Glamping Wales

Vintage Glamping offers a collection of three original vintage wagons at Penrhiwgaled Farm, near the coastal town of New Quay in Wales. The Wagons include The Showman’s Home, Betsey Trotwood a horse drawn tram and The Gypsy Wagon, all of which are are over 70 years old and have many original features.

The glamping site is set in a four acre meadow with beautiful views over farmland and woods to the hills beyond. Our farm is just 2 miles from the coastal town of New Quay, with it’s beaches, harbour and famous dolphins so there is plenty to do. The farm is also home to two water buffalo which can often be seen relaxing in the fields and lake at the farm. Vintage Glamping allows you to combine the experience of living in these wonderful wagons from a bygone age with some modern comforts: as each one has their own private shower room with w.c. and wash hand basin

BETSEY TROTWOOD – Sleeps 2 adults

Betsey was converted from a tram to a holiday home, called the ‘Bungavan’ during the 1930’s.
