General

  • 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.

Please note

A charge of £1 applies for the use of shower.

Electricity is metered on site at 20p per kwH and must be paid at checkout.

Basic facilities... cheap 02/06/2016

  • Liked: 

    That it wasn't big... field was flat... friendly owners.

    Disliked: 

    The walk to the toilets and showers ... basic facilities and the toilets and shower.

    Not easily sign posted.

    Stayed it was in Pwllheli but it is another 40mins away from pwhelli and actually only a few miles from Aberdaron.

From the manager...

If you would have bothered to check the location of the site on Pitch-up map, it states quite clearly that we are NOT in Pwllheli. We are 10 miles from Pwllheli, and 6 miles from Aberdaron. Centrally located on the peninsula.I do agree with the walk from the tent area to the facilities. It's approx. 90 mtrs. A young couple like yourselves could sprint it in a minute..

  • Liked: 

    nice flat ground, lovely views of countryside, helpful owner.

    Disliked: 

    no phone or television signal although owner lent us a sky box and dish but still had bad picture at times. toilet and shower blocks were basic and not very clean ie large cobwebs above doors, I could have done a lot to improve these without loads of money spent, always lots of toilet paper but no paper towels.lots of driving to see things and to shop.

From the manager...

I hadn't realized how unappreciative some people can be.That's the last time I'll lend a receiver to a customer.As for the cobwebs. Maybe you didn't know that a cobweb can be woven in a matter of minutes. From today, this site is on COBWEB ALERT. Towels!!! I advertize a campsite, not a 5 star hotel. I'm sorry about the driving bit. What do you expect on a peninsula.It takes all sorts.

Perfect for something out of the way and quiet 26/07/2016

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Dan W. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

  • 3 bedroom static caravan (family)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    It was a remote and quiet location, but close enough that an hours trip in the car gets to lots of attractions or other things to do.

    It was a great price for a large caravan and base from which to explore North West Wales.

    Straight forward and friendly owner.

    It's just as it says it is.

    Bring your own sheets, pillowcases and duvet covers

    Disliked: 

    No 3G signal for my mobile network, but that's to be expected. Good signal in the main towns which weren't so far away.

From the manager...

Hi Dan and family. Hope you arrived home safely.Thank you very much for your kind review.Every positive review helps a lot in this game.By the way, you have the most well behaved children.HThanks once again.

    The pitches are spot on plenty of room we had our awning up and still had room for car and toys etc outside the van. views are spectacular from the vantage point we had especially on a nice day. showers & toilets are basic but very clean I take my hat off to Ron and his wife they are always there if required and nothing is to much trouble.
    some fantastic beaches are nearby as as well abersoch which is a short car journey aberdaran just 10 mins away the closest village is sarn 5 mins away very decent butchers for your bbq requirements and there is a pub up the hill in sarn called the ty newydd proper home cooked meals at a very reasonable price and highly recommend the chicken curry.
    Will be returning to this Hidden gem of a site as soon as I can loved it.

Perfect stay, in a lovely area, friendly owners and clean facilities. 10/08/2016

  • 3 bedroom static caravan (family)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    We were a family of 5, staying in the static caravan, 2 of the kids being 14. The caravan was quite big, plenty of space to relax in the livingroom/dining area on a evening. All the kitchen amenities you would need for a week away, decent sized shower, a nice sized veranda outside to relax on a sunny day and plenty of storage all through the caravan. We basically used the caravan as a base camp and went out exploring every day. The site is 5 miles from a gorgeous beach called Aberdaron, and also close by to 8/9 other beaches/coves. Only an hours drive from Snowdonia and an hour and 15 from Anglesey, plenty of fun days out! The site itself looked very clean/tidy, had all the facilities you needed, wasn't crowded, plenty of space and on a clear day some lovely countryside views. Overall good value for money, as all other statics we looked at in the area were double the price. The couple who manage the site, were so incredibly welcoming, genuinely lovely couple and happy to help, if needed. We would definitely stay here again and are already planning our next trip there :)

Great value for money.... 27/08/2016

  • Liked: 

    The staff were very laid back, very understanding about me having to arrive a day later than booked. The facilities I felt were adequate for the site and the price you pay, always clean and tidy. Plenty of nearby beaches and places to go with just a short car journey. The site was peacefully quiet set in the lovely Welsh countryside.

    Disliked: 

    I wouldn't necessarily say this is a dislike but phone signal, 3/4g on site is almost non existent and WiFi poor ..... But what do you expect when in the Welsh countryside and for such a great price too. I managed to find one spot with signal so just placed my phone there if I needed to get in contact or made use of signal elsewhere while visiting places in the day haha.

Local attractions

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.

Must see

  • Criccieth Castle (17.4 miles)
