We'll be back

Many of the CLs that once existed around Aberdaron are now large commercial sites. This CL, like many in the area, has more than 5 pitches. There are 9 pitches. The most in use when we were there was 6. The CL is large enough to accommodate all the outfits. Access is straight forward if you follow the instructions. Don’t be tempted to approach from another direction because you won’t be able to turn into the site entrance. Each pitch has water tap, grey water grid and rubbish bin. Recycling is near the entrance. The CL is level. All pitches are grass. We stayed at the end of the season when there were some bald patches in the grass from use of awnings over the summer. We were able to site the van avoiding bare earth. We had rain (this is Wales after all) yet the ground remained firm. I can’t comment on the site’s toilet/shower because we only use our own facilities. Fabulous views in all directions. We pitched facing the Irish sea and could actually sea Ireland at times. We also had views the opposite direction of Snowdonia in the far distance. The CL sits on a network of minor country roads: great for cycling. A NCN route goes past the CL entrance. But it is walking the CL excels at. There’s a footpath less than 150 metres from the CL that leads to the Wales Coastal Footpath. From there about 25 minutes will get you to the top of Anelog mountain with views right the way down the Welsh coast to the south, to Anglesey to the north, Ireland to the west and Snowdonia to the east. CL sits on a junction. Roads are quiet and most of the traffic when we were there was agricultural. Aberdaron village and beach is 1.5 miles by road, which is a 25 minute walk along the country lanes, or you can take the coastal footpath right round the end of the headland (that would take some hours). What a beach. But if 1.5 miles is too far, then how about Whistling Sands at 1 mile in the opposite direction? Could there be a more perfect beach? Dog owners: 1 April to 30 September dogs are banned from Whistling Sands and part of Aberdaron beach. Several of the carparks in the area are run by the National Trust and are free to members: such as the carparks at Aberdaron and Whistling Sands. We’ll definitely be back.
