Parc Pen Y Bryn: The cabins

General

  • Peaceful and well-maintained site on the edge of Clocaenog forest
  • A 15-minute drive from Llyn Brenig; 25 minutes from Betws-y-Coed
  • Modern site with easy access for large vehicles and a shared kitchen

Peace, quiet and woodland explores await at Parc Pen Y Bryn, a laidback, small-scale holiday park on the edge of Clocaenog forest. Some of north Wales' finest spots – like Llyn Brenig, Betws-y-Coed and Snowdonia National Park – are within easy reach of this niftily-located site.

There's hardly a house to be seen at this secluded spot, where you can admire valley views and, in the distance, watch wind turbines turning slowly in the breeze. Well-placed outdoor furniture is on hand for those looking to sit in the open air and take it all in (perhaps, as per the site's pics, with a glass of vino).

Parc Pen Y Bryn's top-notch hardstanding pitches make it simple for those travelling with tourers to roll up and relax. (The managers are also keen to point out that pesky narrow lanes won't get between you and your hols at this easily accessible site.) As well as that, the small number of pitches means there'll be ample room to roam at this spacious site, including for kids and dogs.

The modern facilities aren't half bad either: the well-kept toilet and shower block can accommodate peeps who haven't brought their own, and there's a compact communal kitchen where you can prep packed lunches in the run-up to your next big explore. Those partial to cooking over coals can also set up a barbecue.

Clawddnewydd, with its shop and community-run pub, is a 10-minute drive away (the site managers particularly recommend swinging by for Sunday lunch). The bigger town of Corwen on the river Dee is also close by (20 minutes).

    This was our first time glamping and we feel like the standard set is now very high. The cabin was lovely. It was immaculate, comfortable and had everything we needed. I love the way the cabins are set because it feels very private and exclusive.
    We did the Bala Parkrun Saturday, had a lovely breakfast in Bala and a walk round the Lake. We then went off to Barnmouth to explore. Sunday we did a hike around Ruthin.
    Lots to do in the area and will definitely be back.

    The cabin was beautifully decorated, the kitchenette is one of the best that I have had in a pod/cabin. The gas cooker and a decent sized fridge made a massive difference in being able to cater/cook for myself. The tv was an added luxury and connecting to the WiFi was easy enough!

    The toilets & showers were clean and the water was warm, definitely bring a torch or two with you for the night time toilet trips!
    I noticed a family next to me with children who were really enjoying the space outside to run around, I will definitely be booking again with my son in the future.

    Overall a really pleasant experience and thoroughly enjoyed my time here :)

  • Liked: 

    Easy to find, especially as we were sent a message with directions on the day of arrival. Lovely quiet setting with clean toilet and shower blocks. Easy ehu on a level hard standing. Our name was posted on our pitch, easy to see. Fresh water and toilet dump within arms reach, almost. Couldn’t drain grey waste directly into drain, had to use a bucket, but not a problem. Would recommend this site, and would go back if in the area.

    Disliked: 

    Couldn’t get a tv signal, but could have just been our incompetence. Anyway who needs tv when your in such a lovely place.

From the manager...

Thankyou for your kind review. TV signal is achievable by most but on some occasions some can’t get it. Best tip I can give is point it towards snowdon 🏔. Thanks again. Rob & Ffion 😀

Directions

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Llyn Brenig (15 minutes' drive) is likely to prove popular with experienced fishing fans – the trout here spend their whole life in cold Welsh water, so they're hardier than most and have something of a feisty reputation. There's also bike hire available and six varied lakeside trails to choose from.

Betws-y-Coed (25 minutes) is a hub for train fans, who can contentedly chug along on the Conwy Valley narrow-gauge railway. (The mainline station also backs right onto a range of cafés, restaurants and shops, one of which is housed in a converted carriage.) A short walk outside the town are the Swallow Falls, where you can watch the Llugwy foaming over the rugged rocks.

Want to use your time in north Wales to delve into the country's industrial past? The fably laid out (and free to enter) National Slate Museum (an hour) will be the one for you.

Must see

  • Bodelwyddan Castle (15.6 miles)
  • Rhuddlan Castle (17.5 miles)
  • Bodnant Garden (19.4 miles)

National Trust

  • Ty^ Mawr Wybrnant (15.6 miles)
  • Chirk Castle (17.1 miles)
