Great location for the Llyn Peninsula

Rhiw Afon
Easy to find location, access a little tight. As mentioned a small lay-by outside does attract vehicles taking a break, sometimes during the night. There are two areas to pitch, we chose the first one, so a little further to the CDP and bins but not a problem. The pitches were mostly level with a gentle slope on one, were well kept and newly cut. A water tap is provided in both fields with ample electric points to allow a choice of pitch positions. Waste can be directed into the hedgerow. We didn’t use the facilities as prefer our own, however they looked clean when we looked inside. Recycling bins are provided and encouraged by the owner who was friendly and helpful. There is some noise from the road which can be busy, but it doesn’t detract from the tranquility of the stay. The house field will have less noise as buffered by the buildings. Good tv and phone signal on our pitch, but the first field is prone to a bit of wind from the west. All in all a good stay at a great site with excellent access to the Llyn peninsula. Recommend, the fish and chip shop near the castle in Criccieth - the very long queue outside was definitely a good sign and worth the wait. The nearby Goat Inn serves great food (advisable to book) and Portmerieon is worth a visit. Aldi, Lidl and Tesco in nearby Porthmadog and Asda in . The petrol station at Tesco is very tight - don’t take the van! Thanks for a great stay - we will return.

Really enjoyed our extended stay!

Rhiw Afon
We originally booked a week over the Christmas holidays, and ended up staying for almost 3 weeks as we loved it that much! The site is divided into 2 grassy fields, we stayed on the first one as directed by the owners, as the second did suffer from flooding problems after prolonged bad weather. There is a toilet and shower, plus a free laundry service, making the place great value. Phone reception is good too. We were able to access the whole of the Lleyn peninsula from the site. The only problem we encountered was that there is a layby/pull-in in the lane directly outside the site, so we had occasional disturbances from goods vehicles idling there. On another occasion we would consider a pitch further away from the entrance. Traffic noise from the main road is not a problem however. All in all a great holiday and highly recommended.

Great site

Rhiw Afon
We had a wonderful stay at Rhiw Afon. The site is beautifully maintained, with level pitches and plenty of space in between pitches. The facilities are well maintained and the owners very helpful. It is a great place from which to explore the Llyn Peninsula, which is an absolute delight. We will definietely return to the peninsula adn to Rhiw Afon.

A lovely site

Rhiw Afon
We enjoyed this CL very much over the Easter break. It is a great location for cycling - very close to the traffic free cycle route which is accessed by very quiet lanes; a trip that allowed young and old to enjoy even though granddad ( 70 yrs old) was out paced by 7yr old granddaughter! The location is also close to Black Rock sands where you can park ( only £5 day) on an endless sandy beach. The well kept grass is conveniently flat ( no levelling blocks) and their is the bonus of a toilet and shower. There is excellent pub food or an Indian restaurant \ take away about a mile away.There is some traffic noise during the day but this is offset by the lovely scenery and the warm welcome from the owners. We will definitely be returning . Tony Parker

Thoroughly enjoyable 3 nights just spent at Rhiw Avon. Great views and very convenient for access to all parts of the Llyn peninsula. We will be back. Road noise was not a major issue. Entrance a little tight; just need to be careful (7.55 m tourer).
