Luxury, en-suite glamping on the Llŷn Peninsula with stunning views

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 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 panoramas you can enjoy from this 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 two hi-spec glamping units – a modern pod and a beautiful shepherd's hut – situated in a tranquil garden, glampers here enjoy a slice of Wales to themselves. Each cosy abode features a proper double bed, an en-suite bathroom and a neat little kitchenette featuring most mod-cons. For a particularly indulgent escape, the pod and shepherds hut also have a Roto Spa hot tub outside, with views across to Garn Boduan and the distant Irish Sea. 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 shingle terrace.

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?

Nearby

The Llŷn Peninsula is one of Wales’ most captivating coastal regions. Explore its many stunning beaches like Porth Nefyn (2 miles away) or Porthdinllaen (3 miles) home to one of the world’s best beach bars. For surfing (of the board, kite and wind variety) Porth Neigwl is excellent or you could spend a day at chic Abersoch, the sailing capital of Wales. There are several more hidden spots along the coast that are only accessible via the Wales Coast Path – just ask your hosts for the best walking or cycling routes. Further afield, Caernarfon and Criccieth are well worth a visit, not least for their castles and stunning views (the former’s overlooking Anglesey). The extraordinary Italianate village of Portmeirion (as seen on 60s cult classic TV series The Prisoner) is another essential stop. And with golf is your thing, Nefyn & District Golf Club (01758 720966) is less than 10 mins drive away.

Food & Drink

Pwllheli and its environs boasts plenty of pub and places to eat. Y Bryncynan (01758 720879) is less than 2 miles away at Morfa Nefyn. They serve real ales and wholesome pub grub from breakfast through to evening meals. The Ship Inn (01758 720559) at Edern serves exquisite dishes such as Welsh beef wellington and pan fried hake. Be sure to book ahead for Sunday lunch. The Cliffs Inn (01758 720356), also at Morfa Nefyn, is a great spot for lunch with a spacious sun terrace overlooking the sea. But for views, the pick of the pubs has to be Ty Coch Inn (01758 720498). Regularly voted one of the world’s best beach bars, the beer garden here is the golden sands of Porthdinllaen beach. Other worthy dining options include Plas Bodegroes (01758 612363) and Tremfam Hall (01758 740169) which both come highly recommended by your hosts.

Breath taking

I knew it would be wonderful, but I didn't realise how blown away I'd be! Right down to every little detail! My friend and I had the best break and I am already deciding what dates to return. Peaceful, friendly and a beautiful setting. Plenty nearby, walks, running, food, great atmosphere locally too! Can't thank you enough. We will be back
★★★★★

A real treat.

A real treat. A peaceful and serene setting, in a delightful wild flower garden. The shepherd 's hut has the luxury and all facilities one would need for a week earned break. Enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub after a long day's walk, watching the sun set and starts. Close to Morfa Nefyn and central for those waking the coastal path.

WOW.. I wish there was a 10star rating!

I cannot put into words how amazing this place is. From the owners to the decor! The shepards hut was just what we needed with everything going on it was great to escape life and get away! It was just the right size, clean and beautiful. The owners insured we had everything we needed and we loved the little extras like processco and freshly baked cookies. It was so private and peaceful :) You would be silly not to come here.. We cannot wait to return x
★★★★★

Fantastic accommodation, with everything you need!

We stayed in the hut for our staycation this week, it was a lovely place to stay, exceptionally clean, and had everything you needed and more! The hosts were very welcoming and had thought of everything, the hotub was pre warmed, Prosecco on chill, milk in the fridge and even a map provided of the local area and key places to go and visit marked on it. Highly recommended and we will definitely be visiting again in the future!

A wonderful stay

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Hideaway pod. From the moment we arrived, Rebecca and Dave made us feel very welcome. Our one year old was very excited to meet the chickens and the pet dogs Molly and Rosie. The Hideaway pod was incredibly clean and beautifully presented. We enjoyed the welcome touches such as prosecco in the fridge, cookies, tea, coffee and milk. We made great use of the hottub and BBQ after we put our son to bed. We also managed to fit our travel cot in, which was great. It's a great base to explore the surrounding areas such as Abersoch, Criccieth etc. A visit to the Ty Coch Inn is a must. Thanks again for a wonderful stay.
★★★★★

The most amazing few days away!

