STAY AT GLAMPING WALES, THE CLOSEST glamping TO THE HAY FESTIVAL
About the Hay Festival
Hay Festival is one of the world’s biggest and best literary festivals. Attracting 100,000 plus visitors, it is held for 11 days during the May Half Term holidays, and it’s right on our doorstep!
The Hay Festival hosts around 800 events and allows you to engage with the world’s great writers, poets, philosophers, historians, scientists, comedians and musicians.
The line-up is so diverse, there’s always something that appeals to every possible interest and age-group.
Stay at Glamping Wales
Located just a 3-5 min walk from the Festival gates, Glamping Wales takes over a cosy corner in an existing campsite. We have a small set up of just 18-20 Bell tents. Which allows us to provide a more personal service. Hay is currently the only festival we pitch at, which means we can put all our efforts into getting this one just right
Using our experience of running Wye Glamping, we have tried to make the Bell tents as inviting and comfortable as possible, so despite being a ‘pop up’ site, there are no airbeds and no sleeping bags. In our spacious, and breathable tents you’ll find futon beds with snuggly duvets, crisp 100% cotton bedlinen and towels, and carpeted floors. Bunting and fairy lights complete the cosy atmosphere. Each of these can sleep up to 4 making them perfect for families or groups of friends but equally couples who like a bit of space.
We recently took over slightly more of the field which means our tents are nicely spaced out, allowing some privacy from neighbours, and plenty of space to sit outside on one of our many deckchairs to enjoy the Welsh countryside.
We also provide a continental breakfast included in the price of your stay, along with access to tea and coffee facilities 24 hrs a day, all hosted in our warm and welcoming marquee. This doubles as a café/bar during the day, with sofas, board games and newspapers, making it the perfect place to retreat to with a beer and a good book during or after a busy day at the festival.
Our site is very family friendly and parking is included.
