Glamping with Condé Nast Traveller

There is a growing number of campsites in Wales that fall under the banners of ‘cool camping’ or ‘glamping’. We asked the digital team at Condé Nast Traveller to pick a few of their favourites.

    The good folk who run Fforest know what you want. They understand the pleasure of being warm and comfortable. The accommodation at Fforest, near the beautiful Cardiganshire coast caters for every taste, with Dutch tunnel tents wonderful futuristic-looking domes, threepis (like a tipi but three times as good, they say) and fforest campshacks for social groups. They also know that the best holidays breaks are the ones when you look back and say: “Did we really do all that?” There’s a broad range of activity packages available – from bushcraft to white water rafting.

    If you’ve ever wanted to know how nomadic tribes from northern Iran live, then this award-winning eco tourism retreat in Carmarthenshire is the perfect place to find out. There are three different types of yurts, a tipi and a lavvuu, used by northern Scandinavian tribe, the Sami. Larkhill offers an idyllic retreat in a 20-acre spot. The whole campsite runs on alternative energy, but there’s no compromising on comfort and warmth. Best travel light, as everything is pretty much laid on for you.

  • White Blossom Tipi, Anglesey

    White Blossom Tipi, Anglesey

     by Anglesey Tipi and Yurt Holidays

    Anglesey is instantly recognisable as the island off the north west coast of Wales and every square metre is crammed with colourful history and natural drama. This hideaway with two tipis and three yurts in eight acres of countryside just a mile from the picturesque east coast provides an excellent base for your exploration of the island. Every pitch offers its own tranquil space and there is a communal space too, where campers can gather around the fire pit. The island is known as the Mother of Wales because of its abundance of crops, livestock and seafood and as an added bonus you can add the delicious home-grown veg to your dinner plate.
