Penhein, LLANVAIR DISCOED, Chepstow, NP16 6RB
Travel along a narrow lane and through two grazing fields to reach a small wood where there are large yurts (alachighs) and an Iranian communal yurt. The sumptuous yurt interiors have superb beds (a double, two truckle beds and a sofa bed for children), quality dining furniture, lanterns, a cold water sink, a large cool box and a wood-burning stove (wood provided), plus an en suite modern, low-level toilet. Outside each yurt there is a fire pit and carved tree-trunk seating. There are level bark pathways between the units, and a lean-to with kettle, microwave and freezer as there is no electricity in the yurts. The separate shower block has a drying room and unisex rooms with underfloor heating, monsoon showers and roll-top bath. The communal yurt has a wood-burning stove, bespoke oak tables, benches and electricity to power 13 amp sockets and lighting. On arrival visitors are provided with a welcome pack, and there is a wild meadow for archery, bike riding and orienteering.
