 This is a lovely quiet site once there, the entrance and narrow road up the steep hill was a little daunting.

If you meet another caravan coming down, there is no chance of passing at all!

Fantastic views, nice relaxed site with friendly owners. This was my second year here and am going back again soon for a third year.

Facilities are basic but clean, showers need 2 x 20p gives a decent shower. We have been lucky both trips here as not been to busy.

Ideal for a quiet few days walking and cycling.

 This peaceful campsite caters for tents. Caravans and motorhomes, be aware that the entrance road up to the farm is very steep and somewhat narrow. Betws-y Coed is approximately 2 miles away where an assortment of shops can be found.

The views from the site are stunning looking out over the valley and mountains.

The owner Mrs Williams seemed to be on the go all day and night, she kept the shower/toilet block clean, being in an old barn and because of trailing grass etc we saw her cleaning it at least 3 times in a day.

Being a working farm on the side of the hills the pitches are not marked out but set out between some large rocks, the owner takes you around to find the levelish pitch.

The Wc/Sh block has 2 cubicles and 2 showers (10p per 2 mins )

Both male and female, which meant there was sometimes a queue.

There is a washing up area which again can get busy.

The drinking tap is also at the facilities block, some of the pitches have E/h up.

The site is split into 2 levels the top area appeared to be slightly more level than the lower area.

Very reasonable cost for the camping and Carol and Gareth Williams are very friendly and helpful, we will be returning when we want to camp in this area again.

 Absolute gem of a site with wonderful owners (Gareth and Carol) who worked hard constantly to keep the facilities neat and clean. It's the perfect spot for a relaxing rest, whilst drinking in the gorgeous views of the mountains in Snowdonia.

We were in the upper field for 10 days and it was wonderful. Our plot was reasonably flat. It's a rustic site on a working farm so it isn't to everyone's taste, but if you want to feel a sense of freedom and salt-of-the-earth goodness, then you couldn't do better than pitch here.

Even when the site was full at the weekend, we found the showers and loos were adequate. Some people complain about the 10p per 2 mins shower but here's the thing - it keeps the system moving along nicely so we didn't end up queuing. There is a national water shortage at the moment anyway, so why spend more than 4 mins in there? 10p pieces readily available for use.

This site was full of some wonderful other campers - nearly all of whom were thoughtful and considerate to others. It was quiet after 11 pm and even though lots of serious walkers got up early to start trekking, it remained quiet until 8 am as requested by the owners.

It's not for rowdy types, nor for those who want every little luxury. However, the owners were generous with providing a large freezer for ice packs (one camper put frozen food in even though another freezer for that purpose was supplied!) and a fridge if you needed it.

There are 2 driers and a spin drier, microwave and toaster and lots of crockery if you needed to borrow it. They are generous and trusting in their hospitality and without hesitation we would camp here again.

In terms of places to visit, there was loads we didn't see but we visited the National Slate Museum at Llanberis (fascinating)and Climbed Snowdon (get to the car park by 8 am if you want a space!) and we were delighted by Llandudno in all it's elegant splendour.

It was a pleasant walk into Betws-Y-Coed along the old Drover's road and there's lots to see and do there. The Conwy Falls cafť is lovely and it was a pleasant walk down to the falls.

A good number of Europeans made the long journey up, so that goes to show that the area is definitely worth visiting and making the effort to get to.

 Stayed here for 3 nights in absolutely perfect weather. Boiling hot!

The views were stunning and our pitch was perfect. Shaded slightly by a lovely big tree. The facilities, toilets and showers were good and a washroom to clean your utilities in.

There was a pool room if that took your fancy and just a couple of miles from beautiful Betws-y-coed. Carol the owner was lovely and couldn't do enough for you. The only negative for us at least was the uphill narrow lane my son and I had to negotiate

On our motorcycles then a twisty downhill to our pitch. I got into a skid with all my gear on the back. Anyway other than that I recommend this site.

 We are currently on our last night of our stay here. After an awful experience at another campsite I nearly burst into tears when Carol gave us such a warm and lovely welcome.

We just stopped by in the hope of finding somewhere else to continue our holiday and on meeting this lady I was sold. We have stayed for three nights now and I already canít wait to visit again.

The hospitality is amazing, the views are out of this world and the amenities are perfect. No matter what time you use the toilets, showers, washing up room etc they are spotless.

The showers are lovely and warm and well priced, I spent 50p and had a gloriously long shower. The pitches are lovely, there is no set position so we found a lovely shaded spot under some trees. If you didnít want to take your own tent there are permanent fixtures to rent in the form of a bell tent, a yurt, a static caravan and a farmers hut.

