What a view to wake up to

General

  • Farm site with spectacular estuary and peninsula views
  • Equestrian centre on site with pony trekking
  • On the Mawddach Trail

Don’t fret if you’re not sure how to pronounce the name of Bwlchgwyn Farm and Pony Trekking: you’ll be rendered speechless anyway by the pretty special views...

The camping fields on this large livestock farm overlook the Mawddach Estuary and Llyn Peninsula, where the mountains of Snowdonia hit the sea, and the pitches are terraced to make the most of the vista. All the usual amenities are on site: free hot showers, toilets, a washing-up area and a launderette.

The on-site pony trekking includes options for both beginners and expert riders for a tourism advert-worthy ride around the estuary or along the beach. The Mawddach Trail goes right through the site land for walkers and cyclists to experience truly unmissable views, and a footpath leads from the farm up to Blue Lake.

The equestrian centre has horse riding lessons available. Dog training classes are on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and agility classes on Sundays; please enquire on arrival.

Please note

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

Dogs are not allowed in the accommodation units.

    The views from the site were absolutely amazing!
    It was quiet, peaceful, the people we came across were friendly.
    The shower facilities were excellent and not too far from our pitch. - Individual shower units with a lockable door- with sink, mirror, toilet and shower plus plenty of room to get changed. The shower was lovely and warm- couldn't fault it!

    Disliked: 

    Not a dislike about the site as its weather related (more of a tip) The site is rather exposed and you are overlooking the sea so obviously the wind can pick up. We had a problem with our tent on the first night - so just make sure you have plenty of decent tent pegs to make sure you are securely fixed down!

View was amazing, and the Pony Trekking was just down ...05/09/2019

    View was amazing, and the Pony Trekking was just down the lane which was really good. Barmouth is also only half an hour away which was a really nice town to visit. My son loved crab fishing when we went there, and there was some nice eateries. We also went on the ferry and caught the steam train to Fairborough which was a nice little trip.

    Disliked: 

    Due to the size of our tent (6 man) we were told to pitch at the top of a hill. The hill was a bit steep and my tiny car did struggle some days to get up the gravel path. The ground was also really hard for the tent pegs, and due to the strong winds and being on a hill our tent actually came down twice in one day. We decided not to try and put it up a third time and left a day early.
    We also asked for a fire pit and logs, but had to keep going to reception to get these as the owners kept forgetting to bring these to us. They also required cash for these which is not mentioned on their website.

Site is just off the A493 from Dolgellau on the left-hand side, just before Fairbourne. It is a 10-15 minute walk from either Fairbourne or Morfa Mawddach station.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

The Blue Flag sands at Fairbourne, which can be reached via the estuary path, stretch for more than two miles. There’s safe swimming for families, oodles of rock pools at low tide, and a variety of watersports.

Guests can also hop aboard the miniature steam railway here for the short trip to Penrhyn Point, where a dinky passenger ferry runs to the seaside resort of Barmouth.

Walkers will be delighted with the range of rambles in reach: a day clambering up Cadair Idris or exploring the Cregennan Lakes, a bimble to Barmouth featuring a bridge, a bog and a boat, an evening’s meander to the nearby waterfalls at Arthog and Friog, or a wildlife-spotting wander down a former railway line with views of the estuary.

Two-wheelers can get going along the Mawddach Trail which runs from the site – where you can cycle eight miles alongside the edge of the estuary, stopping for a picnic as you go – or the stonking Coed-y-Brenin mountain bike paths.

Other nearby tourist attractions include the surreal Italianate village of Portmeirion, underground adventures at King Arthur’s Labyrinth, treetop fun at Go Ape, the Corris Craft Centre, the Talyllyn steam railway and the Centre of Alternative Technology, which has interactive exhibits on renewable energy, organic gardening and the like.
