General

  • Peaceful village site by the Artro river and two miles from the coast
  • Portmeirion 25 minutes' drive; 50 minutes to Snowdon
  • Families, motorcyclists and Duke of Edinburgh groups welcome

It's a breeze to get down to the coast from this site in Gwynedd, as The Mill Caravan Park and Camping Site is a mere two miles from the beach. Set on the edge of the peaceful village of Llanbedr, close to Snowdonia National Park, it’s also well-placed for waterside wanders, as the peaceful river Artro can be accessed a few metres from the pitches.

Being so close to the village centre makes staying here a fair bit easier. In terms of food, Llanbedr's shops, restaurants and pubs are five minutes away on foot. Transport-wise, there are buses, the A496 that heads up into the mountains and, on the western side of the village, Llanbedr railway station (about 20 minutes’ walk).

Back on site, you'll be settling down in the main site field, a wide open space with vistas over a thickly forested hill. Barbecues and dogs are welcome here. The Mill Caravan Park and Camping Site is popular with family groups, motorcyclists on road trips around the national park and Duke of Edinburgh groups, who regularly stop off here to take advantage of the great views and transport links.

The fact that the Welsh coast is so close is another big plus: Barmouth and Harlech are 15 minutes' drive from site, while the pastel-coloured houses of Portmeirion are 25 minutes away.

    Disliked: 

    The sofa bed was not a proper pull out so one side was completely dipped and you could feel the bar and the other side was hard. Outside shower didn’t work and the shower head was missing anyway… toilet block was dull and spider infested!!! Lots of loud noise/music and swearing going on throughout the day up until late, as well as being right next to a construction site. Not to mention the high volume of wasps flying about. We had high expectations, but actually ended up going home a day early

    The location is fabulous, small village within walking distance and 10-15 minutes drive to the beach, castle and waterfalls.
    Site owners are really friendly and welcoming but happy to leave you to it once you arrive. The shower was broken on arrival but after mentioning it someone was in working within the hour and we were offered alternative use of the glamping shower when this wasn't being occupied
    Plenty of room to pitch up, we went as a group of 3 families with children and 2 singles

    Disliked: 

    toilet block isn't great although does the job, and even though they fixed the shower it still ran hot and cold depending on whether someone was using the taps.

    Was quite worried about booking as there were a lot of bad reviews, but didn't have any concerns at all during our stay. Quiet little field, able to find a nice spot for my microcamper and tent. Very peaceful evening sitting watching the stars, all campers doing the same, no issues with noise! Slept like a log. Toilets and showers old but perfectly adequate, although no loo rolls or hand towels. Little washing up area as well.

    Disliked: 

    No lighting so a bit difficult to get around at night! But we did have torches!

    Facilities weren’t good at all.
    - toilets were really unclean
    - bins were overflowing
    - not always soap in the toilets
    - music playing until 1:30am
    - very expensive compared to other campsites and much worse facilities

Local attractions

Beach time at Barmouth (15 minutes' drive) will keep the kids happy in fine weather, while for a bit of high-adrenaline adventure there's also the go-karting on offer at Glasfryn Parc (45 minutes) or Zip World Fforest (45 minutes), home to Wales' famous forest rollercoaster. For the bravest thrill-seekers, this site is also conveniently close to Skydiving Snowdonia (five minutes).

Hiking up mountains such as Snowdon (50 minutes) in the National Park is another popular option. Cader Idris (an hour and 10 minutes) is also a very popular peak and has great views over southern Snowdonia, plus you'll often get the chance to see planes zooming over the Mach Loop low-flying aircraft practice area on its eastern flank.

There's also a lot of history around these parts, as these ancient hills have been inhabited since before written records began. Head to Llanbedr's neolithic standing stones (a few minutes' walk from site) if you want to learn more, or take the time to visit the imposing castle in Harlech (15 minutes), built in 1290 in a strategic position overlooking the Irish Sea as part of the so-called Iron Ring.

Must see

  • CADW - Harlech Castle (4.4 kilometres)
  • Portmeirion Gardens (10.4 kilometres)
