Ok overall a great site that could be better, its a great setting in Snowdonia, a nice sized site with plenty of space we paid for electric pitches upon arrival a drunk young coulple had pitches on our pitch and gone to sleep! We went to the pub and the staff asked then to move.

The pitches are large in the first field with good natural drainage, as we were with another couple with young children we were given great pitches 21&22 these were very secluded and had a large area for the kids to play and to park both cars.

The steam rain stops at the middle of the two camping field which the kids loved, the pub is nice and the real ale's are great but the foods not brilliant just basic pub grub!

As other campers have mentioned the cockerel and dog at he back of the site are a pain but bearable, there is plenty to do in the local area and the train that passes though will definitely be something that we will do again.

The main downside is the showers and toilets witch are grubby and basic, they need an overhaul again bearable dbut basic.

Very nice site with beautiful view of the mountains and has the Welsh Highland Railway Station. The site is split into two; toilets on one side of the track, and toilets showers and laundry on the other. With access with a foot bridge over the railway. Decent size plot, Electric hook ups available, There is a pub on site with hot and cold food, dogs are welcome in some areas of the pub, ideal if you are wanting to go off on the train for the day as you can be off the train and in your van in around 2 mins, family room, I will definitely stay here again

Starting with the positive:

The site is well located about 10 minutes drive from the local town and a similar distance from other local attractions.

In general the site is nicely kept and fairly attractive place to stay.

The on-site facilities are adequate/functional however basic - toilets, hot showers and laundry facilities are available. There is a generous distribution of water and electric available among the 30 odd pitches.

So far so good.

HOWEVER, what sounded like what can only described as a puppy farm is located about 20 feet from our pitch in an isolated farm barn. Constant and sustained overnight dog barking and crying which filled the site resulted in a few hours of sleep and unfortunately spoiled ours and numerous other people's stay.

When raised with a member of bar staff it seemed to be a well known issue, which I find surprising.

In conclusion, I feel that this is potentially a perfectly adequate camp site, however I feel it was let down on this occasion by factors that may not have been under their control and hope that these issues are sorted before any lasting damage is done.

Very nice small site beautiful view of the mountains and has a working vintage train station and stream train. The site is split into two; tiolets on one side, tiolets showers and laundry on the other. We stayed on the main part of the site and your given a pretty decent size plot their was plent of ten berth tents there and you don't pay any extra. Car park for extra cars which you don't have to pay for. Electric hook ups available and no limit on power. There is a pub on site, family room(dogs r aloud)pub area (adults only and teenagers) restaurant(no dogs) so felt they catered for most families. Food was served in all rooms so you could eat any where in the pub. Food was nice and filling, on site bewery and the ale is lovely. Friendly staff they make you very welcome. I will definitely stay here again as in a prime location.

There isnt a play ground on the camping area but there is a small one next to the pub; there is plenty of areas for the kids to play using their imagination. Tiolets are cleaned daily and showers have codes on to stop anyone using them. Showers were good nice big shower heads, temperature variates but that's understandable; but plenty of room to get changed( would help to have a cubicle for just washing) petrol station not far from site which is good. Ideal for walkers and train enthusiasts.

A pretty decent camping/caravan site comprising two fields separated by a miniature railway line. The railway doesn’t run at night so no issues regarding train noise and the road is pretty quiet at night too. Some noise from local dogs and cockerels but nothing major, and the lambs that were wandering freely were a bit loud at times, but they do a good job of keeping the grass short.

We were in the back field, over the railway line, and some areas of the field were quite soggy. Access is across the railway line through two gates, or over a footbridge if you park in the pub car park. There is a small river at the back of the field so you do get midges hanging around waiting for a human meal.

Showers are free, which is a bonus, although the temperature can vary a little and it got a bit too hot for comfort on occasions. Toilets are ok but need a bit of maintenance to bring them up to standard. The toilet paper dispensers like to fall open when you least expect it and the automatic light sensor doesn’t reach into the cubicles, so you can find yourself plunged into darkness if you hang around for too long, same lighting problem with the shower cubicles. Two toilets, two sinks and three showers in the gents, same in the ladies.

