A family Glamping getaway at Cosy Under Canvas is a unique opportunity for grown ups to relax round the campfire, while the children’s imaginations run wild through the woods. And the family dog is most welcome too!
The woodland part of our site has two Cosy domes and three Spacious Domes. Ash and Willow, Holly, Oak and Beech. They share a large kitchen and have access to the Cosy Corner for additional seating.
The stream side area has two Spacious domes, Hazel and Rowan, that share their own kitchen.
All of the domes have their own private compost loos and share shower facilities.
The spacious domes sleep up to 6, the cosy domes up to 4. Ideal for group gatherings of families or friends. We can provide travel cots, high chairs and fireguards for children free of charge.
There’s something to keep everyone entertained on site whatever their age, from the grandparents to the little ones. From Stream dipping and pooh sticks to den building and willow weaving, there’s adventure to be had, campfires to be lit and plenty of time to relax. Children will enjoy following the trail round the site to the feely boxes, swings and den and using the activity book for ideas of woodland games to play. If you fancy something more sedate there’s colouring for kids and adults, boules and cards to play; or get creative with the crafty bits and bobs in the Cosy Corner.
There’s plenty of seating for everyone and the large spaces around the fire pits mean that campfire cooking is a must. All chip in with prep and dig into a one pot stew or prepare a BBQ feast to enjoy whilst snuggling up in cosy Welsh blankets, warming your toes on the fire. And don’t forget the marshmallows!
There are lots of activities in the area and we can recommend local companies who can arrange a package to suit all abilities and levels from thrill seekers to the more sedate. To make life really easy some activities are available on site. Try a guided group bike ride, a leisurely canoe down the River Wye, a stroll through the local countryside or a hike up the highest mountain in South Wales, Pen Y Fan.
Or for total relaxation borrow a book, lie in the hammock and chill.
For those who feel they are a little too long in the tooth for Family Glamping, or just dont fancy it, there are numerous B&B’s to choose from in Hay on Wye. Do get in touch for more information.
Campfires are very much encouraged here at Cosy Under Canvas, so be adventurous, embrace the outdoors and cook over the open fire.
There’s a firepit in front of each dome and a large load of logs supplied to get you going. If you need more wood then we sell crates for £10 each and eco kindling and firelighters are also for sale at a reasonable price.
We supply a Koitlich (tripod) for each dome to stand over the fire, plus a large pot and a griddle to hang from it. The griddle is great for BBQing and the pot is perfect for cooking up a risotto, ratatouille, casserole or stew.
As our site is off grid the showers in the woods are wood fueled with a lovely canopy view of the trees above. They are steaming hot with plenty of room inside for changing. There is also a new shower block a short walk away with the water heated by our biomass boiler. All our showers are included in the cost of your stay – no extra charges.
