Welcome to the Gwaenynog Farmhouse campsite page.
Although currently closed due to the Welsh Coronavirus lockdown, you can plan ahead and book for the Spring & Summer 2021. We’re not taking payment until 3 days before arrival, so as to stay flexible in these strange times.
We have a FAQ page here, so read this before you book or if you have any questions, check it out first…
Please let us know if you’re travelling as a group – better yet, make one booking with all your pitches, so I know who is together – we will endeavour to put you at least nearby. It makes our life easier – if you book separately, we may not be able to accommodate you near to each other. Thank you.
We’re Covid Confident, Good To Go Wales, and have taken time to get things in place to try and ensure you have a wonderful visit.
NB: To remain as flexible as possible, we’re not taking payment until 3 days before arrival. (We send you a separate payment link, once you’ve booked…)
Bordered by ancient woodland and hedgerows that offer seclusion, the campsite offers some wonderful views. Quiet country lanes, ideal for walking or cycling, 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!
- Waste – we’d be grateful if you would take your large items of rubbish home with you. We do have bins in the toilet and shower area, but please separate recycling and general waste.
- 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.
- We allow fires only 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 the wood – we provide a stand for your own fire pit on, so please let us know if you’re bringing one).
- ALL pitches are on grass – however, we can offer hardstanding elsewhere, let us know.
- We are licensed, so can offer drinks from our bar. 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 at £7 for adults and £4.50 for children, in our Dutch Barn, anytime from 9am, so please check with us on arrival, or if you’ve booked already, head over to the Breakfast Ordering page here.
- Or we can offer a lighter option of Bacon or Sausage sandwich at £3 per Butty. Just let us know.
- We also offer food for campers via our a la carte menu, just check it out here and let us know your choice 24 hours ahead of your arrival. Alternatively we have takeaways available from the bar 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 £30 without electric or £35 with.
(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.)
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. 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, but keep going) 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 on the gate opposite the junction, and by the crossroads.
Our drive is the first on the left after about 300 yards, set-back from the road. (And there’s 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.
