Never been to the beautiful ancient land of Ceredigion in West Wales? This is your chance to be an intrepid explorer. Felin Geri will provide you with an authentic luxurious safari experience in the deepest but not dark or wild Teifi Valley set on a 3 acre former 17th century water mill site. The mill building remains and the river Ceri that served it continues to meander through.
There is just one month left to experience the thrill of luxurious group glamping at Felin Geri. The perfect base for an early autumn break and especially the half term holiday. Families and well behaved dogs are most welcome.
Three sumptuous safari tents, Ceri, Aeron and Teifi (available individually or as a group) provide every comfort from log burning stoves to en-suite bathrooms, comfy beds, hotel quality bed linen, snuggly sheepskin throws, squishy leather sofas and well equipped kitchens. Hot tubs (by arrangement), outside furniture and barbecues are provided too. Each structure sleeps 6 guests in a double bedroom, twin bedroom and a Scottish style wooden cabin bed. 2 well behaved dogs are welcome per structure.
Perhaps best of all is the gorgeous on site cafe/bar. Who wants to cook on holiday, especially when delicious dishes made with the best local ingredients are served daily? A very handy on site store stocks basic needs such as bread and logs.
Children are well catered for too and are sure to love the wooden play fort in the trees.
