Gardens around the site

General

  • Small Llyn Peninsula site less than five minutes' walk from the coast
  • Portmeirion and Snowdonia National Park within a half-hour drive
  • Direct access to a sandy beach, the coast path and seaside cycle path

They certainly deliver on what they promise in their name at Sŵn y Don Caravan Park… and in case your Welsh lingo isn’t up to much, what this Gwynedd site promises is ‘the sound of the wave’. Indeed, there’s no missing the call of the sea here, because this peaceful park is right by the Llyn Peninsula coast, less than five minutes’ walk from the coast path and a sandy beach.

Also just down by the beach is a bike path for pedalling along to Pwllheli or Porthmadog; if you’d rather drive, they’re about 10 minutes and 15 minutes away respectively. And if you’re pottering about by public transport, hail a bus from the stop five minutes’ stroll away.

This is a mighty chilled-out spot, with space for dogs and kids to scamper about and for guests to gather around barbecues. That it’s a fine place to relax of an evening will be particularly excellent news for folk planning to pack their schedules with activities and attractions – there are stacks of things to do in this part of the world, both on the peninsula and back on the mainland, so get set for days of beaches, castles and Snowdonia strolls… and, if you’re feeling brave, a screaming ride along the world’s longest zipwire…

No doubt such travels will result in a bit of a build-up of sand and/or mud about your person, so it’s pleasing to note that you can hose that all off at the site’s smart shower block, which has an accessible wetroom and underfloor heating to ensure happy feet.

    Very friendly and helpful owners who were keen and happy to help.
    Location - sea view and 5 minute walk to the beach and coastal path.
    Not too big.
    Hot showers and warm toilet block.
    Quiet site.
    Small play area adequate for young children
    Space for ball games

    Disliked: 

    A couple of minor issues as this was the first weekend they were open, but am sure these will be sorted soon - would suggest putting a sign at the roundabout leading to the site as it just has a dead end sign and no indication that the site is there and so seems a bit of a risk to go down the single track road with a caravan on! The train line is very close to the pitches but they are slow trains and not too frequent.

    The site is clean and safe. The toilets and shower we're newly done, nice and warm. Shower was lovely and hot and they we're always clean. This was our first time out in the Motorhome so we we're complete novices, Arthur the owner explained a few things to me like - waste pipe and water pipes when we got there and we realised we had neither of these things!! Arthur went out of his way to find some piping for us and fixed a temporary pipe to our waste outlet to connect to the drain. Excellent first time stay, felt welcome and safe with the kids. It's right next to a lovely beach and we caught the local bus into Pwllheli for the day. Our eldest was free to ride up and down the park on her bike and there's alovely little play area there.

Local attractions

Once you’ve sat on the sandy beach and strolled on the Wales Coast Path, it’s worth paying a visit to Pwllheli (10 minutes’ drive), where you can board boats for fishing days or sea-life safaris (or just lounge on another fab beach if you prefer…) For a bit more water-based activity, get along to Glasfryn Parc (10 minutes), for wakeboarding sessions or to keep dry with go-karting and Segway rides.

Heading back to the mainland, you’ll hit the Snowdonia National Park with a drive of 20 minutes or so – head up here for hikes, mountain bike trails, Snowdon climbs and somewhat less strenuous scenic rides on the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railway from Porthmadog (15 minutes). Intrigued by that world-beating zipline? It’s 50 minutes away at Penrhyn Quarry; slightly shorter versions can be found at Zip World Slate Caverns (35 minutes), along with an underground trampoline park.

While on the mainland, seek out the swish Italianate village of Portmeirion (25 minutes) and the castles at Criccieth (10 minutes) and Harlech (35 minutes).

Must see

  • Criccieth Castle (3.6 miles)
