Trelan Farm is a working beef and sheep farm nestled at the foothills of Moel Famau, part of a designated North Wales Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that’s popular with keen walkers and hikers.

It’s amongst the farm’s 150 scenic acres that you’ll discover The Wonder Wagon, a former trailer that was once a faithful part of the fleet at the local steel works.

The farm’s friendly owners are huge fans of creative recycling, so they asked a family friend – along with a sustainable interior design brand – to help them convert the trailer into a sumptuous retreat for two… somewhere guests could switch off and feel connected with the surrounding countryside.

The result is a soothing haven of natural materials, muted tones, and soft lighting that promise to relax you instantly.

Steeped in imagination and creative design, you’ll find whisky barrel planters outside, with decking created from scaffolding boards, and a gorgeous, sheltered al fresco bath with hand-made taps, and a ready supply of bubble bath!

Inside awaits a calming space that reflects your natural surroundings, with plenty of squishy seating that’s perfect for curling up with your loved one (or a good book, whichever you prefer.)

Large windows and double French doors showcase views of the farm and its animal residents – whom you’re more than welcome to meet on a friendly farm tour – yet you’ll also find linen blackout blinds to ensure generous helpings of privacy and rest.
