Experience life 'off-grid'....come glamping!
Ty Crwn Bach Idris is a very comfortable yurt with spectacular views which can easily accommodate four people. It has a double bed and a double sofa bed. It is beautifully furnished with lovely linens, wall hangings, rugs and fairy lights creating a warm and magical space.
The log cabin near the yurt contains a full kitchen (including gas cooker, electric fridge, toaster, sink with hot and cold water), dining area and shower room with power shower, flushing toilet and sink. If you'd like to experience real eco living then a compost loo could be made available.
There is a wood burning stove which heats up the space very quickly and is perfect for boiling the kettle for a warming cuppa or making a pan of tasty soup/stew. All pots/pans, crockery and cutlery, mugs and glasses are provided. We simply ask that you wash them before you leave.
The yurt is light and airy with a clear round glass opening window in the roof and a south facing stable door to help keep things cool on sunny days and hot summer nights. The floor and walls are insulated so it's toasty even in the coldest of winters.
There is also a BBQ and a fire pit. So hey....collect some wood from the forest and light a fire....you are glamping after all!!! The covered deck outside the yurt provides somewhere sheltered to sit and enjoy the BBQ or the fire pit, although there are grassy areas to use if you would prefer.
In keeping with the ethos of our home, we have tried to use reclaimed/recycled/up cycled materials wherever possible.
There are standard electrical sockets in the yurt and low energy lighting there and in the bathroom/kitchen which all run off renewable energy sources. So by staying in Ty Crwn Bach Idris you will be doing your bit to reduce pollution and carbon emissions.
The log cabin facilities are shared with the guests staying in our larger yurt about 30m away but screened by trees/bushes and with its own kitchen area, shower, seating area, fire pit etc. We may also use the cabin facilities very occasionally. If you would like to have a larger group come to stay, please check if the larger yurt is available. Exclusive use of the cabin facilities (or the whole site) is possible if you want total privacy. There would be extra costs associated with arranging this. Please see https://www.airbnb.co.uk/rooms/18817924 and contact us for further information.
Weather conditions: Please note that on the fairly infrequent occasions that the temperature drops below zero for more than a few of days the water supply to the cabin may start to freeze and we might then have to drain the system to prevent damage to pipes/fittings and the water heater. We have 'winterised' the plumbing but if the temperature seriously drops below zero for an extended period then there won't be much we can do. We will be able to supply water in containers for drinking, cooking and washing and the compost loo will still be fully functional. We are up at 400m so if there is heavy and persistent snowfall, access to the property from the village one mile away may only be possible on foot or in a 4x4 vehicle. It's all part of the adventure!!!
If you need assistance with anything just ask. We are here to help and glad to do so. :-)
Ty Crwn Bach Idris nestles in a forest high up above Cynwyd in the beautiful Berwyn Mountains, North Wales, midway between Bala and Llangollen, not far off the the A5 London to Holyhead road.
The property sits 400m up in the Cynwyd Forest, on the edge of the Dee Valley AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty). We are right on the North Berwyn Way walking route.
Whilst only a mile from the village there are no other properties nearby and the Berwyn Mountains extend to the North, East and South as you step outside. Brilliant for walking, hiking, mountain biking and just chilling with nature.
Bala lake is only 12 miles away and Snowdonia and the coast less than an hour. Manchester and Liverpool are under an hour and a half away.
The mountains of Snowdonia can be seen from the yurt with the Arans and Arenigs nearly on the doorstep and the Rhinogs in the distance. Walk 50m up the hill and you will see the top of Yr Wyddfa (Mt Snowdon) peaking of the hills in the distance. There's rock climbing of all types and all abilities near us in North Wales along with a good selection of indoor climbing walls.
The majestic River Dee flows through Cynwyd on its way to Chester and there is plenty of fishing in the area.
North Wales is world renowned for its fantastic mountain biking and the Llandegla Forest tracks are less than 25 minutes away. Coed-y-Brenin over near Betws y Coed is also close by.
If water sports are you thing you are well served with heaps of sailing, kayaking and canoeing within easy reach. We know world class coaches, instructors and outdoor pursuits organisations and can put you in touch with them if you want.
Surfing, kite-surfing, wind surfing, stand up paddle boarding can be found on the coast which is an easy drive away.
