Seasons Greetings!

We hope you are all enjoying the festive period and spending time with loved ones at family celebrations. Why not carry on celebrating and plan family holidays to look forward to in 2024 with a glamping gathering in Wales. Book a stay at By the Wye, go off-grid and let the children run free to explore the woods. Whether with your own extended family or as a group of family friends, create lasting memories at By the Wye; browse the book-town of Hay-on-Wye and explore the Brecon Beacons National Park and take a look at all the family activities you can enjoy during your stay. Pack your adventurous spirit, escape to nature and sleep in luxury beneath the stars.

We’ve hand-picked these activity recommendations with our family holidays in mind. Whatever your interests, there’s something for you and whilst minimum numbers do apply for some, if you’re interested in any of the family activities just let us know and we’ll see if we can build a group for you. Here’s a taster of the activities you can book on your family holidays this summer:

Family Holidays in Hay-on-Wye

Group Glamping

The stunning surroundings of By the Wye is perfect for big groups and family holidays; our luxury glamping site is perfect for getting everyone out into nature in style and offers all manner of activities, including fishing, walking, bushcraft and canoeing. The town of Hay-on-Wye is a short walk away and the Brecon Beacons National Park on our doorstep for exploring. Make some lifelong memories with friends, families and loved ones by planning a reunion, birthday or anniversary gathering in 2023.

Our safari tents sleep up to 6 people, but if you are looking for larger accommodation, there is a tree-top walkway connecting two of our SAFARI TENTS; The Ivy and Meadow, so if you are a family group of 10 people this could be an ideal option for your next group glamping holiday. In other exciting news, we have added another Safari Tent to our collection called River which sleeps up to 6 people and is wheelchair accessible. So in total, we now have accommodation for 28 people in total, ideal for group glamping gatherings.
