Accommodation Description

· Kid-friendly · Barbecue

This unique, rustic shepherd's hut is located on a farm in Betws-y-Coed, Wales, and can accommodate two guests. The bedroom, located in a stand-alone hut, has an extra-long, full-size bed that folds into a sofa during the day. Cozy touches, such as a sheep-skin rug, hardwood floors, and a wood-burning stove, make this room inviting and warm despite the weather outside and provide an authentic, secluded experience. A dresser and a table with small chairs are provided for glampers' convenience.

The bathroom is found in a separate hut and has a flushing, caravan style toilet, a modern shower, and a jug and bowl for washing. The wash hut also boasts an inviting, wood-burning sauna with low and high level benches, providing the perfect place to relax and unwind after a full day of exploring Snowdonia. Linens and towels are provided.

The property puts a unique twist on a standard kitchen by providing an outdoor table with wheels that are topped with a two-ring gas burner for a warm breakfast or a cozy cup of tea. Guests can also use the fire pit to prepare their food. A cool box with fresh ice blocks serves as a refrigerator, and the water provided on-site comes directly from the property's own spring.

Outside, there are expansive fields for guests to explore, along with picturesque views of the surrounding national park and glacier-carved landscape. There are also outdoor chairs and tables where guests can enjoy the sunset over a relaxing glass of wine. Read More
