“Peaceful riverside park with touring and smart chalets” - AA Inspector
Our Inspector's view
Set in the grounds of a former garden centre and enjoying a superb location along the River Seiont, Riverside Camping is approached by an impressive tree-lined drive. Immaculately maintained by the owners, there is a mixture of riverside grassy pitches and fully serviced pitches for caravans and motorhomes. Hardstanding pitches have electric hook up, water and TV connection but no drainage. In addition to the smart amenity blocks, other facilities include an excellent café/restaurant, a volleyball court and boules pitch; river fishing permits are also available. Four 'Riverside Cabans' with wood-burning stoves, picnic gardens and Japanese hot tubs and two mountain-view, luxury tented lodges that include private saunas and sleep six people are offered for hire. This is a haven of peace close to Caernarfon, Snowdonia and offers some great walking opportunities.

About the area
The county of Gwynedd is home to most of the Snowdonia National Park – including the wettest spot in Britain, an arête running up to Snowdon’s summit that receives an average annual rainfall of 4,473mm. With its mighty peaks, rivers and strong Welsh heritage (it has the highest proportion of Welsh-speakers in all of Wales), it’s always been an extremely popular place to visit and live. The busiest part is around Snowdon; around 750,000 people climb, walk or ride the train to the summit each year.
Also in Gwynedd is the Llyn Peninsula, a remote part of Wales sticking 30 miles out into the Irish Sea. At the base of the peninsula is Porthmadog, a small town linked to Snowdonia by two steam railways – the Welsh Highland Railway and the Ffestiniog Railway. Other popular places are Criccieth, with a castle on its headland overlooking the beach, Pwllheli, and Abersoch and the St Tudwal Islands. Elsewhere, the peninsula is all about wildlife, tranquillity, and ancient sacred sites. Tre’r Ceiri hill fort is an Iron Age settlement set beside the coastal mountain of Yr Eifl, while Bardsey Island, at the tip of the peninsula, was the site of a fifth-century Celtic monastery.
