Dine in style on your camping trip at one of the top foodie campsites in the UK
Since the pandemic, camping has become a popular holiday choice, but the attraction is far more than just sleeping under the stars. Tasty alfresco food is a must and four camp sites in Wales and three on the English borders have made it into the top 25 in the whole of the UK, according to national newspaper, The Times.
For instance, in the ‘food trucks and pizza ovens' category, Fforest campsite in the village of Cilgerran, Pembrokeshire was praised for its barbecue suppers served every night. While In Bert’s Kitchen Garden in the village of Trefor, on the north coast of the Llŷn Peninsula, was recognised for its homegrown vegetables on the family farm in the 'kitchen gardens and cafés' category.
"Most of what we serve, we grow,” says Ali Paice of Bert’s Kitchen Garden, which is at the heart of Bryn Ifan, a 500-acre family farm with tent and campervan pitches and luxurious huts.
