Beauty, birdsong and toasted marshmallows at fforest campsite in North Pembrokeshire

fforest is the dream of designers James and Sian, who left city life to follow their eco-consciences and create a place so lovely words really do struggle to do it justice. Here you’ll find friendly staff, wholesome breakfasts and flavoursome dinners often made from organic produce grown on site, wide open spaces to explore, a large firepit where you can toast marshmallows, a cedar-barrel sauna tucked into the trees and an old crofter’s cottage converted into a late-licence pub with tealight chandeliers and inglenook fireplace.

For extra comfort you can choose to stay in one of the four beautifully converted crofter’s cottages. Or, for the ultimate ‘glamping’ experience, opt for one of the the fforest domes – complete with a king-size bed, down duvet, bespoke woodburner, chairs draped with reindeer hides, as well as a deck with a fully equipped canopied kitchen, lanterns and cedar muskoka chairs.

I promise you could perch on your deck for days and never tire of the incredible views, but exploring the area is a must. You’re just minutes from the north Pembrokeshire coastline with its many family-friendly coves and the option of surf lessons. Teifi Gorge is also on the doorstep where you can go for a guided kayak. Equally, staying put on the 200-acre farm offers plenty to do. Why not have a go at archery or shelter building while your younger companions make jewellery from salvaged wood?
