Over-the-Moon Luxury Shepherds Hut

1 unit · Glamping5 acres · Ruthin, Wales
'Over the Moon’/'Dros y Lleuad' luxury Shepherds Hut is nestled in our enclosed orchard on our small holding. One of the things people love about staying here is the amazing views - including watching the moon rise over the mountains from the king-sized cabin bed. The developing Clwydian dark sky region means there are great views of the night sky. Tucked away in Maes Heddwch (Peaceful field) at the southern end of the Vale of Clwyd this is a great base to discover this lesser known corner of North Wales. We have done a lot of work since Google Maps took their pictures! Including planting tress and hedgerows. It is a lovely spot for a retreat from the hustle and bustle, sought out by walkers, cyclists, bird watchers, red squirrel seekers, foragers, neolithic stone hunters, artists, writers, historians and others. We are more than happy to share what we have discovered about the area before or during your visit.

Shepherd's huts near Chester with swimming guide

Overview

Tucked in the elbow of the River Dee at the border of England and Wales, Chester is all about family fun and outdoor adventures. Once you’ve explored the city’s Roman walls, Tudor-style townhouses, and ancient amphitheater, plan a day trip to Cheshire Zoo, one of the UK’s most famous wildlife attractions, or take to the water to boat, kayak, or stand-up paddleboard along the River Dee. Campers have plenty of options, from holiday parks and caravan parks with electric hookups and full amenities to tranquil riverside campgrounds, country lodges, or rural Hipcamps set amid rolling farmlands.

Where to go

Clwydian Range And Dee Valley AONB

Grassy peaks and heather-blanketed uplands lie over the border in North Wales, just a 40-minute drive from Chester. Bring your tent or drive your campervan into the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to hike and mountain bike across wild moorlands, discover Iron-Age hillforts and historic villages, and kayak along scenic canal ways.

River Mersey

North of Chester, the mighty River Mersey flows from Liverpool to Stockport, affording plenty of options for riverside camping. Rent a houseboat to cruise the famous river, head into Liverpool to watch a football (soccer) match or follow in the footsteps of The Beatles, or snag a coastal campsite at Crosby Beach or Formby Beach along the Irish Sea coast.

Peak District National Park

Just an hour’s drive east of Chester, the Peak District National Park is Britain’s first national park and remains one of its most popular destinations for hiking, cycling, and rock climbing. Campers have endless choices here, whether you prefer pitching your tent in the backcountry, cozying up in a luxury glamping tent, or parking your caravan on a local farm.

When to go

Summer is the liveliest—and sunniest—time to visit Chester, when you can make the most of the outdoor theatre in Grosvenor Park or head to the Moonlight Flicks outdoor cinema at Chester Cathedral. The Taste Cheshire Food and Drink Festival (April/May) also pulls in the crowds, but watch out for seasonal showers—spring and autumn weather can be temperamental, so tent campers should come prepared.
