General

  • Family-run park between the mountains and the sea
  • In Snowdonia National Park five miles from Harlech
  • Pitches over 12 acres, with 28 acres of woodland and fields to wander

Bored with being boxed in on a campsite? Space, space and more space is the order of the day at Snowdonia's Barcdy Touring Caravan & Camping Park: it's in a secluded and sheltered vale where you'll have 12 acres' worth of camping area to pitch up in, and then another 28 acres of oak woodland and open fields to wander around and spot the wildlife.

Barcdy is a select (and very friendly) family-run park where the owners have seen generations of small and excited campers go free range among these natural surroundings (there's a play area and wifi on site too, but we reckon the sprogs will prefer to roam). The grounds are a wildlife haven where nature spotters of all sizes can see badgers, owls and migratory birds, and loads more walks can be had in the hills leading off from the site.

There's a good pick of pitches among the 12 acres: grass areas for tents, with optional electric hook-up, and hardstanding, all-weather, fully-serviced pitches for tourers and motorhomes. Amenities are kept in tiptop condition and include plenty of showers and loos, dishwashing sinks and a launderette. Shaver points and hairdryers are available too.

Barcdy doesn't have a shop as it prefers to support local businesses: the nearest places for supplies are Harlech four miles away with food shops and newsagent, and Porthmadog five miles away with an Aldi, Lidl, Tesco and several smaller shops.

Please note

Please note that Barcdy is an extremely quiet park so please don't choose us if you have other ideas.

    Visited from 31/08/18 to 05/09/18, tent pitch, with electric hook-up.
    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely campsite. The owners are very friendly and helpful. On arrival you are given a fact sheet with ALL the information that you need for a great stay. Wi-Fi is free and the 1.5 gigabyte allowance they give you was more than enough for the duration of our stay. We have been to other sites where you have to pay for showers, but at Barcdy the showers are free, with plenty of hot water. The washing up facilities are brilliant and we had no problem at all with using the laundrette. Barcdy campsite is well maintained and tidy and despite previous reviews to the contrary, we found it peaceful and relaxing. The location is excellent with easy access to Porthmadog, Snowdonia and beyond. There is a large Tesco superstore in Porthmadog which is 5 minutes away.The facilities are clean and we will definitely visit again. Oh, and if you are into astronomy, the dark night sky is waiting for you - it's wonderful!

    My wife and I stayed here for four nights, we found the site well kept, clean and in a lovely location.

    Disliked: 

    As an older person I always try to book fully serviced pitches so that I don’t have to drag the water around, these are fully serviced, but unfortunately I was told that because of health and safety reasons all the caravans have to face the same way which means using the mover to place the caravan forward onto the pitch instead of simply reversing on. I understand that this gives the best view but it means the water and drains are in the wrong position. If I had reversed in they would be exactly right. They do supply plastic waste pipe but this has to be run round two sides of the pitch to get to the drain. When I mentioned this I was simply offered a refund if I wanted to go elsewhere.

    Some road noise.

    What a great campsite. Within easy striking of Snowdon, Porthmadog, Harlech, Beddgelert and a few other places. When we got to the site Karen was really nice and helped direct us to our pitch. The site had a warm and friendly atmosphere and when we were doing our research, it was nice to know that they valued responsible campers, so we knew we'd get some sleep.

    It's a good site too for children. There's a tree with a rope swing which a few of the kids gravitated towards and helped them get to know each other and make friends.

    Thanks for everything and we hope to come again.

Directions


From Maentwrog, take a left turn to Harlech on the A496. Barcdy is 4 miles on the left.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Coastline, castles, caverns, museums, steam railways, sailing, horse riding and hiking are all nearby, as is fishing at the two Tecwyn lakes within walking distance and sea fishing for mackerel and bass from Llandanwg Beach.

For wanderers, the local walks accessible straight from site can have them roaming around Welsh woodlands with wondrous views of the Llyn Peninsula in one direction and Snowdon in the other.

If you're spending the day at Llandanwg, have a walk too across the causeway at low tide to Shell Island, where over two hundred different types of shell including oyster, whelk and cockle are washed up each winter; go from January to June for the best bags.

Delve into days at Harlech, Porthmadog and Barmouth too, all popular pulls on the north Wales coastal trail. Harlech has a beaut beach backed by sand dunes, the famed Royal St David's Golf Club and the even more famed Harlech Castle, scene of the longest siege in Welsh history during the Wars of the Roses. (Wales is of course castle country, so get to Cricieth, Caernarfon and Conwy as well.)

At Porthmadog, it'll quickly become apparent that these parts are also steam railway country: the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway and the Ffestiniog Railway, the oldest narrow gauge railway journey in the world, both start in Porthmadog and the Welsh Highland Railway finishes here. Barmouth, the seaside town with another beaut beach, adjoining estuary and the Mawddach Trail, is about 13 miles to the south.

Also within easy reach, you should count on a day out at decidedly individual Italianate village Portmeirion, the National Slate Museum at Llanberis or Llechwedd Slate Caverns, three more popular north Welsh pulls (take another puffy trip on the Snowdon Mountain Railway from Llanberis up to Snowdon's summit).

You could also up the ante with activity day out at Glasfryn Parc and Greenwood Forest Park, visit King Arthur’s Labyrinth (underground boat trips!) or the Centre for Alternative Technology, both near Machynlleth.
