Penhein’s alachigh tents have been custom-made in the UK. Originating from Iran and still used by the nomadic Shahsavan tribe today, they have high, domed ceilings and plenty of space inside.
Each tent has been individually decorated. The alachighs are warm, dry, and very comfortable, with proper beds and lovely bedlinen, a wood-burning stove and a skylight for gazing at the stars from your pillow.
Sleeps 4 people + 1 extra (or 2 small children).
- Shared Showers
The custom-built communal tent is home to comfy chairs and tables, bean bags, board games and cards for all glamping guests to use. Inside, a wood-burning stove keeps things cosy, whilst outside a fire pit is perfectly placed to take in the surrounding landscape.
Great for groups, guests who have booked exclusive hire of the glampsite can decorate the communal tent for parties.
In addition to the communal tent, Penhein has luxurious shared washroom facilities, with monsoon showers, basins, a roll-top bath and underfloor heating. There’s also a drying room for hanging damp outdoor gear at the end of a rainy day.
A ‘cheat’s kitchen’ serves as back-up to the wood-burning stove and fire pit in each tent. Here you’ll find a couple of hobs and a microwave.
Penhein Glamping is located in the heart of south Wales on private farmland, so of course guests also have shared access to the surrounding fields, meadows, and woodlands.
