We’re really sorry but we aren’t having any visitors at the moment as we don’t have the space for social distancing in our Big Lodge.
——————————-
Tipi Valley is situated high in the hills of South-West Wales. Our community have been buying it field by field since 1975. In this time our oldest fields have regenerated from sheep farming land to mixed deciduous woodland rich in wildlife. It’s a wild valley dotted with our homes that are low impact dwellings – tipis, yurts and turf roofed round huts.

Living this close to nature and the elements creates a deep connection with the land. We express this in our lives through creative work on our shelters and gardens and get-togethers in our communal tipi, known as the big lodge, where we gather for music and song.

Over the years we have had over 130 home births and our children are either home educated or go to the local bilingual schools.

The big lodge tipi is also where visitors stay. We expect our visitors to look after the big lodge by keeping it a tidy and welcoming space. There are also opportunities to help around the valley – if you would like to be involved please enquire on arrival.

Please email us if you would like to visit.
