The Owner Says
Our barns take glamping to a whole new level! Big central woodburning stoves (as well as underfloor heating) ensure you'll be cosy and warm all year round, luxury bathrooms that you'd be happy to find in a boutique hotel and enormously comfortable super king-sized beds and hidden away bunk beds that the kids will love. And the camping part? The kitchen is outdoors - sheltered and under cover - just in case it rains! Outside, the well-equipped kitchen has a gas hob and BBQ as well as a firepit so you won't be short of cooking options. There's a picnic bench and giant bean bags for sitting out, star-gazing and just enjoying the view and the kitchen's under a glass roof so, even if it does rain, which happens here occasionally, you can still sit out and enjoy it all - that's glamping for you!
Naturally there's a BBQ but there's also a gas hob and of course there's a seating area outside so you can enjoy the lovely views, the sounds of nature and the stunning starry nights that we're so lucky to enjoy. Oh – and last - but not least – you'll be unplugged from the outside world. There's no mobile signal or wifi here. And, although it's comfortable and modern, there are no gadgets – no TV, games consoles or even radio! There are books and board games for wet weather days, binoculars for wildlife watching and maps for helping you to plan your next adventure.
About Snowdonia Glamping Holidays
Suitable ForCouples, families and an additional tent for older kids (by prior arrangement) – yes. Dogs – no.
With Snowdonia National Park's forests, lakes and mountains on your doorstep, there's plenty of walking, cycling and horse riding to be done. This is also proper mountain biking country, so if two-wheels take your fancy cycle down to the Machno Trail or the Marin Trail a little further afield. To up the adrenaline levels a notch, you can also bullet down the longest zip wire in Europe at speeds of 100mph at the now famous Zip World (01248 601444), now host to Bounce Below(giant underground trampolines) the Zip World Cavern experience (yes – underground zip wires!) – not for those of a nervous disposition! Another cool new place making waves in the region is inland surf lagoon Surf Snowdonia (01492 353123) – the first of its kind in the world! No trip to the region would be complete without a visit to that most famous of photo ops, the Cantilever Stone. Conwy Castle is just 17 miles from the site and boasts spectacular views over the Conwy Estuary, with the dramatic Snowdonia mountainscape as its backdrop. The outdoorsy village of Betws-y-Coed and the historic Conwy valley market town of Llanrwst have plenty of places to eat, drink and historic sites to visit. Further north, the seaside resort of Llandudno has buckets-full of red-brick Edwardian charm, plus Wales' longest pier and a passenger cable car that enjoys unparalleled views of Anglesey and Puffin Island.
Food & Drink
Hazel provides a choice of breakfast packs (continental £18 or cooked £20) which will be at the huts on your arrival with enough food for 2 days hearty breakfast and then some. This part of the world is bursting with fantastic local produce and Hazel is happy to put together a hamper for glampers (enquire within) including Welsh mountain lamb and black beef. For great traditional Welsh fayre in an welcoming pub setting, the beautifully refurbished White Horse (01690 710721) in Capel Garmon is worth a visit. The Bryn Tyrch Inn (01690 720223) and the Ty Gwyn Inn (01690 710383) are both great local places to eat which celebrate the best of Welsh produce. For something a bit different try the very popular Olif (01690 733942), a new Welsh tapas bar in Betws Y Coed.
