If you enjoy exploring Britain’s scenic coastlines, it’s possible you’ve seen some of TruDomes’ geodesic domes dotted within the landscape. A spectacular sea view is a premium feature for glamping businesses, but the accommodation needs to be made of stern stuff as coastal locations are usually more exposed when the British weather takes an extreme turn. Thankfully, TruDomes are designed and built to stand tall under pressure – as one glamping site in South Wales discovered on a particularly gusty day.
Thorning Farm Glamping & Camping is nestled on the stunning Carmarthenshire coast, enjoying far-reaching views extending from Tenby Saundersfoot Amroth to Worms Head on the Gower peninsula. The site features a collection of our domes with large panoramic windows enabling campers to cuddle up on the sofa with a cuppa and enjoy breath-taking sunsets.
Thorning Farm really comes into its own on those tranquil spring and summer days. With instant access to the Wales Coastal Path, glampers can spend a day walking and breathing in the clean sea air, before retiring to their dome for some well-earned rest and relaxation.
On very rare occasions, Thorning Farm’s breezy calm is disturbed by a short, sharp storm. One day earlier this year, the wind speed reached unprecedented levels – so much so that it set off a camper’s car alarm!
Thorning Farm’s owners were pleased to see that there were no alarms for TruDomes amid the storm. They took shelter in one of our domes, observing the eccentric British weather from a haven of stillness and serenity which made a mockery of the battering winds outside. That robust protection is made possible with aircraft-grade aluminium frames and heavy-duty 650 g/m² PVC covers.
Thorning Farm were grateful for choosing the market-leading strength and durability that TruDomes offer. UK campers are a hardy bunch, never afraid to pit themselves against the elements, but when the storm arrives, they feel so much more at ease in a dome from TruDomes!
