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.
