We rang on out way there to let the owner, Emris, know that we would be later than initially expected and gave him a revised ETA. When we didn't arrive at THAT time Emris phoned to make sure we were ok, and gave us direc

Thanks Barry for your comments - greatly appreciated. Turned out to be a good weekend for you after a horrendous trek on the bike on the way to Snowdonia. Very lucky with the weather for Snowdon - it can change in a few hours !! Hope to see you again maybe on your travels !!

We stayed at Llys Derwen for two nights in our campervan, the host Emrys was very friendly and informative, allowing us to choose a pitch and helping us to choose several local things to do during our stay. Emrys also leant us a longer electric hook up lead as ours wasn't quite l

Hi, do you allow bell tents with log burner on your site?
Yes, check with the owners who were most helpful, time of our visit. It is a big site two large flat fields, and some big motorhome type things there with extended awning/sleeping space. Everyone seemed to have BBQ or outside gas stove, so with fire precaution observed, wood burning okay, you are in a Wales Mountain Park after all.
