Spacious decking

General

  • Scenic site steps away from the Offa's Dyke path
  • Pods on the bank of the River Alyn
  • An hour from Snowdonia with many activities close by

Walks on the Offa’s Dyke Path, mountain bike rides in the Clwydian Range Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty… bed down at Bryn Dwr Pods, in the village of Llandegla, for easy access to both.

This gorgeous little north Wales glamping site (little indeed, with just a couple of pods…) is in a fab location just 50 yards from the Offa’s Dyke Path and on the banks of the River Alyn, best viewed with drink in hand from the pod’s decked area, which extends out over the water. A mountain bike centre is a couple of miles away, and folk who choose to pedal their way around the area can stash their bikes safely on site.

When not walking or pedalling, you might like to consider trips to Chester Zoo or to roam around local towns including Ruthin (15 minutes away by car, and also the place for your supermarket supplies), Llangollen and Wrexham.

If you fancy an alfresco evening, the folk here are very happy to you to light up a barbie or snuggle up with drinks by the firepit; a pub is 10 minutes’ walk away if you’d rather cosy up there. Back at base, the pods too are kept cosy with their own heating and lighting; showers, toilets and a washing-up area are a short stroll away in the main house.

Please note

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

As the site is rural and beside the river it is advisable to bring a torch, wellies and warm clothing for the evening.

    Stayed in the pod for one night with my husband and 16 year old daughter. We loved it! Julie gave us a great welcome. We would love to return when the sun is shining. Lovely setting right next to the river with your own veranda with picnic table and chairs. Thanks Julie,

    Great Location & very peaceful in the bottom of the village.
    Rode our mountain bikes in the forest in the day, then called for a pint in the crown before heading down to camping pods which were very well insulated & warm for a late November night.
    Sat outside with the fire pit having a beer & food.

    Julie was very fantastic & locked our bikes away safely.

Perfectly idyllic location and a truly lovely getaway. 20/11/2018

    Perfectly idyllic location. The stream right next to the cabin was the dream soundtrack to early morning coffee in the foggy hills. It was lovely to be on such a small site, with just one other cabin, and no tents. With the other cabin empty, we had the place to ourselves - our own private getaway. The owner was really lovely and helpful, with lots of really great advice, suggestions and pointers, even making a dinner reservation for us at the pub upon our arrival. It was a little strange to have to go into the owner's own house to use the amenities, but they were so accommodating, and we didn't really bump into them, so it didn't feel like a problem at all, and when it was particularly cold, it was great to be able to sit for a few minutes in the warm, rustic kitchen, make a cup of tea, and just take a cosy pew while the cabin warmed up. It was nice, after a shower, to not have to worry about freezing your damp self on the sprint back to the cabin, because there was a full proper bathroom in which to bathe, leisurely dry off in the warmth and get properly dry and dressed before heading back, hot drink in hand. No worrying about your clothes getting wet, either, seeing as it wasn't a cubicle. It was our puppy's first time away, and our first visit to the area, and it couldn't have gone more smoothly. We're already planning our next trip, and to bring friends, and we've only been home 5 minutes.

    Disliked: 

    I suppose the only real change I would make is to have wifi access, but that ended up not being too much of a problem, as we just downloaded some telly when we had wifi elsewhere, though if we'd have stayed any longer, or needed to stay connected to work or family, I think it would have become frustrating, as the signal isn't good enough to stream anything and barely keeps up with Facebook. For an off-season stay (mid-November), £50/night is a bit on the expensive side, but I don't feel it was a waste of money.

    Ideal for walkers on the Offa's Dyke path being literally few metres off the trail, Bryn Dawr is cosy even in November when I stayed.
    Julie, the hostess, is very helpful with a pre- visit call to ask approx time of arrival.
    Plus when you do arrive there's local information, use of the bathroom and kitchen, tea & coffee, etc, and overall I came away with an impression of an organised and well-run place. Well recommended.
    Incidentally, don't forget the community shop next door: the staff in there are great and genuinely interested in visitors.

    I'd have to be picky and I don't do that!

    We had a wonderful stay at Bryn Dwr pods. The location was beautiful and fantastic for our dog, the pod was clean and comfortable with an effective heater that kept us nice and warm, and the fire pit was amazing! Julie was friendly and helpful. There is also a nice pub down the road! We will definitely visit again.

    There was nothing we didn’t like, but a bit more lighting might be good as it did get very dark at night :)

    Nice little retreat for those needing a warm dry alternative to camping in a tent. Access to a fire pit, plenty of wood available to buy cheaply.
    Owner allows use of their bathroom, shower and kitchen.

    Very accommodating and a nice quiet place to relax between the mountain bike riding we did at Llandegla.

    We had strong 4g mobile signal too.

    Fantastic stay with family had 2 adults 2 baby’s and a large dog all fitted inside fine toilet and shower facilities are shared with the owners and are inside the main house just a short walk from pods. Best take something to cook on for yourself as the kitchen facilities although you have acess you can only use the kettle and microwave. The pods are very clean with a heater and lighting. recommend taking a multi plug with you.
    Owners are lovely

    The pods where perfect and in a lovely location and surrounding. My son loved the lake, and there was hours of fun to be had in there. I also had my four month old with us. Was a little worried about his first time in the outdoors camping etc. This location took all that worry away. The use of the kitchen meant I could clean/sterile/ and make bottles with no trouble. Julie was so helpful and nothing was to much trouble. She sorted reservations at the nearest pub for us for tea & give us lots of recommendations for local attractions which filled are weekend with tons of family fun & memories. We will certainly be returning

Local attractions

Bryn Dwr is in the village of Llandegla, with lots of activities close by, including stunning walks along the Offa’s Dyke Path, clay pigeon shooting, mountain biking, canoeing and fly fishing. At the nearby bird gardens in Pen-Y-Ffrith (10 minutes’ drive), you can watch the birdies while you meander among woodland streams, pools of trout, waterfalls and a lake and goggle at the lovely views of the Welsh landscape.

It’s an easy trip from here to the brilliant Chester Zoo (35 minutes), whose 110 acres are home to thousands of animals. If little legs won’t cope with getting around it all, take a ride on the monorail or sail through the islands on a boat trip.

Nearby Llangollen (20 minutes) is at its liveliest in Eisteddfod season, when the town is packed with musicians and dancers from around the world. It’s well worth a visit at other times too: daytrippers can take a short chug through the hills on the steam railway, or go for an old-school narrowboat ride, pulled by a horse.

  • Cheshire Military Museum (15.5 miles)
