Interesting, Different Retreats Promise Excitement
These retreats resemble an imaginative fantasy world, because each one is built in a creative way. Check out Dragon’s eye, for example, and you’ll see how it got its name!
All eight cabins are currently the focus of a new Channel 4 documentary called ‘Cabins in the Wild’ (every Sunday at 8pm).
The designs were chosen through a competition tender which invited architects from across the world to design unique glamping units themed on the mythology, tradition and beauty of Wales.

Relax on the round rotating bed and enjoy a stunning view of the beautiful Welsh landscape through the full height glass ‘eye.’ Or catch up in the warmth of the wood burner while protected from the elements by the sheep’s wool insulation. End the day with a hot shower in the walk-in wet room clad in reclaimed slate tiles.
Stylishly blending in with its surroundings, the cave — which features a large sliding glazed door — is an alluring hideaway from the elements, while locally sourced sheep’s wool insulation and a log fire will keep you warm whatever the weather.
Like a tipi, a simple timber frame supports a canvas skin, shaped into a traditional hat. Its spacious design can accommodate fellow campers for dining, entertainment or storytelling, while the apron pulls out to welcome arriving guests. At the end of the day, retire to the king-size bed in the top of the hat for a comfortable snooze or a spectacular view of the stars through the roof dome.
