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.

It's like Marmite - you'll love it or hate it! We hated it!

Min y Don Caravan Club Site
We didn't read the previous reviews but went on the recommendation of someone who loved it, as it had what they needed - a good shower block, good disabled facilities and access, and they went during a quiet period. We hated it! Caravans were in regimented rows, very close together. On our first weekend we realised we were camped behind the family from hell with no volume controls. Even worse, we realised when they left, and as we breathed a sigh of relief, that they had a seasonal pitch - and next week was half term! Thankfully they didn't come back until the next weekend, and then we were treated to a disco with loud music and flashing lights, and lots of yelling. We rang the office with no reply, and were informed the next day that we should have made the long walk at night to the office as the emergency number is on the door. As we had been in bed, we had referred to the rules book issued on arrival, and it would be helpful if the emergency number was in here. Clearly the rule about noise and unruly behaviour was ignored! However, the staff did speak to the family, but as they were staying, we took the decision to leave a day earlier than planned. On the plus side, the shower block is excellent, lots of them and very clean, and the site is well maintained. Excellent laundry facilities, not too expensive. The wifi however, is absolutely abysmal and don't even think about paying extra. It's not secure, even with a code, and it's better to find somewhere else if you need this, like the local pub. Harlech fish and chip shop was excellent with huge portions. Places to visit - Llanfair Slate Caverns was excellent, a lot bigger than we'd thought and very interesting. Harlech Beach is lovely but we liked Llandanwrg beach next door, with the beautiful St Tarwgs Church - oldest gravestone we found was 1699!! Borth y Gest and Barmouth are nice, and we had some trips on the Welsh Highland Railway, which was excellent. To be fair, the staff at this site were very pleasant and did refund our payment for the terrible wifi and 2 nights for the neighbours from hell. Would we return? NO! We felt it was overpriced and whilst there is a discount for staying off peak and for more than few nights, it's really not our sort of place at all!

The perfect campsite

Min y Don Caravan Club Site
As another reviewer put i nearly cancelled after looking at some older reviews and am so pleased i didn't,it is a great site with friendly wardens,well laid out and maintained and probably the best facility block i have ever seen - always spotlessly clean,my only point would be that if your pitch is at the far end of the site it is a fair walk to the showers but i am sure they will accommodate you with the pitch if they can,this is how all campsites should be.

Superb site, clean and friendly, perfect location for many days out

Min y Don Caravan Club Site
One of the best sites we have ever stayed at, we spent two wonderful weeks in August 2020. The owners and staff are incredibly friendly and welcoming, all pitches are fully serviced, facilities immaculate and plentiful. Excellent washrooms, showers and laundry facilities. There is no shop on site, but a small supermarket is just down the road and the beautiful town of Harlech a mile away. The location is perfect for days out to suit any taste, from Mount Snowdon to Portmeirion, the Ffestiniog Railway, Europe's longest zipline in Blaenau Ffestiniog, or a relaxing bike ride along a disused railway, the Mawddach trail. The beach is 1/2 mile from the campsite and on stormy nights you can hear the sea. The sunsets are second to none, who needs TV if you can sit in the sand dunes and watch the most beautiful sunsets you will ever see? On clear days, we could see Mount Snowdon from our pitch, what more could anyone ask for? We will definitely return.

Shower heaven

Min y Don Caravan Club Site
Without a doubt the shower blocks at Min-Y-Don are some of the best we have ever seen, each cubicle is spacious as are the WCs. The block is modern, spotlessly clean and always at a very comfortable temperature. We were there during COVID and the set up for social distancing was excellent. The pitches are spacious and fully serviced and well laid out. Harlech castle can be seen from your pitch and is but a short walk from the site, as isthe beach. We were there out of season so very few children, I would guess it may be extremely busy during the summer school holidays. Well worth a visit

Gem of a site

Min y Don Caravan Club 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!.
