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 (essentials can be sorted in the on-site shop) 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.

    i loved this site even though we only stayed for 1 night we didn't get a chance to feed the animals or go to the play ground. love that we could hire a firepit and buy logs and get them delivered to were we pitched up. (should of bought 2 pack of logs) The person at reception was so friendly when explaining on where to pitch up. the kids loved it as it was there first time camping. (p.s sorry for anyone camping and got a screaming wake up call at 6am from a 18 month old) the field was big enough for my 4 year old son to play football and have other children play their own games aswell. the toilets was clean and even had lights and mirrors in them. always had toilet roll and hand towels in them. loved the sink so i could wash the babies bottle. they even had drinking water on the other side. saved going to the shop for bottled water. could still get signal on my phone which i loved. shame my camera on my phone is broke so coundnt take no pictures but will defiently be back and for longer next time.

    Disliked: 

    in the toilets in the summer field there are holes in between the wood so you could see into the other toilet. was a bit awkward when a man was peeing and looking straight at me while i was washing my hands but we just laughed it off.
    the grass was a bit over grown and needed a cut but never bothered me so i don't really count that as a dislike.

    The pitches were a good size and the toilet/shower block was immaculate! Even had family showers too which came in handy with our 11 month old. There was a little farm there which was a big hit with the kids and myself! For 50p you can get some animal feed and feed them. The reception came in handy as we had forgotten some bits and they had fresh eggs and some lovely sausages. The owner was really nice and gave me directions to a local store .

    Disliked: 

    Didn't dislike anything from the site, just the tight roads leading to the site. I was quite glad I didn't come in our motorhome as I think we would of damaged it.

Budding angler looking for your fishing fix? Turn your boat to Cregennan lakes about 25 minutes from the site to cast a line – if nothing’s biting, there are scenic trails around the lake so it won’t be a wasted trip.

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.
