The area is beautiful and scenery is stunning. Loads to do including the amazing zipworld which we did and loved. The campsite was poor. Grubby shower and toilet block, floors covered in grass cuttings all the time. I was glad of our caravan shower as I wouldn't have wanted to use theirs.

One of their brags is the new kids play area, it may well be new but they have stuck it in the middle of one of the camping fields rather than in an area that everyone feels comfortable using. Unless we were pitched in the field in which it was located we wouldn't use it.

A pizza oven in a converted horse box cooks pizzas every night. We only purchased once as they were expensive, small and lacking in toppings.

There's a nice pub about a mile from camp, sadly you can't safely walk to it as there's no path and the road is busy and narrow. Similarly if you need the shop then it's a ten minute drive to the nearest which is a londis at a petrol station. There is a campsite shop for essentials though but sadly no newspapers.

There is free wifi for one device but the signal was so poor we could hardly ever use it.

The stones used on the hard standing pitches were awful. When it rained a chalky grey substance coated our shoes and as hard as we tried it just got everywhere. Also with dogs it was impossible to avoid.

The lads who emptied the big green wheelie bins were just dangerous. Dragging the bins around with quads at speed isn't something you want to see on a campsite.

All in all I would return to the area but wouldn't return to Bryn Gloch.

Stayed for 3 nights over the Easter bank holiday, paid 3 a night to leave our caravan at the site and returned the following weekend.

Location perfect, views of mountains all around.

Toilet and shower block clean. Site shop good for topping up.

Garage down the road had a mini supermarket which was good if you don't want to drive to Caernarfon.

Had a meal in the pub down the road, was a nice pub meal.

Got the train into Caernarfon which was a lovely day out.

We booked a Superpitch (hardstanding with electricity, water, waste) this was the first time we had used a hard standing and it was very good but I will remember to bring a long waster pipe next time so I can go directly to the waste bypassing the waster master! Level pitches, masses of room and even chains so you can lock stuff up. Lovely site with fabulous views and an excellent base for travelling around.

Have just returned from a 3 night stay at Bryn Gloch. Beautiful site and lovely friendly staff. Everything was clean and well kept. The toilet block was clean and always had hot water and toilet roll! The only downside was the 5 minute walk from the bottom of the camping field to the toilet block. The site was well sign posted, the plots were spacious and the site was very quiet by 11pm - perfect with 2 small children! Loads to do within 30 minute drive, we did Caernarfon and Conwy castles, Plans Mawr country house, Llanberis lake side train and on the way home Merlin's cave labarynth.

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.
