We've just arrived home after spending the weekend in Farm No.1 (Planwydd) and we had a great time. We arrived at the Cwellyn Arms (which does great food) and checked-in and the lady couldn't have done enough for us. All information was supplied - Taxi numbers, forecasts, routes - nothing was too much trouble.
The farmhouse itself was lovely - we were all very pleasantly surprised by what we found. Excellently equipped kitchen, wonderful dining area and comfortable living/sitting area. Upstairs the beds are comfortable with good quality linen and a good shower to boot.

Thank you for your review and your kind comments.
We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at the Farmhouse and that the lack of mobile signal was not too off-putting, it can be a blessing and also infuriating!
We look forward to your next visit
Many Thanks
Julie

Stayed in the small bunkhouse for a weekend in January whilst climbing some peaks. The bunk house had everything one could hope for.Wonderful views, a Small kitchen area, comfy beds, shower toilet and most of all a log burning stove to come home to. I must say it was immaculately cleaned for our arrival as well. There is A short walk to the pub which serve an array of fine ales, and gourmet pub food to die for, which is all home made and freshly sourced. The owners were helpful and kind and went out of their way to ensure our stay was comfortable and enjoyable. Being stranded at the end of the trip, the gentleman from the pub gave us a lift 4 miles away so we could commute home. Will definitely be staying again and am very much looking forward to doing so. 10/10

Having stayed here a number of years ago, I searched out the bunkhouse for a couple of nights midweek

Whilst small comfortable for two, very friendly for 3 we found everything we needed, a baby belling , clean shower and bedding and a good kettle.

Good parking and a short uphill stroll to the Cwellan arms...very handy as on way back its downhill

Great walks from the door step of the bunkhouse.

5 of us stayed here in Nov 2013. The facilities are excellent and the place was well heated and clean. The staff adjusted the price for us when we turned up with fewer than we had booked for.
The owner has done a lot of work to the campsite and to the facilities in general. We will definitely stay here again as the price and location are excellent.

If you're looking for a great camp site with nice facilities, a nice pub with good food and great service or a bunk house all with amazing views of Snowdon.....then look no further, this place has it all.

It's not just the above that makes this place so special, it's the people that run it and the extra mile they go for you!

Between me and my friends we've camped here 4 times since January and wouldn't go anywhere else when heading for a weekend in Snowdonia. There are many good camp sites / pubs / bunk houses around Snowdon, I've tried a lot and most of them are very good...but this one is a step above the rest and I'll continue to stay here on my trips.

Thanks Graham!

Loved the place. Awesome scenery and setting for a campsite. Very clean and modern showers and toilets, and makes a change to have a shower that lets you set the temperature!! Much needed very hot shower after a wet and windy day on the mountain path (one of which starts just across the road). Very peaceful campsite (no music) but would love to have had the weather to use one of their numerous fire pits and picnic tables! No hook up (we were in a motorhome), but not a problem.
10 minute walk to Cwellyn Arms from site, which was also great. Good food, fireplace, drinks and the owners were so helpful, both in booking things (pitch, tables, pack lunches etc) but also catering for dogs and also helping me out with material to seal a broken vehicle window (unrelated!).
Would definitely love to return. Thanks again

We stayed in late October and although the Welsh air was brisk the same cannot be said for the hospitality.

We stayed in the bunk house for 8, the accommodation was as stated and for the money we found it brilliant.

The pub grub was lovely and I would recommend to all!
