  • "Absolutely stunning surroundings."

    Beautifully presented, warm cosy shepherds hut, with a lovely log burner and hot tub. Met the owner who was very friendly and helpful. Couldn't ask for anything more! Highly recommended!

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 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.

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 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 Snowdonia National Park and beautiful Cardigan Bay to discover, this is a fantastic holiday location at any time of the year.
