What a lovely campsite, wonderful enclosed field for the dogs to run and be free in. The HOSTS were first class and nothing was too much trouble. We had a morning paper and fresh eggs delivered to our motorhome plus bread if we wanted it. Weather was not very good for the time of the year but scenery and plenty... More

We go camping quite a lot and have to admit probably one of the nicest sites I've been too. The owner Emrys is really friendly and helpful. The site although busy certainly wasn't overcrowded and pitches were well spaced so tents weren't on top of each other, The location is good for most of north wales, Only a few miles... More

Thank you very much for your positive review, greatly appreciated. We were very busy on the weekend in question, due to the fine weather and the school holidays. At peak periods of the day, 4 toilets and 4 showers sometimes struggle to cope. Hopefully we will see you again in the near future. More

We've just returned from a lovely holiday in one of the static caravans at Llys Derwen. We were initially looking for a caravan near the beach in North Wales but researched and came along this beauty! It's small and very compact and at the foot of Snowdon yet close enough for Llyn Peninsula beaches! Emrys the owner is lovely and... More

I stayed with 5 others in order to go to ZipWorld and I was very, very pleased with my selection. The owner is lovely, extremely friendly and helpful. He takes a lot of pride in the site and it really shows. The toilet/shower facilities are great, always toilet roll and hot water, they are also very clean. The site itself... More

Great campsite one of the best in North Wales. Fantastic location as a base to explore Snowdonia, Anglesey and Porthmadog. Friendly owner, hot shower, weekend cafe on site and a good pub in easy walking distance. Definitely highly recommended.

This is a small, well run, well organised, clean campsite. The owner is very friendly and helpful. All amenities were clean well maintained. Showers were free with plenty of hot water, which is just what you need after a day in the mountains.
