Reviewer: Keleanne 2 reviews from this member

This was our first visit and first impressions were great. Views from all areas of the tent field are stunning, we chose to pitch in the centre of the field as were were in a group but for campers wanting more privacy there is plenty of room to pitch around the perimeter.

With the spectacular views of the mountains and sea from different points around the site you really feel as though you've got away from it all, however access to Criccieth and Porthmadog with an Aldi, Lidl and Tesco is only a 5 minute (if that!) drive from site. Free wi-fi is also available.

The only negative points we found relate to the toilet/shower block. This is at the end of the site where the caravans are - so the campers without toilet facilities have to walk the furthest. Can be a bit of a pain with small children - especially in the middle of the night! There were no mops provided to clean the shower floors after use so they got pretty mucky throughout the day and the shower water was very hot!

Aside from this, we were really impressed with this relaxed, friendly and well maintained site which we will certainly be visiting again.

Lovely large partially sloping well kept field with plenty of electric hook ups. Although those in middle of field may be a bit exposed.

Toilet block is near entrance to the site, which is a bit of a hike if you`re pitched at far side of camping field! Toilets were reasonably clean and cleaner still if people used toilet brush beside toilet! The showers were free and hot. There was a hair dryer for 50p but was broken when we were there.

Site was quiet when we visited, and although there appeared to be a large number of seasonal caravans on site some were unoccupied.

Plenty to see and do, beach not far at Criccieth, although it is shingle/rocky, best beaches at Black Rock Sands. We went on steam train to Beddgelert, spent the afternoon there and caught 5. 30 train back. A lovely day out, especially if sunny!

Just returned home from a 4 night stay here,

the camping field was quiet and was told to pitch up anywhere

very clean peaceful site and the views, well that's what makes this place special.

The area itself is ideally located for site seeing, the walk into cricceth is around half an hour,

I just wish that they had put the toilet and shower block in the middle of the site, because in the middle of the night it is a bit of a trek, this is not a negative just a bug bare for us.

The price of our pitch 20 with electric outstanding value. Deffo return

This is a lovely site and although the majority of tourers there are seasonal there are a few spaces for caravans. The pitch we were given was quite small and extremely exposed. You WILL need awning straps for this site as it is an extremely windy site even without the gales that we had. It was exterme weather whilst we were there with extreme wind and rain and as long as you can sleep through this you will be fine.

The showers are cleaned daily by an outside company and there is no access to these dependant on when they come. Some times its tea time so can be a difficult time for people coming home from the beach/walking etc.

There is a disabled shower toilet which would be ideal for families but when we asked we were refused entry to it even though we explained that my 6 yr old was actually scared of the showers as they were so hot. They do get extremely hot. There are no mops etc. So they do get very mucky very quickly. On our final day they 'ran out' of water and so a cold shower was had, this was at 9am! There is a notice saying all children under 13 must be accompanied to showers but this is not enforced and on a couple of occasions I spoke to 'young' girls throwing wet toilet tissues around the shower/toilet block.

The play area is in the camping field. Children are no allowed to play by their caravans at all.

Each touring pitch has its own water, waste and electric which is great BUT the pitch we had only just managed to fit on our caravan and awning. Literally. There were banks either side so it is restricted.

The views are beautiful and you can see Harlech Castle which is amazing when it is lit up by the setting sun. A gorgeous area and a lovely campsite but you need to be prepared for the wind!

Just returned from a camping break at this site - our first time here. Lovely location, and beautifully kept park. What views -breath taking!

Spacious camping field, free shower facilities 24hrs a day on a reasonably priced site-what a change, and contract cleaners come every day (sometimes twice). Noticed from previous reviews about soap dispensers in the shower block - nice to see the owners take note of comments and have had them put in, also a small freezer for ice packs.

Great for children - plenty of room to run around and play. Very relaxed atmosphere on the site we met some lovely people who return year on year.

Overall a very pleasurable break and will definitely return.

We had a fully serviced pitch - luxury so didn't need to enter the facilities on site but they looked clean and modern from the outside! Free Wifi was really useful for us.

Blink and you'll miss the site entrance especially from Porthmadog but once you know where it is it is easy to get to and no awkward turn to perform.

The pitches can be on the small side depending on the size of your unit but we managed a large porch awning and the car on the hardstand but you can park on the grass on some pitches or across the front if you have a full size awning and a long caravan.

Nice slate chippings kept everything clean and tidy for a wet week in Wales.

The recycling facilities are fabulous - some of the best we've seen. Didn't use the children's play area as our little one was content with talking to the cows and sheep surrounding the site.

Criccieth is an easy footpath walk away. Gorgeous part of the world We'll be back!
