views across the bay are absolutely stunning and you are within easy

have visited this site twice already this year and are heading back
later today. It is a fabulous 5* site where you are able to go and
relax with your pet's, as we have more than the average 2/3 dogs we
find it difficult to find sites that will accept all of us. The
owners have been very welcoming and friendly and greet us in both
English and Welsh they have put together lot's of local information
but are happy to help with any additional information you want.

relaxing there's plenty of things to do nearby.

booked this site at the last minuet. So lucky to get a pitch on this
very beautiful site.
site is very well maintained, the pitches are extremely spacious.
One of the best things about this site is that the owners have
thought carefully about their pitches, whilst more could be added
it's nice that they have chosen not to and thus allowing fewer
pitches gives a lovely open feel to the site. The Willows campsite
is very relaxing and quiet.
shower/toilet and washing up facilities are 5* immaculately clean
with the added benefit of some of the best views I've seen from a
dog exercise field is spacious enough for a good game of ball. The
children's playing area is next to the dog field, goal post and a
swing ball are provided. No need for anything more as this area is

have just returned from a 2 night stay in the Eye-Pod and it was
fantastic. First of all we checked in at the reception and the owners were
so lovely and very helpful. We drove the car to the Eye-Pod and the site
was immaculately kept, we noticed that all the tents had an excellent
sized pitch, plenty of room between tents and amazing views. So we arrive
at the Eye-Pod and once inside it was amazing, the pictures on the website
did not do it justice. TV, fridge, kettle and plenty of plug sockets and
storage. It felt so light and airy with two porthole windows which
opened and a large star gazing window in the ceiling which has a clever
cover so the sunlight doesn't disturb you in the morning. We were lucky to
have a clear night sky and lying in bed looking at the starry sky was
wonderful ...so relaxing. We found it got quite chilly in abersoch in the
evening but not in the Eye-Pod, all cosy and warm but if we had felt cold,
no worries as there was a heater inside we could have used. Picnic bench
outside was great as we had a BBQ in the evening. The toilet block was the
cleanest I've come across .This was the perfect break for us, no tent to
set up, just arrived and settled straight in. The owner came around on our
first night to make sure we were happy and we were, it was so quiet and
peaceful. I highly recommend a stay in the Eye-Pod , it's a unique
experience and we will definitely be booking again 10/10.

Hi there! Thought I simply must write to
say what a super time I had recently at The Willows. It was spotless! It
was idyllic! And I was privileged to be one of your first guests to
stay in your Eye-Pod. What a fantastic achievement, in
designing and building this superb construction. To be able to lie in bed
and see the stars, being snug and warm was such a delight.
I did have a nosey peek at the Hobbits
whilst there, but the Eye-Pod takes the biscuit in being so much larger,
so pleased I chose what I did.
Well done to you both, I'm sure the

Check-in was easy with a £10 deposit needed for the electronic

looked pretty level too. Miles checked that we were able to
reverse the van and we saw him helping others onto their
pitches. Anna popped down to check everything was fine once we
were set up. She offered to lend us extra pipes for the drains
if we needed them. The pitches were of adequate size and
arranged around the outside of the field, meaning that we
didn't feel 'surrounded'.

toilets, plenty of hot water, hair dryers, motion sensor

to get anywhere (no footpaths or pavements). The owners are
very helpful with directions and the dog field is a very nice
extra. All in all a lovely place. Children are not allowed to
play near the camping areas which was excellent and they have
a field of their own.
site is quiet, well maintained and organised. The owners are
always very helpful, friendly and able to offer advice about
things to do and see based on a very good local knowledge.
Each pitch has plenty of space and the overall feel of the

the stunning views. The facilities are always clean and
regularly checked by the owners. The extra facilities like the
fridge, freezer, tv, phone charger work well. There is a
separate playing field and dog walking so other campers are
not disturbed. The situation of the site means that you can
readily explore the peninsula. There is a bus stop at the end
of the road and many footpaths you can take.

I stayed at The Willows during May 2011 with my wife
and our 2 year old boy. We stayed in one of the new 'Hobbits'
which was a charming and cosy cabin.
Upon arrival we
received a very warm welcome from Anna who provided us with
all the information we needed for our stay. Anna and Miles
really take pride in their campsite and they ought to be very
proud of what they have achieved: the toilet block is
immaculate and wouldn't look out of place in a swanky hotel,
whilst the grounds are beautifully maintained. The washing up
block was great too, with fabulous views overlooking the bay.
Life inside a Hobbit is very cosy indeed. Despite the
cold and (very) windy weather, we remained extremely
comfortable and didn't need to use the heater - despite
daytime temperatures not getting above about 12 degrees for
the duration of our stay.
Cooking is not allowed
inside the Hobbit, so if you're planning a trip, be warned -
you will be spending a lot of time cooking and eating outside.
We took a tarp, a windbreak, a kitchen stand and a couple of
gas stoves which did the job nicely.
What could make
this site better? A play area for children would have been
fantastic and made it a little easier to keep our son
entertained. Other than that, the site is perfect - a tranquil

