A TIPI OR YURT HOLIDAY IN A WONDERFUL LOCATION

  

 Alachigh

 

 

 

Our family run, award winning, campsite, established in 2003, has spectacular views of the Welsh countryside andis located on the edge of woodland on a 20 acresmallholding in west Wales. We offer five different nomadic 'glamping' experiences: an Alachigh, a Mongolian Ger, a Bentwood Yurt, a Lavvu and a Native American Tipi, each of which has its own 'space', separated by mature shrubs and trees, and all connected by hand-made stepping stones.

 

Spend your evenings relaxing next to a glowing

campfire, looking at an endless sky of stars and

waking to the sound of birdsong. This is a quiet

location, well away from busy roads and not far

from both the Carmarthen Bay and the Cardigan

Bay coastlines. If you're looking for a child-friendly,

relaxed and sustainable alternative holiday, then

you need look no further – a 'glamping' holiday in

a beautiful location.

 

 

 

 

Central to all five structures is a communal log cabin

which has an old Victorian cooking range, a fine

array of cooking equipment, interesting books and

local information. The grounds are well established

and include a laburnum avenue, which is spectacular

when it flowers in June, which leads into a seven

ringed labyrinth with a totem pole at the centre,

pathways meandering through the woodland,

numerous wood carvings, a quartz stone circle,

benches to while away the hours and a woodland

park with swings and a slide for children to play in.

Other facilities include two hot showers, a flush

toilet and a tiled, very clean, compost toilet. We

have built and stitched all of the accommodation

and facilities ourselves and have done our best to

source all materials locally. We are not on the

'mains' power supply and rely on two wind

generators and solar panels for electricity

(available in the log cabin). If you're interested in

alternative energy we're more than happy to show

you how our system works.

 

 

 

The land ranges from peat bog and pastureland

to woodland and has a large variety of wildlife.

Over 60 bird species have been seen here, making

it ideal for bird watching. We have rare breed

Boreray sheep (just 300 breeding ewes in the UK),

a variety of chickens and turkeys (and a solitary

guinea fowl). Beekeeping has also become a

passion and we now have honey for sale.

When you arrive we will give you a tour of the

facilities, including guidance on the use of the

stove, and cover all health and safety issues.

We do not accept large groups and ask for no

noise after 10.00 p.m.
