- Nearly-wild camping... but with extras
- Summer bar with its own ale and games room
- Free brown trout fishing in the site river
Non-campers who smugly say to you that camping is about roughing it should be pointed towards this site (forcibly, if need be).
Glan Ceirw in Denbighshire is ‘nearly wild’ Welsh camping at its very peak (Wales has a lot of peaks) – riverside camping on the edge of Snowdonia National Park, but with the very mod-dest of mod cons for all guests. You’ll even be able to cast off for brown trout – free and with no licence required – in Glan Ceirw’s own river; just bring along your fishing equipment.
Owners Pauline and Martin see no reason why tent campers shouldn't be treated to some homely treats (huzzah), so Glan Ceirw counts among its facilities free high speed wifi and a snug summer bar – with its own exclusive ale – adjoining a games room with pool table and football table.
Glan Ceirw is in a valley location between the towns of Corwen and Betws-y-Coed, with mountain bike trails, cycle routes, peak scaling, forest walking and Bala Lake all nearby. Amenities including toilets, showers and a launderette are maintained to spotless standards, and the grounds are kept immaculate to encourage local wildlife (and small human guests).
Glan Ceirw has no food shop on site, but a tasty farmers’ market is nearby where you can pick homemade and organic produce. You could even bring a jar of jam back for the non-camping cynic…

Bala Lake, Betws-y-Coed, Coed Llandegla Forest and Snowdonia National Park are all nearby, for enough activities of all sorts to keep you busy for weeks.
Start off among at the Conwy Valley Railway Museum’s miniature railway at Betws-y-Coed, then take a riverside walk along the Llugwy and on to the spectacular Swallow Falls via the River Conwy; if you don’t fancy the walk, settle down at the picnic areas overlooking the Pont-y-Pair Falls in the centre of the village.
Activity centres are within easy driving distance, like the one at Wales’s biggest body of water, Bala Lake, which has a huge range of outdoor options including whitewater rafting, zorbing and canoeing.
On land, horse riding, quad biking and dry slope skiing are all available, or you could follow in the footsteps of thousands (millions?) and scale some of the peaks of Snowdonia (promise yourself a picnic and a Glan Ceirw ale at the top).
If it’s heritage (and a rest) you’re after, two vintage steam railways are nearby – one at Bala and one at Llangollen – while in the national park the kids can dig into Welsh mining history with trips to Blaenau Ffestiniog’s Llechwedd Slate Cavern and the National Slate Museum.
