Some may think that the camping season is over as soon as we hit September and school starts. However, we think there is plenty of reasons to still dust of the camping gear for autumn.
Late mornings can be enjoyed by staying in bed just a little long since your tent won’t turn into a sauna as soon as the sun rises.
Crisp morning air
With a slight chill to the air that fresh morning coffee tastes special as you emerge from your tent and enjoy the view bathed in golden autumn light.
The sea in the UK is at its warmest around autumn at a temperature of around 17ºC here in Pembrokeshire. Meaning that a whole host of activities are great fun this time of year. Coasteering with Celtic Quest Coasteering at Abereiddi. Surfing or paddle boarding with Board Games from Newgale beach or Fishguard. Or kayaking around Fishguard harbour with Kayak-king.
At the end of August through to November the Atlantic Grey Seals are pupping all over the UK. Pembrokeshire in particular has a thriving population. Seals can be spotted on secluded beaches from the cliff tops, while out on activities like boat tours, kayaking or coasteering. The seal pups lay-up on the shore turning from white balls of fluff waiting for their food until they get their sleek grey fur.
The Sea trust provide some information regarding seals here.
The peak season has just passed Pembrokeshire by in a whirlwind, meaning that there is plenty of space in the car parks at you favourite spot even after your lie-in. Campsites are also quieter and often have reduced rates.
Snuggle up under your favourite blanket while watching the camp fire with a steamy hot chocolate and toasted marshmallows.
Cooler days are great for exploring the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Walking is a fantastic way to see the area. From the stunning cliffs, beaches and sea views to the valleys and moor land over the Preseli Hills. The coastal buses still run through the winter allowing you to walk sections of the coast path.
The Pembrokeshire coastal bus services can be found here.
What is more delightful after a dip in the sea or a walk on the beach than heading to a lovely Pembrokeshire pub with a fire where you can enjoy a drink or some homely, warming grub.
We are still open until through to the end of October for campers. Beyond that, we have a hard standing pitch for people wishing to visit Pembrokeshire later in the year. Why not contact us to book your autumn camping in Pembrokeshire.
