For my graduation from Bangor University, my partner and I decided to make it a long weekend affair. We searched through a lot of bed and breakfast places, Airbnb accommodation, camping spots and settled on giving ‘glamping’ a try.
We found a fantastic little site on the Isle of Anglesey called Brynteg Glamping at Lon Bryn Mair which was within a good travel distance from Bangor and attractions on Anglesey.
Booking the glamping pod was simple via PitchUp.com. The site allows you to pay a deposit with the remainder being requestioned 4 weeks before your arrival.
Getting to the site was easy, the directions were easy to follow (although you go down a small lane, so be careful at this point!) and the postcode was spot on for a Sat Nav. The owners have ensured you can tell where the site is via signs.
We booked for a pod that had 1 double bed, a single sofa/futon, ensuite (shower, sink and toilet), a small kitchen area (fridge, sink and kitchen equipment inc kettle) and a medium sized flat screen tv.
And the best bit… a fire-powered hot tub and gas-powered bbq!
The pods, of which there are several, face away from each other and the outdoor area has privacy screens. There is plenty of parking (one spot next to the pod and more at the end near the public toilets) for a car.
The owner, Sally, was there to greet us and gave us a very warm welcome. She took the time to speak to us about our journey and we met her lovely two dogs who follow her about. She explained all that we needed to know, especially about the hot tub and the tips/tricks to getting the best out of it before disappearing to collect some firewood for us.
We quickly set about admiring the glamping pod…
It was very spacious inside for two people; my other half is over 6ft in height and had no issue walking around the place and it’s rounded ceiling.
We found the pod let in a lot of natural light and the door windows had blinds which blocked out the sun really well. Overall, the place was warm (it does have underfloor heating but it wasn’t switched on), airy, open, very clean and aesthetically pleasing.
Noise wise? Well, there was none! It was so quiet! The owners don’t allow stag groups and, whilst children are welcome, it’s not too big a site to have a lot of them in the pods; plus we stayed during school time so that helped…
Nearby, after a short drive, you arrive at Benllech beach, a blue flagged beach with a cafe nearby. A Co-op and a Tesco Express, alongside a couple of chip shops, are within a short drive of the campsite.
We were really pleased with this accommodation. The attention to detail, cleanliness, location and facilities were exactly what we wanted. My OH can be a bit of a moaner/camping ‘snob’ but I didn’t hear a peep from him (except to moan about my clothing on the floor!) so this was a winner in my eyes!

The PitchUp Listings for Brynteg Glamping. I’m not getting paid to write this, I just think, because we had the best time there, that I’d like to share it with others! Highly recommended – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
