Property code: BN433

Retreat to this serene haven for a trip to remember with fishing and canoeing on site and a woodland of chestnut and rowan trees all around. It’s an enchanting holiday let that allows guests to relax and get back to nature.

This quirky retreat provides the perfect opportunity to fully switch off, surrounded by nature in a magical setting at the northern tip of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Wake up to the sound of birds singing in the trees and enjoy a pre-breakfast dog walk through the secluded forest. You’ll be just 0.5 miles from the book-lovers town of Hay-on-Wye, where you can peruse the eclectic mix of independent shops, wander along the river and go wild-water swimming with the pups at The Warren.

The pretty, wood-clad glamping pod has been cleverly designed to maximise the interior space. A comfy sofa sits in front of a roaring wood burner, with plenty of room for the hounds to stretch out on the colourful rug. Sit here with a glass of wine or enjoy a meal around the dining table and take in your tranquil surroundings through the floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors. Both bedrooms feature vibrant fabrics and have large geometric windows, allowing you to quietly observe the forest waking up for the day from the comfort of your own bed. You and your furry buddies are welcome to explore the site and there is a BBQ available if you fancy a spot of al fresco dining under the stars.

It’s easy to while away a lazy afternoon pottering around Hay-on-Wye. It’s packed with independent shops and cafes, many of which happily welcome canine visitors. From the town centre, follow the signs to the river to paddle in the water at The Warren or take a long walk along the banks of the River Wye. Just outside the town, you’ll find Hay Bluff (3 miles). This magnificent hill in the Black Mountains straddles the Wales/England border and a climb to its summit rewards you with splendid views over the Wye Valley.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

A beautiful hideaway in the woods. Perfect for a quiet escape but with enough on the doorstep to keep you busy. More than enough room for all of us (2 adults, a teen and a dog). The Cocoon was really well equipped with everything we could possibly need. The fire was even built and ready to light. The bathroom is small but perfectly formed with a suRead morerprisingly powerful shower. A truly beautiful place with a very warm welcome. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. Hide

Cocooned within the woodland providing a very tranquil hideaway. The two bedrooms are a great size and provide a comfortable, cosy bed after a day exploring. Even blankets to snuggle up with on large bean bags to emmerse yourself in a good book. The woodburner provides a huge amount of heat we discovered. The kitchen is a perfect size with everythiRead moreng you need including cloths and washing up liquid. The shower provides a lovely powerful, hot blast with eco gel. Great location for Hay & the Wye Hide

The Cocoon is a well equipped large family sized cabin with a secluded location, beautiful view and access to stunning walks. The whole experience was well organised, friendly and helpful and certainly one that will stay with me and my partner, and our dog (who had a fantastic time).

The Cocoon at Raquety Farm is set in a stunning location. It felt like we were the only people in the world. Yes the kitchen is basic and there is no TV but that is exactly what we were looking for. We actually managed to do a lamb and pork cooked dinner with all the trimmings on Easter Sunday for four people, just by using the 2 gas burners, the ARead moreir Fryer and the BBQ, so it's not an issue at all. Ros, the owner is lovely and the accommodation is beautiful. Loved the log fire too! Hide
