We had a really lovely stay at this Shepherds hut. The hut is small but very cosy and modern with everything you should need. The garden area and views are stunning. The hot tub is fab and holds it's temperature, which many we have been in before do not. The hot tub was much needed after a day climbing Snowdon via the Watkin path . The hosts are loRead morevely and always on hand without being intrusive. Would highly recommend! Hide

We loved our stay at the Shepherd's hut. It makes a great base for visiting Snowdonia national park and other parts of North Wales. The hut itself was spotless and so well equipped - more so than we expected before arriving (toaster, hair dryer, kettle included)! Lots of nice little welcoming touches inside too, which was greatly appreciated. We alRead moreso had a couple of nice meals out in Bala. A real gem of a find! Hide

For our first holiday away together it was perfect, the hut was spotless, homely and had nice little touches including Prosecco from the owners. They stayed up late for our unfortunate late arrival so felt welcomed. It was private, amazing views, got a great photo of the moon using our telescope. I would definitely recommend and will come back!
