Larkhill Tipis & Yurts, Carmarthen
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 woodland with meandering pathways, numerous wood carvings, a quartz stone circle and a laburnum avenue leading into a seven ringed labyrinth, 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.
All of the accommodation has comfortable beds and furnishings, including sheepskins and large cushions, with woodburning stoves in the yurts and the alachigh, a pot bellied stove in the lavvu and an open chimnea inside the tipi.
The campsite is powered by alternative energy which has been developed over the last twenty years and we have rare breed Boreray sheep and a variety 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.
The Mongolian Ger and Bentwood Yurt have one double bed and two singles. The Lavvu and Tipi have one double bed (but single mattresses pushed together) and two singles. The Alachigh has one double bed and four singles (which can be pushed together to make doubles).
