Tan-y-Capel Hideaway

UK Wales North Wales Gwynedd

Tan-y-Capel, Ceidio, Pwllheli, Gwynedd LL53 8 UH

En-suite bathroom, private hot tub and stunning views spells luxury living on the Llŷn Peninsula

If nature was a beauty contest, the Llŷn Peninsula might just win best all-rounder. For ‘Snowdonia’s arm’ exhibits the best of Wales’ many wonders – lush green hillsides, hidden coves and sandy beaches peppered with timeless seaside settlements, all bookended by the bluest of seas and dramatic mountain peaks. An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the peninsula’s proximity to Snowdonia National Park means visitors can be scaling the mighty mountains in the morning before enjoying a lazy afternoon on the beach, all in the same day. Needless to say, this peerless position means the views from pretty much anywhere are simply breathtaking. Case in point – the mountains and distant sea vistas from the private hot tub at this cracking new glamping getaway near Pwllheli. 

A hideaway in name and nature, Tan-y-Capel Hideaway lies on a secluded three acre spot in the tiny hamlet of Ceidio. For any couples seeking a romantic retreat in one of the country’s most stunning settings, this is the place. Comprising just a single hi-spec pod situated in a tranquil garden, glampers here are the sole guests so privacy is assured. The cosy abode features a proper double bed, with an additional futon that converts to a comfy single bed for an extra guest. It’s entirely self-contained too with an en-suite bathroom featuring a modern shower dispensing instant hot water and a proper flush toilet. In addition, a neat little kitchenette features most mod-cons plus all the kit and caboodle. But it’s outside where the accommodation really comes into its own. Beside the modern gas-powered barbecue for al fresco dining, there’s a new roto spa hot tub with views across to Garn Boduan and the distant Irish Sea. If there’s a more decadent way to do glamping than watching the sunset with a glass of bubbly while soaking in the bubbles, we’ll do our utmost to find it. Thanks to the Llŷn Peninsula’s curious micro-climate –making it one of Wales’ sunniest regions – you’ll certainly get your money’s worth out on the sun deck (though the hot tub and de rigueur fluffy bath robes are included in the price).

If you can tear yourself away from this lavish lodge, there’s an abundance of things to see and do in the vicinity. The Llŷn’s stretch of the 870-mile Wales Coast Path is amongst the most stunning and is eminently accessible from the site. Be sure to make it to picturesque Porthdinllaen beach, home to the famous Ty Coch Inn, a legendary beachside boozer that regularly features amongst the world’s best in the travel polls. A pint and a paddle on a hot summer’s day – what more could you ask for?

Watching the sunset over the sea from the hot tub

We had a wonderful weekend here. The pod was cosy and had everything we needed in a lovely peaceful and secluded spot. Our hosts were very welcoming but were careful to give us our privacy. They even helped us charge our electric car. The real highlight is the hot tub with the beautiful views. Thanks for a lovely time!

Dream hideaway!

We couldn’t fault our stay at Tan-y-Capel. Rebecca and Dave were very accommodating, while at the same time keeping out of our way so we could enjoy the pod (unless we needed them, of course). The pod itself is brilliant and has everything you could need. It’s super cosy and has some clever storage spaces. Plus, it goes without saying the hot tub is amazing! Location wise, it was one of the best spots we’ve been to in Wales for visiting the Lynn Peninsula - well located for getting to Abersoch, Portmeirion, Aberdaron and more. We loved the pub just up the road for having a drink and playing board games (much to the locals’ amusement) and the food at The Ship was very good. We would definitely return, thanks for a wonderful break!

We stayed here for one night and didn't want to leave. The views are outstanding and the location is private and relaxing. Rebecca and Dave were lovely and very helpful. They have put in a lot of effort to make their hideaway so fantastic. The little touches like tea, milk, welshcakes and prosecco make a difference. The hideaway is clean and cosy but surprisingly spacious. There is so much to see and do nearby and Rebbeca and Dave give great recommendations- especially ice cream in Abersoch from the Two Islands! We would recommend Tan-Y-Capel without hesitation and are already looking forward to returning in the future. Thanks for the perfect stay!

