The Owner Says
Come and stay in our luxury, boutique canvas safari tents for an unforgettable experience. Get back to nature, without giving up your creature comforts!
Our three spacious safari tents feature natural wooden hot tubs, fire pits for cooking outdoors, wood burners, fully equipped kitchens and bathrooms with fabulous hot showers. Comfy, cosy beds are made up ready for your arrival so you can unpack and relax.
Why not round up a few cousins, aunties, uncles and grandparents and plan a real family adventure this year. There’s nothing like a glamping holiday to bring everyone together. No telly, no tablets, no distractions. Just camp fires, food and footie, or if you prefer, just chilling in the hot tub with a good book and a glass of bubbles.
Richard and Lydia look forward to welcoming you to their farm and whether you want to walk, cycle or explore further afield, we will be happy to point you in the right direction.
About Under the Oak Glamping
Suitable ForGlamping only. Couples, families and dogs – yes.
Wales is known for its castles, and there are some right on your doorstep. If you only visit one make it Caerphilly Castle (029 2088 3143) – one of the greatest surviving medieval castles, covering 30 acres of islands, moats and ramparts. Cardiff Castle (029 2087 8100), the fairy tale folly Castle Coch (029 2081 0101) and Raglan Castle (01291 690228), with its angular towers and Tudor-styling are also top spots for history lovers. Once you’ve had enough of castles, try the great monastic ruins of Tintern Abbey (01291 689251), whose beauty has been captured over the centuries by William Wordsworth and JMW Turner. There are countless other places nearby to visit, like St Fagans – with 100 acres of parkland and 40 original buildings from various historical periods, Big Pit (0300 111 2333) where, guided by former pit workers, you can explore Wales' industrial past. Also, Blaenavon Ironworks (01495 792615) and the huffing and puffing Brecon Mountain Railway (01685 722988) are popular with visitors.
Food & Drink
Food hampers for breakfast or BBQ's are available to book in advance, and there's a small honesty shop next to the wood store where you can pick up essentials (free range farm eggs, local preserves, honey, pickles and chutneys). Guests can buy provisions from the local village, which is only a mile down the lane. Nearby places to eat include stylish gastropub The Old Cottage (029 2076 5961), no-nonsense British pub The Maenllwyd (029 2088 2372) and Italian bistro Volare (029 2132 2077). Not forgetting the countless restaurants in buzzing Cardiff.
