Black Hat

Filled to the brim with surprises

Often worn by children on St David’s Day, the Black Hat forms an important part of a Welsh cultural identity

During a failed attempt by the French to invade Britain via Fishguard in 1797, hundreds, if not thousands of women from the small port marched to the front line to defend their country, dressed in traditional scarlet tunics and tall black hats.

It is thought that from a distance, the women may have been mistaken for British army Redcoats. Suffice to say the French didn’t stay long.

From a deterrent to a one-of-a-kind attraction, Black Hat stands tall in the landscape, enticing passers-by. 

Like a tipi, a simple timber frame supports a canvas skin, shaped into a traditional hat. Its spacious design can accommodate fellow campers for dining, entertainment or storytelling, while the apron pulls out to welcome arriving guests.

But when the Welsh climate is less favourable, why not snuggle up on the sofa and enjoy the warmth of the stove and traditional Welsh wool-covered walls.

At the end of the day, retire to the king-size bed in the top of the hat for a comfortable snooze or a spectacular view of the stars through the roof dome.
