Jeff and Shirley welcome you to Parc Elernion in north Wales: a small quiet park at the base of The Rivals (Yr Eifl ) which rise 1,700 feet behind the site.
The site is a short walk from a lovely little sandy beach with a harbour , and has direct access to the Wales Coast Path. It's surrounded by 52 acres of woodland: a diverse mixture of scrub, grassland and streams provide biodiversity for wildlife including bats and badgers and many flowers including bluebells.
The site is a short drive to historic castles and villages along the Welsh coast. A drive inland will take you to Mount Snowdon with its railway if you don’t fancy the climb.
A toilet and shower block and a laundry room were added in 2016.

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.
