Rustic Luxury

Just bring yourselves

By the Wye is camping with one important difference, the luxury accommodation is already pitched when you arrive. Safari Tent Layouts come with roaring campfires, beautiful beds, sumptuous sofas, running water, flushing toilets, eco-friendly toiletries and fully equipped kitchens. It’s the ultimate in luxury glamping and is enough to tempt even the most reluctant of campers out into the woods on holiday. Outside the tents is a covered deck area with seating to make the most of the incredible riverside views, there is also a separate picnic table and fire pit for alfresco dining and cooking, except for The Ivy which has a BBQ on the deck instead on a firepit.

Need more accommodation or just fancy a completely different experience? Why not book one of our Unique Tree-Tents which sleep 2 adults. One tent available per booking at a rate of £20 per night. Suspended between trees outside your Safari Tent, sleeping bags and a sense of adventure required.

The campsite in Hay on Wye is cosy, comfortable and environmentally sustainable being off grid with everything running from Solar Energy and generators. The campsite is designed to minimise impact on the environment in the surrounding woodland, as such many areas left been left untouched as nature reserves and SSSI’s attracting an abundance of wildlife. And it’s for this reason we provide you with your luxury bathroom products and washing up liquid – all eco-friendly and chemical free. So please don’t bring your own unless they are bug friendly.

Glamping with Dogs

Man and woman’s best friends

We understand that dogs are part of the family and By the Wye is a perfect countryside location for your dog-friendly holiday. There will be an abundance of new walks to go on, a river to splash in as well as new sights and smells to investigate before your dog returns with you in the evening to finally rest in the tent.

We welcome up to two dogs to stay in our specially designed Holly Tent, which has a large secure decking and seating area.

Dogs should be added to your holiday during the booking process. Up to two dogs can accompany you at a cost of £20 each for however long you stay. Dogs cannot roam free throughout the camp and must be on leads or long tethered when not in your accommodation.


Eveyone is welcome

At By the Wye we want to make everyone’s holiday as enjoyable as possible, and are committed to providing suitable access for all our guests, whatever their individual needs.

We aim to accurately describe our glamping facilities and services to give you the confidence to book the right canvas cottage for your specific requirements. We currently have two tents that are fully wheelchair accessible and are working towards a fully accessible site.
