Unique Nomadic Dome at Eco-Friendly Property near Cardiff, Wales
This luxury yurt can accommodate six guests. Called an Alachigh, this type of yurt is traditionally used by the Shahsavan, a nomadic tribe from northern Iran. It has a dome shape, but is often compared as a cross between a yurt and a tipi. This luxury yurt was made from steam-bent oak and covered in a 12 oz. canvas fabric with marquee lining. It also has oak flooring, too.
There are four single beds and a double bed, all of which sit on pine bed frames with a type of drapes in between each bed for added privacy. All of the beds have covered foam mattresses and pillows.
In the center of the yurt, there is a cast-iron wood-burning stove with a fitted fireguard. Around the stove, there are sitting areas with sheepskins, rugs, and cushions, as well as a sofa bed, three bedside tables, a shelving unit, a double burner calor gas stove, and a large chest to be used as a coffee table and filled with extra blankets. All necessary cookware and firewood is provided.
Outside, there is a fire pit, complete with a trivet for cooking over open flames, a picnic table, and benches.
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.
