Traditional camping in grassy farm meadows with an excellent location.

When the wind gusts and the Atlantic begins to churn, the south westerly swell that funnels into the Irish Sea makes for some of the best surfing in Wales. Posied on the southern face of the Llyn Peninsula, Porth Neigwl is a beach that often bears the brunt of it and if you can’t find waves here you can guarantee the surrounding beaches will have even less. Throughout the year Porth Neigwl is peppered with surfers whose custom makes the surrounding countryside a bustling spot for campsites. One such place can claim to have been here since the early days, and its decade of welcoming guests is testament to its simple but effective charm. 'Two grassy fields opposite a farmhouse' is the speedy way to describe Rhydolion campsite. No bells. No whistles. Just an easy-going campsite with the simple necessities you need and a tip-top location.

Well, when we say a speedy description, we mean it. There is more here than blades of grass and a pleasant farmer, but it’s the traditional old feel of the place that really makes it stand out. Those who bag spaces in the first, larger field, will find electrical hook-up points, while the gateway into the second is adjacent to a well-converted cow shed that houses a clean shower and toilet block, along with several washing up sinks. In both paddocks guests can pitch where they like, though John and Catherine always ask campers to use the edges of the site so that a large open space is left in the centre of the field, allowing ample room to kick a ball about or fly a kite.

While the main sanitary block has everything required, those who cross the lane to the farmhouse will find a second building that also has toilets and showers with the added bonus of electricity. A laundry room here has a washing machine and dryer, while fridges and freezers mean you won’t be short of somewhere to stash your ice-packs in the sunny summer months. Also on the farmhouse side of the road is a quaint children’s playground, surrounded by traditional stone walls and sheep grazing in the next door field.

From Rhydolion there is plenty to do nearby, and not just the surfing back at Porth Neigwl beach, half a mile away. The well known boating hot-spot of Abersoch is a mile down the road, supplied with top eateries and interesting independent shops. Then, of course, there are the numerous excellent beaches that make the Llyn Peninsula so famous, separated from one another by craggy ridges and rocky headlands, all best viewed by walking the coastal footpath. For more serious walkers, heading back inland rewards you with Snowdonia National Park, a never-ending playground for lovers of the outdoors.
