Hits the mark in every aspect!

I'm not sure how this site could be rated anything other than 5 stars. I stayed here for 2 nights earlier this week and my only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. Andy and Helen are very friendly and welcoming. The pitches are very well laid out and beautifully maintained. The views and scenery are stunning and it's a very peaceful location with excellent links to local attractions. The home made jam which was for sale via an honesty box was just amazing too, so much so that we cleared them out completely! Look forward to returning there in the future.

One of the best we have stayed at so far...

Cefn Eithin
We can only agree with all the points previously made in the reviews. Andy was very helpful on arrival and throughout our stay. He recommended a stunning route up Snowdon and checked back with us that all had gone to plan. The location of the site is great for beach lovers and all that North Wales has to offer. We very much enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this site, it is very spacious and well maintained.

One of the best CLs for views

Cefn Eithin
Can only agree with everyone else's opinion that this is a great Cl. The views over the Menai Straits especially in the glorious sunsets are some of the best we have seen from a Cl, and then you turn round and there are mountains in all directions. There is a good beach just three miles away, nearer if you are brave enough to use the minor road, we did and never again! The gorge at Nant Gwrtheyrn just eleven miles away gives any continental gorge a good run for its money. And then you are so central here for anything else North Wales can offer.

Fabulous CL Site

Cefn Eithin
What a find this CL site was. The owners were very welcoming on arrival and found them to be very friendly during our 4 night stay in September. Owners well into recycling with boxes clearly marked and you can deposit veg peelings into their compost bin. Site itself is like sitting in owners garden, very well maintained and a lovely site, could not find any fault. Each pitch has it own little area with hook up, well spaced out. Site also has holiday cottages. Site in good location for Snowden and Anglesey. Good views of mountains on one side and Anglesey on the other. If you have a dog there is a good walk at the end of road, turn right up the road and keep walking, you will then come to a walk/cycle track that runs parallel with main road, lovely safe walk to let dog off the lead.

Super CL

Cefn Eithin
Stayed on this CL for 8 nights and were sad to leave. The CL is very well maintained and thoughtfully laid out, spacious yet cosy! The owners friendly. Even a designated bit of green for our children to race around in. Stunning views over to he mountains and coast. The site is not far from Caernarvon for supermarket/fuel etc. We enjoyed lots of beach days on Angelesy and nearby Dinas Dilline and visited national trust places. Would happily use this CL again.
