  • "The shepherd's hut was very cosy and comfortable and I really enjoyed my stay."

    It was such a peaceful and lovely setting. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful and I would definitely recommend the property to others.

  • "We booked at really short notice, booked at 9:15 in the morning and arrived before 6 the same evening."

    John phoned me while I was on my way to let me know that he would be out when we arrived and that he wasn't expecting to be back until late so he would see me in the morning and that he had left the key in the door for us. The kitchen area was very well equipped with everything we needed and there was an extra blanket and clock radio supplied. It's a really peaceful site with a beautiful view and the decking area really adds to the space - a perfect spot for breakfast overlooking the river. John and his son were extremely helpful and I will definitely be returning.

  • "Owners were very helpful and friendly."

    Excellent view over the river. Very peaceful and relaxing. large decking area to sit in evening and watch all the local wild life. A nice large field to let your dog wonder.

  • "The location is fabulous, perfect setting on the river, the owners are lovely."

    However, the hut itself could do with a really good clean, I had to clean the cupboards before I put our food in there, whilst it wasn't 'dirty' as such there certainly could have been an improvement on the cleanliness, that said the bedding & towels were spotless. The bed & sofa take over the inside & I think there could be better use/arrangement of the furniture inside, also, the bed itself is not very comfortable, it was ok for x2 nights. It's basically a mini caravan with a double bed & large sofa, it has got a chemical loo inside (which you have to empty yourself), there is a toilet & shower block near by, if you want a shower ensure you take 20p & £1 coins (£1 is approx. 2.5 minutes) I would imagine, in the height of summer (we stayed early November), with the great decking area over-looking the river, it would be lovely chilling out there outside after a lovely walk around the Welsh countryside..

  • "This site is a little gem, facilities and shepherds hut are great."

    However they are completely let down by the cleanliness, the hut had clean bedding which was good.The hut and equipment had not been cleaned at all after the previous people, we did not expect to start cleaning at the beginning of our holiday but we did. The site facilities were good, except they were never cleaned all week, the mop and cleaning cloths were disgusting in the toilets/showers. We are not complainers and do not usually leave reviews, but on this occasion feel we have to say something. If this sites cleaning was totally improved, this site would get five stars. Owners very friendly and helpful.

  • "Really lovely place on a nice quiet campsite owned by a lovely welcoming family."

    This shepherd hut has everything you need and is super cozy with an amazing view over the river. It's glamping at its finest, but just wish we'd know that the water wasn't on the mains and we'd need a stash of 20p's to pay for showers. Not a problem for us but worth mentioning for the next visitors.

Walkers will delight in the excellent choice of walking spots in North Wales, with many wanting to head up Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon), Wales' highest peak, which has an extensive network of trails to explore, or head to the coast to embark on a journey along the Wales Coastal Path, with Wales actually the first country in the world to have a footpath around its entire coastline.

Those who would prefer to enjoy a scenic and effortless journey to the top of Snowdon, fear not for the Snowdon Mountain Railway runs from Llanberis station and climbs to the summit of Snowdon, so you can experience stunning panoramic views and visit the UK's highest visitor centre Hafod Eryri.

About the location


Llanberis 2 miles; Caernarfon 4 miles; Betws-y-Coed 15 miles.

Llanrug is a small village with two pubs, two shops, a Post Office, a hotel with indoor swimming pool and fitness room, and a 9 hole golf course is nearby. The village is situated in the foothills of the Eryri (Snowdonia) Mountain Range, only 3 miles from famous Llanberis. Dominated by the grandeur of the Snowdon Massif, Llanberis is flanked by two lakes, Llyn Padarn and Llyn Peris, and is one of the most popular mountain tourist centres in the Snowdonia National Park. Llanberis is something of a 'mecca' for walkers and climbers, being the starting point for the ascent of Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) - the highest mountain in Wales. The ascent can be made either by train, on the Snowdonia Mountain Railway, or on foot along one of the many routes to the summit. Llanberis boasts excellent places to eat and drink and a great choice of shopping. Just 4 miles from Llanrug, on the coast, is Caernarfon with its magnificent 13th century castle and town walls and close by are National Trust properties at Penrhyn and Plas Newydd and many wonderful beaches.
