Glamping 101: What to Pack for Your Upcoming Glamping Break

forumNo Comments

Packing for any holiday can be a stressful experience – especially if you’re busy and packing often gets left until the last minute. Packing for your glamping break can be even more challenging, as glamping sites can vary greatly; from the very basic sites that provide just the essentials, to luxurious sites that cater for your every want and need. We highly recommend taking some time to plan what you will take with you on your upcoming glamping break…


As Light as a Feather

We suggest packing lightly for your glamping trip, as this will minimize the time spent washing and unpacking upon your return. Your belongings will be much easier to store and carry around with you and choosing outfits each day will be simpler. And when you’re due to leave, re-packing will be so much quicker and easier!


What’s Included at Llanthony Castaway?

Retreat to the beautiful Brecon Beacons, where a pair of retired railway carriages combine to create our gorgeous glamping cabin for two. We provide all the essentials you could need for a truly relaxing stay, as well as a few added luxuries:

  • Private farm track with parking right outside the carriage
  • Compact kitchen and dining area with two electric rings, oven/grill, fridge/freezer, and all the pots, pans, and utensils you could ever need
  • Complimentary welcome hamper containing newly laid free-range eggs, bread, butter, tea, coffee, and milk
  • Cleaning supplies including washing up liquid, cloths, and tea towels
  • Living area with a traditional log burner, with all logs and kindling provided
  • Pack of cards, board games, and books on the local area supplied
  • USB charging points to charge your phones and other devices
  • Bedroom area with a king-sized bed and built-in storage, with all bed linen provided
  • En-suite bathroom with hot shower and flushing toilet – towels supplied with a heated towel rail to keep them toasty warm
  • Complimentary toiletries of handmade shampoo and fragrant soaps
  • Private outdoor garden and decking with fire pit BBQ


What to Pack for Llanthony Castaway

Although we do supply most essential items, there are still a few things you will need to pack for your upcoming staycation at Llanthony Castaway:

  • All-weather clothing (the British weather can be unpredictable at best!)
  • Walking boots and/or wellies (we are situated on a working farm, after all)
  • Waterproof coat (it tends to rain quite a bit here in Wales…)

  • Nightwear and/or slippers and dressing gown
  • Books and/or magazines
  • Camera
  • Backpack for days out
