A site to recommend

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

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...

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.

A lovely CL.

No-one could complain about this CL, Mr Williams clearly works hard to keep it nice, but, I would like to make a constructive criticism. The hosepipe at the chemical disposal point is not long enough to allow users to swill down around the top of pot. Everyone who uses these facilities is aware that in the interest of hygiene it is necessary to ensure that all the area is swilled down after emptying the cassette, but here with such a short hose this is just not possible. this apart I would not hesitate to visit The Orchard again.

Lovely views

A very pretty site with a frontal sea view and lovely hills behind. The owner was very friendly and always available for a chat and advice. A very clean toilet block which also included a shower costing 20p for 5 minutes which was excellent. All the shops you need are a 5 minute drive in Barmouth and there is a recently opened restaurant just 10 minutes’ walk. All in all a very pleasant experience and will certainly be returning.
