Family visit in May half term - 2 adults, 2 children (8 and 6).

This site is in a nice location, lovely welcome etc. However we had the misfortune of visiting on May bank holiday weekend.

The site was absolutely rammed and unfortunately the facilities couldn't cope with the volume of campers. There were regular blockages in the toilet which was a problem.

Unfortunately the grass was really long (hadn't been cut for some time) and as it was wet, meant that our children had soaking wet feet for pretty much the whole visit.

Once the bank holiday had passed, it was much quieter and a totally different experience. The kids had space to play, there was much less noise and no problems with the facilities.

So unfortunately my rating reflects both a poor and nice experience. My tip would be to avoid at peak periods because the campsite can't cope but if you go away from major holiday weekends, you'll have a really nice visit.

You do also get some road noise from the A470 and whilst it isn't loud, if you are looking for a quiet Snowdonia retreat, then this isn't it.

In short - I'd go back at a quiet time but can't recommend during peak periods.

We return to this campsite regularly at different times of the year first with a tent and now a campervan. They are always welcoming and have plenty of spaces. The shower and toilet block is one of the best, with underfloor heating and three good showers, wash cubicles and toilets which are all cleaned frequently. The hardstandings and electric hookups are in a flat area and there is a tiered area and another field if you don't need ehu, these are sloping with flat areas, pick your own spot. There is a small lake with ducks and horses in the field behind the campsite. No children's playground. You are allowed fires as long as you buy a pack for 5 which consists of kindling and firelighters as well as logs. There are fridges and freezers available to use. They also have a locked bike store and a bike wash. Hot water at the washing up sinks. It is a long walk (1. 5 - 2 mile)into Dolgellau and is down a busy main road with no footpath for a lot of the way. There is a good Co-op in Dolgellau. Much better to bring a bbq and drinks and sit by your fire in the evening and watch the bats and the stars coming out. There's a bus stop nearby on the main road to Barmouth and Aberystwyth and many places inbetween.

Booked for two nights on our tour of north wales and left disgusted after one night only. It appeared that the owners spray painted the pitches to get more pitches in for easter. We parked our motorhome on the only available hard standing with a space either side of us and all seemed fine until a caravan arrived next to us and pitched their awning within 9 inches from our home then lit a fire and kept it going all night whilst drinking copious ammounts of stella. Then a large motorhome arrived next to us and decided to park it sideways on because it was too long for the pitch and boxed us in so we could only put up a windbreak instead of our awning. Chlostrohobia we complained to owners and the motorhome moved 2 feet. No other pitches were offered to ease the horrendous congestion and no apologies either. Disgusted we left with no offer of refund at all. Will never ever use this site again. Be warned if it`s a busy time expect to have your pitch shortened and compromised.

We stayed here for 5 nights in August 2016. We loved the fact you can have a camp fire. Newish shower block with good facilities. Wifi was variable but you could get it if you got in range. Lots of wildlife, ponies to look at, heard owls at night. Black waste is open as previously described, but we didn't think this was such a problem to be honest - it is quite a distance from other campers, and there are plenty of drinking water points on the site, so no need to use this water point! However it is the closest water point to some of the terraced pitches, so maybe that is why a child was using it, misunderstanding the situation. Staff very relaxed - pitched where we liked, few rules, but I can see this attitude might provoke people when there are rowdy groups on site.

This is delightful, welcoming camp site with facilities for both tents and caravans and good disabled access. It is well maintained and very clean. The toilet/shower block in particular was of a high standard, centrally heated and constant hot water (although there are only 3 showers in the Ladies so this could prove a problem at peak times). There are good laundry and fridge / freezer facilities, a bike wash and covered bike lock up which is great. Open fires are welcomed with the purchase of a complete fire kit for only 4. We were fortunate to be there during lambing season and saw new births daily. Lovely lake in grounds too. Conveniently situated to Coed Y Brenin, Snowdon and Dolgellau.

A well looked after site with a lovely warm centrally-heated and modern shower block. Being able to have a camp fire was lovely, and for 4 the campsite provides enough wood, kindling and even fire lighter blocks in a complete 'camp fire kit'. Sadly cooked breakfast wasn't available for the morning we were there, perhaps too much in the off-season.

Useful location not far from Dolgellau, although there was some noise from lorries climbing the hill on the A470 in the early evening.

The Torrent Walk is within walking distance, and this makes a nice hour-long walk from the campsite from bottom to top and back down again.
