Mid Wales Tipis
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Was the first time that I have camped so didnt know what to expect would I have been converted! The hosts were so friendly and helpful suggesting local walks and places to see. The yurt was spacious and comfortably decorated. The bed was really comfy and it got really warm when we used the
chiminea. It was nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life such a relaxing weekend break!

Just home after an emense three night experience, an absolutely beautiful place that captors all of the fun and mystical enchantment of living in the great outdoors. We, a family of five, 10 mth-9yrs stayed in the yurt,never once heard ' I'm bored' and our apprehension about taking the youngest was soon doused on arrival as the campsite was very well equipped with everything there to make your stay as comfortable and as pleasurable as possible. The toilet feels a bit strange to start of with ESP for the male side ( u will see what I mean when u get there ;) ) , the shower was nice and refreshing as well. The scenery is just stunning and felt completely safe in our surroundings. The night time is the stuff dreams are made of, a nice blazing camp fire, marshmallows a hot choc for the kids and a cheeky vino for the grown ups lots of fun stories and laughter under a magical blanket of stars. Fallen in love with the place, we will be back, thank you Peter and Mary

Want to highly recommend Mid Wales Tipis, we stayed in the yurt which was stunning, cosy and immaculate inside. Everything you could possibly want is to hand. We have stayed in a yurt before and had to bring everything but the kitchen sink with us but the owners have provided so much to make your stay hassle free. There is a picnic bench next to the yurt and a brilliant outdoor kitchen which even inspired my hubby to help out with cooking and washing up as it was such a fantastic experience! There is no parking next to the yurt so you have to walk up a track to reach it ,but your belongings are transported up by Pete who was ever so helpful .If you are looking for a quiet place to get away from it all then this is the place for you!!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review - we really appreciate it. We've worked hard to provide everything necessary for a hassle-free break so its great to hear this feedback. We also spent a long time looking at different yurts before acquiring the Mongolian one you stayed in - we think its stunning too!

The two of us are just back from a lovely couple of days experience in the Yurt during which we did little more than read, sunbathe, eat, drink, sleep, and have a play in the boats on the lake :)

The weather was so good that we hardly used the Yurt itself apart from sleeping, but it is incredibly spacious and comfortable, and has everything you could possibly need.. Cooking over the firepit was great fun, and the kitchen area and shower/toilet werer more than adequate for our needs.

Pete & Mary were great hosts, and couldn't have done more to help us and give us whatever information we wanted.

Our only regret was that we didn't take the opportunity to explore the area more by foot. There are footpaths and opportunities all around but a combination an injury and general lethargy caused by the sunshine, made the deck chair (bring your own) more appealing.

I would highly recommend this holiday to anyone wanting (at least) a couple of relaxing days away from it all in beautiful countryside.

We'll be back !

Just got back from a lovely weekend at Mid Wales Tipis and had a fantastic time. The tipi is set in a beautiful location surrounded by fields and lovely scenery. It is fully kitted out with everything that you will need for your time away. Pete and Mary have truly thought of everything to make your experience perfect. Pete met us when we arrived and was so helpful, informative and catered for all of our needs, even making sure that we were topped up with firewood and all the essentials throughout our stay. Even though the site is set away from the 'real' world, it is easy to access local amenities by car. The site also has a small pond and a rowing boat to use which is great fun. I would truly recommend staying here either in the Tipi or the Yurt (which although isn't fully furnished yet still looks great). A great time can be had by all age groups!! Will definitely be returning in the future!

This was a wonderful experience. Location is picture book perfect and the only sounds you will hear is that of nature and the harmony it brings. Located near to the coast (short car journey) recommend south of estuary with the dunes. Or scenic walks beginning outside of the Tipi. The tipi has most of what you will require to make your stay comfortable and memorable. The only thing you can't guarantee is the warm weather! We experienced a mixed bag of rain and sunshine. ( May 27-29, 2013). However, regardless of the conditions do get a roaring fire going in the outside hearth, cook some food, and drink wine late into the night. Timeless! Pete and Mary are congenial hosts - friendly, informative and a joy to meet! Mid Wales Tipis are definitely recommended.

Was met by the friendly Pete, who was really informative. We enjoyed waking up to the sounds of the birds and being able to enjoy the surrounding area. The tipi was fantastic with everything you needed included, it was really cozy and comfortable. An excellent time had by all.
