 Beautiful site situated in a valley overlooked by Snowdonia. Toilets were clean. Lynn was very helpful. Microwave and fridge are an excellent addition.

Only issue was not knowing fires were out at 11 pm. Were having the perfect evening. Threw an extra few logs on the fire before 11 only to be told it was out by 11.

All in all a perfect spot.

 First time visiting the site. Loved every minute of it. Children especially loved bottle feeding the lambs and the park.

The staff were really friendly. The views were breathtaking.

The toilet and showers were basic but always clean and the utility room was great as it was equipped with a microwave and a large fridge/ freezer.

All in all I would highly recommend this site. We will deffo be back 😀

 Met at the front gate by a very nice warden.

Big pitch on a spacious site with very clean and tidy facilities,

This was perfect for me and my short stay, but I'd happily stay for longer, this is a great campsite.

 The staff were very friendly, the campsite was in a great location close to Snowdon and Llanberis and has good facilities with lots of space.

There is a nice pub a 15 minute walk away that serves great food and drinks.

 Spent the weekend at this AMAZING campsite with a friend for a planned weekend of walking Snowden. There is nothing to fault at this site and from the minute you arrive are made to feel welcome.

We were greeted by Kathy who was warm and friendly and showed us to our pitch. We experienced an issue with the electric hook up which didn't appear to be working, however on reporting this it was resolved within 10 minutes and back up and running.

There isn't a shop per se, however on realizing that my friend had forgotten his sleeping bag they were able to sell me a(extremely reasonably priced)sleeping bag and informed me that they stock one of most popular forgotten essentials - we were amazed and extremely grateful.

The rental of fire pit and logs was a real treat and as most other reviews highlight the luxury of hot, clean showers was much welcomed and the views were outstanding.

If you're looking for a peaceful retreat in the most beautiful unspoiled countryside with friendly staff and clean facilities this is the campsite for you!

 Out first trip out in our new (to us) campervan - 3 nights over Easter 2018 at Tyn-Yr-Onnen.

The road in is a narrow single track but does have passing places.

We were greeted on arrival by a very friendly Len the farmer who explained where everything was and showed us to our pitch.

There are 2 shower/toilet blocks both which are modern and clean and lots of hot water (one block also has a family shower room). There are only 2 showers in each of the toilet blocks and I can imagine it getting a bit busy in peak season. The only minor negative I can say about the whole site and our stay is that there is no coin operated hairdryer or a plug for your own hairdryer in either of the toilet blocks.

There is also a utility room for washing up which also has laundry facilities and A TV room with pool table and table tennis (which we didn't use but seemed popular with teenagers).

There is a good sized play park for the children which our 2 loved. It is right next to the utility room so they could play while we werehed the dishes and the park is also next to the donkey field.

On our first morning, we bumped into Len the farmer at the shower block who informed us that he was about to feed a couple of lambs that were being bottle fed and would we like to help. My 2 boys were absolutely thrilled to help and they fed one lamb each. Considering it was the middle of a cold and wet lambing season and they were a farm-hand short, the staff had lots of time for us. Then Len showed us the pigs and piglets and the chickens - my 2 boys were given an egg each for breakfast. The staff on the farm and campsite were so friendly and helpful and they have a shop on site selling essentials as well as local product from the farm and other local farms.

The weather was not great over Easter but we still had a lovely time. We has a lovely afternoon walking in Beddgelert where we ate out, we also had a trip into Caernarvon Castle, both which are only short drives away. On out last morning we stopped for a walk around Parc Dudley - a local nature reserve about a mile from the site which was a nice short circular walk.

There is a pub (also serves food) which is about just under a mile from the site - we didn't walk it as the weather was not great but we did speak to others on the site who has walked there.

We will definitely be returning in the summer.

They have a couple of static caravans and cabins that they hire out which we are contemplating for my in laws to join us camping over the summer.

 This is a fabulous campsite. We recieved a very pleasant welcome from the site owner and were shown where all facilities were and had a choice of areas to camp. We chose the 3rd field as we could have a fire and electric hook up. Fire baskets are mandatory to protect the grass and to provide campers with more options to pitch - no having to pitch the tent over someone else's ashes! These can be rented from the office and seasoned logs can be purchased at 4 a bag (very reasonable).

Showers are amazing! Always with hot water, no button pushing required and they are free of charge so no need to carry a ridiculous amount of change. These were spotless. Exactly what you need after a hike up Snowdon via the Watkin Path!

There are washing up facilities on site which again, were very clean, along with a washing machine and tumble drier (additional cost but minimal) should you need to wash or rather dry your kit after a day on the hills.

There is a small shop on site which carries the essentials. As this is a working farm, local produce can be purchased (eggs, bacon etc. ) but I would recommend letting them know in advance if you want this daily as it's so tasty, it gets snapped up quick. If you want a real treat, ask to buy their locally produced Rib-Eye steak. SIMPLY AMAZING! (we brought some home). Tesco, Morrisons etc. Are a 10 minute drive into Caernarfon.

This site is ideal for exploring the national park and has fantastic views of the local hills (the elephant being the main one). The approach road is a narrow single track but has passing places.

We don't have children but there were adequate facilities and our friends brought carrots in advance to feed the donkeys (food can be purchased for them on site at 20p!).

We got to meet a week old lamb courtesy of one of the young ladies from the farm and were invaded by a mother and child who had escaped from another field (these were no trouble). This resulted in us getting to see the sheepdogs in action which was really cool.

We absolutely loved this place and will definitely be back.

 Our first camping trip in our 22 yr Old campervan and all went well apart from the weather.

Shower and toilet blocks clean as long as the 2 girl terrors hadn't been in throwing toilet roll all over like steamers ( some parents have no control). Lovely view from site over the hills and numerous people having bbqs and campfires really added to atmosphere late at night.

Be warned some websites say pub is local but in reality its a mile walk mainly on unlit single track road but decent pub when you get there.

Reviewer: Heather38 1 review from this member

 We've just had a 6 night stay here and we had a lovely time.

The site is a mixture of tents and vans, over 3 fields.

There are 2 shower blocks, one is older and a bit grubbier but they were cleaned daily and the showers were hot and free.

We were in the bottom field which is on a slope but you can have an open fire which was great. They sell bags of wood in the office for 4.

The playground and TV room were well used by our children and they made lots of new friends. They also enjoyed the animals and there were sheep and chickens wondering about amongst the tents.

Beware the lane to the campsite is very narrow and twisty so keep your speed down and you may need to reverse to a Passing place

There is no shop locally so you need to go into Caernarfon to buy essentials, there is a Morrisons, asda and Tesco so lots of choice.

Our trip was spoilt by a large group arriving on the Friday and setting up what can only be described as a small village, they had a huge fire and were playing loud music until well after 11pm. We did complain but nothing was done and it happened the next night again.

We probably won't return because of this, which is a pity as its only 2 hours from home so ideal for short breaks

 We had a fantastic few days at this campsite. We were specifically looking for a site where you could have campfires and have electric hook up (which narrowed things down rather a lot) I was very pleased to have found this site. Beautiful surroundings, relaxed atmosphere(the farm dog who wonders round camp is a real sweetie!), very reasonably priced and the best camping showers (which were also free) I have ever had the pleasure of! Boiling hot and no stupid button to push every 30 secs! Very welcome after a walk up Snowdon!
