 Friendly host and beautiful location as others have mentioned in previous reviews.

However I was surprised to find that the washing up area only had cold water and the ladies toilet had no hot water taps in the 2 basins but an electric heater providing hot water into a Belfast sink?. ? The facilities were pretty basic for the £30 fee.

I donít like giving what sounds like a bad review but felt future campers should know what to expectÖso long as you know these things and are happy with them then itís a site I could recommend but it wasnít for us.

 Me and 4 friends stayed here for a couple nights before and after Hiking,

The facilities where clean and plenty of space for tents to be spread out.

The owner is the highlight of this site!

He was the friendly nicest person Iíve met at a campsite came and chatted to use on arrival and every evening and morning checking we were all okay!

10/10 will be back in the future 110%

 Just returned from this site. Hope I have enough room to write everything.

The booking was made over the phone and the lady was very helpful with information to my questions. Directions was also spot on.

On arrival we were met by the owner called Hew. What an amazing guy he is. Can never do enough for you. Any help you need he will always do his best. He showed us a couple of pitches to choose from. He was always on hand every day if help of information was needed. The on-site toilets and shower was always kept clean by Hew. Showers was 40p for 6mins.

There was sheep, cows and a donkey called Alf. The children loved to feed him every day. Bread was his favourite food. Very friendly and loved a good rub.

If you love low flying aircrafts then this is the site to view them without climbing anywhere.

Camp fires was aloud on-site but please try and lift off the ground. Hew does have logs if needed for a cheap price.

There is two tractors on-site which my son wanted to see most days.

A stream also runs through the site which is very peaceful.

Barmouth is about 30mins away. Petrol garage about 10mins away. Sells nice ice cream.

This site has got to be one of the best places ever visited. Lovely views and walks. Thank you Hew and his wife for a lovely stay. Will remember this forever.

Hope to see you again soon. From the family with two children and used to work at the airport and now self employed. 👍🏽💙

 Great site in a great location

Basic facilities but every thing a camper needs

The owner Huw is very knowledgeable and helpful

The campsite to statics is closed at end of October


The campsite is open all year to tourers of all types (says Huw) despite what you may read

I went underground with Corris Mine Explorers - great trip

There is also a craft centre and Railway at Corris for the less active

 Excellent location under Cadair Idris and close to pretty Tal-y-Llyn. Very helpful owner.

It attracts a good crowd of fellow campers who won't be partying into the wee hours as they're here to appreciate the scenery and walks.

The campsite is slightly basic. But toilets and shower suffice.

The nearest grocery is a fair distance at Dolgellau.

Reviewer: Asnali 1 review from this member

 A fantastic stay over the last 2 weeks in August with the OH and 2 dogs. Met some great people, and fell in love with the area.

Hill walking, steam trains, CAT, castles. More hill walking, low level walking, toll bridges, medieval packhorse paths and lots of ice cream.

The 1st q we were asked by other campers was "here for the mountains or the planes?". Didn't know what they meant until the 1st jets flew over as Alfie provided his humorous daily alarm clock with an EEEEEaWWwww around 8.

The site became busy over the BH weekend, we were glad not to be near the people who brought a generator playing music into the early morning. But the site owner tries to put known noisy groups away from everyone else. Toilet block was constantly cleaned and restocked. As others say its 20p for 3 mins in the shower- nice and hot, and restricted time to number of 20p coins people have makes sure there isn't a long queue.

Huw was a fantastic host, never in your face, but stopping for a few words here and there and suggesting walks and local places of interest. He often had kids running up to him to update on their day, and came across as one of those people who is interested in everyone. We were reassured by his diligence ensuring any guest who went up a mountain returned when expected.

Shopping locally? Try the EuroSpar in Dolgellau for food and drink. There's also a great wee outdoor shop in Dolgellau town centre if you have forgotten anything esential. Butcher nearest the bridge in Balla is also worth the trip.

Definitely going back next year!

Reviewer: Runkidscow 1 review from this member

 We went with family. 13 members in total and two dogs. Family stayed in caravans/trailer tent. Site is lovely. Very spacious.

Facilities are basic but clean and the owner Hugh is always attending to them.

Hugh is the loveliest farmer we all have ever met. Very friendly and helpful and always around for chat. Views are amazing and right in the loop.

We were very lucky to see some aircrafts go through. Location is in the middle of two villages so a short drive to shops.

There is a few midges around at night but a camp fire in one of Hugh's pits sorted that.

Alfie the donkey is very popular with the kids.

Will definitely be going back next year.

Reviewer: Mattastik 5 reviews from this member

 A really nice, fairly basic site in absolutely stunning surroundings.

The site is made up of a couple of camping fields and a tree lined area for caravans and motorhomes with electric hook up. The toilet block is pretty basic with a couple of toilets and one shower in each of the men and women's block. The showers are 20p for about 3 minutes so take 2 with you.

There are a few walks from the site along the valley and further up in to the mountains including Cadair Idris. There is a nature reserve within walking distance that has a nice little cafe serving lunches and snacks. Also from there you can walk up the waterfalls and on in to the hills if you're feeling energetic.

A great site to escape it all including no phone signal however you can stroll up to the road and pick up 4G if you really need to. Also being on the Mach Loop you will see all kinds of planes flying low down the valley which is very impressive.

All in all a basic but nice and tidy site in an amazing location. We would go back!

 At the foot of Cader Idris. We used this as an overnight base to walk the beautiful surroundings.

The farmer was great, accommodating & friendly. We stayed on the caravan section, shower block clean & tidy think was 20p for showers.

Babbling stream on one side be aware you will need the toilet in the night after a certain age.

Reviewer: Alfthedog 2 reviews from this member

 Very scenic sight in a lovely valley. The owner is very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Always around and sometimes stops for a chat.

Facilities are basic but are constantly being cleaned and restocked.

Several pubs/restaurants within a few minutes drive. Plenty of walking opportunities and also get treated to the odd low flying military aircraft( not on weekends or nighttime).

The site is dog friendly also.
