Glamping near Carmarthen
You’ll find Wigwam® Holidays Rivendell Farm nestled in a valley all of its own, 1000ft above sea level in the Carmarthenshire Hills. The farm sits on 100 acres of beautiful, rolling Welsh countryside - what better place to get away from it all and get stuck into some serious R&R time?
The site has 7 Running Water Deluxe Wigwam® Cabins, all with their own private hot tubs overlooking the luscious valley below - the perfect setting to relax and recharge your batteries.
Enjoy walks down into the valley for a fresh perspective on the spectacular landscape. Adventure through towering ferns and dancing foxgloves as the forest comes alive with birdsong. After a long day of exploring, sit back and relax in your hot tub as you admire the vast starry skies to remind you of life’s rural charms.
A warm welcome
Nigel and Sharon both found their way to farming from other walks of life, but along the way they’ve both developed a love of the outdoor lifestyle, and can’t wait to welcome you to their peaceful corner of the country. Not that they’re the only faces waiting to greet you…
Meet the animals
Rivendell is a small-scale working farm that focuses on rare breeds, and is home to sheep, Highland cattle, Berkshire pigs (and Daisy the pietrain), as well as a small flock of goats, ducks, chickens and guinea fowl. A veritable menagerie! We often have young animals that are hand reared and we welcome the participation of guests at feeding times. Fresh eggs from our resident happy hens will be gifted inside your cabin on arrival.
Although just a 20 minute drive away, Wigwam® Holidays Rivendell Farm feels a world apart from the historic town of Carmarthen. With its Roman origins and links to the Arthurian legend of Merlin, Carmarthen and the surrounding area are rich in stories and tradition. There are plenty of things to do and see in Carmarthen, including the street market selling everything from arts and crafts to locally produced meats, cheeses and cakes, the British Bird of Prey Centre, and Laugharne Castle.
If you prefer to explore the outdoors, Carmarthenshire combines striking coastal scenery with wooded river valleys, rolling hills and lakes perfect for adrenaline fueled adventures, scenic coastal walks and traditional seaside fun!
