It is furnished with a double bed and two single futons. It also features a kitchen area with gas hob and cooking equipment. In the center is a wood-burning chiminea to keep guests warm at night.

The tipi is set on its own spacious pitch with private cooking, washing, and toilet facilities. It is not overlooked by anyone. The site is enclosed by trees and hedgerows, but still commands spectacular views of the mountains. Read More

Location + Surroundings
This vacation tipi is located on a 60-acre hill farm in the beautiful Dyfi Valley area of Wales. The farm is on a very quiet single-track road, and the campsite is off the road in its own one-acre field completely surrounded by tall hedgerows and trees. A short walk away is the site’s half-acre pond where glampers can watch the wildlife, have a barbeque, or take to the water in one of the available rowing boats. A short walk over the fields is the half-acre wildlife pond where, depending on the season, glampers can see frogs, newts, dragonflies, herons, and ducks. Nearby towns include Machynlleth, Llanbrynmair, and Dolgellau. Read More

Although the campsite is in a peaceful and sparsely populated area, there’s still plenty to do nearby. There are a great many footpaths and bridleways to explore – starting right by the campsite. In fact, the Cambrian Way, Dyfi Valley Way, and the Glyndwr’s Way National Trail all pass through the farm.This is first-class mountain biking country. The site also recommends cyclists to visit the mountain bike Mecca at Coed-y-Brenin which is a 35-minute drive away.
There are great beaches nearby at Aberdyfi and Ynyslas. If a stroll on the sand or a donkey ride is too sedate, glampers can always go surfing or even kite surfing! Of course, glampers might be perfectly content to relax in the tipi, chat around the campfire and take in the stunning views and local wildlife.
The site is nine miles from the Centre for Alternative Technology. If guests want to try their hand at clay pigeon shooting, the Dovey Valley Shooting Ground is only a few miles away, as is the field archery course of Dyfi Valley Archery Adventures. The nearest pub is the Penrhos, located two miles away, which is good for eating out, as is the unique Machinations in nearby Llanbrynmair. This is also a great place for children.
