The Owner Says

Our park offers some of the best rural views that Mid Wales has to offer.

From the Wye Valley to the Cambrian Mountains, we are fortunate to be situated in a truly beautiful area and only a short walk from the medieval market town of Builth Wells and the Royal Welsh Showground.

Our off grid glamping pods have been constructed with timber provided by local suppliers, each pod is fully insulated using British sheep’s wool and are fully equipped with solar panels, kitchen amenities and glazed front panels for you to take in the breathtaking scenery of the woodland and surrounding countryside.

The Bothi has a covered porch at the entrance, which is perfect for taking off boots and coats. It has a 2 sets of box seating with storage underneath, the seats then turn into a double bed for sleeping. We have fitted glazed french doors leading onto its rear decking where you have seating and private BBQ area.

The Bothi is set in the woodland amongst the trees and wildlife and is great for bird watching.

Lovely Autumn break

We stayed in the Epynt lodge for a long weekend, and it was a joy from start to finish. We were met with a great welcome, the cabin was clean and the beds had been made up lovely. Really enjoyed the stay, great facilities all round. Highly recommended for a "back-to-nature" break.

An amazing experience

Just had a really enjoyable stay in Poplys, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a break off-grid. The cabin and facilities are absolutely spotless and Nic & Leigh very helpful. I’d recommend The Fountain in Builth Wells for great food and ale too!

Amazing getaway

Stayed in the Bothi for 3 nights and we loved it. Secluded and surrounded by trees so it felt nice and private. The next closest pod was a nice distance away so it really did feel like you were alone. The hub was nice, with pool, fussball and air hockey, and the shower and toilet block was really clean too. It's not too far in to the town either, about 1 mile away so in walking distance. There are a few nice walks around there too! We would really love to come back and try out one of the other pods, or even the treehouse (which looks incredible!) Thank you for a lovely long weekend away. I will definitely be recommending Celtic Woodland Holidays to anyone I know.

Great break

Unbelievable views of Cambrian mountains, v v clean . Friendly and helpful staff. Bedw glamping highly recommended. First time done anything like this. Will definitely be back

A fantastic base for a magical week of activities in South Wales, but waking up to the peace in the woods and evening campfires just absolutely made our holiday! My boys were very very taken with the bug out shop as well... boys and their toys... looking forward to returning for some bushcraft fun
