Glamping in West Wales
Cwm Ty Coed, with a Yurt and bell tent is one of the best for glamping in West Wales. We also offer BYO and camper van pitches with the same kitchen and outdoor facilities. We provide comfortable and workable facilities for all our guests; all with those little finishing touches which make such a difference.
Set on our 30 acre smallholding in the rolling countryside of West Wales situated only three miles from the county town of Carmarthen. Once on the glamping site it is hard to imagine the proximity to the market town with its many restaurants, cafés and shops.
The smallholding is home to our lovely donkeys and ponies as well as a small flock of rare breed sheep who cheerfully perform their lawn mowing duties. Campers can help themselves to fresh eggs from the hens in the camping field and feed the miniature ducks who enjoy their pond in the centre of the field. All water is fenced for safety.
Three Glamping pitches and three camping pitches are situated in a large meadow surrounded by woodland. Each pitch has a private, well equipped camp kitchen and outdoor fire-pit, barbecue and washing up station. There are two woodland pitches suitable for either your own tent or camper van.
Our largest, insulated and most comfortable accommodation. Comfortably sleeps five.
Traditional canvas tents, with lovely wooden fittings, are tastefully decorated and comfortably sleep up to four people.
All accommodation is fully equipped with all beds, bedding and blankets. They each have a wood burning stove. Lanterns and solar lighting provide a lovely ambience.
PRIVATE CAMP KITCHENS
Each pitch, Glamping or camping, has a private, well equipped camp kitchen which is includes anything likely to be needed for camp cooking and dining. There is a double ring gas hob, cool box and a good selection of pans, utensils, crockery and cutlery. We provide barbecues and tools. A daily basket of logs is delivered each evening for the outdoor fire pits and the wood burning stoves. The camp kitchens are covered, with a table and seating which enable our guests to enjoy meals under cover should the weather be wet.
FIRE PIT AND BBQ
Each pitch has an outdoor fire pit for those lovely evenings under the stars. There is barbecue for each tent and every pitch has its own outdoor picnic table.
SHOWERS AND TOILETS
There are gas powered showers in the camping fields and we have compost toilets. We know that the quality of these facilities is very important to our guests and these are clean and attractively decorated. We are available on arrival to talk our guests through the simple instructions. Natural, filtered spring water is piped to each pitch.
Make and cook your own pizzas in out wood fired oven.
A wooden cabin nestled amongst the trees which provides a comfortable space in which to relax should the weather be inclement; it is well supplied with books and board games and has table tennis and table football.
MEADOW AND WOODLAND
There are acres of meadow and woodland at Cwm Ty Coed to be explored and dotted about the woods are various tree swings, there is even a zip wire (suitable for adults and children over 8 years old).
Ecological cleaning products are always supplied for our guests. There is a recycling area on site and we encourage all possible waste to be composted. We use solar energy for most of the on-site lighting although there is mains electricity to the wooden cabin, for charging phones. We encourage camp fires in the designated fire pits.
The camp site is well situated for many of the attractions of West Wales. The nearest coast is only five miles away and the fantastic Pembrey Country Park, with miles of sandy beach can be reached in fifteen minutes by car. To the east, the coast of the Gower is not far away and the many beaches of Pembrokeshire are an equal distance to the west. Llansteffan offers a spectacular coastal walk and you can be exploring its sandy coves within twenty minutes of leaving your tent.
Brechfa Forest is very close by and offers stunning walks and mountain bike tracks. For those who prefer a more relaxed style of cycling there is the newly completed and award winning Millennium Coastal Path. We can even arrange cycle hire.
The area is steeped in history and legend, after all Carmarthen is believed to be the oldest town in Wales and the fabled birth place of Merlin. Carmarthenshire boasts at least twelve castles. More recent history could draw you to the picturesque village of Laugharne and Dylan Thomas’ boat house with its evocative views across the estuary.
For the adventurous spirit there are plenty of activities to be enjoyed including mountain biking, horse riding, coasteering, sailing, kayaking and seal watching on the West coast.
