Stopped here last weekend and have to say the guy that was the warden for that day could not have been any more helpful, he even took the time to remember my name. It's not often that you get that sort of personal touch.

The showers and toilets are limited to two gents and I assume the same for the ladies ! however this wasn't a problem when we visited and it was nice to have a 'proper' shower as opposed to one where you had to press button every two minutes to get water and both the toilets and showers were very clean.

The site also represents great value for money so we would most certainly visit again.

Sadly our visit to this well reviewed site was not as positive as many others. We found the site to be poorly run with basic facilities and a terrible approach lane. The booking system appears to be ad hoc and disorganised with a very flippant attitude to enquiries. The approach to the site requires you to ring and arrange to be met by a warden at the bottom of the lane to ensure that no one meets you on the narrow single track lane. So getting booked in and arriving at the site is made trickier than need be. The wardens seemed friendly but also seem to have excessive rules posted around the site. We were told to pich where we liked in the field, very relaxed we thought, and then when set up instructed to move as they didn't like the way our unit was positioned. We returned from our visit extremely angry as our caravan had been damaged by rocks protruding into the lane as we left the site, the caravan following also had damage. If the staff could make the approach safe instead of enforcing petty rules then they would demonstate a basic knowledge of how to run a site successfully. As it is we have a hefty repair bill and wish that we had never set foot on the poorly managed place.

We have just returned from a stay at Nant Y Big, and it was excellent. We are a family of 5 - 2 adults, three children (9, 6, and 4). We actually arrived a day late (dreadful traffic on the A55, coupled with a road closure meant that we had to stay in a guest house in Rhyll on the Friday night). The campsite owners very kindly did not charge us for the Friday night, even though it was a bank holiday weekend. The campsite is extremely spacious - we stayed in the 'panoramic' field which, unsurprisingly, had an amazing view (we saw dolphins in the bay on one of the evenings) and I think there was probably an average of 50 metres between each tent / group of people which meant we had the luxury of not being woken up in the morning by other people passing by. The beach is a 5 minute walk away (down quite a steep hill) and it is beautiful - a mix of rock pools, sand, pebbles. The facilities are basic but adequate - although perhaps my only criticism is that the hot water in the dishwashing area is only luke warm (it's hot in the free showers though). The campsite is near enough to civilisation (Abersoch - circa 5 min drive) to be convenient, but situated in a way that makes you feel you are fabulously remote. The wardens were all extremely helpful and friendly, ensuring you felt welcomed and relaxed. All in all a truly fabulous campsite. Lots of space, amazing views, gorgeous beach.

If you want a quieter more peaceful site, a few minutes drive from abersoch and 10 minute walk downhill to stunning sandy beach, then nant y big is perfect! Three fields in a row, with first two seasonal s, we had the the whole grass touring/tent field all to ourselves due to high wind forecast. Was actually sunny and caught the sun on beach! No shop but spar few mins away. Tight entrance, single track approach, but owner met us as I phoned ahead which calmed my nerves. Excellent service for worried tourer!. Fantastic friendly warden. Only downside is possibly only one shower block but we had no issues. Beach felt almost private to site and was glorious when tide was out. Yes it's a walk up/ downhill but our 6 & 9 year kids didn't complain. All in all just fantastic and will return.

Just returned from 4 nights at Nant-Y-Big camp site. The site is clean, well laid out and the staff and wardens were fantastic. The facilities were excellent also - very clean, warm and again well laid out. The real jems of this site however are the views afforded from the top field and the beach just 5 minutes walk away. Absolutely stunning. Five minute drive and you're in Abersoch but we walked along the tops and dropped down onto the golf course one evening which took just under an hour and gave us some great views of Abersoch beach.

Criticism? only one. The lane to the site is very narrow and if you're in a motor home and meet something coming the other way it can be a bit hairy.

We will definitely be back though as we really enjoyed our time here well done to all concerned.

This was our second camping trip and now we are hooked!

There are three different campgrounds, they only have electric in the caravan and family area but we wanted a view of the beach so went for the “Panoramic” campground.

The view was “Panoramic” and the beach was even better with interesting rock-pools at one end and the beautiful sandy beach at the other.

Nice quiet site with very friendly campers and plenty of space. The toilets and showers are in quite old portocabins, but the showers are lovely and hot with no time-limit and free! The toilets do feel very far away when it is raining, but in fairness we could have camped closer.

The weather was changeable like on our trip at the beginning of the month, but when the sun came out it made it worth putting up with the rain (not the best year to start camping). As we were newbies the warden let us know when the wind was picking up and explained the weather forecast that they display at the office (small caravan!), so we moved near to a wall on our third day and all was good.

The coast walk past the islands to Abersoc is lovely and we saw hundreds more rabbits. There are plenty of cafes and pubs for lunch but we went for good old fish and chips. While there we booked what turned out to be quite a wet fishing trip, but on the upside it did provided Mackerel for our disposable barby, and some great shots of inquisitive seals.

Our first camping trip was not to a coastal site. After visiting this great area I’m sure there’s a good chance we will be back and its likely that we will hunt out coastal sites from now on.