We recently stayed in the Shepherds Hut at Tan-Y-Capel Hideaway and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. Dave led us to the hut (offering us a wheelbarrow to ferry our belongings) and showed us to a beautifully secluded hut in what can only be described as a small wildflower meadow. Inside the hut, there were so many lovely little touches such as Prosecco, homemade cookies, robes (obviously the hot tub!) and even things such as milk and toothpaste just in case we forgot. Dave was really informative and told us all about the local area, highlighting the best places to visit and eat. He and Rebecca were such wonderful hosts (and their lovely little pooches) and we will definitely be back!

Excellent accommodation, facilities and hosts

Very welcoming hosts upon arrival who were helpful in running through the workings of everything in the Pod. They also provided a map of the local area with key shops and places highlighted which they pointed out to us. The Pod itself was perfect with a very cosy and homely feel to it. The decking area with the hot tub and BBQ is excellent - the quality of everything is fantastic and is looking out on a great view. The surrounding area adds to the experience with lots of walks, pubs and beaches. 10/10 - would definitely recommend and stay again! Thank you Tan Y Capel Hideaway!

Idyllic location, great facilities and perfect hosts

As we know the marketing doesn’t always align with reality. Fortunately for us Tan-y-Capel was as good as the hype. We were blessed with good weather which makes the difference when holidaying in the UK. The location is beautiful and the hosts were perfect. Rebecca, the hostess left some homemade cookies in the pod together with some freshly cut flowers - little things make a real difference. The pod was small but just about adequate for 2 adults and a little person. It was well equipped and spotless.
★★★★★

Fantastic break

Just returned from a lovely few days at the Hideaway Pod. The place was fantastic - exactly as was advertised. Rebecca and Dave were so personable and welcoming. The location is fantastic - brilliant for anyone who wants to visit fabulous Pen Llyn. The pod is everything one could ask for. The small church is delightful. Diolch for a great stay.

Amazing place and amazing hosts!

The tan-y-Capel hideaway pod was absolutely amazing. The hosts had thought of every last detail and made us feel so welcome. The area was stunning and the locals very friendly and helpful. Every recommendation was spot on. Griff, the taxi driver, lived nearby and made it very easy for us to get around. His brother was also lovely and took us to the local farm to see a newborn calf! We had such an amazing, relaxing time and will definitely be back soon! Thank you :)

A beautiful hideaway

First of all the photos don't do this place justice. It's absolutely beautiful! The hut was comfortable with an impressive shower.

Fantastic child free getaway

I can't say enough to do it justice. One of my all time favourite places. Stayed in the Shepherds hut which was lovely and private in your own little meadow. The little touches added to it. Like home made cookies, fresh milk in the fridge and prosecco waiting on your arrival. The owners are lovely. And really knowledgeable on the area and places to visit. We weren't disturbed at all whilst there. Definitely booking as soon as we can for our next visit.

I booked the Pod for my partners 21st and we had the best time ever - we brought our baby with us to and hosts Becca and Dave were so accommodating to us and our little one, even providing children’s books and extra blankets for us! The views are something out of a movie and the pod is so cosy and beautiful. The weather didn’t ruin our trip as just lying in the cosy bed listening to the rain was perfect, we will 100% be returning!!

This was genuinely my favourite countryside getaway stay. We stayed in th4 Shepherds Hut. It was so serene and we had a lot of privacy. We really enjoyed our brief chats with Dave and Rebecca and feel like they went above and beyond to make our stay the best it could be. I would 100% love to return to this beautiful place
★★★★★

Beautiful setting, excellent facilities and top hosts

We stayed at the Shepard's Hut for three nights - the Hut is in a beautiful location overlooking the local town and cost, and comes with all the facilities you could want for a short stay, we really enjoyed using the BBQ and the Hot Tub to relax after a day exploring the lovely local area. Rebecca and Dave couldn't have been more welcoming - providing everything you could have needed. A visit to the Ty Coch Inn is a must, whilst its also less than an hours drive to Snowdonia. We would recommend to all our friends and family.
★★★★★

