For glamping holidays in Wales, Graig Wen has an amazing location set in 45 private acres of Snowdonia National Park near Barmouth and Dolgellau. Perfect for a romantic wild escape or family adventure – our yurts and bell tent are close to the coast and surrounded by breathtaking mountain and woodland scenery. Guests are blown away by the views of the Mawddach estuary and tranquility as well as the many activities and attractions nearby.
We are proud to have been recommended by media including The Guardian and Sunday Times and won awards for our green ethos and the Go Wales Best Glamping and Camping Site.
Idris yurt is available until early January. The rest of our yurts are in hibernation until early March 2019. We are taking bookings now for 2019 so please call if you cannot see accommodation available on line yet – we’re working on it!
We live on site and you will find a warm welcome with great advice about the best places to eat out and what not to miss so you can make the most of your short break. Order freshly baked croissants for breakfast and buy local craft beers from our small shop so you can relax around the camp fire.
Our glamping accommodation is dog friendly and it’s easy to bring your four legged friend with wonderful walks from the door step and plenty of dog friendly beaches, cafes and pubs.
Choose from different glamping experiences at Graig Wen depending on the time of year:
Glamping in the Glade
In a secret silver birch glade just off the beaten track from the main camp site you can stay in one of three yurts or – new for 2019 – a Shepherd’s Hut. The accommodation feels secluded although you will see your few fellow glampers through trees. You are close to private washing facilities just for glampers and can park by your accommodation.
Open March – October
For a wilder glamping adventure, Idris yurt and our bell tent are hidden away in the woods and meadows of tent camping fields. Super secluded and away from it all, you will have an eco-loo nearby and there’s new hot showers across the meadow. Parking is a few minutes walk/wheelbarrow away in the campers’ car park but when you check in / out we can give you a lift in our off road vehicle.
Open May – September
During the colder months, Idris pop-up yurt is sited on the upper part of the camp site complete with electricity and washing facilities practically en suite. You will have a woodburning stove as well as electricity for extra heat, lighting, and to make your morning cuppa. The small, sheltered site has big estuary views and your neighbours will be the odd out of season camper van or caravan.
Open March – April and October – December. Closed January and February.
Look at our Site Maps page and you will see the locations of the yurts marked on the Summer Map and Spring/Autumn maps.
Checking glamping availability
You can check availability for glamping and book online. You can book short breaks from Friday to Monday or Monday to Friday so you will need to search for availability to arrive on a Friday to stay for 3 nights or Monday to stay for 4 nights. We are sorry we do not offer one night stays, but can offer 2 night stays in the pop-up yurts and occasionally the other yurts outside of peak season. Keep an eye on our late deals or Facebook page for special offers!
