by

If you’re looking to go glamping in South Wales then you’ve come to the right place! I know the area like the back of my hand and I’m a bit of a glamping expert, which means I’m well placed to run you through all the best glamping holidays in South Wales. Whether you’re looking for a romantic retreat, a family holiday, or a getaway with friends, I’ve got you covered. So from treehouses and safari tents to geodomes and shepherds huts, here are 37 amazing glamping holidays in South Wales.

1. Trewalter Treehouse

Price per night: From £209 for 2 people

Location: Llangorse, nr Brecon

Why stay here: Let’s kick off this list with one of my all-time favourite places to go glamping in South Wales: Trewalter Treehouse. It’s safe to say I’m a sucker for treehouses and the beautiful Trewalter is no exception. It’s seriously worth every single penny! Inside it feels like a cross between a castle and a church, but with a fitted kitchen with a dishwasher, an extra-large walk-in shower, a SMART TV, Wi-Fi, and more. The luxury even extends past the treehouse because outside you’ll also discover a wood-fired hot tub, two raised terraces, and a hanging bench which would make the perfect spot for your morning coffee. Basically, this place is heaven on earth and if you can afford a stay here, please book it!

What guests say: “Trewalter Treehouse could not be more amazing. The treehouse itself is absolutely stunning. It really does need to be seen to be believed. The location is just beautiful. Nici and John were the perfect hosts. Extremely friendly and helpful and we just couldn’t have asked for anything more. The little treats around the place were so lovely to come across and there were just so many little touches. I couldn’t recommend this place enough.”

2. Wanderoo Truck

Price per night: From £100 for 2 people

Location: Libanus, nr Brecon

Why stay here: Now, I think I’ll start this one off by stating the obvious: look at those views! Sat at the top of a steep hill, among the rolling hills of South Wales, you won’t find many views dreamier than the one from their hot tub. Keen hikers will be in their element as the truck boasts views of Pen-y-Fan and the Black Mountains. And there are miles of outstanding hiking trails all around. The truck itself is a converted horsebox with twin balconies, a hot tub and a huge king-size bed that you could just melt into! Wanderoo stays warm and toasty all year round thanks to its sheep’s wool insulation and efficient wood burner. But the truck is still light and airy with two sets of floor-to-ceiling glass doors letting in plenty of light.

What guests say: “Absolutely inspiring. The setting captures you more every day you are there. Kathryn was a great host who supplied an ample breakfast basket. After two days of a lot of walking, the hot tub was a blessed relief. Also, the views from the hot tub were amazing, one way the black mountains and the other across the valley. We had two clear nights and the star gazing was excellent.”

3. Argoed Barns Geodomes

Price per night: From £103 for 2 people

Location: Brecon, Powys

Why stay here: This dog-friendly hideaway is the perfect place for couples to retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, amongst some of Wales’ best scenery. The Brecon Beacons, Hay Bluff and the Black Mountains are all on your doorstep. So you can choose whether to get out in nature, just relax in your bubble, or do a bit of both! Argoed Barns have two beautifully decorated geodomes on-site, Seren Bach and Seren Mawr. Both are well equipped with a double ring gas hob and a kitchen sink, and a self-composting loo, washbasin and gas-powered shower just outside the dome. And of course, you’ll also find a wood-fired hot tub to soak in with your loved one in the Dark Sky Reserve. Could stargazing get any dreamier than this? I think not!

What guests say: “Our stay at the dome at Argoed was absolutely amazing! The location of the dome was on top of the hill which provided the most amazing views which we would happily soak up whilst sitting in the perfect hot tub! Everything about this holiday was perfect and I could not recommend it enough to anyone looking for a romantic stay in somewhere a little bit different!”

4. Medley Meadow Safari Tents

Price per night: From £150 for 6 people

Location: Llanvair Kilgeddin, Monmouthshire

Why stay here: Fancy feeling like you’re sleeping on the plains of South Africa when really it’s just little old Wales? Yes? Well, Medley Meadow Safari Tents will transport you far from the UK (you just can’t guarantee the weather!). These modern, furnished safari tents are some of the most luxurious safari tents I’ve ever seen. Built on a large timber deck with a canvas shell and wooden interior walls, they comprise a fully-equipped kitchen and spacious living area, two bedrooms, and a private bathroom with a hot shower. Each tent also benefits from electric sockets, cosy lighting, and a wood-burning stove! Yep, they really are that luxurious.

What guests say: “We had the most wonderful stay here. Andy and Mark were very welcoming and friendly hosts and the setting was peaceful and relaxing and felt really authentic for a glamping experience. The canvas chalets had everything that you needed – comfortable beds, wood-burning stove, kitchen, good shower – it was so cosy and comfortable. Outside we lit a fire pit and roasted marshmallows – what more could you want!”

