Value for Money Site, I doubt you would find better for the price.
The Camp site is situated about 1. 5 miles past Aberdaron along a narrow road, there are passing areas but you would be wise to watch what is coming towards you, visibility along this road is good.
The camp site is roomy and the pitches are quite big enough, the EHU is a maximum of 6 amps, so you wont be able to use your electric kettle and toaster at the same time.
It has a nice little cafe, the food is good. The owners are friendly, welcoming and they keep the campsite in a lovely clean condition. There are only 2 male sit down loos and 4 urinals and 3 ladies loos, 'a bit of a rush in the AM'. 4 showers two of which take 20p and two taking 50p, the showers were clean and tidy. It is a dog friendly site, but your dog must stay on a lead. You are very close to the tip of the LLen Peninsula, a 15 minute walk away, the views are stunning. There are many little beaches and coves close by, but most will need a little hike to get to them. Aberdaron has a lovely long sandy beach with a few restaurants and gift shops and even a pizza takeaway, if taking your children to the beach do remember that this is the Irish Sea, 'its Cold', however the water is shallow I did note a few hardy people swimming in it. So all in all a very nice long weekend, nice camp in a lovely area, we will be going back at some point in the not too distant future. If bringing your little ones with you, be prepared to bring bats and balls and play with them.
We spent 4 nights at this site at the very end of July and really liked it. We were lucky with the weather, which helps!
The campsite is amazingly flat for this part of the country and there was lots of room in the overflow or new camping field we were on. Nearer the toilet block it was a bit busier (the caravans are here) but still a pretty quiet site. It was a bit of a trek to the loos but we managed.
There is a really good little cafe here and I have to say I was particularly impressed with the cafetiere coffee! We also had the cooked breakfast one day which was great. They sell milk (semi only) and a few baked goods but it is not a shop as such. What was really amazing was the price. £10 per night for a large family tent with 2 adults and 2 teenagers!
The toilets and showers were very clean and well stocked with loo paper. There are either 20p or 50p showers, which is fine. My only comment would be that 2 basins is not enough in the ladies. There are 3 loos, which is barely enough, but there needs to be at least 3 basins too.
Dishwashing was fine too, though there is only one draining board for 2 sinks. But there is another dish sink nearby with draining. And plenty of hot water.
NB. Whist they have obviously extended the number of showers there is no disabled toilet yet despite what the web site says. We only just managed and to be fair the lady owner was very honest that they had meant to get it done for this year but hadn't managed, she says it will be done for next year. There is an accessible shower I think.
We stayed at Ty Newydd Farm for 8 nights in July 2012. The day before we arrived there had been torrential downpours in the area and we were worried about what state the camping field would be in - no need to worry, the field was incredibly well drained. Getting to the site involves driving along some narrow country lanes - not a problem but just something to be aware of, particularly if you are towing.
We were greeted by the owner, on arrival and told to basically pitch wherever we liked. The camp site was quiet while we were there - at the peak there were 9 units on our field, plus some occupants on seasonal pitches. However, even if it is busy, the pitches are generous and I don't think you would feel cramped.
Our weather was mixed and we did have a considerable amount of rain but the field only really looked a bit waterlogged one morning and that was after 5 hours of torrential - and I do mean torrential! - rain the previous night.
We paid £10 per night for our pitch, plus a couple of pounds for EHU and £1 for the dog - I thought this was incredibly good value. The facilities were basic but always clean - the showers took 20p pieces but we found that OH needed 40p and I needed 60p for a decent shower including washing my hair etc. However, given that the site was so cheap, I didn't have a problem with this.
We had breakfast at the cafe on the site one day and it was lovely, and good value for money.
The location is beautiful - views of the sea from the field - it can get a little windy but it didn't cause us any problems. The site is very quiet, no club house or playground, but loads of room in the middle of the field for children to play.
It is quite a long walk to the village, I would say really that other than walking the coastal path you need to drive to get anywhere. This didn't bother us but it is something to think about. Aberdaron is a tiny village - there is a Spar and another shop, but these are expensive and not particularly well stocked, so I would advise stocking up elsewhere before heading back to the campsite. We ate in one of the pubs, The Ship, a couple of times and it was lovely. Excellent food, a warm welcome, and dogs were welcome in the bar area. We didn't get such a warm welcome at the other pub in the village, so they didn't get our custom!
The beach at Aberdaron is lovely, and there is both a dog free area and a large area where dogs are allowed. There are lots of lovely places to visit in the area, but just be aware that Aberdaron is at least a 20 minute drive from Abersoch and 30 minutes from Pwllheli - again, this didn't bother us but it wouldn't suit everyone.
Overall, we had a lovely stay at Ty Newydd and would definitely return. It is a reasonably basic site which offers clean facilities, incredible value for money and a quiet, relaxing holiday. Would we visit again? Without a doubt :-)
The access is via a country lane in a quiet area of the Lleyn peninsula. On arrival we had a warm welcome by the staff, the pitches were adequate in size and level and for the pitch and EHU it was £12 per night, good value. There are two shower blocks (we used the new block 50p a go)which were kept clean in the main and there seems to be lots of return visitors here.
The site could do with a kids area perhaps.
Downside? well, a few chavs turned up and we heard arguments, threats and swearing between these on one night across the field, they should have been thrown off but were not. This could've happened anywhere on any site as unfortunately that's some people for you,
The site was fine but would probably try another the next time as there are loads in the area.
