Charming Scandinavian Tipi Rental at Eco-Friendly Property near Cardiff, Wales

Tipi in Carmarthen, Wales

4 guests

This charming tipi rental is located at an eco-friendly property near Cardiff, Wales, and can accommodate four guests. Called a lavvu, this structure resembles a Northern American tipi—differing in the size of the door, the absence of smoke flaps, and the roof’s shape—and originates from the Sami people of northern Scandinavia.

There is a wood-burning stove in the center of the accommodation and has a fluted cowl and flue pipe so the smoke can leave from the top of the luxury rental. This stove can even be used for cooking and boiling water in the kettle. The stove also has a fireguard for safety purposes.

In addition, there is a double bed and two single beds, all of which come with mattresses, pillows, colorful throws, and large cushions. In addition, there is a chest filled with more blankets, a low table, and a wooden chest with cooking equipment in the tipi. The floor of the accommodation is made of dry gravel and covered with matting and sheepskins.

At this glamping property, there is a log cabin that serves as a shared kitchen space and features a full-size calor gas stove and oven; a cast-iron Victorian stove and oven; a low-energy power supply for charging cell phones and other small electronic devices; a sink; a dining room table; a variety of seating; and a library with books for all guests to read.

All necessary cookware is provided, however, there are no refrigerators, since the property is off-the-grid. The hosts do give all guests a cooler and replenish the ice packs daily. There is a fire pit where guests can also cook meals over an open flame, and a basket of firewood a day is provided. Additional firewood can be purchased for £3 per basket. Barbecues are also available.

The bathroom facilities include two showers with hot water, a composting toilet, and a normal toilet. In addition, the hosts provide all guests with eco-friendly shampoo, conditioner, soap, and laundry supplies.

This family-friendly property is situated on 20 acres of land, surrounded by the Welsh countryside and along the edge of a forest, both of which provides the perfect natural playground for glampers.

Cardigan Bay is only a short drive from the glamping site and gives guests access to beach and water activities—keep eyes peeled for dolphins, seals, and porpoises! Interested glampers can even do a boat trip from Newquay to get a closer look at the local sea animals. Aside from the bay, canoeing along the Teifi River through the Cilgerran Gorge is another fun way to see the area’s fauna, including otters and kingfishers.

Other activities in this part of Wales include horseback riding, fishing, go-karting, and visiting visiting an Iron Age settlement, the Oakwood Theme Park, the National Woollen Museum, or the Centre for Alternative Technology.

Guests also have the option of receiving a healing or massage treatment, either on-site or at the nearby Malindi Centre, for an additional fee. Please inquire with the hosts for more information and pricing.
