Bach Wen: A private space by the stream

General

  • Secluded seaside site on the coast 20 minutes' drive from Caernarfon
  • A 20-minute drive to Snowdonia walks; half an hour to Portmeirion
  • Access to a private beach, with sea views across the site

Ever dreamt of having access to a private beach? Book a break at Bach Wen, on the Gwynedd coast just outside the village of Clynnog-Fawr, and that dream becomes reality.

This secluded seaside spot is just the place for relaxing holidays, with plenty of space for all guests to spread out, and a sizeable paddock for kids and dogs to scamper about. And yes indeed, its own beach area too – simply follow the stream to get to the sands for days of swimming, kayaking, fishing or hikes along the coast path.

You can see the sea while on site too if you prefer to stay put – the views are particularly stunning at sunset, and even better again with a cold beer or glass of wine in hand from the on-site bar (you’ll just need to arrange this a little bit in advance to make sure someone’s around to do the pouring honours). If you’d rather pick up your own tipples and food, there’s a little supermarket five minutes’ walk away in the village.

Those cold drinks may well be much welcomed by those aiming to pack plenty of activity into their break here – this location at the top of the Llŷn Peninsula means that there’s much to explore nearby. Head into the nearby Snowdonia National Park for hikes, mountain biking and an adventure park, soak up the history of Caernarfon, 20 minutes’ drive away, or bounce around the numerous beaches of the peninsula.

    We LOVED our stay at Bach Wen. Such an idyllic setting! We stayed in the Dandelion pod and we had everything we need. The private access to the beach was great. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. We felt welcome and at home. The facilities were always spotless. We wish we stayed for more than two days! So I think we'll definitely be coming back! :)

  • The Glade electric grass and earth tent pitch (riverside)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Welcome on arrival, proximity to coast and private access to shore. The 'glade' pitch was nice and secluded with a well marked pathway to it. This pitch gaving its own fridge, elec supply and fire pit was ideal. Toilet and shower facilities were excellent as is the under cover bar area and open space, all overlooking the sea.

Toilets and showers great addition to the campsite06/29/2021

  • Liked: 

    Awesome campsite with great views of the hills and stone beach. The owner who stayed in the caravan was very friendly and helpful telling us places to eat etc. Very peaceful apart from one morning.

    Disliked: 

    Other guests who were part of a cycling event were very loud during the morning. The night before we were told to keep the noise down due to them being up early. Which we respected, they had no respect for us, other guests.

    If you suffer from Hayfever don't go during the peak of it.
