Beautiful site with hardstandings and facilities.

Bryn-y-Gwin Farm
We stayed at Bryn y Gwin farm for 3 nights in early November and had the CL to ourselves. It is in a great position perched on the side of a hill overlooking Dolgellau with the uplands of the Cadair Idris range behind it. It is surrounded by pretty woodland and tumbling streams. The drinking water was good and, compared to some other CLs, the 2 toilets and single shower were good. First of all because they exist (many CLs don't have them) and also because they were clean and fully functional. They are a bit of a trek from the CL field and a torch is required at night but we use our onboard shower and toilet anyway. All pitches are made of crushed slate and are reasonably flat as they are terraced into the sloping site. It's a fantastic site if you like scenery, walks and nature. We'll be back.

Perfect

Bryn-y-Gwin Farm
We took instructions from Ian which better than going through the town , our pitch good used ramps but easy to level hardly anything , we got a tv signal fine, site gorgeous although 15 min to walk down to town very secluded through woodland on good road we had no problems at all. Drinking water clear although I use bottle water for drinking anyway, think wc off different supply and slight tinge, wc and shower rustic but does the job few cobwebs but didn’t bother me most important not smelly fine. Owners good with all the info. So handstand electric glorious setting use shower wc chemical waste water supply for £17.50 very good glad we came .

Gorgeous site but badly let down by facilities

Bryn-y-Gwin Farm
I stayed at this site last month. It is well situated for the local sights and hikes, with an accessible hike up to Cader Idris just a mile up the road. Pitches are of a good size and pretty level. However, the toilet facilities are awful! I think someone comes in each morning to throw a mop around, but the toilets, sinks, windowsills and shower are filthy. Other members we spoke to said this was the worst CL they have ever stayed at. This was our first experience of a CL and has somewhat tarnished our opinion of others. I know the facilities are basic and I have no issues with that, but there is no excuse for the neglect of the toilet block.

Great site BUT ...........

Bryn-y-Gwin Farm
Our first visit here. A lovely site with fabulous views and very helpful owner. Sadly it is let down by very dodgy brown filtered drinking water - fortunately the local Co-op has a good supply of bottled water. We couldn't face using the water out of the tap after the inside of our kettle went brown. TV reception is impossible on some pitches and be aware that the toilet and shower facilities are shared with about 20 commercial pitches. If you can cope with these problems, this is a little corner of heaven.

This is a good site, can accomodate when the CL is full

Bryn-y-Gwin Farm
I tried to book the CL here, but it was full. The owner has two other small commercial sites at the same price, sharing the same facilites and he could fit me in. Deposit and payment was via BACS (a plus for me). Sadly the facilities were closed (due to COVID) for my visit, so i can't comment, other than they are a ~30-40 metre walk from the CL. The road up to the site is a bit narrow and steep, but little used so i had no issues, the pitches on the CL and the site adajcent that i used were hard standing and of a good standard and Ian gave me a friendly welcome. This site's best asset is it's setting and the wealth of fabulous walking/cycling on the doorstep. The Mawddach Trail is very easy to get to from the site(turn left out of the site, left on the main road, then right into a service road for some houses then down a short, narrow footpath and over a footbridge). The road back up is rather steep though! I walked Cader Idris from the site, short drive away are the Panorama walk above Barmouth and the precipice walk above Dolgellau. Rhobell Fawr/DDuallt and Y Garn are aslo nearby for any mountain baggers and just up the road, Cregellen Lakes are well worth a visit, especially with a good sunset. I loved this site as a great base for walking/cycling, it might be a bit basic for some, but it's location is perfect for Dolgellau/Barmouth/Coed-y-Brenin etc
