- Buy fresh eggs and locally sourced bread, bacon and milk on site
- Community-run pub a few minutes' walk away
Have you ever bedded down in a shepherd's hut in Wales? If your next Welsh hol is Wrexham based and your fancy is tickled by having a site to your very own selves, you'll likely have a jolly time at The Hut at Hafod Las.
This is all you need for topping Welsh glamping: the well-equipped hut here is custom made and comes with a big sofa that changes into a full-size double bed to snuggle down on. The log burner keeps all toasty on cooler nights and there's also an outside dining area and barbecue.
And it's in a splendid Welsh setting, in a meadow on the outskirts of the handsome little village of Minera with spiffing views of the surrounding countryside. For boozy beverages, a community-run pub serving a wide range of traditional ales as well as food is a few minutes' walk away.
Hafod Las has private access, off-road parking and secure storage for bikes. Breakfast packs with eggs from the Hafod Las hens and bread, milk, sausages and bacon all sourced from the Wrexham area are available to buy on site.
Here without a car? The local bus stop is a short stroll away to hail the regular services to Wrexham town centre. (Bus timetables are available on site.)

Party: 2 adults
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.

Directions from A483 Wrexham:
Take the A525 towards Ruthin. After about 2 miles look out for a fuel station on your left-hand side. A short distance after this take a left turn opposite a pub called The Five Crosses, this will be signposted to Minera. You will go over a couple of speed bumps and will see the school on your left. There will be a telephone box and a bus stop in front of you and you need to take the right fork. This goes uphill and you will pass the pub on your left and church on your right. Our road (Cae Glas Lane) is first on the right after the church - just after a paddock with iron railings.
Wrexham, north Wales and shenanigans across the border in England are all easily reached from The Hut at Hafod Las – and you can be in Liverpool, Manchester or Snowdonia National Park within the hour.
Very close to home, the ancient village of Minera and its surroundings will keep historians jolly happy, from the pilgrimage routes trodden by monks of years gone by to the area's lead mines and quarries. Two National Trust properties within easy reach of the shepherd's hut and we also think historyheads will be most pleased with the World Heritage Site at Pontcysyllte...
Hikers will also be happy as the Offa's Dyke Path and the Clywedog Trail are both close by as well as quiet lanes and paths; if you prefer to race around at a faster pace, a mountain bike centre is very close to Hafod Las and riding stables and an off-road driving centre are a few minutes' drive away.
Birdwatchers, climbers, pony trekkers and quad bikers will also find what they fancy in the area – and if you're a food fancier, the first-rate pubs and restaurants in the area should provide a good range of choice.
