“ Campsite and parking area for touring caravans. „
Early on in the year my brother and his family decided to try camping, and after seeing their fantastic set up one weekend, we decided to try it too. So off to the shops to get kitted out!
As we had never been camping properly before, it was suggested that we all go together. Me my husband and his 10yr old boy and my brother, his wife and there 2 young boys. We decided to go to Barmouth as it wasn't too far away if anything went wrong.
My sister-in-law found this camp site on the internet and called them up to book us our 2 pitches (next to each other) which she said was easily done and they were very friendly towards her, we had booked for a week and had to pay £25 deposit each to secure our pitches.
A couple of days later all the info arrived telling us how to get there, what facilities there were (they are listed on the website too), how much each tent was per night, extras for gazebo's, electric etc.
We decided not to go for electric hook-up so for each tent for the week was £100 - Mon - Sat, which we thought was quite good, especially as the site has 5 stars!
On arrival we were escorted to our pitches to set up, help was available if needed and the staff were very friendly. The site does not cater for large single sex groups and mainly for families so there was no late night parties or unacceptable behaviour, and as the staff live on site they were seen to patrol every now and then keeping an eye out for any untoward behaviour which we thought was nice and made us feel safe too.
There are call buttons by the main office/shop if there are any problems which connect either to the staff or you can call the police directly if needed. The shop also stocks basic food stuffs like bread, milk, sausages, bacon, soups, pot noodles and papers. They also have a small toy selection and you can buy ice blocks from them.
The shower blocks were immaculate, and were cleaned twice daily. Disabled people were fully catered for. The wash up area was also kept very clean with plenty of sinks. There is also a portable toilet disposal area with hose to rinse etc. Also on site there is a launderette with iron and ironing board. There can be a bit of a wait for machines however, especially if people dont collect on time (all the machines have a timer so you know when to go and collect your washing).
The site was kept very clean and tidy with regular water points, bins and recycling bins. There was also a play area for the kids. All ball games however must be played on a separate field to avoid any damage or innconvienience to others, this field is also for dog walkers with a strict collect your dog mess policy (dog mess bins are position at either end of this field). You can also walk through this field to get to the pub and fish & Chip shop ( they were yummy).
On the day of leaving, we were not rushed to get off the field and the staff waved us goodbye as we drove past the office.
I would most definitely reccommend this camp site to couples and those with children, we had a fantastic time and the kids loved it! It was a shame the weather wasn't nice all week, but we still had a good time. Oh, and the pictures on the website are very accurate!
