Ideal spot

Gilfachwydd
Spent 2 nights here tavelling North on our way to Scotland. Great spot with water and recycling bins etc as you enter. Fabulous views from the top of the 2 fields that have a mown walk around them - only the first field is camping. When you get there select your spot and then drive around behind the caravans shown in the photo so you can drive straight though - no reversing. We stayed on the last place which has quite a slope at the back. The rear of the caravan was nearly touching the ground when levelled but no problem. This was the worst place for this but quietest as furthest from the entrance. The main road is immediatly in fron of you the other side of the hedge but no problem with little traffic in September No problem with the entrance - we are 11.75m in ttal length witrh a 7.3m caravan. Just be carefull. Further down the road is a National Trust car park for walking - minimum £3 which is not enough to walk to the top and back. Recomend the Cosy fish bar takeaway in town and there is some parking there, but be awaring of the one way system taking the left tuen before it and then the first right. I do not recomend taking a mid to alrge motorhome there though. Excellent price and very helpfull on the phone. Orginal email using cl site address had no reply and then given another one when I booked. Yes we would stay here again and for a longer time. We would however not travel up the west coast again to travel to Scotland from Pembrokeshire as so slow.

Just returned from staying five nights at this site. This site is extremely well-kept with fantastic views from the seat at the top of the site. It is in a wonderful setting with good access to plenty of walking and cycling. Jan, the caretaker, was extremely helpful and very pleasant to speak to. We don’t normally return to sites that we have already stayed at, but would very much like to with this site.

Beautiful Site

Gilfachwydd
We spent just over a week at this CL in August and absolutely loved it. The site is located up on the hillside and the caravans are on a level section at the bottom of a hill. If you climb up to the top of the field where there is a wooden bench to sit on you are presented with an amazing view of the hills and mountains. It's very peaceful even when it is full. We didn't see the owner or caretaker while we were there and the payment system is by putting money in an envelope into a letterbox. Just down the road is a lovely short walk around a very peaceful lake and there are footpaths all around. During our stay we were able to watch a hare grazing and a leveret playing in the longer grass. The town of Dolgellau is just down the road and has a good variety of shops and amenities. Barmouth is not far away and a walk across the railway bridge that spans the estuary is a must. A very scenic area of Wales and a beautiful and peaceful CL. We will be returning.

Peaceful location

Gilfachwydd
This is a quiet and peaceful location, the grass is mown regularly and short. The pitches are clearly laid out with stone electricity points between them. Lots of walks and drives from the site and easy access into Dolgellau. An information pack is provided by email when you book, and the caretaker visits regularly. Whilst there are no open views from the site due to trees and hedges, this does mean that the site is more sheltered and screened form the nearby road (which was very quiet).

Amazing, such an absolue gem.

We have known and loved the Dolgellau area of Gwynedd for many a long year, but this was the first time we have visited the area in our self built campervan. The weather was unbelievably brilliant during our visit, so much so that during our 4 day stop we didn't see a single cloud! The facilities at the site are perfectly adequate and the dog field is an absolute bonus that our 3 Springer Spaniels loved. We will be back and sooner rather than later.
