Wales offers a range of glamping accommodation for a more pampered way to stay in the great outdoors. And with much of it off-grid, Wales really is the place for a digital detox, all snuggled under a Welsh blanket.
So where is the best place to glamp in Wales? We have a wide choice of glamping sites across Wales, including luxury glamping, safari tents near the seaside, and dark skies sites where you can relax in a hot tub under the stars. Most of our glampsites are based in the countryside, close enough to local attractions so you can explore, or stay on site and chill as the mood takes you. Some are on working farms where you can meet the animals and buy fresh produce. Other sites are close to woodland walks and family trails. Many sites are family and dog-friendly, with plenty of outdoor space to roam around and explore.
Depending on the type of lodging, some accommodation has integrated toilets and showers, or separate facilities.