Simply Perfect

We recently stayed in the Shepherds Hut for a 3 night break and everything was well above our expectations. From the easy booking, great directions, wonderful welcome and the Hut itself everything was just perfect. We were able to tour the peninsula and manage a few walks during our stay and the relaxing evenings in the hot tub just capped off great days. The Hut is fully equipped with everything that you need and we had a great few nights sleep on the comfortable bed. We will return.
★★★★★

Secluded luxury, 1st class

From arrival to departure our stay here wanted for nothing. With a welcome pack of chilled Prosecco, homemade cookies and a hot tub ready to soak away your journey, this hideaway has far reaching coastal views and mountain range scenery to transfix and wonder at. Local attractions are aplenty and deli in Abersoch is a must for your hot tub nibbles. Wholeheartedly recommend this place, excellent and friendly hosts, with a taxi service who knows the area like the back of his hand.

★★★★★

Most amazing, luxurious off grid experience

The Shepherds Hut is absolutely beautiful - all the elements you need for your home-from-home! Perfect way to get away from it all, surrounded by spectacular scenery and huge doses for fresh air. We walked, soaked in the hot tub, drank coffee in the sun and caught up on some much needed sleep. Left feeling recharged and looking forward to exploring more of this amazing part of Wales. The owners are lovely and have created a very special place. Can’t wait to return!

Fantastic Stay!

We had a lovely weekend in the cosy shepherd's hut which has everything you need for the perfect staycation. Sited in its own paddock, with views across the fields to the sea, it was lovely to sit out and watch the sun set. It's within easy reach of some wonderful beaches on the north coast - we took our bikes and cycled to Porth Oer which is beautiful! Rebecca and Dave made us feel very welcome. Would definitely recommend.

So cosy and clean!

Myself and my sister had 4 nights in the Shepherds Hut. It was absolutely spotless with lots of thoughtful extras. The bed pulling down was very cleverly designed and meant there was actually a surprising amount of space. A very short walk to the car but the hut was super private and tucked away in our own little field. Rebecca and Dave are the perfect hosts - thank you!

Bliss - Perfect break away!

From the minute we arrived we felt so welcome by Rebecca and Dave, and instantly at home in the hideaway pod. The separate garden area as you walk in allows you to have your own privacy and seating area outside. The views from the decking area are so picturesque, although we didn't have the best weather, the surroundings made up for it. The hot-tub is great too and easy to use, we enjoyed 2 nights in this even when it was cold outside! There was everything we needed for a couple of nights away, the pod is fully equipped with pretty much everything you can think of including hot water bottles / blankets if you're cold! Both Rebecca and Dave were so friendly, and recommended a few places we may like to visit during our stay. We booked The Ship Inn for our second night (recommended by Dave) and the food was beautiful! We also enjoyed seeing the dogs each morning in field across, as well as Daisy the pig! We are already talking about our next visit, and have already recommended to friends and family! Thanks again it was the perfect break.

They touched all bases by having everything you could possibly need, from corkscrews, to wine glasses, maps of the area to cooking utensils.

This hideaway pod was amazing! When we arrived the hosts Dave and Rebecca had birthday balloons and banners in the hut and outside as a nice little touch for my boyfriends birthday. The pod itself was immaculate, and so cosy! The views were incredible and Dave provided us with a map and discussed all the different areas and pubs local incase we went out in the day. The hot tub is a lovely touch even in all weather conditions! I have already recommended this place to family and friends and would happily return. Credits to Dave and Rebecca for an amazing hideaway.

Cosy, Secluded hut in an amazing location

We stayed in the shepherds hut and had a great weekend. The finish of the hut itself is fantastic and all the little touches made it feel very comfortable and premium. The views and grounds of the hut are beautiful and it’s in a private location. Dave was a friendly an accommodating host. The Lyn peninsula is also an amazing place to visit and the coastal walks and mountain views are spectacular. I would definitely recommend Tan-Y-Capel hideaway and will be tempted to come back again and stay longer.

Amazing place to stay

Arrived on the Friday to a very warm welcome and a tour around to show us everything, it was mine and my girlfriends anniversary which I mentioned and they got us balloons and banners in the room which I thought was a really nice touch, the pod was immaculate and had the most comfiest bed I have ever slept in.

Wonderful stay, lovely memories made!

