A gorgeous glamping cabin inspired by a first-class railway carriage, peacefully set in the heart of the Brecon Beacons.

Lovingly handcrafted and impossibly romantic, The Orient Express is the perfect ‘get back to nature' escape, without compromising on any luxuries in the process!

In fact, the cabin's location alone feels like you've discovered a magical secret. Blissfully secluded on an organic farm, amongst those trademark rolling hills of the Brecon Beacons, you're also close to one of the darkest spots in the Dark Skies Reserve...so the stars will shine more brightly than you've ever seen them before.  

Add a pretty stream close by, complete with enchanting stepping stones, and a wooded area with a secret treehouse hideaway (ideal if you've brought the kids along), and you've come pretty close to paradise in nature.

Crafted from high quality oak and Welsh red cedar, as you step aboard The Orient Express you'll feel as though you've been bumped straight to first class!

Sleeping two adults in a handmade kingsize bed, and up to two children in a mezzanine just above the kitchen, you'll find that the cabin has been perfectly designed to maximise space, with a welcoming feeling of comfort throughout.

The space is bright and open-plan, with the bed at one end, and a cosy dining area for four (that can be conveniently folded away when needed) at the other.  

Underfloor heating will keep everybody toasty on the coolest of evenings, and you'll find the kitchen area perfectly equipped for family feasts, with a full-size electric cooker, a gas hob, and that all-important toaster. There's even a Belfast sink hidden under the worktop, to give you plenty of counter space!

Meanwhile, there'll be no heading outside for freshen-ups, as your cabin is equipped with a stylish electric shower room.

There's plenty of outside space for you to enjoy, of course - how about heading out to the tranquil decked balcony with your morning coffee, and gazing out over the soothing countryside as you plan the day ahead?

You could start by exploring the farm, with its endless acres of greenery, and a river that's ideal for fishing. Or why not hire a mountain bike from the farm instead, and whizz through countless woodland trails?  

You're also perfectly positioned to explore the breathtaking National Park, with its magical caves and waterfalls, and for indulging in watersports on the River Usk.  

(Or you could always meander along the dedicated footpath to the local pub, a mere 2 miles away!)

After another exhilarating day, simply hop back aboard The Orient Express for that unmistakable feeling of natural luxury. One thing's for certain: you won't want to travel in economy class ever again!
