The Geodome at Argoed Barns offers ultimate glamping in a generous 8m geodesic dome situated in the Brecon Beacons in Mid Wales.
This is the perfect place to escape from it all for a special romantic break. It is equipped with a brass bed for a restful nightís sleep in crisp cotton bedding on a goose down topper. A wood burning stove adds to the cosy atmosphere with armchairs to relax in and a dining area to enjoy the meals created in the well-equipped kitchen. Rugs and animal skins litter the floor and feel sumptuous underfoot. Lighting is provided by candles and lanterns, creating a romantic mood. Whilst supper is cooking, you may wish to peruse a book, play a game of cards or Scrabble; perhaps pore over a map to plan your itinerary for the next day. Thereís even a wind-up radio so that you can listen to the weather forecast or your favourite program.
Cooking utensils, crockery, cutlery and glassware are all provided along with a large cool-box complete with ice packs and a wine cooler. Thereís a camping cookbook to give you ideas although we recommend that you rein in your culinary ambitions to fare that can be cooked on the double gas ring.
Simple washroom facilities (Ty Bach) are provided a few feet away, including a very smart self composting loo, wash basin and gas powered shower using water from our own bore hole; there is simply nothing taken from The Grid at The Dome. In addition to towels and luxury Myddfai products, bathrobes and clogs are provided to make the trip back to the Dome after a nice hot shower. An Ordnance Survey map centralised on the local area is mounted on the wall beside the loo so you can ponder your next move, whilst the windows have been strategically positioned to maximise your enjoyment of the stunning views Ė nothing has been left to chance.
When youíve been out all day, whether it be walking in the hills, visiting local attractions or perusing the book shops in Hay, itís lovely to return for a hot shower and then sit outside to watch the sun set over the hills and unwind with an early evening drink. If itís a clear night, there is something magical about reclining on the steamer chairs beside the fire bowl with a glass of wine (or mug of hot chocolate) and gazing up at the stars; it is a Dark Sky Reserve after all.
