Welcome to the Gwaenynog Farmhouse campsite page. – We’re Open!!
We have an FAQ page here, so read this if you have any questions…
We’re now part of the Freedom Camping Club – a different type of club, which is free to join. You even get a free night at any of their associated sites, but you have to join… we will ask for your membership number to redeem that voucher. You do have to be a member to camp here, but as it’s free to join – it’s worth it! Head to their website to find more campsites that you can stay at – they’re a growing community.
Take advantage of Our Heroes offer… for all those NHS, Care workers and Armed Forces & Veterans. We will need to see your ID.
Please let us know if you’re travelling as a group – better yet, make one booking with all your pitches, so we know who is together – we will endeavour to put you at least nearby. It makes our life easier. Thank you.
Bordered by ancient woodland and hedgerows that offer seclusion, the campsite offers some wonderful views. Quiet country lanes, ideal for walking or cycling, and you can join up with marked walks such as Glyndwr’s Way or Ann Griffiths walk (a mile away); or utilise other public footpaths and bridleways that cross the surrounding farmland. We’re open from Easter to the end of September, weather dependent!
- Dogs are allowed to roam on the campsite but must be monitored and kept under control at all times. We also expect owners to clear up after their dogs. Also, please be considerate of other campers. All we ask is that you let us know you’re bringing a dog (on the booking page).
- We allow fires with a fire pit (we have these available for hire at £6.50 per night, or bring your own and we can provide you with a tub of logs – we will also provide a stand for your own fire pit, so please let us know if you’re bringing one). (Subject to availability!)
- There’s also BBQs available to hire, either standard or large, depending on the size of your party. £6.50 including one bag of charcoal, or £8.50 for the large kettle BBQ, including 2 bags of charcoal. (Subject to availability!)
- ALL standard pitches are on grass – however, we may be able to offer a hardstanding if needed, just let us know.
- We are licensed, so can offer drinks from our fully stocked bar (at local pub prices) in our Dutch Barn. We also do Takeaway food, see our menu here.
- The Farmhouse also offers B&B accommodation, so non-camping family members can also be catered for (subject to availability.)
- Don’t fancy cooking breakfast? Then let us do it for you – we offer breakfasts to campers from £1.50 to £7.50 for a ‘full monty’ and tea/coffee, served in our Dutch Barn, or if you’ve booked your pitch already, head over to the Camper Breakfast Ordering page here.
- We can offer lighter options including a Bacon or Sausage sandwich at £3.50 per Butty, or fish/veggie/vegan options too.
- We also offer food for campers – we have a bar meals/takeaway menu available from the Dutch Barn here.
- The toilet and shower block is just a short stroll from the pitches. Chemical and grey water waste, plus fresh water is all nearby.
Price per pitch is £25 without electric or £32 with EHU.
(Please note: A pitch means up to 2 adults and up to 5 children, with one car. So, if you’re a group of more than 2 adults, we charge an additional £3 per adult per night. Also, please book if you plan to bring a second car, as we charge £2 per night per extra car. You can book this online too.)
Update 2022 – unfortunately we have had to increase the cost of the electric hook-up because of the higher electricity costs we’re now being charged. Obviously if you have solar or no real need, then just book a standard pitch. Thank you.
To check availability or to book, please choose your date and check for availability using the search button – up on the top right of this page (or at the bottom if on a phone!). You can book either a standard pitch or one with Electric Hook Up (EHU).
How to get here:
As it depends where you’re coming from, we guide you only the last 2-3 miles to reach us – your route will vary, depending on your starting point. (We recommend using Google or Bing Maps rather than our postcode to find us, as there are 8 farms on that postcode!! Plus it takes you to our neighbour, not us.)
So, at the crossroads of the B4382 and the A495 take the turning signposted to Dolanog, marked 4 miles to Dolanog. (See map on the left.) After approx. two miles (it does seem longer) take the second left and head up the hill. It wiggles and undulates a bit, but ignore the first turning on the left, then once you reach the staggered crossroads, please turn left – the signpost says Dolanog 1 mile to the right… (Any satnav will be telling you to turn right at this junction, but that is taking you to another farm.)
Look out for our yellow sign opposite the junction – it tells you to turn left!
Our drive is the first on the left after about 300 yards, set-back from the road. (And with another yellow sign!) There are also slate signs with Gwaenynog and the drive is about 150 yards. Please then pull up in the yard and report to reception that you’ve arrived. We will then guide you to the campsite. Please do not go straight onto the site.
We recommend the What3Words app, which is brilliant at bringing you straight here – ours are splashes.grazes.goes – although if towing a caravan, we recommend that you consult a map beforehand, as there are lots of narrow lanes, and they may bring you in a different route.
