Spent 4 nights here last week. This is our 4th visit to this site as we love it. Great site with few rules but they are effective & reasonable. Don't like sites with lists of rules and regulations. Very basic with clean toilets, hot showers and plenty of room to pitch your tent. We don't have EHU so can't comment on those pitches.

Access to the beach on foot is the main reason we love this site. It doesn't get busy probably because you can only get to it on foot. Bit of steep climb but not that challenging if you're fit & able. We haul all our beach setup down for the day and just sit back and enjoy.

There was plenty of wild life watching too. We saw dolphins every morning in the bay then a seal popped up to the surface to check out our dog swimming. Back at the tent we were entertained by stoats running around the shrub playing and hunting. Perfec for star gazing at night too.

We took our 1yo and he loved the freedom of running around. Not sure about older children but there is plenty to occupy an imaginative child with a sense of adventure without relying on playgrounds etc.

We stayed at this site for five days in july and then another six days in July with out two berth caravan.

It's a great site, we stayed in the family field the first time and it was quiet the second visit we were in the field above the main site, this has fantastic views over the beach and sea.

The wardens on this site are very nice and helpful and I'd certainly recommend this site as it's only 5 maybe 10 mins walk to the excellent beach. I'd certainly go again

This was our first visit to Nant Y Big and we were very impressed. Firstly the warden was very pleasant and helpful especially with his long range weather forecast on display at the site caravan/office which was accurate.

The site is positioned down a lane near to the beautiful Porth Ceriad beach which is National Trust and about a 15 minute walk down the path and steps from the site and sometimes you will see dolphins from the cliff top and beach.

We were pitched on the family field which is close to the free showers and toilets which were always clean whenever we used them and plentifully stocked with loo rolls!

Also the showers were always hot. The weather was kind to us that (half term) week. We will definitely visit this site again with its happy, friendly atmosphere.

Reviewer: Frangirl 5 reviews from this member

Just returned from a very windy but very good trip to nant-y-big.

The campsite is on the cliff top, but there is a choice of a number of fields. I mistakenly thought the more inland family field would be more sheltered, but it wasn't! Thought the roof was going to blow off our campervan.

Mr Jones, the Warden, came over to check if we were OK in the morning, and suggested a more sheltered spot that we could move to. He was really friendly and very helpful. Eventually found a slightly better spot by a hedge, with stunning views of the sea.

Facilities are basic but just about enough, and the location on the cliff tops is well worth. Took a walk round the headland and saw Dolphins and a Seal playing in the sea!

Reviewer: Satin18 2 reviews from this member

We stayed at nant-y-big for 3 nights and we think it is great, cost 8 pounds per adult per night and 3 pounds per child per night,the showers and toilet block were great(showers very hot and free)great location for beach,there is a 10 minute walk down the lane and down the cliff steps to it but it is great once there,but no toilets.

It does state in the description that the beach is near to the site but there is a symbol saying beach on site this is not so.

Abersoch is a 5 minute drive by car a little harder to walk as there are narrow lanes with no footpaths,great place!

The only little moan I will have is that the 'family camping field' happens to be the last field from the toilets whilst 2 caravan fields are closer, think this is wrong as caravans tend to have their own toilet inside.

The washing up area also could do with being under cover but hey bit of rain never hurt anyone!

All in all will be returning to this site its a great location and very friendly!

Reviewer: Tallulahclare 1 review from this member

We are a family of four; Mum, Dad, two daughters (11 and 8) and a dog. Nant y Big is undoubtedly the best camp site we have ever used but no site is perfect. Plenty of space for tents - the site was 'full' when we stayed but there wasn't a tent within 60yds of us.

There are only two showers (which don't have lights in) but the hot water is plentiful and they are free (take a lamp with you and a chair - if like me you need to sit down to put on your socks) They are busy at the busiest times but I shower just before bed and never had to queue.

The beach is fantastic - yes, you have to walk to it - 10 mins maybe - yes, it is uphill coming back (that is the nature of beaches) if you have a dog it is perfect - there are no facilities at the beach (this is a good thing) - it is uncrowded, at times almost empty. The nearest town is Abersoch which is a beach/tourist town - plenty of places to eat and adequate shops - there is no shop on the site.

You are left alone and while we were there everyone was polite and friendly. The grond is flat, and the views fantastic (it is windy - it's on a cliff - what do you expect?) and there are loads of rabbits to chase.
