General

  • Set in the lush Cwm Bychan valley between Harlech and Barmouth
  • Peaceful setting with direct access to the Ardudwy Way
  • Five-acre site with loads of open space for play

‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,’ some folk say. On the other hand, some other folk think, why not constantly improve an already winning formula? No prizes for guessing which of these two philosophies the genial folks at Dinas Caravan Park and Camping in Gwynedd subscribe to… having made their popular site even better by adding a canoe hire available on the park’s own private lake (or just bring your own inflatable boat to bob about in).

Dinas is set in the lush Cwm Bychan valley between Harlech and Barmouth and is a peaceful park covering five acres. Campfires are allowed and metal fireboxes are also available for a small fee; you can buy wood on site (please don’t bring your own or gather firewood from around the park).

Kids will love swinging in the trees at Dinas – no, not Tarzan-like but on the tree swings – and there’s loads of open space for ball games and general wheeling about as well as scope to burrow into dens among the woodland.

Other facilities at this always-improving site include a refurbished toilet block with free hot showers, a launderette with new coin-operated tumble dryer, covered dishwashing sinks and a freezer for ice packs. If you manage to venture off site, the staff can supply leaflets on the many walking trails round and about; there are ancient oak woodlands within two minutes of the park, and beaches within a few miles.

    We really loved everything about Dinas! The location, the fact it's full of families but still quiet and relaxing, having campfires, beautiful stars at night and the sound of the river. It's amenities are spot on, clean everyday, the best about it though is the owner! She made us laugh and feel welcome straight away! Thank you! Xxxxx

Directions


The grid reference for Dinas Caravan Park and Campsite is 611290. Please note that many of the on-line post code locators and satnav systems give incorrect locations for Dinas postcode LL45 2PH and as a result you will be taken on a long detour to the wrong location along a windy single lane track with many gates to open and close, therefore please use the directions given above. The Ordnance Survey maps show the location of Dinas correctly.

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 area around Dinas is tramping terrain: this section of north Wales is riddled with walks for all abilities including the Wales Coastal Path. Dinas is also the only local site with direct access to the new Ardudwy Way, a 23-mile tramp between Barmouth and Llandecwyn with sea and mountain views.

Llandanwg beach is under three miles away; this sheltered part of shore can land anglers mackerel, flatfish and bass and is popular with other watery types for windsurfing and kayaking. And it’s probably the only beach in the world with a 13th-century church hidden among its sand dunes...

To the north of the beach on Tremadog Bay seaside town of Harlech with medieval Harlech Castle. The castle is crammed with history and was the site of the longest siege in British history during the Wars of the Roses; be sure and lustily sing ‘Men of Harlech’ as you stomp around.

At nearby Barmouth, catch a pedestrian ferry at the quay and join up with the narrow-gauge Fairbourne & Barmouth Railway at Barmouth ferry station for a two-mile trip through top Snowdonia scenery.

Must see

  • CADW - Harlech Castle (2.4 miles)
  • Portmeirion Gardens (5.4 miles)
  • Ffestiniog Railway (6.5 miles)

National Trust

  • Ty^ Mawr Wybrnant (17.5 miles)
