This is really a lovely site with 5* facilities
We visited 2 years ago and were so impressed we decided to return, 1st time we have ever returned to a site.
The pricing policy has dramatically changed and we paid over double what we did 2 years previous, but having nice memories we decided to return.
We made our reservation approximately 2 months before arrival and gave them our approximate arrival time (6-7pm). Then the afternoon of our arrival I received a phone call from the site giving me instructions of a how to gain entry (code for a security box and where to find our entrance fob etc.) I said I wasn’t able to take the instructions at the time as I was working and could she email/text me them. I was told “oh it doesn’t matter” and hung up.
On arrival (bang on time @ 6:20pm) no one was there to meet us. It was pouring down and we were stood waiting trying to access the gate fob from the security box without luck, thankfully 2 other guests came and spoke to us and one kind chap leant us his fob to get in and find our pitch. About 1.5 hours later the male warden came and knocked and gave us our own fob.
Then the afternoon before we left (we were there for 2 nights) my husband phoned to enquire whether it was critical we left at 11am or could we stay later. The site wasn’t full by any means. We were abruptly told “no” by the female warden, then she said later in the conversation that we could stay later if we paid £8. For our 2 nights it cost £58 (us plus 2 dogs) if we’d stayed for 3 nights it would have been £60.90…….. My mistake should have booked the 3 nights and left at lunch time on day No. 3 (would have only cost us £60.90). The last time we stayed here it was only £12 per night out of season, like this visit was.
I decided to phone the lady back to explain we only wanted another 1 hour max but she said this wasn’t possible and I asked not even for the fact that no-one was here to “site us” on our arrival? No was the response.
Shortly afterwards there was a knock on our caravan door and the lady asked me to “step outside”, I refused. She then said “there was no pleasing me”. Apparently they had been waiting for us, in their uniforms, to phone on arrival (at no time did she ask me to do that, after all we arrived at exactly the time we said we would, when we booked it 2 months earlier). We’re amazed how they couldn’t spot a twin axle caravan trying to gain access.
On a positive note the site is lovely, dog walking area is perfect and the male warden is a very happy chap, always with a smile on his face.
Unfortunately due to the female warden’s customer service we won’t be returning.

This is one of the nicest sites that I have ever had the pleasure of staying at. We spent 6 nights in early July 2011 when the site was not overly busy on a fantastic pitch over looking the sea. The site is maintained to a standard that is 1st class, the toilet blocks are without a doubt the best I have ever seen on any caravan site, the staff were very friendly and helpful (even set up my satellite dish for me!). The weather was supberb for our entire stay and lots of time spent on the beach at nearby Barmouth, a very picturesque seaside town just a short distance away with plenty of great pubs, restaurants cafes etc. A quiet family site which I would recommend without hesitation and which I will definatley book again when next in West Wales.

this is the second time we've visited this site. We stayed for 10 days and thoroughly enjoyed it. The site is on the coast with beautiful views out to sea. The is mainly level with the odd slight slope. It has a well stocked shop, playground suitable for various ages, great dog walk enclosed by stone walls and excellent well kept grounds and toilet block. Although we went at a very busy time the staff were very friendly and the site and its facilites were very clean. The site has various sizes of pitches inc all services pitches. Walking distance to local beach, easy driving distances to lots of places to visit. The local beaches are very clean. Would recommend this site.

This is a first class campsite situated a 10 minute drive from the centre of barmouth with great views out to sea.I would reccomend this site to anyone but especially families as the washrooms are second to none ,they are the cleanest we have found in all our years of camping.
The whole site is spotless and divided up in to nice fields for tents and the tourers are behind in spacious plots.
We will be returning.
