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.

Forest shepherd's huts near Blackpool guide

Overview

Well-known for its Pleasure Beach Amusement Arcade and sky-high rollercoasters; the Blackpool Tower with views over the Irish Sea; and a stretch of sandy seafront with no fewer than three piers, Blackpool is a retro coastal destination in northwest England with proximity to three national parks. Stroll along the pedestrian promenade (known as the Golden Mile), enjoy the high ropes of Stanley Park, and take to the water at the indoor Sandcastle Waterpark before venturing further afield for a camping getaway. Campers aren’t short on options, from kitschy holiday villages and caravan parks to glamping yurts and back-to-basics campsites.

Where to go

Peak District National Park

Stargaze, hike, mountain bike, horseback ride, and go sailing in the Peak District National Park, an International Dark Sky Reserve mostly situated in Derbyshire. Just an hour and a half outside of Blackpool, the Peak District is home to rolling hills, quintessential English countryside, and former spa towns like Bakewell and Buxton. Pitch your tent at moorside campsites, luxe glamping grounds, or rent a caravan to enjoy the full-service amenities of a holiday park.

Yorkshire Dales National Park

Bordered by no fewer than three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty—the Forest of Bowland, Nidderdale, and the North Pennines—the Yorkshire Dales National Park is a fantastic destination for outdoor adventurers. Lay your head in luxe glamping pods, caravan parks, or back-to-basics campsites before visiting popular villages like Hawes, walking the Pennine Way, and geocaching, biking, or horseback riding your way through this rugged, heather-clad International Dark Sky Reserve.

Lake District National Park

There are few better places in Cumbria to take to the water, try long-distance walks, and camp, caravan, or glamp than the popular Lake District National Park. This UNESCO World Heritage site, once a key inspiration for Romantic poets, is located just an hour outside of Blackpool and is best-known for sailing, kayaking, open water swimming, and kayaking, as well as the towering (but climbable) Scafell Peak. You can also take it easy in laid-back towns like Keswick, Kendal, and Ambleside.

When to go

For beach days and ice creams, the best time to visit Blackpool is during the sunny summer months of June to September; however, this is also peak season. To enjoy the annual Blackpool Illuminations spectacular, visit between August and October, the ideal time for roasted chestnuts and hot sugared doughnuts. Spring is also a lovely season in Blackpool, although you should prepare for rain year-round in this coastal destination.

Know before you go

  • Blackpool is well connected by road and rail to other parts of the UK, including Preston, Manchester, and York.
  • It’s worth trying to catch a ride on one of the antique trams that operate the length of the Blackpool Tramway.
  • Blackpool is a popular hen and stag party destination, and, while generally family-friendly, the area can get especially rowdy on weekends and bank holidays. Take this into consideration when planning your trip.
  • There are plenty of camping and outdoor supply stores in bustling Blackpool.
