Pretty little site away from the hustle & bustle but only a 5 minute drive to Bala.

One of the cleanest toilet/shower blocks, if not the best we've ever visited! Absolutely spotless and well stocked.

This was reflected throughout the site.

The site also has a lovely chilled, relaxed feel to it and nothing was too much trouble for the owner, Jean, who was very helpful with recommending and booking us somewhere to eat.

Wifi available, which was a relief after contending with the lack of phone signal throughout Wales and was just a £2 contribution to the air ambulance, which we thought was a wonderful idea.

All in all a fabulous little find.

A second wonderfully peaceful visit to Tyn Cornel-and we will keep going back now as it's such a lovely site and you feel off the beaten trck but still near to towns if you need supplies. Everywhere was spotless again-toilets and showers were immaculate and Wardens Nick and Caroline were so helpful and very friendly. The grass was trimmed short which was excellent for pitching the new tent and was well worth paying a little extra for the secluded pitch. Excellent views and lovely walks. If Carlsberg did campsites this would be it!

My family and I spent a wonderful 6 days at this campsite in a tent with hook-up. The owners were lovely and helpful, giving us many helpful ideas of days out with the children. We had mixed weather, not nearly as bad as forecast, but the pitch remained well drained. The facilities were scrupulously clean, with plenty of free hot water showers. A fridge and freezer were provided for the guests in the covered washing up area. The campsite although plagued by midges, was wonderfully quiet. The silence was punctuated by the cries of a large bird of prey (buzzard?) and the soothing sound of the river. At night when the clouds lifted, we were rewarded with beautiful views of the stars and even saw the International Space Station whizz past one night. There is no playground for the children, but a recreation field is provided to play on. This was more than enough for my children aged 5, 7 and 8. There is a small shop selling very basic supplies on site, including that essential Avon SSS spray!

There is much to do in the area. We climbed Snowdon from Pen-y-pass, spent a day on the beach at Black Rock Sands, went to Beddgelert, went down the Llechwedd slate mine at Blauenau Ffestiniog, went to Chirk Castle and walked over Pontcysllte aqueduct. The walk down the river from the campsite is beautiful. Bala is a bustling town with all the supplies you need for a week long camping trip, with small supermarkets and pubs.

We will definitely return to this lovely campsite.

We are novice campers and our location was chosen due to our daughter competing in a slalom competition which was close to the camp site.

We were greeted by two very friendly ladies who told us everything we needed to know about the area.

The toilet/shower block was immaculate, pride was taken in keeping it clean and tidy and this reflected across the whole site.

Loved that we had access to a fridge/ freezer and could borrow ice blocks while ours were chilling.

The washing up area was once again immaculate.

A short walk from our pitch took us to the White Water Centre.

A very good weekend was had by all and following this experience we would definitely return to this relaxing, quiet and well looked after site.

I stayed with my girlfriend and family on this brilliant site for a long weekend, and can honestly say I have never seen such clean toilets and showers! The owners and wardens were kind and friendly, and made campers feel welcome. It is very central to lots of attractions and easy to get to. We had an amazing drive completely around Snowdon, had a BBq, crabbed from the quay in Caernarfon and walked around Betwsycoed. We also went to Morfa Nefyn where there is a pub right on the beach which you can walk to from a clifftop carpark. I would definitely recommend this site, especially if you want to do anything on the river.

If I was a site owner I would be head hunting the current wardens whose contract finishes October. They are so friendly, helpful and very hard working. Great ambassadors for this site which is immaculately maintained, very well organised, quiet and very relaxing. Also great for dogs on the excellent dog run. A short walk to the white water rapids is quite a treat. Toilets are immaculate. Nearest village is Bala which is very busy but great for cafes, restaurants etc and local shops

Management response: Thank you for your very nice comments, we sell on being clean and quiet and are always happy when people appreciate what we provide.

Our wardens are friends as well as helpers and we would like them to stay, but the work is hard and they really want to move on to pastures new to see and do different things, so it is not our decision that they go!! Perhaps you could persuade them to stay for us when you return?

Hope the op went well"

Regards from Tyn Cornel
