Cynefin takes shape…

It’s no secret that we love our safari tents at Under the Oak Glamping. And all our visitors love the comfort and cosiness they give you, along with the space to properly chill out, with friends, family or whoever you like!

We shut the tents up over the winter months, due to the fog, the mud and the cold but we still have a lot of people wanting to come and stay. So our thoughts have turned to what we can do next…

After a lot of research, heated discussions, pinterest and mind changes, we settled on a railway carriage. We really love the look of them and relish the challenge of fitting everything we need into a teeny space. Plenty of other people have done it but we want to do it even better! It may be small but there will be a wood burning stove, a shower, a flushing loo, a kitchen, electricity, and a full size bed, along with plenty of special little touches.

Cynefin is a very special Welsh word which perfectly matches our vision. It doesn’t have a direct translation into English but roughly speaking, it means a sense of place, where you feel at one with nature and your surroundings. We hope to capture that feeling for people staying in ‘Cynefin’.

We’ve found the perfect spot for Cynefin, tucked away in a corner so it’s super private, but still with our stunning views of the beautiful Welsh countryside, which every single visitor comments on. An outdoor bathtub will be expertly angled to make the most of the views as you unwind and the firepit is perfect for the adventurous outdoor chefs amongst you. It’s going to be so gorgeous, there’s a good chance you won’t want to leave!

At the moment it’s still very much a work in progress and that progress is sometimes hindered by rain and mud. But we’ll soon be opening up bookings for the season ahead so keep an eye on our social media for updates and announcements!
