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.

Convenient site in fabulous scenery
Great location. Convenient for walking and catching trains. Very friendly, helpful staff. Good, clean toilet facilities. Quiet secluded pitches. Useful shop. Shame no WiFi or even mobile signal on site.
Unit Type: Caravan
Great site, excellent facilities.
Enjoyed a 3 night stay at Beddgelert. Great location and site has excellent facilities and very friendly staff. Only downside was that we hear there is a planning application to transform the site into a holiday village with chalets etc to cater for the 21st century nouveau rich. Hope the application is rejected because we plan to return.

We've just returned from an 8 night stay at this site, our first here, and have had a wonderful break. From the moment we arrived until our farewell, all the team at Beddgelert were superb and couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. We loved the site with plenty of choice of pitch and plenty of variety too, all within the forest and with a feeling of peace and tranquility throughout and plenty of space too. The area has a lot to offer, being on a mountain pass for outdoor activities and easy access to Porthmadoc, Caernarfon and the Llyn Peninsula. The site facilities, toilets, showers and other facilities were all as you would hope and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this site – we will be back Thanks Joanne and Phil

We have stayed at Beddgelert camp site over 45 years now, it's like coming home now when we spot the Hebog skyline. Perfect weather this visit, that must be a first. We timed our visit to coincide with the end of bank holiday so enjoyed leisured camping as the site wasn't crowded out. It was idyllic with the bluebells in the wood, the babble of the stream ( very little water due to prolonged dry weather) and the steam trains puffing past the site daily. Along with the trains, a bus service made it possible to do a number of different hill walks without needing to take our van off site. The toilet block that we remember as state of the art when it was built 30? years ago was looking a bit tired but quite serviceable and clean. We were dumbfounded to read notices on the site entrance announcing that the future of this wonderful unique site was in jeopardy owing to a planning application, what a travesty! We love the informality of the layout where you can camp in a group with your friends or find a secluded spot for just your unit.

Excellent campsite
The campsite is in a lovely location, we camped by the stream, the facilities were really clean and the staff were really friendly. It has a well stocked shop with fresh pastries available every morning it even has microwaveable meals for sale with a microwave you can use. Lovely surroundings and walks. Couldn't fault it would definately go again.

Fantastic Site
The site exceeded our expectations with friendly staff and beautiful surroundings not to mention the on site bakery! There were so many walks directly from the campsite and we only had time to explore a few of them. We would definitely recommend staying on this site!

Fantastic camping!!
Absolutely one of the best sites we've visited. Very wooden and felt quiet . The staff were incredibly helpful, happy to offer walking advice, always smiling and positive! They clearly love their job as some mornings and evenings they were there helping people book in or answer any questions. We're coming back in July for 10x nights and cannot wait!!

Stunning Setting
My wife and I, plus her family, have returned from a long Bank Holiday weekend at the Beddgelert Campsite in Snowdonia. Stunning is all I can say, the scenery was incredible, even if the British weather did give us one or two showers! The site is easy to get around, nicely shaded by the woods and peaceful! The Welsh Highland Railway which skirts the site, including a request stop at the site, is a welcome bonus. Being able to watch a steam train pass from my tent was a real plus! The warm welcome we had and, staff on site were all excellent! The facilities were always clean and a pleasure to use. We had one of the 7 or 8 tent pitches with Electric Hook up. The pitches were spacious and, the wood chipping base meant out tent ground sheet remained clean despite the weather! Rock pegs are a must, and a strong arm! Getting around the site at night did require a torch, as there were few lights around, as a result though, the night sky was amazing! There was no mobile phone signal on site or the near area but, this was no bad thing! We were able to enjoy an unconnected weekend away!
