Glamping domes on a small-holding, with breath-taking views of the Welsh countryside

Gareth and Charlie had a dream; to find a small farm, build their forever home, and then open up its gates for the rest of the world to share. Situated in the idyllic Welshpool countryside, Cae Nant Glamping is the fruit of their labour, designed to give visitors a slice of country life. It's a glamping site set on a smallholding with horses, sheep and two spacious and well-furnished domes, sitting alongside Glyndŵr’s Way National Trail.

The two domes, Cader Idris and Ceder Berwyn, give the picturesque surrounding farmland a run for its money with their inveigling design. These retro-futuristic bubbles sit atop decking with picnic tables, a fire pit, hammocks, and a wood-fired pizza oven (with homemade dough!), available if you want it. They are spacious and well-equipped with a hot shower and toilet, but still allow you to feel immersed in the natural surroundings with huge windows to the great outdoors. You can even go to sleep with a view of the stars thanks to their skylights. They are ideal for couples or families (Cader Idris sleeps up to eight while Ceder Berwyn is equipped for six), and furrier family members can also join in as Cae Nant Glamping welcomes well-behaved dogs, with bowls and towels available upon request.

Though the only sounds you'll hear from your dome are the crackling of the fire in its log-burning stove or the sound of the wind rolling across the Welsh hills, Cae Nant is just a 10-minute drive from Llanfyllin. Bordered by the Cain and Abel rivers, this scenic market town serves as a central hub for those exploring the nearby areas, and regularly celebrates its local artisans with open studio festivals, including August's Sioe Llanfyllin Show, a fixture of the area for centuries (sadly not on in 2021). A farmers' market also pops up every Thursday, where locals sell their produce and wares.

Grab a spot of lunch from the market or one of the town's plethora of pubs and eateries, before heading back to the campsite for a ramble (or cycle — two bikes can be borrowed by guests). The Ann Griffiths Walk offers a good local route: a seven-mile trek famed for its diverse river valley, meadow, and woodland landscapes, along with its views across the River Vyrnwy. Head back home to your dome and cook up a wood-fired pizza for your family with the site's hireable pizza oven, or if you're staying in Cader Idris, conclude your evening with a dip in its wood-fired hot tub. As you're watching the wildlife go by from your enviable seat in the tub, it's easy to see why Gareth and Charlie want to stay here forever.

The Owner Says

We have lived and loved the country life for as long as we can remember. We have been fortunate enough to find our own small piece of the Welsh countryside and we would love to share it with you. We had a dream, to find a small farm, build a forever home, add a few animals and create the most luxurious, relaxing and personal glamping experience we could. We have two comfortable and spacious domes with everything you will need for a fun and relaxing break. We're a small family run site set amongst the beautiful countryside and stunning scenery of mid wales. In the quiet solitude of the Welsh hills, you could be fooled into thinking you were a thousand miles from civilisation, but we are just an hour’s drive from the historic market town of Shrewsbury and half an hour from the border towns of Oswestry and Welshpool. The thriving market town of Llanfyllin is just ten minutes down the road making us easily accessible and well placed for local amenities.

Social Distancing Measures

Social distancing measures will be enforced. Hand sanitising facilities will be available. All domes are self contained, there are no shared facilities.
