This glamping site is located in the rural village of Felindre in the Powys county of Wales, where it is situated on a 20-acre smallholding that was formerly a 150-acre hill farm. Here, guests will be surrounded by lush rolling farmland as far as the eye can see, interspersed with copses of mature trees full of abundant wildlife, such as badgers, buzzards, foxes, Welsh ponies, and woodpeckers. At the site, guests will find verdant paddocks and a well-established garden, along with free-range chickens, Welsh black mountain sheep, a herd of five horses, two dogs, and two cats who call the site home.

In the immediate area surrounding the site, guests will find a variety of cycling routes and walking paths, such as the five-mile Beguildy Community Trail, the 12-mile Glyndwr's Way circular walk, and the various routes to be explored at Beacon Hill Crown Estate. The latter is a 5,000-acre nature reserve, where guests can enjoy a wide-open landscape covered in heather and filled with wildlife and birds, such as meadow pipits, stonechats, and whinchats. Here, guests will also find excellent tracks for horseback riding, with two bridle paths leading right from the site to the estate.

Slightly farther afield, yet only nine miles away in Knighton, guests will also find the intersection of two national trails: Offa's Dyke Path and Glyndwr's Way.
