You can walk along Barmouth promenade from the site right into town, and when the tide is in you can walk on the promenade. It takes 20-30 mins to walk.
During busy periods a land train runs from the centre of Barmouth prom to the end right opposite the site footpath.

The maximum number of dogs is 2 per unit, (or more at management's discretion. Please check in advance) They must be kept on a lead whilst on site and all fouling cleared up immediately.
There are some great walks nearby and your dog will love Barmouth beach, with a huge zone available year-round for walkies.

We allow for one car per pitch. There is a fee for additional cars and we must have prior notification/agreement of how many. Some pitches can accommodate more than one vehicle and others cannot. You may be asked to park additional cars away from your pitch.

We currently have one electric charge point for an EV. A fee is payable in Reception.

There are pubs in Barmouth ranging from the foodie establishments to the lively bars offering entertainment during busy periods. The nearest pub is the Min-y-Mor, on Barmouth promenade (about a 10 minute walk away).
There is no bar on site as we are very much a families and couples site, and we do not allow excess noise at night. Our shop does have an off-licence.

Open fires are not permitted. Small barbeques are allowed, using charcoal or similar fuel. If using disposable barbeques, please always use the bricks we provide to keep them off the grass, and ensure you have water handy to extinguish it (taps are located throughout the site).

If you have booked electric hook-up please note that the appliances are limited to 10amps. Ordinary household kettles etc will trip the unit. You need to bring specialist camping appliances.
Please also bring your own mains hook-up cable.
Please observe all safety advice including rolling out cables fully to prevent overheating and fire risk.
I would like to reserve a specific pitch or area. May I?
Whilst our aim is to please all our customers, we do not have the capacity to honour all requests.
Please be prepared to be flexible and by all means let us know at the time of booking if you have a preferred area but bear in mind we can never guarantee a specific request. This is to allow for the smooth running of the site for all and to ensure we do not promise anything we cannot deliver in case of unexpected issues arising.
