Aberafon is set in a beautiful location; surrounded by mountains and sea. Be aware, however, that some of the pitches are extremely exposed. We experienced some bad weather and watched helplessly as a number of tents were badly damaged. There are some sheltered pitches available, which I would recommend.

We found the owners to be welcoming and helpful. The toilets were basic but clean. The showers could be better, as the lay out means there is often water running through the block. However, on the plus side, the water was always hot when we used the showers and we didn't experience any queues.

We did find that our pitch was too small for our tent. I had offered to pay for two pitches when we booked but was told there was no need as we could have a large pitch (we provided tent measurements). However, our neighbours were almost on top of us and this was not conducive to a relaxing stay.

The campsite is in a superb location but selecting the best pitch is important in making the most of this site and what it has to offer.

This is quite difficult-- on arrival I was shown to the top field- stunning views, quite a calm evening- then the next day the wind kicked up!- as other reviews have stated it is very exposed- I nearly lost my tent!- ended up sleeping in the car, the gazebo next to me went out to sea- it is difficult because the owners were friendly- and in a lovely location- but why are the sheltered parts reserved for caravans or tents with electric hook ups- surely would be better to have more sheltered pitches available- suffice to say I left a day early-to go to a sheltered site inland--

I have left feed back for this site before.

This time we suffered a bad storm so I would recommend not using the top field if the weather is windy, This site is so lovely, although the entrance to it is so tight it does need widening,

The showers are a bit far away, but toilet blocks are always left clean, This is a basic campsite no big thrills here and very out of the way you need a car to get about. It has a small shop for basic stuff, you can get gas refills, and has a laundry room nothing amazing but enough for a few days break. The staff are friendly and will try to help best they can.

An enjoyable visit, I stayed here as the cost of the hotel for the same period of time would have been over 100. For 15 a night, I thought it was good value.

The site, on first impressions seemed quite nice and tranquil. You're quite far from the road but next to the sea which is good. The road to the site itself is a bit tight and has a sharp bend in it but that didn't bother me.

The site itself is good with nice facilities. The showers were nice and hot and the toilet blocks were in good condition and well maintained. The small shop on site was nice and handy too.

The location is excellent, being only 10/15 mins to Caernarfon/Pwllheli and there are several villages nearby with lots of facilities. I would come back as I loved the site and the surroundings.

Just back from 10 day stay here. Very quirky layout, nice seaviews and well maintained site.

Entrance is tarmaced single track road with 2 tight bends. Thought at least there be mirrors on the corners or a green and red light button system. Seriously if you have a motorhome, caravan or big trailer, send someone to the bottom with mobile phone to say all is clear.

Main shower block is good, but site needs more showers and extra dishwashing facilities nearer bulk of tents.

A romantic walk on the pebble beach is hard going, I was too busy trying not to twist my ankle.

Although we were caught up in a severe gale warning, it still is a gusty site, even in the sheltered caravan field.

We scored the site as satisfactory, but wont return.

Stayed at Aberafon for 2 nights over the bank holiday. The site is beautifully situated, the facilities are good, the owners couldn't have been more friendly.

The shower/toilet block is situated at the entrance, a little walk away from the sea view pitches. There are 3 showers (20p coin for 3 minutes, which meant a cue of about 2 to 3 people during busy times. However, there are toilets and washing up facilities in each of the fields. The pool/TV room and the complimentary ice pack freezer were much appreciated.

The situation of the site (we stayed at one of the sea facing fields) is picture perfect, even when fully booked the campsite doesn't feel crowded. There were many people with children (of all ages) and also dogs, but all were very well behaved

When the owner came around to warn us of strong winds we took the awning down, which saved it, as the winds were really gusty. So, when you are going and the owner warns. Do listen.

We packed up a day early due to the weather but the short time at Aberafon has definitely been one of the best we ever spent on a campsite. You can't beat Aberafon for a seaside campsite that ticks all the boxes.
