“Private bathrooms made of former horse boxes are a stylish utility.” - AA Inspector
Our Inspector's view
Located on a working farm with undulating hills creating a stunning landscape, very well spaced quality bell tents are strategically placed to maximise excellent views and interiors are furnished with a small wood burning stove, efficient task lighting, quality beds and seating. Adjoining each tent is a former horse box which has been stylishly converted into a fully equipped private bathroom with modern efficient fittings including a thermostatically controlled shower over the bath, which, when the main access door panel is dropped, creates a unique memory of soaking with panoramic viewing experiences. A central campers' kitchen contains individual fridges and communal washing up and additional cooking facilities. The glamping area surface is a balance of neat lush grass and indigenous flora and fauna creating colour with the added benefit of wildlife attraction and there are great play opportunities for children of all ages.

About the area
In their bid to control the borderlands of Monmouthshire – also known as the Marches – the Normans built a triangle of castles: Grosmont, Skenfrith and White. At first, they were simple wooden structures strengthened by earthworks, but when the lively Welsh refused to stop attacking them, it was decided more permanent fortresses were needed. All three are worth a visit and the views from the battlements at White Castle over the surrounding countryside to the Black Mountains are stunning, as is all the scenery in this area – consisting of a patchwork of low hills, hidden valleys, fields criss-crossed with hedgerows and small belts of woodland.
Monmouth itself makes a great base to explore the beautiful Wye Valley, as well as being known as the home of Rockfield Studios, where Queen recorded Bohemian Rhapsody in 1975. The largest town in the county, Abergavenny is creating a name for itself as the foodie capital of the Usk Valley, and has held a weekly cattle market on the same site since 1863. Its location just six miles from the English border means it’s often described as the ‘gateway to Wales’.
