Tipis At Ponty
A six-acre small holding, with riverside pitches and stunning views of the surrounding countryside.
About: New this season! Welcome to ‘Rita’ our woodland log cabin, she complements our two fully furnished tipis, 'Mavis' and 'Mary' to provide the perfect glamping experience to suit you. Nestling on the hillside are our three tent pitches 'Daffyd', 'Algie' and 'Don Don', for those who prefer to bring their own. Also new to the 2021 season is our ‘wild camping’ area situated in our adjacent secluded, river edged paddock with five large pitches.
The log cabin and tipis are self-sufficient, each with a cooking pod stocked with equipment, bedding, towels, crockery, cutlery, glasses, seating, fire pit, stove and logs... all you need to bring are your clothes and food.
The tent pitches have simple seating and fire baskets, as well as a communal cooking pod. Logs and kindling are available to purchase onsite.
There are two wet rooms and a kitchenette, with microwave, kettle, fridges, a small freezer and washing up facilities for all to use. Here you will find our 'shop' offering bare essentials and our own home-made produce, with an honesty box. Also the 'sunset shack' in the upper copse with its stunning views, provides informal dining, relaxation and recreation. Games, cards and books are available, as well as candles and blankets for those chilly evenings.
Our land borders on the River Cain (to which we have fishing rights), and the paddock is the perfect place to exercise yourselves and your four-legged friends. You may even be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of an otter, kingfisher, heron or cormorant too. Our friendly small flock of rare breed Jacob sheep will be your close neighbours during your stay as well as a couple of Gloucester old spot pigs!
We are an easily accessed site with local amenities in the village half a mile away, and many places of natural beauty, cultural and historical interest in close proximity.
Worth Noting: We are an adult only, dog-friendly site, although families are welcomed on our exclusivity deals. Part of our business is catering, and we offer a range of menus for your delight. See website for more details.
