General

  • Rural site on a dairy farm 20 minutes' walk from Caernarfon
  • Half an hour from Snowdonia, Anglesey and the Llyn Peninsula
  • Well-kept amenities including an accessible wetroom

Snowdonia National Park, Anglesey’s beaches, the lovely Llyn Peninsula… if you fancy taking in lots of the local faves on your north-west Wales hols, take a look at handily placed Maes Carafanau Hendy Caravan Park.

From this relaxed rural spot on a working dairy farm it’s around half an hour by car to all of the above, and a 20-minute stroll to historic Caernarfon, famed for its UNESCO-listed castle but also a popular place for poking about in the town’s independent shops and cafés. The Welsh Highland Railway and the Lôn Eifion cycle path pass by the site too, giving guests easy access to all sorts of ways to roam.

Those in search of heaps of on-site activities will have to look elsewhere, as the Joneses have chosen to keep their place as peaceful as poss, focusing on doing the essential amenities to top standards. The large pitches have space to spread about a bit with access to electrical hookups and drinking water, and the top-notch bathroom facilities have hot showers, an accessible wetroom... and hairdryers for those days when the Welsh weather has messed with your mop.

Small well kept site 29/10/2018

  • Liked: 

    Site next to working farm, well laid out, with clean modern toilets, only two toilets in ladies and one shower, 12 pitches in total. Very well positioned for cycle path, just down the lane from site and next to narrow gauge railway. 25 minutes walk into Carnarvon but only 10 minutes on bike. Plenty of cycle path routes to explore. Well based for further exploration by vehicle. Very friendly owners. Looking forward to returning.

For where it was, it is a reasonable price in the summer, but perhaps 04/10/2018

    Lovely clean site only 20-30 min walk into Caernarfon. Extremely quiet at night, and if you're lucky, a good view of the mountains....mist permitting. In the morning you can hear the steam train that passes through, sounding it's whistle, and a few mins later, see the beautiful plume of steam as it passes at the end of the lane!

    Scenic location with a leisurely stroll into Caernarfon taking approx 20 minutes alongside the Welsh Highland Railway line. Also close to Fron Goch Garden Centre. Lovely clean shower/toilets with use of washing machine & tumble drier if needed. Thoroughly enjoyable week spent relaxing in the peace of the countryside listening to the wildlife especially the owls at night. Friendly staff. Fully serviced hard standing level pitches a bonus!

Local attractions

Start by taking a stroll into Caernarfon to see the mighty waterfront castle, a huge and well-preserved place with lots to see and plenty of puzzles and activities for the tiddlers; it’s worth having a look around the Royal Welch Fusiliers Regimental Museum while you’re here too.

The Welsh Highland Railway runs steam train rides from Caernarfon: grab a spot at the station to watch them depart or get all aboard for the 25-mile ride through the mountains to Porthmadog. If you prefer to travel under your own steam, there’s easy access to the scenic 12-mile Lôn Eifion cycle path, a hard-surfaced path that skirts the edge of Snowdonia for some great views and village visits.

For days by the seaside, cross the Menai Suspension Bridge to Anglesey – there are some lovely beaches on the island (Traeth Cymyran, 40 minutes away, is perhaps the most popular) – and the excellent Anglesey Sea Zoo, home to a seahorse breeding programme and the Lobster Hatchery of Wales. Head south instead and it’s around a half-hour drive to Pwlheli on the Llyn Peninsula, for more splendid beaches as well as wildlife-watching boat trips.
