Reviewer: Dadsnlads 1 review from this member

I'm not really sure why the last reviewer gave this an average review because 'you can't really join any footpaths straight from the site' - surely that's due to lack of research on behalf of the camper!

This campsite is great for lake access, watersports etc. It's very convenient for getting to Bala or down to Dolgellau. All the pitches are flat and there was plenty of space.

Megan was very helpful, finding the best spot for us despite incessant rain, sorting out a new gas cylinder when the one we had didn't work etc.

Toilet facilities are great. It's a shame the play park isn't in the camping area itself but I'm being picky.

Great site.

We booked this camp site without proper research and at the last minute. I imagine it's great if you have kids that want to make friends and roam free around the extensive site. I am sure it is right up a lot of peoples street in terms of a community feel, I got the impression that people had been going there a long time and had made friends with others there - this might be because of the number of permanent pitches.

So if you're after a safe, family friendly site for a get together, I'm sure you could do worse.

If you are looking for a rural getaway with a bit of walking, or a feeling of space and tranquility, this is not really the site for you. You can't really join any footpaths straight from the site, except for the footpath by the main road which runs along the side of the lake a mile or two in to Bala town itself.

I'd say it's jolly expensive too at around 24/night for a motorhome.

Facilities are very large and clean. Spot on.

All in all a pleasant enough spot, a bit pricey and v family orientated.

We've stayed at this site many times before. We were welcomed by Meg, who I believe to be the owner. She was friendly and helpful as always. We found the site, toilet, wash facilities etc spotless. The shop is well stocked with any bits you might have forgotten.

The primary appeal for us staying here is the immediate access on to Bala lake. Our party had an assortment of inflatables and a sailing dinghy and had a lovely time pottering around on the lake. The site is very laid back and relaxed - there has never been any issue with noise here.

If you are not into the water or complete relaxation then this is probably not the site for you as there is nothing else in the immediate vicinity. Bala is a couple of miles up the road and has shops, pubs, restaurants, cafe's and anything else you may need but I wouldn't say it's walking distance from the site.

I'm sure we'll be back again next year!

Great site with friendly staff. Excellent location on the banks of Bala lake. Great for launching the Kayaks. Lots to do if you don't mind a bit of a drive out.

Can be busy at peak times but facilities are kept clean.

Normal shop's in Bala ie Co-op etc and the White Lion Royal Hotel is a nice place for a family tea with good offers if you eat in the week.

This was our second visit and will be back next year.

Great location but views and ambiance spoilt by caravans been packed in like sardines for Bank holiday weekend. We were closely surrounded in all directions meaning little privacy and lots of noise. The toilet/shower facilities are good plenty of hot water and no queues, we loved the area especially Bala town, the waterfall, Bala Lake and Barmouth loads more to see which we didn't have time for. Small shop and play area definitely a site for groups and outdoor pursuits. Site boggy in places, no dog poo bins and poor lighting but I liked the location the lake was beautiful and clear. Need clear pitching rules and maybe marked and numbered pitches as the centre field was too packed in our opinion. Lots of groups cyclists and canoeists more of a family/group site, groups of scouts and guides there too.

We visited Glannlynn for the August bank holiday this year. The facilities were good and there are plenty of showers we never had to queue.

The location is amazing fantastic views access straight onto the lake and a 3 minute drive into Bala town.

We had our inflatable kayak with us and the kids loved paddling and swimming in the lake. The lake was very child friendly for the kids as you could walk out for 30m before it got to your waist.

All in all we had 5 really good nights even with the horizontal torrential rain we had for the first 2 days.
