Aerial view of site

General

  • Family-friendly smallholding in a rural location on the Llŷn Peninsula
  • Spectacular views towards the peak of Moelypenmaen
  • Lots of open space for kids to play

Get back to nature among spectacular surroundings with a stay at Gwynedd's Rhos Y Foel, in the midst of the Llŷn Peninsula a short drive from more lush landscapes at Snowdonia National Park.

Set with views towards the rocky peak of Moelypenmaen, Rhos Y Foel is a small and family-friendly site, with a wide swathe of open space on which the kids can let loose. Well-behaved dogs are welcome.

Rhos Y Foel is a level and almost completely flat site – no uncomfy bumpy groundsheet nights here – and has a facilities block with hot running water.

Barbecues and campfires in firepits are allowed: for supplies, the local village is Boduan and the shops and services of market town Pwllheli are a few miles away.

    We liked that there are separate fields for tents and caravans, the outdoor sinks were really useful. Showers and toilets kept clean with appropriate measures in place in light of covid19. Really good location for exploring the peninsula with beautiful views. Fire pits available to hire on arrival.

    Disliked: 

    Shower very poor very low pressure. Anybody turned a tap on showers stopped leaving the wife covered in bubbles, waiting ten minutes before a few drips of water started to come out so she could rinse off

From the manager...

Thanks for your review, sorry the showers weren't working for a short time during your stay, we had the plumber out at 8 am the next morning to fix them.

    Lovely location in the countryside with great views. Plenty of space for the kids (and grown ups) to play ball and frisbee in the field! We were staying in a small campervan and had a good amount of space on our pitch. We walked to Nefyn beach from the campsite over Garn boduan which was 9k, fantastic views from up there. Took a different route back which was 5k. Great day out. A fantastic few days.

    Disliked: 

    Cold showers and one of the toilets kept blocking (due to somebody trying to flush copious amounts of toilet roll) , leaving only one toilet at times as some were shut due to covid social distancing rules. The owners were doing their very best to rectify these problems.

Local attractions

As you'll know if you've ever had the sense to go there, the Llŷn Peninsula is lovely land, with sea all around as it jabs 30 miles into the Irish Sea from north-west Wales's tip. Rhos Y Foel is in an excellent setting to get to the best of its hills and coast in the site surrounds, and to explore the mountains and other highlights of Snowdonia a short drive away.

Around the peninsula, have seaside days at resorts like Abersoch, Nefyn, Morfa Nefyn and Pwllheli, all just a few miles away, or get active with afternoons among the wakeboarding, bowling, quad biking, go karting and fishing of Glasfryn Parc nearby at Pwllheli; soft play, food, a farm shop and a bar are at this latter as well. Paintball is nearby if you want to take things up a notch.

Another top local option for families is the award-winning GreenWood Forest Park, where you can paddle among trees, make things work at the world's only people-powered rollercoaster, see a live show, meet the animals or try den building and archery. More animal meeting is at Dwyfor Rabbit Farm, or drive to the foot of Snowdonia for a more active family day out at Gypsy Wood.

The famed 18-hole Nefyn & District Golf Club at Porthdinllaen is only a few minutes from the site.
