Each one features a wood-burning stove, a spacious outdoor deck with furniture, and a fully equipped, all-weather kitchen with a two-ring gas stove and bucket BBQ.

For larger groups ready to soak up everything fforest farm has on offer, there are two other marvellous options - Hill Shacs and Garden Shacs. There are 3 Hill Shacs and 3 Garden Shacs, each possible to book together so even more can join in the fun!
Onsen Domes (sleep 4)
The farm's latest addition, Onsen Domes take year-round comfort, romance and engagement with the outdoors to an opulent new level.
First, you'll find an insulated cedar and zinc clad pod connected directly to the dome with an en-suite shower room, together with an indoor table and seating area that features both power sockets and a fridge.
Outside, discover a private Japanese style bath-house with shower, basin and cast concrete, sunken soaking tub...perfect for stargazing!
The fully equipped outdoor kitchen and dining area is custom-built from reclaimed hardwood, with a combined outdoor wood-burning stove and barbeque.
Oh...and did we mention the outdoor sofa on the decking, where you can relax overlooking the beautiful Welsh countryside?
Hill Shacs (sleep 8)
A break becomes extra-special when it's spent in a loving group of family or friends.
The new, larger, and completely upgraded Hill Shacs are ideal for groups, featuring two sleeping cabins and a covered, outdoor central kitchen area (so the adults can enjoy a glass of wine on the deck, while the kids run around in the fields!)
Each consists of two solid sleeping ‘cabins', either side of a covered, outdoor kitchen. Gorgeously cosy, they also boast ‘proper' beds, full heating, and power sockets.
Garden Shacs (sleep 6)
Brand-new additions, you'll find these enchanting rooms in the farmyard area, overlooking the raised bed gardens.
Each room is carefully lined with pine panelling, specially crafted to be cool in summer, and warm in winter. You'll also find comfy, custom-made beds with full size mattresses - and with three bedrooms in each Garden Shac cottage, you'll have plenty of sleeping space to choose from!
The covered, outdoor kitchen area features everything you'll need to rustle up deliciously simple meals, and there's a custom built L-shape sofa on the decked area - perfect for curling up to watch the sunset with a glass of bubbles!
Meanwhile, luxurious showers and toilets are a mere stroll away.
Domes (sleep 4)
The domes at fforest farm are rightly famous, each with a solid wood floor, a wood-burning stove, bespoke furnishings...and of course, the stunning view from a giant bay window.
Each dome has its own blend of character and comfort, for the perfect romantic getaway. Featuring a kingsize bed with feathersoft duvet and pillows, the single futon mattresses also make it an ideal family retreat.
Kata Cabins (sleep 5)
You won't find a Kata Cabin anywhere else! Created by fforest farm, these ingenious beauties combine a bespoke wooden cabin and a spacious canvas tipi, giving you the best of both worlds. Sleeping five on soft sleeping mats, the Kata Cabin is ideal for those who want the outdoor experience - without getting too outdoorsy.
Bell Tents (sleep 4)
Is there anything more enchanting than the sight of a bell tent in a gorgeous green meadow? Sleeping four people apiece, these classic tents are all positioned with unbeatable views from the spacious deck, so you can make the most of your beautiful surroundings.
If you're after just a touch more luxury, don't forget Ty Fforest - the incredible Georgian farmhouse, which sleeps up to 14 people between five bedrooms. Or, for smaller groups, bed down in a cosy Crog loft. Found in the former pig sheds, each sleeps four, while the kitchen and dining areas are found on an outdoor porch - giving you all the luxury without missing out on the outdoors.
Wherever you stay, there's so much more to enjoy in the 200 acres of fforest farm. Take your relaxation up a notch in the cedar barrel sauna, or cool off with a dip in the river. And just when you thought it couldn't get any better, enjoy a drink in The Bwthyn, fforest farm's very own country pub - and perhaps the smallest in the country!
Beyond the farm, there's so much more to see - from the stunning beaches of Cardigan Bay to a variety of local castles, historic homes and museums. Thrillseekers have more than enough to get their teeth into as well; head to the Urdd Centre for dry-slope skiing, horse-riding and even go-karting, or head out on the waves for a spot of canoeing, sea kayaking, coasteering or surfing. Or of course, you can simply while away those hours on your deck, surrounded by the serenity of fforest farm.
Whether your dream getaway involves relaxing wrapped in a fforest blanket in front of a log burner, or adventuring in the countryside or coastlines of West Wales, fforest farm is your perfect escape. And with such incredible accommodation to choose from, you won't forget this one in a hurry...

"My girlfriend and I had a great weekend at Fforest. We loved the freedom and relaxed atmosphere. The highlight was lighting the fire in the on-site pub on a blustery February night! A beautiful experience. We'll be back in Summer and will tell our friends. Thanks."
"Our first stay at Fforest camp and what a stay it was! We had wanted to come along to Fforest Gather in the summer but things got in the way and when we saw all the amazing things that had happened there we just had to come and see for ourselves. As soon as you all in and are met by fairy lights you know it's going to be great! The dome was amazing, the facilities are fab and the staff are so friendly and really positive. The children made some great friends and we were able to relax and enjoy the atmosphere surrounding the fire pit outside the pub each evening. To top it off, the last supper was stunning. Not only did it look beautiful, it's tasted beautiful too! Fresh sprats and a chat with the Fforest Chief followed by delicious smoked mackerel and barbecued chicken (or the veggie option for us) and rice pudding were experiences we never thought we'd have. The children are already asking when we can come back and we are hoping to book in for next years Fforest Gather and possibly our wedding too! Thanks for a magnificent stay."
