We stayed at Penrallt because of the Cool Camping review and because of its coastal camping location. You can only glimpse the sea from one field, all we had a view of was a hedge, so for me this was very disappointing - we could have been in any campsite, anywhere, there was nothing special about it. The sustainability theme is nice, the toilets and showers were fine, and the proximity to the coastal walk is lovely. We walked to a beach which was about 20 minutes walk away. On the way we saw seals and a cormorant's nest. The beach was horrible grey sand with loads of seaweed. There was nothing wrong with the campsite, perhaps my expectations were too high. I would be unlikely to go back.

We love this site and think that it is as near to perfect as you can get. There are several level fields of different sizes and the pitches are generously spaced. The grass is kept in very good order and the higgledy piggledy service buildings are kept spotlessly clean by the owners, never running out of loo rolls or hand wash. 2 a day gets you a fridge, and you can freeze blocks and charge phones for free. The sea is a 5 minute walk away and 15 minutes gets you to a quiet rocky cove where the seals visit. Pete the owner is a dude, laid back, good natured and helpful. Showers are great (20p bargain) and the site is central for loads of fantastic walks and beaches on the beautiful Lleyn peninsula. We just can't understand why people are prepared to pay 4 times as much for pitches on crowded, over regulated stuffy sites near Abersoch with views of the next caravan.

I camped here for a week with my husband and young son and we will be returning.

The owners are very friendly, and Pete helped my husband put the tent up and even parked his Landrover in front of it for two days as a wind break! I use an electric wheelchair and again they were very helpful, providing free battery charging for me.

The playground is great - an old hollowed out boat, buoys hung from a frame and tire and rope swings, plus a sandpit. The kids are also allowed (encouraged) to climb the trees, so my son loved it, as did the older children on the site.

The site itself is well cared for, grass is short and fields are separate so someone wanting a quiet weekend could camp away from the family field.

The facilities are basic but clean and plentiful - there are several showers and 6+ toilets so we never had to queue. They were cleaned regularly and yes, there are a few daddy long legs and moths, but this is a site that has won awards for WILDLIFE so I'm not sure what people expect!

With regards to wildlife, you can watch seals in the cove that is a few minutes walk along the coastal path that the campsite is on, and we often watched buzzards while sat outside the tent with a cup of tea.

Within walking distance are several beaches and if you drive there are numerous beaches and castles to visit. We stayed for a week and still have new things to see when we return.

If you want a Caravan Club 5* site, this isn't for you. It is a fairly basic site with no shops or arcades, but if you enjoy real camping and want to get away from it all then I highly recommend you give it a try.

I love this site, its basic but brilliant. Everything is recycled and so different and unique. You can hire fridges which is great, charge you phones. Nice and quiet. Owners are wonderful and helpful. Lovely walk along the coast, the sunsets are amazing. Not overcrowded and very relaxing place to be. Plenty of space for the children to play and plenty of facilities for the size of the camp. Will definitely visit again.

We stayed at this site for 5 nights. On arrival the owners were friendly and pleasant. We had planned to pitch in the family field so as to be near the play area but this turned out to just be a swing and not really suitable for our 3 year old so we asked to pitch in the sea view field instead.

It is quite special seeing a strip of blue sea just above the hedge! The owner was happy to give advice on the weather forecast as we were a bit unsure about wind coming straight off the sea.

The site was nice and quiet although the pitches were nearly all occupied in the field over the weekend. From the site you can walk through the grass maze and look in the rather unusual shed and then walk along the cliff tops and look for seals.

The facilities were basic but cleaned every day, I would recommend using the showers off the family field as there is more space and an electric point for using a hairdryer etc

The Llyn Peninsula is very pretty and we haven't been to a beach yet that we didn't like.

First impressions of this site is that it is well kept, very clean. We were on the sea view pitch with ehu which we were shown to by the owner. It was quite windy at times given the distance from the sea. The facilities are basic but clean and as it was quiet when we were there, more than sufficient for our requirements, with 4 toilets/showers and 3 washing up areas. Payment is by 20p metres as the wash up hot water takes a while to warm up, could be a queue problem when the site is busy,

A five minute walk and great sea views saw the seals swimming in the bay. A twenty minute walk or 10 minute drive and short walk takes you to a long sandy beach with very few people around

The site makes a good base for touring, went to Pwllheli market on Wednesday and topped up with food from the supermarkets. Drove down to the peninsula, some great sea views and lovely countryside

Would certainly visit the area again.
