Time for two…

Under the Oak Glamping has proved very popular with couples. It’s not surprising really – everything about the safari tent says romance. The incredible Welsh box bed is always a hit.  The love tub- our cosy, wood fired hot tub – is perfectly quiet so you can sit back and watch the sun go down and the stars come out. Some people like to take a stroll with the dogs, others prefer to chill on the veranda with a few drinks and admire the fabulous panoramic view of the South Wales hills stretching down to the sea in the distance.

If you’ve come for a getaway with your significant other, we’ve come up with a few ideas of places you might want to visit, things you might want to see while you’re staying with us…

Waterfall Country, Pontneddfechan

There are several trails you can follow to take in these amazing falls so take your pick, depending how energetic you’re feeling! A must see is Sgwd-yr-Eira where you can walk right behind the waterfall. It’s a beautiful and unique experience and many of our visitors have raved about their day out exploring the falls.

Cardiff Bay

Whether you want to eat, drink or wander, Cardiff Bay has it all. One hundred years ago the docklands were the hub of the world’s coal industry, transporting millions of tonnes of coal across the globe. The docks were left to decay after the decline of the coal industry, but have now been reborn into a popular tourist attraction. Y Senedd, the national assembly building, and the striking Millenium Centre are both at the centre of the bay and Mermaid Quay has shops and restaurants from French to Turkish to Indian cuisine and many more. Perfect for a day or night out!


Pen y Fan

If walking is your thing then this is the day out for you. Pen y Fan is the highest peak in south Wales, situated in the Brecon Beacons National Park. At 886 metres above sea-level, it is also the highest British peak south of Cadair Idris in Snowdonia. The twin summits of Pen y Fan and Corn Du at 873 m were formerly referred to as Cadair Arthur or ‘Arthur’s Seat’. Choose your route, depending on your ability! The circular walk is dog friendly and takes around 2.5 hours. For the fitter and more adventurous, the horseshoe ridge route takes around 5 hours.



Castell Coch

We are a spoilt for choice when it comes to castles in Wales. But Castell Coch is a little different from your average ruin. While resting on ancient foundations, Castell Coch  is relatively modern. The ‘eccentric genius’ William Burges was given free rein by his paymaster, John Patrick Crichton-Stuart, the 3rd marquess of Bute, to create a rural retreat to complement the opulence of his main residence, Cardiff Castle. He didn’t hold back. Dazzling ceilings, over-the-top furnishings and furniture were liberally applied.


Taff Valley Quad Bike and Activity Centre

Once you’ve relaxed and unwound at Under the Oak, why not get the adrenaline pumping at Taff Valley? It’s not just quad bikes, although they are pretty awesome! They offer a massive range of outdoor  activities including archery, clay pigeon shooting, an assault course and laser shooting. Check out their website for more info..
