Here’s what some of you had to say about your stay at Ardfern Tipis:


Hi Tiziana,

Paul, Grace and I would like to thank you and your husband for a wonderful two days, what an experience. Your attention to detail especially with the hamper for Paul’s birthday was excellent. The little touches such as providing bottle openers, candles and oil made all the difference. Your friendly and relaxed approach made our stay in an extremely unusual and exciting environment very enjoyable indeed, despite the weather on the first night.

We will most certainly return , thank you once again from a very happy little family xx


Hi guys,

Just sending a quick email to say a huge thankyou for such a wonderful stay the other weekend; it was such an amazingly unique experience and I know I speak for Charlie when I say we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and so glad we were so lucky with the weather!!

We will be sure to spread the good work and good luck with all the new additions… (We are very keen to try out the Mongolian yurt!)

If you’re at all interested in any constructive feedback, our only comment would be that your website doesn’t do you justice! 🙂 We were absolutely shocked by the secluded and beautiful location that you offer, the sheer tranquility of the whole experience and the friendly, family run atmosphere from the moment we arrived.

That’s the only advice we could offer, it was perfect and we will definitely be back!

All the best,



I want to thank you all for a wonderful, wonderful holiday.

The Tipis were perfect- perfectly out of the way, but close to your facilities. They were extremely comfortable, and the surroundings are simply gorgeous. What a beautiful part of the country!
Our two little Indians fell into role from the moment we arrived, and they stayed happy and content to play in the worlds of their imaginations for the whole week. We didn’t switch on a computer, games console, or DVD player throughout the duration of our stay- which, for a 9 and a 5 year old is quite an achievement!
We were very grateful for the way you welcomed us and your flexible and relaxed way of offering us your help, support, friendship and advice.
We really do intend to come back. We loved it and I believe we had a far better time than we could ever have had in some bland luxury monolith on the Costa del Ripoff!

Looking forward to our next visit…
With all our love,
Fraser, Suzie, Hunter, Ethan (and Sunny!)


Hi Tiziana & Rory

I just wanted to drop you a quick email to tell you what a great time we had staying at the tipi last weekend, I don’t think we’ve ever been so relaxed!  I would definitely like to stay again.

All the best


Just to let you know we had a wonderful 2 nights in the tipi at Ardfern. It was a great surprise for my husband and kids and they all loved the weekend. We experienced a mixture of weathers, but having the fire on inside in the evening, kept us warm and in good spirits, telling jokes and stories!  We will certainly be telling our friends how much we enjoyed it all….thanks

On behalf of all of us, Rona, Nigel, Joyce and myself, we would like to thank you both for an amazing experience staying in your Tipis. We started off with great weather and then it deteriorated to rain for the second night but this did not dampen our spirits, in fact it just added to the experience.
We would definitely recommend this adventure to our families and friends.

Sorry I didn’t get to meet you, however your Husband gave us an excellent guided tour! Maybe next time.

Thank you again.

Best regards.



Hi Tiziana. Just wanted to thank you and Rory for our magical yurt experience. It was Caras first camping adventure and she loved it, so did we…

Although the weather was not on our side, the yurt was super comfortable and really fun. Will be back for more next year.

Kind regards, Julie


Wanted to mention how great the stay is at these tipis in Ardfern – wonderful scenery, tipis are very well equipped with everything you need and more. Super friendly family who make it feel informal, relaxed and enjoyable! Definately worth checking out as an alternative to B&B and camping as less hassle and extremely enjoyable! Hopefully i’ll be back to try the Mongolian yurt next time!
Warm wishes charlotte and family xx
