Camping at Croesgoch near St. Davids, West Wales. June 2014.

Molly Camping

With the recent sunshine I finished work early and jumped in the van to head out into wild west Wales. There was not even a threat of a ripple in terms of surf so we didn’t even take a board.

Obviously Molly and Sharon came with me. Molly loves a DimExcuses trip to wild west Wales.

We got a pitch at Llainpropert Camping at Croesgoch just outside St. Davids. Llainpropert Campsite is the birth place of Unsunghero surf company, who now have a new surf shop complete with coffee bar in St. Davids. Here is the Llainpropert Campsite website, and here is the Unsunghero website.

The campsite was our base to do some DimExcuses beach guides. Blogs will follow with beach guides to Abereiddy and Caerfai Bay. But disaster struck for our friend’s with us (Nicole, Mark, James, Mia and dogs Dobbie & Bailey), they bought a tent for the trip but on opening it they found the wrong tent but the right poles. A ruined weekend ahead was saved by Stephen from Llainpropert camping who lent them his tent! What a legend, and what a welcoming site!

Bulldog beach adventures and DimExcuses beach guide photography can’t go un-fueled so we nipped to Porthgain which is only a few miles from the campsite for some awesome fish & chips in the Shed restaurant. The Shed website can be found here. Fish & Chips done we caught the sun setting on the Porthgain village fishing port.

The campsite is not far from St. Davids, so we stopped there on our way home. Visiting the Bench Ice Cream shop we discovered they do canine ice cream! Here is Molly tucking into a caramelized bacon ice cream complete with wafer.

Here is the website for the Bench Ice Cream shop.  Molly got a quick dip in the ford in St. Davids and then we were heading home.

A great weekend, a great place and a great campsite. A good base for your wild west Wales adventures, DimExcuses.
