You’re guaranteed a warm, Welsh-speaking welcome at Glanmor Isaf – in fact we were very pleased when one of our past guests commented that “the family here do everything to make your stay a happy one, from coming to find you when a lamb is being born to encouraging you to watch them shear the sheep and even trim their toenails!” And we do pride ourselves on our hospitality.
In our first year we were particularly pleased to be voted ‘Best Farm for Hospitality’, something we’ll be working hard to achieve again in 2012. After a walk past our elegant stone farm buildings you’ll reach the intimate setting of our tents – under the canopy of a cosy orchard behind the 150-year-old farmhouse, which means the site has excellent seclusion whilst still giving a great farmyard experience. The farm has stunning views back across to Snowdon and the Carneddau Mountains where our sheep and cattle are grazed, and if downhill walking or cycling is your speciality then you’re in luck as we are regularly driving up there and can offer you a lift. The mountain scene is only one part of the picture though, because as you stand in the farm and gaze up at it, the sea and a private pebble beach are directly behind you, a mere field’s walk away. Although you’ve gone luxury camping in Snowdonia, you’ve got a seaside holiday thrown in as well.
We’ve farmed here for four generations and are certified organic for Welsh Black cattle, hardy mountain sheep, pigs and chickens. Lambing is a particular early season attraction too.
We all look forward to welcoming you here and hope you experience and enjoy what we hold dear: traditional Welsh family farm life and the beautiful, peaceful countryside.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

We’re set in a landscape that represents wild Britain at its finest. There’s mountain biking on the North Wales Cycle Track, and climbing and vigorous walking along the North Wales Costal Path, not to mention a private pebble beach that is both a nature reserve and a Site of Specific Scientific Interest stacked with cockles and mussels for your campfire.
Your neighbours live in Penrhyn Castle; stray just a little further afield and you’re at the crenulations of Caernarfon and the sandy beaches of Anglesey. You can take in the scenery by narrow-gauge railway as there are four beautiful lines nearby; the most historic of these is the Snowdon Mountain Railway, which goes straight up to the summit of Wales’s highest peak.
Water sports can be enjoyed on the Menai Straits at Plat Menai Centre, and there are outdoor pursuits galore at Betws y Coed and Llanberis, each around 20 minutes away from Glamor Isaf by car. And for our littler guests there are GreenWood Forest Park and Angelsey Sea Zoo.
