Holiday Park Moves into Glamping

Pembrokeshire holiday parks glampingThe owners of three holiday parks in Pembrokeshire, the Pendleton family, have decided to branch out from their traditional static caravan accommodation with a new £1 million holiday experience, featuring two styles of safari tent (one is double storey), hideaway log pods and grand lodges.

Wales’s Tourism, Culture and Sports Minister, Lord Elis-Thomas, officially launched the new accommodation at Celtic Holiday Parks, as part of a week-long programme championing Wales’s tourism industry.

The safari tents and lodges all have electricity, running water, and a private decking area with hot tub. The pods still require the usual camping gear – they have just got the luxury of single and double beds so guests can leave their tents at home.

Director, Huw Pendleton, said: “It is a very exciting time for us and we have been looking forward to welcoming our first guests to the new Hampton lodges. Our safari tents have proved extremely popular this year with bookings outperforming our forecasts. Our aim with Celtic Escapes is to provide sensational holidays in a low-density development with the best views and space to relax.’’
