    I can thoroughly recommend Porthclais Farm near St Davids in Pembrokeshire. Its on top of a cliff over looking the sea (Not strictly on a beach but there are beaches nearby). About 3 different fields to choose from depending how close to facilities you want to be.

    Dont know abot snowdonia 😐


    Just stayed here over the weekend in the camper to drag the kids up Snowdon (actually they did great considering the weather):-

    Nice new campsite, seemed quite friendly regarding dogs and kids – though not much for the kids on the site itself in terms of swings and skate boards/roller skates and cycling were not allowed on site. But convenient for Snowdon and Llanberis. Only downside were the midgies – I got eaten alive and they confined us to the van from about 8pm. but not a problem if you went out for the evening.


    Just come back from nolton haven in Pembrokeshire, newgale beech just down the road is dog friendly & it has a campsite opposite thats popular with campervans and surfers, dont know what the facilities are like though. Newport beach just the other side of Fishguard can be driven onto and is dog friendly too. Beautiful area.


    Have a look at Graig Wen near Dolgellau, great spot, sounds like the kind of site you’re after. All dog friendly, although can’t run around without a lead as there is livestock around. Access onto the Mawddach Trail and lots of dog friendly beaches not too far away, Aberdovey, Barmouth, Harlech etc.
    On the Morris Leisure theme, theirs at Betws-y-Coed is lovely too, great location for getting about Snowdonia and lots to do walking from the site.

    For snowdonia I love this place

    On a lake, very friendly, camp fires and the sort of site where the kids run around til the sun goes down. Although might look at that Dolgellau next time Spud.

    What do you have in the way of campsite recommendations?

    Looking for 2 campsites:

    1 near a dog friendly beach the other in snowdonia.

    small campervan friendly, standard facilities (loos/showers) but no clubhouse etc but a bit more than a tap and a deep drop. good for kids and dogs allowed.

    aiming for pembrokeshire or cardigan bay for the beach site.

    Was all up for Mwnt site but then found out there’s a dog ban on the beach in the summer.


    Cae Du (theres two quite close to each other but one is inland and one is right on the beach).

    In fact I’ve even used my google fu for you:

    – this isn’t the one you want (although it looks good!):

    – this IS the one you want:

    Mis-read the post. The above gives you Snowdonia (kinda) AND the dog friendly beach 🙂


    This place is ace but the beach is stony if that matters. It’s 10 miles south of Caernarfon at the corner where the Lleyn starts to stretch out.

    Another vote for Cae Du (the beach one), although be aware that there is a railway line along one edge of the field, which we weren’t aware of when we pitched our tent 😀

    Heritage Coast Campsite at Monknash, not far from Bridgend.

    Lovely campsite where you can choose an isolated spot with views over the sea. A 20 minute walk down to a beautiful massive and deserted sandy beach (but not an hour or so either side of high tide), and one of the best pubs you’ll find anywhere, Plough & Harrow.

    We go there 2 or 3 times a year. Much nicer than the Gower and not so far to drive

    cheers for all the suggestions, i’ve found a beach site: Gupton Farm at Freshwater west. Looks good so booked.

    Just need a suitable snowdonia site now, will look at the ones above. I recall staying at Llyn Gwynant before and it being ok.
