The Yurts and Facilities

We love to help you feel at home.

Greener Glamping provides self contained accommodation in two gorgeous cosy yurts.

Ty Crwn Bach Idris is a 4.5m yurt sleeping up to 4 with a fully equipped kitchen/diner in a 25m2 log cabin also containing a heated bathroom (with hot power shower and flushing toilet).

Ty Crwn Mawr is an authentic 6.5m Mongolian Ger (also known as a yurt) sleeping up to 7 with a wooden cabin next to it containing a well equipped kitchenette and bathroom (with a compost loo and hot shower).

Both yurts are heated by wood burning stoves. Each yurt also has its own outdoor and covered seating/dining area, fire pit/bowl and BBQ.

We may be 'off grid', but in terms of facilities you wouldn't know it! Plenty of hot water, a power shower, electricity in all the spaces and WiFi if required.

    Simply amazing The larger yurt is beautifully decorated, and with the surrounding area it is the perfect place to unwind. Easy to keep toasty and warm even for novices, and the hosts Nathan and Shayne are wonderful too. You will not regret staying here! - 01 May 2021

    I have been back to this location many times now to hold my 'Return To Nature' retreat with groups from London and other parts of the UK. The place never fails to deliver. Winter, Spring, Summer or Autumn the land is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to in the UK.

    Aside from the setting, it is always an absolute pleasure to see and catch up with Shayne and Nathan who are becoming dear friends and have infused the place with LOVE which is immediately felt by anyone present. I'll be back again a few more...

    We had an amazing time, the yurt is incredibly cozy, warm and homely (smells great too!)

    Me and my partner both argree that this is the nicest place we've stay so far, the entire atmosphere they've created there is beautiful.

    Both of Shayne and Nathan are very welcoming and a joy to be around, which meant at no point did we feel like we're 'just' hiring the yurt from them for a few days. It's honestly felt like we'd be there for a lot longer.

    We couldn't of asked for more.

    We had a wonderful time at the yurt! Shayne and Nathan are amazing friendly and accommodating hosts! The kids had a blast, loved the chickens, the sweet dogs and the open atmosphere! We bbq’ed, roasted marshmallows, meandered through the woods, chilled in the yurt! Thanks for a wonderful stay, great conversation and building such a lovely space! - 18 Apr 2021

    Upon arrival, we were greeted with the warmest of welcomes from Shayne and the two dogs. We were shown around the place and made to feel at home instantly. The location is beautiful and the place is a 10/10 and we would highly reccomened this place for all ages, who enjoy the outdoors and an area of outstanding natural scenery. Inside the Yurt is incredible and the small log burner keeps the place warm throughout the night along with a very comfy memory foam mattress!

    We give this place a ten out of ten, it ticked every box. We were not after a boozy party weekend, so if that’s what your after you would be wasting your time. Set up in a beautiful rural area of Wales, we stayed in one of the yurts with all the necessities we could need. The weather was miserable at times which all added to the experience, our own log burner inside to keep us warm after amazing walks in the hills and deep forests.
    We didnt see a soul on our walks, the site is literally the last...

    Lovely weekend stay, location was brilliant, amazing star gazing if you get a clear night! A truly special experience, from driving up the single way track entrance, you feel the city stress drift away! Wildlife all around and the sound of the stream was so relaxing. The yurt itself was perfect so well maintained and cosy with the log burner. Kitchen facility was good with everything you need. Hosts were welcoming, informative on the area and very friendly. Would highly recommend a stay here! - 11 Oct 2020

    Shayne and Nathan’s place is absolutely gorgeous! We had the comfiest stay! We absolutely loved how cozy the yurt was; the little fire and fairy lights just topped it off! Also, the location is breathtakingly stunning. It is very quiet and definitely at one with nature. I absolutely loved seeing all the wildlife outside the yurt, and I especially loved the two resident chickens that came to say hi every day The amenities were also great , definitely no faults with the amenities. Thank you for an amazing stay, the place you have is so precious. - 05 Oct 2020

    An absolutely wonderful stay. Hosts were fabulous, friendly with loads of local knowledge and were willing to help us with everything. The location is great. Very secluded, peaceful, with loads of walks through dense forests and rivers. The yurt itself was SPECTACULAR with great attention to detail, 10/10 cleanliness and facilities. What an experience!

