Black Hat at Epic Retreats - Spacious and Homely

Homely and spacious, this unique accommodation is inspired by the traditional tall black hat worn by the Welsh women who halted a French invasion via Fishguard in 1797. Often referred to as the "last invasion of Britain", it is said that the invaders mistook the hundreds of women marching towards them in black hats and scarlet cloaks for British Grenadiers, and fled.

Like a tipi, a timber frame supports a canvas skin, shaped into a traditional hat. Featuring a king-sized bed within the upper floor of the hat and a domed roof for stargazing, this really is a place to relax and forget about the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Sit back and enjoy the warmth of the stove in the living area, or roll the walls right back for an extended lounge and be one with nature.

  • Large Circular Bed (sleeps 2)
