This information was supplied by Red Kite Tree Tents

Located off grid, deep in Mid Wales and set among tall trees, suspended like a pendant from a web of ropes in a remote rural location north of the Brecon Beacons. It’s very well-located if you like long countryside walks through forests and valleys. The regions are punctuated by mountains and hills. The coast drive through the peaks to Aberystwyth on the west coast is recommended. For local shops and other amenities be sure to stop at Newbridge-on-Wye. Llandrindod Wells is worth a visit for it spa and museums. A former resort in Victorian times it has retained its look and much of its heritage.
There is also a camping cool box for convenience.
There are no sockets in the tent, please bring a battery pack. We provide eggs, butter, milk, ginger beer and marshmallows, if you arrive before 9pm you can pick these up at the local Newbridge post office.
Back to ground level you will find a fire pit and a timber clad enclosed open air electric shower. You will also find the enclosed WC.

About Red Kite Tree Tents

An innovative tent-cum-tree-house that offers both a unique camping experience and a wonderful location

One Forest - Two TreeTents. New this season is the startling red “Dragon's Egg” tree tent complete with a hand painted dragon frieze and hidden in our own magical Red Kite woodland. Approached by its own fairy bridge with two sweeping wooden decks you should bring your own copy of Midsummer Night's Dream to declaim if that's your thang. Ynys Affalon, the classic original, featured on George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces, a rich verdant green orb, with opulent purple interior,  named for the Isle of Avalon in Arthurian legend. She remains welcoming and intimate, cradled like a barque in the breeze and is approached from the north part of the estate with her own bridge.

Above the lusty shout of a vibrant  stream can be heard the harmonious Welsh dawn chorus. Twitchers paradise, aesthetically rich, green and pleasant makes for an extra special romantic experience, nestled in the canopy. Outdoor cooking, baked bananas, sitting by the fire pit. What's not to enjoy? Piece de resistance under construction for the brave at Dragon's Egg  is the new logbridge-short-cut to the glampaloo. You may see Red Kites and buzzards and owls and hares and lots besides. You are located near the Brecon Beacons, Builth Wells and Llandrindod Wells. Making it perfect for long countryside walks through forests and valleys, mountain biking, fishing canoeing and just hangin'.  You can even invite your friends and keep it private by booking them into the gorgeous Red Kite Barn onl moments away.
