Carmarthen - Newcastle Emlyn

Newcastle Emlyn is a town straddling the counties of Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire in west Wales (though officially it is in Carmarthenshire) and lying on the River Teifi.
Adpar is the part of the town that lies on the Ceredigion side of the River Teifi. It was formerly called Trefhedyn and was an ancient Welsh borough in its own right.
The town takes its name from the cantrefof Emlyn which was an administrative district in Medieval Dyfed. The cantref was made part of the Norman March in the 12th century.
Notable buildings in the town include a ruined 13th-century castle, first mentioned in Brut y Tywysogion in 1215, when it was seized by Llewelyn the Great (Welsh: Llywelyn Fawr). The castle was captured by the Welsh during the revolt of 1287-8 and also by Owain Glyndŵr in 1403.
Newcastle Emlyn has a town hall and secondary school, Ysgol Gyfun Emlyn. Attractions around the area include an art gallery, the Attic Theatre company, the National Woollen Museum. The Teifi Valley Railway is also nearby, although the town has not had a passenger train service since 1952. 

Tipi or Yurt Holidays Camping & Caravan Site Guest House/B&B

Larkhill Tipis & Yurts

Tel: 01559 371581

Our family run, award winning, campsite, established in 2003, has spectacular views of the Welsh countryside and is located on the edge of woodland on a 20 acres small holding in west Wales. We offer five different nomadic 'glamping' experiences: an Alachigh, a Mongolian Ger, a Bentwood Yurt, a Lavvu and a Native American Tipi, each of which has its own 'space', separated by mature shrubs and trees, and all connected by hand-made stepping stones.

Spend your evenings relaxing next to a glowing campfire, looking at an endless sky of stars and waking to the sound of birdsong. This is a quiet location, well away from busy roads and not far from both the Carmarthen Bay and the Cardigan Bay coastlines. If you're looking for a child-friendly, relaxed and sustainable alternative holiday, then you need look no further a 'glamping' holiday in a beautiful location.

Why not be an entirely eco-friendly holiday maker and consider your carbon footprint for your holiday. The entire campsite is run by alternative energy - wind and solar - and 2014 will see a new hydroelectric system up and running.  There's no need to bring lots of things with you we really do supply all the normal camping paraphernalia! All you need to bring are sleeping bags, your own food, a towel and a torch. We are always on hand to help in any way and offer a friendly service to all!
