Druidston beach, go coasteering with experienced instructors, or why not visit an iron aged hill fort, or any of the beautiful gardens dotted around the county. For children and adults alike, there is plenty to do and see throughout the seasons.
