Most glamping sites are located in rural settings, surrounded by fields or farmland. You may find yourself thinking that there can’t be much to do whilst glamping – if you want an action-packed holiday then surely you need to go abroad?! Glamping allows you to slow down and enjoy nature, whilst spending quality time with your loved one. But if you are a keen adventurer then don’t worry, as there are still plenty of activities nearby to enjoy.
A day in the life of a glamper
Get away from the stresses and pressure of everyday life on your glamping staycation. Have a well-needed lie in and don’t worry about setting your alarm! When you do finally rise, take in the splendid views that surround you and watch the spectacular wildlife. You could spend the day reading that book you’ve been meaning to dive into, or just take some time to ground yourself and relax. With seemingly never-ending work and family commitments, it can be easy to forget what a beautiful world we live in; reconnect with nature and have a lovely stroll in the countryside with Hush Hush Glamping.
Itinerary for your stay at Hush Hush Glamping
(Some of the) things to do near Hare’s Form include:
Explore our farm. We encourage visitors to amble across our fields and take in the breath-taking scenery. Situated at 1,300ft above sea level, Hare’s Form offers amazing views of the Radnor Valley and Black Mountains; and you can even see the peaks of the Brecon Beacons on a clear day from our top field!
Watch our alpaca herd going about their day. You may even see them play and skip around at dusk, especially at this time of year when we have cria (baby alpacas) on the farm.
Observe the wildlife. A wide range of animals come to visit the farm, including families of hares, wandering deer, nesting nuthatches, resident woodpeckers, flitting jays, roaming foxes, renowned red kites and many more.
Visit Elan Valley Reservoir & Dams (pictured). The Elan Valley Reservoirs offer incredible scenery; a photographer and hiker's delight! There are 6 dams to explore. The dams, reservoirs and 73-mile aqueduct of the Elan Valley were built over 100 hundred years ago to supply desperately-needed clean water to Birmingham. It was an epic feat of civil engineering, set within an area of outstanding scenic beauty.
Explore the Radnor Forest. If you’re a keen mountain biker, the forest offers a 10.5-mile trail which is conveniently close to the pod. Or, if you wish to go at a more leisurely pace, you can walk from the pod into the forest and follow the gentle tracks.
Visit the Water-Break-Its-Neck Waterfall. Step through the high-sided entrance that curves around to expose a beautiful waterfall – it’s like you’ve stepped back in time to the Jurassic era! As the waterfall twists, you can view it from either the top or lower trail. The waterfall had its claim to fame in Ellie Goulding’s ‘Your Song’ video, as she is a local girl from Lyonshall.
Walk up Hergest Ridge. After a ramble up its slope, the ridge offers spectacular views from the opposite side of the valley back towards Hare’s Form pod.
Travel to Llandrindod Wells Lake. This picturesque Victorian town contains a glistening lake, which sits inside a circular mile walk and is home to ducks, swans and geese.
Take a trip to Gigrin Farm Red Kite Feeding Station. It really is a magical experience, as up to 600 red kites swoop down for their food just outside the viewing huts.
