Luxury Glamping

Luxury Glamping

An alternative to Hay-on-Wye cottages

Our four luxe-pods offer stylish, modern living, with iconic curved walls to the rear and wall-to-ceiling sliding glass doors to the front, with uninterrupted views to the countryside

Surrounded by Corsican pine trees, meadow flowers, and orchard, our pods sit within a seven acre haven in the Wye Valley, with the peaks of the Brecon Beacons just beyond the horizon.

Although designed for couples, we can provide a travel cot for an infant or a single duvet on the sofa for a child. 

Well-behaved dogs are welcome at Cynefin Retreats (one dog per pod)

Romantic? Yes. The pods are designed with couples in mind: city escapees desperate for some green, some peace.

This is several rungs up from glamping. There is a hot tub on the deck, underfloor heatings, one of those frying pan sized shower heads, a smooth, handleless kitchen, and crockery from Sophie Conran’s range for Portmeirion

Dogs Friendly

With footpaths leading right from the doorstep, Cynefin Retreats makes for the perfect dog-friendly getaway. As dog owners ourselves, we understand that dogs are part of the family, and your four-legged friend is welcome. The price for bringing your dog is £30.

We ask that any guests bringing a dog follow standard etiquette, ensuring their dogs are well-behaved, and are supervised when they’re outside in our meadows, with all dog mess disposed of.

We lovingly provide:

  • Accommodation for one dog per Pod
  • Dog towel
  • Warm running water for cleaning muddy paws and tummies (located outside our utility builiding)
  • Water bowl and food bowl

We kindly request:

  • That your dog is well-behaved, quiet and does not disturb guests in neighbouring Pods
  • That your dog is washed and dried before coming inside after any wet/muddy walks
  • That you make use of the dog towel provided
  • That your dog is refrained from going in the bedroom and is kept off the bed
  • That you bring your own dog basket
  • That you bring your own blanked if you would like your dog to be on the sofa
  • That your dog is supervised at all times when outside. Cynefin Retreats is in a rural area surrounded by farm land. It is therefore vital that the dog is not allowed to roam free without supervision.
  • Collect all of your dog’s mess using the shovel provided and move to the hedge way.

There’s a perfect reading corner by the fire in the pod, where you can lie against the sloping wall, toast your toes and turn the pages.
