Spectacular scenery

The Orchard
Access to the site from the A496 coast road is straightforward, albeit up a steep driveway. However, before that the route takes you through Barmouth with its roads of varying widths, parked delivery vehicles, low stone walls & holidaymakers who aren't always aware of what's going on around them - not for the faint-hearted! Pitches are sloping & we needed blocks under our jockey wheel to level ourselves up, but once you're all sorted the views of Cardigan Bay to the front & the hills behind make it all worthwhile. And if you're lucky enough to get a good sunset (we had to wait until night 7 of 8) then caravanning doesn't get much better. We were lucky enough to be allocated pitch 5, which is set apart from the other four & has the most space and a view of the sea from your front window. Grace & John are very friendly hosts & the site is well maintained. Since the photos on CAMC website were taken they have extended the access road up between pitches 1-4 & 5. Just a couple of points to bear in mind - although each pitch has its own tap, there is no individual grey waste drain. Grey & chemical waste disposal are both located up a grassy slope at the back of the site, which can be a bit of an effort if you are wheeling a full container on wet grass. Buses run along the main road, although they don't run very frequently after early afternoon & the one morning that we waited for one to go into Barmouth it didn't turn up, so we walked. On another day we caught the train from Barmouth to Aberdovey, which is a lovely scenic route. We would recommend Norbar for food, just make sure you book in advance as even in the second week of September we struggled to get a table for dinner when booking a few days in advance.

Loved it

The Orchard
A nice warm welcome from John. Lovely CL with brilliant views over the bay. Nice long walk into Barmouth, which was very nice indeed. £6 back in a taxi if you don't fancy the walk back. Just couldn't fault the site. We will be back!

A site to recommend

The Orchard
July 2019 - 4 days Indeed no signs "The Orchard," and a bit confusing where to announce your arrival. The is also a Caravanning Club site on the same property and both sites share the same toilet accomodation. But a nice site it is. We were not lucky with our neighbours who were a bit noisy. Plenty to do in the area. Beach access is not easy. You have to cross a busy road and a mobile home estate.

Great Site

The Orchard
We have just spent 2 weeks here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Far enough away to get away from it all and close enough to get the best of the area. The site is about 2 miles from Barmouth which is walkable. The site is well laid out on a slope and all the pitches have a view of the sea. The pitches are levelled out on a hardstanding so no need to level the outfit. The grass is well maintained and cut regularly. The toilet block is new and is shared by the 2 sites, one being the Caravan & Camping Club and this one (Caravan Club), it didn't seem to be very busy with both sites being full. This one has water on every pitch, so no filling the hog daily. There is a bit of a slope to the entrance but nothing too challenging. There are a couple of niggles. The entrance could be more clearly indentified as it would be easy to overshoot it, just look out for the flag, Welsh of course. As somebody else mentioned the chemical toilet and grey water waste hoses should be longer to make flushing a little easier. The train station at LLanaber is about a 15 minute walk which is a request stop, quite novel. The train journey both ways have interesting scenery and worth the effort not sure that the end destinations are up to much. Make sure that you plan your train journey, especially southwards, as you need to change trains in the middle of nowhere and there can be a long wait if you choose the wrong train time. They only run every 2 hours. Also, there are 2 restaurants within walking distance that are very good. All in all this is a very good site and well worth a visit.

One of the best...

The Orchard
Lovely welcome by Grace and John. We love walking and there are some stunning walks around with a short drive. Check out your maps! Norbar is an excellent bar/restaurant and indeed “take away” within walking distance. Isis (yes I know !) Pizzaria by the Barmouth bridge is well worth a visit.(check their opening times) A Guinness at the Last Inn a must, Thank you...a relaxing break.
