Make award-winning Tyddyn Du Touring Park your base for caravan and camping holidays in North Wales and you'll discover a quiet adults-only campsite with beautiful sea views.

Tyddyn Du is so popular with readers of Practical Caravan, Practical Motorhome and Caravan Sitefinder that it regularly makes it into our Top 100 Sites Awards listings – you frequently tell us just how much you love it.

Situated on the North Wales coast, this pretty campsite offers tremendous panoramic views of the sea. It looks out across towards the Isle of Anglesey and Puffin Island in the west and the Great Orme, Llandudno's famous landmark, in the east. You'll be able to enjoy some epic sunsets and walkers will also appreciate the site's proximity to the gorgeous Snowdonia National Park.

This peaceful and informal site nestles at the foot of the Carneddau Mountains on the North Wales coast and owner Pam Watson-Jones is pleased to welcome caravans, motorhomes, trailer tents and tents. She also has one Willerby Granada static holiday caravan for hire, in a small six-van site, which sleeps two adults in comfort.

For disabled customers there are quite a few helpful touches to mention. The disabled facilities, which have grab handles, are located in the main foyer of the toilet and shower block and are accessed by means of a radar key. Assistance dogs are permitted in the disabled facilities. All pitches on the park have a car parking space alongside the pitch. There is a disabled parking bay at the toilet block with block paving ramp access to the toilet and laundry facilities and also the disposal point. There are two steps to the reception cabin but staff are happy to assist with booking in and will assist with siting the caravans if necessary. There's even a magnifying glass in reception, to help with signing in.

Public transport is available close to the site entrance and is a good service to all towns along the coast and inland. Most services are normally operated by easy access low floor buses. Local taxis are also available .

The park is close to the A55 dual carriageway so it's easy to access, but don't enter the site's postcode into your sat-nav – it won't take you to the entrance. Leave the A55 dual carriageway at junction 16, the roundabout signposted to Penmaenmawr. Turn immediately sharp left into Ysguborwen Road and the entrance to the site is about 300 yards on the right after the Gladstone pub.

Tyddyn Du makes an ideal base from which to explore the castles, beaches and mountains of North Wales. Why not take a fifteen minute drive to Llandudno, 'the Queen of Welsh Resorts', or to Conwy's World Heritage Site?

For anyone who loves walking, mountaineering, cycling, wildlife or landscape photography, climbing or horse riding, North Wales offers many opportunities for adventure. The Isle of Anglesey and the Snowdonia National Park are both Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and are havens for wildlife. North Wales is the perfect destination for people wanting to cast off the cares of work, cities and towns and enjoy the unspoilt mountains, rivers and sea. Lake Bala is not far from Tyddyn Du campsite, and offers water sports and level walks around the shores of this beautiful lake.

Welsh campsites always score well in our Top 100 listings, and in 2014 12 Welsh parks made it through to the finals, most of them in North Wales. Tyddyn Du has scored highly year after year.

In the 2014 Top 100 Sites Awards booklet we quote some of the lovely comments readers wrote on their forms when voting for Tyddyn Du as their favourite campsite in the UK. Here are some of their words.

The first reader wrote: "We liked the cleanliness of this site, there were also very helpful staff. The grounds were kept in immaculate condition. There are excellent recycling facilities on site, too."

Another camper said: "The shower block is very impressive, with plenty of hot water. Best of all, there were no children running around, so it's very peaceful. There are gorgeous views of the sea."

But the last word goes to the third reader, who said: "We like the location and accessibility to tourist attractions. It's always a shame to leave Tyddyn Du Touring Park."

This site is beautifully kept, has stunning views and it is impeccably clean, however, although it claims to be a “Tranquil” (Meaning Quiet) and charges Tranquil Site prices for the privilege, it is not Tranquil, it is situated right next door to a school, nowhere does it mention on the site details that there is a school, so please take this in mind if you decide to visit this site, you have to be aware of the screaming of children in the playground that carries across the site every day for most of the day, We booked this site for Ten days but left after Two, If we had wanted this level of noise, we would have booked into a Haven Holiday Park and it would have been less expensive, We have been caravanning for 23 years, and tried most of the sites under the “Tranquil” Banner, this is the first site that we have ever upped and left because of the noise, We did have communication to the park management, but after the first email, they stopped replying, despite two further emails from myself. As mentioned, The site is Beautiful, it is impeccably kept and it has the most beautiful views, the ONLY downside is the noise from the school.

I booked a pitch at this site for 14 nights as I had seen Tyddyn Du's web page and it seemed to offer everything that I wanted.
When we arrived at the main entrance we were greeted by the owner Pam. We duly paid our fee's and we were advised how to get to our pitch. Pam also advised us where to obtain water and where all of the other site facilities were located.
As soon as I stopped by the allocated area two of the site staff unhitched our caravan and placed it on the hardstanding in such a way that the main window overlooked the bay. The view extends from the Great Orme right across to Anglesey.
After getting everything set up we decided to have a look at where the remaining facilities were.
The toilets were spotlessly clean etc. A small cloth was left by each sink for you to kindly wipe away any excess water or soap. In each shower is a squeegee again to soak up excess water.
Around the rear of the toilet block is the washing up room with 2 sinks, a washing machine, a spinner, tumble dryer and an iron.
At the entrance to the toilet block is where the local visitor attraction leaflets are on display and books for you to borrow.
We enjoyed our break so much we booked to return 8 weeks later in October.

Third time visiting this adult only caravan site and loved every minute of it. Spectacular views 360 degrees. Lovely site owner Pam and staff. Would recommend it to all great facilities too :)Make sure if you have an awning you have a storm strap as can get very windy!!

Very nice site, cannot fault the views, from the tiered pitch's. The toilet block is outstanding, clean and very modern. The only problem we found was the 2.0pm book in, we arrived at 10.00am and were told we would have to leave the van on the car park, until 2.0pm. (the car park was a large field)The site was not too busy, and we could have easily been given a vacant pitch, We did ask could we go on but the old lady attending the office said it was a strict 2.0pm rule as she and Pam have to have their lunch. That said the location was second to none and handy for everything. I did like the sign on the gate "No Children beyond this Point" Adults only Site.
