Updated: Mar 8, 2023

Top of the Woods, glamping campsite in Pembrokeshire Wales, is the perfect base for a romantic getaway, it may not have the traditional trappings of a romantic weekend, but look again…


No hot tubs, but we have wild swimming in a mythical woodland waterfall.

No romantic music echoing across the campsite, but morning and evening birdsong.

No table clothes, bunches of roses and candles, but we have wildflower meadows, stargazing, campfires, and food cooked over an open fire.


If your idea of romance getaway is to be together in a natural space having quality time together, new adventures and minimimising your carbon footprint - then a long weekend away glamping could be perfect for you both!


Here are 7 great reasons why glamping (especially at Top of the Woods campsite in Pembrokeshire, West Wales:-) is perfect for couples who care about the planet and want to turn up the heat of passion!

1. Sustainable UK staycation

Choosing a UK mini break rather than a flight is an easy eco swap. Let’s take a London couple. They could fly to Rome from Heathrow and rack up 1.1 tonnes* of CO2 or choose to visit us in West Wales by car


That would amount with a car to 0.09 tonnes** CO2 - a whopping 92% saving in carbon emissions - while also avoiding airport travel stress. Win-win-win.


Even better if you have an electric car or an electric hybrid as Top of the Woods will have an electric car charging point available for our guests this summer (2023)!



2. Take time out for fun

In our always-on busy lives, it’s more important than ever for couples to escape from it all and remember how to have fun together. Switch alarm clocks, scrolling and the daily grind for waking to birdsong, taking in stunning views of Pembrokeshire National Park with your morning brew, and snuggling together under blankets by the campfire. Bliss!


No agenda only fun :-)

3. No-hassle eco luxury glamping

Glamping gives couples all the outdoor experience without the need to invest in the whole camping kit and caboodle. And if you’re in a new relationship, you may want to test things out first (just saying ;)) Eco luxury glamping is the no-hassle way to get out into nature while enjoying your home comforts.


At Top of the Woods we have created a special place for our guests to stay in a sustainable way. For example, we have made a lot of our own glamping furniture onsite, with local crafts people and sustainable woods from local woodlands. We even plant a tree for every guest that books with us and much more...

4. Campfire dinner for two

What can I say, food just tastes better when it’s cooked on the campfire and it’s fun to cook together too! Also, being on holiday is the perfect chance to try the best local food and support local family businesses.

In Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion there are some seriously passionate and award-winning food providers, from local high welfare family butchers to artisan cheese makers and craft ale makers. There is even Welsh-made natural organic champagne made here in Pembrokeshire, with an option to do a tour of the vineyard, a great day out for wine loving couples!


There is no excuse to not get your cook on, hear the crackle of the fire, open a bottle, and get your glow on.

6. Outdoor adventures to bring you closer

A glamping break reminds us that experiences count more than cluttering our lives with stuff. Get even closer as a couple on a sea SUP adventure to a remote lagoon, take it slow on a winding river trek, or head off the beaten track on a wild coastal foraging trip.


Immerse yourself in nature, learn something new, and have an unforgettable time on our Find Your Wild holidays and discover the couple adventures you can share in stunning Pembrokeshire!
