Aerial view of site

General

  • Family-friendly smallholding in a rural location on the Llyn Peninsula
  • Spectacular views towards the peak of Moelypenmaen
  • 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.

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.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

    The site and facilities were clean, and there was plenty of space between pitches.
    Sam and George are lovely and had tons of advice for us about the best times and places to see what we wanted to so we could get the most out of our stay.
    Unfortunately the weather was against us and we only stayed one night of the three we booked. (it was the right choice, the motorways home were awful) we hope to be back towards summer though.

    The site was extremely clean and tidy. There was plenty of space between each van. Facilities were great with washing machine, dryer and freezer and the bonus was the showers were free!!!! The grass was cut and collected which meant a cleaner van. And the views were to die for.

Excellent site with clean facilities, friendly staff04/09/2019

  • Liked: 

    The facilities were the best I've ever experienced at a camp site. They were clean, modern and well maintained. The camp site owners were great hosts and were willing to answer any questions we had and help out in any way. The campsite allowed fires as long as they were in a fire pit which is entirely reasonable; most campsites don't allow this at all so we were really pleasantly surprised by this and it made the trip much easier and more enjoyable. The laid back but responsible attitude made for an all round great stay and we will definitely be recommending the site to friends and family and hope to return in the future.

Local attractions

As you'll know if you've ever had the sense to go there, the Llyn Peninsula is lovely land, with sea all around as it jabs 30 miles into the Irish Sea from north-west 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.

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.
