Our four night stay was exactly what we'd hoped for and more. The camp is private and secluded, with some of the best views you could wish for. Star gazing on a clear night was truly a highlight. This is definitely an experience we'd recommend and one we'd happily do again. Get away from it all and go here, it's... More

Tipi's are spacious and tastefully decorated. The owner is lovely, she acted as a taxi driver for me on the Friday night and picked me up from the... More

This place was absolutely fantastic. I spent 4 nights here with my family including my parents aged 79 and 66. We stayed in the wapi tipi and a bell tent (sleeps up to 6 in each) and had our own meadow. Everything we needed was thought of, even condiments in the fabulous kitchen area. The children had the best time... More

Just returned from a Hen weekend, six of us in total, and we are all still raving about it - and probably will for a good while to come! This is real glamping - a perfect little retreat. The Tipi itself was comfortable and easily accommodated all six of us, and we thoroughly enjoyed being so cut off - no... More

I've just got back from a Birthday weekend with 3 other friends.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A private and secluded Tipi site with no neighbours in the heart of the Welsh Brecon Beacons National Park. Cwm Banw Tipi Retreat is along a ¼ mile track and nestled in a secluded 45 acre private meadow valley with direct access to Brecon Beacons National Park land. A bubbling river (Cwm Banw) runs alongside the retreat and is a favorite with visiting grandchildren and guests alike. A swing seat and hammock provides an ideal place to read a book or just close your eyes and listen. to the peace and quiet, crackling fire and the odd mountain sheep. Some guests have commented on sighting an otter along the river bank and a heron is a frequent visitor. ... more   less
