  • We have 7 geodomes set on wooden platforms, each with private fire pits and stylish wood burning stoves that can be stoked up to keep you toasty overnight, and on those sometimes chilly summer evenings.

    Keep warm under the thick feather duvets, contemporary Welsh blankets, sheepskins, and crisp bedding, plus there are cacoon seats and fluffy rugs. It’s peaceful, relaxing and comfortable.

    The 2 smaller domes are 5m in diameter and comfortably sleeps four adults, two on a double bed and two on roll out futon mattress. All beds have memory foam toppers for extra warmth and comfort. There's a chiminea on the deck that's great for toasting marshmallows or even your toes after an adventurous day out.

    The spacious domes are 6m in diameter, 4m high. They sleep up to 4 adults comfortably and 5 or 6 if you’ve got the kids with you. Two sleep on a comfy king size bed, made from locally sourced wood and the extras on raised futon beds. The domes each have exclusive use of a wood-fired hot tub, perfect for steamy nights under the stars. 

    There’s a fully kitted, shared camp kitchen, a cosy corner and a cosy lounge with everything you need to make the most of time out, chilling out and hanging out.

    We keep our impact on the environment to a minimum. There are compost loos and washrooms in the woods, plus eco, wood fired showers with a canopy view. Alternatively, use the new washroom and biomass boiler heated power showers

    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. All dig into a one-pot stew or prepare a BBQ feast.


    We’ve thought of everything to get you back to nature in style.

    There’s something to keep everyone entertained whatever their age. Children will enjoy following the trail round the site to the feely boxes, swings and den and using the activity book for ideas of woodland games to play. If there’s a big group of you set up a boules game, a table tennis championship, a cards competition or get creative with the crafty bits and bobs in the cosy corner.

    We look forward to seeing you soon.


  • Five of the domes (Holly, Oak, Ash, Willow 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.

    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: Located in a sunny spot, this dome is close to the communal areas and the private compost toilet. It's a great choice for families. It has a large 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 have large hot tubs available for exclusive use for an extra £55 - £70 per stay. 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.

    Ash and Willow Domes: These are smaller, Cosy domes, both located in the woodland with easy acces to the communal facilities, although Ash is set in a more private corner of the site.  Both domes are perfect for couples or small families, and come with their own exclusive hot tubs for an extra £35 - £50 per stay.

  • This glamping site is open from Mar 27 to October 12.


    Prices range from £70 to £160 per unit per night depending on the time of year.

    Low season is from Mar 27 to Apr 02, Apr 17 - May 07 and Oct 02 to Oct 12. Mid season is from May 11 to May 21 and Sept 04 to Oct 01. High season is Apr 03 to Apr 16, May 08 to May 10, and May 31 to Jul 16. Peak season is May 22 to May 30 and July 17 to Sept 03.

    There is a small extra charge if guests would like to use the hot tubs that come with each dome: (£55 - £70) for a large, and (£35 - £50) for a small. Guests will be able to choose this as an option when they make a booking.

  • The kitchens are equipped with traditional enamel crockery, pots, pans, cutlery and cooking utensils, cool boxes and storage boxes for dried food. There's also plenty of undercover seating for everyone or take a picnic blanket and enjoy the sunshine. There are eco friendly compost loos, wood fueled showers in the woods and there's a wet room a short walk away!

    Cosy corner is an ideal place for the kids on a rainy day to get creative, play games or make use of our book swap facility.

    The Cosy Lounge allows for communal socialising, snuggling up by the woodburner with a book or perusing the local maps and information.

  • This glamping site is set on four acres of woodland and water meadow. The units are all well spaced out. The nearest town is Hay on Wye on the England/Wales border, and as it is famous for its second hand bookshops, it is the ideal town for a leisurely stroll.

    Located on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park with its dramatic scenery and stunning walks, hike up the highest mountain in South Wales, Pen Y Fan. There are plenty of outdoor activities to keep guests occupied if they are feeling adventurous.

    There are activities in abundance in the area and we can recommend local companies who can arrange a package to suit all abilities and levels from thrill seekers to the more sedate. To make life really easy some activities are available on site. Just ask for details.

    Try a guided group bike ride, leisurely canoe along the River Wye, stroll through the local countryside or a hike up the Brecon Beacons or Black Mountains.

    Or for total relaxation borrow a book, lie in the hammock and chill.




    The spacious domes sleep up to 6 while the smaller ones up to 4 so the maximum capacity is 26 in the woodland and 12 stream side. Ideal for group gatherings of families or friends. We can provide travel cots, high chairs and fireguards for children free of charge.

    We look forward to seeing you.
