  • "We stayed in this Shepherd's Hut on our MiniMoon after just getting married and it was the perfect getaway to switch off and relax."

    The views are absolutely stunning. The hut was really clean and provided everything you would need for your stay. Eleri and Gwyn are amazing hosts, informing us about the local area and letting us see the lambs! We would love to come back and visit again in the future.

    Thanks for the review. Glad you enjoyed your mini moon! We’d love to welcome you back! So much more for you to see… and so nice to talk to guest that’s so interested in the history of our area. You taught us a thing or two… great! Thanks for booking with us, Regards, Eleri . Property Owner

  • "We absolutely loved our stay here!"

    The shepherds hut is amazing and is exactly as listed online. The guest book was really helpful for learning information about the local area and where things are kept in the hut, etc. Even in January, despite not using the hot-tub, we used all facilities and the log fire kept us so warm in the evenings. The views are amazing, and we found this a good location for driving to climb Snowdon in the early hours of the morning. The local town has a couple of pubs for the evening and petrol stations and a little food shop if you need to get food whilst on your stay. The hosts were lovely! Have nothing bad to say or any improvements it was great and we are so happy we booked to stay here - thank you!

    Glad you made it up Snowdon and that you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again soon, Regards, Eleri Property Owner

    Cosy, lovely cabin with breath taking views to wake up to each morning! We had the best bedroom in the world. The hosts were so so caring and helpful during our stay, making our stay extremely relaxing. We enjoyed firing up the hot tub each evening and the lovely walks in the area, 10/10 would recommend this as a getaway! We really enjoyed ourselves here xx

    It’s a room with a view in all weather isn’t it?! Glad you enjoyed yourselves! Hope to see you again in the future. Regards, Eleri. Property Owner

  • "Llethr and its location were stunning."

    The hosts had thought of everything, and were lovely. Accommodation was perfect, extremely clean, well looked after and comfortable. The distance to the pub is a gorgeous 7km walk over stunning scenery, and there was plenty of other walks around to with a map in accommodation to check out. We later enjoyed a lovely soak in the woodfired hot tub. We will certainly be revisiting this place, and would highly recommend others to.

    The walk down is amazing. I always suggest a pub lunch and taxi back from the village. Glad you enjoyed it! Hope to see you again soon. Regards, Eleri Property Owner

  • "We had an absolutely magical weekend away in our shepherd's hut."

    The owner was so lovely and recommended us a brilliant walk across Rhinog Fach (just opposite the hut), which was the perfect way to spend our 10 year wedding anniversary! If you want peace and quiet then this is the place for you, the hot tub under the stars was amazing. One thing for future guests, be sure to do a food shop or or research/book restaurants ahead as you are genuinely a 15 minute drive from the village!

    Rhinog fach is an amazing walk- and the lakes are a bonus! Yes, it’s always better to shop on the way. I’d suggest booking for a meal during the summer busy period or bank holidays, but all three pubs have also great beer gardens to enjoy! Next time why not walk down the valley for a pub lunch and ask them the call you a taxi home… Glad you enjoyed. Regards, Eleri. Property Owner

  • "We had a fantastic stay at the shepherd hut this weekend."

    The views surrounding the property are breathtaking and the hut itself is comfortable and clean. The hot tub is wood fired and all the wood, kindling and matches are provided. There is an outside stove/bbq pit which is a nice addition to book breakfast and dinner outside too. I couldn’t fault this place , we had such a nice time and the hosts are welcoming and super friendly. My only tip would be to bring bug spray or repellent. I came home with lots of bites which can’t be helped but wish I had taken some spray with me!

    The owner was kind enough to greet us with a warm welcome as we arrived, plus the additional touch of a bottle of wine and some welsh cakes was lovely. Both owners were very kind, attentive and provided us with plenty of information regarding the local area. The hut itself catered for everything that you’d need for a break away and it is evident from the finishing touches that the owners have put there heart and soul into the hut to make it a very special place.

    This location has much to offer any type of holiday maker (even during the rainy periods) from those wanting to be 'off grid' to those wanting to explore further by visiting various heritage sites, such as castles, travelling in style on real steam railways, walking on the beach or participating in more adventurous activities at Zip World. The owners are very friendly, attentive and quick to respond to any questions or issues you may have; overall, a fantastic holiday destination during which we explored everything that Wales has to offer; highly recommended.

    We booked a little time away for our 10 year anniversary and being in the hut and being able to lock away the world for 3 days is the best thing we have ever done. We actually managed to spend quality time together away for day to day life.

Llanbedr 5.0 miles.

Settled in a stunning rural location at the furthest point of the Nantcol Valley, on the outskirts of Llanbedr in Gwynedd, overlooking Drws Ardudwy and the Ardudwy Way, is this fantastic shepherd’s hut, Llethr - Shepherds Hut.

Boasting a superb location within the renowned Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park with easy access to Coed Y Brenin Forest Park and the beautiful Morfa Dyffryn, Llethr - Shepherds Hut is an idyllic setting for escaping reality, switching off from the outside world and exploring the delights of North Wales with your loved one.

Park up in your off-road parking space, before unloading your bags and taking in your peaceful surroundings, with only two other shepherds huts within the exclusive gated site.

Be welcomed into the open-plan living space, where you can look forward to rustling up mouth-watering meals in the well-equipped kitchen, before dining with your loved one at the dining table for two or out in the private garden at the lovely picnic bench on warmer days; why not utilise the tripod grill for the firepit to cook up a storm on the barbeque?

After dinner, change into your swimming costume and indulge in a blissful soak in the wood-fired hot tub as you enjoy an evening under the stars.

As the evening cools, retreat inside where the underfloor heating and woodburning stove is sure to keep you toasty; contemporary USB plugs provide power to charge up your smart devices to ensure you don't miss a second of your favourite Netflix shows.

Freshen up with a revitalising shower and a mug of hot chocolate, before popping on your pyjamas and climbing into the sumptuous double bed to catch your rest ahead of a day of adventures.

Take a scenic stroll through the grounds of the farm and immerse yourself in the fascinating historical connections, once home to Colnel John Jones was brought up here, the brother-in-law to renowned English general Oliver Cromwell.

If you can tear yourself away, Harlech is nearby with its own extensive beach as well as its remarkable medieval castle which frequently holds events.

About the location


Harlech 3 miles; Barmouth 8 miles.

The pretty village of Llanbedr quietly nestles in ancient woodland between The Rhinogs, part of the Eryri (Snowdonia) Mountains, and the stunning golden beaches of the North Wales coastline. Situated next to the beautiful River Artro, and boasting a mild climate due to its unusual positioning behind the high dunes of a nature reserve, this charming village has an exciting array of wildlife and birds, handy local shops, bike hire and mountain walks on your doorstep, as well as two excellent pubs. The small town of Harlech is just 3 miles away and boasts the World Heritage Site of Harlech Castle, a majestic 13th century stronghold, the most impressive of all those built in North Wales by Edward I. Popular with golfers due to its famous Royal St. David's course, Harlech also boasts an excellent variety of amenities including some good quality restaurants and the most magnificent six-mile long sandy beach, perfect for wonderful walks and family fun. Nearby Barmouth offers the amazing Panorama Walk along the beautiful Mawddach Estuary, providing breathtaking vistas, which were described by John Ruskin as “the most sublime view in Europe” and also a harbour from which you can catch a ferry to Fairbourne for a ride on the miniature railway, or a boat trip out to sea to try mackerel fishing. With the delights of Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park and beautiful Cardigan Bay to discover, this is a fantastic holiday location at any time of the year.