and I wish we had saved it til last as no other site can compare to
this one facilities-wise.
The toilet block was luxurious and
warm, the dish washing block was really cute, clean and had the most
amazing views you could hope for whilst washing up.
was a great little info shed which gave directions, walks, menus of
local eateries and doggy advice (much appreciated). Although there
is no shop on site they do sell some local produce which would be
great for a barbie.
There is a large field for dog
exercising which I believe is also to be a play area too [two areas,
fenced]. I really appreciated the fact that the owners do warn
dog owners about the local neighbouring farmers having guns - we
have been to many sites in the western isles where there are sheep
nearby but there is no info regarding dog exercise areas and local
We toured around the area and enjoyed a
coastal walk and a tour of beaches. We also had a lovely meal at The
Anna and Miles were extremely friendly, laid back, and
most importantly, seemed to take pride in the site and genuinely
enjoy dealing with people.
Value for money? absolutely! This
is the most expensive campsite we have ever used and it was worth
every penny - I wouldn't actually say it is overpriced, I would say
that you get what you pay for (and more).

attraction called (hobbits) they have two of these, and are much the
same as camping pods, they are beautiful inside and outside,very
warm and cosy. We stayed the 12th of march for the weekend and the
weather was horrible but we had a great time. The site is one of the
best we have stayed in (we do a lot of glamping as well as camping)
and have travelled the country looking for those great sites you
always want to go back to. This is one of them.
who run the site are great (friendly) as well as the couple who help
run the site, nothing is too much trouble for them. The shower and
toilet facilities are amazing, you almost feel bad for using them
they are that clean. Real hand soap and real loo rolls all supplied.
The facilities to wash up those dishes are indoors too, with fridge
& freezers for your food and supplied ice packs for your ice
box. There is a microwave avail (you need 20p's) for this. They have
a small summerhouse which has a freeview TV in so you won't miss you

Shower blocks are superb with plenty of hot water and
ample toilets/showers and wash basins.
The washing up
facilities are good again with plenty of hot water and everything is
kept very clean and tidy. Large bins for all the rubbish and plenty
of water points. You are also given a cable to boost your TV
reception, however we found we did not need it, freeview had the
best signal we have found anywhere.
The access for caravans
is great with plenty of room to manouver into your space and you
have room for awing and car on each pitch.
The dog facilities
are brilliant a large field that is mown with plenty of room to let
the dogs have a good run and play.
The views are amazing from
the site and there is a summerhouse which has a lot of local
information/leaftlets inside. Anna & Miles are always very
helpful with any questions.
There is a small shop in the
village and Llanbedroch has a Londis supermarket. There are plenty
of shops/supermarkets etc within a short drive.
plenty of walks which can be started from the site and lots of
beaches and coves to explore within a short drive. We went
blackberry picking in the lanes by the campsite, very tasty
especially with apples & crumble!
We highly recommend
this site and will definitely be back for another visit, its a
lovely site in a great part of Wales with welcoming hosts.

Hi Anna & Miles
Unit - Campervan
Month - October
Nights - 2
Arrived on a Saturday teatime and were met
by Miles who showed us to our pitch and helped us "level up" the
van. The first thing that struck us were the fantastic views
from our pitch; absolutely stunning!
There were another couple pitched up and
could see that a couple of the touring caravans were occupied, which
meant there weren't that many on the site......however ALL of the
facilities were open to us and the shower / toilet block had
exceptional facilities, from heated towel rail to piping hot power
showers. These facilities were always spotlessly clean and
lovely and warm too.
The site is immaculate....obvious signs that
Miles and Anna take great pride in their site. Lawns / fields
were well laid out and maintained to a high standard. Even the
exercise field for the dogs is tended to.
The summer house / chalet contained loads of
useful information about the surrounding area and housed sample
menus from a range of restaurants and pubs. We visited the
Ship Inn just down in the village and had a great pub meal.
It's a walkable distance; downhill all the way, but the dreaded walk
back all the way up :-)
Llanbedrog beach is about a 5 min drive and
is a beautiful beach; quieter than the main beaches in
Abersoch. Abersoch, depending on which route you take, is
about 10 - 15 mins drive away, and houses a number of small boutique
shops, a bank, post office, Londis, couple of pubs, fish and chip
shop (best chips we've had) and a number of
Hells Mouth beach, popular with surfers and
body-boarders, is about 15 mins drive.
As the site is situated off the main road,
you don't even hear the traffic, just the occasional car passing the
lane at the side/back of the site. It is an idyllic site and
we were very reluctant to leave.....we will be back and will
definately stay for a full week next time.

