- 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 Llŷn Peninsula, where the mountains of Snowdonia hit the sea, and the pitches are terraced to make the most of the panoramic vista. All the usual amenities 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, cyclists and truly unmissable views, and a footpath leads from the farm up to Blue Lake.
The equestrian centre has horse riding lessons available with a qualified BHSAI instructor. Dog training classes are on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and agility classes on Sundays; please enquire on arrival.

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.
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 (Fairbourne is particularly renowned for windsurfing, but all sorts of small craft rumble off its ramp).
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 exploring the Cadair Idris mountains or the Cregennan Lakes, a bumble 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.
