A beautiful campsite location on the Llyn Peninsula in North Wales.

Our Llanystumdwy Club campsite in North West Wales is located between mountains and sea in an area of natural beauty. Its position makes it ideal for exploring both the Llyn Peninsula and Snowdonia National Park – both great walking areas.

Lovely views extend over the rolling countryside from the campsite which is bordered by tree and dry stone walls. The site boasts 70 pitches – many sloping – spread out over a large field. Facilities are clean tidy and include toilets, showers, a laundry and dog walk.

It’s a short walk to the village of Llanystumdwy. Here you’ll find a pub serving home-cooked food and a museum dedicated to Lloyd George who lived in the village until the age of 16.

Criccieth to the east of the campsite has a castle and plenty of independent shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants. It also has a long esplanade along the seafront and a sandy beach. Further on Porthmadog is the gateway to the Snowdonia National Park. It’s also home to the Ffestiniog and Welsh High Railways. Jump on a train at either end of the town, enjoy the mountain scenery.

Caernarfon, Portmadog, Pwhelli and Port Merrion are all easily accessible by either bus, car or train from the campsite.

WiFi

100% coverage cannot be guaranteed due to rural location, weather conditions and changing flora. These can cause variable signal strength. Hotspots are available. Prices.

Worth Noting

The majority of pitches are sloping and chocks will be required. Club Service Pitches are only 10 amp. Due to the site being within the International Dark Sky Park, there are none of the usual lighting schemes, therefore a torch is considered an essential. Members get 20% off West Highland Railway at Porthmadog by showing their membership cards. Excellent coarse fishing is available within a mile from the site.

Eat Local

There is a twice-weekly Farmers’ Market in Pwllhelli. 2 miles away in Criccieth there are a number of pubs and restaurants offering great food using locally-sourced produce.

This review is for Llanystumdwy

Before booking this site I read some of the reviews and thought that some people were having a general moan about this site. How wrong was I, so I apologise for those thoughts. On arrival we were greeted by two friendly Wardens who showed us to our pitch. No matter how we tried to level our caravan we could not achieve a decent level. The caravan was subjected to a level where it was really unsafe to get into and out of the caravan in a safe manner due to the steep slope that is all over this site. there wasn't a level pitch anywhere to be seen. I have, in sixteen years of caravaning, never seen caravans with their front steadies wound so high and mounted on bricks or pieces of wood, to get any sort of level, with the rear of the caravan touching the grass. I guess motorhome owners have their owns stories on how to level their vehicles. We will not be returning to this site anytime soon. If you are adventurous and don't mind living on a steep slope with your caravan or tent not being level then this is the place for you.

Divided into 2 fields, the lower one in particular is sloped.

This review is for Llanystumdwy

Divided into 2 fields, the lower one in particular is sloped. Not too bad with a tent, although items kept rolling about, but I noticed motor home users struggling to level up. Facilities satisfactory although prefer showers, loos etc. to be in one room. Traffic noise is down to personal tolerance but it was loud during the day. I am glad I did not camp near the road. Close to nearby towns and other amenities, not so good for a chill out. There did not appear to be any parking available if you arrived back at site after 11. Enjoyed nearby David Lloyd George museum.

This review is for Llanystumdwy

I have never felt the need to review a site before but thought that others should know that the description of this site as having some sloping pitches that require chocks etc really does not communicate how difficult this site is. Caravans propped up by piles of blocks under the stays is one thing but there is no way that a 6m campervan like ours could get anywhere near level on any of the pitched we tried. With ramps under our front wheels as high as we could manage the sliding door was very hard to open and showers/sinks were never going to drain. Nice site if you can level up and fantastic area to camp but be prepared!!!!!

A potentially good site which is much in need of refurbishment.

This review is for Llanystumdwy

A potentially good site which is much in need of refurbishment. The young wardens are doing their best. However the shower facilities are somewhat 'odd' (I don't think I've seen a separate shower and toilet block elsewhere on the circuit) although plentiful hot water. If laundry facilities are provided please can commercial washers and dryers be installed. We left with a caravan draped in still wet washing as a result of a)inadequate spinning and b) very inadequate tumble drying Unfortunately the weather was such that we were not able to dry outdoors. As others have mentioned the site is not an entirely rural idyll to its placement between two roads which both carry heavy goods traffic. However, it would be a shame not to invest in this site as it is set in beautiful surroundings and within easy reach of places of interest. Caravanning and Camping Club please take note of this review and others. Invest some money!
