Upscale Camping

If you enjoy the outdoors but are unwilling to sacrifice all creature comforts, fforest might be the place for you. Located in West Wales outside Cardigan, fforest is billed as “a hotel with woodland corridors and canvas rooms.” Accommodations range from three types of tents to croglofts (small crofter’s cottages that are perfect for winter camping or for those who prefer more traditional amenities). Avid campers can choose from geodesic dome tents, nomad tents, and tepee-like Swedish kåta tents. All tents are perched on wooden platforms with ample deck space and covered outdoor cooking areas. The tents are furnished with mattress pads, reindeer hides or Welsh woolen blankets, lounging sacks, and even woodstoves. The dome tents and croglofts feature luxuries in outdoor living: beds and furniture!

Breakfast typically consists of local produce. For other meals, an open-air, covered kitchen and dining facility is available for use. Other facilities include shower and toilet buildings, a lodge, lounge and bar, covered fire pit and party areas, and a cedar barrel sauna.

For entertainment, various outdoor activities abound; consider walking, cycling, canoeing and kayaking, archery, orienteering and bushcraft. Those looking for something more challenging might tackle abseiling, climbing and high ropes, mountain biking, surfing, rafting, coasteering, or paintballing.

Care to try “sleeping and living under canvas with beauty, birdsong and cold-at-night”?
