General

  • Family-run park between the mountains and the sea
  • In Snowdonia National Park five miles from Harlech
  • Pitches over 12 acres, with 28 acres of woodland and fields to wander

Bored with being boxed in on a campsite? Space, space and more space is the order of the day at Snowdonia's Barcdy Touring Caravan & Camping Park: it's in a secluded and sheltered vale where you'll have 12 acres' worth of camping area to pitch up in, and then another 28 acres of oak woodland and open fields to wander around and spot the wildlife.

Barcdy is a select (and very friendly) family-run park where the owners have seen generations of small and excited campers go free range among these natural surroundings (there's a play area and wifi on site too, but we reckon the sprogs will prefer to roam). The grounds are a wildlife haven where nature spotters of all sizes can see badgers, owls and migratory birds, and loads more walks can be had in the hills leading off from the site.

There's a good pick of pitches among the 12 acres: grass areas for tents, with optional electric hook-up, and hardstanding, all-weather, fully-serviced pitches for tourers and motorhomes. Amenities are kept in tiptop condition and include plenty of showers and loos, dishwashing sinks and a launderette. Shaver points and hairdryers are available too.

Barcdy doesn't have a shop as it prefers to support local businesses: the nearest places for supplies are Harlech four miles away with food shops and newsagent, and Porthmadog five miles away with an Aldi, Lidl, Tesco and several smaller shops.

Please note

Please note that Barcdy is an extremely quiet park so please don't choose us if you have other ideas.

Directions


From Maentwrog, take a left turn to Harlech on the A496. Barcdy is 4 miles on the left.

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

Coastline, castles, caverns, museums, steam railways, sailing, horse riding and hiking are all nearby, as is fishing at the two Tecwyn lakes within walking distance and sea fishing for mackerel and bass from Llandanwg Beach.

For wanderers, the local walks accessible straight from site can have them roaming around Welsh woodlands with wondrous views of the Llyn Peninsula in one direction and Snowdon in the other.

If you're spending the day at Llandanwg, have a walk too across the causeway at low tide to Shell Island, where over two hundred different types of shell including oyster, whelk and cockle are washed up each winter; go from January to June for the best bags.

Delve into days at Harlech, Porthmadog and Barmouth too, all popular pulls on the north Wales coastal trail. Harlech has a beaut beach backed by sand dunes, the famed Royal St David's Golf Club and the even more famed Harlech Castle, scene of the longest siege in Welsh history during the Wars of the Roses. (Wales is of course castle country, so get to Cricieth, Caernarfon and Conwy as well.)

At Porthmadog, it'll quickly become apparent that these parts are also steam railway country: the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway and the Ffestiniog Railway, the oldest narrow gauge railway journey in the world, both start in Porthmadog and the Welsh Highland Railway finishes here. Barmouth, the seaside town with another beaut beach, adjoining estuary and the Mawddach Trail, is about 13 miles to the south.

Also within easy reach, you should count on a day out at decidedly individual Italianate village Portmeirion, the National Slate Museum at Llanberis or Llechwedd Slate Caverns, three more popular north Welsh pulls (take another puffy trip on the Snowdon Mountain Railway from Llanberis up to Snowdon's summit).

You could also up the ante with activity day out at Glasfryn Parc and Greenwood Forest Park, visit King Arthur’s Labyrinth (underground boat trips!) or the Centre for Alternative Technology, both near Machynlleth.
