 What more can I say that hasn't already been said that every review has. This site spot on. Its a wonderful site. Views from the bottom field where we stayed are magnificent, even better at the top field. Only complaint is we weren't there long enough. Cant wait to go back, praying for an Indian summer. The owner is so friendly and so were all the other campers

 A fantastic site that we wouldn't hesitate to re-visit, or recommend. The owners live on site and are always available. The toilets and showers were always clean, even when the site was busy and there was usually no queue at all. 20p gave a good shower.

The pitches are well spaced; although some are sloped this didn't seem to cause a problem. My 2 boys, (10 and 13), loved the pool table in the barn. There is a large freezer, 2 tumble dryers, a hair dryer and a microwave, plus a toaster and various other things to use/borrow. There is no play area, which didn't bother us - all the children seemed happy to entertain themselves.

There are walks from the campsite over the moors and you can walk to the cafť on the main road, about 5 mins away, which serves breakfast. We walked into Betws-y-Coed, where there are cafes, pubs, outdoor and gift shops, plus several 'spar' type shops. These are very expensive though! We did find there was a lack of dog friendly places to eat - outside the Swallow Falls Hotel and the Stable Bar were the 2 we used, but there may have been more.

There is a supermarket in Llanrwst which we didn't realise until much later in our stay, together with a launderette. This was about 10-15 mins drive from the site. Snowdon is within a short drive, as is Bedgellert. Conwy is slightly further, where there is a lovely beach ideal for children, which is also dog friendly.

 We have just returned from 6 days at Rynys farm. It was a very enjoyable week as it was our first visit to Wales. The site is centrally located, only 2 miles from Betws-y-coed which has a spar and londis shops for supplies. Also banks, fuel etc. Snowdon is around 25 mins drive as is Conway where there is a large tesco.

The site is very attractive. You can pitch more a less where you want and the owners supply extension cables if your hook up doesn't reach the nearby points. Lovely views from site across the hills to snowdonia national park.

Two showers / toilets for both men and women, but didn't cause an waiting issue. Very clean at all times.

There is a pool room if the weathers bad, but our children were more than happy to play in the large trees and stream which ran through the site.

The only thing to be aware of is that there is no washing machine which meant we ran out of clothes and had to handwash which is not ideal.

Lovely owners who leave you to your own devices and ask for payment upon leaving.

Some sloping pitches, but nothing too bad. Will likely return as there is a lot to see in the surrounding area and we couldn't see everything in the time we were there.

 Me and the wife spent 6 nights here in August with our tent and motorcycle.

We had a very warm welcome from Carol who gave us a choice of pitches.

We chose a pitch which had a stunning view, not too far from the toilet/shower block.

We were charged £15 per night for both of us which I was quite happy to pay.

Carol charges mobile phones up for free and you pay for your pitch fees when you leave, which I've never come across before in the UK.

Most of the pitches are quite flat but some do have a slope, ours was flat.

There are some rocks underground but we managed to use our standard tent pegs without any problems.

The site is spotlessly clean and Carol is often seen picking up any litter left by other campers.

The entrance road from the A5 is a little steep and only wide enough for one car. In the whole week we only met another vehicle once, so not a big issue.

The toilets are basic but clean at all times. There's only two showers and toilets for both men and women so at times was very busy, especially the Friday when there was an overlap in campers coming and going.

Will we return to this campsite, , you bet.

 We chose this campsite because it had some great reviews.

We stayed here over Jubilee weekend. When we arrived, Carol, the lovely lady who runs the site showed us a few different areas where we could pitch and we eventually chose a nice little spot on the lower field.

The facilities at the campsite were excellent. I had worried before we arrived that the toilet/showerblock would become very busy with only two showers, but I never had to wait and there was plenty of hot water (the showers use a timed meter so bring plenty of 10pís!)

There was also plenty of room in the dishwashing room, which also had two freezers, a washing machine and electricity sockets (these also work on the 10p meter) so I was able to dry and straighten my hair!

The campsite is about 2. 5 miles from the village of Betws-y-coed which has lots of little cafes, shops, two supermarkets, bar and restaurants. We often drove into the village to stock up on supplies and one evening we ate in the Royal Oak Hotel, which was good home comfort food, reasonably priced. The Stable bar next door is quite lively and attracts a younger crowd. One point about the village is that it can be notoriously busy so parking can be a problem.

The surrounding area has some fantastic walks; Carol has wide range of books and guides that campers can freely browse. She recommended a walk around Ogwen, a 3 mile route round a glacial lake with some stunning views.

Despite the wet weather the campsite didnít become too muddy and it dried up by our last day.

This is a fantastic little campsite with excellent facilities and a wonderful owner who is more than happy to help, or just have a chat.

We are already planning our next trip.

 We had planned to go to a different site but this one was much closer to betws and we are so glad we chose this one.

The lady who runs the site was cheerful and happy, nothing was too much trouble and she really made you feel welcome.

The site was lovely, it seemed fairly busy but there were still loads of nice quiet pitches. Even though it had been the wettest few months on record the pitches were still dry and the grass well cut.

The toilet and wash blocks were clean and endless hot water, loo roll was already in the toilets too.

