Kicking off a week-long tour of Pembrokeshire, camping holiday veterans David and Carolynn, Moony and Val, and touring newbies Callum and Tash head to Pencarnan Farm Camping & Caravan Park on the west coast of Wales. Making the most of the campsite’s enviable coastal location, they take the plunge with some cold-water swimming at Portshele beach, visit the UK’s tiniest city, St David’s and tour Ramsey Island by boat before trying their best to hang ten as they surf off White Sands beach. But will this campsite earn a 5-star rating from these choosy campers?
> Tuesday Ocober 5, 5.30pm
For their second campsite of the week our intrepid campers head off-grid visiting eco-friendly Kite View Farm near Haverfordwest. This wild camping location provides a break from their mod cons as the campers learn bush craft skills in the magical woodland and are wined and dined with a foraged forest feast. Following a night under the tree canopy, the campers head out to explore the local area meeting some of the unusual inhabitants of Picton Castle before making a splash at an aquatic obstacle course. Will this campsite’s call of nature be enough to win it this week’s perfect pitch?
> Wednesday, October 6, 5.30pm
Mid-way through their tour of Pembrokeshire’s premier pitches, camping connoisseurs Callum and Tash, Moony and Val, and Carolynn and David visit Folly Farm campsite that sits alongside its popular zoo and adventure park. Will the experience of feeding penguins, giraffes and lions win the site a 5-star rating? Perhaps a scenic tour of nearby Tenby or an adrenaline-filled tree top adventure at the Heatherton World of Activities will see this location declared this week’s perfect pitch?

In the green surroundings of Coedfryn Farm near Newport, campers Moony and Val, Callum and Tash, and Carolynn and David get to know the campsite’s resident alpacas before exploring the Presili Hills on horseback, taking part in a pagan ceremony at Castell Henllys and taking to the water as they float down the River Teifi by canoe. As they continue their search for Pembrokeshire’s perfect pitch, will this campsite impress the group enough to win a 5-star rating?

For their final stop on their Pembrokeshire tour the campers pitch up at Fishguard Bay Resort, where hosts Mark and Bernard have planned the perfect wind down for the group with hot tub, bubbles, pampering and a barbecue east.

Having visited five of this Welsh holiday region’s best campsites, Carolynn and David, Moony and Val, and Callum and Tash now have a difficult decision to make, as they announce this week’s perfect pitch winner.
