  • Liked: 

    Very pretty and quiet campsite. Well kept and clean.

    Disliked: 

    Only criticism is that there was little or no interaction between owners and campers. There was nothing wrong with the campsite but there was nothing to set it apart from others either.

    Was very enjoyable camp site to stay in, staff was friendly on arrival, and more than happy to supply extra fire wood for our camp fire. There is a lovely small walk through the gate in campsite. Good facilities, clean, tidy site, I would return for sure

    Disliked: 

    Wasn't much really, loads of little flys by river but that's not the site owners fault. Could of been our spot. Only occurred when we had a fire in the evening.

  • Liked: 

    Lovely setting for camping it was peaceful and quiet. Made us feel relaxed to sit by the river and enjoy the surrounding mountains. Great clean facilities available onsite and not far away from the camping areas.

    Disliked: 

    Ths site has no wifi access and it was hard to get a signal, so wifi would have been good. However this is a minor thing and did not affect our lovely holiday.

Excellent site with walks and pubs all within perfect reach. 04/07/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Thomas Kenton W. Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass tent pitch

  • Liked: 

    Firstly the campsite is easy to find travelling from England with the Sat Nav. The address takes you to the entrance (doesn't always happen). The owners were welcoming, pleasant and helpful. The site was spacious, clean, and spectacular setting next to the river and views (even with are damp weekend). All the facilities were excellent including showers, clean toilets, and even a washing machine and dryer service. For anyone climbing Snowdon its only a half hour drive to the Watkins path and Bedgellert (lovely village with all the amenities). And to top it all off the local pub, Oakley Arms, is only a fifteen minute walk from the site and has excellent food, staff and beer!.

    Disliked: 

    Remember your mozzy spray as near the water!

Local attractions

As we say, get ready for slate caverns, an arresting Italianate village, vintage railways, hikes, bike rides and quite a lot more around Llechrwd Riverside Campsite – and the sands of Harlech are within easy driving distance too.

The Vale of Ffestiniog has three of the most visited attractions in north Wales: start off at the head of the valley and the Llechwedd Slate Caverns to take the miners' tramway or head deep into a mine via the funicular railway; explore the Italianate village Portmeirion made famous by telly series The Prisoner; and count yourself in too for a run on the narrow-gauge Ffestiniog Railway, running the length of the valley from Blaenau Ffestiniog to Porthmadog.

The shops, a leisure centre, a cinema, harbour, maritime museum, golf course, cafés and restaurants of Porthmadog should be investigated once there, before a vintage trip on the Welsh Highland Railway from here to Caernarfon via Beddgelert.

Outdoorsy sorts can try the new downhill bike trails of Antur Stiniog at Llechwedd Slate Caverns; hill walking or climbing at the Moelwyn and Manod mountains; the lower level forest and lake walks at Tan-Y-Bwlch; hiking the four miles of sand at Harlech Beach and the smaller bays at Borth-y-Gest, or tackling as much as poss of the Welsh Coastal Path.

While you’re at Harlech, look out for the theatre, golf course, Harlech Castle and the smaller ruin of Criccieth Castle nearby; if castles are your Welsh holiday thang, those at both Caernarfon and Conwy can be reached within an hour's drive.
