The Dragon Cruck was created from timber that Mike sourced from working as a tree surgeon. It is a timber framed Cruck building with a joint called the Dragon joint hence its name! It is situated in its own secluded site in a wood above Sunnylea with views down the beautiful Vyrnwy valley.

It will be ready for bookings in summer 2018 so watch this space ! We are curently building the camp kitchen and tree bog.


The Important Stuff

Inside the Dragon Cruck there is a wood burning stove which will keep you warm even on the coldest day. Wood is supplied from Mike’s work as a tree surgeon.  This is a place for peace and quiet, to enjoy the outdoors but with warmth and comfort. The King sized double bed has spectacular views down the vyrnwy valley.  There are candles in lanterns and solar lights, as well as the glow from the fire, to light the cabin. This is camping, but luxurious camping!




The Dragon Cruck is a self-catering retreat and we’ve crafted a separate camp kitchen just next to the cabin which has a hand-made pizza oven, as well as a double gas burner and a beautiful bespoke wooden sink. There is also a fire bowl, essential for toasted marshmallows!

Meifod is the closest village at just a mile away, and has a shop for the basics.



There is a washing up sink at the side of the Dragon Cruck and a compost Treebog toilet 30 paces away from the Dragon Cruck with a view into the hills.  You are also treated to a separate unique shower pod with gas powered hot water, all towels provided.
