Beautiful day at Tyn-yr-Onnen

General

  • Family-run farm on the edge of Snowdonia National Park
  • Donkeys, llamas, chickens and more to see on site
  • Well-known walking country with hundreds of acres direct from the farm

Off to Wales to wander? Pitch up at superbly scenic Tyn Yr Onnen Farm, on the edge of Snowdonia National Park between the Moel Eilio and the Elephant Mountains (Mynydd Mawr), for a hiking holiday you won't forget.

Keen-footed wayfarers of all abilities can wander hundreds of acres of heathland direct from the farm including a route right up to Snowdon's peak – although if that thought makes you pale, the Snowdon Mountain Railway with its more relaxed summit accessing is only a few miles away.

Guests also travel to Tyn Yr Onnen Farm and this part of north Wales for the coastline and beaches of the Llŷn Peninsula and the Isle of Anglesey within easy driving distance, and to get down with Wales's mighty heritage at the likes of the National Slate Centre and the castles of Harlech, Caernarfon, Bangor, Beaumaris, all nearby.

On site, llamas, donkeys, pigs, chickens, ducks, turkeys and newborn lambs in spring inhabit the farm for the kids to coo at: Tyn Yr Onnen is a working 180-acre sheep farm managed by the Griffiths family for over 300 years. Pitches are sheltered, with loads of room for barbecues, and campfires are allowed in one of the camping fields.

The kids can entertain themselves at the play area with sandpit, or in the TV room with table tennis and pool table if the weather's a bit misty (parental supervision required at all times, of course), while the grownups should be chuffed at the clean and modern amenities in the refurbished toilet and shower block, with free hot showers, baby changing, disabled facilities and a utility room with washing-up area, campers' fridge and freezer, washing machines and tumble drier.

The local village, Waunfawr, is within walking distance and has a village shop open daily, as well as a pub serving the type of good food you want after a hike. There is also a local bus service which runs between Caernarfon and Beddgelert. Please check online for time tables and fares.

    The stay was perfect, the owners where so accommodating and very well organised! The facilities where clean and nice. We had the best time here even in October! Our last night we wanted to treat ourselves to a log cabin which Gareth sorted out for us, the cabin was lovely and the heater was heavenly after a cold day! Definitely recommend this campsite and will be returning! Great value for money!

    Had an amazing stay at the campsite, the shower and toilet facilities were definitely the cleanest I have experienced at a campsite before. The site owners were extremely helpful and accommodating- our electric hookup wire was too short to reach the tent so we were provided with and extension cable. Fire pit hire was so reasonably priced at £5 for the entire stay with wood not costing much either. Some other campsites only allow wood bought from their site to be used however at tyn yr onnen you can bring your own wood which is great too. The site had wifi but had great data connection and phone signal the entire time anyway! Lovely few days stay.

    Excellent stay and Pitch 27 was perfect.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing major but a couple of things need tweeting.
    No. 1 - no cones or warning signs put on the recently mopped floor in the utility room. Floor was extremely wet and visibility of same poor, Health & Safety issue as I know by an injury I sustained a couple of years ago.
    No. 2 - General information for area poor eg. local bus times.
    Couple of other issues double booking of pitch (Hmmm.) and toilets being incorrectly used ie. complete facilities locked by camper who because shower was booked took it upon themselves to lock the whole block causing stress to my friend who could not enter to use the toilet SO infuriating and stressful for her but neither involved myself so I’ll just forget.
    Please address the two issues.

    Very picturesque and peaceful location in the mountains
    Farm animals on the site you can have a look at - donkeys, sheep, pigs etc
    Toilet and shower blocks very clean
    The pods had a heater and were very spacious!

    Disliked: 

    You can’t park next to the Moel pod like you can with all the other pods, so if you choose this one you must make multiple trips to and from the car park to bring your stuff over

    Spiders in the pods - can these not be hoovered?

Local attractions

The surrounding area has heaps to see and do alongside the rambles, coastlines and castles: if you get a bit stuck for choice, ask the family for their top picks. Within a short drive are Surf Snowdonia in Conway, Zip World in Bethesda (home to Velocity, the fastest zipline in the world and the longest in Europe), the treetop nets of Bounce Below, Zip World Caverns in Blaenau Ffestiniog and GreenWood Forest Park a family adventure park in Y Felinheli.

Rather conveniently, one of Wales's top attractions is less than five miles from Tyn Yr Onnen Farm, the National Slate Museum in Llanberis, where kids can get stuck into the story of the country's mining heritage amid talks and demos, quarrymen's houses and interactive play activities.

Llanberis village is where many set out to climb Snowdon as the Llanberis Path begins here, winding up the least taxing route (we'll point out again that the Snowdon Mountain Railway goes to the top too). The village is also a popular place for adventurous activities like kayaking, coasteering, scuba diving, mountain biking, pony trekking and high ropes courses.

Another popular pull of these parts is the Dinorwig Power Station or Electric Mountain: take an underground tour, set the kids free to play in the den, or test your wits in the Genius Corner puzzle room.

  • Snowdon Mountain Railway (5.3 kilometres)
