Based on customer reviews rating each site for aspects like location, value for money, quality of accommodation, activities and cleanliness, guests awarded almost two thirds of all UK sites listed on the platform in 2021 an overall score of 8/10 and above. 

Wales was one of the top three regions overall, with 208 sites scoring 9/10 or above and two locations featuring in the top 10 sites in the UK.

Moel Famau View was Wales’ most highly rated site in 2021 and placed fourth in the Top 10 of all UK sites.

As the name suggests, pretty views are what guests love, along with peace and privacy, at this secluded glamping pod in a fab Flintshire location 10 minutes’ walk from Rhosesmor.

There is just the one smart pod, so guests do not have to share the stunning views of the Clwydian range while luxuriating in the private hot tub in its own secluded pergola.

The pod has its own ensuite bathroom, a mini kitchen and a table for eating under cover, although there’s another outside for alfresco drinks and meals on fine days.

It’s a good idea to pack walking boots for a trip here - guests often like to climb the hill to find an Iron Age hill fort and take in some amazing 360-degree views, or head out into the many acres of open moorland around the site. 

Local pubs are 10 and 15 minutes’ walk away and pony treks and horse riding can be arranged nearby.

Prices start at £140 per night, based on two adults, with a minimum two-night stay.
