While weâ€™re taking a look at camping this week itâ€™s not all about back to basics. This continues round ups focusing on the more comfortable option of Glamping.
Fforest is more like a hotel than a campsite. With a range of different camping options and even stone croglofts for those who like a little more between them and the elements it has everything you could possibly want. The camping options are a nomad tent which has two bedrooms, geodesic domes (pictured above), threepi and bell tents. Each option has a covered outdoor kitchen and eating area and are all raised on a wooden platform. The dome would be my choice and boasts a king size bed as well as two single futon mattresses. The dome is designed for year round living and the camp kitchen and eating area are suitable for all areas. They offer a range of land, sea and river activities as well as activities for older children. The site is located in Cardigan and provides easy access to the surrounding coast.
Cae Wennol Yurts in North Wales comes recommended to us by reader and friend of the site @SewBertie who enjoyed a stay with her then one year old. A small site with only two yurts sleeping 2-4 and 6 respectively. There is a rustic kitchen with stove, BBQ, oven and hob and covered eating area. The toilets are composting and the showers and on site water are all from their own natural spring (very Timotei advert). With plenty to do in the surrounding area and the owners are on hand to point you in the right direction.
Yurt Holiday Wales is located 700m above sea level in the Cambrian Mountains. For the stunning location and views alone it is worth consideration. With Buzzards and Red Kites flying overhead and the mountains laid out before you this is the kind of place my Dad would have taken us as children. Accommodation is in either a yurt or bell tent both of which have access to solar powered showers and composting toilets. All water on site is from their natural spring. This is the option for those of you who love to be isolated and are just itching to get out walking in the mountains.
Trellyn Woodland Campsite in Pembrokeshire offers traditional camping pitches as well as yurts and tipis. The campsite is situated close to gorgeous beaches on the St Davids Peninsula which enjoys Cornish style weather. The site offer bushcraft courses and there is lots to do in the surrounding area including Folly Farm. If you want to get out on the water there are dolphin and seal watching trips or you could take a boat to Ramsey to see the Puffins.
