Llanthony Castaway


Retreat to the Dark Sky Reserve of the Brecon Beacons, where a pair of retired railway carriages join together to make our Castaway glamping cabin for two.

Glamping in the Brecon Beacons

Retreat yourself away in this remote rural getaway for two. The main carriage houses the living area, with a traditional log burner keeping you cosy even in the coldest of months. The compact kitchen and dining area are perfect for intimate meals for two and a comfy king size bed with storage underneath allows you to be organised during your stay. In the adjoining second carriage you will find a generous en-suite shower room with a flushing toilet.

Stargazing in
Dark Skies

A sliding glass door keeps the feel of the railway carriage but allows you to live with the backdrop of the beauty outside, whatever the weather. Sleep with the sounds of Llanthony Valley by night, or slide it back in the morning and invite the sun and the mountain breeze in.

For lovers of stargazing, Brecon Beacons is the place – one of 18 Dark Sky Reserves worldwide. Step outside to your own private garden and deck, where you can enjoy long evenings and al fresco dining on your fire pit barbecue. We sell homemade beef and lamb burgers and sausages and eggs fresh from our farm, so your food miles here can be more like food metres!