    Nathan & Shayne were warm, welcoming hosts and their yurt on the forest is just magical! They provided me with all the info I needed before my stay and helped me with any questions that I had. The yurt and the wood cabin for cooking had all the essentials you would need when 'glamping' and the location itself is so serene and beautiful, I enjoyed trying out all the great walks on offer! The yurt experience is something everyone should try at least once - warming up next to the traditional wood burning stove was great! The setting is just... read more - 02 Oct 2020

    Faultless! Nathan gave us the warmest of welcomes and made us feel at home right away, which is such a relief when traveling with dogs. The space is absolutely stunning, well designed with lots of thoughtful touches like handmade rugs, mood lighting, extra blankets, logs for the fire etc. The whole trip was made completely stress free by the detailed instructions from detailed directions to log burner operations. The location is perfect for a quiet getaway surrounded by beautiful walks through the woods with some stunning views as recommended by the amazing hosts. We’ll definitely be returning soon! - 22 Sep 2020

    Shayne and Nathan's yurt is in a stunning location, so peaceful and quiet, a real treat to have no road noise! The hosts are on hand, but totally respectful of our privacy, we felt like we had our very own bit of Welsh mountain. The yurt , cabin and bathroom were all spotless and really well equipped, it was really easy to cook tasty meals both in the kitchen and on the fire outside. Loved it and hope to be back, thank you! - 18 Sep 2020

    Shayne and Nathan were excellent hosts and it was great to share their lifestyle for a few days. They looked after us very well, being readily available for advice and a chat, but never being obtrusive. The yurt itself was well furnished, with everything you could need for a comfortable stay. The location is excellent - peaceful, away from it all, with good views all around and lovely walks from the door. Visits from the friendly chickens and pheasants while barbecuing on the verandah were an added bonus. A great place to stay. - 11 Sep 2020

    Nathan and Shayne were such lovely hosts, we had a very peaceful and relaxing holiday in Cynwyd. We stayed for a week with our new baby and dog and we had everything we needed right on our doorstep. Stunning views, lovely walks and a gorgeous yurt to return to for cosy evenings and rainy days. Shayne and Nathan couldn’t have been more hospitable and the kitchenette was well stocked with everything we needed. We would love to go back one day, it was the perfect holiday for our new family. - 07 Sep 2020

    We had a great time at Shayne & Nathan's place. They made us feel very welcome with Nathan giving us top tips on things to do around the place. This included swimming in a waterfall about a 15min walk form the Yurts. Everything was clean and tidy and we had enough dishes and pans etc to cook for all 9 of us. We will be returning for sure. - 31 Aug 2020

    Shayne and Nathan were lovely hosts! They had everything prepared for us and gave brilliant instructions on how to get there, how to use everything etc. The yurt was so cosy and warm and we didn’t have the best of weather either. Lovely location up in the mountains, will definitely be staying again! - 28 Aug 2020

    It's a set in a beautiful area of Wales, remote but not too far away from key places to visit. Feels like you are away from it all there. Weather was bad during our stay, but still got to see thousands of stars one night. The big yurt can hold more people too, so great for a big family, and very cosy with the fire going x - 28 Aug 2020

    Shayne & Nathan’s yurt was perfect for our 5 day getaway. The location was brilliant and a great base for everywhere we wanted to visit. The yurt itself was lovely and just as you see in the pictures. Shower & Kitchen facilities were great for us as well. Although the yurt is on their property it always felt very private. We’ll definitely come back to stay again! - 14 Aug 2020

    You’ll love this place! Up on too of a hill, you can see the sunrise, sunset and moon rise. The changing weather systems make the scenery constantly different and interesting. The local village is super friendly as is the wee pub.

    There is plenty wild swimming around, loads of walks and wonderful nature.

    There is so much to do we ended up spending every day out the whole day but the yurt is huge and would allow for plenty of at home activities too.

    Shayne, Nathan and all the animals are welcoming, helpful and friendly.
