The Hidden Valley Site
Hidden Valley Yurts is located within Lower Glyn Farm in Monmouthshire – right in the heart of the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Within the borders of our farm at Lower Glyn are a total of 80 acres of woodland and wildflower meadows. You don’t even need to leave the valley if you don’t want to! Children relish the opportunity to build dens in the woods, dam the stream and play on the rope swing, or for a quieter holiday you can relax on the large deck and cook pizzas in the wood burning oven. There are more games than you could ever need (perfect for a rainy day) plus all the equipment you need for boules and badminton. There are miles of beautiful walks around the farm as well. The map below shows some suggested walks but guests are welcome anywhere except for those areas which are marked private which includes areas we are currently developing and our own garden. See our About Us page for more on the history of the site and our plans for the future.
The area has a stunning mix of meadows, ancient woodland and coppiced hazel which provides a habitat for a wide diversity of wildlife. Dormice, badgers and foxes share the land with our highland cows, sheep and a horse. It is also home to many species of butterfly, including the uber-rare ‘Dingy Skipper’ as well as many species of bird (buzzards can be seen circling overhead most days), bees, insects and bats. The gently babbling brook which runs through the valley attracts kingfishers, herons and dippers, plus otters and crested newts have even been spotted by guests here, so be sure to pack your bug boxes and spotters’ guides for a Spring- or Summer-Watch special.
For those that like to see the local area, there are a wealth of activities such as mountain biking, canoeing, horse riding and climbing all within easy reach. For hill climbers the Black Mountains are just a 20 minute drive away. See our Out and About page for more about what to do in the local area.
We hope you choose us for a very special yurt holiday in this fabulous Hidden Valley!
