Recommended Stylish Glamping Breaks

*** Any Day Arrival - 2-night Minimum Stay ***

Sophisticated Off-Grid Luxury Breaks in an exclusive luxury geodesic dome. Kick-off your shoes and unwind at this couples-only, pet-free low carbon off-grid dome with PV and Wind turbine power.  Home produced electricity supplies dimmable lights and a spare socket for guests iPads and phone charging.

Solid wood floor, huge log burning stove, bespoke furnishings and that view from the giant picture window! Set amid a secluded cluster of young fragrant conifers on a picturesque hillside in Mid Wales near the Elan Valley.  Savour the earthy liberation of the outdoors, start the day in the outdoor, steaming hot shower with nature all around and the sounds of birds chirping! 

One mile from Rhayader town centre with a choice of pubs, cafe's supermarkets and shops. A special treat is to have a Red Kite hovering just a few feet above your head. Expect to see Nuthatches, Woodpeckers, Blue and Great Tits, Robins and Redstarts, Goldfinches and Thrushes to name a few.  Every year families of Swallows and House Martins seek housing around Andy & Katherine's house nearby. Occasionally a fox can be seen as it sneaks across the landscape.  A Hare is a frequent guest in the paddocks below the dome too. At dusk, bats can appear as they seek a snack on insects. 

Guests will receive free membership to the Greener Camping Club via the owners when booking this structure.  Benefits include access to some of the best campsites in Wales and England. (Probably the lowest environmental impact holidays in the UK) Facilities powered by renewable energy,  zero waste initiatives, they strive for 100% recycling where local authorities support.  Membership also includes participation in the Club's ‘Trees for Life’ scheme, whereby a tree is planted for every Member. Further information is available on their website.
