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’.

Trawsdir Touring Caravans and Camping Park is situated on the Cardigan Bay coast just 2.5 miles north of Barmouth, on the Harlech Road A496 (bus route).
When you have reached Barmouth, follow the signs for Harlech (do not follow the beach signs in Barmouth) and pass through the town. Once you have passed through the town, you will come to a sign that says "Llanaber". Keep going along this main road. Pass the Church on the left hand side which takes you up the hill. Follow the road further until you come out of the 40 mph speed limit and reach a long straight. Look to your left and you will see a lot of Mobile Holiday Homes. Pass Caerddaniel until you reach the end of the straight, and pass the Wayside Pub/Fish Bar which is on the right. Trawsdir entrance is just a little further down the hill and is on the right.
Exit at the Train Station in Barmouth and go to the Bus Stop adjacent to it, and get on the bus heading towards Harlech. Ask the driver for Trawsdir. Although there is not a designated stop at the entrance to the Park, the driver will stop nearby.
If you have any problems you can call 01341 280611 on your mobile and we will give you more directions if you need them.
