Glamping at Strawberry Skys Yurts is nestled in the rolling hills of Powys, Wales and is set in 10 acres of glorious Welsh countryside about 8 miles west of Welshpool. The site looks out across the Cambrian and Berwyn mountains and you only need to be here at sunset to understand the name. Our beautiful, secluded hideaway an ideal location for a wonderful glamping holiday in Wales. Whether you want to simply relax and unwind in a tranquil, peaceful setting or have an adventure in nature’s great playground, our secluded yurt camping site has everything you need for a unique, magical, glamping experience in Wales. While here you can spend uninterrupted, quality time with family and loved ones, unhurried and far removed from the pressures of day-to-day living. You can spend an evening under the stars, chatting around the campfire and toasting marshmallows. And the next morning, you can wake to beautiful, unspoilt natural scenery, a skyline framed by mountains and a quiet tranquility broken only by birdsong.
With three traditional Mongolian yurts and our new wooden yurt you will never feel cramped or hurried on our yurt camping site. You simply relax enjoy your yurt holiday at your own pace. Children can roam free, exploring their natural surroundings, or brush up on their outdoor survival skills, gathering wood, building campfires or rustling up an alfresco feast on the barbecue. If you want to venture into the surrounding area there’s a wealth of family friendly activities to experience including cycling, kayaking, narrow gauge railways, canal boat trips, sea side and mountains, as well as plenty of excellent pubs, restaurants and shops in the nearby market towns and villages.
Our traditional Mongolian yurts are set quite apart from each other in a gently sloping field with mature cherry and willow trees, so you can enjoy the peacefulness of the site without interruption from other guests. Perhaps more importantly we are a small, low-impact site with only a few yurts so you will never feel rushed, or crowded. Each yurt is built on raised wooden platforms, felt lined and heated by a woodburner so the yurts are amazingly warm all year round for the perfect glamping yurt experience.
This amazing wooden yurt has been hand built by a local craftsman to our specification. The yurt is built from cedar and has a large dome skylight, perfect for star gazing from your bed.

THE KITCHEN AND COOKING
In a separate paddock from the yurts is a communal log cabin kitchen for you to use during your yurt holiday. The yurt kitchen is fully equipped with all the crockery, cutlery, pots, pans and glasses you should need. As well as a two gas cookers, a kettle and toaster, each yurt has its own individual fridge and food storage baskets. We also provide washing up liquid, dish cloths and tea towels. The kitchen cabin has a covered veranda with a large refectory table and benches from which you can enjoy the view of the rolling hills.
WASHING AND TOILET
We have built a large heated shower and toilet cabin, big enough to shower all the children in one go!. This is situated just outside the yurt field. Inside is a large walk in electric shower, heated towel rail, heater, sink with hot and cold water, a hairdryer, full length mirror and our newly designed compost loo. If you have never used a compost loo before then don’t be scared, it’s not that different to a normal loo just without the flushing!
We also have a second separate shower and washroom close to the cabin kitchen, which is also heated and has an electric shower, heated towel rail, sink and a hairdryer. Plus there is a second compost loo at the bottom of the yurt field. These are all shared facilities for which we provide loo paper and hand wash so that’s one less thing to pack.
INFORMATION ON LOCAL ATTRACTIONS
Inside the yurt kitchen is a leaflet stand with details of local attractions you can visit during your yurt camping holiday, as well as directions on how to walk to our nearest village (Llanfair Caereinion), OS maps, local taxi numbers etc. We want you to enjoy your yurt holiday as much as possible and Eric is nearly always on hand to offer advice on where to go and what to do.
Our large well stocked woodshed contains all the wood for the woodburners in the yurts and campfire pits outside each yurt, plus kindling, wheelbarrows and canvas bags for carrying the wood up to your yurt. And remember, unlike most other yurt holiday campsites there is no charge extra for wood or to use of any of the facilities so you can relax in the knowledge that once you arrive the only thing you risk burning is the sausages on the BBQ and not a hole in your pocket!
LOCAL AREA AND THINGS TO DO
If you are only here for a few nights then after a lie in and breakfast take a walk down to the village to gather supplies. Maybe something from the local butcher and a visit to the pubs to meet some of the locals before heading back to get the BBQ going might be all you really need for a perfectly chilled weekend.
