Why stay here ...

Located in the glorious lush surroundings of Snowdonia National Park, Coed-y-Llwyn Club Site is a sight to behold for those visiting for the first time. The caravan park has been developed with families in mind making the park an all-round place of activity or relaxation. Whatever mood you happen to be in!

The Coed-y-Llwyn Club Site is particularly geared up for outdoor lovers, who can venture up Snowdon, enjoy the range of water sports at Lake Bala, find safe sandy beaches on the Lleyn Peninsula, play golf at Porthmadog, and cycle in the mountain bike centre at Coed-y-Brenin. Cycling can also be enjoyed at Blaenau Ffestiniog, with traffic free routes nearby or on the beautiful Mawddach Trail from Barmouth to Dolgellau. Zip World, home to the largest and longest zip lines in Europe is only a short drive away, there are two locations you can enjoy, Blaenau Ffestiniog and Bethesda.

As the caravan site is situated in Gellilydan, Blaenau Ffestiniog (narrow gauge) visitors must take a ride on its railway, an essential journey for all rail enthusiasts. Even more so is a visit to Portmeirion - location for the cult 60s TV series 'The Prisoner' - designed to show that even the most beautiful site could be developed without spoiling it. There are 5 steam railways within an hour's travel from the site with The Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland being the most popular. There is also the Snowdon Mountain Railway, one of the biggest attractions in Snowdonia. You can also visit historical castles such as Harlech and Caernarfon.

There are three beautiful landscape gardens within 10 miles of the site. Portmeiron is the most famous and has stunning views over Dwyryd estuary. The lesser known is Plas Tan Y Bwlch, 13 acres of Victorian woodland trails. There is also Plas Brondanw with its stunning view of Snowdon and Cnicht.

The newest attraction in Snowdonia is "Surf Snowdonia" (approx. 50min drive/27 miles from the Site). It is the world's first inland surfing lagoon, with continuous rolling waves. It caters for beginners as well as experienced surfers and has free entry and parking for spectators.

wonderful experience in the end!

Firstly we have to give high praise to the wardens who were so very helpful in our predicament of having our movers locked on. They went all out to get us the help we needed and throughout our stay they continued to be supportive. The wardens gave the air of being proud of their site and this is born out by the way they run it. The site is immaculate and the pitches well spaced. The location is perfect for touring and there are so many beautiful locations to visit you are spoilt for choice. The nearby pub and restaurant serves good food. We were probably very lucky with the weather but all in all this is one of the best sites we have visited and would recommend it to any club member. Bunty Knight

Beautiful Location

Loved our time here, its a very quiet site, lots of things to travel to which were not to far away. Nice pub 2 mins from site which does food and had sky sports. Staff on the site were very lovely. Shower block was nice and clean. Would defo visit again. Wanted to go on the snowdonia train but we got there and it was fully booked so be advised to book in advance online. No shops near, nearest was about 20 mins by car. The reception sold a few items like milk and ice lollies. Nice size pitches. A very nice site would visit again.

This was a first!

Having managed to see a cancellation on-line, we set off to Coed y llwyn, which we visit a few times a year, it was after paying for the three night stay that we were advised we were being allocated a pitch as the site was full that evening. As we have an ‘average size’ 2 berth caravan we were shocked, never before on any caravan and motorhome club site have we been told that we could not choose any vacant pitch available. To make matters worse our van is neither long nor an unusual size and the ground conditions on site were neither wet or waterlogged in the nice heatwave we are currently having, and these are the circumstances described in the rules where pitch allocation may be necessary. Anyway we went to the pitch allocated to us only to find it was occupied already. Rather than drive round to the office with the van in tow we decided to call the sites reception for advice, we were told to come back to reception with van in tow to get an alternative pitch, I advised the warden that I had reversed on a vacant pitch to prevent congestion on the one way system, only to be told the vacant un reserved pitch was allocated to a van due to arrive later the same day and we would need to wait to be told where we could pitch even though we had seen four other vacant pitches we could have pitched on. We questioned this and were told to pitch up where we were. As I was finally securing the Alko wheel lock aligned at last! The Lady warden arrived asking us to move to another pitch because she said she had a lot of big units coming in and she quoted how long our van was and that we didnt need a big pitch. That infuriated us more as we all pay the same for a standard pitch with awning and so they should all be the same size!! This was the last straw, we wanted to leave and get a refund, but we were told to stay where we were. What a carry on, if there were limited white peg pitches available for large vans coming in why weren’t these pitches reserved with a cone or sign? Why discriminate against the normal small 2 berth caravan? We weren’t the only outfit treated this way, we found out later, and we were shunned by the warden for the rest of the weekend. We and our neighbours on the next pitch won’t be visiting this site again.

Good touring location

Excellent base to tour this part of North Wales. We visited areas from Barmouth right up to Colwyn Bay as well as spending a day at Bodnant Gardens.

Warm Welcome!

At last, some wardens which are personable and able to exchange in genuine conversation. The site is very well maintained with a nice feel to it, the wardens clearly work hard keeping the place tidy and enjoy what they do. Upon arrival they are friendly and explain everything you need to know well. We stayed for a long weekend and was well placed for mountain biking at Coed-y-Brennin (8 miles away) and Zip World, approx 30 miles away. There is a small dog work which is enough to let you dog off for a short while and a nice play area for the children. Access is easy and not far off the main road. North wales is great for outdoors lovers with the site well placed for all attractions in this part of Wales. We shall be returning.
