Probably best to say at the outset, this is not a glamorous campsite, it is a farmers field with a shower block. There were sheep in the field (though could have gone to a different field further away from farmhouse and it was technically past the end of the open season), facilities such as a bar or shop are a ten minute walk into the village. But at £10 a night for two of us, it represents good value.
As far as facilities go, there are toilets, sinks, water tap and coin operated showers. The fields are generally sloping and it might be harder to find a flat spot in the busy season, there are several pita for camp fires be logs are available from the farmer. Torches are essential as it is unlit at night.
The views are spectacular looking down on the village and across the lake to the old slate quarries on the other side, from the other direction you look straight up towards Snowdon and you can cut a section off from the llanberis path and join it further up by going across the fields. The farmer was very friendly and whilst it was quiet on site (not surprising as it was November) the other campers were friendly and I guess that generally this site will attract campers who appreciate the simple pleasures of camping.
