Bach Wen: A private space by the stream

General

  • Secluded seaside site on the coast 20 minutes' drive from Caernarfon
  • A 20-minute drive to Snowdonia walks; half an hour to Portmeirion
  • Access to a private beach, with sea views across the site

Ever dreamt of having access to a private beach? Then, book a break at Bach Wen. On the Gwynedd coast just outside the village of Clynnog-Fawr, this secluded seaside spot will make that idea a reality.

It’s just the place for relaxing holidays, with plenty of space for all guests to spread out, and a sizeable paddock for kids and dogs to scamper about. And yes indeed, its own beach area too – simply follow the stream to get to the sands for days of swimming, kayaking, fishing or hikes along the coast path.

Spot the sea while on site too if you prefer to stay put – the views are particularly stunning at sunset, and even better again with a cold beer or glass of wine in hand from the on-site bar (you’ll just need to arrange this a little bit in advance to make sure someone’s around to do the pouring honours). Those of you who’d rather pick up your own food and potions, there’s a little supermarket five minutes’ walk away in the village.

Those cold drinks may well be much welcomed by those aiming to pack plenty of activity into their break here – this location at the top of the Llŷn Peninsula means that there’s much to explore nearby. Head into the nearby Snowdonia National Park for hikes, mountain biking and an adventure park, soak up the history of Caernarfon, 20 minutes’ drive away, or bounce around the numerous beaches of the peninsula.

  • The Glade electric grass and earth tent pitch (riverside)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Loved everything about Bach Wen. Idyllic setting, idyllic stay. Pitched in ‘The Glade’ for 1 week. A stone’s throw from the beach! The pitch has an ehu and a large fridge. The space is huge and has a lovely fire pit area already set out for you, with 2 plastic chairs.
    Showers are fabulous, very clean, and also 3 separate toilets which were also very clean. It is a little bit of a walk from where you have to park but trolleys or wheelbarrows are readily available. An honestly box is set in place to pop cash into it for fire logs, again this is readily available.
    Staff were lovely, very welcoming.
    There is absolutely nothing to dislike about this beautiful gem.

    We LOVED our stay at Bach Wen. Such an idyllic setting! We stayed in the Dandelion pod and we had everything we need. The private access to the beach was great. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. We felt welcome and at home. The facilities were always spotless. We wish we stayed for more than two days! So I think we'll definitely be coming back! :)

    Welcome on arrival, proximity to coast and private access to shore. The 'glade' pitch was nice and secluded with a well marked pathway to it. This pitch gaving its own fridge, elec supply and fire pit was ideal. Toilet and shower facilities were excellent as is the under cover bar area and open space, all overlooking the sea.

Local attractions

It’s quiet at the nearby Trefor beach (10 minutes' drive) and that’s part of what makes it such a fine spot for sea fishing. You might get hooked on all sorts of watersports locally too, particularly in Abersoch (half an hour), where surfing and wakeboarding are some of the ways to get your hair wet or Porthor beach (45 minutes), also known as Whistling Sands for its fab surfing conditions.

Away from the sand, first-timers could put their balance to the test with a lesson on the surf lagoon at Adventure Parc Snowdonia (an hour) too. Of course, there are all sorts of other activities all around the Snowdonia National Park (20 minutes), so when you’re looking for a way to wind things down, perhaps with a lighter walk, you could take in the turrets of Caernarfon Castle (20 minutes) or the smaller Bryn Bras Castle (20 minutes).

Back to the coast, though, fishing villages are a fancy way to spend the way pottering around the shore. Porthdinllaen (20 minutes) has a beach and the popular Tŷ Coch Inn, while Portmeirion (half an hour) is styled upon Italian architecture, with sub-tropical gardens and a splendid spa, shops and eateries.

Must see

  • Caernarfon Castle (8.9 miles)
  • Criccieth Castle (9.3 miles)
  • Welsh Highland Railway (Porthmadog) (11.7 miles)

National Trust

  • Plas Newydd Country House and Gardens (13.8 miles)
