Shell loves all things travel and being outdoors and is a girl who loves nature and provides comfortable camping. Shell started the Camping with Style blog after a serious snowboarding accident left her with a broken back. Despite this, she has used the outdoors and the healing power of nature to help her recover and continues to spend time outdoors whenever she can.
From open water swimming, snowboarding and kayaking to mountain walks and meditation, Shell shares her travels and micro-adventures here on the blog, and in the various publications she has written for, Shell is interested in particularly to the promotion of well-being and the many benefits of natural therapy. We’ve rounded up the best places to go camping and glamping… assuming the Great British Summer gets the green light, that is.
The spectacular cliff-top location is a big selling point for this family campsite on the south of the Gower Peninsula. It is located on the Wales coast and a short walk from the spectacular Three Cliffs Bay. You can choose between pitches with sea view or countryside view (cheaper) for tents, caravans or motorhomes. There are also bell tents with sea views and indoor yurts (both can sleep five people). The toilet block is particularly impressive, with hydromassage showers, LED lighting and underfloor heating… Even the dog washing areas have hot water. The shop is also well stocked, with local bread, meat, beer and wine; and customers can order baskets and rent picnic tables and fire pits. The camp was started in 1948 at North Hill Farm, which dates back five generations and is still run by the Beynon family.
“Ecological luxury” is the atmosphere of this place on a 27-hectare estate. Campers can pitch their tents in a four-acre wildflower meadow, while glampers can choose from game drives, nature domes, or pioneer camps; there is also a pitch for a caravan. The corral is the social hub, with a large dutch barn, fire pit, and wet showers. Breakfast is served in the barn on the weekends, as well as a stew on Fridays and a barbecue on Saturdays. During the summer holidays there are food stalls and the fish market takes place every Wednesday. Campers can help feed the site’s three kunekuna pigs, hike to a secret waterfall in the woods for a swim, and take yoga classes in the barn. The owners also organize weekend glamping activities several times a year, from “wild gin” hunting to canoe trips and walking safaris.

Candleston is a wooded area on the edge of the Merthyr Mawr Warren National Nature Reserve, home to the tallest sand dune in Wales. The 15-acre site features 10 bell tents, plus two camp kitchens with wood-fired pizza ovens, a barn that houses showers, toilets, a dining area and a central stove. There are regular acoustic music sessions, movie nights, pop-up food nights and a bar serving Welsh beer and cider. Prices include a simple breakfast (homemade granola, homemade eggs). The forest has many trails and is bordered by the River Ogwr which runs through the dunes to the sea – around 20 minutes walk. The nature reserve is home to rare butterflies, reptiles and orchids.
Over the past 11 years, the owners of Treberfedd Farm have transitioned to organic farming, a process that included planting over 15,000 trees, restoring wildflower meadows and managing hedgerows and field borders to provide habitats for wildlife. They have also branched out into holiday accommodation. There are now eight pitches in an elevated paddock with wonderful views over the green, gentle Aeron Valley. Elsewhere on the farm are four holiday homes, an Edwardian horse-drawn caravan and two octagonal eco-cabins, one with a wood-burning hot tub. There is a farm path to follow, a pizzeria and table tennis shop, a children’s play area and a play barn. You can buy your own beef and lamb from the farm at reception. The beaches of Cardigan Bay are a 20 minute drive away.
In summer wooden caravan £75 per night for 2, cabins for 2 adults and 2 children from £900 per week in July, treberfedd.co.uk

Well-maintained facilities include a boutique, indoor kitchen and dining areas and a games/TV room.
Of The Best Coastal Campsites Around Britain
Greenhillock, a car-free five-acre site with just 25 pitches and a few bell tents, is a family favorite, with plenty of space (though there’s an adults-only area too). There are nature trails through wild grasses, woods, a pond (great for bug watching, with basic science equipment available), a den building area, and ‘art houses’. Bonfires are allowed and everything is very eco-friendly, with compost toilets and solar-powered showers. Just outside the village of Kirkbuddo, it’s a good base for exploring this lovely corner of eastern Scotland, with excellent walking and cycling nearby and the Cairngorms National Park less than of one hour. The city of Dundee and the medieval port town of Arbroath, essential for fresh seafood, are a short drive south.

The only campsite in the 300 square mile Galloway Forest Park, Glentrool offers a peaceful and scenic base from which to explore South West Scotland.
