Nice site close to the village and its pubs. Showers and toilets were ok. We got the feeling though that these owners were trying to extract as much money from us as was possible. The site fee was 28 for which we got a hard standing and electric but no water as it wasn't turned on we then had to pay 5 for wifi which ran out after a couple of hours. There were coin machines for hair dryers, irons, hot water, electric sockets and at 28 a pitch plus the 5 for internet you would have thought these things could be provided free. We had just come from a site which had the same site wide wifi system and it was free. A good site spoilt by the overpricing and exploitation. Even 15 minutes tumble dryer was 1

I was extremely pleased with the campsite itself as well as the service provided. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, they showed us around and informed us of everything we needed to know, they gave us a brief overview of the area and activities nearby and when needed they were always on hand to answer any of our questions. The site was immaculate and had a fantastic view. The toilet/shower blocks were always clean and left open all night. The only criticism we would have is with the family in the tent next to us who tended to be very noisy, even at night, but this was down to them not the campsites. Outside of the site we found a particularly lovely restaurant/pub/hotel which served amazing food - cross foxes. This was just a 5 minute journey from the campsite. Everywhere you go has lots of footpaths and walks to follow. Just a 10 minute car journey to 2 beaches. One being Barmouth which is a quirky seaside town with shops, fairground, food etc.

Overall, wonderful place. Absolutely stunning, clean, peaceful. Would definitely recommend it, especially to those who like to walk, relax and enjoy a nice view.

Just spent 2 nights in a two person pod. Normally die hard tent campers we found this to be luxury! Very high quality, warm and spotlessly clean as are all of the site facilities. The pods are sited on the highest level with lovely views across the town and surrounding countryside. There is a private loo for pod users which saves the walk down to the main block, much appreciated during the night.

No lighting at the top of the site which we like.

Easy access to the town and walks

One of the best sites we have used and compares with many European sites which are generally better than British ones.

Hope to visit again

Lovely camp site, been coming here off and on for years, new owners now and they seem great, good luck to them. The site is wonderful for kids in their summer hols, you feel safe with the play area, good facilities, not a large site but big enough with tents, statics, caravans & motorhomes, lovely views and terrific walks up hill behind campsite. No shop on site except for gas, but really only a short trip from shop in village or to the towns of either barmouth or porthmadog for your big shop.

Clean well-maintained site 10-15 minutes walk from the centre of Dolgellau. The site has several terraced areas with four for tents. Extensive scenic views of the hills on the other side of the valley to the North East. Rather exposed, so suggest pitching tent appropriate to the direction of the prevailing wind if strong winds are forecast.

Plenty of places to eat and drink in Dolgellau, including at least two cafes serving breakfast as well as restaurants, takeaways and four bars serving Real Ale. Co-op supermarket not far from campsite and Spar shop with Post Office in town.

Ideal base for walkers with walks of various levels of difficulty in the area; from a gentle stroll along the riverside to a strenuous walk to the top of Cader Idris which overlooks the town.

Several bus services go from Eldon Square in the centre of town. The bus service is good, but timetables are not published, so not always easy to find. Copies are kept in the Tourist Information Centre but suggest printing any timetables you are likely to use before you go. These can be found at https://www. Gwynedd. Gov.

We have just spent the one night at Tan-y-fron to break a rather long journey. The chap at reception was very welcoming and showed us to our pitch from which we had lovely views up the valley. The facilities were fine, if a little confined and the water pressure was rather low, but were clean, so no real complaints.

Although the pitches are terraced, there are some steep and tight sections to get to and from them.

All in all a pretty reasonable site, but rather expensive for the one night.