5. The 76er Airstream

Price per night: From £75 for 2 people

Location: Llandeilo, Carmarthenshire

Why stay here: So you’ve travelled to South Africa thanks to the Medley Meadow Safari Tents but now it’s time to travel back in time to America. The 76er Airstream is as cool an accommodation option as they come. Nestled in a private dell in a quiet corner of the Towy Valley, the airstream is set in a peaceful pocket of South Wales countryside. But even if the weather’s not on your side, you’ll feel more than comfortable hidden away in the airstream. It comprises a king-sized double bed, a DVD TV, and a kitchen and living area with a small dining table and sofa. Next door you’ll find a shower room housing a Swedish compost loo and a hot shower, and nearby there’s an outdoor bath for a real nature experience!

What guests say: “What an amazing place! We felt like we were in our own little world. Loved the swing and outdoor bath but just as good to cosy up inside while a storm raged outside. The sound of rain on the metal was a real experience. Well kitted out – we had everything we needed and the decor was charming. Absolutely loved it and would return without hesitation.”

6. Gwdihŵ Shepherds Hut

gwdihŵ-shepherds-hut-surrounded-by-trees-in-field

Price per night: From £85 for 4 people

Location: Bonvilston, nr Cardiff

Why stay here: If you don’t agree that Gwdihŵ Shepherds Hut is one of the cutest things you’ve ever seen in your life, I’m not sure we can be friends. This adorable little hut is surprisingly spacious, sleeping up to four people. However, at only £85 a night it’s still ideal for a romantic getaway for two! Climb the solid oak steps to the stable door, take a peek in, and you’ll discover a kitchenette, double bed, bunk bed, and an en-suite shower room. All of this is cocooned in a blanket of sheep wool insulation and is accompanied by a wood-burning stove, keeping the hut snug if the weather’s not on your side.

What guests say: “The most wonderfully relaxing weekend hibernating from the world. This was the perfect place to escape – we read our books in front of the fire, we played games at the dining table, we cooked our dinners in the kitchenette and honestly didn’t want to ever leave. It also gave us a base to explore Cardiff and the surrounding beautiful countryside.”

7. Hidden Valley Yurts

large-yurt-on-decking-on-sunny-day-at-hidden-valley-yurts-glamping-south-wales

Price per night: From £67 for 5 people or £74 for 7 people

Location: Llanishen, Chepstow

Why stay here: Hidden Valley Yurts is one of my favourite places to go glamping in South Wales for those views alone. I mean, can you imagine waking up, stepping outside, and enjoying your morning coffee from your private decking while soaking up the views of the wildflower meadow? Sounds pretty idyllic, doesn’t it? On-site you’ll find five fully-furnished and beautifully painted Mongolian yurts, three of which sleep up to seven people, and two of which sleep up to five people. The yurts are all wonderfully unique in their own way but they all benefit from the same amazing facilities. I also can’t get enough of the communal eating area with a wood-burning pizza oven, communal BBQ, safari-style dining tent and central campfire with seating around!

What guests say: “I cannot recommend this amazing place enough. We were six adults a three-year-old and a six-month baby. We stayed in yurts 1 and 2, so had our own kitchen, loo and safari shower, it was perfect. Our stay was everything we had hoped for… we relaxed, walked, played in the stream, built a den in the woods, make pizzas, had a BBQ, watched beautiful sunsets, painted rocks and so much more. The memories we made are priceless!”

8. Penhein Alachigh Tents

living-and-kitchen-area-inside-penhein-glamping-alachigh-tent-glamping-south-wales

Price per night: From £100 for 5 people

Location: Llanvair Discoed, nr Chepstow

Why stay here: Penhein Alachigh Tents are beautifully decorated, and although it says ‘tents’ in their name, Penhein is far from camping. If you want a glamping holiday in South Wales that feels more like a luxurious holiday home, then this it. These custom-made Persian tents have a high, domed ceiling and are fully furnished with elegant interiors, comfy beds, a well-equipped kitchen, a wooden dining table, and a cosy wood-burning stove. And bathing is a similar story! With Mandarin Stone tiles, underfloor heating, hot monsoon showers and a Victorian roll-top bath, it doesn’t get much more luxurious than this.

What guests say: “Absolutely gorgeous, comfortable glamping in the woods. Tranquil, beautiful and every detail thought of including a warm welcome, local food products and a luxurious bathtub on site! Would suit pretty much all demographics. The extra bonus is the private toilet attached to your pod which prevents chilly toilet runs! Wish we could have stayed longer…”

9. Celtic Woodland Holidays Pods

the-celyn-cabin-with-decking-in-woodland-at-celtic-woodland-holidays

Price per night: From £28 for 2 people

Location: Builth Wells, Powys

Why stay here: If you don’t want to splash the cash, Celtic Woodland Holidays Pods is one of the best ways to go glamping in South Wales on a budget. From just £14 a night each you can go glamping in style with your loved one. But don’t worry if Celtic Woodland has caught your eye but you want to go glamping with more people because there are six pods and a treehouse on-site, sleeping between two and six people. They’re all special in their own way but they all mutually benefit from a kitchen and living area, beds, a log burner, an outdoor deck and BBQ area, and of course, some amazing views! Oh and if that wasn’t enough there’s also an on-site honesty shop and woodland sauna. How dreamy!

