Why stay here ...

Located in the glorious lush surroundings of Snowdonia National Park, Coed-y-Llwyn Club Campsite 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 Campsite 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.

Peaceful Break

Coed-Y-Llwyn Club Campsite
Helpful friendly staff from the minute we arrived. Always happy to help and give advise when asked about both the area and camping issues. The facilities were spotlessly clean whenever I went in. There was a small shop with a few basis supplies, including milk and bread. There were plenty of walks from the site and also excellent cycling. Some of the cycling was not for the faint hearted as a lot of the hills were very strenuous. The route around the lake was beautiful however some stretches were very steep, but the views were definitely worth it. The Bryn arms which is a 5 min walk from the site served excellent food. There is a bus stop within 10 min walk from the site with buses to Porthmadog. We had an excellent stay here and would definitely come to this site again.

Motorhomes on site pitches

Coed-Y-Llwyn Club Campsite
Lovely quiet site but Motorhomes need to be able to park centre peg, the 6m rule would still be ok. We pay for the full pitch. Some cars are hybrid/electric and some run on LPG so the issue is the same, petrol cars are highly flammable also. Diesel is the safest fuel which most Motorhomes run on. We also noticed outfits were let on site at 11am on Easter Sunday………. The above issues are an ongoing problem and need to looked at in depth.

A well kept campsite, perfect for exploring the local area

Coed-Y-Llwyn Club Campsite
We visited this site last weekend for a mini break in our camper van. All wardens were really welcoming and friendly. They really went our of their way to help us when we arrived, as we had a problem with out air bed. The toilet facilities are spotless. In terms of location, we were really pleased. As we are not able to use our camper van when pitched up, we needed to rely on public transport or walk. The bus stop was about 5mins walk from the campsite and had regular busses, which allowed us to explore Porthmadog and Portmeirion. Bus services were dog friendly and there was lots of dog friendly cafes and outdoor pubs in Porthmadog too! Unfortunately we were not able to go into the Portmeirion site- it is NOT dog friendly. We were not made aware of this before hand, so just a heads up for any dog owners. We enjoyed walks directly from the site and a meal in the Bryn Arms- it was delicious! We would defiently return to this site. Thanks for a lovely stay!

Poor Refuse Facilities

Coed-Y-Llwyn Club Campsite
CAMC has decided to remove all bins off site apart from those by the main entrance, resulting in a long hike with rubbish across site numerous times during a stay, as we all tend to have small bins. They quote the usual excuses of health & safety, which is ridiculous as there hasn't been a problem for at least the last 20 years. They keep taking away & not giving back. I suspect most of the people at higher levels making these kind of decisions are not caravaners / motorhomers.

Another great stay at Coed-Y-Llwyn

Coed-Y-Llwyn Club Campsite
We stayed 4 nights from the season opener on 11 March. A friendly welcome from new wardens, and we found the site to be meticulously clean and tidy. Nice pub over the road (Bryn Arms) which is reasonably priced and has been upgraded since our last visit a few years ago... what a great asset so close to site. We walked to the cafe at Trawsfynydd which served a tasty snack lunch. We also enjoyed a walk from Porthmadog to Borth-Y-Gest. Overall a great site to stay on as we have always found it to be. thankyou.
