The Owner Says

Tommy is spacious with a proper double bed, 2 pull out single beds and woodburning stove of course. The modern style yurt is colourfully decorated and is named after Tommy Nutter, the Barmouth born tailor who dressed The Beatles and David Bowie and created Jack Nicholson’s costume for The Joker in Batman.
Tommy is sited in a sunny corner of a silver birch glass which is secluded from the rest of the camp site.  Nearby is our shepherd's hut and you will see glampers in 2 other yurts through the trees.  Tommy has an outdoor kitchen shelter fully kitted out with a 2 ring gas hob and all the utensils you will need for making meals.  There's is a picnic bench under the shelter for dining al fresco. The yurt is on a beautiful wooden base made by a local craftsman and there is bespoke furniture, floor rugs, warm Welsh tapestry blankets and sheep skins on the beds.
A compost loo and shower are shared with your fellow glampers.  Conventional loos and more hot showers are a short walk away and are shared with the rest of our small touring camp site.
Tommy is off grid and you will be drinking fresh Welsh spring water which is filtered from our well.  There is solar lighting and we give you a lantern to help you find your way around under starry skies as we are in the core of Snowdonia National Park Dark Skies reserve.  As well as the woodbunring stove inside the yurt, you have a firebowl outside for star-gazing around.
Access is easy as you can park one car right by the yurt. Just bring your own double bedding or sleeping bags, pillows, towels and food and enjoy a very special corner of Snowdonia National Park…

About Graig Wen

Suitable For

Tents, campervans, caravans, glampers, dogs, cyclists/mountain bikers, walkers – in fact it’s hard to think of anyone who wouldn’t enjoy Graig Wen.

Nearby

Cadair Idris (892 metres) - clambering up the mountain is a great local option and the Pony Path makes is family friendly.  Alternatively walk straight off the camp site along the stunning (and flat) waterside Mawddach Trail to the seaside treats of Barmouth. Go crabbing or visit Knickerbockers ice-cream parlour. As well as the cycle track along the estuary to the Fairbounre beach, there’s mountain-bike routes for all abilities, at nearby Coed-y-Brenin (01341 440747), around 5 miles north of Dolgellau. Head north to Llechwedd Slate Caverns where Zip World (01248 601444) is hugely popular. Over 8km of wires are strung throughout the mountains providing a truly unique areal experience. Slightly more theme park-like, King Arthur’s Labyrinth, on the A487 between Dolgellau and Machynlleth (01654 761584) is an attraction themed around ancient myths and legends. Every third Sunday of the month Dolgellau holds a Farmer's Market.

Food & Drink

The owners sell eggs, ice cream, marshmallows and breakfast hampers in high season (local bacon, sausages, bread, juice) for £30. Stock up on local produce and tasty treats at the Country Market on Thursday mornings, or the Farmer’s Market on the third Sunday of every month, both in Dolgellau. Down at Fairbourne, the unassuming Indiana Cuisine (01341250891) is a pleasant surprise. South Indian specialities are created with colour and flourish from fresh ingredients and traditional home recipes. Plenty of non-spicy options available. Good pub grub at The George III Hotel (01341 422525) 5 minutes drive or an hour's delightful walk along the estuary cycle trail. Locally produced lamb, beef and fish can be enjoyed outside in view of the estuary.
