The Owner Says

These cleverly designed tents are spacious but cosy benefiting from material nearly 3 times as thick as most other tipis or bell tents and also benefit from being fully lined with luxury quilting so you can enjoy them any time of the year too be it Winter, Spring or Summer!

We have a 12 month licence so you can book all year round to fit your break around your free time and we also have a fully accessible toilet/wetroom with easy parking for disabled persons .

The tents are powered by solar battery with cosy fairy lights and plenty of power for your devices. Logs for the fire are locally sourced from a managed estate and seasoned naturally. Food is also locally sourced where possible e.g. eggs from the farm near the site and local meats.

About Hadfer Campsite

Suitable For

Glampers, campers, tents, campervans, dogs (on leads), groups (by arrangement) – yes. Stag and hen parties – no. Under 18s are permitted but must not be left alone/unsupervised. the site probably isn't that suitable for very young children and caters mainly to adults. Campervans are permitted but caravans are not.


The site’s barn is the perfect area for socialising with the communal campfire the perfect setting to swap stories from the slopes. It’s just 200 metres to an oak woodland that’s been designated as a Site of Scientific Special Interest (SSSI) where you can see bats and woodland birds. The campsite is on the edge of Snowdonia National Park and opposite Bwlch Y Moch, considered one of the best places in Wales for trad climbing. A noticeboard on site displays names of local climbing and adventure sports instructors. The national park offers almost endless opportunities for climbing and walking with Pen-y-Pas, a starting point for walks to the top of Snowdon, just 10 miles and a drive of around 30 minutes away. Hadfer is just over a mile from the harbour town of Porthmadog where there are shops, eateries and railway stations for 3 heritage railways: the linked Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways and the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway – which has a museum in the town too. Chartered boat trips for sea fishing or wildlife watching are available from Porthmadog as well. Other sites within easy reach are the Italianate village of Portmeirion (less than 3 miles away) and the Glaswyn Wildlife Osprey Centre. The closest recommended beaches are 3 miles away at Black Rock Sands, Borth Y Gest and Criccieth. The latter is a Victorian seaside resort with shops and restaurants and the medieval Criccieth Castle. There’s also trout and salmon fishing on the Afon/Glaslyn Estuary and coarse fishing at Esiteddfa Fisheries (01766 522148). Further afield the pretty village of Beddgelert, Sygun Copper Mine, Zip World at the Llechwedd Slate Caverns and the town of Pwllheli on the Llyn Peninsula are within a 30-minute drive.

Food & Drink

The on-site Eric Jones Café uses local produce for breakfast, lunches and snacks. Breakfast (or vouchers if preferred) is included for campers and glampers and packed lunches are also available. It’s a 10-minute walk or 2-minute drive to Tremadog where there are 2 pubs The Union Inn (01766 512748), for traditional, hearty pub grub, and The Golden Fleece (01766 512421) which serves modern-style pub food. There’s also a fine-dining restaurant Y Sgwar (01766 515451). There’s a wide range of eateries as well as shops for supplies in Porthmadog, a mile down the road. For a locally-brewed pint, try The Australia (01766 515957) which is the brewery tap for Porthamdog’s own brewery, The Purple Moose.
