This is every bit the 5 star site the owners advertise it as, beautifully kept. Anna and Miles gave us a very friendly welcome, let us know that they were there if needed but unlike another review did not feel that they were overbearing and hardly saw them through out the visit

Went with my older parents and was a little concerned that with my mum being deaf we might be a little loud for the other campers, it really is a very QUIET site but everything was fine,

I would like to book it for a weekend with my grown up kids and two grand kids but even though they are all very well behaved and don't stay up late, feel we would be better going on a more family site and keep this for when there is only us.

It is a good 45 mins round trip to the local pub so no good to walk, and 2 hour round trip to Abersoch.

Excellent dog friendly site

Will definitely book this site again,

A lovely site. Facilities immaculate and modern; even lockers to charge mobile phones and laptops.

Pitches rather close together but all arranged around the edge of a small field with a pretty garden in the centre. Unfortunately not fully serviced as advertised on this website, no water on pitch but there is grey waste, electric and tv point.

Very quiet site with a number of rules which the owners insist are adhered to. That suited us and judging by the number of seasonal pitches it is welcomed by the majority.

Children are not allowed to play games around the caravans and tents and dogs have to be tethered or on a lead except on the dog exercise field. There is a field with small equipment for children to play on. This meant we could sit outside the caravan, enjoy the sunshine without being attacked by stray balls or dogs! Our dog enjoyed meeting other dogs in the field.

The site is very convenient for a number of beaches. Most are dog friendly. Beautiful coastal path walks.

Good local pub with well cooked food ; also good restaurant on beach.

We found people very friendly and helpful in the area.

Although on the pricey side we will return to this lovely site.

This is definitely one of the best sites we have visited. We are a fit and active couple in our early sixties.

We were lucky enough to visit during a spell of gorgeous weather but I don't think much could detract from the quality of the site.

Arrival is via a narrowish lane but there are only a few residences at one end and arrival and departure times are well staggered. Check-in was easy with a 10 deposit needed for the electronic barrier entry key. We had booked a hard standing which had waste water drainage and was very level. The grass pitches looked pretty level too. Miles checked that we were able to reverse the van and we saw him helping others onto their pitches. Anna popped down to check everything was fine once we were set up. She offered to lend us extra pipes for the drains if we needed them. The pitches were of adequate size and arranged around the outside of the field, meaning that we didn't feel 'surrounded'.

The toilet block was excellent, spotlessly clean, dual flush toilets, plenty of hot water, hair dryers, motion sensor lighting. There was heating in there as well for colder seasons. The view outside the block was to die for! It made us wish we were in the camping field as it shared the view - down across Pwllheli and Criccieth to Snowdonia.

Laundry room, mobile phone charging points, dish washing facilities, well-stocked info hut, fridge and freezer for campers, children's play area, dog exercise field were all provided. Unfortunately Gwynedd CC don't offer a recycling collection but that's not the owners fault.

We were blown away by the beauty of the area. We last visited in our teens but had missed the beautiful beaches, harbours, mountains and quirky little towns - well we were 'teenagers in love' at the time. I know we saw it at its best but we will certainly be back. Well done and keep up the good work

WOW what can we say! Loved this site and the owners. It is exactly as stated a lovely clean welcoming 5 star site. Facilities were superb! Toilets and showers were immaculate. All the facilities and the owners were excellent and cannot wait to get back here! The only downside is you need to travel by car to get anywhere (no footpaths or pavements). The owners are very helpful with directions and the dog field is a very nice extra. All in all a lovely place. Children are not allowed to play near the camping areas which was excellent and they have a field of their own.

This site is quiet, well maintained and organised. The owners are always very helpful, friendly and able to offer advice about things to do and see based on a very good local knowledge. Each pitch has plenty of space and the overall feel of the site is always calm and peaceful meaning you can fully enjoy the stunning views. The facilities are always clean and regularly checked by the owners. The extra facilities like the fridge, freezer, tv, phone charger work well. There is a separate playing field and dog walking so other campers are not disturbed. The situation of the site means that you can readily explore the peninsula. There is a bus stop at the end of the road and many footpaths you can take.

If you enjoy a quiet relaxing holiday in a stunning area just waiting to be explored then this site is well worth visiting.

The site is well signposted and roughly 400 yards from the quiet through-road bringing you down a lane to the entrance on your left.

Upon arrival you will be greeted by Anna and Miles who are the most friendly couple you could wish to meet. They give you all the information you need about the site and local area. There is a security barrier which is activated by a swipe card that you will be issued with. On the entrance to the main park there is a Summer House on the left which has a TV. There are also leaflets of local attractions and sample menus from selected restaurants.

The site has a number of hard-standing pitches with waste water drain points which are extremely level and are perfect for driving your awning pegs into. All pitches have 16 amp hook-ups.

There is plenty of width for your caravan and awning and space to park your car. The garden is beautifully kept with a flower bed island in the centre of the field.

There is a playing field next to the main park where children can play, it has a fantastic view of Hells Mouth (a popular surfing area)and on a clear day you can see the South Wales coastline. Adjoining this field is the large dog walking area.

On the other side of the main park is the field which houses the the 2 Hobbits and tents. From the top of this field you have a glorious view of Mount Snowdon and the Snowdonian Mountain Range and the coastline including Pwllheli out towards Aberystwyth, .

The shower and toilet facilities can only be described as immaculate.

There is a fully equipped laundry room and a drying room for your wetsuits. There are also charging points for your mobile phones.

There is an abundance of countryside to explore by foot. If you enjoy cycling there are plenty of challenging rides to absorb. There are decent bikes available for hire from The Willows.

There is a Post Office/General Store within a 5 minute walk, a Londis mini supermarket in the nearby village of Llanbedrog and there is an Asda at Pwllheli if you need to do a full shop.

A couple of miles away is Abersoch which has lovely beaches and varied restaurants.

We have been coming to this site since 2007 and love it because of it's tranquillity. The children's play area is in the next field which means the main park area is peacefully quiet.

We like The Willows so much that we have decided to leave our caravan in local storage so we can return every year without towing the caravan on a 300 mile round trip.
