“Lovely campsite ”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

We had our first family camping trip here and it was excellent. The owners are very friendly and the showers and toilets are spotless. The laundry room and washing facilities are amazing. The field we pitched our tent in was lovely and flat with very useful picnic tables. There is a lovely wood behind which the kids loved exploring and everyone who was there was very friendly. The location is perfect and there are plenty of places to explore.

First class would defo return.

We stayed 10 nights at this brilliant campsite. As a family with young children, it was very well equipped, with plenty of space to play. We have been camping as a family several times and I can easily say that this was the best site we have stayed on. The washing up and laundry facilities are great, and the showers and toilets are spotless. The location is wonderful for exploring all of the many attractions in the area. We will definitely be back to stay again in the future.

First time to Barcdy and originally I discounted it from my search as it had no children's play area and as I have a six year old boy it's nice for him to have somewhere to meet other children. However I couldn't have got it more wrong! We stayed in a tent with electric hook up at the lower site and found this to be the perfect playground for kids, a tree swing , fields to roll, scooter, race down safely watched by parents, tents camped around the edge so there is a lovely big central communal play area for families to play cricket, football etc. A picnic bench at every pitch is a handy extra. There is also a pleasant bit of woodland to wander through. Pitches are large and well marked out, Toilet/shower facilities are immaculate, everything is well looked after , good washing up and laundry facilities and owners very friendly. We visited Harlech castle - and the beautiful Harlech beach(twice). Also spent an afternoon at Barmouth. We had a lovely time and will recommend to friends.

Thank you so much for your really nice review. So glad to know that you enjoyed your holiday and that the children had a good time too. We have always wondered at how children play so happily in such simple surroundings, even in this day and age!

This was the family's first camping trip, including a 2 year old and a 9 month old. The site was perfect for us. Large open fields with children running around, excellent facilities that were cleaned several times a day, no queuing, tonnes of hot water, and a large fridge and freezer. Even when my 2 year old got the owner out of bed by banging on the door wanting his milk for breakfast he scarcely lost his smile. But, once again, sorry for that! Can't wait to return.

We have been a few times to Barcdy over the last years and we keep going back. The place is very well organised and the owners who are very friendly work very hard to keep the site in tip-top shape.

We camp in our tent and use the electric hook-up.

There are rules at this site, but that suits us - we don't particularly like music and camp fires. As a result it is very peaceful for a getaway from the daily grind. The phone signal is poor - but it is a good opportunity to put your iphone away!

The toilets, showers and utility room are spotlessly clean - and I mean spotless!

Perfect for couples and families and good access for Snowdonia and the many things you can do in that part of the world.

Our first camping trip and we couldn't have found a better site.
Beautiful scenery and great facilities meant that our 3 night stay couldn't have been better.
I really cannot fault this site at all. All the facilities where clean and to a high standard and the whole atmosphere was peaceful and relaxing 10/10
We will defiantly be going back soon.
Many thanks and well done, the site is a credit to you.

We arrived at Barcdy on the 1st of June (for 4 nights) just as the site was going into off peak time. You would never tell that the week before was peak - the grass was immaculate, as was the rest of the site.

We were greeted by a lovely lady (the owner?) who was very helpful, letting us know all the options for electric tent pitches and advising which might best meet our needs. We decided on the main field to the front of the site because of the views and easy access to the toilets, showers, wash house and freezers.

We pitched easily with good reach to the electric hook-up and had more than enough room in the pitch for our tent, tarp and car! I really appreciated that the pitches were clearly marked, (although it wasn't particularly needed this time as there were only three other tents in the field) as the boundaries were very clear.

There was ample facilities available, including the use of freezers and 10p ice pack loan. The facilities were immaculate - I am sure the toilets must have been cleaned after each user, they were that clean! You are able to BBQ (there are bricks to prevent scorching the grass) and there are recycling facilities. There were also plenty of picnic benches that campers were able to use which saves on bringing along extra equipment such as a camping table.

They warn about traffic noise from the road outside but it is very minimal, especially as there is works going on, so it comes in batches rather than constantly. We found that the birds masked a lot of it too, as they sat in the hedge tweeting to each other as dawn came.

The other campers were all lovely too and we seemed to create a bit of a community, which made for a safe and happy holiday. We were always able to find a member of staff to ask questions to, as well, which was helpful when we needed to gain access to the freezers.

Overall, we found Barcdy to be the perfect place to stay with easy access Harlech, the beach and many other attractions including the Slate Caves which were perfect for a wet day. The views from the field are lovely too and at the right time of year, there are stunning sun sets to watch as you relax from the comfort of your tent.
