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.

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

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

    The caravan was clean, well kept and had everything we needed for the week. The play park right outside was brilliant and our two kids (3 & 9) spent every minute we weren't out adventuring playing in it. The views surrounding the campsite are magical. The showers were always spotless and hot. The children joined in feeding the lambs which they adored, we also popped up to see the pigs & piglets a few times. The staff were friendly, helpful, professional and really knowledgeable on the local area. They were also very considerate to the fact that we are a vegan family and aired our caravan out before we arrived as it smelt like bacon! (We don't mind the smell, we just don't eat animals but it is truly a measure of how lovely the staff are). Our children made friends with another family who have visited the campsite for five years, they exchanged numbers & addresses to be penpals. The campsite was clean with plenty of notices to keep gates shut as it is a working farm. We fed carrots to the donkeys. The games room has a pool table, tv, table tennis and comfy sofas - it was kept clean throughout our stay. The little shop has all the basics which was great as we forgot to bring sugar! The campsite is is a central location to so many great days out, we particularly fell in love with Llandudno.

    Peaceful, relaxing,scenery. My daughter stayed out playing all day as there are plenty of children on the campsite. Would be boring for kids if there wasn’t anyone else there, even though there are plenty of things on the site for kids to play in and on. Staff very helpful and friendly. Bought some sausages from on site shop ( from their farm) and they were the best we have ever had.

    Disliked: 

    Entry and exit road could be a rather tricky if 2 vans are coming in the opposite direction as there is now way to turn back. Ok if you are camping as you can reverse easily into a cut out space.

    There was everything to like about this beautiful campsite. The setting was amazing, surrounded by gorgeous views, it was so peaceful.
    We had a great pitch, which was quite private so you didn't feel you were on top of everyone.
    The facilities were very clean, hot water and there were enough toilets and showers so you never had to wait. The little shop sold all you basic needs which was very handy!
    The site was in short driving distance to all the lovely local towns!
    The owners were great, very helpful and gave us some great tips of where to go and explore!
    Thank you for a fantastic weekend!
    We will hopefully be looking to book again later this year and bring some family!

    There was nothing to dislike apart from the weather, but we didn't let it dampen our getaway!

    Peaceful location, excellent public transport links and a short walk to Welsh Highland Steam railway. The site is within Snowdonia national park and has beautiful views of the mountains. We received a warm welcome and after getting a bit stuck in the wet grass filling up our motorhome with water, the owner let us have a hard standing pitch instead of the grass pitch we had originally booked.

    The view was stunning, the staff member we met on arrival was extremely friendly and told us about all the things we could do in the area - very happy to help! There were lots of farm animals around to look at. The toilets and showers block was clean and well kept. It was a short walk to the he nearest pub, and a 10 minute drove into caernarfon which is well worth the visit. Will definitely be back!

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.
