The Llyn Peninsular is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty located in the north west corner of Wales. With its attrractive coastline ​and a backdrop of the mountains of Snowdonia, the area is a popular and unspoilt destination for summer weekends.

We will be staying at Penrallt Coastal Campsite, located on the cliffs on the northern side of the peninsular. On the Saturday there will be a walk at nearby Yr Eifl (aka 'The Rivals'), a group of three modest mountains comprising:

  • Tre'r Ceiri (485 metres (1,591 ft)),
  • Garn Ganol (561 metres (1,841 ft)) and
  • Garn Fôr (444 metres (1,457 ft)

The aim will also be to incorporate a stop at Nant Gwrtheyrn, the National Welsh Language and Heritage Centre, for refreshments.

Alternatively, you will be welcome to take yourself off to one of the nearby small towns or villages, or take a walk along the coastal path. These are also options for Sunday.

Either way, this is intended to be a small, relxaed camping weekend in one of Wales' most beautiful locations.

This is a unique and unspoilt location, on the north west coast of the Llyn Peninsula, North Wales. Set back from the sea cliffs, with magnificent views over the sea and countryside. Within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty the Heritage Coastal Path crosses the site.

The 4 acres of level grassland are divided into 4 separate fields, providing spacious pitches for 20 caravans, 20 tents, 2 pods and a yurt. Here you can watch the sunset over the sea and listen to the waves gently breaking on the shore whilst lying in your tent.

Recognised by "Cool Camping" and "The Guardian" in the list of "Best Campsites in Britain".

The coastal path will lead you to rock pooling coves in 15 minutes and sandy beaches within 30 minutes walk. The small natural harbour of Porth Ysgaden, is only 5 minutes away by car.

Penrallt has been awarded Green Dragon Accreditation from the Welsh Assembly Government and Gold Standard from Marine Conservation Society for commitment to Environmental Sustainability.
