General

  • Family-friendly smallholding in a rural location on the Llŷn Peninsula
  • Spectacular views
  • Lots of open space for kids to play

Get back to nature among spectacular surroundings with a stay at Gwynedd's Rhos Y Foel, in the midst of the Llŷn Peninsula a short drive from more lush landscapes at Snowdonia National Park.

Set with views towards the rocky peak of Moelypenmaen, Rhos Y Foel is a small and family-friendly site, with a wide swathe of open space on which the kids can let loose. Well-behaved dogs are welcome.

Rhos Y Foel is a level and almost completely flat site – no uncomfy bumpy groundsheet nights here – and has a facilities block with hot running water; a small charge applies for the use of the showers.

Barbecues and campfires in firepits are allowed: for supplies, the local village is Boduan and the shops and services of market town Pwllheli are a few miles away.

Amazing views. Good place to use if it's an overnight stop. . 15/08/2017

  • Liked: 

    Good value for money. It's pretty basic, but it's good for a overnight stop.

    Disliked: 

    Having to be timed to have a shower. They have a sign up saying that hard balls i.e footballs aren't allowed and only use soft balls. But during my stay I had seen at least two family groups with them. Not nice when you have a lot of space for the kids but they can't play with them. Tent pitches aren't level if you wish to have a electric hook up. Needs to have better signage from the roads either side as it's hidden up a narrow track. We managed to miss the turn on a couple of occasions.

Local attractions

As you'll know if you've ever had the sense to go there, the Llŷn Peninsula is lovely land, with sea all around as it jabs 30 miles into the Irish Sea from northwest Wales's tip. Rhos Y Foel is in excellent setting to get to the best of its hills and coast in the site surrounds, and to explore the mountains and other highlights of Snowdonia a short drive away.

Around the peninsula, have seaside days at resorts like Abersoch, Nefyn, Morfa Nefyn and Pwllheli, all just a few miles away, or get active with afternoons among the wakeboarding, bowling, quad biking, go karting and fishing of Glasfryn Parc nearby at Pwllheli; soft play, food, a farm shop and a bar are at this latter as well. Paintball is nearby if you want to take things up a notch too.

Another top local option for families is the award-winning GreenWood Forest Park, where you can paddle among trees, make things work at the world's only people-powered rollercoaster, see a live show, meet the animals or try den building and archery. More animal meeting is at Dwyfor Rabbit Farm, or drive to the foot of Snowdonia for a more active family day out at Gypsy Wood.

The famed 18-hole Nefyn & District Golf Club at Porth Dinllaen is only a few minutes from the site.
