Green Gwynedd countryside

General

  • Peaceful Snowdonia site bordered by woodland and a river
  • A 20-minute drive from Capel Curig and half an hour from Conwy
  • Set on a 42-acre sheep farm; campfires allowed and logs sold on site

Hoping for some holidays close to the high Welsh peaks? Tan Aeldroch Farm is a sprawling Welsh sheep farm with green Gwynedd views right across Snowdonia National Park.

This 42-acre site has a wild feel to it, although the grounds are always well maintained (courtesy of the flocks of live-in lawnmowers that you'll be sharing with). Bordered by the river Lledr on one side and woodland on the other, the farm has plenty of secluded spots, trees to climb and rocks to clamber over. Handily, though, it's within a couple of hundred yards of the A470, opening up many options for off-site jaunts (including trips to the sea, about half an hour's drive away).

The farm's eco-conscious owners have been working to restore the natural balance of this part of the valley since 2003 – help them up by making sure that you leave no trace when settling down here. The facilities at Tan Aeldroch Farm are basic, but you can count on flushing loos and a standpipe. Getting chilly in the evening? Make your own heat by setting up a fire in one of the designated firepits (please bring your own wood). To keep things as peaceful as possible, don't use radios or stereos if hanging by at the pitches, ta.

The nearest bar and food shop are in Dolwyddelan, a couple of villages down the main road (five minutes' drive). You can also catch a train here if arriving without a car and book a taxi to the site.

Please note

This site has no on-site shower facilities.

At least one of the party members must be aged 14 or over.

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

Fires can only be lit in the designated areas.

Stunning location, toilet block needs looking at.10/01/2020

  • Liked: 

    Beautiful location nestled in the foot of a valley. River traversing one side of the campsite with woodland behind that and woodland on the other side. Great Riverside and woodlands walks. Warm welcome and only a few minutes from local amenities. Nice they sell fresh eggs from the farm house and bags of logs even if I think £10 a bag is a bit steap in my opinion.

    Disliked: 

    When you turn up you will see a clear sign saying no admissions after 9 at night, this is by no means true. Vehicle's kept rolling in late in to the night and since it was a free for all for camping spots people had pitched up blocking access to pitches further on to the field's so you had people crawling past back in their vehicle's looking for somewhere to pitch up or park there campervan/caravans. Headlights and vehicle engines detract drastically from the peace and tranquility of your evening camp by the river side. The toilet blocks whilst clean and well kept and set in a lovely stone barn can not keep up with the campsites capacity, the cisterns don't refill fast enough, so people weren't able to flush and several times I walked up there to use the restroom to be mett with toilet bowl brimming ready to overflow.

Local attractions

Coming here to conquer Snowdon? Pen-Y-Pass car park is about half an hour's drive if you're ascending on foot, while the Llanberis station where you can pick up the Snowdon Mountain Railway is also well within range (35 minutes). Make sure to pack sensible clothing if heading out for a hike – any shorts and t-shirts you've brought along can be put to good use on the beach at Llandudno or Colwyn Bay (both 35 minutes).

Up for a trip on the longest zipline this side of the equator? Then make for Zip World Fforest (10 minutes' drive), where there's also a kilometre-long rollercoaster that twists downhill through the trees. More adrenaline-fuelled action is to be had at Capel Curig (20 minutes), a peaceful mountain village that's home to the Plas-y-Brenin National Outdoor Centre.

Something more sedate? Steer clear of hair-raising Snowdonia activities and instead head for gentler walks at Bodnant Garden (25 minutes) or Conwy Castle (30 minutes).
