Torrent Walk Campsite and Bunkhouse: Views

General

  • Popular place for hikers, bikers and Mach Loop viewers
  • Surrounded by woodland and farmland, 35 mins' drive from Zip World
  • Easy access to the Torrent Walk and Coed-y-Brenin mountain bike centre

Hiker, biker or both? Walk this way. Gywnedd’s Torrent Walk Campsite and Bunkhouse is a Snowdonia mecca for mountain bikers and walkers with trails for both all around.

The Torrent Walk is only 500 metres from the site and the famed Coed-y-Brenin mountain bike centre is in the area with acres more walking trails around it. And, for the truly hardy, the mountain Cadair Idris and its three trails can be tackled nearby… and for the hardier still, the ziplines and airborne antics of Zip World Bounce Below are 35 minutes' drive away.

Back at base, Torrent Walk Campsite and Bunkhouse is surrounded on all sides by woodland, farmland and mountain views, with pitches on a sheltered, level field. Site facilities include a toilet and shower block, disabled facilities, washing machines, tumble dryers, fridges, freezers, a microwave and mobile charging facilities. There’s also a power wash for bikes and equipment, and the Torrent Walk team can store your bike for you if needed.

For stocking up, the garage just up the road sells essentials and Campinggaz, a shop and café are within a five-minute walk, and a small supermarket and a wide range of shops are in the village of Dolgellau a mile and a half away.

Cooking your own dinner? Campfires are allowed but all the materials must be purchased on site.

Please note

If making a fire, the fuel, logs and coal have to be purchased on site.

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

Electric cable hire : a £30 deposit is required and will be fully refunded upon return.

    Everything and more than you need for an out of season campsite. Lovely warm and clean facilities. We only found the room with fridges, kettles and washing machine etc as we were about to leave, not that we needed them, but there were a few tents on site who I'm sure appreciated them. Glorious scenery and walking even if it did rain all the time. We will certainly visit again.

    Disliked: 

    Only thing was the grey water disposal wasn't available as it could not be over driven to drain underbody tanks. No big deal.

    Self check in was great, facilities were very clean and well organised.

    Only thing that could of made the stay easier, is to have markings where each pitch begins/ends, just to avoid some slight confusion on arrival.

Local attractions

The mountains and trails of Snowdonia, the beaches of Barmouth and the north Wales coast, and heritage attractions like the Rheilffordd Talyllyn Railway and Harlech Castle are all within about half an hour’s drive of Torrent Walk, and Snowdonia National Park has activities for all sorts including whitewater rafting, horse riding, climbing and wild swimming.

The closest activity to home is the popular Torrent Walk, a four-mile circular path following the River Clywedog through its gorge; keep an eye out for otters and lesser horseshoe bats along its route. For gentler strolls, the National Trust managed Cregennan Lakes are about five miles west of Dolgellau on the slopes of Cadair ldris, and the flat Mawddach Trail between Dolgellau and Barmouth along the Mawddach estuary has hiking and biking paths with cracking views. Cregannan also has two lakes for fly and worm fishing, one for brown trout and the other for brown and blue.

Head to the coast for Barmouth and Fairbourne, both uncrowded and with miles of golden sand and Blue Flag awards. Beaut Barmouth Harbour, at the mouth of the Mawddach Estuary, is where to bag a boat for sea and fishing trips, while Fairbourne is a big pull for windsurfers and other watersport sorts. If sightseeing both seasides, take the Fairbourne Steam Railway from Fairbourne to Penrhyn Point and then the passenger ferry to Barmouth.
