Bell tent glamping with bells on a five-minute walk from the south coast beaches of the Llŷn Peninsula

The glorious Llŷn Peninsula has more than 100 miles of coastline making it the perfect place for a seaside holiday. But, like much of the UK, many of its most scenic camping spots have been commandeered by caravan parks, the likes of which Cool Campers often shy away from. Take Crugan Caravan Park, for example, where caravans fill a couple of farmer’s fields just a five-minute walk from the National Trust beach at Llanbedrog. It’s a prime position for a holiday and, behind the white gleam of vans, it’s a family-run affair on a farm. In other words: all the things we love in a campsite. Imagine, then, our delight, when we heard about the latest venture at this place: Crugan Glamping.

Consisting of just three bell tents, Crugan Glamping is situated in a tucked-away location, a short walk away from the touring park’s 50 seasonally parked-up caravans and the A-road that leads them here. The tents are pitched in a field that’s grazed by farm animals outside of camping season and protected by a thick gorse hedge, allowing you to enjoy the quieter side of this location on lovely Llŷn.

The trio of tents are all family-sized with the largest (at a whopping seven-metres) sleeping a family of up to six. As is typically the case with bell tents, the beds are made with linen supplied, there’s outdoor seating and a fire pit with tableware included. But something you won’t find on many bell tent sites are Crugan's in-tent sofas, Smart TVs and DVD players — this is glamping for people who like home comforts. And, outside, there’s a bigger powered-up surprise: an electric buggy for you to whizz around on. It’s a kind of compensation for toilets and showers that are a five-minute walk away and shared with the touring site, but it’s also a boon for the kids and for those who don’t fancy carrying luggage from car park to the car-free camping field.

The biggest bonus, though, is the beach; a sandy one, just a stroll across a field away. It’s not much further into the village of Llanbedrog either where there’s a beachside cafe, a pub, shops and an art gallery. Three miles in either direction are various places you’ll want to explore, too: Pwllheli, the capital of the peninsula, and Abersoch — the jewel in its crown. There’s coastal walking on the Welsh Coast Path and Snowdonia’s mountains are ever-present in the view, just a 30-minute drive away. All in all, it’s a great location, that’s no longer reserved just for those with caravans in tow.

Details

Facilities

The bell tents each have a kingsized bed and comfortable single mattresses and quality bed linen. They also have a sofa, electric hook-up, a Smart TV, DVD player, fridge, kettle and tableware. Outside, each has a fire pit/BBQ and outdoor seating — as well as your own electric buggy to get around the wider site. The loos, showers (eight of each) and washing-up kitchen are shared with the touring site a five-minute walk (or buggy drive) from your pitch. The site also has a children's play area.

Suitable For

Glampers, couples, families – yes. Campers with own tents, campervans, motorhomes, caravans, dogs – no (though all of these are welcome at the associated touring site).

Nearby

You only need cross the road (which can be busy in summer) and walk through one of the farm's fields to reach the National Trust beach at Llanbedrog with its colourful beach huts and the coastal footpath which leads in either direction. The seaside village of Llanbedrog is also only a mile away and home to shops, eateries and an art gallery. The sought-after village of Abersoch and the capital of the Llyn peninsula, Pwllheli, are both only three miles away. If you enjoy walking, the Wales Coast Path gives you a route to either, and beyond, with buses plying the route back. There's also a circular walk from Llanbedrog up to the Tin Man sculpture on Llanbedrog headland from where there's excellent views. Abersoch Watersports (01758 712483) offer stand-up paddleboard (SUP) and surf lessons — their sunrise SUP tour is not to be missed. Off the beach, you can visit Plas yn Rhis (01758 780219), a National Trust manor house with an ornamental garden and a lovely spot for cream tea and Plas Glyn-y-Weddw (01758 740 763), an art venue with changing exhibitions. Glasfryn Parc is an activity centre that's a 20-minute drive away, with bookable activities such as go-karting, archery, wakeboarding, and an aquapark and for yet more adventure, Snowdonia National Park is about 16 miles away with the foot of Yr Wydffa (Mount Snowdon) less than an hour's drive from site.

Food & Drink

There are several places to eat out within a mile of site including the Aqua Beach Bar (01758 740730), the Glyn y Weddw Arms, the cafe at Plas Glyn y Weddw art gallery and Tremfan Hall (01758 740 169). A little further, but still within walking distance (just over a mile away), is The Ship at Llanbedrog (01758 741111). Neighbouring Abersoch and Pwllheli have plenty of recommended places to eat out too — and there's a bus service which runs between both and the campsite into the evening making visiting them easy.

Crugan Farm – offers a romantic retreat or a family-friendly getaway without the effort; meaning loads more time to explore and enjoy, starting with a wander down for swim or sandcastle building at the beach with the famous brightly-coloured beach huts (within a five-minute walk across the field) or an adventure day rolling up your sleeves and helping us on the farm.

Guests are treated to a hamper of local produce on arrival, and a starter pack of wood for the firepit and barbecue that are on hand for outdoor cooking. Garage and supermarket supplies are 5 - 10 minutes walk away in the village of Llanbedrog (along with pubs and restaurants if you need more immediate munchies).

With only a handful of guests on site at one time there’s plenty of space to chill out here, taking in the country views while daylight lasts and as darkness falls, turn your eyes to the skies for a night of stargazing. Ah, bliss…
