- Family-run campsite in Gwynedd
- In a quiet village four to six miles' drive from the beach
- Amenities block with three showers and three toilets
Centrally located on the Llŷn Peninsula is a likely location to be remotely and peacefully set for a Welsh countryside stay, which is what's offer at small and family-run Criw Touring Caravan and Camp Site, in the quiet village of Bryncroes and a short drive from miles of several safe and sandy beaches.
Country walks, horse trekking, sailing, fishing, climbing, cycling and more are all easily accessed in the countryside all around, and Snowdonia National Park is within about an hour's drive. If you're more of a seaside sort, Criw is six miles from Aberdaron and ten 10 from Pwllheli.
The site has an amenities block with three showers and three toilets; a fresh water supply; dishwashing facilities and a chemical disposal point. Satellite TV and free wifi are available, but please note that because of the site's peacefully remote location, the wifi signal is limited and you should bring a receiver for your TV if you want to use it.
Criw is about 20 minutes' walk via a quiet country lane from its local village of Sarn, where you#ll find a couple of decent pubs (one serving food), a post office/garage, a restaurant/tearoom, and the village shop to sort supplies to bring back for the barbie.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

From the manager...
Your comment is a breath of fresh air. So unlike the last review, where those sad people go around campsites taking photos of toilets. How low can people get. Many thanks for your kindness. And it's still blinking raining. Hope to see you again. All the best.
Not family friendly accepts large rowdy groups and allows loud music
From the manager...
I couldn't agree with you more. It's an absolute disgrace. Should close the place down. Keep well clear. It's a CAMPSITE. for goodness sake. where people of all ages come and ENJOY themselves. If you want better, PAY FOR IT. Get a life.

From Pwllheli, take the A499 towards Abersoch/Llanbedrog. At Llanbedrog, turn off the A499 onto the B4413 signposted for Aberdaron. Continue along this road for approximately 5 miles, through the villages of Botwnnog and Sarn. One mile from Sarn towards Aberdaron, turn left for Bryncroes (signposted). Criw is the first property on the left as you enter the village.
The main town on the peninsula, Pwllheli, is about 20 scenic minutes away by car and comes with beaut sandy beaches, a leisure centre, marina, cinema, supermarkets, bus depot and a railway station, as well as an 18-hole golf course and the means to arrange both fishing and boating.
Fishing, boating and a golf course of the same size are at neighbouring Abersoch too, also within a short drive. It's a popular place with younger holidaymakers, who come for jetskiing, powerboat racing, wakeboarding and other watersports; the famed Wakestock Festival is held here annually.
This is also spectacular hiking land, so ditch the car for a day and have a go at the Llŷn Coastal Path stretch from Pwllheli to Abersoch in one direction and Pwllheli to Criccieth – and then on to Porthmadog – in the other.
