    The welcome pack was a great personal touch. A peaceful and beautiful location with picturesque views. Even the rain didn't stop us from using the hot tub or going on walks around the area. Thank you!

  • "What a brilliant shepherd's hut and location."

    The hut is kitted out with everything you are likely to need during your stay, and it is ultra cosy . The location is pretty remote but with an array of footpaths and routes literally on the doorstep. A walkers dream, and some quite challenging routes. I couldn't fault anything about hut . And the location is perfect if you want get away from everything. Having said that Harlech, Barmouth and Llandanwg with their fabulous beach are just a few miles away. 10/10

    Glad you got to experience the beach and mountains. Llandanwg is special and views are incredible. See you again, Eleri Property Owner

  • "We really loved Moelfre Shepherd's hut."

    A lot of care has been taken with the The decor and little touches, making it cosy and comfortable. The views are stunning and the walking was so beautiful. The location is quite remote and the walking was truly wild walking with quite a lot of bogs if you prefer an easy walk! The wood burning hottub was fun but you do need time and patience to use it. Worth it though! We caught the night sky at about 3pm and it was totally breathtaking! Worth staying for that alone! Eleri was very welcoming and helpful and shared alot of information about the history of the farm and the best walks. We are definitely hoping to return.

    Some tweaks needed to make it live up to the price e.g. clear instructions about rubbish, provision of consumables.

    Glad you enjoyed your stay. I should have pointed out the green bin by the gate - my fault entirely. Sorry you didn’t like the wine- it’s a tricky one to suit everyone’s taste. Hope you enjoyed the rest of the welcome pack on arrival. I see the weather didn’t put you off- thanks for booking again. See you soon - you’ll love the log fire and landscape in December!

    You made our Mini Moon extra special, we really loved the card & prosecco such a lovely gesture in addition to the Merlot and Welsh cakes yummy! What lovely people you are, we are just sad that we didn't get to meet you before we left. No fault but our own as we had to get going earlier than expected. The shepherd's hut was super comfortable and cosy and we loved every second and the hot tub was so relaxing and with such a gorgeous view of the surrounding hills. The Victoria Inn was a fab recommendation, the food was fantastic. We were lucky to get a reservation and went back the next day we loved it so much. We were sorry to have to leave and return to our reality but we would love to come back next year. We recommend you come stay at one of the shepherd's Huts, if you want to relax, go walking, visit the near by Harlech Castle. The beach, there are plenty of places to see it worth it or just don't leave the Hut at all. Thanks again Mr & Mrs Franklin ♥️

    . we've already booked a week next year!! Eleri was their to welcome us on arrival and showed me how to set the hot tub up, I didn't quite manage to heat it up on the first night but every other night the tub was HOT, we were there for 4 nights and used the hot tub around 6/7 times (morning and evening because it was such an amazing view how could we not!) and we still had a couple logs left so plenty of wood for the fire/tub! Eleri really went above and beyond to make our stay as comfortable and perfect as she could, can't thank her enough for the help she gave us! There is so much to do and so many walks we only managed to scratch the surface and cannot wait to be back to discover more beautiful walks and some tasty food at the inn (definitely advise pre-booking a table at the Victoria Inn as it's very popular ;) ) The one thing I've got to mention is that there is so much more in the hut than I thought, I ended up packing a fry pan and kitchen bits and bobs as I wasn't sure what would be there when I arrived, but my oh my this hut had everything! From fry pans to potato peelers, absolutely everything I was very impressed, I now know my bags will be quite a bit lighter next time ;) There's loads of storage under the bed too for suitcases and clothes, a drying rack in the cupboard you can hang on the back of a door for drying your clothes after hiking! Oh and the heated towel rack in the bathroom was a god send for keeping those towels toasty and dry, works a treat on walking socks too ;) Cannot wait to come back and cannot recommend highly enough!!

    We stayed for 3 nights and had such a relaxing time. The hut itself is equipped to a really high standard, with everything you need for your stay. The hot tub was incredible. We had enough wood for a hot (and I mean HOT) soak every night we were there as well as lighting the fire in the hut one of the nights. It took about 2 hours to warm up on the first night but then every other night only took about an hour to get to temperature. Eleri was on hand to light the fire for us the first night and show us how to get the most bang for our buck. The hot tub is definitely not a gimmick and was the highlight of our stay. The location is stunning, with incredible views from the bed and hot tub, great walks up to the rhinnogs, amazing food at the Victoria in the village and easy access to the rest of Snowdonia. Eleri was a great help and we can't wait to come back and book both huts so we can bring our friends. Thank you for a glorious stay.

  • "We stayed here for a relaxing 4 day break (3 nights)."

