Glangwdi Glamping offers furnished bell tents in sight of Pen y Fan, the Brecon Beacon’s highest peak. For some, that alone will be reason enough to book but for others there are further temptations. Take, for example, Glangwdi’s pygmy goats. There’s a daily opportunity to meet these little farmyard friends and there are ducks and chickens too. And, as if that’s not enough, this flat field in the foothills is just five miles from bustling Brecon and a short walk from woods, waterfalls and wild swimming.

The bell tents themselves are yet another attraction. There are six; each pitched around the edge of a neat field on a family farm. Woven hazel fencing ensures a little privacy for each camping couple or family – this place is equally suited to both. Children will love the cute pygmy goats and adults... well let’s face it, they will love the pygmy goats too. But they’ll also love the fact that you can hike straight from site to the top of 886-metre Pen y Fan and its twin peak Corn Du. And who wouldn’t enjoy a campfire under the stars, in the shadow of the Beacons?

The five and six metre bell tents are each kitted out with beds, bedding and log-burning stoves. Outside, each has the off-ground fire pit and outdoor seating regular glampers will have come to expect but there’s an added extra too: a private, canvas-covered, camp kitchen. It provides a sheltered place to cook and dine when the weather’s wet and welcome shade when this open field is bathed in summer sun.

On such days, this is just the kind of scenic spot that could tempt you to stay on site all day but, if you’re feeling adventurous, the mountains will soon lure you away. Hiking, biking and wild swimming (try Llyn Cwm Llwch on the way up to the top) are all on offer here. Closer by, Held Wood is a local favourite for walks with a series of small waterfalls within it. The Taff Trail offers well-signposted routes – towards the peaks in one direction or along country lanes to the market town of Brecon in the other.

6 Metre Bell Tents
Luxury Camping with animals!
The campsite was wonderful. Quiet and sheltered and really well set up. Jo and Andrew thought of everything and we’re really helpful and responsive. The views of the mountains were spectacular and the Pygmy goats were gorgeous. Would heartily recommend this to anyone looking for a relaxing few nights in the heart of the Welsh countryside.

Idyllic! Jo and Andrew have created the most magical and tranquil environment. We loved every second of our visit, from the hot tub to the goats! The facilities are beautiful and clean, every part of the whole site has been made with care and attention. Jo and Andrew themselves are fantastic hosts who cannot do enough for guests. A fabulous stay and we can't wait to return!

From the host
Glangwdi Glamping offers furnished bell tents in sight of Pen y Fan, the Brecon Beacon’s highest peak. For some, that alone will be reason enough to book but for others there are further temptations. The site is 2.5 acres. Take, for example, Glangwdi’s pygmy goats. There’s a daily opportunity to meet these little farmyard friends and there are ducks and chickens too. And, as if that’s not enough, this flat field in the foothills is just five miles from bustling Brecon and a short walk from woods, waterfalls and wild swimming. The bell tents themselves are yet another attraction. There are six; each pitched around the edge of a neat field on a family farm.

Nearby attractions

Glangwdi Glamping is based in the Brecon Beacons National Park, a 20-minute walk or five-minute drive from the centre of Brecon. It's also within walking distance of the high peaks of Cribyn, Pen-y-Fan and Corn Du. For less challenging walking, there's a tranquil woodland with soothing waterfalls a five-minute walk from site, a river ten minutes' walk away and the lower summit of Mynydd Illtud a seven-minute drive from site – which still offers spectacular views of the surrounding area. There are also opportunities for alpaca walking, horse riding and canoeing on the Brecon Canal. There are 12 mountain biking routes in the surrounding countryside and Bike Park Wales (01685 709450) is a 30-minute drive away. Hay-on-Wye, famous for its annual literary festival and bookshops, is a 20-minute drive from Glangwdi Glamping.

Food and drink

Brecon town is just a five-minute drive or 20-minute walk away and has plenty of places to eat and drink. Don't miss the Llanfaes Dairy Ice Cream Shop (01874 625892) or, for something more substantial, try the local pies and pints at Brecon Tap (01874 622888). Also recommended are the tapas dishes at the Hop In Beer and Gin House (01874 622092) and the burgers at Hills (01874 622092).
