An onsen is a Japanese hot spring; and the bathing facilities and traditional inns frequently situated around a hot spring.

In Japan the presence of an onsen is often indicated on signs and maps by the symbol above Traditionally, onsens were located outdoors, with particular care taken over the siting and landscaping to create a place for relaxation and quiet reflection in the natural world. There is a strict ritual to the use of an onsen and the conduct of the user, only entering the onsen after showering and being completely clean.

The Onsen Domes at fforest farm take year-round comfort and engagement with the outdoors to a new level. And a very romantic short break option any time of the year.

Everyone loves our domes, people love the solid wood floors, wood-burning stoves, bespoke furnishings and beautiful countryside views from the giant bay window. Now we have added more.

There are four Onsen Domes at fforest farm all located in the same field with beautiful countryside views.

We’re very excited about our new Onsen Domes. They have all of the best bits of our domes which are are favourite with our fforest guests, but we have added more.

We’ve created an insulated cedar and zinc clad pod connected directly to the dome with en-suite shower room & WC, together with an indoor table & seating seating area featuring power sockets & a fridge.

Outside each has a Japanese style bath-house with shower, basin and cast concrete, sunken soaking tub.

The fully equipped outdoor kitchen and dining area has been custom built from reclaimed hardwood with a combined outdoor wood-burning stove and barbeque.

From the decked area you can fully relax on our custom built outdoor sofa overlooking the beautiful Welsh countryside.

Each dome’s location is carefully planned out to ensure a feeling of solitude.
