This review is for Beddgelert - Snowdonia

Site in a lovely area in Snowdonia, roads towards the site can be a bit of a challange with a twin axle but taken with care not a problem. On arrival booking process simple told to choose any pitch of the type booked, wardens friendly and helpful, facilities clean and even though over easter and site was full no issues having shower etc. Lots to do in the area, nice walk/ride into Baddgelert, Caernarfon well worth a visit. To sum up, nice site in the forest, well worth the visit, will be back! P.S. no mobile or tv reception (heaven).

I have visited this site for many years as a tent camper. Now using a motorhome. The current management is first rate, the best I have seen. Nothing is too much trouble, the shop prices are cheaper than the local village. The facilities are spotlessly maintained. all with friendly advice and greetings. All this with walks and cycle tracks off the site make it first rate. Bugs can be a nuisance mid summer but well worth putting up with, fight back with bug juice, candles etc from the shop.

Second time of visit, staff very helpful and pleasant, Journey to site OK until about three miles out and then roads became twisty and narrow (would suggest come in via Caernarfon). Site not particularly level and tracks to pitches do have potholes. Overall we would visit again

When we arrived the staff were friendly and helpful, and showed us a map of site and where we could pitch our caravan. It was the August Bank Holiday Weekend, so the campsite was busy and there were not many pitches left. You are not allocated a pitch or able to reserve one and we felt it would be a vast improvement if you could, especially as we were in a group and could not pitch together. The pitch we ended up with was on a slope, and could only just accommodate our caravan and awning. There was no room to sit outside. The pitches are also quite close together and when the site is full, it felt overcrowded. Overall I would stay at this site again, as it has lovely views and the Welsh Highland Railway Steam Trains stop at the site. I would however, definitely book a superior pitch, with a picnic table and not stay on one of the busiest weekends of the year. One last critic, the shop was not very well stocked and the addition of locally sourced bacon and sausages would be very welcome. Though the bakery is excellent and I can thoroughly recommend chocolate croissants.
