Wilderness Camping And Glamping
The Wonderful Wilderness is our tiny Wild Campsite run from our little 50 acre upland farm in the heart of Wales. It is tiny family business in every sense of the word, and completely independent. It is run by myself, Carly, and Steve my amazing partner, who might meet around the farm delivering wood for your cosy secluded campfire.
We moved to Wales some years ago now, with the dream of bringing up our 5 children in the gorgeous countryside, in a caring, close-nit community. This stunning area did not disappoint, and certainly has it all - greenery in every direction, endlessly twinkling darks skies, cute streams, rustic waterfalls, super friendly people and diverse wildlife which thrives in this untouched haven in mid Wales.
We have both always had a passion for the outdoors, and we want to share this slice of beauty and provide the perfect wilderness holiday destination for people that enjoy the simple things in life.
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 5 wild camping pitches and 4 large group pitches, and have positioned them so there is vast distance between them.
So, pick your perfect wild camping pitch, or snuggle up in our cosy glamping Hut or beautiful Bell Tent, and just relax under the stars and enjoy the wilderness ready for the day ahead - doing as little or as much as you wish!

“We stayed for three nights of R&R off grid, and was the perfect location to switch off in the rural countryside. The hut is perfectly equipped, beautifully furnished and the bed is so comfy! The babbling brook is the ideal sound to fall asleep to. Overall 10/10 for my fiest trip to Wales!! "

"This place is honestly amazing. Toally off grid and allows you to immerse yourself in the perfect surroundings. Our young boys and dog had a fab time roaming free. This is going to be our new bolt hole, already looking at dates to come back..."