What guests say: “Such a beautiful retreat in the Welsh hills. The pods are so well laid out and with a spotlessly clean games room, kitchen, shower block and toilets just at the end of a short path that is lit at night. The gorgeous little log burner in the pod was perfect to keep us toasty warm and it was stunning to look at the starry night sky, listening to the wind while you’re cosy in bed. We spent some time in the games room, shooting pool with the TV on in the background.”

10. Danyfan Carriage

Price per night: From £82 for 2 people

Location: Cwmgwdi, Brecon

Why stay here: If you want a more rustic glamping experience, Danyfan Carriage will be right up your street! This charming converted railway carriage is the perfect base for a romantic getaway for two. (I mean, I definitely wouldn’t have any complaints about cosying up in the carriage with a loved one!) Alongside the bed, kitchenette and wood-burning stove, the interior is full of quirky touches because almost everything inside has been upcycled. And to top it all off, there’s even a lovely welcome hamper of goodies awaiting your arrival, including homemade sourdough bread and brownies, and locally produced bacon, butter, eggs, and milk.

What guests say: “We stayed in the carriage for two nights over a very sunny weekend in this beautiful, rustic setting. Emma had prepared a delicious lamb tagine, salad & rice for us upon arrival (£20), along with the complimentary treats. In regard to cutlery and toiletries, everything you need is already here, making for an easy glamping experience. The bed, bedsheets and pillows are gorgeous, as is the decor of the train carriage.”

11. Bugail Hut at Hide at St Donats

interior-of-bugail-hut-at-hide-at-st-donats-with-bed-and-living-area-glamping-south-wales

Price per night: From £100 for 2 people

Location: St Donats, nr Barry

Why stay here: Bugail Hut at Hide at St Donats is easily one of the most romantic places to go glamping in South Wales. I almost feel like you’d weirdly enjoy a stay here more on a stormy day than a sunny day. Just picture yourselves cosied up in bed with the wood burner roaring beside you. Plus, the large windows definitely allow you to appreciate the outdoors from inside, even when it’s raining. However, if the weather is on your side, you can enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Bugail Hut from your private terrace or fire pit area. Breakfast alfresco, anyone?

What guests say: “Quite and peaceful stay. Surrounded by nature yet close enough to all amenities. Huts are incredibly clean and tidy. Provided with everything you need including breakfast delivery. Had a great night next to the fire pit and BBQ for tea. The hosts are incredibly helpful and friendly. Huts with attention to details and luxury finishes.”

12. Hide at St Donats Cabans

hide-at-st-donats-caban-with-bed-stove-and-table

Price per night: From £100 for 2 people

Location: St Donats, nr Barry

Why stay here: If Bugail Hut caught your eye but you’re looking for slightly more space to spread yourselves across, why not consider a stay in one of Hide at St Donats’ Cabans? Set on the same site as Bugail Hut, you’ll enjoy all the same scenery but in slightly alternative accommodation. There are three individually handmade cabans to choose from. Each has its merits but they all benefit from the same beautiful surroundings and their own terrace, private bathroom, and kitchenette. And the best bit is that they are all discretely positioned twenty metres from each other so you can enjoy your privacy!

What guests say: “It was absolutely perfect and just what we needed. To just get away from it all and be in our own little space was amazing. The bathroom area was so lovely – we even bought some of the soap as a memory to have in our first home together. Every little detail was spot on, the perfect combination between outdoorsy and modern.”

13. Pantechnicon Powys Truck

view-of-hills-from-decking-of-pantechnicon-powys-truck

Price per night: From £100 for 2 people

Location: Builth Wells, Powys

Why stay here: Pantechnicon Powys Truck is one of my all-time favourite places to go glamping in South Wales for those views alone. I mean, need I say anything else? When you can enjoy those incredible views at sunset while dining alfresco with your loved one, you really don’t need any other reasons to book a stay here. But I’m gonna give them to you anyway (because I’m kind like that!). How does a raised cabin bed, a swimming pond, and ridiculously beautiful interiors sound? Good? Then get yourself booked in!

What guests say: “The stay was wonderful, we watched hares and rabbits in the gardens, toured the lavender fields and watched the sleep and lambs from bed. We sat outside and swung on the swing and took so many gorgeous photos of the scenery. The bread and eggs were delicious that the hosts left and we wanted for nothing. The hut was cosy and clean and perfect.”

