Celebrate the inspirational women in your life

On the 8th March since 1910, International Women’s Day has been a time for people around the world to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

This International Women’s Day the campaign is focused on the difference individuals can make and we we want to help raise awareness  by asking you to celebrate a relative, friend, neighbour or colleague, who is inspirational to you and who goes above and beyond to make a difference.

Tell us about someone special in your life, and we’ll pick the one that we think is most deserving to win a relaxing midweek getaway for 2 in one of our domes.

Just go to our Facebook or Instagram page and nominate the person you think most deserves to win a stay at Cosy Under Canvas. Don’t forget to tell us why they should be treated to this relaxing glamping experience.

The lucky winner will receive a 2 night stay for 2 people in a beautiful Cosy dome with their very own wood fired hot tub.

Perhaps your nominee has been there for you in times of need, done something amazing in your community city or workplace, been an inspiration to you or just been a true friend – whatever the reason then let us know.

Of course there are awesome men in our lives too so if you’d rather nominate your chap then feel free. It’s all equal in our woodland!

The competition closes on Mothers’ Day, the 22nd March 2020, after which we’ll select a deserving winner.

Let the romantic in you run wild in the woods!

We love a bit of romance here at Cosy. Over the years we've set up marriage proposals, hosted engagement parties, anniversaries and a wedding.

With St Dwynwen's Day, a special day for romance in Wales, and Valentine’s Day approaching, we thought we’d inspire you with how to treat your loved one at Cosy Under Canvas...

1. Picnic by the river

Hire a canoe for two and paddle down the River Wye. Take a picnic full of tasty treats and pick a secluded spot on your very own river beach.

You could even pop in some aphrodisiac foods like watermelon, avocado, chocolate, chilli, figs & celery to really spark the romance!

2. Take a sunset walk

Watching the sun go down makes for the most romantic of evenings. Climb our personal favourite, Hay Bluff for breath taking views of the sun setting over the Brecon Beacons.

We can let you know the time of the sunset that day to make sure your timing is just right.

3. Enjoy a romantic dinner

The simple exterior of both the Felin Fach Griffin and The Stag at Titley gives way to a cosy candlelit gastropub serving tantalisingly tasty, locally sourced, great quality food.

Perfect for romance and both just a 20 minute drive from our site.

Don't want to move from your dome? Kick back on site with only eyes for each other!

Relax in a Hot Tub

4. Soak up the romance in your hot tub

Spend quality time relaxing together in your very own steamy wood-fired hot tub.

Take in a bottle of something bubbly and soak away your cares under the stars. Bliss!

5. Treat yourselves to a relaxing massage

Light the stove in your dome, cosy up on the sheepskins and enjoy a massage.

Book one of our highly recommended personal massage or reflexology therapists just for you. Ask us for details.

6. Stare at the stars

What could be more romantic than gazing at the stars together? Get cosy in blankets round your campfire, reconnect and take in the amazing skies above.

The National Parks' dark sky status means on a clear night you can see the Milky Way, meteor showers and even nebulas.

7. Read romantic literature

Explore Hay On Wye, the famous town of books. Choose your favourite and sit in contented silence or read aloud to each other for more vivid characters and tangible adventures.

If you're not sure where to start, we've found this list of read aloud suggestions from Book Riot that we're going to try for ourselves.

Read romantic literature to your loved one

Sound like a dream come true?
