Decided to go camping with the family over the August bank holiday weekend and searched the various sites in the lakes and Wales and was getting silly prices of £35 and over per night for a tent and minimum of 3 nights on bank holidays. After much searching came across Barcdy caravan and camping site near Porthmadog in Snowdonia area at £42 for 2 nights ,no extra charges for large tent or teenager . What a gem of a find, it is in a beautiful location about 3 miles from Portmerion (location of the series "the prisoner" ) a must to visit when in the area, you will be gobsmacked and think you are in a town in southern italy. The campsite is well set out ,the toilets, showers and laundry facilities are the cleanest and best I have ever seen on a campsite. showers are large individual private cubicles and FREE!!! Yes free, no tokens and no coins needed .There are also private showers in ladies and gents for parents with small children. A freezer is made available for your icepacks, again no charges( a donation is asked for to be put in the air ambulance donation box). The owners are nice and friendly and very helpful. Beware there is no shop so take what you are likely to need, there is a Tesco in Porthmadog 5 miles away. There is also no bar or entertainment so if you want a lively noisy site then look elsewhere. But if you want a nice clean family place to camp then this is highly recommended as noisy drunk campers are not tolerated. We will certainly be back.
