Why stay here ...

Welcome to our CL site, we have a breathtaking view over Red Wharf Bay and during the summer months a spectacular sunrise over the Bay hence the name "Gwel y Wawr". As the pictures show the field is on a slight slope but this only enhances the view of the Bay.

There is a bus stop outside the gate, and a pub about 100 yards away which does value for money food and a daily carvery. Walkers can join the coastal path or enjoy walks along the beach or in the nearby forest.

All five pitches are hard standing and have a view of the Bay with easy drive on access (no reversing!) and tracks to drive out so there's no problem with getting stuck in bad weather. Dogs are welcome (on leads please). Thank you for looking at our site.

We are an adults only site.

No car charging please.

Beautiful view

Gwel y Wawr
As all other reviews say - wonderful views. Hosts very friendly and helpful. Easy access to pitches. Bus outside and easy to drive to local areas. Slight negative was that the pitches are quite close together so if you wanted to sit outside it wasn’t very private.

View second to none!

Gwel y Wawr
We were made very welcome by the owner of the site and had the site to ourselves! The views from all the pitches was amazing. We probably would have chosen the one in the middle but the owner wanted us on pitch 5 which was up by the hedge. It was sloping but we managed with our blocks on the top level. It was easy to get on and off the site. We ate at the Boathouse Bistro next to the Ship Inn. They do a lovely evening menu and a wide selection of coffee and cakes. Visited it twice. Great base for the island and we enjoyed a day out to Newborough Sands. Beach and woods beautiful with walking and cycling trails. Definitely recommend. The only tiny thing that would have improved our stay would be to have hot water into the toilet sink. There is only 1 ladies and 1 gents which is fine but a mini water heater for hand washing would have been preferable especially for the price. That said we would definitely recommend this CL!

Simply Brilliant ...... Thank You

Gwel y Wawr
We have just returned from a wonderful 10 night stay at Gwel y Wawr, and frankly we can't wait for the next opportunity to visit again!!! Stephen and Einir, (the owners), gave us an extremely warm welcome, (as did Diesel the Terrier)!! and we have to say that both were so extremely helpful!! It was great to enjoy regular chats with Stephen and Einir during our stay, and both are very knowledgeable pertaining to all places of interest across the island of Anglesey. This site offers tremendous views over Red Wharf Bay, and access on foot to the bay for dog walking etc couldn't be easier via a lane which runs alongside the site. There is an abundance of wild fowl inhabiting Red Wharf Bay, and amongst the November offerings were Red Shanks, Shellducks, Brent Geese, Egrets, Choughs as well as many Curlews. The sun set over Gwel y Wawr is truly stunning, and provided a beautiful vista from the front window of our van! We would like to take this opportunity to say another huge and genuine "thank you" to Stephen and Einir for a wonderful break, on their lovely C.L ahead of what is going to be a very hectic Christmas!!.

Amazing views

Gwel y Wawr
Wow, what a view, that's worth the site fee on its own. Level pitch, on/off drive, no reversing, it can't be easier than that. Basic facilities but we knew that when we booked it. The Bulls Inn, just along the road, was really good, all in all - I can't fault it.

Quiet Site

Gwel y Wawr
We stayed here for 3 nights. We arrived mid-afternoon on the Thursday and was allocated pitch no 3. We were hoping to erect our awning, but not only did the hardstanding not allow for this (the edges sloped down quite significantly), the size of our drive-away awning would have encroached on to the grass - and unfortunately awnings are not allowed on the grass. Not deterred we erected our windbreaks and was able to sit out a couple of times in the evening when the weather allowed. There are toilets on site - which were clean and a Godsend for us when our water pump decided to give up the ghost on our last morning. The owners were extremely friendly and talkative. The site is situated just off the main road - there is slight road noise during the day - but very peaceful at night. The view over Red Wharf Bay is just lovely. As usual we used our e-bikes to get around. We cycled to the Menai Bridge and the National Trust property Plas Newydd on the Friday and on the Saturday we cycled locally - taking in lots of local bays - all downhill - which meant lots of uphill cycling when leaving them. The cycling was lovely once off the main road - but boy - we were both glad to have the pedal assist on our bikes - especially when cycling round some of the rural roads in between Dulas and Penysam. We binned cycling on to Amlwych as the weather was closing in and the sun looked to be shining more inland - which indeed it was - and the hills were more gentle!!! Just be warned - the ehu only runs on 10 amps.
