 Just got home from a fantastic few days at this lovely site.

Location is beautiful and only a short walk to the fantastic beaches.

The site itself is well kept by the friendly and helpful owners.

We have left talking about when we can go again!

 An absolute gem of a site. The site is perfectly situated for the Ty Coch inn and lovely coastal walks.

We received a very friendly welcome and a choice of pitches - as we had booked hardstanding, but we were offered a grass pitch as the views were better.

Glad we opted for the grass pitch (with electric) as we were fortunate to witness the most gorgeous sunset. There is a small spar shop within walking distance - about 15 mins and a couple of pubs which seem to open when they like.

The site was very quiet at night; with a good mix of campers; caravaners and motorhomes all respecting the 11pm quiet time. You have to pay 50p for the showers which is a bit inconvenient.

My only gripe was although the site is very dog friendly, there are no poo bins anywhere.

Overall, excellent value for money.

Big site that looks very new and smart and is obviously a work in progress. Big open fields and everyone given a big plot. Woman (owner?) on reception very very friendly and helpful. Good washing up area and laundry room.

Fields have been designed with double fences everywhere to create wildlife areas - which is very admirable BUT (see below). Good price £20 without electricity, £26 with. Microwave ovens for free use to campers. Site very very clean and tidy.


Smart new shower block, toilets, shop, cafe but needs to be redesigned. Only 4 showers and 4 toilets (per gender) for 1000s of people - not enough. And a very long way for people to walk as no other toilet/shower block. Bins also miles for people to walk and not signed. Not enough water points and not easy to find. Wifi didn't work.

Double fences for wildlife areas are a real nuisance and gaps need to be added to allow people to get through. Families climbing over the wire fences and will ruin them - but if you don't climb over it is a very long way around. We were only here 2 nights but were fed up of walking right round to go to the shower/toilet block. Why no gaps?

Reception gave us a list of rules on entry, which said all dogs on leads, and no ball games etc, but dogs running about freely and kids playing football etc everywhere. Didn't bother us, but would bother some. (We are dog owners) It could get wild on busy weekends possibly.

Finding the site - Not easy to find site from main road. Signs not clear and there is a sign at the entrance that says 'private road, no access' at the entrance to the site! Terribly potholed and rough road (1/2 mile long) from main road to site.

Potentially a great site but really needs a rethink. Could be a fantastic site in a beautiful location. Not far from golf course, and walkable to Porthdinllaen which is a stunning little hamlet with great pub and beach. May2022

 Ideally site for sea and sand shops petrol station with great takeaway food and all essentials that you need fish and chip shop also excellent.

The site itself has excellent facilities as well as a kitchen area that if you want a morning coffee you can get one to take away as well as microwaves if you wish to cheat on cooking.

Showers and toilets very clean all that you need for a camping experience thoroughly enjoyed by two grandchildren that had never been camping before on list for next years trip👍👍👍

 Couldn't recommend highly enough.

This place is great. 15 mins walk to the beach and the world famous Ty coch inn.

Lovely village and the ship inn is a must.

Great clean facilities.

Off the floor fires allowed. Much enjoyed trip by all 👍

Great size pitches and plenty water points and electric hook ups.

Thanks for an amazing stay

 Lovely big site, mostly static vans, but area for tents motorhomes and caravans. Lots of open space.

Tracey very friendly and helpful. There are lovely facilities toilets, showers (50p) and laundry.

There is on on site Kiosk for burgers and ice cream. Lovely views and walks from the site.

For £30 a night I would expect the showers to be free.

 Stayed for the weekend, having not been in a tent since I was a child.

Had a fantastic stay, only wished we had booked for longer.

The location of the site is fantastic, with great views of the sea / coast and golf course. Modern clean facilities, well looked after and well run.

Will be returning as soon as possible - for longer! ;-)

 Lovely site. Beautiful place. Flat ground. Easy pegging. New and expanding it seems to me (2021 now), so teething issues with increased bookings.

In future years sure they'll nail it, but there was confusion with our booking. Right now the site quality is good, but needs better pressure for field water taps, and more than 2 male toilets.

A stricter no noise policy would be more welcome for those who break the 11pm no music curfew, but you get this on all sites and it's hard for management to control.

 An amazing campsite within walking distance to the beach. We explored the many coves that Morfa Nefyn has to offer.

I would highly recommend the coastal path in which you can join from the campsite! Beautiful sunsets to be seen.

We were put in a lovely corner pitch which was nice and flat so perfect for cooking. There is a shop just down the road which has everything you need.

The staff were friendly and welcoming.

I would definitely go again.
