Pitching field

General

  • Family-run park over 11 acres, 15 mins' walk from Criccieth beach
  • Views of the Snowdonia mountains and over Cardigan Bay
  • Public footpaths in the surrounds; Porthmadog three miles away

Crikey. It may be small, but the Welsh seaside town of Criccieth has a cracking array of active options around it for all sorts of hols: on beach, in sea, up mountain, down mine, on pony, with fishing rod/golf club, or crisscrossing the many miles of footpaths in the area… And not that the best of all these is the famed Criccieth Cadwaladers ice cream, but well, Cadwaladers ice cream.

Criccieth lies on the scenic shores of Snowdonia, as do the 11 acres of nearby Eisteddfa Caravan and Camping Site, a family-run Gwynedd site with views on one side of the Snowdonia mountains and over Cardigan Bay to the other.

If you prefer to stay fairly local, a network of public footpaths crisscross the countryside immediately surrounding the park, the beach at Criccieth is 15 minutes’ walk away, and the town of Porthmadog is within three and a half miles; if not, Eisteddfa is on the A497 for easy access to days’ worth of other sights to see and things to do.

The clean and tidy amenities include toilet blocks, hot showers, a launderette and electric shaver points and sockets for hairdryers so you can look your best for a day’s sailing or mountain climbing; a playground has also been added to keep the kids busy while you plot what you’re planning to see and do next.

Criccieth is the nearest place for supplies and has petrol stations, shops, pubs, cafés, restaurants and a post office.

    Great facilities, always kept clean. Good location. Friendly and very helpful staff. Showers were great, nice and hot, plenty of water, only 20p a go.

    Disliked: 

    The basic pitches are on a couple of fields which are all on slopes, so not ideal. Kids playgrounds were not very close by - either all the way down next to reception, or hidden away at the far end of one of the back fields, in a dip.

    Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Site was absolutely immaculate & the recreation field was brilliant for walking our dog.

    Disliked: 

    Money for the showers didn't last long & the meters should maybe be on the inside of the cubicle. Awkward when shower stops to reach outside of cubicle to add more money.

    This is the nicest campsite I’ve been to.
    Liked most:
    Staff - very friendly and knowledgeable about the surrounding area, and really welcoming when we arrived. They also enforced the “quiet hours” rule consistently; a tent near us were enjoying themselves past the 11.30pm noise curfew and a staff member reminded them of the rule (which was good as we have children that were asleep).
    Toilet/shower block - looked brand new all the time we were there even though the campsite was full and it was being used probably all the time. Very good shower facilities and reasonable pricing (20p for 4 minutes - toilets were free!!).
    Scenery - from our tent pitch we could see mountains on one side, and sea on the other. Our pitch was nice and flat (although there were a few pitches that were less than flat) and apart from a train that went by once (maybe twice) a day the only noise you could hear was the sea.
    Playgrounds - there were 2 playgrounds for the smaller children, 1 bigger one near the entrance and one smaller one near the tent pitches.
    There was mobile signal and 4G everywhere I went on the site too.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing to dislike, our stay was fantastic.

    Absolutely everything! Drew was so welcoming the moment we got to the campsite. For a first time family tent holiday we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.

    Field was very well kept, recreation area for the children was awesome, toilets were immaculate and it's in a perfect location to get to the beach.

    Will definitely come back next year!

Local attractions

After sampling the first lot of Cadwaladers ice-cream at Criccieth, make for mighty 13th-century Criccieth Castle, set on the headland overlooking Tremadog Bay, Snowdonia to the north and across the entirety of the Llyn peninsula to the west (you’ll see the castle towering above the town as you drive into Criccieth). Cadw, which now manages the site, has added info on it and other Welsh castles, a visitor centre and gift shop.

As you’ll see when peering down from the headland beside the castle, Criccieth also has two rather smashing beaches: the sandy beach of East Shore to the, er, east, and pebbly Marine Beach to the west. Sea angling can be had at both: mackerel, bass, whiting and dogfish are good bets from either side and anglers also wrestle pollock, conger and evening mackerel from the stone jetty under the castle.

The Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways line can be picked up at Porthmadog for a seriously scenic trip to Blaenau Ffestiniog; the Snowdon Mountain Railway from Llanberis will puff you sedately up to Snowdon’s peak via viaducts and a waterfall; and the Welsh Highland Railway steams along a 25-mile route from Porthmadog to Caernarfon.

Must see

  • Criccieth Castle (1.5 miles)
  • Welsh Highland Railway (Porthmadog) (2.9 miles)
  • Ffestiniog Railway (3.2 miles)

National Trust

  • Ty^ Mawr Wybrnant (17.3 miles)
