Build family memories that will last forever with this extra special glamping holiday spot. Kids will adore the farmyard location and abundance of outdoor space, whilst adults will relish in luxuries including hot running water, a private hot tub and a king-size bed come the evening. Sleeping 18 in three unique safari-style tents, this property is ideal for three families convening for a Welsh summer holiday.

 

Set on a small family farm, kids will be delighted to be greeted by alpacas, sheep and chickens on the run-up to this home, and acres of surrounding meadows provides the perfect place for young kids to explore. Far from your standard six-man tent, these safari tents are a touch of luxury, each featuring an open-plan living area, plumbed bathroom and three unique bedrooms. Enjoy a family screen-break with this TV-free property, ideal for spending some quality time together playing games. The kitchen includes a wood-burning stove oven and back up electric hub, and dining tables both inside and out offer multiple options for sitting down to eat. Each tent offers a comfortable king-size bed, as well as a twin bedroom and unique double bedroom in a shed! The comfort doesn't stop there, however, as each tent boasts a private hot tub for an additional charge, perfect for enjoying a late-night glass of wine on a chilly summer's evening.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £200 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

Outdoor adventures can be found on your very doorstep, so tear yourself away from the wonderful campsite and go explore the nearby Brecon Beacons National Park. The base of The Skirrid Mountain can be found only 2 miles away; this 2-hour walking route is of moderate difficulty and is entirely suitable for your energetic young ones. For more of a challenge, you might want to have a go at the area's famous Three Castles Walk. Start at White Castle (2.5 miles) and take the circular 18.5-mile walking route, touring Skenfrith and Grosmont along the way. Head to the nearby town of Abergavenny for a wealth of tourist attractions for visitors of all ages. Here, you'll find both indoor and outdoor markets, independent shops with the opportunity to pick up some local produce to take home and a host of cafes. For a night out with all the family, keep an eye out for one of their wonderful local pubs or restaurants, before heading to the town's unique cinema or one of two local theatres.
