Small, friendly site for touring vans and tents with spectacular views over Mawddach Estuary and direct access to Mawddach cycle trail. Winner of Go North Wales Best Camping, Glamping, Caravan Site 2016. Many walks directly from site (down a steep track)and campers can explore 40 acres of wild woodland and pasture leading to the estuary. We have simple but very clean washing facilities including two hot showers.

We have 2 separate areas for camping - please ensure you pick the one suitable for you to avoid disappointment!

For vans, smaller tents and those requiring electric hook ups our 10 pitch touring site is open from 1 March until 3 January. There are 8 hard standing pitches with electric hook ups, plus a few grass pitches for smaller tents with hook ups. The 2 Panorama pitches have the best views and there is a communal camp fire area. The showers have been completely refurbished and are free and we have added a covered washing up area with hot water and microwave for camper's use.

For tent campers, our lower tent camping fields are open from 1 May until 30 September - please see our website for details of whether this wilder area will suit you. There are no electric hook ups here and the pitches are few and far between to maintain the tranquil environment. Many have wonderful estuary views and there is more space than on the top part of the camp site. Each pitch has its own firepit and there is a compost loo on this level, with the main showers and loos at least 150 metres walk up a steep hill (much further for some pitches). There are 3 pitches you can park next to in this area, the rest are car free and wheelbarrows are provided to move your kit. There is no access for vans to park or pitch on the lower fields as the track is too steep.

We have four fully furnished yurts set within private woodland, some with stunning views and all have woodburning stoves (open March - December). There is a also a romantic "Caban" for two and a pre-erected bell tent for hire in July/August! We also have a four star B & B and 4 holiday cottages on the site.

Logs for sale for campfires and stoves, small licenced shop selling basics, local produce and gifts. Local ales and ciders.

For prices - please see our web site for details.

Approaching from Dolgellau direction:
- Turn off A470 Dolgellau bypass at junction signposted Tywyn/Fairbourne onto A493. We are exactly 4.5 miles from this point so set your milometer as we are easy to miss. You will see our entrance sign on the main road on the RIGHT. Do not turn down any lanes - if you pass the quarry and reach Arthog you have gone too far.

Approaching from coast/Tywyn direction
- Our entrance is directly on the A493 between Arthog and Dolgellau. Stay on A493 out of Arthog up hill. Pass quarry on right and about 1/4 mile on look for sign on left saying "Concealed entrance". That's us.
