The Owner Says

Inside the yurt there is a central woodburning stove (first basket of logs free) surrounded by cosy furnishings. Have a good night’s sleep in the comfy double bed supplied with duvet pillows and clean sheets. We also supply a double futon and a single futon to laze around on during the day, and to have a good sleep on at night. You will need to bring your own sleeping bag or duvet for this. Cook up a hot supper in the yurt using the double gas ring hob and various pots and pans. Or have a barbecue outside while watching the sun go down across the valley. And there’s always the campfire for sausages and marshmallows.

Features & Facilities

Yurts are furnished with a double bed (and bedding), a double and single futon (bring your own bedding), a central wood-burning stove (first basket of logs included) and cooking facilities, including a double gas ring, pans, utensils, crockery, cutlery and tea towels. Outside there is a picnic bench and BBQ and each yurt has its own private bathroom in the wash block a short stroll away with a lavatory, shower and basin. The wash block also has a shared room for washing up. This has a large sink and drainage board, kitchen units, fridge and worktop.

Activities

It's just over a mile to the market town of Llanrwst, which marks the eastern edge of Snowdonia National Park. The nearest of the main mountains to climb is Carnedd Llewelyn, though travel a little further west and the Snowdon Horseshoe (01286 870211) takes in the most famous peaks – it's considered one of the best ridge walks in southern Britain. In the town itself there is a beautiful old bridge said to be designed by Inigo Jones and built in 1636 by Sir John Wynn of Gwydir Castle (01492 641687). Overlooking it is a wonderful ivy clad cottage (see food and drink) and steps down the bank that allow you to swim and dabble in the waters during summer. Slightly further south Betws-y-Coed is one of the honeypot locations in Snowdonia and for good reason. There's a host of excellent independent shops and also the Snowdonia National Park Visitor Centre (01690 710426), making it a good place to start. Head 20 minutes north, meanwhile, to explore magnificent Conwy Castle (01492 592358).

Food & Drink

Aside from the BBQ outside each yurt, there is also a communal fireplace where you can share food, wine and stories with other guests. Cook up a hot supper in the yurt using the double gas ring hob and utilities provided or, if you plan on treating yourself, the nearest pubs and restaurants are a mile down the hill in Llanrwst – there are plenty of options. When the sun's out, try La Barrica for lunch, with outdoors seating that spills out across the main, central area of the town, or cross the bridge to a wonderful tea cottage covered in ivy, Ty Hwnt I'R Bont Café (01492 642322). They reportedly, serve the best scones in Wales!
