Description of Larkhill Tipis & Yurts
Established in 2003, Larkhill Tipis and Yurts is an award winning 20 acre eco-friendly smallholding located in beautiful countryside near Cardigan Bay, West Wales, with fantastic views over the Teifi Valley.
Set on the edge of four acres of mature woodland with meandering pathways, dotted with numerous wood carvings, are five different nomadic structures – a Mongolian ger, a Bentwood yurt, an Alachigh (a stunning dome-like structure), an 18′ Native American Indian Tipi and a Lavvu, used by the Sami tribe in Scandanavia.
Each tent has its own ‘space’ with hand-made stepping stones weaving in and around the campsite.
All of the glamping accommodation has comfortable beds and furnishings, including sheepskins and large cushions, with woodburning stoves, LED lighting and lanterns in all.
Outside of each are picnic benches and a campfire area.
The campsite is powered by alternative energy which has been developed over the last twenty five years and we have rare breed Boreray sheep and a variety of chickens and turkeys.
Facilities include a well equipped communal log cabin, a play area in a woodland setting for children, two hot showers and toilets.
All cooking equipment and camping paraphernalia is supplied.
We are always on hand to give assistance and offer a friendly service.
This is a quiet location, ideal for families and couples looking for a relaxed, alternative and sustainable glamping holiday.
