Having spoken to Mrs Valentine during the pre booking, she sounded really friendly and helpful we were really looking forward to our break on the Llyn peninsula and we received a warm reception from her and her husband on arrival. They kindly squeezed us into a gap between the many seasonal pitches.

The campsite has magnificent views over the Rivals ridgeway, a series of peaks which extends up the northern side of the peninsula and down into Pwllheli. We were fairly well protected from the wind by a high rocky bank which shelters most of the campsite. We used Wern Newydd as a base to explore Snowdonia and the beaches. This worked well but we were surprised how many miles we covered in a week!

The toilet/shower block is presently being extended, cleaned daily with slate floors but currently only has one male and one female shower costing 1 for approx 5mins. The nearest shop is a pleasant 5 min walk from the campsite.

The site was very quiet for the time of year with only a few other visiting weekenders.

I selected this site rather than a Caravan Club CL as I have found these rather basic in the past. The website promised first class facilities and friendly helpful staff. I was encouraged by the personalised letter 'looking forward to welcoming us' and assumed that the list of 29 rules to which I had to sign my agreement meant a well-run site, though I was a little surprised that I had to pay the whole amount three weeks in advance. From the moment we arrived, however, I felt the whole experience was no better than a CL, at twice the price. Firstly there were no signs indicating where we should call to report in, or any apparent provision for our arrival. I went hesitantly towards the house, was run at by two dogs which fortunately turned out to be non-aggressive, and just happened to catch the attention of the owner's daughter. She explained that her mother was unwell and could not see us, which we were sorry to hear, but feel there should be arrangements in place to cover such problems. After a very brief indication of the facilities we were left to pitch our caravan, and had no further approach from anybody for the five days we were there. Most of this time we were the only people on site, since all the rest were seasonal. The so-called 'first class' facilities consisted of a small, draughty toilet / shower block where I was not pleased to find we would have to pay extra (on top of 26 a night) for a shower (though since there were no explanatory signs in the block it took a little while to realise this). We used our caravan shower the whole time. So - facilities definitely not at all first class, no sign of friendly staff. The sting in the tail was that on our journey home we found serious damage to the side of our caravan. I concluded that this was consistent with a large object hitting it, which could well have been the parasol left outside the caravan next to us being blown in the wind.

Another cracking Easter trip to Wern Newydd and excellent weather to boot! Little had changed since last year although the new ablutions block had progressed a little.

This is the ideal tranquil location for us and we always enjoy ourselves when we visit. We made the most of the electric hook up at this time of year in the cooler evenings and that makes tenting comfortable in April.

Thanks to Maria and the team once again.

This is our second year here as seasonal campers (Caravan). This is a really child friendly site. My grandchildren love it and are out playing with other children 8-8. The site has a large bracken covered tump that is ideal for absorbing loads of children and gives opportunity for really imaginative play.

Facilities are clean and tidy with new toilet block in the pipeline.

No problem with dogs now a particular unit has left.

Because many pitches are seasonal the site never seems busy. Beautifully situated and very relaxed I would recommend to anyone.

First solo trip with our caravan. But not a journey into the unknown. We have been holidaying on the Lleyn for years. Usually camping in Abersoch. But with the big white box on the back we weren't confident negotiating the winding roads and one way system through Abersoch. So Llanbedrog seemed a good fit.

The site - idyllic setting and safe but exciting for young children. No play area didn't bother us. Plenty of room to play. The focal area is the standing stones or climbing 'the hill'.

The site is mainly seasonal pitches with big tourers and permanent awnings. This was great as most of these units were empty the week we stayed so the site was quiet.

Welfare block - always kept clean, but very small. Most visitors must have used their vans because we never had problem accessing the loos or shower. Plenty of space in the wash up. I guess old camping habits die hard, as we tend to use the site facilities rather than our creature comforts in the van.

Free Wifi - wasn't advertised but was available. I'm never sure if that is a good thing or not. I like to get way from everything but the family were happy!

Access to the site? - pretty good. Narrow road up to the site through Llanbedrog, but certainly not squeaky bum time.

Only down side on the site? dogs, we have our own although he doesn't usually travel. The real problem? Dog owners I had to get poo bags out to clean up other peoples mess. Not what you would expect. It seemed to be the seasonals who viewed the dogs on lead rule as not referring to them.

The dog control issue is the only downer, but big enough to make this not an automatic return site for us.

Local area - hints and tips

Must dos

A beer on the beach at Port Dinllean.

Body boarding at Hells mouth

Super cheap food and drink at Weatherspoons in Pwhelli

There is a hidden Lidl in Pwhelli too.

People watching and shopping in Abersoch

Bistro or an ice cream on the beach at Llanbedrog. Watch the slippery steps down from the NT carpark.

Another lovely Easter break with excellent weather. The site is well situated, very well run and maintained- mainly seasonal caravan pitches but all are excellent and we had a choice of several good positions. Great views east and south east.

Highly recommended as a quiet, relaxing and well situated friendly place to be!
