Sitting in the very heart of the Cambrian Mountains in mid-Wales, this beautiful glamping site has everything you need for a truly idyllic rural experience. With views across the lush Welsh countryside and beyond to the mountains, you’ll struggle to find a more peaceful setting for your escape than this friendly family farm.
Accommodation is made up of six insulated, warm and inviting glamping pods that sleep up to four. Each pod has en-suite toilet and washing facilities and comes with a kitchenette and dining area. A good night’s sleep is guaranteed as the beds are equipped with luxury foam mattresses. The Wigwam® cabins are also all fitted with double glazing, electric heating and lined curtains and blinds for a warm, quiet and dark night’s rest.
Waking up in the morning and opening up the double-glazed doors onto the view over the majestic Cambrian mountains is a real treat and one you’ll wish you could wake up to again and again.
What you do with the rest of your day is entirely up to you, as there’s a wealth of options available at Wigwam® Holidays Hafren. For a gentle day, read a book while the kids run around the onsite playing fields. Or, for a truly gentle start to the day, sit back and relax in your own wood-fired hot tub.
The glamping site has easy access to a network of walks on the National Trails, so it’s also easy to stretch your legs and take in the sights and sounds of nature without too much effort. For something more energetic, go for a bike ride along the nearby cycle paths that take you around the crystal clear Clywedog Lake. You can even get out on the water on kayaks or by hiring a boat for a spot of fishing (permits can be arranged onsite).
Whatever you choose to do, there’s plenty to keep you busy (or completely relaxed) onsite.
Nighttime is just as chilled at Wigwam® Holidays Hafren. The site hosts regular stargazing events so it’s worth finding out if anything is happening at the time you want to go glamping. The whole area is a designated Dark Sky zone, so even if there aren’t any specific events, you won’t be disappointed when you look up at night!
As each glamping pod comes with its own outdoor dining area, fire pit and BBQ, make the most of the spectacular sights above by snuggling up and enjoying the night sky from the comfort of your own campfire, while something tasty is sizzling on the BBQ.
And what about the days you’d like to explore a little further? The site is the perfect base to get out and explore around and about. There’s lots to keep you occupied no matter what your interests or abilities are - it won’t take long to discover that Wigwam® Holidays Hafren is a wonderful base for sampling the delights of Mid-Wales.
We recommend walks and guided tours through the awe-inspiring Cambrian mountains. There’s also plenty of outdoor activities available at the nearby Brenin Adventures activity centre. Here you can try out pursuits as varied as rock climbing, archery and bushcraft.
Local museums and historic sites such as Powys Castle and Powysland Museum will take you through the ages of this fascinating area. And there are many independent shops, cafes, tearooms, local pubs and restaurants in both Staylittle and Powys where you can buy something delicious to cook on your own BBQ or sit down and enjoy the special treat of having a tasty meal cooked for you instead!
