Welsh Market Towns

Our glamping location is on Welsh borders, so why not make a foray across to some of its best market towns, many just half an hour away from your Mongolian yurt or Shepherd’s hut hideaway.


Hay on Wye Herefordshire

A firm favourite. About 20 min drive. Famous for its book shops and of course the Hay Festival, and a good launch pad for a trek up the Black Mountains onto Hay Bluff. Or just wander gently and have a coffee.

Famously, there is not one ghastly chain shop in the high street.



Glassblowers, museums, a cathedral – plus there’s all that countryside stuff to tramp about in. About a 40 min drive from Midland Farm, Brecon hosts the 24th Regiment of Foot’s museum, recounting the 48 hours of its cataclysmic defeat at Isandlwana and the subsequent miraculous ‘victory’ at Rorke’s Drift.


Home to Wales’ largest food festival,  and surrounded by the breathtaking Brecon Beacons, as a maket town Abergavenny punches well above its weight.

Whilst in ‘Aber’, head over to Crickhowell. This quaint town lies just over 10 miles south-east of Abergavenny. With beautiful views of the Usk Valley, a castle and charming shops and cafes, it’s a lovely spot for an afternoon meander.
