Why stay here ...
An acre of almost flat field, with generous pitches and views down towards Abersoch and over Cardigan Bay. There are seven beaches within four miles and the National Coastal Path passes within a mile and a half. Nant is located close enough to Abersoch for sailing and dining, but is ideal also as a base for exploring the whole of the Llyn Peninsula.
Abersoch is a twenty minute downhill walk but there is a bus and plenty of taxis if you're not inclined to drive. Mynytho is criss-crossed with public footpaths that will take you to hilltop vantage points or down to the sea.
Pwllheli and Aberdaron are connected by bus from nearby (100m), for a bit of an outing, especially if you've come by motorhome, and the train along the Cambrian Coast includes stretches of dramatic coastal scenery.
Cycling is a bit up and down but there's plenty to explore when you get off the beaten track, particularly the pilgrimage churches and the fishermen's coves of the north coast.
We have wi-fi and are currently upgrading the installation to cover the whole site.
We have long time regular visitors as well as those who come only once or twice in passing. We're regular caravanners ourselves, and you're all very welcome.

It was our first stay on this site and we can see why regulars return here - it's a hidden gem. Total peace and tranquillity, with breath-taking views of Port Neigwl (aka Hell's Mouth), Abersoch and the surrounding hills. Shower and laundry facilities are now open, but there's no loo, which wasn't an issue for us. There's a farm shop about 100 metres away selling fruit and veg, eggs, very reasonable prices, all done with an honesty box, which we loved - but you will need exact change. Another few hundred metres takes you to Mynytho where there's a post office and shop. There's another local shop in Llangian, well worth a stroll down to, as it has an ancient church with a 5th century grave stone. There's another ancient church worth seeing in Llanengan - key given at the Sun Inn, a friendly pub. Both churches were stopovers for pilgrims on their way to Bardsey Island. We loved the surfing at Porth Neigwl and parked the motorhome in the free carpark no problems - but best to get there before 11 am just in case - but if full it's possible to park all along the lane with no issues. Mair was really helpful with local info and printed out a bus timetable for us. We took the no 17 bus to Aberdaron and walked the coastal path back - about 12 miles. Amazing scenery and hut circles to see on the hilltop. You can get the no 17 bus back at West end of Port Neigwl, thus avoiding the long hill back to the campsite, saving 2 miles. All in all a fantastic area, and the site is a perfect location for all the beaches and places of interest. We would recommend electric bikes or racing bikes, as it's a steep hill on the way back from the coast. We struggled on our heavy old mountain bikes. We are buying some electric adaptors! Will certainly stay there again.
