Maes Carafanau Hendy Caravan Park: Serviced pitches

General

  • Rural site on a dairy farm 20 minutes' walk from Caernarfon
  • Half an hour from Snowdonia, Anglesey and the Llŷn Peninsula
  • Well-kept amenities including an accessible wetroom

Snowdonia National Park, Anglesey’s beaches, the lovely Llŷn Peninsula… if you fancy taking in lots of the local faves on your north-west Wales hols, take a look at handily placed Maes Carafanau Hendy Caravan Park.

From this relaxed rural spot on a working dairy farm it’s around half an hour by car to all of the above, and a 20-minute stroll to historic Caernarfon, famed for its UNESCO-listed castle but also a popular place for poking about in the town’s independent shops and cafés. The Welsh Highland Railway and the Lôn Eifion cycle path pass by the site too, giving guests easy access to all sorts of ways to roam.

Those in search of heaps of on-site activities will have to look elsewhere, as the Joneses have chosen to keep their place as peaceful as poss, focusing on doing the essential amenities to top standards. The large pitches have space to spread about a bit with access to electrical hookups and drinking water, and the top-notch bathroom facilities have hot showers, an accessible wetroom… and hairdryers for those days when the Welsh weather has messed with your mop.

Small peaceful faite with lovely shower block close enough to walk in09/23/2021

  • Liked: 

    Superbly clean new toilet block. Close enough to Carnarvon to walk or cycle in but rural enough to be peaceful. Owners were very friendly and laid back

    Disliked: 

    The women's and disabled showers both had controls that were extremely hard to turn on and off which caused my partner to flood the floor accidentally as the shower was very powerful and stuck on.
    The site is in a dairy farm so the smell of manure is quite strong!

    Toilet block was very clean and loads of hot water not on a timer. Fantastic walks from the site to the sea or along the steam railway line. A short walk of 20 minutes to Caernarfon.
    Pitches are flat, water & electricity on every pitch.
    The owner was very helpful

    Disliked: 

    A bit smelly & noisy from the diary cows but it is a large working farm I suppose.
    Wifi didn't work but it didn't bother us I we spent the weekend with no phone & no tv.

Local attractions

Start by taking a stroll into Caernarfon to see the mighty waterfront castle, a huge and well-preserved place with lots to see and plenty of puzzles and activities for the tiddlers; it’s worth having a look around the Royal Welch Fusiliers Regimental Museum while you’re here too.

The Welsh Highland Railway runs steam train rides from Caernarfon: grab a spot at the station to watch them depart or get all aboard for the 25-mile ride through the mountains to Porthmadog. If you prefer to travel under your own steam, there’s easy access to the scenic 12-mile Lôn Eifion cycle path, a hard-surfaced path that skirts the edge of Snowdonia for some great views and village visits.

For days by the seaside, cross the Menai Suspension Bridge to Anglesey – there are some lovely beaches on the island (Traeth Cymyran, 40 minutes away, is perhaps the most popular) – and the excellent Anglesey Sea Zoo, home to a seahorse breeding programme and the Lobster Hatchery of Wales. Head south instead and it’s around a half-hour drive to Pwlheli on the Llŷn Peninsula, for more splendid beaches as well as wildlife-watching boat trips.

Must see

  • Caernarfon Castle (1.3 kilometres)
