7 Reasons Glamping in West Wales is Perfect For Eco Couples
When you’re dreaming of a romantic getaway, you want to turn up the heat of passion, but minimize the carbon footprint. Luckily, we’ve got 7 great reasons why glamping (especially here in Pembrokeshire, West Wales) is perfect for couples who care about the planet.
1. Sustainable 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 only amount 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!
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!
3. No-hassle 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.
Here are some of our local food heroes that you can try on your glamping getaway!
Hebron Vineyard, a Welsh family run, low intervention, organic vineyard. Who have won many awards for their Welsh natural wines & champagne.
Caw's Cenarth Artisan Cheese - a local multi award winning family run, cheese farm, on the other side of Boncath village to Top of the Woods campsite.
Glebelands Organic Market Garden to buy your in-season organic vegetables to cook over the open fire.
5. Wild date nights
Glamping in West Wales offers up wild alternatives to run-of-the-mill date nights. Wild swimming may not shout out romance, but did you know that cold water not only boosts the immune system, but also the libido? We know so many secluded spots nearby so it’s time to dive in and cuddle afterwards to warm up.
Why not find out the secret wild swimming spots close to the campsite.
Or what could be more romantic than stargazing?
With no light pollution, our secluded camp site in West Wales boosts the most amazing dark skies so much so we have been named no.1 campsite site for stargazers!
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!
7. Wild West Wales
Finally, it’s no exaggeration to say that West Wales is home to some of the most beautiful scenery in the UK - and beyond. The spectacular Pembrokeshire National Park and the unspoiled beaches are an adventure paradise just calling out for endless romantic walks. It’s almost as if it’s been designed as an eco-destination for lovers.
There you have it, 7 reasons why a glamping trip here in West Wales suits couples perfectly. But beware of the romance at Top of the Woods, we’ve had many engagements on-site… Who’ll be next?
