Each one is sited in its own paddock providing seclusion and privacy for couples.

"Having started with one cabin, this relatively young profitable business is in its sixth season and given that the latest luxury cabin, Wild Honey Hyde has only just come online this summer, there is still plenty of room for future growth. Offa’s Pitch has been featured on national TV and the Sunday Times as the best of UK luxury glamping, and all of the cabins have received Gold standard awards from Visit England annually for accommodation excellence."

Offas Pitch - The first of the three cabins, is designed to look like a large tent, pitched in the open countryside and built by a local Welsh oak frame company. The internal design is retro-scandi with clean lines and oak beams throughout the unit, offering vaulted ceilings and curved archways. To the side of the cabin is a raised patio and seating area with a private wood-burning Norwegian hot tub where guests can sit in this dark-sky location and stargaze.

The exterior is clad in English elm that continues to age to a natural silvery grey colour. The outside space again includes a Norwegian wood burning hot tub to relax in and enjoy the wonderful views over the pastureland and hills beyond.

Wild Honey Hyde - This cabin, situated on the hillside, is raised on stilts and affords the most exceptional views of the surrounding countryside. It is clad with larch that has undergone the Japanese wood charring process Shou Sugi Ban and then tinted a colour to produce an effect the Japanese call Karafurutaiger.
