Things to do while glamping in Aberystwyth
Relax on this special glamping site
Wigwam® Holidays Aberystwyth is tucked away on a quiet hillside meadow, on a family farm. The site has uninterrupted views across the Rheidol Valley, Cardigan Bay and north to Cadair Idris and the majesty of Snowdonia.
Views to be enjoyed from your own private dining area outside your picturesque glamping pod, or even better – from the luxurious vantage of an indulgent woodfired hot tub.
As a university town, you would expect a variety of great pubs and eateries and you’d be right. Here you can enjoy some delicious meals to suit any and all tastes, and with the close proximity to the sea, there’s a strong focus on local seafood.
