Immersed in the picture-perfect charms of rural Wales, Porth Eryri is Welsh for “Gateway to Snowdonia”, because that’s exactly what this exquisite glamping site happens to be.

A mere 10-minute drive from Betws-y-Coed, an enchanting village that’s also known as the Gateway to Snowdonia, you’ll be completely immersed in captivating, soul-stirring views of soaring mountains and wildlife-steeped woodland.

Welcoming owners and life-long locals Gethin and Teleri have worked long and hard to realise their dream of creating Porth Eryri Glamping – which is privately nestled on their 50-acre working farm – in a genuine labour of love.

Each luxurious forest cabin was expertly hand-crafted in Wales, with soothing soft-toned décor and distinctive finishing touches that evoke a warm sense of home. Each individually-styled cabin also comes complete with its very own stargazing hot tub… a real treat at the end of a full day exploring the Great Outdoors!

Named after the mountain ranges that surround the farm, Y Foel Las is a Scandi-style A-frame cabin that’s ideal for a couple, while family-friendly Tryfan and Moel Siabod each sleep up to six guests.

Boasting clean-lined interiors and a bespoke spiral staircase, Y Foel Las features a downy kingsize bed on the mezzanine, with a sleek, fully-equipped kitchen downstairs – though there’s also a pizza oven and barbecue waiting outside for lazy summer evenings on the decking.

Back inside, the log-burner, cosy sofa, and Smart TV are ideal accompaniments to snuggly nights in, and there’s a walk-in rainfall shower for invigorating morning freshen-ups.

More information

Tryfan comes complete with a double bedroom, a bunk room, and a kingsize ‘hayloft’ bedroom accessed by a ladder (be warned: adventurous kids might want to claim this one for themselves!) The sociable open-plan living area leads straight out to your furnished al fresco space, where you’ll find a combination log-burner, barbecue and pizza oven.

Moel Siabod also boasts a convenient combination of kingsize, double, and bunk beds, all on the upper level, with the same facilities and furnished outdoor space as Tryfan – including the aforementioned wood-fired hot tub.

If you’ve packed your hiking boots (something Gethin and Teleri heartily recommend!) you could tackle Yr Wyddfa – otherwise known as the iconic Snowdon – itself. With Porth Eryri just 30 minutes away from the access car park, there’s really no excuse. All four of the famous Zip World sites are close by too, offering a wide range of exhilarating adventures for kids (both big and little!)

Don’t worry if this feels a little daunting however, as there are plenty more mountains to choose from… not to mention some truly beautiful lakes, rivers, and waterfalls to explore. Again, for those in a thrill-seeking mood, the National Whitewater Centre is close by and on hand.

Yet you’re also close to charming, picture-perfect villages and some of Britain’s loveliest beaches, with a short drive leading to the popular resorts of Barmouth, Llandudno and Colwyn Bay (to name just a few).

With such a warm Welsh welcome, and endless opportunity to immerse yourselves in fresh-air adventure, wildlife, history, and family fun right from the doorstep, you could find you’re booking your return visit to Porth Eryri Glamping before you’ve even arrived home!

What the guests of Porth Eryri Glamping say

“Beautiful cabin in a very peaceful area. Loved the cosy log burner and open windows. Beautiful stars and amazing sunsets! We will be back!”

“Thanks Gethin & Teleri for such a relaxing stay in stunning surroundings. The beds are clouds! Great fun preparing and heating the hot tub & pizza oven, results of the homemade pizzas were even better than expected! And the hot tub under the starry skies was glorious. Thanks for a warm welcome & thoughtful gifts (coffee was superb!).”

“We’ve had the most amazing stay in Moel Siabod – feel so relaxed! The views are beautiful with the frosty mornings, the hot tub was fantastic after walking most days and the log burner made the whole place so cosy and warm. It made my birthday one to remember. We will definitely be booking again very soon as we don’t want to go home!”
