Carmarthenshire wild camping with spectacular Black Mountains views

We are a small friendly campsite in the Llanelli mountains surrounded by woodlands and meadows and have a pond for you to wild swim in.

With fabulous views of the Black Mountains, Pentre Dolau Escapes is a wild camping spot right in Carmarthenshire countryside. It’s in 20 private acres, and you have the choice of setting up pitch in fields, a wildflower meadow or woodlands.

There’s plenty of space for you to set up your tent, and once you’ve settled in, take time to explore your surroundings, have picnics or perhaps walk your canine pals. You’re safe to let the kids run around too – and there are tree swings for them to play on hidden about the place.

This being wild camping, facilities are pretty minimal, covering a shower and loo, and ice-pack freezing to keep your supplies fresh. It’s an idea to pack a torch, as there is no lighting on site, but at least you can park by your pitch so there’s no need to lug heavy gear across fields.

The owners can supply logs for your campfire as well as freshly laid eggs for cooked breakfasts (both extra cost). Should you need to replenish stocks for the barbecue, fill up on essentials at the supermarkets in Cross Hands (15 minutes’ drive). Several takeaways and pubs offer an alternative for those days when you don’t feel like cooking.

For a change of pace from scenic on-site strolls to sightseeing days out, Carmarthen (20 minutes) has bags to offer, including a castle, theatre and markets, while Llanelli (25 minutes) has a long stretch of dog-friendly sand.

We host the Awakened Camping and Healing Weekends where Awakened folks can find their tribes and connect with like minded souls.

Lifelong friendships are often formed on these weekends.

We also provide activities for children so that parents can attend the workshops.

Beautiful place to take time and learn new ways to enrich your life. Nothing was too much trouble for Kathy and Dave. From the moment we arrived they were very welcoming and helpful. Thank you so much for opening up this amazing and peaceful space. Would recommend to anyone that wants to get back to nature,if only for a few days. Hope to see you all soon x

Awakened weekend

Had a fab weekend 24th-26th October2021! Friday started with a low mist falling which added perect ambience to the excitement of the weekend to follow. Met lots of lovely new like minded people. Weather was wet for the following few days, but it didnt dampen the weekend. Composting toilets were great….and there is a small kitchen prep area with hot water urn. We took a late walk in the dark up the slope alongside the fields. Fab place to explore. Would have explored more, but Saturday was packed with fab workshops and sunday was chilling and packing up wet camping gear! Amazing drive home through landscapes second to none….5 hours of joyful driving! Thank you to Kathy and Dave for working so hard to get everything ready for the weekend. I will be back…..
