Graig Escapes couldn’t be more dreamily located; in the lush, peaceful Vale of Clwyd – part of a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – where time slows and life feels altogether lovelier. And while you’ll have easy access to the bustling local towns, you’d be hard-pressed to find evidence.

Completely surrounded by the diverse, extensive nature and wildlife that occupy this glorious part of the world, you’ll have an opportunity to make friends with the resident alpacas, get lost in conversation… or open that book you never seem to find time for at home.

Better still, the bespoke accommodation you’ll find here is styled for comfort and furnished with luxury in mind – which, after all, is no more than you deserve!

Sigrid and Frida are two spectacular Scandinavian A-frame hideaways, crafted from renewable wood that blends effortlessly into the beautiful rural landscape. The ground floor is home to a warming wood fire, light oak flooring underneath butter-soft rugs and woollen blankets, and a well-equipped kitchen.

Each sleeping up to four guests, there’s a master double bedroom and shower room downstairs too, while those with a head for heights get to sleep on the first-floor… where the morning views are particularly glorious.

Enjoy a bubble-soak in your al fresco bath on the decking (perhaps accompanied by a glass of bubbles!) or simply relax with a cuppa and savour those expansive, wide-open country views.

Looking for something a little more romantic… and rustic? Perfect for a cosy couple, Loki Hut is a lovingly hand-crafted shepherd’s hut with carefully-curated décor and breathable charm.
