Tucked away in the wilds of Mid Wales lies a small, unspoiled valley surrounded by hills and streams. It was here that a local couple wished to share their love of this place with others and so created a unique camping site with tipis so that people could really get away from it all.

Unlike many of the modern ‘glamping’ sites Cledan Valley was more than canvas shelters in the corner of a field. This really is a wild and natural place. Other than a few strimmed walkways around the nine acre site the grass, trees, and wildlife go about their business as if you were not here. We have an amazing array of flora and fauna and it is possible to see otters, red kites and much more without leaving your tent.

After running the site for fifteen years with the help of their daughter Hywel and Betty wanted to retire and hoped someone would take on the site. We love the valley and we love living outdoors so what better for us to do than continue to ensure this special place remains accessible to people who want to remind themselves of the important things in life. This is a place where adults find big peace and children find big adventure.

If you have visited the valley before you will notice us making some improvements but will be pleased to see that Cledan Valley has lost none of its magic. The tents are still spread generously giving you plenty of space to unwind in peace. There is a new communal yurt with space to eat or play games and we usually have chickens, pigs and lambs to see in the next field. You can even look in one of our beehives during the summer. We want to preserve the peaceful nature of the site so that you can continue making fond memories here just like we do with our family.

We look forward to seeing you, Russ and Karen x
