General

  • Spectacular views of the Llyn Peninsula
  • On a sheep and beef farm a stroll from Aberdaron Bay
  • Around 30 minutes from Pwllheli

We recommend a camera as essential packing for a stay at Bwlchgwyn Campsite. Or a paintbox if you’re of the artistic variety: the views here of the Llyn Peninsula will have you setting up your easel before you can say Bwlchgwyn. Known as the Land’s End of Wales, this corner of the country has a heritage coastline, crags, cliffs and coves, and long stretches of beach to snap or paint at. Or have a picnic – we’re fans of the leisurely picnic around scenic sites...

Bwlchgwyn Campsite is based on a sheep and beef farm with views of Bardsey Island from nearby Anelog Mountain, and is a short stroll from the award-winning and sheltered sandy beach at Aberdaron Bay (did we mention picnics?). Clean loos and free showers on site.

For food, Aberdaron village has pubs, cafés, a grocery store and a bakery; the Llyn Peninsula capital and market town of Pwllheli is around 30 minutes’ away.

  • Liked: 

    The location. Beautiful view, good distance to the beach (Aberdaron) as could walk to it. Basic facilities but clean and perfectly functional - you are camping after all so simplicity is good. The owner - lovely man.

    Disliked: 

    Need a sign on the junction just down the road as we took a confusing detour due to silly sat nav instructions.

    Also just a little instruction of where to pitch on arrival although we were the only campers so didnt matter (but for busier times may be a bit confusing).

Directions


Directions from Pwllheli:
Follow A499 to Llanbedrog. In Llanbedrog turn right onto the B4413 signposted Aberdaron. The journey to Aberdaron will take you approximately 20 minutes from here. As you enter the village of Aberdaron take the right-hand turning immediately after passing the Spar shop. Take this road for approximately half a mile. Turn left at the turning signposted Uwchmynydd. The campsite is the first property on the right-hand side on this road.

Local attractions

The lively seaside resort of Abersoch between Aberdaron and Pwllheli is a popular watersports spot and holds an annual regatta, a surfing contest and the famous Wakestock wakeboarding and music festival each July.

There’s an 18-hole golf course at the village and several more in the surrounding area, a couple of riding centres nearby, and sheltered beaches and bays for sailing and windsurfing: fearless and experienced surfers can brave the waves at the popular Hell’s Mouth from Porth Neigwl beach.

Aberdaron was the last stop centuries ago of pilgrims going to Ynys Enlli or Bardsley Island, said to be the burial place of King Arthur and still popular with tourists today for its scenery and wildlife. Twenty-first century visitors can hail a boat to the island from Porth Meudwy/Hermit’s Cove for more picnicking and painting; Ynys Enlli is also a National Nature Reserve so look out for porpoises, seals, dolphins and the nesting Manx shearwaters.

There are aber-solutely loads of day trips round and about this area: Porthmadog and Caernarfon are around half an hour’s drive from Pwllheli, and Snowdonia National Park, visible from Abersoch, has endless activity options including white-water rafting, fishing, mountain biking and climbing.

There are several villages to day-trip around too, such as lovely Llangian which has won awards for being the best kept village in Wales; the mountain village of Rhiw with historic house and ornamental garden at Plas Yn Rhiw, and the Italianate Portmeirion, famous as the filming location of TV series The Prisoner.

Elsewhere in the area, steam fans can take a trip through the park’s woodland and waterfalls on the Ffestiniog Railway, with the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway puffing off from Porthmadog.

The Welsh Mountain Zoo and several award-winning gardens (and beaches) are north at Colwyn Bay, which has easy access to the Isle of Anglesey, the seaside resort of Llandudno and the ancient walled town of Conwy with its looming castle.

Must see

  • Criccieth Castle (22.3 miles)
  • CADW - Harlech Castle (26.3 miles)
  • Welsh Highland Railway (Porthmadog) (26.5 miles)

National Trust

  • Plas yn Rhiw (4.9 miles)
