At Penhein Glamping eight luxurious Alachigh tents are tucked away in a secluded 3 acre wood surrounded by fields and meadows in the Monmouthshire hills. Custom-made to keep you warm and dry, with wonderfully comfy beds, an en suite loo, wood-burning stove, running water and a well-stocked kitchen, the tents at Penhein have everything you need to feel at home in the Great Outdoors.
This peaceful coppiced wood on the family-run farm is also home to Petro, a huge communal tent, a shared shower block with underfloor heating, hot monsoon showers and a roll-top bath, and a separate cooking facility (fondly known as the ‘Cheat’s Kitchen’) for those not up for the culinary adventure of cooking on the wood-burning stove in each tent or fire pit just outside).
Beyond the glampsite, guests are free to roam the 450 acres of farmland, wandering down nature trails or scaling hills to the top of the valley, where they can enjoy magnificent views of the River Severn and surrounding countryside. Or enlist on one of the many activities run on the farm: there’s clay pigeon shooting, foraging or bushcraft amongst many others to choose from.
Penhein is run by the Hearn family, who are committed to providing an authentic yet fabulous camping experience for their guests, complete with rustic charm and rural abandon but not without a few little luxuries and some home comforts. Top of the list of things to bring? An adventurous spirit!
