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 Colwyn Bay guide

Overview

On the North Wales coast, Colwyn Bay boasts a fabulous beach for watersports that extends in a near-unbroken sandy band 20-odd miles east to the Dee Estuary. The snazzy Porth Eirias development adds a deft modern touch to the waterfront’s old-school seaside fun, while vestiges of the original Victorian resort also remain in town. Countryside also beckons nearby at Great Orme headland, above Llandudno and within the northern reaches of Snowdonia (Eyri) National Park. The best campsites are west of Colwyn Bay, at the base of the Creuddyn Peninsula upon which Llandudno sits.

Where to go

North Wales Coast

Beginning around Colwyn Bay, a long stretch of sandy beach spreads east some 20 miles through fellow resort Rhyl to the Dee Estuary. Most campers come here to sample the seaside—it’s an easily accessible coast, connected via railway, with plentiful diversions from promenades to funfairs. Caravan and camping sites can be found everywhere: Colwyn Bay and Rhyl have the most choice. Hiking-wise, the Wales Coast Path passes through while Prestatyn is the trailhead for Offa’s Dyke Path.

Great Orme Headland & Llandudno Area

Llandudno is affectionately considered Colwyn Bay’s “rival” resort, situated six miles northwest of town, but exploring the bulbous peninsula on which it lies provides interesting contrasts with Colwyn Bay. Great Orme, the headland and country park above Llandudno, has some surprisingly wild scenery, and you can extend the walking or cycling along the edge of Conwy Sands and the wooded inland hills. The area’s nicest campsites are at the peninsula base, west of Colwyn Bay.

Northern Snowdonia

Beyond the beaches, Colwyn Bay can also wow nature lovers with mountain scenery. The northern reaches of Snowdonia (Eyri) National Park lie beyond Conwy, five miles southwest of Colwyn Bay. Constituting all the uplands north of the Betws-y-Coed-Bethesda A5 road, Northern Snowdonia’s biggest features are the peaks of the Carneddau range, propped up by Wales’ largest extent of 2,500-foot ground—and a hillwalkers’ delight. Camp along the upland’s eastern edge, south from Conwy at villages like Caerhun.

When to go

Water babies should know that the best time to hit the beaches hereabouts is June through September, and each month has its merits. The hottest average daily temperatures come in July and August, when the school holiday season also contributes to sites being busier. June has weather that’s almost as warm but without the crowds, while August and September bring the warmest seawater temperatures. And spoiler alert: campers should steel themselves for cool, wet weather even during summer’s zenith.
