Hand-crafted shepherd's huts and yurts overlooking the Wye Valley.

Cadora Woods Glamping is a perfect perch from which to admire the Wye Valley countryside. Positioned atop a peak overlooking this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, hand-crafted yurts and shepherd’s huts provide an ideal base from which to explore your surroundings. A small family-run site with an emphasis on peace and quiet, bring your dog along for long walks and bike rides through Gloucestershire, or spend your day kayaking along the Wye.

Cadora’s accommodation is the handiwork of host, Gerry, who alongside partner, Abi, has constructed the glampsite with an emphasis on preserving and embracing its environment. Each hut and Mongolian-inspired yurt is primed to take full advantage of its surroundings, from the skylight in the yurts letting you admire the stars from your comfy bed to your own barbecue and outdoor seating in the hay meadow. Reclaimed materials are used whenever possible and each abode has its own unique character – the Gypsy Moth hut is a restored horse-drawn cart from the 1900s, and the Queen of Hearts yurt welcomes sunlight through its beautiful stained-glass windows.

You’ll have access to your own private bathroom with a hot shower – organic toiletries are included – and an old aircraft hangar houses a communal living area, complete with board games and an honesty shop. Stop by to pick up everything you’ll need for a dinner at camp, including fresh eggs and home-grown veg, cultivated by Abi in Cadora’s veggie garden.

Cadora’s in close proximity to the best the Wye Valley has to offer. Symonds Yat is down the road, where you can hire out a canoe or paddleboard to explore the river for gorgeous views, or take ‘The Frog’ — the hand-pulled ferry that transports visitors across the River Wye. Stretch your legs with a walk through the sprawling Forest of Dean, and then return back to Cadora for sunset views across the valley's peaks.

Beautiful site with great facilities, having a private bathroom is a really nice touch. Lovely location which is quiet and beautiful. The yurt we stayed in was clean and comfortable and perfect for a couples weekend away!

From the host
After months spent searching for the right place to begin our new family adventure we found, and immediately fell in love with, the Wye Valley. We moved here in August 2018 and began building our small glamping site Our glamping site is situated in a quiet spot at the top of the Wye valley surrounded by beautiful countryside and wonderful walks. We want you to feel close to nature while enjoying great hospitality. We aim to provide you with all you need for a relaxing and comfortable stay. Each of our five glamping accomodations are unique but all are lovingly furnished with a king-size bed and two comfy chairs. A wood burning stove ensures you stay warm and cosy even on colder evenings. We provide bedding and linen, towels, firewood and spaces to hang or store your clothes. Soft lighting in the accommodation is powered by solar panels. Outside each cabin is a table, chairs and BBQ.
Nearby attractions

It's a 25-minute drive to Wyedean Canoe Hire (01600 891376), where you can hire a canoe, kayak, or stand-up paddleboard to explore the River Wye. You can either pay an hourly rate for a quick drip or embark on one of the longer trips, one of which will take you from Ross-on-Wye to Symonds Yat. For some stunning views, you can also embark on the summer sunset canoe trip, available on limited Saturdays in July and August. You're also only a 20-minute drive away from the Forest of Dean, where you can take an underground tour if the Hopewell Colliery coal mine, explore the hidden world in the Clearwell Caves, or enjoy sprawling views from atop the famous Symonds Yat Rock.

Food and drink

There are three pubs along the Clearwell high street en route to the caves. Chief among them is The Butchers Arms, a popular 14th-century stone-built inn specialising in 'stacks' – delicious and sizable burgers in demi-brioche sourdough buns. Further up the road is the Lamb Inn, a former iron miners' pub that's now a beloved and welcoming local, open only on weekends. When you head to Symonds Yat, take the Frog to Ye Old Ferrie Inn, situated along the River Wye and an ideal place to stop for a pint overlooking the water. Street food vendors routinely pitch up along the riverside terrace, or you can opt for a hearty pub meal indoors – booking is advised (01600 890232).
