Stayed the week commencing 24/8/12 with my partner, son, mother & brother.
The park is clean & well maintained, although the elderly/disabled may struggle to get to caravans at the back of the park on foot as it is situated on a steep incline. Saying this however, my brother has cerebral palsy & we managed fine by taking him up & down in the car.
It is also worth noting that you only have to cross the road & walk over a railway bridge to reach the beach. The nearby town of Barmouth can be walked to from this beach, & is a good walk.
The caravan was clean, welcoming, & fitted to a high standard. Due to the incline & positioning of the caravans, I believe that all are treated to the same amazing views of the bay as ours was. Our accommodation had a slabbed patio area with seating, as did the majority of the other caravans. The couple that did not have this had small grassed areas.
We never had opportunity to use the pool, but apart from the occasional debris which is expected with it being outdoors, it was always clean & tidy.
The play park is small but a modern timber structure with wood chip & my four year old son enjoyed it immensely.
Although we didn't go in the bar, the one night my mother & brother went down it was closed despite the signage saying it would be open. However when we went past when it was open there were a few people using both the small game room & the lovely outdoor patio who all seemed to be enjoying themselves & there was a pleasant atmosphere.
Regrettably I did not eat in the restaurant but from what I understand it is held in high regard & when I looked at the menu it had some wonderful dishes advertised.
The only disappointing aspect was the parks wi-fi, which we were going to pay to use but at £6 a day was a no go for us.
We will definitely stay again next year as we had a lovely, peaceful time here. It is great for middle aged couples & families with young children though teenagers may find themselves bored.
Would highly recommend, & worth noting that this appeared to be the highest quality accommodation in the area.
