Gorse Yurt, Cardigan.
Near Cardigan Bay, sitting on a raised deck overlooking the Ceredigion countryside few yurts can boast such a sense of space and freedom. Almost at the end of a 'no through' country lane, this smallholding is surrounded by open farmland and woodlands with flourishing wildlife including owls, red kite, herons, hares and red squirrels. Forest mountain biking and hiking are on your doorstep. The sense of peace and stillness is tangible, if you're looking for a genuine 'away from it all' break, this could well be it!
The site is a remote and private 5 acre smallholding where Charlotte and Roy's family keep a few small animals, grow their own vegetables, and are adding new features such as a recently planted small woodland.
The yurt and nearly all of furniture was hand crafted by Charlotte's son, Morgan, who's been making festival size yurts for many years. Everything he makes has a solid, natural style, following the wood's inherent character which, along with the light and space in here, creates a deeply relaxing atmosphere. It's a big yurt - 6 meters wide providing a lot more room than most, making this a particularly comfy yurt break, there's also a rather clever 'en-suite' loo behind the wardrobe-looking doors! Two more people can sleep in a small pop-up yurt, which will be set up nearby when booked (additional £25 per night).
Outside, the generous covered deck has a BBQ, seating and dining table with fantastic views over the countryside - a great spot to laze about and unwind, eat, read, watch soaring birds of prey or catch sight of the hares as the stream babbles by. For evening campfires and chats, a large fire pit sits in a sheltered spot in the scoop of the land. If you are mesmerised by star watching on clear nights this is the place for you. The night skies are crystal clear with no light pollution to spoil the view - which is a breathtaking universe sweeping across the full breadth of the sky.
Near the farmhouse, approximately 50 meters away is a Shepherds hut with your
own private hot shower room, both yurt camps share the central butlers wash basin, and the stone barn next door with washing up sink and charger
could quite happily while away a couple of days here, but if you love to explore, this part of Wales has some stunning coastline along Cardigan Bay, forests and unspoiled countryside.
