A spacious shepherd’s hut with its own riverside terrace. A little piece of heaven in the beautiful North Wales countryside. The first thing to tell you about Ty-Bugail-Llanrug is that its location is superb. You’re in the foothills of Snowdonia, surrounded by farmland, lakes, rivers and trees.
It is a supremely beautiful green and pleasant land which comes with its own natural soundtrack. Tune your ear to birds, bees and distant bleating sheep. They’re all telling you to slow down, breathe deep and relax.
This shepherd’s hut on the banks of the River Seiont in North Wales is the perfect romantic getaway.
The accommodation is private, with a lovely decked terrace that looks out over the meandering river below and rolling countryside beyond. There’s a table and chairs out here. It’s the perfect spot to take it easy and enjoy some delicious food and drink.
Inside the hut there’s a supremely comfortable double bed, a neat little kitchen area and separate loo. A sofa is well positioned in front of the floor-to-ceiling terrace doors which means you can nature-watch from inside too.
The Snowdonia National Park is an International Dark Sky Reserve, so remember to look to enjoy some heavenly contemplation after dark. The plough, Cassiopeia and the North Star should be easy to spot from here.
This shepherd’s hut on the banks of the River Seiont in North Wales is heated and connected to wifi. Showers are located a short walk away in spick-and-span shared amenities block.

This shepherd’s hut on the banks of the River Seiont in North Wales is part of the small but beautiful Cil y Bont caravan park.
You’ll find it midway between the Seiont’s source at Llyn Padarn and where the river meets the sea at the Menai Strait. Llanberis and Caernarfon are just a short drive away.
The whole of the Snowdonia National Park is on your doorstep. From hiking to watersports, high speed zip wires to high speed boat trips, there’s plenty to do to keep the whole family entertained.
Nearby attractions include Greenwood Forest Park, Gypsy Wood, Zip World, Rib Ride, Electric Mountain and Llanberis Lake Railway. If you fancy a jaunt up Snowdon, you’re close to the Llanberis path. If you prefer to chug your way up you can do just that on the Snowdon Mountain Railway.
Caernarfon is around five miles away. The town’s huge 13th century fortress is one of the best-preserved medieval castles in the world and staggering in its scale and drama. The castle is also home to the excellent Royal Welch Fusiliers Museum.
Go five miles the other way and you’ll arrive at Llanberis, a thriving little mountain town with plenty of cafés, small shops and the beautiful lake at Llyn Padarn. Head to the southern end of the lake to visit Dolbadarn Castle – one of the last true ‘Welsh’ castles, built in the early 13th century by Prince Llywelyn the Great.
You can’t come to this part of Snowdonia without driving the short distance over the Menai Bridge to Anglesey. Visit one of the most beautiful beaches in the world at Newborough Warren and walk out to the home of the Welsh goddess of love at Llanddwyn island. On your way back enjoy lunch or dinner with a stunning mountain backdrop at Dylan’s in Menai Bridge.