14. Fron Farm Yurt Retreat

white-yurt-by-trees-in-field-at-fron-farm-yurt-retreat

Price per night: From £100 for 5 people

Location: Whitland, nr Tenby

Why stay here: Fron Farm Yurt Retreat is set on an organic farm in a picturesque pocket of Pembrokeshire countryside. (Picture lush meadows and ancient oaks in abundance!) It’s also one of the best places to go glamping in South Wales with your family or a group of friends, as each of the three yurts sleeps up to five people. Each yurt comprises a double bed, two single futon chairs, electric lighting, and a wood-burning stove. And outside you’ll find your own decking with outside seating so you can dine and drink alfresco. However, easily my favourite thing about Fron Farm is the wood-fired sauna and hot tub you can enjoy on-site. Sign me up!

What guests say: “The yurt was beautiful, and well equipped with everything we needed to feel welcome and at home. The wood burner kept it super cosy, even when there was torrential rain outside. Plus we had the luxurious treat of the hot tub to enjoy at the end of the day – much appreciated after long walks! The location is heavenly – the farm is peaceful and has beautiful grounds to explore.”

15. Sunset on the Water Pod

Price per night: From £104 for 2 people

Location: Cribyn, nr Cardigan

Why stay here: You’ve probably seen glamping pods before but Sunset on the Water Pod isn’t just any old glamping pod. This gorgeous little pod is set on a lake with the most amazing views and surroundings. Whether you admire the water from your private decking or up-close-and-personal while rowing about, you’re sure to love a stay here. The pod itself is just as special as its surroundings, with a stylish studio-style interior comprising a living, kitchen and dining area, and a double bed. If the weather’s on your side, you can relax out on the decking in your four-person hot tub, and if the weather turns you can cosy up inside in front of the SMART TV.

What guests say: “We had a lovely time and the glamping pod was much more comfortable and luxurious than we could have imagined. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. The hot tub was amazing! We cooked two meals while staying as the hobs, microwave, saucepans and utensils that were provided were very easy to use and practical. Our dog loved the pod and made friends with Pedro the duck too!”

16. Castle Knights Glamping

yurt-and-barrel-in-field-at-castle-knights-glamping

Price per night: From £80 for 2 people

Location: Usk, nr Cwmbran

Why stay here: Set on the grounds of Usk Castle, Castle Knights Glamping is home to an impressive selection of glamping accommodation. We’re talking shepherds huts, a yurt, lots of cabins and pods, and even a barrel! Yep, it’s safe to say you’ve got a fair selection of options to choose from if you want to stay here. Castle Knights is admittedly a little bit back to basics but they acknowledge this themselves. They think that shared bathrooms and showers and a communal kitchen allow you to enjoy the camping experience but with some extra creature comforts. And their approach to all their accommodation is the same! Choose from the silver option where you bring your own bedding or the gold option which includes bedding, faux fur throws and sheepskin rugs.

What guests say: “We had an absolutely amazing time. Being able to explore the castle grounds was fantastic. The facilities were perfect (the shower is definitely better than the one I have at home). We were allocated a toilet and shower to use which were immaculate. The fire pits are huge, and a lovely little tree swing made everything feel cosy by the fire.”

17. Douglas and Birch Hut

coastal-eco-shepherds-hut-on-gravel-in-field-glamping-south-wales

Price per night: From £103 for 2 people

Location: Moylgrove, nr Cardigan

Why stay here: The surprisingly spacious Douglas and Birch Hut is ridiculously cute and well-equipped. With big windows for light and sunsets to stream through, the hut is the perfect place to disconnect from modern life and reconnect with nature. Surrounded by its own gorgeous garden, with a fire pit and a hammock for two, there’s nothing left for you to do other than kick back and relax. The bespoke built hut benefits from a beautiful king-size bed with Egyptian cotton sheets, big fluffy white towels, a lovely bathroom, and kitchen space. The kitchen is also lovingly stocked with homemade bread, tea, fresh coffee, fresh eggs, organic local milk, orange juice, and butter. Yum!

What guests say: “Everything was perfect. I have no words to describe how peaceful and regenerating this place is. Left after 6 days feeling like a new person. Would recommend it to anyone that is looking for an escape from the stress of everyday city life. Clean, cosy and welcoming is how I would describe the hut. Being surrounded by nature and loving animals and pets was my favourite part of the stay.”

18. Oak Apple Tree Tent

oak-apple-tree-tent-and-hut-amid-trees-on-sunny-day

Price per night: From £130 for 2 people

Location: Monmouth, nr Newport

Why stay here: For one of the most unique glamping holidays in South Wales, book a stay in Oak Apple Tree Tent. I mean, how many people can say they’ve slept in a sphere suspended above the ground? Well, you could be that person if you book a stay here! This lambswool-lined pod of cosiness sits snug in the woods of a family farm, surrounded by some of Wales’ best nature. The admittedly small pod is just your snug bedroom. With two single beds and a wood-burner in the middle, a glamping holiday here is more about nature than anything else. But don’t worry, you’ve also got two other separate cabins: one a kitchen and dining area, the other a compost loo and hot shower.

