A short trip over the border from Liverpool, North Wales features stunning beaches, castles, mountain ranges and more for visitors to explore. Even travelling through this scenic part of the UK by car or train is a pleasure, so it is no wonder that the glamping facilities are equally as charming.
North Wales Pods with Hot Tub – Get Inspired!
Cwt Celyn and Dôl y Mynydd in Conwy County Borough, North Wales
These idyllic handcrafted wooden cabins for up to two guests are nestled in wildflower gardens at the base of Snowdonia national park, with beautifully designed interiors featuring a king-sized bed, ensuite with electric shower, underfloor heating, small kitchen and a kettle.

Two Hoots and Ewe Two in Northop, North Wales
These two barrel shaped glamping pods with hot tubs are situated on a working arable farm, surrounded by fields of grazing sheep and cows, secluded from the hubbub of farm life, and providing a rural retreat from city life. These pods each sleep two in their double beds and feature small kitchens with utensils and crockery, a sofa and a dining area, an ensuite bathroom with a shower, and private terraces outside. Each pod has a private wood-fired hot tub for guests to enjoy.
The Hidden Meadow at Hafoty Gelynen in Corwen, North Wales
These uniquely shaped wooden glamping pods are reminiscent of a fairytale story, with a rustic modern aesthetic, the Orchard Pod sleeps two in a cosy cabin featuring twin beds, while the Woodland Pod sleeps four across one double bed and one set of bunk beds.
Both pods have ensuite bathrooms, covered kitchen areas, and wooden terraces including a BBQ, firepit, and wood-fired hot tub.
What to Do in North Wales
Naturally, with all the accommodation listed above being just a stone’s throw away from Snowdonia national park, the obvious attraction is the hill walking and mountain climbing in this stunning landscape – but the national park is also steeped in Arthurian legend, for those wishing to explore the wonders of nature with a mythical spin.
King Arthur’s legendary sword, Excalibur, is said to be buried in at least three separate lakes in the Snowdonia national park alone. Luckily for intrepid explorers, Llyn Llydaw, Ogwen and Dinas are all closely situated, so it is possible to visit all three, just to be on the safe side.
To continue the royal theme, North Wales features two impressive examples of medieval architecture: Conwy Castle and Caenarfon Castle – and Caenarfon is considered one of the greatest remaining buildings from the Middle Ages. Both Conwy and Caenarfon boast beautiful beaches, with many waterfront cafes and restaurants.
For some more light-hearted fun for all ages, deep in the Conwy valley lies Zip World, home to the only alpine rollercoaster in the UK along with zipline and aerial treetop adventures.
Finally, it wouldn’t be a trip to Wales without visiting Portmeirion to the west of Snowdonia national park. This tourist destination was designed in 1925 by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis and constructed by 1975 to emulate an Italian renaissance-style village. It is now managed by a charitable trust.
