 Just got back from a lovely 3 night break here.

We received a friendly welcome from Lorraine who explained all about the site and guided us to our small but adequate hard-standing pitch.

Credit must be given to her and husband Selwyn for maintaining such a beautifully kept site - everything was immaculate.

The site was virtually full during our visit but even with only one shower each for ladies and gents I only had to wait a short time once.

We were quite close to the road and experienced a bit of noise but it wasn't intrusive and had actually been offered a grass pitch further away from the road, where the views of the surrounding hills are gorgeous.

We managed two wonderful day's cycling and really enjoyed the quiet lanes of the Llyn. Highlight was a visit to Porth Oer also known as Whistling Sands (and featured on Countryfile and Coast recently)and according to my wife, yes the sands did indeed whistle when walked on. Shame my deaf ears didn't hear though!

If you're visiting the Llyn Peninsula, this is the site to go to.

 Found this site on google and after reading the reviews booked it straight away. We were lucky as Lorraine and Scott only had one pitch available. Greeted on arriving on site and shown around the facilities and our pitch. Lovely and quiet with a shower block and utility room and facilities for disabled and family room. All facilities were spotlessly clean and tidy. Our dog was with us and there are plenty of walks with the best being across the road from the entrance and right down a lane called Lon Pwll William which takes you down to the coastal path. Lovely walk with some eye opening properties hidden away. The Ty Coch inn on the beach is always worth the visit as is the iconic 7th tee off and green on the golf course. Plenty to see and do and if walking is on the agenda as we did then Yr Eifl, the old quarry and Hill fort are a must to do. Fantastic views over the Llyn and across to Ireland on a clear day. Will definitely be revisiting this site again

 We have just returned from this lovely site, beautifully kept & considering how foul the weather was the site drained quite quickly. A bonus was the use of a freezer as our fridge had decided not to work the day before departure. There is no dog walk on site but there is a narrow lane alongside the site & there is a lovely lane across the road which leads to the coastal path, takes 15mins. There are 2 ladies toilets & one shower (50p which provided a good hot shower), however, it was quite chilly inside. It was fairly busy during our visit & yet we didn't have a problem using these facilities. We visited the Nanhoran Arms in Nefyn but were not allowed to take our dogs in, another pub was boarded up. The nearest pub would probably be the Bryn Cynan at Morfa Nefyn which is on a main rd with no pavement part of the way, and as traffic drives faster than the 40mph limit it is not advisable to walk there (which is what we did). We had a meal there & the steaks were gorgeous. Another pub The Cliffs, down nr the beach is closed for refurbishment, which we were told has been going on for a long time. The Ty Coch Inn (which is tiny) on the beach is lovely & is extremely popular & serves food during day time. It is a lovely site run well by very friendly people & we would highly recommend

 I almost didn't leave a review, because its going to be fantastic, and I don't want this wonderful campsite to be fully booked next time we want to visit!

Anyway, our first time in wales, and so glad we chose Tyn Y Coed for the first 4 days of it, perfectly situated in Morfa Nefyn, easily walking distance to 2 beautiful beaches at Nefyn & Morfa Nefyn. Beautifully kept site, with massive serviced pitches. New modern shower block, with PROPER SHOWERS! (yes folks, no push button showers here) I would rather pay 50p for the luxury of a clean hot power shower any day of the week.

This site has lots of little extra's that make it home from home, fridge freezer, washer & dryer in the pot wash building, was a pleasure to use, not in a cobweb cold shelter like normal!

Lots of local information on display, including maps of local walks. This site is a dog walkers paradise.

There is a grassed area for camping, and some children's park things. Although we had no children with us, so didn't take too much notice.

The village has a few shops and 3 pubs, we visited all 3 :) and found the cliff Inn and Ty Coch Inn (right on the beach at Morfa Nefyn) to be easiest to walk to, although the Y Bryncynan served lovely meals.

I would highly recommend this site, and we will definitely return again next year.

 A good site, toilets are spotless the grounds well kept, good location for exploring the area, fantastic walks around the coast, close to small well stocked shops and short distance to local pubs. Small site with that comfortable feel. Whistling sands Aberdaron, Hells Mouth and Abersoch are within easy reach. We had a fully serviced pitch with plenty of room for an awning and car. On arrival the manageress was very pleasant and helpful, we will be back.

