Perfect for couples and families in need of fresh air, starry skies, and a beautiful rural backdrop, Snowdonia Glamping Holidays is nestled in the hills above Betws-y-Coed for a picture-perfect break.

The friendly family owners know exactly how to make their guests feel welcome – they built their first shepherd’s huts long before “glamping” became a holiday must! – so you’ll find each retreat is rich in cosy attention to detail.

What does this mean? Well, you can expect a snuggly night’s sleep in beds dressed with luxury linen and toasty Welsh blankets, delicious meals cooked out in the open air, and wood-burning stoves to give your evenings a warm, golden glow.

You can also expect to breathe out, relax, and reconnect with your favourite people… since there won’t be a TV or a Wi-Fi signal in sight!

The Shepherd’s Huts come as a pair, and are perfect for a romantic couple, with a ‘living’ hut that features a downy double bed and a Welsh mountain sheepskin rug. Meanwhile, the ‘wash’ hut is home to a toilet and shower, with plenty of fluffy towels to wrap yourselves up in…

…oh, and an indulgent wood-burning sauna that’s the perfect tonic after a long day of exploring Snowdonia National Park!

Bringing the family? Hire an additional bell tent for the shepherd’s huts, or book your stay in the Glamping Barn, cleverly divided into two adjacent units named Owl and Star. Each unit boasts a comfy living and dining area with a huge central wood-burning stove, as well as underfloor heating to keep you snug in all weathers.

More information

You’ll also get to freshen up in a gleaming, boutique-hotel-style bathroom, and curl up in a superking bed – or ‘secret’ hidden bunk beds! – at the end of another incredible day of outdoor adventures.

Whichever retreat you choose, you’ll have a scenic, sheltered al fresco kitchen with a barbecue and a gas burner, and plenty of open space to sit back and watch the natural world go by.

After reading and playing games, light the firepit and let the bright, twinkling stars take over as your evening’s entertainment… or keep an eye out for the resident barn owl, swooping over the meadowland.

By day, you can let loose in the outdoor adventure capital of Europe – as North Wales is justly known. As if the soaring mountains and tumbling waterfalls of Snowdonia National Park weren’t enough, you can whizz along the world’s fastest zipwire, surf at the UK’s only inland surf lagoon, or test your nerves on a below-ground assault course!

What the guests of Snowdonia Glamping Holidays say

“Absolutely loved our stay in the huts. Everything has been thought about to make for a relaxing, comfortable experience. Starry evenings with a campfire, cooking in the kitchen under the trees, falling asleep listening to the stream… sheer bliss! The sauna is a fabulous treat, too! We appreciated all the little touches and the peace and quiet. Can’t recommend highly enough! ”

“We had a fantastic stay with our two boys. The barn is beautifully decorated and absolutely everything has been thought of. Our boys loved the hidden bunk beds! Hazel and Richard are wonderful hosts and went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed. Highly recommend!”

“A wonderful 4 night stay as a couple, in Owl barn, as a base to climb Yr Wyddfa/Snowdon & explore the area. Location, comfort, facilities, views, hosts all impeccable. Highly recommended. Hazel’s hospitality, warmth, kindness and advice helped to make this trip. We can’t wait to visit again!”
