Would not return here.

Location was good although there are another 3 sites within walking distance.

I know that this is a working farm but as soon as we drove up I thought we had hit Steptoe's yard/The hills have eyes!

Facilities were basic but clean, 1 for a shower(of variable time duration).

Camping field was OK but surroundings were very tired.

Llanrug itself is a grey, soulless, desolate place. But not in a good way.

Llanberis, about 4 miles away boasts some shops & a really good slate mine site which is free & well worth a visit (Llyn Padarn) right by the mountain railway entrance.

The location of this site is excellent for all of the Snowdonia attractions, we summited Snowdon via Crib Goch & Tryfan while here, Both only about 20 mins away.

If all you want is a no frills base to travel from, this site is ideal, If you want a site with good facilities etc. Not so good.

Where other people have put that the owners interactions were friendly etc, I just found it annoying but, horses for courses!

Highly Recommended.

Stayed here Easter hols. Very enthusiastic owner who tries to encourage parents and kids to enjoy nature instead of playing computer games and the like. Good level site with views.

The toilets and showers were immaculate everyday we were were there.

Situated close to all the amenities Snowdonia National Park has to offer, and only 5 minutes drive into Caernarfon for main shops etc.

Will definitely be returning in the future.

What a fabulous site! not for the people that like 'kiss me quick hats' and the 'clubhouse'.

A truly beautiful, unspoiled part of the world. Right on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park. We spent two weeks listening to birdsong and looking at the wonderful views of Snowdon and the surrounding mountains right from our caravan from morning until night!

Sue the site owner is by far the warmest, friendliest owner we have ever had the good fortune to meet, and we have had a lot of experience. She is welcoming and nothing is too much trouble, but she doesn't interfere, she just lets you get on with enjoying a peaceful quiet break. The site is on a working farm and you can often observe just how hard Sue and her staff work, but Sue will always find time for a chat and she can tell you so much about local history and the surrounding area.

Sue has put aside a meadow which is steeped in history and last year she personally planted over 1400 trees, which we are looking forward to seeing grow as we intend to revisit. The meadow is dedicated to attracting wildlife and the site guests are invited to enjoy walking and enjoying the flora and forna there in. There are seats placed around for you to just sit and enjoy the whole tranquil experience.

The toilet and shower block is kept very clean.

There are hard standings around the field for caravans with hookups. It is a child friendly site and an ideal base to visit all the wonderful castles and splendours that Snowdonia has to offer.

Highly recommended.

We spent four nights at this site over the Whitsun break and can certainly say its a fantastic little site.

Sue is really friendly and kept our son and our friends two boys entertained with stories of the fairies who reside in the on site fairy garden. Our son loved receiving replies to the letters he left for the fairies! He's certain he saw at least one or two while he was exploring!

The site is ideally located to visit many places in the Snowdonia region. We managed to see a few and can recommend a visit to Caernarfon Castle.

We will definitely be returning for another visit to this little gem.

Have just spent 4 nights at this little gem of a site! I agree with all comments written so far. It really is a lovely spot! Sue is very friendly. My kids loved her & she made us feel very welcome!

Kids enjoyed the fairy garden & Sue's many stories of trolls & goblins.Which are all true! and the baby ducks!

Ideally situated for Snowdon & local beaches. We will go back very soon.It's a bargain! Highly recommended!

Excellent site all round, we arrived at 8:30 pm and were greeted by Sue and assisted to our level pitch. The kids enjoyed the freedom of riding their bikes around the circuit.

Lovely views and ideally situated for Caernarfon Bangor and Llanberis. Perfect for the 'fresh air' families who love to go walking and climbing in Snowdonia.

The toilets and showers were sparkling clean.

18 per night for Caravan, Awning, hook up 2 adults and 2 kids, excellent value. We'll be back.
