General

  • Llyn Peninsula site with mountain views
  • Wales Coast Path and Glasfryn Parc activity centre within 10 minutes
  • Shop, playground and games room; 10 minutes' drive from Pwllheli

Soft spot for steam trains? Make tracks for Rhosfawr Caravan and Camping Park and you’ll have three heritage lines to travel, all of them climbing through the fine scenery of Snowdonia National Park.

This family-friendly site in Gwynedd is 10 minutes’ drive from Pwllheli and makes a top base for steam safaris and seaside days, hill walks and castle tours. And when you’ve climbed every mountain (apologies to Julie Andrews…), it’s a spacious spot to stretch out in and soak up the views.

While you’re soaking you can be sure the smaller members of your party are safe: the site’s set back a long way from the main road down a driveway, so there’s ample room for larking about, along with a playground and a games room for indoor antics.

Appetites expanded by all that outdoor activity can soon be satisfied with a stroll over to the shop, which sells basic supplies as well as drinks, ice creams and sweets. If you need more in the way of provisions, there are shops and supermarkets in Pwllheli, and barbecues and campfires are permitted back on site.

Please note

Dogs are not allowed in the accommodation units.

The site caters for families (immediate members) and couples only - bookings from all other forms of groups are not accepted.

Single-sex bookings of 2 or more people (couples and immediate family members excepted) are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

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

A charge of £0.20 per five minutes applies for use of the shower.

Great site , friendly wardens. 05/01/2019

    Rural location perfect for relaxing break , as it was end of December we were the only ones on site besides the camp warden , Anita was there to greet us and had put the heating on in the caravan we were staying in which was great as it was so cold , the caravan has everything needed for a cosy stay with heating in all rooms , caravan is set back from the camping fields which makes it bit more secluded , if you like wildlife there is plenty to see and hear from chickens that are on site to owls, woodpeckers, plenty of other birds spotted and squirrels, as it was winter no on site facilities were open which wasn’t needed anyway but can imagine the site would be bustling in season , all in all a great little site if you want to get away from it all and note there is no WiFi which we didn’t mind , had a lovely four nights total relaxation .

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rhosfaw, 2nights camping 27-29 August. This site was exactly as described. We had a large pitch with our own water and hook up. At around £25 per night Rhosfawr was great value.

    There is a lovely field for smaller children to play on, but we had a lone teenager (help!) who was satisfied because she was able to get mobile data!
    We all did great here with reception (Vodafone/ID(3), this seems important these days.

    At night it was so quiet I thought I had gone deaf! Traffic can be heard from the nearest road during rush hour, but night time was silent. Very good dog field for your furry friends which was large and flat and clean.

    They have all the facilities you need and are spotless; pot washing area, M/F toilets and showers. I only discovered the chemical toilet as we were leaving and sent my husband to have a look, all chrome and shiny and spotless, probably the best disposal I've seen.

    We found Rhosfawr the perfect site for touring the area with Pwllheli and Morfa Nefyn only 5-7 miles either site of the site. We also discovered the beautiful Aberdardon and Porth Iago a short drive down the peninsula. Driving was a joy taking in the breathtaking scenery from this site. So much more to discover and activities close by if you want them.

    The owners were very helpful, friendly and accommodating and enjoyed a chat. They recommended the Arvonia chip shop in Pwllheli (which we used both nights).

    Highly recommend and will definitely stay again.

Local attractions

Active family? Report to Glasfryn Parc (10 minutes' drive) for go-karting and Segway rides, archery, wakeboarding and 10-pin bowling. Those with further energies to burn can take to the waters at Pwllheli for kayaking, windsurfing and paddleboarding or zipwire their way through ZipWorld Slate Caverns (45 minutes) finishing off with bounces on the underground trampolines and feats of daring on the caverns’ high ropes.

It doesn’t have to be all busy busy on the beach though: Pwllheli’s wide sands make a grand venue for long seaside walks and Barmouth an hour away is a 'bucket and spade and donkey ride' sort of place with sea trips and estuary cruises for those who just like to sit.

Brought your boots? It’s a 10-minute drive to Nefyn, where you can link up with the Wales Coast Path, and 40 minutes to National Trust-protected Craflwyn and Beddgelert for trails through the Aberglaslyn Pass, wanders to Cwm Llan waterfall and multi-use paths around the wildlife-filled shores of Llyn Dinas lake.

Whether you take one train into the hills or tick off the lot, a steam ride is a must-do: the puffers of the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railway lines depart Porthmadog (25 minutes) for both Caernarfon and Blaenau Ffestiniog, while coal-fired trips to the sometimes snowy top of Mount Snowdon leave from Llanberis (45 minutes).

Must see

  • Criccieth Castle (8.5 miles)
  • Welsh Highland Railway (Porthmadog) (12.6 miles)
  • Ffestiniog Railway (12.8 miles)

National Trust

  • Plas yn Rhiw (10.6 miles)
  • Plas Newydd Country House and Gardens (20.9 miles)
