Features & Facilities
Two cosy domes and five spacious geodesic domes each sleep up to four people, or six in the larger domes, and contain a double or king sized bed and two futon beds with memory foam mattresses. Inside, you’ll find Welsh blankets, throws, a wooden storage box, candles, and cotton bedding. There’s a chimenea on the decking and you can build a campfire in your private pit, or if you prefer more conventional cooking there’s a massive communal kitchen. Throw in a 'cosy corner' with games and activities, a 'cosy lounge' for relaxing in, private wood-fired hot tubs, private compost loos, complimentary wood on arrival, recycling facilities, hammocks, welly racks, fresh spring-water tanks, ice packs and cooler boxes, and dry storage containers, and you’re bound to be a very cosy and happy bunny.
The site lies in the Brecon Beacons National Park (01874 624437), so any route you choose to take will be a walker’s paradise. Nearby Hay-on-Wye is brilliant for rummaging around boutiques and galleries. Or, for something more active, canoe down the River Wye, 5 minutes from Hay’s town centre (01497 847213). You can be as active as you like. Stride a section of the Offas Dyke Path which forms the border between England and Wales or try climbing in the National Park. For the real adventure seekers try gorge walking, kayaking, quad biking, climbing, caving or the nearby assault course.
Food & Drink
There's a fabulous deli, butcher and baker in Hay for those all important provisions. For a contemporary eatery, relax in the Globe (01497 821762) with a Penguin Classic from one of Hay’s many bookshops or try Richard Booths Bookshop Cafe for tasty locally sourced treats. For cool cocktails and stunning vintage and industrial furniture, and household items, try The Old Electric Shop. While Hay on Wye has a multitude of lovely pubs and cafes, you could also try The Roast Ox (01497 851398) at Painscastle for a great value and tasty traditional pub meal.
Satnav will be your best friend here. If the postcode isn't recognised pop in 'Newchurch'. From Hereford, follow the A438 towards Brecon for 13 miles, staying on it until you enter Wales. In the village of Clyro you'll see a brown 'Glamping' sign. Turn right then right again and Cosy Under Canvas is on the right after four miles.
Take the train to Hereford, and then hop on a local bus to Hay-on-Wye, where you can either cycle to the site or Emma will collect you (if pre-arranged).
