We have just returned from having an excellent 5 nights stay at Crugans Farm, We have never been to this part of Wales before and what a lovely place it is. On arrival we were booked in by the owner a very lovely lady who gave us a leaflet which had the site plan and rules and reg's and told us which pitches we could choose from, also a swipe card so you can get through the electronic barrier, we chose Pitch 26 which was quite a large pitch as all the others seem to be too, it was next to the children's play area but we didn't mind. The shower and toilet block was near to us and always clean when we used them, you can buy fresh eggs from the farm and also bacon sausage burgers and other meats which are all local products. There is a really nice Beach across the road and a Pub within walking distance which does good food at reasonable prices, there is also a Bistro on the Beach as well. So I would just like to say a big thank-you to the owner and everyone at Crugan's Farm for making our stay so enjoyable, Recommended.
I'd pre-booked this site due to the excellent recommendations on UKCampsite.co.uk and wasn't disappointed. I'd had a few questions for the location and had rang Gwenno who was very informative and helpful. I'd rang around a few campsites and Crugan Farm was the only one in the area with such a happy telephonist, everyone else I'd felt like I'd disturbed their day, however with Gwenno I felt welcome right from the word go.
On arrival to the site we turned onto the turn off on the main road to be greeted by a reception at a lovely farm house. It is a working farm so we had to call the number listed at the entrance for help but we didn't mind as the owners were so pleasant and gave us our pick of the pitches as they were quiet and even offered to let us stay later on out departure day (due to availability, not always allowed if in busy periods. )
We set up our tent nicely protected by a hedge on a nicely flat field, well maintained and with plenty of space around the tent. The ground was very hard so I'd recommend bringing a mallet for your pegs however it had been hot all weekend so it couldn't be helped.
There was a small children's' play area and ample playing space for children, a well maintained shower block and toilet block, a freezer to re-freeze freezer blocks and food.
We liked the fact that it was a working farm (with sheep in the next field and guinea fowl running round, but not in the camping area mind. ) and we even bought some ribs and chops from the farm for our BBQ which was delicious, they even provided a block for us to put our disposable BBQ on so we didn't ruin the grass.
We got chatting to some guests who were staying in camper vans who said the electric hook up is good, strong wifi connection and good disposal for the chemical toilets.
The location is a nice 15 min walk from Llanbedrog village and about a 15 min drive from Abersoch and Phewelli. It is about a mile from the Wakestock festival, an ideal location for any festival goers, and directly across the road to the farm you cross a field and you are straight away on the coastal path leading to a gorgeous little cove of Llanbedrog beach.
We had a lovely time, made even more special by Gwenno and the team at Crugan Farm.
The site is very tidy. Even though dogs are welcome (we took ours) there is no dog mess to be found as there are signs everywhere telling campers to clean up their mess. As it was during term time the site was very quite although this is a working farm so there is some noise from the cows but you soon get used to this.
All the pitches are level and clearly spaced with a small fence. There is hedging and trees between the sea and the site which provides shelter from the wind. The only issue with the pitches when tenting is that out pitch was quite rocky underneath so we had quite a few bent tent pegs.
The toilet blocks and other facilities such as showers are spotless and cleaned everyday and there are sockets at the facilities for charging a phone and a freezer to freeze any cool blocks you have. There is also a play area for the kids. Lots of what look like seasonal caravans mainly taking up most of the rear of the site.
A great location too with great views of the mountains behind and not far from Criccaeth, Pwllheli and Abersoch. The owners are very friendly too!
The only big downside is that the toilets are a fair walk from the camping field and near the seasonal caravans so a bit of a walk which is ok during the day but a right pain during the night.
Just like to say what a great site this is. We stayed here last weekend for three nights. Despite our friends tent blowing away it was THE best time camping we've ever had. When the tent did sadly blow down, the owners helped and tied it down the best they could, they phoned us (because we were out at the time) they dried our wet steeping bags and helped as much as they possibly could. Brilliant service!
The site itself is perfect for people using the area for a base to explore the peninsula. With a truly breathtaking beach just across the road and through a public footpath field. It was clean and showers/ washing area always spotless. The toilets were regularly stocked with toilet roll and always clean. We will certainly be returning!
Easily booked over the phone, and nice communication with owners, tent field is very flat, great to pitch not on a slope, elec hookups if needed, and water pipes around the edges of the field, being next to the road there was some noise, but didn't keep us awake at night etc. Toilets and showers are cleaned regularly, and are very clean, plenty of room in the showers, and plenty of hot water, they work on a push button, but last a decent time before having to repush. Everyone on site was very friendly, though young ones a bit noisy at night around the park area, but only one night, speaking to they lady owner, they are applying for planning permission to build new shower/toilet block next year, so this site will be up and coming, next years or the year after, local to the beach 5mins across the field opposite, and a garage 2 mins down the road, and a local londis supermarket a bit farther, plenty to see and do, and lovely walks around the headland. Via the tin man steps. All in all enjoyed our 4 nights and would return in the near future
