Check Availability Website


Mountain Lodge is situated on a hill top high above the historic Gwrych Castle, a 19th century Gothic folly in Abergele, North Wales. It is a truly unique setting surrounded by woodland and with panoramic views of the Carneddau mountain range in the Snowdonia National Park.

There are 3 very unusual places to stay at Mountain lodge. A Shepherd's Hut with a Stable and Barn and right down at the far end of another field in a secluded spot is a renovated Stone Hut. Now with a second hut Mountain Lodge can welcome up to 5 guests to stay in huts and 2 in the Stone Hut 200 metres away.

The Shepherd’s Hut is for ‘sleeping’ and the Stable and Barn is for ‘living’. The hut has a double bed, a small wood burner, storage drawers, folding table, chairs, sideboard and electric sockets. The renovated Stable is for your exclusive use and has a heated shower room with toilet, washbasin, wood burning stove with a large top plate which can be used for cooking or heating food, large sofa, kitchen area with fridge, kettle, cutlery, utensils etc. The fridge is stocked with fresh milk, water, butter, cheese and locally produced yoghurts. A door leads from the Stable into a Barn which has an open area for you to sit and enjoy the views. There is also a shepherd's hut sited next to the Stable and can be booked in addition to cater for larger parties.

The additional Shepherd's hut sleeps up to 3 people in a double bed with a single bunk above. It is insulated with sheep's wool and constructed with Douglas Fir wood. Inside is a small wood burning stove, pew seat/storage bench, fold down table, lighting but no electricity.

The Stone Hut is about 200 metres down a fairly narrow long field, up on a mound and in a very secluded spot surrounded by woods. It’s an extremely peaceful location and a brilliant place to just relax. It has two rooms, one is the bedroom which has a double bed and the other room is used for everything else, it has an unusual cast iron wood burner with two cooking rings, small sofa, table/chairs and kitchen area with cutlery, utensils etc. A solar panel provides lighting and the shower hut with instant hot water is at the end of the building. Everybody loves this shower, it is a truly refreshing experience! The compost loo is just round the corner from the hut. There is no electric so you will need to get the fire going to boil the kettle. An ‘Igloo’ coolbox is provided for keeping drinks, dairy products etc. chilled and ice packs are changed daily.

Mountain Lodge is blessed with an abundance of nature and wildlife, during the daytime you will see buzzards strolling the skies and at dusk you may see bats flying around in search of insects. A lake in the adjacent field is home to wild duck and geese and you will often hear the birds ‘chattering’ during the night.

With wonderful walks in Snowdonia and great beaches in Anglesey, it is conveniently located to explore the rich scenery and heritage of North Wales. For keen cyclists there are excellent off road and road trails including the coastal cycle path which is about 2 miles away.

The 3 nights we have just spent there were well worth the travel. Hosts could not have been more friendly or helpful. The Hut was so nice to sleep in and the view unbelievable. The barn area was rustic and beautiful. We would certainly recommend it for a beautiful, peaceful retreat. LOVED IT.

I just wanted to email and say thank you so much once again for your fantastically presented, warm, cosy and more than utterly enjoyable stone hut experience.

Matt and I both completely enjoyed our week at the end of your field and we'd still be there, we reckon, if we had the annual leave spare!

We truely look forward to being able to come and stay in this little bubble of luxury you have created at the top of your mountain (if there's any spaces left) in the future.
