Site in lovely spot but food not up to much. Pub also had no atmosphere at all and seemed more like a social club. I quite liked the microbrewery ale but other half didn't, t. Showers across the bridge over the railway line. Basic but adequate

I have very mixed views about this campsite. Our first night at the site was possibly the worst night camping I have ever had in 40 years. But the rest of our stay once we had moved pitches was quite nice.

The pitch we were given initially was right next to the main road into the area. Although not a very busy road, tractors and lorries ploughed down it and the tent billowed every time a vehicle went past. During the night this wasn't great as our heads were only about 3 metres from the road. On the other side of us was a fence and on the other side of it, 2 cockerels and 3 small dogs that yapped the entire night. We got very little sleep. I think it a bit of an insult that the owners of the site could expect anyone to sleep here.

The area is very scenic but this corner of the site was under trees, quite dark and had no view. We quickly realised that we would have to pack the whole tent up into the car and ask to move pitches the following morning.

Luckily, even though it was bank holiday weekend, we were able to move pitches when the pub opened at 11am. The site has two fields - one either side of the railway line. We moved to the field further away from the road. But this field is very boggy and a number of vehicles had obviously been stuck in it shortly before we arrived. We found a spot on the railway embankment that was slightly sloping but not boggy and enjoyed the rest of our trip.

The facilities are fairly basic which is a shame. The main toilet block is not very old but has not been maintained. We saw no evidence of it being cleaned during our 5 day stay so it was quite dirty and in need of some deep cleaning and redecoration. The washing up area has space for lots of information about the area, leaflets etc. But there was barely any.

The pub was OK - the beer was good but there were a couple of large and very noisy family groups who intimidated the rest of the customers. It was very disappointing that staff did not intervene and ask them to have a bit more respect for their other customers.

Having the railway come right through the middle of the site is brilliant and our toddler loved watching the trains come through. But it is an expensive trip out (well over 25 for a return to the far end of the line) so it's worth bearing this in mind if you are visiting.

This area of north Wales is great - but there isn't much within walking distance of the site which means you are always in the car.

Overall, the site has a lot of potential and it's a shame it isn't better maintained. If we were visiting the area again I would not stay here but would look for somewhere with better facilities and views.

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.

We used the camping facilities at Snowdonia park campsite and enjoyed a few reasonably priced drinks in the pub however we can't comment on the food as we did not eat there. We were generally very happy with the current site however there were a few pros and cons which you can see below:


Quiet clean campsite

We had the luxury of the entire lower field to ourselves (group of 8 so maybe they wanted to keep us out of the way!)

A river running beside which a few of us took a dip in (yes, it was very cold!)

The ladies toilets and showers were in a decent condition, as you expect in the campsite

Very close to one of the trails up mount snowdon

Friendly groundsman

Freezer in the laundry room (no fridge)

Laundry room with a plug socket and sink for washing of bowls et cetera

Train station on site

Lots of leaflets in the pub to give you ideas of different things to do in and around the area


The laundry and plug sockets are operated by token rather than included in your stay, which you can purchase at the bar for 1 pound each, when we asked how long each token lasted for with the plug socket the answer was that they didn't know, we subsequently found that this lasted about 20 minutes

The token machine above the plug socket meant that if your plug extends upwards as many phone chargers do it won't actually fit in the socket, meaning that you can't charge anything with that sort of plug socket, so be sure to bring an extension cable if you have any devices like that.

The men's toilets were reportedly a little untidy, with a variety of deceased and living arachnids sharing the space (not the case in the ladies which were fine)

The only other point to note was when pitching our tents we found that in some areas the ground was very rocky, so be sure to bring a mallet to stake the tent pegs in as you may have difficulty otherwise.

Would definitely stay again.

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.
