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 Aberystwyth with hiking guide

Overview

Aberystwyth could have been tailor-made for outdoor lovers. This likeable, lively town of candy-coloured houses fans out along a long beach, with the isolated uplands of the Cambrian Mountains rising beyond with their many miles of hiking and biking trails. This is a cultural beacon in Mid Wales, too, with one of the nation’s best arts centres, the National Library of Wales, a highly regarded university, and the equally top-drawer dining options, all of which offer plenty of diversion on wet days. The closest pitches to town are south of the Afon Rheidol river in Southgate.

Where to go

Cardigan Bay

Wales’ biggest bay, spanning from North Pembrokeshire to Gwynedd along the Ceredigion coast, was where Wales camping really took off—and Aberystwyth is perfectly positioned for a closer look at the Ceredigion region’s share of the shoreline. Along this beguiling seaboard, mainly made up of peaceful beaches and lonesome coves, there are a greater density of campgrounds and caravan parks than anywhere else in the country. You’ll find big affairs with myriad facilities and farm sites with a few tent spaces.

Cambrian Mountains

Rugged hills rise up east of Aberystwyth and, although never surpassing 2,475 feet, these are mighty wild places. So wild, in fact, that the region is known as the “Desert of Wales”—and not because of the weather! Britain’s remotest land south of the Scottish Highlands is easily accessed from Aberystwyth, with the bunch of campsites around the Devil’s Bridge beauty spot a good place to begin your explorations.

Snowdonia National Park

Kicking off just 20 miles north of Aberystwyth is Snowdonia, a smorgasbord of jagged mountain peaks, expansive forests, emerald-green valleys, and sandy coastline that comprise one of the UK’s most popular national parks. Aberystwyth makes a good base for a foray into Snowdonia’s southern flanks, but within the park boundaries are no shortage of pitch-up places, such as those on the southern and northern slopes of Cadair Idris, Southern Snowdonia’s highest summit.

When to go

Aberystwyth is a student town, and even in winter’s depths you’ll find something going on, but late spring (before summer’s big groups of holidaymakers arrive) is a beautiful time to come both for seaside and hillwalking. August, meanwhile, oversees the big festivals, when the town is at its liveliest. Aberystwyth itself catches the brunt of any incoming weather systems—it’s a place for campers to take care when the winds get up.
