Imagine a holiday where the night sky is so dark you can see the Milky Way and the only noises are a babbling brook and birdsong. Imagine being surrounded by nature in a beautiful valley far away from road noise and bright lights. That's what you'll find here. Set in 80 acres of meadow and woodland, we have 5 Mongolian yurts which are large, cosy and comfortable, spread out along a field next to a stream, and a separate Lake House, an idyllic home away from home looking out over its own private lake.

Introduction

About Us

In a secluded valley, invisible to the outside world, lies Hidden Valley Yurts and Lake House at Lower Glyn Farm in South Wales. Our glamping site contains 5 Mongolian yurts (3 for up to 6 people and 2 for up to 4 people) stretched along the top of a beautiful, south-facing meadow alongside a stream and The Lake House is our new all year round luxury self-catering holiday accommodation.

Within easy reach of Monmouth, Tintern, Raglan, Usk, Chepstow and other notable spots along the picturesque Wye Valley in South Wales, Hidden Valley Yurts and Lake House is a well-located base for taking in the kind of sites that made the likes of Wordsworth and Turner produce masterpieces. A designated area of outstanding natural beauty, this corner of Wales has definitely been blessed by Mother Nature. But once ensconced in this beauteous valley, tucked away from the outside world at our unique site, it’s hard to tear yourself away. So hard, in fact, you might just wish that the buggy runs out of juice before it takes you back to your car!

Glamping

Step through one of the brightly coloured doors of these innovative homes and you’ll find they are light, cosy and warm. Lovingly decked out with beds, chairs, lights, rugs and wall-hangings each yurt is equipped with a wood-burning stove with kindling and wood for fuel.

Inside the muffled confines of the felt lining, each yurt feels intensely private. Comfortable and unique they entreat you to curl up and unwind, having spent the day wandering around the magical woodland, wildflower-peppered meadows and fields belonging to our 80 acres of land.

Outside, you can relax on your own decking with ample seating and stunning views. A large communal dining deck boasts the kind of veranda that would make Gone-With-The-Wind-type southerners jealous, and provides just the spot for whiling away evenings watching the sunset or playing a board game. Below there’s a boules pitch, badminton net, campfire area, wood-burning pizza oven, safari style dining tent and chicken run where you may collect fresh eggs each day.

Services

The Lake House

Surrounded by beautiful countryside, with a large deck overlooking a private lake, a stream running alongside and woodland behind, The Lake House is a peaceful retreat for those looking to get back to nature without leaving modern conveniences behind.

The Lake House is tucked away in our hidden valley and offers an idyllic getaway in a stunning location. Our new year-round accommodation is separate to the glamping site and offers privacy and luxury.

Fantastic little hidden gem! This was our first break away with friends since covid and we were not disappointed by this place!! Our first time staying here and it’s beautiful. Easy to get to, owner was fantastic and very attentive but not overwhelming. We stayed in the lake house which is just magical! The view was stunning and the lake house itself had everything we needed and it was all high quality furniture (favourite parts were the log burner, flooring and layout, great for us visiting as two couples). It was just so peaceful and there were plenty of birds and wildlife to hear / see on and off the little lake. We went on a walk with he paper map provided which didn’t disappoint, it was a great walk which took us past the highland cows, another highlight of mine!) Great place, great location and we WILL be visiting again!

Ecofriendly haven We stayed for a week in the Lake House, but could have stayed forever! What an amazing place. The bird song and a babbling brook are the only thing to cut into the peace and quiet and they are an absolute dream. The house is very cosy and well equipped. Walks from the door through the valley were idyllic. We particularly enjoyed walking to the 3 nearest pubs. Wifi and a Smart tv were an added bonus if you wished to stay in. Mike was an exceptional host, very personable. We'd love to come back!

