Why stay here ...

Llanfendigaid Estate CL is a tranquil site set in the grounds of a historic Grade II listed mansion of very ancient origins. The site is located in the old orchard and next to a beautifully tended vegetable garden from which produce is available to buy. Both the site and the pitches are moderately flat and are kept mown and all pitches have electrical hook-ups with plenty of space for awnings. There is a 24' x 14' indoor heated swimming pool for use if required.

Llanfendigaid lies less than a mile from the sea and there is an easily accessed local beach. The Wales Coastal path runs within a few hundred yards and there are some excellent walks direct from the site as well as a short distance away. It makes a very good base from which to explore the southern end of Snowdonia National Park and indulge in the many activities available.

Pleasant enough

Llanfendigaid
August 2020 Pleasant enough peaceful & popular CL site with mainly open views. 4 up-market Holiday letting properties adjoin etc were busy and kept Warden active, but caused no issues to us. All 5 pitches had good points and were well spread out to spacious site. Heavy rain had caused some soft ground to site and to some pitches, Grass had an overdue cut during our stay ! The allotment Garden was overgrown and un-tended. Quirky 'loo' with sea view, solo shower next to pool was good & warm (just a £1). Swimming pool (extra cost) was fine but 2020 CV19 access issues part restricted multiple use. Beach 500m to front had no easy access due to coastal Train line between but a handy & popular mini station along lane towards Tywyn has a level crossing to get onto the mainly pebble beach. Area very scenic & clearly Holiday bias - a car helps greatly for longer stays. Fairburn peninsula (7 miles) with mainly sandy beach & dunes area was great for our dogs & walks + had a mini ferry service shortcut over to Barmouth town. Road access towing for us from East / via Queensferry etc was better in from the Tywyn road as coastal way from north & Barmouth estuary had many very narrow choke points - do check routes & satnav issues. Hope this helps and please review your visits to assist others !

Honest review - Feb 2019

Llanfendigaid
Tranquil site on beautiful part of the Welsh coast. (Twywn is worth avoiding but Aberdovey is really nice.) Contacting site was difficult - let msg, never rang back as I just wanted to know if any pitches would be better access for a motorhome in Winter as it's all grass and some sloping. Booked and paid deposit on-line only to find all pitches full when I arrived. Ended up on plot with no hookup - which was fine but not what I booked ( did give me a discount for no electric ). Paid for WIFI , which I needed for work but completely unreliable - don't waste your money - other sites facilities are good and price is very reasonable. If your walking Coastal path - South is excellent, we walked to Aberdovey and got train back, to the North your not really walking the coast due to the terrain.

Relaxing in peace

Llanfendigaid
We visited this site in the 'heatwave' of early July. It was peaceful and quiet and we loved it. We were there outside of school holidays and the whole area was uncrowded. There is no direct access to a sandy beach within easy walking but parking a mile or so down the road at the railway halt (it was in a large military base in WW2) gives an easy stroll to the boulder and pebble sea side. One possible glitch was that when the cottages had young adults staying in them on the last day, they wanted to use the caravan site area as a football pitch and Graham is not on site all of the time to 'keep an eye' open for the potential balls hitting vans/awnings. We had a dog and a cat with us and they both enjoyed the 'safe freedom' of the site and a tip for dog owners is that whilst Tywyn and its beach is 4 miles away, parking is free and good and both N &S of the promenade are dog accessible beaches of flat sand. If you turn down Idris Villas, near the Spar and go to its end it couldn't be more convenient. Will be back for certain. Lightweight gas refills needed a trip to the same road as the Centre for Alternative Technology about 14 miles away - the main Calor agent - as the Spar outlet says 'lightweight have been discontinued' when they are still available.

A CL with an indoor heated swimming pool!

Llanfendigaid
A CL with an indoor heated swimming pool! You pay extra for the use of the pool but it is a great facility. You share the pool with a few holiday cottages but we had it all to ourselves every day. The site itself is very attractive with views of the sea and the surrounding hills. Turn right out of the gate and go back up the lane a little way and you will find a bridleway that winds alongside the hillside at the rear of the site. The views are spectacular from the Pembrokeshire coast to the south and the Lleyn Peninsular to the north. You can see virtually the whole of Cardigan Bay. We were there in mid September and they had just had a week of heavy rain. A few people had been slipping and churning up the grass in the middle of the field. A heavy motor home could have had some problems. Also the grass had not been cut recently so it took a long time to dry out. But overall, a wonderful place to stay and enjoy this part of mid Wales. We enjoyed a trip on the Tallyllyn Railway and a walk up to Bearded Lake in Happy Valley. We didn’t have our tandem with us or we would have tried the cycle route over the new bridge into Tywyn.
