Treetop Glamping Holiday
Hello and welcome
Looking for a special glamping holiday? Our treetop glamping accommodation By the Wye is on the border between mid Wales and Herefordshire. Hidden in the heart of Hay on Wye, elevated in clearings between trees, on the bank of the River Wye is where you will find our luxury treetop Safari Tent Accommodation. Off-Grid woodland glamping accommodation, perched on platforms, floating out above the woodland floor, relax on the deck with the River Wye babbling at your feet and the expanse of the Brecon Beacons dark sky reserve glittering overhead.
Allow your days to float by effortlessly
Come for a Hay-cation Holiday in Hay on Wye! The treetop glamping accommodation in Hay on Wye is as beautiful as it’s riverside location. Thoughtfully positioned Safari Tents are elevated on stilts so you sleep up in the tree canopy. Combining the rustic eco-friendly practicalities of a campsite, we allow families and couples to enjoy the luxury of a boutique hotel with the comforts of home, under canvas. Important to note is that due to the nature of By the Wye; being a quiet woodland escape, we do not accept bookings for parties, or single sex group bookings or hen/stag do’s (see terms and conditions). Badgers, foxes, otters and a huge amount of birdlife call the woods their home and it is for this reason we do not accept dogs at By the Wye.
Each eco-friendly glamping tent has its own en-suite bathroom, complete with hot running water, flushing loo and basin and power showers. Need more accommodation? Add a scout-style tent to your booking, pitched directly on the deck of the main safari tent, a perfect solution for larger families. Our treetop glamping site offers luxury accommodation under canvas with all the creature comforts and the wilderness on your doorstep. Come for a holiday and escape from the world.
Cook up a storm
Who said camping means sacrificing your food choices? At By the Wye our glamping accommodation includes everything you need to make delicious Instagram-worthy delights. Whether you’re a first-time camper or an accomplished boy scout, our accommodation caters for all levels of culinary adventure. At the heart of each tent is a fully equipped kitchen with a wood-burning stove, keeping the cosy interior warm in all weathers while providing one of the means of cooking. There’s also a handy 2 ring gas hob in the tents for those quick cuppa’s, family sized cool box, tall enough to store the essential wine and a fire-pit on the deck for alfresco cook-ups.
