Bolmynydd Camping Park
Bolmynydd Camping Park, Llanbedrog, Pwllheli, Gwynedd, LL53 7UP
It is no wonder that campers and caravanners alike are attracted to the serene shelter of the Llanbedrog headland. The problem is that some nearby campsites cater for the lowest common denominator, packing in caravans, then squeezing in a few tents as an afterthought. However at family-run Bolmynydd, campers are treated as well as those clumsy caravans, enjoying unmatched views of the coast, Llŷn Peninsula and the towering peaks of Snowdonia.
Rhodri and Ruth, Bolmynydd's charming proprietors, do a grand job maintaining the site. There are two camping fields (the bottom being more spacious) with flat, generously-sized and clearly marked pitches. In the peak summer months Bolmynydd is often full, but copes well due to its spacious feel and planted hedges, creating corners of privacy. Accommodation aside, it's the little touches that really make your stay memorable. Touches like lighting the paths in the dark, numerous water points (so you don't need to trek to the main block), free Wi-Fi and a handy dog-walking area.
So, what’s there to do? Well, if you've come to this neck of northern Wales the chances are you’re in pursuit of outdoor activities, typically wet ones. Sailing off Pwllheli and Abersoch produces an impressive range of sailing conditions. From the relatively sheltered surroundings in the bay, ideal for learning the ropes, to the more demanding offshore waters, it's not difficult to see why so many top sailing events are held in this region.
The benefits of Bolmynydd’s flawless location doesn’t end there. The Llŷn Peninsula Coastal Path is within easy access and offers ramblers the opportunity to stride along the edge of Britain. Whilst en route, pay a visit to Aberdaron – there’s a cute café or two, a pub, quaint little church and the chance to get on a boat to visit the legendary Bardsey Island.
