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 in Llŷn Peninsula AONB with fishing guide

Overview

Camping and glamping on the Llŷn Peninsula

There are plenty of places to go camping and glamping on the Llŷn Peninsula - with sites to suit all tastes. The Hipcamp collection is carefully curated and leaves out the big holiday parks and caravan sites which help swell the population of popular spots in the summer high season. We focus instead on smaller, independent places. We've only selected campsites on this beach-lined peninsula that we would like to stay at ourselves, but that doesn't mean they are all the same; far from it. There are fancy glamping sites with fantastic facilities and top-notch accommodation which stretch the definition of camping to its upper-most limits. Then there are places where you can simply pitch a tent and enjoy getting back to basics. And what a place to do it? The Llŷn Peninsula is a beautiful part of Wales. Almost annexed by Snowdonia National Park, it's a narrow strip of land which reaches out in to the sea. This means, wherever you choose to stay here, you'll never be far from the beach and you'll never be far from mountains either. On the coast there are cliff-top campsites with beautiful view and places where pitches are within scampering distance of beautiful beaches. Inland, it's blissfully rural and the mix of farms and fishing means there's a great supply of local produce and a healthy range of places to eat and drink which make the most of it too. Good food, fantastic places to stay and the great outdoors - is there anything else you need from a holiday destination? A few ideas of things to do, perhaps? Look no further.

Things to do on the Llŷn Peninsula

The Llŷn Peninsula is perfect for campers who count wetsuits, surboards, swimming kit, walking boots or climbing gear among their must-pack items. It's a great destination for active campers - whether you are a solo camper, a couple, group of adults or a family. If you love the great outdoors, you'll love it here. You can go walking on the Llŷn Peninsula Coastal Path and, in summer, make use of the handy walker's bus service to ferry you from place to place. You can surf at Hell's Mouth beach or choose a more sheltered spot like Abersoch for kayaking or paddleboarding. There are mountains on the peninsula if you fancy a trek but, for higher peaks, take a trip inland to Snowdonia National Park where you'll find some of the best climbing in the UK along with Mount Snowdon itself. The peninsula is also a fantastic place for wildlife watching and a boat trip to wild Bardsey Island is recommended for anyone interested in seeing seals, dolphins and seabirds. There are also plenty of further opportunities for sightseeing with castles at Criccieth and Caernarfon and lots of the attractions of Snowdonia within day-tripping distance. Of course, you may simply want to relax on holiday and The Llŷn Peninsula is an equally good place to do that with beautiful beaches, frequently stunning sunsets and fantastic places to eat and drink - including what has been described as the world's best beach bar (The Ty Coch Inn, in case you want to pop in for a sundowner)!
