Peaceful CL Site

Gilfachwydd
Lovely peaceful cl site. Excellent scenery. A tranquil area well kept site, ff the quiet Cader Road a few minutes' drive from Dolgellau. 40 minutes walk into Dolgellau beware there is steep hill on your return back to cl site. The directions to site was misleading directions to turn opposite Lucy and Tattum are incorrect. This should show Pen Bryn garage. Also there is no sign Cader Road but there is a brown post directing you to Cader Idris. Highly recommend site.

Peaceful site

Gilfachwydd
First the negative- the directions and CAMC signage weren’t very good. The sign had been put further up driveway out of sight so we missed the turning. Nowhere to turn around along the very narrow lane. Luckily Managed to turn in someone’s drive. But the site itself is rather lovely. Peaceful, nature all around and miles from anywhere. Only stayed 1 night but would like to return (now we know where they are!)

Beautiful site

Gilfachwydd
A tranquil, well kept site, off the quiet Cader Road a few minutes' drive from Dolgellau. Plenty of walks from the site itself, and more within a short drive. Will definitely be coming again!

Tranquil location

Gilfachwydd
Stayed here for 3 nights as trial run in my new caravan and agree the location has lovely views and very convenient for visiting both the coast and mountains. The weather was very wet but no trouble accessing the site with my 2 wheel drive car. Having stayed here some 30 years ago I found it, but still overshot the turning as the directions to turn opposite Lucy and Tattum are incorrect. This should show Pen Bryn garage. Also there is no sign Cader Road but there is a brown post directing you to Cader Idris. There was no CAMC sign at the site entrance.

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.
