Set on the banks of the river Gwyrfai at the foot of Mount Snowdon, Bryn Gloch is an award-winning site with breathtaking views.
If you're looking for somewhere to stay on your camping, motorhome and caravan holidays in Wales, stay at Bryn Gloch Caravan Park in Snowdonia.
What, at first glance, might seem to be a campsite that offers too many facilities to be a tranquil haven, in fact it offers all you need (and more) for a comfortable stay, while managing to retain a sense of isolation and peace.
Bryn Gloch accommodates motorhomes, caravans, trailer tents and tents, with 10-amp electric hook-ups, and if you're looking for holiday accommodation in North Wales, this campsite also has static caravans (sleeps up to 6) for hire or to buy. Seasonal pitches are available for touring caravans. It is also a dog-friendly campsite with a designated dog walking area, although dogs must be kept on leads at all times.
When the Caravan Sitefinder team visited, they were warmly welcomed by the owners, despite arriving a little later than planned and finding the reception area closed, before being pointed towards a hardstanding superpitch which was not only perfectly level but also offered amazing views of the surrounding mountains.
A stroll around the site revealed that many pitches were taken by those with a seasonal pitch, but all vans were smart and well presented and these pitches were away from the touring field, which meant you didn’t end up being pitched alongside empty vans – a nice touch. There are also extensive, well kept grass pitches.
As mentioned, this site really does have everything you could want from a good laundry room to a children's play area, mini-golf, a games room and a fully stocked shop, but all of this is situated close enough to be easy to reach, yet out of sight enough to make you feel you are on a much smaller site when on your pitch. That is to be commended, and while some of the buildings are a little old and not the most cutting edge, it is all perfectly serviceable. Want more? Well how about fishing on the river for trout or a walk in the site's own 10-acre nature area? And if you want to stay online, there is free Wi-Fi – the list is endless.
There are a good number of toilets and showers which were warm and clean – and you can even have a bath in the family bathroom if your muscles are aching from mountain climbing. Prefer to use your own facilities? The water taps and waste points are plentiful and easy to reach, for caravans and motorhomes alike. There is a toilet and a shower room for disabled visitors, too.
If you don't want to cook, you could enjoy a takeaway from the local (award winning) Indian restaurant. There's also a local pub within a mile and many local towns are only a short drive away if you fancy more choice. To work all that off there are many mountain walks close to the site and Snowdon is only a short drive away too.
Did we like it here? Yes, so much we stayed an extra (unplanned) night and we plan to go back again very soon. Recommended.

Recently returned from a weekend at Bryn Gloch. A great site. Toilet/shower facilities were spotless, clean and modern. A credit to the owners. The site itself is fairly big with fields dedicated to statics, tourers and tents. Ideally situated next to a stream with what looked like a fab barbecue area. We will definately return to take advantage of the facilities when the weather warms up. There is a launderette, games room and small shop on site. There is a mention of golf course but my advice is dont get your hopes up it looks like it is non existent. All in all site great, location great. Well recommended.