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Tan-y-Capel Hideaway, with our 1 year old daughter. We had a wonderful time and will take away some lovely family memories from this holiday! Dave and Rebecca were very welcoming. We were able to wander across their fields where we met Daisy the pig, their two dogs, and their 10 chickens who provided us fresh eggs for breakfast every morning. The hideaway itself was perfect! It was clean, comfy, and has everything you need for a short stay.From the balcony you can see the ocean. The BBQ is a lovely addition to the pod, and we used it daily to cook breakfast and dinner. The highlight for me, of course, was the private hot tub with wonderful views of the rolling hills. Rebecca and Dave also provide dressing gowns, slippers, hot water bottles, and soft fleece blankets to make your stay even more luxurious! The location of the hideaway is great. We day tripped to Porthdinllaen beach and had a drink at the Ty Coch Inn. We even saw seals from the coastal path! We also visited the nearby Rabbit Farm in Criccieth where we saw rabbits, pigmy goats, alpacas, donkeys, ponies, and pigs. Our daughter loved it! We can't recommend this place highly enough, and will definitely be back for another stay in the Hideaway soon!

Perfect stay!

Had a lovely few days staying at the Tan-Y-Capel hideaway. The hut that we stayed in was just perfect and everything you could possibly need was there and more! It was situated in a flower meadow and with a lovely view of the sea and mountains. The hosts Rebecca and Andrew were very welcoming and friendly and made the stay even more enjoyable and relaxing. Griff who lives in a neighbouring house kindly offered his taxi service to help us get around if we wanted to have a drink who was also very friendly. Overall such a lovely place with great sites to see extremely close by. Would recommend this stay to anyone looking for a relaxing picturesque getaway.

Perfect hideaway

Well this little hideaway was the perfect tonic in the current climate. I was apprehensive about still visiting as I had been isolating at home since 14th March. I contacted Rebecca before arrival and she assured me all Covid measures where in place therefore I was very much looking forward to escaping my home for a few days. On arrival she pointed everything out rather than coming in pod with us and again assured us everything was sanitised after each guest. The little extra touches is what make this place special. They had left us tea/coffee/milk and even welsh cakes. In the fridge was Prossecco which we enjoyed in hot tub later that day. They also provided robes/slippers/fleeces if cold in evening and even hot water bottles which thankfully we did not require. All bedding and towels are from M&S lovely and fluffy, bed very comfortable. Lovely toiletries and even sun screen/insect spray and if you forgot toothbrush/paste that was also provided. We started using pods 5 years ago and each year have gone a step up, this one with hot tub and BBQ was our best yet. At present they have the one pod on site so totally isolated however they are adding a Shepherd Hut which is in next field that looks lovely too. Due to Covid-19 we did not visit all the places we had planned we just chilled at the pod most of the weekend and were thoroughly relaxed, which means we will definitely visit again in future to do all the things we missed. On site they have chickens and a pig called Daisy who we went to visit each day. If you do venture out there is a pub not far away and I believe their neighbour is a taxi driver whose number they provided if we wanted to have a few drinks he would have brought us back (nice touch). Lastly I just want to add Rebecca and Dave were perfect hosts and got the feeling they would assist in anything we required. Like I said thankfully we have going for years so took all we needed but they were so accommodating and made us feel very welcome. Just Perfect!

Beautiful and relaxing

Firstly, the hosts were wonderful folks. The place was ideally situated for our needs, away from the noise and glare of a busy city life. The hideaway was immaculate in terms of cleanliness and the facilities on offer. We would definitely want to visit again.

Beautiful Autumnal Break

My partner and I stayed at Tan-Y-Capel for 3 nights at the end of October. Dave and Rebecca were very welcoming and friendly and suggested some good places to visit for food and sightseeing during our stay. The pod is very warm and cosy with everything that you could need for a short break, including robes and slippers. The absolute star of Tan-Y-Capel is the private hot tub on the outside deck. It was wonderful to spend the evening watching the stars with a glass of wine from the tub. We would absolutely go back and will recommend to lots of people.

We had an absolutely fantastic weekend away here! Rebecca and Dave were very welcoming and accommodating! There was a bottle of Prosecco, some milk and welsh cakes waiting for us when we arrived, which was a lovely touch.