Peace and Quiet

We stayed for 2 nights at Tan-y- Capel and had a fantastic time. The hosts Rebecca and Dave were extremely welcoming and the "Pod" was very luxurious, (very 'Hygge") kitted out with everything you could possibly need. The attention to detail was amazing. We took our bikes and explored the Llyn Peninsula - heaven for my husband a keen cyclist. I struggled up most of the hills but the views from the top were definitely worth it . We will certainly be visiting again Liz

Amazing Pod

Extremely lovely/helpful host. The pod was immaculate & of a high standard. Everything you could wish for with lovely thoughtful extras.. Will recommend. However our 2 night stay was compromised. I booked this particular pod for complete privacy,( my main reason total privacy) sadly on this occasion it was far from private.. we couldn’t use the hottub at ease due to workmen sat in the adjacent field eating lunch in there van, if sat in the hot tub you could see them working & then you. This made me very uncomfortable.. We had to wait untill there work day finished to relax fully. Cooking breakfast / lunch on the bbq was nt relaxed & private, once again builders in & out of there van which meant they kept walking passed. We felt what could of been a fantastic stay was tarnished and wasn’t fully enjoyed.. The views are spectacular & it is excellent value for money 100% within the pod.. All the above where discussed with Rebecca and hopefully the fencing will be made higher to respect customers privacy to ensure 100% satisfaction. I would definitely return if a higher fence ran alone the side .. it was a beautiful place, the host was amazing on arrival & leaving, sadly the much needed brake for our romantic stay didn’t reach our expectation on these particular dates. I would pay and return immediately if the above was put in place.. I hope this feed back is helpful, it’s not intended to put anyone off a visit to this amazing pod. I’m very fussy & if I’m expecting something I want exactly that. I feel I need to re-book a night away again. Tan-y-Capet would be my choice again if the problems we encountered were fixed.. happy glamming to anybody who tries it

Private, peaceful and utterly luxurious. Chill out in the hot tub with a glass of bubbly!

What a place! Tan-y-Capel Hideaway surpassed all our expectations. To call this a mere pod seems a disservice – it's more like a boutique hotel room complete with lots of lovely additional extra touches (like Welsh cakes and prosecco!). There's the comfiest of double beds, en suite bathroom with proper shower and flush toilet, kitchenette and, best of all, a private state-of-the-art hot tub on the private veranda with amazing views of the surrounding hills and the sea. Dave and Rebecca were so welcoming, giving us a tour of the grounds and furnishing us with lots of local recommendations for places to visit, eat and drink. The Ship Inn at Edern (about 5 mins drive away) is a cracking spot for an evening meal with a varied menu of lovely locally caught seafood dishes. Be sure to get a cab down courtesy of Griff (Dave and Rebecca's neighbour) so you can sample their huge selection of artisan gins. The stunning Porthdinllaen beach is also a 5 mins drive away, home to TY Coch Inn right on the beach – possibly the best beer garden in Wales! We're already getting withdrawal symptoms so will definitely be booking our return soon...

Great pod, great hosts, great hot tub and great weather!

Dave and Rebecca are a lovely friendly couple who welcome you with a bottle of fizz and a smile. The location has stunning views over the Llyn peninsula. You are not far from the coast and the famous Ty Coch pub. Bring a bike with you as there are many country roads to ride around. Sitting in the hot tub at night, counting the stars with a glass of fizz to hand is a memorable experience. Danny and Morag

This place is absolutely stunning, the attention to detail with everything inside and outside the pod cannot be faulted what so ever!! Perfect for a couples getaway & a wonderful beach bar just up the road! The views for miles are breathtaking - from sat in the hot tub we were actually stunned to silence for once in our lives!! The pod is fully equipped with everything you need from fluffy towels, crockery, (great quality!) shampoos and conditioners (greatly valued by myself) fresh flowers and even prosecco and milk! What an attentive couple Sarah and Dave that own it, we plan to come back every year!!! Thankyou for having us.

Beautiful view and luxurious pod

The pod is set in a lovely position with a beautiful view. There are lots of very thoughtful extras in the pod and it is very comfortable. It is in a great location to explore the Llyn Peninsula and the hosts are very welcoming.

We stayed in the pod for 3 nights recently. The location is simply breathtaking - the pod sits in a private, elevated space overlooking the rolling countryside with views out over the sea. The pod itself is the most luxurious camping accommodation we have ever stayed in - it is extremely comfortable and well furnished with everything you need. Rebecca & Dave have thought of everything, the fridge is even stocked with milk and Prosecco on arrival! Their attention to detail is second to none, and whilst they leave you in peace to enjoy your time, they are always on hand to help whenever needed. The only minor issue for some might be (which is beyond the control of the hosts) that the elevated position of the pod can be quite windy but the seaviews are definitely worth it! This accommodation is perfect for those looking to get away from the crowds and enjoy a peaceful stay in a private, luxurious location with breathtaking views.
