  The Detail...

Graig Wen prides itself on offering a fully wild camping experience whilst offering luxurious off-grid accommodation. On this award-winning site you can choose from bedding down in a bell tent, yurts, or, their latest addition, a beautifully crafted Shepherds Hut. All have magical locations on the Graig Wen site - be it tucked away in the glade or taking in the best of the views from the meadow and woodland. And with craft ales, marshmallows and breakfast hampers available at the onsite shop you know the owners have truly thought of everything.

With different glamping options available you get to choose how youd like to live it up in this beautifully wild landscape. The Glade (Open March to October), situated a little away from the main campsite offers up a slice of tranquility. Here there are three yurts to choose from - Large Yurt (sleeps 5), Tommy (sleeps 4) and Small Yurt (sleeps 2). Or you can choose the Shepherds Hut (sleeps 4) which was a new addition in 2019. All benefit from wood burning stoves, cooking facilities and picnic benches and fire bowls. The yurts are beautiful with bright woollen blankets, wooden floors, rugs, cosy sheepskins and a wood burning stove. The Shepherds Hut is stunning - with a beautiful wooden interior, it is styled to perfection. All benefit from having access to the glamping washing facilities and compost toilet.

For an even wilder glamping experience, you can stay in one of the Wild Glamping options - Pop-Up Yurt Idris (sleeps 4) or the Bell Tent (sleeps 2-4). Situated in the meadows and wood of the camping fields they both take up wonderfully secluded spots. Only accessible by foot, wheelbarrows are provided to transport your belongings - or you might be lucky enough to grab a lift in the owners off-road vehicle. Youre not totally in the wild though and are still located within easy reach of an eco-toilet and hot showers. The bell tent benefits from its own outdoor camp kitchen whilst the yurt has a wood burning stove, double bed and wooden floors. During the colder months Pop-Up Yurt Idris is moved to the upper part of the campsite making glamping an option from April through to December.

Onsite, the shop is well stocked with local produce - from sausages and bacon, to marshmallows and craft ales from the local brewery. Theres also the option of ordering a full breakfast hamper - or for a lighter breakfast, freshly-baked croissants are available every morning.

The location is stunning. Located on 45 private acres on Snowdonia National Park and near the coastal resort of Barmouth and market town of Dolgellau means there is plenty to do. With walking, cycling, wild swimming and kayaking - theres an array of outdoor pursuits. And for those wanting to take a slower pace then there are cafes, pubs and restaurants galore within just 10 minutes drive of Graig Wen.
