Why stay here ...

Our site offers a choice of any five hook-up pitches from the following:

  • Four grass pitches on a slight slope (one of these is too wet to use at times) – chiefly for caravans.
  • Four hard-standing pitches on level ground  – chiefly for motorhomes.

An adjacent car park has two hook-up outlets for late arrivals to stay overnight.

Facilities include a fresh water point, disposable  for grey water, chemical waste, general rubbish, food and recyclable waste.

There is a toilet with a hand-wash basin but no shower.

Wifi available on request and located near Barn area on site.

An adjacent field offers dogs a run-about and there are also walks in the 12 acre grounds.

There is a 1 acre lake with wild fowl and a bird-hide and both lake-side and woodland walks. Deep and unfenced water in this lake and other smaller ponds poses danger to small children.

A ten minute walk through woodland leads into the centre of the village of Bethesda.

Train enthusiasts will find that we are central to several narrow-gauge railways and on our site, there is a ride-on 5” gauge railway with 600 yards of track, a tunnel, bridges, signal boxes and a turn table.  Train rides are sometimes available.

We are centrally placed for three historic castles and two National Trust grand houses.

We are close to the mountains of Snowdonia with easy access for mountain walks, mountain bike-rides and rock climbing.

The Snowdonia Zip Wire – the longest in Europe is within a mile and the North Wales Cycle path passes close by.

The beaches and costal walks of Anglesey are accessible.

The Joys of Life Country Park also offers self-catering and bed and breakfast accommodation that caravaners often find attractive for friends or family who are not caravan-orientated.

Sat-navs will take you astray.  Don’t leave the B4409 except through our big red gates!

Stunning

What a lovely picturesque site. Perfect for walking and very dog friendly. I can’t find a negative thing to say about it. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay despite the typical Welsh weather.

stunning grounds

This is a beautiful site with a stunning garden and walk into Bethesda. The welcome was warm, friendly and very professional. It was a very tranquil. The one toilet available was 'rustic' which may be off-putting to some, as was the lack of a shower room, which almost prevented us from staying, however we are glad we did as these were not major issues. We would definitely recommend this CL site and will hopefully return

Lovely tranquil site

What a lovely CL. Gorgeous surroundings and in easy reach of everything. I think I would definitely have more hard standings as the grass slopes became very boggy. No midges during our stay. Recommend the Velocity 2 Zip Wire for the more adventurous person, however perfectly sited for walking. Love stay. Thank you.

ENCHANTED SITE

What a delightful, tranquil and peaceful site. It was like a fairy land for adults. Lots of little gardens to explore. The lovely lake to walk around with damsel flies as big as birds. I was in seventh heaven. My favourite site on my North Wales Trip. Would definitely stay there again.

Mature Couple

Excellent site; bit puzzled about where to site the van when we arrived, but set up on pitch 7 - hardstanding and peaceful; owner later confirmed OK. Midges were bad, but we just closed all the fly screens - worth it for the ambience of the site
