  • There is no fence around the pond and the two smaller cabins are close- families with younger children ought to take care.
  • Dogs are welcome but must be kept out of the beds, and controlled around the livestock as this is a working farm.

  • There is a fire-wood store with an honesty box system, to power the hot-tub and wood-burning stoves.

  The Detail...

Tucked away on the corner of a family-run working farm, Under the Oak Glamping is a collection of cabin-style self-catering safari tents for the individual, couple, family or friend-group who like to spend time in the rugged beauty of nature without compromising on amenities. With a choice of four person or six person tents, Under the Oak Glamping is the perfect spot for returning enthusiasts or first time parties looking to explore the well-kept secret of South Wales.

Each of the three glamping shelters has a private decking, and is heated by a central wood-burning stove, guaranteed to keep you cosy whatever the month. The smaller tent size contains a Welsh box bed, ideal for couples, and a super-comfortable sofa which converts into a bed suitable for both children and adults. The larger tent is set further back from the waters edge, with its own small space for running around, relaxing, or simply being outside. This larger tent, Dan y Ffawydden or Under the Beech is set up with two sets of doubles and a bunk bed, accommodating a number of different guest configurations. It also has its very own private hot tub, heated within an hour using local wood, and free from caustic chemicals.

While youll be experiencing the joys of being off the beaten track, alone with your friends, family or like-minded fellow campers, you wont be missing out on the comforts and luxuries of the twenty first century. Each tent has a full kitchen, offering not just the facilities required to cook up a feast for hungry campers, but also providing salt and pepper and basic herbs to start you off. Choose between the inside two ring burner or head outside and prepare an al-fresco feast using the fire pit as a grill. Your plumbing is also top of the range, with a bathroom which contains a hot shower, flushing toilet and standard basin, as well as fluffy white towels.

Under the Oaks Glamping is a magical and restorative spot, where everyone from urban youngsters on their first camping trip to seasoned outdoors enthusiasts returning to the valleys and beaches of South Wales will find themselves in for a treat. The atmosphere is fantastic whatever the weather and the central pond makes for a glamping experience you simply wont find anywhere else. Youre ideally located for a day trip to Cardiff should you feel the need, while the hidden gem beaches of South Wales beckon, along with the majestic and dramatic Brecon Beacons National Park.
