Llwyn yr Helm Caravan Park: Bell tent interior

General

  • Stay on a working farm site in Snowdonia National Park
  • Haven for ramblers, bikers and hikers: lots of nearby trails
  • Less than half an hour’s drive from the Welsh coast beaches

You won’t want to hide among the bushes during your stay at Llwyn yr Helm Caravan Park, a family-friendly site on a working farm less than 10 minutes’ drive from the market town of Dolgellau in Gwynedd – this place is all about getting out and about.

In the southern reaches of Snowdonia National Park, Llwyn yr Helm is a haven for ramblers, bikers and hikers: Mawddach trail, Torrent Walk and Precipice Walk all start in Dolgellau, and Cadair Idris mountain’s Minfford Path starts less than 15 minutes from site. That’s the hikers sorted, so what about the bikers? Coed y Brenin Biking and Visitor Centre is 20 minutes away, and the fab Antur Stiniog downhill biking trails are within an hour.

If you’re not much of an outdoor adventurer, there’s plenty else nearby: try plane spotting at the famous Mach Loop, ziplining at Zip World Slate Caverns or poking around the scenic Italianate village of Portmeirion – or you could make a beeline to the beaches and harbours at Fairbourne or Barmouth, where boat trips and watersports abound?

Back on site, fire up the barbecue for dinner then kick up your feet in the evening, soaking in the views of the Cadair Idris mountain range, reading, or watching a DVD borrowed from reception. If you’d prefer to venture out, there are plenty of restaurants to try within 25 minutes of the site.

Hidden gem! Loved our stay!07/25/2021

  • Decked electric tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    After looking for a last minute trip we came across this site with only the decked pitch remaining. We were a bit dubious but having read previous reviews we decided to give it a go and so glad we did. It’s the best pitch on site! Paul was great and helped us pitch up on the decking. All the staff were so friendly and made time to chat. Facilities are ultra modern and absolutely spotless. The site is great for families. The kids loved feeding the animals on a morning at the barn. We were gutted to have to pack up and already planning our next stay.

    Clean facilities, location of site, friendliness of owner and managers. Animals and park were a huge hit with children.

    Loved this place! Squeaky clean and tidy site, well maintained with stunning views. Pitch black at night with the most spectacular view of stars, stars and more stars. Really quiet and peaceful with a small stream running through. Camp wardens were absolutely amazing, knowledgeable and friendly. This little site really is a gem and we can’t wait to visit again soon! 25 min drive to Barmouth beach and 20 min drive to Bala lake. Beautiful beautiful beautiful!

Budding angler looking for your fishing fix? Turn your boat to Cregennan lakes about 25 minutes from the site to cast a line – if nothing’s biting, there are scenic trails around the lake so it won’t be a wasted trip. Stay out in the open by joining the flock for a sheep trekking experience, also 25 minutes away, or dive below the earth’s surface and clamber into a boat at award-winning King Arthur’s Labyrinth.

For something a little more high culture, the Machynlleth modern art museum is half an hour from Llwyn yr Helm and is well worth a poke around.
