Onnenfawr Glamping

UK Wales Mid Wales Powys

Onnenfawr Farm, Crai, Sennybridge, Brecon, LD3 8PY

Cosy shepherd's huts in the Brecon Beacons National Park with wonderful valley views, hospitable hosts and excellent footpaths on the doorstep

Megan the dog is often the first to greet you when you arrive at this Brecon Beacons glamping site. She’s not exactly the vision of a traditional sheepdog – a friendly and fluffy little Bichon Frise, she’d more likely get lost among white sheep then be found herding them – but she’s a key member of the Davis clan and roams the 330-acre organic valley with them just have family dogs have done for centuries. Today the farm approaches its fourth generation and, along with the old constants – a beef herd and the flock of Welsh sheep – there are some modern twists here, too. Not least the latest addition to the land; a trio of beautiful shepherd’s huts perfect for glamping in the hills.

Set in a meadow just beyond a couple of beautiful stone farm lodges and barns, the huts offer a beautiful and tasteful place to stay among the Brecon Beacons landscape. From outside they are a picture of tradition; great iron wheels sit beneath wonderful wooden walls and the curvature of the corrugated wood. Yet, within, the three abodes are each a thoroughly modern affair. There is under-floor heating, a plush en suite bathroom with a powerful shower and a fully equipped kitchen area with its own fridge and oven. There’s room for three adults (or two adults and two kids) in the fitted double beds, while, from the deck outside, the views are dazzling: Before you, the meadow drops gently away towards the River Crai, flowing quietly through the trees, while beyond the valley side climbs away into a long, green ridge, divided up by hedges and mature trees.

If you’re a keen walker then the national park location offers ample hiking opportunities, while mountain bikers will find the farm pleasingly equipped with a hose for washing down your gear at the end of the day. Those seeking a more casual pace, meanwhile, can explore the national show caves at Day y Ogof, six miles away. Learn your stalactites from your stalagmites and marvel at the spectacular shapes and formations that the River Llynfell has hollowed here beneath the ground. When darkness falls, though, you can enjoy one of the areas best attractions of the farm. Crai Valley Glamping sites in the heart of the Brecon Beacons International Dark Sky Reserve, with some of the most dazzling stars to be seen anywhere in the UK. Light the log-burner, cosy up in your hut and enjoy the spectacle. It’s like an extra glamping gift from nature.

The Owner Says

Crai Valley Glamping is set on a 330 acre organic valley in the Brecon Beacons scenic countryside allowing guests to unwind and relax and simply enjoy the natural beauty and views of the surrounding landscape. The River Crai runs at the bottom of the meadow where the Shepherd huts are located bringing all kinds of wildlife. Try out some trout fishing or step across the stepping stones in the river and explore a secret island where you would be able to have a picnic or simply escape from it all with a blanket and a good novel.

A beautiful setting and a perfect place to stay.

The shepherds hut is modern and cosy. It is designed beautifully with great quality workmanship. It was clean and well equipped. Everything had been thought of to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. The hosts were so friendly and heloful. The view from our hut across the field and onto the hills was spectacular and I particularly enjoyed looking at the view from the window at the foot of the bed. It was idyllic. We didn't want to leave and definitely hope to return.

Quiet, beautiful.

Beautifully constructed and thought out unit finished in solid oak and with tasteful decorations. Luxury toilet and shower - not your usual glamping experience. Bed was super comfy and you can open the shuttered windows to look out over the valley at nothing but green pleasantness (with the odd sheep dotted about). It was so quiet here that I took the battery out of the clock as it seemed impossibly loud! Woke to birdsong and the sun streaming through the blinds. This place really is in a league of it's own and we will be back asap. Thankyou Cerri for a wonderful weekend.

Great accommodation, amazing luxury glamping

We’ve just returned from a 3 night stay at the flying Scotsman. 2 adults, 2 children and a dog. I’m not one for camping and this was glamping at another level, total luxury in the countryside, everything you could need and plenty of space (photos make it seem smaller). Perfect location for exploring the outdoors, we will be booking again and recommend

Perfect!!!

We have just returned from our first visit here. The views are beautiful! Even on a drizzly day we ventured out to discover what was around us and we weren't disappointed. The Flying Scotsman itself was amazing. The facilities were 5* for glamping. There was everything we needed and more, the owners even provided some board games for is when we mentioned it. Really couldn't recommend it enough. We loved it and will definitely be back.