Dear Anna and Miles
Just a short note to say 'thank you' for
making our stay at your site so pleasurable despite a problematic
start. As novices with the camper van your help and advice was
invaluable and your kindness when we experienced mechanical problems
was much appreciated - made us feel so much better! 'Yr
Helyg, The Willows' is a beautiful and relaxing place to stay, well
maintained and spotlessly clean, making the morning shower an
absolute pleasure. However, your personal care and attention to your
guests is what makes your site second to none in our experience - we
hope to be back before too long!

Miles & Anna,
have been camping for many years and have stayed in acclaimed
,accredited, award winning etc etc sites, however we can safely say
that your site has set a new bar height in every area.
the moment we made our booking we felt completely confident in our
selection and when we arrived after a long drive our welcome could
not have been warmer.
entire site is kept immaculate and the attention to detail is a real
credit to your both. You made us feel so welcome and we could
see how much pride you take.
can not continue without mentioning the toilet block, it would put
many 4 star hotels to shame, modern, clean and well equipped.
views across the bay were stunning, I found myself lost in the views
on the way back from the toilet block.
doubt this is not only the most wonderful site we have ever staying
in, but the area has so much to offer for all. I could not
recommend this site enough to give it justice, just to say there is
nothing else I have seen that comes close in 20 years of
you so much for making our weekend special and we look forward to
seeing you again soon.

This was our first visit to 'the willows' and we will
certainly be back, in fact we have booked two more weekends already.
We go camping a lot in the Peak District but I have to say
this is the nicest site we have ever been lucky enough to stay at.
The facilities are immaculate, the views stunning and the owners
very helpful. There is a brand new toilet and shower block that puts
other sites to shame.

Dear Miles and Anna
Just really wanted to drop you a quick
line to say a big thank you for your hospitality this last weekend.
As complete (and very uncertain!) caravan novices, you have shown us
how you don't need to forego creature comforts when staying in a
caravan: the shower blocks (super-clean and super-hot water) are
better than we could ever have hoped for; the pitches are quiet and
spacious, and facilities such as a complimentary freezer an
additional "plus". The fact that you care so very much about what
you provide is clear at every turn, and what you have created is a
real credit to you.
So, we won't be selling the caravan just

Dear Anna and Miles.
Arrived home a few hours
ago after spending the Easter break on your 1st class caravan park.
Both Ian and myself would like to say a very BIG thank you to you
both on making us feel very welcome. We are quite new to caravaning
but during our time visiting camp sites we must say that your site
is the best we have stayed at, your new shower/toilet block is worth
the journey from Congleton to Abersoch alone. We hope to be one of
the lucky ones to get a chance to stay there again after checking
our holiday schedule. We would recommend anyone to visit The Willows
and be greeted by such a helpful and welcoming couple. Thanks again
both for a lovely few days.
This site is just
what you need to get away from the stress of everyday life.
With a beautiful setting in the hills above Abersoch and stunning views over Cardigan
Bay, The Willows is one of the quietest and most relaxing camp sites in the area. My wife and I have
been coming to Abersoch for over 30 years
and we have never found better. The site owners, Anna and
Miles, couldn't be more helpful, and with a brand new 5 star
toilet block built just this year, this is the place to visit
whether you are camping or touring. We couldn't recommend the
site highly enough. 5 star +++++

Took a mid week break here, the sites pleasantly located
sufficiently out of Abersoch for peace and quiet but handy enough to
explore Abersoch if you want.
The owners were a very genuine
and friendly and welcoming to campers. They were helpful in giving
local information there is also an information cabin on site which
is a good source of reference for what's available in the area,
places to eat etc.
The pitches were split between 3 grassed
camping fields level and well spaced. The toilet block was adequate
(20p for showers),I understand this is being upgraded in the near
future laundry facilities are also available.
Admittedly mid week we were impressed just how quiet the site with
the impression thankfully that rowdy behaviour isn't

This has got to be close to my perfect camp site -
spectacular location in rural setting just above Abersoch, with
amazing sea views. It isn't cheap but there is a strict limit on
pitches and occupancy, so you're not camped on top of somebody else.
The pitches are well marked out. The washblocks and showers are
perfectly adequate, although due to be redeveloped in the near
future. Very friendly owners and all the facilities you can think
of, including secure access, freezers, local produce, excellent
tourist information. I visited with my brother, but this is an ideal
site for families and we will be back soon. PS midgies bad at dusk
so take some repellent - we found that Jungle Formula was very
friend and I stayed here for a long weekend, what a fantastic site, lovely
and clean. We arrived at 1am in the morning after getting lost and I must
say Anna and Miles were on call to give great directions!. Clean showers,
and plenty of space to pitch our tent -with a lovely view of the open
countryside, snowdonia and cardigan bay (lovely blue sea). We will definitely be back, friendly and
