- Peaceful handmade glamping pods on the Llŷn Peninsula
- Five minutes' drive from Aberdaron beach; half an hour from Pwllheli
- Dog-friendly pods with ensuite shower room and woodburning stove
Peaceful and perfectly placed for peninsula pottering – Pencaerau Pods is a smart Gwynedd glamping site almost at the western tip of the Llŷn Peninsula, half an hour's drive from Pwllheli.
Aim for this amiable site five minutes' drive from Aberdaron to bed down in a handmade wooden pod that’s been kitted out with lots of handy features, including a woodburning stove to keep the place cosy and a coolbox to keep your eats fresh. There's also an ensuite toilet and shower room, so no dashing around in your nightie or jimjams here (unless you really want to…)
The pods have no mains electricity attached to them, but all come with a gas hob for cooking and a USB charging point to keep your gadgets going (phew).
A private outdoor area is outside each pod, each with a sizeable outdoor table on which to serve up your barbecued dinner or your fish and chips; acquire the necessaries for either spread in Aberdaron. It’s also a mighty fine place to pour out a drink or two and chill while the small sorts scramble about at the little play area (right by the pod so you can safely spy on them).
Prise your good self away from the pod to poke about on the peninsula, scooting down to Aberdaron for beach days and boat trips to Bardsey Island or aiming east for more beaches, National Trust visits and many a day of cracking coastal walk.

It's the beaches that draw most folk to this part of the world – if that's the case for your good self, take a tour starting on the sands at Aberdaron or hauling your surfboard to Porth Neigwl (aka Hell’s Mouth, 20 minutes' drive). The squeaky sands (yes, really) of Whistling Sands are 15 minutes' drive away, and Porthdinllaen is 25 minutes away – worth the trip for a seaside drink in the famed Tŷ Coch Inn.
Various watersports centres are dotted along the coastline, particularly in Pwllheli (half an hour): kayaking, paddleboarding and windsurfing are all among the offerings here. To have a go at wakeboarding before you hit the waves, get over to Glasfryn Parc (35 minutes’ drive), where there’s also go-karting, archery and other kid-friendly antics.
Looking for laidback days? Take your binoculars for some birdwatching at Porth Meudwy (15 minutes) or head to Plas yn Rhiw (10 minutes) for a walk that takes in the National Trust manor house and gardens before heading off in search of a neolithic burial chamber.
