  The Detail...

Surrounded by glorious Welsh countryside these safari tents offer a natural haven for you to totally escape to and sit in a marvellous, peaceful, adults only luxury glamping site. Named after the most prolific wild flowers in the area, Bluebell and Foxglove, these pretty safari tents offer a luxurious retreat. The exquisite interiors include some lovely features, including a wood-burning stove/cooker, beautiful roll-top baths - and a small but perfectly formed farmhouse kitchen (complete with Belfast sink). The heady mix of beautiful canvas, gorgeous stripped wood and elegant interior design makes these safari tents a glamper's dream come true. This delightfully grown up glamping site is ideal for couples or friends looking for a relaxing time in the Welsh countryside, and is available to adults only.

Inside the tent there is a large open-plan kitchen, dining and living area. The well-stocked kitchen has everything you need to make your stay as comfortable as possible, from crockery to coffee (and everything in between - the owners really have thought of it all). With wooden worktops, a Belfast sink and a stylish Welsh dresser, its as pretty as it is practical.

A large dining table sitting next to the kitchen lends itself perfectly as a sociable hub for the chef and any potential diners. Just make sure you pull the doors back and enjoy the picture-perfect view.

The lounge houses a large state-of-the art wood burning stove - which also doubles up as a hot plate and cooker. Perfect for keeping you toasty in the winter months. A leather sofa doubles as a sofa bed for two people. And there are plenty of board games stored away in the coffee table to keep you entertained.

In the bedroom youll be pleased to discover an indulgent king-size bed complete with a sumptuous Hypnos mattress, a thick duvet and heavenly Egyptian cotton bedding. And if the nights get chilly then there are hot water bottles and plenty of blankets to keep you snug.

The bathroom is beautiful, with a roll-top bath, luxurious toiletries and fluffy white towels - glamping doesnt get more glamorous than this!

Outside there is a fabulous raised deck area, perfectly placed for the stunning panoramic views. You can completely relax on the comfortable rattan furniture - and its the perfect place to do a bit of bird-spotting, with buzzards and red kites a common sighting. To the side of the lodge there is a great Kadai BBQ fire pit - its time to flex your survival skills with a spot of marshmallow toasting.

The local area is as delightful as the accommodation. Head out to explore the rather fabulous Powys Castle - a medieval delight complete with impressive gardens and eclectic art collections. The local narrow-gauge Welshpool and Llanfair light railway takes you on a steam-powered journey through some of Wales most beautiful countryside (you can even catch a glimpse of these fine steam trains from the deck of your safari tent). And if the sea beckons then the long sandy beach and pretty harbour of Barmouth is only an hour away.

"We've just returned from an excellent stay at Oaklands Glamping having stayed in the "bluebell" luxury safari tent. What can i say apart from wow what a fabulous bit of glamping luxury! There was a lovely welcome pack on arrival, the hot tub was ready and waiting for us and Shaphan gave us a lovely welcome. We had the best couple of days enjoying the hot tub having bbq's and just totally relaxing. I would highly recommend staying here it really is wonderful!"

"Amazing experience.

My partner and I visited for our mini moon and stayed 3 nights in the gorgeous Bluebell safari tent with luxurious hot tub and seated area around the fire pit.

The tent was like a home from home, it had all of the necessities needed to live comfortably for a few days. There's a beautifully laid out and stylishly designed open-plan living space leading straight onto the raised decking where you can see some stunning views.

Abigail and Shaphan were fantastic hosts, communication was very easy with a direct number to either phone or text. We were welcomed on-site and shown around and they explained how to use fire pits, wood burning stoves etc. They have a clever little setup with an honesty shop for all the essentials that you may have forgotten en route, there's a small shed for your extra wood and parking on site.

We felt very spoilt as the hot tub was ready on arrival, our tent had some little surprises including a bottle of bubbly!! I'm so glad we decided to visit Oakland's as our honeymoon site, we have decided to return on our anniversary and we will be recommending to all friends and family.

This is one glamping site you want to visit!!

Thank you Abigail and Shaphan."
