After a few wrong turns and some unexpected off-roading, Broome Retreat finally came into view at the top of a narrow track in the quaint little village of Pen-y-Garnedd.Any woes were quickly forgotten, as there’s a genuine, homely feel to this campsite from the off.

The two well-dressed yurts sit neatly at either end of a gently sloping field at the back of the owners’ cottage. Being so close means Pete and Kate are on hand for anything you need. And once you’re settled in, you’re free to unwind and soak up the naturally laid-back vibe that oozes from every corner.

And what a place to unwind.With just one person to every 10 acres, Powys is one of the most sparsely populated districts in the land. Broome Retreat is tucked away in a remote corner of the beautifulTanatValley.If you’re after breathtaking views and a healthy dose of tranquillity, then this is the landscape jackpot.

On site, the facilities have a certain rustic charm about them, including a toilet that is a serious contender for ‘best view from a loo’. Next door, the stable has been converted into a homely kitchen, complete with wood- burning stove and rainy-day entertainment.

Inside, the yurts are delightfully presented and wonderfully cosy.As evening falls,the interior comes alive with the soft glow of fairy lights, plus enough tea lights dotted around to give IKEA a run for its money. Outside, the faint sparkle of solar lights and steadily burning campfires bring a casual sense of serenity. Simply settle down with a glass of vino, marvel over the clarity of the night sky, and enjoy the old-school charm of camping, but without a roll-mat in sight.

Whether you want to get in touch with your creative side, pull on your walking boots and head for the hills, or simply escape the hustle and bustle, come and revel in this sizeable slice of camping perfection.




To go with the calm and cool vibe, ask Kate to book you in for a session of massage, reiki, aromatherapy, or acupuncture. In stark contrast, Lake Bala is a must for water-loving adrenaline junkies. Elsewhere, marvel at Pistyll Rhaeadr (at 75 metres, it’s the tallest single-drop waterfall in the UK), or simply go hill-walking around Snowdonia. On rainy days, kids can get their hands dirty at Park Hall Farm (01691 671123) just over the border in Oswestry.

Food & Drink

In Llanfyllin, Seeds (01691 648604) is a relaxed (albeit pricey) little bistro, serving modern British food alongside a great wine list. For an abundance of local produce, head to Down to Earth (01691 648841), a delightful small co-operative.

Opening Times

Open from April to the end of October.
