Wild Penllŷn Gwyllt

5 units · Tents1 acre · Llanbedrog, Wales
Our site is in the far northwest corner of Wales UK, on the wild coastal edge of the Llŷn Peninsula, or Penllŷn in Welsh. We are surrounded by sea and look across to the mountains of Eryri / Snowdonia. The camping area is part of our private property where we live and work, along with our dog. We are restoring our land to a wildflower meadow and other nature friendly habitat, but allowing use of one field for seasonal camping and occasionally larger gatherings. We will be nearby to offer assistance and suggestions on your stay in the area, however we also ask that you are considerate and also respect our privacy, minimising noise, time spent near the house or in the garden, especially late at night. It is also essential that the gates are kept closed and access clear. We are in an ideal spot for cyclists and walkers exploring the coast of Wales (we are a short diversion from the national coast path). Low carbon travellers are welcome, with Pwllheli train station about 5 miles away and we are also on the main Pwllheli to Aberdaron bus route. We can accommodate a limited number of vehicles including camper vans and smaller motor homes (please check size with us first to ensure your motorhome is not too wide for our track). The field is a short walk from the car parking area, past the house and through the garden. There is an outdoor tap for water by the house and a composting ‘eco’ loo in the camping field. In the near future we will be building a track direct from the parking area to the field and installing a water supply in the camping area. There is a wealth of wonderful footpaths, interesting landmarks and fantastic beaches in the nearby area. The villages of Abersoch and Llanbedrog are nearby with a choice of pubs and eateries, Pwllheli has a range of larger shops. Local eggs and other produce can be bought locally too, and there is both a farm shop and village post office / general store.

Campsites near Caernarfon with horseback riding guide

Overview

Caernarfon is best-known worldwide for its castle—undeniably ranking among Great Britain’s finest mediaeval buildings. The fortress and town walls are a Unesco World Heritage Site also encompassing King Edward I’s other formidable fortifications at Harlech, Beaumaris and Conwy. But there is more to this town on the Menai Strait: primarily, its proximity to show-stopping nature. Snowdonia National Park brushes Caernarfon’s edge, with Snowdon, loftiest peak in Wales or England, close by, and a dreamy expanse of coastline rims the Llyn Peninsula just south and continues over on nearby Isle of Anglesey. A few miles from the castle are a handful of campsites offering dependable, convenient pitching.

Where to go

Snowdon & Around

One of the UK’s most popular outdoor destinations—and Britain’s highest land south of the Scottish Highlands—Snowdon commands attention from any North Wales-bound visitor. The gateway village, from where trails and rails run up the peak, is Llanberis, eight miles inland from Caernarfon. While it’s busy up Snowdon, plot a hike away from it and you’ll find glorious mountain country with ample trail space to yourself.

Southern Anglesey

Anglesey is Wales’ largest island, and its beguiling sandy coastline is a big attraction for beach-lovers, swimmers and walkers—with a coast path running around the entire shore. It’s accessed by road bridge over the Menai Strait eight miles northeast of Caernarfon. After this, it’s a few miles’ drive southwest to the campsites clustered near Southern Anglesey’s beach, the wide, powdery, forest-backed sands of Traeth Llanddwyn.

Llyn Peninsula

Travel the coast south from Caernarfon and after 11 miles, the low-lying Llyn Peninsula and its AONB begin to fan out. This tranquil green finger of land, protruding some 30 miles into the sea, has some of North Wales’ best beaches and famously challenging surfing at Porth Neigwl. Walking is excellent too—as is cycling on the quiet lanes. Excellent campsites lie scattered across the Llyn.

When to go

Weather varies wildly between the coast and the high peaks of Snowdonia National Park. You can usually depend on some wind and rain during your stay, even in summer. Caernarfon does get crowded during July and August school holidays: come outside these months if possible. May’s Caernarfon Food Festival, and mediaeval re-enactments in Caernarfon Castle during May and August, are atmospheric times in Caernarfon itself.
