Site

General

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

Snowdonia National Park, Anglesey’s beaches, the lovely Llyn 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.

    Beautiful site with excellent toilet/shower facilities . (Best we have ever seen camping )
    Individual super roomy pitches which have your own water/waste which we found very useful .
    Children enjoyed being on the dairy farm and going to see the baby calves .
    Ellir & Aled (park owners) were so lovely & friendly .
    Site is very local to supermarket and Caernarfon which is a lovely trip out especially the castle . Steam train passes frequently and so lovely to see and hear .
    Peaceful site tucked away just lovely . Will return next year x

    Disliked: 

    washing machine & tumble dryer in the facilities is very kindly provided by the site owners for campers (a small charge is to be placed in the honesty box provided) yet some of my fellow campers felt it right to use them and not even leave a single £ !!!!...as a family I was very grateful as it was a wet few days when we went so we just paid the owner direct . Campers please don’t abuse this , it’s not fair !!

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 Llyn Peninsula, for more splendid beaches as well as wildlife-watching boat trips.
