At J24 exit the A55 (the main coastal road across North Wales) head into Abergele. Turn left at the second set of traffic lights by the George and Dragon pub. Continue on the A548 out of Abergele towards Llanrwst for two and a half miles. At the Penrefail crossroads, turn right onto Roman Rd/B5381 signposted Betws yn Rhos. Take the first right after 400ft onto a single track country lane. Continue for just under one mile and Hollow Oak Glamping will be signposted just after the woods on the right hand side.