    The huts are fantastic and the area is just absolutely beautiful. To wake up to the picturesque mountainous views was so peaceful. The huts have everything you need, kitchen utensils and all and have been finished to a very high standard. Very cosy and comfortable! Our only fault was with the hot tub or should I say "cold tub". On arrival, Eleri was there to greet us and explained how to use the hot tub, advising us it would take around 2 hours in all to heat up. The first problem we incurred was keeping the fire going as the wood provided was damp if not wet after being left out in the rain. After giving up the first night, we began to use our own wood we'd luckily brought with us which was dry (and little did we know you have to pay for any extra wood whilst you're there). After 3 hours of tending to the fire, we checked the temperature to find it was FREEZING! Again, we gave up the attempt. On our last full day we decided to give it one last shot and kept the fire going for over 4 hours - once again, FREEZING! We were incredibly disappointed with this as we wanted a hot tub break and wasted at least 10+ hours of our stay tending to the fire. Upon our departure, we bumped into our lovely neighbours who were staying in the hut next door, who also told us they had no luck getting the hot tub going and had the same problems - coincidence? Other than the gimmick of the hot tub, we had a lovely stay and enjoyed the plenty of walks around the area.

    Thank you for getting in contact and providing feedback following your stay at Moelfre. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at the hut and the beautiful walks and surroundings, but I am sorry to hear about the hot tub experience. I am aware on arrival we provide guests with a full explanation of how to work things in the property including the hot tub. We further provide instructions on how to make a fire in the property along with providing a full set of kindling, a generous supply of logs and fire starters in the welcome pack as provided. The hot tubs have been praised by visitors in the past for being an excellent addition to the huts. Had we known of your problems we would have responded to them immediately to help and change the supply in the log store if they were damp. I hope you weren't too disappointed by your experience and hope this will not put you off booking Moelfre - Shepherds Hut again. Yours Kindly, Gwyndaf and Eleri. Property Owner

    The photos really don’t do justice to how beautiful the scenery is, and even in stormy, wet February we were still able to sit outside in the wood fired hot tub every night - amazing! The quality of the fixtures and fittings in the Shepherds Hut are exceptional, and the attention to detail in its layout and contents is really well thought out. The hut has everything you need to keep you toasty such as underfloor heating (great for breathing red wine!) and a wood burning stove to dry your walking gear. The kitchen is fully stocked with utensils and appliances so you never have to leave the valley, though there are great recommendations in the information pack too. We felt very welcomed by the owners and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The property

Llanbedr 5.0 miles.

Sitting picture-perfect and surrounded by countryside on the outskirts of Llanbedr, Gwynedd is this handcrafted dwelling, Moelfre - Shepherds Hut.

Whether you are seeking a solo trip or looking for a romantic getaway for two, this shepherd's hut is a wonderful space in a perfect location to explore North Wales.

The lovely abode enjoys a secluded spot, sitting in the furthest point of the Nantcol valley and facing the Ardudwy Way, so guests can enjoy a lack of traffic and switch off from the busyness of everyday life.

The farm that the hut rests on also boasts a historic connection, as Colnel John was brought up here, the brother-in-law to Cromwell; you can find out even more about this in the kindly provided welcome file.

Take three steps up into the hut, where a warm and welcoming studio-style living space greets you; rustic features such as oak panels, beams and cottage-style furnishings make for a quaint setting to unwind after the day's adventures.

Use the kitchen area to rustle up simple, easy meals, before starting the woodburning stove and settling into the seating area to rest tired feet; why not plug your tablet into the USB socket and enjoy your favourite on-demand show?

The double bed is a snug space to crawl under the sheets and restore, ready for another day by the coast or in the mountains.

Moelfre - Shepherds Hut has the bonus of underfloor heating, perfect for those colder months and making the morning walk to the shower room an easy one.

Don't forget to drape your towel on the heated towel rail for extra comfort after you've rinsed off in the walk-in shower.

Make the most of your beautiful surroundings in the outdoor area at the front of the hut, where you can dine alfresco at the picnic bench, enjoy a hot cup of coffee from the Lavazza machine on the outdoor seating whilst the sun rises, or climb into the log fired hot tub for an evening of stargazing.

The hut enjyos easy access to a range of magical walks nearby, which weave through Rhinog Fach, Rhinog Fawr, Moelfre and Llethr; whilst the idyllic lake of Cwm Bychan sits in the next valley, surrounded by enchanting woodland.

Explore your local surroundings by taking a short journey into Llanbedr, a quiet village with two excellent pubs, charming cafés and walking or cycling trails taking you into Eryri (Snowdonia's) mountains.

For strolling along uninterrupted stretches of sand with mountain views, head north to Harlech, a bustling seaside resort; get takeaway fish & chips before heading to the beach or explore Harlech's impressive castle and high streets.

Lying south of the hut, Barmouth is another coastal delight with the spectacular Traeth Abermaw Beach, perfect for swimming or relaxing on the sand, whilst the town hosts a number of charming shops and eateries to discover, before climbing up to Dinas Oleu for panoramic views of the fantastic coastline.

Sitting within reach of Snowdonia's breath-taking landscapes, as well as golden sandy beaches and postcard-perfect towns, escape to Moelfre - Shepherds Hut to explore the best of North Wales.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

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.
