I found this campsite on-line about 4 years ago, and my husband has been there a number of times to take advantage of the nearby mountain biking at Coed-y-brenin. I'd never stayed there until recently when my husband and I together with a number of friends camped there for the bank holiday weekend.
Cae Gwyn has B&B accomodation as well as a bunk house/camping barn and fields suitable for pitching tents. I think they sometime do take caravans - but they didn't when we were there. We had a lovely welcome from Sue who runs Cae Gwyn with her husband, and she remembered my huband from a previous trip. The campsite is large - but split into different fields, so you don't feel cramped. The showers and toilets are clean and there are enough of them. There are plenty of places to wash cutlery and crockery too. All in all a thoroughly pleseant camping trip - with amazing views over the hills. Go in early spring to see the new born lambs. They were 6-10 weeks when we were there and so so cute.
The campsite is quite remote - the nearest town is Dolgellau and is a few miles away, but the owners have a deal with a couple of the local pubs, and they'll run you down for a small fee and the pub will run you back. A great help when you need a couple of drinks to keep out the cold!
