Fantastic CL

Cefn Eithin
We were so impressed with this CL, not the largest we’ve been on but really well laid out with privacy hedging between pitches. Narrow entry but no problem arriving or departing with our twin axle van. The owners are really lovely. We saw Helen and their gorgeous dog George most days. He is so well behaved and was the absolute highlight for our 11week old puppy. She adored him and he was really gentle with her. Views from the site are stunning. Easy access to lots of places. Highly recommend this location. If back in the area we wouldn’t hesitate to return. They also have cottage rentals if you want to co-ordinate with other friends/family who don’t have a caravan.

A fabulous CL

Cefn Eithin
We have just returned from a highly enjoyable 9-night stay at Cefn Eithin Certified Location. It has now become our favourite CL in Wales and we are hoping to return again next year. The site is in a stunning location with views of the mountains on one side and the sea on the other (when it isn’t raining!). The single track road up to it, was only a short distance and we managed to turn into the site and off again at the end of the stay easily with a bit of care. We used the tyre marks in the gravel to guide us. The family who run the site are lovely and very helpful and keep the site in lovely condition. Their friendly dog, George, saw us on to our pitch each time we returned and would walk us off the site too. Although it rained a lot, the site drained extremely well so there was never any problem. The site itself is a lovely garden, with shrubs and bushes around the large pitches full of wildlife. These bushes are filled with birds which kept us entertained whilst we were at the caravan. The buddleia bushes attracted lots of butterflies and bees and, at night, moths, which then attracted bats which we could see right outside our caravan window as they fed at dusk. The site is very close to a cycle/walking path which we frequently used to get into Caernarfon (about 4 miles away) and there is also a bus stop at the opposite end of the lane which we also used. We drove to Pwllheli which is a great area for swimming with free parking just off the promenade. The Sea Zoo on Anglesey didn’t get great reviews on Tripadvisor, but we enjoyed our visit and stayed nearly 2 hours. Highlights were the sea horses and jelly fish. The reviews were right about the café. We also took a trip out on the boat from Caernarfon Castle and the Captain told us all about the boat’s history as it had originally been brought over from America, having been used in New York, to help with the war effort. We cycled down to Caernarfon Airport and visited the Mountain Rescue Museum there which has lots of aircraft that entertained us one wet afternoon. We didn’t eat at the café but the food did look nice. A local gentleman we met at the bus stop recommended taking the S1 bus to Betws-y-Coed, via Llanberis and we are glad we took him up on his advice as the drive was stunning and we were able to see the salmon trying to jump the falls whilst enjoying an ice-cream.

Absolutely stunning.

Cefn Eithin
We stayed here for a week late may bank holiday. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and came away feeling totally relaxed. We had a very pleasant reception from the owner who was very helpful with information of the local area etc… the site is very well maintained with spectacular views. One thing I must add is I've noticed on previous reviews they say about entrance to the lane and the site being tight, we’ve got a long outfit caravan is 8m plus a long estate car and had no issues at all getting in or out. There are stone walls so you do have to be mindful of these. Overall a wonderful holiday in a beautiful part of the world. Will Definitely be returning.

EASTER 2023

Cefn Eithin
A great CL with excellent amenities and a warm welcome, handy for many of the sights and sounds (particularly the narrow gauge trains) of North Wales with superb views towards the sea. Be aware that a wide turn is required from the main road into the narrow lane leading to the site and that the entrance to the site requires some extra care if you have a long caravan. One very minor point to note, is that when all the pitches are occupied we found that the electric kettle was tripping the pitch circuit breaker, not too bad if you know beforehand. Overall I have no hesitation in recommending this superb site to other members.

Perfect location for exploring North Wales

Cefn Eithin
As has been mentioned before, the entrance is tight and not easy to access but our outfit is large so taking it slowly we had no problem. I would be interested to read of anyone visiting with and 8 foot wide ’van though. The views across the Menai straights and over to Snowdon are outstanding although we couldn’t see a lot during our stay because of the weather. Reception on arrival was very friendly and we were soon set up. The price has recently gone up due to the rising cost of energy however we were told that as we had booked some time ago they would honour the old price quoted, which is testament to their honesty. The site itself is level, well spaced and has recycling as well as general waste. Water and toilet emptying are near the entrance, good water pressure so not too long to fill up. An excellent location for exploring the Lleyn peninsula, Anglesey and North Wales in general. We can highly recommend this site and hope to return again in the near future.
