Pleasant enough

August 2020 Pleasant enough peaceful & popular CL site with mainly open views. 4 up-market Holiday letting properties adjoin etc were busy and kept Warden active, but caused no issues to us. All 5 pitches had good points and were well spread out to spacious site. Heavy rain had caused some soft ground to site and to some pitches, Grass had an overdue cut during our stay ! The allotment Garden was overgrown and un-tended. Quirky 'loo' with sea view, solo shower next to pool was good & warm (just a £1). Swimming pool (extra cost) was fine but 2020 CV19 access issues part restricted multiple use. Beach 500m to front had no easy access due to coastal Train line between but a handy & popular mini station along lane towards Tywyn has a level crossing to get onto the mainly pebble beach. Area very scenic & clearly Holiday bias - a car helps greatly for longer stays. Fairburn peninsula (7 miles) with mainly sandy beach & dunes area was great for our dogs & walks + had a mini ferry service shortcut over to Barmouth town. Road access towing for us from East / via Queensferry etc was better in from the Tywyn road as coastal way from north & Barmouth estuary had many very narrow choke points - do check routes & satnav issues. Hope this helps and please review your visits to assist others !

Honest review - Feb 2019

Tranquil site on beautiful part of the Welsh coast. (Twywn is worth avoiding but Aberdovey is really nice.) Contacting site was difficult - let msg, never rang back as I just wanted to know if any pitches would be better access for a motorhome in Winter as it's all grass and some sloping. Booked and paid deposit on-line only to find all pitches full when I arrived. Ended up on plot with no hookup - which was fine but not what I booked ( did give me a discount for no electric ). Paid for WIFI , which I needed for work but completely unreliable - don't waste your money - other sites facilities are good and price is very reasonable. If your walking Coastal path - South is excellent, we walked to Aberdovey and got train back, to the North your not really walking the coast due to the terrain.

Relaxing in peace

We visited this site in the 'heatwave' of early July. It was peaceful and quiet and we loved it. We were there outside of school holidays and the whole area was uncrowded. There is no direct access to a sandy beach within easy walking but parking a mile or so down the road at the railway halt (it was in a large military base in WW2) gives an easy stroll to the boulder and pebble sea side. One possible glitch was that when the cottages had young adults staying in them on the last day, they wanted to use the caravan site area as a football pitch and Graham is not on site all of the time to 'keep an eye' open for the potential balls hitting vans/awnings. We had a dog and a cat with us and they both enjoyed the 'safe freedom' of the site and a tip for dog owners is that whilst Tywyn and its beach is 4 miles away, parking is free and good and both N &S of the promenade are dog accessible beaches of flat sand. If you turn down Idris Villas, near the Spar and go to its end it couldn't be more convenient. Will be back for certain. Lightweight gas refills needed a trip to the same road as the Centre for Alternative Technology about 14 miles away - the main Calor agent - as the Spar outlet says 'lightweight have been discontinued' when they are still available.

Lovely Relaxing Break

We spent 4 days on this site & had a wonderful time. Graham who looks after the site was very friendly, helpful & welcoming & full of useful local knowledge. The scenery was beautiful & the site was lovely, clean & tidy. We will definitely be returning. Thank you Graham for everything. See you soon. Tony, Di & Poppy

A CL with an indoor heated swimming pool!

A CL with an indoor heated swimming pool! You pay extra for the use of the pool but it is a great facility. You share the pool with a few holiday cottages but we had it all to ourselves every day. The site itself is very attractive with views of the sea and the surrounding hills. Turn right out of the gate and go back up the lane a little way and you will find a bridleway that winds alongside the hillside at the rear of the site. The views are spectacular from the Pembrokeshire coast to the south and the Lleyn Peninsular to the north. You can see virtually the whole of Cardigan Bay. We were there in mid September and they had just had a week of heavy rain. A few people had been slipping and churning up the grass in the middle of the field. A heavy motor home could have had some problems. Also the grass had not been cut recently so it took a long time to dry out. But overall, a wonderful place to stay and enjoy this part of mid Wales. We enjoyed a trip on the Tallyllyn Railway and a walk up to Bearded Lake in Happy Valley. We didn’t have our tandem with us or we would have tried the cycle route over the new bridge into Tywyn.

I don't want everyone to know ;)

I loved this site, it ticks everything i want from a CL, great remote views, wonderfully quirky toilet, functioning shower (old £1) the site is well kept with the breathtaking scenery on the drive in that you expect from Wales we had the sea view pitch, which looks picturesquely out over the fields to the sea. an easy 5 minute walk to the beach or the Tonfanau rail station with trains every couple of hours north and south up the coast Also from Tywyn you can catch the quaint steam railway from tywyn Wharf, stopping at Pendre, Dolgoch (beautiful waterfalls), Abergynolwyn (tea and cake) and terminating at Nant gwynol (more waterfalls) Oh and my wonderful partner and me climbed snowdon because we're awesome Adventureneers :)

Peace and quiet NOT

Be aware that owner of cl does not reside in the area and site is run by caretaker/ manager. The house at site is available to rent for up to 17 persons, along with surrounding converted outbuildings. During our stay there was a corporate training course taking place at the house, which included the cl itself being used for various team building exercises by students. On one evening this included an aerial rope way being rigged across part of the site and pyrotechnics being fired across the site from small cannons aimed at targets. We finally decided to leave early after being kept awake until 03.30 Am by revellers in the swimming pool. Not exactly a haven of peace and tranquillity, will certainly not be returning to this site again, worst experience in over 20 years of using Certificated Locations.

Peace and quiet

We have just arrived from a lovely week at this site. We stayed on the sea view pitch was brilliant lovely view. It is only 10 minute walk to beach from site and a ten minute drive to Tywyn can walk or cyckle. Went on the steam train from Tywyn lovely day out nice little cafés in Tywnyn and yes a couple of shops to buy food. We used the pool which was lovely as there was only ever me and wife nice after walking in the hills. Not far from second largest Mountain which we also climbed. Brill week will definatley be back soon

Brilliant site

This site is easy to find, just opposite the large house on the road in. Road is narrow in places. Entrance way may be a bit tight in a larger unit, but we had no problem in a motorhome. Despite no hardstanding and the ground being soft we had no problems, that is we did not get stuck. For £12 a night with electric  and toilet, the site is brilliant. We had a nice welcome from 'Graham' who was very informative. The loo is probably the most original we have seen, whilst there is a door, there is no window, which meant it was always lovely and fresh and had a good view.  There is a swimming pool on site, for which there is a charge. You can cycle out of the site to Tywyn, a town not that picturesque, where there are shops. On the way is a railway station to go to Birmingham (or so it said) Alternatively walk behind the site and trundle up into the hills. This is a site that is at it's best in good weather. We would go again and would recommend it for peace and quiet, it was pitch black at night, with the hoot of owls.
