This is our third visit to penrallt and won`t be our last, the campsite is great, the kids love it and so do we. Its got everything you need for a campsite and Pete the owner couldn`t be more helpful. It was our first trip out with t5 campervan and teardrop trailer, Pete`s first words were 'WOW', he loved it, (likes quirky things, goes with the site). Site is flat, so good for van and trailer, site was full due to bank holiday weekend, but didn`t have to queue for showers, all facilities are clean and showers only 20p!, and site fees very reasonable. Owner good with kids, seen him fixing one of the kids bikes, close to coastal path were you can see the seals playing in the sea, awesome! Other campers friendly and have arranged to meet up next year back at penrallt with one by were we were who`s daughter made really good friends with ours, see you next year Pete :-)

El Niño years will always bring mixed weather. The second night we had southwesterly gusts over 40mph. The exposed sea view pitch offered scant protection from the wind. Our tent being rather tall was acting more like a sail. The owner of the site, quite happily lent us his landrover to act as a rather expensive windbreak. This is what makes the campsite so attractive, no fuss, honest, facilities adequate, scenery perfect.

This campsite will appeal to those who really want to camp as it was meant to be. The facilities are perfectly adequate, the local knowledge is expertly and passionately passed on, and the marine environment is truly amazing. My three kids were never bored, the small play area was suitable, but the beaches and coves are the real attraction and kept them busy for days.

The car was hardly used, except to top up the liquid reserves from a local shop, as everything you could want (I. E. The environment) was/is within walking distance.

If you want luxury then there are other sites offering more, if you want heated swimming pools and extensive children's play areas then find somewhere else. If however, you prefer exploring fabulous and rich coastlines then this is a perfect base.

Very good campsite. A large field, that was flat and well cut, excellent for tents. Toilets and showers where not new, but they were clean. You could rent fridges and you could keep freeze your cooler ice blocks for free. The owner was very helpful, and the cost very reasonable. I did not walk to the beach, but I think you could

Reach the sea with a short walk. You could watch the sunset over the sea from the campsite

Lovely, friendly site, with green credentials in a beautiful coastal location. There is direct access to the cliffs and coastal path, the area is a haven for wildlife. This was our second visit and we will be returning. On this occasion we saw several seals, Skylarks, Chough and many butterflies. We also had a late dip and snorkel in the crystal clear sea a short walk along the cliffs.

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.
