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.

This campsite is a real gem on the Welsh coastline! We loved, loved, loved it!

We arrived, harassed and tired after a 5. 5 hour cross-country drive. Bryn (the site owner) offered to take over and drove our caravan to our pitch and sited it for us. Amazing service!

The site is well-maintained and the team work very hard to keep everywhere clean and tidy. The facilities block was spotless with two huge family showers and plenty of single showers as well. A couple of modesty cubicles, with washbasins, would have been good, but that is a minor point. And I don't really understand why the block closes at night when access is controlled through a (monitored) key fob.

The site is right on the beach and the kids had a brilliant time rockpooling and building sandcastles and waiting for the tide to wash them away. And the sea is shallow and great for children to paddle and swim in. Hours and hours of free fun!

The site shop is well-stocked and not over-priced. The nearest supermarket we found was a Co-op in Barmouth, which was fine. Larger supermarkets are further afield. I did see an ASDA delivery van doing the rounds in the area too.

We didn't eat at Henry's - we were rather put off by the staff sitting out front and smoking! Sorry - but personally that really is an issue for me and detracted from the overall ambience and ethos of the rest of the site.

The site is a good base for exploring the local area. We had some great days out, combined with great days doing nothing!

We are definitely planning to come back here and have another lovely holiday! It's a real get-away-from-it-all place! Lovely!

1st visit to site but regular to the Barmouth area.

Arrival - Firstly, you enter the grounds via an excellently maintained drive way & site is well signed with plenty of passing points. The site state you cannot arrive until 12pm and you need to depart by 11. 30am which does help.

Reception were very friendly from the moment you book including arrival and throughout stay.

Pitch - Hardstanding for caravan & awning and at least 1 car with plenty of grass area to sit out on etc. Condition of touring field is very well maintained. Every pitch is fully serviced including aerial point.

Site - Toilet facilities are entered via key fob and were immaculate, their is direct entrance to the beach, pool on site with free admission with booking facility, site also has washing up area, toilet waste point and launderette. We used the shop and was always well stocked. Very friendly staff.

Entertainment - The pub next to reception (Henrys) offers food and also has a canopied outdoor section to sit when the weather is good. There is also an arcade and take away with a variety of food.

To conclude the condition of the site is a credit to the owners and despite the site being full at the start of the 6 weeks school break it never seemed busy due to the peaceful nature of the touring fields. We had a problem out of hours with one of the toilets and the warden came and sorted this straight away - we have visited other sites whereby you don't even have a contact number out of hours.

Would we re visit - already booked October half term.
