A vast panorama of Snowdonia awaits visitors to this corner of Wales. From the beach the scenery is spectacular, with majestic mountains, rolling sheep-dotted hills, forests and winding rivers. Looking back from the hills the Llyn Peninsula is stunning, its sheltered bays and wide sandy beaches are perfect for Bathing and Watersports. The town of Criccieth has beautiful Beaches overlooked by a picturesque Castle, a wonderful sight when silhouetted by the sunset.
Also nearby, Borth-Y-Gest has a quaint bay, backed by dramatic scenery, with some wonderful coastal walks. Whether viewed from the window of the Ffestiniog Railway steam train, by car, on foot or on horseback, the beauty of the landscape is breathtaking. Alternatively, some visitors like to relax sea or river fishing, playing golf, or quad biking, all available locally.

Brilliant position for the beach, which is about a 10 - 15 minute walk, and good base for sight seeing in local area, near some fabulous beaches.
However these are all the positive things I can say about this site.
We were in a motor home, and if you've read the review above (I wish we had before we booked), you will appreciate this was not a good site for us.
We had the pitch furthest away from the kids play area, which is not far at all. All the touring pitches are around the play area and are not separated in any way by a fence etc so just merge into the play area. The site rules state keep the noise down after 10pm... and that is just what the kids did..... but this meant they were shouting, screaming, running between the caravans etc until that point and the touring pitches became part of the play area. Getting a baby and a pre schooler to sleep was impossible, and we were far from relaxed. After 10pm the older kids then roamed around in a pack. One came so close to our wind break where we were sat that he knocked on it as passed... to which we politely, and not aggressively asked him to "be more careful"..... in the morning one of our guy ropes had been cut!!! The static caravan kids all congregate around the play area in the evening which is well away from the static pitches, a total nightmare. We won't be returning and cannot recommend this site to tourers. A shame really because the management are extremely good and efficient, and the location is great. Very disappointing.
