Reconnect with nature and enjoy breathtaking views in eco-friendly luxury, set against a stunning backdrop of the Brecon Beacons.
It's a familiar scene. You decide to go camping, only to find when you get to the site that you're late. You now have to put up your tent in the dark, which would be fine...if you hadn't forgotten to pack your tent in the car!
Wye Glamping resets the scene, with a comfy eco-friendly haven consisting of five completely self-contained, hand crafted and cosily furnished, yurts, 2 wooden and 3 canvas all sleeping 4-6 people, with private facilities and containing everything you need to sit back, pour a glass of your favourite tipple, and simply relax!
As its name suggests, Wye Glamping is close to Hay-on-Wye - known as ‘the town of books' - perfectly situated on the border of the Brecon Beacons National Park, meaning fantastic views of the Black Mountains, friendly wildlife, soothing sounds of birdsong and gentle babbling from the nearby stream are all assured.
Electricity-free, with gas fridges for food refrigeration and eco-friendly composting toilets, Wye Glamping is proud to offer a glamping experience that cares for the natural environment, as well as providing you with an idyllic opportunity to leave everyday life far behind while you reconnect with nature, in your own private space.
You'll find a stay at Wye Glamping is a far cry from sleeping on the thin, rain-dampened sheets that are such a traditional stalwart of camping life! Instead, snuggle up under a downy duvet, on a comfy mattress while a wood-burning stove warms your toes - bliss! There are plenty of rugs and cushions scattered around for a homely feeling of relaxation.
Each one has a separate - sheltered - kitchen area to prepare a hearty breakfast before you head out for the day, and later on why not treat yourselves to a warming barbecue, swapping holiday stories as you sip wine al-fresco? The private shower rooms are a welcome sight after a hard day exploring the area, for that ‘five-star hotel' feeling with all the freedom of a natural outdoor life built right in.
The beautifully handcrafted wooden yurts each contain a kingsize bed and two singles sleeping up to 4 adults plus 2 small children (extra beds on request). ‘Bramble’ is situated along the hedgerow, offering wonderful views and a perfect spot for stargazing! Whereas Holly is in a magical woodland setting overlooking the stream. Both have polished floorboards, a warming wood burning stove. We can just imagine sitting round the fire pit and listening to the relaxing sounds of nature. The wooden yurts have sole use of the two luxury shower rooms just a short walk away.
The three locally made canvas yurts, also sleep up to four on a kingsize bed and two singles, with extra beds available for additional children. Each one is perfectly positioned at the bottom of the crop field, sheltered by trees and offering truly amazing mountain views. As with the wooden ones, each of the canvas yurts has a private kitchen, compost loo and shower too. Inside you’ll find the obligatory wooden burner as well as many other features to ensure your stay is a cosy one! These are perfect for a group of friends holidaying together as they are a little more sociable.
One you're all settled in, you might want to tune your voice in readiness for campfire songs around the firepit, as you toast marshmallows under the stars.
You'll find plenty to do around the site - how about a long country walk to start off with, perhaps with some pony-trekking or canoeing thrown in along the way?
Brecon Beacons National Park (featuring the nearest mountain range to London!) is a treasure trove of adventurous activity, with zip-lining, caving and climbing all available to try. Water-lovers will enjoy the site's close proximity to the River Wye, with its renowned pebble-beaches. Why not try a spot of wild swimming to build up an appetite for a hearty barbecue back at the site later on?
There's a friendly village pub right on the doorstep if you could do with recharging your batteries after a hard day of exploring, and further afield, the market towns of Hay-on-Wye and Brecon are a short drive away, perfect for leisurely shopping trips in an enchanting array of vintage stores - with plenty of quirky café pit stops along the way!
There's no need for rain to stop play either, as you'll find a helpful selection of games, books and toys inside the yurts (temporarily removed due to Covid), with an indoor swimming pool available at a nearby leisure centre.
The pretty stream that runs through the campsite is also perfectly safe for children to splash around in - so make sure you pack a good pair of wellies.
Why glamping, you might ask? Well, with everything you need thoughtfully provided for a naturally invigorating outdoor break, at Wye Glamping the answer is in the question!
