Pitches

General

  • Pet-friendly site in Snowdonia National Park with landscaped grounds
  • A 10-min walk to Dolgellau; five mins’ drive to Mawddach Trail’s start
  • Barmouth beach and Coed-y-Brenin mountain biking within 20 mins' drive

Hiking boots at the ready: it’s time for a hol in the lush landscaped grounds of Tan-Y-Fron Holiday Park, a peaceful family-run place set in the southern region of Snowdonia National Park and a 10-minute walk from Dolgellau.

This centrally located north Wales site is 20 minutes from the beaches of this bountiful area – like Barmouth, sitting in front of the Mawddach estuary where fishing, sea and estuary trips set sail from – and five minutes’ drive to the starting point for an hike along the Mawddach Trail, the tough 13.48-mile long path through low hills and fells. Another famed trek is to the peak of Cadair Idris, the bottom of which is 40 minutes away by car from the site.

If you’re looking for more leisurely ways to while away the time, pack a picnic hamper full of produce from the supermarkets and small shops of Dolgellau and bimble over to the Cymer Abbey ruins less than 10 minutes away, where the kids can have dips in the clear waters of the river if the sun’s shining. Pets are welcome here and back on site, so you can easily bring your four-legged friend along for the ride.

Plenty more old piles are in this historic area, with the remote Castell y Bere castle a 25-minute drive away and the better-preserved Harlech Castle sitting 40 minutes to the north west on the coast. Riding a bike more your thing? Hire a set of wheels in Dolgellau and zoom over to the trails at Coed-y-Brenin a 25-minute drive away.

Please note

  • Liked: 

    Location- few minutes walk into the beautiful and historic town of Dolgellau. Plenty of places to eat/drink. Access to the Mawddach trail which you can follow all the way to Barmouth - well worth the 9 mile walk. Oddly when we booked in we were given loads of information about things to do near to the site but nothing on this local trail. It is a beautiful walk following the estuary with loads to see open route whether you cycle or walk - off road too so safe for younger children.

    Disliked: 

    We stayed Fri - Sat of BH weekend so our pitch was behind a hedge next to the main road - the view to the back of the property is stunning as I am sure are the views from the top of the site. A little distance from this pitch to the toilet/shower/ washing up facilities - fine for us. Showers would benefit from removal of shower curtains.

Pitch Up bookers get worst service at this site17/06/2019

    Disliked: 

    Booked through Pitch Up. Given a really poor pitch on arrival - tiny, practically in the car park, informed that electric may or may not work - while campervan arriving immediately after us got a much nicer, more spacious pitch with good views. Requested a better pitch, we were told that because we booked through Pitch Up, we had been given one of the worst pitches because Pitch Up take commission. Reluctantly gave us a better pitch when we complained. We paid the same amount as the other van, but we were offered a service well below standard. Didn't bother staying the second night - there are much better sites around, and the attitude of the guy who was working there really annoyed us. If you book through Pitch Up, expect a poor pitch. Won't be back.

From the manager...

Unfortunately we can't please everyone, the Pitches are big enough for Motorhome's and Caravans let alone a small Campervan.

Local attractions

If your tired toes are desperate for a paddle after taking on treks in Snowdonia National Park, the glacial lake of Tal-y-Llyn – where boating and fishing can also be pursued by active types among us – is a 15-minute drive away.

You can also set forth for the shores of Aberdyfi (home to an excellent artisan ice cream shop) and Blackrock Sands 35 and 45 minutes away, or roam around closer sections of coastline including the dune-backed Fairbourne (20 minutes), next to the Blue Lake quarry where swims can be had in the bright blue water.

For dry-land adventures, take a tourist train trip – the railways of Bala Lake, Fairbourne, Talyllyn and Corris are all about a 20-minute drive from Tan-Y-Fron Holiday Park.

  • CADW - Harlech Castle (12.6 miles)
  • Rheilffordd Talyllyn Railway (14.2 miles)
