Gardens around the site

General

  • Small Llyn Peninsula site less than five minutes' walk from the coast
  • Portmeirion and Snowdonia National Park within a half-hour drive
  • Direct access to a sandy beach, the coast path and seaside cycle path

They certainly deliver on what they promise in their name at Sŵn y Don Caravan Park… and in case your Welsh lingo isn’t up to much, what this Gwynedd site promises is ‘the sound of the wave’. Indeed, there’s no missing the call of the sea here, because this peaceful park is right by the Llyn Peninsula coast, less than five minutes’ walk from the coast path and a sandy beach.

Also just down by the beach is a bike path for pedalling along to Pwllheli or Porthmadog; if you’d rather drive, they’re about 10 minutes and 15 minutes away respectively. And if you’re pottering about by public transport, hail a bus from the stop five minutes’ stroll away.

This is a mighty chilled-out spot, with space for dogs and kids to scamper about and for guests to gather around barbecues. That it’s a fine place to relax of an evening will be particularly excellent news for folk planning to pack their schedules with activities and attractions – there are stacks of things to do in this part of the world, both on the peninsula and back on the mainland, so get set for days of beaches, castles and Snowdonia strolls… and, if you’re feeling brave, a screaming ride along the world’s longest zipwire…

No doubt such travels will result in a bit of a build-up of sand and/or mud about your person, so it’s pleasing to note that you can hose that all off at the site’s smart shower block, which has an accessible wetroom and underfloor heating to ensure happy feet.

    The site is lovely fully serviced pitch nice and quiet there is a train that runs through but didn't bother us kids loved it. Liked the showers as wasn't push button and were included in price and there is also a washing machine which is also free. Has disabled toilet. Beach is just a short walk from the entrance. They have a lake that my partner fished was told there were carp there he didn't see or catch one so don't think there is but he did catch Rudd. The play area for children is just what you see in picture which mine did love. Situated close to Pwllheli (10mins away) which has an Asda and other big shops and Cricieth (5 mins away) lots to do around North Wales.

    Disliked: 

    Was told when I called that we could use the swimming pool but when we arrived got told we couldn't but when I spoke to others on site they were also told they could use before arrival but when they arrived they also wasn't allowed. The hard ground isn't very nice pegs wouldn't stay in properly. No hand dryers and would benefit from baby changing facilities. Showers could do with some shelving to put wash stuff on.

    The quietness of the site, the use of facilities and the closeness of the beach. Was wary to begin with as right on the railway line but the trains arent frequent and you barely notice when they do pass. Kids loved the driver beeping at them!

    Peaceful location, short walk to the sea and a nice stretch of beach. Stayed for a couple of weeks in August with extended family, including a two year old. Lots of space, good sized pitches, Good base for getting out and about or even just chilling and enjoying the sea and coastal walks.

    Nothing, our stay was all good. Don’t let being near a railway line put you off, hardly and trains and you don’t hear them!

Local attractions

Once you’ve sat on the sandy beach and strolled on the Wales Coast Path, it’s worth paying a visit to Pwllheli (10 minutes’ drive), where you can board boats for fishing days or sea-life safaris (or just lounge on another fab beach if you prefer…) For a bit more water-based activity, get along to Glasfryn Parc (10 minutes), for wakeboarding sessions or to keep dry with go-karting and Segway rides.

Heading back to the mainland, you’ll hit the Snowdonia National Park with a drive of 20 minutes or so – head up here for hikes, mountain bike trails, Snowdon climbs and somewhat less strenuous scenic rides on the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railway from Porthmadog (15 minutes). Intrigued by that world-beating zipline? It’s 50 minutes away at Penrhyn Quarry; slightly shorter versions can be found at Zip World Slate Caverns (35 minutes), along with an underground trampoline park.

While on the mainland, seek out the swish Italianate village of Portmeirion (25 minutes) and the castles at Criccieth (10 minutes) and Harlech (35 minutes).
