Good but...

This is a lovely site. Not too difficult to get to, lovely location and well-kept. The staff are friendly and polite and everything was clean and tidy. There are a couple of issues though. Rules arent adhered to. The info states (among other thing) that there should be no scooters, only one car per pitch and no ball games. I saw all of these broken within half an hour of arriving. Not really a problem but why state it? The two car thing was more annoying as a couple of cars were encroaching into the road. More of an issue was the toilet block and pitch allocation. We arrived just after 1 and the site was half empty. We were allocated pitch 33 which was right at the bottom end. I think it’s fair to say this is the last pitch we would have picked. It’s a good job we like walking as it was a thousand steps to the toilets and back. Speaking of toilets, they are a bit inadequate. They were very clean but when you are walking so far, you don’t really want to see them all occupied. Whoever chose where to put the serviced pitches didnt really think it through. The Club could do with standardising speeds on all sites as 10 mph is the limit for this site and as we all know, a lot of people go a little bit over, including site staff..... I will definitely revisit this site as it was lovely and well-placed but I would choose a serviced pitch next time.

A very pleasant site

We had a certain amount of difficulty finding the entrance - although, once we had done so, we realised it is quite well marked. Do not be put off by the statics around the entrance, once one gets inside it is well laid out and maintained. Julie in reception was in a great state when we arrived because she could only fit us in to two different pitches for our two night's stay. This, of course, did not matter in the slightest and we had great fun teasing her about it. WiFi is available at £5 for 48 hours (cheaper than the going rate on Club Sites!) This is a very convenient site for exploring Snowdonia. All the facilities are clean and more than adequate. Recommended

First solo trip in my motorhome

I visited this site as my first solo trip with a motorhome. Having never camped or used a Motorhome I was relieved to find the Irish couple who welcomed me were very helpful, friendly and always willing for a chat. I had a dog with me and access to the river walk that goes into the village of Betws y Coed is easily accessed from the site and is a pleasant 10 minute walk. The gold club next door says it welcomes visitors and they do a Sunday lunch as well as snacks at other times. In the town a number of cafes and shops allow dogs and there are numerous walks from the village and maps available from the site. I didn't see any specific children friendly equipment on site but it was good to see families playing in the river. A quiet, picturesque and well located site that I will visit again - 2 nights was not enough! Thank you.

Wet Betws?

An ‘affiliated’ C&MC site but actual part of the Morris Leisure group. The site is accessed thought the Morris static site village and the touring site at the bottom end of the site. Large hardstanding pitches, half being fully serviced. Site is adjacent to golf course and a gate at the bottom end of the site provides access to the circular public riverside footpath between the golf course and the river Conway, good for walking dogs. Morris’s high stand of very clean amenities block, TV reception poor but each EHU has TV point which does give good quality. Wi-Fi is available at a cost of £ 5. 00/48 hours, village cafes provide free connection? 5 minute walk takes you to the touristy Betws-Y-Coed village with numerous tourist shops and cafes, couple of small Spar type supermarkets. The site is only 30m above sea level but the Snowdonia Mountains dominate the site and are the reason for the heavy rainfall that averages over 1m/annum making the area one of the wettest in Wales! An easy 4 ½ mile bike ride along the quite B5106 takes you to the next village of Llanrwst which has local shops a bakers and a couple of butches. The road takes you past the ancient Gwydr castle which is worth a visit. Overall nice spacious site, wonderful mountain scenery, wet weather gear recommended!

Ideal New Year break !

Our first try at a New Year 3 night break. This site was ideal ! And fully booked whilst we were there.. Excellent location, close to Betws (and its railway station) where all shops and cafes were open on New Years Eve and New Years day. Great base for short easy walks along the river into Betws or the more adventurous walkers. The toilet block was warm and clean and very well maintained. Couple of tips when visiting this Riverside site. (And not in the control of the site) This is quiet peaceful spot but if you don't want to wake early with the train hoots (7 am) then take earplugs.Also it is next to a sewage farm so can be pongy even when its cold !. Finally, the drinking water here tastes awful, even when boiled, and the bottled water in local shops is cheekily overpriced so plan ahead and take your own.
