Barcdy Caravan & Camping Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 August 2014

Been back to this campsite 3 times now. Perfect for young children. Tidy and worthy of a thumbs up on here. The couple who run it are very friendly and amenities are well kept. The views over the welsh mountains is outstanding.

Thank you very much for your nice review. We love seeing you and your young son here - it gives us great pleasure to watch you both 'skateboarding' down the hill together. Best holiday a little boy could ever have!

Felt compelled to write another rave review. This place is fantastic and I have been coming since I was 2 yrs old (I'm almost 35) and plan on returning with my own children every opportunity we get. My dad has been coming for over 50 years and we can't fault the place. The facilities are clean and I love how everywhere there are signs by the owners explaining how things work or giving helpful hints. We had a choice of tent pitches, despite it being the summer holidays we never queued for showers or felt like the site was over crowded. Everything on this site is so well looked after, it's such a great place to be. Who cares that there is no play area - my 5 and 2 yr old loved exploring the woods, playing in the tree swings and just enjoyed being in such a picturesque place. We have already planned our next visit next year and we are planning on staying longer. I am having withdrawal symptoms from the peace and quiet!

Thank you so much for your kind review that brings back lovely memories of years gone by and friendships that have survived those years. Barcdy is very much a family place and it is lovely to see you all return with your children. Makes us feel very old though!

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.
