Back-to-basics camping overlooking Hell's Mouth, with a simple setup and scenic views
If you're invited to a weekend getaway overlooking Hell's Mouth, you're probably going to be concerned about who's outstretching that invitation. But there's no need to worry; Hell's Mouth, known in Wales as Porth Neigwl, is actually a curiously named stretch of sandy and stony beach that Coed y Fron is situated by. This back-to-basics campsite provides an uninterrupted sea view of the four-mile rural bay, and its bell tents offer a peaceful, pre-pitched retreat ideal for exploring Mynytho and nearby Abersoch. Coed y Fron is light on amenities but big on idyllic views. Four bell tents are pitched on an elevated meadow with Hell's Mouth in front of you, the archipelago of Saint Tudwal's Islands to your left, and the mountainous peak of Foul Gron behind. The Lynn Peninsula countryside is on full display here, with the tents surrounded by sprawling acres of land from which visitors can enjoy the sunrise over its vast hilly greenery, and the sunset behind the Atlantic ocean. Though the bell tents may have been pitched before you arrive, they're awaiting your personal touch. There are no furnishings, so you'll need to bring your own sleeping mats and bedding. And be prepared for a lack of showers, too, though each tent is equipped with a personal toilet and sink. As the site is located on the land of a working farm, campers have the farm shop's produce at their fingertips, with fresh salad, fruit, and seasonable vegetables available from The Farm Gate. As the name suggests, the shop began life after the Alexander family started selling leftover eggs at their gate before it developed into the small store you'll find today, visited by locals and campers alike. Guests are encouraged to use Coed y Fron as a hub to explore the wider area. And there are plenty of sights to experience. Hell's Mouth is favoured by surfers thanks to its imposing waves, with people travelling from across the UK to take them on. The seaside village of Abersoch is a short walk away, with its rural, sheltered beach being a popular and fashionable destination and backed by restaurants, cafes, and boutique shops. Then for families, Glasfryn Parc provides go karting, archery, clay pigeon shooting, and more for both the big kids and the small ones you're camping with.

Loved glamping in the bell tents for the first time with our 2 year old! Loads of space for little ones to around and amazing views! Lovely farm shop on site for supplies and bacon butties. Owners very accommodating and friendly. We will definitely recommend to friends and visit again soon.

Perfect farm stay with sea views
We had an amazing family trip. The children absolutely loved being on the farm and the views were incredible. The car shop had a great variety of food and the sandwiches were amazing. We would definitely recommend taking a trip here, it was just perfect.

We loved staying with Karen and the team at this amazing hillside glamping tent... a back to basics experience with the most delicious fresh food farm shop at the bottom of the hill. Would highly recommend!

We loved our stay at Coed y Fron. The bell tents are well spaced out and the views are amazing! Being so close to Abersoch is also handy and a great base for exploring the area. We'd definitely recommend!

On arrival the bell tent was more than expected. There was fruit in a bag to welcome you. There was a fire pit with logs,kindling and firelighters provided. There was a shop on the farm which stocked everything you need the burgers were delicious. The hosts pointed out places of interest, the pub on the beach was a good idea.Hells mouth beach is worth a visit. The sky's at night were clear and we saw the moonlight dancing on the sea.The hosts were very welcoming and helpful nothing was too much trouble for them. The location was ideal and off the beaten track so it was quite and peaceful. We went off exploring the different beaches and historical places. We will definitely be returning summer 2022.

From the host
Situated on the stunning Llÿn Peninsula, famed for its outstanding natural beauty and mix of heritage and culture, you will be staying on a working farm. Our Bell Tents are in an elevated meadow with an uninterrupted view of Porth Neigwl (Hell's Mouth), a 4 mile long bay famed for its surfing to the front of you, St Tudwal's Islands off the coast of Abersoch to your left and behind the ever changing colours of the hill - Foel Gron. We also have our very own produce stall and Takeaway, Giát y Fferm | The Farm Gate, where you can buy produce essentials, including local milk, butter, cheese, bread and not forgetting our very own free range eggs. Yes, just a little morning stroll down the hill, across the stream and up to the farm yard to buy your breakfast bap and locally roasted coffee or an evening stop for burgers and corn on the cob before you head back to your Bell Tent for an evening campfire. Milk and milk shake vending is 24/7! Maybe a stunning sunset and a night of stargazing with the twinkling of lights from faraway farms and homesteads adding to its true serenity. Please note it may be occasionally interrupted by 'Curly' the matriarch of our Traditional Hereford cow herd reminding us that she too likes carrots!
