Glamping site adds kitchen dormitory following council approval

A Cardigan tourism business is to add to its offering again, this time at its countryside glamping and events venue.

Pembrokeshire County Council’s planning committee has approved plans for dormitory building with shared kitchen and amenities at Fforest Farm, Cilgerran, this week.

The application submitted by James Lynch is the latest in his tourism business plans which includes the recent opening of a four-star hotel in Grade II listed former warehouses in Cardigan.

To meet demand, a timer framed, single storey dormitory is to be built next to the existing communal facilities hub, and would be topped with a corrugated roofing sheet and vertical timber cladding.

Some councillors at planning committee on October 4 asked if a more aesthetically pleasing building could have been proposed before the application was unanimously approved.

A planning report states: “The detailed matters of the scheme are acceptable and demonstrate that the development would have an acceptable impact on the character and appearance of the area and on local amenity.”
