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.

SLEEPS 2 - 18: Three great sleeping lodges, 3 proper king-size bedrooms, 3 separate twin bedrooms and 3 double beds in a cupboard (our favourite one of all)! Beautiful bedding and towels provided.

RELAXING: The tents have a proper sitting room area, with leather sofa and coffee table, this extends out onto the deck area, with additional outdoor sofas and chairs. Wood burning stove warms the tent.

COOKING: Proper wooden units with butler sink, a wood burning stove which doubles as the oven, a back up electric single hob, all crockery, cutlery, pots and pans provided.

KEEPING CLEAN: A bathroom with basin and flushing loo, towels and toileteries included. A shower room with hot and cold running water, fuelled by an electric boiler.

OUTSIDE: A huge natural playspace for all ages. Boules, cricket, balls and swingball provided, as well as indoor games.

HOT TUB: Enjoy three exclusive hot tubs for your large group, which are available at an additional charge of £420 for a 7 night stay, or £60 per night for a short break stay. Please request this with our Reservations Team at the time of booking.

PETS: One well behaved dog is welcome to come and stay, please note dogs must be kept on a lead. Black Mountain Skies are three exclusive safari tents on the same farm, only one tent accepts a dog.

SECURITY BOND: There is a £200 security deposit managed by the owner.

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.

This holiday exceeded our expectations, it was beautiful and had all the facilities. We booked all three for a 60th birthday family weekend away. The owners were extremely welcoming and accommodating, as well as being friendly and lovely to all of us including the children. We went to the show caves which was fab and went out for a lovely meal at tRead morehe Kings Arms (highly recommended). Lots of space to relax, fun for the kids like a tyre swing and the lake to build dens. The hot tubs were a bonus! Hide

And the cherry on top the hot tub!! Owners are the perfect hosts and are happy to help. The tents are set on a small holding with alpacas, horses, sheep and chickenRead mores. Lovely walks and streams on your door step. Cant wait to go back! Hide

Just come back from a lovely weekend with the family, there was 13 of us in 3 large sarfari tents, well spaced out, in lovely surroundings. The beds are so comfortable and we had everything we needed. We loved the woodburner and would definitely go back. It is a really nice way to camp. Francesca is lovely and made us very welcome.
