You can’t beat a good bit of Welsh tranquillity. An odd statement, maybe, but visit our Beddgelert campsite and you’ll soon agree. Beddgelert epitomises tranquillity. Just take a moment and absorb your surroundings. Take in the rich hues, the spectacular mountains, the sweeping forest and breathe in the air. Everyday life will soon become a distant memory.
Beddgelert is a stunning forest campsite providing all who camp here a completely relaxed, away-from-it-all holiday. Set amongst green conifer and broadleaf trees there are 195 pitches to choose from - most amongst the trees, but with others offering a more open camping experience, where stunning mountain views will delight all who occupy them. 

Of course the unique surroundings aren’t the only attractions of Beddgelert campsite. The site sits within the stunning Snowdonia National Park, which covers 2,170km2 of North Wales. 

A 10-minute drive from site will deliver you right to the foot of the National Park's star attraction – Snowdon. The more energetic may prefer to walk. From site to the mountain is around five miles through the forest before you meet the Rhyd Ddu path - just make sure you know how you’re getting back!

Snowdonia provides countless opportunities for cycling and walking offering wonderful views of the coast and countryside.

Closer to the Beddgelert campsite, Beddgelert Forest, covering 700ha of Snowdonia, has plenty of opportunities for outdoor pursuits – and you can get access them all directly from camp.

A spacious site made cosy by the forest, Beddgelert simply is tranquillity. It’s family holidays, short breaks, romantic getaways and outdoor retreats all rolled into one.

I just spent Easter Weekend at the Bedgellert campsite in Wales. The one with the railway that goes through the campsite. I have to say the campsite itself, is great, it is clean, tidy, spread out over many different levels, some under trees, some in the open, most with adequate space for a motorhome, electrics and plenty of top up water taps. The downside of this place is the staff. I have never found a campsite that has staff who are incapable of helping you. The booking site states "if you are delayed or will arrive later than expected ring the campsite direct and someone will arrange to meet you". This translates to IF YOU ARRIVE AND IT'S DARK, YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED ONTO THE SITE. ALSO YOU CANNOT HAVE A REFUND!!. I found this unacceptable as it does not state this on the booking form. Despite arguing the point, the man at the reception simply said NO Refund. I asked if he would transfer my lost night to the end of the weekend to stay an extra night, again he said NO. basically it cost me ?30 to sleep in a layby. On arrival, 4 staff were available, I was told to GO LOOK FOR A SPACE. no help whatsoever, with a huge motorhome, (8m) I navigated around the fully booked site, around trees, dead ends, tents and campers and kids, looking for the "reserved space" that I had booked 2 months earlier. in the end I gave up and parked myself on the largest space available which was reserved for SELECT customers with a picnic table. I figure that since I paid ?30 already for nothing, I deserved the picnic table. I asked about an easter egg hunt for the kids over the weekend, I was given a 5 minute lecture on the "costs of the staffing and lack of money by the forestry commission and lack of rangers blah blah blah. basically no fun arranged for the hundreds of kids around. (I arranged my own easter egg hunt for my son). ps the shop is useless. I needed urgent childrens paracetamol and they did not have anything at all. Take your own supplies if you want any.

We have just returned from a 2 week stay at the Beddgelert site and found the staff very welcoming and accomodating. We booked three separate units as there were 13 of us in total 2 Caravans and a Tent. We were able to select an area where we were all close enough together and thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. This was our 2nd visit to Beddgelert and our friends 1st. We all agreed the staff were great and the facilities perfectly adequate for our needs. Also a big bonus for North Wales SUNSHINE for the majority of our stay. Thank You.

Wet, muddy, miserable, boring, run down. Just stay at home!!
The site was much more run down than we were expecting, huge potholes on all the roads, bins overflowing, all the pitches we could see were basically muddy puddles. We only had one week off this year as we run our own business and I can honestly say I would have rather been at work. Unless your a fan of trudging around in the rain there is really very little to do here. You could go on the train if you like, but at nearly ?100 for a family of four, you might not want to fork out that much. They sell pizza on site which are advertised as available up till 8pm, on our first night my wife went to order some pizzas as it was such an nightmare trying to pitch our awning in the pouring rain we didn't have time to go to the supermarket, she was however told at 7:17 you need to give 45 minutes notice so we had to leave the site to go and find somewhere else to buy food from. It rained every day, when there was the occasional break in the rain you would see a few people wade out of their puddles only to return 5 minutes later as there is simply nothing to do here. The highlight of our stay was washing and drying our clothes. No phone signal, no TV reception, no Wifi, no kids club, no entertainment, no atmosphere. It was the most tedious, boring, stressful week of my life. We hated it, the children were bored stiff. Thankfully we did leave the site on a few occasions, if you drive for an hour in any direction there is something to do, but the reprieve is short lived when you have to return to Mordor. Thankfully we came to our senses and left early (which was what most other people seemed to be doing as well). I also overheard the staff mocking a customer who had 'the nerve' to mention the potholes, they were laughing about him and putting on silly voices while they took turns in repeating the paying customers concerns about the state of the roads. Simply terrible. If you like to get back to nature this much - just sleep rough in your local park for free. We will never be back
