Boutique Bathing

Bathing at Penhein

We’re rather proud of our bathing arrangements, with every tent having its own dedicated shower or bath. It may not sound all that romantic, but even our Shower Block and Drying Room are a little slice of home-away-from-home heaven in the woods…

Wood clad on the outside with a Mandarin Stone tiled interior and sumptuous underfloor heating, the Shower Block is home to four hot monsoon showers, beautiful Belfast sinks, and a flushing loo. The monsoon showers are allocated to the Atalanta tents The Cribbau, The Oakes, The Park and The Slades tents.

The ultimate (and somewhat unexpected) luxury, though, is a glorious roll-top bath to revive and rejuvenate at the end of a long day outside. This is allocated to the Atalanta tent, The Coombe.

All of these come with a complimentary set of shampoo, conditioner and shower gel and we supply you with your own towel for your stay. The Shower Block also has electric sockets for the all important hairdryers and the personal touches of mirrors above the basins and dressed with fresh flowers from local suppliers.


Three of our tents have their own personal enclosed monsoon shower just outside their door – the Artemis tents  Cae Solomon, Catta Dee and Castroggi.


Whilst we’d all like to pretend we live in a tropical paradise, sometimes it does rain – even in sunny Wales on a glamping holiday. Should you get caught short by a sudden downpour whilst out and about, hang wet clothes and walking boots in our specially-made drying room. They’ll dry off overnight ready for another day of adventuring.
