Torrent Walk Campsite and Bunkhouse: Looking across the pitches

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 viewsome woodland and farmland, with pitches on a sheltered level field. The pitching field is adjacent to the site buildings: toilet and shower block, disabled facilities, washing machines and drying facilities; fridges, freezers, mobile charging facilities and use of microwaves are all available at free of charge. 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.

Swimming in the lake is not allowed.

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

    Scenery. Very helpful owner. Toilets and showers clean, but will struggle when site full, only 4 ladies toilets. Hope everybody has a strong bladder.

    Disliked: 

    Dog charges. No designated dog walk, no bins provided, no Dog bags. For £7.00 for one dog would expect something. Very noisy road at back of site. Had to wait until we went out to get rid of rubbish as the bins bottom of a steep drive.First impressions when you pull in very scruffy not good.

    Location close to beaches and forest

    Disliked: 

    Overcrowded, loud, everyone using fire pits which is very well if you want to, but if you don’t you just get everyone’s else’s smoke in your tent and the whole campsite was a fog of smoke for hours. Toilets were being cleaned at 7:30am in which they closed the whole block and a que was forming ( seemed an odd time to be closing the toilets) however they were fairly clean most of the time. Showers and toilets limited.

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.
