We stayed here for two nights and Paula was very welcoming and helpful when we arrived.We stayed in the Walden Lodge which was cosy and so tastefully decorated, and it was clean and well equipped. The setting is perfect, so peaceful and quiet. There are plenty of walks and we went to Caerphilly Castle and a nearby National Trust property. If you want peace and quiet in a beautiful setting and lovely accomodation this is perfect
The best way to glamp. Wood burning stove - with an electric blanket on the bed. Warm bathroom and little kitchenette just steps away. Paula and Tom incredibly helpful. High winds and icy cold the night I was there, but tucked up warm and cosy in the caban enjoying the stars, the quiet, birds and rabbits.
December 2017 was our second stay at Hide and despite being colder (and wetter), it was just as enjoyable. Our first trip to Hide was in August when the weather was warm and so the views from our caban were a lot further reaching. Come rain or shine, the caban's are warm and cosy and the hosts Paula and Tom could not be more accommodating. Recommendations for restaurants in the local area as well as in Cardiff were spot on. We will definitely be back in 2018!
Lovely, cosy accomodation, spotlessly clean.
Would question the concept of "uninterrupted" sea views as ours were only really available from one side of the Caban but....i'm splitting hairs.
We'll be back (maybe when the winter's over!)
Thanks for a great couple of nights :-)
This is the standard by which all other glamping experiences should be measured. Both luxurious and absolutely respectful to both its stunning setting and the reason why people come to places like this, namely for peace, tranquility and a back-to-nature experience. The three cabans, lodge and shepherd's hut are well-spaced so there's no over-looking or infringing on your neighbour's privacy. The caban is beautiful decked out with luxury bedding and a gorgeous wood-burner for heat and cosiness. Your private and well-equiped kitchenette is just a few steps away as is your beautifully designed bathroom which is warm, inviting and, frankly, hotel-standard. That's quite a feat for a glamping site! All credit to the fantastic creators and hosts, Paula and Tom. I'll definitley be back.
We stayed two nights in this wonderful retreat from the world. Everything is very carefully and lovingly designed and decorated, breakfast is great and we learnt so much about Wales! Thanks a lot Paula - we will be back!
We have just celebrated my husband's 50th birthday staying in the Bugail Hut for 2 nights .
It was simply perfect!
I planned this weekend surprise using all the helpful information provided on the website and then more personal suggestions from our absolutely wonderful hosts, Tom & Paula.
It's such an escape from busy life and you are surrounded by beautiful nature on site and the stunning nearby coastline, walks, pubs, etc. We also drove into Cardiff on Saturday night to meet up with family for a meal at the Classroom. But couldn't get back to our shepherd's Hut quick enough.
I've a dilemma of singing the praises of such a wonderful place to everyone, combined with keeping this idyllic escape to ourselves. But Paula & Tom deserve praise & recognition for all their hard work.
Many thanks for everything.
