General

  • Family-run farm on the edge of Snowdonia National Park
  • Donkeys, llamas, chickens and more to see on site
  • Well-known walking country with hundreds of acres direct from the farm

Off to Wales to wander? Pitch up at superbly scenic Tyn Yr Onnen Farm, on the edge of Snowdonia National Park between the Moel Eilio and the Elephant Mountains (Mynydd Mawr), for a hiking holiday you won't forget.

Keen-footed wayfarers of all abilities can wander hundreds of acres of heathland direct from the farm including a route right up to Snowdon's peak – although if that thought makes you pale, the Snowdon Mountain Railway with its more relaxed summit accessing is only a few miles away.

Guests also travel to Tyn Yr Onnen Farm and this part of north Wales for the coastline and beaches of the Llŷn Peninsula and the Isle of Anglesey within easy driving distance, and to get down with Wales's mighty heritage at the likes of the National Slate Centre and the castles of Harlech, Caernarfon, Bangor, Beaumaris, all nearby.

On site, llamas, donkeys, pigs, chickens, ducks, turkeys and newborn lambs in spring inhabit the farm for the kids to coo at: Tyn Yr Onnen is a working 180-acre sheep farm managed by the Griffiths family for over 300 years. Pitches are sheltered, with loads of room for barbecues, and campfires are allowed in one of the camping fields.

The kids can entertain themselves at the play area with sandpit, or in the TV room with table tennis and pool table if the weather's a bit misty (parental supervision required at all times, of course), while the grownups should be chuffed at the clean and modern amenities in the refurbished toilet and shower block, with free hot showers, baby changing, disabled facilities and a utility room with washing-up area, campers' fridge and freezer, washing machines and tumble drier.

The local village, Waunfawr, is within walking distance and has a village shop open daily, as well as a pub serving the type of good food you want after a hike.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

Perfect location, excellent facilites and helpful staff 21/07/2017

  • Liked: 

    We arrived to a very quiet, peaceful site with beautiful views of the mountain.
    We had a friendly welcome and were able to pick our own pitch.

    The site has fire pits that you can rent for your stay and there's plenty of wood stocked in reception. This proved a life-saver on cold nights.
    Reception also sells food, drink, mountain guides, essentials you may have forgotten and feed for the resident donkeys.

    The shower block is modern, clean and was always stocked with soap and toilet roll. The showers themselves are rain showers and you can have them as hot as you like which is ideal after a long day of hiking.

    The site itself is located a short drive from the mountains to the East and the coast to the West with plenty of places to eat in between so we were never short of things to do.

    In the evenings, you can chill out in the games room that has a big TV, comfy sofas, a pool table and table tennis. There is also a brilliant play park for kids to enjoy.

    We had a brilliant 3 nights and will definitely be returning.

    Disliked: 

    We were pitched on a slight hill that meant both us and our belongings ended up on one side of the tent in the mornings but we did pick the pitch!

    We could connect to the Wi-Fi in the top field but it was very touch and go.

    The timer on the lights in the shower block left me in the dark on a few occasions while I was showering. (Perhaps I was enjoying them too much after a day climbing Snowdon)

    Fantastic views or mountains. Able to walk straight out onto hills from campsite. Very friendly helpful staff. Animals in fields. Well kept grounds. Clean facilities.

    Disliked: 

    Although the rules state clearly that dogs must be kept on a lead at all times there were several dogs running about loose which when they come and pee on your pitch is not pleasant.

From the manager...

Thanks for your feedback, we need to be more vigilant on the issue you have raised. Glad you had a great time.

  • Mynydd Mawr camping pod (4 adults 1 child)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The podvan was nice and spacious and had everything we needed (bar the shower but that was close by).
    Clive and the crew were on hand for anything we needed. Can't remember the young man's name but he went above and beyond for my son, showing him baby sheep and ducks.
    The park was lovely, having animals that close was amazing, waking up to a real "cock a doodle do" was an experience!
    All in all, would definitely come back and highly recommend this place.

    Disliked: 

    The podvan wasn't very tall so my 6'4 husband had to duck a lot, but that's literally the only thing I could think of for a negative. Aside from the weather, but no one can change that!

Directions


Just off the A4085 between Caernarfon and Beddgelert is the village of Waunfawr. Look for the Skoda garage on the right, pass this and then take the third left. If you pass a church on the right or reach the bridge over a river then you have gone too far. The campsite is on your left about a kilometre from the main village road.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

The surrounding area has heaps to see and do alongside the rambles, coastlines and castles: if you get a bit stuck for choice, ask the family for their top picks. Within a short drive are Surf Snowdonia in Conway, Zip World in Bethesda (home to Velocity, the fastest zipline in the world and the longest in Europe), the treetop nets of Bounce Below, Zip World Caverns in Blaenau Ffestiniog and GreenWood Forest Park a family adventure park in Y Felinheli.

Rather conveniently, one of Wales's top attractions is less than five miles from Tyn Yr Onnen Farm, the National Slate Museum in Llanberis, where kids can get stuck into the story of the country's mining heritage amid talks and demos, quarrymen's houses and interactive play activities.

Llanberis village is where many set out to climb Snowdon as the Llanberis Path begins here, winding up the least taxing route (we'll point out again that the Snowdon Mountain Railway goes to the top too). The village is also a popular place for adventurous activities like kayaking, coasteering, scuba diving, mountain biking, pony trekking and high ropes courses.

Another popular pull of these parts is the Dinorwig Power Station or Electric Mountain: take an underground tour, set the kids free to play in the den, or test your wits in the Genius Corner puzzle room.
