If your looking for peace, quite, relaxation, superb views, friendly campers and the most helpful hard working owner this is the place for you. The site is clean and well kept there are a few hard standing pitches. The shower block is newish about 4 years old always kept immaculately clean. Plenty of hot water.

The site may be next to the main road but you can hardly hear a thing same as the cement works. The owner is very friendly and will help you as much as he can, he runs the cement works, a farm and the camp site but will still find time to chat to you. While we where there he had 3 orphaned lambs in a pen and all where welcome to join in with feeding the lambs my wife feed 1 and so did a couple of kids

The views are stunning which ever way you look. Porthmadog is 10 mins away with a large Tescos, Aldi and Lidl, Blackrock sands is 20 mins away. Going back you bet love the place

We are first time campers and were looking for a small camp site in Criccieth and found Glan Byl on this website. We spent a 7 days here during the first week in August and had a fantastic time despite the weather.

As mentioned by previous reviewers the campsite is adjacent to the A487 and a concrete company. However, the site is an extremely well run family business and we could not have been made more welcome. Robert and family were extremely pleasant and helpful recommending places of interest to visit.

Even though we were in our tent (with EHU) we hardly noticed the road as the site is well screened by trees and hedges. We also had our dog with us and the owners have set up a sizeable dog exercise area at the top of the site, which was an excellent facility to have use of.

We did not notice any of the comings and goings at the concrete company and were impressed with the facilities available. There is a new toilet and shower block, which is immaculately clean and appeared to have endless hot water.

The grass was well cut and the site is on a gentle slope and well drained. We were not blessed with good weather and had some torrential rain during our stay. Despite this there was no standing water and the site quickly dried out.

This was a fantastic week away for us and we will definitely recommend Glan Byl as a really well run and friendly camp site. We will definitely be going back!

Spent time here over Whit and did not want to come home.

On first sight it did not look promising as the field is on a slope, next to a cement works and along site a main road.

Soon sorted the slope out with a chock, never heard the cement works and the main road didn't bother us and certainly did not hear it during the night.

My brother and his three children camped with us and they were in a tent and they all slept soundly too. It may be because there are two rows of trees to break up the noise. Good dog walk.

The facilities are excellent and the showers superb. There are a number of caravans on a seasonal pitch and the occupiers were the friendliest people we have met on any site.We were even given a bottle of wine to go with our BBQ.

The children loved it here and although there is no children's play area there is enough space for ball games etc without disturbing anyone else.

I would recommend this site. Very good rates, very friendly people and an excellent spot for touring the area which has a lot to offer. Only five minutes from Porthmadog.

Visited this site about Five Years ago and never turned back. We decided to leave the caravan and visit all through the season. The site has a very clean shower block and a disabled facility which is great for my 11 year old daughter. The owners of the site are very helpful and nothing is to much to ask. The views over the bay are beautiful and the site itself is kept well.

There is a cement works near by the campsite and the trucks go out but this doesnt bother us at all and you don't really realise its there. The site has become a 2nd home to us and there is a lot of campers who come back year after year for the season. Would recommend to anybody a friendly clean site.

We have just come back from a lovely week staying at Glan Byl. We are a family with 2 boys we went in a tent with no electrics and was situated right next to the concrete factory, which I was worried about after reading some of the reviews but I can say I only heard them once in a morning it is not in your face and if anything the cows and sheep are nosier in the other field. You are situated near the main road but that's camping for you. There is no park for the children but this was fine as the kids make friends with each other and make their own entertainment. My boys enjoyed the open space and played boules and cricket.

The site owner works on the concrete factory and is also the milkman for the area as well, he is one of the most friendliest campsite owners I have ever met very accommodating, there is no set time to be on or off the site.When I phoned to book he just took our details no deposit and when we got to the site he let us pitch up and get settled before we paid. It is a very relaxed, friendly atmosphere and we will definitely come back to this site if we did this area again.

The showers are spacious and hot.2 toilets and 2 showers in the ladies.20p for a powerful hairdryer.Showers are free. Indoor washing up area 2 large sinks and a washer and a dryer which you just ask the site owner for a token to use.

This is a good base for seeing the sites recommended are portmeirion, harlech castle and sygun copper mines, in easy reach to many beaches. A good place to eat is the foxes cross it is signed post off the main road and is up the hillside out of the way a bit but the meals and the company is fantastic.

Visited this site for first time. Electric hook up available. Toilet and shower facilities very clean. Showers are free with lots of hot water. You will need 20p for hair dryer. Views are good depending on where you are indicated to park your van.
The downside of this site is the concrete works next to the site, if you are parked at the bottom of the field you get the noise of the passing trucks to and from the site.
Three pubs in Tremdog serving food approx 2 miles away. We ending up leaving the car and got a taxi back to the site which cost 5.40. Lots of others places to eat in Cricceth or short car drive away. Good coastal and country walks with great views not far from the site.
