- 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.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
