Very nice Site .

Bryn-y-Gwin Farm
What a very nice site with beautiful views and easy access to more places than you could shake a stick at . We received a very warm Welcome fro Ian , he showed us where all the facilities were and where to pitch our caravan . Ian was also telling me his exciting news on the new toilet and shower block he’s having built. This site is all about the great outdoors and has everything going for it . Ok the site needs some updating and TLC . But saying that the only way any business can improve is through investment. So bottom line you won’t get me moaning about the booking fee . Worth every penny . Thanks for a really great stay . Kr Bob & Audrey .

Sadly in need of some TLC

Bryn-y-Gwin Farm
We have just stayed at this site for 3 nights. The first thing to say is that it is not £16.50 nor £17 that some people paid last year, but £20..and it has to be said that it is overpriced. For that you get your pitch and electric, there is a toilet but it is very old and in need of some work and their shower doesn't not work ( Ian did tell us this on the phone, so we knew there was no shower & believe he is going to get it repaired). The drinking water is nice here, beautifully clear and tastes great. The CL field was mown but grass not picked up it appeared? and the hardstandings looked like they were grass as there has been no maintenance done on them clearly for some time. They are uneven and you will need some levelling blocks to help you. You are in a beautiful spot and can get a great view to look at from your caravan window, and are right next to the woods where you can walk for miles, you are also within walking distance of Dolgellau and its shops and cafes etc. A few things of note, if you are a long outfit like us- entering the CL field was really tight and took a few manoeuvres to get round the gate post. Secondly, this CL also has 6 seasonal pitches in a field just across from the CL and there is also another set of raised pitches further up, which are really nicely done! (they make the CL look like the poor relation) but there is only the same 2 toilets and 1 shower for all of these pitches it seems and I think only the 1 water tap etc So for us, we won't be back- we came from a site that had fully serviced pitches and landscape and views to die for and they only charged £25...At £20 here- they have overpriced themselves sadly and that accounts for our rating.

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.
