A luxurious glamping retreat perfect for families, within verdant farmland surroundings and close to the well-known cycling hub of Talybont-on-Usk, the beautiful River Usk and the Talybont Reservoir.

Create long-lasting memories in this elevated glamping property, staying with family or friends in the heart of rural Wales. This purpose-built accommodation offers the fun and intrigue of camping with the luxury of a traditional holiday cottage, with a fitted kitchen and private bathroom on hand for all your daily necessities. Children will simply adore a stay in this holiday home, whether they’re helping feed the chickens on the farm or taking a dip in the wildlife pond. And, for the grown-ups, the allure of the wood-fired hot tub or the chance to enjoy a tipple by the fire will certainly be enough to keep you coming back year on year.

Step up onto the wooden veranda to find an al fresco dining table, the perfect spot for breakfast and planning the day ahead. Step inside the canvas tent to find an open-plan living space that’s kept warm thanks to a cosy wood burner. Two bedrooms can be found with adjustable canvas walls for added privacy, whilst the third bedroom is located in a cabin area with access via a ladder – a great spot for kids to sleep. Completing the property is a self-contained pitch pod a few steps from the lodge with a shower and WC, and an abundance of garden space with a hot tub and fire pit for unwinding outdoors.

Don your walking boots for adventures around the village, heading 0.5 miles to the banks of the River Usk or 2 miles to the Talybont Reservoir. Challenge yourselves to a walk up the area’s highest mountain, Pen y Fan, which is reachable just 10 miles from home. Alternatively, jump on your mountain bike to follow the Talybont Forest cycle trail, an 11-mile route that offers wonderful adventures in the valley. Heading home you’ll find two Talybont-on-Usk pubs within 0.5 miles, the perfect last port of call before heading home for dinner.

We had a fantastic time, very peaceful and well eqipped tent. Charles was a very friendly and welcoming host with great local knowledge and advice. The hot tub was fab and the village is only a short walk away on the canal, with a shop, cafe and 2 pubs.

We absolutely loved our stay in the Dove. Charles was fantastic and our trip couldn't have been any better. The hot tub was a complete luxury and heated up quicker than we expected. We booked some activities with black mountain activity center which was about a 20 min drive, had lovely a trip to the waterfalls and a pub lunch next to the river!
