Cefn Coed: Secluded personal pitches

General

  • Simple pitches on a peaceful 75-acre historic farm estate
  • Within the Snowdonia National Park, 10 minutes' drive from Dolgellau
  • Easy access to the Mawddach Trail and local walking/bike trails

Spacious pitches… seaside strolls… Snowdonia National Park… if such phrases fill your heart with glee, you should be pretty content at Cefn Coed. This spacious site is in a gorgeous Gwynedd location, within the national park and about 10 minutes’ drive from both the market town of Dolgellau and the coast at Fairbourne.

If you’ve come to north Wales for the scenery, you should be pleased with your lot here: it’s in a sheltered valley of ancient oak woodlands, close to where the slopes of Cadair Idris roll down to the banks of the Mawddach Estuary. The site is part of a historic Welsh farm estate that now covers a splendid 75 acres of farmland and forest (if you want peace, this is the place – the nearest neighbours are almost a mile away).

It’s also a fab spot to be in if you’re looking to get out and about: miles of walking, cycling and riding paths are easily accessible, including the famed Mawddach Trail (which you can follow all the way to Dolgellau, Fairbourne and Barmouth, or to a tiptop local pub/restaurant if you’re not feeling quite so energetic). Guests can also get out onto the circular route just above the property for some further viewpoints.

Facilities on site include a facilities block with showers, toilets and a washing-up area. Water is available but must be boiled before consumption. The distance between the car parking and pitches is variable and parking by the pitch can't be guaranteed. Pitches are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis; if you have a particular request please let the site know and they'll do their best to accommodate you.

Please note

Units longer than 6m metres are not allowed.

If making a fire, the fuel, logs and coal have to be purchased on site.

This is a quiet site: no music is allowed.

There are no bins onsite: all rubbish will need to be taken home with you.

Water on-site is filtered but not chlorinated, boiling is therefore recommended.

    The woodland camping spots were beautiful and certainly sheltered us from being pelted by the cold november rain.

    I will certainly be back next autumn to try out the field camping.

    Cefn Coed has something magical about it. We normally choose a field pitch but my partner really wanted to park up in the woodlands area. And I'm so glad we did, it was so beautiful. I love how each pitch has its own little area with different views along the forest. When you walk around the site it has so many different little areas for camping, mainly for tents but there's a few spots in the woods for vans. It's in a great location for exploring the surrounding areas. We walked along the Mawddach trail from the site up to a lovely little pub, George III with the most amazing views over the Estuary. We done walks from the site which led again to beautiful views overlooking the Estuary from up high. There was a hidden little picnic area along the way. We drove 45 mins to venture to our latest challenge and climbed Snowdon, again absolutely amazing. It was great being able to go out on these trips and come back to the peace and quiet of our little secluded pitch in the woods. A short walk took us up to the amenities which included, hot showers, toilets, clean water for drinking and a washing up area all which were clean. We also rented a fire pit with logs etc and any other little bits you might need in the little shop. There is a phone outside the shop if you need to contact the owner which we used and was able to get hold of them straight away. If you don't fancy cooking you can even order authentic Thai green curry cooked by the owner. I highly recommend this it was absolutely gorgeous, there are other options too but we had the chicken Thai green. I would like to thank the owners for their friendly and helpful approach to our stay it's definitely this which also makes the campsite that bit special. We will be back. Oh and we got to see the milky way! Stars are amazing.

Amazing site with private hot tubs and spotlessly clean facilities10/27/2022

  • Wooded non-electric earth campervan pitch

  • Liked: 

    Incredibly well appointed and beautifully designed site, with spotlessly clean facilities, farm shop and decent pub/restaurant on site - all with a focus on sustainability and comfort.
    The hot tub was amazing, with a view out over the fields but plenty of privacy from others on site.
    Paid wifi available additionally, but didn’t need it as we had decent 4G signal.
    Staff were welcoming, and the girl who served us breakfast was delightful.
    Well priced considering everything available - would recommend this site to anyone!

    Disliked: 

    Nothing. Perhaps the cheese I bought in the farm shop was a bit on the pricey side - but you’d expect that, and it was delicious.

    We were welcomed warmly by Adrian and the chickens roaming freely. We stayed in a woodland pitch which had a beautiful view over the forest and Cadair Idris. There are a number of really nice walks on foot from the campsite and it's only a short 15min drive to Cadair Idris. We also visited the lovely little town of Barmouth about 20min drive away which had some lovely trails up in the hills overlooking the sea. Adrian was really helpful in recommending us places to visit and forage and we were given the tour of the land and choice of all the pitches available.

    We got a vegan Thai red curry and Thai green curry (which were absolutely delicious!) delivered to our pitch. So warm and nourishing and just what was needed after a long day of hiking and delivered in compostable packaging too.

    The campsite also seemed to attract very friendly people, not disturbed or any trouble at all.

    We will definitely be back.

    Disliked: 

    one shower was very hot and the other was very cold, but it seemed like work was in the process of being done on these to improve already

Local attractions

Ready to ramble? Take a wander around Abergwynant Woods, 20 minutes’ walk away, or get set to conquer Cadair Idris, the slopes of which you can reach on foot in a couple of hours. The New Precipice Walk (15 minutes’ drive) is a fab choice for spectacular views; if you’re more into moving at speed, make for the mountain bike trails at Coed-y-Brenin forest park (also 15 minutes).

For less energetic days out, take fishing rods off to the banks of Cregennan Lakes (15 minutes) or Tal-y-llyn Lake (20 minutes) or make a break for the seaside at Fairbourne (10 minutes), where you can ride the heritage railway for a properly chilled-out time, or Barmouth (20 minutes).

Keen to see what lies beneath? Take a boat ride into a world of subterranean dragons and the like at King Arthur’s Labyrinth (25 minutes). Back up in the daylight, ancient Cymer Abbey (10 minutes) and the fab Italianate village of Portmeirion (40 minutes) are top ports of call.

Must see

  • CADW - Harlech Castle (16.4 kilometres)
  • MOMA Wales - Y Tabernacl (18.0 kilometres)
