General

Glamping with Black Mountain views, four miles from town of books Hay, and a pub within a minute’s lurch…Wye wouldn’t you, say we…

The team at Wye Glamping have the laudable ambition of bringing guests close to nature but immersing them in comfort and style too, so even reluctant campers/other halves should be mightily impressed with the luxury bell tents and yurt here, all with proper beds, kitchen hut of their very own and on wooden platforms in their own private camps.

Each also has a compost loo, the stream running alongside, a firepit, picnic table and deckchairs, and a little individual library of books, toys and games for rainy days…again, Wye wouldn’t you?

For supplies, the site is on the edge of Velindre village and pub (there are a couple of small play parks here too), and there’s a petrol station selling basics in the nearby village of Three Cocks, and a Co-op, butchers, bakeries and greengrocers in Hay-on-Wye. Fancy some boutique shopping to go with the sense of luxury? The market town of Brecon is ten miles away.

Wye Glamping is on the Hay Festival shuttle bus route for literarati going to the festival: the bus passes the site doorstep every hour, going to the festival from 845am, with the last bus leaving Hay at 1115pm.

Directions


Once you reach Velindre:
If you are arriving from the south (past Brecon or Abergavenny), the entrance to the old estate yard is on your left immediately after the sign for Felindre, as you enter the village.

If arriving from the north (Hay-on Wye or Hereford), we are just past the pub (Three Horseshoes) next to the play park. The entrance is wide and surrounded by a wooden fence.

Drive over the cattle grid and follow the private road around to the right, and you’ll then see a big green agricultural shed on your left. Turn left just before the shed, and this will take you into our car park.

The yurt and bell tent are a short walk from here along a gravel path. There will be a trolley to transport your bags to the camp.

Local attractions

If you’re not visiting Hay-on-Wye during literary festival time (if not, wye not?), volumes’ worth of fun can still be had: the couple of dozen bookshops with millions of books between them should keep you busy for a day or so, then there’s Hay Castle – with another bookshop – and the arts, crafts and antiques establishments down the side streets.

Pick up your own local produce for dinner at the farmers’ market on Thursdays, but if you prefer to eat in town, try Hay’s oldest pub the Three Tuns, named by the knowledgeable ones of the Michelin Guide 2011 as ‘One of the best dining pubs in Britain’ (then wash it all down with a sheep’s milk ice-cream from Shepherds).

Once you’ve bought the necessary guidebooks and maps from the Hay bookshops, take to the paths of the Brecon Beacons National Park and beyond for miles of scenic hikes and hooking up with long distance paths. The Taff Trail goes south from Brecon for 55 miles along the River Taff to Cardiff Bay; the oft-walked Offa’s Dyke Path skirts the eastern side of the national park; and the Beacons Way runs for a full hundred miles across the park. Probably you should not attempt all three on your very first Big Wales Walking Trip.

The Brecon Beacons National Park is also where you can lie back and stargaze: it’s a designated Dark Sky Reserve and the Milky Way is visible from here on clear nights. Elsewhere the park has cycle routes, climbing, caving, watersports, over a dozen mountain bike trails, and five mountain bike centres; there are shops and galleries at Abergavenny, and Crickhowell as well as Brecon if the thought of all this outdoor activity is making you feel a bit faint.

You’ll find bucketloads of things to do in wet weather too: the award-winning soft play centre Play Barn at nearby Brynach; Brecon’s indoor pool and ten-pin bowling; Brecon Cathedral and the indoor options including climbing, rope bridges and ‘caving’ at the award-winning Llangorse Multi Activity Centre.
