We stayed in the lower estuary field - with stunning views, peace and quiet and no cars allowed. An excellent trailer service was provided to carry our camping gear from the car when we arrived and back to the car on the morning of our departure. We thought the walk to use the facilities on the upper site would be a pain, but really wasn't a problem as the walk was enjoyable and only takes 5 mins. The owners were very friendly too. Definitely recommended.

Had a brilliant stay here. Camped on the field over looking the estuary and was bowled over by the views. Although a bit of s trek to the facilities, they were fine with everything we needed. Used the campsite as a base for beach, mountain and biking. It was ideal. The brilliant Coed y Brenin is close by. Very friendly campsite in beautiful surroundings.

If you want a peaceful pitch with plenty to do around you this is the place.

We arrived later than anticipated and had to disturb the owners- we had telephoned to warn them but I hate having to do this. It was not a problem and we were given a very warm welcome. A superb site even with a good ol' Welsh mist rolling up the estuary dampening the view. Our bag of croissants ordered late that evening were just what we needed to enjoy with an early morning cuppa. The site caters for all sorts of campers arriving in various types of 'camper'. We had a hired a small motorhome which were very glad of when the rain arrived. We loved the tree house bog-viewed not used!

Eco friendly and lots of little quirky touches make this an exceptional site. Thank you!

I only found out about Graig Wen through chance whilst deciding for somewhere to stay in the Barmouth region and somewhere ideal as a base camp for climbing Cadair Idris. I was impressed at the price for peak season camping and only google searched a couple of images before booking. Had no idea there was a campsite in that location on the Maddawch trail and although at first unsure about the walking distance ( myself and a friend came on train) from Barmouth I was amazed upon arrival at the layout of the site with it's stunning views and we immediately pitched in the lower fields. The second surprise was at how friendly and helpful the staff were (also helping us map out a route via ordinance survey to Cadair Idris) and the on site shop and facilities was fantastic - local organic farm produce is sold along with local alcoholic beverages, essentials and also a charming array of edibles ideal for camping - the sheer thoughtfulness of the stock alone was amazing!. They will also deliver selected supplies straight to your tent at an allotted time such as kindling for the firepits which are on every pitch - amazing! :) The yurts and cottages for rental looked great and we hope to hire one of these in the future. Will definitely be recommending to friends!

NOTE: The site is very eco friendly and on a more whimsical note has undoubtedly the best outdoor toilet in Snowdonia National Park!Behold the stunning views and majesty of TREEBOG!

Myself and my friend showed up unannounced but the manager Nick slotted us in no problem including the car being close at hand. He made our stay really really pleasant and was friendly and helpful. We noticed he was like that to everyone who was staying there. Definitely a people person. We forgot our mugs but there he was with two mugs brought to our tent just after we had pitched it.

The place is great, good facilities; WiFi; good showers, heated and clean toilets 24 hrs and food/beer you name it.

Great views and walks. You can make a camp fire just after the campsite gate in the woods where there are swings. I'll be booking the yurt next time though >> A must!

Would definitely go again. Cheers Nick!

This site is easy to find, but difficult to access if coming from Barmouth direction.

We were welcomed by a lady who was extremely pleasant and later in our stay, sent a chap to recommend a walk. He was very friendly as well.

We had a choice of pitches at the front overlooking the estuary. For caravans/motorhomes all pitches seemed to be on stone and flat.

We did not find any problem with road noise, though our visit was early in the year.

We took bicycles and were able to access the old railway line alongside the estuary. It is a steep ride down the line and a long push back up.

You can easily cycle into Barmouth for a paper and supplies and also cycle to Dogellau the other way. If you like walking this track is still suitable for this.

Showers seemed a bit dated and were free.

If in the area we would go again, stars were clear at night and also hooting from owls
