Hide @ St Donats has received a ‘Quality Assured Glamping Site Gold Award’ by Visit Wales, and have introduced two new glamping experiences to their site.


Set in the heart of the countryside, the glamping site can offer peaceful luxury from where the beautiful southern Welsh coast and country can be explored. Located near Atlantic College and St Donats Castle, it is 25 minutes away from the Welsh capital.

The site has 5 quality units which can house up to 12 guests. All have been carefully crafted appreciating Welsh culture, history and art.

There are three cabans, and the new Shepherd's Hut and new Walden lodge to choose from.

The Walden Lodge has been designed to incorporate its Welsh-American connections and can sleep up to four guests. It provides views from the balcony of the Quantock Hills and channel.

The Bugail Hut, otherwise known as the Shepherd's Hut is in a secluded arboretum which is sheltered by a tulip tree. The large windows allow the occupants to wake up and be surrounded by nature. The Hut accommodates up to 2 guests.

The Cabans, can sleep 2 guests and are tucked between wildflowers, bushes and trees and again, provide views across the channel. Appropriately named Dyllas, Llwynon and Meiros after South Wales mines as ‘caban’ was the name given to Welsh mining cabins.

Guests can also choose to relax in the Hide Pavillion which offers breakfast and evening drinks. The focal point of the room is a stained glass window which depicts the history, myths and sense of the place.


All accommodation and the Pavillion have a unique fire pit which allows guests to also enjoy the outdoors in the outdoors!
