Great campsite. Stayed a week in a tent with two children (aged nearly 2 and 5) on a superpitch with water and electric.

Brilliant facilities. Showers were the best I have ever seen on a campsite even after heavy rainfall and at peaktimes. Never had to queue, pot wash facilities also good. There is a good launderette room (3 for a wash, 3 for dry), small TV lounge and games room. Quite a walk from the outlying camping fields - the site is huge - to the reception or toilet block.

Shop on site basic but good; we forgot our electric hook up and there was a selection there with most other camping essentials, bread, milk, wine and beer etc. There is a pizza 'shack' Thursdays to Sundays in peak season which we enjoyed one night.

The playground is basic - a swing and a climbing frame or two, with an old tractor/ digger but my two enjoyed it. Would have loved a swing and slide for the older one. The Welsh highlands steam train runs right through the campsite which was great. The site itself is very picturesque, surrounded by mountains and with walks that lead from the campsite, there is a small picnic and BBQ area by the river (shallow at that point) which is really pretty.

The site is well placed for things to do - we went on the steam train into the mountains (around 70 so not cheap but a good few hours) and another around the lake at Llanberis (30 about an hour). Llanberis itself is a nice day out with a soft play area, park, the lake, lovely walks and a small castle as well as yet another train that takes you up Snowdon (around 90 and about 2 - 3 hours). We also visited Caernarfon and Beaumaris castles which are less than 30 minutes away and Anglesey for the beach (Rhosneigr is lovely, lots of rock pools and good fish and chips!)

There are a few large supermarkets within 20 minutes - large Tesco on retail park outside Bangor and a Morrisons and smaller Tesco in Caernarfon.

Rock pegs are advisable although we did manage without.

We prebooked a Superpitch (with hardstanding) and reception was very welcoming. Pitch was ideal - electricity, water, waste, and rubbish and other facilities very handy. Level pitches, plenty of room. Quiet site with fabulous views. Welsh Highland Railway (steam) went along the perimeter of site! Staff very helpful. Toilet/shower block was modern, clean and spacious, plenty of hot water. Also laundry room, small play area, games room, Wifi and computer lounge, shop. Definitely one for 'Must return' list.

We stayed at Bryn Gloch for a week, including the August Bank Holiday period on a tent pitch with electric hook up in the top field by the railway (by request). I must say we had a brilliant week, the site is kept immaculate and even during the Bank Holiday, at near max capacity the facilities were kept clean and tidy and plenty of hot water - busy during peak times but totally workable. The staff are all very welcoming and I really cannot fault the venue at all. We were lucky with weather which made the week in a tent 'easy'. It's short walk to the steam train platform or there is a hail stop very close to the site. There's an on site shop for essentials (ice pack rental service, gas, charcoal), a launderette and games room. All the major shops you need are only 6 miles away in Caernarfon. My only constructive comment is that the ablutions in the top field (during busy times) could do with a sink on it's own to wash hands after using the loo - the wash basins are in cubicles which when occupied make wash your hands a waiting game, although they give the privacy a lot of people like. That's being really picky as the other ablution is different layout and not an issue. It's a picture postcard location that's well run and well placed to take in the Hills. The Ranger Path is a very short distance away, as is the beautiful village Bedd Gelert, try the Snowdon Pizza in the Bistro next to the Ice Cream place - heavenly, not licensed but you can take your own wine. Caernarfon is also worth a visit. I will definitely stay at Bryn Gloch again and cannot recommend it highly enough - see you next year!

This is a brilliant site. The pitches are enormous, the toilet/shower block very modern and always clean, the staff were really friendly. The area was beautiful.

The shop held all the essentials, there was a games room for bad weather and a park for good, a laundrette and TV room.

There is a bunkhouse if you have no camping equipment at all.

All this for a reasonable price.

There is a small chip shop just up the road which is a bit pricey but the food is very nice. The lady behind the counter is an interesting character.

All in all a lovely family friendly site which I would very highly recommend.

Stayed 2 nights, showers and toilets very clean, its a big site with lots of good facilities, a lovely riverside picnic/barbeque area, bus to carnarvon just outside campsite, also welsh highland railway runs past with a station about a mile away, not too expensive, we will definitely be going back. The only thing I can complain about, and this is nothing to do with the campsite, we like to walk, but the local footpaths seemed to be unclear, I have noticed this on other welsh campsites, you get so far, then you end up in a field with no stiles or any clear signs, so end up going back.

1/08/13 Well what can I say apart from EXCELLENT!

I must admit, we booked this site and then I read reviews but I take everything with a pinch of salt and it was mainly a staff issue so thought no more about it. Correct choice!

This site was excellent!

A VERY warm welcome in reception (needed after a disastrous journey thanks to directions off The Caravan Club site!)

Lady took her time to explain about the site, directions and amenities and was just generally lovely!

Found our VERY spacious pitch with no problems and from the moment we unhooked- it was bliss!

Scenery was outstanding. The whole site was immaculately clean and tidy - the toilets. The best I've seen! I didn't use my own caravan loo just so I could go use these!

Showers were fantastic - no annoying curtain sticking to your back! very clean and very roomy too.

Walking along the river was tranquil.

Shop had all essentials that you could possibly need. Even Tie down kits!

Nice little park - could be updated a bit but my kids still liked it.

Whole site is very well set out. No over flowing bins. Everything is well looked after. Perfect.

We hada day out to Beddgelert (7 miles away) and went into Porthmadog too.

Upon leaving, another lady member of staff was very helpful in printing me off some proper directions home!

Cannot wait to get back here again! Bryn Gloch. Where have you been all my life?!
