Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Swallow barn was amazing, Tamsin was a great host and was fast at responding. The communal areas are perfect, loads of space for storing food and a great space if the weather turns on you. The tents themselves are lovely and the log burners are a fantastic addition to stave off the evening and morning chill, you just have to ration your logs or buy a few more if you stay for more than one night. The views were gorgeous and the campfire under the stars was just what we wanted. Was the perfect place for our hen do and everyone who came has said they want to go again.

Fabulous week at excellent glamping site, we stayed Mon-Friday. Craig was great host, lots of places to visit locally from the site. As there are only 4 places available , it feels very relaxing, clean and is dog friendly. Bedding supplied and all the BBQ and cooking equipment we needed.

We loved our long weekend spent at Tamsin and Craig’s beautiful glamping site. The selection of tents/huts/barrels are perfect for a couple or small family. Everything you need and more is provided on your arrival and it’s immaculately clean and tidy. There’s also plenty of amenities within the kitchen/bathroom/barn area. We also enjoyed their biking experience... highly recommend for novice or experienced bikes! Thanks you Tamsin and Craig ☺️

Immaculate luxury bell tents and wooden camping huts. We had a big group and took their Barrel (which is the only one to have electricity), hut and one tent. Small log burners in each hut or tent were a godsend on a very chilly April night and the duvets and blankets felt very plush so we were nice and warm despite the cold weather. The covered BBQ area was huge (with several BBQs) and had a great firepit with wooden pallet seats around it. We spent hours sitting round the fire in the evening. The facilities were fairly basic but the overall ambience was lovely. Each tent/hut has its own decking with firepit and a few chairs to lounge in and admire the beautiful view. Finally Tamsin could not have been more friendly or accommodating. We will be back. PS We are mountain bikers and Bike Park Wales is only a 10 minute drive away. I'm told the local riding is fantastic too.
