Covered picnic benches and firepits

General

  • Friendly and relaxed riverside campsite
  • On the banks of the River Tryweryn in Snowdonia National Park
  • A short drive to Bala Lake

Right by a river in Snowdonia National Park… that sounds just pretty perfect.

Gwynedd's Tyn Cornel Camping is on the banks of the River Tryweryn, right next to the National White Water Centre for those whose Welsh holiday requirements include whitewater rafting, and four miles from more watery antics at Bala Lake. Mountain biking, climbing and hiking are easy to access from here too – and as you might expect in this part of the world, this woodland-bordered site is set in spectacularly scenic surrounds…

If you're not feeling overly active, have a hol here to be within reach of the attractions of the national park and into the whole of north Wales: you'll find castles, museums, historic houses, steam railways, handsome old villages and – most important – Michelin star eating out for foodies.

Tyn Cornel has modern and well-kept facilities, including free hot showers, a laundry and a covered washing-up area. Dogs are welcome and there's an exercise area to let them let off steam.

Barbecues are encouraged across the whole site: just use them on the blocks provided to raise them off the ground.

    Love, love, loved this gorgeous little site. We only stayed for one night but it was really easy to find, great location for Bala lake. Upon arrival we were greeted by a lovely lady who couldn't do enough to help. It had been raining quite a bit with more on the way so we were offered a hardstanding pitch instead of the one we had booked so we didn't get stuck. Facilities are lovely and clean and has everything you could need. The river walk is lovely and lots of water sports going on which is always fun to watch. Will definitely be back to Tyn Cornel!

Local attractions

Tyn Cornel Camping is in prime location for exploring Snowdonia National Park, whether you're after an active holiday in north Wales or want to chill in spectacular surroundings with occasional trips out to local attractions.

For active types, National White Water Centre is metres away; the river rapids run past the site and a river access ramp is on site. If you've never tried whitewater rafting before this is the place to do it, as well as to tackle kayaking or canoeing year-round. For more action, Surf Snowdonia, Zip World and Bounce Below are all a short trip away.

Walks? Pick from an easy riverside walk straight from the site, the craggy local peak of Arenig Fawr, or ascents like Snowdon or Cadair Idris within easy driving distance.

For biking, some of the UK's best-rated mountain biking trails including Coed y Brenin and Penmachno are within a 30-minute drive, while for road cycling the area is filled with quiet, winding country roads, some stiff climbs and consistently fab views. Family cycling trips can be had at the Mawddach Trail, Llandegla or Llyn Brenig.

The Tyn Cornel team also highly recommends castles including Harlech Castle and Criccieth Castle on the coast; the local narrow gauge railways with spectacular views including the famed Snowdon Mountain Railway and the local Bala Lake Railway; the Italianate setting and buildings of Portmeirion village; the local ales, pub food, takeaways or fine restaurant meals in Bala; Michelin-star fine dining at Tyddyn Llan or Llandrillo…
