The meadows at Seventh Heaven are 16 acres of agricultural land that are used exclusively for glamping, that means no livestock or machinery from April to October each year. But although the fields are left to their own devices, each tent has its own small lawn and paths are mown from the tents to the barn and car park to keep your feet that much drier on wet days. We like to keep the fields and hedgerows as wild as they can be having your tent located in its own little tidy island.
The surrounding fields and woodlands are home to hares, foxes, rabbits, badgers and a few pheasants. Each May we are visited by the cuckoo and on still summer evenings the woodpecker is to be heard clearly.
Being surrounded by countryside means that the site is also forever changing. During spring we have hares boxing in the meadows, mid-summer sees wild flowers and birds of all types. Then in late summer the fields are cut for hay leaving the site looking different once again.
I could go on and on and on about how wonderful this place is – but unless you have been, you will never know, and that’s a shame for you! So do something about it…

When nature calls in a different way we have two composting toilets that look and works just like a normal toilet, they’re virtually odourless and both located in separate timber sheds, one by the tents and the other near the barn. We have a roof-less, hot outdoor shower (behind a full all-round privacy screen of course!) which has views of Snowdon. Otherwise we have a conventional shower in a timber shed where there is also a wash hand basin, mirror etc.
If the weather takes a turn for the worst we have all corners covered to make your glamping break a successful one! Our 250 year old stone barn once used as a milking parlour houses a fully equipped kitchen with hot and cold water and a relaxing area and a large wood-burning stove.
The facilities consist of a kettle, gas stove and hob, microwave, toaster, a fridge and fridge freezer plus a sink with hot and cold running spring water. The dining table seats 10 people (but there’s plenty more room elsewhere in the barn) and the large pine dresser is full of mugs, cups, glasses, cutlery, crockery and a range of cooking utensils.
The building is ideally suited for large groups who wish to dine together without having to leave the site.
There will be no electricity in the your tent (you are camping after all!) but if you wish to charge laptops, phones etc the barn has a number of power points.
Many guests are surprised to learn that this corner of Wales has so much to offer. The area has many, many attractions (click here for more info) to suit all tastes, that’s why we suggest you stay for at least 3 nights to make the most of your stay. Read more about the local area here >
