The Owner Says

The small yurt is extremely cosy with woodburning stove, rugs, sheepskins and Welsh blankets. Outside you can enjoy the wonderful Snowdonia scenery of the hills and ancient woodland.  The campfire area outside makes the perfect spot for star gazing by night.  The yurt has lighting and we can charge up phones etc in reception.  The yurt is on decking in a private and tranquil space. We provide a basket of logs to get you going - more for sale on site. There's a 2 ring camping gas cooker and a full range of cooking pots and pans, plates, cutlery etc. There is a compost loo and shower practically en suite, with further flushing loos, hot showers and washing facilities a couple of minute's walk down a track on the touring camp site. Sockets and mirrors for hairdrying too!

Please note the Yurt is generally available for short break bookings from Friday to Monday for a minimum of 3 nights and from Monday to Friday for a minimum of 4 nights so you will need to search for availability accordingly.  Sometimes the yurt is available for 2 night bookings but usually only for last minute bookings and during October.

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.
