A location between Lladudno and Conwy, views of mountains and a setting in the countryside of North Wales – there’s a lot to recommend Tan Y Bryn Glamping. And that’s before we’ve started on the accommodation itself. Tan Y Bryn is home to five glamping pods; each a cosy, curvy little bolthole, sleeping two, with a hot tub outside. All of these things recommend the glamping here but that’s not all; past guests are recommending it too.
Each of these well-reviewed cedar wood pods is self contained. While they all share the same facilities and layout (a well-equipped kitchenette, a double bed, an en suite shower room and WC) they have individuality and personality too. Choose between the warm hues of Bonnie’s Retreat, the sunny tones of The Swallow’s Nest and the more natural ones of The Meadow. They sit together in a little paddock but each is semi private, with a low level fence surrounding the pod, its outdoor terrace, seating, fire pit, and hot tub.
While the glamping pods are a recent addition at Tan Y Bryn, the site has been welcoming touring caravans and tents since the 1970s (just five at a time and in a separate spot). It’s a tried and tested location. One of its charms is the opportunity to meet the horses who live here through a unique bookable extra. Off site, it’s not far to the mountains you can see from your hot tub. The edge of Snowdonia National Park is just past the walled old city of Conwy – which itself is three miles away. It’s a similar distance to seaside Llandudno and its famous pier which is overlooked by the headland and country park at Great Orme. That place is a known highlight for walking on this North Wales peninsula but there are lesser-known, inland ones straight from your pod too. Head for the Bryn Pydew obelisk for more great views across the area or to the nearby nature reserve, refuelling after at the local pub.
