Reviewer: Poppym 1 review from this member

 Loved the area and views. Unfortunately had to be towed out of 3 different pitches as field too soft for a motorhome.

There were cars driven on homing people in tents with no problems. Other campsite residents told us that same had happened the previous day. We really don't think they should've taken bookings for motorhomes on that field.

All hardstanding pitches were already booked up. We did have a great time there however we missed our train time booking due to waiting to be towed out.

Not the best shower & toilet block either I'm afraid and had a Cold shower !

Would come back for views and area but only to hardstanding pitch.

Being towed out 3 times due to being given soft area pitches did spoil the experience.

Also signage for reception should be better too.

 Loved it here.

Much prefer campsites where you’re not bothered by rules and regulations.

Lovely situation and a great base for exploring.

Walks from the site.

A lot of tractor noise but not before 8am

Basic facilities but that’s all you need.

 Lovely site with stunning views. Clean modern facilities.

Good walks for dog owners. Site was quiet when we arrived but was told it gets busy at weekends not had that experience yet.

We had a hard standing which is grass with plastic mesh perfect for erecting awning yet keeping mud free when wet. Better than gravel which my dogs aren’t keen on.

Would recommend this site and would return.

 The owners of the Campsite are friendly and helpful,

The field is mown and only slightly sloping and the electric hook-up was fine.

The toilets, showers and washing-up facilities were all clean and in good working order.

The campsite is adjacent to the ruins of Cymer Abbey and is also close to the Cycle Path to Barmouth.

 We spent our very first night here in our new to us motorhome.

It was a really nice, tidy, clean campsite with all the facilities (toilets, showers, washing up area) we needed to get used to our motorhome.

We have been back since and will return again (and again) when we get the chance.

Owners are very friendly and quick to respond. Dogs are welcome. A bonus.

There are some lovely walks and a two mile jaunt into the town.

The nightly fee was very reasonable, including electric. There are some lovely walks in the hills if you are staying for a few or more days.

Coed Y Brenin is not far and it's easy for parking.

 We visit this place every year and, as always, clean showers and toilets.

Close to the sea, mountains, forests.

We were with the children and the dog.

I recommend it the most.


Co roku odwiedzamy to miejsce I jak zawsze prysznice, toalety czyste. Blisko nad morze, góry, lasy. Bylismy z dziećmi I psem. Polecam jak najbardziej.

 Very good campsite, good facilities,

Good access to the Mawddach River either straight off the site field or by walking down the road to the old bridge which is a popular spot on a hot day.

Another bonus are the ruins of Cymer Abbey on site.

Only negatives were the hard ground for the tent pegs & the dreaded midges.

Wouldn’t put us off returning though :)

Reviewer: Lindilou2013 45 reviews from this member

 The setting for this site is glorious. Hidden in a valley, with the Mawddach running through it, mountains to the sides, a beautiful ruined abbey within the grounds.

It is a working farm so it can get quite noisy when work has to be done otherwise, apart from when it is busy, it is a relaxing and peaceful place.

There is no wifi although we were able to access a 4G signal without trouble.

The facilities block is not cleaned every day so can get quite mucky because some people are just inconsiderate to the needs of others but that's a problem encountered everywhere.

Couple of miles to Dolgellau where shops can be accessed.

So much walking and cycling can be done from this site and in that respect it is ideal. Coed Y Brenin is just up the road and we cycled there and back several times. There are also road rides available but make sure you're fit or have ebikes as most roads lead upwards! We didn't need to go very far to find incredible walks.

If the beach is more your scene then Fairbourne or Barmouth are about ten minutes drive away.

We shall return because it meets our needs for cycling and walking.

 Excellent site with spacious, modern and very clean toilet block.

If you are energetic enough, it is possible to cycle along the Mawddach Trail and across the bridge into Barmouth.

I intend to use this site again.

 Excellent site, beautiful countryside and immaculate toilets!

4 glorious days and rained the last but didn’t spoil our holiday! Thanks to the owners!

No internet or tv signal but it was good to do without for a few days!
