Wild Woodland Bell Tents
We have three 5m bell tents available in our wildflower area surrounded by streams and blessed with sunset views across farmland to the Dee Estuary.
They are available during the summer and are kitted-out with up to 4 basic z-beds, cushions and rugs. The tents are ideal for a couple or a family of four, you can arrange the z-beds to suit your needs. There is a 2-night minimum stay, and a spacious communal fire circle is provided.
The bell-tents are off-grid with solar powered lights, and a battery light. We support Dark Skies Wales perfect for watching the sunsets or stargazing. You will need a torch to walk to the shower block in the dark. If you’re lucky you might see owls or bats and at dusk and dawn, hares and foxes. This is a very peaceful place to relax after a day at the seaside, exploring the Wales Coast Path, the Clwydian Range AONB or enjoying the open moorland of Halkyn mountain accessible on foot from site.
