Trelan Farm


Where in Wales could you bathe outside in a roll top bath whilst watching animals from the surrounding farm? Trelan Farm in North Wales, of course!


The shipping container was transformed into a super stylish cabin in 2019 and is located on the grounds of a 150 acre farm. The stylish interior includes a living area which transforms into a double bed, stylish fitted kitchen and the practicality of your own ensuite with a shower and toilet. You may be in the heart of the welsh countryside but you can stay online as the property has Wi-Fi, it even has bluetooth speakers!


One major quirk making this stand out from the crowd is the luxurious roll top outdoor bath. You can watch the world go by with a glass of wine in hand whilst enjoying the great outdoors. If you want to escape and stay in absolute luxury, this is definitely the place for you. You can find out more and book your stay by clicking here.

By The Wye


Thoughtfully positioned safari tents are elevated on stilts so you sleep up in the tree canopy. The campsite in Hay-on-Wye is cosy, comfortable and environmentally sustainable being off grid with everything running from Solar Energy and generators. The glamping accommodation on offer in Hay-on-Wye is as beautiful as it’s riverside location.


The campsite is designed to minimise impact on the environment in the surrounding woodland, as such many areas have been left untouched attracting an abundance of wildlife. So you may want to invest in a new camera and impress others with your photography skills by capturing the surrounding scenery and wildlife!


They've perfectly combined rustic charm with modern convenient touches, making this a magical getaway for families or couples. You can find out more and book your stay by clicking here.
