Safari Tent (1 at Slate Mountain Glamping)
The Owner Says
As you step into your tent through the door you will realise that these safari tents are slightly different! We have worked closely with the manufacturer to build a tent that will fit into our beautiful rugged landscape enabling you to see the amazing views and feel the extraordinary industrial heritage.
Our tents are designed to be suitable for family, couples or a small group of friends
The canvas roof is insulated and the walls are solid to ensure that the interior is warm and cosy. At the front of the tent there is a seating area close to the log burner, somewhere to enjoy a glass of fizz and play family games.
The sleeping area is just behind.
In the 4 person tent there is 1 x King Size Double bed and 2 x bunk beds. In the 5 person tent there is an extra single bunk over the king sized double bed. We have chosen quality mattresses and bed linen to help you enjoy a restful night’s sleep.
At the rear of the tent there is your own en-suite bathroom with electric shower, wash hand basin and lavatory.
There is a verandah at the front with outdoor furniture allows you to sit and watch the great views and dark skies. Outside there is also a built BBQ.
We have furnished the tents with Welsh blankets, cute crockery and of course bed linen, towels and tea towels. Your log burner will be set to burn with complimentary logs as you pop on the kettle to enjoy a welcoming tea or coffee.
We’re keeping things quiet and relaxing so there are no cars on the hillside – we deliver you and your luggage to the tent. So there is plenty of space to relax.
We have a great cafe on site where you can have a Welsh breakfast and locally sourced produce for lunch! We also have a welcoming pub with beer brewed just down the road and a coffee shop if you fancy a toasted sandwich or a slice of cake.
Our shop will sell you extra logs, barbecue packs and locally brewed beer as well as wine and other important things!
We ope you have an enjoyable stay with us!

About Slate Mountain Glamping
Suitable ForGlampers only. Tents and caravans – no. Dogs are permitted in some of the tents. Groups welcome by prior arrangement.
NearbyTwo of North Wales' best beaches – Black Rock Sands and Harlech beach – are only around 30 minutes away. You can actually drive onto the beach at the former, while the latter sits in sight of the iconic Harlech Castle (01766 780552). Caernarfon and Criccieth castles are also nearby, with Beaumaris castle just across the Menai Straits on Anglesey. The singular Italianate village of Portmeirion is around 20 minutes' drive away. This mish-mash of architectural styles has featured heavily on film and TV screens over the years – fans of cult 60s series The Prisoner will recognise this as the show's enigmatic setting. Coed y Brenin Forest Park (16 miles away) is one of Natural Resources Wales' premier recreation sites with its world famous mountain bike trails. Bike hire available from Beics Brenin (01341 440728).
Food & DrinkThe onsite café-restaurant does a cracking Welsh breakfast, traditional cawl, toasties, homemade cakes, as well as pizzas in the evening. Most ingredients are locally sourced, including Welsh Slate Cavern Aged Cheddar! The Quarryman's Tavern pub serves craft ale from Llandudno's Great Orme Brewery and the nearby Purple Moose Brewery in Porthmadog (brewery tours available). Blaenau Ffestiniog (about a mile downhill) boasts plenty of places to eat and drink, including community-owned pub The Pengwern (01766 762200) an atmospheric old drovers inn near the village square. Porthmadog (9 miles) poses plenty of options, including The Australia (01766 515957) for a pint and some wholesome pub grub or, if you want to push the boat out, the ever-popular Moorings Bistro (01766 513500), just outside the town, overlooks the bay at Borth-Y-Guest.
