About Ty Famau Geo Lodges

Suitable For

Glamping only. Families, couples and small groups – yes. Dogs – no.


On site you can relax by the river, watch wildlife and enjoy views of the Clwydian Range. Footpaths and bike routes mean walking and cycling in to the hills is easy. Offa’s Dyke footpath is a few miles away – Ty Famau can provide a pick-up/drop-off service for walkers (from either the Crown Inn at Llandegla or the Clwyd Gate Inn at Llanbedr). Loggerheads Country Park (01824 712757), 13 miles away, has some well-marked walks. It’s also home to the Clwydian Range Centre, with information on the local area, and a café. For mountain biking, head to Coed Llandegla Forest (01978 751656), 7 miles away. The historic market town of Ruthin is 3 miles away with eateries, shops and a craft centre (01824 704774). Other facilities include a leisure centre with tourist attractions including Ruthin Gaol (01824 708281), winner of a Visit Wales 'Hidden Gem' Award. The bigger town of Llangollen is a drive of about 25 minutes away (10 miles), famed for its International Eisteddfod Music Festival which takes place in July. The town is also home to the Llangollen Railway (01978 860979) where you can step aboard a steam train and Llangollen Wharf (01978 860702) from where horse-drawn boat trips along the canal can be taken. The eastern fringes of Snowdonia National Park are a 35-minute drive away and the beaches of Colwyn Bay and Llandudno, a little further.

Food & Drink

The closest pub is a 15-minute walk away and is your hosts’ favourite; the Three Pigeons Inn (01824 703178) serving hearty meals and cask ales. In Ruthin there’s a wide choice of cafes, restaurants and places to pick up local produce. Try Café R at the Ruthin Craft Centre (01824 708099) for Welsh breakfasts, lunches and afternoon teas. There’s also Miss B’s Tearoom and Bistro (01824 790218), On The Hill (01824 707736), Manor Haus (01824 704830) or The Myddelton Grill on the Square (01824 707842). A bit further, out of town, the local, seasonal menus at Nant Y Felin (01745 890 834), and The White Horse (01824 790218) get the thumbs-up from Rebecca too. Look out for Chilly Cow Ice Cream (07968 993495) or head to their farm and their Cow Shed ice cream parlour a few miles north of Ruthin.

Most memorable weekend.

Highly recommend the lodges. We had the most wonderful stay in the lodge. A warm welcome when we arrived along with beautiful accommodation and views. Everything was kept clean and the hosts were lovely. I would definitely go back again.


Loved my stay here. The A Frame was super clean. Lovely inside and out. Such a peaceful area, was such a relaxing weekend. Maybe bring an ice box and citronella for the flies and extra blankets. Would definitely recommend and definitely hoping to return.

Beautiful domes

Domes were clean and beautifully decorated. Facilities were amazing and welcome pack was fabulous. Site is small and rural and perfect for families etc. Everything was spotless and everything you need is provided including blankets, puzzles and local guides. Lovely outside areas, a small "shop". Super warm and cosy even in February. Overall a beautiful place, such attention to detail in the decor and facilities.

Great stay

Lovely place to stay, really clean and has everything you need for your stay from warmth to little things like games for kids and some outdoor toys. Hot tub took quite a while to heat up, but it was December.

Glamping in style

We went with friends for a belated birthday celebration and were not disappointed. Facilities were very clean and everything in place for enjoying outdoor cooking (Dutch oven) and wood fired hot tub. We found it very relaxing and we would certainly go back again. Highly recommend it if you want to chill out
