- Camp site recommendations, in or around Bala
Looking for a nice quiet campsite in or around the area of Bala, any recommendations please?
A good pub or pubs within walking distance of campsite would be great! 🙂
We are based in Shrewsbury, so anywhere within 1.5 hrs drive would be good. The plan is to do a little walking/chilling, but no riding.Posted 4 years agocommanderMember
Rode from Chester to here the other weekend, camped and back. (no idea how to do links…)
Very nice, quiet and friendly, and only a fiver!Posted 4 years ago
Basic and I’d recommend the field at the farm rather than the river frontage field, walked down there but loos are enough to put you off…
Farm field was ace though. Mile and a bit to the pubs but all the sites in Bala are the same.konagirlMember
Commander, that one near Bala looks nice, I hadn’t realised they split the camping from the caravanning. It can be difficult to find good campsites near pubs in Wales, the nicer, quiter sites tend to be in farmer’s fields in the middle of nowehere, like Cae Du that always get recommendations here (3 miles from Tywyn but fantastic views). You could also try Cae Adda in Trawsfynydd (has a pub in village). But if you are looking to book for this weekend, you might struggle with those. If so, try searching ukcampsite.
EDIT: And if you want quiet, and you are looking for this weekend or any time in the summer holidays, avoid Snowdonia and Bala! Around Llyn Vyrynwy or Clywedog or the Elan valley is just a beautiful.Posted 4 years agonickdaviesSubscriber
Always use Ty Isaf now, I’ve stayed in all of them and its the best if you just want to pitch up and camp. Basic but good, cheap and always a space even on summer bank holiday. The owners of the rest all seem to be a bit mardy, especially if you have a group. It’s normally fairly quiet, no noise late at night. If there’s a few of you, just drive into town and get a cab back (I’ve walked it a few times, not too bad a walk if you have a tinny or too.) Or beers and a fire at the campsite.Posted 4 years ago
