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

Bryn Dwr Camping Pods is a gorgeous site with just two well-maintained pods snuggled in dappled shade 50 yards from the Offa's Dyke path on the banks of the River Alyn, both with their own deck extending out over the water.

The pods have their own lighting and heating, with showers, toilets and dishwashing facilities just a short stroll away in the main house. There’s plenty of parking and safe storage for bikes.

Please note

As we are in the heart of the countryside and beside the river it is advisable to bring a torch, wellies and warm clothing for the evening.

Fantastic location to spend a few days. Pods are warm and spacious. 05/06/2018

    Beautiful river side setting. Very quiet and peaceful. Excellent location to explore surrounding areas.
    Julie is very helpful and friendly. Nothing was any trouble. Yes it did feel strange at first using her house but it was better than a cold outdoor toilet and shower block. And for the amount of time it takes to use the bathroom or wash your pots it's not really an issue.

    Great location. Traffic free. Perfect stream for hours of child-friendly fun. Very friendly people. There for 4 days and hardly left the site as children were so engrossed in adventuring up and down the stream.
    Only 2 pods on site so very quiet and secluded.

Just a Beautiful location. 08/05/2018

    we loved the idyllic location at the side of a shallow river, lovely , well maintained and carpeted pods with large decking area, tables and chairs etc..
    Tow pods set at the back of a large garden and a communal fire pit area with benches. This is real glamping! you have use of the toilet and kitchen in the main house, which i thought would be odd, but it was fine. was made to feel very comfortable.

    Pods were nice and warm, in fact to warm at bedtime had to turn heater down, haha! Up at the house the Bathroom was warm and everything worked well. We were walking the offas dyke and got wet feet, they had a room to dry things out, perfect, better than camping.

    Everything was fab from the minute we got there. I had read reviews befor arrival and I've got to say there's some very picky people out there!!! The kitchen and bathroom facilities are shared with the owner but I must say I'd prefer it that way. A nice warm house to shower, change and eat in, what more could u ask for staying in a pod? Well we had the best time and Julie couldn't have done enough to make that happen, can't wait to return 😃😃😃

    Nothing whatsoever 😃

    Pod was great - just a floor with heater and light but that’s all we needed. Nice and clean and warm. Setting was very nice next to river. Julie was very friendly and helpful and communications were excellent.

    Disliked: 

    Separate toilets & shower block would have been nice. Felt like we were imposing using toilet & shower in the house.

    A beautiful setting for a one night stay. Julie called the day before to give us an insight. On arrival two beautiful pods. Use of bathroom and facilities within the house. Would highly recommend for a couple's short break if exploring the Welsh countryside.

Local attractions

Bryn Dwr is in the village of Llandegla, with lots of activities right on the doorstep, 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, 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, whose 110 acres are home to thousands of animals (and if it’s raining, you can always take the monorail tour).

Nearby Llangollen is lively even outside of Eisteddfod season, and well worth a visit too: daytrippers can take a short chug through the fresh green hills on the steam railway, or go for an old school narrowboat ride, pulled by a horse.
