Welsh Glamping, Powys, Wales

Welsh Glamping, Powys, Wales

We’ve found the antidote to city stress: a long weekend in one of these eco-friendly log cabins. In remote central Wales, this glampsite levels up back-to-nature charm with luxurious home comforts. Think hilly hikes, barbecues and outdoor hot tubs.

Take your watch off and forget everything!

Will, owner

chimes cheerful co-owner Will as we unload the car into our
perfect log cabin for a long weekend. Set in a remote part of
central Wales, with no phone signal or WiFi, this remote Welsh
glampsite is Will and wife Sarah’s antidote to city stress.

Choose from several accommodation types – a cottage complete
with hot tub, three wooden huts (with more planned, all to be
joined by hot tubs in good time) and a couple of cosy bell

We were staying in one of the huts. Each reminiscent of a
miniature ski chalet, it’s all pale timber (sourced and treated
on-site) with a wood burner and generously proportioned four-poster
bed, draped in flowing white curtains and featuring nifty bunks up
top. A separate adjacent kitchenette is well-stocked with utensils,
providing everything you need to cook up a storm to rival any which
may be blowing outside. This is Wales, after all.

Creating the sense of adventure you get from actually camping
but with plenty of luxurious home comforts – cough Burlington
bathrooms, cough Le Creuset pots – led us to exclaim: “Gosh, it’s
like camping, but actually NICE!” Which really, is the definition
of glamping. So it looks like they’ve nailed it.


The huts are a one-room affair, though there’s space for four
thanks to the clever double bed/ bunk arrangement – ideal for
children, yet probably only if you’re okay with putting the romance
on hold (unless they’re heavy sleepers). High ceilings create a
sense of space along with sliding glass doors that allow you to
admire the great outdoors 24/7.

Food and drink

It’s self-catering, so come prepared – the market town of Builth
Wells is a 20-minute drive away. There’s no oven, but a stove and a
barbecue are more than enough. Fresh eggs are available on


Gleaming white-tiled bathrooms a short walk from your
accomodation have indulgent rainwater showers and normal loos. At
your cabin: a kitchenette, wood burner, logs, barbecue/ fire pit
and outdoor terrace seating.

Within a short walk I can find…

We recommend packing a picnic and embarking on a gorgeous
waterfall walk through the hills. A picnic blanket and a map with a
plotted route can be found in your room.

What about its green credentials?

10/10. We’re not sure you can get more eco than these guys. Help
them out by being mindful of your water consumption.

Things I should know…

When we say there’s no phone signal or WiFi here we mean it. If
you’re trying to WFH or are addicted to scrolling, steer well

Will and Sarah are currently converting a building for weddings
and events. Watch this space.

No dogs allowed due to the roaming sheep.