There is a washing room with 2 sinks, a freezer, a washer and a dryer. Washer and dryer are on a coin meter but the freezer is free to use for guests – handy fore re-freezing your ice packs or chilling your beer/cider.

The pub has its own micro-brewery, so if you’re into your real ales it is excellent. The food is reasonable and there is a family room for campers with younger children.

The narrow gauge Welsh Highland Railway has a station between the two camping fields, so you can travel to Caernarfon in one direction and Porthmadog in the other. Tickets are a bit pricey but children under 15 travel free.

The site is very close to Snowdon if you fancy some exercise, or take the train to the summit if you prefer.

I can recommend Dragon Raiders Activity Park near Criccieth for a 45 minute taster session on an off road Segway, there is also a paintball park and the Bear Grylls Survival Academy at the same location – booking in advance is recommended.

Caernarfon Castle is worth a look and the centre of Caernarfon has a market and some nice individual shops.

What can I say about this site without sounding harsh? Not a lot!

This is by far the WORST campground that I have ever stayed in, and being ex military, I've lived in tents in Iraq and Bosnia!


The was plenty of hot water.

The beer in the pub was good, and the food was reasonably priced.

Close enough to many of the main tourist attractions of the area, with fantastic scenery.

A petrol station is approximately 2 miles way, turn right out of the site. It has a large Londis shop attached to it.

The nearest camping supply shop (Gellert) is in Bedgellert approximately 8 miles away, for anything that you may have forgotten to bring with you. It is very cheap too! Turn left out of the site.


Ground was far too soft considering that there had been hardly any rain, the previous occupants of our pitch had their car bogged in, leaving deep ruts in the ground.

The site allows large groups of visitors, so noise can be a problem. Prior to our arrival, there had been a group kicked out because of fighting at 0300, leaving behind their rubbish and tents which were cleared up 2 days after our arrival! During our stay, a large group arrived and set up a village that created a lot of noise until roughly midnight. (Not good if you have children!)

There are 2 toilet blocks, but only 1 shower block (situated on the lower field) comprising of 2 toilets and 3 showers for the entire site. The shower block was filthy and cramped, there had been a bucket of scum filled water sitting around for 3 days before it was emptied by one of the campers. The walls and shower curtains were covered in mould, due to the fact that the extractor fans did not work in either the gents or ladies block. The lights switch off after approximately 2 minutes, meaning you have to shower in the dark. On our penultimate day of 7, somebody decided to leave a special package in the shower, despite the fact that the toilet was less than 1 metre away, by the time we left, it was still there.

The toilet roll was not replenished during our stay, not that it mattered, as it was like John Wayne. (Rough, tough, and doesn't take s*#* off anyone. )

The toilet door to the gents area was beginning to stick, so even as an adult, I struggled to open it. My 5 year old boy couldn't manage it.

Unless you want to take out a mortgage, don't use the laundry facilities, 4 tokens for a 30 minute wash (which didn't clean any clothes) and 4 for the drier (which was filled with sand and just warmed the wet clothing, but didn't actually dry them!) tokens are available from the pub, at the price of £1 each! There are 2 large sinks for cleaning your dishes, you could use these to wash clothes, but you would have to take a universal plug with you as there are no plugs for any of the sinks.

There is no fence line on the lower field to stop small children from going near the deep, fast flowing river. Luckily, my kids listened to our instructions not to go near the water, but that didn't stop other kids from the top field.

There is no elsan disposal on the lower field, meaning you have to hike over the railway bridge with any waste to the other field, to empty any toilet cartridges. (Roughly 300 metres. ) the disposal point is in serious need of attention, the lid is made of rotting plywood, and is very flimsy.

There were no apparent signs of the facilities being cleaned at all, the staff in the pub were told, but obviously they didn't care. There were a few people that were so disgusted with the site, that they left after 1 night!

There are only 2 electric hook up points on the lower field (supplying 4 users) 1 by the toilet block, and one adjacent to the track by the railway entrance. If you require electric, ensure you have a long hook up so you don't have to set up too close to other tents.
