Groups are welcome at Llyn Gwynant campsite. Small groups do not need to book and can simply arrive and pitch together, but please keep your tents at least 3 m apart from other tents in your group, and 6 m from other groups' tents, in accordance with fire regulations. Also be aware we may require a noisebond, see below. Large groups of more than 20 people may book a group area to be sure of camping together even when the campsite is busy or to ensure pitches in a particular part of the site, see our Group areas page for details of where these group areas are. Campervans and caravans may be included with tents in some group areas.
Please note that we do not accept group bookings starting on a Bank holiday Saturday.
Groups members pay normal camping fees. However payment of all fees in advance or a deposit of £150 is needed to to confirm a booking or reserve one of our group areas.
Noisebonds: Any group on the campsite may be required to pay a noisebond of up to £20 per person. This is kept for the duration of your visit and returned as you leave, if all has been well. Where a deposit has been paid for a booking, this will be retained as a noisebond and will be refunded to you after you leave. Those who have visited the site before and have paid a noisebond, may not need to do so on subsequent visits.
Youth groups: We offer a special youth rate for scouts and school groups see our Youth information page.
Group camping at the Barns:
Large groups can use the Llyn Gwynant barns, see our Barn Group camping page.
Boat hire and activities can be organised from the campsite most weekends in the summer and every day during the high season when weather is suitable. Group rates are available for 6 or more people, see our Boat hire page and Boat group discount sheet. Adventure activities on the campsite include raft building, bushcraft, coasteering, as well as canoe and kayak instruction, and group discounts are also available, see our Activities page for more.
Group resources: A Group tally sheet, a pdf file, is available to help you plan your stay as well as aGroup calculator spreadsheet to help you determine the cost. Alternatively simply send us the numbers on a booking form and we will provide a VAT invoice for payment in advance. Groups paying in advance may be asked for a noisebond on arrival.
We provide an educational tour of the farm and an associated printed document about the farm which is available in our document library. We also offer a template Risk Assessment pdf or the corresponding Risk Assessment document that can be downloaded and incorporated into your own risk assessment. This is merely intended as a draft helpful guide and should not replace your own documents.
Normal camping rates apply for groups on the public campsite, see our Information page for details, and groups in the barns pay around £3 per person more In addition these rates may be of interest:
