 A glorious Easter weekend spent in fantastic Wales - we're not sure whether to let the secret of Rynys Farm out to the public. This is the second time we've been to this site, and will return again - we just love it.

Carol, the site owner is brilliant and makes you feel immediately at home. Last time we were here, she even kept an eye on our tent for us in the gales while we were out! The site has lots of space and is never filled up - preferring to keep the facilities available and generous pitches rather than cramming tents in for profit.

We requested and were reserved a space in the top field with EHU and fantastic views across to the Snowdon range and down into the Gwydyr forest, though remember to pack your rock pegs - we forgot ours - as the ground is hard below the grassy surface.

The facilities are spotless, and there is an additional toilet block in th top field, which although basic is also spotless and very convenient; the only time I saw a queue was when there was a group of about 20 Duke of Edinburgh teenagers in, who were endlessly polite, and no problems at all.

There isn't much for kids on the site - a pool room and lots of space to run about, but then it's in the heart of the Welsh mountains, so if you're like us, you won't be at home much anyway preferring to play in the hills instead!

The nearest pub is the Silver Fountain, just down the road - food is apparently good, but the choice of beer may not appeal as there is no hand pulled real ale available. We preferred to pop into Betws (2 miles down the road) and frequent the Stables Bar which offers good value food in generous portions and a range of real ale to wash it all down.

A first rate site in our opinion offering excellent value for money (66 for 2 adults & 2 children for 3 nights with electric over a Bank Holiday weekend). Carol doesn't ask for payment upfront, just settle up when you leave - she is aware that the Welsh weather can curtail holidays with little warning and doesn't believe in you paying for what you haven't had. Also worthy of mention are the eggs available from the farmhouse - you've tasted nothing better!

We'll be back again and again to Rynys Farm. It's just idyllic.

 We knew nothing about this site apart from what we read on their web site, and booked on the strength of that.

We had trouble finding the site at first because our sat nav led us the wrong way, but once we got back on the A5 it was easy to find.

The site itself is quite large and on the days we stayed (Royal Wedding weekend)it got very busy, and is on a slop, however the pitches are level.

There are electric hookups for tents as well as caravans and motorhomes.

A converted barn is divided into 5 areas:-

Pool Room

Ladies Toilet / Showers (two of each)

Gents Toilet / Showers (two of each)

Washing up area with two large sinks. Two freezers for ice packs and plenty of information for the surrounding area and beyond.

Drying room, with spin dryer, tumble dryer and a microwave.

The showers take 10 pence coins and I found 30p was more than enough.

The owners are very friendly and show you to your pitch. They also sell fresh eggs. The bins are emptied on a regular basis.

The site is well maintained and clean.

You have to travel at least 5 miles to the nearest shops, but the owners have kindly made a list of the nearest amenities.

Conway falls is opposite the site entrance.

Although children are welcome to the site there is no playground for them.

I will certainly go back to this site and would recommend it to others.

 This site was a little bit expensive I thought but still worth going to. The lady was very helpful seeing as we had forgotten our mattress pump, but she had a spare one which we would could use and she also gave us a jump start before we left seeing as my car battery was dead. The showers cost 10p for 2 minutes worth of hot water which was a bit annoying because the meter you put your money in was outside the door in the toilets and you cannot put anything other than a 10 pence piece in it so you better hope no one else is in there with you, cost me about 50 pence all together for a decent shower. Dogs cost 50p per night also which I though was quite a fair price. The views though I thought were absolutely stunning. Overall this site is well worth the visit, we will definitely be going back.

 Arrived mid afternoon and met by a small smiley lady called Carol (the owner) showed us to places where we could pitch, and appeared a minute later with an extension lead which she set up ready to use. This lady was amazing, forever emptying bins and checking her guests were ok.

First the views, fantastic, best I've ever seen, pitches, mostly flat and totally regimented. The toilets and showers were clean and perfectly suitable.I asked what time we should vacate our pitch when leaving, when your ready, came the reply.

If you holiday in North Wales, stay here for a day or two, and be enchanted.

 This is a fantastic site with breath taking views and a convenient location. Carol and Gareth the owners are brilliant, they are friendly and laid back asking that you pay the night before you leave and leaving change for the showers by the front door.

The pot washing room has lots of local restaurant menus pinned up, leaflets for local attractions and helpful tips for hiking around the local landscape. For example, there are maps of the walks up Snowdon and they have typed up their preferred route with information about parking, climb duration and sights.

There is a room with washer and dryer, timed plug sockets for hair dryers, styling irons etc and microwave. Showers are cheap at 10p for two minutes and the showers and toilets are kept spotless and have a quaintness about them.

If you are planning a trip to Betws-y-Coed, climbing Snowdon or nipping to North Wales generally I strongly recommend Carol and Gareth's site, you will not regret it and like me and my partner, you will be planning your next visit before you have completed your first!

 Lovely site with fabulous views. We had a choice of places to pitch and there was plenty of room even though it was the middle of the summer holidays. Bathroom facilities while not luxurious were always clean. I wouldn't recommend trying to take a shower with a toddler, next time I think I will stick her in a washing up bowl!

Loads of places to go in every direction and the use of a freezer for cool blocks and a microwave and toaster came in very handy. Not a noisy site despite the woman in the next tent bawling at her kids all the time (even when they needed the loo at 1am!) Can't choose your neighbours when your camping!

Carol was lovely and came and checked on everyone after we had a torrential thunder storm early one morning. Great trip.

 This was our second visit to this campsite this year and we will definitely be going back again, we have also recommended to our friends. The site is so Quiet and views are fantastic, the toilet block/dishwashing area/drying room was always clean and tidy, the fact that it's a converted barn really adds to the charm of the place and Carole the owner is lovely. We liked the fact that she doesn't allow any music at all and no noise after 11pm, although there is'nt a kids play area as such the kids on the site kept them selves amused. Its nice that in such a lovely area we found a campsite that takes dogs and has a walk from the campsite that you can use for them. This site is ideal for energetic walker planning to do Snowdon and also the more relaxed pace keepers who just want to tour around, we found that from the site we really didn't have more than an hour to travel to reach anything.

 Cracking site and good value at 12.50 for the wife and I and our dog. We only stayed for one night but will return to camp next time if we are in the area. A friendly lady named Carol gave us all the info we needed and left us alone to pitch the tent, but told us not to rush out the next morning because the site was quiet. The facilities are good and very clean and not too far away from the tent area. Betws-Y-Coed is a beautiful area to go for a day or a longer break and the site is only 5 minutes away from the town centre which has numerous shops and also a train station if any backpackers decide to come here by public transport. You are very central for Snowdonia or even the North Wales coastal area. If you want peace, tranquillity and a view to die for come here! We will return again sometime soon.

 A gorgeous site in a gorgeous position. The views are terrific and, although only a half mile off the A5, you could be in the middle of nowhere. The pitches are very well spaced, (although you can pitch several tents together if you want) large and small, and definitely not 'regimented'. I wondered if we'd need rock pegs, being on a mountain side, but normal pegs are fine. The wind can blow across the site so make sure you have some decent pegs. After extraordinary rainfall there were a few spongy patches but the owner knew all about them and offered pitches that were dry.

The facilities, although 'rustic', are fine and, while we were there, never crowded. Carol, the owner, is all that a site owner should be, cheery and helpful. The whole site is run with a laid back feeling, 10p pieces and free-range eggs left on the reception windowsill etc. Having turned up without notice, we were told we could stay as long as we wished, just pay when you are ready to leave.

The walk into Betws-Y-Coed is enjoyable and, of course, there are dozens of walks in the surrounding area. The cafe at the bottom of the hill has sofas to lounge on and there are computers with free internet access to get the weather forecast. If you need outdoor clothing or equipment, Betws-Y-Coed has the biggest concentration of outdoor shops I've ever seen. The chippy and cafes aren't bad either. If (when) we return to Snowdonia this will be our campsite of choice.

 Just got back from a 10 day stay at Carol's gem of a campsite, we loved it.

Facilities at the site are more than adequate and the surrounding area is ideal with a feeling of being remote yet within reach of towns and villages for supplies.

The owner Carol could not be more friendly and we were surprised to hear not to pay at the beginning of our stay and see how things go with the weather! What a refreshing change, this is the sort of thing that will keep me going back time after time.

My six year old enjoyed himself thoroughly and was able to go off and play with other children around the stream, trees etc without the usual need for constant supervision I feel is required on other sites I have visited.

We ventured off on many local walks, some from the site and the scenery is just stunning.

Our experience of the local pubs/restaurants was good and would highly recommend The Conwy Falls at the weekend for their stone baked pizza and relaxed friendly service, but who needs to go out to eat when you can BBQ in such glorious surroundings.

All in all a wonderful camping experience and we didn't even have the weather, will be going back without doubt.
