Named Wy y Ddraig, Dragon’s Egg in Welsh, we’re delighted to welcome this second tree tent in to our collection. It joins its sister pod in a tranquil woodland setting, high up amongst the pine trees with a gently trickling stream below, in the heart of the peaceful Welsh countryside near Builth Wells, Powys.

Access your Tree Tent via a wooden bridge, when you enter you will feel the warmth of the wood burner, keeping you toasty throughout your stay (an initial supply of logs is provided). The pod is lined with lambs wool which will keep you insulated throughout the colder months. We have furnished the pod with comfortable double bed with bed linen supplied. For more room during the day you can fold the bed up into a large sofa.

Back over the bridge leads you to your own private decking where you will find your own outdoor kitchen with a cooking and sitting area, create some tasty dishes or simply make a cup of tea or coffee in the morning. We provide you with kettle, crockery, cutlery cafetiere. You will also find a compact two burner gas hob and a sink, with hot and cold water. 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. AND newly-landed this season is the startling Conker, a completely spherical UFO-type pod set high up above our own magical Red Kite woodland and enjoying breathtaking views of the surrounding moorlands.

Approached by its own fairy bridge, the Dragon's Egg Tree Tent (the red one) has two sweeping wooden decks so you should bring your own copy of Midsummer Night's Dream to declaim if that's your thang. Ynys Affalon (the green one) is the classic original, featured on George Clarke’s 'Amazing Spaces', a rich verdant green orb, with opulent purple interior,  named after 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 via her own private bridge.

Above the lusty shout of a vibrant  stream you can hear the harmonious Welsh dawn chorus. A twitcher's paradise, aesthetically rich, green and pleasant, this very special spot makes for an extra-special romantic experience, nestled in the canopy. Outdoor cooking, baked bananas, toasted marshmallows...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 log and rope bridge-short-cut to the glampaloo. It isnt only sheep here: you may see red kites and buzzards and owls and hares and wild rabbits and lots besides. You are located within striking distance of the Brecon Beacons and Hay-on-Wye (the world-famous town of books), and the western coastline of Wales, and close to Builth Wells and Llandrindod Wells. It is perfect for long countryside walks through forests and valleys, past waterfalls and mighty reservoirs, and for 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 only moments away across the wooded valley.

Glamping Site Facilities

Inside each tree tent there is a log burner, lights, a sofa that converts into a compact fish-eye-shaped double bed and prices include everything from tea towels and bath towels to bedding. There are logs for the fire and a mini welcome hamper when you arrive. Outside there are chairs and a table on the raised deck, plus a WC hut in the woods and a hot outdoor shower. Campfires and BBQs are allowed in the fire pit provided and there is a camping gas stove and a pretty well-equipped outdoor "kitchen" for your use.
