Penllechog Camping: June 2022

General

  • Small campsite on a working farm on the Llŷn Peninsula
  • Abersoch half an hour's drive; Portmeirion 35 minutes
  • Views over Gurn Ddu; well-behaved dogs welcome

Have yourself a holiday poking around castles, climbing Welsh hills and going for dips at local coves… the dog-friendly Penllechog Camping is located on a working beef and sheep farm at the base of Gurn Ddu on the spectacular Llŷn Peninsula. With a sheltered three-acre field as your base, here you’ll be surrounded by tall conifer trees and lots of typical Welsh greenery.

Although this site is high up and a little over a mile from the nearest village, Penllechog Camping is in a conveniently central location… Trefor beach, for instance, can be reached by car in about 10 minutes, while Nefyn has two sandy beaches 20 minutes down the road.

When your mind is set on a picnic or tasty breakfast bun, the local village of Llanaelhaearn has an award-winning bakery that bakes bread, cakes and savoury snacks daily. The site team are happy to take orders for you in advance so that there are freshly baked goodies waiting for you on your arrival.

Back at base, facilities at Penllechog Camping include two hot showers, two eco toilets and a washing-up area. The site's water is supplied from natural springs at the foot of Gurn Ddu, the impressive hill you can see from site. Drinks can be kept cool in a shared fridge located in a barn, just a short distance from the main pitching field. Essentials like milk and newspapers can be picked up at a nearby garage (again, the owners are happy to take orders on your behalf in advance).

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Dogs must be kept on leads and fully under control at all times.

    Lovely owners! Beautiful spot, it's a basic camp, but just how I like it, the erea is Beautiful. The field is quite small with showers and toilets, raised fires are OK. I would definitely stay ere again, maybe not a site for glampers!

    Disliked: 

    The toilets are a bit small, and a saw dust job which wasn't the end of the world

    Absolutely everything. Owners incredibly friendly and welcoming. Facilities immaculate. We had the site to ourselves for one night. Amazing! Dogs very welcome. One of the best places we have ever stayed. Greener camping club has changed our views on campsites. We look forward to returning again and again.

    Beautiful peaceful setting . Lovely owners and very relaxed . Sloping field but level pitches near the top. Composting toilets kept very clean and showers worked well with lots of warm water. Freezers and charging point for phones on a barn nearby. Loved sitting round the campfire looking at the stars in the evening. We had to heat our own water for washing up but we didn’t mind that. Good base for exploring this area of Wales. Loved the folder with ideas for places to visit and good food options , complete with post codes for navigation. Would definitely return.

Local attractions

With mountains and a gorgeous fishing village as your backdrop, dips are pretty splendid at Trefor beach (10 minutes' drive)… but that’s not the only place on the coast that will be calling your name from Penllechog Camping.

Pretty Portmeirion (35 minutes) has Italianate-style architecture, a spa and laidback strolls across the village, while Abersoch (30 minutes) is a sailing haven with boat trips to St Tudwal or coastal walks leading the way to further adventure. The sandy stretch in Nefyn is another rather attractive option.

When you want some sort of adventure without delay, there’s direct access to a trail to Gurn Ddu (a hill with great views over the sea). Otherwise, sling a picnic in your bag and make off for a castle of your choosing: the coastal Criccieth Castle (25 minutes) or medieval Caernarfon Castle (30 minutes) perhaps?

If it’s thrills you’re after, then GreenWood Family Park (40 minutes) or Zip World Slate Caverns (an hour) will fulfil those – the latter has huge zipwires or underground trampolines for a unique day out.

Must see

  • Criccieth Castle (11.1 kilometres)
  • Welsh Highland Railway (Porthmadog) (16.3 kilometres)
  • Ffestiniog Railway (16.9 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Plas yn Rhiw (24.2 kilometres)
  • Plas Newydd Country House and Gardens (26.8 kilometres)
