Enjoy luxurious domes for 4-6 on this eco-friendly site in the breathtaking Welsh countryside. 10 minutes from several beaches. Great for families.

Wild Wellingtons in Ceredigion offers guests a chance to experience the stunning Welsh countryside in modern, off-grid eco-domes for 4-6 people set in peaceful meadows just a 10-minute drive from the nearest beaches. Lovely views and extras to entertain the kids!

The site offers 2 domes - Cromen Ddôl (Meadow Dome) & Cromen Glan Môr (Seaside Dome) - and a shepherd’s hut style cabin - Cwt ar y Bryn (Hut on the Hill). All accommodations are off-grid, modern and spacious with high ceilings. They are all south facing with plenty of light and fantastic views of the surrounding countryside. 

The domes are set in a picturesque meadow and furnished with bespoke, four-poster king size beds and 2 singles - plus 2 fold up beds can be added in the Meadow Dome if necessary. Both domes offer an indoor dining area for 4, wood burners with fireguards, plus an outdoor decked space with picnic table, Kadai fire pit and cookware for outdoor fires, barbecues and cooking. Four guests are perfect for Y Cwt (The Hut) and Cromen Glan Môr (Seaside Dome) though an extra fold up bed can be added. Free travel cots are provided for all accommodation.

Y Cwt (The Hut) is spacious with south-facing oak windows and French doors, plus 2 separate bedrooms - a master with king size bed and a twin room (which can be converted to a double). Guests can relax in the large living room and dining area with exposed beams and a cosy woodburner. Outside guests can enjoy their own garden with picnic table and a fire pit with seating.

Wild Wellingtons is ideal for families as there are plenty of meadows, woodland and ponds to explore. The shared facilities include the large indoor Hansel & Gretel style BBQ log cabin which seats up to 15 people, an outdoor pizza oven, a large and well-equipped low impact kitchen cabin with countryside views, plus modern and luxurious wetrooms.
