Luxury, en-suite glamping with a hot tub on the Llŷn Peninsula with stunning views

If nature was a beauty contest, the Llŷn Peninsula might just win best all-rounder. For ‘Snowdonia’s arm’ exhibits the best of Wales’ many wonders – lush green hillsides, hidden coves and sandy beaches peppered with timeless seaside settlements, all bookended by the bluest of seas and dramatic mountain peaks. An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the peninsula’s proximity to Snowdonia National Park means visitors can be scaling the mountains in the morning before enjoying a lazy afternoon on the beach, all in the same day. Needless to say, this peerless position means the views from pretty much anywhere are simply breathtaking. Case in point – the panoramas you can enjoy from this glamping getaway near Pwllheli. 

A hideaway in name and nature, Tan-y-Capel Hideaway lies on a secluded three acre spot in the tiny hamlet of Ceidio. For any couples seeking a romantic retreat in one of the country’s most stunning settings, this is the place. Comprising just two hi-spec glamping units – a modern pod and a beautiful shepherd's hut – situated in a tranquil garden, glampers here enjoy a slice of Wales to themselves. Each cosy abode features a proper double bed, an en-suite bathroom and a neat little kitchenette featuring most mod-cons. For a particularly indulgent escape, both the pod and shepherds hut also have their own private hot tub set within their garden, both with views across countryside, mountains and out to sea. Thanks to the Llŷn Peninsula’s curious micro-climate – making it one of Wales’ sunniest regions – you’ll certainly get your money’s worth out on the shingle terrace.

There’s an abundance of things to see and do in the vicinity. The Llŷn’s stretch of the 870-mile Wales Coast Path is amongst the most stunning and is eminently accessible from the site. Be sure to make it to picturesque Porthdinllaen beach, home to the famous Ty Coch Inn, a legendary beachside boozer that regularly features amongst the world’s best in the travel polls. A pint and a paddle on a hot summer’s day – what more could you ask for?

Hideaway Pod
Excellent glamping pod in a beautiful area. Rebecca was extremely welcoming and the pod was wonderfully stocked with all the necessities, as well as home made biscuits and a bottle of prosecco. We'll definitely be visiting again, hopefully soon!

Hideaway Pod
This was our second stay at Tan-y-Capel and me & my partner enjoyed it just as much as the first time. Rebecca and Dave are superb hosts, very welcoming and friendly. The hideaway pod is the perfect little home to enjoy quality time and the added bonus of prosecco and cookies are a lovely gesture. We will most definitely be visiting again.

From the host
Tan-y-Capel Hideaway is located on the gorgeous Llyn peninsula an area recognised for its outstanding natural beauty combining fabulous sandy beaches with dramatic hills and mountains. We have 2 units, our beautiful shepherds hut, set in its own flower meadow and our cosy pod with its own deck and private garden both enjoy spectacular views over rolling countryside and out to sea. The hideaway pod and hut both have wonderfully comfortable beds with cotton fresh bedding, throws, cushions and pillows. There is a shower room with luxury toiletries and soft fluffy towels both have self contained kitchenettes with bbq outside for additional cooking. The hideaway pod and hut both have double doors that open out onto either a generous private decked area or garden where their hot tub sits, just such a wonderful addition to our already stunning pod and hut, so whatever the weather or outside temperature you can sit amongst warm relaxing bubbles with a glass of prosecco admiring the stunning view and watching the simply fabulous sunsets and at night time gazing up at a night sky that contains more stars than you can ever imagine. Once finished in the hot tub there are fluffy towelling robes and slippers along with throws and fleeces to keep you cosy and warm. There is a welcome pack on your arrival that includes tea coffee milk and sugar.We are keen to welcome are guests and ensure our guests have a wonderful stay so any questions or information re things to do and places to visit of which there are plenty please don't hesitate come and have a chat.
Nearby attractions

The Llŷn Peninsula is one of Wales’ most captivating coastal regions. Explore its many stunning beaches like Porth Nefyn (2 miles away) or Porthdinllaen (3 miles) home to one of the world’s best beach bars. For surfing (of the board, kite and wind variety) Porth Neigwl is excellent or you could spend a day at chic Abersoch, the sailing capital of Wales. There are several more hidden spots along the coast that are only accessible via the Wales Coast Path – just ask your hosts for the best walking or cycling routes. Further afield, Caernarfon and Criccieth are well worth a visit, not least for their castles and stunning views (the former’s overlooking Anglesey). The extraordinary Italianate village of Portmeirion (as seen on 60s cult classic TV series The Prisoner) is another essential stop. And with golf is your thing, Nefyn & District Golf Club (01758 720966) is less than 10 mins drive away.

Food and drink

Pwllheli and its environs boasts plenty of pub and places to eat. Y Bryncynan (01758 720879) is less than 2 miles away at Morfa Nefyn. They serve real ales and wholesome pub grub from breakfast through to evening meals. The Ship Inn (01758 720559) at Edern serves exquisite dishes such as Welsh beef wellington and pan fried hake. Be sure to book ahead for Sunday lunch. The Cliffs Inn (01758 720356), also at Morfa Nefyn, is a great spot for lunch with a spacious sun terrace overlooking the sea. But for views, the pick of the pubs has to be Ty Coch Inn (01758 720498). Regularly voted one of the world’s best beach bars, the beer garden here is the golden sands of Porthdinllaen beach. Other worthy dining options include The potted Lobster (01758 431432) and Tremfam Hall (01758 740169) which both come highly recommended by your hosts.
