Latest news from the campsite
Our new childrens picture book was sold on site at the end of the August bank holiday: we had some advanced copies of "Our first Camping Trip" which has delightful pictures by Lizzie, a past warden at the site, and is about a family camping for the first time at Llyn Gwynant. Here's Pete, the book's author, showing some visiting children the sample copy at our reception...
More details of the book are coming soon - under on our Information page we will add a new item Picture book. You will be able to see some of the illustrations and can order it online!

Above is a view of the campsite on Saturday from the layby near Pen y Gwryd, the other taken from the lake shore. Meanwhile a wonderful festival wedding was taking place in the Llyn Gwynant barns, with marquee and flags in barn field.:
23rd May - preparing for the bank holiday:
Bookings for the bank holiday are not available because we don't have set pitches to book. However we are very likely to find you a pitch if you arrive on Friday. On Saturday however this cannot be guaranteed and although we do expect to accommodate you, please come as early as you can to secure a pitch. You can phone reception on 01766 890 853 on Saturday if you want to check.
It will be easier than ever to get here early as Jone's Pizza Company will be serving wood fired pizzas fro 5.00 pm on the campsite each evening of the Bank holiday - so you don't have to stop on the way for a meal, just come right along and eat here - he'll even sell you drinks to go with your meal. Pizzas are priced from just £5 and have good vegetarian options as well as meat-eaters' delights
Jone's Pizza oven and fire...
Friday, Saturday and Sunday night you can enjoy fresh wood-fired pizzas from 5.00 pm onwards on the site. If these are popular they might become a fixture for the summer. So camping just became simpler!
Saturday 20th April and the sun is shining on Llyn Gwynant, the air is warm, and campers are at last able to enjoy this wonderful environment.
Good Friday, March 29th: It is very beautiful in the valley, with bright sun, no snow at the level of our campsite, but snow on the mountains. Look what you're missing!

Saturday March 23rd
*** DEMONS and ALIENS party here has been cancelled because of poor weather **
The organisers have cancelled this private event because of treacherous road conditions, so please contact them for a refund and stay safe and warm indoors. Ironically the weather here is not so bad, we have no snow on the ground at the campsite. However the roads between us and you are another matter, so they have regretfully cancelled.
March 1st 2013 and Llyn Gwynant campsite is now open
