Stayed on this site over the august bank holiday and found it be a lovely site. The site is set on different levels with plenty of room although the pitch I was given on the upper level had a lot of stones just below surface which bent a few pegs.

The welcome was warm and unlike other reviews I found the steward easy to find as he made regular drives around the site.

The facilities had everything we needed and were very clean( strong smell of bleach in the mornings). The showers were fine, the tokens were long enough to wash one person but had to use more than one for the kids which you have to go out of the shower to do.

The beach is a bit of a walk away especially with kids, more like 30mins.

All in all a good site for the money

I paid a fleeting, one night visit to this site during the heat wave of July 2013 and came away pretty impressed. The site has a quiet location, level enough pitches and is about 20 minutes walk from the beach and 2 minutes from a pleasant pub which did decent bar food. A stream runs through the camp site so you go to sleep to the sound of a babbling brook.

If I had any criticism it would be with the showers. While they are clean enough and boast central heating radiators and piped music you need tokens to operate them at 40p a go. Make sure you get some when you check in (I didn’t and then had to modge about finding mine host). Also they are on a timer and cut off with no warning – just the job when you have a hair full of shampoo. Make sure you have a spare token with you. I also found the shower floor very slippery and could have done with a grab handle. Take care……

However, these are relatively minor criticisms and I would certainly visit this site again.

Good points

Easy access and easy to find, very friendly owner, the site is flat and very well maintained. Shops are a 10 minute walk away. Showers and toilets were always clean and there is a nice stream flowing through the site and a park. The price I thought was quite reasonable. There are quite a few seasonals here but they all seemed friendly as were their kid.

Bad point

Shower block a bit dated and you have to get undressed then come outside the cubicle to put the tokens in. Also there is a toilet in the shower cubicle which I did not like. The park is too far away from the touring field and next to a busy main road. Behind the site they were chain sawing from 7. 30am. No sea views.

Beautiful, quite and very well kept site, with good size pitches and nice location. Handy for both Harlech and Barmouth. We were greeted by Nick the owner, who was both helpful and very friendly. We will definitely go back.

The only down point were the showers, they were clean but a little tired and bearing in mind the site fees, I thought they were a little expensive. You also had to get undressed and go outside the cubical to put your token in the meter, as the water starts immediately.

There is a Spar supermarket in the village and a nice restaurant/pub next door.

This is a nice, reasonably quiet site a short way from Barmouth, there are a few local shops for essentials in the village.

It was easy to find, and we were welcomed warmly. The playground is in great condition, our only negative for this is that it is right by the entrance, so wouldn't let the kids go alone.

Everything was clean, despite the rain, we often got a warm hello each evening from the lady cleaning the facilities.

Our main criticism for the site would be the showers - it was quite odd to find a toilet and sink in with the shower, so when the shower was on the loo got soaked as well, the loo isnt needed as there are 3 opposite! The water wasn't always very warm and tokens didn't last long when trying to shower a child as well. Every time I turned round I bumped into the loo or sink as there is limited positioning of the shower head. Take the loo out and it would be ideal!

Having a dishwashing sink open next to a chemical waste disposal point wasn't great - I think they should be separated a bit more.

All in all I liked the site as it was sheltered and had a lovely stream running alongside, it was also quite sheltered, which was a bonus when the weather was bad

This is a fantastic site where the welcome is both genuine & warm. A small site, catering for about 30 ish caravans but many tents, the van pitches are hardstanding and level. No problems at all, well maintained & cut grass. The toilet block is small and with the exception of a small fan heater, not heated. Showers were adequate, 50p a token which still lasts about 5 minutes. Laundry & pot wash in the same block. Toilet disposal point on site. I would definitely recommend this site to couples wanting a quieter break, although if (BIG IF) the site gets full there may be a shortage of car parking spaces, but I'm sure something could be arranged. My TV signal was very poor, despite trying using a directional aerial and a finder I couldn't pick anything up. Hey Ho! I would definitely return to this site.
