Adults-only glamping in beautifully handcrafted shepherd huts with lake and mountain views on the Llŷn Peninsula

The thing that stands out most about Brook Cottage Shepherd Huts is the view. Or perhaps it’s the artistry of the huts themselves. Or maybe it’s the location on Wales’ Llŷn Peninsula, or the locally-made artisan soap in the en suite bathroom. Truth is, it’s hard to pick a favourite element when a place to stay has been as carefully curated as this. The view, the loo, the location and everything else combine to make this an utterly charming place for grown-up glamping in the far northwest of Wales.

There are five handcrafted huts here at Brook Cottage on the banks of a small lake, each with a view of the Yr Eifl mountains. And despite the lofty outlook, you are only three miles away from seaside Pwllheli. That’s the thing about the Llŷn Peninsula: you’re never too far from anywhere you want to visit. And Brook Cottage is just about perfectly placed if you want to see it all. It’s midway between the north and south coasts and almost equidistant between Yr Wyddfa (Mount Snowdon) and the furthest fingers of this peninsula, which is known as Snowdon’s Arm.

Handbuilt by owners Jonathan and Mark, the huts are self-contained, stylish and unique. Each has its own colour palette: all muted, dusky, understated tones, warmed by the natural hues of hessian and wood. There’s thoughtful lighting and a log-burning stove too — which they’ll light before you arrive. There are three styles of hut here: shepherd, poachers and gypsy huts with the main difference in size and resulting price. The biggest is the shepherd and the smallest the gypsy hut, but whichever you choose, each is fully self-contained with a double bed, a well-equipped kitchenette and its own en-suite shower room (it’s here you’ll feel the size difference the most).

Outside you can cook over your fire while watching the sun go down behind distant mountains and see the stars, as they come out, reflected in the little lake. But, tempting as it is, don’t just put your feet up and while away all your hours here. To do that would be to miss the most elemental thing of all — the ground you’re standing on, Llŷn itself. It’s a microcosm of everything we love about Wales, full of cultural heritage, from its fantastic beaches to the nearby mighty mountains.

Details

Facilities

The huts each have an en-suite shower room, a double bed, a kitchenette with a Belfast sink, two-ring hob, oven, fridge-freezer, toaster and kettle, tables and chairs (both inside and out) and a wood-burning stove. Bedding and towels are supplied. Outside there's a fire pit/barbecue for each hut and a starter pack of logs is included — with more available to buy on site.

Adult glampers, small dogs (by arrangement) – yes. Campers, campervans, caravans, kids – no.

Nearby

There are walks on footpaths from the site out into the surrounding countryside or all the way to the seaside town of Pwllheli and the closest beaches, three miles south of the site (alternatively it's a short drive or bus ride). From this location on the Llŷn Peninsula, you are equidistant from its furthest reaches in Aberdaron and from Beddgelert in the heart of Snowdonia National Park (both 30 minutes away) so it's a great base from which to explore both. The peninsula has beautiful beaches and great coastal walking on the Welsh Coast Path which skirts not just the whole of the peninsula but all of Wales. You can visit Nant Gwrtheyrn (01758 750 334) the Welsh Language Centre, nine miles away or take a boat trip to Bardsey Island, a place of pilgrimage and a seabird hotspot, from the fishing village of Aberdaron, 20 miles away.

Food & Drink

Pwllheli is the place to head to for good meat and fresh fish as it has both independent butchers and supermarkets. For eating out in the town, family-run gastro pub Whitehall (01758 614091) is a recommended option. Out of town, try the community-centred Y Madryn in Chwilog, three miles away, or for traditional Welsh food in a country house, head for Tremfan Hall (01758 740169), seven miles away.

The Owner Says

Located on the glorious Llŷn Peninsula near the border of Snowdonia National Park in North Wales, Brook Cottage Shepherd Huts offers a quiet rural retreat in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with uninterrupted far-reaching views to Yr Eifl (The Rivals) mountains.
Nestled within a wildflower meadow overlooking a private lake, each of our five handcrafted traditional huts offers all the luxury of a 5-star experience, whilst at the same time allowing you to really switch off, relax and connect with nature.

Getting There

From the A487 at Tremadog, take the exit towards Criccieth (A498). After almost half a mile, at the next roundabout, take the second exit onto the A497. Follow this for seven miles until you can turn right onto the B4354. After three-and-a-half miles you reach a T-junction in Y-Ffor, where you need to turn left on to the A499 towards Pwllheli. After another mile, turn right (it is signposted for Brook Cottage Shepherds Huts). Go past the caravan park and, soon after, you will reach another signpost for Brook Cottage Shepherds Huts on the right. Pwllheli Train Station is three miles from site and there are buses from town to the end of the lane (the Bryn Beryl Hospital stop) about half a mile from site.
