This is a lovely site at the end of Bala Lake. The campsite was very quiet and tranquil with lots of space between tents for the children to run around in. There is a river running alongside the campsite which is also great for the kids and the train stops just near the entrance. Owner was very helpful and friendly and considering it was bank holiday weekend it was very relaxing and peaceful. There is no noise policy but it didn't seem to matter as most people were quiet once it got dark and respectful of others. There is no shop on the site but Bala is only a 10 min drive along the Lake. My only real criticism is that there was only one small toilet block and if you were camping down the end of the field, it was quite a treck! There was also quite a queue in the mornings. It is also quite expensive considering the lack of facilities. Nevertheless we had a lovely time there and would consider again if we were in the area.

We had a really great time here. The site is quiet and beautiful, the owners are extremely helpful and friendly and the loos, showers and washing-up facilities are excellent, really clean with endless hot water. We had a gorgeous, spacious, flat pitch (you choose your own spot) and loved the setting, with the big stream/little river going past and sheep wondering around on the other side of it too. We hired a fire pit and bought sticks and logs from the site owners. We can recommend the local pub, for its food, drinks, small shop and friendly staff. The Bala lake train offers a great way to gently see the area and leaves from right by the site. We enjoyed gorge-walking near-by, booked at lake Bala. The only problem was Hurricane Bertha. But we still loved our visit and hope to return with calmer weather! Thanks!

Bwch Yn Uchaf is a really excellent campsite, it's a little more out of the way than some others in the area, but that is totally to it's credit.

We arrived after about a 6 hour drive up from London and originally pitched in the main field by the portaloos, but moved after a couple of days to be next to the beautiful stream that runs through the site. The people who run the campsite are absolute stars, they really can not do enough to help and to make sure you are happy with your stay. The toilets were always in immaculate condition and the same goes for the showers.

Be careful when doing your washing up, the hot water comes out extremely hot! But there is always plenty of hot water available.

Absolutely brilliant campsite, run by exactly the sort of people you would want to be running it. Can't fault it at all, will definitely be staying there again.

This was the first time we have visited this site after a last minute decision to go camping for the weekend straight from work. We had booked hookup but upon arriving, our friends were staying with non-hookup and where they were situated was just too beautiful to miss. The hookup area was mainly hard standing as the large field at the top was not in use.

I was concerned that the washing up area/showers were a bit out of the way but in actual fact it wasn't too bad and they were lovely and clean and hot water all the time. The portaloos that are in the middle were clean (possibly supplying some soap or antibacterial gel would be a good idea). I think it would be great if a more central shower block could be built.

We had a campfire on the second night and you can buy the logs and kindling on site and there is plenty to last two nights.

The river was lovely (just wish we'd taken the fishing net) and the little one had great fun making a dam.

There is a washer and dryer but as I didn't use them I don't know how much they were.

Unfortunately when it was time to leave the battery had died on the car (as well as someone else's) but it was no problem for the owners as ten minutes later they were there jump starting us.

Fantastic site, great owners. We will DEFINITELY be returning!

Just like to say easily the best campsite I have stayed on in many a year. The shower and toilet block was lovely and clean, the showers warm, lovely. The owners were more than helpful and friendly too. Campfires are allowed, the logs you buy are good value for money. , there is fishing in a gentle shallow clean river. The site is flat and just great. The views are fantastic and a short stroll to the start of the arran ridge walk. Cant wait to go back again. Also the little train in to the bustling little town of Bala is excellent. A good place for families, couples, and walkers. DOUGIE ELLIS WELSHPOOL

This was our 3rd visit and it is by far our favourite site. Gareth who runs it could not be more helpful. The site itself is lovely. Riverside flat field with a track (perfect for kids' bikes) running back to an always clean loo block. Facilities are a bit of a walk but there are portaloos along the way if you prefer and to me, location and atmosphere is so much more important!

Steam train rides from the site are a bonus and the pub in the village The Eagles Inn is reasonable and good pub grub and we were fine with lots of kids.

You can have a fire and Gareth or his son will bring you a pit and logs. There was no noise at night other than people chatting and enjoying themselves and I never felt we bothered anyone which is always a good feeling with so many children! (This visit there were 8 adults and 8 kids but I have also been as a family of 5 with an 8 week old baby)

I shall be back every year as it simply (so far) cannot be beaten for location, price, atmosphere and general good fun! We try new sites all the time but this one simply ticks all of our boxes.

I do however recommend rock pegs as ground can be tough!
