Set on a lovely large elevated plot with a large decked area with rattan furniture and a beautiful enclosed wildlife friendly garden with bird feeders.
Aberdunant Hall Holiday Park in North Wales is nestled in a beautiful countryside setting, surrounded by over 200 acres of ancient woodlands with babbling streams, waterfalls and wonderful woodland walks, it's easy to see why this lovely peaceful site is one of the leading holiday destinations in Wales. The site lies within the Snowdonia National Park and is perfect for couples looking for a peaceful relaxing break away or families looking for adventure and those wanting to explore the amazing mountains/hills and the great variety of walks. But it's not just stunning scenery, climbing mountains and wonderful walks this place has to offer, there are also some lovely coves and beaches and gorgeous villages with unique shops and cafes.
We stayed at the site in July 2018 and from the moment we arrived we instantly fell in love with the site and the beautiful area, we felt very relaxed and we really enjoyed our stay so much that by the end of that week we had decided we would like to buy our own holiday home there, we just didn't want to leave!
We only hire out for a short time due to wanting to spend time at our Happy Place ourselves, please check our availability calendar. It's mainly school Holidays but we may on the odd occasion accept a Mon to Fri booking off peak times so please ask for info.
We do not offer weekend hire I'm afraid.
Squirrels Retreat is our lovely modern Swift Biarritz caravan. There is gas central heating and it's double glazed with a semi separate spacious lounge with comfortable L-shaped fitted seating, a LCD SMART TV, a blu-ray DVD player and an Amazon smart speaker with Alexa. We also leave a good selection of dvds, board games and books for you to use. Leading off from the lounge area is a very impressive well equipped Kitchen with full size cooker, integrated fridge and separate freezer, slow cooker, sandwich maker, a kettle, toaster and a microwave. The main family bathroom has a shower, hand basin and a mirror with light and electric shaver point then there is a separate toilet and hand basin. The master bedroom has a double bed and to add extra comfort it also has a memory foam mattress topper, there are overhead cupboards, wardrobes and draws with a vanity area with mirror and stool, we also supply an hairdryer. Bedroom 2 : Twin beds, wardrobe, over head cupboards and a T.V dvd combi. There is a further twin bedroom with wardrobe and cupboards. All beds have pillow and mattress protectors. We supply tea towels/hand towels and the beds are made up ready for your arrival, so all you have to do is unpack and enjoy your stay.
The patio doors from the lounge area lead out onto a large enclosed decked area where you will find a variety of seating options, we have a couple of rattan patio table's & chairs, and a storage bench. This area is perfect for sitting out watching the great variety of birds that visit our bird table's ..... but watch out for those cheeky squirrels! There is also a large enclosed garden which we have designed with relaxation in mind and to also encourage the wildlife. We have planted the garden up with bee and butterfly friendly plants and put up a couple of nest boxes and bird feeders, it's very relaxing sitting out on the decking in the morning enjoying breakfast while listening to the bird song! There is also a storage bench and a small shed with children's buckets and spades etc and you have a designated parking bay next to the caravan.
We don't use a cleaning company but clean and prepare our own caravan, we like to make sure everything is how it should be when our guests arrive to start their holiday.

We're just back from a great week at Squirrels' Retreat, which we booked relatively late due to moving home. This is one of the best caravans we have stayed in: it is clean and well- appointed with everything you would need away from home. The garden is fantastic: we kept a diary of all the species of birds we identified on the feeders, as there were so many! (also bats and owls at night). The woodland setting of the holiday park is great - and we highly recommend the food at the hotel restaurant. The location is perfect for everything that the local area has to offer: we spent time on the beach, walked through forests, visited some of the local villages and generally relaxed (so lucky with the the weather!). Highly recommended!

We cannot fault this beautiful holiday home, from the moment we arrived we were welcomed by a lovely welcome basket and an immaculate Caravan. We were so impressed with the facilities, nothing had been left out. We had amazing weather and spent many a hour on the patio watching the birds and squirrels flitting past. My 9 year old daughter and I enjoyed exploring the small but very interesting and 'secret' garden, it was amazing. The location was perfect for us, we enjoyed exploring the woodland walks and play area and was lovely to have a meal in the main restaurant and drinks in the outside area, so lovely. Very close to Port Merrion and 'Gypsy Wood' - which is ideal for families with young children. Dawn and Mark have been very helpful to the run up to the holiday and beyond, would highly recommend this holiday home, I cannot wait to return!!

From the moment we arrived at squirrels retreat we knew we were going to have a wonderful relaxing time, which is just what we needed. The caravan is so well equipped and very comfortable, the garden is beautiful and we couldn't believe how many birds visited the bird feeders, they were a delight to sit and watch while sitting outside on the decking, we wish we had booked longer! Already looking forward to book again for next year.

We have just returned from a fantastic long weekend at Squirrels retreat! What a stunning place! The caravan is immaculately clean and has everything you could possibly need for a great holiday. Even if it’s raining there are so many books and toys that it’s impossible to get bored. All the furnishings are like new and it has modern comforts like a new smart TV and coffee machine. There is a huge decking area around the side and front which leads down to the most beautiful garden. Whilst we were there the site manageress was showing around some potential buyers and used this garden as the showcase! It’s that pretty!!! The site is set in woodland so you have some nice short walks on your doorstep! Its around 15 mins from historic Beddgelert where you’ll find shops, pubs cafes, the famous Gelerts grave etc and the start of several lovely walking trails.

Absolutely beautiful, well looked after caravan with its very own magical garden set in the most wonderful caravan park! Home from home! We have stayed in a few caravans over the last few years and this is the best we have stayed in! Fantastic for children. We didn't want to leave! We can't wait to come back! Thank you ????
Thank You Joanne for your wonderful feedback, we are so pleased that you and the family really enjoyed your stay at Squirrels Retreat. We have tried to give the caravan a home from home feel with little added touches to make it that little bit special. The outdoor space was very important to us and I have enjoyed designing the garden and putting things in place to help to encourage the wildlife, and I agree with you it does feel like a magical place. Thank You for leaving Squirrels Retreat so clean and tidy and we would love to welcome you back in the future.
