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, with stunning mountain views.

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 access them all directly from camp.

On site there is also a useful shop, selling groceries including fresh bread and hot coffee as well as essential camping equipment. The Beddgelert site even has its own station for the Welsh Highland Railway, which runs from Caernarfon Porthmadog.

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.

Great place for the family
This is the first time we had stayed at Beddgelert and the camp site is fantastic. There are lots of pitrches to choice from around the campsite and there is a park for the kids as well as lots of trails that you can explore. There is a stream nearby which on hot days would keep the kids amused for hours. The staff where very helpful and friendly, the shop is well stocked, but you will need to go into the village for wine (just a tip for the parents). The wash facilities where very clean and plenty of toilets and sinks as well as showers. The setting is stunning and on the weekend we went the weather was great but I would say it would be just as nice is the pouring rain. In summary a great campsite for all the family and we look forward to heading back during the summer and doing some long walks.

Lovely Spot!!
I took my husband as part of his 40th birthday surprise week, and the site is stunning. We had bad rain the first day and the biting insects were out in force, so I'd recommend taking some spare shoes and deet!! The people working the site were friendly, and the on site shop offers fresh bread & patisserie bits to order for the next morning. Facilities were clean, lots of bins for dog poo and general waste. We will definitely be back.

Friendly staff, clean and we'll maintained.
The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The site is well maintained and clean although the red oak toilet block could do with a little t.l.c. The walks around the forest were beautiful and very accessible from the site. Our pitch was brilliant, it was slightly secluded which we like with picturesque views. Although the weather was mixed we throughly enjoyed our week and would definitely stay there again.

Fabulous site
Love this site have stayed many a time. Friendly helpful staff, with some good pitches, and really good facilities. Serious midgeys this time though!!!

Lovely campsite with outstanding staff!
We had a lovely stay at Beddgelert, it was set in a brilliant area that was accessible to all of the activities we wished to do. The campsite itself was in a lovely setting, we were right by a river which was lovely! The staff were amazing! Unfortunately our car broke down and we were a bit stuck. 2 of the staff were particularly helpful and they were so helpful, I do not know what we would have done without them. The toilet blocks have everything you need. There are not marked pitches on the tent fields which means you can choose where you pitch up which is nice, however the pitches and some of the roads and pathways could have been more maintained. Overall we has a fantastic holiday there and can highly recommend it. Just remember to take you mosquito spray!

Brilliant site, lovely staff but tired facilities
Love this site, have visited before and will again, but the washrooms etc definitely need an overhaul - hooks missing in showers, toilets don't flush efficiently, some toilet pans coming away from wall. No bin in wash up room.

Lovely location. Shame about midges
Great camp site but two negatives. One is, beware the time of year. Midges tend to be in a lot of camp site in Wales around this time and they are very unforgiving! But that is just life. The other is that tent pitches are not allocated here. So you see people throwing tents up and parking cars in very silly places. This means things can get complex when trying g to squeeze a tent in. Again, that's life. Overall it is a great site with good facilities. Well placed for the best walks in Britain.

Location great for Snowdon, midges were numerous
This campsite is in a wood. Warm and moist the midges were numerous and biting. Good basic facilities. Friendly staff and you had to find your own pitch somewhere in the wood. This was a challenge as people had parked randomly and pitched first. First come first served approach. Good site to access Snowdon and walkable into town. Downside were the midges.
