Unique hide retreat with creature comforts and hot tub overlooking RSPB Wetlands Reserve in Gaerwen. Perfect to relax, enjoy activities and explore the best coast and countryside on Isle of Anglesey

Great location four miles from Llangefni and Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwyll-llantysiliogogogoch. Nearby you can visit the RSPB reserve, Anglesey Sea Zoo which is the largest aquarium in Wales, Newborough Nature Reserve with its forest, red squirrels, sand dunes and sandy beach or go wild windsurfing, kite-surfing, sailing and sea fishing at Rhosneigr or head to Beaumaris with its Castle, shops and eateries. Pop to Plas Newydd, the Amlwch Copper Kingdom, Maritime Museum lighthouse or Puffin Island. Visit the premier Motor Racing Circuit, go karting at Cartio Mon or take a steam train at Caernarfon. Explore the many footpaths and cycle routes in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and embrace the panoramic views. There is always something to see and do here. Easy access to Snowdonia National Park with attractions such as Bounce Below and Zip World.

Walk up the stone steps and amble down the path to the door opening on to the covered veranda with stunning views towards the RSPB Wetlands Reserve. On the veranda you will find table and chairs, plenty of space for your boots and the quirky cold store. This shepherds hut has been tastefully furnished with lounge/kitchen/dining/sleeping area with wood burner, comfy chairs and all the thoughtful little extras to enhance your stay. Enjoy a bite to eat at the breakfast bar or on the veranda. If you decide to eat in, cooking has never been so much fun inside and out, the kitchen area has Belfast sink and kettle. There is also a cool store to chill your drinks. For cosy nights in, light the stove, read a good book and plan your activities for your break. When it’s time to go to bed the creatively designed full size double bed is ready for a good nights sleep. In the morning take a leisurely shower in the en-suite shower and WC, dry off with soft towels and embrace the day ahead. There is extra living space on the enclosed veranda and down to the enclosed outdoor kitchen which has a 2 ring gas hob and running hot and cold water. Head to the shared games room for a game of snooker on the full size table, and this is also where you'll find a fridge available for your use. A washing machine is available upon request.

Outside the extended shepherds hut nestles in an idyllic spot with uninterrupted views down the garden, beyond the alpacas and towards the RSPB Wetlands Reserve. Relax in the wood-fired hot tub, now with an overhead cover, or around the firepit. Enjoy a BBQ on the camp fire, al fresco dining at the table and chairs or take cover in the outdoor kitchen and embrace the wild life and stunning views from sunrise to sunset, not forgetting this is the perfect spot for star gazing. There is parking for one car at the property and a lockable bike store if required. 1 dog welcome and must be kept on lead as next to a working farm with livestock.

Had a lovely stay, the only real issues were that it felt it needed a really good clean and there were no plug sockets available apart from away from the hut which wasnt very clear anywhere when booking. Otherwise it was very private even though it is on the property and in a beautiful location. We would stay again
