PLANS have been put forward to create a 'private and secluded' glamping experience for couples and honeymooners on Llandudno's Great Orme.

The plans have been submitted to Conwy County Borough Council by applicant Anne Roberts. The agent is Glenn McGill of MD2 Consulting.

The plans, earmarked for land at Hafan y Gogarth (Haven of the Orme) at The Villa, Tyn y Coed Road, Great Orme, involve the change of use of part of a property to provide a single holiday unit 'iglu hut'.

Proposals also include a sauna hut with barbecue and hot tub on an area of timber decking.

A Design and Access statement into the plans state: "The development is required to supplement the existing Bed and Breakfast business at the main house, thereby proposing to boost the tourist potential and economy in this location.

"It is a unique glamping experience designed for two guests - e.g couple, honeymooners etc, with exclusive access to self-contained services and facilities on a small, secluded site."

The site is 'secluded' with the confines of a lower garden.

"This is enclosed by the steeper terrain surrounding," the document added.

"It is currently a flat, lawned area with some small trees and shrubs around the perimeter."

The dimensions of the proposed iglu hut are described as 'modest'; 8.68m long x 2.3m wide and 2.36m high.

The statement added: "The design of the iglu hut is unique, combining the centuries-old shingle technology with modern knowledge and craftwork.

"The well-conceived structure can easily be transported to the site are in common use in Nordic countries in particular.

"They are particularly well insulated and therefore require modest levels of heat when used in winter months.

"The associated infrastructure comprises of a sauna, which is contained in a small well-crafted timber hut adjacent to the pod. This is mounted on a timber deck in the centre of which a small sauna is proposed."

The site is off Tyn-y-Coed road on to the driveway of the main house. There is existing off-road car parking facilities for at least four cars.

The statement concludes: "We have taken great care to ensure that this proposal will deliver a high-quality single holiday unit and ancillary infrastructure to sustain it in an secluded and private location which is out of view.

"In addition, the proposal has been designed with sustainability in mind."