What guests say: “We had a fantastic time. Joe was very welcoming and the place itself was stunning. We enjoyed relaxing by the fire and walking in the woods. The kitchen space was well stocked and they had left us bread, eggs and milk which was a lovely addition. Sleeping in the pod was very special, looking out the Perspex roof is amazing and it’s very cosy with all the cushions and blankets.”

19. Wood Shack

wood-shack-cabin-with-large-decking-in-woodland

Price per night: From £72 for 2 people

Location: Abergavenny, Monmouthshire

Why stay here: I absolutely love forests which is why Wood Shack has to be one of my favourite places to go glamping in South Wales. I couldn’t think of a more relaxing place to stay than this. Waking up to fresh forest air and the sound of birdsong sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? The shack’s interior is simple, yet colourful, and it really helps to aid the whole off-grid feeling you get from a stay here. From the cosy wooden double bedroom to the porthole by the shower to the many items made by the owner from a native ash tree, you really feel a part of nature here. So turn off your devices, hop in the hammock, and get ready to enjoy life at a slower pace!

See also  15 Great Day Trips from Derby You Need to Go On

What guests say: Absolutely perfect getaway from the busy streets of London. The cottage was everything we wished for and more, in the middle of the woodlands, completely secluded. The cottage has everything you need and we had a great time cooking up dishes every night and getting the log fire burning, which made it very toasty.”

20. Seven Hills Hideaway Safari Tents

seven-hills-hideaway-safari-tent-lit-up-at-night

Price per night: From £143 for 6 people

Location: Abergavenny, Monmouthshire

Why stay here: Set right on the border of Wales, Seven Hills Hideaway Safari Tents is a great glamping holiday in South Wales for a family, group of friends, or even a couple looking for more space. Their luxurious canvas lodges are far from basic. They give you every creature comfort of home while letting you be a little closer to nature. The lodges are on-grid enough to provide all the creature comforts you need (for drying your hair or powering up your mobile devices), yet off-grid enough to help you recharge your personal batteries. The cherry on top of an already very tasty cake is that each tent benefits from its own hot tub! Hop in.

What guests say: “Currently sat in my safari tent wishing I had another couple of days here. From dealing with Francesca who is a dream everything is spot on. The tents are amazing, only two of us but would comfortably take six. Everything you need is here. Bathroom facilities are great, the log burner is easy to use and the hot tub was great.”

21. The Hot Tub Hideaway Shepherds Hut

Price per night: From £90 for 2 people

Location: Hay-on-Wye, nr Abergavenny

Why stay here: Also situated right on the border, The Hot Tub Hideaway Shepherds Hut is one of my favourite places to go glamping in South Wales. (And the best part is that it doesn’t break the bank either!) From the up-cycled wood-fired hot tub to the sumptuous king-size bed to the far-reaching views across the Brecon Beacons, there’s so much to love about this place. The interior is simple and charming, but you won’t want to spend TOO much time inside when you can be outside admiring the ancient hay meadow, or canoeing, fishing and wild swimming in the River Wye.

What guests say: This was the most relaxing holiday of my life. The privacy and peace and quiet are great. A real back to basics holiday with no electricity, no Wi-Fi… perfect for that one on one time with the one you love. All the equipment you need for cooking on the fire pit/BBQ. Super comfortable bed for the night. We will definitely be going back again! Just perfect!”

22. Gwennol Cabin

grey-gwennol-cabin-in-front-of-trees-in-field-glamping-south-wales

Price per night: From £82 for 4 people

Location: Capel y Ffin, nr Hay-on-Wye

Why stay here: Gwennol Cabin is another slightly more back-to-basics glamping holiday in South Wales that allowS you to completely disconnect from modern life and reconnect with nature. Hidden away in one of the wildest parts of Wales, the wagon is set in a clearing accessed only by foot, or horseback, or bike. No need to worry about neighbours here! The simple nature of the wagon perfectly complements its surroundings. A great option for families, the wagon houses one double bed and two single beds, without feeling too cramped at all. But you won’t want to spend too much time inside. Get ready to explore, paddle in the stream, cook on the open fire, and stargaze to your heart’s content!

What guests say: “It was such a beautiful place and everything was so well thought through. It was so nice to be completely remote and get back to nature but the cabin also had everything you needed without veering too much away from the camping feel. I loved waking up every morning to the sound of birds singing and the stream next to the cabin. The camp was so cute and I loved having a bath in the tin bath by the stream.”

