Bird Rock Campsite: The river Dysynni bordering the site

General

  • Relaxed family-run working farm site in Snowdonia National Park
  • Excellent area for hillwalking; two seaside resorts within 10 miles
  • Bordered by a river; nearest pub four miles away in Bryncrug

Rock up to this place for a pitch among stunning Welsh countryside: the site is set in Snowdonia National Park and lies six miles outside the seaside resort of Tywyn on the Cardigan Bay coast.

Spectacularly located under the site’s namesake of Craig yr Aderyn or Bird Rock, and with splendid views of the surrounding Cadair Idris massif and open countryside, Bird Rock Campsite is a quiet and relaxed family-run working farm, spaciously laid out over four grassy acres.

As this site is scenically set in national parkland, there’s plenty of handsome countryside to roam around, as well as waymarked walking trails to tramp. The accommodation field is bordered by a little river that guests can idle beside, wade in and cast a rod into. There's no wifi or mobile phone signal here either… all the better for soaking up the peace and quiet…

The site is consistently hailed by previous guests as being kept immaculately clean, and the owners oft lauded for their friendly and accommodating approach. For freshening up before or after your days of sightseeing and outdoorsy action, showers are available to use for a small fee, and a kettle and a washing machine are available over in the washing-up area for making hot drinks and sorting grubby togs. Also on site are Elsan waste points and electric hook-ups.

If you need to keep supplies topped up for evening campfires, the nearest supermarket is around six miles away in Tywyn, and a village shop lies a little closer for basic supplies. Plenty of good local pubs serving food are around too; the nearest is four miles away in Bryncrug.

Please note

A charge of £0.50 applies for the use of the shower.

The roads to the farm are made up of narrow country lanes, so can be tricky to access for those with bigger vehicles.

As a river is on site, children must be supervised at all times.

Cold water is free but there is a 20p charge for hot water in the taps.

Stunning scenery and very peaceful20/09/2021

  • Liked: 

    Stayed in field used as seasonal pitches, although the toilets were a bit dated they were clean functional, you do have to pay for hot water but it’s only 20p for the hand wash basin and 50p for the shower but you do get a good 10 mins or so and it’s lovely and hot.
    There are some stunning scenery around you of the mountains and the stream that runs through the site and very peaceful, with the occasional mooing from the Cows, which can only be expected from staying on a working farm.

    Disliked: 

    There is absolutely no mobile phone signal here, suppose it’s great if you want the peace and quiet

    Excellent location, surrounded by beautiful views. Lovely river. We did some really nice walks in the area and went into Tywyn beach. The campsite was really well looked after. The kitchen was so useful. There are more than enough showers and toilets including accessible toilet and shower. The toilets and sinks were spotless. Rhian cleans and disinfects the whole area every day. There are some cobwebs and a few crane flies, but this is a working farm and I do not understand previous comments about the facilities as we found them excellent standard. I did not mind paying a supplement for hot water as it keeps the pitch prices down. We liked that we could pitch anywhere and were for the most part left alone. We would happily return. Thank you Rhian for a lovely week.

    This is one of the most picturesque campsites I have ever visited - and I have travelled extensively the world over! CaderIdris is a wonderful backdrop and the whole of this little valley has a charming atmosphere - quiet and secluded, beautifully green with a long wonderful history.

    Lovely campsite with beautiful views, little stream at the back of our tent where we could build our own campfire and enjoy the peace and quiet with the sounds of the water. Such a relaxing visit. Kitchen area with the cleanest showers and toilets blocks. Owners made us very welcome and will do their best to accommodate. Very friendly working dog too. We watched him round the sheep up. Loved every minute of our stay and will be booking again. 15 minute drive to Tywyn and 20 mins to seafront.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

The site’s spectacular Snowdonia National Park setting among the Cadair Idris massif means that scenic hill walks are on the menu, as well as cycling and mountain biking around Cregennan Lakes or along the Mawddach Trail.

For sitting back and admiring Welsh seaside scenes, take the coastal line of the Talyllyn Railway from the seaside resort of Tywyn, six miles from base, to Shrewsbury or in the other direction to Porthmadog. If you’d rather stay put on the sands or try your hand at surfing, Tywyn's beach and waves are much recommended.

For varied days off base, the subterranean slate cavern zipwiring park at Blaenau Ffestiniog is well worth the hour’s drive to, or closer to home there’s a laser shooting centre in Tywyn. An alternative (and rather more sedate) option is the Centre for Alternative Technology in Corris, where visitors can learn all about how to live a more sustainable life.

Must see

  • Rheilffordd Talyllyn Railway (6.1 miles)
  • MOMA Wales - Y Tabernacl (7.3 miles)
  • CADW - Harlech Castle (15.0 miles)

National Trust
