We stayed over the New Year and had a lovely time. This is a special place and the excellent reviews are well deserved. On arrival Catherine made us tea with scones and jam and cream and we sat chatting for half an hour. We loved the hut and the porch came in very useful when we arrived back from a walk on New Years day with wet clothes. Plenty of drying space. Catherine is a warm and generous host and was so accomodating. We hope to go back this year. if you are considering booking, don't hesitate. This was the best of our many stays in Snowdonia to date.
I wanted a get away weekend with my partner as a little surprise for her to Wales and after reading all the reviews for hut, I couldn't resist but to book it.
Let me tell you, best decision I ever made! Such an amazing location, so easy to get to Mt Snowdon and all other well known attractions. We had breakfast down the road and one of the best breakfasts I ever had.
Catherine was phenomenal, made us feel at home, even gave me a lift down the road so we could get some bits from the shop, gave us access to the big kitchen in the house. However we did cook in the hut 1 night and it was absolutely fine, it really is cosy.
The bed was super comfortable and warm.
Waking up to the the views in the morning was just something else. I wish I had the words to describe our stay and the amazing hospitality by Catherine. Looking into coming back in the summer hopefully.
Perfect little hideaway for a short break, and a nice change from a hotel or b&b. The shepherd's hut has great views of Moel Siabod and was very cosy and comfortable despite the October weather! Catherine is a friendly and helpful host and I would recommend this as a place to stay
We stayed in the Shepherd hut for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. It had everything that you need to be comfortable and the views are amazing from it. Catherine is an excellent host who is very helpful and welcoming. We would recommend anyone to stay there and would do so again. It is a perfect base for exploring North Wales. The place was spotlessly clean and to have milk and some biscuits waiting for us on arrival was a lovely touch. You definitely need a car as it is a few miles to Bets y coed.
Just got back from a few days away, staying here and using it as a base to explore north wales! It was absolutely perfect for what we wanted and was so snug and cosy. Never once were we cold!
Catherine went out of her way to ensure that we had everything that we needed and even said to come into her house if we needed to dry any clothes etc. Some milk was left in the fridge for us, for an emergency cup of tea when we arrived, along with biscuits, hot chocolate sachets and coffee!
The hut had everything that we needed; a stove, a microwave, a kettle, a toaster, sink, washing up liquid and equipment, knives, chopping boards, mugs, cutlery, plates, hair dryer, board games, etc etc etc! We booked the hut through a glamping site, so brought along all of the things we usually would when camping, but we didn’t need any of it as it was all provided! Classing the hut as ‘glamping’ definitely doesn’t do it justice!
We booked the weekend around some activities that we wanted to do as part of the Zip World chain. The hut was in the middle of all 3 of the zip world sites, so were all in a short driving distance of us. It was also 5 minutes away from the ideallic Betws-y-coed.
All in all, a lovely few days away! Cat cuddles topped it all off
Thank you Catherine! X
Thank you to Catherine who goes out of her way to make sure you are comfortable: and we were! Lovely accommodation, very convenient for Snowdon and the Zipworld adventure. The views from the hut are marvellous, and Catherine has thought of every possible little detail we could need. The attached bathroom was great, the bed one of the most comfortable, all in all a great little break in unusual accommodation.
Do not be mistaken, this may be the most awesome get away in Wales we have ever had. The Hut it perfectly situated on a hill side with views over the national park. Magical scenes of mist coming over the hills.
Our host was perfect and ensured that we were always comfortable and had everything we needed. If you get the chance book in and give it a go.
