Why stay here ...

This peaceful site, nestled in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the edge of Snowdonia National Park, offers stunning sea and mountain views. Guests can enjoy the site’s tree-covered picnic area and large duck pond, or take a short stroll to the local beach, which can also be reached by car and has a small car park.

There are many good walking routes near the site. Dogs can run free on all local beaches, including Black Rock Sands, where you can park on the beach. Bus stops next to the site serve local towns, and Criccieth has a mainline station.

The site is an ideal base for visiting Snowdonia National Park and local attractions such as Portmeirion village (where The Prisoner was filmed), the Lloyd George Museum and many castles in the area, including Criccieth, Caernarfon, Harlech, Conwy and Penrhyn. Visitors can enjoy a trip on the Welsh Highland Railway through the mountains from Porthmadog to Caernarfon. Ffestiniog Railway (20% discount for Club members) takes a shorter route through the mountains Porthmadog to Ffestiniog. Criccieth offers eating houses, bars and specialist local food and gift shops. There are large supermarkets in Pwllheli (4 miles) and Porthmadog (7 miles).

This is an adults only site. Dogs are welcome if kept on the lead (to protect sheep in nearby fields).

Nice few days

Easy to find. Pleasant welcome from Carol who pointed out waste disposal, recycling points and choice of pitches. Grass cut short. Good location for exploring the whole of the Lleyn peninsula. Some nice beaches and coastal walks. Yes some noise from the road but as previous review said I think more from the main road but none of it an issue. Open site though a little bit sloppy in places. Would happily stay again.

Excellent Dog Friendly Site

We had a lovely welcome on arrival by Carol who walked us to our allocated pitch. She had mentioned on the telephone when I booked that she would put us in the 'fenced field'. We were shown through a gate into a large field with 4 fenced off pitches with their own water and electric supply and gate. We had the end pitch which gave us lots of room for the caravan, awning, car and 2 dogs. Never before have we had the luxury of just opening the caravan door and letting the dogs out without the need for getting dressed, putting on footwear, leads etc. They could run around, play ball etc and be fully contained. Halfway through our stay, sheep were put on the field which was lovely. The whole site is well kept and has lots of quirky 'ornaments' around. We found the site convenient to tour the whole of the peninsular and also to go around the Snowdonia region. Lots of supermarkets in Portmadoc if required. We found the site easily. The road noise mentioned was not annoying to us - we could hear the main road traffic more than the traffic on the access road as we were on the bottom field. The recycling was interesting! The site is in a beautiful area - take a left out of the gate and walk a few yards to the lane on the right and follow the path up and after approximately a mile, the path runs parallel to the coast with beautiful views over the fields to the bay. We drove down to the local beach (only 2/3 car spaces for parking) and had a walk along the sea shore. There are some beautiful beaches on the peninsular, some are dog friendly and some are limited access during the summertime. We enjoyed our stay and would return - hopefully to the same pitch.

Perfect rural retreat with easy access to places of interest

We have just spent a wonderful fortnight at this lovely site. The owners are very welcoming and work very hard to maintain the immaculate grass and surrounding gardens. They are full of local knowledge and happy to give information and ideas on where to go and what to do. The site is slightly sloping and levelling blocks are required. The ground is firm and each pitch is huge. Your pitch is just that ... to use as you want and your outfit can be parked as you like it within that space. Access to the main road is only a 3 minute drive away, so perfect when days out are planned. Yes, as others have said, there is some road noise on the CL site, but the noise isn't constant as the road is a minor one. It didn't bother us at all. We had a 5 star stay and would recommend to other caravanners wholeheartedly.

Immaculate site, shame about the road

This is an immaculate site, as several other members have said with good access. It is however spoiled by the road (seems to be quite 'innocent' when you arrive) which runs a few feet from two of the pitches. It seems to bother some people more than others - we found it to be really annoying, especially first thing in the morning - it's obviously a short cut from somewhere to the coast road along the South of the Lleyn Peninsular. Sorry, but I feel I have to mention it as it spoiled our otherwise pleasant stay.

Excellent

We enjoyed a great week here. The owners were very welcoming and friendly and the site is kept clean and tidy. We pitched near the duck pond. The recycling took a bit of getting used to as they recycled almost everything (we don't at home). Surprising how little waste you actually needed to dispose of. The instructions to the site were very good - didn't get lost. Access was easy. In a good location for exploring the area. Would recommend to our friends . Thanks for having us
