‘Van life’ is now big news in the UK. Naturally, more people are looking for welcoming campervan sites in Pembrokeshire, especially around the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
Everything about this area of South Wales makes it a huge magnet for people who have embraced campervans and motorhomes for both holidays and long-term living. Not only is Pembrokeshire the only UK national park largely based on a dramatic coastline, but it is also famous for its watersports and glorious beaches. In other words, it has the scenery and activities that go ‘hand in hand’ with van life.
Is it hard to find campervan sites in Pembrokeshire?
Not only is Pembrokeshire a highly attractive place to site a campervan or motorhome, but competition for the best spots is also growing due to the bludgeoning interest in life on the open road.
According to the leisure vehicle trade organisation the NCC, there are now around 225,000 campervans and motorhomes on UK roads, part of one million leisure caravans in use here.
Also, post-pandemic, more people are viewing campervans and motorhomes as being a great option for adventures, but not just for annual holidays and short breaks. Growing numbers of adults – of all ages – are spending weeks if not months living in their vans to make the most of the open road and stunning landscapes like the Pembrokeshire coast.
In fact, according to Van Life Matters magazine, “Britons aged between 25 and 34 are showing as much interest in campervans as those aged 45 to 54.”
The best campervan sites Pembrokeshire-wide
Whether you are young, carefree and 25, or looking for outdoor adventures in your retirement, that still leaves the question of which campsites in this beautiful Welsh county welcome this type of leisure vehicle. It’s worth noting that locating your campervan in unauthorised places – and wild camping in Pembrokeshire in general – is strictly forbidden to protect the area’s natural beauty and ecosystem.
So, where should you head for the best Pembrokeshire campervan stop-off point? One of the best places to base yourself to see all that Pembrokeshire has to offer is St Davids. The UK’s smallest city offers all the amenities you need but also the sort of tourist attractions and unspoilt spaces you want.
