The yurt is beautifully furnished with lovely linens, wall hangings, rugs and fairy lights creating a warm and magical space. It has a super comfy double bed and a double sofa/futon. Bedsheets, duvets and pillows are provided along with plenty of extra blankets but feel free to bring more with you.

Ty Crwn Bach Idris 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 on the coldest of winter nights. There is a brilliant little wood burning stove which heats up the space very quickly and is perfect for boiling the kettle for a warming cuppa. A basket of logs with firelighters and kindling are provided. Further packs of logs are available along with extra kindling and firelighters.

    A lovely yurt in a beautiful setting overlooking the forest. If you want a no frills, eco friendly trip with all the amenities you could need then this is the place. The hosts are welcoming and helpful and on hand if you need anything and, if not, leave you to enjoy the peace and quiet. - 27 Sep 2019

    ll expectations met and exceeded. Nathan could not enough to help and assist in any way possible. Stayed when it was freezing outside and the yurt was warm and comfortable all through the night. It's a space to truly unwind and connect with nature and yourself. Will definitely return and highly recommend. - 06 Dec 2020

    We had a fantastic and peaceful time in this spacious, magical, beautifully lit traditional yurt, away from it all in the midst of the North Welsh hills. Very friendly, accommodating hosts - 09 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

    Had an amazing time, yurt was beautiful and in a gorgeous location. Kitchen and bathroom facilities we’re spot on and very clean. Nathan and Shayne were just a message away if we needed anything.
    Had lots of fun playing fetch with the owner’s dogs. Lots of hiking routes around the area. Perfect to get away from it all for a few days. Would recommend to anyone wanting a bit of piece and quiet in the countryside. Will definitely be booking again 🙂

    Beautiful scenery, amazing yurt and a lovely couple.
    Enjoyed 2 nights in one of Shayne & Nathans yurts. Such a cool space and has everything you need for a chilled out and relaxing time. Kitchen and bathroom facilities are great too. Hot shower and full range cooker! Hope to stay again soon!

    If you want somewhere peaceful, beautiful and cosy this is it. We loved staying in the yurt, and getting back to basics cooking on the fire. There’s everything you need here and a fab place to just relax and chill out. Local towns with pubs and restaurants aren’t far and there’s great access to the A5 if you’re looking to visit Snowdonia National Park. - 07 May 2021

    The yurt at Shayne and Nathan's was absolutely lovely. A very authentic yurt in true Mongolian style.
    The kitchenette and toilet facilities were private, modern and very well equipped.
    True glamping with a sustainable twist, a real find and a beautiful location!

    Really friendly hosts and very helpful if needed but very relaxed and leave you to it otherwise. The yurts are really beautiful, as is the setting. The kitchen is well stocked with kitchenware to cook good meals for large groups. We bought logs from Nathan and made fires in the pits in the evenings. Has the amenities and comforts of a chalet stay but still feels like you’re camping in the wild! Great stay! - 11 Aug 2019

    We recently stayed for four nights with our 7 month old daughter and had a truly fantastic time. So nice to get away from everything and try something a little bit different.
    Plenty to do in the local area including some lovely river/ forest walks right on your doorstep. We spent an entire day just chilling in the yurt/ garden area and our little one clearly loved it. The yurt and surrounding grounds were a sensory haven for her with so many colours, lights, sounds etc... she got particularly excited when a chicken wandered into the yurt!

    Lovely hosts, any questions you have they will respond very quickly. Very beautiful location. If you are looking for a weekend away, off grid, away from the hustle bustle of general life then this yurt is definitely the place to go for a mini break. - 01 Dec 2019

    Such a fantastic place to stay, right in the middle of the countryside. An hour to Snowdon an hour to the coast... brilliant. The fire in the yurt kept the room toastie, the kitchen had everything we needed to cook a Christmas roast and the shower had lovely hot water. Highly recommend! - 28 Dec 2019

    We had a fantastic stay in the yurt, and can’t wait to return! Stunning, peaceful location on the edge of the forest, with waterfalls and hiking paths on your doorstep. The facilities are outstanding: a very well-equipped kitchen, delightful hot shower, wifi, and fire pits. Shayne was a warm host, giving us plenty of local advice. Thank you! - 26 Aug 2019

    Wow, what a lovely 4 days we have had at this beautiful yurt. Nathan and Shayne are great hosts very warm and friendly with lots of advice on local walks to hand. The yurt it’s self is truly amazing and it has its own little garden area with fire pit/bbq, chairs and table. The perfect place to come back to chill after a nice long walk and toast some marshmallows which went down a treat with our 6 year old son. I really can’t rate this pace enough.

    A great place to stay, the yurt was super warm despite the cold March weather and very spacious for 5 guests plus our dog.
    Great bathroom and kitchen facilities in addition to the yurt.
    Super walks available for our dog in the fields and woodland.
    Shayne was very friendly and even gave us some freshly laid eggs for breakfast.
    Very much enjoyed the stay

    Great location and the Yurt is really cool. Shayne and Nathan were really helpful and facilitated a late check in for us travelling up from Guildford.

    Everything you need is here and it is a great base to explore from to places like Llangollen and Betsy.

    Thanks for your hospitality.

    We were two familes of four that booked the two Yurts for a 3 night stay over the new year period, and we enjoyed every second of it! What an absolutly fanstastic place to stay. The House manual is very thorough but all common sensse, as seasoned campers weren't put off. There are a few things to think about as the site is completley off grid, but all things that are considerate to conserve enery and the environment.

    The Yurts are amazing and extremly compfortable and to wood stoves heat them up so quickly...

    We stayed for four nights with our 6 month old daughter. The Yurt looks great and is in a beautiful location. It is very comfortable and cosy even though it's pretty large. Shayne and Nathan were great hosts, very easy going, easy to talk to and helpful. Facilities were all good, kitchen was well equiped and comfy. - 21 Jun 2019

    Amazing stay at Nathan's yurt where you can be and live in direct contact and respect of nature. - 08 Sep 2019

    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.

    We had a lovely stay Shayne and Nathan’s Yurt! Even in October when it was wet and windy we could not have been warmer by the log fire!

    There are plenty of amenities to make your stay comfortable, like a hot shower, and a stove/sink area right outside your door, along with the dedicated kitchen area.

    There are beautiful views, lots of wildlife to see (and hear), and lovely areas of woodland to explore.

    There are a bunch of great places to visit such as local NT properties, the steam engine that goes through Corwen, and cafes and pubs. Just make sure...
