Llwyn yr Helm Caravan Park: Bell tent interior

General

  • Stay on a working farm site in Snowdonia National Park
  • Haven for ramblers, bikers and hikers: lots of nearby trails
  • Less than half an hour’s drive from the Welsh coast beaches

You won’t want to hide among the bushes during your stay at Llwyn yr Helm Caravan Park, a family-friendly site on a working farm less than 10 minutes’ drive from the market town of Dolgellau in Gwynedd – this place is all about getting out and about.

In the southern reaches of Snowdonia National Park, Llwyn yr Helm is a haven for ramblers, bikers and hikers: Mawddach trail, Torrent Walk and Precipice Walk all start in Dolgellau, and Cadair Idris mountain’s Minfford Path starts less than 15 minutes from site. That’s the hikers sorted, so what about the bikers? Coed y Brenin Biking and Visitor Centre is 20 minutes away, and the fab Antur Stiniog downhill biking trails are within an hour.

If you’re not much of an outdoor adventurer, there’s plenty else nearby: try plane spotting at the famous Mach Loop, ziplining at Zip World Slate Caverns or poking around the scenic Italianate village of Portmeirion – or you could make a beeline to the beaches and harbours at Fairbourne or Barmouth, where boat trips and watersports abound?

Back on site, fire up the barbecue for dinner then kick up your feet in the evening, soaking in the views of the Cadair Idris mountain range, reading, or watching a DVD borrowed from reception. If you’d prefer to venture out, there are plenty of restaurants to try within 25 minutes of the site.

    Beautiful views. Excellent facilities. Family friendly and a great welcome from Paul. We stayed in the summer non electric field. There was lots of space to pitch. There is a small but immaculate toilet block in the field to save you having to walk to the shower block at night. We loved it.

Booked a Dros y Bont electric grass tent pitch (secluded) …01/08/2021

    Booked a Dros y Bont electric grass tent pitch (secluded) for a two nights' stay. Very pleasant with all the facilities and services. Water tap and electricity point just next to the picture, the tent pitch is indeed secluded and have good distance with neighbors. The shower room and toilet is really the absolute highlight - the cleanness and modernness is in good match with any - if not better than - proper chain hotels. No issue with noise/surroundaing of the site at all. The only thing worth being aware is the mobile signal - you weren't be ablet to conduct zoom or work meetings on site with that speed (propobaly most most people will get switched off from the other world anyway), but, if the internet speed is good, we would seriously consider stay there for two to three weeks in future! All in all, a wholeheartly recommendation to any one looking at this review. Any by the way, we are a couple with a 8yr old daugther, no issue at all with having children on site too, the animal barn is also spotless for added entertaining. We wished we could stayed there longer....

Budding angler looking for your fishing fix?

For something a little more high culture, the Machynlleth modern art museum is half an hour from Llwyn yr Helm and is well worth a poke around.
