Maes Carafanau Hendy Caravan Park: Serviced pitches

General

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

Snowdonia National Park, Anglesey’s beaches, the lovely Llŷn 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.

    Nice large pitches. Shower block excellent and washing machine/dryer available. Hair dryer in the shower block.
    Half of the vans were seasonal but that makes the site quieter especially in the week
    You have to like dogs on this site as some roam around.
    Great access to Caernarfon.

    Secluded, peaceful, all you could hear was cows, birds and the occasional toot from the train. Toilet and shower block super clean and well kept. Great directions to site. Perfect for walks into Caernarfon and lots of lovely beaches fairly nearby by car.

    Disliked: 

    One tiny point was that we have a dog who is completely okay unless dogs approach her. On our first day a dog without a collar was wandering the site and came very close to us setting our dog off on a frenzy (as she was tethered of course). This dog also grabbed the dog bowl full of food and ran off with it lol. I think it was attached to the farm so hard to avoid but worth mentioning. It will not stop us revisiting when we can.

    Great spot based on a working farm. Small number of plots in a very quiet location. The shower/toilet block is one of the best I've ever experienced! A 15-20 minute flat walk into town and a similar length drive to get to the start of most of the popular Snowdon walks. Well recommended!

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 Llŷn Peninsula, for more splendid beaches as well as wildlife-watching boat trips.
