It won’t be much of a surprise when you realise you've become very fond of Pond and Beyond Glamping after a trip to this site on a family-run sheep farm. With fab views, pretty countryside surrounds, a peaceful atmosphere and a location in between the Brecon Beacons and the Wye Valley, it’s a stellar spot for hols in Herefordshire.
Stays here are in a bell tent circled by a fenced patch of land for privacy – and to keep wandering sheep away – with sleeping space for up to four people. Inside, the accommodation is furnished with a fully equipped kitchen, a kingsize bed and solar or battery lighting, plus there's access to an open-air hot shower and a compost toilet.
Head outdoors to sit around the firepit and grill grub on the barbecue (the first bag of wood and charcoal is provided, and more is available to buy on site). Each pitch has a gate leading to a field and roams by the river or games of rounders.
Wander to Dore Abbey, a couple of minutes away, or take a longer lope to the greenery of Ewyas Harold Common (half an hour on foot). You could head to Hereford for kayak rental (25 minutes) and the Wye Valley for canoeing (35 minutes) or just amble on nearby trails through Golden Valley.
The site has no electricity, so it’s a top spot for experiencing a digital detox in a wildlife-rich area with a relaxed atmosphere. Because it's off the grid, it’s worth packing a coolbox – the owner can freeze ice packs for you – and a power bank if you really do need to charge up your devices.

This is an ace area for walks. Head out on hikes up to the nearby peaks of the Brecon Beacons and the Black Mountains – Ysgyryd Fawr and Sugar Loaf (25 and 30 minutes’ drive) are your best bets – or set off towards the gentler landscape of the Malvern Hills across the border in England (an hour).
