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.

A magical dome under the stars
This was by far the best Hipcamp location I have stayed at yet! Firstly, the area was beautiful. It's rare to find such a beautiful stay with a beautiful view. The dome overlooks a beautiful Welsh valley in remote surroundings. The dome was clean and tidy, and Charlie went the extra mile to ensure our stay was perfect. A tin of brownies, fresh milk, eggs and bread was all on the property. Firewood was abundant, which there was no extra cost for (rare in the Hipcamp/glamping world). While staying in the area, we climbed Cader Idris, the Snowdon of south Snowdonia. I would highly recommend this mountain but don't forget a map. OS maps app is my go to. Back at the dome, Charlie had already lit the log-fired hot tub, which was amazing. We enjoyed soaking in the hot water under the stars. This was a truly magical stay! We will be back in the summer as well!

Glamping luxury!
The perfect balance of being in nature with a touch of luxury. We booked the dome to celebrate my boyfriends birthday with our dog and we had the best time!! These domes are absolutely magical and all the personal touches from Charlie were beyond anything we’ve experienced anywhere else (brownies, milk, butter, bread, eggs, marshmallows - and more!!) The photos don’t do this place justice - you need to stay. The pizza night followed by Prosecco in the hot tub was perfect!

Geo pod glamping Joy!
What an absolutely beautiful place with amazing hospitality and hosts. Nothing was too much trouble for Gareth and Charlie and we had a wonderful break with 2 children and a dog. Really appreciate the extra mile Charlie went too as well helping us celebrate my husbands birthday whilst we were there. Thank you so much

Amazing place to stay
Everything about Cae Nant is so special. The dome was amazing, with everything really well thought through and lots of lovely touches. The view was incredible and it was such a relaxing place to be. We loved making pizza’s, soaking in the hot tub, seeing the animals and exploring. Charlie and Gareth were so welcoming, kind and helpful. They made a big birthday very special. Nothing we would change and we will definitely be back.

This place is amazing....
One word describes Cae Nant - amazing. From the warm welcome Charlie gave us upon arrival, to the most luxurious glamping pod I've ever seen (furnished to a very high standard with everything you need to make your stay comfortable), to the little extra's awaiting you - home baked brownies, bottle of fizz, fresh eggs, plus bread, butter, tea, coffee etc - you really couldn't ask for anything more. The outside of the pod was equally as fab, hot tub for two, fire pit area plus decking with picnic bench and a view to die for, absolutely stunning. We would definitely recommend hiring the pizza oven. Included in the hire cost is fresh pizza dough, homemade salsa & all the utensils you need. The kids loved making their own pizza and they tasted lovely. We also had our dog Daphne with us who loved her time there too. All in all a brilliant 2 night stay, we will definitely be returning.

From the host
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 three 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.
