Being quite an anti-social person when I go away, I like to get as far away from the crowds as possible, and you can’t get any further away than Ty-Newydd Farm Caravan and Camping site. Located at the tip of the Llŷn Peninsula near Aberdaron, this peaceful site has a lot to offer those looking for a bit of tranquility.
Well laid out, the pitches are marked and spacious with the option of both electric and non-electric hookup, and reasonably priced it is an ideal site for a weekend getaway.
On-site, you will find the usual expected facilities with waste and water points centrally located. At the entrance to the site, you will find the reception and restaurant. We didn’t manage to eat here as we were out early and arrived back early evening so, unfortunately, unable to review the food personally but it was highly recommended by one of the many regulars at the site.
The main toilet and shower block near the top of the site was clean and well maintained, you do have to pay for the showers which, equate to ten pence per minute. You are unable to adjust the temperature of the showers as they are at a preset temperature. Further, into the campsite, there is a separate toilet block so that you don’t have far to walk in the middle of the night.
Campfires are permitted on the site which is one of the main reasons we booked. There’s nothing better than sitting around it of an evening with a beer in hand and listening to the birds and wildlife which are in abundance in these parts. If you like stargazing then this place is definitely for you. Miles away from any light pollution from businesses and street lighting, this place comes alive with its own light show at night. Look up after dark to see which constellations and planets you can find and you may spot the odd shooting star. This is my favourite thing about Ty-Newydd Farm.
About a ten-minute drive from the campsite you’ve got the secluded gem of Whistling Sands where if you are a National Trust member you can park for free. You cannot help but be enthralled by its beauty and the break here can be ideal for surfing and bodyboarding in the right conditions.
Located just a few hundred meters away from the campsite you have your very own mini mountain that you can walk or drive up to where you can watch the sunset over the sea. The view from here is breathtaking and has everything from rugged coastlines, sea views, mountains and unbelievable views of Wales.
