We had a great time in the lavvu. My teenagers loved it as Well, busy with the food stove instead of WiFi. The woodstove heated the lavvu quickly, and cooking on it felt like an adventure. The park is really Well kept. We loved the showers as Well, they smelt so nicely, and the view on the trees is very...

Our family of 4 stayed in the Lavuu & our friends (family of 3) stayed in the Tipi for 2 nights & we all had an amazing time. The location was off the beaten track, so fabulous to get away for some much needed chill time. The accomodation was clean, spacious & very warm with the log burners going (even...

Had a two night stay with the kids in the lavvu which was very nice and spacious, it had a wood fired stove which was great for warming the place up at night, and a gas stove also. There was also the ability to cook outside over an open fire. There was a main cabin for washing up and was...

We have been to Larkhill seven times which must mean we like it, even our teenage children want to come back. Fran and Tony are excellent hosts and have a real can do attitude. We love how Larkhill fundamentally stays the same but is always evolving a little. Whether it is the wood growing, the new totem pole being carved...

I went to Larkhill last year and stayed in the Tipi for a weekend with friends. It's out of the way so you'll need a car to get around, but the campsite itself is wonderful. Completely eco friendly with solar showers, compost and flushing loos and recycling facilities. It's lovely to explore too with surrounding woodland, fairy lights in the...

Lovely Ger, cosy and well equipped. Excellent facilities on site. A real opportunity to relax, think, enjoy company and enhance life generally! Owners are very helpful. Great places to eat in area. No light pollution and just the sounds of the wind and wildlife to send you to sleep.

The website and leaflet make this place look amazing however, the reality is that the yurks are now looking old with green over the outside of them and everything looks a bit run down. The shower block looks like it is out of a 60's campsite. I was expecting camping with a bit of luxury The first night stay we...

Fran W, Owner at Larkhill Tipis and Yurts, responded to this review

Hello Rebecca - we're so sorry you were disappointed with your stay. The canvases on the yurts are either replaced each spring or scrubbed and rewaterproofed - as they are surrounded by trees they invariably become a little green during the course of the year. By October - the end of the season - things can start to look a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Award winning campsite set in four acres of woodland with stunning views of the Teifi Valley. We have five different types of glamping accommodation from all different parts of the world - an Alachigh, a Mongolian Ger, a Bentwood Yurt, a Lavvu and a Native American Tipi. All are in their own 'space', are connected by handmade stepping stones and all have wood-burners and outdoor camp-fire areas. There is a log cabin providing all you could possibly need for your stay, woodland walks, a children's play area and farm animals. Established in 2003 with the proprietors always on hand to help in any way. Particularly suitable for families and couples. ... more   less

“We keep returning to the Mongolian Ger which is super warm and cozy, even in winter. The wood burner will make sure of that. We'd like to try the tipi next time we go as a couple and the alachigh next time we bring friends :) ”
