Visited this lovely campsite with family in other tents across the site. Lovely welcome, nice, clean facilities with hot water. Good play area and games room for kids and the local pub was only a short walk away either along river and across field or around the road. Food was good too. Trip on train to waterfalls was great with very friendly train folk. Tywyn had free parking and a good co op. Llandovey not far with lovely beach.
Camp area was seen to every day by owners and got all kids evolved which was wonderful.
Will be visiting again, but what campers should be told about is the resident badger! Whereas there are supposedly signs around the reception and pot washing area about a badger I did not see these. Campers need to be told there is a badger who visits by night and will get into tents where there is food and will do what he an to get to it, All campers need to do is ensure no food in tent or bin bags. Sit out late evening with a torch and capture a sight of the badger, nick named smudger.
Will definitely use this site again! What a great site, surrounded by gorgeous scenery, and little Talyllyn railway runs alongside the site - great to see little steam train chugging past every now and again (kids LOVED it!). Site is relatively quiet, big pitches, very clean toilet/shower facilities, lots hot water (like the music that's constantly on too!). Pot-wash area, launderette, shop, playpark for younger children and TV. Games room all very good too. They have freezer in laundry room for ice packs. ALso have a book-swap in an old red phone box! Family who run site are really lovely, friendly, helpful.
Site is 2 miles from town - good Cop-Op supermarket, great beach/surfing goods shop, Kangaroo Chippy on main road is really really good. There is swimming pool for bad weather. Parking at beach is free at Tywyn (1 mins drive from town) with playpark, toilets and cafe behind car park. Beach very clean (mixture sand and pebbles) and good safe water for children (mine body-board for hobby, and this is best beach for this). Aberdovey 5 miles south has lovely, soft sandy beach (great for shells) - wonderful homemade icecream shops, crab fishing off jetty is very popular, and great for entertaining kids. Large pay&display car park here, but cheap enough for day on the beach.
What a fantastic site - chose it having read previous reviews and we were not disappointed. Beautifully kept facilities with very friendly and helpful owners.
We opted for hook up and the pitches are generous in size and we could choose our own pitch too which is always a bonus.
The area is perfect for walking and if like us you have 4 legged friends there are lots of walks suitable for all ages and fitness levels( this means the dogs as well as us!)Honeysuckle and wild flowers as you walk along quiet lanes and beautiful views including the coast when you're up in the hills.
Small shop in Bryncrug but we mainly used the Co-op in Tywyn which is a half hour walk or 5 minutes in the car. The walk is down a fairly busy main road but for some of the way the path is screened by hedges from the road so isn't too bad. Don't forget to stop at the icecream factory outlet on the way - delicious!
Tywyn is a typical little seaside town with takeaways aplenty including Chinese Indian and traditional fish and chips. Couple of pubs but didn't use them so can't comment.
We were lucky enough to have picked the first two weeks of July and the weather was wonderful. Great to have the free facility for our iceblocks in the laundry/information room especially when a lot of sites charge for this it was really appreciated.
We would highly recommend this site and are looking forward to returning with friends and family.
We came across this site by accident. The other family we were holidaying with found the site as we all were not happy with the initial choice.
The site is really neat and tidy. There was a land rover gathering in Tywyn and they were quite full but was still able to squeeze us in on their emergency pitches which were more that adequate in themselves.
The pitches were flat and the drainage was excellent ( as discovered by one very wet day).
There is a lovely play area for the children and the little shop provides all basic essentials. The laundry room is very useful as well as the freezers for ice blocks ( included in the price).
Toilets and showers were basic but clean and tidy and the staff very helpful and friendly.
The Talyllyn Steam railway runs right past the site with a station stop right at the camp site. It is a great day trip as you can get on and off at various stops. It runs from Tywyn to Abergynolwyn and Nant Gwernol through unspoilt Snowdonia passing the Dolgoch Falls and there are excellent forest walks at Nant Gwernol. It is a much for all visitors and plan to make a day of it.
There are a number of beaches, and the seaside town offers all the usual shops that you would expect.
We cannot recommend it highly enough and after only a 2 night stay, upon leaving we booked up for a weeks stay this summer and we cannot wait to return.
We are a family of four, two adults, two kids 8 and 5(one autistic, one just cheeky) and a slightly daft Jack Russell. We have tourer, with a porch awning for weekends.
We have just come back from a weekend at this lovely site. When we arrived we were told how to find our pitch, the ladies apologised as the electricity was off, it was soon back on.
Our pitch was right next to the main thoroughfare to the toilet block, washing up and play area, but the pitch was well marked and there was plenty of space for people to get through the gap without us feeling like we were living on a motorway.
The pitch was quite wet but not sodden and not particularly muddy. The kids disappeared to the playpark, and left us to it - bliss, especially as we were so close.
It was 'race the train' weekend so the normal train timetable was disrupted, but no worries we will be back to enjoy a trip on it. There was a great atmosphere for the runners and they passed very close to the site, the train station is just over the road.
The toilet blocks were great, the facilities were generally brilliant, my older son found the ping pong table very absorbing, my younger son just enjoyed running around with the other kids on site.
The laundry was a blessing as we got absolutely soaked the first evening on a walk along the front in tywyn and we needed to tumble dry our coats (£2. 00 for 40mins - £3. 00 for a wash) free freezer for freezer blocks. Games room with tv and tv games, also with a ping pong table.
The whole site is beautifully looked after with flowers and hanging baskets, lovely wood sculptures. The family is incredibly welcoming and very helpful.
With all the kids and general bustle on the site, we were very pleasantly surprised when everything went quiet at 10. 30.
We had a great day walking on saturday, loads of walks in the area, and the weather was kind, we went up to Coris craft centre later in the afternoon to satisfy my need to by a dragon, a lovely collection of craft shops and also the site of Arthurs labrynth.
Overall a brilliant weekend, though it rained most of it, the site didn't become particularly water logged, we had a day of respite on Saturday, but had to pack up in the rain on the Sunday. Leaving time is 12noon, we were a few mins late (we were hoping for a break in the rain). There seemed to be a few of us with the same idea.
I get the impression that people go there time and time again, and I can completely understand why, we shall be going back there again, and we will recommend this site to friends.
Just returned from a week at this site and it is excellent. The site is very attractive with a stream running through it. The views are stunning and it is an ideal base to explore a beautiful part of the world.
The toilets were always clean with plenty of toilet paper and soap, the showers are free and there was always plenty of hot water, the whole site is well maintained, the family and staff were all very friendly and helpful.
The small shop sells a useful selection of essentials. The laundry room is clean and has a free freezer for ice blocks (no food). The play area is great as is the games room (very handy if you have a wet day). We also liked the selection of humorous signs.
There is a nearby pub but this was unfortunately closed for renovation when were there. Tywyn is just over two miles away and a pleasant enough little town with a good beach and a selection of shops (The Whitehall pub lets dogs into the bar which was handy for us) Tal-y-Llyn lake (very beautiful with another dog friendly pub on the shore) and Cadair Idris (very hard walk but stunningly beautiful) are also nearby. There are many waterfalls around as well. In fact the area is so attractive I could go on for quite a while about all the things to see and do.
This is an ideal family site, very child friendly, and we will definitely be returning.
