By the Wye


Sometimes a ‘short break’ just doesn’t cut it, and a long break is what is needed, or even a Hay-cation.

Map of Mid Wales

Real travel memories are made when you get under the skin of a place, feel the sense of place, and learn what makes it tick. This brand new treetop glamping Hideaway has nature at the top of it’s learning list, along with reconnecting with the great outdoors and switching off, literally off-grid.  The bucolic riverside location provides the backdrop for the amazing safari tents, camping it most definitely is not.  Four acres of mixed ancient native woodland has been sympathetically maintained, a large section of it is a designated site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and has been left untouched for its long-standing residents who call it home, owls, bats, badgers, newts, dormice and even an occasional otter.

Each safari tent is carefully positioned for privacy, elevated on stilts to reach up into the tree canopy and to make the most of the gorgeous watery views, expect the stripped back joy of your childhood tenting, with all the little luxuries you would expect from a Rare Hideaway … but without the wi-fi.

There’s a fully equipped kitchen with a wood-burning stove, also keeping you toasty in all weathers, and there’s a user-friendly gas hob, a family sized cool box to chill your bubbles, a proper ensuite bathroom with power shower, dreamy beds, and a fire-pit on the deck for alfresco cook-ups.  Sustainability is taken seriously here, solar power, eco-friendly chemical free toiletries and careful use of the natural woodland means you really will leave nothing but footprints.  Take an amble down the banks, even take a life-affirming dip, cast a fly on the babbling River Wye, or just potter into Hay-on-Wye to rediscover the joy of mooching about in a second-hand bookshop.

The Brecon Beacons National Park and the great walking country marked by Offa’s Dyke mean a little exercise will make that sun-downer on the deck with the never-still river at your feet all the more deserved.

Better still, immerse yourself in the peace and quiet under a canopy of stars, and change the pace of life.
