Cook on the open fire using the tripod provided or knock yourself something up on the camping stove in the simple, shared deck kitchen. The kitchen is fully equipped with traditional enamel crockery, pots, pans, cutlery and cooking utensils, a cool box and storage box for dried food. There’s undercover space for everyone to sit if you do need to shelter or park yourself on the picnic blanket.

The site's impact on the environment is kept to a minimum; there are private compost loos and washrooms in the woods plus lovely eco showers with a canopy view. But guests can also pop up to the house and use the more conventional bathroom.

The cosy Kata tipis are based on a traditional design. Each tipi comfortably sleeps four adults. The futons have a memory foam toppers and are covered with traditional welsh blankets, throws and sheepskins. To complete the cosy camping experience each tipi also has a stylish wood burning stove that quickly heats the tipi and can be stoked up to keep you toasty over night. There’s a chiminea on the deck of each tipi that’s great for toasting marshmallows. 

The three domes are uniquely designed to create more space without internal supports than any other structure. They can sleep up to six adults and the beds are topped with luxurious, contemporary Welsh blankets and sheepskins. Two of the domes also have fantastic wood fired hot tubs for your exclusive use. Light the fire, chill out while it heats up then sit back and enjoy some steamy evening stargazing.

Cosy Under Canvas is a tranquil glamping site on the Welsh borders. This setting lends itself to a relaxed, alternative break away from the trappings of a hectic life. It is perfect for those who love the idea of a unique, low impact and environmentally friendly camping holiday with absolutely everything provided.
