Sitting on a raised deck overlooking the Ceredigion countryside few yurts can boast such space and freedom. The spacious holiday accommodation is perfect for couples and small families looking for a secluded stretch of the Welsh countryside to enjoy. Sitting between the Teifi Valley and the majestic Cambrian Mountains, yet within reach of the popular market towns of Lampeter and Tregaron, here is a place to truly relax and put a contented smile upon your face.

What's more, the award-winning Dolaucothi Arms, set in the National Trust's Dolaucothi Estate is only 20 minutes away, which makes a perfect place for a hearty meal or a cold tipple. This lovely inn was named Country Pub of the Year by Countryfile 2019.

The comfortable accommodation is luxuriously furnished with a large double bed, compact kitchen, plus your own private dining area and BBQ outside. The romantic location is simply perfect for those looking to soak up some tranquillity and spend quality time together.

besides for the occasional farmer trundling through the fields, you will be treated to nothing but the sounds of woodland birds chirping away and the occasional hooting owls as dusk falls.

This natural dark sky location is perfect for stargazing and is home to a multitude of rare breed birds and mammals including Red Kites soaring in the skies and elusive Red Squirrels scuttling between the branches of the adjacent forest.

Nearby there are some great hiking and walking routes with the Cambrian Mountains on your doorstep. The golden beaches and craggy coves of Cardigan Bay are around a 30-minute drive, while adventurous guests can travel all the way up to Snowdonia in the North and the Brecon Beacons in the South West. However, this is also the type of place you simply won't want to leave.

The secluded oasis sits almost at the end of a 'no through' country lane, with the sense of peace and quiet a real highlight. If you're looking for a complete break 'away from it all' then this luxury glamping site is the perfect tonic.

The large, purpose-built site is home to just two yurts. For a larger group, Gorse can also be rented with Rowan Yurt, located further upstream, sleeping, two people.

The yurt and all furniture were handcrafted by Morgan, who's been making yurts for many years. Everything has a solid, rustic style that follows the woods natural edges and shapes, creating a natural, unique interior. It's a big yurt - 6 metres wide providing a lot more room than most, which means there's enough room for a small cooking area, log burner, dining table and a single bed that doubles up rather nicely as a sofa... not to mention a super comfy double bed as well! 

Outside the yurt has a lovely big covered deck with fantastic views over the countryside, a BBQ, more seating and a dining table... what a great spot to laze about and unwind, read or watch the birds of prey to the gentle sound of a stream babbling by. Pop down the steps and in front of the deck you'll find a large campfire pit - a cracking spot for evening chats and on a clear night, star gazing. The night skies here are crystal clear with no light pollution to spoil the view - which is the universe sweeping across the full breadth of the sky!

 About 50 metres away is the Shepherds hut with your own private hot shower room and a shared washbasin (with the other yurt camp), next door is a small barn with washing-up sink and charger points, shared with the other yurt. 

The site is a 5-acre smallholding where Charlotte and the family keep a few small animals and grow their own vegetables. You could quite happily while away a couple of days here, but if you do want to explore, this part of Wales has some stunning coastline, forests and countryside. 

Cardigan Bay and is around a 30-minute drive with the coastal towns and beaches of Aberaeron, Aberystwyth, New Quay and Llangrannog all with easy reach.

To the North, explore the mystical expanse of unperturbed wilderness which make sup the Cambrian mountains. Here you are likely to see plenty of wildlife and some of Wales most untouched landscapes. 

If you have plenty of time on your hands, then day trips to Snowdonia and the Brecon Beacons National Parks are a real treat but can be quite a drive along the windy, but scenic country roads.

For somewhere to eat, we recommend a visit to the Dolaucothi Arms, set in the National Trust's Dolaucothi Estate. This lovely watering hole was named Country Pub of the Year by Countryfile 2019 and is only 20 minutes from the property.

What's more, Lampeter is filled with a great selection of cafes, which are perfect for lunches or a tea spot when you're out exploring. For other eateries, take a trip to Tregaron, which is a short drive to the North.
