The whole site and all accommodation is dog friendly (small nightly charge made).

A short drive away you will find the pretty mountain village of Beddgelert with shops, restaurants and pubs.

The beautiful sandy beaches such as Black Rock Sands (dog friendly all year round), Caernarfon Castle, Snowdon Mountain Railway and the Festiniog & Welsh Highland Railway are within easy reach.

For those wanting adventure, Snowdonia is THE place to come; not including the obvious climb up Snowdon, the highest peak in England and Wales, on our doorstep you can also take part in Rock Climbing, Kayaking, Gorge Walking, Canyoning, Pot Holing to name but a few.
