Very peaceful small site with beautiful views and friendly owners. We had a lovely time.

Reasonable rates - £14 per night with EHU.

Tap conveniently next to EHU but seemed to be fitted with a spray nozzle! Easily solved problem of filling water carrier as we had a funnel with us.

No pubs/restaurants within easy walking, so we cooked in the van in the evenings. No mobile phone reception, but good TV signal.

We have our own facilities but the loo block seemed quite clean.

2 cubicles each with a loo and shower (20p). But no sinks in the cubicles meaning that tent campers would have to clean teeth/have a wash in the public sink area. No soap dispensers in sink area, but has electric hand dryer.

Nearby Aberdaron is so pretty - even in the pouring rain! National Trust car park very cheap. Tea room and pub or 2, ice cream and gift shops, Spar etc and a lovely beach.

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

Would highly recommend this site. Tyn Cae is in a super location, very quiet and peaceful with lovely views.

Site and amenities are well laid out, plenty of space, exceptionally well maintained with excellent facilities. During my holiday stayed at another 4 star rated site further south which was not a patch on Tyn Cae.

Stunning beaches, countryside and convenience stores to hand. What more could you ask for. And yes we had good weather too!

Many thanks also to the fantastic hosts Ian and Denise for developing such a smashing site. A hidden Welsh gem.

Hope to see you all soon.

Best wishes Dave, Annette and Matthew x

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.

Following a two week stay at Tyn Cae my review is as follows:

On our arrival we were greeted by the owners son who showed us to our pitches then offered us a cup of tea which was very welcomed after a 3 hour drive.

The pitches were very big and accommodated our large tents very well and plenty of space for the car alongside. A total Bargain at £16 per night with hookup

Ample spotless shower block for the size of the site comprising of 2 showers/toilet rooms a couple of wash basins and an extra toilet just outside the block. (these are shared facilities which may be a problem for some but It was never an issue for me)

Showers cost 20p for approximately 1 minute but this was enough time to shower and wash hair. (also stops people from hogging the showers!)

We never had to wait at all for the 2 weeks we were there.

During our stay the owners fitted a hand dryer to the on going renovation of the shower block

Washing up sink was within the same block so under cover.

Behind our pitches was a large area where the children could play football etc there was also a small climbing frame and slide along with a playhouse and toys for the children use.

There is an under covered seating area and bbq's for the campers to use which we did so a great touch there!

Overall this was a very relaxed and welcoming site perfect for all, sheep surrounding the site and chickens roaming free and off the beaten track so very quiet with hardly any passing traffic, we took a couple of walks into Aberdaron which is approximately a 30 minute walk (we did have to heard 8 children along the country roads so a bit quicker for just adults) but a lovely walk, it boasts a chip shop, spar (v. Expensive!), post office, newsagents, pub, cafes and a bakery ( brilliant for fresh bread and milk), also 5 minutes drive away is 'Whistling sands' a beautiful beach to visit.

Only criticism is that there could be a larger sign at the end of the lane for initially trying to find you :)

Many thanks to Denise & family!

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.
