Showers are communial you will change in front of all using toilet/ shower block. Cleanliness is poor , pot washing area in not lit at night and has poor water pressure. Childrens play area is poor and not used by children who tend to play in roadway or between pitches. Warden is approachable but partner is rude and intimidating .Would not visit again as for money i would expect higher standards of cleanliness and warm welcome

We came for the weekend and the weather stayed pretty nice for us. I camped out in the tent and found the facilities good and clean although were closed at bad times. For the price there wasn't much. A very small shop that was almost always closed and a kids park, other than that there was nothing. Everything was alright. The only reason I am giving this camp site a low mark is because of the site manger who was incredibly rude! I would not use this campsite again due to him working there.

My family and I have visited Gwel Y Mor for the past 4 years every May and August Bank Holidays.
We love this site it's always clean and tidy, a short walk / cycle to some stunning beaches and within walking distance to Abersoch village.
The site managers Jackie and Jimmy have always been fantastic, a credit to the site.

A busy site with limited space, 15 mins to beach, although be careful with young ones as you have to walk approx 200 metres along a busy road with no footpath. Abersoch approx 1/2hr walk. A lot of seasonal caravans and popular with those that enjoy water sports. Toilet block not big enough to cope with the demand at peak times. Kids play area OK. Big let down for us was the poor, unreasonable attitude of the manager. Prices are high and compared to other sites that charge similar, Gwel y mor is poor! We won't be going back.

What a lovely place. I found it to be very relaxing even though it was very busy. The facillities were outstanding. Jacquie worked very hard to keep them nice. Both Jimmy and Jacqui were very helpful and i would strongly recommend anybody visiting this site.
Both my children love it there and we will certainly make it our regular weekend get away. In the words of fred flintstone i would say we had a yabadabadoo time.

being a regular visitor to Abersoch, i know the area well, i think that the loacation of the sight is marvelous, its in walking location of the beach and Abersoch village, i think all the people there are very friendly and kind.

i think the toilets could be abit more nicer and cleaner, and the fact the us women have to walk around the back at night is highly dangerous and a bit freaky! and they spend FAR too long cleaning the toilets, 2 hours! it should only take half a hour! but the toilets are a nice big sizeand there in good distance.

i think the playarea is great for the youngsters, however i belive there could be abit more entertainment for the teenagers, for instance, a games room or treehouse or something alkie that, just so the can hang out there instead of having to go in at night so early!

i think the shop is marvelous my children enjoyed piking at the sweets from such reasonable prices!

the weather was great when i went down and we were extremely hot but we couldnt go in the sea because it was too rough and with a 1 year old baby= abit dangerous, so it would have been very nice to have a swimming pool tto have a splash about in.

I have a regular visitor to the Llyn peninsular for over 20 years, having both good and bad experiences on many of the sites that the area has to offer. I feel obliged to add a comment about my recent stay at Gwel Y Mor. My familly and I have had a great week, I have a 13 year old daughter and a 15 year old son and both have thoroughly enjoyed themselves, (like all camping holidays if the kids are happy I am happy) The site manager and his wife are very helpful and absolutlely nothing is to much trouble. The review of Squishy1710 is so far off the mark it is needs to rectified. I hope my comments go some way to redress the balance. Gwel Y Mor is a top site and my familly and I will be back very shortly.

This site could be quite nice with separate camping field and touring caravan areas. The facilities are nice and there is a small shop. Although the caravan pitches are crammed together. This site is completely and utterly let down by the behavior of the wardens. They were rude to the point of being aggressive. It is heavily geared towards permanent pitches.

We recently stayed at Gwel y mor over Easter we were a little apprehensive as we had booked before we had read the previous review.

We had nothing to worry about, the site is now family run and the managers Jimmy & Jacky were very helpfull & friendly.

The toilet block has recently been refurbished and was kept immaculate at all times.

There is a very good childrens park and the office/shop was well stocked with quality but afordable games and toys, our kids had a great time.

If you want an onsite fish & chip shop, bar or an amusement arcade this is NOT the site for you.

I would reccomend this site to anyone who wants a well run beautifull site in a fabulous location.

I have heard good things about this caravan site and expected to have an enjoyable time, however this was not the case!

On arriving I found the caravans to be tightly packed into a small field, even though there was a larger camping field next door that only had 2 tents pitched.

I then proceeded to check out the facilities and talk to the site owner. The facilities had a number lock on the door which I felt was extremely excessive, especially when trying to take a 5 year old who is bursting for the toilet to use them. Knowing that the facilities were kept locked I expected them to have been of the highest standard... again this wasn't the case. They were shut for 3 hours during the afternoon, God forbid the children need the toilet between these hours! And to top it off there wasn't even an electric source for the hairdryer so we all had to walk around with wet hair all morning.

I know that you don't go camping and caravaning for the luxuries, but when your paying that amount and there's a number combination lock on the door, you expect a bit extra then just a toilet and a shower.

On talking to the site owner I found him to be arrogant and obnoxious, he obviously valued the money he was making from the caravaners and campers than the people themselves.

Obviously not everyone gets on with each but you act civil during the few minutes a day you see each other, however when people act uncivil and obnoxious towards my children I do not appreciate it and I shall not be returning.

Over all my family and I tried to spend as much time away from the site as possible, and made our holiday by spending time in the beautiful town of abersoch.

I would highly recommend visiting abersoch, it is a very scenic place, very family orientated and has plenty of entertainment; I would not however recommend visiting this site to anyone with children.
