Stayed on this site for 3 nights, it's a lovely little site that we did not know existed. We booked on to a hard standing pitch with water waste and electric, the pitch was a generous size with plenty of space for a awning, and all this for 20 a night. The site has a small modern shower block although they do charge 50p for the shower also a spacious indoor area for washing your pots and pans. Also here you will find a variety of walks and leaflets of local attractions. The site was nice and quiet also was kept in pristine condition, a credit to the owners, we would certainly stay here again and with great beaches and pubs both in nefyn and morfa nefyn it's a gem that won't stay a secret to long.

Reviewer: WalkingWales 1 review from this member

I have never before been inclined to write a review, but on this occasion I really want to sing the praises of the owners of this lovely, well-maintained site.

We are walking the Wales Coast Path, all 870 miles of it, We have just returned from a week's stay in our touring caravan at Tyn y Coed, which was our base for walking the Llyn peninsula. Our needs are pretty basic in what we hope for from a site. Yes the toilet/shower block was clean and well maintained, the washing and fridge freezer facilities are all very good. One facility though that rarely gets a mention is the chemical waste disposal! This was the cleanest and most functional example I have ever encountered.

But it's not the facilities on the site that has inspired me to write a review. The logistics involved in walking successive sections of the coast path can be quite problematic, especially when you are walking from one point to another and you only have one car.

The site owners went out of their way to help out: we were able to drop our car off at our finishing point of the day's walk and the owners drove us to our start point, this would have taken well over an hour of their day, on each of the days they did this for us. They showed a genuine interest in what we were doing and were clearly very proud of the 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' that is the Llyn Peninsula.

As an aside, we have walked the 630 mile South West Coast Path and other paths including Hadrian's Wall, Offa's Dyke and The Cotswold Way and so far, 300 miles of the Wales Coast Path but few places can compare to the coastline of the Llyn peninsula, 'dramatic' doesn't do justice!

I hasten to add that this was the first week of the season and there were few others on the site. However, the customer service was exemplary. It was more like a friend helping out. Diolch!

We've just returned home from a lovely few nights stay at Tyn Y Coed. A lovely small site, really well run and looked after.

The field with the tent pitches was quite busy, and when a large caravan plus awning and large 4x4 car pitches up it is quite close together, but not to detract from the standard of this site.

As other reviews have said, there are only 2 toilets and one shower in each M / F bathroom, plus a family/disabled room. Again, as others have said, the 50p/7 mins charge means that there is rarely a queue for the facilities, which is great.

The washing up room is a proper indoor room with a fridge, freezer, washer and tumble dryer, as well as lots of information about local attractions and walking routes.

With so many families in a fairly small space it was a bit noisy, but the 10pm quite time was fairly well obeyed so we didn't have a problem here.

Just two things to bear in mind - firstly, it was very dry when we arrived and the ground was very hard. Bent quite a few tent pegs! Also the field is a bit sloping in parts and also a little uneven, which could be an issue if you were unlucky or pitched your tent in a particular spot on the pitch. The pitches are generously sized and clearly marked, however, so I don't think this is a major issue.

Locally, lovely little shops and a nice playground for the kids. Pubs etc we didn't get chance to sample, sadly! Overall, a really enjoyable stay.

First time we've stayed at this site, and this will be a very positive review. It's a gem of a little site, well looked after, spacious pitches and clean facilities. We were booked onto a fully serviced pitch, plenty of room for awning and car. A great price too, 20 for two adults, fully serviced, peak season, only 2 a night extra for the junior Delard too. Great location, local shops in Morfa Nefyn within walking distance - recommend the shop behind the petrol station - great instore bakery with daily freshly made croissants and bara brith. Croissants were still warm when we bought them - great breakfast!

Locally, the beaches are stunning, Llanbedrog probably our favourite. The sea stays shallow for a long distance, and was actually warm, (we were lucky with the weather for most of the week we stayed here). Locally, we visited Pwllheli, Aberdaron, Abersoch, Portmadog and Criccieth. There's plenty of places of interest to visit, all within thirty minutes or so. Stunning scenery surrounds the site. Most of the beaches close by were National Trust owned, which for us is a bonus, as parking is free for members.

Had a great meal in the Y Bryncynan, two courses each, with plenty of drinks, came to 70. But, the mixed grill, wow! Well worth the hefty 18. 95 price tag - top of the money for a mixed grill - but what a meal! The rest of the family also chose well. Always had a busy car park whenever we passed, always a positive sign for a pub.

I was slightly concerned about the amount of showers, one in the gents/ladies. But, to be fair, in a week, I only queued once for a shower. Putting this into perspective, I've stayed on large five star sites, with multiple blocks, each containing multiple showers, and had to queue for longer, and for multiple times during a weeks stay. I never once found the facilities to be less than clean. The 50p meter for the shower did 'eat' a 50p for both myself and the OH, but we reported this to the site owner, (not for the refund necessarily - just to let him know it had a fault, but he refunded the money anyway and seemed a little disgruntled as he'd spent good money on replacing the box in order to try and provide better service to the customers. It only happened once for me, and luckily I had a spare 50p in my washbag - recommended tip. 7 minutes proved plenty of time for a shower, and I for one don't begrudge the cheaper pitch price and paying for a shower - comes under the pay for what you use rule.

There were a few seasonals, who one night were a little noisy, but generally they were all a pretty friendly bunch. The only negative for us, was a lack of a park for the kids to play ball in - our car was hit twice by a group of kids who decided to play cricket next to our van, rather than there own - but they moved on when they realised themselves that they perhaps chose the wrong place to play cricket. No harm done, just the lack of playing field. I would definitely be returning to this site if we visit this part of Wales again, all positive, from the welcome, booking in process, cost, and the site itself.

Have just stayed at this site for the Easter weekend, its lovely the grass is flat and well cut, 2 toilets and 1 shower were immaculate the shower is 50p but you get a long hot shower for this money recycling bins at the entrance

Its not on the beach but a 15 minute walk will bring you out at the cliff top where you can walk down to the pub on the beach

The owners are very nice and extremely helpful will definitely go back for another stay but next time a bit longer

Please remember to follow the camp sites directions

A very nice site, we had a super pitch for only 20 pounds well worth the money. Toilet block was spotless every time I visited. It has a good mix of tents and caravans. We visited all the local beaches and the dog was welcome everywhere. Can highly recommend the local Indian restaurant oh and the local shops are very well stocked if you are up this way I would highly recommend this site as a base to explore nice quiet and very clean
