Camping and Bunkhouses On The Edge Of Snowdonia
We have two camping fields. These are grassland meadows which border the banks of the river Seiont (that flows from Llyn Padarn down to the sea at Caernarfon Castle).
We try to keep the land pretty wild, and managed primarily for biodiversity, so the pitches are kept cut and grazed and are surrounded by uncut grassland which, at certain times, is full of flowers.
Usually we graze the fields alternately with three laid-back horses from the local vegetable farm, but when were busy, or for really large groups, or events, we move the animals to another enclosure and use both fields. So, we have pretty unlimited space for camping.
We have limited electric hook-ups (just two) for camper-vans, and you need to book these if required.
One field is fenced off from the river, and is probably more suitable for young children – but the larger field is bordered by the river. If you’re into wild swimming there is a large deep pool, and there is some good wildlife to be seen. Early rising (pretty much dawn!!) is frequently rewarded by watching the otters fishing.
The fields have a panoramic view of the mountains – from the Carneddau range, round to Elidir and Llanberis pass, Snowdon itself, and round to Moel Elio.
We don’t allow fires on the grass itself, but you are welcome to have raised fires and barbeques.
We allow dogs, but only well-behaved ones. That means under control, quiet, and ones that leave no trace behind!!! We have horses and sheep and we will enforce this.
This is not a party campsite (unless block-booked for this reason) and we ask people not to use soundsystems etc – it’s for people, and us, to enjoy some peace.
The washroom facilities are simple but good quality. Two toilets and two showers in the same block about 100 metres from the campfields along the track. There is also an outdoor (but undercover) washing-up sink.
