General

  • A beautiful handcrafted shepherd's hut for a perfect glamping stay
  • In the foothills of the Rhinogs near Barmouth, North Wales
  • Wake up to stunning views and fall asleep to the sound of waves

Just a few miles from southern Snowdonia’s seaside resort of Barmouth, the Farm Hut is a welcoming and homely shepherd’s hut. The hut is perched on the hillside of the Rhinog mountain range, with stunning views of the Cambrian Coast and Llŷn Peninsula.

Handcrafted by the owner, the Farm Hut is suitable for two guests and will provide a relaxing glamping experience for two guests. Inside it has all the mod cons essential for a glamping holiday, including a kitchen with a butler sink and double hob, a dining area, a double bed with luxurious bedding and towels, and an ensuite with wash basin, flushing toilet and an electric shower.

Outside, there is a seating area with barbecue and a wood burning firepit.

The Farm Hut is in a perfect spot for watching the sun go down over the shoreline and coast. No two sunsets are ever the same.

As part of your stay you can enjoy whiling away the hours absorbing the peace and quiet, listening to bird song and the sound of the waves from the beach below. Alternatively it is possible to take one of the many walks or hikes over the nearby Rhinog mountains or head down to the beach on foot.

    The shepherd's hut is thoroughly enchanting - clean, cosy, warm, surprisingly well equipped and full of character - as delightful as it looks in the photos. Steve was very welcoming and friendly. The setting is idyllic - sea views, dry stone walls and sheep. Again, as amazing as it looks in the photos!! We would definitely stay here again!

Perfect place for two 26/09/2016

    We had a wonderful week in the farm hut. This hut is made for two - two mugs, two plates, two knives, two forks and is so very sweet. Even though it is very small it has been fitted out thoughtfully making good use of every bit of space. Its a wonder that you can fit a huge comfortable bed, a table and chairs, cooker, sink, fridge, shower and loo into such a small space and still have room to move.

    We were treated to many a picture book sunset and even saw dolphins swimming across the bay while sitting and drinking a cup of tea in bed. It was the perfect romantic getaway and we would love to come again.

Although it was a lovely location and area I did NOT book a hut 24/07/2016

    Location and it was clean with lovely fixtures & fittings - toilet and shower

    Disliked: 

    No WiFi or small TV would have been better. I did not book this hut, I booked on a bigger site with WiFi and a TV somewhere along the line you changed it to the hut- which is not good for young children.

From the manager...

Thank you for your review, it was lovely to read that you have highly rated the shepherds hut on its cleanliness. location, accommodation and customer service.

We understand you booked online via the Pitchup website. We have contacted Pitchup to see if they originally booked you onto another 'larger' site with wifi and a small tv, but they advised that the booking was made from our page. We apologise if you have misunderstood 'The Farm Hut' is a shepherds hut but we note this in our description and this is our only self catering unit on site. We also advise within the site description that we do not have wifi, tv and we are not family friendly, as the shepherds hut only has a double bed, so suitable for two guests.
