Ty Crwn Mawr - Yurt
The Owner Says
Ty Crwn Mawr is a very comfortable yurt with spectacular views which can easily accommodate seven people. It has a king size bed and six single futon beds which double up as chairs/sofas. It is beautifully furnished with lovely linens, wall hangings, rugs and fairy lights creating a warm and magical space.
Right next to the yurt is a small private wooden shed containing a compost toilet and lovely hot shower cubicle, with a fully equipped and enclosed kitchen attached to it. Sink, hot and cold taps, 4 ring gas hob, fridge/freezer (summer only). We also provide cast iron pots, pans and a dutch oven to use on the fire bowl/grill in the secluded and enclosed outdoor terrace with covered dining area to the south of the yurt.
The wood stove in the yurt heats up the space very quickly. A basket of logs, some firelighters and kindling are provided. Further logs are available for £5 a pack. Firelighters and kindling are also available.
The yurt is light and airy with a ventilated round window in the roof and a north facing door to help keep things cool on sunny days and hot summer nights. The floor and walls are insulated so it's toasty even in the coldest of winters.
There are 230v sockets and lights which all run off sustainable energy sources.
WiFi internet is provided at no extra cost but due to our very rural location the internet can sometimes be a bit temperamental!
Towels and hand soap are provided. Washing up liquid, tea towels, dish cloths are provided.
Bed linen, pillows and duvets are supplied for all beds as required.
Pans, crockery, cutlery, mugs, glasses etc all provided but we do ask that you wash up and leave them clean as you found them on your arrival.
A well behaved and fully house trained puppy/dog(s) will be allowed by prior arrangement and agreement only. There will be an extra charge of £5/night/dog which will be taken care of by altering the reservation. There are further terms and conditions that you will need your agreement. DO NOT BOOK UNTIL YOU HAVE OBTAINED OUR EXPRESS AGREEMENT TO BRING YOUR DOG(S).
If you need assistance with anything just ask. We are here to help and glad to do so. :-)
The yurt is set well apart from the main house and the other smaller yurt. The log cabin kitchenette and bathroom are a few meters away.
You will have your privacy but we are only too happy to chat, help, spend time, advise on places to go, things to do, where to walk etc. Apparently we are very approachable!
Feel free to play guitars, drums, or to sing your heart out if you are musically inclined. Enjoy the space but please be mindful of other guests and your hosts in terms of noise levels.
You are welcome to quietly enjoy the land, sit by the pond and generally make yourselves at home. If we are enjoying our private spaces in our garden please do be mindful of us in terms of noise levels and our privacy. Especially if you are bringing kids with you!! We are all for having some fun and if you ask us we’ll generally be happy for you to hang out with us but sometimes we like our own space too.
Other things to note
Weather conditions: Please note that on the fairly infrequent occasions that the temperature drops below zero for more than a few of days the water supply to the cabin may start to freeze and we might then have to drain the system to prevent damage to pipes/fittings and the water heater. We have 'winterised' the plumbing but if the temperature seriously drops below zero for an extended period then there won't be much we can do. We will be able to supply water in containers for drinking, cooking and washing and the compost loo will still be fully functional. We are up at 400m so if there is heavy and persistent snowfall, access to the property from the village one mile away may only be possible on foot or in a 4x4 vehicle. It's all part of the adventure!!!
On the North Berwyn Way walking route. We have OS maps covering the whole of North Wales and along with some walking guidebooks these can be borrowed if you leave us a small returnable deposit.
Wet wipes and single use plastic bottles (specifically water) are banned on site. Please consider our environment and purchase a multi-use water bottle.
Do bring your own torches/lamps for use outside the yurt and matches/lighter to light the stove/bbq/fire pit/gas hob. You will need to supply your own charcoal for the BBQ or if you request it in advance we can arrange that for you.
No traditional or noisy ‘stag’ or ‘hen’ parties!! Respectful and considerate use of the spaces is welcomed.
Features & Facilities
Each yurt has beds, bedding, comfy seating and a log-burning stove. They each have a covered porch area with outdoor seating, and a fire pit/BBQ for cooking on. A bucket of logs and kindling suitable for the stove/firepit will be provided and more can be purchased or collected. Each yurt has its own separate cabin where there's a kitchenette, with a fridge, gas hob, cookware, tableware and utensils. There's also a compost loo and a shower per cabin.
Greener Glamping is deep in Cynwyd Forest, in the Berwyn Mountains and above the Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in North Wales. Snowdonia National Park is just 20 minutes away. Between the two, there's all the outdoor activity you could wish for: walking, cycling, climbing, white-water rafting, archery, gorge walking, zip lines, underground trampolines... the list goes on. The site sits on the North Berwyn Way walking route and Pistyll Rhaeadr, Wales' highest waterfall and a place of great significance in Celtic legend, is just over 10 miles south.
Food & Drink
It's a mile down the hill to the closest pub, The Blue Lion (01490 413656) in Cynwyd. The village also has a little shop which sells any basics you might need. For more than that, try Rhug Organic Farm shop, four miles away, which also has a café.

From Corwen, take the A5 and then the B4401 towards Cynwyd. Once you reach the village, look out for the Blue Lion pub. Turn left immediately after passing it (opposite the closed Prince of Wales pub) drive through the square and continue up the road out of the village. After 200m you'll see a sign on the right for Felin Uchaf Campsite. Keep bearing left and come up the hill for 1,000m. Keep your eyes open for the Cynwyd Forest sign on your right and keep coming up the hill. After 500m you'll see a wooden shed, a wind turbine, yurt and log cabin and a sign for Ty Mam Mawr.
The nearest train station is Ruabon. There are buses from there to Cynwyd. Then a 1 mile walk up to the property. Please see directions provided.
