rustic rural retreat
Update 19th December 2020
We are very sorry and sad but due to a pan Wales Covid 19 lockdown we are closed for business until further notice.
Here's to 2021 being a good year for all of us.
Stay safe, happy and well.
Do you believe in magic...
What you need to know about us...we believe in "Y pethau bychain"...the small things.
We are small.
We believe in paying attention to the small things (details)
And we hope that your small holiday with us leaves you with a big happy memory.
Check out the new video below showing all the personal thought and little touches which await our guests on their arrival to stay with us.
THE GREAT "STAYCATION" 2021
We are a small secluded site. Hidden away but within easy commute to sights, scenes and supplies !
Come on holiday with your "social bubble" - like a number of our guests are doing this year.
Ask us about the option and the cost to book the site.
We have found out about all the small things which we can do to ensure your peace of mind...
like new health and hygiene measures at our little reclusive, rural retreat. Check out our new menu item
As a small business we face the challenge of balancing the need to re-open safely, implementing the new extensive cleaning and sanitising requirements and giving our guests the confidence to plan ahead and book a holiday with us.
With this in mind, we have amended our booking terms to help our guests:
The deposit of 25% required at time of booking secures the booking.
The balance of payment for the booked holiday will not be due until 10 days before the holiday (in case of late changes to Covid restrictions)
No refunds, but complete flexibility to move bookings for up to 18 months from the holiday start date and therefore not lose any money.
We strongly recommend you take out travel insurance even if you're travelling from within the UK as our insurers will not cover refunds due to cancellation caused by this pandemic.
Wishing you and your family all the best

Welcome to Cwtch@Hafod
Hafod is the name of our home. And "Cwtch" is a lovely Welsh word for hug.
It's one of those words that every language has that simply loses meaning on translation.
It's more than a "hug" .
It means a heartfelt big squidgy full of love comforting hug.
The sense is that everything will be better after a "Cwtch".
It has restorative magical powers. Making you feel better. Loved. Cared for.
And that's what we hope you will feel after your stay with us.
A magical wildflower meadow guarded over by 3 magnificent slate standing stones. Surrounded by luscious green Welsh farmland, trees and hedges . A short walk away from the magnificent Menai Straits.
Close the high wooden green gates, with their perfect painted yellow Welsh poppies, and enjoy the beauty of nature. The birdsong. The peace. The tranquility. The "me or we" time
Come stay awhile ...
So what makes us memorable?
What could be more magical than spending time close to nature with family & friends.
Camping, but with the comforts of home, like memory foam mattress beds, underfloor heating and log burners to warm the chilly autumn and approaching winter evenings.
Two perfectly formed ensuite shepherd's huts "Nain and Taid" fully equipped with kitchettes and crockery/utensils. A middle hut Teulu with extended kitchen/dining (available on a first come first served basis).
And a brand new luxurious log cabin "Mam "available from November 2020. Complete with mud /utility room, kitchen, large living area, gas central heating and log burner, bathroom with steam shower and bath and two bedrooms sleeping 6. Two large decking areas and a hot tub complete the outdoor experience.
Slip on an extra layer of warm clothing and linger on outside to enjoy the dark sky, and on clear nights, the stars. Listening to the sounds of nature going to sleep for the night.
