General

  • Relaxed family-run working farm site in Snowdonia National Park
  • Excellent area for hillwalking; two seaside resorts within 10 miles
  • Bordered by a river; nearest pub two miles away in Abergynolwyn

Rock up to this place for a pitch among stunning Welsh countryside: the site is set in Snowdonia National Park and lies six miles outside the seaside resort of Tywyn on the Cardigan Bay coast.

Spectacularly located under the site’s namesake of Craig yr Aderyn or Bird Rock, and with splendid views of the surrounding Cadair Idris massif and open countryside, Bird Rock Campsite is a quiet and relaxed family-run working farm, spaciously laid out over four grassy acres.

As this site is scenically set in national parkland, there’s plenty of handsome countryside to roam around, as well as waymarked walking trails to tramp. The accommodation field is bordered by a little river that guests can idle beside, wade in and cast a rod into. There's no wifi or mobile phone signal here either… all the better for soaking up the peace and quiet…

The site is consistently hailed by previous guests as being kept immaculately clean, and the owners oft lauded for their friendly and accommodating approach. For freshening up before or after your days of sightseeing and outdoorsy action, showers are available to use for a small fee, and a kettle and a washing machine are available over in the washing-up area for making hot drinks and sorting grubby togs. Also on site are Elsan waste points and electric hook-ups.

If you need to keep supplies topped up for evening campfires, the nearest supermarket is around six miles away in Tywyn, and a village shop lies a little closer for basic supplies. Plenty of good local pubs serving food are around too; the nearest is two miles away in Abergynolwyn.

    Everything about my stay was lovely 😊 especially the wonderful AJ - very helpful, actually saved me as my tent pegs were not strong enough, the ground used to be under sea level so it’s very tough but he was on hand with some industrial strength ones so my tent was then up with in a bout 5 mins.

    The area is absolutely stunning, I would move there in a heartbeat 💓.

    All of the utilities are very accessible and clean. I had a dog with me and he was very welcomed too. He is quite a well behaved dog and only barked at the animals a bit - but for other dog owners it’s good to know that there are sheep and cows (incase you have a dog that likes to chase them)

    I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will definitely be returning - I look forward to seeing you all again

    Many thanks

    This campsite is situated in a beautiful area among the mountains. It was so peaceful camping by the stream. The campsite itself is very basic but has what you need. Perfect for getting away from everyday life and relaxing.

    The site is surrounded by beautiful scenery, was really quiet and peaceful and well placed for adventures in the surrounding area. The facilities are adequate, the 50p shower runs for a decent length of time and is lovely and hot after a long day. The other campers were super friendly and helped us out when our tent nearly blew away! Overall it was really good value for money and we would happily come back.

    Disliked: 

    Some of the site is quite open and exposed to the wind, and the ground is full of rocks, so we'd recommend bringing strong tent pegs and a wind break if you can.

Directions


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 site’s spectacular Snowdonia National Park setting among the Cadair Idris massif means that scenic hill walks are on the menu, as well as cycling and mountain biking around Cregennan Lakes or along the Mawddach Trail.

For sitting back and admiring Welsh seaside scenes, take the coastal line of the Talyllyn Railway from the seaside resort of Tywyn, six miles from base, to Shrewsbury or in the other direction to Porthmadog. If you’d rather stay put on the sands or try your hand at surfing, Tywyn's beach and waves are much recommended.

For varied days off base, the subterranean slate cavern zipwiring park at Blaenau Ffestiniog is well worth the hour’s drive to, or closer to home there’s a laser shooting centre in Tywyn. An alternative (and rather more sedate) option is the Centre for Alternative Technology in Corris, where visitors can learn all about how to live a more sustainable life.

Must see

  • Rheilffordd Talyllyn Railway (6.1 miles)
  • MOMA Wales - Y Tabernacl (7.3 miles)
  • CADW - Harlech Castle (15.0 miles)

National Trust