23. Nantseren Bell Tents

pili-pala-bell-tent-at-nantseren-glamping-lit-up-at-sunset-glamping-south-wales

Price per night: From £90 for 4 people

Location: Llanddeusant, Carmarthenshire

Why stay here: I’m absolutely obsessed with Nantseren Bell Tents because they sit halfway between a traditional bell tent and a safari tent. A more spacious alternative to your usual bell tents, they sleep up to four people without feeling too cramped. Nantseren is also a great option for a seriously big group of people. Whether you’re planning a hen do or you’ve just got a big family, you can hire out the entire camp (sleeping sixteen people) for £400 a night! All the canvas lodges are set up along the banks of a stream at roughly thirty-metre intervals, with a gas stove outside, log seating by the fire pit, and a hammock by the stream. Inside, the story is much the same with comfy beds, kitchens, seating, and a wood-burning stove.

What guests say: “Nantseren exceeded all our expectations. Rebecca and Ceri went above and beyond to make our stay memorable and it really was one of the happiest times we’ve spent together as a family. The accommodation was perfect and every detail had been considered. We booked the hot tub on one of our days and it was fantastic, sitting in it in the night with a glass of red wine watching shooting stars cross the sky will be a memory we’ll treasure forever.”

24. The Charcoal Hut

Price per night: From £120 for 2 people

Location: Llandovery Carmarthenshire

Why stay here: Private, cosy and intimate, The Charcoal Hut oozes romance. This secret getaway for two is set in a little woodland field, perfectly placed to enjoy the peace and quiet. (And most importantly, indulge in some together time!) Whether you fancy heading out into the Brecon Beacons on a long walk together or cosying up inside or in the hot tub and forgetting everyone else for a few days, the choice is up to you! With board games and plenty of blankets inside the hut, as well as special hampers made just for you, hosts Dinah and John go out of their way to make your stay a special one.

What guests say: “Highly recommended. So peaceful and welcoming. Cosy and comfortable, everything you need for a restful few days has been supplied right down to the cats that come down to the hut to visit! We relaxed in the hot tub as bats flew over our heads and gazed at the stars. Not to mention the wonderful hot chocolate, muffins and breakfast supplies.”

25. Beavers Retreat Geodomes

Price per night: From £90 for 2-4 people

Location: Tenby, Pembrokeshire

Why stay here: Set in the stunning Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, near the colourful seaside town of Tenby, there is plenty to see and do at Beavers Retreat Geodomes. Each dome is equipped with a double bed with crisp cotton bedding to ensure a comfortable and cosy nights sleep. If you want to go away with friends or family, you also have the option of a sofa bed, with full bedding provided if needed. Each dome also has its own private wood-fired hot tub, indoor log burner, gas hob and oven, and private picnic table and BBQ. However, perhaps my favourite thing about Beavers Retreat is that they offer alpaca trekking. Yep, that’s right, alpaca trekking!

What guests say: “Cracking holiday, we’ve been before so knew we were going to book again, this time we booked the geodome and it didn’t disappoint, from the huge amount of space inside to the hot tub and indoor stove. All were excellent additions to what is an already incredible place to have a break from busy life. Iwan was an incredible help as always, only a phone call away.”

26. Swallow Barn Bell Tent

Price per night: From £95 for 5 people

Location: Quakers Yard, nr Pontypridd

Why stay here: If you’re looking to get a little closer to nature, you can do just that in the Swallow Barn Bell Tent. The surprisingly spacious bell tent sleeps up to five people, making it a great option for a family break. However, if you’re keen to stay here with just your partner, Swallow Barn doubles as a romantic getaway! Each bell tent is set out on a spacious deck with a firepit, and houses beds, a log burner, lighting, a welcome pack, and tea and coffee. If you want to make your stay extra special, you can pay extra for a ‘Cook your own breakfast’ box, afternoon tea delivery, or a dining experience in the barn. When the tents themselves are so budget-friendly, it’s worth paying that little bit extra for some additional treats!

What guests say: “What a wonderful place! Beautiful views, quiet and cosy. Everything you could possibly need is provided. A handy camp kitchen with all necessities. A communal open barn for hanging out and eating or sheltering. Bell tent is clean, comfortable and well supplied. Kind and generous hosts. We are grateful to have found such a hidden gem and highly recommend it.”

27. Big Cwtch Shepherds Hut

Price per night: From £110 for 2 people

Location: Kidwelly, Carmarthenshire

Why stay here: With a name like Big Cwtch, you just know that this shepherds hut has to be all kinds of romantic! And it’s safe to say that there’s more romance to this shepherds hut than just its name. A wood-fired hot tub, a sumptuous king-sized bed, and a fitted kitchen all come together to create a luxurious and romantic atmosphere for two. The inside really is lovely but when the views from the hot tub are this good, you won’t want to spend much time instead anyway. So surprise your other half to a holiday (or send strong hints for them to do it instead), and you’ll soon find yourself relaxing to your heart’s content.

