Our stay over the new year was jus what we needed after a busy Christmas time for me and my boyfriend to chill before a busy 2024, the tent itself was excellent very comfortable with everything you need. Although it rained the whole duration of our stay it didn’t ruin it but we were unable to use the hot tub and fire pit which was a shame but would love to go in summer and properly enjoy the facilities you pay for. The toilet and shower facilities were close by and clean enough for a camp site. Would definitely recommend staying here in the peaceful setting as a lovely couple of days away.
Would highly recommend

We loved our peaceful stay in the cabin. The cabin was beautiful and in such a lovely location. We especially loved the hot tub on a starry night. Would highly recommend.

I booked this as a surprise getaway for my partner. We were blown away by everything. The cleanliness and comfort of the tent was fantastic and the place was kitted out with everything you’d need. Our sons did not want to come home at all, we visited Elan Valley which by the way is breathtaking. We visited Rhayader and went for a delicious breakfast in the Lost Arc. Highly recommend these tents and the surrounding attractions. Thank you for having us. Core memories were made.
Lovely stay & amazing area
