Child friendly glamping, Powys – Glamping in Wales, Dolbedwyn, Kington, Powys on the Welsh/English Borders

About Cosy Under Canvas

Fancy camping under the stars without the hassle of a carload full of camping equipment and no space to squeeze the kids? Cosy Under Canvas has the
perfect solution. Picture your family enjoying a night under the stars in these eco friendly domes.

Your Geo-Dome

Each dome sits on a wooden platform and comfortably sleeps a family of four to six. Two on a hand-made double or king size bed, two on a double futon bed and two on roll out futon mattresses. The beds and futons are topped with memory foam mattresses, contemporary welsh blankets, cushions and throws. Sumptuous duvets and crisp cotton bedding are provided to aid a relaxing night’s sleep. The floors are covered in rugs and sheepskins.

To complete the cosy camping experience all units have a stylish wood burning stove that can be stoked up to keep you toasty over night.

Getting back to basics and lighting a campfire is positively encouraged. So cook up a one-pot meal, or toast marshmallows for the kids. Have a BBQ or knock yourself something up on the camping stove in the shared deck kitchen.

All the essentials are thoughtfully provided to make a well earned cup of tea on arrival.

Well behaved dogs, with their own beds are welcome by prior arrangement.

The Cosy Under Canvas glamping site is situated in four acres of beautiful woodland and water meadow in the heart of the Welsh/English borders countryside, and is open from April to October.

Easy Peasy for Families

The kitchen is equipped with traditional enamel crockery, pots, pans, cutlery and cooking utensils, a cool box and storage box for dried food. Fresh cold spring water is provided from a tap in the kitchen and washroom for washing, washing
up and cooking. Filtered drinking water is also supplied.

Cosy under Canvas keeps their impact on the environment to a minimum. There are compost loos and washrooms in the woods, plus eco, wood fired showers with a canopy view. Alternatively use the washroom and biomass boiler heated
power showers, just a short walk away.

A travel cot and high chair can also be supplied.

For the Kids

Send the kids off scouting for fallen twigs. Toasting marshmallows on your own camp fire tastes all the better if you have sourced the wood - trust me I know!  If the weather is unkind, make use of the activities in the Cosy Corner, or just relax with a book in front of the wood burning stove in the Cosy Lounge.  Bliss.

Stay local or Stray Away

In the woods there is the beginning of a willow tunnel, a bracken den for anyone to add to as they wish, and a recycled tyre swing for hours of fun. Explore the water meadow area with a shallow stream to paddle in and play pooh sticks on the bridge.  Or just laze in the hammocks to absorb the peace, quiet and scenery the site has to offer.

Enjoy pottering around the market towns of Hay on Wye or Kington, meander the surrounding countryside and network of footpaths and bridleways, stride a section of the Offa’s Dyke Path, or visit the spectacular Brecon Beacons National Park.

For more adventure

Why not try a mountain bike ride, a family kayak trip along the River Wye, an exciting gorge challenge or pony trekking with spectacular mountain views?  Enjoy time as a family.

Whatever you choose to do with your day, when you return to your dome, you can pour yourself a drink, light a roaring fire and enjoy a slower pace of life - an alternative break away from the trappings of a hectic life.
