    Absolutely fantastic place for some self healing even in the Welsh Rain. Going back next year. Get in touch with nature, the energy of the forest and get to see some of the gorgeous Welsh countryside.

    The Forest Tipi is located in a private wooded area which provides a natural shield from much of the wind and rain. It's a very pretty private location. The highlight of the stay was the secluded location, the silence only broken by the odd sheep....More
