The highlights
  • Expect a welcome hamper on arrival, packed with local delicacies like chutney and honey from the owners' hives, as well as the staples you'll need to get started.
  • There really is nothing like relaxing with a glass of wine in the wood-fired bath watching the sun set and the stars rise.
  • From birds of prey and polecats to weasels and flora, the remote area is starting to become a rewilding success story.
  • The wood-burning stove will keep you cosy in the colder seasons, with your first bag of wood provided, and the fire bowl is a dreamy evening activity in the summer months.
  • We now offer an optional Breakfast Hamper (in addition to the Welcome Hamper). Full details for ordering, if required, will be sent to guests with the usual information email we send two weeks prior to their stay.

The detail

Nestled nearly a thousand feet above sea level in a stunning valley, Wilding Wagon is a former railway wagon, now painstakingly converted into a rural retreat. The wagon is also huge inside (it's 35 feet long!) which makes it far more spacious than your average shepherd's hut or wagon. Guests can relax and unwind as this property provides everything that an individual traveller or couple needs for a romantic, off-grid time away. With a deceptively spacious interior and stunning views in every direction, Wilding Wagon is the ultimate getaway for anybody who wants to spend time on the England-Wales border immersed in nature without compromising on the luxury and comfort of a truly special home.

The former wagon has been finished internally with wood, benefits from arched roofs overhead, and is decorated throughout with original features from its former life as a working railway wagon. There is a fully fitted kitchen inside, with a small fridge with a freezer compartment, two burner hob, oven and prep spaces. While there is plenty of space to eat indoors, on warm evenings most guests choose to take their home-cooked meals outside to the deck, or even go on a short picnic to maximise the evening light as they dine.

Despite its seclusion, Wilding Wagon has a rain-shower and eco-friendly compost toilet, as well as, of course, the wood-heated outdoor bath. There is a single bedroom space carved out of the wagon, made up with a king sized bed with all linen provided. As far as entertainment is concerned, spend rainy days playing one of the board games provided, open one of the books the owners have left for you, or plug into the bluetooth speaker to listen to your favourite album, podcast or audiobook.

Days at Wilding Wagon are typically spent outdoors on lengthy hikes with a packed lunch. The area is simply stunning in all four seasons, and guests who enjoy spending time outdoors will love the long sloping valleys, wooded hillsides and clear, starry skies. A great section of Offa's Dyke runs nearby, and experienced walkers can hike it in a few hours, ending up in the friendly and cheery Royal Oak pub in Gladestry. There are multiple other pubs within a five minute drive, like the Harp Inn, with a great selection of local beers and the proud recipient of the Best Pub in Powys Award.

Anybody with an interest in culture, books, and bohemian small towns will be delighted that Hay on Wye is just a 15 minute drive away, with its quaint streets, beautiful architecture and famous book shops. For a slightly more decadent celebratory meal, make an early booking and head to Chapters for the full tasting menu, as featured in the Michelin guide. Elsewhere on the Wye river, watersports enthusiasts can expect everything wild swimming to canoeing at Glasbury.

This was one of the most magical stays we have ever had and given it was the weekend we got engaged, the owners couldn’t have been more thoughtful in making extra special! The wagon is an absolute dream and the attention to detail is amazing. You truly feel at one with nature and the views are absolutely amazing. We would 100% recommend it and would love to revisit someday. Five stars all round!!

We had a perfect weekend away staying in this beautifully put together wagon. It had everything we needed and more. The wood fired bath was incredible. To be sat outside surrounded by the most beautiful landscape, watching birds of prey swooping through the clouds is banked as one of my ‘calm places’. Super comfy bed, hot shower and a lovely little gift hamper. Adam and Liz were super helpful too. So knowledgable of the area and gave us lots of info for walking and wild swim spots. Deffos recommend! If you want a relaxing weekend away, you won’t be disappointed!

Wow, what can I say! We were looking for a secluded setting to spend the week for some much needed R&R and this certainly ticked all the boxes. The wagon has been beautifully restored and is fully equipped with everything you could need, including an ample supply of logs for the fire & bath. The owners have considered everything, even down to the position of the wagon making it so private with only the sheep for neighbours. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t kind to us during our stay but that didn’t affect us at all, as we spent most days chilling out by the fire or relaxing in the outdoor bath (which was surprisingly hotter than expected and actually very refreshing in the rain) The views are just breathtaking, and on our last evening we managed to catch a glimpse of a few stars overhead. If you are looking for somewhere to unwind and reconnect with nature, this is the place for you. Thank you Adam and Lis for letting us share this little slice of heaven. We hope to be back soon!!

I could not recommend this enough. It was the most perfect stay. Beautiful inside and out, with amazing little touches. Lis and Adam were brilliant hosts, providing us with everything we needed and more. Went out of their way to help us to ensure we had the best stay. 5 stars doesn’t seem enough. Beautiful scenery and the best sun set/rise from the amazing outdoor bath. Will 1000% be coming back in the summer!

We went in December, weather was wet and cold. However the Wagon was a wonderful stay, outdoor bath in the cold evening made it even better. Lovely hosts, couldn't do enough for you. Beautiful scenery. We will definitely be coming back in warmer months to explore. Highly recommended. Ian&Lou

What a find! We had a truly lovely stay, an excellent weekend break (and escape from the children!) We only stayed two nights but were sad to leave. We felt we barely scratched the surface of exploring the local area, and would happily have stayed a week or more. The railway carriage is fantastically fitted out, really making the most of the space, with a beautifully authentic feel. The wagon is even cited on rails, sleepers and ballast! There are small but sufficient cooking facilities (gas) and a surprisingly luxurious shower. There’s a cosy log burner but if you do any cooking on the stove that’ll likely be more than enough to keep it warm. Outside there’s a fire pit too to sit round and enjoy the views from. I understand the owners have only recently finished kitting it all out and opening it up, and you do feel the labour of love that has clearly gone into it. The wood stove heated bath is just lovely into the night gazing up at the moon and stars, and you can drop the privacy screening to look out over the fields. Not having tried one before I wondered what it would be like vs a bubbly hot tub, but it was just wonderfully calm and relaxing, exactly what you need after a good day’s trekking. I didn’t miss the bubbles at all - instead you get the still silent calmness (no whirring or hum of a hot tub - just hear the sheep bleating!). We were lucky enough to time our stay with May’s super moon so it was all the better in the bright natural moonlight. (There are atmospheric outdoor lights if needed.) In such a remote rural location it was all the better for the owners approach to sustainability and making things as eco friendly as possible. All fitting in with the owners goals for re-‘wilding’ the land. Adam and Lis, the owners, were super helpful, answering our barrage of questions before the stay, and on hand if needed whilst we were there, but also left us to our secluded getaway. Overall, a highly recommended stay.
