Pitch by the river

General

  • Quiet riverside spot on a family smallholding in Bryncir
  • Just outside Snowdonia National Park; 10 minutes' drive from the coast
  • Easy access from the A497; pub/restaurant half a mile away

How to sum up Penllystyn Farm? There's a lot to like about this Gwynedd smallholding site, but the three main highlights have got to be the seriously good views, waterside walks and all-round chilled farm vibes. Here you'll be sitting pretty in the small village of Bryncir, just outside Snowdonia National Park and a 10-minute drive from the coast.

Around the 10-acre site are a handful of farm animals along with a small woodland area and a riverside picnic spot, where you can also take a paddle or let the dogs cool off with a dip. Picnics, barbecues and campfires are all encouraged around here, but there’s also a good local pub/restaurant half a mile away if you fancy eating out.

It should be pretty easy to reach the other amenities in the surrounding area, as the farm is just off the speedy A487 main road. Where that road takes you is totally up to you, but one thing's for sure – you won't feel boxed in here. To the east, you have the myriad walks and adventurous activities of Snowdonia, while those who head north will be rewarded with such spots as Caernarfon Castle and Anglesey. Meanwhile, set your sights on the south or west for days out on the spectacular beaches of the Llŷn Peninsula, treks around the wild Wales Coast Path or sightseeing in the pastel-coloured town of Portmeirion.

Please note

This site has no on-site shower facilities.

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

    Beautiful setting, and lovely having sheep, chickens and a horse in the fields. Friendly owners who were welcoming and helpful. Nice amount of space between pitches and felt safe (important as female by myself). Nice cycle path adjacent too was a bonus.

    Really chilled campsite, we were first in the site that day and could pick wherever we wanted. It is just a open field but we needed nothing more. Enjoyed a campfire each night and felt safe. Owners were friendly, and so were the chickens and dogs that lived on the farm!

    Disliked: 

    Only thing I think that would improve it would be a simple shower block, and possibly a bigger sign at the entrance ... we drove past a few times 😳

    Very quiet during our stay , we pitched next to the water and it was lovely. The horse and chickens in the field made our short stay perfect , plenty of space to choose from should you not want to be near the water (eg small children)

Local attractions

If guests in your group are clamouring for castles, send them off to Criccieth (10 minutes' drive), a Cadw-run 13th-century fortress with impressive views over Cardigan Bay. You might also want to call in at Caernarfon Castle (20 minutes) on the southern edge of the Menai Strait, whose mighty walls endured both Owain Glyndwr's sieges and the fiercest fighting of the Civil War.

Once you've seen some of the coast, take to the mountains and Snowdonia, where excellent walks are up for grabs at scenic spots like Llanberis (20 minutes) or Beddgelert (20 minutes). Fancy trading in your walking boots for old-fashioned steam train trips? The Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railway (15 minutes) can sort visitors with whistle-stop tours of the spectacular local landscape.

For something a bit more active, Zip World Slate Caverns (35 minutes) should fit the bill with its zipwires, trampolines and underground play park. Older kids in your crew might be more taken by the action-packed activities laid on at Adventure Parc Snowdonia (an hour), including top-rated watersports like freshwater surfing.
