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.

    The shepherd’s hut is tiny but very comfortable, set in a fabulous spot overlooking the river. With the right weather, it’s really idyllic, and you’d be happy to spend all day sitting on the little terrace watching the river roar past. The hut has everything you could want or need, except a shower, for which you’ll need to visit the adjacent shower block.

    Nice peaceful site with great views. The hut overlooks the river and we saw herons, wagtails, a robin and other birds. Glorious weather which is always a bonus. The owners are friendly and helpful and the hut was comfortable and a perfect base for exploring Snowdonia and Anglesey.

    We stayed in the shepherd’s hut for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. The furnishings are lovely and modern, the bed is very comfy, and the hut is really well insulated in a gorgeous and peaceful area. The owners are lovely and gave some great recommendations, and made the stay really easy. Anglesey, Llanberis, and Caernafon are good day trips. The WiFi doesn’t have a very strong connection in the hut so if you’re planning on working remotely this might not be a good choice.
    Our only gripe was that after spending almost £100 a night we still had to pay to have a shower, which is understandable for the caravans but certainly not for such a high price for the hut. Our suggestion is to give the shepherd’s hut residents shower tokens. (Also ladies, £1 gets you 3 minutes in the ladies showers and 5 minutes in the mens, so if it’s quiet then use the mens.)
    Other than that we have absolutely no complaints, and had a stellar holiday. Thank you very much. 🙂
