Stayed a few years ago when we had a tent, but great location, yes adjacent to a railway line but you get used to them.

Very clean site, great shower blocks.

 

The beach is very easily accessible, walk over the railway line and then you are on the prom.

 

The site is a 15-20 minute stroll to Barmouth itself.

 

The only slight downside is the access road from the main road, there's a bit of a large sweep around from the main road then a really steep descent to the site, if that makes sense.

We went last year for a week, and as mentioned previously the site is pretty reasonable.

There is a "Tight" drive through the town to access the site - big rigs beware !

There are some houses between the site and th prom/beach, and someone left a dog in one house and it barked incessantly every day from 6 in the morning until 2. 30pm in the afternoon.

It got to stage where we dreaded the first bark.

The site owners went around to the house but nothing could be done.

They even called the RSPCA, but as the animal wasn't ill treated or in distress, zilch action !

Bearing in mind that we are 50/60's, "Empty nesters" and like quiet holidays, we found it was a nice little town, and a decent site,but not much to do in either.

I don't think we'd bother going again.

Thanks Sharon :D

 

Think I'll book a week now.

Stayed in Duffryn Ardwady-just up the coast from Barmouth-a few years ago and enjoyed it.

 

Hope the rain stays away!

Col - There's a good road approaching the town, and you think "Hey, this is ok", then you go around a corner and the road reduces in width pretty drastically and becomes a bit winding.

 

If I recall, it's only for a few 100 yards, and it's ok with care for average size vans (Depending on parked cars and traffic coming towards you).

We were fine with a 17 footer, but you'll need to watch out if you have a 23 footer !

Let's say it's one of those situations that when your passed it you realise you've been sticking your jaw out and chewing fresh air !!

 

All this is assuming your coming in from the direction of Dolgellau.

 

Once through the town keep a sharp eye out for the site sign on the left as it comes up pretty quickly.

You'll need a good swing into the entrance because just inside the entrance the road takes an acute left sweep down a steep hill with Reception Office at the bottom.

They do WiFi at a price if you want to take your laptop.

Hope you enoy your stay.

We stayed there 2 years ago. .it was a lovely clean site and the owners are very friendly and helpful.

 

Our pitch was nice and private with hedges inbetween yours and your neighbours pitch. .the toilets and showers were nice and clean at all times. ..

 

There was a good little shop onsite and also a cafe/takeaway. ..

 

It is a small walk through to the beach. .across the railway track. .but trains dont run all that often. .so they certainly dont disturb you. .and they are not far from Barmouth station. .so theyre not speedin by. ..

 

The town was nice to have a walk around. .but we did struggle with things to do at night. .all the restaurants seemed to close by 9ish. ..

 

Marks sister has a house on the hillside overlookin the sea. ...and the views are amazin. ..

 

The harbour is nice. .we went crabbing and mark also caught a mullet on a small rod . ...which apparently accordin to the locals. .doesnt happen very often. .so ofcourse he was chuffed. ..
