*** Min 2-night stay, any day arrival ***

This is just the most spectacular group getaway for families and friends seeking quality time together. Set in 25 acres of bluebells woods and meadows there is so much space for you to explore.

This location near the Welsh borders makes this an easy to get to group retreat. The site has been heralded by many UK newspapers and magazines. The Lonely Planet featured the wooden cabin as an amazing place to stay 'in the trees' and The Times featured the site in its '20 best glamping sites in the UK' 

The site contains 2 secluded yurts, 'Eilian' and 'Seren', and a boutique wooden cabin. 

Set under designated dark skies, this is a great place to plan some stargazing. Fingers crossed that one of you in your group gathering has a telescope, otherwise, we highly recommend renting one.  

This majestic 25-acre estate on the Welsh borders is a place where you can truly escape the modern-day world and immerse yourself in a true natural haven - a place to relax, unwind, and simply enjoy the simple pleasures of mother nature.

The 3 stunning properties are perfectly furnished with hand made furniture paying tribute to the wood making courses available on site.

Communal space is naturally a must for a family or group gathering. A charming communal space has been built in the woods, 5 mins from the wooden cabin, and 1 min from the 2 yurts.  The woodland Kitchen offers ample cooking facilities and makes a lovely communal space with board games, books and local guides to plan your adventures. The shower block is next to this building.

Guests can also participate in a variety of courses, including Green Woodworking, Birdwatching, and Ring-Making. Further details of the courses can be found below. If you would like to discover more about the activities, please liaise with the owner after booking or call to discuss your options.

Kids will love playing in the brook that meanders through the woods. 

This glamping site is well placed to visit Hay on Wye and Ludlow - around 20 miles away - two of the UK's most beautiful towns. These cultural hotspots are renowned for their great collection of independent shops, award-winning eateries, and historical buildings. What's more, outings to the Shropshire Hills, Wye Valley, Brecon Beacons and Snowdonia are also within easy reach, creating a variety of options for more adventurous groups.

This is truly a place to relax and unwind in natural splendour.

What could be more romantic than spending a weekend in a luxurious yurt or treetop cabin nestled on the edge of ancient woodland and coming home with your very own handmade wedding rings?  Work together to design unique silver or gold rings which you will make over a two-day period in the beautiful woodland workshop. Private courses by appointment.

You'll learn how to bend an arm bow from a single piece of steamed ash and how to fashion a comfortable seat from a plank of elm or beech using an adze and travisher. After five days you'll come away with a beautiful piece that will last for generations.

The Woodland Trust's Nature Detectives website also has some great suggestions for family activities in the woods. In the event of rain, there are plenty of books, playing cards and board games in the communal kitchen area.

The area is also in a dark sky site - there is an observatory just up the road in Knighton - so bring a telescope if you are a keen stargazer.
