 Been here before and loved it. Here again a few years later, it was a relaxing brake for me and my 9 year old grandson.

There are lovely walks through the woods and a nice walk to beddgelert.

Facilities on site very clean, on site shop making food, we had a nice pizza.

We were on hard standing in woods, we had good weather and it was nice to be woken by the birds.

Would definitely come again

 Very friendly and caring staff, location of course excellent (it is in Snowdonia after all))

Mens showers, although clean, they are in need of updating to bring it up to the standard of the rest of the facilities provided.

Thank you

 I have not been to this site since it changed over, prior to that, I was a regular visitor, over the years.

There has been changes, the introduction of Log cabins. Log cabins on the old EHU for tents, to be fair, this area use to become water logged and mushed up and other areas. They do look smart and blend into the environment.

The grass pitches for tents, has new improved parking, keeping cars of the field, there is only a distance to wherever you want to pitch, so no hardship. Only a short walk to the facilities.

Plenty of hot water for showers total bliss, yes push button, no issue, all about saving water, plus shower gel dispensers as well. The washing up, laundry, DCP are in the same block, plus canine shower.

There has been work in reception, a small shop, buy various drinks, basic foods those little items, at times can be forgotten.

The bike hire, Adventure place has moved onto the site in addition of the option of a takeaway, can pre order breakfast and from the bakery.

All the staff where friendly and helpful.

Definitley a big improvement around the site, albeit fewer tent pitches, however tents can be pitched on hard standing plus EHU.

Certainly return, still one of my favourite sites.

Walks galore for all, plenty of trails for walkers and mountain bikers.

Great base for the surrounding area.

The play area has gone, however they seem to provide activities for children.

 I had stayed in Beddgelert campsite a few years ago, so this was a second visit. It's a great base for Snowdonia activities.

Since last visit it's focused more on forest cabins, which look very smart, but if you are in a tent the only facilities block is a significant walk and not signposted, which was a bit of a pain for being on period.

The facilities block could do with some little details like a bin in the ladies shower block (the only one is for nappies only) and decent mirrors but the showers were warm and clean. One of the showers is very powerful and warm, the next one has far less pressure so pick carefully.

The tent field is lovely, but there are a lot of midges from the river.

I'd also suggest more signage in general, to the toilet block, opening hours for the shop, the start of the path to Beddgelert etc.

The opening hours for the shop were a bit of a surprise for a campsite (8. 30-5) and you have to pre-order pastries the day before so easy to get caught out on the little things (it is written in the leaflet).

The food at the "bakehouse" was great, get in early.

 Beautiful location in amongst the forest. Everything you need on site, well stocked shop, bakery and cycle hire. A walkers paradise, ideal place if youíre looking to climb Mount Snowdon.

Lots of pathways through the woods in every direction except into the lovely village of Beddgelert. If you want to walk it, you need to take to the road which can be busy at times and there are no pavements.

The village has a variety of eating places to choose from, a popular ice cream parlour and a small shop for all your essentials. Facilities are kept clean with hot, powerful showers despite being the push button type.

The pitch sizes was ideal for my campervan but looked a bit tight for a caravan plus car.

Its the second time Iíve stayed there and I would definitely go back.

 I used the grass camping pitch which is set in an open area surrounded by woodland.

The site is in a beautiful setting with a river flowing along two sides. While it is fairly undulating, it's fairly easy to find a relatively flat area to set up. There are plenty of handy picnic tables dotted around the site.

No cars are allowed on the grass (which is a good point) and there is only room for 6 or 7 cars in the parking area; so, there were times when I had to use the main car park near reception.

It's a 3 minute walk to the main shower and toilet facilities although there is a unisex toilet next to reception at half the distance (but watch out for the tree roots in the night). Unfortunately, the showers are of the push button type so are uncontrollable. On three of the eight nights that I stayed, I had to endure cold showers as the hot water had run out.

For a lone camper like me in a small backpacking tent, it was quite expensive; I was charged the same price as two people sharing a house sized family tent, which seemed unfair, especially as there are no marked out pitches.

The shop and bakehouse proved useful and it's only a 20 minute walk to Beddgelert if using the road, or 40 minutes if taking the scenic footpath.

All in all, I enjoyed my stay, just a shame about the showers.

 Very disappointing. Overpriced and facilities are tired and in need of a major upgrade.

Toilets and showers are old and water never more than luke warm. Pitch sizes and access vary and are mainly under large trees.

Only one motorhome service point and the grey water drain was blocked throughout our stay.

 Lovely back to nature site with lots of extras, from the forest retreat with the roaring fire and supplies to the bake house, I can recommend the gourmet burger.

We were given a choice of any free pitch to set up at. If taking an awning or tent youíll need rock pegs.

The pitches are hard standing in the trees, EHU is included with the pitch, along with Free WIFI.

The showers were hot and I liked that the cubicles have not only hooks and seat but shelving as well, there are Wall heaters on movement sensors to keep you warm.

The Welsh highland railway runs along the edge of the site, I know itís not running at this time of year but was still interesting non the less.

A good site that has a good range of walking routes.

We like it so much weíve rebooked, benefiting from the discounted rebooking offer.
