General

  • Farm site with spectacular estuary and peninsula views
  • Equestrian centre on site with pony trekking
  • On the Mawddach Trail

Don’t fret if you’re not sure how to pronounce the name of Bwlchgwyn Farm and Pony Trekking: you’ll be rendered speechless anyway by the pretty special views…

The pitches on this large livestock farm overlook the Mawddach Estuary and Llŷn Peninsula, where the mountains of Snowdonia hit the sea, and the pitches are terraced to make the most of the vista. All the usual amenities are on site: free hot showers, toilets, a washing-up area and a launderette.

The on-site pony trekking includes options for both beginners and expert riders for a tourism advert-worthy ride around the estuary or along the beach. The Mawddach Trail goes right through the site grounds for walkers and cyclists to experience truly unmissable views, and a footpath leads from the farm up to Blue Lake.

The equestrian centre has horse riding lessons available. Dog training classes are on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and agility classes on Sundays; please enquire on arrival.

Fantastic Staff, Brilliant Site, Great Pitches and Facilities09/29/2020

    The site was the best we have visited so far this year, we were fortunate enough to be camping on Horseshoe 3 pitch which had the best views of Barmouth and the sea overlooking the marshlands and the surrounding areas. The shower block was great and clean, great individual cubicles with toilets, staff were really friendly and so helpful lending us extensions for our hook up, providing fire pit for us and the necessary logs etc to keep us warm for our stay, they could not do enough for us. the Pony Trekking which is just below the site is fantastic, the staff were great and the trek was out of this world, 2 hours across the beach and surrounding areas. We will be coming back for years to come. The pitches are large and clean and provide the most amazing views, water and electrical hook up are close and easy to reach. The site is well run and the other campers were friendly and respectful to each other. i can not say how good this site is, amazing

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

The Blue Flag sands at Fairbourne, which can be reached via the estuary path, stretch for more than two miles. There’s safe swimming for families, oodles of rock pools at low tide, and a variety of watersports. Guests can also hop aboard the miniature steam railway here for the short trip to Penrhyn Point, where a dinky passenger ferry runs to the seaside resort of Barmouth.

Walkers should be delighted with the range of rambles in reach: perhaps a day clambering up Cadair Idris or exploring the Cregennan Lakes, a bimble to Barmouth featuring a bridge, a bog and a boat, an evening’s meander to the nearby waterfalls at Arthog and Friog, or a wildlife-spotting wander down a former railway line with views of the estuary.

Two-wheelers can get going along the Mawddach Trail which runs from the site – where you can cycle eight miles alongside the edge of the estuary, stopping for a picnic as you go – or the stonking Coed-y-Brenin mountain bike paths.

Other nearby tourist attractions include the surreal Italianate village of Portmeirion, underground adventures at King Arthur’s Labyrinth, treetop fun at Go Ape, the Corris Craft Centre, the Talyllyn steam railway and the Centre of Alternative Technology, which has interactive exhibits on renewable energy, organic gardening and the like.
