Want the freedom of a camping hol without that whole sharing bathrooms, traipsing through mud, sleeping on the ground thing? Then head to Under the Oak Glamping for luxe stays on a family-friendly glampsite a little over half an hour’s drive from Cardiff city centre.
Tucked away in a peaceful corner of a traditional family farm, the site is next to a pretty pond and is well placed to make the most of the stunning views across the countryside. When the outside world beckons, it’s just 15 minutes to the small Glamorgan town of Caerphilly, where there’s a castle to explore, a golf club for days on the links and a handful of bars and restaurants to sort local eats.
Time to shut out the world for the evening? Fire up the woodburning stove and cook up a storm in the kitchen (order a hamper or toss a fiver in the honesty box to stock up on wood and basics on site), then settle down with a book or game to get cosy.
More adventurous guests might not want to turn in just yet – there’s a firepit next to the pond for barbecues and meeting the neighbours, and a woodfired hot tub for unravelling aches and pains after long days of adventures... or an evening of stargazing on the veranda might be just the ticket to soothe busy minds before bed.

Active types are well catered for round here: the edge of Brecon Beacons National Park is about 35 minutes’ drive from base for hikes and waterfall trails, adrenaline flows freely at BikePark Wales mountain biking centre (35 minutes) and there’s a climbing centre a little over 20 minutes away if the great wide open is too daunting. More competitive guests might prefer paintball or laser quest, both of which can be done within half an hour of the site.
More sedate getaways can be had with leisurely explores around some of the nearby historical sites: Castell Coch, Raglan Castle, Ogmore Castle and Skenfrith Castle are all within an hour, and a pitstop (sorry) at Big Pit National Coal Museum comes highly recommended for underground tours with real miners.
If a taste of grandeur is required, jaunts should be made to Llancaiach Fawr Manor, 25 minutes away, and the ruined Tintern Abbey (55 minutes), or into Cardiff to poke around Mansion House and Insole Court. There’s plenty else to do in the city too, from brewery tours to science discovery centres, to ice skating arenas.
For those quintessential holiday beach days, there are a handful of sandy beaches within about an hour of site, and surfing fans can travel the two hours to Aberaeron to catch some waves.