The dressing gowns and slippers were nice for when we got out of the hot tub at night, plus the fleeces/hot water bottles! The hot tub was a great addition and the views were absolutely amazing! The pub was a half an hour walk away but their neighbour is a taxi driver so always there if needed. If you are looking for a nice relaxing break then this is definitely the place. We will definitely be returning! Thank you for having us!

Friendly, warm, lovely touches

We stayed at Tan-y-Capel a few weekend ago after I bought the trip for my partner as a birthday present. We totally enjoyed our relaxing time here from beginning to end. From the warm welcome from the hosts Redecca & Dave until the second we left we felt relaxed & pampered. Lovely little touches like welsh cakes & prosecco on arrival and robes & hot water bottles after using the hot tub went a long way. The pod is an amazingly cosy home from home. The hot tub is a real bonus - to see the amazing sunset on evening 2 while sipping a glass of something cold in the hot tub was fantastic. We walked to The Ship, the local pub, on the first night where the food was good and the welcome warm. The friendly neighbour brought us home in his taxi. Perfect. A trip to Abersoch, about a 25 minute drive, was well worth it. Beautiful beaches. Meeting the animals on site is a must too. The 6 sheep are crazy but friendly and we loved meeting Daisy the resident pig! All in all a great time - we’d really recommend it

Awesome ecopod

We have a fantastic stay in this brand new little ecopod. It was really cosy and perfect for a romantic weekend away. The hot tub is definitely a highlight and the interior is charming and has everything you need for a short break. Rebecca and Dave were lovely and left a few little gifts to make our stay special.

Beautiful Scenery

Me and my partner stayed here the last weekend of the holidays and it was beautiful, waking up to the amazing scenery in the morning an watching the sunset at night was lovely, quiet at night, the pod was really warm and cosy. Dave and Rebecca were also really friendly and welcoming, would deffo recommend and plan on going back soon x

Lovely Holiday

Myself and my husband had a wee break to Tan-y-Capel and loved it. The pod was very comfy and well equipped and also a lovely welcome basket was provided on our arrival with wine, milk, teas and coffees. Our host were very friendly, welcoming and on hand if we needed anything, otherwise we did not see them. This oasis is a mile or two from any shop or pub, handily there is a taxi business next door, but the jacuzzi hot tub was lovely treat after walking there and back.

Superb

We throughly enjoyed our stay at Tan-y-Capel Hideaway. We were welcomed warmly and were extremely impressed with how lovely, peaceful and well-considered the pod was. The added extras made the experience memorable and will certainly be back in the near future.
★★★★★

Perfect

We are just back from a two night stay at the hideaway. The pod was spotlessly clean with everything needed for a fantastic, relaxing retreat. We were lucky enough to get brilliant weather so during our time we managed to visit Abersoch beach, Aberdaron and also walk down to the famous Ty Coch Inn, which was a fab walk with a hidden treasure at the end of it. We enjoyed using the bbq and hot tub one night and walking to The Ship Inn for a nice meal and drinks on the other night. As mentioned in many of the previous reviews, Dave and Rebecca were lovely and very helpful with lots of information about what to see and do in the surrounding area. The sun sets and location are simply breath taking and we could not of asked for a better two days away, to unwind. Thank you so much. Laura & Matt

2nd time here and still just as excellent!

This was our 2nd time staying at Tan-y-Capel, the 1st being in March, and it was still just as brilliant. We stayed for longer this time around and had a great time. The weather being much nicer this time around meant, evenings were spent in the hot tub with the BBQ on the go and watching the amazing sunsets. It truly is a hideaway, with the outdoor space feeling secluded allowing you to just enjoy the scenery. Having said that the hosts are fantastic and are always on hand with any questions and queries, we were given fresh towels half way through out stay and when the gas ran out on the BBQ they were quick to replace it. I can't recommend this place enough, its close to places like Ty Coch, Abersoch, Aberadon, we even travelled to climb Snowdon one day and came back to the tranquil of the hideaway to relax. We are already talking of planning another trip to stay here!

Tranquil, comfortable and relaxing. If only the weather had been kinder!

Everything was exactly as described. Little extras like the Welsh Cakes and Prosecco were such a lovely touch. If only Dave and Rebecca had had the power to control the weather! The pod had been so well thought out and its location truly is idyllic. This was my first visit to Wales and I hope it will not be the last.

