Why stay here ...

Min Y Don Club Site is ideally situated on stunning landscaped land between the coast road and the beach, set against a backdrop formed by Snowdon and the intimidating mountain range. The views of the mountainous terrain, sand dunes and floodlit 13th century World Heritage Castle are breathtaking. A short walk from the caravan park will take you into Harlech past the railway station, where you can enjoy quaint pubs, tasty restaurants and shops set within this historic town. You will also find a heated indoor swimming pool, gymnasium, sauna, tennis court and theatre. If you want to venture further, the site is conveniently located to the main train line to Pwllheli, Criccieth, Barmouth and Aberdovey.

Set within the Snowdonia National Park, Min y Don Club Site is ideal for the beach, walking, climbing, golf, fishing and cycling. A short walk from the caravan site, via the pathway across the adjoining famous Royal St David's Golf Course, affords an easy approach to the 3 miles of soft sandy beach which offers safe bathing for all ages.

Gem of a site

This is an absolute Gem of a site! Just come back from a brilliant week here, was so good we stayed an extra night! Had read mixed reviews from last year and let me say so glad I didn't take any notice as we would have missed out!. We have been to many, many sites and this is without doubt one of the best. The bathrooms, showers & utility rooms are immaculate, modern and spotless, definitely 5 star. The pitches are spacious and well laid out with gorgeous views of Harlech Castle and the whole site is really well maintained. Great play area/park for kids. You have the beautiful beach (stunning sunsets to be seen from here) 5 minutes’ walk one way and 5 minutes the other way a well-stocked mini supermarket. Another bonus is its a great hub to visit all the fantastic places Gwynedd has to offer, Snowdonia national park, Ffestiniog Railway and all the other fab beaches along the coast. The new management Kayleigh and her team do a brilliant job and welcome you with a smile, they all go above and beyond to help you and the site is a credit to them all. We will definitely be back next year!.

Super break - but nearly cancelled!

Having just returned from a most pleasant first stay at this site, a holiday we nearly cancelled! Let me explain, having booked our stay I revisited the site details and read some very negative reviews, which made us think we had made a dreadful mistake. But fortunately some very good reviews suggested we would like Min Y Don after all, so we stuck with our booking. After a very pleasant booking in procedure by welcoming and friendly staff, you drive through a holiday park area before arriving at the touring site. This holiday park area is first class and the grounds are immaculate. The touring area is laid out in a series of cul-de-sacs, but as you have been allocated a pitch, this is not a problem. Between each pitch is 5 meters of grass plus hard standing (very sad - I measured it!) equal to if not greater than some club sites. One review suggested it is not really a fully serviced site as the service water points are the wrong side of the caravan and at some distance. Not a problem - I invested £38.00 on a water extension pipe. Arriving at your pitch, you are required to park the off side caravan corner next to the service point bollard, just as you would with the club pegs. The service point bollards - water/electricity and waste were perfect, well designed and worth copying, and surprise - right next to my caravan, any one want an extension pipe!! The toilet block is huge, immaculate with fresh flowers (in the gents) and spotless. A good design idea - these large blocks can be divided in two equal longitudinal parts for cleaning or reduced usage times - so no closure for cleaning. The Elsan emptying room was a revelation - stainless steel work station, spray head,wash hand basin, hand towels, soap and spotlessly clean. Now there were some down sides, one was the drive from the South through Barmouth - this was a bit hairy with the caravan. Shopping was interesting - two small but well stocked convenience shops locally with the nearest supermarket 10 miles or 20 minutes away - and this superstore was let's say interesting! And finally after checking every touring pitch, I did find some with shared service bollards (2 vans per bollard) where longer service leads/pipes would be required. This affected 22 pitches out of the 100 pitches available.These were at the very end of the site next to the dog walking area - so avoid these if you have not got long enough supply leads. Anyway - would we come again - definitely!

Lovely site

Lovely site, all motorhome amenities. Ehu, water, disposal. But nothing else. Not worth the price paid.

Would not recommend

Great location, close to the beach, beautiful views of the castle. However I would not recommend the site. On a positive note the site is immaculate and although only one shower block the facilities at the block are excellent. The water tap is the other side of the caravan which does not reach which is not ideal and only one chemical waste point for the site, therefore not really fully serviced site. The whole site is very regimental from the rows of caravans, the dog walk ( a small field in a circle ) and patronising rule book full of rules and regulations which are not required at other successfully run sites. Another gripe I have is the swipe system in place requiring a £10 deposit, I understand this is to ensure the return of the card and the budget required to replace these and for maintaining the system, I left my card in the shower block on day one of arrival and was informed I was to forfeit my £10, come on Min - Y - Don I am sure you could honour the odd genuine lost card £10 due to the high nightly fee you receive to ensure good customer satisfaction. I do not complain lightly but Love2stay / Min - Y Don need to take some of the constructive criticism on board to encourage the return of content customers.
