Hill View Glamping

UK Wales Mid Wales Carmarthenshire

Hill View Glamping, Alltygrug, Llangain, Carmarthen, Carmarthenshire, SA33 5AY
Wooden glamping cabins with a cosy interior that sleeps up to five people, set on an organic farm in Carmarthenshire, Wales.
When Carmarthenshire farmer Kevin Evans told us he had two ‘arks’ on his organic farm the first thing that came to mind was a biblical, boat-like structure. After all, there are plenty of animals around to march on two by two – wild fowl and butterflies, the herd of 35 suckler cows and a growing number of red kites and birds of prey. His organic methods and nature-friendly agriculture has made it a little haven for wildlife. Flood or no flood.

The arks, however, are just for human folk and can certainly stand up to a good storm if needs be! From outside they’re essentially a smart, weather proof wooden shed with a colourful canvas roof, while inside the draped fabric lining gives it an almost safari tent feel. The overall effect is fabulous. Comfortable, spacious and warm, they feel wonderfully soft and feature a large double bed, three single futons and a log burner. A stepping-stone pathway leads out to a separate block that contains a well equipped kitchen – with a fridge, cooker and hobs for each ark – while toilet and shower facilities are in another spate wooden cabin.

Outside you’re free to explore the farm. Try bird spotting down at one of the two ponds or follow the tiny stream. The site is a rural spot, so for most attractions you do really need a car to get around. It’s a mere four miles to the seaside village of Llansteffan, overlooking the Towey Estuary, where a ruined 12th-century castle is worth poking your nose into en-route to the nearest beaches. The whole bay is full of long sandy stretches and great for a waterside stroll. 

Or head inland to the historic county village of Carmarthen, five miles from the campsite. At one point it was the largest town in the entire country and is allegedly the birthplace of the wizard Merlin. The most picturesque part of town today is around Nott Square, where the grand 18th-century Guildhall sits at the base of a castle built in honour of Edward I. On the way you can also stop in at Carmarthenshire County Museum, housed inside the 16th-century Bishop’s Palace in Abergwili. It’s a convenient option for a rainy day. Not that rainy days bother you when you have your very own ark.

The Owner Says

We offer an alternative to the traditional holiday B&B or hotel – why not stay in an Ark and go Glamping in Wales? It’s a magical experience. The rectangular structure, rather than the traditional round shape of the yurt, and ark offers you a grander, more comfortable living space. Couple that with the wood burning stove to keep you warm and snug and the luxurious furnishings cannot fail to charm you. Situated in Carmarthenshire, close to the Pembrokshire border, Hill View couldn’t be better situated for your Ark Holiday in South Wales. As well as being surrounded by beautiful open countryside, South Wales offers culture, fun and excitement in abundance. We are only 4 miles from lovely secluded seaside village of Llansteffan, and only half an hour from the world famous Oakwood adventure theme park. Alternatively you can chill out on the organic farm and take in the panoramic vistas on walks around around the farm.
