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.

Quiet site, good location, friendly staff - toilet block needs a refresh

Coed-Y-Llwyn Caravan Club Site
We stayed w/c 9th October and found the site to be clean, tidy and the wardens were friendly. The toilet block is a little dated/needs upgrading but that said, the wardens kept it spotlessly clean. Nice pub over the road (The Bryn Arms) which is reasonably priced and offers a few limited gluten free options if you have a need for a GF diet as my wife does. Some good walks direct from the site and we also drove to Croesor for a walk (climb/scramble up Cnicht which is the welsh version of the Matterhorn). It's a challenging hike so only do it if you are experienced and reasonably fit. Overall a good site to stay on, quiet with some good views (once the clouds clear :-) ).

Shower block

Coed-Y-Llwyn Caravan Club Site
This site is a perfect location for us due to the proximity to Coed y Brenin forest for great mountain biking. Had a terrible journey so only turned up at 7.45 which i thought was great until i arrived to find the reception closed !!! Fortunately i hung around for some time and the warden saw me and allowed me to check in, again not the most friendly though, I felt as if he was doing me a favour. The most important thing to note is the extremely poor quality of the shower block. Showers with no changing area or bench is not what you expect nowadays on club sites, I have not visited the majority of the club sites but these facilities including the dish wash area are by far the worst I have encountered on my travels. There are numerous other camp sites in the area so next time i think i will be staying at one of those.

Lovely place

Coed-Y-Llwyn Caravan Club Site
This is just a lovely site. We cycled at nearby Coed y Brenin cycle trail centre and along the estuary on the Mawddach Trail to Barmouth (beware the bridge is closed till mid-December but the little ferry was prepared to take bikes). The weather was okay to good during our stay so I guess we saw it all at pretty much its best. The facilities are no doubt on the list for updating (they need it!) but they’re all kept spotlessly clean. Big shout out to assistant site manager Mike - what an absolute star: perhaps the most welcoming, friendly, helpful CC person we’ve come across. And we have yet to encounter a grumpy one! Certainly a place I’d very happily revisit.

Quiet and Peaceful

Coed-Y-Llwyn Caravan Club Site
Arrived 29th Aug, the site was quiet and peaceful and had a lovely Sunday Lunch at the Pub across the road, only booked for a week but the staff / wardens were able to extend for 2 weeks. All the facilities are good if a little dated but clean. For 2 weeks we had peace and quiet and beautiful weather, the pitches are well looked after and large enough and they are spread over a number of different areas surrounded by trees, there is a small dog walking area. The village it sits beside is quiet. Porthmadog about 10 miles away has Tesco Lidl and Aldi and of course the Ffestiniog Railway. Being on the edge of Snowdonia gives you so many places to visit. Will i be back most certainly. Overall a very good site friendly staff a handy Pub and on the edge of stunning scenery and not to far from a very large beach.

Dated showers but good site

Coed-Y-Llwyn Caravan Club Site
Decent site let down by shower block,hot water taps in sinks far too hot ,need temperature control on,nowhere to hang your clothes,everything gets wet,nor reason to have coded lock on.I know this may be coincidence but this is the 3rd site this year the wi fi hasn’t been working ,been very weak or not available without roaming the site,in this instance out of order for the time we were there and still out of order when we left,Air Angel need to sort this out especially when you pay for a year in advance.Rant now over Site well cared for by Wardens,plenty of places to go to nearby,
