What a lovely little campsite with fantastic views over the estuary. There is a lovely communal fire pit area with a children's swing in the top woods. My kids loved playing there. The owners were fantastically helpful; lending us a gas hose. We camped in the top part of the site (with electric) near the toilets and showers. Although there were only 2 showers and toilets we never had to queue. The shower cubicles had a nice lot of room which is rare at a campsite. The only downside of camping at the top is the road next to the site is quite busy so can be noisy. Also if you camp near the toilet block there is a very annoying sensor light that goes on and off all through the night.

There is a steep track that goes straight down to the Mawddach Trail. It's an easy flat 20 minute ride nto Barmouth which has a lovely beach and some nice restaurants and shops. Upon returning to the camp site the hill up to the campsite is very steep and quite hard work to push the bikes back up. Good exercise!

Fantastic campsite run by a very welcoming team.

Site is split into 3 distinct sections:

Top field - Campervans / Trailer tents etc. Toilet & shower facilities etc.

Mid field (accessed down steep, narrow track. Unsuitable for vans etc) - Carpark + 3 x Park & camp pitches plus some other large tent only pitches.

Water points & a composting toilet.

Great views

Bottom field - Camping pitches accessed down a track suitable for foot traffic only. Wheelbarrows available to borrow.

Stunning views across valley & estuary.

Direct access to the Mawddach Trail from Dolgellau to Barmouth.

Shower and toilet facilities are great and spotlessly clean.

Honesty shop is a great idea for the essentials (and a few luxuries too)

I really enjoyed our stay here, it worked brilliantly as a base for walking and off road cycling for 3 nights.

A real opportunity to switch off, relax and forget work for a while!

Excellent campsite with all the facilities you need while maintaining a sense of wilderness. It was quiet on site during our midweek stay but the staff and fellow campers were friendly and welcoming. Would definitely go back.

I can't recommend this beautiful place enough. If you want stunning scenery, peace and tranquillity this is for you. If you're the adventurous type you'll be spoilt for choice

This was our third stay and once again we loved every minute. Sarah, John and the team do a fantastic job and I really like the way they just leave you to enjoy place. A great location along the beautiful Mawddach Estuary and a fantastic base for exploring the rest of Snowdonia. Enjoy!

The welcome and information when we arrived was good. We camped on the upper field on a pitch with a car space. (Valley View) Beautifu view of the valley with a large area to use. Pitch was slightly sloping. A good walk up a hill to the main toilet block or walk down a narrow hilly track to the tree bog. Both toilets spotlessly clean. Shower facility excellent as again spotless and also plenty of space to place toiletries and a bench to sit on in a dry area. We used the covered washing up area which has hot water for dishes. Loved the honesty shop and we purchased marshmallows to toast on our camp fire. Logs for the camp fire were double the price you paid in town but it was good for convenience when 1st arriving to be able to buy them. We did a lot of walking (13 miles each day) along the -Mawddach-trail including walking to Fairbourne (fantastic large sandy beach) were we got the miniature railway and ferry over to Barmouth which has a large selection of eating and drinking places and then walked back. We walked to Dolgellau and visited the small farmers market, had lunch and then walked back. We looked at the whole site and thought it was all lovely. I am unsure if I would have been happy taking our 3 children for more than a couple of days when they were young purely based on how far it is to the loos from the tent. If you want a quiet site in a beautiful location with a choice of nearby places to visit this is definitely an excellent choice and we would go back again. Only down side is lack of toilet facilities close to camping area but as this info is available before you book it is an informed choice at least.

Great campsite. Very quiet and In a beautiful spot over looking the estuary. The toilets, CDP and water all in one place. The showers are a little bit further away with their 'honesty shop' which is super cute with all the necessary items needed if you've forgotten anything! Staff are really friendly and helpful.

Perfect for a quiet weekend away. Not much going on location wise so don't recommend if you have kids to entertain etc. The nearest pub is an hour and a half walk or a 30 minute bike ride away. Barmouth is a lovely little beach town 20mins bike ride away so definitely worth a visit! I highly recommend taking push bikes. But if you don't have any. They can offer you some to hire!

Highly recommend this place as it simple but great!
