Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on one pitch.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

In Bryn Crug turn right signposted Talyllyn and follow the road to an island. Turn right signposted 'dead end' and fork left signposted to 'Tynllwyn Caravan Site'. Go past the site and over Rhydronen railway bridge. Go up the hill and turn left down a farm track signposted 'Tyllwyn hen' on a slate sign. Go down the track, over the ford and continue past the barn conversion to the very end. You've reached Little Red Train Camping.
Little Red Train has its own stop on the Talyllyn Railway: just flag the train and it will stop. It can take you to beautiful waterfalls at Dolgoch, to a café and a children's play park at Aberganolwyn, or provide you with easy access to beaches and shops in Tywyn, a fun coastal town with plenty of things to do.
The site is a ten-minute drive to Cader Idris. It is also located above the coastal bike routes to Tywyn and the broad water, and 20 minutes away from Aberdyfi.
Barmouth and the Mawddach estuary are 40 minutes away with a kids' indoor play barn and pottery, along with a spectacular flat bike ride to Dolgellau. The list of things to see and do is endless: just ask the staff at the campsite for ideas.
