 We were fortunate enough to get a sea view pitch for our two nights here and we were not disappointed.

Finding the site was a breeze, well signposted. Before arrival we received an email clearly explaining how to check in and where the pitch would be.

On arrival it was easy to find the pitch and the views across the sea were incredible.

Campsite was kept clean and despite the number of other campers it was very quiet at night, wind and waves not withstanding!

Overall a very good experience and am going to recommend to friends and family.

 Sea view and surrounding backdrop of hills was great, facilities clean, but food only available at weekends (pizza, waffles, etc), lack of nearby shop or pub made us drive more than we like to, once we arrive and get setup.

Near to Caernarfon for a day out which we enjoyed - good job we had a car as well as the campervan.

Walk down to the beach and around the lovely green and wooded site was perfect for the dog.

Beware the exposed position of pitches nearer the sea if the weather turns!

Pitches are large but number signs quite small, smaller satellite toilet and warship stations very convenient when pitched away from main shore block.

Best in good weather, we thought.

 Its a little peace of heaven! Sea and beach one side, hills and greenery on the other.

No fires allowed which I enjoy but did see fire pits along the beach.

Very peaceful stay, lovely hosts and very affordable, £12. 50 per night for me and my dog.

I will be returning with family and friends to share this little piece of paradise.

Stony beach but if you walk round the cove you will find a sandy beach.

 Stayed over the August Bank Holiday weekend with family and friends. We were in a touring caravan. Checking in was easy, we knew our pitch before we arrived and just had to text the owners on arrival.

As others have written about, the lane down to the site is narrow but passable with our large single axle van. You need to follow the sites advice about passing the entrance, turning at the roundabout and approaching from the other side as you’ll not make the turn through the narrow gate way.

Once on-site the pitch we were allocated was a good size and we noticed all pitches were within easy access of the nearest facilities. Facilities were good and clean.

Showers were nice and hot. They are operated by 20p coins. They take about 5 secs to heat up.

The location was lovely, the views are stunning and the beach was perfect for our family’s various paddle boards and kayaks.

We enjoyed our stay so much we will definitely be back.

 A well set out site which instead of 1 big field the area is spilt across several smaller ones with a steam running around and throughout the lower sites. There are pitches with shelter from the wind and others which are exposed but offer fantastic views.

The grass is kept short making pitching easy. Pitch sizes are good too which includes both electric and and those without. The ground is easy to hammer pegs into but solid enough to secure them. Our pitch had a 10amp supply which is enough for 2300 watts. We used a plug in portable 2000 watt induction hob to cook and heat water without issue.

Access to the pebble beach is directly from the campsite. Each night people sit around campfires on the beach whilst watching the sunset.

The toilets and showers are kept clean throughout the day. The main block is next to the first camping spots as you drive in and there are supplementary toilets near the beach which is also where you will find the washing up facilities and chemical toilet disposal.

Rubbish is left in a large skip near reception with cardboard and paper recycling next to it.

Access is via a narrow road once you leave the main road. A few passing points but be prepared to reverse and give way, there is a helpful mirror on the worst bend to give an indication of it's clear or not.

You can see rabbits running around the site which is lovely to see. At night you can watch the bats fly past as they eat their fill of insects.

The night sky during a clear spell is amazing. The milky way is easily visible as are deep sky objects. I'll certainly be taking my telescope next time!

There are shops but you'll most likely need to drive. Londis approx a mile away and has a petrol station but on the pricey side.

Tesco supermarket no fuel station is a 15 minute drive towards Caernarfon and has good stocks but not as much as a Tesco Extra. There is a Tesco Extra in Bangor should you need one along with an Asda and both have filling stations.

 We absolutely loved this site.

The pitches we were given were generous in size and in a great spot close to the beach, perfect for young children.

The toilet facilities were close by and cleaned regularly.

The site itself was clean and well maintained and close to some local amenities.

Communication from the owners was great, we had everything we needed and enjoyed a wonderful 2 nights.

We will definitely return.

 Absolutely beautiful site so close to the sea, great for those with dogs and young children.

The small play area on site was a brilliant addition.

One of the main reason we as a family love the site is the cleanliness, toilet blocks are cleaned throughout the day on multiple occasions and are always perfectly clean!

Our second trip to this site this year and we will definitely be back again next year!

 Stunning campsite with great sea and beach views.

Friendly and very well laid out with a great mix of different sorts of sites depending on how much protection you want from the wind,

V dog friendly and lovely people running the site.

A longish way from any pubs but not a problem for me.

 Amazing holiday. The site is very close to the beach but entrance to the site is a bit hairy! Although the beach is very rocky not easy to walk on.

The showers on site are few. The toilet blocks and showers were lovely and clean. Can't fault the site as long as you like simple.

Nice to have a catering fan a few nights a week. If you don't want to travel there isn't a great deal of shops/ restaurants around.

Owners were very friendly. I can't comment on child friendliness as we didn't see any as they were back at school but there was a play area for them. For us it was great.
