General

  • Luxury glamping and bushcraft experiences on an Iron Age hill fort
  • Snowdonia National Park within 30 minutes’ drive; 50 mins to Chester
  • Furnished bell tents with kitchens, firepits, logburning stoves

Is it time for a hol in north Wales? If the answer’s a resounding yes, march directly towards The Forge for glamping at the foot of an Iron Age hill fort from which lovely sunsets can be seen across Denbighshire...

This stellar site is also home to carpeted bell tents with real beds, lush linens and cosy cushions, as well as woodburning stoves to keep you at a comfy temperature all year round. Each unit sits on a private deck – excellent for sunny snoozes – and has a kitchen supplied with running water and a gas hob, along with wine glasses and candles to help you create an atmospheric setup when it comes to eating in the open air.

Hot showers and private, eco-conscious composting toilets are also on hand, plus guests will have their own firepit for grilling up meals alfresco using ingredients from the organic farm shop about five minutes’ drive away. They can also gather their own freshly laid eggs for breakfast, feed the hens in the morning, pick seasonal fruit and veg, and get a lesson on how to make chutneys and jams.

Sticking with the great outdoors, you can get to know the local nature by signing up for a course from the Wild Bushcraft Company based on The Forge’s grounds, or easily head off on DIY tours of the Dee valley and Snowdonia National Park (both around a half an hour’s drive).
