We liked this campsite. Great location, very peaceful and the views are great. Our kids had the whole field to play in and there was nothing for us to worry about. The facilities were all kept nice and clean.

The site is split over three fields. We camped in the large field on the opposite side of the road to the main toilet/shower block and cafe. However the field itself does have three portaloos, all spotlessly clean.

The lower part of the field is flat but our pitch further up the field was slightly sloping so some adjustment to table/stove level required.

The washing up/shower/toilet block is fine and kept nice and clean. But the shower cubicles are badly designed - place 50p in meter, open cubicle door, push button and you are blasted with cold water and it goes all over the floor! So take something dry to stand on afterwards!

The local area is lovely. Nearest village is Aberdaron about 2 miles away. Couple of pubs, cafes, fish and chip shop, Spar, bakery, off licence. But off licence and chip shops shut at 8pm (Spar at 9). The beach is great for kids.

Back to the campsite - This is a nice quiet campsite. Nice dark location so great for star gazing - we saw Mars, Saturn and Jupiter. The owner was very pleasant and the site is well cared for. Oh yes the other good thing is the price - only £15 a night during a school holiday. We will return next time we are in the area.

This is a brilliant site. The location is right at the end of the headland with the most beautiful views in all directions including the wonderful Bardsey Island. Great walking country and the weather changes so quickly there's never a dull moment. The site itself is just as I like it - not too big, comfortable, clean and friendly. The owners keep the place in brilliant nick. Electric hook-up, plenty of taps, very clean toilets, showers and washing facilities. I visit frequently and now there's a cafe too. Just right.

The first thing to bear in mind about this site is that the road to it is extremely narrow so be mindful of that if towing a caravan.

When we arrived at the site to be honest we were somewhat disappointed, after reading the reviews we were expecting better. The site is what I would call rustic, not particularly pretty or even that well maintained but the views are lovely. We were met by the owner who was very friendly and showed us to our pitch. A lot of the pitches has their an water supply although these rarely worked as there was a problem with the water pressure and I heard a few people complaining about the lack of water when washing up and in the showers. There was only 2 unisex toilets, 1 men's, 1 ladies shower and a disabled one which I personally don't think is enough for the size of the site, all 3 fields were full but perhaps this isn't often the case.

There was a small cafe on site and although we didn't eat there the food a saw coming out look very nice and the reports I heard were good.

Where we were there was a lot of children playing ball games which I wouldn't usually have a problem with but they were very close to people's units and we weren't too happy when a rugby all hit our caravan!

The actual location of the site is a little remote, the nearest shop, pub etc is about 1. 5 miles away so perhaps too far to just pop for a drink without the car. However that aside the village is lovely and there are also so many nice places to visit within a short drive away.

My overall opinion of this site is that we enjoyed our time there but wouldn't go back for the simple reason that there are so many sites in that area that I'm sure we could find one that was in a better location with better facilities.

We arrived here for the beginning of the school summer term in the heat wave with our large Outwell tent for electric hook up we found the site from this web site.

The owners run the three field site two of which have electric hook ups The site is clean and well run it has the usual toilets mind you take your own toilet roll just in case its very busy and showers at 50p with a washing area for cooking but no washing or tumble dryer but we found Madog Launderette in Porthmadog on the High St opp Tesco very useful for longer stays. We also found a very useful caravan store at the rear of the High St for anybody who has forgotten any thing.

Owner runs the cafe which is open for breakfast and dinner and for tea & cakes. She has supplied very useful info for the area.

Well behave dogs are welcomed but bear in mind sheep are in the next field.

No play area for kids mind you we found the children all played together with ball games in the centre of the field without any trouble for other campers

Its good if you in a group you can camp together along with tents & caravans as neighbour's.

The location is at the very end of the public highway joining Nation Trust land.

The views are breath taking and walking off site in any direction and if you enjoy fishing off the rocks you don't have better chance of catching dinner for a BBQ. Not suitable for young children to climb down.

Take the coastal walk to the nearest village Aberdaron over looking a good family beach idea for all beach sports. They're have two lovely hotels with bars and meals. The Ship serves a good meal or go to the local chippy. Spar around the corner with a very good deli and a fresh bakers.

The beaches around this area are breath taking & some have cafe on the beach for that good lunch and out shine Cornwall & Devon for peace and quiet.

We will be coming back with no doubt and you enjoy walking and fishing you could do nothing wrong and come here.

We would like to say a big thank you for a wonderful stay here.

Only minus for a lack of soap provided in showers & toilets and washing machine / tumble dryer would be useful would save driving to a town.

A well cared for, simple but clean site with friendly owners who look after you very well. New cafe serves the most wonderful afternoon teas - cakes to die for - and breakfasts to set you up for the day! Facilities kept very clean and regularly checked.

Two main fields that drain well and are on a slight slope for 'vans motorhomes and tents. High season overflow field for tents. Electric Hook ups - book up in advance if you need one as there are plenty, but only round the edges of the fields. Ground takes tent pegs easily in general and holds them well - it can be windy sometimes but is sheltered by the hills from most directions.

But it is the views that make the place what it is! It is at the end of Wales! Sea on three sides. Nothing to spoil the views anywhere. No clubs or pubs in earshot - so quiet. Good pubs within 2 miles and shop for all you need day-to-day in Aberdaron. Must do is a trip to Bardsey Island. Beautiful beaches, coves and cliff walks. Wildlife is amazing too. Miles of quiet roads and safe walking.

Off season the site is still kept well and makes a wonderful retreat! Really should be keeping that quiet!

Not a place to go if you don't like the countryside. But if you do…!

Great for families with children - but don't expect playgrounds or 'attractions' The location is the attraction. I give it 10 out of 10 for facilities because though simple they are very clean and well maintained.

If you want discos, entertainment and noise, don't go! If you want to relax and feel at one with the world - see you there!

This site is great, would go back time and time again. The owner is very friendly and you get a good welcome from him, The toilets are very clean and the showers are good. If you want a site that is great for walking and great views then this is it.

You can have a very cheap holiday here because it is so remote and peaceful what can you spend your money on? Best site we have been to for years, pity it's 220 miles from our home or we would be there every weekend. And very dog friendly
