Sitting pretty at the southernmost point of Snowdonia National Park, there’s really s’no escaping the back-to-nature goodness of Gwerniago Campsite, which also happens to be a working farm...
Whether you want a great location, a cracking public house or a good old-fashioned field where you can light your own campfire (and buy the wood you need on site too), pitching up at Gwerniago will tick plenty of boxes.
Cycling, river walks and an array of outdoorsy activities will entertain around the Dyfi Valley, but the real winners at Gwerniago Campsite are the youngsters (although we’re sure the big kids will enjoy getting stuck in just as much).
The Cool Camping Kids book voted the site one of the top five in the country when it comes to things to see and do for children. From rides on Sophie the pony and chances to help feed the lambs in season, to the wooded play area complete with tree swing, this place is fit for any little explorer.
Strollers and avid hikers alike will be in their element at these rural digs, as will twitchers. Close to the RSPB’s Ynyshir reserve (home of the BBC’s Springwatch in past years), grab your binoculars to spot the red kites overhead and keep a beady eye out for the Dyfi osprey nest which you can spy from the campsite.
As well as the clean and modern facilities on site, which include a shower and loo block with solar-provided hot water (backed up by electric), new wooden footboards and nifty timed lighting to keep in line with the site’s eco-friendly policies, other touches added by the Welsh-speaking farming family owners to make your stay even more comfortable include free access to a small kitchen with a fridge/freezer, washing-up sinks and a phone charger point.
