About Bach Wen Farm

Suitable For

Pod glamping, tent camping and dogs – yes. Campervans and caravans – no.

Nearby

The views and scenery are truly breathtaking with sunsets to die for. A short walk into the village of Clynnog Fawr will take you to the church of St Beuno, while Caernarfon Castle and Bryn Bras Castle are both within driving distance. Aberdaron is on the end of the peninsula and the famous Whistling Sands National Trust beach not too far away either, while Trefor is 5 mins drive away and has a quiet sandy beach where offshore, deep-sea fishing trips & boats can be launched for a fee.

A 15 minute drive to the north edge of the peninsula will get you to Nefyn and Porthdinllaen, stunning National Trust land with a world class golf course and the amazing Ty Coch pub to reward yourself after a walk along the amazing golden sandy beach. Energetic campers can enjoy pony-trekking south of Barmouth (around 1hr drive away) or surfing and water sports a lot closer in Abersoch. Walkers will love Snowdonia National Park , best entered by a trek along The Nantlle Ridge or take on Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales. Portmeirion, the Italianate coastal village, lies about 25 minutes' drive away and cannot be missed. One of the newest attractions to North Wales is Adventure Parc Snowdonia, which has the UK's first artificial surfing wave along with a brand new pump track, indoor adventure climb, high ropes, drop jumps and zip wire, soft play and much more!

Food & Drink

Food can be provided for large groups (with prior arrangement) and the barn has a licensed bar, though opening hours depends on the number of guests. There's a Londis shop, a petrol station and basic commodities in Clynnog Fawr, a five-minute walk away, but no pubs. You'll have to drive to find the nearest, the best of which is the The Ty Coch Inn (01758 720498), overlooking Morfa Nefyn beach, recently billed as one of the best beach bars in the world.

Tranquil, idyllic location and so relaxing

We camped on a large open field which offered beautiful views and a very relaxed feel. We liked the rustic, quirky feeling that the whole site offered and loved that the beach was so accessible. The people that own the site have clearly put a lot of thought into not commercialising it and offer a unique place to camp. We felt very secure during our stay and I’m sure if we’d had any problems they would have been addressed straight away. Our host for the four days was helen, a lovely lady who was always on hand. Their use of upcycling materials and honesty boxes etc reflected on the general ambience and it was such a pleasurable stay. The only downside was that the screens in the showers didn’t give much access to the shower itself, the sinks were a little to small for general face washing especially with the shelves just above. If this is the only fault we can give then it’s only minor and no!reason for us not to return again.

Stunning, truly stunning

The site is easy to find and the welcome from Ben, the host that day, was very excellent. I was shown around, not just my pitch but also everything on the site, there are a lot of facilities (although the bar is obviously not functioning during lockdown). The showers and wash rooms are really well set out and very clean, I would even go so far as to say 'posh' for a campsite. The shower is really warm and the water temperature constant. I was staying on 'the glade', this was a recon visit to check it out before booking again with my wife. The pitch was very sheltered, very big and had its own fridge (!) on the pitch and power supply, firewood is available and a very good price (£5 a bag), lighter fluid was provided on the pitch. The site is well laid out and there are lights leading you to the bathrooms at night. The distance from my pitch to the bathrooms was 2 minutes and the walk to the beach was under two minutes. All the pitches and pods are laid out so you really do feel the place is your own. Then to the beach....I stayed for two nights and I can honestly say that for most of that I had the beach completely to myself, there was no one in any direction, it was amazing. I took food and stove down to the beach and just watched the wildlife and there is lots of it. A couple of other campers came down with paddle boards, the water was perfect for this and I will organise that for next time. This is an oasis of calm where you can switch off and listen to the sound of the waves, it is truly stunning and words really cannot do it justice. We will be back to this site many times.

Great stay in amazing location

We stayed in one of the pods which was lovely, loved that it was semi-isolated and had unbeatable views of the beach and the ocean. Toilet and shower facilities very clean and overall much better than your average campsite. Only things that could maybe be improved is the welcome information could be clearer/more detailed, and the pod we stayed in could’ve been a bit cleaner as there were old cobwebs and dust in the corners and there were lots of trinkets on shelves that were covered in a thick layer of dust which set of my allergies quite bad. However I wouldn’t let this put me off staying again and I would definitely recommend staying here!

Incredible, peaceful stay!

This place is amazing! We stayed in one of the 2 pods onsite. The pods can be quite complex to get to but the site offer trolleys and wheelbarrows. This didn't bother us as it added to part of the experience. The views are superb overlooking the sea. It is about 30 mins drive to mount snowdon so not too far away. It is quiet, peaceful and so relaxed. The staff are friendly too. Will definitely look to stay here again next year.

Fabulous little piece of heaven

We stayed in the Burdock glamping pod and it did not disappoint! Incredible views of the beach and a quirky little path up to it over a stream and up a hill (be warned though it can be a tricky climb with lots of bags to trek to your pod!). We had everything we needed and everyone we met was very helpful. Make sure to bring cash with you for buying extra wood for your outdoor or indoor fire- something we forgot! We'd gladly return again for another peaceful and private getaway
