Gwerniago Campsite: Electric hardstanding pitches

General

  • Rural and back to nature site in southern Snowdonia
  • Spectacular views of the Dovey Estuary and the hills of mid-Wales
  • Near Cader Idris and the golden beaches of Aberdovey and Borth/Ynyslas

Sitting pretty at the southernmost point of Snowdonia National Park, there’s really s’no escaping the back to nature goodness of Gwerniago Campsite, also a working farm.

Whether you want a splendid location, a cracking pub or a good old-fashioned field where you can light your own off-ground campfire (and buy the wood you need on site too), pitching up at Gwerniago will tick plenty of boxes.

Cycling, river walks and an array of outdoorsy activities are around the Dyfi Valley, but the real winners here are the youngsters (although big kids should enjoy getting stuck in just as much): from rides on Sophie the pony and chances to help feed the lambs in season, to the wooded play area complete with tree swing, this place is fit for any little explorer.

Strollers and avid hikers alike will be in their element at these rural digs, as will twitchers; the farm is close to the RSPB’s Ynyshir reserve, home of the BBC’s Springwatch in past years. Grab your binoculars to spot red kites overhead and keep a beady eye out for the Dyfi osprey nest which you can spy from the site.

As well as the clean and modern facilities on site, which include a shower and toilet block with solar-provided hot water (backed up by electric), new wooden footboards and nifty timed lighting as per the site’s eco-friendly policies, other touches added by the Welsh-speaking farming family owners include free access to a small kitchen with a fridge freezer, washing-up sinks and a phone charger point.

The farm is within walking distance of Pennal village for those who fancy pub grub or a posh bite at the local hotel's Michelin-starred restaurant.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

Directions


If travelling from north Wales via Dolgellau, cross the road by Dovey Bridge and take the Aberdovey Road (A493). The campsite is two miles from the bridge, signposted on the left, and then the first farm on the right.

If travelling from Shrewbury/Welshpool, turn right by the clock in Machynlleth, then immediately left over the bridge. The campsite is on the left two miles up the road. If travelling from the south via Aberystwyth, drive straight through Machynlleth, over the bridge, immediately left and as above.

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

Four miles to the east is Machynlleth for the local street market on Wednesdays and getting techy at the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT). Aberystwyth is about a 40-minute drive south for shops, restaurants and nights out.

If you’d rather escape the towns, explore the award-winning beaches and harbours (15 minutes away) for fishing and strolling. The Aberdyfi estuary’s beaches and sand dunes are some of the best kept in the country, and for those who fancy a round (of golf, that is), the area is also home to an award-winning golf course. For kitesurfers and boarders, beaches at Tywyn, Borth and Fairbourne (the furthest of which is 10 miles away) should offer some exciting sporting opportunities, with some even offering tuition.

If you prefer more laidback days out, take a trip to Talyllyn’s steam railway (around eight miles away) or travel from Aberystwyth to Devil’s Bridge on the Vale of Rheidol steam railway line.

Must see

  • MOMA Wales - Y Tabernacl (2.1 miles)
  • Rheilffordd Talyllyn Railway (7.9 miles)
  • Vale of Rheidol Railway (Aberystwyth) (14.2 miles)
