Description of Hafan Y Bugail
In Welsh “Hafan y Bugail” means “A Shepherd’s Haven” – and this indeed is a haven of tranquility in picturesque surroundings.
A glamping holiday with a difference! Come and stay in our beautifully restored Living Van.
This van was used by Highways Authority Road Roller drivers and towed behind a Steam Roller during the 1st half of the last century.
After months of restoration it is now ready for a new chapter.
Ideally positioned in a tranquil and picturesque valley on the outskirts of the historic village of LLANDDEWI BREFI leading up to the Elennydd Mountain Range.
