Reviewer: Corkfeet 3 reviews from this member

 We have just got back from a fantastic long bank holiday week end away. We are well seasoned campers and certainly agreed that Eisteddfa is one of the best sites we have ever been to.

On arrival Drew (the owner) was super friendly, and gave us just the right amount of information so that we could find our way around but not too much so that we could explore our selves.

The actual site was kept very tidy and even though freshly mown there was not any grass clippings at all, so the inside of our tent stayed clean as a whistle.

The toilets seemed to be cleaned a lot, and I never had to queue for the showers which again were kept very clean.

The views from the campsite are unbeatable, look one way and you have the sea and look the other way you have the mountains of snowdonia.

Criccieth village is just a 5 min drive away and is a beautiful place to spend the day. The beach is perfect for children and my nieces and Nephew loved playing in the water, crab lining off the pier and rock pooling in the fantastic rock pools that appear when the tide goes down.They even found a few good waves to body board on.

We had a fantastic meal out to celebrate my brother inlaws birthday at 'Tiffin' restaurant in Criccieth (opposite the bank), if you eat up stairs you have great views of the castle.

The wild life was a extra that we had not expected and laughed at 7am one morning when the cows started moo'ing and my 1 year old nephew started moo'ing back!

If I had to criticise, The freezer was not quite powerful enough to freeze our freezer blocks, and the top field is very windy, but it was worth it for the views.

The Play areas were perfect, and very safe.

The whole site is so gorgeous and we had a very special holiday. We will be back.

 Went for a 2 night break could of stayed for a week. The staff we really helpful, always cheerful and always around the site.

We pitched in the top tent field with brilliant views along the coast and spectacular vista of the Snowdonia range. The ground was a bit stony but rock pegs are not needed.

The toilets were always clean and toilet roll was always available, plenty of hot water was always available. Freezer facilities were good as was the pot wash. No problem with noise after 10.30 at night the quiet times were observed by everyone on site. The site is ideally situated for a short walk into Criccieth which has all the amenities that you need. Porthmadog is just a short drive away with a large Tesco for food etc.

 We have just returned from a great stay at this campsite as in the other reviews owners very friendly and keep the site well maintained. We could choose where to pitch (as we had no ehu) from two fields the views from our field (Criceith) were stunning. The shower and toilets were cleaned regularly and don't forget your 20p's for approx 4 mins.

Its is a great base for Criceith, Porthmadog and Abersoch we also visted 'Whistling Sands' beach which is about 30 mins drive but nice to visit National Trust Beach and car parking charge of 4. There are local Londis shops and garages a couple of minutes away in Cricceith if you need a bigger shop there is an Asda at Pwllheli or a Tesco in Porthmadog.

We will definitely return again and highly recommend to our friends.

 We only stayed on this campsite for 1 night as we were touring round the area, but would have been more than happy to stay for longer. The site is in a good location, easy to find, lovely views and a good base for exploring the surrounding area. The toilets,showers and washing up areas were really clean, 20p for 4 minute shower but the water was nice and hot. The site was exceptionally quiet at night which was nice.

We had a really nice sunny evening in Criccieth,you can park right down next to the beach, good walks on the beach with a castle on the hill overlooking the sea. Good beach also at black rock sands, you can actually park on the sand. Porthmadog was crowded,we didn't stay long but went on the Ffestiniog railway which we enjoyed and the dog was allowed on too!

This is a lovely family campsite in an area that has stunning scenery and great beaches.

 A spacious, family-friendly & good value site located overlooking the sea just outside Criccieth.

We pitched in the top tent field which had a great view of the sea although it was a little exposed to the wind coming up from the coast. There are no marked pitches and you are encouraged to drive around and choose the best spot.

The shower/toilet block was clean and never too busy 20p is needed for 4 minutes of shower time, but hot water always seemed to be available. Good washing up facility and freezer provided for ice packs.

The site is in a good location for exploring the Llyn peninsula with great beaches at Abersoch & Black Rock Sands.

Would definitely recommend this site.

 Just returned from spending a long weekend at this lovely site. Although we have a pretty big tent (Idaho xl) we had no trouble pitching it. There are 2 large, although not altogether flat fields, and despite the constant rain these last couple of weeks the drainage was amazing!

The site owners couldn't have been more helpful and the facilities were always clean and tidy. As mentioned before you do have to pay 20p for the showers but we got used to that.

The site itself is ideal for exploring the surrounding areas of Porthmadog, Beddgelert and Snowdonia National Park. The beaches nearby are second to none with Harlech and Black Rock Sands being our favourites.

Reviewer: Robert Poole 1 review from this member

 As a first time camper I checked out the reviews to ensure a good camp and the camp site was all what the reviews said and more.

The owners were great and couldn't do enough for you.

My daughter aged 7 thought the site was great and I had no problem letting her go to the toilet block on her own as it felt so friendly and safe.

The toilet block is very clean and the showers also. There is 2 play areas and a field that you can play football.

The one criticism is that we arrived at noon and the reception was closed stating open 9-11 and 4-6.

All in all I will be back and will recommend to friends

Reviewer: Annabel 1 review from this member

 Second visit to this site proved just as good as last time. Clean and tidy park without it being too formal( no rows of tents) plenty of space beautiful views of mountains and sea.

Kids love the play area and games room and I felt safe letting them use it! toilets very clean and no queues even though it was half term. The owners are brilliant always around and always a smile.

Location also good 30mins walk from criccith, 5min drive to shops and beach. Very relaxing site, best we have found as yet. Also good for wildlife lovers saw many different birds just on the site.

Exercise field for dog and kids is another bonus. Will use this site again, and again and again!

 I thought that it might have been very busy but there was plenty of space to be found on the fields that accommodated tents.

We chose a good time for our first time as the weather was fantastic. The views from the site were superb and the facilities were good with clean shower / toilet block and kids play area as well.

The site is also well located for Criccieth and Porthmadog where you can get your shopping done. We spent most of the time on Black Rock Sands as the weather was great and the kids loved going for a swim and crab fishing.

Would definitely recommend this site and will go back soon.

 We couldn't have asked for more! Our pitch was reserved, but we were told to drive around and have a look at the two big fields past the numbered pitches (the lovely chap at the reception said we might prefer a larger area to spread out in as we'd not camped before).

Pitched at the bottom end of the bottom field - tents all around the edge, but plenty of room.

Toilets and showers were clean, and rarely had to wait. Plenty of water points around the site (the children loved hunting for them!)

And the view was amazing!

Near enough to Asda and Tesco so that food and cooking was not an issue.

And with the absolutely brilliant weather we had, we are now definite converts.

A site we would thoroughly recommend and would definitely revisit.