Would recommend to anyone and will be heading back.

 What a fantastic site. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and want to go back already.

We are a couple looking for peace, tranquility and relaxation for our holidays which this site has plenty of.

The site is set out on different levels but the areas where you pitch are flat. The access is up a fairly steep but short road straight off the A5. We had no problems getting our caravan up and we did not hear any road noise on the site. The toilets and showers (coin operated) were just what is needed and as it wasn't busy we never had to wait. Only comment would be there was no soap in the toilets.

The owners and all the people there were friendly as was the owners' dogs. The dogs visited our BBQ one night and they shared a sausage, very friendly and gentle dogs.

Ideal location for mountain biking, the penmachno and the marin trail at gwydyr forest both very close. Also close to Betws y Coed which is a lovely town.

Conwy falls cafe is excellent although it closes at 4pm in the week.

All said, this was perfect for us! Will hopefully be going back.

 Stayed here over Easter Weekend. What a lovely, serene, clean and relaxing place to stay! The views of the neighbouring hills, on a clear day are breathtaking. This is a working farm so the owners, Gareth and Carol are busy most of the time, but Carol is never too busy for a friendly chat!

First of all I would say that this is a medium sized campsite. They accept tent's, caravans and campervans. It is not commercialised with entertainment or a shop etc.

Tent pitches are all on different levels. Some sloping, some pretty flat. Rock pegs needed in some places. 10amp EHU available on bottom field. The cost of my stay was £51 for 3 night's with EHU for 2 people(very reasonable as it was Bank Holiday).

Doesn't matter what size your tent is as there is plenty of room for larger tents and there is no price difference!

I actually went into The Gelert shop at Beddgelert and bought another tent whilst there. When I returned to the site, I asked Carol if I could pitch it and take my smaller tent down afterwards. She was so excited at me buying another tent and told me to pitch my new one next to my smaller tent and use the small tent for storage! Where else would you get such hospitality? I ended up with 2 tent's on my pitch, which wasn't a problem as the pitches aren't numbered, you just choose your own area. I wasn't charged any more either!

The facilities block includes 2 showers & 2 toilets, I assume this is the same in the gents! There is a games room, with a pool table & some books. There is also a Washing and drying room with a kitchen washup area and food prep area with fridge and freezer in. All this is undercover in a converted outbuilding. The showers were steaming hot so beware with young children, I had to turn it down as it was far too hot, but it was welcoming after a cold/wet day on the hills.

The showers operate on 10p coins. 10p gets you 2mins, 50p gets you 10mins, which was far too long for me (short hair). You do have to get undressed first then pop outside (still undercover in the shower room) and insert your money, otherwise you may lose 2mins worth of electric whilst undressing.

There are no children's play areas, just rolling hills and trees to explore. The owners sheep are in fields all around the site & chickens roam freely. Plenty of birdsong heard early on in the morning and we heard the odd owl hooting at dusk!

There is a no noise policy after 11pm and before 8am so if you're planning an all night party, don't bother! All in all, this site is a well thought out, relaxing place to spend time exploring North Wales as it is pretty central to everywhere.

Betws-y-coed is the nearest town and is a few miles down the road. I can highly recommend The 'Conwy Falls Cafe' for all manner of eating & drinking. Open from 9am through till 4pm every day. (Just opposite the entrance road to the campsite).

They also have pizza and tapas night's frequently during the weekends. Their homemade cakes are wonderful & they do takeaway tea's, coffee's and sandwiches.

Their full welsh breakfasts are huge! They cater very well for vegetarian's too(my friend is a veggie)and she was impressed!

The walk down to Conwy Falls is £1 to get through the access gate and just enough to walk off that huge piece of ginger and cinnamon cake!

For other places to walk, Mount Snowdon is a mere 16 miles away and Plas-y-Brenin(outdoor pursuits centre)is a few miles down the road into Capel Curig, where there are many walks of different abilities to choose from.

I will definitely return to this campsite. Many thanks to Carol and Gareth for sharing their land with us campers!

 Another lovely stay at our favourite campsite in Wales. We stayed for six nights over the Easter week - the weather was very wet, especially on the Bank Holiday Monday. The field was waterlogged after 27hrs of rain, but it drains fantastically well, and by the time we left on Thursday, it had drained enough to allow us to pack away dry.

The facilities on the site are excellent, and the owners, Carol and Gareth are truly lovely people. I can't recommend the fresh eggs from the farm enough!

A short trip down the hill to Betws-y-Coed and you've a wide range of pubs/cafes/hotels to choose from as well as plenty of outdoor shops to top up the kit list.

We'll be back, again and again.

Reviewer: Rowlandsgl 1 review from this member

 Excellent site with very good loo block/washing up facilities. It was a pity the dryer was out of action as the weather was appalling - but I won't hold that against them!

Would definitely go here again as the field was so 'interesting' with such a variety of pitches and no boring straight lines.

Found some good walks straight from the site - for a good place to walk dogs off the lead go to the woodland nr old Penmachmo woollen mill.

I gather a good breakfast can be bought at the cafe at the bottom of the hill - didn't go ourselves, but we could see the appeal if you had several soggy days in a tent
