Motorhome and glamping investment as North Wales campsite…
A Conwy holiday park has invested in luxury glamping and extra motorhome pitches. Tan y Bryn Glamping has spent in excess of £300,000 on improving facilities at the small working farm in Bryn Pydew, near Llandudno Junction.
Five glamping pods have been built, each with its own hot tub and fire pit. In addition five new hardstanding motorhome pitches have been created as the campervan holiday sector booms.
Owners Jenny and Darren Jarvis said the revamp is their way of maintaining North Wales’s status as “one of the most beautiful and sought-after holiday destinations in the UK”. Jenny said: “We’re thrilled to launch our new luxury glamping pods on Good Friday.

“It really does mark the dawn of a new era, and it means so much to us to be able to showcase just how stunning North Wales is as a location destination. It fills us with so much joy and pride to see lots of tourists back already, making the most of the coast. Interestingly, this year has seen more of an increase in couples who are looking for a special romantic retreat on the coast – with a bit of luxury, of course.

“For us, these luxury glamping pods mark the beginning of another fantastic summer. We can’t deny the impact that Covid has had on the tourism sector nationwide, but our goal now is to move forward, keep our guests at the forefront of everything we do, and take what learnings we can in terms of holiday trends and what’s important to our customers, and implement those changes.”
The dedicated duo took over the caravan park in 2019. Darren added: “Our investment in Tan y Bryn is about enhancing tourism for the North Wales area, bringing our visitors closer to nature, and helping them enjoy the incredible countryside and surrounding attractions.
“We are hoping for a busy summer, with many of our existing customers trying out our new amenities such as the brand-new shared shower and kitchen facilities that our motorhome guests use. But we wanted to go beyond that, and provide what our guests wanted to an extremely high and special standard – private facilities, due to concerns that were brought to the forefront during the pandemic.
“This is why it was crucial for us to ensure that each luxury glamping pod was fitted with its own bathroom, kitchen facilities, TV, sofa bed, outside hot tub and fire pit, which really creates that sense of an ‘exclusive’ glamping experience. We also feel that lockdown has shown us that we need to provide private facilities to ensure the business can remain open in case of any future pandemics, and provide people with an escape during stressful times. So, we not only feel that our luxury glamping pods are in line with current market trends, but are fool-proof for future ones.”
