Join us for a weekend camping at Nantcol Waterfalls, nestled at the foot of the Rhinog mountains. 

Far less well known than the areas in the north of the Snowdonia National Park, the Rhinogydd are a wild range of hills in central Snowdonia that are rougher than anything else south of Scotland.The Rhinog mountains are popular with hillwalkers looking for a more isolated, wilder walking experience and we plan to put on a strenuous walk to explore these hills properly. 

If mountains aren't for you, Cwm Nantcol has beautiful woods and spectacular waterfalls to explore, and we're also not far from the beach.

Showers - the showers operate on a shower card system which allows a 5-minute shower per card. These cards will be issued to campers at Reception.

Campfires - Nantcol Waterfalls allow campfires but the site is within a Tree Preservation Area and as such we can only allow the burning of manufactured logs – the collection of deadwood and live wood is not permitted. Fires require the use of Fire Baskets only, which can be bought on site or hired from Reception. We will sort a communal fire. 

Mobile signal - signal is weak at this site but, if you're desperate to get online, you can pay for wifi access. Alternatively, if you venture 100 metres up the hill on the same side as the waterfalls you should obtain 4 bars from most signal providers.

Dogs - the site permits dogs with well behaved owners. There is a charge of £4 per dog for the weekend payable on arrival to the site in cash. Dogs must be on a lead at all times when on site as this is a sheep farm - no exceptions can be made.
