Arrived back from a fab week at tyn cae arrived early and greeted with a warm welcome and a much needed cup off tea. No pestering for our site fees paid later on once all set up which was nice.

The site could do with a bigger sign on the main road as sat nav wasn't sure where to go. Could pitch were we wanted. The site small and no pubs arcades games rooms etc but still a fantastic site half the site is tents/caravans the other half a field for kids to let off steam and small slide and Wendy house football net my 3 boys loved it and didn't want to come home.

A new shower block which is very clean but only has 2 showers and toilets with a hot shower (20p for about 4 min) it never bothered us as the site wasn't very busy.

Aberdaron a short drive 4 for parking shops a little overpriced but expected for a small village afew pubs but never used them but the beach lovely, however a must see is whistling sands we thought we were in Greece although a steep hill to walk down/up to get to but worth the walk.

Nearest supermarket about 20mins drive. When leaving there was no rushing the owners didn't have a kick out time which made putting the tent away a lot easier. Defiantly worth the 16 a night price with ehu and would definitely be back. A little gem off a site

Just returned from a bank holiday stay at this site and we loved everything about it!

The site itself is only small and secluded but allows for generous pitch sizes. Most of if is on a slight slope (joys of the area!) but it's not a problem. The site is quiet (there was about 7 big tents in total) and offers fantastic views as it is in the middle of the countryside. Bit of a shame you can't really catch the sunset from it, but 10 minutes in a car and you can view it from the breathtaking viewing point at the summit Mynydd Mawr.

It's about 5 mins drive to the Whistling Sands Beach (Porthor) and 5 mins drive to Aberdaron with a few food outlets (our favorite was a local 'sort-of' Fish & Chips offering local fresh seafood like crab & chips, lobster tails & chips and the likes for very good prices!)

There was quite a few things to keep our little ones busy (2 & 4 yo) - swings, a wendy house, sandbox, lots of toys etc. The kids also loved the owners' dog and the free roaming chickens.

Owners themselves were very helpful and easy going, allowed for a camp fire even though they had no pits.

Toilet/shower block very clean and reasonable with 20p for about a minute of hot water.

All in all, fantastic little site with caring owners a good walk from any other civilisation, but that's exactly what we wanted.

Just returned from a weeks stay and my review is as follows:

1: upon arrival a welcome cup of tea awaits, nice touch

2: spacious pitch area, flat with 10 amp e. H. U. Also allowed extra car at no extra cost.

3:very friendly and helpful owners (and also the pet dog!)

4: lovely play area for the children and covered b. B. Q. Area

5: breathtaking views with peace and serenity all around

6: Aberdaron a good 30 minute walk with two lovely pubs and great food ( but a bit pricey ! ) parking in the village a nightmare but a car park is available at a cost. Local shop very expensive, a place you will visit once, then ask where the nearest supermarket is.

7: shower block. Layout questionable. Shared block with 2 showers ( 20p for approx 1 min so get yourself ready to go ! ) w. C. In with shower ( but their is a basic outside w. C. ) wash hand basins in open area so difficult to have a wash and only 1 pot washing sink so usually a queue. My wife was a bit uneasy at sharing washing and toilet facilities with males but for 98 pound for the week for a family of 6 with an extra car and e. H. U. This for me was a minor inconvenience.

8: overall, a lovely little campsite with owners who are trying very hard and deserve all the praise and success that comes their way and I can only see this site growing and improving as the years go by ! please give this site a go, the owners deserve it.

Arrived to glorious sunshine on Friday afternoon, the owners were very friendly and offered us a panad (tea).

The site is very clean and the pitches are generous.

The toilets / shower (20p) were immaculate with a new shower block ready next week.

The covered BBQ area was a nice touch and the kids had a great time in the play area and looking at the chicks and chickens that roam around the house.

The site is fully fenced off and there are plenty of water points around the site.

5mins drive down to Aberdaron and some good food in the local.

Overall an excellent site and a credit to Owners.

1st time out with our new caravan, well to be honest with any caravan.

We were welcomed to Tyn Cae site with a smile and a hot cup of tea. Ian was very helpful as we had a few teething problems with our taps.

Site is welcoming and friendly, area is beautiful we didn't realise North Wales had so much to offer. If you want a chilled out break on a lovely site that doesn't have more rules than parliament this is the place for you.

New toilet block with dish wash area is well under way, will make a big difference, for us anyway our sink is tiny. Although existing shower and toilet are small they are spotless.

All in all friendly well located clean site, we will definitely be going back.

Arrived on the Thursday for Easter weekend, were greeted with a cup of tea before setting up tent.

Unfortunately the tea was just as we had asked for which meant we couldn't complain.

While setting up the tent we noticed how quiet the site and adjoining lane were, we had to wait a long time before we finally heard a tractor approach, drive past and head off into the distance again. Hmmm, I suppose we could have complained but we have to accept some noise disturbance!

Facilities??? Well, what can you say. A small covered area for cooking and eating including bbqs, a play area, chickens roaming free a toilet and shower. But no club house! Can you believe it! No disco, no bar, no evening entertainment! Nothing to do bit sit quietly, read, enjoy the stunning views, walk into Aberdaron and back(20 minutes), walk the lanes, go down to the river, talk to your fellow campers and cottage stayers, talk to Denise and Ian! Bah not even a burger bar!

Our neighbours, in the one caravan and the stone barn we think may also have been disappointed with the peace and quiet as we barely saw them the first day. But spent next few days having to chat to them, swap tales and stories, be invited for a drink one evening!

We headed off to Aberdaron beach and found it. Well. A long sandy clean water beach with the local hotel bar being a suntrap directly overlooking the beach. Not an oil spill in sight, no radios blaring, just people enjoying themselves!

The rest of our short break followed the same routine, peace and quiet, lovely views, the sun made an appearance every day, lovely coastal walks, plenty of places to visit and have a mooch.

So, if you just want to get away from it all, much as it pains me to say, give Denise and Ian a try but please don't pinch our pitch for next time.

But if you want club house, noise, dreadful views, noisy neighbours etc etc, try somewhere else :-))

The 9 out of 10 for facilities is only because wash area was out of action. Get it sorted for Wit week Ian!

Child friendliness. No children but Hamish, our 6 month border terrier loved it, even enjoying a game of footie with two other dogs and two of the children! 9 out of 10 as we really can't speak for other children!
