There is no doubt this site is beautifully kept- grass is cut every day, litter picked up, toilets clean, showers hot and the pool fantastic- the warden simply never stops working. Anyone with young children wanting to use the site as a base to explore the countryside and local attractions will love this site- rather expensive at £27 a night for a very basic tent but I suppose if you want the niceties of camping you have to accept that you need to pay for them. The location is perfect- lovely walks to Caernafron and along the Menai Strait and also lovely sunsets. Tesco Extra is just down the road for any essentials and also Paddy’s Bar and the shop are a nice addition - the pool is also superb. However in my humble opinion there is a downside, if you just want to just sit and relax and unwind near your tent you will struggle to come to terms with the noise. There is simply too much going on especially with so many caravans and tents in one small field. It maybe just my age but I just wanted to relax and enjoy the scenery but I soon realised that could never happen. Dont get me wrong it is a lovely site but simply not for me. So to conclude if you want a site with everything you need and beautifully kept and to use as a base for exploring North Wales then this is definitely the site for you- however if you want to sit and relax, sun bathe, enjoy the scenery, sit outside your tent having a BBQ after 10. 00pm and sleep past 7am then this site is definitely not for you.

Come back early from our booked stay on the site for a few reasons.

Firstly the location is great to access Carnarfon which is why I chose it so that is a positive. However our impressions of the site itself are not so good. On arrival we went to the touring field as directed on our instructions but no one their to greet/welcome us. Eventually someone called down from one of the big statics to say warden was out for the day and just pitch anywhere. So we selected a pitch which was level and since we weren't using the awning, we pitched centrally in between the white posts. No other pitch markers. Then went to use the toilets to find them locked (only the ladies - the men's were unlocked). So went to the main reception for statics to be told it was £5 deposit for one key to toilets/showers and that warden had all our paperwork but he was out for day and just pitch anywhere. We had walk into town and then kids wanted to try the heated pool. It was, they said, nice and warm but small. The warden returned but didn't come over to introduce himself at any point. The next day my husband said to to him did we need anything from him and he said no if we had a key that was all. He did tell us to take down our airer as the site rules said we couldn't have it and site was going to be busy later. The airer was well within our pitch and other units had them up or lines tied to trees or massive awnings! Later that day the site got very busy with lots of arrivals for a charity fun day happening over the weekend which I was unaware of at the time of booking. The play field had been cordoned off to be used as a car park. Two tents pitched either side of us with their guide ropes into our pitch and we felt extremely hemmed in and uncomfortable. There was no way we could have comfortably sat outside our Motorhome. The wifi was not working - a fault that the lady at reception hadn't any idea when would be repaired. There were tractors coming and going all the time with the site feeling like a building site. Strimmers being used constantly and power tools on the static homes. The main reception building was being repaired or altered. The toilet and shower facilities are tired although generally clean. The dish washing is round the back and just two sinks with nowhere to put food waste.

With so many more arrivals so close to us I just didn't feel happy continuing our stay and although the warden did say as we were leaving, that we could move to a different pitch, we'd already decided that this was not going to be a peaceful relaxing end to our tour of Wales. It was the most expensive of our three sites at £27 a night for family of four and was not, in my opinion, worth it. Location is good but that's about it.

Site location is lovely. Short walk to Caenarfon castle. Showers are push type and have no way of controlling the temperature. When we stayed they were scalding hot, so much so that my two children were unable to shower and it was a very uncomfortable shower for me. Toilets and showers were kept clean, but the site wasn't busy whilst we were there. You have to pay £5 for a key to the toilets which meant 1 key between the whole family. This did cause problems when hubby went off to shower etc and then one of the girls needed the loo! Would be easier if they were only locked at night. No airers are allowed which seems a silly rule on a campsite with a pool. What are you supposed to do with wet swimming things in a tent? Pool is lovely and the kids really enjoyed it.

We arrived on site and was greated by Dave the Touring site Warden, he showed us to are pitch and also helped with moving the caravan in to place. We then started to hook up to the EHU point but found are lead was to short, Dave then offered to borro us a longer lead which was great until we moved pitches to a grass pitch. Site was lovely and clean showers were excellent but a bit to hot for me always cleaned twice a day grass was cut swell nice and short. We had a problem with the electric on site. Tripping out as the. Site was full but Dave was on to it quickly the next day electrician arrived on site and all was restored. A small dissapointment was the pool was not working which we were looking forward to using but not open till 1st week in May which are granddaughter was looking forward to but not a big issue kids play area was OK but a better one just through the camp grounds this was great as it was next to Carnarvon castle. All in all a great easter week so are booking to go back in May bank holds we hope and test the pool. A well deserved pat on the back for Dave and his misses, oh and Dave was on the ball when some other campers were a bit loud at 1045 pm he asked them to be quiet well done Dave especially when there are kids sleeping see you again Dave &Michele

Beware of visiting after the schools go back in mid September as their facilities are being wound down. Even though the web site states they close on 31st October, there was reduced opening of the bar, the restaurant and games room was closed.

The heated outdoor swimming pool is open 10 till 4.

Toilet block was clean and tidy but the showers are small. There is a ramp up to the block and a hand rail in one shower for those who are disabled. They give you a key for the toilet block, one per unit on payment of a £5 deposit.

Wi Fi available but there is a £10 charge.

Small shop on the touring site was closed.

Good base for visiting Portmerion, Snowden, Anglesey.

Good pub (Anglesey) in Caenarfon which is accessable from the site over a foot bridge but check the times of closure.

Excellent site. 5 minutes walk to Caernarfon town. Very clean showers n toilet block, nice bar {Paddy's bar} which does lovely food. Nice play area and swimming pool. Fantastic site to explore North Wales, 20minutes drive to Bangor or Portmadog or get on A55, 40 minutes to Llandudno. A must to stay if going to North Wales.