What guests say: “The hut was impeccably clean, the views amazing and neighbouring goats friendly! There was tea/coffee, fresh milk and lovely cookies waiting for us when we arrived and we had everything we needed to cook ourselves dinner. We loved the log burner, which kept the hut very toasty. All in all, we were extremely pleased with the hut and had a lovely time there.”

28. Kidwelly Farm Safari Tents

kidwelly-farm-safari-tent-with-decking-and-hot-tub-in-field-glamping-south-wales

Price per night: From £110 for 4 people

Location: Kidwelly, Carmarthenshire

Why stay here: South Wales is no stranger to amazing safari tents, and Kidwelly Farm Safari Tents is no exception. However, unlike most safari tents that generally tend to sleep around six people, these safari tents only sleep four, making them ideal for couples or a small family. From the spacious wood-fired hot tub to the king-size master bedroom to the fully-fitted kitchen and bathroom, these tents definitely don’t skimp on luxury. And all this luxury is made all the better by the amazing views that surround you. (They’re made even better when enjoyed from your private hot tub!).

What guests say: “The tent was exceptionally clean and well equipped. Lots of hot water for the shower. Welsh cakes and waffles provided was a nice touch. Peter helped us light the wood burner which made the tent very cosy. Peter also helped with lighting the hot tub. It took a while to warm up but once warm was nice and relaxing. We will definitely be back, thank you.”

29. Lodge on a Lake Cabins

Why stay here: Always dreamt about a romantic getaway overlooking the water? Then Lodge on a Lake is for you! Just six miles away from Cardiff city centre, this is a great glamping holiday in South Wales for those looking to easily escape the hustle and bustle of the city for a much-needed detox. On the deck, you’ll find your own private hot tub, table and chairs and relaxing furniture for two, plus a BBQ area. Imagine being here cooking up a BBQ on a hot summer’s evening as the sun goes down, basking in the sun and soaking up the view of the lake. Heavenly!

What guests say: “Lodge On a Lake was just what I needed. A comfortable modern cabin hot tub double bed kitchen and a shower room while having four nights fishing. Relaxing stay with lake view BBQ area where I took advantage of some food and an hour in the hot tub with my mate kind enough to bring me some supplies. All staff are friendly and helpful.”

Price per night: From £68 for 2 people

Location: Pentre Galar, Pembrokeshire

Why stay here: Nestled within the magnificent Preseli mountains and on the edge of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, you’ll find Y Caban Bach Glamping Pod. This pod is all kinds of cute and is well-equipped for everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. Inside you have power, a double bed and a small table with two chairs. There’s also a private compost loo and kitchenette just outside. But most importantly, you also have a lovely outdoor dining area so you can enjoy all your meals (and some drinks!) alfresco. I mean, when the surroundings are this beautiful, it’d be rude not to, right?

What guests say: “This is a little gem of a place. The cabin is so comfortable and cosy – its superb insulation makes it really warm and sheltered from the elements even in the cold weather. There are some lovely little touches including a mini bottle of prosecco on arrival and a gorgeous home cooked flapjack. I love the picturesque views from the cabin straight out the old quarry on the hill.”

31. Y Panorama Bus

Price per night: From £82 for 4 people

Location: Pentre Galar, Pembrokeshire

Why stay here: If you like the sound of the glamping pod above but fancy somewhere with a little more space, then look no further than Y Panorama Bus which is set on the same picturesque site as the pod. Full of charm and character, this lovingly converted 1968 Bedford Plaxton Panorama bus makes the perfect holiday home for anywhere between two and four people. The bus comprises a kitchen, ample seating, a wood burner, a double bed, and a large futon sofa bed. I’m personally already daydreaming about watching the world go by from the double bed – the expansive windows really allow the views to flood in!

What guests say: “What an absolutely blissful place to stay. Alice and Gilly are so welcoming and have really thought about all the little touches – from Prosecco and granola bars on arrival; environmentally friendly shampoo, conditioner and shower gel in the shower room; and well laid out information. We had a beautiful time, relaxed and re-energised, scritched neighbouring friendly cows and had plenty of fresh air.”

32. Under the Oak Safari Tents

Why stay here: Set in the most tranquil setting, these luxurious, individually designed safari tents are dotted around a beautiful pond in a corner of Under the Oak‘s family farm. With breathtaking views of the rolling South Wales hillside, you really can’t find a glamping site in South Wales much more picturesque than this.

The safari tents’ living areas offer a comfy and spacious place to unwind, with a sofa, dining area and books and games to keep everyone amused. 

What guests say: “So what can I say about this magical, beautiful, stunning little getaway. Lydia and Richard are amazing, very friendly and inviting. The accommodation was absolutely beautiful only beaten by the stunning views around you as you sit, relax and feel the stress run from your body. The bed was really comfy, the kitchen fully equipped and a cosy little en-suite. I cannot praise this place enough.”

