Adults-only safari lodges and a hilltop treehouse in mid-Wales, which take luxury glamping to a whole new level.

The busier our lives become, the more elaborate the ways glampers choose to relax. A ‘holiday’ is no longer a city break or kicking back on the beach; and nothing encapsulates the glamping phenomenon better than a treehouse. Once you’ve laid eyes on one it’s certainly hard to resist their allure. And at Oaklands Glamping & Treehouse in mid-Wales – a zero-hassle adult-only glampsite, designed by the husband and wife team of Shaphan and Abigail Davies – they’ve pulled off the feat of building a strikingly modern treehouse that’s as fascinating as it is luxurious.

Oaklands is about the most scenic setting imaginable and the south-facing ‘Heartwood’ treehouse is designed for couples, wanting to unleash their inner child. Inside, there’s a king-sized bed with Hypnos mattress and Egyptian cotton bedding, fully integrated kitchen, a beautiful walk-in rain shower and underfloor heating. The real treat, though, is a huge freestanding bath. Who'd have thought it – an enormous bath, designer toiletries and white fluffy towels, all in your own treehouse? Everywhere you turn there are detailed touches; like the bathroom mirror, handcrafted from driftwood collected on the beaches of North Wales.

At nighttime, the embrace of a huge oak tree (which has been incorporated into the decking) creates a magical atmosphere, while, on chillier evenings, the private wood fired hot tub will keep you warm. There’s little to disturb you in this remote hilltop setting, but bird song and the distant rush of the Banwy River below. And even though you're not technically in a tree, you're right up there among the leaves and branches, with buzzards and red kites circling above. It’s hard to imagine a more romantic place to watch the sun set.

The treehouse is breathtaking enough, but there’s fun to be had in Oaklands two safari tents, too, Bluebell and Foxglove (named after the site's resident flower species). Pulling back the tent flap, you may be surprised at just how comfortable it is. Sleeping up to four, each tent has every mod con you could imagine; at its heart there’s an all-singing, all-dancing kitchen (with a woodburning stove), plus a bedroom with king-sized bed, beautiful roll-top bath, and outdoor decking with a BBQ area. Deepest Africa this may not be, but the far-reaching views of the Welsh countryside – with a local steam train passing and plenty of wildlife – could be a million miles away.



The treehouse has a south-facing deck, BBQ area and wood-fired hot tub. Inside, there's an integrated kitchen (with fridge, oven, hob, dishwasher, wine cooler and coffee machine, plus all crockery, cutlery and utensils), leather sofas, log burner, TV, a bedroom (king-sized bed), free-standing bath, walk-in shower and underfloor heating. Excellent views. Safari lodges have kitchens, too, with a mini fridge and a woodburning stove with a hotplate and oven compartment for cooking. There's a king-sized bed in the bedroom, a roll-top bath, dining table and chairs, outside decking area. Linen, bedding and towels provided in all accommodation.

Suitable For

Glampers, couples, and small groups. Adults only. No smoking. No pets.


The 13th century redbrick Powis Castle (01938 551944) was originally constructed by Gruffydd ap Gwenwynwyn, Prince of Powys, and subsequently enriched by generations of the Clive and Herbert families. Perhaps the highlight is the Clive Museum, which houses treasures brought back from the Far East by Clive of India, the British conqueror of Bengal at the 1757 Battle of Plassey. The castle is also home to the famous Welsh daffodil and beautiful magnolia trees. Hop aboard the Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway (01938 810441) and enjoy a ride on a huffing and puffing locomotive. They boast comfortable carriages, heated in cold weather where you can stand and watch the rolling countryside, rushing rivers, and grazing sheep and cattle. It’s a 45-minute ride each way, and at the Llanfair Caereinion terminal, you can have lunch (with cakes!) in the friendly tearoom, or set off to explore the countryside before your return journey. On the banks of the River Severn, Glansevern Hall Gardens (01686 640644) offer 25 acres of diverse landscape. There's plenty to explore, including a huge lake, cascading water garden, woodland walks, charming folly garden and a secluded bird hide.

