General

  • Custom-made shepherd's hut in a meadow setting
  • 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.)

Please note

    ...everything fabulous! Beautiful location, incredibly well equipped Hut, toasty log fire, comfortable, relaxing, attention to detail, and supplied with good quality equipment. Literally everything has been thought of here...all you need to bring is yourselves and enter into this lovely bijou accommodation which is just delightful and a joy to behold inside and out. Lovely local pub serves tasty homemade food and just 5 minute or so walk away. Lovely walks from hut or jump in car for loads of places to visit nearby.

    It all, well equipped comfortable, the log burner packed a punch . Bed was warm with a nice duvet and pillows, toilet and shower area clean and snug very efficient.
    You get all you need for a technology free weekend apart from the digital radio which was actually a nice touch away from the TV set .
    You have to get into the whole appeal of what this is and what it was used for in its past life , don't expect 5 star luxury this is proper stuff and you even get authentic Sheep in the field again nice touch.
    Fridge available. Barn storage for bikes secure bbq outside chairs.
    Well done simply Amazing

Directions


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.

Local attractions

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.

Must see

  • Chester Castle (12.1 miles)
  • Cheshire Military Museum (12.1 miles)
  • Chester Cathedral (12.5 miles)
