Matilda's Field: Close up view of Brig y Bryn

General

  • Remote forest safari tents 10 miles from Snowdonia National Park
  • A 20-minute drive from Lake Vyrnwy; 45 minutes to Bala and Dolgellau
  • Private facilities including kitchen, hot shower and eco-toilet

Roads, noise, other people, the modern world – whatever you want to get away from, plan your escape route to Mid Wales, and Matilda's Field in Dyfnant Forest.

All around is one of the few areas in the UK you can happily describe as remote wilderness: the edge of Snowdonia National Park is 10 miles to the west, and the dark-sky expanse of the Cambrian mountains is to the south. Even the nearest road is three and a half miles away.

But just because you’re getting away from it all, that doesn’t mean you have to bring all your home comforts with you. The large safari tents are kitted out with bedrooms, kitchen facilities, hot shower, sink, eco toilet and a cool little urinal. There’s also a covered veranda to extend the comfy indoor-outdoor living vibe (and keep any mucky wellies and walking boots out of the way).

On the site, there’s plenty of space to walk, run, play or relax and you’re welcome to bring your dog along for the fun. Dyfnant Forest is criss-crossed by trails for walkers to explore, and the Dyfnant Rainbow Trails have been especially designed for horse riders. 20 minutes’ drive away is Lake Vyrnwy, home to a distinctive fairy-tale castle water tower and a hub for walking, wildlife watching, stargazing and all sorts of other outdoor activities.

Because Matilda’s Field is so wonderfully remote, you’ll want to bring food and drink enough for your whole stay. There is, however, a small convenience store and petrol station about 10 minutes’ drive away if you do need to stock up on necessities.

Local attractions

The main reason a lot of people choose a holiday somewhere like Matilda’s Field is to spend lots of time out in the open. Bring a map, don your walking boots and there’ll be no stopping you. There are opportunities to get active all around, but Lake Vyrnwy (20 minutes’ drive) is the nearest place where it’s all available in one convenient spot. Cycle hire, canoeing, sailing, windsurfing, abseiling, archery, shooting, fishing – take your pick.

Further afield, the historic market towns of Machynlleth, Dolgellau and Bala are all about 45 minutes’ drive away through some gorgeous natural scenery, and there are more great walks to be had around each on as well.

And how about filling your lungs with fresh sea air instead of fresh mountain air for a day? The beaches at Fairbourne, Barmouth and Tywyn are all driveable in about an hour and 10 minutes. You might also head out for a ramble on the Wales Coast Path or a ride on the Talyllyn Railway while you're over by the coast.
