About Us - Boutique Hotels and Glamping in Wales
The Epic Retreats project is a partnership between Best of Wales, Cambria Tours and George + Tomos Architects and is part funded by the Welsh Government’s Tourism Product Innovation Fund. Epic Retreats is a completely unique hotel offer that will celebrate Wales’s Year of Legends 2017 by allowing people to experience the best landscapes and experiences Wales has to offer while staying in one of eight bespoke cabins, designed specifically for the project. Fewer than 200 bookings are available, meaning that only a select few will get the opportunity to stay in one of three amazing locations within Wales' magical landscape.
Best of Wales offers 4 star and 5 star holiday accommodation throughout Wales. It is a certified agency with Visit Wales and has won numerous awards since the business was established in 2009. With their Mid and North Wales office in Cemaes and their South Wales office in Abercynon, the company is completely bilingual and represents 300 self-catering properties throughout Wales. Passionate about Wales, its heritage and language and the fact that it is a truly unique holiday destination, Best of Wales will be working closely with George + Tomos Architects, the designers and Visit Wales' Quality Assurance Department to ensure the glamping accommodation units are of the highest standard for your stay. They will also be at hand to help with any questions or requests you may have when enquiring or booking your accommodation at the unique Epic Retreats pop-up hotel.
