Living art: A hot tub underneath the stars with a Breconian backdrop.
Llangadog Carmarthenshire SA19 9LA 01550 777 368
There’s an old saying at Mandinam: "If you’re not bothered, then I don’t give a damn". No, Marcus, the owner, isn't that apathetic. His Mandinam motto simply means as long as his guests don’t have a worry, then neither does he – and so the fun begins, as you’re given free reign to do whatever you want within his 450 acres of indefectibly idyllic Welsh farmland, literally in the middle of nowhere. Either one of Mandinam's idyllic wooden huts offers privacy in droves, as well as a view destined to hurt your eyes if you stare at it too much: gaping-wide, green rolling hills – hills for days on end. Once you snap out of your scenic trance, and step inside your chosen abode, prepare to coo like a giddy child at how dainty and cosy it is. Every inch of both huts are beautifully furnished and equipped, from the mini kitchenette with butler sink to the traditional wood-burning stove, and even come with fresh lavender to aid a peaceful night’s slumber. The only things you’ll need to concern yourself with is when to light the barbecue and what time to climb into the hot tub, which sits adjacent to the gypsy caravan. Welsh legend has it that ‘Mandinam’ means ‘a place without blemish’ or ‘untouched holy place’, and after one night’s stay here, you begin to see why. We're certain you'll be booking your next stay at this isolated rural retreat before you even start packing up to go home.

You can either take the M4 and A483, or the more scenic A40, to Ashfield. Then take the A4069 into Llangadog, take a left on to High Street and then a slight right on to Pen-y-graig Road. After taking a right-hand turn after the cemetery, after a mile and a half you’ll see Mandinam signposted on the left.
April–end of October.
