Such a magical and enchanting experience

My partner and I stayed in Mongolian Ger for 2 nights and the experience was incredible, to say the least. Everything from the amazingly detailed interior of the yurt to the lovely wood carvings dotted around the woodland surroundings. It was perfect. A little quieter than the normal time of year, but personally I thought that was just perfect, a lovely short break to sit back, relax and enjoy the beauty of nature. I will definitely be returning next year! Can't wait to try out the other yurts!! :)

The perfect glamping holiday.

We have just returned from our lovely visit to Larkhill with our two teenage boys. From the outset Fran was so hospitable and everything you could possibly want or need was catered for. The setting is beautiful and the way the land has been nurtured and managed is really inspiring. We stayed in The Alachigh which had plenty of room, was super cosy with the wood burner and had a lovely window to watch the sunset from.We would highly recommend a visit.

Larkhill tipi

Just perfect.  Stayed for two nights in the lavvu,  which was cosy and snug.  Kids loved it and didn't want to leave.  Explored some lovely beaches.  Larkhill is beautiful,  well thought out and very welcoming.  We all want to go back again soon.  Highly recommended.

Larkhill Tipis

Awesomely beautiful place. Comfortable, welcoming, relaxing. Just returned from 3rd visit, and most other people staying were also on return visits. Stayed in Mongolian Ger (Yurt) with 2 young children. They had the best time, as they can have so much freedom. A truly peaceful place for a getaway, and a good base for exploring West Wales.
