Carry on glamping this summer; 5 DAYS OUT WHITSUN.

Camping purists may sneer but glamping is here to stay with sites scattered across Wales. We pick seven sites that add a touch of luxury to outdoor living IT is an established phrase on the holiday scene these days - glamping.

More and more people are looking for that little bit of extra refinement when it comes to pitching up a tent or a tipi.

Or your vacationing residence of choice could be a yurt, a round tent covered with skins or felt and used as a dwelling by nomads in the steppes of Central Asia.

Whatever you are more comfortable in, the chances are that your enjoyment will be supplemented by gorgeous scenery.

So, with Whitsun coming up, here are some tasty options in the glamping department.

Henfryn Farm, Carmarthenshire Paddle in the river, walk the farm, enjoy the views around the river, light a camp fire and relax in the beautiful surroundings of a working organic farm on the banks of the River Teifi.
