Last minute booking, the owners were so welcoming and kind. Met some lovely people who was also camping. We had a beautiful spot in the campsite looking at the mountains and rolling countryside. Me & my partner would definitely visit here again.

We've stayed in both the camping barn and B&B, both lovely. We were lucky and had the camping barn to ourselves when we stayed, I don't know how much I'd have enjoyed staying in it if there was a load of other people in it, but I suppose it wouldn't differ from any other regular hostel. The B&B was great also the second time we stayed at Cae Gwyn. We arrived late (10pm ish) on one occasion and the owner stayed up to meet us and let us into B&B, raised no issue. We were also allowed come back and shower and wash our bikes one evening after we'd checked out that morning which I thought was a nice touch. Within easy cycling distance to the trail centre and you can leave your car parked at Cae Gwyn, saves paying for parking. Lovely spot to wake up on a sunny morning and have a tea/coffee (supplied) sat overlooking the farm animals and streams, shame the llamas aren't there any more. All in all no complaints. Would stay again.

Room Tip: Hayloft East or West are the bigger rooms so ask for those if booking B&B over the phone.

We've stayed at Cae Gwyn many times on different biking trips to North Wales. We've hired out the camping barn with a small group, we've been as a pair in one of the caravans and twice as a couple in the B&B barn. In all cases it has satisfied our needs. In terms of the camping options there are adequate toilets, showers and a self catering kitchen underneath the barn. The addition of a microwave, fridge, toaster even, all make camping a much more comfortable prospect. Inside the B&B we found the rooms to be cosy and clean. We cannot comment on breakfast as we've always needed to leave early and opted with a without breakfast option which is available slightly cheaper. The site feels safe being on its own just off the big road. There's parking, a spot to wash your bikes and a secure bike store (although some wall/ground anchors would make that even better). It is slightly isolated in that respect in terms of shops and pubs etc but you can drive to places like Barmouth or Blaenau Ffestiniog. We like Betws y Coed. The booking cannot be done online. You need to ring up and sort over the phone and write down your dates if you're forgetful like me as there's no email confirmation or anything like that. Although it seems pretty old school we've found it means Cae Gwyn usually has space for us as it's a little bit more of a hidden gem in that respect not being available through the 3rd party booking sites like most establishments. A good base if you're riding Coed Y Brenin, Gwydir trails, Penmachno, Antur etc. We'll certainly be back as it is comfortable, offers adequate facilities to take care of yourself, is well located and reasonably priced.

This was a great campsite for its close proximity to Coed y brenin forest and mountain biking was the main reason for our trip. Snowdon is also a short drive away. However, we were so close to driving home 3 out of our 4 night stay due to the number of midges around, it wasn't possible to sit outside past 5pm, eating food was not enjoyable, even with the advertised midge spray this doesn't stop them swarming around. I know this is not a fault of the farm, and is likely a problem in many areas during the summer but we are both regular campers and have never before experienced this. Facilities were eco friendly and basic but fine, fridge and freezer facilities and microwave. Bike lock up barn also. Owner helpful and friendly, lambs around the farm at the time which was nice. Great price, our experience no fault of owners just would avoid in the summer.

Response from swooze21, Owner at Cae Gwyn Farm and Nature Reserve
Responded 21 Aug. 2018
Thank you for your review. Unfortunately due to the nature of our ground and Welsh weather midges can usually be a problem in June, July & August which is why we sell 'Smidge'. There were a few days in June when they were particularly bad but due to the very hot summer we've been relatively midge free for July and August. You don't say when you actually camped with us but it sounds like you were extremely unlucky. This is our tenth summer here and it has definitely been the best one for not having midges. Sue & Dave, Owners of Cae Gwyn Farm Holidays

Can't fault this campsite! Me and a few friends stayed here Saturday to Monday and it was perfect for our mountain biking. All the facilities are good and if you're looking for a place to stay and have bikes this is highly recommended as they have a bike lock-up and cleaning area which is ideal. The views are amazing too, the whole surrounding area is breathtaking, espeacially when your first wake up in the morning- (attached picture of the view from my van.) Me and my friends will definitely be coming to stay again in the future!
