Camp Cynrig

Child friendly glamping, Powys – Family Glamping at Tipi Village, Brecon Beacons, Wales

About Camp Cynrig

Leave the frantic pace of modern life behind and unwind around the camp fire enjoying the tranquillity of tipi living. Living close to nature, enjoying the rhythm of the day in the cosy comfort of a beautiful handcrafted tipi is guaranteed to give you a holiday all the family can enjoy. 

Right in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park, Camp Cynrig Tipi Village offers a luxurious and quirky way to enjoy getting closer to nature and sleeping under canvas. Great for families who want to introduce their kids to the great outdoors without the perils of ”bring your own tent” camping. The small site is friendly and surrounded by unspoilt countryside in an area of outstanding natural beauty in Wales. The three traditional Sioux tipis are set apart from each other in a gently sloping field, bordered by the river Cynrig in a secluded and peaceful area. It is very well located for horse riding and walking in the Brecon Beacons.

Just pack up your wellies, torches and sleeping bags together with your normal holiday caboodle and arrive to a deluxe canopy under the stars, with everything ready and waiting for you. With breathtaking scenery, a stream to take a paddle in (the site is all fenced so safe for children), and plenty of space for the kids to play Camp Cynrig really is an idyllic spot for families wishing a unique holiday experience. Watch how the children become less reliant on electronic gadgets and revel in the great outdoors… it really is the best playground around. The site is a car free site but there is a car park adjoining the field where the tipis are located. Wheelbarrows will help you get all the necessary kit from your car to your holiday home. 

The tipis - a cool glampng experience

The traditional Sioux tipis are located in a gently sloping field and are available in a choice of 18ft or 21ft. There is one 18ft tipi which sleeps 3 people on one double futon and one single. There are a further two 21ft tipis which sleep a family of 5 in each - having one double futon and three single futons. Each tipi is luxuriously furnished and well equipped with futon beds, a fire pit with firewood, storage box, crockery, cooking utensils, candles and a gas camping stove. Families can enjoy the al-fresco dining experience with ease. The physical pleasures of chopping your own logs and cooking on an open fire, and you may feel you're having a Ray Mears moment, albeit one where flushing toilets and hot showers are never more than a short stroll away. However if the weather doesn’t play ball there is always the communal kitchen with gas rings under shelter.  A handy cool-box with ice-packs is also provided to keep groceries fresh, as are all supplies for cooking and washing.

Just a short walk from your tent there is a bathroom block with hot showers and flushing toilets plus a well-equipped communal kitchen. In the kitchen room there is a wide selection of books, board and card games for families to borrow. There is a hammock to relax in and a small wooden seesaw for young children under the trees. The little ones will love inspecting the hen house to see if any fresh eggs have been laid for their breakfast. The owners have thought of everything to ensure your glamping experience runs smoothly, such as fishing nets for children, toddler equipment, lockers for valuables, a place to charge your mobile and clearly marked signpost woodland walks.