Perfect from start to finish

From the moment we arrived till the minute we left was wonderful. The hosts Rebecca and Dave were fantastic - every bit of detail described in what attracted us to this place met our expectations of not more. The pod was spotlessly clean, we were provided with clean towels, bath robes and slippers. The extra touches were lovely too, hot water bottles and fleece blankets were provided along with a cold bottle of prosecco which was fantastic and thoroughly enjoyed for my partners birthday under a starry sky in the hot tub- bliss! The pod is located on the hosts property but with plenty of privacy it didn't feel like you were on someone's property. We also had a wall round the property who have lots of land and were greeted by the family pig, this was a highlight as so friendly and rolled over to rub her belly...we couldn't fault this place, the location is 11mins away from pwllheli town, we drove to Abersoch which was a 25min drive which had a superb beach. On our first eve we ate at a pub called Tu Hwnt I'r Afon - superb home cooked food with generous portions and friendly staff. On our second evening we had a bbq at the pod which is included. We can not fault this place and cant wait for our next visit. If you are looking for pure relaxation and tranquility Tan Y Capel hideaway is the place to go. Thank you Rebecca and Dave we enjoyed every second of being your guests for the weekend we loved it.

Just glorious

We stayed at Tan-y-Capel hideaway for just under a week in the Summer half-term. It was SUCH a relaxing experience. Every night we sat in the hot tub - come sun or rain - it was wonderful. It was surprisingly large space and met all our needs. We brought our 7 year old boy with us and he had a great time - collecting eggs from the chickens and playing football in the lovely field next to us. Rachel looked after us and was so easy going. I even left some personal items behind and she kindly posted these on to me - what a lovely lady! We all had such a wonderful time. The Llyn peninsular is just beautiful! We recommend Tan-y-Capel hideaway 110%, and will be finding excuses to come back...THANK YOU!

Fantasic experience

This pod is great, it's bigger than I was expecting. The Hosts were amazing, warm, welcoming and left us to our own devises after ensuring we had all the info we needed. The little touches they have added makes you feel at home and the views are stunning. We walked to the local pubs and near by is a shop which sells fresh meat and wine (although check the opening times)
★★★★★

Perfect little “Hideaway”

We absolutely loved our stay at the Hideaway. We booked 3 nights to celebrate my husbands 40th birthday and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect stay. The pod is cosy and has everything you need, including robes and toiletries. The bed is very comfy and the hot tub is a great addition, a perfect place to watch the sunsets! The location is peaceful with lovely views and wildlife around to enjoy. Rebecca and Dave are so welcoming and even set up a birthday sign, balloons and Prosecco for our arrival! Thank you for a wonderful stay, we can’t wait to visit again.

Relaxing and peaceful

Had two nights in the pod very comfortable and the hot tub was very relaxing hope to go back very soon. thanks to Dave and Rebecca for settling us in.

Gorgeous hideaway with amazing scenery nestled in a beautiful part of West Wales.

I took my teenage daughter and her friend for a short break here and I could not fault it. The pod is luxurious as well as being warm and cosy and Rebecca and Dave have thought of everything! From the complimentary bottle of Prosecco and Yorkshire tea bags to the Molton Brown soap. The towels were fluffy and the bed super comfy. I cannot fault it. The pod sits on a secluded deck with table, chairs and a barbeque. However, the highlight is the hot tub! It sits on the deck with amazing views over the countryside and is the best way to relax. Although, I didn't get much of a look in, but it kept my daughter and her friend amused for hours. They stayed in even in the hail and rain! Rebecca and Dave are lovely hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them. They were not at all intrusive, but were there if you needed them. We all had a lovely time and would definitely go back.

Beautiful secluded place with amazing scenery!

I have nothing but good things to say about this wonderful holiday pod! The place was clean, comfortable and had everything you could possibly need and more the dressing gowns, toiletries and Prosecco was a wonderful bonus! Even with the weather the hot tub was a lovely addition to a long day and the views are just amazing. The hosts were friendly and Dave made sure we had everything we needed. We loved it so much that we are already planning our next stay!

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!

Heaven!

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

Everything!!

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.

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.

Luxury

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.
