Pick a pub & pitch up
We thought we’d do something different and picked a camp site with a pub, the Snowdonia Park Camp Site. It’s a typically Welsh pub right next to the Welsh Highland Railway that serves simple and home-cooked food & has a variety of delicious Real Ales from their own brewery on offer. It’s neither a gastro pub, nor does it do boutique chic but if sitting outside on rustic benches after a full day of hiking around the Snowdonia Park with a pint in hand while watching the world go by and seeing a lot of locals pop in & out tickles your fancy then this place is definitely worth a visit.
Toilets & showers are across the railway line on the other side of a field (which, I suppose, is a bit inconvenient during the night). It’s a little on the pricey side [£18 per van + £4 for your hook-up] but it’s a nice little basic site with a nice little basic pub & the wilderness literally at your doorstep. I’d score it 4/5 which made us very happy campers ^-^
