Come and experience the fun and freedom of an off-grid stay in one of our luxury bell tents and our vintage gypsy caravan. We've got everything you need for a hassle-free, child and pet-friendly break so you can just arrive and start your holiday straight away. With real beds, hot showers, well-equipped kitchens and immaculately clean composting toilets, we promise you the perfect balance between all your home comforts, and a wild outdoor adventure. All our spaces come with their own campfires so you can hone your fire lighting skills - just don't forget the marshmallows!

got a question?

How many beds are there in each bell tent?

There is a double and two single beds tents in each tent, and we can fold up any beds you are not using into sofas to give you more space. You also have the option of adding a single inflatable mattress with bedding and linen at no extra cost to sleep a maximum of five people. We also have travel cots available if you need them.

Is the accommodation heated?

Yes, there is a log burner in each of the tents and the gypsy caravan and we supply a basket of logs, kindling and firelighters to get you started. We also supply bags of logs if you need any extra at just £6 a bag.

Do you provide toilet paper?

Yes, our composting toilets all come with an ample supply of recycled toilet paper which can be composted too!

Is there somewhere I can charge my phone?

Yes, we supply solar powered battery packs which you can use to charge your phone. You just need to bring your regular USB cable.

What about sockets for hair dryers?

We are a fully off-grid site which means there are no electric sockets for hair dryers or other appliances. Sorry!

Can I charge my electric car?

Yes, we are lucky enough to be just five minutes away from the Rhug Estate Shop which has eight ultra-rapid 120kW InstaVolt chargers.

How far away are you from the beach and the Snowdonia National Park?

We are blessed with some of the most beautiful beaches in the world here in North Wales. In under an hour you can be in Conwy, Colwyn Bay or Llandudno, all traditional seaside resorts. Or just a little further is the stunning coastline of Harlech, the Llyn Peninsula and Ynys Mon | Anglesey. We are just 20 minutes from the National Park with great access to Llyn Tegid | Bala Lake and the Snowdonia mountain range.

Do you provide regular camping for tents, caravans and campervans?

No, I'm afraid we are not set up for camping, although if you are booking the whole site we can accommodate campervans and your own tents upon request. We don't have any hook ups.

Can I bring my dogs?

Yes of course, we love having dogs to stay at The Forge! We just ask that you keep them under close control and clean up after them so everyone gets to enjoy our space.

What happens if the weather is wet?

We have undercover kitchen areas for all the tents, plus a large communal cabin with a log burner, sofas and bean bags where you are welcome to hang out if the weather isn't great.

Do you have hot tubs?

No, as we are off-grid site and focused on trying to be as sustainable as possible we don't have hot tubs on site. We can recommend several local spas which provide them, or we can also highly recommend the River Dee if you are looking for some exhilaration and relaxation!
