The Owner Says
One of three south-facing pitches on a raised slate plateau beside the Dyfi estuary, separated from each other by shrubs and each with a fire place, .
They are accessed through a traditional working boatyard and a short 100m coastal path (wheelbarrow provided!). Toilets, showers and washing up facilities are located within the boatyard. Firewood can be purchased either from the main office or by the carpenter's boat.
The Owner Says
Camping and glamping in a working boatyard with an exceptional location on the Dyfi estuary.
This small, friendly boatyard on the Dyfi estuary, is located at an old slate works and quay in the Snowdonia National Park.
The boatyard is run by John Wassell and Geoff Hill, the day to day management of the yard is done by boat builder Giles Thaxton.
We have established a small, slightly eccentric, sustainable resource to be used by those interested in the outdoors.
We have a slipway and boat hoist, moorings & hard standing for smaller boats, toilets, showers, camping and holiday cottages.
Located 3 miles upriver from Aberdyfi bar and on the A493
There are toilets and showers in an ablutions building near the car parking area. Firewood is available for sale (by the bag or wheelbarrow load) and small campfires are permitted in the three fireplaces. Pitches have outstanding sea views (partly because they are practically in the sea!) and, when the tide is out, there is a beach. There is no vehicle access to the camping pitches, however the site provides a wheelbarrow for carrying your kit and it's only a 100m walk. The Boy John, a converted fishing vessel, is available for groups to use as a communal space or as glamping accommodation. It features a sleeping cabin, piano, log-burning stove, furniture and storage, and access to the top deck to enjoy the views.
