Whether you want to wander around on foot or pootle about by pedal power, we think you’ll find Graig Wen in Snowdonia National Park a wheelie good pick for activities and views… This award-winning park’s accolades include a Green Snowdonia Award for most sustainable campsite and the Green Traveller Best Forest Escape 2013, and it has direct access through its fields to the Mawddach cycle trail and footpath, the waterside trail from Dolgellau to Barmouth shown off on telly by Julia Bradbury on the Beeb’s Railway Walks. And as the trail is only eight miles long, you’ll no doubt feel chuff-chuffed when you finish it – and after that, you can pedal to the pub on a bike hired from the Graig Wen team...

Those bringing their own two wheels have heaps to handle in the immediate area if mountain biking gears them up: the Cadair Idris mountain range is just behind Graig Wen and it’s about 15 minutes from the site to the mighty mountain biking centre and trails at Coed y Brenin forest.

Feeling faint at the very thought? Basking on the beach at Barmouth is five minutes away; the area around the site is a wildlife haven to spot owls, woodpeckers, buzzards plus a possible nightjar, and Graig Wen’s corner of Snowdonia National Park is peaceful enough that you can wander for miles and meet only sheep (do baa hallo; it’s only polite).

Back at base, it’s all pretty peaceful: tourer, motorhome and smaller tent pitches, many with views of the surrounding mountains and the Mawddach Estuary below; two yurts and a handmade wooden cabin among oak and silver birch trees, both with private firepit/campfire areas. Guests looking for a really wild camping experience can leave the car at the main site and pitch on the site’s lower fields where campfires are permitted and there’s a composting loo available. Just bring your best Scout mentality and be prepared for a rather steep walk to the main facilities, and to pass a fair few sheep who’ll be your neighbours during your stay! Crossed by streams and edged by drystone walls, campers in these fields will be rewarded for their wilder camping efforts by some of the best views and wildlife spotting the site has to offer.

The excellent amenities include well-maintained and clean loos, new and free hot showers, a washing-up area and an honesty shop with local produce: take a picnic to one of the communal benches on site, also with wheelie stupendous views.

Terms and conditions

Please read the park terms and conditions below and the Pitchup.com terms and conditions.


Groups of 7 or more people are not accepted via Pitchup.com

We do not accept new arrivals for the yurt after 7pm or after 9pm for the touring campsite. If you do not arrive by these times on the first day of your booking and you have not advised us otherwise then we reserve the right to relet your pitch.

Strictly no arrivals before 12 noon.

We will make every effort to allocate guests the pitch of their choice; however, it must be clearly understood that acceptance of a booking is not conditional on the allocation of a particular pitch.

We will direct you to your pitch on arrival. If you are on any doubt if you are on the correct pitch please check with staff. Any guest on the wrong pitch may be required to move. If you wish to extend your stay beyond the booked dates we will do our best to accommodate you but there is no guarantee that the same pitch will be available.

By booking with us, you have entered into a contract in which you undertake, on behalf of yourself and the people in your party (including children), to:
- respect your fellow guests, neighbours and people/animals who live/work at Graig Wen
- supervise children appropriately so they are not a nuisance or danger to themselves and other people or animals.

The top touring site is fenced but beyond this Graig Wen’s landscape and lower camping fields includes some steep slopes, trees and shallow water and parents/guardians are responsible for ensuring their children explore safely.

Guests agree they will not create any undue noise or disturbance.

Quiet hours are from 11pm to 7.30am. Please respect your neighbours and keep noise to a minimum between these hours.

We take the well-being and safety of our guests very seriously and ask that you comply with the following:

The vehicle speed limit on site is 5mph. With children and animals roaming around the site it is very important to respect this. All vehicles must conform to the Road Traffic Act and have current tax, MOT and insurance. The Highway Code applies to driving on site and driving under the influence of alcohol is forbidden. No recreational vehicles can be used at the site such as mini scooters.

Dogs must be on a lead at all times on the site. Please clean up after your dog. Do not leave your dog unattended at any time. We reserve the right to ask owners to remove their dog or any other pet from Graig Wen if it is a nuisance or danger to others.

Barbecues must be raised from the ground.
