Red Kite Conkers
A world first: an off-the-grid escape set to revolutionise future construction
Red Kite Tree Tents in brief
Following the incredible success of the RED KITE TREE TENTS this summer, we are proud to announce a collaboration with the inventor of Conker Living, Jag Virdie, to be launched at the Glamping show this week www.conkerliving.com. Jag cut his teeth at Maclaren, Bentley and Rolls Royce so he is no stranger to premier products.
At we speak, Jag is under wraps in a secret location engineering the world’s first two Conkers for installation at Red Kite Estate in December 2018
They are fully sustainable and will provide year round precision engineering glamping at Red Kite Estate.
You will be able to stay in a Conker from December 2018 in another unique experience in the Red Kite Estate.
if you are interested in a stay with us please fill in the form below and let us know if you have any specific dates.
Each Conker is private with its own firepit, kitchen area, shower and toilet
Sleeps two per pod in comfortable Jag engineered, cosy double beds
Each is equipped with a super comfortable mattress and has a dynamic heating system - leave your sleeping bags at home!
Individually designed, both pods are completely original - with their own identities.

THINGS TO DO
Listen to the river tumbling over the mossy rocks and gliding beneath the log bridge. Watch red kites rising on the thermals above and the hares boxing in the valley below.
You can jump straight from the office into the wilderness without spending hours fighting with tent poles and guy ropes. These pods are ideal for wildlife watching – hanging in the canopy gives you a unique perspective on your private forest. And the nearest mobile signal is a ten minute walk away; this is about being fully present, opening yourself up to your surroundings. (You could even unwind with some yoga on the deck...)
CONCIERGE AND AMENITIES
You can walk straight up into the hills behind the forest: the estate lies on the edge of the remote Elenydd region of mid-Wales.
The nearest shops are about 10 minutes' drive away in Newbridge-on-Wye, where you will find a well-stocked post office convenience store, artisan butcher, and the charming local. There is a large 24 hour supermarket in Llandrindod Wells.
Location and getting there
The Red Kite Conkers are situated on our private conservation estate in Powys, near Builth Wells and Newbridge-on-Wye. You can walk straight into the green mountains of the Elenydd, right behind the estate.
Access to the Red Kite Estate is via a private track off the B4358 road at the village of Llanafan Fawr between Newbridge-on-Wye and Llanwrtyd Wells.
