You can bring your own tent for around £200 a week or if you want to scale up the comfort, you could stay in converted barns – also known as a Crog Loft.

Having stayed in one of the Crog Lofts during the Easter break with our family, it has to be said that they are perfect for a family of four. They have beautifully styled interiors, with battered retro leather sofas and classic welsh blankets. The bathroom has a contemporary design with a walk in shower. Whilst the kitchen is just outside the front doors (undercover) and is perfect location for any summer evening activities. An ideal British summer getaway.

It must be said that it is a common misconception that ‘Gather’ is a festival. Here are NINE reasons Fforest Gather believe it isn’t that:
1) It is really intimate with only 500 people each year

2) Camping isn’t compulsory – There is fabulous flexible accommodation but you are also welcome to bring your own tent or camper

3) It lasts a week – It’s 7 nights. Call it a holiday.

4) Everyone is welcome.

5) Not a Beer tent in sight – just a century old crofter’s cottage converted into the sweetest pub

6) You wont be kept up late with loud music

7) There is loads to do – not just music

8) You can come and go – the beaches aren’t too far away

9) It doesn’t matter if it rains – there are canopies, buildings, shelters… the lot!

Sounds good doesn’t it? A perfect idea for a week of late summer fun with family and friends.
