Families, take your pick. On the one hand, you could opt for the wonderful Gilestone Farmhouse. It’s comfortable, brimming with character, and has space for cousins, grandparents and the dogs. One the other hand, why not eschew bricks and mortar for a while, get a little closer to nature and go for Gilestone Glamping. The children will pitch in with collecting wood for the fire, then they’ll race across the field to make a den, or play on the 1920s tractor. If it’s (uncharacteristic for Wales) raining, play board games, take a trip to the multitude of attractions in the area, or just dress for the weather and enjoy it.



The secret to fabulous extended-family trips is space. And along with the seven bedrooms, Gilestone Farmhouse has 2 sitting rooms and a conservatory so that music, board games, the piano and charades can all be played in harmony, simultaneously. To make life easier, there is a travel cot and high chair, together with plenty of games and puzzles and an enclosed garden.

Gilestone Glamping is perfectly geared up for children and their parents. There are 3 lodges, sleeping 4 or 6 , each with an en-suite bathroom. It’s the perfect balance of the freedom and at-one-with-nature feeling of camping, but with electricity, running water, proper bedrooms (which are dark when the curtains are down!) with sumptuous beds.
