Beautiful Site

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

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.

Quite site

We stayed here for a few days on our trip to North Wales. I was given full instructions before arrival on where to pay etc if no-one was around. Didn't actually see any owner for the whole time, but that was fine as everything was self explanatory. Site only had room for about 5 units, there are no facilities on this site at all (apart from water and chemical toilet disposal). It was very peaceful with lovely scenery. Walking distant to Dolgellau town and to walks etc. Only issue was a lot of midges around!!

Great CL in ideal spot for touring and walking local area

Spent 7 nights here Aug 2017. It was perfect for us - quiet, great location and good walking easily accessible. Appreciated the easy dog-walking on site for early and late walks. Road up from Dolgellau is tight with caravan but can be walked in about 40 minutes to go into town for the evening. If you want owner / caretaker on site for welcome or queries this would not suit, but if you are happy being self sufficient then would recommend it.
