 Trawsdir is lovely caravan/camping site, very clean and well maintained and good security so you feel safe also a family run business.

A great view of cardigan Bay, great for kids and dogs.

Pub next to the park, very reasonable price.

Barmouth Town 15 mins by car lovely town and the beach is blue flag beach. Great places to eat and drink and a fair in the town.

 First time camping with our little one (15 months) so chose the site based on the good reviews. We wanted somewhere with good facilities and that was family friendly and quiet at night. On those criteria the site is great. If you don't mind being given a big list of rules on arrival and having a electronic pass to get into the shower block etc then it's hard to fault this site. There is a main camping field with lots of pitches and a smaller area for tents closer to the touring caravans, we were on the smaller tent area so maybe it was louder on the other field.


Site is really well kept, clean, tidy, grass cut, lots of flowers, picket fences all around, children's playground and no litter.

Location is good, close to the beach, Barmouth and a really good pub adjacent to the site.

Facilities are kept spotless and there are plenty of them

Most of the tent pitches have electric if you need it.

Site was very quiet after 10pm.


Everything is quite tightly packed and you are pre allocated pitches, so if you prefer to pick your spot in a field then it may not be for you.

There is a big list of rules, which in fairness means the site owners are keen to run it well but is a bit off putting. The rule about being gone by 11am is certainly enforced, we were a bit late getting packed up and they did come to hurry us along.

I had read there was a family shower room, which was a reason for us choosing the site, however it is part of the 'back up toilet block' which only opens when the main block is closed for cleaning, which is basically when you are still asleep or in the middle of the day when you are out. Not a big issue for most but was a bit tricky for us.

Essentially this is great site for a certain type of camping and does have great facilities. We had a good stay but usually stay on sites with a bit more space, fewer caravans and fewer rules!

 Another fantastic stay. Great site. Was busy and plenty of children, but we were on the back field.

Stayed may 27th 5 nights. Weather great.

Site well run. Lynn n keith are great and really helpful.

Will be back again for our 6th time.

 Have stayed at this site several times including Xmas 2015 and 2016. Beautifully maintained with spotlessly clean modern facilities.

My only gripe is the grey waste disposal on the serviced pitches which are very high and can lead to very slow drainage of waste water, especially from the on board shower.

Other than that all good, and we were not disturbed by road noise despite being in the row nearest to the road.

 As a family we have been coming to this site for years and it is always brilliant.

The facilities are great, with a local pub a stone throw away.

Barmouth is a few minutes drive away or if you are into walking you can get there along the beach.

Definitely recommend this site and will always return.

Reviewer: Subry 7 reviews from this member

 Simply put, one of the best sites we have stayed on. Amazing sea views right from the caravan windows which is lovely to wake up to.

Toilets and showers were always spotless and the water was always hot, you need a fob to access the toilet facilities and also to enter and leave the site.

We drove to the sister site down the road and parked for free to access the beach, a 2 minute walk from the car (over the railway line) there is the most gorgeous golden sandy beach which is really quiet, as really only people from Trawsdir would use this access, so almost like a private beach.

The town of Barmouth is close by with all of the usual facilities you would expect. The only downside from our point of view was that we were pitched very close to the play area, and as our daughter is now too old, we didn't need this and it did tend to get a bit noisy occasionally.

Also the park was supposed to be closed at 9. 00 every night, but this close down seemed a bit haphazard depending on which wardens were on duty, one night it didn't close at all and children were still on the park at 10. 30. In future we would request a pitch further away from the park.

All in all a fabulous site, we will return.

Reviewer: Cheryl13 1 review from this member

 As other reviews have said, immaculate facilities & helpful staff. Plots are a good size & clearly laid out. Most seem to have electric hook up.

We just wanted a standard camping plot for a tent, without electricity and these unfortunately seem to run along the boundary wall, right next to the main A496 road running between Barmouth & Harlech. The sound of cars roaring past just the other side of the wall made it hard to get to sleep & we were woken around 6am by the traffic.

Having re-read the reviews now I'm back, I notice someone has mentioned this, but it didn't bother them. I must've missed that somehow. For us, it was really disappointing & for that reason alone, we wouldn't return to this site.

Also, I wouldn't fancy walking along that road to go to the beach, especially with children, as the cars go so fast. We drove to the sister site & parked there.

If that sort of thing doesn't bother you, then the rest of the site is very well run. We all had showers, some in the morning & some in the evening - the facilities were always clean, the water always hot. The washing up area was the same. We didn't use the launderette, but it looked well equipped & clean & tidy.

We visited Norbar which is about 3 minutes walk from the site - along paths, not on the road, it has a great menu, very varied & caters well for vegetarians & gluten free. They also run a pizza kitchen there too with lovely looking artisan type pizzas.

So whilst I am reluctant to be negative, I just wanted to alert non-EHU tent campers like us, about the proximity to the busy road.

 Just returned from another great stay at Trawsdir. As always the facilities were immaculate, the staff are friendly and efficient and we really enjoyed our sea view.

There have been a few changes since our last visit in August 2016 so I thought it was worth a new review.

The dog and ball games field has now been split. This is brilliant for us as my son is sporty but afraid of dogs. He can now play cricket or footie without the dogs being around.

Also installed is a new lit and paved walkway across the ball games and dog walk area to the new bar next door called NorBar.

We went to NorBar on Tuesday to celebrate my birthday. At the moment they are running a limited menu as it is newly opened (they only started serving food last Friday) but everyone was happy with the menu and when the food came, it was excellent. They also serve a very well thought out range of wines and beers and have a large terrace for viewing the sunset or just looking out to sea and enjoying a drink. Dogs are welcome on the terrace overlooking the bay.

I have a food allergy (milk) and they coped very well with this. Would happily eat there again.

We didn't try the attached Fish and Chip shop but was told it opens Thursday, Friday & Saturday and it also has a terrace to enjoy the view from.

Spring has definitely sprung at Trawsdir, lots of spring lambs, blossom and birds singing. Wish I was still there and we only paid 13 a night with EHU. What's not to like?

Reviewer: Berte74 1 review from this member

 Fantastic site well kept and shower block and toilets were clean through out the stay. Set just far enough of the road not to hear any traffic great location Booked for the August Bank holiday they squeezed us in Saturday to Monday afternoon can't rate highly enough. If you are gluten free then get to the little chip shop in Harlech just around the corner from the castle the gf fish chips and sausage are out of this world. Half hours notice and it's all cooked separate. If its cake your after the coffee shops in Barmouth just opposite the spar are well worth the vist will be visiting again next year. Brilliant. Thank you all.
