Next to the beach with private access directly from site. All the facilities associated with a holiday park and nicely presented with a touch of class. The park is family run, and this is evident in the little touches and presentation which is often overlooked by bigger chains. An indoor swimming pool, amusement arcade, bar, takeaway selling what I have to say is the nicest battered fish I have had in some time - done to perfection! The ambience of the site is one of well kept tidiness with neatly cut grass, hydrangeas and palm trees.

There are two toilet blocks, one of which is a newer shower, wash and toilet facility with music playing and big shower cubicles. Key fob entry to the facilities (20 returnable deposit at check in). This helps to keep the facilities for campsite residents only as there are a few sites neighbouring. Staff are very friendly.

The touring pitches are fully serviced with water, waste water & elsan point, tv point on each pitch. My first experience of a serviced pitch and it is a luxury not to have to fill and empty the water containers. (I bought the accessories required in advance but there is a caravan accessory shop in Barmouth should you forget something) We really enjoyed our stay here and will return.

Not cheap, but very nice.

What's bad?

The only downside is the main shower block closes at 9pm until 7am each day. I think on a summers day after a long day spent at the beach, trying to get showered before it shuts can be a rush, 10 pm would be better. The other toilet only block remains open 24 hours. This is the only reason I've not given 10 out of 10 overall.

We spent 2 nights there last week, excellent site, spotless facilities, friendly bar and reception staff, a fish and chip shop bar on site, very reasonable prices, also a snack bar attached to the arcade. You can go in the swimming pool for one hour included in the price of your pitch. A 5 minute walk to the beach. The only fault I can comment on is that if your pitched on the grassed area down the bottom it's quite a long walk to the chemical disposal point and washing up area, they could do with another facilities area for tents/motor homes and caravans.

Excellent site, we did visit when the kids had gone back to school, but I would imagine that it would be well organised when busy.

Very friendly and professional receptionist.

The beach is metres from the site In fact everything you need for a few days break is within arms reach.

Very clean facilities, we really enjoyed our stay, and would visit again.

The staff even tow your caravan in for you.

Negatives. We bought fish and chips. The chips were frozen chips!

First class site - just returned from a long weekend, the camping pitch was non electric which was fine, the site is lovely and flat, and it's literally 2 mins to the beach. The site is run by electronic entry so the only cars on there are people stopping there.

The facilities are first class, kept spotlessly clean and have a music feed into them. Although there were many tents there it was still spacious and quiet.

Think it's summed up in the fact that we went to the shop on the Sunday morning for a paper, when we returned a dog had left a mess on the road. Within 15 mins a site van turned up to clear it up. Fantastic housekeeping and shows the pride they take in the site.

Visited this site midweek but in glorious sunshine so that made a big difference.

A family oriented site, with a big influx on Friday night of regulars did not detract from a very clean and tidy site, well run and maintained.

We enjoyed the stay, and the dog especially liked the beach, which unlike many in the area had no restrictions which was a bonus!

Strange arrangement with the pool, such limited hours, but as we were virtually the only users we really did not mind!

Love it love it love it here!

We come to barmouth a lot but this site is a cut above the rest, staff very friendly, facilities a beautifully kept everything you need is on your doorstep.

Plenty for the kids and adults alike to do, the beach is a stone throw away (great for tiring them out).

Barmouth centre about 3miles away has everything you need.

Overall I could not fault it one bit!

Just book in advance as it does get booked up VERY quick.