The whole vibe on this campsite is lovely, there are strict no noise rules after 11pm and before 8am making for a relaxed environment for sleeping after busy and fun days.

I would recommend this campsite to anyone. Thank you for giving us back our holiday after we thought it was over.

 We returned to Rynys Farm with some friends for the third year running and it's still the stunning site it has always been.

Quite a lot of the pitches have a little bit of a slope, it's pretty rocky (bring rock pegs!) and the midges were out in force but other than that it's basically perfect.

The site is well maintained and the toilet block was spotless. You need 10p pieces for the showers. The owner is always around on site and will talk your leg off if you give her the chance!

There's two indoor sinks for washing your dishes and there's also a big tumble dryer in case stuff gets wet. In the washing up room and the dryer room, there's also a microwave, a tall fridge and freezer and loads of spare pans, cutlery and crockery in case you forget yours (there was even a bread bin, but my wife told me I couldn't take it back to the tent. )

The kids had loads of fun roaming around, there's a stream and some trees and rocky bits that they played in for hours.

It's located a short drive from Betws y Coed, which is always nice to wander round.

There's a small games room with a snooker table, but we didn't go there much.

 My new favourite campsite.

We were given a warm welcome by Carol who is both friendly and a force of nature.

Its just off the A5, easy to find, close to Betws-Y-Coed and Llanrwst. Despite the close proximity to the road you get no traffic noise at all Ė just birds and sheep.

The site was in Carolís own words a little rough around the edges. Not in a bad way just natural, not overly manicured. Itís quite hilly but with lots of flat areas - even late on the Saturday of a bank holiday we got a pitch which was not on a problematic incline. Also your not packed in tightly in rows so it all feels a lot nicer generally.

The toilet block is small but somehow, even on a busy weekend, it didnít seem as though there was ever much of a wait for a loo or shower. Whilst itís an old block it is cleaned unfathomably regularly as even when wet and a littlemuddy outside I never saw it in anything other than spotless condition.

The showers operate with 10p coins for 2 minutes use. 30p is plenty and you can get change at the house.

There is a washing up room also containing local information and a a fridge/freezer for your ice packs. There is also a collection of cups and other kitchen utensils to borrow in case you have forgotten any. Next door is a drying room + a microwave and toaster and again more kitchen utensils. And finally a pool room.

So whilst perhaps rough around the edges I cant think of a better equipped campsite I have visited.

There is no Ďplay areaí for kids, but with trees to climb, a little stream to play in the kids on site looked happier to be let free anyway.

There is also loads to do locally and 1 pub within walking distance although we didnít have an opportunity to try it out.

Itís a great site in every way Ė and despite that that doesnít over charge you the way many do these days Ė we will be back same time next year hopefully.

 By far the best campsite in Snowdonia and one of the best in the UK! I have been coming to wales for 20 years and have tried out so many sites and this one is without a doubt the best one I have stayed at. Carol and Gareth truly care about their campers and the facilities they have.

We try go to this site at least once a year for either a long weekend or a week away and we have never been disappointed. Our most recent visit in was earlier this year in March when we had all the snow and we were the only people crazy enough to be camping! But what a wonderful experience it was.

The site is in a truly spectacular location with beautiful views all around the site. The site is always spotless, Carol and Gareth look after the facilities, cleaning them multiple times a day. Not only are the showers and toilets on site but there's a very useful kitchen area and also a room with a pool table too which is great on rainy days.

The natural feel to the site is great and is world's apart from all your other standard touristy campsites which have flat fields and no character. You're able to camp where you want and park your car next to the tent which I really love and not many sites allow this.

Not only is the site well kept but it's in a great location too. Minutes away from Betws-y-Coed and a short drive to both Pen-y-pass and Ogwen valley, so there's plenty of walking available and cafes/restaurants to grab food at after a day out in the hills.

Reviewer: Martandjo 1 review from this member

 We've stayed here many, many times over the past few years and never had a bad experience. Most of the times' previous were at Easter/Whit or Summer and so the weather was nice.

This time, the weather was windy and soggy but that doesn't detract from the tranquillity and ambience of the site. We pretty much had the place to ourselves given the time of year and weather, but even though it was near enough empty, the facilities were as we've come to expect, spotlessly clean and well cared for. As usual, the owners couldn't have been more welcoming.

We're looking forward to our next stay 

Date of Visit: August 2017 Unit:  Static
Reviewer: Cabates 1 review from this member

 Having stayed at this site in a rather wet & windy August 2016 with our tent we decided this year to hire the static caravan that is on site.

On both occasions the owners have been very welcoming.

The caravan was comfortable with a few extra touches added. The site is kept to a high standard.

A great place to stay for exploring North Wales!
