A truly great site to get away from it all and enjoy the nature around you. Without sacrificing those creature comforts.

No you won't find an adventure playground, chip shop or bar, you won't need them. With the waterfalls, a river, nature trails, a riverside walk and rope swings galore the kids will have plenty to do. With the added benefit of open fires and a welcoming and relaxed attitude to camping the rest of family will love this site (just take beer and marshmallows). The river has shallow areas suitable for tiny paddlers and a slightly deeper for bigger kids and kids at heart

All the pitches are flat and very generous WITHOUT the need to measure your tent, camper or motorhome (remember those!) Clean and modern toilets, washrooms, showers and washing up areas. Reception can deal with basics and also sells kindling, firewood & charcoal. There's Wifi (if you really must spoil things) and hook ups. Barmouth (sandy beaches, tourist shops and Knickerbockers Ice cream parlour is just 20 mins away.

We stayed for two nights, I can not praise this site enough the toilets showers where kept clean and tidy, the campsite was spotless! We had a wonderful weekend walking up the waterfall,

We spoke to the lady owner she was very pleasant and friendly, Our auntie lives in the area so we are going back as much as we can to stay at the waterfall, it was the best campsite we have ever been to.

We found out there is even a washing machine room GREAT!

All I can say is I recommend this site to anyone its so peace full but not to far from beach and shops,

The price was very good we had a electric hook up you can also have wifi up there.

The showers were lovely and warm and very clean.

You don't get good phone reception unless you go up the waterfall but we liked that

We visited over August bank holiday weekend - arriving Thursday. It was very busy but to be expected. Our first visit here.

So, where to start. Our pitch was OK, we had booked lateish - not that late though so only non ehu pitches left. Didn't really matter.

Ground is pretty lumpy and because of the warm dry summer was rock hard.

There was plenty of space - we were two families in two tents and had no privacy issues and didn't feel at all crowded. In fact where we had pitched we were able to play cricket.

Lovely location, great walking, kids had a fantastic time playing in the river. Demand on facilities was high - toilets and showers didn't really cope. Only two toilets (as opposed to urinals) for blokes and it felt like a revolving door. 10 minute queues to do your ablutions - not pleasant.

Showers were great, though again only two showers and on a bank holiday that was stretched.

Good walk to village where you can stock up on essentials. Pub was very good too. We were attacked by a swarm of wasps on our return from the village which at the time was pretty scary but is now a good tale to tell. Several of our team managed to get in to double figures with stings.

It is a lovely site and well worth going. Not sure it is at its best over bank holiday, I would return but not perhaps during that peak time.

My only advice is make sure you can reverse your car, uphill, on a tight single track lane. You will need to if you visit when busy. Watching people who can't was very amusing!

Love this site, just come back from our 3rd visit. We booked early and had electric hook up. Our pitch was huge and we had family next to us as we requested.

The toilets were cleaned regularly and the showers were always hot. We don't mind paying for a shower as the price fir camping is so reasonable.

The family who own and run this site are really lovely and work really hard to make sure Nantcol is always a great place to stay. We will definitely be back next year.

We used the beach at Dyffryn which was really clean and free to park which is always a bonus. No toilets though unless you use the holiday park ones which you are probably not supposed to do.

We went to Barmouth and had a lovely lunch from Browns sandwich shop which we ate sitting by the harbour looking up the Mawdadd estuary into the mountains. Cant beat it on a sunny day.

I have just spent five nights here with my 10 year old granddaughter and can only endorse the good comments made by earlier reviewers. It is the kind of place you wish no one else knew about. Owner and his team are some of the nicest people you could hope to meet.

Even though the site was full - including a good few 25m and bigger tent complexes, it was never overcrowded.

A few more toilets and showers would have been good to cope with the number of people, but there wasn't enough of a problem to worry about.

The only real downside for me was hordes of obnoxious little boys racing round the tents at times, but I much prefer wild camping.

This campsite is AMAZING. It was my first time camping and this site made it a brilliant experience. The owners were really friendly and helpful, full of local information and felt like nothing was too much trouble. The facilities were excellent and very clean. The lit washing up area was always clean. My boys (8 & 10) loved playing in the river and on the rope swing in the field. There are lovely walks all around the site. The waterfalls are really pretty. We sunbathed at the top of the falls while the children paddled.
