Alachigh at Larkhill

Larkhill, Carmarthenshire, Wales

Award-winning eco-friendly site with gorgeous Alachigh with breakfast bar + views. Enjoy campfires, amazing stars, great views and friendly hosts.

WE ARE ROTATING GLAMPING OPTIONS THIS SUMMER AT LARKHILL TO ENSURE THAT THERE ARE NO SHARED FACILITIES DURING YOUR STAY. 

Larkhill Tipis & Yurts is a family-run, eco-friendly, award-winning campsite and has spectacular views of the Welsh countryside. Located on the edge of woodland on a 20 acre smallholding in Carmarthenshire, West Wales. 

The Alachigh sleeps 6 and sits in its own 'space', separated by mature shrubs and trees with pathways made by hand-made stepping stones. Inside there are beautiful rugs, lanterns, comfortable beds, sheepskins, big cushions, pillows and plenty of blankets. There is a log burning stove, which you can cook on, and a 2 ring gas stove. Enjoy eating your meals whilst at the breakfast bar whilst taking in the countryside views. All cooking equipment, a good supply of firewood and all normal camping paraphernalia is provided. Just bring your sleeping bags, some food, a towel and a torch.

Outside you can relax by a glowing campfire by night, looking at an endless sky of stars whilst waking to the sound of birdsong in the morning. Enjoy dining al fresco at the picnic table or simply sit back and relax. This is a quiet location, well away from busy roads and not far from both the Carmarthen Bay and the Cardigan Bay coastlines.

For use by all guests is a log cabin with full-size Calor gas cooker with an oven, a wood-burning stove, low energy power for mobile phone charging, a sink, a central table and it has also been made cosy with lots of cushions to sit and chat to fellow guests. There are 2 hot showers, a tiled compost loo and a standard flush loo too. Children can enjoy the play area on the edge of the woodland and den-building is encouraged! 

If you are looking for a child-friendly, relaxed and sustainable alternative holiday, look no further. The entire campsite is run by alternative energy - wind and solar - and a new hydroelectric system. All cleaning products are environmentally friendly, and they supply eco-friendly shampoo, conditioner, soap and clothes washing products. There are also recycling facilities on site.
