Glamping in the Brecon Beacons

As one of the UK’s most spectacular National Parks, the Brecon Beacons provides a spectacular backdrop for any visitor to the area.

And what better way to enjoy the area than by staying at Wigwam® Holidays Brecon, which has recently opened to glamping guests.

A total of six fully heated and insulated en-suite Running Water Deluxe Wigwam® Cabins (two with wood fired hot tubs) offer great ‘home-from-home’ glamping whatever the weather.

Watch the sun track its way across Welsh skies; listen to the birdsong and the soft sounds of the cattle, sheep and hens and let your worries melt away. Happy hens also cluck about providing free-range eggs for guests to enjoy, ‘egg-citing’ for young glampers!

This new site is situated within 100 acres on a family farm with a herd of beef cattle and a large flock of sheep. There is also a little stream running along the bottom of the site, perfect for some gentle paddling.

The site nestles alongside Aberyscir Hill, a few miles due west of the market town of Brecon, which gives the National Park its name.

What to do when Glamping in the Brecon Beacons

And there’s so much to do near Wigwam® Holidays Brecon, you’ll be spoilt for choice!

For anyone who wants to bring the dog and escape for a day’s walking, then Wigwam® Holiday Brecon is the place to go.

A wide choice of rambles and hikes criss-cross the area, offering you the chance to really use those walking boots.

As well as six en-suite Running Water Deluxe Cabins and a beautiful location, the site is close to a number of attractions for little people and grown-ups too.

Near to the site you’ll find Cantref Adventure Farm and The Play Barn at Brecon.

Water enthusiasts will love the Brecon and Monmouthshire Canal while the Llangorse Multi Activity Centre and the Black Mountains Activity attraction is within easy striking distance.

If you love the feel of your calves being exercised, then Pen-y-Fan, the highest point in southern Britain at 2,907 ft, is tantalisingly close. The route is strenuous and is great for those used to mountain walking.

There’s also opportunities for kayaking, hand-gliding, cycling and mountain biking in the area.

For lovers of two-wheel travel, the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority has an exclusive Mountain Bike Pack available.

Perhaps you simply want to relax and absorb the varied Welsh culture and history of the area?

A visit to Brecon Cathedral will tick that box. This beautiful building started life back in 1093 but only became in Cathedral in 1923. A building of modest size, its gorgeous setting and peaceful atmosphere will impress you.

History buffs will also enjoy a visit to the regimental museum of the Royal Welsh, which is also in Brecon.

Once the sun has set, then enjoy the spectacular night skies, as this area has been awarded Dark Sky Status due to its low light pollution and vast stellar vistas.

So whatever time of day or time of year, Wigwam® Holidays Brecon is perfect for you! And you can read all about this wonderful glamping site in this recent review from respected blogger Camping With Style.
