Tented glamping with en-suite facilities and hot tubs within walking distance of two sandy beaches

The charms of beachside Abersoch village on the Welsh Llŷn Peninsula are such that its population swells by a staggering 30 times in the busiest weeks of summer. If you’ve yet to pay this place a visit, you might be wondering what all the fuss is about. Let us explain; sandy beaches, beautiful sunsets, starry night skies, a laid-back atmosphere and a healthy restaurant scene all within easy reach of Snowdonia National Park. Need we say more? All you need now is a place to stay that puts you in reach of the attractions but away from the crowds... all you need is NightSky Glamping.

This glamping-only site with five bell tents, seven safari tents and a herd of alpacas is a 30-minute walk, or a two-minute drive, from the village and its beach. The tented accommodation offers a new way to stay in an area that’s traditionally attracted the caravan and holiday cottage crew. NightSky falls somewhere between the two; with the self-catering facilities you’d expect from a cottage and the outdoor space of a campsite. Crucially though, it’s got glamping down to a T with a hot tub, a kitchen, a shower and a toilet at every tent. In fact, the six-person safari tents have two loos a piece.

Each tent also has its own decked area where, alongside that all-important hot tub, you’ll find a barbecue and chiminea. It’s the perfect place to watch the sun go down and to see what inspired site owners, Angie and Derek, to name their site NightSky. They’d probably also say it’s a place to escape what they fondly call the “midsummer madness” of Abersoch. They know it well, having only fairly recently made the move from being one of the many who visit to one of the few who stay. Greater champions of this area would be hard to find.

While Abersoch is the nearest village, just a mile-and-a-half away, there is another beach that’s even closer. Wilder (by both name and nature) Hell’s Mouth beach is good for blustery walks and surfing. And it’s not the only one, the Llŷn Peninsula is surrounded by glorious sandy beaches with a coastal path (and a handy bus service) linking the lot. You could fill your days here with walking, watersports and wildlife-watching but Llŷn is not called Snowdon’s Arm for nothing. All this coastal charm is also just 20 miles from the edge of Snowdonia National Park and the adventures that lie within.

Facilities

Each safari tent has an indoor toilet and a private outside shower/toilet pod.

The bell tents also have their own outdoor shower/toilet pod and an undercover kitchenette with a sink, two-ring electric hob, microwave, toaster and kettle. Inside the bell tents there is a double bed and a sofa bed as well as a table and chairs for dining inside or out. The bell tents sit on a decked area with BBQ, chiminea and a hot tub.

Nearby

On-site Alpaca Trekking can be organised with NightSky’s own alpacas. Off site, the closest beach, Porth Neigwl or Hell’s Mouth, is just over a mile away and known for good surf. For a more sheltered beach, head in the other direction off site, for a couple of miles to reach Abersoch main beach. Sailing lessons, kayak and paddleboard hire are all available from Abersoch Sailing School (07917 525540). There’s also another sandy beach four miles up the road at Llanbedrog where you can also head out on walks through heath and woodland. The walk up Mynydd Tir y Cwmwd to the Tin Man sculpture is recommended for beautiful views over Cardigan Bay. The Llŷn Peninsula Coastal Path is an easy route for walkers. Further afield, Pwllheli, the main town on the peninsula is about 8 miles away, Criccieth with its coastal castle is 16 miles away, Porthmadog is 21 miles away with the edge of Snowdonia National Park just beyond that.

Food & Drink

Freshly-baked bread and croissants are on sale in reception as well as just-laid eggs from your host’s own chickens. A mobile pizza-oven/kitchen visits the site a couple of times a week serving breakfasts in the morning and pizzas in the evening. There’s also a local shop just 200 metres away which sells all the basics. The closest pub is The Sun Inn (01758 712660), just a mile away, which serves good food. There are lots of bars, restaurants and shops in Abersoch village. For a sundowner overlooking the harbour, try Zinc Bar and Restaurant (01758 713433), for pizza there’s Crust Pizzeria (01758 712896) and for something a bit fancier, perhaps try The Dining Room (01758 740709). Further afield, a trip to the Ty Coch Inn (01758 720498) in Porthdinllaen is recommended – it’s the best beach bar in the world – according to some. Food is only served at lunchtime.
