The Pantcefn Luxury Glamping – glamorous pods in West Wales.
There is nothing I love more than finding a unique, stunning staycation and The Pantcefn Luxury Glamping group is exactly that! As someone who lives in Wales, I love finding a lodge surrounded by fields and breathtaking views, especially in my neighbourhood. The luxury lodges lie on the outskirts of the quaint village of Llanarth, home to a village shop and local pub – the Llanina Arms Hotel.
You have two choices when you stay with The Pantcefn Luxury Glamping Group: The Boathouse or The Piglet Pod. The Rusty Boathouse is a slightly bigger single-story pod sleeping two guests and is perched lakeside with private decking and a jetty, ideal for a romantic retreat.
Upon arriving at Pantcefn Glamping fields, I was greeted by one of the owners Dylan who was very friendly and showed us the way to the lodge. There are parking facilities at the lodge so you don’t have to worry about walking far to the lodges. As soon as I walked into The Boathouse, it took my breath away! You can instantly see so much thought has gone into the interior design as everything matched beautifully, so stylish! You enter through glass doors, lining the front of the pod, displaying uninterrupted panoramic views of the fields and jetty, giving a light and airy ambiance.
Inside The Boathouse there is a king-size bed with luxury bed linen, a Smart TV, and a huge shower room and a walk-in shower, basin and heated towel rail. You will find an open-plan kitchen, dining area, and sitting area with a kitchen that includes everything you could need for your staycation. It has a fabulous selection of crockery and cutlery and even a coffee machine! The lodges are self-catering so taking lots of your favourite snacks and a delicious meal to cook inside the lodge for a date night is a great option.
As someone who works from Wi-Fi and their laptop, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the signal and Wi-Fi inside The Boathouse worked a treat. I never struggled to get a signal which really helped me do some work surrounded by amazing countryside views. An office doesn’t get any better than this!
No matter if you are looking for a relaxing staycation or celebrating a special occasion, this is the perfect place to escape.
As the evening drew in, a beautiful orange sunset reflected over the lodge and onto the lake and there is nothing better than climbing into a hot tub, surrounded by the sun setting over the water while enjoying a glass of bubbles. I absolutely loved the patio area with an outdoor fire pit, a huge hot tub, and romantic outdoor lighting hanging across the seating area. This created a perfect sitting space to relax in the evening!
In the morning, I was greeted by one of the owners, Catrin who personally delivered a breakfast box filled with warm croissants, fresh juice, waffles, fruit and so much more. This really put a smile on my face and was a great way to start the day.
The luxury interior touches in the lodge didn’t go unnoticed. From the electric blinds providing privacy inside the lodge, to the magazines left on the coffee table to enjoy whilst sipping on your morning coffee, and how the heating in the lodge was already on when we arrived so we were warm and toasty, all of these touches were things to remember.
If you are looking for a romantic retreat, these lodges are located a stone’s throw away from the sandy shores of Aberaeron and Penbryn.
This lodge will be a stay I remember due to the incredibly friendly welcome and amazing thoughtful comfortable decor.
