Ceri Safari Lodge, Cardigan.
Ceri Safari Lodge is one of three impeccable glamping canvas lodges at Felin Geri - a unique and beautiful place near Newcastle Emlyn, just south of Cardigan. Nestled in a small woodland valley it was once the home of a thriving 17th Century water mill which although no longer operating, is still here. Now, with its pretty river, meadows and cafe-bar it's the perfect place for family holidays - especially with its private use hot tub!
This Lodge sits in its own paddock, surrounded by meadow and mature trees, and just in the corner is a track down to the shallow river that meander past the site - perfect for summer splashing about and fun. Ceri Safari is also the nearest to the supply store where you can top up on logs, refreeze cool-box blocks, buy provisions, and have the use of a fridge-freezer. Local produce can also be ordered for you from independent local suppliers. Just a little further is the cafe-bar serving great coffee, alcohol and light meals, and the nearby wooden fort is a real treat for children to play in.
One of the things we love about these safari lodges is their quality and size - the generous proportions and furnishings providing a substantial 'home from home' feeling. There's an open plan area with a kitchen and log-fuelled cooking range, proper dining table and chairs for family meals together, a sumptuous Chesterfield sofa and huge bean bags. It's all rather lush and comfortable.
The lodge has two bedrooms, one master with a king size bed and one with twin, single beds. The Scottish wood cabin in between the dining area and master bedroom also houses a cosy double bed. Doorways from the bedrooms lead to a small hall and two separate cabins with a hot shower and flushing loo - you don't have to leave the tent to use them. The interior measures 55 sq metres in total! Out front is your fantastic deck with gorgeous dining furniture and amazing views of the woodland valley and your own hot tub (seats 3 - 4) for some serious relaxing! (additional fees apply please call to reserve, £70 per 3 night booking, £80 per 4 night booking, £110 per week).
The use of hotel quality bedding, mattresses and furnishings has created a luxurious glamping experience - everything about these tents oozes quality. The old Mill and Bakery are under restoration so come back next year and see how it's all developed.
Cardigan Bay beaches and coastal towns are less than 30 minutes away, and there are stunning walks to be had along the coast or inland. Or, while away a relaxing few days right here amid the refreshing natural surroundings - it's what glamping is all about.
