A luxurious glamping retreat perfect for families, within verdant farmland surroundings and close to the well-known cycling hub of Talybont-on-Usk, the beautiful River Usk and the Talybont Reservoir.

Get back to nature with this fantastic canvas safari lodge in the Brecon Beacons National Park. Set on a working farm, it is surrounded by wonderful countryside, canal and riverside walks yet just 6.5 miles from the bustling market town of Brecon. Whether you’re nestled beside the roaring wood burner, dining alfresco on the veranda or watching the stars from the wood-fired hot tub, this inside-outside retreat promises memorable getaways for families and friends.

Inside, find a welcoming open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with all the comforts of home. Prepare meals in the timber kitchen area before dining at the retro farmhouse-style table. Afterwards, fire up the wood burner and hunker down under this cosy canvas for an evening of games with the family. As night falls, choose between a queen-sized bedroom, a twin room or climb the ladder into the unique cabin bed area. Stoke up the wood-fired hot tub in the morning and by the evening you will have the perfect place to relax and unwind while planning the following day’s activities. Guests are also welcome to roam the working farm, take out a rowing boat on the pond or even head in for a dip.

Surrounded by picturesque farmland, this glamping retreat is perfect for families of outdoor lovers. Follow a 7.5-mile section of the Taff Trail from the Talybont Reservoir to the bustling market town of Brecon. Here you will find a good selection of independent shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs, while closer to home, Talybont-on-Usk (0.5 miles) offers a choice of pubs and a small shop. Take to the water by hiring a canoe or taking an organised trip along a stretch of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, or you could drive 6.5 miles to walk up to the beautiful Blaen-y-Glyn waterfalls.

Absolutely loved the location and the safari tent. Charles, the owner was very pleasant and gave us lots of information on surrounding area. He was also extremely helpful when we couldnt get our wood-fired hot tub warm enough, and gave us the use of an electric one in one of the lodges that had just been vacated.

Fab pub serving homemade food (The Star) which is 10 min walk up the towpath. Very quiet and relaxing and great just to chill out. Fire pit great for BBQs and all wood and equipment provided for lovely al fresco dining. Nice that Charles just leaves you to it

We absolutely loved our short stay at Dove Lodge. Everything was perfect. The safari tent was clean, the cooking facilities were great as were the comfortable beds!

We absolutely loved our stay in the Dove. Charles was fantastic and our trip couldn't have been any better. The hot tub was a complete luxury and heated up quicker than we expected.
