Penhein Glamping – Rural Retreat in South Wales

A Rural Playground

Family Glamping


On the hunt for family activities for half term or school holidays? Come for a week or a long weekend in the Welsh countryside and enjoy a ‘staycation’ like no other at Penhein.

Penhein is made for family adventures. A rural playground for kids of all ages (including big ones), Penhein Glampsite offers families a place to escape the daily routine and run ragged, enjoy the freedom of the countryside and make memories that will last a lifetime.

Intrepid young explorers can burrow into ancient woodland and build an impenetrable den, whilst water babies can head down to the stream for paddling and Poohsticks. For restless thrillseekers, the surrounding area has plenty to offer – from kayaking down the Wye and caving in ancient mines, to mountain biking through the Forest of Dean. And of course it’s not only about keeping the little ones occupied – parents deserve some time off too! So whilst they’re making new friends and busy bushcrafting under the watchful eyes of trained instructors, you can enjoy a few hours off and do your own thing.

Back at basecamp, our alachigh tents can sleep a family of two adults and up to four children. There’s a double, two truckle beds and a sofa bed in each one, all tucked in alongside a well-equipped kitchen beneath a high domed ceiling. There’s comfortably enough room for everyone. Budding cooks can learn how to prepare a delicious dinner on an open log fire and toast marshmallows on the burning embers, before you all cosy in to the communal tent with board games and playing cards to while away the evenings. There is no TV or wifi at the glamping site, just an oasis of calm and comfort for spending quality time together as a family.

Throughout the summer holidays, our changeover days are Monday and Friday. For short stays during the rest of the season, you can also book in from Wednesday. To check availability and prices for the 2019 season, click here.
