We collected eggs, cuddled cows, swam in the sea and sat out under the stars. Lovely.

Yurts. Just a few short years ago they were a rare breed in the Welsh countryside, an exotic novelty. Now, suddenly, they’re everywhere.

But it should be noted that not all yurts are equal. While many outfits are reputable and well-run, there are also those yurts propped up in fields/back-gardens/allotments operated by charlatans who don’t really know what they’re doing and just want to make a quick buck. You have been warned. Thankfully, at the Yurt Farm, Thea and Laurie know what they’re doing. And they do it very well. This place hasn’t been thrown together, it’s been thought through, planned out, then nurtured and loved into existence. Breathing new life into a forgotten corner of a large organic farm in Ceredigion, this collection of five yurts is less about the accommodation itself and more about the fully immersing experience of this off-beat, off-grid, off-the-beaten-track hideaway.

A spacious hay meadow gives each yurt as much room as some other campsites might give 30 tents. The yurts are warm and cosy, not to mention impeccably well-maintained, as is the railway carriage which sits on a separate natural bench with lovely views of the Cambrian Mountains. The location of this glampsite is perfect; ridiculously remote and enveloped in the sort of rich, green countryside for which Wales is famous. And the love is evident everywhere; a welcome basket of tasty veg for guests; unique four-poster beds fashioned out of trees; wheelbarrows on hand for transporting your gear (vehicles are not allowed on site).

There’s a cosy communal wood cabin with cooking facilities, tables, chairs and board games for rainy days, as well as the wherewithal to make a cup of tea. However, most of the glamping time will no doubt be spent outdoors, with so much space to fill on the farm. In all, there are 150 acres to be discovered, criss-crossed by a network of farm trails and children are free to explore, make dens, hide in the long grass, play in the sand, hang off rope swings, collect eggs, be licked by cows and gorge themselves silly on the blackcurrants and gooseberries that grow in the yurt meadow.

With the striking Cambrian mountains as a backdrop to this enchanting place, there’s no doubt this beautiful, remote location enhances the blissed-out go-slow vibe. But if it’s those quirky little yurts that bring you here in the first place, it’ll be the welcome, the hospitality and low-impact philosophy that’ll keep you coming back.

The campsite owner says

The Yurt Farm, in 2009 Thea and Laurie set up a small glamping site on their organic family farm twenty minutes from Cardigan Bay. Four muddy children later we are even more passionate about what we do; we live for wood, good food and fresh air. The yurt meadow is secluded with four yurts and a cosy train carriage in a hay meadow surrounded by woodland under a very starry sky. Collect eggs from the hens that cluck around the yurts and fry them up for breakfast on your campfire while you listen to the birds singing. Taste delicious organic vegetables and meat from the farm shop. Fire up the pizza oven. Meet the cows and sheep and harvest some tasty vegetables for tea. Play games in the communal cabin. Relax while your children build dens and catch grasshoppers in the long grass... you'll love it xx
