An idyllic wild reunion spot, with cosy lodges under stunning starlit skies, lakes, forests and a beautiful part of the Beacons all to yourself
Please note: minimum stay for this property is: 2 nights low season & 3 nights high season
The Brecon Beacons are wild and they are cherished for it and in the northwest corner of the National Park around The Black Mountain (Y Mynydd Du) there is possibly the wildest landscape of them all. It’s a Dark Sky Reserve and part of the Fforest Fawr UNESCO Global Geopark, sculpted by the last ice age into a place of hidden lakes and rugged mountains.
In the middle of all this natural beauty is Nantseren, where a group of up to 16 will have four canvas homes and some funky communal spaces all to yourselves. There’s a hammock down by the stream, fabulous hiking and biking, wild swimming in plunge pools and waterfalls hidden in the hills and the legendary Llyn y Fan Fach, plus the private hot tub and the firepit where you can gather round at night and recount the day’s adventures. Owners Ceri and Rebecca can point out the area’s best trails, or arrange guided walks from archaeologists and wildlife experts, photography courses or yoga sessions. They also keep the daily farm schedule on a blackboard, so you can join in with feeding lambs or moving sheep.
Ceri is of the third generation to farm at Nantseren and his passion for preserving the land is evident everywhere. Lighting has been carefully considered to leave the stunning skies clear and the tents are off grid, while there is power in the barn and sensor lights on the loos and showers, so you won’t be fumbling for switches.
There are three lodge tents which sleep four each in a double and two singles, plus a bell tent with the same beds. They are arranged along the stream in a quiet meadow, roughly 100-200m from the barn and the parking area. Each tent has its own gas stove, wood burner and firepit, so you can make morning coffee or simple meals without going up to the barn, although it’s a great place to gather everyone together.
There's a kitchen in the barn, charge points and WiFi, plenty of seating for everyone, and games from cards to table tennis. There's also a shower room and toilet for each tent. There are no walkable pubs or shops (depending on how much you like a hike of course) so stock up in Brecon on the way down, then settle into your own private, natural playground, for a few days of peace in a stunning and starlit wilderness.
Each tent has small covered cooking area with gas stove and ice box. No electricity in tents - wifi and electricity, charging points etc in clamping barn. Theres also a shared kitchen in the barn as above - no oven, but does have induction hob
Small honesty shop on site - nearest supermarket 7 miles. Nearest pubs/restaurants 7 miles. Hampers available and pop up catering e.g. wood-fired pizza/campfire meals.
