General

  • Relaxed family-run working farm site in Snowdonia National Park
  • Excellent area for hillwalking; two seaside resorts within 10 miles
  • Bordered by a river; nearest pub four miles away in Bryncrug

Rock up to this place for a pitch among stunning Welsh countryside: the site is set in Snowdonia National Park and lies six miles outside the seaside resort of Tywyn on the Cardigan Bay coast.

Spectacularly located under the site’s namesake of Craig yr Aderyn or Bird Rock, and with splendid views of the surrounding Cadair Idris massif and open countryside, Bird Rock Campsite is a quiet and relaxed family-run working farm, spaciously laid out over four grassy acres.

As this site is scenically set in national parkland, there’s plenty of handsome countryside to roam around, as well as waymarked walking trails to tramp. The accommodation field is bordered by a little river that guests can idle beside, wade in and cast a rod into. There's no wifi or mobile phone signal here either… all the better for soaking up the peace and quiet…

The site is consistently hailed by previous guests as being kept immaculately clean, and the owners oft lauded for their friendly and accommodating approach. For freshening up before or after your days of sightseeing and outdoorsy action, showers are available to use for a small fee, and a kettle and a washing machine are available over in the washing-up area for making hot drinks and sorting grubby togs. Also on site are Elsan waste points and electric hook-ups.

If you need to keep supplies topped up for evening campfires, the nearest supermarket is around six miles away in Tywyn. Plenty of good local pubs serving food are around too; the nearest is two miles away in Abergynolwyn.

    An incredible campsite. It's very out of the way, but the views and the site are 100% worth it. It's a simple site, but has everything you'd need. It's peaceful, relaxing and welcoming. The sunrise and sunset's from the pitches are breathtaking. Would stay again.

    Mountain views was nice that’s it everything else was spoilt by bad attitude and being made to feel not welcome at all

    Disliked: 

    Awful people as one of the caravaners put it they are a community and don’t like people who ain’t part of it shouldn’t have this site advertised as family friendly as it is not not unless u have a robot child who doesn’t make any noise what so ever, also a man from said community and a few others tried to intimidate us after he came over to us shouting as we had music on at 10 in the morning while packing up it was not blasting out or anything stupid we are not teenagers and had children with us , on arrival the owner was slightly rude in telling us the money we owed of course we knew this and was just trying to find reception as we drove past it and was turning round where she was Barking at us where to go and to pay unless u are an older couple I don’t think this site is suitable and should change its advertising to no children and no person under 50 so they can have there community and click absolutely will not ever be going back

From the manager...

I can’t have been that bad at barking as you asked to stay another night when you came to pay.
The music was played very loud with a horrible bwm bwm noise which I came and asked you to turn it down, which fair play you did.
The regulars didn’t tell you off because of your children who you were shouting at to go to sleep, it was your music, especially on a Sunday morning when everyone likes a lie in.
We are a very child friendly campsite and I don’t agree with your review at all.

    Fantastic location. Close to great walks along river and up Craig yr Aderyn and surrounding hills. Site quiet and well laid out, good choice of pitches and friendly staff . Price reasonable and facilities straightforward and well maintained. Enjoyed watching wildlife close to the site (dipper, kingfisher, otter, chough). Nice to come back after several years and find site just as I remembered... Cadw fynd!

Directions


Instead of using satnav, guests are advised to ring ahead for directions using the number in their booking confirmation email.

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 site’s spectacular Snowdonia National Park setting among the Cadair Idris massif means that scenic hill walks are on the menu, as well as cycling and mountain biking around Cregennan Lakes or along the Mawddach Trail.

For sitting back and admiring Welsh seaside scenes, take the coastal line of the Talyllyn Railway from the seaside resort of Tywyn, six miles from base, to Shrewsbury or in the other direction to Porthmadog. If you’d rather stay put on the sands or try your hand at surfing, Tywyn's beach and waves are much recommended.

For varied days off base, the subterranean slate cavern zipwiring park at Blaenau Ffestiniog is well worth the hour’s drive to, or closer to home there’s a laser shooting centre in Tywyn. An alternative (and rather more sedate) option is the Centre for Alternative Technology in Corris, where visitors can learn all about how to live a more sustainable life.

Must see

  • Rheilffordd Talyllyn Railway (9.9 kilometres)
  • MOMA Wales - Y Tabernacl (11.8 kilometres)
  • CADW - Harlech Castle (24.2 kilometres)

National Trust
