Glamping in Snowdonia & North Wales with Backtrack Camping

'BACKTRACK CAMPING' is offered at our peaceful smallholding in rural North Wales. We are located in a sheltered but slightly elevated position with views across farmland, woods and hills.

Sited in their own small field, we have just two 5 metre canvas bell tents available to rent for a maximum of four people in each tent. The tents are ideal for those wanting to go glamping in Snowdonia or North Wales.

Backtrack Camping is open from April to October.

The Facilities

Each tent is comfortably furnished for sleeping and seating, with one double futon and two singles and with all bed linen, blankets, etc provided.

A timbered shelter close to the tents gives a covered, spacious area for dining and relaxing. A camping stove and cutlery, crockery, pans etc. are provided. Or enjoy a pizza from the wood fired oven.

Guests have exclusive use of a shower room with basin, w.c. and instant hot water.

There is an outdoor fire site which has a cast iron bowl to get maximum efficiency from your blaze and can be used to heat water and for cooking.

Private parking is a short walk (approx 50 metres) from the tent. Paths link all of the facilities. Grass in the tent field is cropped short, trees and hedge rows line the boundaries.

  • An initial supply of logs

"Thank you so much, I think that was one of the most relaxing evenings of my life I really enjoyed myself and I will definitely be back. The attention to detail astonished me, it felt like every single little thing had been considered and planned for, the hot water bottles were a great idea and even the positioning of the lamps/ torches around made life easy as it got dark. I will be recommending you to all of my friends and family, the word glamping sort of offends me when I think of what you offer. This was camping in style!"

"Wow. What an amazing place, we are so pleased to have found you! Thank you Helen for all of your thoughtful touches, it has really made our stay. We searched high & low to find somewhere to escape to for a few days where we could camp in peace (not an easy ask in the summer hols!) and your beautiful spot exceeded all our expectations. The pizza oven was fantastic (& the shelter too when we had a spot of rain!) The children adored the sheep (thank you for the sheep treats!) and we couldn't ask for more: well equipped field kitchen, comfy beds, beautiful tents, stunning view, wonderful hosts….THANK YOU! We can't wait to come back soon."

"Where to begin? Wonderful sunny site and miraculously midge free. Amazing weather so we were reluctant to leave camp – much reading and lazing has been done, but also lovely walking, swimming and crazy zip-wiring. Helen, your welcome and care is a lesson to all holiday accommodation providers and we are so thankful. Too much to write here but: fantastic pizza oven, wonderful woodwork everywhere, spotless lovely bathroom, beds so warm and comfy and delightful sheep (clearly in heaven – I have never seen ewes playing like lambs before!) Thank you."

"Thank you so much for sharing your little bit of Welsh heaven with us. Too many times we tried to plan the day and lost ourselves with a cup of tea and the view. Helen & Keith you are fabulous hosts and everything we needed (and didn't know we did) is here. The pizza oven is amazing and we are now trying to work out how we can include one in our renovation plans at home! When the view is captured by the night there is plenty of time to lose ourselves by the fire. Perfect holiday – thank you doesn't cover it."

"What a wonderful place! We have had a fantastic time here – the facilities are excellent! Helen & Keith have been super hosts. We all thoroughly enjoyed gorge walking with Helen – it was the highlight of our holiday. We made pizzas but needed help to get the oven going! As always Helen & Keith were on hand to help out. Great site, excellent hosts, good weather & beautiful country."

"Thank you so much for THE PERFECT camping trip. We had so many plans but after the first few hours we ripped up the itinerary and spent the whole time here! Off home to sell our tent, can't go anywhere else from now on."
