Why stay here ...

This peaceful south facing 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.

A very nice and well kept site

Swn Y Mor
A very tidy site, grass pitches and very well drained. Pam and Gary very welcoming and helpful. We were in the field next to the road, a huge pitch and we were allowed to pitch any way we liked. The site is handy for exploring the Llyn and Portmadoc areas. 25 minute walk down to the beach, partly on the main road but there is a good path. There’s a nice pub in the village serving good food. Portmeirion is a must if you are visiting the area. And the Ospreys too. The only downside was the road noise during the day, ok if inside, but quite noisy outside. But overall a great CL.

Nice view of the sea, friendly welcome and while no hard standing the pitches were fine despite heavy Oct rain

Swn Y Mor
We had a friendly welcome from Gary who showed us our pitch …. We could have had our pick as were we the only ones there for 3 nights. The pitches are fenced which is great for dog owners if busy. The ground is level and drains well and so very easy to pitch up and settle down. Water and power on each MH pitch. Lovely view of the sea… some road noise if outside the MH but inside we had no idea. The walk to the beach OK but requires some busy road.

A lovely site but….

Swn Y Mor
We stayed at the site recently for 4 nights having been for the last 2 years. The gent meeting us was really friendly, charming, and engaging. We were allocated a pen as we had a dog which again is a big plus for the site. However it was much smaller then previous. The one next to us was much larger and reserved but only from the next night and we then only used for 2 nights before being empty again so ideally we could have been given that pen? There were some sheep running wild and the owners were waiting for the farmer but it was fun. Throughout our stay there were only 2 other visitors which again was surprising for first week in summer holidays and it had been really busy for the last 2 years so was really lacking in any atmosphere. Having researched other CLs in that area plus a large radius this was the most expensive site. Prices have gone up again by 25% and with no facilities we have to question the value. Rather than stick a negative post - as we put in a really positive one in the past, we emailed Pam and to her absolute credit she responded in a polite, professional manner. It will be sad to see the site closed in the future and moved to holiday homes for disabled but folllowing dreams and passions is what life is all about. So in summary, it remains lovely but is too expensive with no atmosphere.

Beautifully maintained site, very friendly owners

Swn Y Mor
Lovely site, impeccably kept and with very friendly owners. We especially like the dog compounds, which made life a lot easier: we could just let the dogs out of the motorhome without having to tie them up. Very pleasant little dog walk round the field. Will definitely be back.

Great place to stay

Swn Y Mor
We stayed at Swn Y Mor for 4 nights in June in our Motorhome. The site is easy to find and access and the fenced pitch was perfect to let our dog run around in safety. We received a warm welcome from Pam with good advice about the local area, including the best local chippy! The nearby beach was easy to find and almost deserted. All in all it’s a great place to relax or be as active as you want. I’d definitely recommend it.
