Deciding what to do with 3 boisterous boys and a couple of teenage girls over the summer holidays is always an issue so a spot of stress free glamping was a good plan for a quick family break. The tipi was well kitted out with all the comforts you wouldn't get at most normal campsites unless you bring them yourself,... More

The tipis were amazing and the site was beautiful, unexpected hot shower and bathroom freebies made it feel more like glamping! The kids loved having the freedom to run around in the great outdoors, spot fish in the pond and were even able to watch a tipi being made! It felt really remote but was actually only 10 minutes from... More

This was a fabulous holiday a beautiful well decorated and comfortable Tipi. Weather was poor typical for Wales however we were under no illusion camping can be damp. Plenty of firewood and hot basic showers what more do you want from a campsite? A1 will go back. Loved the friendly staff.

This Place is a complete rip off. Wet firewood, tipis leaked, dirty toilets and Ice cold showers. The people running the show are pretending to be cool and alternative but in actual fact are just con artists. so so so expensive for what you actually get, who ever heard of camping in wet tents without dry firewood (which was dumped...

Firstly the weather in Wales is unpredictable at best. Secondly if it rains tents get wet and so does everything else that's outside there's no getting away from that I'm sure you'll all agree. Thirdly Tipis have a big hole in the top to allow smoke to escape otherwise we'd suffocate however there are two rather large poles called SMOKE... More

Tipi well furnished except for damp rotting firewood, so very very cold, showers and toilet filthy, showers not working. tipi smelt of cat wee, have stayed at other tipi sites up and down the country and this is worst I have experienced to date. not providing guests with adequate fire wood in April is an absolute no no.

We stayed for 3 nights and could not have been happier. The Tipi was clean and warm the showers were freshly decorated and clean. The location was stunning and there was plenty of firewood to keep us going. The kitchen facilities are basic but clean and servicable and the staff were open and friendly. A great holiday will definately go... More

Cat faeces in shower, tipi interior totally drenched by rain, not all showers working, no firewood left, interior of tipis dirty and smelly. At £50 for a night per person it is a total rip off. Complained about the drenched belongings and the fact that the tipis let in a deluge of rain on the saturday. The Eight of us... More

Firstly the cat poo was actually an Alder leaf which had blown in through the back door I personally investigated when this complaint was brought to our attention . The Washroom facilities are cleaned daily and include a new washing machine. Secondly a Tipi isn't a clinical structure it has a distinctive odour as does the earth. It may have... More
