About Glasfryn Escapes

Escape - Noun (Forget)

'Something that helps you forget about your usual life or problems'

We, the Chilton family (Gill, Nick, Gareth & Rhianna) run Glasfryn Escapes. We are a small holding with attached garden centre. Anyway, we have expanded our previously tiny camping field into a small natural camp site so that we can share our idyllic, quiet and unique location in Pembrokeshire with a small number of people at a time. This helps ensure that you’re able to ‘escape’ and a Pembrokeshire experience that is the most fulfilling possible. We also provide some home comforts in the process such as flushing toilets and hot showers (to wash your wonderfully sea salty hair).

Activities in Pembrokeshire

With quick access to the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park (you can see it from our site!) you can head off to enjoy a plethora of exciting and thrilling activities and experiences like coasteering, kayaking, surfing, but maybe also the other side; Pembrokeshire can cater for all. You could take a more relaxed approach, wandering to hidden coves and natural tranquil scenes all over the county. Why not head over to the blog for some of suggestions on our favourite activities.

So that your camping experience is the most enjoyable and memorable campfires and barbecues are a must. While staying with us you will have the use of our up-cycled firepits/BBQ troughs so that you can take pleasure in cooking outside or maybe simply toasting some marshmallows on a fire under a blanket of stars. Why not check out our blog post on campfires to help you get them started.

Sunset BBQ Family

So that we can operate within Pembrokeshire, we belong to the Greener Camping Club (a bit like the Caravan & Camping Club, but cooler!) all guests to our site need to be members.  The organisation was established by a small group of like-minded people, themselves campsite owners, with a shared passion for sustainable, low impact camping holidays. Running costs are also kept as low as possible with surplus funds used for projects such as our carbon offset scheme. 

As part of the Greener Camping Group we are helping to sustain a greener, eco friendly and more natural setting for campers and also wanting to preserve this wonderful environment around us not only in Pembrokeshire but further afield. The group was established by a small group of like-minded people, with a shared passion for sustainable, low impact camping holidays.

In future we hope to encourage even more sustainable energy solutions such as solar powered electricity and wildlife habitat onto our site through a small woodland, willow patch, sown meadow, bee hives …

Customer Feedback

We enjoyed a peaceful stay here in August. The site and facilities were spotlessly kept, with a quirky but effective use of a shipping container for the washing and utility rooms. The views down to Fishguard were enhanced by the high vantage point of the site but this did mean you needed to be prepared for the whims of the weather! Remember to visit the garden centre during your stay.
