 This idyllic site is just wonderful. Close to stunning countryside with views to match.

We came for 2 nights and stayed for 7!

Isabel the owner is super friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

We bought our 3 spaniels with us and there are plenty of good walks both locally and within a short drive.

The Red Lion pub in dinas Mawddwy is a proper old fashioned village pub with good food and great beers.

A very well maintained and clean site. We will be coming back.

 I really liked this site as it wasn't too busy. There were ample facilities and I didn't have to queue for anything.

The owner was helpful and quick to respond and we were left to our own devices to enjoy our time.

Good location with pubs nearby. I recommend Tafarn Y Brigands for a meal. Food was fantastic.

 A basic site but what a location! Nice welcome and the owner was very helpful and friendly.

No TV or mobile signal but really picturesque location near the village of Dinas Mawddwy and almost equidistant to Dolgellau and Machynlleth.

Used the site as a base to explore the area travelling to Barmouth & Harlech area one day, Dolgellau, Yr Ysgwrn, Bala and Lake Vyrnwy travelling over the latter two over mainly single track but through very scenic countryside another then Machynlleth (Market Day on a Wednesday) Aberdyfi, Corris and Aberangell on the final day.

Weather was excellent and we were able to enjoy walks from the campsite mainly ending up at the Llew Coch enjoying the great food and beers there.

Occasionally RAF jets hurtled overhead on the “Mach Loop” and at a low level.

Looking forward to a return visit.

 Fantastic friendly campsite, riverside location set in beautiful scenery, ideal for walking birdwatching, jet watching as its smack in the middle of the 'mach loop' which is the low fly zone. Also there are mines in the area to explore which I love to do, we were also glad to return for the Red Bull mountain bike world championship which the owners Roland and Isabel had told us about fantastic event.

Showers and toilets nice and clean and nothing is too much trouble for the owners who are very friendly and knowledgeable.

The Red Lion pub is about 5 to 10 mins walk away either by strolling down the river or walking up the road again run by very friendly people and lovely food served.

Its an ideal base to explore as your about 10 to 15 mins from Fairbourne or Barmouth for the coast whilst been sat in the middle of beautiful mountain scenery with endless walks on your doorstep. We shall hopefully be visiting again as the word rally championship stage is virtually at the end of the road. There are plenty of shops in either direction in Dolgellau or Machynlleth.

Really Beautiful site in an amazing location a real hidden gem.

Thx Roland and Isabel for an amazing stay.

 This is a small site with well kept grounds set in a stunning location. The lady who owns the site is very friendly and only charged us £13. 50 per night (2 with motorhome & ehu) the site is mainly static vans with a few spaces for tourers and a camping lawn adjacent to the owners house. The site is located directly under the flight path of the Mach Loop LF7 so was very interesting watching the low flying fighter jets screaming just over the top of the trees !

The downside is the poor state of the toilet & shower facilities which are rather prehistoric and not very clean ! Also there is a road that runs through the site leading to a farm and the vehicles using it drove through the site far to fast especially as there were children playing / cycling.

The main A470 road runs adjacent to the site so there is some road noise and the local village of Dinas is about a 20 minute walk but only has a pub and cafe, no shop or anything else so make sure to bring everything you need !

 Stayed here for the Redbull Hardline MTB Race Sept 15

We were pleasantly surprised at the scenery & friendliness of the staff. But the shower/toilet block has prompted me to leave a poor review

As previous this site is for statics, but if you're touring or camping I would avoid, especially if you have a fear of spiders.

The 1st ladies shower & tried didn't work and as we were told you only get 4 mins for 20p I got undressed first then put my 20p in to find that all the lights were on but nothing worked, so had to nip back out to find someone to try & get it working.

I was then directed to the second ladies shower, look one way & it looks ok, relatively new UPVC surrounding the usual electric shower, turn round to find the oldest spiders webs I have ever seen. Very close to the electric 20p box. Shocking. And the toilets were not much better. The right hand ladies loo had a cracked seat that pinched my bum when I sat down and there were spiders everywhere!

From what my husband said the men's were not much better.

The outside pot area was usual but could have done with a cover to keep you out of the rain when you wash the pots.

Excellent area, scenery & a lovely river flowing adjacent to the site, great for dog walking etc.

I'm not posh, just would like a clean, sanitary toilet/shower block!

Reviewer: Andyholey 1 review from this member

 We visited this site in Wales as the first one trying put our new tent. The site it self was very very clean. Lots of static caravans and a couple of tourers. We were the only tent to pitch of a couple of days. We had a dog with us and the first field we were directed to had chickens all over tithe dog loved it but we couldn't have her prancing around trying to have a game of 'catch me if you can' with them. We then moved (before we pitched) to another field away from them and this was great. The field was flat and level with and electric hook up close by. Toilet blocks clean and tidy. We didn't use the shower block but it seemed ok when we looked in. Nearest shop about 3 minutes away in car and nearest pub 'the red lion' who do take away food was a 6minute walk away. The camp site was heaven for me as a plane spotter as it's on the flight path of the 'Mach loop'. Low flying jets. No set times. Some days you may get one or two. Other days nothing. Great walks near by with a lovely beach, Barmouth, about 15 miles away. Will be going again.

Reviewer: Alan141 2 reviews from this member

 The main site is for predominately seasonal mobile homes with some tourers and tents making up the rest. Pretty quiet mid-week and the owner was very helpful and flexible. Very easy to get to great walks in the mountains and within 10 miles or so of decent size towns.

The site is close to a main road but the traffic was only noticeable in the morning 'rush hour'. Views were great across the mountains. The seasonal mobile homes area was very well kept but the rest of the site needs a good tidy up. The showers and toilets need some maintenance and deep cleaning. 20p per minute for a shower was a bit much.

Overall a good site with good owners but in need of some TLC!

 A nice basic site with a small field for camping in a nice quiet area of wales, with lovely scenery.

The facilities are very basic with 1 shower for men and 1 for women, showers takes 20p and water pressure wasn't great, a mirror was smashed on the floor in both the mens and womens shower and and wasn't cleared up for the duration of our 2 day stay, the shower contained a dirty duckboard which has to be lifted if you want to get out and hope it hasnt fell down if you want to get in, toilets in the mens were dark and dull but sufficed, my g/f had no complaints about the womens.

There were only 3 tents in the field so we had plenty of space, we were awoken early each morning by a donkey and cockerel.

We arrived late afternoon and had trouble finding a shop open nearby, in the evenings we walked to the nearby village and had nice food in the pub.

On the whole if you can put up with the facilities which although dim do the job required and don't mind being woken at silly o clock by farm animals it is a nice scenic campsite ideal for exploring mid Wales

Reviewer: Peter.a2 6 reviews from this member

 A lovely site in beautiful surroundings. Any reasonable size motorhome will need a hard standing as the grass is very soft underfoot.There are not many hard standings. Some static and seasonal vans.

Charges very reasonable (£15.50) motor van, two adults and electric. Did not use facilities so can't comment on them. Very peaceful site with the exception of the cars/farm vehicles from a farm further up the valley and which use the narrow road running through the site, not particularly frequently but when they do they seem to drive extremely quickly.

Children and pets will have to be closely supervised with the infrequency of the traffic making it even more dangerous. All in all a great site and we will return again.