 We stayed here for 8 nights in June. It is a lovely quiet, friendly campsite. Not a lot of pitches. A mile or so walk to the famous Nefyn golf course and there is public access through it to the beach and coastal paths. Across road is footpath down to the main Morgan nefyn beach (dogs not allowed in high season on beach). Fantastic coastal path walks from campsite & also an off road path walk to popular pub (Lorraine very helpful with info) there is also a little bus that does a circuit of the local towns that stops just outside campsite

Very clean showers, toilets etc 50p for shower but you get a lot of time so good value

Has a little rotary dryer for everyone's use by toilet block

There's a few little places for coffee or meals, nothing fancy but adequate

Dogs allowed on leads

Little shop/post office about 1/4 mile from site, also petrol station same distance which has shop with own local butcher and baker inside with great value goods.

Reviewer: Suzanne C 1 review from this member

 I booked a family weekend away at this campsite last weekend, we stayed for three nights.

What a cracking little campsite, a real gem. Immaculate facilities, spotlessly clean, with lost of extras touches on site to make sure you have everything that you may need for your stay, ie:- Large Fridge & separate Large Freezer available to use free of charge, also a washing line provided next to the toilet block, lovely little touches.

We stayed on the camping field as there were a few of us and all wanted to be pitched together, even the camping field is mowed to perfection, nothing is done half-heartedly at this campsite which is what makes it so special.

The owners are really friendly and went out of their way to accommodate us. Great beaches near by, with stunning views and coastal walks.

Would definitely stay at this campsite again, and would recommend it to anyone looking to stay in this area.

 Stayed on this site for 3 nights, it's a lovely little site that we did not know existed. We booked on to a hard standing pitch with water waste and electric, the pitch was a generous size with plenty of space for a awning, and all this for 20 a night. The site has a small modern shower block although they do charge 50p for the shower also a spacious indoor area for washing your pots and pans. Also here you will find a variety of walks and leaflets of local attractions. The site was nice and quiet also was kept in pristine condition, a credit to the owners, we would certainly stay here again and with great beaches and pubs both in nefyn and morfa nefyn it's a gem that won't stay a secret to long.

Reviewer: WalkingWales 1 review from this member

 I have never before been inclined to write a review, but on this occasion I really want to sing the praises of the owners of this lovely, well-maintained site.

We are walking the Wales Coast Path, all 870 miles of it, We have just returned from a week's stay in our touring caravan at Tyn y Coed, which was our base for walking the Llyn peninsula. Our needs are pretty basic in what we hope for from a site. Yes the toilet/shower block was clean and well maintained, the washing and fridge freezer facilities are all very good. One facility though that rarely gets a mention is the chemical waste disposal! This was the cleanest and most functional example I have ever encountered.

But it's not the facilities on the site that has inspired me to write a review. The logistics involved in walking successive sections of the coast path can be quite problematic, especially when you are walking from one point to another and you only have one car.

The site owners went out of their way to help out: we were able to drop our car off at our finishing point of the day's walk and the owners drove us to our start point, this would have taken well over an hour of their day, on each of the days they did this for us. They showed a genuine interest in what we were doing and were clearly very proud of the 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' that is the Llyn Peninsula.

As an aside, we have walked the 630 mile South West Coast Path and other paths including Hadrian's Wall, Offa's Dyke and The Cotswold Way and so far, 300 miles of the Wales Coast Path but few places can compare to the coastline of the Llyn peninsula, 'dramatic' doesn't do justice!

I hasten to add that this was the first week of the season and there were few others on the site. However, the customer service was exemplary. It was more like a friend helping out. Diolch!

Reviewer: Asjp 5 reviews from this member

 We've just returned home from a lovely few nights stay at Tyn Y Coed. A lovely small site, really well run and looked after.

The field with the tent pitches was quite busy, and when a large caravan plus awning and large 4x4 car pitches up it is quite close together, but not to detract from the standard of this site.

As other reviews have said, there are only 2 toilets and one shower in each M / F bathroom, plus a family/disabled room. Again, as others have said, the 50p/7 mins charge means that there is rarely a queue for the facilities, which is great.

The washing up room is a proper indoor room with a fridge, freezer, washer and tumble dryer, as well as lots of information about local attractions and walking routes.

With so many families in a fairly small space it was a bit noisy, but the 10pm quite time was fairly well obeyed so we didn't have a problem here.

Just two things to bear in mind - firstly, it was very dry when we arrived and the ground was very hard. Bent quite a few tent pegs! Also the field is a bit sloping in parts and also a little uneven, which could be an issue if you were unlucky or pitched your tent in a particular spot on the pitch. The pitches are generously sized and clearly marked, however, so I don't think this is a major issue.

Locally, lovely little shops and a nice playground for the kids. Pubs etc we didn't get chance to sample, sadly! Overall, a really enjoyable stay.
