What a gem this campsite is! We have just spent 10 nights in the most beautiful setting on the edge of snowdonia. The lovely small town of Dolgellau is 5 minutes by car and Barmouth, with a superb beach and sand dunes is about 25 minutes away. The campsite itself is very well kept, the grass is mown often and the toilets and showers cleaned daily. Dogs were welcome and there are plenty of walks to exercise them. It is a working farm and my daughter loved all the sheep and chickens ect. The views of Cader Idris from both the campsite and the nearby precipice walk were breathtaking The owners were lovely and their knowledge of places worth a visit was invaluable. All in all we had a fantastic holiday and we will definitely be going back next year.

The site has a lovely situation, half way up the side of a valley and lying alongside a quiet minor road (that probably carries about 2 cars an hour). The lady who runs it seemed very friendly. Though the site as a whole is on a slope there are some tent pitches which are flat. It was fairly quiet when we went but I wouldn't like to go when it was busy as the site is rather small and it must feel very cramped. The toilet / shower block looks grim from the outside but inside it is more modern and is cleaned regularly. However, the floor of one of the two gents toilets always seemed flooded when we were there. The showers could do with more hooks to hang clothes when you're showering (one shower had one, the other none).

We visited Llwyn yr Helm over the easter weekend, bit of a wriggle to get to and had to borrow a rock from a wall as a leveller. But Oh so worth it!

Made to feel very welcome from the outset, owner even helped us move one of the many picnic benches so the kids could do their colouring while we sorted the awning.

Very clean, safe, fab views, great showers.

Can't wait to go back, peace and quiet is addictive.

After a last minute booking panic, we (myself, my partner, our friends and the dogs) were kindly emailed to inform us that they had two pitches available with hook-up for the August Bank Holiday Weekend.

We arrived on-site and were warmly greeted by the owner – she informed us that they had kept both pitches alongside each other and to pop in when it was convenient.

The views are spectacular and facilities are very clean, albeit basic. There are plenty of local walks, a great pub that welcomes dogs (The Four Crosses) and shops within 5 minutes drive.

We will definitely be going back next summer to sample the views and calm atmosphere of the site (lets hope the sun shines for us this time!)

As first time campers, we were very pleased with Llwyn Yr Helm campsite. The owners were very helpful and friendly, offering suggestions of things to do and places to see.

For a tent and two people, it was only £10/night, which was very reasonable. The toilet and shower facilities were always clean and available (2 gents, 2 ladies, 2 showers - mixed) and showers were 2x20p for a 6 minute shower.

The campsite was well situated - only a 5 min drive to Dolgellau town and 20 min drive to Barmouth. There isn't really much to do in Dolgellau, however it does have some quaint shops. Barmouth has more to offer with the sandy beach, cafes. We went on an excellent sea fishing trip with Viking (book in the Viking shop in Barmouth and pop a deposit down) - it was fantastic, it was £18/person for 2 hours, or £25/person for 4 hours. We went on the early morning trip for 2 hours and caught 10 mackerel! You get to keep what you catch, which was a bonus.

We'd definitely recommend it and will probably be back very soon!

A very friendly greeting and a wonderful campsite, we spent a while chatting on arrival and were given several tips for visiting places around the area. We were told we could pick anywhere we wanted to pitch our tent. We picked the lower field against a stone wall sheltered by a tree. We were only seconds from a water tap and less than 2 minutes walk from the toilet block which was in the next field. This was impressively clean and full stocked. There was a separate shower room with a single shower, toilet and basin in it. A washing up sink was also located at either end of the toilet block.

No extra charges were made for our very large tent or the trailer we have.

On our last night it was horrendous weather and we popped up to the office to ask where the nearest takeaway was - we were told nowhere was open in Brithdir on a Sunday night, a little later on the owner drove down in his 4x4 and offered to drive us to Dolgellau to collect one! We were extremely impressed with the service.

We loved the campsite and the area and were extremely impressed with the care and attention of the owners - we will definitely return if we visit that area again !
