Eisteddfa Caravan & Camping Site
Reviewed 4 August 2013

We arrived here on the off chance having decided to come camping that morning. After deciding to head to Porthmadog and finding somewhere when we got there, I saw some reviews and gave the site a call to see if there was any availability. My call was answered by a lovely lady who said that there was availability and we should just turn up.

On turning up at the site, we were greeted by the owners who gave us all the information we needed and invited us to use a pitch or either of the fields. We decided to camp in Cricceith field and had a fabulous view of the sea with only a couple of people around us.

The field is on a slight slope and does get a lot of wind but we weren't worried at all by that and the slope wasnt very noticeable.

The facilities for showering and toilets were excellent. Extremely clean every time we used them.

It is around a 25 min walk into Cricceith which is a lovely little town and well worth a wander. We walked into Porthmadog the next day which took around an hour.

We would definitely recommended staying here to anyone and hope to be back here again very soon. And a special thank you to the owners who kindly gave us a jump start when our van had an electrical fault!

Our first visit to Eisteddfa left a very favourable impression.We had a friendly greeting by the wardens and the facilities were maintained spotlessly for our entire 5 day stay. There was plenty of space in the camping field to chose from when we arrived and although there were sheltered areas we were able to chose a spot with both sea and mountain views.Just a note- the camping fields do slope but there was enough space for us to just pitch the tent to account for the slope. I believe there are a numbered level emplacements in 2 smaller fields.

Booked for May Bank Holiday only 4 days before arrival and were given 2 very large pitches with hook ups next to each other , due to a puncture en route we didnt arrive at the site til 9pm but we were warmly recieved by the owners and shown to our pitch. The site is quiet and very well cared for with the toilet block being cleaned what seemed like hourly !! The kids enjoyed the small playground but enjoyed building a den in the woods even more . Criccieth town is about a half hour walk with plenty of shops , pubs and restaurants . Excellent value and would definately stay here again if visiting the area in the future.

We have been coming here for 7 years at various time of holiday season. The site is 1 1/2 miles from Criccieth beach and 2 1/2 miles from Black rock sands. The site is family run, always welcoming and very helpful. The site has a number of seasonal pitches and large camping fields, all are well maintained. The owners make sure that noise is kept to respectable levels and strive to make this a family campsite. The site has shower blocks that are clean, good washing up facilities, for the children there are two play areas, large playing field and a games room. There are three supermarkets available locally so shopping for your trip is easy.
To summarise a lovely site run by a lovely family.

Without any reservations in hand, we were looking for another campground in the area for a place to stay the night when we drove by this place. Serendipity definitely in our favor. Very well cared for and excellent, peaceful surroundings. A bit off the beaten track, but once found definitely an excellent campground and excellent value at that.

A weeks family camping here in variable weather, but a lovely camp with a good location. Bus route to criccieth, short drive. Even close enough to walk to which has pubs, restaurants, shops etc. Site quiet and any noisy neighbours were politely told to keep it down! V clean toilet/washing facilities. piping hot water and children's play area.
The camp is well managed by Drew and warden Dave.
Tipis and a cocoon for those without tents/caravans. Fishing lakes right next door too. Aldi, lido, tesco and outdoor/camping shop short drive away. Not a wild, isolated camp, (dont allow real fires) but a lovely green space near to a charming seaside town with pubs, beach & castle..
We will return!
