Reviewer: Spotter5 1 review from this member

This was our second camping trip and now we are hooked!

There are three different campgrounds, they only have electric in the caravan and family area but we wanted a view of the beach so went for the “Panoramic” campground.

The view was “Panoramic” and the beach was even better with interesting rock-pools at one end and the beautiful sandy beach at the other.

Nice quiet site with very friendly campers and plenty of space. The toilets and showers are in quite old portocabins, but the showers are lovely and hot with no time-limit and free! The toilets do feel very far away when it is raining, but in fairness we could have camped closer.

The weather was changeable like on our trip at the beginning of the month, but when the sun came out it made it worth putting up with the rain (not the best year to start camping). As we were newbies the warden let us know when the wind was picking up and explained the weather forecast that they display at the office (small caravan!), so we moved near to a wall on our third day and all was good.

The coast walk past the islands to Abersoc is lovely and we saw hundreds more rabbits. There are plenty of cafes and pubs for lunch but we went for good old fish and chips. While there we booked what turned out to be quite a wet fishing trip, but on the upside it did provided Mackerel for our disposable barby, and some great shots of inquisitive seals.

Our first camping trip was not to a coastal site. After visiting this great area I’m sure there’s a good chance we will be back and its likely that we will hunt out coastal sites from now on.

This site was a very nice place to spend a week so much to do nearby

The best site wardens anywhere

Nearly all the pitches are seasonal but they do cattery for some caravans but tents seem to be best for the best views some have cliff top views

No shop on site good electrics slow water for drinking

Elsan waist is very poor just a pipe in the ground could do better same for grey waist

Showers free and fantastic even if the port cabins are a bit tired

No hard standing but the ground was so well drained except for the path

Getting in and out was the worst we have seen so tight and timing is everything if you meet another coming out beware

The warden set off up the lane to keep the lane clear when we left so thanks for that

Very exposed site well you are right on the coast so take some straps for your awning just in case

The beach was great but quite a walk would say 10 mins from pitch to sand

Horse riding recommended and the welsh coastal path was fantastic

Very helpful and friendly staff made for a fantastic 2 week break. Excellent beach nearby and lovely coastal walks. The site was always clean, tidy and well kept.

The wash facilities although basic were nice and clean with good showers and free hot water. Washing up area ok but perhaps could do with a cover and bin for waste.

Lovely open pitches though some in the family field with electric hook ups are quite sloping and plenty of space for kids to play in, though having a young family a bit of a play area would be most welcome.

Overall a great campsite which I will definitely return to and very good value for money.

We have being visiting Abersoch for years now, but this was the first time we had stayed at Nant Y Big.

We were greeted by site warden Eifon, who is really helpful and a top guy. He pointed us in the right direction to the family field and told us to take our pick of the EHU pitches, great start.

The majority of the pitches are flat until you get up to the top end of the field where there is a slight slope, but we've camped on worse inclines.

The facilities are in portacabins, they are kept spotless and the showers are free. Pot wash is adjacent to one of the portacabins but could do with a cover for when it's raining. Which it did!

There is the option to camp on the top field (no EHU) which has stunning views over Porth Ceriad. From the family field you can use the private road to get to the beach which is only 10/15mins walk away. Ideal spot if you're a surfer.

Although a short run in the car to Abersoch or the Spar shop for provisions, it means Nant Y Big is away from it all and have to say we like it like that.

Not that we're sticklers for rules but they seemed to be adhered to and all was quiet after 11pm.

Great spot for chilling out, walking on the beach and headlands.

We would happily recommend this site and we will be returning to Nant Y Big, its a great site, lovely location and friendly staff!

We Stayed at this site for 3 days and enjoyed it so much helped admittedly by lovely weather.

The site is situated about 1 mile from Abersoch with stunning views all around.

The facilities are first class with toilets cean and the grass cut short. It is only about 5 mins walk from the nearest beach with other spectacular beaches nearly.

Our visit was helped by the cheerful warden.

The only minor adverse comment was the lack of a notice advertising the site on the main road.

We will certainly be returning

Brilliant site, amazing location. Really well organised and run without feeling too 'military'. The staff were really friendly and recommended where we should pitch - the panoramic field 'as the forecast is not too windy'. We got a stunning pitch on the top of the cliff looking out across Porth Ceriad.

There's so much space on the site, whilst it was great to have neighbours to chat to, we didn't feel we were crowded. The site was quiet and you've just got the sound of the countryside/waves at night.

On our last morning, the wind picked up slightly which made putting the tent down slightly more difficult, so if there's forecast wind, I'd ask for a more sheltered spot - the owners have the weather forecast up on the office/caravan and are very knowledgeable to advise.

The showers are in a portacabin and when I used them were lovely and hot and free, no need to queue at 6pm. The loos again are in a portacabin, kept very clean and stocked with toilet paper.

The only very slight criticism is the pot washing area didn't have very hot water. There's a freezer in the pot wash area to put your freezer blocks in, no charge, we didn't have a problem finding space, apparently peak times it may get full - but a great idea.

The walk down to the beach is a slight trek down hill (and a hike back up) but is not too bad, my 3 year old son made it no problem. This is summer holidays but the beach was not ridiculously busy (unlike Abersoch which we briefly visited and came away quick!).

The site is quite easy to find if you use a sat nav to get you close and then the instructions on the web site. All in all a fabulous site, we'll be going back.
