Accommodation Description

· Kid-friendly · Pets allowed · Jacuzzi/Hot Tub · Barbecue

This glamping site near Brecon Beacons National Park in Wales offers five beautiful and stylish domes. Their unique design creates plenty of space without relying on support other than the structures themselves. Each of the domes has a large picture window, offering a great view of the native woodland creatures nearby.

The domes measure six meters in diameter and four meters high, and they sit on wooden platforms. Each dome can comfortably sleep up to four adults, or five to six people if the kids are joining.

On each deck, there is a gas bottle chiminea and there’s also a fire pit in front of the dome. Campfires are positively encouraged! There’s plenty of seating for everyone, and the large spaces around the fire pits mean that campfire cooking is a must.

Each of the domes come with a private compost toilet and full access to the property’s wood-fired showers.

Three of the domes (Holly, Oak, and Beech domes) share kitchen facilities in the woods. The other two domes (Hazel and Rowan domes) are set further away, and they have their own camp kitchen.

King bedding is provided, guests just need to bring sleeping bags for the kids or singles.

Glampers can keep warm under the thick feather duvets, contemporary Welsh blankets, throws, sheepskins, and crisp bedding. There are also fluffy rugs and cacoon seats, making the domes quite peaceful, relaxing, and, most importantly, comfortable.

The domes each have the exclusive use of a wood-fired hot tub, perfect for steamy nights under the stars. The simple eco-tubs are easy to use as guests simply need to use the kiln-dried wood provided to light a fire in the firebox submerged in water. The site's larger hot tubs take about four hours to heat up the first time, and they can stay warm for a few hours if guests use the insulated lid.

Extra adults are charged at £40 per person per night. Extra children are £10 per person per night.

Below are individual descriptions of each of the domes.

Holly Dome: This dome is located in the heart of the woodland, slightly elevated and surrounded by trees. It is close to the communal areas and a short distance from the private compost toilet. This dome also boasts its own large wood-fired hot tub, which is available for guests' exclusive use for an extra £55 - £70 per stay.

Oak Dome: Guests can find this dome in a secluded corner of the woodland, surrounded by trees with a view over the wetland and fields. It's located close to the private compost toilet and has its own large wood-fired hot tub available for guests' exclusive use for an extra £55 - £70 per stay.

Beech Dome: This dome's large picture window looks out over the fire pit to the wetland beyond, and there is a recycled tire swing outside for the kids. Located in a sunny spot, it's close to the communal areas and the private compost toilet. It's a great choice for families. It has a small wood-fired hot tub available for glampers' exclusive use for an extra £55 - £70 per stay.

Hazel and Rowan Domes: These domes are situated slightly apart from the rest of the site. They are in an open, sunny spot next to the stream. They share a small, well-equipped kitchen, and they're close to the private compost toilets. As they are close to the stream, they may not be suitable for families with very small children. Both domes have large hot tubs at a rate of £55 - £70. These two domes are perfect for a larger group of up to 12 or for two families who want to make the most of relaxing in each other's company.

Parents can send the kids off scouting for fallen twigs; roasting marshmallows on the campfire tastes all the better if the wood is locally sourced! Children will also enjoy following the trail around the site to the feely boxes, using the activity book for ideas of woodland games to play.

In the woods, there is a bracken den for anyone to add to as they wish, and a recycled tire horse to swing on for hours of fun. Guests can explore the water meadow area with a shallow stream to paddle in and there's even a bridge for pooh sticks.

If there’s a big group, guests set up a boules game or a cards competition. Guests can even get creative with the crafty bits and bobs in the "cozy corner" or relax with a book in "cozy lounge". For more adventure, glampers can hire a mountain bike and explore the stunning countryside, take a family kayak trip along the River Wye, book an exciting gorge challenge, or pony trek with spectacular mountain views.

Campfires are positively encouraged and there's a fire pit in front of each unit. There’s plenty of seating for everyone and the large spaces around the fire pits mean that campfire cooking is a must. Everyone can dig into a one-pot stew or prepare a BBQ feast.