33. The Stripy Bothy

Price per night: From £110 for 2 people

Location: Penrhos, Monmouthshire

Why stay here: Fancy a more back-to-basics glamping experience in South Wales that takes you far away from the hustle and bustle of modern life? Is that a resounding yes? Well, The Stripy Bothy will help you completely disconnect and destress. This rustic accommodation for two is oh-so-charming – the question isn’t do you book a stay here but where do you spend most of your time? The outdoor seats and hammock have definitely caught my eye, but inside, the seats and bed look welcoming too! However, the real highlights of this bothy are the modern bathroom and the amazing views. This really is rural bliss.

What guests say: “Craig and Charles have really created something quite magical at Woodlands Farm. The whole place is so peaceful and welcoming, and there is so much space to roam around in, including their beautiful (and unusual) gardens. One of our best evenings was spent on the veranda, watching dusk fall in the utter quiet, with the log burner roaring away behind us in the bothy. We loved the eclectic furniture and décor!”

34. Castaway Cabin

Location: Llanthony, nr Abergavenny

Why stay here: Good views and Castaway Cabin go hand in hand. With amazing hill walks right on your doorstep, you really are set in an amazing slice of South Wales countryside in this cabin. Whether you want to get out and explore, or would rather cosy up inside with a hot chocolate or a glass of wine, these two converted train carriages promise an amazing holiday. Sat in its own little field over a bridge, and decked out with fairy lights, the cabin feels like a magical escape from everyday life. If you want to recharge, this is one of the best places to go glamping in South Wales to do just that.

What guests say: “Really beautiful spot for the cabin overlooking a gorgeous Welsh valley. The cabin itself is very thoughtfully put together, with a very high level of workmanship. It’s got everything you need for a stay that is a lot more luxurious than you’d expect halfway up a hill in the middle of nowhere!”

35. Top of the Woods Nature Domes

Price per night: From £100 for 4 people

Location: Boncath, Pembrokeshire

Why stay here: Geodomes are easily one of my all-time favourite glamping options. I mean, you can’t really find anything more unique than this, can you? Well, if you’re also a huge fan of geodomes, then you’re in luck because Top of the Woods Nature Domes are not only well-equipped but they’re also pretty affordable too. With prices starting from just £25 per person a night, a stay here is pretty much a no-brainer. The domes themselves are pretty simple but that doesn’t make them any less special. Plus, they’re equipped with everything you could need and more for a comfortable stay!

What guests say: “The location is stunning… literally in the middle of nowhere with just stunning scenery for company. The set-up at TOTW is absolutely spot on, they have thought of everything. The outdoor kitchen facilities had all we needed, including brilliant knives (who doesn’t appreciate a sharp kitchen knife!) and the pods were spacious. Woodburners great for warmth in the evening.”

36. Brambling Cross Cabin

rustic-cabin-with-blue-door-hidden-among-greenery-brambling-cross-cabin

Price per night: From £120 for 2 people

Location: Tintern, Monmouthshire

Why stay here: Brambling Cross is a cabin with crackling campfires, canoeing and craft ale all on its doorstep. It seems that the hosts, Ed and Tori, wrapped up all their favourite Cs together in one cosy place. Set at the top of a hill in its own enclosed garden, this private getaway takes intimacy to a whole new level. Beyond the beautiful split stable doors are an antique pine kitchen and a cabin bed which you can snuggle up in with the fire lit, and on rainy days you’ll be thankful that your hot shower is en-suite. However, what makes this one of my favourite glamping holidays in South Wales is the wood-fired hot tub that is lit up by fairy lights at night. Talk about romantic!

What guests say: “Brambling Cross was the perfect escape from city life and could not have been more peaceful and secluded. The cabin was quaint and characterful with a log burner and the cosiest bed. The hot tub was a real treat too and looking up at the stars was the icing on the cake. There was lots to explore in the surrounding areas and we had a great time adventuring up the Wye Valley.” 

37. Sennybridge Shepherds Hut

sennybridge-shepherds-huts-with-decking-in-grassy-field-in-brecon-powys

Price per night: From £125 per night for 2 people

Location: Brecon, Powys

Why stay here: Situated in the north of the Brecon Beacons, Sennybridge Shepherds Hut benefits from glorious views, easy access to the national park and a tiny, tidy home that has been made with a lot of local love. A labour of love for local builder Martin and his partner Diane, this hut was first conceived as a getaway for their own personal use. But they quickly realised that their little home was just too good to keep to themselves. Perhaps my favourite part of this shepherd’s hut is the raised deck it sits upon. With a hammock, outdoor furniture and a Finnish-style hot tub, it’s the perfect spot to relax for hours on end and stargaze within the Dark Sky Reserve.

What guests say: “Gorgeous accommodation in an idyllic location. Friendly hosts and wonderfully hand-built hut showing amazing craftsmanship.”
