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.

Lovely site

Stayed 6 nights in our Caravan in May. Lovely site with the advantage of an off site local club/pub/restaurant just outsite the site which was very welcoming. Only niggle is there was no sign on the main road indicating that the site was down the road. As it was a narrow road we were not sure so travelled pass, in each direction, a couple of times!!!! Apart from that absolutely lovely.

Short stay

Having stayed in South Wales for a week we decided to travel up through Wales on route home & stay here for a couple of nights to break up the journey. We stayed here a few years ago & the place hasn’t altered a bit. A nice tidy site with lovely wardens who even offered us some Welsh fruit cake on arrival. My only gripe is the signage coming up to it off the main road. There is none! Not until you turn off anyway. I missed it coming down the hill & had to do a dodgy u turn about half a mile further down the hill & boy do they motor down it. No TV signal on my pitch 59 . I think the higher you are on the site the better the chance you have of getting one. No such issues with mobile or internet though. Would recommend if using as a base for mountain hiking,beaches, plane spotting.

Excellent base to explore Snowdonia

We stayed here for two nights recently,.. our first experience of The Caravan and Motorhome sites. We had a lovely welcome from the wardens who were very helpful. The site facilities were absolutely spotless with lovely warm showers . We did use the pub once as other half hadn’t packed the spanner for our spare gas bottle and we ran out! The food was typical bar food but was good, fresh and hot and the barman was very welcoming. The site is very easy to get to and pretty central for sightseeing, We visited Portmeirion and Beddgelert during our stay. Unfortunately we didn’t do Llanberis this time as the weather was pretty awful. We would definitely recommend this site and will revisit in the summer.

Snowdonia Gateway

Stayed for just over a week towards the end of March. Dog walk area is a lovely secluded little haven to let them off the lead.Clean and exceptional facilities, lovely staff and even overstayed our departure by an hour due to a 7 month baby and no perceived pressure to leave at 11:00 from the staff. Would highly recommend the 'river' walk from Beddgelert heading south. Stunning scenery, dog friendly if not baby friendly for the timid but well worth the effort. Didn't try the pub over the road. Avoid approaching on the B4391 from Llangynog. I was fine but the wife wasn't.

Lovely site

Lovely site just a 40min journey from Llanberis (start of Snowdon trail). Not much around the site so very quiet. Pub across the road serving food which I wouldn’t recommend. Site wardens very helpful and recommended us a spot out of the way of bad weather.
