This year in Bala we offer a new and wonderfully cosy Shepherds Hut. The view and aspect makes this site unique and magically private for the perfect getaway break. Tyn-y-fron is a 13 acre smallholding in the most beautiful setting .About halfway between Bala and Corwen we are half a mile from the road offering seclusion with the added benefit that we are not too hard to find. We have hens, cats , a Jack Russell and a Lurcher. Our other neighbours include a wonderful selection of wildlife, including squirrels, foxes, hedgehogs and assorted small mammals. They may be hard to spot, but they will be watching you! You will see soaring buzzards regularly, occasional red kite and other hawks, and a fine selection of song birds, including green woodpecker, jays and more besides. In short ...This year in Bala we offer a new and wonderfully cosy Shepherds Hut. The view and aspect makes this site unique and magically private for the perfect getaway break.

In short a Tyn-y-fron holiday offers the romance of a back-to-nature experience which you will remember for years to come. Tyn-y-fron Shepherds Hut is a complete escape from the busy outside world. Set alone in a sheltered corner of our smallholding overlooking the River Dee. Your only neighbours are sheep or chickens. The hut consists of a comfy double bed, dining area, woodburning stove and the use of adjacent well equiped camp kitchen and toilet and shower block. A small camp stove provides facilities for drink making inside hut. TV mounted on wall. We provide bedding and your first supply of wood for the stove.We will sell you wood by the sack as required . All you need to bring is yourselves. Although the hut does not have a bathroom inside it does have a very good shower block almost adjacent plus a well equiped camp kitchen with everything you need for camp cooking. There is a designated bonfire site if you prefer the more pioneering approach. Sitting area both outside the kitchen or in the Huts private garden area or in the Hut itself if you wish. You are only one mile from a very good pub with meals if you feel a little on the lazy side or meals can be provided with prior notice. Small dogs are allowedMore

Oh thank you so much for that. We are trying hard to slightly lower a tree that is in direct line with the arial so hopefully next year reception will be better. However, as you say, you can't really beat the silence at night and...More

The hut is up a hill surrounded by acres of forest. It's close to a pub which has more than enough options for a couple of nights food. There is a 'few' sheep. It's brilliant! Dee and Peter welcomed us as we arrived, told us...More

Thank you for your review. We are sorry that the bed was a tiny bit short but you are quite tall! However, glad you had a lovely time.
