Stayed here for 4 nights over Christmas. Really nice site. Wished we stayed longer. Toilets showers were spotless. Nice walks and the little honesty shop was lovely. Will return soon. Site owners were very friendly.

Great site, small with wonderful views and very clean facilities. You are able to buy fresh croissants and bread on site - great touch. There's also a camp fire (which I so wanted to use but sadly we didn't have time) and good access to Snowdonia.

Easy to book (stayed just one night on Christmas day). Hope to return for a longer stay next time.

We walked into Barmouth and back a total of 7 miles but aside from the steep hill down through the campsite and the return climb the route is completely flat following a converted railway track and the fantastic mile long wooden bridge into Barmouth.

On our return we discovered the salt and pepper had been left at home but the honesty shop on site stocked them and also logs and kindling which we also bought.

We lit a fire in the communal fire pit for the hookup camping area but no one joined us as it was a tad cold and windy.

What a great day for our first ever weekend caravaning and what a great site in a great location.

What a gem of a place. Lovely site, great views and really nice owners. The facilities are a little rustic, but spotlessly clean. However I suspect it might be a challenge getting a shower in peak season.

I had a panoramic pitch, which was fabulous with views across the hills and Estuary, and the walk down the steep path was amazing.

The honesty shop where you can pick up essential items or snacks is a nice touch too.

Sadly the weather was a tad soggy for my first visit, which restricted activities a little, but I will definitely be back.

A lovely quiet site with fantastic views and plenty of walks in and around the site. The owners are very helpful and friendly and have plenty of information about the surrounding area. WiFi is available around the shower facilities only unfortunately and not on the pitch but we had good phone reception so could use data to catch up with emails etc.

Had a wonderful 4-night stay with our two labs at Graig Wen. Can't thank Sarah & John enough for accommodating us at short notice. Location absolutely stunning with a path leading down through the woods directly onto the Mawddach Trail. We went out of season so no hustle for the shower facilities, but might get a little busy during high season.

Will most definitely be returning and recommending site to friends and family.

This is a lovely place if you like peace and quiet beautiful scenery and wildlife this is definitely for you. There is a road nearby but not all that busy. The facilities are kept spotless. Although the track to the estuary is steep my son was able to use it on his mobility scooter even though we had just had heavy rain. The evening before we left we were treated to a battle of wits between the owners cat and a fox! To our surprise the cat won and chased the fox away. Who needs tv when you see this from your window.

We stayed here for 2 nights whilst we hiked the area. Very friendly and welcoming on arrival. Showers were wonderful and clean. Loved the honesty shop and being able to refresh our ice packs was a bonus. We will definitely stay again. Thank you.

Reviewer: Heavymetalpirate 8 reviews from this member

We chose pitch 9, because we wanted a quiet pitch for our 2 dogs, and it was just as we hoped. Long and pitch pitch, but enough room for our modest trailer tent. We arrived after a period of extensive rain, as such the ground was very wet and muddy, but a duck board was provided, which we put to good use and certainly helped keep the interior of the tent clean.

Graig Wen is a fabulous site that makes use of the resources already there, the toilets are in an old utility building, but kept warm and clean. Showers were the same, copious amounts of hot water, in a spacious cubicle with no push button for the water (yay!). We loved the honesty shop and hope that people remain honest so that this unique feature stays.

There are 2 areas to wash pots, one under cover the other in the open, but both had plenty of hot water.

We liked that the rubbish is recycled, easy to do, with clear signage.

We wandered down the steep slope to explore the site and surrounding area. Wow! We loved the quirky nature of the 'campers' showers, loo and washing up facilities. The pitches on the lower part of the campsite are very well spaced, some with extraordinary views, and all have their own fire pit.

We walked along the trail at the bottom of the site for some miles, a fantastic path, with some lovely sights. We particularly enjoyed watching the tide slowly engulf the salt marshes.

Graig Wen is an ideal spot to explore Snowdonia and beyond. We stumbled across Coed y Brenin and Tan Y Coed, which have really well signposted walks for all abilities, with some of the best flora and fauna we have seen. Beautiful places. We also timed a visit to Tywyn beach to perfection, arriving on the beach as the tide was going on, we walked almost to Aberdovey, before we returned. We feel there is so much more to explore so will be returning, and we will be staying here again.
