Maes Tywyn Campsite: View from the site

General

  • Basic, clean site 10 minutes' walk from Newborough village
  • An hour's walk from Newborough beach and Ynys Llanddwyn
  • Great views of Snowdonia and dark skies for nighttime stargazing

What a spot – family-run Isle of Anglesey site Maes Tywyn Campsite is in a splendid setting with peaceful surrounds, easy access to walks and beaches, and village amenities less than a mile away.

This nifty location is a 10-minute trot from the little village of Newborough (or Niwbwrch if you’re practising your Welsh lingo) – there’s a pavement all the way along the road so you should have a safe enough saunter to the village’s café, chip shop, convenience store or pub. If you’d like your eats even closer you can either light up a barbie or meander along to the Michelin-starred restaurant that happens to be a mere five minutes away.

Getting out to the rest of the island is a cinch from here: there are plenty of places to walk in the surrounds (perennial fave spot Ynys Llanddwyn is an hour away on foot), and you can get to even the most far-flung beaches with a drive of half an hour or so. Fancy ditching the car for a day? There’s a bus stop a short walk away for buses to Bangor and beyond.

Back at base, peaceful times are very much encouraged – there’s heaps of space to chill out here with gorgeous views towards Snowdonia by day and a fab array of stars overhead after dark (clouds permitting, of course). There’s also a playground for the small sorts to scamper about in; and it’s been cleverly kitted out with benches for restful parental supervision.

    Great location close to the forest and the beach. Quiet campsite with grass kept short so you don't get wet feet! Jane and Terry were really welcoming, friendly and genuine from the start - we didn't have any issues, but if we had, we could have talked to them about it.

    The addition of a kettle, fridge and USB chargers for your phone shows that this campsite just goes above and beyond. The showers and toilets were great, and the washing up facilities were undercover and always clean.

    We were amazed about the clean and top-spot toilets and showers!Also there is everything you can wish for as a camper and more; from toilet paper to hand sanitiser, from usb-charging and wifi to fridge, microwave and water kettle; from washing up liquid, warm water and sponge to clean your dishes; as well as you can do BBQ or lit a campfire....the pitches are big and marked, the campsite is located in walking distance (45minutes) to the sandy beaches and gives you nice view to the hills ( weather permitting).... I am sure we will come back more often...:-))

    Jane and Terry made us (couple & border collie dog) feel very welcome at their beautiful campsite. It had everything which we could have needed, including fridges to store food on the warmer days and charging points. The pitch sizes are very generous with great views. The toilet/shower facilities were always clean. We are counting down the days already to return next year.

Directions

Local attractions

If you only see one attraction on Anglesey it really must be Ynys Llanddwyn, the little rocky outcrop named after the Welsh patron saint of lovers. The best way to get there from the site is to head out on foot, walking to the lighthouse and ruined chapel through the Newborough Forest. Pack a picnic to scoff on next-door Newborough beach, and perhaps bring binoculars in case any seals are swimming in the area.

Should you have a bit longer (and really you should), there’s plenty more to keep you busy around the island. Family days out include pony rides and animal feeding frenzies at Foel Farm (10 minutes’ drive), getting to know the sea-dwelling critters at Anglesey Sea Zoo (10 minutes) and viewing the vintage vehicles at Tacla Taid Anglesey Transport Museum (five minutes).

If you’ve a head for history, take days out at Beaumaris Castle (25 minutes), Plas Newydd House and Gardens (15 minutes) or the ruins of Aberlleiniog Castle (half an hour), or scooch back over to the mainland to the castles in Caernarfon (25 minutes), Conwy (35 minutes) and Criccieth (50 minutes).

Must see

  • Caernarfon Castle (3.2 miles)
  • Snowdon Mountain Railway (10.0 miles)
  • National Slate Museum (10.0 miles)

National Trust

  • Plas Newydd Country House and Gardens (6.1 miles)
  • Ty^ Mawr Wybrnant (22.3 miles)
