This review is for Beddgelert - Snowdonia

Stayed for 9 nights over Easter. The site has a great location in the middle of Snowdonia. We accessed the site from Caernarfon, which was ok for towing. The route had a couple of potential pinch points but otherwise ok. Whilst the staff were friendly and helpful, this didn't make up for the general poor state of the site. Whilst I appreciate it's been a very wet winter, that doesn't excuse the numerous potholes on the tracks which showed no sign of being repaired whilst we were there. The hardstanding pitches varied considerably in size, we just managed to fit our caravan and awning on ours, though it filled with pools of water as drainage seemed poor. Other hardstandings were smaller and as it's first come first served for pitches, if you're looking to use an awning you may struggle to find a big enough pitch. Lastly the bathrooms were disappointing, we were closest to the smaller facility which was unheated and too often only managed to provide lukewarm water. I only used the other, larger facility once and whilst it was nicer, the shower was lukewarm at best. In short, great location but the site really needs some basic improvements.

when we arrived the site manager informed us that campers hadn't left so very limited to choice of pitch, very busy site with traffic movement and pitches very close together, bins over flowing, and campers arriving late and early morning. noisy site not what we would expect to find on a forest site. lovely railway on site, and a lovely dog walk, ice cream palour in the next village was lovely. pubs in village lovely food, we asked if we could swap sites but was told no refund after 24 hrs we are a family with 2 young children and 1 dog, wanting a quiet walking, family time holiday very disappointed with the site will not return. lovely dog friendly beach in port maddock.

This review is for Beddgelert - Snowdonia

We spent one night in September. We enjoyed our stay. We were slightly disappointed that the Railway was only running 2 trains each way per day, which meant you couldn't use it to have a very long visit to either Caernarfon or Porthmadog, which is why we only booked the one night. There is an excellent track to the village of Beddgelert. The site itself is very nice and we had a good choice of pitches, which are well spaced.
