The obvious draw for this campsite is the great location, with it's own access to a nice cobbly beach, and great views.

Care is needed driving down steep and winding access track.

The owner is very friendly and helped us to choose a pitch to stay out of the wind. The facilities are fairly basic, but clean. There are a few toilets dotted around the edges of the 4 different fields, and it is a bit of a walk down to the shower block, but we don't mind that at all.

The reception shop sells a few basic things like tins and wood for making a small fire amongst the rocks on the beach (which is popular), but we found the Londis shop at the garage about a mile down the road was handy for essentials like fresh milk and meat. The site has spare ice blocks in the freezer that you can borrow, which is a nice touch whilst ours were re-freezing.

My only gripe would be that there were no recycling facilities, just a big skip to put your rubbish in when you leave.

Fab place! We had a seaview pitch for two nights in mid June - cost £32. The owner was lovely and friendly and welcoming. As we arrived she was cheerfully outlining food buying options to the couple before us, then gave us comprehensive directions to our pitch, a wee map of the site and a copy of the not very restrictive rules. The pitch was very well sized, we didn't at all feel like we were camping on our neighbours and the view was, as hoped for, utterly, utterly glorious; cliffs and hills and sea and beach. Facilities were excellent and clean - 20p buys you three minutes in the shower and we were offered (and gratefully accepted) the chance to change money on arrival. Showers were hot and cubicles had a good amount of space. Extra bonuses for us were the aloof llama in the next field along, a glorious, glorious sunset on the Saturday night and bunnies frolicking at twilight on the way to the showers. Was also a lovely and quiet site. Did think the jetski trailing about in our seaview was a bit of a noisy irritant but its owner made up for this by getting his Landrover beached on the beach and therefore providing a good half hour entertainment watching him try and get it out. :)

This is a perfect getaway from all the hustle and bustle of a city.

A small narrow entrance leads to the campsite.

We were offered either sheltered or sea view pitches and opted for sheltered. Would recommend this for any campers as the sea view area is very exposed.

Our 3 kids loved the campsite as it has a stream they could play in, a small play area and the beach. The beach is pebbled.

The owners were friendly and helpful. Our only negative comment about this is that we were quoted one price for pitch fees and paid a deposit based on this. On arrival we were advised that the price was different and that the website prices were out of date. It was 50p per person per night. With a family of 5 staying for 7 nights couldn't be bothered to argue but did feel a bit miffed so double check before booking!

First time me and my girlfriend have been. Its a great site for peace and quiet. The private lane from the main road is narrow so be careful with caravans.

The site owner was very friendly and helpful. There is also a shop at the main house selling bits and pieces. Its also where the refuse bins are located. There was a freezer for your ice packs as well. The shower block is located near the main entrance to the site and was very clean and looked brand new. It cost 20p for a shower which we didn't mind paying. Found it easier to go for a shower on our way out for the day as it was a fair trek from the tent fields.

We picked a sheltered spot rather than the sea view that was offered, pitches are allocated so I'd advise you book your spot. I'm really glad we picked the sheltered spot on the field closest to the sea as the sea view spots are very exposed. The wind seams to funnel through the valley so other tents looked like they were having a tough time.

There were clean toilets and placed in each field with a sink for washing up. Washing up was a joy as you got to enjoy a fantastic sea view.

Fires were not permitted on site but were on the pebble beach, fire wood is sold on site too. The sunsets were great from the beach. There was also a hidden gem further down the coast in the neighbouring village which is in walking distance when the tide is out. It has a sandy deserted beach with an old harbour wall. A great place for crab fishing with loads of rock pools to go exploring in. We saw about 10 people all day, which was mainly locals walking their dogs, It has a car park and very clean toilet block.

Really looking forward to going back again this year. A great well priced site

Easy find with sat nav.

Good set up.

Plenty of space on allocated pitches.

Refuse and shop at main house.

Showers a bit far from top field but is camping after all.

Views amazing. Beach great. Bit rocky under foot, entry to water easy with craft.

Toilets dotted about the site.

Hook ups available.

BBQ allowed off ground. No wood fires on pitches. But ok on beach front.

Very good and we will return soon.

Was really looking forward to this trip, camping near the beach, but a little anxious with how the winds would be.

The entrance is tight as described on the website, you could almost miss it if you didn't read directions properly. As I pulled in a car was coming out so I had to reverse on the main road. The single track goes down for a fair bit and is hilly at sections.

When we got to reception it was busy and no where to park, but people had soon checked in and we off to their pitch. On check in you are given a map to show which field you are in and which pitch number. We asked for a sheltered pitch being on the beach and we had paid for EHU.

The pitches are quite small, I think she said 5m x 5m, but as we had 3 pitches they gave us the corner plot which worked well as one of the party with us only has a one man tent.

We pitched up after we got our electric back ( a campervan decided to use our electric while no one was pitched there!)

We thought pitching the back to the hedges/sea would have been better as that would be where any wind would come from but we were wrong! (more on that later)

Once pitched we took a wonder to the beach, which was a lovely little walk ( no more than 10 mins) and the beach is stoney - no sand. The views were amazing! The kids had fun in the water and it was nice to have a fresh water stream coming into the sea too.

We were quite close to the main toilet facilities which were lovely and clean and had a radio playing. There were 4 showers, 2 private cubicles for washing and 4 toilets. Plug sockets in the wash cubicles.

There is a site shop, but we took a drive to the Tesco in Caernarfon, as I forgot all my veggie food (still in the freezer at home!)

There is a pool room and a place to freeze your freezer blocks free of charge too.

You aren't allowed campfires on site but can have them on the beach and it is an amazing experience. It is also amazing to sit on the beach and watch the sun go down with a glass of wine.

We had a lovely time here despite the winds, gusts and rain on the last night which meant we had to take the extension down as the wind was hitting it hard from the front.

I would recommend and would go back
