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.

    Wide open spaces, being greeted each morning by a pair of cheeky ponies and some donkeys - amazing! Clean toilets and shower cubicles, the park activity was loved by my children. And the stars!!! Oh my word! I am so glad I needed the toilet during the night - it was wonderful to be bathed in starlight! we will definitely be back in autumn/winter so that we can sit out and enjoy the stars. awesome!

    This is a superb site, we were made to feel very welcome by Clive, who provided lots of useful information about the surrounding area. The views are stunning and you can hear and see all sorts of wildlife. It is a great site for both adults and families with excellent facilities.

    There is a lovely micro-brewery pub 20 mins walk from the site next to the steam railway station, it serves food and has loads of garden space.

    Will definately be staying again. Our little boy claimed it was the best campsite ever.

    The beautiful setting, friendly and helpful owners and play area. Most of all though the chance to explore the surrounding farm and climb Moel Eilio straight from the campsite. Oh, and campfires allowed which has become a must for us.

    Disliked: 

    Not that many toilets and showers but they were well maintained

    Nice big pitch but on a bit of a hill. Lovely views.

    Disliked: 

    Shower block and toilets were cold however really good shower and hot water. Just the block was freezing and dirty at times but this is down to people not leaving it clean not because it wasn't cleans by Starr. Maybe an extra clean in the middle of the day . Somthing in the shower to put your stuff on would also be good . Their is a hook but not enough for towels and clothes. Also no opportunity for a later check out . This is somthing I am happy to pay for and have never been refused on a camp site befor

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.
