Property code: 54008

Quirky tree tent set within an 81-acre estate, perfect to be at one with nature and disconnect from the hectic world for a while.

One of two tree tents, Wy Y Ddraig, meaning “Dragon Egg”, is bright red, the other being the original green, Red Kite Tree Tent - Ynys Affalon, which are located off- grid in this wonderful, remote, woodland location. Each are set in their own private surroundings and can be found beside a small babbling stream and located centrally between the Brecon Beacons, Builth Wells and Llandrindod Wells. This location makes it perfect for long countryside walks through forests and valleys, mountain biking, fishing and canoeing. Bring your own yoga mat to work in the open air, as the lower platform provides the space, peace and quiet. The regions are punctuated by mountains and hills. For local shops and other amenitie,s be sure to stop at Newbridge-on-Wye. Llandrindod Wells is also worth a visit for its spa and museums. A former resort in Victorian times it has retained its look and much of its heritage. Another visitor highlight in the wider area is the buried jewel of the Brecon Beacons, Dan-yr-Ogof Caves.

This compact tree tent and large open air, mezzanine living platforms will be sure to captivate you from the first glimpse through the trees. Down a small bank to the site the tent and living area is acessed via a long sweeping wooden path. The tent itself contains a wood burner to keep you warm throughout your stay (an initial supply of logs is provided). Relax in the comfortable double bed at the end of your day and get a good night's rest. The insulated tent is warm and cosy so there is no fear of a cold night and it's a great place to relax to the soft sway of the winds and the sounds of nature outside, should you just want to relax and take a rest after exploring. Stepping outside of the tent itself and across the small platform, you will find an enclosed open air shower area, complete with electric shower. The open-air facilities deck has a large table, perfect for enjoying a fried breakfast or one pot wonder. The outdoor cooking area provides a two burner gas hob, sink with hot and cold running water, where you can make your cup of tea or coffee in the morning, a whistling kettle, crockery, cutlery and cafetiere. There is also a cool box for convenience. Use the lower deck to set up your yoga mat. Walking down from the living platform, next to the stream, you will find a welcoming fire pit - great for a BBQ along with small platform which can be used as a table or for seating. Alongside the fire pit are handcrafted seats made from tree trunks spaced around the area. Up the slope a little to give extra privacy, you'll find an enclosed WC. If accommodation is required for additional guests, the second tree tent also sleeping 2 people is Red Kite Tree Tent - Ynys Affalon.

Parking is available approximately 10m away, with the tent and living areas down a grassy bank.

We have just spent a very peaceful 3 nights in the Red Kite tent -it's so secluded. The tent was surprisingly comfortable and it had everything we needed. We would definitely recommend this to anyone who just wants to get away from the hustle of every day life!

This is such a special place, ideal for some r&r in such beautiful surroundings. The closest you can be at one with nature whilst still enjoying the home comforts.

It was very relaxing and was lovely to have the sheep and lambs wondering around. Make sure food is packed away as a couple of squirrels liked to help themselves

Our stay in the Red Kite Tree Estate was private, relaxing and magical. A chilly start to April, but warm enough at night with the log burner. We even had a few sunny days during our stay, and made the most of reading and drinking champagne by the fire pit at the stream seating area. Fantastic time.
