General

  • Luxury glamping accommodation on a 20-acre family smallholding
  • Half an hour from beaches and wildlife-spotting boat trips
  • Off grid site with solar and wind power, plus free-range eggs for sale

Off-grid yet comfy and luxurious, rural and spectacularly scenic yet within easy reach of all sorts of attractions… Larkhill Tipis and Yurts makes an excellent base for your west Wales larks.

Accommodation here is in (yep, you guessed it) a swish collection of tipis and yurts, all crafted on site at Larkhill and placed in choice secluded spots around this 20-acre family-run smallholding. A network of stepping stone paths connects them all together; other paths meander off into four acres of woodland where free-range tiddlers can build dens, clamber about at the play area or seek out the carved characters lurking among the trees.

Such a gorgeous woodland habitat deserves to be preserved, and so the folk here have done their best to keep their place eco friendly: the whole site is off-grid and run entirely through solar and wind power. Low-impact amenities are in the central log cabin, where there’s a power supply, a small kitchen area and a communal lounge area, as well as hot showers and a compost toilet (plus a proper flushing toilet for those who prefer).

Fellow residents here include a flock of rare-breed Boreray sheep and free-range chickens and ducks; eggs are available for sale along with local honey. There’s also a stash of firewood for guests to use for campfires and barbecues (pick up all necessary edibles at the supermarkets 15 minutes’ drive away in Newcastle Emlyn).

    We stayed in an Iranian yurt. It was a fabulous experience. Very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Everything is eco friendly. The owners could not do enough for us. I would thoroughly recommend this place. You literally can just turn up with nothing but food and clothes. Beautiful location and stunning scenery.

Directions


Coming from Carmarthen on the A484, head to the village of Cwmduad (approximately 12 miles from Carmarthen), then continue up the hill and take the first turning on the left, signposted to the National Woollen Museum, and continue along this road for just over one mile.

You will see a sign for Larkhill. Turn right here, drive across a cattle grid, and the site is the first property on the left.

If there's no one around when you arrive make your way to the house and knock on the door – there will be someone nearby.

Local attractions

Wales is well known as a land full of sheep (three woolly ones to every person at last count…), so it’s hardly a surprise to find that the wool business is an important one for the local area. Celebrating it is the National Wool Museum, in a restored mill 10 minutes’ drive away; if you’re heading up there to play with the interactive displays (or buy some of those gorgeously soft blankets), the West Wales Museum of Childhood and the start point for the Teifi Valley Railway are both nearby too.

Sheep aren’t the only creatures you might spot around these parts though: Folly Farm Adventure Park and Zoo (50 minutes away) is home to all sorts of exotic beasts, and boat trips from New Quay (half an hour away) will take you to a patch of sea that’s a real fave for dolphins and porpoises. While you’re over that way, a detour to the sands of Aberporth or Llangrannog beaches is always a fine prospect.

And on top of all that… how about canoeing on the Teifi river from Llechryd (25 minutes), a visit to the ruins of Cilgerran Castle (half an hour) or pottering through the lush National Botanic Garden of Wales (40 minutes)...?

Must see

  • National Wool Museum (2.7 miles)
  • National Botanic Garden of Wales (14.3 miles)
  • Aberglasney Gardens (15.5 miles)

National Trust

  • Aberdeunant (18.0 miles)
  • Dolaucothi Gold Mines (18.8 miles)
