A Jewel in Snowdonia

I have just returned from a week at this camp site. I was most impressed by the cleanliness of the whole site from the toilet and shower block to the entrance and surrounds of the pitches. We were greeted by two very friendly wardens and given our pitch number - no having to drive around looking for a free pitches per other Club sites. The shop onsite is well appointed and they have a selection of walks in the area available for a nominal fee of 10p - we completed the walk to Llan Elsi on Sunday - a hike up the hill but definitely worth the effort as the scenery is spectacular as it is in all of the surrounding areas. The village of Betws-y-Coed is a five minute walk through the train station and the village is full of independent shops and cafes and hotels. We had a couple of meals in The Royal Oak in the grill room and would defiantly recommend it for service and value. The towns of Portmerion, Llanberis- at the foot of Snowden, Porthmadog and Conway are all easily accessible from the campsite with plenty to see and if you were visiting in Spring I would recommend a visit to Bodnant Gardens (National Trust). We were lucky with the weather however there is still plenty to do indoors. The trains passing did make some noise but we got used to them - they only run during the week not on weekends. I would highly recommend this site and I look forward to returning again at a different time of the year. Well done to all those involved in maintaining it.

Lovely Site - fab location

We stayed here last Easter for four days and had a wonderful time. The site was clean and in walking distance of the village so perfect for exploring this beautiful area. Well worth the drive

5 STAR SITE????

This site is situated next to the railway line which shook the ground when one came past. The toilet block was a real hike to get too. The facilities were clean but a bit of a walk into the village. It was definitely overpriced and they wanted to charge for any extras like dogs, awnings, WiFi. Would not stay again.

Riverside Retreat

Arrived for a 6 night stay for the Spring Bank week. All amenities spot on even though only 4 showers but didn't find this a problem as we never had to queue. Lovely little village of Betws Y Coed within 5 minutes walk with 3/4 pubs serving food. Ample walks both for the casual stroll and the more adventurous hiker, beautiful scenery. Only one concern to point out is the entrance road to the site could be a little tricky as the is also the entrance road to the golf course and also the parking area for the train station, please do not arrive before 1pm as advised as there is no allowance for 2 van/motor homes to pass. All in all a good relaxing stay will return. Caravan club could take a lesson from Morris Leisure's standards.

Good site but pricey.

We stayed here for 3 nights in March. It's a good site which is a few minutes from Betws y Coed. The pitches are all of a good size & have digital TV on the bollards. The facility block is immaculate but sited at the entrance to the site amongst the static caravans making it a bit of a hike for tourers at the bottom end of the site. Next to the site is a Golf course and there is a excellent circular dog walk which starts & finishes at the site. Also next to the site is the train line and trains run from 6am 6 days a week. We didn't find this a problem because even thou the 6am train did wake us each day we are early risers. For us a negative was the pitch price , we paid £31 for 2 adults and a dog on a serviced pitch. This was in low season & we felt it was expensive for the time of year. To sum up this is a well kept site close to the village, the pitches are large & the toilet block 1st class. The wardens were friendly & helpful, for some the trains running from early morning will be a problem & the price per night in the off season is on the high end. That said if we are ever in the area again we would use this site.
