discover peace · contemplate the wild

Unique, peaceful luxury in the heart of wild countryside. Explore a stunning part of the Welsh coast from carefully crafted accommodation with an infectious appreciation of local culture, history and art creating a perfect retreat of relaxation.

hide has three romantic snug Cabans, a Bugail (Shepherds) Hut and ‘Walden’ Lodge tucked between trees, bushes and wildflowers offering uninterrupted views of the wild seas. Our wish is for you to see, feel and be immersed in Wales, with visible reminders of myths, history, poetry and art.

Tresilian Wood is the name of hide’s site with its small arboretum occupying seven and a half acres adjacent to Atlantic College and St. Donats Castle. St Donats is a tiny village in the Vale of Glamorgan, just 25 minutes from the Welsh Capital, an area steeped in history, castles, churches and myths. With vast skies, lush grasslands, woods and the dramatic Jurassic Heritage Coastline hide is special.

Book. All aglow. Relax.

Steve and I want to express our great appreciation to you both for your exceptional hospitality and helpfulness (in so very many ways) during our 5-day visit to Wales. We loved staying in your charming, well appointedcabannes, which far exceeded our expectations. HIDE is a delightful retreat, and you two make it a fantastic experience. We so enjoyed chatting with you and appreciated your recommendations for sightseeing, hikes, and dining. Glamping “HIDE” style is definitely our style. Wishing you continued success at HIDE.
