We stayed here for 4 nights during Whitsun week with friends who also had a camper. We stayed in the top part of the site with electric hook up and hard standing. You will need rock pegs if you want to pitch your awning here. It is pretty narrow here but fortunately we didn't have neighbours opposite us otherwise it would have felt rather hemmed in. Road is also very near so you will get traffic noise however the road is quite a way below the pitches so I have to say it wasn't a problem. The site offered hot showers and washing up facilities and toilets with plenty of toilet roll, paper towels and hand cream. Cleaned daily. There was also a reception which was really helpful with local information, maps and various bits and bobs to buy including local beer and produce. We ran out of dog food on the last morning and the owners were lovely enough to give us some without cost. There is an honesty shop next to the showers with ice creams, sweets, milk, local meat etc. Perfectly situated for the children to see each time you get them to do the washing up! The site itself is beautiful. The views across the estuary are wonderful and there are two pitches on the top site with scenic views. We had an issue with lots of very small gnats as we were parked next to huge conifer trees. We were eaten alive so take precautionary measures if parked towards the back of the hard standing pitches. Walks along the old railway line against the estuary towards the coast to Fairbourne. You can get a bus back which stops right outside the campsite. Last bus is around 3. 30pm. Lovely long beach here which is dog friendly. Inland along the railway track you can walk around 4 miles to a local hotel which dishes up some great lunches. Sorry can't remember the name but its next to the toll bridge and the first (probably only) pub you come to. Great site for walking, little in terms of amenities around but if you are like us and don't really need them then this is the site for you.

This was our second time back at Graig Wen and we were not disappointed. We are a family of four - 2 adults and 2 active children, this site is on our top five sites list for all of us. The views are breathtaking; the communal fire pit is a great way to relax and meet new friends; the rope swing and woodland brilliant for the boys to explore; the showers are hot and clean; the honesty shop well stocked and really useful. Being enthusiastic mountain bikers this site is ideally located for Coed y Brenin where we had three fantastic days cycling. The walk into Barmouth along the estuary is really pleasant and due to the location of the site you do not have to walk on any roads. Dollgeau is a leisurely bike ride away, the freshly cooked fish at the fish and chip shop there is well worth the wait. There was one fault - they ran out of the local wheat beer at reception!

We camped on the lower field and on the first night had the place to ourselves, the view across the estuary and to Snowdon was fantastic and we had a campfire in the evening which helped keep the midges at bay !. The gentleman who showed us around was very friendly and helpful. You have to use wheel barrows as you can't drive to your pitch but we knew this before we went and was no problem. The tree bog was clean and tidy, can't comment on any of the other facilities as we didn't use them. We didn't take our car out at all. It is really easy to walk from the site and the perfect location to explore by foot. We would highly recommend this site but you need to be fit and able as there is a lot of walking up and down hills and across fields to get anywhere. Great site, easy to find, perfect location.

We had such a lovely time at this beautiful campsite. The owners/managers couldn't do enough for us. The kids loved playing in the woods and getting back to nature. The views are out of this world. Facilities are enough - hot water and sinks in the shower block for dishwashing and a lovely honesty shop. Showers and toilets very clean. We will return for sure.

The site is beautiful! But! It is very noisy in a morning and they let kids play football around the caravans in the morning and at night (if you want a place kid free and quiet this isn't the one). Also on the way into the site the trees and branches overhand the road, so expect a scratch or 2! Oh and you have to navigate around stupid flower pots. Such a shame. We wont be back.

What a super find.

From the minute you arrive to the minute you leave this is a fantastic place. Sarah made us really welcome and showed us to our pitch in the touring section at the top of the hill, near the reception office and cottages.

There's a small toilet block that is spotless, a small shower room, again spotless, and a small trust shop selling a few essentials - local sausages to ice lollies.

The icing on the cake for me is being able to pre-order fresh croissants, etc. For breakfast.

The location is wonderful with a fantastic view across the estuary onto the Snowdonia. The campsite sits above the estuary, and (after a steep walk down) there's a beautiful walk or bike ride to be had along the route of the old railway track to either Dolgellau in one direction or Fairbourne in the other.

Just a couple of notes:

This review is based on a stay the weekend before Easter, so the site was not busy at all. Just a handful of campervans and a couple of tents. The bottom camping fields were not open yet, but walking down through them they are lovely - fire pits mark the pitches, and they are served by composting toilets, with a water supply piped all the way down the hill.

Have an awning or windbreak? Take some STRONG pegs and a hammer for the stony ground in the touring area. The camping fields are grass, so will be fine in this respect.

Recommended. We'll be back :-)
