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.

Beautiful site but

Coed-Y-Llwyn Club Campsite
stayed here for a week in June .The site is well situated to explore north wales it is very clean and the staff was excellent and couldn't do enough to help BUT the facility's Ie the showers was atrocious although they was spotlessly cleaned they are unfit for purpose there isn't anywhere to put tour cloths when showering except a plastic stool ,there is no shower curtain in between the shower and the part you get dressed so the floor is flooded and it is impossible to get dressed without getting your cloths wet .the other complaint is why no bins by the water stations you have to walk up to the office to find a bin.would i stay again yes but would like to see some changes

Couldn't be happier with this site

Coed-Y-Llwyn Club Campsite
From the get go this place made Our Holiday Great from the Beginning... The weather may have helped as it was Glorious everyday & we seemed to have pitched up in a sun trap area which was great in the evenings To eat & chill alfresco. The Staff where all very friendly & accommodating especially Ian With Great knowledge of The surrounding areas any many other places around Wales. Thanks Ian The site was very clean and Tidy including all amenities. Lots of water/waste stations in close walking distance & very well maintained grassyareas. The only downside We found was the dog walking area on site is very small but saying that We walked our dogs off site everyday so wasn't a problem. We will definitely be back as there is so much to do around the surrounding areas & didn't have time in the 10 days we were there to do it all All in all A great stay Thank You

Fantastic

Coed-Y-Llwyn Club Campsite
Don’t know where to start but this site was fantastic. Arrived at 7.30pm to friendly happy wardens, told us which pitches were available and which would be best for our twin axle., explained layout/ where facilities were etc on site. All five wardens were extremely helpful and friendly at all times, never come across a more helpful team. Facilities were clean and tidy as was the site. Lots of comings and goings with people staying for one or two nights but extremely well managed and a lovely peaceful site. Walk to the waterfall us a must as is a visit to the Bryan Arms across the road. It was definitely worth the drive from Cornwall and we’ll definitely be back.

Real gem of a site

Coed-Y-Llwyn Club Campsite
Arrived and the staff were really friendly. Chatted for a while and then found a beautiful pitch. Really level. Went for a meal in the local pub which was really good value and literally across the road from the entrance to the site with a big beer garden and dog-friendly. Site has access to a circular walk to Trawsfynydd - didn't do it this time but have done it before and it is well worth doing. We walked out from the site and to a waterfall which was beautiful - only saw a handful of people all day. Facilities were good and clean and the site was really well presented. We will definitely use again - great if you are coming up from South Wales or down from the North as a stopover or extend you stay for access to the amazing scenery and activities that are in Snowdonia. Bendigedig!