Idyllic hidden gem Just returned from an absolutely amazing Bank Holiday weekend. We went with another family, and had two 5 year olds and two 3 year olds between us in yurt 1 and yurt 2. The yurts are beautiful, really well equipped and very cosy with the wood burning stoves. We used the communal pizza oven on the first night which was great and loved by the children. We also had the use of a private kitchen (attached to yurt 1) which again was lovely. The valley is stunning and even though it rained quite heavily on one of the days, it didn't detract at all. The children had a fabulous time exploring, paddling and searching for the Highland cattle. It really was idyllic, thank you so much Mike and looking forward to returning.

Our visit to the lake house As someone who does the packing and all the other numerous tasks to get ready to go away, the holiday doesn’t usually start for me until I’ve finished cleaning to unpack when we get there! But to my joy, my holiday started the minute I got inside the lake house. It was immaculately clean, and so well equipped. We had two teens with us who were over the moon by the luxury in their room and bathroom. The accommodations cannot be faulted. The pond and outside areas are amazing and so full of wildlife which engaged us all. The freedom to explore the woods, and take the walks around the grounds made it for me. We were able to see so much wildlife and fauna found in ancient woodlands. A real treat. An outstanding escape from it all for all ages. Mike is the perfect host, we loved being introduced to his dogs and were made to feel at home. Thanks Mike👍

Welcoming and peaceful Our family of 3 stayed in Yurt 4 over the Easter weekend. It was idyllic! The yurt itself was clean, spacious and extremely comfortable. The wood-burning stove was hugely effective at keeping us all warm through the night. Our decking area had a chimenea and its own BBQ, with charcoal available to buy on site. There was plenty of outdoor furniture for dining and generally lounging about. We had our own bathroom, with loo, shower over bath and sink, in a communal block, which was wonderful, and, again, very clean, with loads of hot water. The kitchen area was shared with Yurt 5, and was very well-equipped and maintained; a dishwasher too! There was a pizza oven and shared BBQ area, with a communal camp fire for the evenings if you wanted to chat to the other campers. The site was truly beautiful, with lots of walks through the valley and up to Llanishen and the Carpenters Arms pub – good Sunday lunch on Easter Sunday. The host, Mike, was friendly and so helpful. As my daughter, turning 16 on Easter Sunday, believed herself too old to join in the egg hunt Mike organised, he went to the trouble of making her some beautiful, glittery eggs and boxing them up. Who could ask for more?! The valley is, indeed, hidden away, but still close enough to a B road for comfort, and also to the food shops of Monmouth and Usk. The fact that cars cannot be parked next to the yurts makes for a very safe site should you have young children. We all agreed that this was the best place we have been ‘glamping’ and hope to be back soon. Thank you, Mike, for creating such a special place to really get away from it all.

The lake house My family and I had booked a long weekend visit to the lake house. It was everything we could have asked for and more, we didn't want to leave. The house itself was well equipped, clean, and well maintained. The surroundings were stunning; you could quite easily loose yourself in the tranquility of it all. We loved exploring the woodland and following the stream, and the views at the top of the hill were spectacular. My two boys (aged 8 & 4) had the best time, equipped with a pair of wellies, binoculars and many sticks that they found, they were engrossed in their play, whether it was wading through the stream, playing Pooh sticks or bird watching, they really didn't need anything else. We enjoyed popping to the local pub for a Sunday roast, which was recommended by the yurt site owner, Mike. The food was delicious. Mike was an excellent host, he was always there if you needed him, but likewise he wasn't too intrusive either, it was the perfect balance. He suffered many a question from our children, but was always happy to answer, and even said that he would leave his bird book out for my eldest son to borrow should we visit again, this made his day. We would definitely love to come back, and would highly recommend a visit here to anybody who has the opportunity. Thank you Mike for an excellent stay.

Wonderful break nestled in nature! We had a fantastic 4 night stay at the Lake House, where we felt completely secluded - exactly what we wanted! Mike is really friendly and welcoming, making sure we had everything we needed, and then leaving us in peace. The house is beautifully done, really comfortable and definitely feels like home (only nicer!!). To have that time where all you can hear is birds, water, and the odd toad is simply perfect. We felt we could take a deep breath and truly relax. It was exactly the escape that we needed and we will certainly be returning! Thanks Mike!Tamsin and Adam