Food & Drink

Save a trip to the shops and visit the on-site honesty larder, where you will find a fridge freezer and pantry area full of your basic cooking requirements: sausages, bacon, eggs, bread, butter, milk, jams, cereal, crisps, chocolate, and marshmallows. Just a 5-minute walk up the lane (turn left when you come out of the site entrance) Henllan (01938 810343) is a local pub and restaurant which dishes-up a great Sunday lunch, however you will need to book and it’s only open weekends. As you head back towards Welshpool at the roundabout you will find the Raven Inn (01938 553101) a newly refurbished establishment that serves freshly prepared food to order. The menu changes with the seasons and serves every day from 12pm-9.30pm. For something a bit special and excellent quality you can take a drive to Plas Yn Dinas (01691 829055) that specialises in local ales and fine country dining. The Bay Tree Vintage Tea Rooms (01938 555456) is a great place for afternoon tea, whilst The Lakeside Restaurant sits in 60 acres of lush countryside, overlooking the golf course and makes an ideal spot for lunch.


The Treehouse is open all year, the Safari Tents are open April - December (closed January - March).


Safari tents: Weekends from £390 per stay (Friday to Monday), and midweeks from £488 per stay (Monday to Friday). Treehouse: Weekends from £735 per stay (Friday to Monday), and midweeks from £880 per stay (Monday to Friday).

Perfect Honeymoon Hideaway

My husband and I went here recently for our honeymoon. We spent a week in the Treehouse onsite, and it was the perfect way to unwind after the wedding. Shaphan and Abi made us feel so welcome, and had a beautiful hamper and champagne waiting for us on arrival, as well as the hot tub warmed up ready for us to use as soon as we arrived. The Treehouse itself is stunning, no detail has been overlooked, and from the beautiful kitchen right through to the most comfortable bed we have ever slept on (We wanted to “borrow” the duvet and pillows forever, it was a perfect break away. The scenery is stunning, would certainly recommend a visit to Lake Vyrnwy, and the locals were all very friendly and welcoming. We are looking forward to visiting again!

Stunning birthday treat

Set in stunning countryside with unbelievable views - the treehouse is a luxurious, relaxing and glamorous retreat where all details have been considered. I was treated to a four night stay for my birthday and absolutely loved it. We have a wonderfully warm welcome and enjoyed the recommendations for day trips and places for dinner. I can’t recommend staying highly enough - I want to go back!!!

Completely Amazing - can't wait to return

I booked a short holiday as a surprise for my mums birthday - she was completely blown away and loved every second. It was so much fun 'camping' in the beauty of the welsh countryside, but with a bathtub, full stocked kitchen and warm bed! The weather was very cold, we had snow, so maybe not the perfect time of year to be camping, but it was part of the fun! Everyone at the site was very warm and friendly and made us feel very at home, which was reflected in the level of care and detail that had been taken inside the tent, so that nothing is overlooked and everything is there to make our stay amazing. Honestly its something you have to see to really understand just what an amazing holiday is in store for you at the Oaklands Glamping site! Can't wait to visit again in better weather :)

Lovely warm welcome on arrival. We had a fantastic few days staying in the Heartwood treehouse. What an absolutely stunning place, simply breath-taking with the added bonus of seeing the beautiful sunrise though the mist of the welsh valley. Outstanding detail to the interior Shaphan and Abigail have thought of everything, and with the luxury of the outdoor log burning hot tub watching the sun set. Never wanted to leave. Defanatley will stay here again. Highly recommended. Plenty of places to eat and visit. Well worth a visit to Pistyll Rhaeadr Waterfall.

Fabulous Weekend!

Had a fantastic weekend here at Oakland’s Glamping! What a breathtaking location! Absolutely immaculate and spotlessly clean. Loved the roll top bath (yes even inside the Safari Tent!) and the bedding was top quality. Had everything we needed for a special weekend away, including a fire pit for us to BBQ on. And it felt magical in the evening sitting out overlooking that gorgeous view when all the fairy lights and lanterns came on! Plenty to do in the local area too, with a lovely pub just 10 minutes walk up the lane, although it was so nice on site we were more than happy to chill on the decking and use the cooking facilities at the tent. Shaphan and Abi are both lovely and extremely helpful. Will be recommending to all our friends and family!

Luxurious, relaxing and breathtaking views!!

This is the perfect place to unwind, totally relax and enjoy the scenery and pamper yourself in luxury, we loved it here. The surroundings take your breath away and you have to pinch yourself to accept its real! Furniture and building in Treehouse is high quality. The kitchen has all the mod cons you need at hand. This is definitely a bath with a fantastic view over the valleys. The hot tub is such a welcome bonus and has great views including a bbq area and plenty of outdoor space to admire scenery. The owners have put a great deal of thought into this fantastic place. Definitely want to return. Never thought we would enjoy glamping, but we have been won over. Lots of places to eat very nearby. Hearing the steam train just adds to the experience. It’s worth waking up early to see the wonderful mist in the valleys. Can’t wait to return!
