A beautiful site that takes you back to nature! No signal for your mobile which was good, get away from the world. Squirrel's, rabbits, birds galore all within the complex. Owners and staff were very nice and helpful, you can even order fresh home made pizzas! If you feel like getting away from the hustle and bustle this is the place I can guarantee it.! Great walks, and bike ride routes. This campsite is very scenic. Word of warning if you have a large tent you will need rock pegs!!! Shower block could do with a bit of cleaning(mainly cobwebs) but its expected you are in the forest!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- For a truly unique camping experience, Beddgelert has to be top of your list! Where else can you step back in time and catch the narrow gauge steam train from the campsite's station? Running between Caernarfon to Porthmadog, just park your car, leave your tent and explore the stunning Snowdonia scenery in style. The spectacular Welsh Highland Railway passes through the magnificent Aberglaslyn Pass and on to Porthmadog in one direction, and takes a dramatic zig-zagging climb through the Snowdonia foothills, before dropping over 650ft to the castle walls at Caernarfon in the opposite direction. The Colwyn River runs right through the heart of the forest campsite and is a welcome refuge for a rich variety of animal and plant life including species of otter and trout. You may also spot peregrine falcons, merlins buzzards and black grouse. There really is no better way to gain a more authentic forest experience from the comfort of your tent! For great pubs, a bistro, a cafe and several fascinating craft shops, Beddgelert village is just a mile from the site. The Sygun Copper Mine can also be found just outside of Beddgelert village. Walkers can follow the footpath along the banks of the Glaslyn River to Beddgelert's most famous historic landmark, Gelert's Grave. The nearest supermarket is approximately 9 miles away, as is the nearest Leisure Centre. Dogs are welcome on this campsite and there are toilets and showers. There is also a useful shop selling groceries and camping equipment. Please be advised that you will need to bring rock pegs and that there is no mobile phone signal on this campsite. ... more less
