Tan Aeldroch Farm: Lledr Valley vistas

General

  • Peaceful Snowdonia site bordered by woodland and a river
  • A 20-minute drive from Capel Curig and half an hour from Conwy
  • Set on a 42-acre sheep farm; campfires allowed and logs sold on site

Hoping for some holidays close to the high Welsh peaks? Tan Aeldroch Farm is a sprawling Welsh sheep farm with green Gwynedd views right across Snowdonia National Park.

This 42-acre site has a wild feel to it, although the grounds are always well maintained (courtesy of the flocks of live-in lawnmowers that you'll be sharing with). Bordered by the river Lledr on one side and woodland on the other, the farm has plenty of secluded spots, trees to climb and rocks to clamber over. Handily, though, it's within a couple of hundred yards of the A470, opening up many options for off-site jaunts (including trips to the sea, about half an hour's drive away).

The farm's eco-conscious owners have been working to restore the natural balance of this part of the valley since 2003 – help them up by making sure that you leave no trace when settling down here. The facilities at Tan Aeldroch Farm are basic, but you can count on flushing loos and a standpipe. Getting chilly in the evening? Make your own heat by setting up a fire in one of the designated firepits (please bring your own wood). To keep things as peaceful as possible, don't use radios or stereos if hanging by at the pitches, ta.

The nearest bar and food shop are in Dolwyddelan, a couple of villages down the main road (five minutes' drive). You can also catch a train here if arriving without a car and book a taxi to the site.

Please note

This is a quiet site: no music is allowed.

    Beautiful, spacious campsite. Basic facilities but very clean and never ran out of toilet roll. Campers respected the quiet night rule and we were able to listen to the owls in the surrounding woods whilst sitting around our campfire. Take insect repellent if all sorts however to find off the gnats!!!

    Lovely setting next to river - although not easy to access past reserved pitches. Really well located so near to Betws-y-Coed. Clean, basic loos and one hot water tap if needed.

    Disliked: 

    Noisy campers - radio, loud partying until after midnight both nights I stayed - but my fault for not taking earplugs.

    Beautiful setting, toilets were cleaned every morning and always left with a good supply of loo roll. Friendly owner. Logs available for fire on campsite. Very close to a town that had a great atmosphere you can also catch the bus there to the miners and pyg trail, which saves parking at the very busy car parks at the start of the trail.

    Disliked: 

    No showers but did having running hot water. A lot of midges flys.

    Quiet and beautiful campsite by the river. Clean toilets (saw them being cleaned regularly). Don't think the bugs were as bad as some of the reviewers have mentioned, but we did have a citronella torch and spray to keep them away. Less than a 10 minute drive to get to Betsi which has great vegan food options. Will be staying again.

    The location was beautiful, really couldn’t have been any more picturesque! The river was lovely to listen to, and the mist over the mountains was like a painting.
    Toilets were better than expected!

    Disliked: 

    We are aware this is not the campsites fault at all, but the midgies and mosquitoes were relentless! We did camp right by the trees, so it may be better in the open.

Local attractions

Coming here to conquer Snowdon? Pen-Y-Pass car park is about half an hour's drive if you're ascending on foot, while the Llanberis station where you can pick up the Snowdon Mountain Railway is also well within range (35 minutes). Make sure to pack sensible clothing if heading out for a hike – any shorts and t-shirts you've brought along can be put to good use on the beach at Llandudno or Colwyn Bay (both 35 minutes).

Up for a trip on the longest zipline this side of the equator? Then make for Zip World Fforest (10 minutes' drive), where there's also a kilometre-long rollercoaster that twists downhill through the trees. More adrenaline-fuelled action is to be had at Capel Curig (20 minutes), a peaceful mountain village that's home to the Plas-y-Brenin National Outdoor Centre.

Something more sedate? Steer clear of hair-raising Snowdonia activities and instead head for gentler walks at Bodnant Garden (25 minutes) or Conwy Castle (30 minutes).

  • Bodnant Garden (11.6 miles)
  • National Slate Museum (12.2 miles)
