Wilderness Camping And Glamping


My family have always had a passion for the outdoors, camping, campfires, fresh air and the freedom of the countryside.  Five years ago we decided that waiting for holidays to enjoy the way of life we loved was not enough, so we needed to make a permanent change.  We went in search of somewhere in Wales where the views and countryside are breathtaking, and found this beautiful farm in the middle of nowhere and instantly fell in love with it. We are delighted to say that we now live here with our 4 amazing children.


We are passionate about sharing this slice of beauty and have a vision of providing a perfect wilderness holiday destination for people that enjoy the simple things in life, and, for those that want to enjoy it with a touch of added comfort.


This is the Wonderful Wilderness - Wild Camping and Glamping in the Wilderness of Wales.

Set in 50 acres of unspoilt farmland, the Wonderful Wilderness is a secluded place to enjoy the adventures of  wild camping in the beauty of the Welsh countryside. The farm, Dolygaseg, (Mares Meadow) was in the past a haven for horses worked by coal merchants.  It is an idyllic spot nestled between the river Twrch the Dyfnant forest.

Give yourself time to switch off from it all and relax in this tranquil wilderness setting, listening to the sound of river bubbling past and plentiful wildlife.  Or if you are feeling more energetic, head off for a walk or bike ride in the bordering forest and take in the breath taking views and fresh air.

To make wild camping extra special here at the Wonderful Wilderness, we only have 7 wild camping pitches, and have positioned them so there is vast distance between them. You will not hear your neighbours conversations nor will have people traipsing past you disturbing your privacy.

So, pick your perfect wild camping pitch, or snuggle up in our glamping hut, and just relax under the stars and enjoy the wilderness ready for the day ahead - doing as little or as much as you wish!

“Perfect for a quiet, secluded getaway. Roast marshmallows on the fire while only the sheep look on, and then retire to a warm comfortable hut. Bliss!"

"This wild camping site is absolutely idyllic in every way. I camped next to the river which is amazingly rustic and natural, all I could hear every night was the gushing waters...amazing."
