Saffir is a luxury timber Eco Lodge with breathtaking views towards the Cambrian Mountains. The Eco Lodge enjoys a secluded peaceful location on our organic farm yet is only 20 mins drive from the best beaches and cafes of Cardigan Bay.
Saffir blends luxury, comfort, a stunning location and original design into one glamping holiday.
Wake up on your glamping holiday to watch the sun rising over the distant Cambrian mountains of mid Wales. The views down the valley from the comfort of the king size bed make Saffir a beautiful glamping holiday destination. The Swedish wood fired hot tub is perfect for gazing at the stars.
Award winning interior designers Cream & Black designed the interior to Saffir. You will love the finishing touches and beautiful original detail as you sit back and enjoy the view from the large octagonal windows. Saffir really is like something out of Grand Designs or Amazing Spaces.
Saffir Eco Lodge offers a green low carbon holiday. The building is built with natural materials like locally grown timber, sheep’s wool and even has a grass roof! Green energy is provided by a wind turbine and solar panels and the hot tub is heated using home grown firewood from our own woodlands on the organic farm.
The Eco Cabins feel spacious inside, the octagonal shape flows and gives the interior a relaxing feel. There are two comfy chairs which sit either side of the log burner and TV to the side. Underfloor heating powered by the farm’s wind turbine and solar panels will keep you warm all year round.
On the opposite side of the room sits a large oak dining table with views across the valley. Adjacent to this is the open plan kitchen with stone worktop which is fully equipped for cooking up a lavish meal. A king size bed faces the view down the valley and neat fold down bunk beds are available for children. The cloak room by the kitchen leads to a WC and shower room with rain head shower.
Outside there is an enclosed garden and Swedish wood fired hot tub to soak up the panoramic views and relax under a starry night sky.

Saffir (Sapphire) is perfect for a sustainable green holiday. The aim of the design was to blend the house into the landscape, to make the most of the beautiful views from the interior, and to use natural materials, like our own organic meadow grass on the roof! Sheep’s wool insulates the walls and welsh timber clads the exterior. Much of the furniture and interior details have been upcycled to stylish effect.
Sixteen scots pine trees, visible from the interior, hold up the roof. They are arranged to make an eight sided octagonal house. The octagon creates a circular feel to the space inside. The timber beams are visible from the inside complete with hand crafted oak pegs that hold the building together.
The design of the cabins is completely original. You won’t find another building like this anywhere else in the world! Both houses are dug into the hillside and have a warm blanket of turf on top. The house has grown up from the earth using mostly natural materials yet still offers luxury and comfort for an amazing glamping holiday in Wales.
