Tipi or not tipi, that is the question... Just like Hamlet, you’ll find yourself in splendid isolation at this exclusive site in the beautiful Brecon Beacons, where the only neighbours are the sparkling river and its resident heron. Unlike the depressive Dane, however, you’ll soon drop the navel-gazing as you whoop, “Tipi!” and get stuck into your very own slings and arrows adventure...
The authentic tipi at Cwm Banw Tipi Retreat is decorated with hand painted Native American wall hangings and sheepskin rugs, and has a double futon (cosy bedding is provided) and rustic furniture all the way from Wyoming.
Alongside the tent are two hand-crafted wooden huts, housing a private composting loo and a hot spring-fed shower respectively, with eco-friendly toiletries laid on. There’s also a kitchen tent equipped with a cool box, food storage, gas rings and a grill, plus cooking utensils and tableware for up to six people.
Enjoy a romantic candlelit meal inside the tipi, or dine al fresco on the covered stoop deck, before putting your feet up in the hammock or swing seat next to the firepit, and letting the calmness of this amazing place soak in....
Guests can also book themselves in for a bubble in an outdoor hot tub with valley views, which they’ll find at the nearby farmhouse, along with a sauna, and a trained masseuse who also runs yoga and meditation sessions on demand.
Up to three people can fit inside the tipi, but if you’re a larger group, three more can come along with their own tent and camping gear (we suggest a game of bows and arrows to decide who gets the tipi...).
Finally, the owners recommend bringing torches and decent shoes, as access is via a track and down a grassy slope to the tipi in the meadow.
Find nearby sites with availability…
Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
