Luxury family-sized glamping pods with en-suite facilities and hot tubs, with wonderful views across the Wye Valley

Great House Farm offers equal parts luxury and heritage. The site is run by the Jones family who have been farming at Great House for more than 50 years but the working hill farm itself dates back to the 1600’s when it was owned by Oxford University. As of this year, they've decided to open up their home to guests, creating a stunning glamping site with three luxury glamping pods and a refurbished self-catering farmhouse, ensuring that the exciting history of the site is forever evolving.

The pods themselves are a thoroughly modern and comfortable affair. Inside, they have all the kit you need – en-suite shower rooms, proper beds, cooking facilities and modern perks, like WiFi and a smart TV. Two of the pods sleep four (with a sofa bed that's great for little'uns), while the largest pod, Wye (each pod is named after a local river) has an additional quirky bunk bed too, with each bunk secreted away in a little cubby hole. Outside, every pod has a private patio with a custom-built firepit that's great for al fresco cooking and a hot tub with jets and LED lighting. And it's all ideally placed for soaking up the farm's far-reaching views. Around 300 metres up the slopes of the Aberedw Hills, overlooking the village of Erwood, Great House Farm looks out across the Wye Valley towards distant Hay Bluff and Pen Y Fan in the Brecon Beacons.

For most visitors, the view is a constant reminder of why you're here. The River Wye offers opportunities for fishing and canoeing, while the distant hills offer endless walking opportunities. Even closer to home it's just a mile to the Wye Valley Way or you can walk from the farm up Twyn y Garth to see the old World War One memorial on the top. Ironically, it's when night falls and your settled in your cosy pod that one of the real highlights of this place comes out to shine. Between the Elan Valley and the Brecon Beacons National Park, the farm is in one of the few true dark-sky areas in the UK and the night sky is dazzling. Peep from the port-hole window beside your bed or sit out in the hot tub and turn off the lights, it's a pleasure to enjoy.

    Nearby

    There is so much to do on your doorstep and these are a few of our favourite local walks:

    A lovely short walk is one of the most famous old German field howitzer on top of the hill known as Twyn y Garth. The gun was delivered by rail in 1920 to Erwood Station and, after some rivalry between the men of Erwood and those of Llandeilo Graban, it was dragged by men and horses and positioned adjacent to the Old British Camp on Twyn y Garth, where it was cemented in place. The views from the top of Twyn Y Garth are simply stunning.

    Explore Llandeilo Hill and breathtaking views over the Wye Valley. Turn left out of the site and walk to Llandeilo Graban Church. At the crossroads turn to the left and follow the road for about half a mile (past Pentrecaeau) and you will then be on the bottom of Llandeilo Hill. Twm Tobaccos grave site is given as the grid reference, but there are many wonderful views, so choose your route. Please note, it is uphill and quite steep in places.

    Our website gives more information on things to do in the local area.

    Food & Drink

    There are a number of pubs close to the site - The Seven Stars in Aberedw (about 4 miles) is a friendly local pub.  The Wheelwrights in Erwood (less than 2 miles) serves generous meals and The Griffin in Llyswen (about 6 miles away) has a good reputation for dining.

    Llyswen also has a 24 hour garage with a shop for all your basic needs.

    If you want local suppliers of bacon, burgers, chocolates, bread, etc then please just ask and we can put you in touch with a number of fine local producers.

    The Owner Says

    Welcome to Great House Farm Luxury Pods and Self Catering, a Glamping site offering 3 luxury Glamping Pods and a self catering farmhouse in the heart of Mid Wales.

    A hillside retreat nestled in the rolling hills above the village of Erwood in the heart of Mid Wales run by the Jones family, who have been farming at Great House Farm for more than 50 years and who have diversified this year to establish a stunning glamping site and refurbished self catering farmhouse for our guests to enjoy.

    Great House Farm Luxury Pods and Self Catering is a place to get away from it all, unwind and relax far away from the stresses and strains of modern life.

    Our site is on a working beef and sheep hill farm dating back to the 1600's when it was part of land owned by Oxford University.  Originally named Llandeilo Hall, it is thought that the farm was once quite a grand settlement for its time.

    The site is simply stunning, situated 272 metres high in the Aberedw Hills of Radnorshire, with views across the valley to Breconshire.

    Treat yourself to a relaxing and luxurious break and spend the evening unwinding in your private hot tub and roasting marshmallows or having a BBQ on your large cast iron custom built fire pit.

    Our pods have been creatively designed to ensure your stay is truly unforgettable. From the moment you arrive you will be surrounded by luxury in one of our 3 uniquely styled pods. Two of our pods can sleep up to 4 people and the other one up to 6 people. They are named after local rivers - the Wye, Chwefru and Irfon.

    The timber pods are well equipped for outdoor living. Relax on your own private patio whilst gazing at the amazing views over towards Pen Y Fan (the highest mountain in South Wales) and Hay bluff.

    Everything you need is provided including bedding, towels and kitchen equipment. All our pods are fitted with a small, fully equipped kitchen. The pods can accommodate up to 4 or 6 people and have a double bed, 2 single bunk beds (in the 6 person pod) and a comfy sofa bed. The integrated shower room is equipped with a walk in shower, hand basin and toilet. Each pod has wifi, a smart TV and charging points.

    The pods are fully insulated and have central heating for those chilly winter nights.
