2021 - what a year! It was a real rollercoaster of a year, with plenty of ups and downs. Before diving head first into the new year, we decided to take this opportunity to look back on 2021 and reminisce on all our achievements from last year.
2021 was a year of growth and change for Hush Hush Glamping. Despite entering the year with various lockdowns, we completed the build of Huacaya’s Cush and welcomed its first guests in April. We hosted celebrity Pete Wicks in the summer, as well as receiving some gorgeous new imagery of our pods from Tremio and Stephen Jones. And to top it all off, we were awarded The Best Glamping Site in Wales by Glampitect!
So, without further ado, let’s delve into some of our proudest achievements from 2021…

Celebrity Approved Glamping Site
Back in summer 2021, we welcomed celebrity Pete Wicks, actor from The Only Way is Essex, to stay at Huacaya’s Cush - our luxury glamping pod for 4. He loved his break and particularly enjoyed the morning welcome from our alpacas!
Pete Wicks is a huge animal lover and is an ambassador for the RSPCA. He shared some snaps of his Welsh staycation on Instagram, telling his 1.3 million followers: “Sometimes you just gotta get away … and spend time with alpacas. A little while ago I spent a few days in Wales at a beautiful remote location surrounded by sheep and alpacas and I loved it. Amazing views, amazing lodge and amazing animals.”
We loved hosting Pete and we are so glad that he enjoyed his stay at Huacaya’s Cush. This year, we hope to invite even more celebrities to come and stay with us…watch this space!!
