The Local Area

Woodland, beaches, countryside and seaside towns on the Pembrokeshire, Camarthenshire border.

The best of Pembrokeshire & Carmarthenshire

Cowpots Camping is located right on the border between Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire so access to both counties is very easy. Weather you are planning a Tenby Boat ride, a visit to Laugharne Castle or a walk on the beach in Llansteffan we are well positioned so you wont be travelling between locations for too long.

Beaches & Coast Path

The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path is an amazing walk along the Pembrokeshire Coast line. It’s not the type of walk that you’ll complete in a day but pick a section and make a day of it and you’ll see some stunning views.

The most local beaches to us are Amroth and Pendine which are both less than 15 minutes away in the car. Amroth is a beautiful beach with easy access to the road and Pendine is a vast sand beach with lots of space

Countryside & Woodland

The Carmarthenshire countryside features many rolling hills and winding rivers. Llansteffan has a lovely beach and a castle to explore, Llaugharne is home to the Dylan Thomas boat house and has lots of nice pubs or a long walk along Pendine sands are all superb sights in Carmarthenshire.

There are also plently of National Trust properties to explore. Colby Woodland Gardens and the Stackpole Estate are both close by.

Local & Seaside Towns

Looking for some local culture? Cowpots Camping is only a short drive from some beautiful seaside towns such as Tenby, Saundersfoot and Amroth. Pack your bucket and spade and enjoy an morning on the beach followed by some tasty lunch.
