Tyn Yr Onnen Farm: Beautiful day at Tyn-yr-Onnen

General

  • Family-run farm on the edge of Snowdonia National Park
  • Donkeys, llamas, chickens and more to see on site
  • Well-known walking country with hundreds of acres direct from the farm

Off to Wales to wander? Pitch up at superbly scenic Tyn Yr Onnen Farm, on the edge of Snowdonia National Park between the Moel Eilio and the Elephant Mountains (Mynydd Mawr), for a hiking holiday you won't forget.

Keen-footed wayfarers of all abilities can wander hundreds of acres of heathland direct from the farm including a route right up to Snowdon's peak – although if that thought makes you pale, the Snowdon Mountain Railway with its more relaxed summit accessing is only a few miles away.

Guests also travel to Tyn Yr Onnen Farm and this part of north Wales for the coastline and beaches of the Llŷn Peninsula and the Isle of Anglesey within easy driving distance, and to get down with Wales's mighty heritage at the likes of the National Slate Centre and the castles of Harlech, Caernarfon, Bangor, Beaumaris, all nearby.

On site, llamas, donkeys, pigs, chickens, ducks, turkeys and newborn lambs in spring inhabit the farm for the kids to coo at: Tyn Yr Onnen is a working 180-acre sheep farm managed by the Griffiths family for over 300 years. Pitches are sheltered, with loads of room for barbecues, and campfires are allowed in one of the camping fields.

The kids can entertain themselves at the play area with sandpit, or in the TV room with table tennis and pool table if the weather's a bit misty (parental supervision required at all times, of course), while the grownups should be chuffed at the clean and modern amenities in the refurbished toilet and shower block, with free hot showers, baby changing, disabled facilities and a utility room with washing-up area, campers' fridge and freezer, washing machines and tumble drier.

The local village, Waunfawr, is within walking distance and has a village shop open daily, as well as a pub serving the type of good food you want after a hike. There is also a local bus service which runs between Caernarfon and Beddgelert. Please check online for time tables and fares.

Please note

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

The games room is closed due to restrictions imposed by the coronavirus outbreak.

Minimum spacing of 6 metres between pitches.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro) and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

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

    Beautiful views surrounding campsite, local town wasn’t too far away so was easy to travel to restaurants etc. Tent pitches weren’t too close together which meant there was some sort of privacy. Would definitely recommend for a short stay - we climbed mount snowdon so this place was the perfect stop after.

  • Liked: 

    Campsite is absolutely gold for relaxing, the campsite managers are gem, very friendly, gave us a tour of their farm. The location is very good if you are looking to hike down Snowdown. The facilities are well maintained and clean. The chickens, ducks, donkeys and Llamas made it interesting for us. Do hike a bit up from campsite, there are views of the sea and the sunset is beautiful (don’t miss). We will come back for sure!

    Disliked: 

    Not a dislike but general information - A bit difficult to get around without car but that shouldn’t worry 95% of people. Also, don’t rely on the shop on the campsite for supplies.

Great campsite!09/11/2021

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousMobile phone iconConfirmed

  • Liked: 

    The campsite has stunning views and is a great location for Llanberis, Anglesey and Snowdonia. It has a really good little playground for children and lots of chickens roaming around providing free entertainment! There is also a good utility room with plenty of sinks and fridges for everyone. The staff were also lovely and really helpful!

    Disliked: 

    Although the toilet and shower facilities are adequate, we didn’t feel that there were enough of them but the campsite was very busy when we were there.

From the manager...

Thanks for your feedback we really appreciate your comments.
We have 2 toilet and shower blocks and although we do our best to communicate this to our guests, sometimes they forget, so obviously we need to do more.

Directions


Just off the A4085 between Caernarfon and Beddgelert is the village of Waunfawr. Look for the Skoda garage on the right, pass this and then take the third left. If you pass a church on the right or reach the bridge over a river then you have gone too far. The campsite is on your left about a kilometre from the main village road.

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 surrounding area has heaps to see and do alongside the rambles, coastlines and castles: if you get a bit stuck for choice, ask the family for their top picks. Within a short drive are Surf Snowdonia in Conway, Zip World in Bethesda (home to Velocity, the fastest zipline in the world and the longest in Europe), the treetop nets of Bounce Below, Zip World Caverns in Blaenau Ffestiniog and GreenWood Forest Park a family adventure park in Y Felinheli.

Rather conveniently, one of Wales's top attractions is less than five miles from Tyn Yr Onnen Farm, the National Slate Museum in Llanberis, where kids can get stuck into the story of the country's mining heritage amid talks and demos, quarrymen's houses and interactive play activities.

Llanberis village is where many set out to climb Snowdon as the Llanberis Path begins here, winding up the least taxing route (we'll point out again that the Snowdon Mountain Railway goes to the top too). The village is also a popular place for adventurous activities like kayaking, coasteering, scuba diving, mountain biking, pony trekking and high ropes courses.

Another popular pull of these parts is the Dinorwig Power Station or Electric Mountain: take an underground tour, set the kids free to play in the den, or test your wits in the Genius Corner puzzle room.

Must see

  • Snowdon Mountain Railway (5.3 kilometres)
  • National Slate Museum (5.3 kilometres)
  • Caernarfon Castle (6.8 kilometres)
