Met by owners who were very helpful and friendly. Absolutley stunning views, by far the best we have seen for a long time. Pitches however not the best, size was good but when it came to try and level the motorhome it took a lot of doing. All the pitches are sloping but some better than others.

There is one toilet/shower which was in a small breeze block building at the back of their property. Whilst it was clean there was no tiling on the walls or floor but worse than that was no heating and as it was -1 during our stay it really was very unpleasant. I'm sure a simple wall heater would make this so much better. Its a shame as this let our stay down massively

A great site with views over the mountains, backed by Snowdon and Moel Siabod on the skyline.

We had a great welcome from the owners, who could not have been more helpful. Approach best from A494 through Llanwchllyn village, the final bit being a quite steep hill. Because of this we did not visit the pub, which also does not appear to have a car park suitable for motorhomes. As a result we used the motorhome for Local transport, but found parking in Bala ok. There is a 2 hourly bus within 300 yards, to Wrexham or Dolgellau.

Great value for money.

This is a lovley site with friendly owners Roy and Joan,

We were booked to stay 4 nights but stayed 6.

We were welcomed with a pack full of information on where to go and what to see also walks.

We were shown on arrival the facilities Toilet and shower what was always clean, One toilet and shower with a wash basin the site was full but did not have a problem waiting for a shower,

We were shown were the bins were, elsan point and water,

Some of the pitches are sloping but we didn't have a problem

Roy and Joan were on site if anyone had a problem,

There were chickens in pens and you can buy the eggs,

The views are amazing.

5 mins walk to the railway station.

About 3 or 4 mile to Bala.

We had a lovely stay and would recommend this site,

(It is a Adult only site)

Great site, up on the side of the valley at the head of Bala lake.

16 amp electrics, all caravan and motorhome pitches are well spaced and hard standing and level on the side plane but may need some blocks for the nose on some. (Supplied if needed).

This is a quiet site with fantastic views and sunsets, we saw a amazing painted sunset while we were there. These cannot be guaranteed if the weather is bad. :) We were met by Roy and Joan who gave us a welcome pack which contained loads of information you might need while staying, including a selection of walks in the area.

There is recycling on site. Also for sale, fresh eggs from the chickens on site. (Kept in pen and no noisy cockerels)

Note the shower and toilet are in the same room both were immaculate along with a wash basin and with a single solid locking door.

Also note, the grass is kept short and clippings collected. There's a good phone and tv signal, though the free-view channels are somewhat limited.

The Bala lake Train station is just below the site, in the village. You can hear it, s whistle occasionally. There are low flying fast jets using the valley and surrounding area's and though they can be noisy again it's only occasionally and only in working hours. Not weekends ( It's the RAF ). I enjoyed watching them and even got a wave from a low fly Hercules, they're the big quiet ones.

Too eat, there's the Eagles Inn in the village, though we never got chance to try it, and there are various pubs and cafes in Bala. Cost at the time of writing was 15 with electric. Worth every penny.

Access is easy if you use the A494 through Bala and come through the village of Llanuwchllyn onto the B4403, instead of the sat nav's first choice, which is the back route along the lake of the B4403.

Our first visit to beautiful Snowdonia made all the more enjoyable by site owners Joan & Roy who offer a warm welcome and a relaxed and ordered environment. Shower and toilet facilities were always pristine and recycling facilities clearly identified. Bryn Awel offers panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and Lake Bala and is well situated for easy access to Snowdon and all that North Wales has to offer.

The village pub, the Eagle Inn doubles up as a local store for essentials but Bala is only a few miles away and has a Co-op amongst its range of shops. We will be going back to Snowdonia and back to Bryn Awel.

This was our first time on a certified site. We were therefore wondering what to expect on a site which offered basic facilities according to the publication on the internet. Knowing the area, where we were staying, even if the site did not live up to our hopes we were confident we could fill our time there. We arrived in the rain on a Sunday afternoon. We climbed the fairly steep hill and drive to the camping area and were greeted by the owners! They made every effort to help but not overpower us on arrival and I fact for the rest of our stay.

The views were stunning the only noise was the animals birds and through the day the miniature train tooting at the station in the village below. Oh and for plane spotters the aircraft which put on a superb display now and again.

This is a must return to site with a new toilet and free hot shower and a must recommend to others site. Thank you Joan and Roy for a peaceful break. See you again for definite.

Visited this site for Easter got a fabulous welcome and able to pick our pitch with fantastic views. The owner shown us amenities and made us and our son very welcome showing us all the fantastic views and pointing out things for our son to see. Later the other owner came over when she got back to introduce herself and give us welcome pack with all walks and visitor attractions nearby. They both made the whole of our stay lovely with little chats and gave us ideas of things to do. Gem of a site already booked to return in May

Booked for Easter bank holiday weekend - from first contact to final departure the hosts Joan and Roy were incredibly welcoming, and helpful. The hard standing pitches were large, pretty level, and well spaced with wonderful views.

The toilet/shower was spotlessly clean and a great addition for those with no facilities. The hosts were fantastic with our two preschool children allowing our four year old to pet their rabbits. It was lovely to be able walk to the Bala Lake railway from the site and not have to take the car out for the day. We will be certain to return;a great find!

Beautiful little site with views to die for.

On arrival we received our very warm welcome from the site owners who showed us where everything was (water, toilet etc).

The site was very well kept with short, clean and flat grass, and a number of hard standings for caravans. We didn't use the sites toilet or shower so I can't comment, but it was clean and welcoming when I was shown where it was.

Locally Bala town has a small Co-op for your shopping or essentials are available from the pub in the village, which also happens to serve the best Steak and Ale pie I have ever tasted. A pint of purple moose is also something not to be missed if you enjoy real ales.

Bala lake railway is only a 5min walk (you can see the station from the site), and with the whole Snowdonia National park on your door step, there is lots to see and do.

We found a good mobile (EE) 3G signal on the site, and a basic range of freeview channels available, but due to the trees and mountains I doubt a satellite signal will be available.

The site has full 16A supply so no having to boil the kettle on the cooker.

Unfortunately the site is too small for older children to play ball games, but that is about the only negative I could find.

We will definitely return due to the friendly nature of the owners, the views, as we found it an ideal base for exploring North Wales
