General

  • Secluded location close to a pet-friendly beach
  • Spectacular scenery
  • Modern tiled washrooms and wheelchair-accessible wetroom

It's but a mere stroll along a hedgerow-lined footpath to the beach from Garreg Goch Caravan Park in Gywnedd... The beachy stretch here is Black Rock Sands, a pet-friendly space with a wide beach and somewhat spectacular views – along with the vistas all around these parts, from mountains to hills, forests and rivers, to the bays and beaches of the Welsh coast.

Garreg Goch is a family-friendly and well-maintained park where dogs are welcome too (they'll like the coastal and countryside walks direct from the site). It has modern and tiled washrooms with free hot showers and a wheelchair-accessible wetroom and toilet, a washing-up area and a laundry room.

A playground and a small shop selling essentials are also on site.

This site is a member of Coastdale Parks group.

    Pleasant staff

    Disliked: 

    Directions to site not clear. We met other people who like us had followed the directions on the website and ended up in the wrong place.
    Showers were full of daddy long legs - 15-20 in each shower cubicle. Couldn't use them.
    Expensive compared to other sites which were much nicer.

From the manager...

We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us, but we would like to thank you for your comments which we have taken on board and will look into.

Overall convenient, clean and friendly. Expensive ! 29/08/2017

  • Fully-serviced hardstanding touring pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The site is nicely presented and well layed out with plenty of space (grassed area) for each motorhome. The service point incorporates elec. hook up , fresh water and a very useful light as well as a grey water grid. Reception which includes a basics shop was friendly and helpful with no fuss. Amenities were nicely cleaned but small with only two showers each for both M and F. Recycling is spacious and well labelled. Stayed for one overnight en route to Lleyn peninsular.

    Disliked: 

    Not as close to the beach as expected, quite a walk along a muddy path, surrounded by other large caravan sites in both directions. Wifi was not effective. Expensive comparatively!

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Shelagh G. Confirmed

  • Gold 2 bedroom static caravan
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    We were a mixed group, grandmother, son and daughter-in-law, grandson (12) and grand-daughter (11). The site delighted all of us and the caravan was excellent. The van had 2 toilets and a shower, good storage space and was surprisingly spacious. The staff were extremely helpful and pleasant. The shop was well stocked and the laundry was very good. The play area for the children was popular and sociable. Good too was the computer room. Recycling facilities were good. I appreciated the size of the site; in a way it was like a small village, not endless rows of caravans.
    All in all it was a very happy experience and I would definitely recommend it. I should love to return in the future. Thank you to everyone involved!

  • Liked: 

    The friendly reception, the well stocked shop and immaculate toilet block. The pitch was excellent with water and drainage and was level.
    With the amount of rain that fell during our stay the ground drained very quickly.

    Disliked: 

    The location of the pitch next to the children's playground. We were bombarded with flying footballs and my wife was struck by the ball during a BBQ.

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 coastal village of Criccietyh, the harbour town of Porthmadog and the mountain village of Beddgelert are all within a short drive: do stop at this latter for a bowed head at the grave of Gelert, the faithful hound that belonged to Welsh prince Llwelyn (read the tale at the grave, for verily it will make you weep).

As it's Wales, there's a vintage railway or two around too... Both the Ffestiniog Railway and the Welsh Highland Railway end up at Porthmadog, so catch them here going back in the other direction through the mountains and scenery of Snowdonia and to Blaenau Ffestiniog.

There's also the Snowdon Mountain Railway from Llanberis up to Snowdon’s peak, and the Cambrian Line, a collection of five steam railways running from Dovey Junction to Pwllheli, the little Llŷn Peninsula market town with a wide sandy beach.

Within a short drive of Garreg Goch Caravan Park are days out at popular places including Harlech, Pwhelli, Abersoch and Caernaerfon: you won't need it pointed out that the journeys here are of the highly scenic sort too…?
