Great House Farm: Private hot tubs with each pod

General

  • Self-catering glamping site on a small farm site in Mid Wales
  • A 35-minute drive from the Brecon Beacons National Park; walks nearby
  • Private patio with a hot tub, firepit, barbecue and mountain views

Longing to get away to Mid Wales for its mountains and splendid scenery? If you want the pleasures of a rural retreat but don’t want to part with the little luxuries, then the self-catering glamping site at Great House Farm strikes a nice balance between the two – and all 35 minutes' drive away from the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Based on a hillside farm that dates back to the 1600s, the Jones family have farmed the land for over 50 years… back then the farm, originally named Llandeilo Hall, was quite a grand settlement for its time and previously part of land owned by the University of Oxford. Now, the working beef and sheep farm is still rather scenic, 272 metres high in the Aberedw Hill in Radnorshire with views across the valley to Breconshire.

Potter around your private timber deck… with a large cast-iron custom-built firepit, barbecue and seating area, it's a top spot to appreciate the mountain views (pick out Pen Y Fan and Hay Bluff in the distance). The central heating and hot tub will certainly keep you warm here, even if there’s a light chill.

With a small fully-equipped kitchen area, you’ll also be sorted for prepping your own meals. For ingredients, the nearest food shop is 10 minutes’ drive away.

It's easy to unwind elsewhere too, as each accommodation has wifi, a smart TV and charging point, plus an integrated shower room with a walk-in shower, sinks and toilet (towels and bedding provided) so you can keep feeling fresh.

    This was the most beautiful stay we have ever had the location was stunning, the family were lovely and always on offer if you needed help, upon finding out we had just got married they decorated the pod, it was so relaxing I would definitely go back

    Disliked: 

    Nothing!!
    Although a little out of the way from restaurants etc

From the manager...

Thank you both for your kind words. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us.
You are right, we are in the countryside and our closest places to eat range from a mile (Wheelwrights, Erwood), 3 miles (Griffin, Llyswen and Seven Stars Aberedw), so nothing directly on the doorstep.
Best wishes for your future married life and hope to see you again in the future.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

If you haven’t already mapped out your walking routes, the footpath to the top of Twyn Y Garth (15 minutes’ walk) is a good place to start. Here, there’s a German Howitzer memorial (a large field gun, now rusted away in parts) from World War I and views over the Wye Valley.

For more local vistas, Llandeilo Hill (around 20 minutes’ walk to the foot of the hill) likes to show off. Again, it’s possible to walk there directly from the site, past the Llandeilo-Graban Church… just ask the site for more detailed directions.

For a spot known by the locals, make your way downhill to the Erwood Station Gallery (half an hour’s walk) where there’s a modern art gallery on the site of a former railway station with works by local artists alongside old train carts and other hooting features.

A little further afield but worth the extra miles is the Brecon Beacons National Park (35 minutes' drive). It’s already well-known for its walks and mountain biking trails but there are also other activities such as watersports, bushcraft and abseiling around the park or underground adventures in the Fforest Fawr Geopark (45 minutes).

Must see

  • Brecon Mountain Railway (32.9 kilometres)
  • Blaenavon Ironworks (38.3 kilometres)
  • Big Pit: National Coal Museum (38.4 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Cwmmau Farmhouse (18.5 kilometres)
  • The Weir (34.0 kilometres)
